Hello MahaDao community
It would be great to get to know more about each of you, so I’ve created this thread to do just that - introduce yourself to the community.
So my name is Michael, and I have been with the MahaDao community since late 2020 as an early adopter. I first stumbled upon the project when it was first covered by 'Ivan on tech', and essentially came to the community as a speculator. I quickly established myself as "the charts guy" while sharing my trade ideas and analysis. Prior to this I have spent several years as a trader with a focus on technical analysis methods. I landed in the crypto world roughly around mid 2017 (upgraded from the forex and commodities world) and have been wonderfully consumed by it all.
Over the several months, I grew more and more familiar with the project, goals and vision. Soon enough the penny dropped and I realized this was something much more than a speculative interest or “typical crypto project”. MahaDao has the biggest of big ambitions, and that boldness really captivated me in a different way. I started to get more involved in the governance side of things, and was greatly encouraged by the teams founders - Steven and Pranay. These guys I immediately felt were genuine and noble at heart - they really want to change the world and make it a better place, and that was humbling to encounter. This is a team and vision that I was compelled to support as best I can.
I’m not a developer, designer, very little to offer in those areas - but I do have a background in Psychology, Trading, Retail, and Construction. It was not the ideal experience in my opinion that could provide a great deal of value. Yet only recently, I joined MahaDao officially as the ‘Governance Coordinator’ - I guess I was wrong about myself. You can be of value just by applying yourself and learning more as you go along.
I am someone who utterly thrives on learning - sociology, economics, biology, history, anthropology, politics, religion, culture and traditions, arts and music, you name it. Much of this made it easier to grasp the problem that MahaDao is aiming to solve, and I realized that for me personally - this was no longer a speculative interest, but a purpose that was more than worthy of my time.
It is a privilege and honor to work towards such a noble and ambitious vision, and I am driven and motivated by every person on the planet that is suffering from a broken monetary system - that we have an opportunity here to fix that, make something great, and change so many lives. For someone that came to MahaDao as an investor, what I found instead is truly priceless.
Aside from everything above, the community is amazing - I can see overtime that many are taking a similar flight as they realize the greater potential of MahaDao. If there is any words of wisdom that I’d like to pass on to everyone, it is this;
You don’t have to be great in order to do great things. It doesn’t matter where you came from or what you already know or don’t know - if you want to work on something, just do it, just get started, you will learn along the way because the learning is in the doing.
Have a great day, and I look forward to hearing from you all
