First of all I'm very convinced that Bitcoin has the potential to be future money, to replace gold. The more I learn the more I'm convinced about that.

I started because I thought I can connect being in crypto + in tech together doing what I liked the best: to do soft. Of course additionally I considered myself being not just a regular programmer but at the worst case CTO :) Anyway I believed and still believe that the current role of crypto exchanges - is to introduce people to the world of cryptocurrency. They do millions on fees as you said - but still their role for me is quite important at the stage we are right now (adoption). However, I don't believe it will be forever.

Taking into consideration your bad experiences I recommend you to not deal too much with crypto bullshit, because it's quite easy to do so - there is a lot of that. Focus on Bitcoin (I read now Bitcoin Standard and it's great book) as the future of money. Then maybe Ehtereum as the global computer.

Thanks for comment!
