I grew up poor. Like ultra mega Uber poor. I finally started getting my own money way later in life literally 0 help from parents.

I don’t get how you guys have the balls to dump tens of thousands of coins. I’m freaking out doing 100s.

We are degenerates. Also I didn't grow up poor. Not rich at all by any means but I do have family support if things go south.

>> No.21563548

Poor to a degree as well, I'm to scared to invest honestly. When you're surrounded by money it probably becomes more novel as you age and the fear of losing it seems less significant.

>> No.21563575

i'm lucky enough to have a decent job where i can save up money, and I'm typically very financially conservative. i don't spend money on video games and eating out all the time like a lot of people my age do, so i don't feel too irresponsible throwing a paycheck or two's worth of money at something that may turn into a fortune a few years down the line

I grew up poor too. I've wagecucked enough to know I don't want to do it anymore so I invested what I could and it looks like it's working. Once you want it you'll try to get it.

True, my family is so poor I live with my dad in his parents basement. Most people are afraid of having to move back in to their parents own individual home ( which is more of a social fear than economic fear), I don't even have the option and forget about being given money lmao.

Because you don't understand opportunity cost. NOT dumping tens of thousands means you are guaranteed to remain poor in your 80s while still wagecucking. Stay poor.

Mental illness, tragedy in the family, childhood abuse passed down generations, etc. Location is important too.

Where I'm from their definition of "making it" is landing a job at frito lay or some other distribution center making $17/hr so you can afford more booze to forget how pathetic your life really is.

>> No.21563870

I rationalized it like this:

If I go all in on these assets and win, I get a jump start on my personal finances and potentially win big. If I lose, I'm still broke, and nothing changes.

Now imagine if I just threw in play money. Now if I win nothing changes, and if I lose nothing changes.

I would evaluate why you're here right now. Course I've been studying this market for 3 years non stop, finding my long term bets and placing them, cause I see potential. Now I have more money than I've ever had in my life. Scared money makes no money

When it comes to big players on biz there are two types: people who can actually afford it, and poor/average people who got in early, made shit tonnes, and are disconnected from it all. I fall into the latter, I move around tens of thousands at the click of a button that I honestly would feel sick to my stomach to do if it were cash, but since it's magic internet coins I feel nothing

Take risks in life. I would be more afraid of being average without taking risk than I would be afraid of being poor but having taken risks. That's the difference between your average joe and the billionaires.

Grew up in a trailer house w 6 siblings, fuck off
I lost 75% of my net work in crypto in the bear cycle post Gox, I sold Eth at $2 from the presale. Losing all your net worth, and missing out on 10 mil both fuck with your head. Buy Bitcoin - there's an 80% chance it 10Xs over a long enough time horizon. Long time horizons can slash your risk.
Ignore the degens, most of them (and me) are playing with gains we made from 17

I grew up poor and I do it, literally lost thousands of rug pulls as well. You need to take risk to make it op. You won't get anywhere being poor and being safe 100% of the time. Even now I wish I could be more ballsy like some anons I see because half the time I feel like a pussy not being even more riskier. You just need to weight up the risk vs reward op.

I use to think that too until I realized doing that is murder in this game. You're going to jizz every time you make 200 and consider suicide every time you lose money. Its not good and it makes you sloppy, you're going to fall into all the rookie traps.

Not many people start trading crypto with thousands of dollars. Most of us worked our way into being able to make trades over $1000 without worry. I came back to crypto in March 2020 when ESH was pumping with $250 initially to invest. Today I made a trade using 4 ETH and thought about how crazy this is considering I was a homeless heroin/meth addict 2 years ago.

When profit chasing the most important thing is don't lose money. That's even more important then making gains because without money you can't invest and if you get into enough decent coins eventually you're going to make gains.
What I do now is when I gain 50%-100% and want to continue holding I pull my initial investment, Then pull 25% at 3X and 25% at 4x. After that I let the rest ride because taking profits is what this is all about. If I gain 50% or more on a PND I usually just pull everything. Sometimes I regret it but most of the time I don't except for XOR and SWAP I wish I would've held those.

Get rid of your poor slave mindset and start investing your extra money.. I find that so many people dont want to fuck with the markets at all because they think it's a waste of time or some bullshit. They are always poorfags too. But there's money to be made if you learn.

>> No.21567572

Not all of us grew up middle class, a lot of us come from broken homes and had to start working at 18 so we couldn't go to college and some of us have lost money to investments, divorce and addiction. Im in all those categories but after grinding and getting sober I finally have a 401K, decent pay of $22 hourly with unlimited OT and a investment fund.

It took me two years of wagie working to accumulate my LINK stack after I got in late at $1 per LINK I used to freak out over a hundred dollars but once you see your portfolio drop in value every large amount it dumps and every large amount you make again increases your tolerance threshold for risk.

Of course someone who's new to investing is going to worry about their money, they've never risked it before. I first started in boomer stocks thinking I had time to buy LINK when it was sub $1. I remember my first test investment was buying a couple shares of AMD which I promptly lost $20 and was pissed off about for the rest of the day. Now my portfolio is six figures, I made more in two weeks (and sold the top, unironically) with LINK than my old manager makes in a year. And I did it sitting on my ass playing minecraft and watching anime. $200 is a small fee for trading, it's literally shit.

The point is you get used to it, assuming you don't sell and quit forever.

Unironically NGMI with that mindset.
