3 Months Break

Decided to make it or break it and thus left NTUitive/ NAMIC in Apr 2021 to help to pave ways for the family business despite perhaps I know this ain’t an easy journey and at the same time, took a break to work on myself, mental health and reassessing my path forward.

And then I realised – things will never work out the way it is despite how much you have planned including your back up plans.

1 week before I left NTUitive, my crypto trading went beyond the negative for the first time as I didn’t pay attention to my stop losses plan. For short trade, it’s heart breaking but I decided to HODL. And the best, R crashed my car and I just need to bring forward to scrap it. (Edited to include that he went on well and survived the crash. Er hmm.)

1 week after I left NTUitive, the spike in the community cases and clusters made me foresee a dejavu which honestly is driving me nuts due to the incident that happened last year that left me with trust issues with relationships ever since. I told myself that I will fight and win this war but internally, it gave me insomnia and etc. Thank god for my closest kins standing by me and distracting me wherever possible.

My said concerns were formalized with the Phase 2 Heightened Alert aka semi lockdowns. I’m forever amazed with the names that the Government has come up with, the circuit breaker, etc.

Took the whole month trying to find the right business model, right fit and also, spending time with the kiddos and the trying to upskill my knowledge. Decided that I need to really focus on agile methodologies to focus on matters thus I signed up for the course – Certified Scrum Master by NTUC Learning Hub (RTP: S$214) as I have utilized my Skillsfuture credits, I’m glad that I’m still eligible to get an one-off subsidy from NTUC UTAP programme and only paid S$107 to attend this.

This decision was made when I am thinking hard to push forward with my Masters or just, going through the skillsets based programme. Went for the latter as I’m afraid that I couldn’t commit with my careers and kids and I believed that academic credentials is important but being “human” and humane definitely bring it to another level. πŸ™‚

Took these months to catch up on things that I couldn’t afford to do when I was in a full-time job and managing kids and finally made the efforts to declutter the house.

Check out my decluttering list via https://t.me/decluttersbylynn

Went to catch up with a few friends when Government announced Phase 3 Heightened Alert where dining for 2 has been made possible. Also went for a dinner with R at newly opened Saute Sushi at Paya Lebar Square. Love their menu and the train conveyor belt that enhanced the whole dining experience. Hopefully as people are more conscious about the health and climate change, people will swing over to a healthier and vegetarian/ vegan diet. πŸ™‚

Check out their spread and their prices are priced at an affordable pricing. πŸ™‚ Currently, no reservations can be made and we queued for 30 mins (BFF queued for 50 mins) prior to get the seats.

Honestly, hope things get better for Singapore and looking forward to better years ahead. πŸ™‚

During these 3 months, I learnt to be a better person and definitely shall not lower my standards from this moment on. πŸ™‚ Empowering mind, empowering lives.

Short Trading in Crypto

Just realised that it has been some times since I updated this space of mine. Life has been great when I took a big leap of faith to leave NTU to focus on Piggyback and the businesses, at the same time, rebuilding myself as it will soon be one year since it had happened.

I’ve been trying my best to overcome all the negative emotions and putting my energies on myself, kiddos and etc. And even crypto.

Got to admit that I still suck at short trading. The moment I sold on 30 April 2021, it mooned another 20% within the next 12 hours. LOL. Hopefully my $GRT will give me that bang for my bucks in times to come.

Looking back perhaps I need to change my strategies to do short trading. E.g instead of selling what I bought, perhaps I should sell my base value worth.

E.g. I used SGD 1,500 to buy in $GRT at 1.68 thus giving me 885 $GRT and perhaps next time I should sell $1,500 worth instead of selling 885 $GRT to get like a 20% profit margins. HAHAHA.

Just wondering if this will work. And I shall do that the next round. Let me know if you would like to share your tips in short trading. πŸ™‚

Chopstick Theory -SatoshiStreetBets

The crypto world is going cray with all the community efforts in pumping what they called, shitcoins. LOL. All thanks to the viral reddit thread by SatoshiStreetBets.

They pumped $Doge aka DogeCoin which is created based on a meme featuring a Shiba Inu?! Like what?! And it was pumped up to 900% within 24 hours. And yes, Elon Musk sent a frenzy when he puts #Bitcoin in Twitter profile. Talking about the community strengths versus the hedge fund traders. It’s definitely a stressful week for the professional traders.

