Androb, example: Buying J&J or Phizer is not gambling, that investing. At the end of the day, there are underlying products, time in existence etc. Over the long term that will make you money.
Speculating in crypto is gambling, there is nothing more to it. Every crypto fairy is going to lose their panties with this statement, but there is nothing underlying, except the speculation that somebody is going to buy it from you at a higher price.
Artificial scarcity vs actual product. A share in an actual thing is always the better purchase.
Of course that does not stop us from gambling on crypto, I do, but it’s quick in and out.
