I am conservative and my strategy is conservative too. However, you can take away some ideas to save the money you gain in this cycle.

I love sick gains. Who does not? However, you can read a lot of stories where people tell you how they lost all the fortune they have made in 2017.

So let me tell you my exit plan. This is not top-secret nor the silver bullet to sell at the top. This is just a conservative strategy to preserve as much money in this alt-season as you can.

This is not financial advice. Do your own research and do not blame others.

Why is an exit strategy important?

It started in… Well, this depends on when you feel like it started. Maybe it hasn’t started for you yet. For me, it was the 1st of March.

In this article, I share some of my thoughts on some coins which could possibly bring you some gains. But remember: this is not financial advice as I am not an advisor. Always do your own research on the coins, decide if you want to invest in them, and have a plan — and stick to that plan.

I will write extra introductory articles on some coins I mention in this article…


I signed up for a 3commas Pro account and this is my review after the first month.

General introduction

First of all, I’ve chosen this platform because it provides automatic trading options for various accounts like Binance, Coinbase, KuCoin, and 20 more, and you have smart trade options too like setting Stop Loss and Take Profit at the same time for your orders (I know that Binance has the option to do One Cancels Other orders) and it has a nice visualization where you see how your trade is set-up, and you can easily modify the parameters.

My main trading platform is Binance — JFYI. However, I have some dust over at KuCoin, and I am running a test…

Mine Cryptocurrency on your mobile phone

OK, today I will look at “The First Digital Currency You Can Mine On Your Phone”. This is something you can ease your FOMO with. If you happen to feel you’re missing out on Bitcoin and all the mining stuff where you need a lot of hardware and electricity to mine some money, you can join the Pi network.

Currently, because we’re a lot of miners (reached 10 million), you cannot generate as much currency as at the beginning, as the mining speed halves after a specific user amount…


I am definitely against pictures and videos “starring” underaged youths. But the economic potential is in hands reach. This article contains my initial thoughts.

You probably already have heard about the New York Times article about underaged porn-workers at PornHub. …


This is not an essay about the topic — no in-depth generalization. I am by no means a psychologist nor someone who works with the human mind or soul. I am just me and this is my story. Or something like that.

As the title already tells you, I am writing about something that is currently bugging me — yes, I have not overcome this angst yet but I am on a good way. At least I feel so.

I read a lot. I haven’t in the past but since I am commuting to work (1 hour by train in…

Disclaimer: I was asked by V. to read her book and provide an honest review and share my opinion. That’s what you can read here. Actually, this is an ongoing author-reader relationship between her and me, and I am always open to give my opinion on her books. And if you’re asking why is this relationship ongoing? Read her other books on self-publishing:

Because Self-Publishing Works: Everything I Learned About How to Publish a Book and Because Self-Publishing Works: Everything I Learned About How to Market a Book

Now let’s go to the review itself. The book resonated with me…


opening Keynote by Pamela Gay

OK, let's get started with my opinionated and heavily subjective review of the talks I attended at Craft Conf in 2019. And what is better to kick-off with the opening keynote?

You can watch the recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjbs51QB7LQ

Well, I was not impressed. To summarize the talk: we do machine learning but the current algorithms are not as good as they should be. And what I took away is that scientists still need a lot of manpower to analyze the images their hardware captures because our code is not as good as it should be :)

OK, nothing offensive has…


Budapest, May 9–10 2019, https://craft-conf.com/

This is a photo taken of my notebook with the conference logo.

This year I signed up just for the conference days because of private matters. And I did not see any appealing workshops I want to make. However, two days of this conference are worth the money too.

Let me give you a brief review as I remember now. Maybe I’ll add more if I realize I missed something. Or feel free to ask questions if you’re interested in something.

The wetter was horrible on Thursday. It was cold and rainy. And I had to reschedule my plan after attending the first talk in the Orange Tent location. It was freezing…


I abandoned this project. I am guilty — and could tell you about my reasons but I won’t. At least not now.

However, in the meantime, the book got its shape and is almost finished. Because it is published at The Pragmatic Programmers, it is available now as an ebook: https://pragprog.com/book/jbtracer/the-ray-tracer-challenge

The link, as you can see, is no affiliate link. This means I won’t get any money if you click it and buy something from the store.

But I have the plan to continue this project when I find the time between work, life, and private projects. Maybe I’ll start over with a different language for good when the book is available completely.
