Thanks for the interest, friend. I spent almost $300, not really so much as to put my family at risk if I failed. You're right about holding the alt coins though, I'm optimistic and somewhat confident that if I wait long enough, they'll go up in value. At least I hope they will.
I tried to pick coins that seemed to have a lot of good features or hype going for them like EAC, MAX, DEV, & MEOW but who knows what coins are going to stick around or appreciate at this point. There are so many to choose from and so much FUD, it's hard to tell which are the best ones to put a few bucks into
No worries though mate, if they go back up or if I could get my money back without a major loss, I'll sell them for sure. At the end of the day, when I think about it, I knew they were high risk to invest in, and this is very new tech. With greater adoption by Joe Six-Pack, cryptos have so much potential to do a lot of great things. Hopefully when more regular folk buy into cryptos, prices will have stabilized more & huge failures like mtgox won't happen at all. That's is when I believe it's going to be truly awesome, wider adoption and use, that is. Oh, how I wish I had heard of bitcoin much sooner, I would of put money in it for sure in the early days of it, had I only known of it. NO BALLS, No GLORY though, right?
