Investing seems impossible to understand in lay person terms. Crypto feels as the realm of acronyms and over-complicated buzzwords. Nonetheless we believe there are ways to break it all down to digestible pieces upon which anyone can feel they can make their own decisions. Two of your neighbors discuss the world of investing and crypto in a way you can understand and learn. Here we try to explain things in a simple way, rather than make ourselves sound like geniuses.
