Anyone on SLAENT mess around with cryptocurrenies?

I remember reading about bitcoin around 2012/13 when it was just taking off and got kind of interested in it but decided against it because the entire thing seemed shady untested. Price back then was around $100 and now its over $1000.

I recently found out about Ethereum which is another blockchain/cryptocurrency and the community around it seemed just as confident and enthusiastic as the bitcoin community in 2012. A little bit more research convinced me that it might be worth throwing a little bit of money into. Unfortunately I got in after the first big jump in price but if it follows the bitcoin trajectory I'll still make a decent sum.

The markets and communities are both irrational and crazy but its fun to try and make sense of it.
