Do you invest in anything other than cryptocurrency?

I have invested a little in stocks and would like to invest in real estate.

How often do you check the price?

Once a week

What have been your best and worst cryptocurrency investments?

I have stuck predominately with BTC investment and have been HODLing since I started with cryptocurrency investing. So I am still waiting to find out whether it was my best or worst investment.

Have you ever paid for anything with crypto?

Not yet, but I am really looking forward to the day it is more widely accepted as a payment form in everyday commerce.

What is your favourite thing to spend money on?

Travel is certainly number one but I do also enjoy spending my money on fashion. 

iPhone or Android?

iPhone due to it’s sleekness and simplicity. Although I think I am stuck in the Apple Ecosystem.

Favourite tech gadget?

My bluetooth speaker. I need music playing 24/7. 

What finance apps do you currently use?

My banking apps, Beem It and Alipay.

Do you have any advice for people who want to start in cryptocurrency?

I would say when it comes to investing the best thing to do is make sure you have done adequate research so that if things were to go sour at least you can look back on the circumstances and know that you did everything in your control to achieve the best outcome.

Also, don’t underestimate the power of your network and ask questions to those around you who have more knowledge on specific topics.
