Rudyard Kipling, most famous for writing Jungle Book, is also a well renowned poet. My favorite Kipling poem is “If”. For almost every moment in life, there’s a relevant line in “If”. Turns out there’s a line for almost everything you need to know in Crypto:
If you can keep your head when all about you, Are losing theirs and blaming it on you — HODL
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too — Ignore Jamie Dimon, but realize there are definitely some scams around
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting — Satoshi’s White Paper was written in 2008. Gotta play the long game
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies — Call the lies out like Vitalik calling out Craig Wright
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating — Not hating the haters was a Crypto New Years Resolution of mine
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise — Sometimes people in Crypto take this too literally, like Moe Levin and the BTC Miami fiasco
If you can dream — and not make dreams your master — Building a Crypto utopia in Puerto Rico is a great dream, but they’re not just dreaming, they’re doing
If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim — All the great Medium Crypto bloggers who are also great operators.
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, And treat those two impostors just the same —Crypto goes up, crypto goes down.
