Stocks & cryptos? 🤔 For finance dingdongs like me?? 🤯 They're more accessible than you think!🎯
Hi! I'm Lizzie🦎 My 2020 New Years Resolution was to learn what stocks were and how to get in on that action. I dove headfirst into investing any money I could afford to squirrel away🐿🌰...which wasn't a lot. "HOW DO YOU DO STOCKS?" I literally googled that sentence. Because I didn't know enough about the stock market or cryptocurrencies to ask a more educated question than that. And I didnt have a clue where to start, or what options were out there for people like me who wanted to start investing but only had comically small amounts of money to do it with. I especially didn't know what features to look for in an investment app...so...I downloaded them alll! And there are a lot of them. Once I got going, even though my stakes were very low, it became something I would check regularly & learn more about. Honestly, I had no idea it could be FUN 🤯 Or that there would be so many promos & bonuses. I'm not going to claim I got rich from this learning experience (😂 anyone who tells you to *expect* a huge return on investment is trying to sell you something), but some of these apps have generous enough bonuses that I didnt need to deposit any of my own money in order to start using them.
Coinbase makes it so easy for anyone to use Bitcoin (& loads of other cryptocurrencies!) No tech savvy required, the app simplifies everything so don't need to know how any of it works. Buy it, sell it, send it, exchange it...or receive it from others! 🤳
Robinhood was my intro to all of this. I didn't even realize they had competitors for a while! It's super simple to start using Robinhood. And I've literally never made a single deposit, because you don't need to make a deposit in order to get your free stock! I got super lucky and received one of the really good stocks for signing up and just used that money to invest with. Robinhood is all around easy to use, doesn't crash, and doesn't make anything too complicated. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to "try before they buy"!

Celsius Network is a cryptocurrency lending and custodial platform working to bring back the interest rates and financial opportunities that were available to previous generations. You deposit your crypto, they use it as liquidity for lending (similar to depositing in a bank account). The difference is that you will receive significant interest on your deposit (rates vary over time and between cryptocurrencies, typically between 5% and 17% APY). Interest is paid out every Monday and you can withdraw your funds at any time. You decide whether you want to be paid in the same denomination as your deposit, or in Celsius' utility token, CEL. If you choose to receive in CEL, you will get more. If a significant portion of your total assets in the app is in CEL, you will receive a higher interest and better rates on loans.

Dough is really cool. From reading about the company, it was founded by fintech nerds of color who wanted investing to be accessible to populations it never was before. The app feels a lot more personal than some of its competitors. They have a hilarious weekly podcast and the whole vibe of the app is "we're having fun here!". I don't know enough about investing yet to have an opinion on the more advanced stuff, but it's really easy to buy and sell stocks.
