    I've got $1000 in bitcoin. What is the best way to invest it?

    I've got some also in LINDA and ETN but have lost 90% of my gamble-investment. I'd like to do something useful with my remaining 1K and buy things with it if possible.

    Are there gift cards I can buy with Bitcoin? For Amazon, etc? Or is there someone I can give it to to invest?

    You could either keep it and hope the Cryptocurrency markets go back up (a lot of holders are holding and waiting) or exchange it to GBP and withdraw it using an exchange such as Coinbase.

    I'd be wary of anyone that says they can take it and invest it. There is nothing to really invest it in, except the two options above, and I doubt you'd ever see it again if you transfer it to someone to do this.
