What attracted Andrew to cryptocurrency
Though Bitcoin first came to Andrew’s attention in 2012, he did not pull the trigger until January of 2017. Using Coinbase, he bought a bitcoin and several Ethereum. Though originally just lucky, the quick gains led him to research the use and value of cryptocurrency. Since then, he has turned into a believer and advocate of its value. Living in Colombia and Brazil for a year and seeing inflation almost live solidified his position.
