Nice video!
But at many times, subjective opinions are stated as implied facts.
Because this kind of video is aimed at all types of audience, that has its dangers.
And not enough has been said about the disadvantage of cryptocurrency. Sounded almost like an advertising pamphlet for the technology!

what is crypto arbitrage?

Jeremiah Alfonso says:

I actually started investing in bitcoin before lockdown now I make profits more than I expected

Mack Harris says:

I think the pandemic has taught people the importance of multiple streams of income unfortunately having a job doesn't mean security.

Lilly Shah says:

Does this mean that the value of a cryptocurrency can change at any time? That would mean that you could have gotten it at high cost but it's value can fall at any time? Then what's the use of having it? Does this mean this is just like investing in shares?
