Diary of a made man

Crypto Retirement in Thailand | Diary of a Made Man #004

by Ian Balina

A year ago

In this episode of Diary of a Made Man, I introduce the vision of Crypto Retirement.

I show you what life can be like, once you achieve your goals in cryptocurrency investing. Being able to live life on your own accord, after leaving your 9-to-5 job. Not having to worry about a job, an income, a boss or manager, or the corporate world. I show you how it's like to live life as if every day is Saturday, and how Ugo and I are savoring each moment during our travels and enjoying each experience, without feeling rushed.

In this episode, we travel to Bangkok, where I host a meetup with my audience, as well as hang out with Michael and Harri from my Patreon group.

Next, we travel to Koh Phangan for the full moon party and enjoy planning our goals for 2018 on a secret beach. I also take a huge L that you'll just have to watch to find out what happened.

We then head to Pattaya, where I have an amazing meetup at the rooftop bar of the Hilton in Pattaya. Great conversations, great people, and good times were had by all. I miss my audience and end up doing a live stream at the infinity pool on top of the Hilton. I also hang out with Mike Vestil and his friends. We go jet skiing, banana boat riding, and our investor friend Ryan Lee takes us to a gun range for the first time. Man, I loved my time in Pattaya.

In Phuket, I host another meetup with my audience. The crypto family is getting bigger and bigger, and I share my thoughts on the crypto market in 2018.

We wrap up our Crypto Retirement in Thailand by heading to Koh Phi Phi Islands. Man, what a blast we had here. We went on a full day boat tour and party and had one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. This is what Crypto Retirement is all about. Being able to escape the corporate world and live life on your own terms, at your own pace, without having to worry about money.

This is my Crypto Retirement. What will your Crypto Retirement look like? What's the first vacation spot you'll head to? Please let me know in the comments below.


  • Hi Ian, I worked in the corporate world for last 12 years non stop. Suddenly, I came across to block chain tech Sep 17 and become a huge fan of its possiblies it can offer to the people of the world. Then I saw your videos this month and love the openness and integrity of information you provide to the whole world. I am from Australia and would feel immensely privileged if I have a chance to work alongside with you in order to change the world with your vision for blockchain. Thanks Muhammad
