  1. I don't know if this is the right place for this but I figured someone might have some advice so here we go... I am kind of stuck in a industry I don't find very interesting or rewarding (supply chain management) and whilst the pay is ok (slightly above the average London salary) it's not amazing. I am in my mid 30's, have a child etc etc and want to change jobs and earn more money. One part of the job I do enjoy is the analysis side and I think I would enjoy working as a data analyst/BI analyst. It looks like there are a lot of well paid jobs out there but I don't know how I would switch over without taking a very junior role and major paycut. I have developed decent business acumen over the years and have some experience with MySQL, Power BI and Excel and producing KPI reports, spend analysis etc. My plan is to improve the following skills through online courses/websites: Advanced Excel SQL - MySQL Power BI + DAX/Tableau Read a book/do a course on statistics Then: Python - Matplotlib, pandas, NumPy etc Along with a general course or cert on data analysis and watch the rest of CS50. And volunteering myself for data projects at work. Then I plan to create an online portfolio showing a few options of personal and professional projects and try market myself as a freelancer., in order to help apply for a job. I may have to completely rewrite my resume and get a bit creative with the truth to get a look in. I know the above skills can take a lifetime to master but I also feel like 80% of the time you can do a good job with relatively basic technical skills and a strong understanding of what is important to running a business. So anyway, that's my plan for the next 12 months. My concerns are that I don't have a stem degree or real experience as an actual analyst so would be lacking the stuff they don't teach you. I do think I'd be good but know I will have massive imposter syndrome applying for anything beyond a very junior role. I think my dream would be to transition to data analyst role within 12 months, Get to a good salary/freelance within 5 years (salaries are generally a LOT lower here than in the US) Then maybe learn a bit more about the cross over with data science over the longer term (10 years). If anyone fucks with any of this, I'd like to hear your thoughts.
  2. Anyone into NFT's? I can see they have a bit of utility and longevity in allowing people to support creators and then being able to personalise your online presence (if that's your thing) but I still can't understand how you can trade them to make money without getting lucky. I'm also an NFT noob but this podcast helped me understand the concept better... Also, shout out to whoever said to cop some NuCypher (maybe casek?), you made me some money!
  3. @Dirty_habiT interesting. I’m a super coding novice but have wondered about people doing this sort of thing. What does the bot do?
  4. @fat ralphy It will tell you what coins you have, how many and what their current value is. Is that what you mean?
  5. You can buy whatever so either a fraction of a coin OR a whole coin or multiple coins. You can leave your money on the exchange wallet (Gemini) but there's the risk they go under or get hacked. The safest option for wallet is generally thought to be a hardware wallet.
  6. That's awesome... hopefully the time will come for the rest of us!
  7. Thanks, obviously not your first rodeo. This IS my first rodeo and have gone from being all about ETH to some crypto-euphoria FOMO/YOLO options. It's treated me well so far but will make an effort to reign in it a bit before I get burnt. I read this recently which got me excited about ETH again after the price hasn't moved much for a couple of months:
  8. Are you just in btc n eth now? I’m thinking about consolidating in a month or two.
  9. Planning on keeping ADA for a couple of years I think. Currently holding (largest to smallest): Coti Orn Eth BTC ADA link grt
  10. I recently made the switch to a password manager after years of thinking about it and it's really not that hard, and you feel way more secure. I use Bitwarden (free) which works pretty well on iphone, plus browser add ons and desktop app. Also check: https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if your details are being sold online.
  11. Where have you staked your ADA? I'm staked on Daedulus but find the desktop only app super cumbersome.
  12. Where are you getting stuck? I don’t actually use either of these but I assume it goes: 1. get your Exodus wallet address and copy it 2. go to Uphold and click send/withdraw 3. Paste the address in and send it
  13. It’s the biggest exchange in the world and has low fees and carries almost every currency, 99.9% transactions are issue free but they process a fuck load and no doubt fuck up sometimes. none of the exchanges are perfect and I think non-existent customer service is the norm. ive only had some minor issues with delays on transferring funds that sorted themselves out in a day or two. check out coinbase, coinbase pro, bitterex, Gemini etc but sure they will have similar issues. it’s the Wild West out here.
