More than just money
My name is Albert Eberhardt, I am originally from Russia (Maili-Sai Kirgistan). I have spent many years of my life with little money. My parents moved with me to Germany and finally built a house. There I grew up and gained many different experiences.
I quickly realized that money has a certain influence on our lives. At the age of 18 I had experiences in the casino and became “addicted”, 6 years of my life I gambled money at the slot machines.
At the age of 24, I finally woke up and started making money in other ways. When I realized that I was making money by buying and selling, i.e. “trading”, I suddenly wanted to achieve more, I wanted to scale. After taking a lot of time to analyze all current asset classes, I decided not to invest in the traditional investment classes, such as commodities or real estate.
I was looking for something new and revolutionary. So I came across Bitcoin. When I made a transaction, I quickly noticed many advantages over paper money. The decentralized character impressed me the most. A world in which there is a payment system where everyone has the same rights. Just what I was looking for.
In 2017, Bitcoin’s value went to about $20,000. But in this massive movement there was a problem. The transactions could not be confirmed fast enough, which caused a transaction backlog. This in turn led to extremely high waiting times and high prices for users. Sometimes it took 3 weeks to confirm the transaction and sometimes you had to pay $50 for it.
A payment method with such problems simply cannot be money that the whole world can actively use. (Updates could of course change this view).
So I was looking for a money system that is fast and secure. That can withstand a mass rush. On my search I found the Gulden NLG.
- Great team in the GAB (Gulden Advisory Board)
- Only a limited number of NLG (when all are created approx. 1,6MrD)
- Very good user friendly wallet
- Easy to understand
- On Dactual.com you can see how the nodes are distributed. All the data I needed I could find.
- Witness (Get rewarded for confirming transactions)
- Mining with home PC
- Unknown project
- Small and transparent
Dutch people are known for their ability to trade and are generally progressive and innovative. Such a team can only be a winning team.
These and other points were and are the reasons why I decided to go for Gulden after all.
This crypto-currency is in my eyes the currency that I use, want to use and can well imagine how many other people in the world will do it. Gulden offers the complete mankind an access to a decentralized monetary system. A PC is enough to participate in it. It is and remains a long term and exciting project.
At the start of my journey in crypto I made mistakes of course. Once I bought ETH and sent it to a site that claimed to be a wallet platform. Of course I never saw my 1.55 ETH again.
With FOMO I bought Gulden and Iota at the top and sold some of them at a loss. In 2018 rationality returned to me and I understood a lot. So I decided not to jump back and forth anymore, but to decide ! & stay with it ! That was the motto.
I decided to stay with Gulden and as long as nothing changes in the safety I stay with the project with full soul. With no other crypto currency I can sleep as well as with Gulden in the wallet.
Now it is 2020 and I have learned a lot. Charts, news, rumors – all these things are just distractions. To see and to participate in the Gulden community is what matters to me. The past has made me stronger. I am ready for the next challenges.
Gulden… More than just money…
