If you want your friends to get into crypto without guilt, give them free crypto.
It feels like when you introduce your friends to a video game and you give them some decent gear.
One of my friends was curious about it, and he kept asking me for advice. I knew he didn't want to take large risks, but he wanted to invest his money into something that would grow large amounts.
I had him make a wallet and sent him some ETH from my profits because it was just a small amount of my holdings. Then he bought me a drink and he continued to do research.
Now that the big dip is happening, he's still asking me for advice, but he's not angry because it's not his money that's being affected. Now he sees that this kind of fluctuation is normal, so he has a better idea of getting into the game.
So far, he hasn't bought any more, but this would be a pretty good discount sale to go in on.
