EP007: How To Start Your First Crypto Portfolio

We’re baaaaack!

On this episode of The New Wave Entrepreneur Podcast, I’m going deep on what it takes to get started investing in crypto. It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: this is not financial advice.

Do your own research.

Here’s what we’re covering in the episode:

  • The ground rules / basics for investing

  • Discovering your “why” for investing

  • The staples you should have in your portfolio

  • Smart contracts / protocols

  • Stable coins

  • Oracles

  • DEXs

  • DAOs

  • Crypto gaming

  • Meme coins

Also covered in this episode:

  • How to monitor your crypto portfolio

  • Where to swap/exchange your crypto assets

  • How to store your crypto offline

  • Other sources to learn more about crypto

We are all creators, but it’s easy to lose touch with that ability in our daily lives.
