Tell us about yourself.
Hi, my name is Meor. Some people took that as a joke and called me ‘Me or You’, but that never bothers me as long as people keep recalling and remembering my name from time to time. Perak is my hometown and I have always loved to play chess and read motivational and strategical books in business.
Describe what you do as a Luno Educator in one sentence.
I create awareness around crypto by teaching others through simple concepts.
Why did you choose to become a Luno Educator?
It’s my responsibility as a licensed financial planner to make people understand what they need to know about the financial world including this ‘jargon heavy’ crypto world (from the viewpoint of some people).
I want to make a big contribution towards education in the crypto space. I submitted my short interview clip for the Luno Educator Program. Even though I was the last person to submit the application, I was gladly selected! The rest is history.
How would you define financial literacy?
It’s a variety of important financial skills and concepts. People who are financially literate are generally less vulnerable to financial fraud. A strong financial literacy foundation can help support various life goals, such as saving for education or retirement, using debt responsibly, and running a business.
Why should others care about financial literacy?
It is because financial literacy is more than just having a savings account. It is the cognitive understanding of financial components and skills such as budgeting, investing, borrowing, taxation, and personal financial management.
How did you develop your own financial literacy?
Firstly, I set my financial goals, then developed my daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly budget and tried to stick to it. Lastly, I became familiar with financial concepts and learnt how to build my own financial portfolio.
Was it hard? Absolutely. Extremely. Yes. But, there is no other way to do it.
What advice do you have for people at the beginning of their crypto journey?
Keep learning and be financially disciplined.
When people lack any kind of investment knowledge, they actually act just like a gambler. They end up either gaining profits or losing all of their investments in trading.
Therefore, you should only risk what you’re willing to lose (taking into account the knowledge you learn & financial discipline you practice).
What would you say to somebody on the fence about Bitcoin?
You have to be mentally prepared (when the graph goes up or down). Stay optimistic about Bitcoin. Finally, always go for regulated crypto platforms. Crypto is already considered a high-risk investment. Making sure you are with a regulated platform will only benefit you.
