Number One

When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you do is check to see how much the market changed while you slept. This is one I find myself doing on a regular basis. It doesn’t matter what notifications are on my phone, I always end up checking to make sure my portfolio didn’t tank… and to make sure Dogecoin didn’t jump to $1.00 miraculously.

Number Two

You calculate the price of products in terms of how much crypto you could buy, instead of buying that item. Again, this is a pretty common habit I catch myself doing quite often. I’m not sure whether this means I’m obsessed with crypto, or if I would rather spend my money on something a bit more exciting.

Number Three

You bring up crypto in conversations even when literally nobody asked. For example, you are talking with your friend about his new puppy. When you suddenly criticize his dog for not being a Shiba Inu. Although I don’t find myself in this situation often, I have a hard time resisting the urge to make Dogecoin jokes when I see a dog. One piece of advice if you’re in the market for a new dog, get a Shiba Inu… or better yet instead of buying a dog. Put all of your money into Dogecoin.

Number Four

When people ask what you do for fun, you tell them “I’m into crypto”. Although I have tried the exact same line to pickup girls, it is not very effective and I don’t recommend it. However beware of who you say this around, I once accidentally peaked the interest of a fellow crypto nerd. All I can say is that I had a very lengthy conversation, so lengthy in fact that I literally became bored of talking about crypto. In order to end the conversation I had to purposely pee my pants and ask to be excused… I was followed to the bathroom, where our conversation about crypto continued.
