    Well, it depends on the intent of the “investor”. Just because “investment” money came from a CC doesnt mean it is debt.

    Does transfering money from a credit card into a crypto exchange offer any extra identity protection vs transfering money in from a linked bank account?

    In the real estate boom that came crashing down in 2007, people were getting second mortgages on their homes to speculate on vacant Florida lots.
