NFT News, 12.06.2022

The crypto and NFT markets are still in a downturn. It is easy to report great news when prices only know their way up. And seeing any portfolio shrink in value is painful. No matter if you own stocks or crypto.

I learned the hard way in 2017 / 2018 how easy it is to gain a lot in the crypto market and lose a lot. This lesson taught me that I only invest what I can afford to lose. But also what I can keep without the urge to sell for liquidity. So I stay calm, and there will be sun again after the rain. When? Nobody knows.

I will be traveling for the next two weeks (if you want to see some travel spam from tomorrow on: https://www.instagram.com/alker/ )

First, I will be at MET AMS. If you are there, give me a sign. I will be on stage as well: https://met-ams.xyz/#section-2

Right after Amsterdam, I will fly to New York for NFT.NYC. 15.000 NFT nerds will be there.

I hope to meet many new people during the next two weeks and share my impressions along the way.
