Easing into Crypto logoCryptocurrency is my newest obsession. As an ENTP in Myers-Briggs, I love that crypto is so multidisciplinary. It really feeds my cognitive functions of Ne (i.e., exploring possibilities) and Ti (i.e., logical accuracy). Especially if you're an ENTP or INTP as well, I believe this will fascinate you.

Cryptocurrency is about a lot more than just making money. We'll get there in later posts in the series, but first, I want to help you understand how crypto actually works (including how it will transform society, promote social justice, lead to brand new forms of art and creativity, form the foundation of futuristic online worlds, and protect personal autonomy).

You might be wondering:

  • Did El Salvador really make Bitcoin an official currency you can pay taxes with? Yes.
  • Did an NFT (i.e., a piece of art that lives inside cryptocurrency) really sell for $69 million? Yes.
  • Is Bitcoin actually useful for anything, or is it just creating a lot of needless pollution? Yes.

There's a lot to unpack here, and most educational resources I've come across are either way too simplistic or way too advanced.

I'll start at the very beginning and gently guide you through all the concepts you need to understand to feel comfortable with cryptocurrency. There's so much potential here, but I want to do what I can to protect you from getting scammed or making costly mistakes.

I certainly won't claim to be an expert, but I've spent many hundreds of hours studying all this, and I'm continuing to learn and make mistakes every day.

My goal with this series is to get you excited about what's possible here, and then to help you out by sharing what I wish I'd known back when I got started.

This is for you whether you're brand new to crypto (maybe even brand new to investing in general), a seasoned investor wanting to dive deep for potentially huge returns, or a non-techie passionate about social justice, personal freedom, or moving toward a utopian future for humanity.

P.S. If you'd prefer to listen to this series instead: I've already made the first few episodes available in podcast format and I'm working on the rest of them. You can find everything on Spotify or iTunes.

COVID-19 / Pandemic

I'm not a medical professional, but I was frustrated by all the misinformation and confusing advice out there on COVID-19.

So, I did a lot of research (synthesizing hundreds of articles) and created this series of posts with everything you need to know from how to keep a "bubble" or "pod" safe, to which specific masks are best, to the latest information about the virus "variants" and vaccines.
