    I’m into anything low risk right now. For me, that means more mutual fund than anything else- which is kind of a mixed bag. I get nervous about the higher risk stuff especially since I’m sort of looking long term- retirement et al.

    What about crypto? I never got on that train and I’m regretting it. However, I still don’t quite get the block chain concept...and NFTs. Like what’s happening there.

    Tl/dr- I love following financial trends but I’m Uber risk averse

    I missed the crypto train as well, although I’m long term bearish on the future of Bitcoin, etc... it has no intrinsic value, too volatile to be a currency, and it has a huge environmental impact.

    In terms of low risk, I like a Vanguard ETF that tracks the S&P 500.

    I'll just say when it comes to stocks..... if y'all like chicken, please start dining at El Pollo Loco (currently trading at 17.5 ).

    I just need to cut my losses and look into something less... I dunno, less 'chicken'.

    I Was going to share my current stuff and realized...interwebs are scary. That said, I just listened to a Radiolab while running that covered the creation of Zcoin. I still don’t understand decentralization but I love the idea of disruption. It’s also such a weird game in terms of human trust and how/why we trust a paper dollar over other things. And NYT just did a deep dive into NFTs and that was an interesting maze. And do we start thinking about meme stocks!?!?

    Agreed on the disruption. Blockchain and digital payments are the future. The question is which if any of the current ones will be it. Governments and big companies are already creating their own versions of crypto.

    Environmental impact? How so? More energy is wasted on Google searches than mining Bitcoin.
    Fun fact- just one Google search uses the energy equivalent of powering a 60W lightbulb for 17 seconds...think of how many Google searches are done every second, minute, hour, day....globally...

    But Google is also carbon neutral. Can the same be said of cryptocurrencies?

    It takes 72000 gigawatts to mine one Bitcoin. Imagine if it became the global currency and the amount of energy it would require.

    That was Dogecoin which was essentially created as joke but has turned into a speculative bubble.
