How Does One Obtain or Trade Cryptocurrency?


After having series of lectures today, I was on my way back to the house, and while I was waiting for a taxi to take  me home. I saw one of my friend who is a very good cryptocurrency trader and we got talking about the cryptocurrency market and how some coins have done so well in the past months.

Beside us were two girls having their own conversation, it happened that my friend knows one of the girls, so we had to say hi to them as we were about to part ways.

We all exchanged pleasantries, and one of the girl said she overheard us talking about  all these online nonsense, that we should stop wasting our time.

I had to laugh out loud; It was obvious she spoke out of ignorance, and for that fact, she needed to be schooled which we took upon ourselves.

After what seems like 10 minutes, we left them happy and fulfilled.
