If you are talking about cryptocurrency, there are more people who lost money than who gained money from it. It's just that the people who gained are the loud ones you see online.

You haven't lost anything by not participating. I think there is more value in building up your wealth steadily and safely over the years.
One of my friends back in 2009-2010 or so was a really early adopter of bitcoin, with the approach of mine, hoard, see what has happened after a decade. Dunno what happened because we lost touch but if he did what he said he'd be sitting on stupid amounts of money. Hundreds of millions of USD in btc type shit. He was working for a university doing IT and was mining on a lot of computers in the labs. He is now a recluse on social media but the images he's tagged in he's always travelling, staying in incredible places and is very well dressed.

Another friend purchased a house mostly with bitcoin.

I probably should have listened to them too...
