As was the pattern during the actual gold rush of the 1800s, while some people took the risk and spent their time looking for gold, other folks watched on non-judgmentally and lucratively supplied the "picks and shovels" that enabled the fever-pitched masses to take a shot at "striking it big."

Bitcoin, Ethereum Lead the Way as Cryptocurrencies Retreat into the Red      Cryptocurrency traders woke up to a sea of red this morning , as 92 of the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap experienced a marked price decline.
