Alucard is a Stupid Dick Who Sucks at Crypto

By AlucardLife | cryptoinvesting | 27 Mar 2021


This is the realest shit I ever wrote.

— Alucard

Major takeaway from all this bullshit I'm about to write — it doesn't take a noob to make a noob mistake. Learn from me if you can. I'm talking to myself as well.

There were some protocols that were doing so well for me that I forgot they existed. I stored a lot of value in them and used them almost on a daily basis. But I wasn't in the Telegram groups. I didn't check their Twitter accounts. And I got caught in the middle of a version change on one of them.

Admins announced that the protocol would improve upon its structure by recalculating liquidation percentages. Of course the new calculation will make it possible to borrow less than in the previous version. For those who don't know, liquidation = bad. Whatever value you have in that protocol can be lost for no bigger reason than a flash crash. I have a substantial amount of capital in this thing.

The problem is that the UI is down until the new version comes and the smart contract is paused. I can't add assets to my account that would lessen my chance of liquidation. I'm sitting completely powerless in a situation that could cost me a lot of money.

My mind is coming up with ways to blame everyone else. It's doing this on autopilot. I'm nervous about losing all this money, and I'm trying to think of how to save it. My mind is trying everything it can to get up from the boardroom meeting, rip its shirt off and start yelling about random office politics.

But it's totally my fault. The marketing team posted many days ahead of time about the change and told everyone exactly what they needed to do. I just missed the announcements because I'm out chasing fuckin "low cap gems." Giving all my time to unproven protocols trying to score a 100x. Writing articles about how shitty some shitty Youtube content creators are instead of getting down and dirty into the governance of the protocols that hold my future.

Like, what the fuck do I really care about The Moon giving shit advice or Bitboy pumping and dumping the idiots who follow him? If I lose this money, I'm set back for months. If I fail at crypto, I won't have enough money to have a family. I'll have to go back to working as a slave for some fucking corporation and I'll end up some incel playing video games all day. I won't be able to get my niece and nephew presents or give money to my church. Everything is riding on this. And I'm worried about what Ivan on Tech is doing instead of reading whitepapers.

All of that is going through my head at the same time that my mind is trying to place blame somewhere else. Anywhere else. But I can't think about any of that. I've got a situation now that I've got to handle.

So I join the Telegram group, pull up the Twitter and the Medium and start collecting emails and shit. And I throw a fuckin fit. Texting and emailing every @ I can find. I'm giving any suggestion I can think of to let me add assets to my account and avoid liquidation. I'm telling the developer to develop shit. IDGAF. I'm in total damage control mode.

All the stuff I talk about in my other blog posts — the Fed sucking donkey dick, the new beautiful world I want, being in it for the tech — out the window. All I cared about was my money. I thought about how sad I'd be and how many people I'd disappoint if I fucked this up. My world became very small.

Eventually the admins got back to me. Luckily some other people in the group had the same problem as me. I guess we made enough noise that the dev changed his plans. The admin announced "liquidation protection" that would allow us to fix our accounts after the new version came out. So for now (we're still in the middle of the shit), we were safu.

I thought about how fragile my worldview was. One fuck up has the potential to screw up not only my money, but my entire life plan. I thought about all the shit I talked on Publish0x and that if I backed down from the philosophy I've been talking for the past few months here, I'd be a fraud. Not worthy to produce children, and I mean that. Mediocre. I hate mediocrity. Just another schlub waiting for directions, with no real input to give to the world.

I give myself this much credit — I don't have to actually lose the money to have this epiphany. If the dev follows through and I keep up with announcements, my money is safe. But just the scare is close enough. I have to set things up now to ensure I can afford to keep my soul. So I'm going to focus my attention much more on the important things in crypto that actually make money. This is even though my most popular articles are all about Fed-hating and content-creator-hating. I had to ask myself this question — do I want to end my life as some dirty hippie with a shit-talking blog, or do I really want to make a difference in the world?

I want to make a difference. Expect much less negativity here and much more technically dense and pertinent information. More whitepapers, less Elliotrades. I'm gonna actually begin my path to being a dev. Sorry if I've been your libertarian entertainment, but that has to stop. I'm not a young man who has time to play, and I refuse to be a useless man. World has enough of those.

Hope you got something from this. Might be just words to you, but I experienced all of this. I recommend you avoid a similar experience.
