My life is changing so fast (and it's damn scary).

avatar
(Edited)

sunset.jpg

I wonder why I didn't publish for over a month and I still don't find any good reasons.

Probably it was the overall crypto craze that drives me to exactly that point in time and space. Could easily be.

I 'suffered' a lot of emotionally mixed emotions in a very short amount of time, and as the title says, the recipe is ready for life-changing events (it's already happening).

Overall positive, also confusing, and (rarely but happens from time to time) scary.

Let me go into details.

In case you wonder; yes, I made it.

Probably you don't even know what I'm talking about.

Remember my masterplan which I published at the beginning of the year?

Although I won't reveal my exact positions I want to say that ''I've made it''.

My total net worth grew in a few months from the low ~100K's up to the 7 figures mark.

So yes, I'm a millionaire thanks to crypto.

Ironically now that I've achieved this financial status I'm not in a need or hurry to cash out into fiat.

Who on earth would cashout the most scarce asset into that ineffective & zombie currency which we call 'fiat'. I like shitcoins overall, but damn. The '€' it's the biggest shitcoin of them all.

This old meme applies (because basically, it's true). I am experiencing it firsthand. Incredible times.

neo.jpg

However, as much as I despise fiat. It's still required in the current system, and not everyone in my environment is as experienced in crypto-shitcoinery as I'm. A safety net was needed. So I provided and pulled the trigger.

cash.jpg

That's it. 100K€ worth of euro being withdrawn to my bank account.

I'm secretly waiting for a call from my bank manager trying to sell me a shitty investment fund or something.

I'll probably laugh at him and say something like:

''1% a year!?!? This is what I'm making daily at CubFinance bud''

And then scream: ''WENNNNNN''.

(poor khal btw)

100.000€

The thing is when I saw that number something has stirred inside me.

I realized that I'm not rich because 'I don't need to work anymore' (or at least for a for a substantial amount of time . I'm rich because NO ONE can buy my time now.

I felt something. A mix of happiness and exhaustion. I didn't know that I could be so tough (emotionally speaking). I also can't believe how life can change in such a short timespan.

At the bottom of the bear market, I had less than 10K$ (and sweated a lot to get it).

And with yesterday's dip, for example, my portfolio went down like 150K$, and I still slept well at night.

I'll be laughing at anyone who calls us 'lucky'.

Closing Thoughts

I wanted to write a post to get rid of the dust and as always I'm probably overextending and somewhat raving.

I don't have a f*cking clue about the future. Not even in the short term. (Well, I'm going to keep riding the bull wave until the top, thats' for sure).

I just want to say 'thank you' to all the people around the HIVE & Leofinance because this platform has been an incredible opportunity for many of us (and I'm not an exception) and it was feeling strange to stay silent for that big amount of time.

I'll try to recover again the posting schedule of 1-2 weekly posts. It helps a lot to keep the mind organized and follow/remember rigorously trading setups (because I can lie to myself, but not to an immutable content chain).

I didn't pronounce myself about CUB. I'll just say that I'm bullish.

pool.png

These CUB are 100% farm profits. And I'm going to keep stacking. CUB at 15-30$ is programmed.

WEN...? Soon™

(Ok, enough shilling for today).

Have a nice one!

man congrats!! we have a millionaire among us! You are a bright example of what one can succeed with cryptos and i believe you are also a role model now, so bear that responsibility :P I am honestly extremely happy for you right now and i think everyone who reads this will get motivated!

The only question i have, is about the taxes that will now occur with those 100k in bank. Have you thought, checked about that? I also don't know what's the regulation and laws in your country. For example, in Greece if i would cash out even 5k, the bank would ask where are that money coming from?

Finally, we are waiting for all your shillings on those amazing coins that you discover in order for us to become millionaires as well :P

Thank you bud!

Regarding taxes, it varies a lot depending where you are.

In my case (Spain), I have to pay ~21% of all the profits (it's a bit more complex than that coz we have tiers). And with 'profits' I mean also money in crypto changing from shitcoin A to B (a bit abusive though).

