Investing has always been a passion of mine. I started,
aged 19, when I bought my first stock in Vestas. Oh what a day… Soon after that I got an ok paying job as a pizza delivery man which helped sustain me through college and pay for my hobbies. Little did I know that in 7 years I was to turn that one Vestas stock into a nice little portfolio worth around 40K dollars.
Early 2014 I made a fool’s mistake. I stopped thinking like an investor and started thinking like a speculator. I sold all my stock holdings and put all my money into forex. With a 500:1 leverage that seemed like a great deal. Six months later I was penniless and 10k in debt
. Forex gave me a God complex. It made me greedy and impatient. I was taking greater risks than I could afford. And so I lost it all…
In June 2014 I discovered NXT. It was still quite raw at the time and the first assets were just being launched. I saw it as an altcoin at first and struggled to understand what the hype was about. I didn’t see it. So I
redirected my attention to other coins and started trading. Again, I was speculating and again I got burned. A few months later I saw an article about NXT on some random webpage and I suddenly remembered I had seen this before. So I started researching. I came across the nxtforum and saw the beautiful community that had grown from a simple concept. I started reading about the developments, projects and assets and only then did I realize that NXT was not some new shitty altcoin, but rather a platform; a platform to great things. The possibilities were endless and the projects, those already launched and those still in development, have really got me stoked up.
It was then that I knew that this is the place to be. Too many times I have relied on old fashioned instruments like stocks and bonds, which never had the level of transparency that I desired. I hope NXT will solve that for me, and I believe it will. I am technologically handicapped and don’t understand a single string of code, but what I learned throughout my investing years is to spot a good deal and take it. I see NXT from a financial point of view, and I realize that all the private ventures on this platform have huge potential to change the way we now think about the world
, as well as bring a nice income on the side. NXT became real, tangible, something I want to be a part of.
At the time I’m writing this I’m 5000 USD in debt, but still hoping for a better future.
I recently purchased my first assets of about 3000 NXT in value. I know it’s not much, but it’s a start. It’s my way of showing faith. I want to put my money where my mouth is, even if that’s only 60 dollars to begin with. In the following weeks and months I will slowly start to acquire more and more of these assets, and I hope that by February next year I will be able to pay off my 5000 dollar debt and really get into NXT.
For all those that read this article, and to the members of the community and forum I send out a giant THANK YOU for opening a new world for me.
