Welcome to the Portfolio update of January 2024. Happy new year!

Personal update

New team mate hired, he’s starting next week. If he gets his laptop on time.

December was a nice month with some great events like the office Christmas party and some outings with friends. I’ve got two weeks off until next Monday. We’ve got invited to a wedding in China in March and crypto was doing pretty well. Christmas was celebrated with the family.

The Phala network produced an 10k USD windfall due to a bug we’ve found in October. As a result the team was paying out mining rewards to users twice of which we’ve got some share of it. I used that extra money to buy and build a new PC for myself, I sometimes get that itch of assembling a PC.

Not much else to say, happy new year. May your 2024 be the best year or your life!

I didn’t look much at the portfolio in December, was more focused on Crypto. In January I will probably move some sizable amounts into the stock market.
