    I got a new scam email today, concerning paypal.
    I hope it is a scam, says I will see the charge on my credit card in a few days.
    Since I don't have paypal, this is probably just a phishing expedition?

        It’s important to note that the higher interest rates BlockFi offers on its accounts carry a special set of risks. Unlike traditional savings accounts, BlockFi’s are not FDIC-insured, which means they don’t carry the traditional $250,000 of protection per depositor. Even BlockFi’s disclaimer warns customers that their savings account “is not a risk-free product and loss of principal is possible.”

        I think its still really volatile. I bought some bitcoin through paypal as they now sell it. I only put $8 in which is $0.003 of a bit coin. Today it is worth $11. This is over a 3 week period.
        I only did such a small amount just to test the waters. Not really sure I want to dump a lot of real coin for a digital one.

          I still don't really understand the cryptocurrency world.
          I've been reading on this, and looking for a etf, or mutual fund with some crypto in it.

            They claim 20% of all bitcoin is 'lost'. That's approx. $140 billion at current value.
