Leighton Emmons on Uniting Alpha Seekers with the Blockchain Boys Club (Episode 232)
Leighton Emmons joins us to discuss uniting Alpha seekers with the Blockchain Boys Club.
Leighton Emmons is Co-founder of Blockchain Boys Club, a new community where founders, developers, and investors can come together around their mutual passion for all things blockchain; learning, sharing knowledge, and discovering opportunities they otherwise might have missed. The community is launching with an NFT collection of 10,000 unique avatars called BCBoys and holders will have access to “The Terminal,” a members-only area of the community where professional traders and investors offer real-time trading signals and share investment opportunities.

Richard Carthon: Hello, everyone, and welcome to another episode of Crypto Current, your host here, Richard Carthon. And today I have a special guest all the way out in the Netherlands working on an awesome crypto project NFT space. Need to learn more about this? We have the creator and the founder of the remarkable blockchain boys club. Leighton, how are you doing today?
00:01:33:19 – 00:01:38:23
Leighton Emmons: And I appreciate you having me on here, Richard. It’s great to be here. And yeah, now can’t wait to kind of dive into it.
00:01:39:12 – 00:01:44:05
Richard Carthon: No doubt, man. Before we learn more about that, first, we’ll learn more about you. Give us some background on yourself.
00:01:45:02 – 00:01:58:18
Leighton Emmons: Yeah, by all means. So I’m very much in the startup space. My professional work experience kind of surrounds digital marketing, but I mean my my experience and love and passion for blood, for blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The whole kind of came in 2017.
00:02:00:03 – 00:02:30:23
Leighton Emmons: Actually, one of my co-founders of this project and who have also been doing a lot of my marketing work with, he introduced me to kind of the whole ICL craze back in 2017. Right. This is this is I don’t know if you were like on some of the like the Bitcoin subreddit, this is one bitcoin just broke $4000, right? And how crazy of a time it was like to be alive right? Then if you were already going crazy and it feels like an entire lifetime ago, kind of scary to think about. So, yeah, that was kind of my introduction into the space and actually trading in general, which was pretty phenomenal.
00:02:30:25 – 00:03:06:02
Leighton Emmons: You know, no one ever told me ten thousand percent returns were not normal, like you were not supposed to see that regularly, right? Right. So I mean, we dug deep and we were like constantly researching projects, investing in a bunch of ICOs found some really good ones, found some really bad ones. I’m still holding on to some from four years ago. Like, absolutely comical. I mean, I almost just want to like frame them and put them up, if I could, if I could, on the wall. So that was kind of really been my experience with it. I mean, actually, with the 2018 crash, I think that was pretty scary for most most people because that that crash was, like, especially brutal.
00:03:06:05 – 00:03:37:00
Leighton Emmons: Everything pretty much went all the way back to ICAO prices and 2018 2019. I mean, there’s an entire bear run. So I mean, kind of felt a little bit in and out at times, but constantly been trying to trade, go along, figuring on trading different trading strategies. And obviously, I mean, there have been a few trends we’ve missed things we picked up on. But yeah, I mean, most recently with this whole NFT craze, it’s kind of been where we’re at now. So we I mean, if if our if you want, I can get it’s kind of the origin of the project and kind of what we’re trying to do there.
00:03:37:09 – 00:04:10:28
Leighton Emmons: Yeah, let’s go ahead and do that. So I mean, again, you have an extensive background being in the crypto space, you’re able to be in when bitcoin is around four grand to see it go up down and whatnot. And the roller coaster that is crypto. It’s interesting that. You saw a lot of people in twenty eighteen twenty nineteen during that bear market kind of disappear. And the ones who kind of stuck around say, You know what, I’m keep looking into this like me myself. I got in late twenty eighteen and when we were going in early 2018 and as we went through the entire bear, I was like, This is the future.
00:04:11:09 – 00:04:34:20
Richard Carthon: This is going to happen. It’s either going to go to nothing or it’s going to be the greatest thing ever. And I’m banking is going to go be the greatest thing ever. And with you being an involved in seeing like some of the early 90s and then even to to what has emerged basically beginning this, this march tells us kind of the origin story of like, how did you see like the 90s as a niche and then wanting to go and create something in that space?
