As a reflection of his decades of experience as a retirement and financial planner, Robert M. Ryerson
has shared his expertise in personal finance and economic trends through his involvement with The Society of Financial Awareness. Robert M. Ryerson recently established a private consulting company to educate investors on cryptocurrencies
While cryptocurrencies are still viewed as high-risk investments, informed investors can make significant returns. Individuals interested in purchasing cryptocurrencies should do intensive research on the market as well as technical and security protocols for buying and storing their investment safely. This is especially important for investing in newer currencies.
Since much of the cryptocurrency market is unregulated, performing due diligence is key for avoiding scams. Once a promising opportunity has been identified, investors should only invest an amount that they can afford to lose. Cryptocurrency is not only highly volatile, but there are no financial protections for investors if their coins are stolen, lost, or mishandled by cryptocurrency storage companies.
