Start an ICO. Offer trading advise, become an authority figure and drive your sheep where you desire. That's the direct way, which you could do with varying levels of illegality.

Right now I'm just trying to ride the pumps. Next few years are going to be crazy.

You make money on the subscriptions and money on the crytpo.

the stock market had an unprecedented bull run throughout the 20s, and since everything was just exploding day after day lots of individual investors borrowed heavily to buy on margin. When the market tanked so many people went to the bank to take out their money to cover the losses that the banks ran out of cash and that coupled with many having massive losses of their own in the market caused a number of banks to shut down. Anyone who had their money in those banks lost everything (although some were later able to get pennies on the dollar after a lengthy legal process). Today the FDIC exists to insure bank accounts in case something like that happens again.

As it became clear in late 1929-early 1930 that this was not going to turn around and people started being foreclosed upon suicides became quite common.

> 1920s before the great depression

Think of it on a much lager scale.

We are not talking just the United States, but the whole world.

United States can regulate crypto all they want. Hell, they can even ban it. Do you think people in Russia will actually care? What about the penguins in Antarctica? Let me tell you, the penguins will still be trading. Plus by banning crypto all together, they'll stifle innovation and I'm sure they're aware of that. It isn't in their best interest.

If people still think crypto isn't all that fancy, just think that early adopters of stocks during the 1920s that held throughout the 1900s had won big. $1k invested 70 years ago in Walgreen's cleared 2 mill in 2017.

70 years converted to crypto time is an easy 5 - 7 years.

The reason for the serge in not only Walgreen's stock, but other stocks as well is due to accessibility to normies. Everyone has some type of stock today. Whether that be 401k, IRA, or just plain old brokerage account. Investing in the stock market is all the craze today and once crypto is more adoptable to normies lifestyle, it will become the next big thing to invest in.

Plus with gen y getting into more political positions and powerful positions, you'll see a spark in cryptocurrency. Why? Gen y knows about it and a vast (23 - 42%) are involved in it and the rest have heard of it. Ffs it was in the Simpsons - 20th Century Fox. Once generation z starts going into adulthood, you'll see even more crypto currency awareness. Why? They're 3 years old and have an iPhone, I'm sure these motherfuckers know something already about BTC.

Give it time, but this shit is global and won't be disappearing for quite sometime.
