Starting the year and thinking about securing my investments
Hello dear STEEMIT community, around here reappearing after taking a couple of days away from everything, it was good to do it because the mind clears up a little and comes with renewed energy, ready to continue sharing content with all those who read me. I hope you all had a great end of the year and this one we are starting comes with new expectations, new challenges and great successes.
I am starting the year with big, big goals, and I will be achieving them in an organized way, without despair, digesting each one of them, and with all the intention of advancing regardless of how hard this year may come.
I will continue betting on the growth of crypto-world, but in a very organized, thought out and planned way. We are starting the year with a big increase in the price of Bitcoin, for those of us who have been able to gather even a little bit we know that the benefits have been good, what we don't know is how long it will continue to advance?
Today, talking to some friends who had a good investment in Bitcoin through a company called Mirror Trading International (MTI), they gave me the sad news that they were swindled and this company with more than 21,000 BTC left... more than 600 million dollars at the current price, this seemed very bad to me, really bad. These are the things that make many people stay away from investing in Cryptocurrencies.
After more than a year of perfect operation, time in which users had access to their earnings, but not to their funds. They could withdraw daily if they wished, if no inconvenience arose, the least that is expected is that such a situation would occur. Much less with a registered company, with everything I read. But it did happen.
There is no doubt that there is a lot to mature in terms of investments in cryptocurrencies. Basically, this company that I mentioned to you, what it did was basically to use the funds provided to it to make trading, it had a good organization and distribution of the profits, however, the funds were not at the hand of the investors, I know that this is the way this works, in order to make trading or any investor the funds must leave your management, and this could scare in a certain way, it is a little risky, always is all investment.
This led me to think about several things, which I want to highlight here:
- Smart contracts: With DeFi it has become evident how important these contracts can be for one to keep "safe" and with us our funds, while making an investment. Generate cash flow in any project DeFi allows you to have control, and withdraw your capital when you want. It is a great point in favor, really.
- Wallet de Steemit: This is a great example of how we can keep our funds safe, as long as we have a good handle on our keys, if we make a delegation at any time to any account we could withdraw it and have our voting power back in a few days, which in the end is our capital.
This wallet gives us the option of saving, plus we have several days to withdraw it, which gives us a higher level of security.
There is a great problem in human beings, we almost always want more for less, in good measure this is true for everyone, investing in this platform must be seen as a medium and long term plan, which will allow us to constantly see an increase in our voting power which in turn translates into greater profits.
Although the monthly or annual return is little in comparison to other projects, we must weigh the level of security we have, don't you see it that way?
I'd like to read what you think about it.
Thank you very much for reading me.
