10. GMTA. I'd be very cautious with this stuff. Funny story though, someone offered on our house with...

...Bitcoins.

During the region-wide Thomas Fire in December, we were under mandatory evacuation at our new home in Ventura and our son and daughter had to evacuate from their respective homes in Santa Barbara. Our daughter took her kids way down the coast for better air, but our son and his wife moved their valuables to our still-empty old home with the for sale sign in front, and then themselves.

While our son was unloading his pickup, two men drove up, said they'd been burned out in Ventura, and offered to buy the house for Bitcoins. Son said no -- probably referred them to the Realtor.

When he told us about it, we laughed out loud -- because, Dutch Tulip Bulb Craze. But our son didn't laugh -- because, Cryptocurrency, It's the Coming Thing.
