Why does everyone preach DEI but fail to recognize that people also grow up in different backgrounds and socioeconomic classes? Increasing diversity in these elite firms also means that you will be at team dinners with people who didn’t grow up with well off parents and experiences living in the finer things in life or enjoying the same things outside of work - but not all teams are cognizant of that in their social conversations and can unintentionally make those ppl feel different. End rant.

Understandably, there is a bias towards BTC and ETH. While the alt coins are more risky (Link, Cardano, XLM, Matic, loop, etc.) their price is much more reasonable. That’s why I don’t understand why people say “I will only buy BTC and ETH”. That seems short sighted when you can put at least 10% in alt coins and hit it big if they take off. It doesn’t have to be a large allocation yet people are hesitant. This comes from a new crypto investor. Not financial advice.
