I keep looking for new projects and review them in the most critical manner.
I am in Blockchain industry from past 2 years and have seen ups and downs of this world. I invested my time learning the tech behind Blockchain. When I started I was like chasing the train guy but after 2 years I can say I do understand the projects on a technical level and that helps me with the rating and reviewing any project.
Right now I have a full-time job of Well Site geologist where we analyze the rock samples under a microscope. I do the same with any new crypto project, I dive deep into their whitepaper and then ask questions to clear my doubts and then comes time to rate them.
I do spend time on forums too. Spending time on forums help me learn what others are thinking and at the same, it helps me widen my horizon of thinking.