In addition if you have over 50K$ outside of the country you have to declare it (give that information). I feel a bit sorry for my accountant, because I give him more than 1 headache lol.

Regarding those magical coins. Don't overcomplicate.

I own 5-10 coins at max (AVA, HIVE, LEO, CUB, ORN, BTC & ETH) and stop counting.

I only trade with 5-10% of my net worth.

The other 95% is just rebalancing (profits from A to B, or cutting losses from D to C...) But I stay among these coins mostly.

Thank you :)

yeah that's quite abusive. so if you earn let's say 100$ from a good trade or buy of a shitcoin and then that shitcoin gets a dump and worths 0 you are still taxed in those 100$? or if you sell the shitcoin to euro for example, so that euro is considered a profit?

once again congrats on becoming a millionaire!

I like that. It summarize a post of mine of today in just a short sentence.

I am also happy for you because I know you deserve it. I honestly wouldn't deserve that much money. I don't put that much effort in research.

You on the other hand played this game perfect and we're not even at peak.

Don't regret your fiat withdrawal. As long as we still need cash around I don't see any problem in taking some profits off the table and turning them to cash.

Buy yourself something nice. You deserve it.

no such thing as 'I don't deserve that'. In a lot of cases, money is an indicator of nothing. I have a lot of acquaintances who are real douchebags.

Damn, fuckin research. And I still feel that 'I can't keep it up'. Let's see how the following months evolve.

And I don't regret it. Frankly ('might') I was in need of it. Not sleeping well lately. Hopefully, this improves over time.

And thanks, I'll celebrate somewhat.

Well done mate, that is a monumental effort.

I'll be laughing at anyone who calls us 'lucky'.

This is something that says a lot.

I do count myself lucky - because I was presented an opportunity and I had the balls to take it and stick through it. It hasn't been easy to hold the half decent stack I have, while the IRL is crushing, but here I am.

Funny, isn't?

I am not ready to go into the biggest shitcoin yet - but I have the feeling that I won't have to worry about my ability to be groceries again for a while, if it comes down to it.

Does it feel good to have that transfer made?

Thanks tarakp :)

What I mean with 'luck' is that absolutely everyone gets presented with opportunities from time to time.

I for example, knew about bitcoin in 2015 for the first time. Other one in 2013 and other 2017.

Knowing about it 'early' it's an opportunity itself and there's luck involved here.

the strength and the hard work comes after (when you buy it for the first/second/third time). You'll sell at the next dip or not?

This is when the hard work comes in (in the form of research, savings to buy the dip, mental toughness... etc) Hope you get my point :)

For example, I got lucky to know about steem in late 2017 and bought some at +1$. Thought 'the ones who bought at 0,1$ got lucky'. Moving forward to the 2018-2020 bear. Hive at 0,1$. Do you boufght?

Most people didn't. We're lucky? Not. We are seasoned in a thousand battles. That's what we are.

Have a great day Tarazkp, you consistency when posting is a great motivation for me.

And yes, feeling that transfer is somewhat strange (didn't hit the bank yet, hopefully on Tuesday or so). Never had more than 3K€ at the bank together. Will be funny :)

One of the things I say often enough is, "knowing isn't doing".

Back in 2011 I tried to buy Bitcoin with a few hundred € I had. Spent ten minutes trying to work it out, went and got drunk instead. Money was very tight then - I did myself no favours, but I obviously wasn't ready.

Yeah, I completely understand.

My first fiat to crypto was steem at 1.80 - watched it go to 8, held it down all the way too. :) Yes, I bought a bit.

And yes, feeling that transfer is somewhat strange

I can imagine. Do you have something in mind for it?

Uff..

Llevo invirtiendo desde hace una década aprox, lo he perdido todo y he ganado muchísimo varias veces (no solo en crypto). Lo que tiene emprender supongo.

Realmente en crypto ~4 años (desde finales de 2016 donde empezé a hacer research algo más consciente ya aentender bitcoin).