00:04:35:18 – 00:05:10:08
Leighton Emmons: Yeah, so I mean, I mean, we had obviously seen the creation of entities. I mean, way back when. I mean, CryptoKitties was one of the first big mainstream projects. And I remember like when it crashed Ethereum because gas fees were super high and there was so much traffic going on with that project. I mean, I mean, just to kind of see it come to fruition. I mean, there have been so many evolutions, I think, in the NFT space. I mean, where it’s come in the last six months is phenomenal. So we didn’t really kind of conceptualize the the need to kind of create a project up until I think about four months ago just kind of again to take a step back quickly here.
00:05:11:06 – 00:05:44:05
Leighton Emmons: I mean, me, my body just being in the blockchain space, something I mean, because we’ve only ever traded alongside one another. We never really had any kind of support system. We never really had anyone to kind of suggest give you feedback on on certain trading signals to give you feedback on, you know, maybe this isn’t a good buy. This might be a smart investment, you know, really stay on top of market trends and there is like the DeFi craze of 2019. We were super late to that. I mean, pretty much missed the whole thing and this was in terms of investing in early based projects. So we were constantly trying to look for a solution to this problem.
00:05:44:18 – 00:06:30:13
Leighton Emmons: And coming from sort of background, I’m a big believer in two things. One is you’ve got to create if you’re going to create a project, you’re going to create a product, it’s going to solve a real world problem. And two, it’s got to be a product that you’re willing to stand behind. It’s got to be good value so that no one, we were like, What is the problem we’re trying to solve here? And we’re like, Look, man, we’ve missed so many things. We’ve never had someone to kind of bounce ideas off of. I mean, besides one another, we’ve never really had someone to kind of give us instructions. We’re like, Look, this, this is the perfect synergy with the NFT space, because what we can now do is kind of bridge that gap of the cryptocurrency world and building out a meaningful community where we can bring in blockchain enthusiasts, creators, founders, investors to give market insight, share market insights rather with one another.
00:06:30:21 – 00:07:09:21
Leighton Emmons: You know, being able to allude to potentially lucrative financial investments, all kinds of different aspects and dimensions of the market kind of bring that into one collective space where everyone benefits from one another. And in that way, it just kind of relieves the burden and stress of of having to always check your tickers every, you know, 20 minutes, constantly opening up the Binance’s app, constantly having to be worried about reading the news. You know, just to have that sense of, look, there’s a community here, they’re going to give giving good suggestions. And again, in the early days, like even around twenty eighteen, I mean, you saw how some of the crypto crypto subreddits just evolved into absolute toxicity and the space.
00:07:09:23 – 00:07:40:05
Leighton Emmons: I mean, even today, it’s still very like, cultish to an extent, right? People are very kind of separatist on, you know, I hold this token, OK, it’s gone down and I get it. You know, it’s all human nature. When you invest in something and it goes the other way, you kind of feel even even more attached to it. You know, it’s one of these like irrational arguments, but it’s just part of human nature and it’s just what we do, right? So anyways, I only bring that up because we know how to compare kind of what a strong community looks like and what something that’s a little bit too toxic looks like.
00:07:40:07 – 00:08:10:18
Leighton Emmons: So being able to have that comparison is kind of again, we came to this base like, look, this NFT craze is the perfect opportunity to create something that is meaningful that actually solves the problem that we’re looking to solve. And we just kind of put the message out there and see how many people are willing to resonate with that. And and it’s been really reaffirming kind of having people come into this corner like this is awesome. Hopefully, you guys are doing here just kind of shooting victims, having conversations. It’s all. It’s all been pretty genuine. So I mean, we’re trying to let it go organically.
00:08:10:20 – 00:08:13:03
Leighton Emmons: And yeah, it’s been it’s been a fun experience so far.
