Tell us about yourself.

Hi! I’m Garry. I stay in Penang and I love to travel around Penang Island because it has many beautiful places, scenery and also FOOD!

Describe what you do as a Luno Educator in one sentence.

I help to create awareness about cryptocurrency.

Why did you choose to become a Luno Educator?

I became a Luno Educator because I want to share with people that Luno is reliable and most importantly, that it is recognised by the local government. One day, I saw that Luno’s Community Facebook page was recruiting Educators. I submitted my application, completed a one day course and a demo session and was selected! I chose this because there was a lot of news about people getting scammed and losing their money to swindlers who used Bitcoin as bait. I want to educate people about what Bitcoin is so they won’t be easily cheated. 

How would you define financial literacy?

Financial literacy to me is dividing the use of money effectively and making it grow as well.

Why should others care about financial literacy?

Financial literacy makes sure you are prepared to face emergency situations with less difficulty.

How did you develop your own financial literacy?

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon so I could see the value of money. In that situation, it’s a basic understanding that a big portion of money is used for what is needed to survive first, and whatever is left can be used for entertainment.

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

Equip yourself with knowledge and only put in money that you are prepared to lose.

What would you say to somebody on the fence about Bitcoin?

Nobody knows what the future holds but it’s better you do it and it fails than to not do it and it succeeds without you.
