How to be a millionaire without having much money

Sometimes I wake up, sweating, and I feel a dark fear around my heart. What if that money doesn’t come in to pay the next month rent? The anxiety is followed by shame.

A distant voice from the past slaps me in the face with the fact that I don’t own a house or have much savings. A man of my age must have made his wins in our Western society. He should be on the “safe” side. Own assets that work for him after working to achieve those assets.

To make things worse, I just started a new career…


Capitalize your online reputation in your own tokens

To be an artist these days means being a well-oiled content creator machine.

Only a few will make it to the top.

There is another wave coming. It’s called decentralization and nobody really seems to understand the implications.

It will be a tsunami changing everything.

It will eradicate all banks, just for starters. So highly disruptive and it requires a different mindset. Well, a whole new paradigm as a matter of fact.

And yes, it runs on Blockchain tech. The magic 21st-century word.

Add to this the rise of NFT’s and it’s clear a lot is brewing in the kitchen…

Something’s cooking in the crypto meth lab

The following is a market screen shot from yesterday September 13th, just after opening.

Bitcoin ramps up and hit its head at $47.000,- within minutes, to immediately bungy-jump back to $44.000,-. Three thousand bucks in minutes. A buckle up moment.

All I can do is staring at a red and green candle XXL inside what’s supposed to look like a bear flag, descending triangle, or in Netflix language;

Bitcoin Breaking Bad

While everything seemed to go so well before September 7th. Bitcoin’s price felt like accelerating towards 60k.

Than, within minutes, 4.16 PM local time, Bitcoin breaks $44.000,- and falls…

As in this moment of writing, Bitcoin is behaving weirdly. I mean, markets just opened on Monday, September 13th, and Bitcoin ramps up and hit its head at $47.000,- within minutes, to immediately bungy-jump back to $44.000,-

Three thousand bucks in minutes.

I am staring at a red and green candle XXL inside what’s supposed to look like a bear flag, descending triangle, or in Netflix language;

Bitcoin Breaking Bad

While writing this, 4.16 PM local time, Bitcoin breaks $44.000,- and falls towards $43.400 within seconds. Confirming my thesis, breaking out of the descending triangle, and rampaging towards $42.770, …


Why I’m done with ‘We’re Screwed’ Headlines — They’re not Contributing to Anything

Photo by Jon Tyson on Unsplash

Our collective fear frenzy won’t help to solve climate change, economical collapse, species extinction, social inequality and polarization, flaring pandemics nor political corruption nor your neighbours congestion.

About 70% of the titles I read online on these topics I label as “despair” titles. We’re too late, hell is upon us, the meteorites are coming. Humanity vs Nature : 0–1.

We’re screwed.

Or people are simply blaming, scapegoating or public shaming others. The latest victim is Joe Rogan. Happily, he’s too big to cancel.

Blaming others for our own lack of fulfillment is avoiding taking responsibility for our actions. …


Dear Tim, I know you don't read responses, but here I go

I've red about 200 of your pieces and clapped my hands dry, all of them bringing real value in this world, I can't thank you enough, real genius

This piece is not genius

you're picking a side, the conventient side

for now

its sad that the 2021 social dynamics are forcing people to think they need to pick sides and start blaming the 'others', from an unprecedented amazing ethical supremacy, without any opening for meeting the other in their world, their thoughts. their fears

its also a convenient…


How to be a filthy rich with nothing to spend

Photo by Rodolfo Sanches Carvalho on Unsplash

Countless times in my life people have told me I live like a billionaire but with way more time than the Jeff’s and Elon’s of this planet.

I might be happier too.

Billionaires are obsessed with money and power.

I couldn’t care less.

It’s just not in my configuration. I don’t manage to save, I don’t need a crypto portfolio, I don’t need property to believe that the rest of my financial life will be Sunday’s playing golf and hunting young sexy ladies at cocktail parties on yachts. I can do that without owning a house.

I don’t need a…


Are NFT’s a brilliant digital property solution or the monetization of everything?

Photo by redcharlie on Unsplash

Are NFT’s the next digital tulip mania? Or worse? Tulips are flowers, beautiful real things you can smell and touch. NFT’s are often a self-entitled bunch of lost pixels reorganized and called ‘art’.

It’s the death of art. That’s what it is.

O Yeah, and it’s on a Blockchain.

Everything these days on a Blockchain seems to be touched by the golden hand of an invisible tech overlord from an unseen dystopian future.

And must cost a shitload.

Here are some theories why NFT’s are booming.

NFT’s are the ultimate criminal crypto underground whitewash machine. It’s friends bidding on friends…