00:08:13:19 – 00:08:59:10
Richard Carthon: It’s great, man. And no, no, no. It’s it’s it’s good to have the background in the context because honestly, your background still similar to I even started a cryptocurrency in the first place when I first got in the space didn’t have a great, reliable source to go for information. Everything was either super technical or or here’s how you get rich quick and get your crypto Lambo and the like you said toxic. And I want to be able to create content and information and learn for myself that I think I could transfer to other people. And it sounds like you were also trying to create that kind of community and be able to create a way that you’re bringing in people who collectively want to all prosper together, all get really good information and be able to help each other get to that next financial level that they’re all seeking to do.
00:08:59:12 – 00:09:16:12
Richard Carthon: So you create the name Blockchain Boys Club. So how did you come up with the name? And then also, you know where you currently at with the process? Um, I’m sure you’ve been putting a lot of work into creating the NFT. And what are kind of the like reward structures with being part of Blockchain Boys Club like kind of break some of that down for us.
00:09:17:14 – 00:09:49:02
Richard Carthon: Yeah, by all means. So the origin of the name of the project. I mean, we we just kind of forget the majority of what we’ve done so far. If you take a look at our merchandise, our website, again, that’s it looks that second point that I talked about earlier, like we wanted to create a genuine product that that we think is high value. We’re willing to stand behind. That’s why we fully doc’s team, you know, we’re putting our identities behind everything. So we thought about like, what kind of brand would we want to build, you know, not something that’s totally obscure or totally arbitrary. Like, let’s come up with something that we think is cool.
00:09:49:04 – 00:10:19:27
Richard Carthon: We think is fun is is indicative of what we’re doing here, the community we’re building. And so we I mean, we bounced around a bunch of ideas. Then we were like, Let’s let’s call it what it is or it’s the blockchain boys club. I mean, I put on my marketing now, definitely for a little while. And it was like, you know, 80 to 90 percent of people in the blockchain space tend to be male, but at the same time again, we just kind of wanted to come from a place of what is something we kind of think is, sounds fun, you know, sounds cool and we want to get behind. So that’s kind of how we came up with it.
00:10:21:17 – 00:10:51:24
Richard Carthon: In terms of the utility behind the project, we’ve got a number of things. So first and foremost, we’re looking to build out a community portal area where you’ll be able to message other members. Check out some of these trading signals. Get news, get have a live feed of all this valuable information. So we’re currently working on building out that UI, and again, we’re bouncing ideas off our community members. You know, figuring out what features do we want? Do we not need? We don’t want to come from a place of just creating something for the sake of creating something. Know there’s actually no value to the end user.
00:10:52:13 – 00:11:25:22
Richard Carthon: And again, the great thing is that both both my co-founder and I, we’ve been in this space for so long. We know what kind of features and functions we’re looking for. We’re like, This is something we would genuinely use ourselves, and if we would use it ourselves, there’s a good chance to a whole host of people with the same kind of problem who are looking for a similar solution in terms of the other benefits of the project. We’ve got a $50000 liquidation grant because I mean, we do a lot of margin trading. I’ve had some bad trades. They go south. Sometimes it’s not up to you, right? So we’ve got a little bit of a safety net there.
00:11:26:09 – 00:12:00:00
Richard Carthon: We’ve got a $100000 community investment pool. So this is for the community collectively to kind of make decisions on and then profits and revenues go back into the organization. We’ve got exclusive merchandise for our holders. We’ve got weekly lottery weekly lotteries. Sorry. And then we’ve also got a podcast we’re going to be creating called traitors gone wild, and all holders are going to be direct owners or partial owners of the podcast. And again, we wanted to create a podcast that was kind of like fun talks about some of the hilarious crypto stories, hilarious yellow stories of people.
00:12:00:02 – 00:12:19:24
Richard Carthon: You know, the 20 tax leverages some of the hilarious projects in the space, just like, what? What’s the are you holding today? Just all kinds of really fun stuff. And again, we just wanted to kind of take a step back and help people realize, you know, at the end of the day, you know, they’re all pixels on a screen, they’re all digits that you’re going to get a lot of stress, a lot of anxiety.
