When Did You First Get Involved With CryptoCurrency Markets?
May of 2013, right after the first big Mt.Gox scandal. I had read about bitcoin in the news and was curious to learn more. Then I got my first bitcoin social media client and jumped in with both feet! I started participating with the social media community and started investing. I immediately fell in love with the community.
Do You Believe Bitcoin Will Eventually Be Viewed With The Same Respect As Dollars, Euros And Other Forms of Money?
No. I think the bitcoin will always be somewhat outside of fiat and that is what is appealing about it. I do think that is solves some of the issues of fiat, especially in places like Cyprus where bitcoin has been more stable than their currency.
Which Kinds Of Cryptocurrency Have You Owned?
I have primarily owned bitcoin, though I have been tipped dogecoin.
Do You Favor One Kind of Cryptocurrency and What Makes Some Better Than Others?
I still prefer bitcoin over the other cryptos. Though I have started to look into litecoin and wankcoin. I like the adoption rate of bitcoin and its versatility. The coin is really starting to cross the adoption chasm and I think that we are seeing it at its infancy. Some very exciting things are in our future with bitcoin.
What Is The Most Important Thing Someone New To Cryptocurrency Should Know Before Investing Time or Money In It?
This is not a get rich quick scheme. You will not buy 1 bitcoin and be a millionaire over night. You will also see fluctuations in the market, and don’t panic when you do. Bitcoin is going through some major growing pains and is coming through strong. But there are likely more to come. I think there is some incredible opportunity but you need to be ok with riding the bitcoin roller coaster.
