    Now that paypal has an option to buy cryptocurrency, I've been dumping my last few HP earnings into Ethereum. No regrets here! So far a great investment. Have done a lot of research on Ethereum and seems as although cryptocurrency in general is very volatile, Ethereum seems like a fairly safe investment. Anyone else doing this?

      Back when Bitcoins were $300 a Bitcoin I thought about buying three or four. Sigh.

      "Hindsight is 20/20."

      I suppose I still can invest in cryptocurrency now but I still am nervous about this even knowing what I know now.

      I might put in a few hundred dollars. Could always use my HubPages earnings as suggested.

      I have a Coinbase account setup and secured for when I want to.

    I have not, but thanks for the info, I didn't realize it was not an option. I really don't know much about cryptocurrency other than for the last several months I have been using the Brave browser, which pays me in their own form of crypto, just a little bit every month in shared ad revenue ($3 maybe). So far I have just been donating it (an option built into the browser) and that is as much as I know about crypto. Basically, I am slowly getting my feet wet. Maybe I'll work up the courage to create a wallet an try an HP crypto payout. Thanks for the info!

      Paypal now offers the option of 4 crypto currencies. The downside is that you can not access the "keys". They hold them. It's a great starting platform though until one can get like a coinbase account or something similar.

    Yes I have been purchasing bitcoin on PayPal with my last two monthly earnings from HubPages. I have been really impressed with the gains so far, and my best sources think Bitcoin will continue its upward march.

      Yes!! Although I'm not investing in bitcoin, Ethereum absolutely exploded today. Better than stocks, but very volatile. Look at what happened to xrp..yikes! Bitcoin and eth are pretty stable though and definitely on an up trend

      You can buy crypto from anywhere, it is designed to be a currency not limited by any institutions including countries. But some of the intermediaries that will make the purchase easier are limited by country because they are also operating as brokers or banks.
