Crypto changed my life

First off, this isn’t another “I put in 10$ in bitcoin in 2010 and bought a house today” thread.Crypto has changed my life in a completely different way…it has made me hungry for knowledge. Cyber, networking, blockchain knowledge.I use to find myself sitting at my computer desk reading random articles from random websites about every single random blockchain that caught my attention. I would invest in a project…. make a little money, then switch to another project… lose a little money.I’m not going to lie…I don’t have what it takes to be a day trader…lesson learned.However, I kept finding myself hungry for more knowledge. I wanted to know everything about everything.Finally, one day I was staring at my computer….basically broke and feeling slightly depressed due to a downturn in the market….and decided to do something about it. My old ass went back to school.Now I’m proud to say, 4 years later, I have recently finished my Bachelors in Cyber Security, Comptia Sec+ and A+ certs and I even finished up my Associates from when I was 18 and dropped out my final semester. Dumb…I know. But I personally know I would have never decided to take this path without crypto influencing me.Next time you find yourself staring at coinmarketcap and the price of your coins, try to find what aspects of these coins excite you (other than the lambos) THEN GO LEARN. See if this is your passion. You don’t even have to go to college. You can find hundreds of learning resources online. Go better yourself and help this community grow.If crypto somehow implodes tomorrow, will you have anything to show for all the time you have spent staring at your computer/phone screen? Or will it all be screenshots, memories, and what could have beens?