00:12:21:12 – 00:12:51:02
Richard Carthon: I mean, full transparency. Like I fell into a few bouts of depression, especially in twenty, right? It’s like you make a ton of money. No one ever told you sell and then it kind of comes crashing down. You’re like, Oh, wait. Yeah, I definitely should have sold some, you know, it kind of like all hits you at once. So again, we just kind of wanted to have people take a step back like, understand, it’s just money at the end of the day and again, try to relieve more of a sense of humor and relieve the sense of anxiety and stress like you are going to miss tradesmen and it’s just part of the game. And yeah.
00:12:52:02 – 00:13:04:21
Richard Carthon: That’s a lot of value that you’re bringing in, and, you know, I just I want to spend just a quick second on on something you said are two things one, the concept of taking profit and we’ll actually spend some time on this in a second, especially as we’re going through this time.
00:13:04:23 – 00:13:10:17
Richard Carthon: I mean, I can walk, you walk you through all kinds of trading strategies. I mean, right now the idea of what I’m talking about. But yeah,
00:13:10:28 – 00:13:45:01
Richard Carthon: but and we’ll break some of that down a second. But the other piece of it is just the mental piece that goes with it. The crypto world is 24 hours. It does not stop. There’s constantly news coming out. You constantly have to stay on top of stuff. There’s all these different things from Telegram, Discord, Twitter to website. So many places where you can get literally just system overload of just constant stimulation. And then you always can have FOMO. You can have like, Oh, I should have sold some here and like, Oh, I could have done this project, that’d be worth X. Like, there’s so many stimulants that can, like, become overwhelming and kind of weigh you down.
00:13:45:03 – 00:14:08:11
Richard Carthon: And sometimes it’s good to just have other people in the space that you can kind of even speak to and relate to, like those moments of like, Oh man, this just feels heavy and be able to walk through and get past that. So I think you being able to create that community to have that kind of fellowship with one another, to be able to talk about those things. Talk about when margin trades go bad because they do, you know, good to have some good ones, but you can have some bad ones. They happen.
00:14:12:09 – 00:14:40:05

Subscribe to cryptocurrency YouTube channel today and as always, stay cryptocurrency.
00:14:44:22 – 00:15:16:04
Richard Carthon: It’s exactly that, and, you know, like anyone who you follow in the space, you know, people only ever posted a green trade’s. First of all, I think a lot of people forget that like no one posts their losses and there’s a reason for that, right? So it’s no wonder no one trades effectively a hundred percent of the time, and no one who makes green trades one percent of the time. And if they sign you that concept, you know, they’re probably, you know, line up their ass thing. And so you kind of just have to realize, like failing is a part of the game and it’s just all mitigating risk, right? That’s that’s the effectiveness of trade in general.
00:15:17:23 – 00:15:39:19
Leighton Emmons: But yeah, we wanted to kind of like humble people like, don’t worry, like you can have a large raise that’s that’s all part of the game. And I think sometimes that lifestyle or the concepts you see get advertised to you suggest otherwise. But that’s that’s just not the case. So we’re trying to, in fact, apply a little bit more of a kind of human psyche to do what. Yeah, how things work.
00:15:40:07 – 00:16:12:28
Richard Carthon: Definitely. And I think that’s an important piece of it. A lot of it gets lost in translation. Like you said, these crypto influencers and teams who are going out, they they like to show you all the green, but they don’t like to show you the red. And that’s why it’s good to have the transparency of good and bad and don’t want to take profits, et cetera. Just general knowledge, things that a lot of new crypto enthusiasts come in thinking that they’re hardcore traders and their investors. And there’s a big difference. And if you want to become a trader, you can just it takes steps. You need to have people that can help you avoid.
00:16:13:00 – 00:16:29:03
Richard Carthon: Some of those businesses are going to get some anyway because it’s just part of the game. But like you can, it can help you from making massive losses and help you like, figure out and learn faster so you can, you know, come in and make sure that you’re getting your gains. But I do want to just spend another just quick second on.
00:16:30:27 – 00:16:33:13
Richard Carthon: You’re getting ready to launch. Can you give us some more information on that?
