This site documents my burgeoning foray into the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. This is a news aggregation site, a full accounting of P&L regarding my investments, and a place for active discussion.
Intended to be newbie friendly, I hope that by sharing my experiences, others may benefit from both the good and the bad decisions I will undoubtedly make. Additionally, by documenting P&L, I hope that others can get a true feel for the risks and benefits of both mining as well as outright buying and trading of cryptocurrency. Here, I will disclose my full stake in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and any other altcoins I invest in. I will share my thoughts, strategies, and results of every decision I make regarding these investments.
About me: I’m a dad, a veteran, and a middle aged guy who first got into computers when the family got an Apple ][+ back in 1982. Though I’ve been in the technology field since the dot com bubble, it’s been very much on the infrastructure side. This website is a forcing function for me to learn some new skills to be able to display the vision I have for it in my mind’s eye. I aim to teach myself some coding and learn about blockchain. Maybe, just maybe, what I learn here will result in a shift of my career trajectory. Or maybe I decide I like what I’m doing now. Only time will tell.
Full disclosure: I am not a financial adviser and I’m not offering financial advice. All I’m doing is sharing what I’m doing and distributing content for others to make their own decisions. I am not spending anything I can’t afford to lose, and cryptocurrency is not my sole investment strategy. It’s just the one I’m focused on here. As of the time of this writing, I am taking a long term position in cryptocurrencies and am not interested in pump and dump. That doesn’t mean I might not do some active trading though.
