Good post! You're a great poster on this forum. Whatever you're doing, keep doing it.  It's also good to see someone older into crypto - I would class you as abnormal there (a compliment!).  Even at my age (47), I'm not seeing that many people into crypto. That's a good sign...think about a whole new generation who are far more crypto-focused than gold or stocks.   Crypto is THE nascent asset class.  Indeed, drop gold (I own gold by the way, but yes....drop gold). 

Im 47 also and hoping this will help me retire at 52 😊..i try not to think what i would have done with my money if i was in my 20's or 30's 😄

If XRP does hit $589 like many of you guys believe.......... The entire holdings of XRP forum members here will have enough money to manipulate the entire world economy.........

So it’s time to wake up from the wet dreams and  let’s us focus on XRP hitting $0.50 for the time been please........

Instead of relying on a speculative coin to make you wealthy, while you wait you should be developing skills to acquire more wrath. Invest in yourself, the market, other coin, etc. 

Why all this focus on money and skills, sir. Life is all about love. No money and no skills can get you love. 

'If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.'

I’m another in the older age bracket.  55 for me. I look at it as 10 years is a good time frame for hodling and hopefully cashing in a bit along the way until retirement.  Patience is an easier virtue for me these days.  I don’t know how i’d go if this opportunity came along when I was 25. Sell it all for a big weekend with the lads I should think.

If you are 25 - put aside 20k XRP and that is your pension settled.  My guess is that by the time you are 40 you will have enough to retire.

After that if have more to invest, invest to spend in the medium term

Being rich does not bring happiness, but having money to do creative socially useful things brings great happiness and self esteem.

i'm 25 and my goal is to get 15k XRP before 2021 , hoping the price won't go too high before .

I'm hoping things will work right and that at 30-32 yo I could maybe buy an apartment , I'd need XRP price to get to at least 20$.

This is great advice. BUT, most will not use it and prefer to start useless questions threads of "when" and some even attempt to answer it.  The answer to each question of "when...." is "WE DONT KNOW!"

People your age make $10K a month doing youtube video helping others, you choose to sit and "hope" that it will go from 30 cents to $20.  Now I feel ZERO guilt with the way I trade now against the other side.  When I was your age I hustled like a MF to start a business. What an entitled generation of millennials.

If you keep plugging the way you're doing at 25, you will succeed beyond your wildest dreams.

Just do what you're already doing, and do a little more when you start to be a little better off. Most people your age fail for the wrong reasons.....frustration and impatience are easy to give in to. People spend their nest egg on something they DON'T need. Car, trip to Timbuktu, etc. Or other pitfalls. Divorce and substance addiction run high among even the smartest people. Learn to meditate. Do Yoga.

Baka, I want to write a book about investing that says some things I've never read in any book. One principle that I have discovered, that I never read in any of the dozens of money books I ever looked at.....is a very simple principle that I think is very important.

"People who invest in something (almost anything) tend to do much better financially in life than people who don't."

Most people wait...for the good job that flows the extra money....for the company that will fund the 401K...for just the right opportunity.....and as they go through life doing nothing to prepare for their old age.....and depending on the kindness of strangers, more or less......they develop a long string of excuses about why other people are rich and they are still poor. 

Most of them become socialists these days, and die broke. (That's meant to be a joke, except it's true. LOL.)

And don't worry so much about missing out on LTC or anything else. Even at my age and with my slightly higher budget, I still feel the same way you do....... like I see opportunities I could take advantage of if I just had a LITTLE more money to invest. But you can't buy 'em all.

We do have to save a little for dinner and practical things. There is a balance.

This is my goal all be it I’m a couple of years older.

Hopefully I can retire in 15 years. If I can make 4K a month il retire as soon as that comes up, not overly a greedy person I don’t need 10k+ a month.

Good luck to us all holding.

people my age make 10k$ a month ? lol. 0.001% make money with youtube videos that's right.

people my age don't have a penni because they spent all their income in alcohol and going out , that's the truth.

I hear that everyday , "when I was your age I was doing this ,that , when I was your age I could do this like you but now I'm old .. "

the thing is idgaf

When I was his age I was back in school after a drop-out stint that lasted a couple of years. I made a union wage, which at that time was a whopping $7 an hour, lol. I had to consider whether to leave the relative security of a retirement plan  from a big corporation and good medical bennies....I thank my lucky stars that working with molten metal in a foundry that was well over 100 degrees F did not become my life's work.

I make more money in a year than my father made in 20 years doing what I might have done. It's funny how things work out.

While I worship entrepreneurship just like you do, and hustle, and hard work...the truth is that those who do invest in XRP at 25 are  liable to do just fine, maybe without working quite as hard as you did, or I did. I went to school until I was over 32 (and already had my first two kids) and then I bootstrapped my way to a decent level starting with absolutely nothing. I even had a 20K student loan which seemed huge at the time. And I'm proud of what I did.

But on investing to earn passive income, I started pretty late. By starting  early, these young guys are going to do better than I did.....IF...and only if, they can set these excellent goals I hear them making and stick to them. That's the hard part.
