The Do’s and Don’ts of Talking Crypto over the Holidays

This holiday season, we know it will be a little awkward navigating conversations with your family whenever cryptocurrency comes up. After all, these are the people who probably rolled their eyes at you whenever you talked about “going to the Moon” all of those years ago, so we’re sure you’re feeling a little smug right now. We made this helpful guide to help you learn what to say, and what not to say, this holiday season when talking to your family.

SAY INSTEAD: “Yeah, crypto seemed to catch a lot of people by surprise.”

DON’T SAY: “Grandma are you still writing checks? In 2020?”
SAY INSTEAD: “Thanks for the $20, grandma!”

DON’T SAY: “Why are we using our fireplace? My Bitcoin mining rig can keep the house warm.”
SAY INSTEAD: “This feels really cozy right now, thanks!”

DON’T SAY: “I told you it wasn’t just magic fake internet money!”
SAY INSTEAD: “Yeah, Bitcoin does seem a little hard to figure out.”

DON’T SAY: “How many satoshis did you pay for that?”
SAY INSTEAD: “Wow, that looks great!”

DON’T SAY: “Please tell me you at least earned free bitcoin when you paid for that.”
SAY INSTEAD: “Thanks, I’ve always wanted this!”

DON’T SAY: “Satoshi Nakamoto cared about my future more than you people ever did.”
SAY INSTEAD: “Thanks for having me home this year.”

DON’T SAY: “Did you keep the receipt? I want to see if I can return this and use that cash to buy crypto.”
SAY INSTEAD: “I needed extra socks!”

DON’T SAY: “No thanks, the only hotdog I’m interested in is HotdogSwap.”
SAY INSTEAD: “Pass the mustard, please.”

DON’T SAY: “I’m kind of a big deal on Crypto Twitter.”
SAY INSTEAD: No Mom, I don’t have a girlfriend this year. Maybe next year.”

DON’T SAY: “If only you would’ve listened to me you could’ve retired by now, Dad.”
SAY INSTEAD: “How’s the job going, Dad?”

And last, but certainly not least:

DON’T SAY: “Crypto is going to make me rich!”
SAY INSTEAD: “Crypto is going to make our family more free.”

From the Metal Family to yours, we want to wish you a happy holidays and a warm winter! We hope you stay safe, feel loved, and always remember to back up your keys.

🤘 Your family at Metal 🤘
