If I'm going to answer specifically for my current financial situation I would probably either:

  • Invest it in myself and my ideas. I have a few things I'd like to build, and having money to accelerate that process would be useful. $100k is a huge personal runway that could give me a lot of time to work on projects without financial pressure.
  • Take a risky bet and put it all into crypto or a couple of stocks. I'm not sure exactly what, but probably diversifying a bit into a mix of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, and a couple other tokens seems reasonable right now. Although given the current hype cycle we're in, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a big correction soon. On the stocks side...who knows! I think Cloudflare is going to eat the world, so I'd probably start there and look at similar "building the foundation of the internet"-type companies.

I realize that neither of these things are all that sensible, and conflict with things I've written in the past about investing, but hey: we're assuming that $100k just showed up on my doorstep, so why not have fun?

This is also not investment advice! Purely hypothetical ๐Ÿ˜Š
