A warning to new Reddit users and crypto investors getting involved in specific coin/ICO subreddits.

Some people find this hard to accept or outright deny it but unfortunately almost all the altcoin and ICO subreddits have fallen into a circle jerk of users only upvoting what they want to hear or what they already agree with.This not only promotes false hope and over the top expectations but also ensure that any serious negative news and possible flaws in a coin are downvoted out of sight, leading to an extremely skewed and biased outlook on that coin.I cannot stress this enough but DO NOT base your own investments entirely on what you see people posting in these sub-reddits. You are not seeing fair and balanced discussions and I would go as far as to say the majority of active users on these subreddits are playing with extremely small amounts of money expecting to make millions from a few hundred dollars.When researching coins and contemplating what to invest in look for the bad news, look for the flaws, try and find out if there are any serious issues that can make investing in that coin a bad idea. If you cannot find many and like the purpose and direction said coin is going in, then maybe it is time to look at investing.Don’t blindly follow idiots upvoting things that they are dreaming of just because they want it to happen. The circle jerk has destroyed many people’s hopes and dreams, don’t let it destroy yours.
