Cryptocurrencies are exciting. Not only do they have the potential to change everything with innovation. But we can support these projects by owning some coins or tokens. And maybe make some profit in the process.

Whenever there’s a possibility of making money, there’s always a crowd of “get-rich-quickers.” Let me tell you this. Investing in cryptocurrency with this mindset will leave you broke. Day-trading seems easier than it really is. But the vast majority of us who try it will fail. …


Bull Markets Make You Money. Bear Markets Make You Rich

Thank you Pexels!

As the cryptocurrency market continues to go sideways, many new investors feel disappointed. Heartbroken. Scared.

Thousands of new people became invested into cryptocurrency in this last year. And after that massive dip in May, people are wondering what to do.

Don’t worry, comrades. Reinforcements have arrived. I’m a veteran of the 2018 crash. I know a thing or two because I’ve seen a thing or two.

I didn’t get rich during that bull run. But I survived it. And set myself up for success this last year.

These are things you can do to set yourself up for success next…


Is this Bitcoin price history repeating itself?

Thanks Pexels!

Disclaimer: This is not financial advice. I am not an expert. And you should do your own research.

Bitcoin had a crazy Bull Run this last year. Thousands of new investors bought Bitcoin hoping the price would continue to sky-rocket.

Unfortunately, that isn’t what happened. Cryptocurrency prices started crashing in May. Within a few weeks, over a trillion dollars were shaved off the cryptocurrency market cap. Ouch.

Bitcoin is down roughly 50% from its previous all-time high of $64k.

And no one knows what happens next. A lot of folks think this is the end. …

The Wild West

The wild west used to be the internet. But the Internet has been tamed. We have it under control. For the most part. But there’s a new frontier to conquer. And its name is cryptocurrency.

It’s only in the wild west that you can make good money. If society already has it figured out, what do they need you for?

Every generation has an industry like this. An industry that changes the world and makes a lot of people rich. At one…


Stop Living a Lie

Thank you Pexels!

“I really wish this guy would quit. I hate him” one of my friends told me once.

He had a coworker who was fake. Everything this guy said was a lie. What was worse, everything he did was a lie too.

We have a natural dislike of people that are fake. But in their defense, living authentically can be difficult. And if you’ve been living a lie long enough, embracing who you really is overwhelming.

But it is the greatest thing you can do for yourself.

As Carl Jung once wrote, “The Privilege of a lifetime is to become who…

The Scariest Part of Programming Made Easy

Thanks Pexels!

Data structures are hands-down the most intimidating part about programming. But they don’t have to be all that bad!

In this tutorial, we are going to explore what data structures are, the most popular data structures, and we’ll use easy-to-understand examples the whole way.

What is a data structure?

A data structure is a way to organize data.

Computers need to hold lots of data to make things work. Just think about how much data YouTube needs to store, process, and regularly feed back to users!

In order to make YouTube run smoothly, they need to organize and display the data in the most efficient…


Everything You Need to Know to Create a Dapp

Thank you Pexels!

This article will give you a brief overview of everything you should know when you’re getting started with blockchain development.

Let’s clear something up first. We are not building a blockchain here. That’s what blockchain core developers do. We’re here to learn the basics of blockchain app development. These are decentralized apps (Dapps) that are powered by blockchains.

There are many different blockchains to power our Dapp. But the largest is Ethereum.

In order to interact with the Ethereum ecosystem, you will need to have an Ethereum wallet and some Ethereum. One of the most popular Ethereum wallets is Metamask.


No, seriously…

Thanks Pexels!

The idea of blockchain systems replacing the monetary system, let alone the government, may seem unlikely.

Until you think about things long term.

There is no telling where the future will go. It’s hard to imagine anyone in the 1900s predicting smart phones or the internet. Human history is unpredictable.

Before we get into it, let’s get the definitions clear.

System — a set of procedures to accomplish a goal.

Blockchain — A system to record information that makes it impossible to later change. The blocks store data in an ordered sequence. A chain of blocks, if you will.

Blockchain…
