This Is What Happens When You Mistake Risky for Safe [VIDEO]

2개월 전


I was the fish at a table of sharks.

After a humbling loss in Vegas, I had an epiphany.

I’m no poker professional, but I’ve made out fairly well in a few high stakes tournaments, both online and in casinos.

I’ve also talked and written quite a bit about the power of fear, how it affects all of us as individuals, as well as the pervasive culture of fear throughout society at large.

Yet, no matter how confident or aware one may be, the claws of doubt and dismay can latch onto the best of us, seemingly at any time.

The combination of skill and luck is what makes poker and many other games so fascinating, and what keeps players coming back for more.

It’s not quite the same when it comes to investing and cryptocurrency markets, neither is it all that much different.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

In poker, life and finance, you need to take risks to succeed, but is it always helpful to be fearless when gambling?

While walking to a cannabis shop for my wife (times are changing), I reflected on the lessons to be learned from this experience in Las Vegas.

Check out the Video:

I’ll return to Sin City in July for two great events! The first is FreedomFest, where I’ll participate in several panels to debate blockchain tech, anarchy, and financial markets.

You can use the code TDV on the FreedomFest site (here) to get a big discount off the ticket price.

Immediately following that, I’ll be at AnarchoVegas, a new event with several great friends and remarkable people, including G. Edward Griffin, Larken Rose, Carey Wedler, Benny Wills, and more!


You can use the code DOLLARVIGILANTE to receive the speaker discount for AnarchoVegas tickets (here).

The goal of this conference is to empower individuals to help build a better world. We each have a responsibility to do something to spread the message of freedom.

All of us are better off when we listen to, learn from and educate one another. Viva Voluntaryism!

Vegas is WAY different than it used to be. People just openly smoke weed all over the place now.

Just wanted to say keep up the good work Jeff. If it weren't for you I would have never joined Steemit!

There’s a risk in every thing we do, especially in this day and age, from stock markets where so many have their life savings to retire, and those who are saving some silver gold and crypto.
Seems we all are trying to be as prepared as one can diversifying in all categories.
Looks like your ideology towards crypto and so much more helps everyone see and learn even though there is some risks, there is some very nice rewards,
Thanks for keeping our eyes wide open, and staying informed of what’s really going on in the world.
