With all due respect, that’s like saying I bought a made in China car which was junk, so never buy another car again.

If someone is going to invest in ANYTHING with no due diligence, well, the old adage applies.

I'm having a heck of a job making the connection between "General RVing Issues" and "don't buy cryptocurrency because you might get ripped off"...

Could someone please enlighten me...

Well the connection: YOu might get ripped off buying an RV especially if you use "Crypto Currency" and buy off the internet. WHy (Because fraud laws are darn hard to enforce when Crypto is used).

Some folks make a killing with Crypto. but I am very suspicious of what they are doing . LIke Ponzi. he made a killing till the government slapped him in their special hotel.. then .. Well..


Home is where I park it.

And how is that a surprise? It isn't limited to crypto currency. Many investment firms and individuals working for them have done exactly the same thing. Maybe put your money in your mattress where it will be safe?

Cryptocurrency isn't investing, it is speculating.

I think it would be fun to invest a small amount to play money, assuming of course you are not an individual who tends to get carried away, thought about it myself.
But lets be realistic how can this be in any way secure, there is nothing I know of in the world of computers that cannot be hacked by someone.
