I convinced my dad to buy XRP back in 2017 & have felt terrible about it ever since. Today I finally managed to cash him out in profit!
Back when I first got into crypto in 2017 in my naivety I was convinced XRP was going to be the next bitcoin. I told my dad and a friend they had to invest and they both put in around $1000.
Their investments plummeted and for the last 3 years every time I have mentioned crypto my dad has given me grief over the money he had lost in XRP.
Today with the XRP pump I was finally able to recover both their investments with some profit … more profit in fact than they would of got from leaving it in the bank for those 3 years!
Both my dad and my friend are happy now and I hope I can use this experience to get them onside with bitcoin and ethereum in the future.
Edit – just to clarify when I say my dad had "given me grief", it was in a joking manner. We have a great relationship and he only put in what he could afford to lose.
