Discover more from Your Crypto Community
My crypto journey since 2020. #27
If you have an idea you kept postponing, don't. Act on it!
I started actively posting on Twitter in November 2020.
As a trader, I knew a bull market was coming. This was an opportunity. But I had no followers. My posts got zero engagement.
No likes, no replies. Nothing.
But most of all, I wanted to become a better trader and also share what I learned since 2014. I realised Twitter can also be a great way to follow the market and scout for alpha.
My bet paid off.
The market exploded in late 2020 and in 2021 - Hello Bull Market!
My content started to get traction and my followers increased, fast.
When I started, I did not know I'd love having an audience so much. This was new to me.
In early 2021, I decided to create Your Crypto Community (YCC) on Discord. A safe place to onboard new people to this space. Now we have over 3,000 members!
I figured staring at charts all day alone is not the best use of my time. Sharing and engaging with others at the same time was much better.
We are all on a similar journey.
Don't be alone. Find a group.
If you're old in this space, then give back.
You never know where this will take you.
I never imagined I will have tens of thousands of followers, not to mention thousands reading my newsletter.
I always loved writing, but I did not have a medium to explore that.
Crypto gave me that.
Even if it all started with charts on TradingView.
The more time passes, I find that being a creator and having an audience is something quite remarkable. Especially if you grow into it organically. It's a process of self-discovery.
What is even more amazing is that it all started from a simple idea back in 2020.
I did not want to ride a new bull cycle alone.
I learned much earlier that you don't talk about crypto with real life people. I still think the same.
So I created my own crypto community, on my own terms. No scams or pump & dump groups.
We all chase money in crypto.
But this journey showed me that the most fulfilling part is not about the money.
It is about the people you meet and discovering yourself in new ways. Being passionate about something is rare.
When Twitter locked my account for a week this year, it felt as if I lost my voice.
But I was ready to start over.
Luckily, everything got back to normal and I learned a new lesson. Losing money in crypto is a lesson everyone learns. Losing your audience was a new experience for me.
Thank you for being here with me. It's a privilege and I know it.
If you have an idea you kept postponing, don't.
Act on it!
I did and here I am.
