Bitcoin isn’t 100% safe. There are obviously risks associated with investing. With that being said, I’d recommend investing anyway. Now is actually a good time with the huge price drop from its huge jump to 40k. Also, you could try using what’s called a “faucet”. You won’t earn a lot from them but some high paying ones can get you started with a few bucks worth of Bitcoin for free.
I don’t know if I can post the site on here publicly but if you PM me I’ll send you a link to a site I cash out about 10$ in BTC every few days. If you don’t want to do that and just want to put in cash, I’d recommend linking a bank account a coinbase wallet and if you are good to buy directly in your state, you can buy within a few minutes with verification and a bank account. I live in NY, so I’m not legal to buy directly online, so that’s why I mainly use the faucet.
Long story short, I recommend btc to anyone looking for almost free money. If you have any questions or you want me to go farther in depth shoot me a message.
