Next week is my 1-year cryptoversary. I made my entrance into ₿ almost one year ago to the day. This time last year

I had no idea the value of ₿ was increasing in the first few months that followed. Nor did I know what a Kijun-Sen or Ichimoku Cloud was at the time. I didn’t have any alerts set up in TabTrader. And I didn’t know how to make a killing on hard forks. Nope.
A year ago I was, for lack of a better term, crypto-stupid. Just like this guy…
The dotard, who said, and I quote:
The other thing I've always [said] about bitcoin, governments — and this is not a technological statement — governments are going to crush it one day. Governments like to know where the money is, who has it and what you're doing with it, in case you haven't noticed. Right?Jamie “Dotard” Dimon
And now today, almost one year after I decided to buy bitcoin, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of urgency to continue beefing up digital security and gaining independence so I can truly be minimal to the max.
Which is why I’ve decided today will be the day I begin moving away from my crypto-crutch… Coinbase. The training wheels I used to ease my way into cryptocurrency. The crossing guard who wants to take my hand 🚸 and undoubtedly leverage its all-knowing KYC so that I may never join the World After Capital—no matter where I go.
It’s time to own my fear of alts and begin making my entrance into some definitely, maybe, probably but hopefully not so shitty shitcoins while pushing myself further and further outside the comfort zone. There’s no choices left…
