Can you actually make it as a poorfag? I come from poverty. I'm considering getting into this shit to try and afford a house, and some basic financial security at some point. I've been playing with crypto for two months and tripled my shitty little 1000 dollar investment. Getting a house or anything close requires extremely consistent luck.

I know three people throughout my life who were investors. They weren't hardcore, born and raised, investors, they all fucking came from money they could afford to lose. They were all around 18-22 when they decided to do it, one actually doubled his money, the other two lost tens of thousands of dollars and still could have afforded the type of house I dream of one day with what their parents gave to them. All three of them could live more comfortably than I dream of, but hope to be billionaires one day. One of them posted on snapchat once "my mom inherited five million in 2008 and considered investing in apple but didn't, that'd be worth so much now" as if it was a relatable problem.

All three of these guys just fucking lost money and were still completely fine. I've worked 6 months saving every cent for 15k and would be risking everything investing it. It feels fucking hopeless. I just want a comfy life, and it fucking sucks seeing people who have that as a given deciding, "might as well try and be a multibillionaire, no harm if I lose my investment"

I've also contacted all of them about their investing experience and advice, my 500 dollars has had way fucking more success than theirs in terms if return (they bought mostly hype shit and tried swinging) yet I had nowhere near enough to make it. I'm priced out of any amount of success.

>> No.29882695

If you tripled a your stack 4 more times you're up to a quarter of a million dollars. and if you did that in 2 months you could be there by the end of the year. stop whining stop comparing yourself to others and focus on what you did to triple it the first time.

>> No.29882971

I just feel hopeless
>dude buy LINK
>bought it at 15 and sold when it was crabbing around 23
>traded it for GRT at .40 and sold it for .80 right before it mooned to almost 3 dollars
>bought a little doge because the hype was insane

Made x3, but it was all an extreme amount of luck. Literally everyone would be a billionaire if you could just learn this shit by the book. One fuck up and I'm done. It fucking sucks being on the edge of failure.

>> No.29883219

Big returns require patience. If you feel that one fuck up will ruin you, it means your portfolio is too risky. It doesn't sound like your income is too high so you absolutely want to avoid limiting your losses.
Also, even if you land a house and some basic financial security, it only slightly mitigates the existential dread. Money is a palliative, not a cure

>> No.29883349

huge gains are made over bull runs anon. you should have secure long holds like btc, ltc, or monero etc justso that you can always have something in case you fuck up that rises dramatically when a bull run happens.
be patient, remember that 'get rich quick' is lowkey a scam and 'accumulating wealth over time' is real.

Like I said, poorfag from an impoverished family, 3k was my start, I'm scratching 10k. Its fucking depressing that my hopes of getting a decent house at some point require either astronomical amounts of luck, or 10 years of working without spending anything along with holding safe investments. Meanwhile I've met people my age who are aiming to be worth 10+ million and won't be hurting if they lose what they've been given to invest.

Like I mentioned earlier, I started out with Crypto and feel like a fucking idiot for the points I sold at, but its better than nothing I guess. I guess my main goal was just realizing profit, but I had a x5 with GRT but sold it at a x2. Missed opportunities are obviously a part of the investing world, but I won't get anywhere on these small ass doubles and triples.

If you tripled your stack in two months, you should be fine. Just remember to never put in more than your willing to lose, the market is designed to ruin people like you, be afraid when others are greedy, be greedy when others are afraid, and ygmi.

>> No.29884166

Fair point. I don't even want extravagant riches, my goal is literally just a good home to raise a family. Boomers literally fucking destroyed this. I hate Biden but I hate Trump even worse for coming from a bloodline of land leeches. Investing is one thing, but within the last 100 years societies around the world have been destroyed by people of some level of means treating land and property as an investment. A side hustle for one diabetic 60 year old is a home gone for a young family. It makes me fucking seethe.

My advice is to do whatever it takes to increase your income first before investing.
By “whatever it takes”, i mean literally whatever the fuck it takes. The system is rigged against you completely, but you dont have to play by its rules - remember that.

35yo poverty here. i was seriously down to my last $100 last month. i had lost hope ever making it and started applying for any shit job that was making $10+. when the GME shit was hitting the news and RH started blocking buys, i knew the antsy normies couldn't stand having unspent funds in their account and that they'd gravitate towards some meme shit instead. i went all in on doge at .12, made $750+ overnight. awesome, i can live another month without working but i still not enough to make it long term.
two weeks later, i woke up hungover and laid in bed looking at my phone. saw a shitload of single moms on facebook screaming about Mcdonalds pokemon cards. i immediately drove to every mickys in the area and made $500 profit by the next day. still selling them now, just had my best day today and im up like 15k+ since i started. and i still have 90% of the cards left to sell. markets prob gonna crash hard by the time im out of cards, then i'll pick up a ton of cheap coins and hold till the next cycle.
i actually think im going to make it.

If you want to make it as a poorfag get a job and live cheaply, put 60% of your paycheck into coins that'll appreciate over time

Never said to go all in on BTC. Doing that is retarded.

Sorry dude, but unless you're a 200+ IQ super-genius, which (you) and I are not, that will not work in 99.999% of cases. Sure, you might get lucky. But what happens if you don't? You lose everything. If you want to become filthy rich, you need a basis of wealth to bounce off of. If you're like OP, and you only want to live below your means, then there is no point in not playing the long-game. Buffet warned people about this very recently, and you will likely regret taking his advice. For if you don't, you are bound to be just another blade of grass in the pink fields, and soon after, the mower will cut you down.

Best advice? Especially if unlucky? You have a great approach. Be very not greedy when getting into trading anything. 3x on your money is AMAZING despite fuck ups.

I'll use my example:
I could be up $3-4k on stonks right now, but because of greed and not taking the profit that was in front of me:
Lost $1.5k on GME pump and dump
Lost $1k on CLF options that decayed fast
Lost even more on options.
Lost on a penny stock trying to get the last 20% before selling.
Jumped into ideas shilled here faster than ideas I researched and came up with myself.

Please, don't be me. I'm right more often than I'm wrong, but I'm so shit at execution, I'm still at home base with my starting capital.

Dev team has been fudding the ever-loving shit out of their own coin lately. Talking about intentionally devaluing HODLer coins n shiet. The tech is beautiful and game-changing but every time I listen to one of them talk or read any of their posts I get a sick feeling in my stomach. Their PR bitch makes my skin crawl too and goes out of her way to talk about her "struggle" every time she's put in front of a camera. I'm not dumping my bags any time soon, but let's just say I have ultra-sensitive alerts for GRT and their dev team on my phone.

"Never invest more than you're willing to lose" is just bankroll management translated to retards.
Say you can consistently find an edge in the market as follows(not actual numbers just example):
>60% of the time you make a profit
>30% of the time you lose money
>10% of the time you get wiped out

Do you want to be able to keep playing this edge for the next 40 years or do you want to eventually end up on the shit side of a trade and lose 15 years of progress?