00:16:34:10 – 00:17:07:17
Richard Carthon: Yeah, no, absolutely. So we’re working towards our pre-sale launch, but it’s going to be next week on November 20th, so we’re still just kind of getting as much exposure out as possible, getting the word out again, just trying to put the message out and see who it resonates with. And by all means, we’re not trying to sell anything immediately. We’re just saying, come out and have a conversation with us. See what we’re about? Check out the website. If it’s something that interests you, you want to kind of talk to us, have a little bit more of a conversation by all means kind of the discord. Shoot me a message. Talk to some of our awesome members and go from there.
00:17:08:10 – 00:17:12:25
Richard Carthon: Awesome. And well, for people that want to do that, what are the good ways that they can connect?
00:17:14:00 – 00:17:33:18
Richard Carthon: Yeah, so we’ve got a website of blockchain boys, dark clubs, and then we’ve also got a Discord group, so that would be Discord dog slash blockchain boys club. So by all means, I mean, we’ve also got a Twitter and an Instagram, but if you check out our website, you’ll be able to find all those affiliated links through that. And yeah, come on over and just have a conversation with us.
00:17:34:03 – 00:18:04:16
Richard Carthon: Absolutely. Well, sounds good, everyone listening. Make sure you go check that out for everyone that’s watching. As you can see, there’s a cool blockchain boys club flag in the background that Layden is showing off. So if you are listening, make sure you make sure you go and check out our YouTube so you can see that and check out some of the other amazing things that we have going on there. But Layden also want to get back to you on the concept that you talked about, with everything going on in the trader’s aspect about the importance of taking profit.
00:18:04:25 – 00:18:18:10
Richard Carthon: So actually, we, a cryptocurrency, created a piece of content yesterday. It literally talked about the importance of what it means to take profit. Can you kind of just give us some scenarios of, like some what you would consider some best practices of what that looks like?
00:18:18:28 – 00:18:56:09
Richard Carthon: Yeah, no, absolutely. So I mean, it’s this again, not financial advice, but purely financial advice. I’ve also never studied trading. I’ve never studied. This is purely just kind of my experience, right? This is four years of being in the crypto space, seeing things go up ten thousand percent. First and foremost, a piece of advice that I try to live by to is and this actually took me a long time to actually conceptualize and internalize to when you make a trade, you don’t actually have to ever sell a hundred percent of your position. This was one of the first things that I kind of came to terms when I was like, Wow, you know, it sounds so obvious when you say it out loud, but it’s one of those things in practice.
00:18:56:11 – 00:19:26:15
Richard Carthon: A lot of people, I think, forget to deploy. So any time that you think something is a good or you’re not really sure you’re like, Oh, it might go up higher, it might not sell 50 percent, right? You don’t have to get rid of your entire position so you can sell 50 percent now and just wait to see what happens with the rest. And it goes the same for selling goes the same for buying, right? If you’re going to buy now, just buy with 50 percent. See what happens. The price may go way lower because if you buy a hundred percent now and it continues to dip, you know, then your stock and then you’re feeling, Oh man, I should have waited.
00:19:26:25 – 00:19:52:15
Richard Carthon: But as long as you still have a little bit more to play with and again, you can do 50 percent and then when that next moment comes to another 50 percent, so now you’re down to twenty five percent of your original stack. That would be number one is just kind of like a safe measure. Number two, if it’s good enough to take a screenshot of, it’s good enough to sell. So you know, if you’re sitting there thinking, Oh mama, send this to my buddy. This is awesome. It’s probably also a good time that you should get out of the trade.
00:19:54:19 – 00:20:25:03
Richard Carthon: Other than that, I mean, there’s a whole host of different, different concepts and strategies out there. Another one might be, you know, have a price target when you get into something. You know, if you put in your money, tell yourself now, or should I say, write it down on a piece of paper? Like, if I hit this quantity or this total value, I’m willing to get out. I would be happy with this, but I’m telling you right now, if you don’t write that down, you don’t put on that sticky note and put that by your labs on when that time comes, you’re going to be sitting there thinking, Oh, but it’s going up, right? Let it go up again.
