Gentry early investment to crypto

Gentry told Cointelegraph this is when she bought crypto:

During the lockdown in early 2020. I purchased Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Link on Coinbase. Several times, I was close to giving up. I just want to make it easier for others to get into crypto.”

As a result of this early investment, Gentry also focused on learning about DeFi, which eventually led to her investing in altcoins.

Providing educational content on her website, the entrepreneur acknowledges the steep learning curve involved in crypto, adding:

I am also presenting seminars to educate the general public on navigating this space and the types of things to watch out for when searching for good NFT projects or DeFi tokens, as well as how to quickly detect scams or rug pulls.”

Genotry’s daughter and business partner interest in crypto

Genotry’s daughter and business partner Imani told Cointelegraph that her friends are becoming more interested in crypto. She said:

“I find it interesting that people follow trends – everyone makes their own projects & creates 10,000 collections because they see how things work.”

“If you are considering investing in cryptocurrency, the chance to gain financial freedom is well worth watching a few educational crypto YouTube videos or reading a book on the topic.”
