A foodie who made investments in Ethereum tokens

Welcome to Crypto in Conversation, where we’re de-bunking the how, why and what of crypto investments. We’ve asked crypto fanatics about their cryptocurrency, trading advice, trading pitfalls and their favourite tech gadgets.










The details

Provide a breakdown of your cryptocurrency portfolio

50% BTC, 20% ETH and 20% XRP and 10% Ethereum tokens

Do you invest in anything other than cryptocurrency?

I have investments in property and shares.

How often do you check the price?


What have been your best and worst cryptocurrency investments?

I was able to sell some of my BTC at its peak which proved to be quite profitable. However, my worst investments would be some of the few Ethereum tokens I have purchased.

Have you ever paid for anything with crypto?

Yes, I have been able to buy some subscription services (my VPN for example) and some things in the store with my CoinJar Swipe.

What is your favourite thing to spend money on?

Food! I consider myself a huge foodie and love trying out new restaurants.

iPhone or Android?

iPhone for sure. It is easy to use and I really like the camera.

Favourite tech gadget?

It might sound a little odd but my favourite gadget is my electric kettle I can control with my iPhone. I drink a lot of tea and being able to control the temperature of the water is great.

What finance apps do you currently use?

Mainly just the app from my bank and CoinJar.

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

Watch YouTube videos. I have found YouTube to be a great resource for information. But make sure you don’t just listen to one opinion but rather a lot of opinions from people in the space.
