"Why or why not?"
I am 85 - 85 years YOUNG. 👶
too old - Never too old to learn new stuff. Never. 🤓
I am to old period. - The quest of learning never ends. Age should not stop ya. 💪
Not sure how to answer. I’m 65. First semester in college I took Quantitative Methods. Each line of code on one punchcard. Then the stack of cards was taken to a printing office in the same building where it took a day or two to get results. Wish I had gone further down the road of computers. Now? I’d be willing to dip my toes in blockchain, but I’m not sure my background has prepared me for that dip. - To be honest, many of us started from ground zero. No background is required, truly. All you need is an insatiable hunger for knowledge. 😋
Awesome information - Why thank you! 😬
Fascinated by the industry but at 73, rather late to be taking on a new field. - Hmm perhaps you could do it for fun? 🤔
i do think so, its going to be the hottest thing in coming time & demand for blockchain engineers will sky rocket in coming times.. having said so it is not necessary to have a formal degree in blockchain.. one can study blockchain passively & also keep oneself updated to blockchain space to reap the benefit. - That is true! I'm a firm believer in self-directed learning. Unfortunately more often than not, if you want a job, many companies require a formal education certificate/ degree. 🙄
Coz I'm drawn like a connection - Lmao. 😂
Internet 3.0 right? Education is key - No doubt. 🔑
For some strange reason, at a young 76, it doesn't appear on my priority nor bucket lists! - If you must already lead an exciting enough life. 😎
I like the idea of everyone being on equal footing when it comes to bettering their life. Blockchain helps in that respect by cutting out the middleman, lightening the fees and costs of using a bank or financial institution, and keeping track of every transaction through a network of thousands, thus cutting fraud and thievery. Blockchain is the wave of the future, and will change the future for the better, for millions! - Well said! It's a burgeoning industry for sure. 📈
I’m to old, I’m retired. - Well deserved, I'm sure! 🙌
I'll be a little south of mid 60's when this is out, if I was 20 years younger I'd seriously think about it - Never too old, my dear friend.
Warren Buffet once said the best investment is an investment in yourself. I believe that blockchain is the future and therefor yes I would pursui a degree in blockchain technology. - Good point. It would be best to start now considering how still very new this space is. 😊
Would be very interested, as I would also look to try and help tie in industries that need the stability and transparency (eg. cannabis industry, clean energy, recycling etc.). The demand for capable and knowledgeable people would only increase as we progress, as with all things. - That's true. Blockchain can do wonders for these industries. 😀
I simply find it very interesting and I do believe it is the future - Glad to have you onboard this train with all of us. 🙌
I got a couple of degrees and can't be bothered getting a third one. - Smartie. 🤓
Hellllzzz yeah, so I can work as a freelancer for all those companies who want something something with blockchain, but don't really know what blockchain is. And let them pay me in crypto for consulting them that it doesn't make any sense to use blockchain for keeping track of how much coffee their employees drink. - Will no doubt open some doors for ya. Pretty sure you'll be able to land some gigs with a blockchain degree. The field requires you to learn about many disciplines like statistics, computer science, economics etc. 🤯
I know they say that your never too old to learn but at 47 and hoping ill be retired by 50 on my crypto bags there's no way i'd put myself through a degree even if it was free. - True. Perhaps once we land on the moon 😉 you could do it for fun/ out of passion.
I'm in no matter what. Been looking at what available for a while now. - That's awesome! Do share what courses you're currently looking at! 😀
