    While a private form of fiat money, it is still fiat. And unless one truely understands it, it's like any tech "investment". You could think you have something when you don't, or eventually don't. Fiat relies on faith in the currency, and that is out of your control.

    You're basically trading in a currency. With the usual risks such as it being outlawed (almost a certainty if government fiat collapses)theft from places that "hold" your bitcoin for you(happened before), and the public deciding there are better options (precious metals, digital gold, hard assets, etc)

    Like virtually all tech "investments", the early adopters reap most of the rewards, and the suckers buy at the higher prices. Whether the high price is today's or ten times today's price is not known. The concern is that the eventual price when you need to sell them is 1/10th of today's.

    It's a punt.

    Circle makes the whole process pretty fast, but it's not anonymous. If your into the Research Chemical scene you can posses them legally but they are sold "not for human consumption" to protect the vendors in a legal sense

    let me tell you from personal experience, there is NOTHING legal about RC's most are illegal under federal "analogue laws", ie, if you have an unscheduled analogue of PCP you are gonna get charged for possession of PCP with intent. I had numerous packages and money seized, and the FBI investigate me (ive also been banned frmo using west. union/moneygram) due to buying drugs online, my suggestion is DONT

    I'm always taken aback with how hardcore SBP is. Meaning no disrespect sir, but it seems you manage to hold down job and family. True?
    I've dabbled in almost everything (and thankfully, all I really loved was pot). Have had friends go down hard on meth. So I've seen a fair amount, but dude, you are hardcore.

    theres a guy i know whos been using IV dope for 30+ yrs, he works on a road crew and has to shoot it up into his neck. recently his wife left him and their kids. he had no time off from work and had to detox working on a day road crew during a florida summer. i dont think it gets worse than that.

    what ive done is squander every gift ive been given, an incredible family, professional talent, intelligence and hard work, a good education, an obscene amount of money etc.. i pissed it all away and continue to , for no good reason that i can explain. if i had the balls to just end it at least the victims of my behavior (ie family,friends,employers,etc..) would be spared further pain. the only thing that i ever did right was somehow manage to not get caught, that is despite having a number of REALLY fucking close calls. it is nothing to admire or be proud of ppl who go to work every day ,take care of their family, dont piss away $ on drugs and alcohol
