Let’s be honest, it’s really a right of passage when you receive text messages from your friends or family asking you about crypto. These texts are usually triggered by a Bitcoin bull-run, or a mainstream news hit piece about the technology dominating the news cycle.
Hell, you may have even been on the other side of the equation, asking a more seasoned friend dumb questions along the way. There’s not shame in it, the best thing to do is just smile at some of these hilarious and heart warming cryptocurrency related texts.
This first exchange is more heart warming than hilarious. For many of us, our significant other may not be as involved in our crypto antics as we are. Seeing them come around and be truly interested in the technology, or at least open to objective discussion is a thing to get pumped for!
