Getting a brand new MacBook, and want to secure it for managing crypto wallet contents and transacting on exchanges/sending and receiving crypto. Any tips on how to most securely setup the laptop from the ground up (I.e. before even connecting to WiFi) to ensure security and anonymity from both a system and connectivity perspective, and to take over crypto dealings managed on currently (not as carefully) used machine with paper wallets? Detailed guides are also appreciated!

Thanks A1... already have an unboxed ledger nano as well, but looking more from the perspective of securing the machine itself and chain of transactions that will move my crypto from the current wallet locations into the ledger via the new MacBook in case my current wallets have been made vulnerable to attack in some way. I’m thinking a good pre-emotive step would be to ensure that the MacBook is as secure as possible. Taking paranoia to a whole new level, I know ;)

If a company I interviewed with on Wed told me they’d be in touch on Friday and I haven’t heard back yet should I reach out? The Wed interview was the final round so I should either get an offer today or get rejected. It’s still not end of day yet but I feel if they were interested I’d get a call or email already.

Ladies I need your insight there is this the guy that has liked me for a few years but I'm not attracted to him. I have never kissed him or anything. He always talks about how he can do everything financially for me, yet I still find it hard to be attracted to him. He wants a serious relationship with me and to take care of me. How do you know when or if you should settle? I don't really like the single life. Have any of you ever settled? Can I magically become attracted to him?

Since there’s no wash sale rule on crypto, anyone selling and buying immediately to capture losses? I have some old crypto (2013) and some new (DCA 2017-2021). I haven’t really tried doing this but interested if others have. Doesn’t feel worth the fees, but for my old coins feel like it would step up the basis without any major tax consequence.

Hello all
A beginner to the crypto world
I am currently analysing coinmarketcap these days
A lot of highest gainers, or at least the recently added coins, are not even available on any major exchanges here (coinbase, binance etc)
So, how do you buy those or trade them with your BTC or ETH ones?
I tried apps like sushiswap and pancakeswap but even they don't have much.
All help is appreciated
Really need this answer
