I am Sudhir Khatwani; an IT bank professional turned into a cryptocurrency and blockchain proponent from Pune, India. My Bitcoin & blockchain journey started in the first quarter of 2016 when I was working for a banking client of an IT MNC in India.
Every day at my office, I heard people talking about how they could make money from cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. But at that time, I didn’t know what the heck Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies were!
Like most people, I got to know about Bitcoin from a friend. At first, I ignored him and didn’t pay that much attention (mostly because I thought it was some sort of Ponzi scheme).
A few weeks later, I heard the Bitcoin noise again in my office. My same friend approached me to invest in a Bitcoin-like cryptocurrency (Swiscoin – which was an obvious scam).
Thankfully, I didn’t invest, but I did do some research on this coin.
Also, I decided to continue pursuing my research after office hours and tried hard to convince myself that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are fake and scammy. But now as you are reading this obviously mean that I failed to convince myself that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies were fake.
Since then I have glued to it.
What followed after that is obvious now: I quit my job and joined a crypto blog as a writer cum editor in June 2017 and worked there till October 2018.
I have also invested in many cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, NEO, Monero, etc. to name a few.
Have also read quite a few books on crypto and monetary history. Some of those books are Mastering Bitcoin, Blockchain Revolution, and Guide to Gold & Silver by Mike Maloney who is the best monetary scientist I have come across so far.
Though I left my last writing job, I continue to remain actively involved in the cryptosphere in my capacity. And I am doing my bit through TheMoneyMongers where I have determined to bring atleast 1000 people in crypto this year !!
So that’s all about me and my crypto story.
Tell me what’s yours?
