Ledger Nano X - The secure hardware wallet

It was July 2012, and my company, after almost a year of gradual decline in activity, was taking its last breaths. I decided to go to Germany and book some accommodation with Airbnb; my future host asked me to pay in Bitcoin and I honestly didn’t know what it was, so I started looking for information on the internet and came across some platforms among which I decided to try WWW.LOCALBITCOINS.COM. I easily opened an account and bought the equivalent of 75 euros at that time, I paid a few euros to Airbnb and eventually I just forgot that I had this account with some remaining money.

Ledger Nano X - The secure hardware wallet

After 7 years outside my country, now in England, I decided to start investing some money for my retirement with pension plans, investments in the stock markets and cryptocurrency, and it was then that I remembered that I already had my localbitcoins.com account. I managed to recover the account and access to it, and the surprise was great: I bought 6.81 bitcoins in 2012 and paid 5 bitcoins for my accommodation and 1.5 bitcoins for an antivirus product for my mobile, so I had 0.31 bitcoins left in my account, but now a bitcoin did cost about $ 3,000 (December 2018), and my 0.31 bitcoins were more than $ 1,000 !!!. My first words were: “… damn antivirus …” you can imagine why.

I will tell you more about my “adventure” with cryptocurrencies in the following weeks, some steps that you can reproduce yourself every week, because all the crypto platforms I have been using are still active today and they have proven to be legal, reliable and oriented to give good customer service.

Of course, every investment has its risks, and if you have a pension plan today, just go to see the valuation during the time of COVID to panic, but with cautiousness, research and also some sagacity, the world of the cryptocurrency can help you to save in the long term, invest in the short or long term, buy and sell when prices vary, …, in short, a whole world of possibilities I will try to expose, so you can take advantage of it if you decide to come into this exciting world. Any help you may need, just leave a comment in the website – Erith.club – going into one of the articles and scrolling the page full down.
