Is it too late to be getting into crypto?

Honestly feels like most of the gains have already been had, everyone is talking about it... Even some older folks i know who don't know anything about the concept have bought in.

Am i wrong? Currently invested in xvg, xrp, lyc, bcc, eth, powr...Should i just dump it all our keep it?

Would love to hear from folks who've been in the game for some time.

Thanks!!

    No double down, time to go all in. Take cash out of your property too and put that in. Kids college fund? Why not put that in too and double your monies.

    In the US tax law changes mostly good for growth of the markets however wondering what the feeling is about treating crypto to crypto exchanges as the sale of securities with tax implications and how in the world they will track that?

    Coinbase / Gemini are opening up the investment max to 10M from 100k and being vetted by J.P. Morgan and others to handle institutional money. Goldman Sachs creating crypto trading desk. TD Ameritrade opening up more exposure for larger retail investors etc. all bullish to me for 2018.

    Coinbase adding additional new tokens in 2018 also bullish as it will create more press and awareness.

    I see the US increasing volume in 2018 however concerned that South Korea and other countries may clamp down with possible tax implications.

    I think at some point 90-95% of the alt coins are gonna crash pretty hard. A lot of mania and inflated valuations being dumped into companies without a working product etc.

    I have been asking colleagues, friends and family members in my social circles of about 1,000 people and about 1% seem to be involved so still has room to grow imo. Groups I see involved are developers, forward thinking investors, Silicon Valley, day traders, people that are part of illicit businesses, and some milenials. You should check with your social groups and get a feel.

    But consider that exchanges can’t keep up with the new signups currently and in bubbly frothy markets there is money to be made even if most of the companies evaporate at some point.

    Well, whoever is already investing in crypto will tell you it's still time to get in because that's how people earn money once they join a Ponzi scheme.

    You don’t invest in crypto. You gamble. When you realize that its no different than a casino, then you realize the answer to your question.

    I’m in more than I should be lol. If you need some philosophical support on going crypto read The Internet of Money off of Amazon. It’s a few years old so a lot of the statements are no longer valid, but I view the general trajectory of the adoption curve that the author outlines as credible.

      Coinbase is signing up users at a rate of 50k/day. You should look at daily transaction volumes that are funded by usd. It’s only increasing

      That's fair. And I do think there is a lot of fomo going on. But, you can't say there is no adoption. It's unclear to me how much of the Blind population actually appreciates the tech and the uses cases behind cryptocurrencies.

    No it’s not. Raiblocks (XRB) went up 10x in last two weeks for me. Now that doesn’t happen often, 0.5x gains are more likely. You just need to do your research in small cap altcoins.
