Week 4

Last week I shared a medium article of a guy who strongly recommends not to become a developer but a trader. His words are still spinning in my mind. I’m not a trader. I’m developing things for a better world!

I’m the co-founder of a disruptive product; we can easily #TakeTetherdown and give the crypto market a truly decentralized solution. Why would I give up to bring something new to the world?

Browsing on Youtube, I found there are thousands of Bitcoin evangelists. What’s their gain of talking so much about it? Is it just for fun? There is a lot less talking about other cryptocurrencies and their real use cases. Usability is the topic here.

This question came into my mind because I was having a cup of coffee and reading a chart of Bitcoin’s price. Are the bitcoiners aware of what is happening with their beloved coin? I ask myself tons of questions every day.

Hope you can share your thoughts with me. Let's talk about the price and the fact that there is less than 20% of the total supply available and unmined. After that goes to cero; what do you think is going to happen?

After thinking long and deep in bitcoiners, I went to a different area of the blockchain ecosystem. I want to present my respect to early adopters. Being part of disruptive technology, a cult, a lifestyle, even a diet requires big balls. Please understand me; I admire people like that.

Being a crypto entrepreneur is a hell of a ride. Unbelievably wild but, at the same time, nourishing and enlightening. I’ve learned I’m capable of things I thought impossible and way out of reach for me. Now I’m aware of a different world I didn’t know existed. Friends, it’s a great world! We can make it greater when we #takeTetherdown and give the crypto world a better way to do business.

Of course, I’m on that path because it’s the main purpose of my project: The GAUGECASH. Read more about it here.

Remember my raising round? I’m still on it. Looking for a long term partner, not a one night stand. There are thousands of VCs, funds, angels, but I haven’t found a match. It’s harder than Tinder!

After my weekly chores, I couldn’t help myself watching a movie Alejandro Sanz made last year. Highly recommended. Available in Prime video, it's called El Mundo fuera. It gave the whole covid thing a very new perspective for me.

We tend to think our problems are the world’s problems. But they are not. Empathy is important. Let's keep it in mind this week.

Follow me on social media and enjoy some fun things I share, wild comments, and some crazy ideas.
