Continuous decision

With investment emotion is a big factor. It is important to be honest to yourself. Are you an emotional person when it comes to investments? Are you quick to be drawn into a FOMO? Are you likely to have a panic sell when prices drop? Have you done impulse purchases in the past?

When your answer is yes to most of the above, it is best to steer away from the temptation of emotion impacted investment.

I have done so by locking most of my investments and making them difficult to touch. Instead of trading, I put a significant part of my holdings in the hands of transparent and compliant professional traders like CITYUPTAKE and soon also accompanied by PYNK. These are taking care of my funds while generating a nice passive income. With that passive income, I can choose to re-invest or to use it for more risky investments.

Besides CITYUPTAKE and PYNK also nice opportunities are opening up at Cardano, which is soon to be ready for staking as well.

So the monthly decision is now, what to do with my investable money? Crypto or stock? CITYUPTAKE or PYNK?

In the end I know that as long as I am not trying to trade myself, the return on my investment will be good whatever decision I take.

Pynk

On the lookout for new ways to build #passiveincome in order to fund my #earlyretirement, I came across Pynk.

Pynk is still a Beta version of an investment platform. Their platform is looking for two type of investors:

  1. Time investors
  2. Cash investors

Time investors

The time investors can invest their time into the platform to make predictions on the value of Bitcoin or they can do a forecast on different type of commodities.

By participating in the platform you can get crowd points, which you can use a collateral for earning wisdom point. For logging in you receive points, for answering forecasting question you receive points, but once you forget to log in for a day some points are deducted.

The accuracy of your daily prediction will than define the exchange ratio of your crowd points into wisdom points. The more points you bet and the closer your prediction is to the reality the more wisdom points you earn.

Than once per quarter your wisdom points are converted to Pynk points, which serve as shares in the Pynk investment fund and with that you will get your share in the profits from the Pynk investment fund.

If you can achieve a top 20 result at the end of the month, you can get an additional USDC reward.

The data provided by the time investors are fueling the artificial intelligence, which is a big part of the trade input process.

Cash investors

Soon you will also be able to purchase Pynk points to fund the investment portfolio and to have Pynk to work with your money to earn more. Of course a portion of this profit will be shared with the “time investors”

At this moment I am a “time investor” but as soon as it is possible I will become a cash investor as well with the purpose to achieve my #111Months challenge an retire at the age of 55!

#111 Months

In January, I started the #111Months program, to try to be in a position for early retirement in 111 Months.

111 Months

After 5 months I have achieved a blended 4,3% of the final target (helped by the small surge in value of crypto-currency.

The goal is to acquire enough wealth combined with Passive income to be able to retire at the age of 55 (111 months from start) and be able to survive by means of passive income, without eating up the wealth.

The approach is:

  • Pay back existing loans, decreasing negative wealth and having more spendable income to build up wealth.
  • Maintain position in Brewdog shares
  • Maintain and slightly increase position in Crypto
  • Reinvest weekly CITYUPTAKE rewards to increase further passive income
  • Build a position in dividend paying shares.

Besides being able to retire after 111 months, the ambition is to have a solid social media presence by that time as well, so I can retire in my home office and can do investment management, while engaging in the crypto social media. The two chosen channels are:

  • Twitter
  • FriendsterIO

Twitter has been chosen because of the historical Crypto engagement. Current amount of followers is just above 100, the target is to have 500 by the end of the #111Months project.

FriendsterIO has been chosen as I believe this is the future of social media. A young fresh new social media site, with integrated Crypto functionality. Non censored and decentralized. The target is to have 1.000 followers by the end of the #111Months project.

On way to get more engagement on Friendster is by starting the weekly “Castles of Carapthian” game, which his hit the top of the most popular posts section.

New updates will follow…

 

Transformation

“Don’t fear failure. Fear being in the exact same place next year as you are today.” Michael Hyatt

When I started the Carpathian-Basin project it was at a moment I was looking for something more although I am quite successful in professional life and have a happy and adorable family.

I previously tried to set up a company called Portaholic with my two Stepsons after visiting one of them during a Erasmus program in Portugal where we took up the ambition to bring the joy of tasting Port to the Hungarian people. This project came to a stand still just before summer 2018 as the regulation surrounding Alcoholic beverages into Hungary (or any EU country) required too much paperwork and investment before being able to set up a decent company. But this joined exercise infected me with the entrepreneurial virus.

Carpathian-Basin Est. 2018.

Inspired by all travels and life experiences I decided it would be nice to capture these in real life apparel and market it for the wider public to be able to buy it and therefore I looked for a suitable name which referred to my whereabouts and had any relation with traveling or geography. That is how I came up with Carpathian Basin as Hungary, my new home is located in the Carpathian Basin. I started to design and create shirts but on the way decided it is too personal just to sell it and it is better suited for personal usage or for sharing with friends on certain occasions. The upcoming weekend with my former Student room mates is one of these occasions where a custom made T-shirt has a great value.

In the meantime, while designing shirts, the cooperation with my step sons had a new boost and we founded a new company, called Oh!Live. This would be similar style as the previously founded Portaholic, but with healthy products which would be easier to import, organic olive oil. Another quality item, which is difficult to find in Hungary. The launch of our website will happen in the next couple of days.

While exploring all the area’s of enterpreneurship, I also became a huge enthousiast of the world of crypto-currency and Tron in particular. This had led me to change from my the focus on apparel to a focus on all things close to me from like traveling, Oh!Live, cryptocurrency, apparel and what ever will come next.
