DOGE co-creator Billy Markus dished out advice to cryptocurrency investors on Tuesday and pointed out the pointlessness of arguments on future prices.
if you believe it’ll go up just hold— Shibetoshi Nakamoto (@BillyM2k) July 21, 2021
if you don’t then sell
if you find the need to argue about potential future prices because your beliefs and ego are so frail that the idea of uncertainty is too hard for you to handle, don’t speculate on crypto and erase your Twitter thanks
In a separate tweet on Tuesday, Markus noted the appreciation of certain stocks and cryptocurrencies over the last five years. He made his point using the example of a $1,000 hypothetical investment made half a decade earlier.
