Why do you need to learn how Ethereum works before investing?

Investing in any asset just because it’s price is rising is not a good reason to invest your money. You should understand the underlying technology that you’re investing in, and the use cases it enables. This way you’re betting on the underlying, tangible technology rather than just trying to game the market.
