When I first started CoinTrek, I couldn’t help but dive in aimlessly and start writing, and my goal to earn a single bitcoin quickly became a limiting factor in the development of this blog. Since then I have reimagined what CoinTrek will become. Now with great pleasure I bring to you Warp Fields! One of my greatest fascinations with Star Trek was the mere fact that almost everything was plausible. I read a book in my early college days called, “The Physics of Star Trek” . In that book I first came to realize that a man named Miguel Alcubierre had actually invented Warp Drive. Albeit on paper, but the math existed! Isn’t that awesome? We as a species have the brain power to figure out how to warp space. Unfortunately, the energy requirements are impossible with today’s technology but I am confident that humanity will get there one day.
The Alcubierre Drive got me thinking. CoinTrek is trying to cover a broad range of topics, but I only need one niche, and then it hit me. Just like any starship needs a warp field to travel, I need one too. A Field of Focus! Cointrek will now have Warp Fields of Focus! Now, I do not wish to abandon entirely my other interests, so there will be four Fields of Focus starting out. However, only one of them will be my primary field of focus at any given time. The others shall be secondary. Moving forward I plan to blog monthly about my primary field of focus and one of the three secondaries. If I have time for a third or more then I will do so.
Primary Warp Field: – Ripple, $XRP
My primary field of focus moving forward is going to be Ripple! I repeatedly kept coming back to a single crypto subject that I feel strongly about. Ripple is a company that is going to change the world. I’m not jumping on the bandwagon here by any means because of the $XRP hype last December 2017. I will disclose that I own some $XRP, but I got in before it broke above $0.20. That’s late compared to some people who’ve been into this since 2013.
Here’s what Ripple has on everyone else in crypto:
- A dream team company that is making all of the right moves. All you have to do is go check out their own blog and twitter feeds to see their progress.
- Multi-faceted technology that extends beyond just sending around XRP. Ripple goes so much beyond its native token, $XRP.
- My opinion. Ripple is the most likely to be adopted not only by crypto fan boys and girls, but by industry and regulators.
I will be joining the ranks of what I call “Ripple Reporters”. THese are the men and women that scour the interwebs for information to discuss related to Ripple, and frequent xrpchat. They have their own blogs too. One of my inspirations was a person with the handle Hodor, @Hodor7777 on twitter . I am looking forward to seeing how I fall into this niche.
Secondary Warp Fields
CoinTrek started out talking areas of investing and education, and I have refashioned them into the secondary Warp Fields of Focus. Neither of them has priority over the other, but these represent areas in crypto I want to touch on.
Secondary Warp Field #1 – Achievement
The achievement field of focus will cover all things that I have personally accomplished on my own CoinTrek. This field will focus on earning cryptocurrency, technical development, and cryptocurrencies that are making a difference.
Secondary Warp Field #2 – Investing
I wanted investing to be its own field of focus because I have no real desire to achieve perfection with it. I am not a day trader or swing trader, I am an investor. Fundamentally, if a company has good potential, I am interested. This field of focus will dwell on what I’ve done to keep track of my portfolio and any major moves that I make. As always, for you the reader, only invest in anything what you are personally willing to lose. Any sort of investment moves I make are my own.
Secondary Warp Field #3 – Crypto Culture
This is going to be one of my own most interesting fields of focus because I want to touch on the waves of change crypto and crypto-industry is making on society. There are points worth talking about in both an internal and external context. For instance, internally, crypto is has lots of issues with scamming and hacks. ICOs are taking investor money and not delivering much. What can be done to make your grandmother comfortable with buying cryptocurrency? In another light, how about indirect impacts? Such as companies and crypto organizations. How they treat employees. How diverse are they? What is the makeup of such places? This field of focus is broad and the topics may range widely but I think it’s important to write about. After all, isn’t that what Star Trek was always about? Talking about the hard topics. Getting you to think.
There you have it! I will start on this style of writing starting next month. You may have already noticed that my bitcoin gauge has been replaced with an XRP gauge. I placed a maximum of 10,000 as a placeholder and I may set a goal for myself in the future. For now I intend to collect more XRP relative to any other crypto in my portfolio and I wanted a shiny gauge for it.
