The member of Nexter team, Vasel from Chicago, has shared his personal ‘love’ story with Bitcoin.

‘I have learned about Bicton in 2009 as I was always interested in new technologies. However, I have left this startup on the first stages of its development’, Vasel said.

‘In 7 years I heard about it again and was in shock how much Bitcoin cost! Luckily for me, I went to three-day lectures and learned more about digital currencies. Then I created a purse and start earning money on it’.

Vasel took it for the rule to invest 5-10% of his income into cryptocurrency.

‘The majority of people still don’t believe in cryptocurrencies and have no idea how to use them and how this system is arranged. I think it’s quite a normal thing for our world. When they invented cars, a great part of the humanity claimed they didn’t need to use these strange iron fuming boxes on wheels. But look at them now!’

The majority have always been against new technologies and innovations. Only a small percentage of people is taking a risk and changing the whole world for the better.
