1. HODL your OWN private keys. Too many people still leave their BTC on exchanges. Rookie mistake!
2. Run and use your OWN full node. Itโ€™s not hard.
3. Invest in a Bitcoin hardware wallet. I recommend Coldcard Wallet.
4. Attend Bitcoin meetups, and meet Bitcoiners in meatspace and/or VR. This has been one of the best experiences for me. There are tons of brilliant minds out there!
5. Mix your coins. If you donโ€™t care about your privacy, you lose your right to it.
6. OPSEC OPSEC OPSEC. Never brag about your stash. Bad actors are everywhere.
7. Ignore shitcoins. They are all distractions.
8. Avoid trading. The odds are against you.
9. Dollar cost averaging. Youโ€™ll never buy in at the perfect price.
10. Help out newbies. You were once in their shoes.
11. Lower your time preference and live within your means. This makes HODLing much easier.
12. Listen to podcasts. I highly recommend Stephan Livera & Tales from the Crypt.
13. Learn to code and contribute to our revolution!
