Don’t Suck Too Hard on the Crypto-Success Stories

Let’s make a wild guess, shall we? Are you one those who heard about a crypto-success story or read about it somewhere? Congratulations, you’re not alone! To be more precise, every other person we know stumbled upon a success story here or there.

The story goes as follow: You know someone, who knows someone, who made a small investment in Bitcoin and made a ton of money. Are we right, or are we right?

All the crypto-success stories are overly heart-warming, they are promising, and they give you hope! There are butterflies in your tummy thinking about all the easy money you can make. It seems all so very easy. The truth about crypto-success?

They are Dangerous as Hell

Let’s see, how all the regular people are really introduced to cryptocurrency? What usually happens? They might stumble upon an article over the internet about a fictitious Bitcoin billionaire. Maybe one of their friends tells them about a friend whose life completely changed colors after investing in cryptocurrency.

So, without any slightest of understanding about the basic principles (moral or technical), investing in crypto can be disastrous. It’s not a magical place where one can get rich super duper fast by firing shots in the dark!

No Values or Principles

Reading, listening and spreading crypto-success stories can have major consequences. The people desperately want the “get rich very fast” formula to work its magic and the main motivation behind it all? Are one of the seven deadliest sins. GREED! There is absolutely zero driving force to learn and understand what the technology really stands for.

These stories have no talks about the beauty of this technology and how it can make the world a better place. In these myths, the crypto-world only promises to generate capital. A missing
“nouns” report needs to be filled! (pun-intended) Since hard work, commitment and dedication, the actual elements of a success-story are always missing.

Instant Gratification

People are lazy as hell. Most of them rather sit on the couch and showered with money! The path of less resistance is always attractive, and all the crypto-success stories cater to the same mentality. They are the perfect pitch on a late-night TV binging session. All the hopes to finally achieve your dreams can come true in the crypto-world.

All you need is a little bit of cash and some investing to do. The stories have proved it, nothing could go wrong. They start to relate the crypto-world to a mystical place where getting rich is super easy.

What’s the Solution?

If you’re passionate about the blockchain technology. Then its time to close your eyes and ears to all the crypto-success stories hurled in your face. Condemn them and never ever share them. All they do is more damage than any good. Time to be a true responsible citizen! Just spread all the principles, values and promises that the blockchain technology could bring to this world. You’ll be helping the crypto-world to fulfill its promise to the people. And, more self-satisfaction! More power!
