I wonder if sticking to my convictions will pay off. At present it seems to be putting me in a variety of extremely precarious positions. I get frequently attacked by powerful people in the media, ICO, cryptocurrency and venture industry. I didn't think I'd have a suite of such enemies by 25.
@nic Stick to your principles, it's easy to go with the crowd. Nothing stays the same in life, so change is always possible further down the line. Meanwhile, don't quit you will prevail 👍
@nic Nah keep doing it :p
@nic I see. How do you feel about thanks for the support guys. maybe I should stop using this mastodon instance as my personal therapist :D?
@nic Nooooo. That's good content. Plus, it lets us know we're not alone :)
@nic You don’t need to be shamed and you don’t need to prevail. Stay with your principles and don’t let any of it be personal — because it’s not.
Just my 2¢
I can't think of a better compliment then being trashed by ICO charlatans.
Even Ver hasn't ICOd anything yet
People will be attracted or repulsed by whatever you do, so you might as well be yourself.
If they don't criticize you, they don't rate you. If they attack you, they are afraid of you.
I wish I could've been so lucky at only 25.
There is also much power and freedom in just not giving a fuck what people say. Own it.
@nic Not doing it pay off if you play it smart. At the end of the day doesn't matter what others think or say about you. If you're happy about your principles and your actions, it's all fine
Keep going. Your taking all the flak because you are precisely over the target.
@nic Bitcoin exists because there is, and always has been money to be made on the backs of others. Ignorance is key to this arrangement. I got your back!
@nic If your conviction happen to be right it will pay off. If you are wrong and we end up in a multicoin/multichain dystopia, the situation is so bad that as far as I am concerned the reputation is the last problem
@nic you also have friends