Y mi inversión total habrá sido de 10-20K$ de mi bolsillo si cuento los dips comprados, la barbaridad perdida en shitcoins y demás hackeos varios.

Si aguantas, al final aprendes.

Forget about trading. Invest in good projects & people and keep it up with their development for months. Don't rush things. this is a patience game.

In my case, for example, I accumulated AVA for ~2 years around 0,1$ and took more than a full year to see some price appreciation.

Now AVA is at +4$ (a x40).

Do you really need trading? I guess not (and if you do it, do it with a very small amount).

Congratulations to you @empoderat. Gaining control over your time is likely to prove itself out to you as the greatest benefit of all. Time is the one "fixed constant" that is immutably the same for us all - 24 / 7 / 365. And there are no "do overs!" Only the opportunity to learn from our mistakes and do better ...

Cub Finance is a powerful "economic engine." Given the track record of Khal and his team, I believe it is only truly just getting started. It has already provided me and my beloved a very significant "change your life" opportunity. I am looking forward to more to come in the future.

All the best to you and yours in making wise decisions about how you will now invest the most valuable asset you will ever have - your time! And may you choose wisely in how elect to protect your health, so that you may enjoy it. 🦁🚀

Well now that you wealthy and the boots not on your neck.. Maybe you'll have time to look into ideas like universal basic income. i too don't have to work a 9 to 5. i own a farm i do fairly well and it gave me time to think about creating not just ways to make money in crypto for myself. however not to maybe focus on other people as well so that crypto can spread economic prosperty to others as well. So i encourage to look at intiatives like my own the bitcoin myk ubi program and the bitcoinmyk backed dollar coin that we hope one day will hope to grant these freedoms to more people than just a small few and congratulations to you.

You know all the good things I think about you, I told you already haha ;)
But once again congratulations for reaching your 2021 goals in... March haha.
And it's not because the bar was too low (come on 1M man) but just because you nailed it !
Great motivation to see you achieving crazy goals like this.
Enjoy mate ;)

I don't deserve such a treatment hahaha; you're going to make me blush!

And was kinda unexpected, I honestly was waiting for (at least) a few months more of hustling! But yeah, reaching the 1M mark (now slightly lower due to the withdrawals and all that stuff) it's something very crazy.

Thanks for your words :)

I'll be laughing at anyone who calls us 'lucky'.

You can say that again. The ability to invest at the bottom of a bear market and hold until the end of a bull market requires a mindset that takes many years to cultivate. It takes understanding the market and developing sufficient intestinal fortitude to be able to ride the market whose volatility is something most investors in legacy markets could never stomach.

Congratulations!

Well, not exactly at the bottom.

I bought all the way down (with severe losses in the path). Thankfully this resulted in a great preparation for the exact opposite scenario.

I can handle +/- 100K$ swings and still don't feel anything (only a bit of pain, sure, but affordable).

Nice article man - is giving strenght for my planed future tasks. I would say I am at the beginning of a great journey maybe a little further...
My Portfolio exploded this January when I discovered DeFi from under € 5k to 40k at the time of writing.
Since late 2017 in Cryptos - suffered so much pain but nowadays I can smell the fresh breeze of sweet wealth awaiting me.
So, thanks again and wish me luck to enter the millionaires Club like you did soon!

Much Love and 💎🐾

Such an inspiring read and I'm so happy for you. I don't know if I could handle the pressure on the way up. But, I've dreamed of what you actually got to experience.

I'm a small bag holder in hive/leo so I doubt I will get to your type of position but I wonder can it be done in hive/leo with no more investment. Just working hard and earning. Do you have a curation method here or did you advance your positions with savey buying? I'd love to learn. I mainly want to curate to make new authors happy and encourage them to stick around. To me that will insure hive/leo value into the future.

Congrats and thanks so much for writing about this.

Curation in LEO doesn't matter anymore. I usually spend most of my upvote power engaging in comments. When I'm afk for a few days it's being slowly deployed following votes of other curators/whales.

