I know it’s tempting…

Especially now — as virtually every cryptocurrency is crashing and the relatively low prices are exceedingly attractive… but hear me out.

I’m not telling you not to trade.

On the contrary, I encourage you to! The volatility of cryptocurrencies is exactly what makes this such a profitable endeavor.
