Great article. I learned a lot.

Dumb question maybe, but a few months ago I bought about $600 worth of bit coin, eth, bitcoin cash, and lite coin via Pay Pal before I realized that you rent it instead of owning it. Would I be foolish to cash it all out and just buy actual bit coin and put it in my wallet instead? I'm all about HODL, but I'm pretty sure I'll be using regular old US dollars for awhile yet too. I appreciate any advice.
