Proclaims a banner ad atop my Yahoo e-mail page. Ugh.

I'm confident such an IRA would be "exciting" ... adventurous even.

Those emotions are just the opposite of what I look for in my Individual Retirement Account, that's all.

Toque.

I guess for the type of person who realizes that Bitcoin is a completely speculative gamble, but wants to diversify to remove the upside part?

Bitcoin could go either way. I see it as going to the bottom but the chance that it could skyrocket is high enough that I leave some money in it.

*shudders*

I just saw an ad for Yahoo! Finance - advertising it to be your source of "all things crypto" where you can "decrypt crypto".

I feel sorry for the countless people who are about to be scammed out of a lot of money for participating in something they don't understand.
