Hello Everyone

I am not too sure if this is the correct place to ask but besides me being a Crypto Currency investor, I have done some research on Crypto Currencies and blockchain technologies and I think it is an amazing revolutionary with so much potential !

I would like to upskill and train in these kind of technologies and I was wondering if anyone have some links to materials or labs or even a certification program where an IT professional like me could learn?

I would ultimately like to become an implementer of Blockchain / Crypto Currencies into organisations etc once I have made something great !

For an example Microsoft has a range of awesome products however Microsoft don't go out there and implement these into organisations, rather there are organisations who specialises in the Microsoft technologies whom implement these technologies into corporations, I want to be one of those implementers.

Does anyone have any useful tips/guidances?

Cheers,

DD

Sorry. I have zero interest in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies and zero reason to research them.

Thanks!!

So, i have been digging mostly on material, learning about it, I even looked into launch my own cryptocurrency. The way I see it today, most companies views on crypto currencies are not sustainable enough. Enterprises more interested in the block chain technology. You can find a lot of books about it even seminars, I just don't believe they are at the point where there is credible institute to provide certificates in it. I would recommend do research and publish papers , it will gain you the amount on credibility.

Hi idrownfish,

The only idea I have about this is that it deals with the digitized cryptocurrency transactions and now being used by many business organisations to maintain transparency of overall transactions.

Buffett bashes bitcoin as thriving on mystique | CBC News

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett on Monday said buyers of bitcoin, which he has characterized as "rat poison squared," thrive on the hope they'll find other people who will pay more for it.

Likening bitcoin demand to the tulip bulb mania in 17th century Netherlands, Buffett, the chairman and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, said the mystique behind the cryptocurrency has caused its price to surge.

"If you don't understand it, you get much more excited," Buffett said on CNBC television. "People like to speculate, they like to gamble."

He said investors now are much better off owning U.S. stocks, whose prices are elevated but not in a "bubble," and it would take a "nanosecond" for him to choose stocks over 10- or 30-year U.S. government bonds now yielding around 3 percent.

Charlie Munger, Buffett's longtime business partner and a Berkshire vice chairman, is also no bitcoin fan, describing it as "worthless artificial gold." He likened it to Oscar Wilde's definition of fox hunting, calling it "the pursuit of the uneatable by the unspeakable."

Don't listen to those who tell you "just hodllll!!!", because it is better to get rich slow than to get broke fast. You should fix a certain % of profit, and as soon as you hit, just pull it off, put it in USDT if you are comfortable or just keep it in FIAT and wait for the next trade. That's how you have better chances of winning in the world of cryptocurrencies trading :)

In my eyes, its gambling in the same way that playing the stock market is. Difference being, stock prices are based on some form of perceived market value - cryptocurrency value is based on popularity and potential popularity.

Anyway you play it, it's still really just another form of gambling in my opinion.
For most people, it is gambling, because they don't bother to read the fundamental and technical aspects of trading. Sure, it is far more unpredictable than other ways of making money, but if you set a fixed % of profit, take care of making technical analysis and taking the fundamentals into account (the team, purpose, upcoming updates, etc.), then you will have higher chances of succeeding in the Wild World of Cryptocurrencies)
