If you’re here, most likely you own some crypto. I don’t care what coins or tokens you hold. I’m just glad you’re here!
I’ve done my own studying & made my own decisions. You’ve done the same. Sometimes we come across bad information, and I do believe that true scams should always be exposed. But me calling what you hold a scam or shitcoin, just because i like something else, is actually useless. It doesnt change your mind & it closes me off from being able to learn from your research & thoughts. The tribalism just gets rediculous at times. If we’re both in crypto, then we are both on the same team!
Wether we agree on certain coins or not has nothing to do with the bigger picture. We’re in this space together. We both want crypto to succeed. What crypto needs to be successful, in general, is adoption. Adoption will be achieved through use case & awareness. Use cases are up to developers & pretty much out of our hands. However… “awareness” is something all of us can spread. We can teach others what we’ve learned. We can explain the basics to anyone interested enough to listen. Teach them how to research, set up wallets, make a transaction, etc etc. New people are looking into this space everyday! It’s our job to help educate them & grow the community as a whole. ( not just a particular coin )
Picture being brand new & coming into this space for the very first time. Would it excite you to see people arguing over what coin was “best” ? …. No, that would be confusing. Would you jump right into the middle of an argument you knew nothing about, or simply just turn away?
Everyone has their own preferences. I’m not saying you shouldn’t. Nor am I saying you shouldn’t express them. I am however saying, if I was brand new here, looking for advice, or maybe a nudge in the right direction for some research materials, half the posts & comments I see would probably drive me away. LOL
We don’t always have to be so polite it’s sickening. In fact, I love being a wise arse most of the time. But if you’re explaining crypto to some one, I will not be trashing your attempt to teach in any way. We can dislike each other later. ( & as often as you’d like lol) But while we’re here, let’s work together to help others understand the technology behind what we’re so passionate about & how it benefits ALL of us.
In years to come, let’s be able to look back on this time in history & feel like we made a positive difference in how crypto was adopted by those we might have otherwise scared away with all the needless infighting.
Thanks for hearing me out.
