Learn the technical specs as much as you can. In crypto, this means spend your free time doing deep dives on how software works, how platforms are built, how blockchains work (not just on a surface level — learn how hashing works, how cryptography works, the different types of algorithms like SHA-256 and X11). Read the long documents published by the SEC and any hearings and other legal entities. Basically, become versed in the tedious, “boring,” technical stuff. If you know that stuff, you’re ahead of most. The tedious stuff is where the money is, it’s where the work will be in the future. Go there.