00:20:25:05 – 00:20:50:29
Richard Carthon: Let just let it double again right away. If it’s already doubled so easily, it’s surely going to double again. That’s not how it works. And again, you just have to be content with your decisions. And again, this is just kind of comes comes through making enough trades, being in the space long enough, you you just kind of have to accept you’re not going to win them all. You’re going to make wrong decisions. You just have to kind of level with them. So a couple of things there. So yeah, that’s kind of a would be my suggestions.
00:20:51:11 – 00:21:25:20
Richard Carthon: Yeah, I think those are solid pieces to take into consideration to getting everyone listening. We don’t give out financial advice here. This is all just our personal experiences and things to consider. One of the things I like to tell and and speak on is taking out your principal, plus a little bit of profit. So for example, if a person puts in a hundred bucks and then three weeks later, it’s worth three hundred. I personally would then take out my principal with this one hundred dollars and then I’d probably take anywhere from 50 percent to a hundred percent of that. So the 50 or another hundred bucks. So now it’s about 200 bucks and I have another hundred there and I just let it ride its house money.
00:21:25:22 – 00:21:50:25
Richard Carthon: If you’re talking about like casino money, like you’re literally just letting that if it goes up to a thousand great, if it goes to nothing, whatever I’ve already won, you’ve already taken profit. Yeah, that’s a goodwill, and there’s no chance you lose at all. And so it’s just a good concept to have, especially going after through both a bullish and bear market because it becomes very easy to think, Oh, this is just going to keep going and going and going. The next thing you know, you’re upside down, you’re like, How did we get here?
00:21:51:14 – 00:22:07:24
Richard Carthon: Yeah, exactly. Yeah, exactly that. And I mean, even in an extension of that right is only invest what you’re willing to lose. You know, don’t don’t rely on cryptocurrency to change your life and don’t rely on it as a sole source of income. It should be something on the side, something that you just kind of
00:22:10:11 – 00:22:43:27
Richard Carthon: have just be additional. And I think as long as you’re. So in that mindset, you still got other revenue streams coming in. You’re always going to be finally thinking, OK, if this tax, it sucks. It’s horrible, but it’s not the end of the world, like it becomes the end of the world when you rely on it solely. So at that same time, don’t let crypto completely consume your livelihood as tempting as it is. And as as as you are fixated, as you might be checking prices every morning, checking prices before you go to bed. I mean, I do that. I do that compulsively, you know? So again, try not to let it consume your entire livelihood.
00:22:44:15 – 00:23:16:24
Richard Carthon: No doubt men will do more fun questions. I want to kind of look at is as we look at the entire market over the last year, you know, one of the big players right now or both NFTs, the metaverse. And of course, there’s a lot of cool trades to get into. There’s DeFi, there’s security, there’s there’s so many different plays. What do you think going into twenty twenty two as we potentially could see this eventually getting out of a bull cycle, even if the super cycle, whatever you want to call it, eventually there will be a reckoning. There will be a clawback when that moment happens.
00:23:16:26 – 00:23:27:04
Richard Carthon: And I’m not saying we’re gonna get back to like twenty eighteen twenty nineteen territory, but there will probably be some bearish times. What do you think is going to be important for people to be evaluating during that time?
00:23:28:29 – 00:24:02:22
Richard Carthon: That’s a really good question. I think I think what kind of led to the whole. I mean, during the ICO craze, right? I think this was kind of blown out of proportion. You saw all these projects. I mean, obviously, the technology was quote unquote revolutionary at that time. It was trying to find new innovative applications for it, for the technology, right? And then it kind of all got blown out of proportion in the way of is there actually a need for this? You know, is there a utility for this? And I think it’s it’s even hard right now to really digest that because it feels because there is such a demand for these expertise for the metaverse.
00:24:04:14 – 00:24:24:08
Richard Carthon: I mean, all the crazy right now are these game game five tokens, right? Access Infinity Sandbox. I mean, there’s a bunch of them, right? So again, it feels very much like there is a real utility to them. It feels like they belong. But again, it does sometimes take a bearish cycle to really kind of make sense of, but are people actually going to be using this so.
