Whatever the question when it comes to Bitcoin, the answer is No.

Whatever the question, if you do not understand the financial instrument, avoid it.

That’s what the people used to say in 2010 and what happened afterwards ...

Options:
- it may go up, (likelihood 50%)
- it may go down, (likelihood 50%)
- it may remain the same; (likelihood 0%)

What was the question again?

When someone who self-identifies as 'mummy of 2' wants to know about Bitcoin, most likely is looking for trouble.

People also said that a few months ago when a lot of people bought BTC's to join the growth and "free" money that did come with it.

Just weeks later the conclusion was that a lot of people lost a lot of money.
