INTERVIEW WITH: SHILL GATES
By Mounia Rabhi
The Crypto Freak Community introduces a new segment in the list of topics, the VIP-Crypto Community Interview. Our very first interviewee makes the real Bill Gates look like a chump for not having the same foresight, knowledge and audacity this guy has shown to have – Enjoy!
Tell me a little bit about you, who is Shill Gates?
I’m just a regular lower middle class kid from the streets. I’ve always been really book smart and street smart and have an affinity for learning new things.
When did you get into Crypto? And what was your reason to start investing into Crypto?
I got in by accident. A friend told me about Bitcoin a few years back and I was really into a lot of conspiracies and thinking that the dollar was going to collapse, so I with a bit under $1000. I’ve since evolved on this theory, but I’m glad it brought me to Crypto.
How did trading Crypto effect your life?
It’s taught me a lot about myself, it’s also given me a way to make money 24/7. I think the latter is most important, because I’m free to work from anywhere in the world, so long as I have internet.
What is your favourite trading strategy?
Scalp trading. It’s where you look at the smaller timeframes and take very small percentages in very short amounts of time (1–3%) that add up over time. I’ve also just started margin trading and I’m already hooked. Both of these are the most adrenaline pumping methods of trading and they fit my personality.
How much time do you spend charting daily?
Too long lol. Hours, really. I’ve honestly never really thought about it. I think that’s why I use custom colours on my charts. If I’m going to be staring at them this long, they better look good.
What is your favourite long term hold and why?
Cardano (ADA). I think most people would agree. It’s just been really strong over time and as long as the team can deliver, I think it will reward all those who invested.
What is your main focus at this moment within Crypto?
Trading and managing my brand. My mission is to teach others what I’ve learned over the years as well as push the space forward by working with as many companies as possible.
Tips for someone who wants to start trading?
Study like crazy. Also, work on paper trading. Paper trading is where you write down your entry and exit points without really trading money, so you can get a feel for how you would have performed. It’s great practice and costs nothing.
Describe your best moment in Crypto?
This winter when everything went crazy. I honestly didn’t sell as much as I should have, but you live and you learn. It was like Christmas every day.
What is your best advice to new people into Crypto?
Don’t get greedy. Take profits every chance you get. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, as long as you learn from them.
Do you want to add anything?
Just want to thank you for all you do for this community. You’ve been so kind to me and many others and the space is lucky to have you. We need more people like you in the world.
