Crypto Money Lab

Hey there, I’m Alex and this is my blog about cryptocurrencies, decentralized systems, blockchain, bitcoin, altcoins and technology in general.

This project is called a Crypto Money Lab because I experiment with different cryptocurrencies and services and then analyse the results for better understanding the whole idea and the possibilities it gives.

Here is some personal advice for beginners in cryptocurrency

  1. Keep your cryptocurrency safe: do not keep any currencies in exchanges. Always control your private keys yourself. Use a hardware wallet, paper or software wallet.
  2. Before investing your cryptocurrency in any project, do your research, see who’s behind the project, understand the technical aspect of what they’re doing.
  3. Invest in cryptocurrencies as much as you can afford to loose. When you do invest, get emotionally detatched from that money.
  4. If you’re considering to get involved or invest in some project, always do your own research and at least check if they’re listed on

About me

I am a programmer with over 20 years of experience, currently working as a freelance IT Consultant.
I’ve been involved in cryptocurrencies since 2011. I liked the ideas and the technology behind blockchain and bitcoin in particular so much, that I was promoting it among my friends and clients. With each cryptocurrency hype and significant price changes in bitcoin, ethereum or any major altcoin, my phone and messengers explode with many different questions about investing in cryptocurrencies, trading, mining, lending, etc.
So decided to put up this little website to share my thoughts, knowledge and experience on cryptocurrencies, blockchain, bitcoin, ethereum, altcoins and decentralized systems in general.
I’m not a financial advisor in any way and on this website I only share and recommend the services that I’ve been using myself and haven’t noticed any signs of them being a scam.
