So as the months went by, I was just working my day job, in construction, then coming home to try and learn more about Bitcoin and crypto currency in general. As you guys know, my journey really began last February, in 2021, just as the pandemic was hitting the USA. I had alot of new found free time on my hands, so that's what I did with it. Got into crypto first, and started reading and watching videos non stop. To try and learn everything I could, as fast as I could. My FOMO, was in full hyper mode!! But then that, really opened up my eyes to investing, just in general. I quickly realized how much potential and opportunity there is with crypto. But at the same time, there is some very risky stuff to be aware of as well. Another thing to watch out for is scammers. There are scammers in every walk of life, but these crypto scammers, I have to admit. Are pretty smart and very deceptive! Always be positive your connecting your wallets to the correct, legitimate sites. So, the first scam I fell for was with Chainmine.io and their so called cloud mining contracts! Again, I didn't lose alot, 20 in Bitcoin, but still, it was a mistake, and loss of money. Not to mention the loss of time interacting with a scam ultimately! Most mistakes can be easily been avoided too. A little patience can go a long way. And if it's really that good of an idea or whatever. Shouldn't really matter if or when you get involved. Just get involved!! I wish I would have been a little more patient and did a little more research on them, but hey, you live and learn rite? Exactly why I always, always, always, start with little bits of money first too. Just to check and confirm everything is working as planned. Never hurts to be too sure of something if you ask me! I rushed into that purchase with them, not doing good DYOR!!! And ended up paying for it!! My 2nd mistake, was even worse!! So stupid and greedy of me! Lol so naive too!! To think people wanted to help me double my Bitcoin so much!! That I just had to send them any amount!! And they would send me double back!! I couldn't believe it, when I first read it!? Double my Bitcoin? Just send it here.... And I get double in return!!!?? I have to try this!! And immediately sent over the 17 bucks in Bitcoin I had on Coinbase, from the Learn and Earn Program, that I had exchangd into Bitcoin!!! Lol And yep!! We all know what happened next!! Lol And why I write this post today. Because I don't want to see any of that stuff happen to anyone. Especially anyone just starting out in the space.That kind of stuff can turn people away from crypto really quickly! Another one I've heard about, but not been involved with, was accepting bad coins?! Or just someones random coins they just came up with or created themselves basically? And putting them in your wallet along with your other assets? I heard that could potentially be bad, and to never try doing? Or clicking on bad links from phishing emails and SMS texts as well? And then responding to it, with all your login info and or passwords? I don't say all this to scare anyone, there are tons of friendly, helpful people in crypto! Just be aware of what your doing and definitely don't put all your eggs in one basket!! Alot of this technology is still very new and vulnerable to a hole list of things. And always!! DYOR!! ALWAYS!!
Some mistakes I've made
