Ep. 010: The risks of investing in alt-coins in retirement portfolios

by | Mar 24, 2018

John, a 51 year old listener, from Oakland, CA, writes about the risks of investing in alt-coins:

“Love your podcast. You have the levelest head in crypto podcasts. Can I make one suggestion…..plz change your intro music. It sounds like bad music to intro every horrible business audiobook ive ever listened to :-).

I’d love to hear you address how/why other coins are so tied to bitcoin and if/when that will change. Also I know you are focused on the “big” coins. But I think we are seeing a class of other legitimate “use” coins starting to emerge…love to hear your comments on that.”

“Remember, this is not a game. It’s not a competition. It’s not entertainment. When you are dealing with having to fund potentially 40+ years in retirement with the money you have managed to accumulate, investing is deadly serious business.”

— Kim Snider
