Random stuff (and not too much of it)


Good time to buy, isn‘t it?

22 Jun 2021 1 minute read 0 comments minimalist

Just topped up ETH, XRP, ADA, DOT, SOL, UNI and DOGE. And a bit of ICP (which otherwise has been my worst investment so far). I hesitate to buy more coins/tokens right now (e.g. waiting for BTC to drop further). No one knows where is bottom. But how...

Crypto.com - read if your app lost all funds

28 May 2021 1 minute read 2 comments minimalist

Today the Crypto.com app lost all my assets, and the history of transactions was erased too. I then tried to upgrade the app to the latest version which did not resolve the issue. I contacted customer support via the chat but received no help. As it...

Holding Bitcoin?

13 May 2021 1 minute read 0 comments minimalist

I bought my Bitcoin on 9 Jan 2021. What a terrible timing, Bitcoin immediately fell by 25%, see below. Again, Bitcoin is massively down, by 20% over the last month. So I wonder: - Should I repeat by terrible timing, and sell it all, only to observe...

Internet Computer (ICP) going upwards

Guys, I think it is time to invest in this one. Since today you can buy via Coinbase Pro. For example, using BTC that you can transfer freely between Coinbase and Coinbase Pro. It started today around 0.011 BTC. It then crashed. I bought at 0.0055 BT...

Just sold all DASH - ESG concerns

3 May 2021 1 minute read 4 comments minimalist

Early April I bought Dash as I thought it was a pity that it had been removed from the Bitpanda Crypto Index 25 (which I own). Following the rise in value today, however, I decided to get rid of my holdings of Dash (which frankly were small anyway)....

Good time to swap Bitcoin for ETH?

29 Apr 2021 1 minute read 0 comments minimalist

Over the past month, the price of ETH sky-rocketed. In USD, but also in Bitcoin. This means you currently have to pay 67.96% more when buying ETH with BTC: This makes some who own Bitcoin wonder - should I convert to Ether? Owning Ether feels like...

Coinbase share for retirement

15 Apr 2021 1 minute read 0 comments minimalist

Today I bought COIN. At first, I placed a limit order at $350 ahead of the opening. However, rather fortunately, it failed to execute. I then manually bought at $325. I have no clue where the price will go short term. It may drop to $100 (about $20B...
