I got into Monero in 2015 when I realized it did was BTC said it did. I remember I bought something online and I wanted to check how much XMR the person I sent XMR was holding. I couldn’t check, which I thought was a glitch or network error at first… but nope, that’s how it was designed, so I bought some more!
I was hoping to hodl all the way until like 2040 where I could buy a private bunker under a mountain in New Zealand and a vacation home in Japan. Spend my free time drifting cars down Mt Akina haha but as they say, life happens.
I’m currently in Thailand and the people here did a pretty good job despite an extremely unorganized government. Almost got away completely unscathed from COVID. We forgot to account for Murphy’s Law over here, and shit is starting to go from kinda bad, to completely fucked. pop up hospital tents, no vaccines, economy is in the shit, government is like a bunch of 6th graders that can’t make up their mind, etc
I’ve been on 60% salary for about 6 months now. Which is me barely scraping buy…. literally barely each month I have like $15 left over haha kind of funny how fucked it is. 6 months ago we only had like 50 cases per day, now we have thousands and thousands. So it’s probably not going to end anytime soon.
I want to have the diamond hands that I thought I had but damn, I could really use that as a safety net incases I get covid or my company closes or whatever. If the price of XMR crashes, I could be in a really bad spot.
Not sure where this post is going but I feel guilty for selling and I just wanted to make a post and tell someone about it. I’m glad I planted this XMR tree several years ago or who knows what kind of financial situation I could end up in.
Good luck to everyone out there and stay safe.
