The Light At The End Of The Tunnel
August 5th, 2022

When I joined crypto somewhere in 2021, in midst of bull run, like many other hoping to go to the moon, I would have never thought the journey would be this dramatic!

Like most of people I started with a centralized exchange account, buying some crypto and waiting for explosion. I'm sure many of you can guess what happened next...

I woke up some morning to see Bitcoin and other altcoins deep in blood, everybody tweeting HODL HODL, and my unexperienced ass went down with them to the deepest levels.

Next strike hit some days later, when my phone died and took my google authenticator with it, Bye Bye CEX account!

Do you agree that this wasn’t the best onboarding experience?

As frustrating as it was, I decided to learn trading and continue my journey. Funds Found, New account created, Two liquidation in a month! I couldn't even believe it, and I was living the darkest days of my life back then...

After a few days, I found some people explaining how trading digressed and hide the nature of crypto; "There are more into this than trading", They said. I started to learn more about blockchains, protocols, educating myself in every aspect possible while keeping distance from trading, and BOOM; Suddenly everything changed…

I fell into the rabbit hole and everything start to take shape. I couldn't care less how the price of assets were performing. I got to knew the best protocols and people that were trying to build extraordinary stuff that helps people be financially and socially free. I got involved in various blockchain based professions that helped me build a more stable financial condition even in bear market.

Now that I look back, I am really proud of the hard work and consistency that I showed. I know that entertainment and fun experiences are the best possible ways to onboard people to crypto, much like what is doing with teaching people what are the true principals of Web3. There is no need to bring a large amount of capital in this market to be able to get the most out of it. As a matter of fact, you only need your hard work and enthusiasm to be successful and organically engaged in Web3.
