Where to Invest?

Considering crypto a serious investment option is a very big risk. Invest in cryptocurrencies only if you are not afraid to lose the money invested.

As you can clearly see, crypto prices can go up and down very quickly.

Mutual funds are much better in terms of risk. Even the riskiest mutual funds are far less risky than crypto currencies.

Mutual Funds vs Crypto

If you want to take high risk, you should explore small-cap funds. They invest in smaller companies that show great potential for growth.
