Yo fam, Imma share how I stacked my first 5 grand with Bitcoin. It’s not some pro trader story, but it might be worth a quick scroll 🤷♂️.
So, back in 2020, I decided to turn my cash into Bitcoin ’cause the currency in my country was tanking hard 📉. I started chucking my money into a $BTC wallet without knowing much about crypto. Wasn’t a smooth ride, had to be disciplined and stay hopeful about what’s to come, but yeah, I was also stressed about losing it all.
Bitcoin was floating between $4000~ $7k then, and I managed to hoard some, worth around $620 – the most I’d ever saved up. I kept it lowkey, nobody knew about my little investment. There were times when selling it all was tempting, but something kept me from doing that.
Stacking that first $5K was the dream 🌌. I had my doubts, but I also knew anything’s possible. So, I HODLed for about 10 months. 2021 kicked in, and Bitcoin started skyrocketing to $29,000 🚀! My investments touched $2100, and I was losing it – never saw that much money before. But, the goal was $5k, right? So, I kept my chill and didn’t sell.
A few more months, Bitcoin hit $35,000, and my investments were at $3500 🌟. It crossed my mind to sell, but nah, I didn’t. Then, life happened, my phone broke, and after sorting it, I got a ring from my cousin. He’s been saving in Bitcoin too and dropped that Bitcoin was at $52,000 now! 🤯 I didn’t buy it until I checked my account. And there it was, my investment was at $5190! 🥳 Best. Day. Ever.
So, what’s the takeaway from my journey? 🤔