I did a shift to my portfolio where I focus on Altcoins now and as I was typing this, I just liquidate $GRT that gained a 5% within 2 weeks (The shitty part, the moment I sell the coins, it got pumped another 10% more, damn). $XRP did a good game too with 20% profit for me. Not bad for a short term trade.

I’m actually quite skeptical on the way I trade. For me, I just pick 2-4 and one of it will be the main based and prayed to heavens that it’s the right choice for me. But the stress level to look see at 3-4 will drive me nuts. HAHAHA. The reddit frenzy taught me that — You can read all the whitepapers u want but trading has no logic in crypto when community traders triumphed over the technologies, just like the Chopstick Theory that my mum loves to mention when I’m younger. LOL

WHAT IS CHAINLINK $LINK?

Enough of grieving and start to be on track. Recently, there is this unknown hype for CHAINLINK $LINK that moved to Rank #5 after $XRP with a market cap of $5,611,269,745 USD. This fast rising crypto is definitely a must-watch especially during this bullish market.

Many had been asking what in exactly is $LINK? Basically it’s decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain and $LINK is a payment token in which users can use to pay for the services on this network.

I guessed this would be a good project that doubled up on the security and trust level among people using blockchain and reputable companies are using it. There is a huge potential behind all these as people start to digitize workflow and payments, moving towards a cashless world.

I would personally buy a little to accumulate some boost for near future as I believed the potential would be quite similar to Etherum. Buy a little won’t harm. πŸ™‚

Trading via Coinhako. Visit my $FOLIO page to know more.

Coinhako – My Favourite Crypto Trading Exchange Platform in Singapore.

Opinions are my own.

πŸ™‚ Just wanna share some insights.

Many had asked me to trade on all sorts of exchanges/ platforms from Binance > Coinbase > Biki and all but ever since Xfers did not continue their partnership with Coinbase. I went ahead and scouted and found a SGD pairing exchange –Β  Coinhako. But why Coinhako?

The answer is simple >
Easier to liquidate to/ via SGD and fuss-free to trade.

When I was with the Blockchain company, I used to trade via IDEX and I had to do coin swapping from IDEX then swap out to ETH/ BTC then from there cash out. During the process, I could have innocently spend unnecessary trading fees on gas/ admin and etc.

But on Coinhako, I would just need to Signup > Verify and Link up 2FA > Trade in SGD pairing > Cash out.

Supporting local companies is important and also the comfort trading in SGD.

Xfers supported up to S$5000 in the digital wallet (due to the Payment Services Act 2020) that you can link to Coinhako and trade. However if you are trading from Xfers wallet, the minimum spend is S$550 and transfer can be reflected within 5 minutes of a successful transfer.

Whereas if you trade from Coinhako wallet, minimum buy would be S$10 however depends on the $Crypto you are looking at. Deposits clearance is daily placed in at 10am/ 4pm respectively.

So in summary, good things about Coinhako:

  1. Pairing in SGD
  2. Fuss-free on the Banking & Liquidation Part (Link to SG Bank accounts/ Connect with Xfers)
  3. Local Enterprise #supportlocal with at least 5 years in this business
  4. Great Community via their Official Telegram Groupchat (It’s important to gain some quick insights if you don’t monitor the market and we HODL together.)
  5. Daily “Clock-in” Rewards when you logged into the App and Earn Points.
  6. Points can be offset for % in trading fee (normally 2-times usage of 25% off on trading fee @ 500 Coinhako Points)
  7. Refer-A-Friend and Earn-As-They-Trade
  8. Great UXUI – Price Charts and all.
  9. Once a while, they will organize some form of gatherings. Yay to free drinks~

Since the crypto market is now facing a little dip, I would take this chance to accumulate coins before BTC halving in May 2020.

Friday, 13th in $Crypto

Bloodshred

Wah, all the stocks are down and including $Crypto. I miss the Ethereum bottom at SGD$135 as I had already went in the previous days on 11 and 12 Mar respectively at SGD$259 and S$272. Goodness and not sure if Friday, 13th or the speech that Trump gave shifted the market sentiment.

I just realised he will be speaking at 3pm US Time on 13 March again which is 4am SG Time on 14 March. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I just bought in LTC. Wtf.

I thought right now is a good time to earn my pocket money, not asking donations. #HODL peeps, we will get there. BTC Halving in 2 months’ time.

