By GravMan | cryptocraic | 25 Jan 2023

I'm going to give you the top 10 reasons to consider investing in stocks instead of (or along side) investing in crypto. Give some #Narratives for your amusement. Please give me some more in the comments. Then I'll give you my #1 Bonus Reason to consider stocks and finally give you the opportunity to get a free stock here. And no, my number 1 Bonus Reason is not this guy! (Though it could be) 




Investing in stocks and investing in cryptocurrencies are both ways to potentially grow your money, but they have different characteristics and risks. Here are the top ten reasons why some investors may choose to invest in stocks instead of cryptocurrencies (followed by some #Narratives for your amusement). Also, check out this article on how to get some free stock to get your investing journey started.

  1. Regulation: Stocks are heavily regulated by government agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States, which can provide investors with a greater sense of security. Cryptocurrency markets, on the other hand, are largely unregulated. Why does this matter? #RegulationSucks! #AreYouSure? #FTX!!

  2. Stability: Stocks tend to be less volatile than cryptocurrencies, which can experience large price swings in short periods of time. #UpUpUp.... #AaaandItsGone 

  3. Diversification: Stocks can be a way to diversify your portfolio and spread risk across different companies and industries. #LetsPutAllMyEggsInOneBasket?

  4. Earnings and dividends: Many stocks pay dividends, which can provide a steady stream of income, and companies often release earnings reports, which can provide insight into the financial health of the company. Cryptocurrencies do not have a system to pay dividends or earning reports. #IsThatWeb2.0Defi?

  5. Liquidity: Stocks tend to be more liquid than cryptocurrencies, which can make it easier to buy and sell them (and drink!). #YaButHaveYouSeenPancakeswap?

  6. Long-term growth potential: Many stocks have a long history of growth and have the potential for future growth, as companies can continue to expand and increase revenue. #LongTermGrowth? #WhatAboutMoonShots?

  7. Professional management: Many publicly traded companies have professional management teams that make decisions on behalf of shareholders. In contrast, many cryptocurrencies are decentralized and do not have a central management team. #TrustTheSpottyTeenager.... 

  8. Investment options: Stocks can be bought and sold on a variety of platforms, including traditional stock exchanges and online brokerage firms. Cryptocurrencies are mainly traded on specialized platforms and exchanges. #IKnowWhatI'mDoing :-/

  9. Legal protection: In case of fraud or other illegal activities, stock investors have legal protection and recourse through securities laws and regulations. This is not the case with crypto investments, which operate in a largely unregulated environment. #YouWinSomeYouLoseSome #LetsTakeAllMyHardEarnedMoneyAndJustGiveItAwayBecauseEveryoneOnTelegramSaysItsAGreatIdea....

  10. Track record: Stocks have a long history of providing returns to investors and have been around for centuries, while cryptocurrencies are a relatively new and untested asset class. The track record of stocks shows a stable and consistent return over time. This can provide investors with a sense of security and confidence in their investments. #Boring!


Slow and Steady


Well, these are general reasons and every investor has different goals and preferences, so it's important to conduct thorough research, understand the risks and consider personal circumstances before making any investment decisions because this is not financial advice! 

# 1 Bonus Reason: This is so obvious its boring, but you should pay attention. Investing in stocks is what all the rich people do. They're rich. Maybe they know a thing or two about generating wealth and keeping it. If we want to be rich, maybe we should do what the rich people do.

I always say, if you want to be a champion, you need to do what champions do. Maybe that's not giving all your money to anonymous teenagers working from their basement and instead investing in legally incorporated companies, with real people, real financial accounts protected by real regulation with some real comeback if something goes wrong. #YaButAnonymousAreGoodRight?
