For most Cryptocurrency proponents, it is challenging to live without the coins in their life. Although this is hard to imagine among those who don’t engage in the trade, it is as a hard habit to quit as doing drugs. Given that the sector is unstable and prices keep changing every second, many Crypto traders spend most of their time studying the trends and trading. Shortly, they become addicted.
Some Crypto Traders Have Quit
After incurring huge losses and realizing that Crypto trading is becoming a problem, some traders have chosen to quit. One such trader admitted he is quitting the industry after spending 5 years. The trader confessed that he is tired of spending most of his time behind a screen in his house. He now wants to get out, look for a job and friends in a society he has ignored for so long.
To most traders, the thought of quitting Cryptocurrency is anathema. Crypto trading is comparable to being a soccer fan where you end up becoming a die hand follower of a club even when the results are not so good. Once you decide to buy a virtual currency, it’s something you are in for life. Unfortunately, some people, either because of greed or because of lack of understanding become so much used to the habit that it becomes a burden in their life.
Why Quitting Crypto Is A Challenge
For those who join Cryptocurrencies for profits, it is easy to quit after failing to realize their goals. However, it is a different story for those who see the potential of the digital assets and enjoy the financial freedom linked to the coins. Importantly, not all those who have quit the industry had done so because of losses. Some people have become so immersed in Crypto space.
One freelancer, who admitted to having been in Crypto full time for the last six months said he has not yet figured out what he will be doing as he plans to exit in the next few months. He revealed that he was attracted to the virtual currencies in 2013 and is now feeling the strain of being in the market for so long.
