    She won't sell, she says it will go back up......I hope it does for her sake.

    She bought in at a very good price. I just think the market will level off, it can't keep sustaining this upward climb.
    If you had it for Years, you should be sitting Pretty....

    Many many years ago i was told to buy it, and thought with what's going on with Anti-Smoking campaigns it would be a Bust.
    Again, Amazing how they kept on making money

    I had 3000 shares of PCLN in the 1990's at an average of just over a buck and sold it for a loss.
    After the reverse split I would have had 500 shares. now it is over $1000 a share

    Buy gold and silver stocks. If you want to play it more conservative, look at SIL, and GDX .
    When QE4 is announced many of the stocks in these ETFS will double and triple

    Someone would always tell me to buy gold back in 2006, I never listened when it came to buying gold or silver.....I believe gold was around $700 or something around there. I thought I missed the boat so decided not to buy any, as my cousin was buying all the gold he could get his hands on.

    Needless to say, it sky rocketed to around $1,850 around 2011/2012 (if my memory serves), but he never sold it, he still has all the gold he bought & he's still way up in what he's bought it at.

    I told him to get out when it fell to $1,700......if you can triple your money, no reason to stay in, get out, just my opinion tho.

    I'm still waiting for gold to fall under $1,000, but I don't know if I will ever see it fall under that number.

    otcmkts: Vygvf.

    Voyager Digital (OTCQB:VYGVF) is a smaller cap that gives investors exposure to the Bitcoin and crypto trading trend at a reasonable valuation. The company offers zero commissions and more coins than its competitors, including the rumored $100 billion market cap Coinbase that's going public soon, Kraken and Gemini. The stock is listed on the OTC market, which is higher risk than the Nasdaq as these stocks tend to be thinly traded.

    Voyager is a zero-commission competitor to Robinhood, and due to many PR mishaps, has opened a door for Voyager to become a replacement for customers who seek fewer politics around their crypto trading app.

    Voyager also comes with the added benefit of offering 9% interest on stable coins as the company is a consortium for stable coins, including USD Coin (USDC) and Tether's USDT, which have surpassed $7 billion in circulation. As such, it provides exposure to decentralized coins like Bitcoin and stable coins based on the fiat system.

    Although I'm personally in favor of decentralized crypto and not stable coins, big tech and the Fed are likely to put immense pressure on adopting stable coins. Voyager allows investors exposure to both at a market cap of $2.18 billion, at time of writing. You can read my Facebook Libra article here where I'm especially against this company entering the stable coin market.

    Below we explain what makes Voyager a compelling investment, including what it does, how it makes money, valuation, catalysts, management, and potential risks.

    Voyager: Zero Commissions, More Coins
    As longtime crypto investors, we know all too well the issues around Coinbase and the other sites. The primary issue is the commissions that Coinbase charges, which are exorbitant, to say the least. To make a $5,000 trade on Coinbase, you will be charged about $80 in commissions. This isn't competitive in an environment where stocks are traded at $0.

    Voyager does not charge commissions on crypto trades and offers 9% interest on stable coins. One thing to note is that Voyager does not offer insurance like Gemini, and that our fund does not hold large amounts of crypto on trading platforms. Instead, we store crypto in cold storage wallets and use trading platforms for trading only. We discuss how Voyager makes money below, the differences in crypto platforms and how investors typically store their crypto below.

    The fallout with Robinhood over GameStop has created an influx of customers for Voyager. Total revenue growth between December and February was over 1000% from $1.7 million to $20 million in monthly revenue.

    Please note, my readers often ask me about the volatility of crypto and my answer to this is that crypto promises to be some of my most volatile investments. Stocks and crypto prices can drop 60% or more - and this has happened since my official coverage on bitcoin when it was priced at $12,000 and saw $4,000 before finding a base. You can read my past coverage here on Bitcoin in the summer of 2019.

    Financial Overview
    Voyager is on a growth streak fueled by a rise in brand awareness. The company solves one of the more significant pain points for crypto investors, which is commissions. To illustrate, a $5,000 crypto trade on Coinbase can cost as much as $80 with commissions ranging from 1.5% to 4%. This simply isn't competitive enough for Coinbase to retain customers, who like myself, were first attracted to the platform when there were fewer options many years ago.

    Best advice I can give the OP is to search out that willie guy who posts incoherent rants on here about how smart he is all the time. PM him and give him a detailed request for information. Take his response analyze it thoroughly and do the exact opposite. This is a risk free strategy and will serve you well in both the short and long term

    Happy investing sir!

    The Oakland A’s is the first baseball team to have sold a luxury box for bitcoin.
    A’s President Dave Kaval tweeted Wednesday that crypto broker Voyager Digital had become the first buyer of a full-season suite at the Oakland Coliseum.
    The team announced March 14 it was selling private suites for the full 2021 season for either $64,800 or 1 BTC.
    The bitcoin paid by Voyager Digital was worth about $59,240 at the time of Kaval’s tweet.
    However, one must wonder what the firm’s cost basis was for the transacted bitcoin. Voyager Digital’s Stephen Ehrlich started as CEO in January 2018, when bitcoin was trading around $12,000.
    Kaval told Bloomberg on March 26 the A’s would hodl any bitcoin received from such sales and not convert it into fiat.
    “The price of a season suite may fluctuate depending on when it’s purchased, which adds to the excitement,” Kaval said when the scheme was announced.
    The A’s start the 2021 baseball season tonight in a home game against the Houston Astros.
