Tell us about yourself.
I’m Amer from Pasir Gudang Johor. I love reading, video editing and exploring new opportunities.
Describe what you do as a Luno Educator in one sentence.
Educating the mass market about cryptocurrency.
Why did you choose to become a Luno Educator?
I believe crypto is here to stay so I was searching for a platform where I can contribute and be part of the crypto community. That’s where I stumbled across the Luno Educator Program.
How would you define financial literacy?
It’s not just how you make money but most importantly it’s how you manage your money or cash flow.
Why should others care about financial literacy?
It’s the key for everlasting wealth creation.
How did you develop your own financial literacy?
I was lucky because when I graduated from university, I chose to work in the financial services industry. I met a lot of people, especially middle-aged people who are still struggling with debt and financial management. From there I started to take my financial education and literacy seriously.
What advice do you have for people at the beginning of their crypto journey?
Don’t develop FOMO (“fear-of-missing-out”) and only invest in what you understand.
What would you say to somebody on the fence about Bitcoin?
Start investing with a small portion of your money. Get a taste of holding it. Further down the line you can always learn and slowly start to increase the portion of it.
