Who knew there was over 10 different ways to invest in Bitcoin?


You can buy it, mine it yourself, dollar cost average it, wrap it in a publicly traded stock, mine it passively with the help of others, invest in a Bitcoin fund, etc.


This MIG meeting will be focused on discussing and learning about the Different Ways to Invest in Bitcoin.


This MIG meeting will not be focused on learning "why" to invest in Bitcoin, but will be more focused on "how".


This MIG meeting will assume you already want to own Bitcoin.



Some of the Different Ways to Invest in Bitcoin that we will discuss:

  • Chunky

  • Buy Bitcoin in chunks at whatever time.

  • Attempt to “time the market” with Bitcoin buys when you feel the price is low.
