OPINION: Is Getting into Bitcoin Worth It?




market

As a fourteen-year-old high school student who has to balance studying for a test and writing up an article, you’d assume my answer definitely has to be a yes, but say you had yourself quite a debt, and you’re flat broke with not a single peso in your pocket. Could bitcoin save you from such a crisis?

Well, yes. As long as you have skill and talent you can pretty much at least get somewhere in paying your debts. You’re a graphics artist? Why not show off your work and try to get hired by an indie game development team or a web developer needing resources? Think you can write music or voice act? How about HTML or CSS? There are many things you can get into to try and pay off your theoretical debt.

So yes, you can use it to get yourself a few extra bills in your pocket, but you shouldn’t exactly depend solely on bitcoin to pay for all your bills. Sure, if your income from bitcoin is really that big, why not, right? Still, bitcoin is better as a backup plan, if not just another bonus method of income. You’re better off doing your actual job than do a bitcoin job at the moment, but we’re not really answering the question.

For a very serious question, there’s really no serious answer that I can give. Startups that were successful would quickly jump in and say yes, and meanwhile bankers that lose from bitcoin’s growth would just say no. The typical bitcoin community member would try to get you to jump into the bandwagon and join in, while there’s always the guy who claims bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme (which I seriously have to keep saying every now and then, no it’s not!).

The truth in the end is that the question is way too broad to be answered; yet it’s still a very common query asked by newcomers who just recently discovered bitcoin and are interested. So take it from a young startup just making his first steps into the bitcoin community. I’m just a student, and I get to do what I like and want and for it I’m earning money and making friends.

From what I have gone through, to the people I’ve met, yes. Bitcoin is worth getting into. As long as you can persevere and work hard, something will surely come out of your bitcoin career.