Indifference.

Indifference will result in being a toxic being to self and others.

I once chanced upon this video by Ellen DeGeneres where she tried to seek help after she came out on her sitcom and everyone turned against her. She didn’t have a ring up for years yet she suppressed and won at her own depression to do her own talk show.

She says something along this line; If you feel different and depressed. Don’t worry… because:

“Things will get easier, people’s minds will change, and you should be alive to see it.”

And the above stuck in my head till now.

I decided to keep on trying. Suppressing my own demons within. There is nothing sort of giving up. Trying to find that winning formula through limited time and money but I know I will figure it, outgrown it and finally succeed.

The first thing on my mind is to create an ample runway for budget flow. Everyone have their own stories. Their debts, their commitments and there could be a way to figure something out.

I figure out mine through crypto investing and copy trading (forex trading). I learnt and made a lot of friends through this. And just kept on moving, to grow the pie. It’s a long tedious process but I made it happened. I had never thought I would grow from a Teletext-reader for my dad to a leisure trader/ investor myself.

No one ever thought I would one day become a Semi-SAHM and work from home and created a work-from-home empire. No one. So the key… Taking risks sometimes will lead you to surprises and perhaps, one will get to enjoy the whole process. πŸ˜‰

Crypto Winter, Again.

The crypto charts had been volatile over the past few days, weeks and months. Looking at the 90-days chart kind of emphasized my need and vision to be investment savvy to place the eggs into the various baskets and not just to one crypto investing.

Also, across the spectrum, I had also trade not just one but at least 2 coins to minimize the loss and importantly, ensure that I don’t get overly-heartbroken. You can check out my pots via my $FOLIO.

I believed it will take some time for it to spike back especially $Bitcoin rewards halving will happen in May 2020. It would be an exciting period for all the crypto investors.

To me, crypto investment is more of a savings plan. One must be able to overcome its psychologically and mental aspects to HODL and not liquidate at small chances unless you are talking at a small fraction of what you trade. Sometimes I do that (to finance daily needs) too but I try not to do that frequent.

It’s mentally draining and also, not wise not a long-term trader.

I set a threshold of my losses and also, a timeframe to give it to rise otherwise, I will liquidate at the next possible chance. πŸ˜‰

Trading is not also a one-off thing but it on another hand, I am those who do a lot of homework to these tradings because I need to know what I’m buying and I will try to envision a long term perspective.

OPINION: China’s role as the leading blockchain-powered Nation.

Opinions are my own.Β 

On 25th October, $BTC spiked and major uptrends can be seen for some anchoring coins perhaps largely due to the #FOMO mentality as President Xi announced that China should seize the opportunity of blockchain, egging on to be at the forefront of the race.

And everyone in the industry knew for the fact that cryptocurrency is banned in China however cryptocurrencies are strongly backed by blockchain technologies. It’s somehow linked as majority of the successful decentralized applications (DApps) are either found in China or US.

It’s a good breakthrough as it meant that more companies, especially the major corporations would explore the usage of blockchain technologies as many are afraid to take that bold step when the blockchain technologies are mostly in their infant stages.

At this present time, there is still a lack of successful use-cases to validate. With support from key leaders, the key of confidence is then injected and definitely, a boost is seen.

The future is hopeful, at least with the current factors and the boost. πŸ™‚

Volatility on Cryptocurrency

Okay, for the past 30 days, major cryptocurrencies had faced a “pump-and-dump” pattern, for leisure traders like me, it granted us opportunities to enter the market and flushed out disruptive traders and for new “whales” to be granted of their position.

However on the good sight, the volatility only fluctuates within a stipulated zone meaning to say it is for the trading to gain support and this support will be a base for further movements, normally upwards.

BTC [Month for Sept – Oct]
Not sure if this is a deja-vu that prior to the bull run 2 years back. Same trades patterns were seen. πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait especially Bitcoin is halving in May 2020.

I wonder if it’s a psychological effect that it will boost the price or rather it’s downright to the supply and demands where the Governments are slowly accepting bitcoin as a form of payments/ usage.

Not sure if the volatility is something that the Governments or the Future of Work would want to deal with. Should I even consider to shift my investments to Copytrading? Argh.

The inner demons are making their ways in. And I do know that if one is looking at short terms gains, one should consider Copytrading/ Forex and not Crypto.
