How it’s Risky for Telcoin?

  • It investing in any cryptocurrency is essentially gambling, and there are no guarantees that we see what we pay in to go up in value.
  • Also, it’s a speculative investment with limited track records and no underlying value.
  • And there is also no guarantee that we can convert crypto assets back into cash. It depends on the demand and supply in the existing market.
  • Also plus, investing in newer cryptocurrencies rather than Bitcoin, for example, is even riskier and makes you more open to scams.
  • And “the price swings can expect the wild, and there’s the legitimate risk that investors can get burned.”
