I am Lam, 34 years old, father of 2 children and I am the co-founder of DCI. I have been in crypto since 2017 and learn new things about it every day.
What led you in Cryptocurrency?
I heard people around me talk about cryptocurrency constantly. It got me curious so I decided to make my first move to buy Bitcoin for around 1200 euro. I wasn’t serious in the beginning about what it had to offer. Since bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies moved a lot (to the moon),
I was lost because I didn’t understand why people wanted to invest in a coin that already went up like 300%. I did more research and became very enthusiastic about the blockchain and its capabilities. I decided to invest more fiat money into it and became active member of the crypto community to learn more. The community helped me a lot, i gained a lot of insights about the crypto world which attracted me to do something for my fellow traders/crypto buddies.
How does your typical day look like?
So in the beginning when I just got into crypto, the first thing I do when I wake up is check my DCI Discord to see if any interesting info can be found, then I check the DCI Telegram. When I am on the way to work, I quickly look at Blockfolio to see what the status is. However, I do those things a lot less now. I must say that I have become more of a HODLer, as I have less time to trade. But I’m always on the look out for new partnerships and opportunities for DCI.
What’s your crypto setup?
I currently only use Telegram and Discord for communication. And when I start trading I only use Binance, the native Binance app works smoothly. I used to work a lot with Bittrex but nowadays I do everything at Binance.
Which project do you believe in?
Security is of great importance in the crypto world. This applies to digital currencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin or Nano as well as smart contract platforms such as Ethereum or Cardano. And just for the latter, Quantstamp wants to add value.
Quantstamp has a currency (QSP) that is used as a reward for finding security risks in smart contract code. Security experts thus receive QSP for writing code that can detect security risks and leaks.
You can imagine that security and good, clean code is extremely important in the case of smart contracts. There is no middle man present with these contracts so they must in principle be watertight.
A smart contract is also on the blockchain and therefore can not be changed. This is a very different method than usual in the developers world, where often a lot of patched after code is already ‘relapse’.
Smart contracts therefore require a different mindset and Quanstamp is a very interesting approach to solving the security risk that smart contracts carry with them.
Any advice you want to give other crypto investors?
My advice is to have patience, I have lost a lot of money because I was impatient. I know it is difficult, but in the long run you get more out of it. Never look backwards, there will always be opportunities and be happy with your profits.
Anything you want to promote or plug?
I have nothing special that what I want to promote. I would like to take a look at the fact that we have been around for more than 7 months now and if we look back from the point where we started and where we are now, it’s safe to say we have grown enormously as a community we can all be proud of. I look forward to the upcoming period where we are going with the community. I hope we will just make a big run like last year.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, join DCI!
