Being a noob isn’t easy. Being called a ‘noob’ isn’t easy. (At least make it ‘newbie’ or something!)
When I think back to when I was new to the cryptocurrency space in December 2017, I remember the thing I wanted most was to know who was reliable, who was trustworthy, and who was to be avoided at all costs.
It’s a cliché, but as much as we all talk about what we would tell our younger selves if we could go back in time, I think that nowhere is that truer than in crypto. I don’t mean the specifics of trades and tokens we should have bought and sold when and how much for – that is the path to gambler-madness, for obviously hindsight is 20:20 vision. No, I mean general principles, good practice, and good company. (For more on good company, see my next post on the HODL Cult.)
And then, having become more experienced as a crypto-trader, investor, and observer, I had accumulated lots of helpful resources, but they were spread out around cyberspace, and I had a long list of them in my browser bookmarks menu, which I would religiously sift through each morning before attending to the day’s business.
With these things in view, I had the idea of creating this website – coin❖trellis – as a way of bringing helpful and reliable crypto-resources under one roof. I wanted to build a site which I would want to use myself, and I have been doing every day.
While our premium content, the crypto day-trader’s chart grids, have been borne out of the frustration of not finding anything comparable existing in the marketplace, the rest of coin❖trellis evolved as it became apparent that the market moves so quickly that by the time you have gone around checking all of your sources, you almost need to start all over again as things have changed since you commenced your reading.
What you really is want is a kind of master control panel in front of you, giving you an overview of crypto action in real time and without you having to curate all of the resources yourself.
So, welcome. Here it is!
