Crispy, think what you like, but I'm doing quite well with my crypto mining.
I'm currently in the process of setting up a beginners guide website for anyone interested.
It never ceases to amaze me that the biggest detractors of crypto mining tends to be people who don't crypto mine.

The barrier to entry is rather high with today's GPU prices, no? That's if you can even get your hands on one. Also, here in Norway we are seeing record breaking electricity prices (probably at least partially because of mining), I'm assuming that's the case over much of Europe.

I'm sure the technology (blockchain) has potential and is rather interesting, but the coins themselves are as far as I can tell at best speculative assets and at worst gambling instruments (or a ponzi scheme as the guy in the video claimed, probably being a bit hyperbolic).

Of course, mining is quite different than investing.
