The blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem is well represented in this year’s Forbes 30-Under-30 GB list, with four young founders and CEOs aged between 25 and 28 featured for their work on crypto finance, blockchain scaling and crypto asset management.
Olaoluwa Osuntokun (25), Nader Al-Naji (26), JB Rubinovitz (26) and Hunter Horsley (28) have made their debut on this year’s list after applying blockchain technology to solve real world problems through their various startups.
Olaoluwa Osuntokun is featured this year because of his work on creating a scaling solution for the Bitcoin blockchain. The Lightning Labs co-founder who moved to the U.S. from Nigeria as a child has successfully raised more than $2.5 million toward increasing bitcoin transaction speed
Nader Al-Naji on the other hand, has raised more than $133 million from a stellar list of investors including Bain Capital, Andreessen Horowitz and Stanley Druckenmiller to develop Basis, a U.S. Dollar-pegged stablecoin.
JB Rubinovitz on his part is the co-founder of Bail Bloc, which uses a cryptocurrency mining framework to raise bail for qualified individuals who cannot afford it.
Hunter Horsley, the CEO of Bitwise Asset Management currently maintains four cryptocurrency indices that are currently used by over 600 multifamily offices.
I hope you already understand the importance of having goals in life. So, I won’t start quoting Tony Robbins for you, but I will mention some specifics that help you set realistic goals to help your trading.
Ok. Seriously now.
Keep a trading journal
Every time you open and close a position, you must make an entry in your journal. Note down the criteria used to enter and exit the trade as well as any observations made along the way. When you write it down, not only are you creating an invaluable resource for you to measure and track your progress, but you’re training your brain to think mechanically, which is the most important part of trading.
Never set a growth goal!
I often see new traders targeting a set number of pips per day, or a certain percentage return per month, however, You can’t take more than the market will give you. Sometimes the best trading decision you make is waiting. Setting yourself a defined growth goal will force you to trade in unfavourable conditions.
You are in total control of your success
This leads on from the previous point – You can’t control the market. However, you can control how you react to it. If you trade the strategy correctly and record each decision, then you’ve succeeded. No strategy will make money all the time; it’s simply the nature of the markets and why I don’t suggest you tie your goals to your short-term performance. However, if you stay true to a winning strategy and don’t make emotional decisions, the profits will come.
Before you start anything, you need to understand the intended destination and have a clear path in your mind on how to get there. Things happen, your plan will change and that’s ok. But you need that initial road map if you stand any chance of succeeding.
To quote one of my most loathed clichés “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.