Look at this post for example. As I'm celebrating a huge milestone I'm sharing a lot of love (and destroying my LP in the process.)

Enjoy!

Good point. I give 100% votes to my commentors using the vote multiplier tool so it doesn't drain my hive and I can do it on other tribes as well. Then if I have any left, it's curation.

Unfortunately for the other person my votes isn't worth much only about .3 but it's growing!

Really happy for you, its great to have a crypto millionaire cheering everyone else on. Its very meaningful and inspiring.

Sincere Congrats, man. I think we share nationality, as I recognize your nick in my mother language ;-)

Only two comments:

  • Be careful of taxman. Those withdraws make all rings sound.
  • What I would do: Put some BNB in Binance Card wallet. Use the Binance card for everyday spending, while stacking BNB cashback ^_^

Other than that:
Always wise to cash out a 10% in peaks. Or reinvest in some long-term, boring stuff. I would shill Anchor Protocol savings, Mirror Finance synthetic stocks (BABA and FB stupidly cheap right now), some boring AAVE farms, some Decentraland/Sandbox/Splinterlands LAND, things like that.

That's it. Enjoy the time, enjoy the freedom. That was the ultimate goal for everyone. Some just need 1 million, some needs 10, some don't need even 50K. Love, Laugh, Learn and Keep on!

hehehehe, catalans everywhere. what a fucking annoying citizens we are.

Respecto lo que comentas:

  1. Estoy al tanto y todo está declarado y 'legal' en mi caso. Jamás escatimes en un buen gestor que te ayude a llevar este tipo de cosas. Creo que es preferible declarar y pagar un 'lógico' 19-21% de los beneficios y vivir tranquilo. Mientras tus balances no sean demasiado abultados no te preocupes, pero siempre tenlo en cuenta (más en mi caso dado que crypto es mi primera fuente de ingresos).

Piensa también que nuestro querido gobierno no está tan al tanto con crypto (aunque ahora se estén poniendo las pilas). Deberían dar gracias de que declaro voluntariamente.

ya poniéndonos un poco chulos, si quieres apretar más de la cuenta es muy fácil. No me imagino a un señorito de hacienda cogiendo etherscan, mucho menos como para embargarme. Mucha suerte jajaj

De hecho lo tengo clarísimo. Me congelas/embargas mi cuenta bancaria? Ok. Suerte. No vas a ver nada más.

Así que se vayan preparando, porque la que se viene en este sentido es gorda. Todo lo que se habla de los youtubers? ya verás cuando empiecen a aparecer los crypto-millonarios

  1. ya lo hago ;) aunque soy muy reticente a tener 'demasiado' en CEX'es. Incluso 10 BNB. Mucho mejor en cualquier protocolo defi que ya haya sido un poco 'testado'. un 2-3% de cashback no compensa cuando puedes tener ese mismo BNB rentando a un 20-30% anual fácil en autofarm/pancake, si necesitas ayuda coméntame, aunque entiendo que ya estarás al tanto.

Gracias por las consideraciones. De hecho creo que tengo pendiente de responderte un comment desde lbi-gov. A ver que hacemos con los dividendos porque lo que propones es interesante.

Un saludo y un placer leerte!

Jejeje que crack. Veo que mis consejos sobraban XD

  • Totalmente de acuerdo con pagar "El Impuesto revolucionario".
  • Agree tb en que good luck para enterarse de todo. Deberían contratar a 100 tíos como nosotros. Y como dices en tu OP, ahora es complicadillo igualar nuestras tarifas XD.
  • Lo de BNB no es tanto para maximizar yield si no por que ahora mismo es un buen off-ramp al mundo fiat, evitando mas transferencias a los bancos. Al menos hasta que BlockFi saque tarjeta y los de Xapo resurjan desde Gibraltar. Y si encima cae un cashback, ni tan mal. Con 10 BNB tienes un 2%, juraría.
  • Si, anduve trasteando con Sushi allá por Agosto, asi que he podido jugar la de CUB bastante desenvuelto.
    -Hecho de menos mucho un chat peer-to-peer estilo el chat de Keybase para la comunidad Leo. algo rápido y privado. En vez de tanto discord. O igual es que ya estoy harto del Discord y los spammers, no sé... A ver si Khal se pone a ello jajajaj

Congrats on this incredible feat, just yesterday I was talking with other two friends and we agreed towards that insane $1M goal and work towards it even if it takes us 10 years from now!!