00:24:26:01 – 00:25:02:19
Richard Carthon: In light of that, during a bear run, I would just kind of again, if you believe in a project and you’ve seen done your due diligence in terms of why you’re investing in it, right? We’re not talking about Chicagoans here. We’re talking about legitimate projects, you know, projects that are on the top 100 of CMC. Again, just stand by your conviction, right? I think there’s nothing wrong with holding an item at the end of the day, the premises. This will go up in another five years, right? So I’m not saying you shouldn’t sell and then buy back at a lower price. But again, if if you have enough conviction and you believe in the project that you’re investing in, there’s no reason why you won’t be continuing to buy more as the price goes down.
00:25:02:21 – 00:25:05:29
Richard Carthon: And then you can dollar cost average your way all the way down.
00:25:06:26 – 00:25:16:06
Richard Carthon: Beverly. That’s that’s definitely a lot to take in. But to your point, if you have conviction, it’s good. Play the long game in the long run. You typically come out on top.
00:25:16:27 – 00:25:47:17
Richard Carthon: I would attest to that. Absolutely. You know, as someone who has tried to, you know, you try to talk market again. Day trading is just more than one of those things. It’s just kind of like fun to do when you get caught up in it. Know, like, it’s just exciting. It’s stress inducing, cause a lot of anxiety, but you know, it’s almost addictive. It’s fun to do. But I will tell you, like, my mom’s just put in money, you know, at certain points and made like infinitely more than I have. Just it’s like a buy and hold game almost always comes out on top. So the long trains, long trades tend to be more favorable.
00:25:47:19 – 00:26:05:00
Richard Carthon: But again, you got to pick the right projects, do your due diligence. And again, don’t don’t be buying something just because someone shilling it to go for in the subreddit. See what the community is about. See what kind of utility is behind it. And invest in things. Yeah, they don’t feel like they’re just a fad, right?
00:26:05:16 – 00:26:13:28
Richard Carthon: No, I think those are absolute great gems. And you know, as we kind of conclude here, man, like, what is the final thought that you want to leave with everyone listening here today?
00:26:14:26 – 00:26:44:27
Richard Carthon: Yeah, that’s great point. I’d say again, don’t let crypto kind of totally consume everything that you think and do. I mean, as as easy as it is, I mean, I get caught up to, you know, sometimes I’ll just like all I can think about is charts. All I want to do is go back to look at prices and it’s addictive, right? And again, like you said earlier, it’s it’s it’s a new space in the way that is 24-7, right? You can’t turn it off. You can’t, you can’t sleep on it. You wake up, it’s down 30 percent.
00:26:44:29 – 00:27:11:27
Richard Carthon: You’re like, How could I have predicted that you can’t have, right? So I think people just need to kind of take a step back and realize again just digits on a screen and whatever you’re going through. Ninety nine percent of the rest of us are going through it, too. So again, don’t forget and don’t don’t think, you know, I played this off wrong, and that’s a reflection on my part. You know, that’s just that’s just being human and we’ve all been there. So yeah, don’t worry about it. Don’t sweat it.
00:27:12:18 – 00:27:45:11
Richard Carthon: And a good reminder to join the communities and have people who have been there done that. You can speak through strategies, get second opinions and also just know that like, you’re not experiencing this thing alone because a lot of people think that when they’re going through this and a lot of people in their immediate circles can’t have empathy because they don’t necessarily understand it, find these communities that can. So, you know, potentially good community that you can join right now is the blockchain boys club. Make sure you check them out, especially when this NFT drops. Very soon, we’ll make sure to be pushing that out once it is available.
00:27:45:27 – 00:27:53:13
Richard Carthon: But again, Layton, can you tell us again one more time, all the different ways that people can connect with them and be ready for when this NFT drops?
00:27:54:12 – 00:28:10:13
Richard Carthon: Yeah, so again, we got a website. Blockchain Boys Club. That’s our site, and you’ll be able to link to our Twitter and Discord from there. And if you do use Discord or Discord as Discord, dogfood twin boys club and you should be able to join directly and in. Yeah.
00:28:10:23 – 00:28:41:22
