i tried to implement a 'pay it forward' scheme in 2019 and some of 2020.

wherein i let peers in my field live at my place for free, with the sentiment
that they will find their own place to live (and thereby diversifying my options for living space)

but it just turns into peer-filtration of good ones and worthless ones.

most of the people that took my offer, stayed for about two or three months
and got into their own place. and were able to comfortably find and shop
for the places they wanted, instead of being hassled by other timetables.

i really thought i had something going, philosophically speaking.

if one had enough friends through their life, propagating the forward-paying scheme

some generation at some point could live to grow as an individual

and less so worry about slaving away for some woke company that wants them dead

the problem, like most things, arises when you get one deadbeat out of 10 goodies

it inspires you to burn nearly everything to the ground.

the kind of deadbeat that you have to get 'trespassing' violations against.

i digress.

Risk v reward. There are some 10 thousand different cryptocurrencies to choose from. Some of them are viable, many of them are scams or joke/social/meme coins.

What you say about low cap coins is true but good luck differentiating between them for viability.

That said, factor in the psychology of stupid people that follow the herd and you can make some good money on the side from shit coins if you can sniff out the momentum before it arises. Again, good luck picking out from the several thousands.

You can do both. I swing trades alts and then when I take profit I buy BTC or rinse and repeat.

It's really sad that with the American Dream dying due to currency debasement Bitcoin has replaced it.

What are your skills?

Are you able to build?

Are you a creative, artistic, type of person?

I go to knife shows and see some of the most beautiful pieces of, what I consider, art made from metal and pieces of wood. (Not telling you to make knives, just an example.)

Do something that you enjoy and utilizes the skills you have or can attain.

You shouldn't go full business at the start. Ease into it, many big businesses started small.

I never understand the appeal of day trading stocks. Like 95% of day traders lose money lol most of the rest just have confirmation bias because they were lucky, and 0.000001% actually know what they are doing.

It is very hit and miss. Once you understand the psychology then you fall into less traps than the average person. That said, the rules change all the time so any plan or pattern you can sniff out will work until it doesn't.

That said, it is always gratifying to put some money into something and take it at when it rises 20 percent, while it does not sound significant, 20% of 5 or 6 figures can mean something. At the same time, a poor choice leads your money to getting tied up, forcing you to leave it there and hope for the best or pull out at a loss to deal with other matters.

Imagine if everyone has the same idea, then nobody was (physically) building the community. Is this the way?
