Ep. 015: Ask Kim: Is James Altucher A Scam?

 

Today I am going to be taking on a question I was asked, coming out of the episode a couple of weeks ago, titled “Should you pay for a cryptocurrency investing course?

 

Hi Kim; I appreciate your knowledge and experience as well the sanity and approach you bring to crypto investing. I mostly agree with you regarding the things you say, however, I was taken aback today when you seemed critical of James Altucher. I know you must have included him in your list/example of big-name crypto gurus to be wary of for a reason and would appreciate you elaborating as to why.
