The 2018 Year of Cryptocurrency Challenge – Week 14

At the beginning of 2018, I wrote an article outlining a New Year’s resolution that I thought could help boost cryptocurrency adoption and awareness in 2018, as long as enough people were doing it. Last week was the thirteenth installment of my challenge. This week went well enough, if not just a bit slow.


Admittedly, I spoke with fewer people than usual this week about cryptocurrency. I didn’t have much time to see friends or interact with people online. However, I did get to have a few good conversations.

  1. Saturday night, I was at my favorite dive with a friend. She works closely with underprivileged communities. She told me about a recent conference she attended where state and community leaders came together to try and foster greater connection between communities and public land. Blockchain technology, apparently, had come up. The gist of the proposal was that communities would be able to purchase microplots of public land and have those deeds placed on a blockchain. A sort of proof-of-maintenance (from what I could gather) would reward the owners of those microplots for keeping them maintained. It was incredibly interesting!
  2. My sister asked me about “how that whole bitcoin thing” was going recently. Her view of it is justifiably skeptical, since when she visited me in London one of the places I showed her was the Computer Exchange near my school that had a Bitcoin ATM. I was showing her it because I needed to purchase some Bitcoin and also because I thought it might be cool to start showing more of this stuff to my family. While it may have seemed to her at the time like I was showing her some weird store in a London alley, I think she now understands it a bit better. We talked about the technology and this challenge, actually.


I really had fun with this one this week. Learning new languages is one of my favorite things to do, and I realized just how few blockchain-related words I knew in other languages. I decided to try and expand my foreign lexicon to include some crypto-speak. I’ll share some of it here.

Spanish: Criptomondea (Cryptocurrency), Minería (Mining)

German: Kryptowährung (Cryptocurrency)

Polish: Kryptowaluta (Cryptocurrency)


This week I didn’t have much opportunity to use my coins. However, I did send about $5 worth of Doge to Dogecoin Socks for the Homeless. This is a group I love to support, because they try to help the homeless live more comfortable lives.

Do you speak another language? What are some good cryptocurrency words or phrases in your native tongue? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter!
