Cryptocurrency: How It Started

With Cryptocurrency, it is hard identifying what you would like to invest in, unless you are a crypto expert. If you are like most of us, you are a beginner, looking to get your feet wet.

When I first heard about cryptocurrency, it was in relation to Bitcoin. It was about 10 years ago. A friend of mine discussed it, which I did not know much about. I thought the whole idea of another currency was ludicrous (almost spelled it ludacris 😂). This was because most time people think this way at things they don’t understand. The whole idea of investing was foreign to me. Although my graduate school created a platform for us to start investing, I like many others, started the initial phase of investing and then fell off checking on my investment.

I got back into investing in 2018, which my sister and I started this process together. We invested in companies on the stock market such as: Disney, Apple, and EQR. This set the stage for investing in cryptocurrency in the future.

Investing in cryptocurrency started around the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021. My other sister had started investing in cryptocurrency due to her many discussions with another co-worker. The co-worker guided her in discussions about getting a crypto wallet and how to invest. This helped me understand cryptocurrency a little better and start researching information.

Honestly, cryptocurrency is a complicated subject, but it doesn’t have to be. The stock market was once complicated as well until I started looking into stocks, helpful tips, and guidance to investing. This is the same with crypto. As I begin to research and look into currencies, I am able to determine my watchlist and invest.

Here is my current watchlist:

Bitcoin*

Ethereum*

Cardano*

Compound*

Amp

Clover Finance

BarnBridge

Celo

(Items with asterisk mark just means it could be included in my top five cryptocurrencies in the future)
