Crypto Clothing Review TCmerch

A couple weeks back @tc_merch on Twitter contacted me and asked me to review some of their clothing and designs. When they said they would send a few samples to check out I was absolutely delighted. The Dood loves sporting cryptocurrency related clothing. It’s a great way to meet other like-minded cryptocurrency folks, and also start the crypto conversation with curious folks wondering what it’s all about.

Their shipping was pretty quick and a few days after we talked a really nice sized box arrived at my shop. To my surprise, it was filled with all kinds of t-shirts and a hoodie from tcmerch.io! Everything arrived packaged neatly and professionally.

Everything arrived individually wrapped and professionally packed.

As soon as I began pulling the shirts from their individually wrapped bags, I could tell they were using quality shirts for their designs. The material of the t-shirts was very soft, with a nice feel to them. I’ve ordered flimsy t-shirts online in the past, and these are not those t-shirts. They have a soft cottony feel, and you can immediately tell that they’re made of quality material. 100% cotton American Apparel t-shirts!

100% cotton American Apparel t-shirts. Quality stuff.

The hoodie was also made of quality material. The Dood’s a pretty big guy. I’m a little ashamed to say that over the last few years, I’ve put on more than a few pounds sitting behind the computer staring at crypto charts all day. It’s sometimes difficult for me to find clothes that fit well. I ordered the 2X and it fits just like I want a hoodie to fit. I’m 6′ 2″ and 265 pounds. It lays nicely over my waistline and covered up that beer belly. The hoodie is also 100% cotton American Apparel.

100% cotton American Apparel litecoin hoodie. Show your love and spread the knowledge! Wear it proudly.

The decal quality is great on the font designs. I love the slogans and the fonts are bold and crisp regardless of the shirt color. Again, if you’re looking to strike up the crypto conversation while you’re out in public these shirts help do that for you. Great conversation starter.

Another favorite. The Dood’s a big blocker and proud. The white box near the collar is just a bar code sticker. I should of removed it before taking the image.

As far as the graphic designs, they were all decent quality too. Definitely comparable to other crypto shirts and hoodies I’ve ordered online. I already sent one through the wash a couple times and the decals are staying bright and crisp.

We’ve all been there. When there’s blood in the streets it’s time to buy. I’m a crypto trader, not a photographer. For better images make sure to stop by their page and check out some of their other designs.

Here’s another one I love.

How fun would it be to show up at a local crypto meetup where nobody knows you wearing this? LMAO! I’ll probably be ordering this one!

Bitcoin Bart! This is one of my favorites. I’ll be wearing this all the time.

The cryptocurrency unity design.

The Dood is no maximalist. I really love this design. We’re all in this together! Show your love of cryptocurrency with this really cool unity design.

You can see more of these awesome designs here.

The folks over at TCmerch told me to include promo code “NEWYEAR” to receive 30% off if anyone is interested in ordering.

Well, that’s all folks! If you want to see any more of these fun crypto designs, you’ll have to stop by their page. Thanks for reading, and happy trading!

Disclaimer: This was not a paid review. TC Merch asked me to review their clothes and I did. They sent a few designs they selected for my review, and I looked them over and posted my honest opinion of them. Hope you enjoyed the review and found this information useful. 

Cryptopia Cryptocurrency Exchange Has Been Compromised.

Looks like Cryptopia may have been compromised. Early this morning Coindesk reported on the story. www.coindesk.com…

I went to the website and confirmed the site is indeed in maintenance mode!

cyrptopia maintenance mode message

Reminiscent of the Cryptsy hack. Cryptopia goes into maintenance mode as reports surface that the exchange had been compromised.

Searching their Twitter I discovered this tweet confirming the story.

Cryptopia also posted a link to the local police citing an investigation by their local law enforcement.

For the most part, Cryptopia has always acted honorably in the past. The Dood holds a small amount of cryptocurrency on their exchange. It’s just starting to sink in that this could be a substantial loss for me. I just avoided losing funds to the Cryptsy hack about a week before they posted the same ominous message! I’ve always expected this would happen sooner or later, but for now, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt and staying positive.  Hopefully, things will work out for all involved and this won’t be a total loss for myself or anyone else trading on that exchange.

 

Started The Week With A Little Trading.

As I mentioned on Twitter last week, I think I’m going to start posting some of my buy / sells on my blog.  For the most part, this is to help me keep track of my buys and sells. With some of the exchanges not keeping order history for longer than a few months, I’m using this as a gauge to quickly check prices.

I am not a financial advisor. This is not meant as financial advice. This is just The Dood, doing The Dood.

The only thing I sold so far today was a little Tron TRX at .00000669 Still holding a nice bag, just thought I’d take some profits. If it goes up, I’ll sell more, if it goes down, I’ll buy back eventually.

Currently accumulating:

WAX .00000953
DTA  .00000024
POLY .00003332
DRGN .00002336
TEL .00000010
SNM .00000573
FTC .00000457
NXT .00000728
IGNIS .00000439
PPC .00015817
BAY .00000201

Bought back some MANA .00001021

My big gamble for the day was doubling my position of SNOV .00000034
Hoping for a pump and I may completely exit that market.

Currently swing trading the volatility of BCH, LTC, ETH & ZEC for USD. HODLING BTC, and trying to build my USD.

Remember, The Dood is not a financial advisor and nothing here is meant as financial advice. Please seek a duly licensed professional for financial advice, not some jackass on the internet who refers to himself as The Dood.

Interesting Tron TRX Review

Tron has taken a lot of flack since its introduction. I thought this was a pretty fair review of the technology. If you ever wanted to find out more about this controversial cryptocurrency, I found this to be not only fair, but also a very in depth review. Explains solidity, PoS, and a lot of the other technical aspects of this project.

Happy New Year From The Dood

Happy New Year.

Like many in the crypto space, I’m happy to leave 2018 behind. We started 2018 enthusiastic and hopeful, only to slowly watch the price decline over the entire year. Some of us took record gains, while others bought the top and watched as the value of our investments slowly dwindled over time.

This is how markets work. What takes years to build and tumble in the stock market happens in mere months with cryptocurrency. Now we play the waiting game. Looking at charts for levels of support, watching trade volume closely. All of us looking for some sign the bottom is in and the bear market is over.

I honestly expected a correction in 2018. It was inevitable. I expected a bottom around $10k and my worst case scenario was somewhere around $5K. I took some profits near the top, bought some new toys, re-furnished the house, then slowly bought the dips on the way down. It’s important to take profits in this game. It’s why we trade!

I bought the dips slowly and built my dream crypto portfolio. Watched as the price and value slowly dwindled. It was painful, but this is a long-term game. I continue buying, building, and waiting. That’s my game plan for 2019. Build strong positions in strong coins. What goes up eventually goes down but the reverse is also true. These are market cycles and nothing in this life is permanent including bull/bear markets.

Although I feel terrible for the people that bought into the media hype of early 2018. Better days are coming for the strong handed and brave. I’m going to look at 2019 as a rebuilding year for me. I’ll continue to look for strong projects, and continue to build my portfolio. Watch for levels of support and resistance. Swing trade when I can and continue to build BTC, USD, and alts. Now is the time to prepare for the next bull run. Those that take advantage of the bear market will reap the rewards of the bull run!

2018 was an incredible year filled with emotion. 2019 is the year of rebuilding. Stay positive, stay focused, and always look to the future with optimism. Wishing you all a healthy, prosperous and happy 2019! Happy New Year from The Dood! Let’s make crypto great again and make 2019 another great year to remember!
