Hard Fork when the circumstances are right.ell. Well, well, well. It is great to kick this off. If you’ve found your way here you know it, you recognize it, and you might just love it. HardForking.com. Yes yes, if 50 Shades of Grey taught us anything about our world and the interesting social life your HR manager must have, it is that everybody is open to a
We’ll be discussing that more in time ahead, but lest we kick off too deep into this crypto kink-fest we must begin in the first with a word about getting membership into this wild world of cryptos. Cryptos, more commonly called cryptocurrency. The thing you can buy and sell digitally, that is really nifty, of great value today – and of absolutely no relation to Fritos, Lays, or any other forgettable packet of chips in Aisle 6 of your local grocery store.
Let me tell you I got into cryptos in an odd way. I was not hanging about when Satoshi was just kicking off this fun in 2009. Oh no, no I came later to the party. But that’s OK, who in hell wants to rock up right on the dot when a party starts anyway? Designated drivers, that’s who! And nobody wants to hear anything from them until it’s time for the party to end. Then at that point suddenly your new best mate Mr. DD is like a boat on a desert island. Get. Me. Home. Now. DD!!
So, there I was a little late to the party but man oh man I’ve made a fashionable entry, if I do indeed say so myself. Having traded shares for a time I kissed goodbye that old scene and came on over to start Bitcoins and cryptos.
Was this a change? Sure. Did some of my friends wonder what they hell I’m doing? Yes indeed. Did they ultimately get annoyed I kept asking myself questions in their presence? You betcha!
But now they are all about cryptos.
It’s a bit nifty to think about it in the big picture all up. Here we are just a bunch of guys and girls from Sydney, Australia Friends from our uni days, now into our late 20’s and early 30’s, and otherwise happy with a bit of cash to spare. Finance and investing was going well but also became a bit too regular.
Nobody suggests good investment should high stakes ‘cash all my chips in’ Vegas-style bets. But driving on over to work every day in my hometown, you see the Sydney Opera House. You drive over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and you see statues and tributes about town to those people who had the ambition and idea to build something great, like the House and the Bridge.
Old shares were just not getting it done for me like that anymore. I needed to connect with something fresh, and something exciting once again. It also needed to be legal. Narcos is a great show but that sort’ve work is best kept in my Netflix que, and out of my weekly schedule.
Life cannot just be about doing the same thing over and over guys. Finish work Fridays, hit the wine bar Saturday, and before long you the grey hair comes in and you’ve not happy memories, but a ton of regrets. Also the sneaking suspicion your life began this downturn when you started up with the wine bars. Seriously, who in the f**k spends their Saturday nights in such a place?
That’s why I decided to bugger off from the same old boring traders in the world of shares. 1% growth here, 1% growth there, and on and on and on. I used to be really passionate about investing, reading daily about the markets. But in the 2 years the only % growth of note was my increase in the purchase of iTunes and old Atari games off ebay.
Far be it from me to suggest the war against Space Invaders is ever over – but I’d left that in the past, and hung up my joystick. Only the boredom of traditional shares made me return to the 8-bit conflict. That’s why I am chuffed to have finally found something interesting once more with cryptos.
Crypto is Cool
They’ll be more to say on cryptos in time ahead. Frankly this post is just the start of my writing.
It’s all about putting together your thoughts and ideas in a way that makes sense, but also in a way that fairly conveys your excitement about something. No, cryptos trading has not helped me lose 60 pounds in 30 days, it has not landed me a date with a supermodel, or gotten me onto the speed dial of reality TV stars – AND THANK THE LIVING LORD FOR THAT! I SWEAR I WOULD TRADE ALL MY BITCOINS AWAY IF I GET CALLED JUST ONCE BY KIM KARDASHIAN!
….pardon me. I dislike that family as much as I adore my cryptos. Lest his be a Kardashian-conclusion instead the core takeaway must be this: cryptos has made things exciting for me once again, in investing, in life, and in the way I perceive the world. It’s local to me in Sydney, trading each day in the comfort of my home, in just my underwea…my tuxedo that I always wear around the home, and in seriousness: has made me optimistic about the technology and trading we can do in future, in Sydney, in Australia, and around the world.
I shall conclude before another Kardashian critique finds its way across my keyboard.
