Looked into it on KUCOIN. Haven't pulled the trigger though. I'm building strongholds with ICX, OMG, EOS and Salt. :pint: :pint:

Yeah, only so much money to throw at tokens. I also don't want to spread myself too thin.

The fact it's only on ED and Kucoin is pretty amazing. Once it gets listed on any half-decent exchange I wonder how much it will blow up.

It double today, absolute madness, a POS stock in decline for years. Have to just ride the wave. Jumped in on Eidoo today as it seems promising and I am making $1k a share on ETH so why not gamble a bit more and see where the madness takes it.

Anyone else buying marijuana stocks? Recently bought a bunch of US companies, penny stocks and a Canadian company called Canopy Growth Corp. Canopy did great today.

That was my plan at first but unfortunately I bought mostly bitcoin (80% bitcoin 20% Eth) when I decided to get on board in December so It's such a small investment I'll probably just let it all ride. I made two bitcoin purchases around when it hit 12k and 17k so that's pretty much gained no value (actually down as I type this).

If bitcoin goes back over 18k I'll probably sell some of that off to but some other coins of binance.

You like Salt? I can't decide. Isn't ETHLend the same concept?

Brutal day today. drymounting Tron and Ripple are killing me. Tron's a hold, IMO, with the hopes that South Korea loosens its crypto restrictions. I'm not seeing it go back to $.30 again anytime soon, though.

My personal opinion is Salt has huge potential. The theory itself is great and they are already up and running as of last week.

ETHlend I believe you can only use alts to borrow ETH. SALT lets you use BTC or ETH as collateral for actual USD.

Also, they plan on eventually accepting alts, having CC's, Proof of Access benefits (holding SALT on their platform), etc. I think SALT has some of the best long-term potential of anything.

Not sure 100% on the defaulting. Valid question.... not sure they addressed everything yet but they do have it in place where you will need to buy more to make up the difference if it suddenly drops (what percent I don’t know yet) but if it increases you can pay off early with the increased money.
