About This Site
In the spirit of crypto, you can call me Satoshi Nakamoto*, and I’d like to welcome you to Your Crypto Life.
If you are new to cryptocurrencies and don’t know where to start, or you are finding them difficult to understand and get to grips with, then you have come to the right place.
Your Crypto Life has been built to help people just like you.
DISCLAIMER: I am not Chinese, and I didn’t create Bitcoin 🙂
A little about me
As you can see from the image, I believe in helping people to help themselves.
I’d like to use my experience and knowledge to help you get started, so here is a little about me.
I have been working online since the mid 90’s, and over the past 20 odd years I have seen a lot happen in the technology world.
I lived through the dotcom boom and bust, I watched the birth of Google and Facebook, and I have been part of the growth of the digital marketing era that was kick started with the advent of Google Adwords.
I’ve owned 3 software companies during that time, and have worked in the insurance, online dating, online casino, forex and digital marketing spaces during that period as well.
I currently run an online strategy consultancy**, and in my spare time I am an ultra trail run event organiser and ultra trail runner.
So just what is Your Crypto Life all about?
I have been interested in the cryptocurrency space since around 2012, but had never given it too much focus as it was still so new, and I didn’t really make an effort to fully understand the underlying technology that made cryptocurrencies work – aka the blockchain.
That all changed for me in early 2017.
After first noticing the rise of Bitcoin and later other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Ripple, I started to take closer notice.
I immersed myself in the subject of cryptocurrencies in order to educate myself further about this amazing technology, and what I discovered was really amazing and exciting!
Then, in December of 2017 during the craziness of the cryptomarkets hitting stratospheric highs, I noticed that at every single social interaction I had, the conversation eventually turned to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
During these conversations I discovered that most of the people I spoke to didn’t really understand what cryptocurrencies were really about.
They wanted to get involved in this cryptocurrency “goldrush”, but didn’t quite know where to begin.
I also noticed that most of them:
- didn’t understand what the blockchain is or how it works, or how this technology has the ability to significantly alter the world we live in
- didn’t understand what mining is or how it works
- didn’t know how wallets worked, or what exchanges were
- weren’t clear on how to trade cryptocurrencies, or how to access the potential money they could make from these trades.
In general, they all wanted a piece of the action, but had no real idea on how to get started.
A lot of them were also quite sceptical of this cryptocurrency boom.
They had heard all the doomsayers (aka nocoiners) speaking about it just being a bubble, and how they could lose everything, and there seemed to be an underlying fear of the world of cryptocurrencies.
I wanted to help them – and you!
Based on my years of experience with building and publishing websites and online platforms, I decided to build Your Crypto Life.
The idea is to create a single portal that can guide people in their journey into the crazy and wild world of cryptocurrencies.
Make no mistake, you can easily lose your shirt if you don’t know what you’re doing, but I hope that the information I have collated on this site will go a long way towards preparing you to safely get your feet wet in the exciting world of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
The way of the future?
This technology is the way of the future. I believe it will change the world as much as the advent of the internet changed the world in the 90’s, or how the rise of social media changed it even further in the new millenium.
You can choose to be a part of it, or you can sit on the sidelines and watch as it passes you by – the choice is up to you.
However nothing comes for free, and you must make a point of educating yourself thoroughly if you want to venture into this crazy world.
If you do decide that this is something you would like to understand better (and hopefully profit off) then I hope that you find the information laid out in this site helpful, and that in turn it will help you to become a part of the cryptocurrency revolution.
