That’s insane, right?

Speculating with cryptocurrency leads to such extreme fluctuations in price that it could be compared to a gambling in a casino.

Will this kind of growth happen in 2018? Probably not. It will probably never happen again. To be honest you never know… I’m not advising you to do so, but if you ever plan to invest in any CryptoCurrency you should always do your own research. No matter if it’s Verge, NEO or Ripple. There’s a lot of FUD going on and a lot of people are trying to manipulate the market because it’s more beneficial if the price goes down for them. That’s why the only thing I’m advising is to do your own research. The market is very fragile, so don’t invest more than you can afford to lose.
