I interrupt my small series of post for this important one from Ray - please read it.

As CEO of Paxful, I’m responsible for the Bitcoin of over 11 million people. I take great pride in protecting our community’s funds and, unlike others in our industry, I have never touched our customers’ money. 

My sole responsibility is to help and serve you. That’s why today I’m messaging all of our users to move your Bitcoin to self-custody. You should not keep your savings on Paxful, or any exchange, and only keep what you trade here.

Why? For far too long people have trusted others to hold money on our behalf but—like we saw with the banks in 2008 and recently with FTX—you’re at the mercy of these custodians and their morals 😓

However, Bitcoin has given us the chance to finally be in control and we must take it. Rest assured, if you do wish to keep your Bitcoin on Paxful, your funds are safe with us but remember—only keep what you want to trade! 🙏

Why do I share this post?

I think Ray again clearly points out the basic idea of Bitcoin and most altcoins: independence and self-determination.
They have fallen into our laps through cryptocurrencies. Many need to relearn how to use them responsibly.
Yes, you can make mistakes, but I'm here to point out the roughest ones to you so you can avoid them. But even if you fall, you have to be ready to get back up. You can't expect to conquer the "cryptoverseum" without getting a bloody nose. But you know what? It's worth every step in this direction.

as always:

before you invest in crypto – invest in yourself
