"All my friends were talking about [cryptocurrency] so one day I just decided why not just jump in and see if I can make some money," says 20-year-old Paxton See Tow. And to make the achievement even sweeter and more memorable, he also graduated the same year as his daughter Nuruljannah Suhaimi, who earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design Art from Nanyang Technological University. The booming crypto market throughout most of 2021, which included record-breaking price rallies for bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), saw a surge in interest for crypto-related tattoos. In a video posted on Instagram on Sunday (May 15), Suhaimi shared clips from his and his daughter’s convocations overlaid with his family’s conversation, where he said: “(My daughter) graduated at the age of 25, and I graduated at the age of 52. We are fed up with the scary dreams and are returning your valuables.
Education has no boundaries. On Wednesday, Mr Novogratz published an offering his first public comments on the cryptocurrency’s downfall. They grew up online, playing games and meeting friends virtually, so the transition is natural.” A post shared by Suhaimi Yusof Official (@suhaimiyusof_official) He added that he had wanted to pursue a degree 30 years ago, but chose to further his career first instead.

Therehas been speculation that many of the so-called ‘whales’ who had major holdings of LUNA and UST were able to cash out using the reserves stockpiled by the Luna Foundation Guard, which oversees the two cryptocurrencies. Authorities have lodged a case of theft against unidentified persons under section 380 of the Indian Penal Code and formed two teams to arrest the accused.
He said: “I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to graduate with my daughter in the same year?” And so, he did, reinforcing his sentiment that learning is a lifelong process. Thanking his family and university lecturers, Suhaimi further encouraged his Instagram followers to pursue education, saying: “Jojo Joget now has a Bachelor's degree in Jogetology. “Reading the stories of retail investors who lost their savings in one investment is heart-wrenching,” Mr Novogratz wrote. I let my emotions get the better of me," he says. If I can do this, anyone can.” Suhaimi’s far from the only local celebrity chasing lifelong education.” He concluded by claiming that Galaxy Digital was “in a strong capital and liquidity position” and “well-positioned for long-term growth”. Last month, actor and DJ started pursuing a diploma in Chinese Media and Communication at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. After making six figures in 2017, he lost more than half a million dollars the following year.
