Tell us about yourself

Hi there! I’m Boris, a legal “drug dealer” (aka Pharmacist) in Malaysia. Aside from my profession, I enjoy learning about different financial assets and good coffee sessions with people.

Describe what you do as a Luno Educator in one sentence

An easier and interactive way of learning crypto.

Why did you choose to become a Luno Educator?

Financial literacy, let alone crypto literacy, is very low in Malaysia. With that, my aim during the tenure is to bridge the financial & cryptocurrency literacy gap to all fellow Malaysians using this platform provided.

How would you define financial literacy?

Skills in managing personal finances effectively for lifetime financial security.

Why should others care about financial literacy?

Let’s be real, money if used properly is a good instrument to allow one to be flexible in life, relatively less stress and be able to experience life differently. So, is this what you long for?

How did you develop your own financial literacy?

As a person coming from a typical Asian-Chinese family, we’re been taught to study hard to score good grades in order to get a high paying job and live happily ever after. However, things like understanding of tax, different investment vehicles are not taught in our culture and formal education system.

I develop my knowledge in managing money via different channels such as e-learning from various digital platforms (Youtube, podcasts, websites etc), attending financial courses and mingling with experienced people. To date I’m still honing financial skills as financial literacy is a lifelong journey. 

What advice do you have for people at the beginning of their crypto journey?

As with any new investment, always fully understand what are the underlying risks that you might be exposed to and the potential rewards before blindly jumping into it. Invest responsibly so you can sleep well at night.

What would you say to somebody who is not sure whether to invest into Bitcoin or not?

When you are not sure, start slow by learning the basics of cryptocurrency. Join my classes to kick start your journey!
