Sometimes I regret the day that I first heard about crypto
Sometimes I regret the day that I first heard about crypto.
Sometimes I look back with homesick to the peaceful state of mind of just earning money with a job I love.
Why I couldn’t settle with this idea? How come we are always looking for more?
I regret the day that I learned about Bitcoin, Ethereum and other altcoins,
about ICO’s, IEO’s, graphs, whales and mining.
This isn’t who I am? Will this be the primary focus for the rest of my life?
I long for the day that I don't even think about checking my portfolio.
I long for the day when I don’t think about a bull or bear market when I see my son coloring with green and red.
I long for the day that I’m not so naïve to think that I will buy a Volkswagen California with crypto money.
I long for the day that I don’t think about writing down everything that happens in my life on a blockchain-based blogging website.
I long for the day that I prefer to talk to real people instead of preparing my next magnus opus.
Will those days ever come back?
And then I think,
those days are the best thing that can happen to me.
Then I realize that I only invested money that I can afford to lose.
Better yet, I'm lucky enough to not have to invest money that I can't afford to lose.
Then I realize that I’m lucky to be educated enough to not believe that every coin is going to the moon.
Then I realize that I have two fantastic and healthy children,
and a supporting and lovely wife.
Then I realize I will never be a trader and I’m perfectly fine with it.
Then I realize some people really regret the day they first heard about crypto.
I’m just lucky enough to consider it as a game.
A game that I just love to play.
A game that's purely incidental.
A game that has to remain a sideshow.
It's just a game.
