Possibly nothing as far as future performance goes, but it tells me this - micro-size your bitcoin allocation.
Compared to my PP, I've got about 3% bitcoin. Enough for me right now ;)

Re: Getting Into Linux

How many forums users here are regular Linux users? Not on the desktop, but on the server, yes. My biggest gripe so far is the lack of a turnkey backup solution like Time Machine in MacOS. Also, there is no Microsoft Visual Studio Code, so I've elected to use Atom as my IDE. It's not as good, thoug...

Re: Bitcoin loses half of its value in two-day plunge

Fun times :)

My VP is about 4% of my PP, and 2% is in Bitcoin. I don't worry about it, really. It's just there in case Bitcoin turns out to be a huge winner in the future.

Re: [EU] Value of short-term bonds as "cash"

I've got a EU PP, and my cash is NOT in a money market fund. As long as my portfolio is small enough to keep it cash in regular savings accounts, I'll do so.

And because in AI there is a known fact that the party who is in front will stay in front (and increase the lead) the obvious pick would be $GOOG.
If you believe in AI, then what about Tesla?
