ok bro, I'm not sure we have the same definition of smart people if yours are people decided to buy a bunch of cryptocurrency and keep it all in a website built in php

one person I know, a physicist, said he lost 50 btc in the hack. in hindsight keeping the coins there was stupid but at the time it seemed safe

I go to physicists to learn about physics. I wouldn't ask them a question about finance.

I go to an economist, or maybe a trader, to learn about money and finances.
