Proper now, I’m 16 and would not have a lot credible expertise on this area aside from began investing in JAN 2021 (and profiting off Reddit avatars + a bag of BTC). I’m presently taking Maths, Additional Maths, Economics and Physics and eager to pursue a pc science/arithmetic course at uni. Is there something you guys would advocate doing now that might make me standout sooner or later?
any hyperlinks or web sites could be nice ????, and even simply common recommendation.

The most important factor is not a college degree (albeit this helps) but experience and proven work (there are many open source projects you can contribute towards.)
Thus the focus should be on :
1) contributing towards multiple open source bitcoin projects. Start with wallets/projects/lapps instead of the protocol and you can even start by helping with documentation or translations.
If you want to start developing than here is some more information :
Smart contracts –
2) consider an interneship at a bitcoin company or taking a development course –
3) Apply to different bitcoin companies when you have a resume of work.
Here are some Bitcoin companies that are always hiring as well
You don’t have to be an engineer or software developer to work for a Bitcoin company. My background is in marketing and design and I work for a Bitcoin company.
A Bitcoin company is like any other company and requires positions like HR, marketing and even customer support. Don’t limit yourself to certain courses, in case you don’t like them (or honestly aren’t good at them).
If you’re interested in pursuing a career in the field of cryptocurrency, a good first step would be to gain a strong foundation in computer science and mathematics. This will involve taking relevant classes and courses in high school and college, and potentially pursuing internships or research opportunities that will allow you to gain practical experience in the field.
In addition to gaining a strong technical background, it would also be helpful to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the cryptocurrency industry. This could involve reading industry news and analysis, attending conferences and events, and networking with other professionals in the field.
Finally, consider building your own projects or contributing to open source projects related to cryptocurrency. This will not only help you gain valuable experience and skills, but will also help you build a portfolio of work that you can show to potential employers.
Honestly, any quality Bitcoin company is going to hire you based on your passion for bitcoin.
If you’re 16 now, I would focus on building a well-branded social media presence to make yourself easily identifiable and well known. It can be anon or use your real name if you’d like.
I would also focus on building a project that brings some sort of value to the space. If you just want to get your name out there, I would consider doing some writing for a Bitcoin publication.
What are you most passionate about in Bitcoin?
learn about web 3.0 and how to use it, etc.
First of all, it’s very cool that you already understand the importance of bitcoin at your young age. That puts you ahead of 99% of your peers. My piece of advice is that practical experience is at least as important as academic achievement. Approach people you respect in the Bitcoin industry and see if you can arrange a summer internship or similar. Create your own project, no matter how small and insignificant it seems.
