A few have asked me how long I have been trading 225 days on $BTCM and <56 days on anything else. I started in late 2019 with $BTC with $SQ 's #CashApp by putting $100 in.. for the 1st part my $100 was RED.. as low as $40-50 at one point & then a Tweet about BTC ...BOOM it started to skyrocket. At mid $50k'ish my out-of-pocket was $577(w/mini add-in's & the Boosts of Free BTC).. so I cashed out $600 to where all that I had in was free money earned from that $577.. I jumped a little too soon at around $62k I sold all, the majority of it I put into Public Portfolio ($900-$1,100 profit) when it went lower again I put $100 back and added a little more when it dipped again.. I hold $339.40 as of today. I remember at the start of BTC hearing of it and even seeing it on websites for pennies, but I didn't understand it so I ignored it.. 😭 this is why I have $5-10 in each Public Crypto for the most part some I think I got out of. Why did I start in 2019? In April-#July 2019 I was in NOLA, my former sibling was working for a company in Harahan, LA that manufactured and hand-built shelving units for BTC mining cpu systems. She would talk about overseas people coming in to see their units to purchase them; at that time 1 BTC was worth about $14k, kicking myself when I got home in July 2019 I had to see one of Doctor's who had a CashApp option to pay my fee so I downloaded it and seen the Stock/Bitcoin option. When I left her employer was in talks to relocate to Texas and to build their own landing strip to transfer their employees back n forth to LA from TX because of Electricity problems.. not sure whatever happened to that job or company or if they went thru with it, she wasn't with them by 2020 . This is some screenshots of how BTC has moved since 2013.. just in case after I post the numbers are blurry I will add the text underneath.. it kind of shows one how long they may have to wait to see their investments move enough to enjoy it lol Crypto is very volatile though you have to be on it 24 7 it seems to get the most out of it and I am not that right now. All others are new to me as of Public starting which is when I tested more and still am there... most have been in the red except Poly one. But I have never seen more of a push for anything as I have for $SHIB so I believe in it and others adding it as a form of payment doesn't hurt. #holdurshib #growth #possibilities #longterm #buythedip

U.S. Treasuries (“T-Bill“) investing services on the Public Platform are offered by Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information. When you enable T-Bill investing on the Public platform, you open a separate brokerage account with JSI (the “Treasury Account“).

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.
