in 2013 i’ve spent 450 for around half a bitcoin.
in 2017, when the price spiked, i sold a tiny part for 1k.
i’ve learned about the hard fork, and suddenly had playcoins to trade with… so i bought one additional “bitcoin cash” from my profits.
and now, a few months later, i earned my first 25 bucks from actively trading currency. “currency”. not sure how people see it.
it’s not much, i know, but i’m proud. and it’s thanks to EVE ONLINE. it taught me how to read buy-/sellorders, what to look out for, how people try to push prices up or down, how to think market… and it works! omg it really works!
i’ve spent weeks just looking at prices, movement, times of days. yesterday i’ve spent many hours just waiting for the drop i knew would come. eventually i’ve installed an order for a relatively low price, only to have it drop in the damn ■■■■■■■ single session of eight minutes i’ve not been looking at it. FOR HOURS I LOOKED AT IT JUST TO HAVE IT DROP IN THE EIGHT MINUTES I’M NOT LOOKING! price dropped lower than expected, but an hour later it rebound to the value i’ve bought at and then the waiting game started.
not even 24h later i dropped a sellorder. eventually some guy dropped one below mine, for FIFTY coins, and so i’ve adjusted my sellorder to sit below his, because it would have taken a good while until these 50 would have been sold…
five minutes later he cancelled his order and set it up below mine again. i thought “■■■■ this ■■■■”, and instead of playing along, i just turned off the mobile and called it a day. EVE taught me that items with big fluctuations can just be put on sale and forgotten, so ghat’s what i did. eventually it sold. not the amount i hoped for, but 25 bucks is 25 bucks, amirite?
Now i’m looking forward to the next 25. i’m not greedy, or materialistic, so my risk of making stupid mistakes because MONEYMONEYMONEYMONEY is low, and if i can make just 20 bucks every day, on average, that’s still 200 in ten days.
Damn. Wish me Luck … and thanks for your attention!
