Wondering if the crypto space is right for you? Travin Keith, a long time member of the space since 2013 and has been working full time in the industry since 2016 in a variety of positions, roles, and even locations, will be going over various aspects of the industry, such as what to expect and how to get started, to help people decide whether they should take the leap or not. Though a passionate member of the community, he does understand that it’s not for everyone, and considers working in the space to be one of the worst financial decisions of his life, but at the same time, one of the best decisions he’s ever made.
