20211014_181440_0000.png

For those who might not watch the video(Although I really recommend you to watch it)below is a description,i hope you enjoy reading.

In the video uploaded to @threespeak above, I explained how my crypto journey began. why i tagged it sweet then bitter then sweet again
Like every other Nigerian we had the fear of missing out all over our faces, there were cliches such as "If you don't own any crypto or bitcoin then your futures isn't assured"
This didn't trigger me as all I wanted was a free ride and free raindrop, afterall that's why I had a trust wallet in the first place. And yes my Freebie day came and it was Huge!

Uniswap Magical Money Was the trigger!!!

Yes, as many people that follow me know my love chess and how I play a lot and it's actually so romantic that chess connected my crypto dots.

There was a tournament organised by the chess online Nigeria (CNO) in which unlike the normal naira reward, we were to be paid in Chess token!. I was like

Nawa ooo,which kin tin be dis. Me wey need money urgently

For the love of the game,I played the tournament and I finished second and after
Submitting my erc20 address I got some chess coin about (25,000) worth about 18k in Naira.

I had a friend sell it for me on phone as I didn't know how to go about it via the uniswap trade index. And boom! That how I qualified for the huge, magical 400Uni Airdrop that happened in September.

My phone rang one morning, it was a friend who asked "Did you use uniswap to trade your chess coin" I replied yes and he asked for my wallet details and recovery. At that point I didn't bother because I was sure I had nothing there. But lo and behold he sent me 200k in naira (he actually got more) and I was stunned and happy , then I didn't even realized I was cheated. I was grateful.

Bitter-Sweet

My curiosity increased and at that same rate my money decreased,I ended up with so many bad trades and alas I had to withdraw some vex money to survive. I learnt from there and started getting better in my risk taking.

Hive To the rescue
