Europe summary: I traveled through Europe for about 3 months and am home. Some quick thoughts/wrap up of my time there. Here is a doner kebab, my favorite food there. Image
I started my journey in the UK, London specifically. Great time, the city itself reminded me of an old, clean version of NYC. Good diversity, very cool history. Food wasnt as bad as everyone said, too. ImageImage
Next I went to Birmingham, the midland city. Much quieter but still very peaceful in its own way. I can see the appeal and it kind of reminded me of the midwest in the USA. Image
Next up: Berlin. I really really enjoyed this city. It is a big city but it doesn't feel like a big city. I spent a lot of time here and loved the sights very much. I didn't like how strict the laws were in Germany; everyone was very much a rule follower and strict/rigid. ImageImageImage
Amsterdam was next! I saw some really great guys here. The dutchies are all very well represented in CT and they have a fantastic community. The food was also really tasty! ImageImage
Dubai was one of my favorites. Not only did all of CT go there but seeing friends, doing sand dune trips, sky diving, watching the boxing event- all good memories I'll remember for a long time. The fighters are all warriors. ImageImageImage
I went to Belgium next to visit more CT friends and eat food. I thought Belgium was a nice country- seemed pretty relaxed, they party pretty hard though. Everyone was casual. Waffles were on point. ImageImage
Italy was really beautiful and the food was great. It's such an older country with regards to the sites and the churches. People were very friendly and helpful. ImageImageImage
Italian coast was a sight to behold. Didn't spend much time there but is what it is. Would like to go back in the summer. ImageImage
Last on my trip was Portugal. Visited a few other friends and had some relax time on the beach. I liked Portugal, it was very chill and the people seemed very carefree. ImageImageImage
This is all a very condensed version of my 3 months travel. Overall, Europe is quite different than the USA. I liked the vibe quite a bit- it's relaxed and people seem to care more about work/life balance more. Perhaps its just bc I went to the big cities but the population...
density might have something to do with it. Even big cities in the USA can be pretty spread out (less so on the East coast).

I liked the fact that there were more mom and pop shops. Less corporate stores, more people in cafes and restaurants and bars. More people in the park.
What did I miss about the USA? I missed some of the conveniences of it. Big grocery stores are nice. More food diversity can be nice. I missed having the freedom to drive around sometimes.
I can see why people love living in Europe. You're 1 hour flight from a completely different culture/country. It's pretty affordable to also live in some cities in Europe. I could see myself living there for 6 months or something.
I don't think the actual digital nomad life is for me, though. I moved around a bit too much; staying in 1 city for weeks on end would be better. I was exhausted by the end of it and was very ready to be home.
With that said, I'm home for a few weeks before I head off to Puerto Rico. I have a few weeks to relax, find some schedule, not live out of a suitcase, and get back to work. I've really missed not being able to trade / invest/ research/ etc with crypto.
I know that the move to PR will be a longer stressful process and after I'm moved in there, I will be set for a while. I appreciate all the advice everyone gave to me for places to visit, food to eat, and overall travel advice. It was a great trip!

If you are new (got in 2021), you are probably not going to make it this cycle for a whole variety of reasons. With that said, if I were trying to spin $ up (a small stack) into generational wealth, there are a few things you can do: Image
(Note: I'm suggesting riskier plays in general, all of this is with the idea that you can lose 100% of your money at any time). That said, I think if you are young and have some money to play with, it's worth the gamble. There are a few ways you can go about this:
1) Regular trading is probably not the way to go. Unless you can dedicate A LOT of time in the next few weeks/months to learn, the R:R is probably not great rn. I'm not saying dismiss TA entirely but making it solely off TA (if you are new rn) is going to be hard.

The honest truth is that many here will see incredible gains over the next few weeks and then lose the majority of it when the bear market comes. Do not get married to your bags- when the time comes, you will need to be strong and let them go.
Like a companion at the end of a long journey together, you must say your goodbyes after mutually benefitting each other. Your bag of LINK, MATIC, SOL (or whatever gave you great profits) will pull back very hard. Look at Fall of 2020- this was not so long ago +everything died
Many on here were victims of 2018 when we saw a long long pullback and everything died. I was one of them; I lost a lot of $ (for me) back then and spent years trying to make back my losses.

@bumperfinance is a project I am working heavily with (+invested)

What is it?

Bumper is a DeFi protocol that allows you to set a floor price for your $ETH. It's better than a simple stop loss because you aren’t simply cashed out to USDC when the ETH prices drops below your... Image
set floor price. You never lose your exposure to the $ETH upside. You pay a small APR in premiums which is essentially buying an option to always sell your ETH for at least $xxxx, a price of your choosing. Image
2. How does Bumper work?

You simply open the dapp, set your floor price and amount of $ETH you wish to protect, deposit your ETH and receive bETH (bumper ETH) in return.

See this video for a demo of the dapp:

Price is fractal, you see similar price patterns across all time frames. I've long held the idea that #Altcoins are going to do well in the coming weeks...but I MUST check my own bias and prepare for the worst case. $BAND is interesting here. Potential double top formed.
(I realize it's not the same exact chart but you see pump->move down->accumulation->second exhaustion pump->bear move down).
Many $ALTS have this same type of price action. $ALGO hit a potential double top. $BTC looks a bit shaky. I wish trading was easy and I wish I could understand the macro better than I do.

$BTC: I was confident the 50k lows were going to get revisited in the coming days. I even posted a chart recently (here). That said, some discussions + charts with @NFT_Maximalist and @DaanCrypto makes me wonder if this is closer to March 12 2020 than anything recently. #Bitcoin
$BTC: I'm currently rethinking my idea and there were a TON of liquidations that happened this past weekend. This is the March 12th 2020 price action for reference.
$BTC: and here is the PA from this past weekend. April 2021

Quick thread on #Altcoins pairs: Seeing a lot of questions on do I trade in ALT/USD pairs or ALT/BTC pairs? Well, what do you want to accumulate? Generally speaking, ALT/BTC pairs are going to suffer when $BTC looks really strong. Why is this?
Well, an ALT/BTC pair is literally altcoin price divided by #Bitcoin price. So for example, if $SNX goes up 1% but $BTC goes up 10%, your SNX/BTC pair is going to go down. #Altcoins can stay the same price in USD but go down heavily in their ALT/BTC pair. Example next...
Look at $DOT during the Fall. Pretty much the same (relatively) in USD prices over months, DOWN huge in $BTC pair. What does this mean? It means you would have been better off holding #Bitcoin vs. #Altcoins (generally speaking).
