Tell us about yourself
Hi, I’m Azlan from Pahang, currently working & staying at Selangor. I like to play badminton, learning new technology, and exploring new things and opportunities.
Describe what you do as a Luno Educator in one sentence.
I am part of the movement to educate people about the basics of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Blockchain, and how to use Luno safely to invest in crypto.
Why did you choose to become a Luno Educator?
Crytpo is a unique and interesting technology. The Luno Educator program is an opportunity for me to learn more about it and reveals gaps in my existing knowledge.
How would you define financial literacy?
For me, financial literacy is the soft skills to manage our own money prudently, and it is a continuous and lifelong journey of learning.
Why should others care about financial literacy?
It equips us with the knowledge and skills we need to manage money effectively.
How did you develop your own financial literacy?
I started to learn a lot on how to manage my own money when studying for a degree at university. I made some mistakes on spending and budgeting during studying, and learnt from the mistakes.
When I started working, I learnt about personal finance, investment, and proper budgeting via multiple resources such as online articles, blog, youtube videos, books, and free webinar. It’s a lifelong journey and it’s still ongoing.
What advice do you have for people at the beginning of their crypto journey?
1. Invest in yourself first (equip ourselves with knowledge), then only jump into crypto investment.
2. Only use your extra money to invest, and start with a small amount. Be extra careful on the money management and risk-reward analysis.
What would you say to somebody who is not sure whether to invest into Bitcoin or not?
Invest in what you know and understand only. So, give time to yourself to learn the basics of Bitcoin, and reconsider to invest later once you have learnt about Bitcoin properly.
