Buying monetized channel vs. starting from no subs? (also, growing channel niche by reposting popular content?)

Hey, I want to start a legit youtube where I make original content, but I really hate to start from nothing cuz I know there's rare chances of getting noticed, and if a video does blow up I wouldn't even be able to monetize it.

So instead of starting youtube and putting effort into videos that arn't even monetized, I was thinking of buying a channel that's already monetized and then starting... Is there any downside to this?

My other option was, starting new, and reposting short clips / compilations of the niche I'm in, and advertising it in the niche spaces, then when I gather enough followers (1k to 3k or so ) I'll delete all the videos, rename the channel, and start posting my original content. (any downside to this with youtube algorithm or whatever? Most I know of is some users may notice I was the guy reposting others content before...)

Boost your own account and then monetize it. Then you can uploading regular videos until you reach 4K watch hours yourself to delete the boosted video.

there is no point of deleting the videos you made before if they are in the same niche. You gonna lost trafic and also send bad signals to youtube.

Buy a monetised channel if you can find one in your niche. Note this channels won't make you any good money until you start posting and making a lot of videos because most of them are worked up using panels.

Better to start channel from zero, you will learn a lot of new things on the way.

If you have the funds, you can buy monetized channel. Once some subscribers and watchtime is there, work becomes easier.
Only thing I'm worried about buying a channel is, what if they sent botted traffic from alot of 3rd rate countries, causing youtube to flag account as suspicious or something.
I'm not sure how youtube algorithm works, but I'm worried about them "noticing" botted / micro workers / other things. and flagging or shadowbanning or just confusing it's alogrithm because so many accounts subscribe and never come back or view videos, so youtube decides the account is "bad"... I really don't know lol