$1M is really insane money if converted into our fiat here

Dang you are crushing it! Fully agree you do have to pull some out into Fiat if that's your only income source as nearly 99% of the places that I work with at least still only take Fiat and no crypto. At some point that will change but honest I like you enjoy holding on to my crypto as I see we are just starting to scrape the surface of it all.

How not to feel identified with this publication? When I read your story I immediately thought of my own, of all that I suffered and struggled for so many years when I did not know about cryptocurrencies, much less about Hive and LEO. When I discovered this social network my life immediately took a 180º turn, in just three months since I joined my income multiplied, to the point that now I can achieve my dream of becoming an entrepreneur, being the boss of my effort and time is something priceless and thanks to this great community I can finally feel what it feels like. I feel so excited, for you, for me and for all the members of Hive and Leofinance that reach their goals because we believe in this project and we see that it rewards us.

It's so good seeing those in the community riding the wave and taking things to the next level.

Like you said, cash outs are a part of the journey in order to keep living within a society that is still heavily fiat dominated.

But what crypto and especially sites like LeoFinance and Cub Finance have done, is given you an alternate income stream.

This is the key!

Congrats and looking forward to seeing your journey continue because this is only just the beginning!

:)


It helps a lot to keep the mind organized and follow/remember rigorously trading setups (because I can lie to myself, but not to an immutable content chain).

Haha as a trader myself, I loved this line.

I know all about those battles within our own minds and the importance of keeping an immutable journal.

If you can't justify a setup in writing to the community, then you shouldn't take it!

Congratulations!!! reaching your goal.
Stories like your are the engine that motivates newbies (as me) to continue working to achieve our dreams.

"I'm rich because NO ONE can buy my time now".

By far my favorite phrase, many of us want to achieve financial freedom without even knowing what it means, once I read that sentence I knew what I want to achieve, I know the road will not be easy but I hope someday I'll find myself in the place you are now.

And be able to say "I'm rich because NO ONE can buy my time now"

Thank you very much for making this post and for showing me that I am not chasing an impossible dream.

Damn! This is so great to hear you've finally made it to the millionaire club :)
I'm being told by so many people to cash out some of my gains and not live like some hobo. But it's a real pain to get that crypto to fiat and pay so much of those Tx fees. I really want to see a day where I can straight up pay with my crypto without getting involved with these bankers.

It looks like you've made it to the other side. HODL strong and let's see if you can make it to 8 figures this bull market. Have a great day!

Problem is, as your net worth grows, you have to apply more 'preservation tactics' in your management.

Not the same to turn 10 into 100 (you can gamble it in a casino) vs 1000 to 10.000 (still, but much improbable).

Dang, that is really awesome. Congrats on that. I know it took a lot of hard work and smart thinking to get you to that point. Plus a couple of diamond hands I am sure. I hope to be at that point some day. I don't think you need to feel bad about that cash out to fiat. While we all hope that won't be the case one day, it is the current reality. I would do the same thing in your position. If I went to my mortgage company and said I wanted to pay off my house in crypto they would probably laugh. Being able to just give them the cash is the world we live in right now.

I learned about Venus Protocol thanks to you. You were making some very risky bets (that had good fundamentals) and it paid off. You are a success story of the power of free market capitalism and blockchain technology. You became an early adopter and used the tools and opportunities to your advantage.

I think many people can learn a lot from your past articles about investing. Congratulations on your newly found millionaire status. I'm still in the 5 figure territory and definitely make it to 6 figures this year. I'll see you up there eventually.

Best of Luck!
