The Currency of Crypto

I began my journey into the crypto currency world in 2017. I heard about it back in 2013, when it was $40, but I did not get involved. Though it was interesting, I didn’t feel like I had the time to get involved and learn about it.

In 2017 I began to see finance and currency a little differently. My relationship with money had been shifting from a poverty mindset, full of lack and fear…To a mindset that money is a direct representation of our personal level of trust in the abundance that the universe has waiting for us. I say waiting because everything we can imagine already exists and is simply waiting for us to tune in to the frequency of receiving it!

New Dawn

I had to really study the blockchain technology to help me feel more comfortable when setting up my first wallet or making my first purchase, or trade!

After I realized that this was a technology shift, and it was simply in the beginning stages… I began to pay more attention and feel more comfortable. I always tell my students the more you do something the easier it gets. So I created a few wallets, and purchased tokens on exchanges. These experiences really helped me to feel empowered, as I began to take back my financial sovereignty.

I truly see blockchain technology as the beginning of a new dawn. A new era in the digital and financial pillars of our time. I find it super important to also mention that the astrology of these times is one of a great financial shift.

When I realized this is a change in the structures as we know it, I dived right in to learning about this new technology. Even with the anxiety, I knew I just needed to push through and keep going.

FOMO and Anxiety

My first trade was nerve racking… do I trade now or wait for the price to go down!? What happens if I buy it now and the prices does go down!?

The first time I sent money to another wallet caused even more anxiety. What if I put the address in wrong? The coins could end up in some random wallet!

What if I lose my private key, or my private passcode? What if the app gets uninstalled or something and I can’t recover my wallet or coins?

All of these questions flooded my mind in the beginning. But the more I worked with the technology and understood how to store my information, and how to double check my work the easier it got.

The Fear Of Missing Out is totally normal at first. We have been so programmed to FEAR not having enough. Programed to keep what we have “safe.” But when the world is seen as a place of abundance, you always have enough. When we hold on to something it becomes stagnant and no longer flowing with energy. Currency is meant to flow. The current gives and takes. Now when I trade or send currency, that anxious feeling doesn’t overwhelm me…. It simply helps to remind me to slow down and be mindful.

A little goes a long way

My investment strategy has been to simply buy in. There is no need to have large sums of money before one invests. Since it is a matter of long term financial revolution… its about more than just a get rich quick strategy. This is a technology adoption, there are going to be major players in the game who will get involved to build the foundation. Like any adoption plan, there are stages… and we are in the early stages of adoption.

I have had exponential growth over the past 5 years with this awareness. My partner has spot on analysis of the market and the shift. He has researched and aligned so many data points along the way, which have assisted us in the selection of where to allocate funds.

Knowing that the universe is aligned with me has allowed me to let go of the FOMO and the poverty mindset. I have been able to overcome those programs to shift my mindset towards the flow of currency in my life.

Alignment

Currency

Aligning your mindset with one of receptivity, allows the universe to show up in the most improbable ways! We begin to allow things to unfold, rather than create resistance to receiving by putting limitations on what we wish to receive. Sometimes when we think we want one thing, it’s really just a step in the direction of the true desires we have. But sometimes we do not know that desire even exists until something else shows it to us.

Action rewards truth… when we take action on our truths the universe rewards us. When we push through even when we feel unsure, we are choosing to manifest our true desires.

Financial Service Innovation

The other day I went to PNC bank to make a wire transfer*.

This blog is about my experience and how it relates to technology innovation.

First off, I had to take off of work early to get to PNC before they closed at 4pm.  The closest branch was about 5 miles away. Once I arrived at the bank I met with an associate who assisted me in the process.

The visit took a total of 30 mins or so, from the time I sat down to the time I left the building.  To begin, I had to have the account and routing number of the bank the transfer was going to, as well as the person’s name and address. The associate input the information and had me visually and verbally verify that it was typed correctly.  He then printed out the information receipt, which was 2 pages stapled together, and had me read over the printed receipt to check once more.

The transaction also has a fee of $30 for an outgoing domestic transfer.

It takes about 2 hours for the transfer to be sent and arrive in the recipient’s account.

I mention all of this, because time and energy are currency.

All of this affirms the importance of blockchain technology education, so we might learn and know how to manage our finances for ourselves!

To be financially stable and secure is something we work for our whole lives.  A lot of times people find their stability in the forms of entities outside themselves, and this happens for many reasons; whether it’s time, energy, money, or the lack thereof. If you are not interested in learning to use it yourself, you should at least be aware of its implications and talk to someone who might be able to assist you in diversifying your investments and take back control of your funds.

So, lets say this transaction was performed using blockchain technology.

The amount of time, energy and currency needed to fully complete the task would be far less than 30 mins; that’s if both parties had all accounts set up and active. 

A blockchain transaction could look one of two ways:

  1. Recipient requests funds from their wallet to your wallet address which you have provided to them. Sender then confirms transaction to transfer funds.
  2. Sender acquires recipients wallet address, logs into their wallet and sends funds to the recipients wallet address.

These two types of transactions cost no more than $10, and the average transaction time is .65 seconds.

As I sat in the bank, I realized how much currency I could save to refocus into things I have a passion to do, like painting or doing henna.

So, later that day I was using my PNC mobile account and I noticed that I could transfer money via Zelle.  I created an account and transferred some funds, when I realized… ITS ALREADY HERE.  Zelle is basically blockchain technology, with a user friend interface, and regulated by PNC. The downfall is that there is a limit to how much money you can send in a transaction depending on your account type.

I realize now how important it is to share my experiences and learning with my community.  Time is currency! Begin learning more about what’s changing with our financial system, and blockchain technology here, or contact me to talk!

 

*wire transfers are necessary when your bank has a limit on how much you can transfer, and usually for larger amounts.
