What I’m doing now – December 17, 2023

I’ve been thinking about what to share in my newsletter. I made a list ready, and picked out one idea for today.

But then, another thought hit me.

Why not catch you up on what I’ve been doing lately?

It’s been a few years since I’ve written on my blog.

I think it’s time for a quick update on my current projects and adventures.

Let’s dive in!

Business Ventures

Currently, all of the business ventures I’m doing are under TK Ventures, a company that I co-founded with 3 good friends since 2020.

We started mainly as a media company then quickly grew into a portfolio of different products & services aimed at web3 users. Some notable projects:

Crypto Media Network

When I joined crypto back in 2020, I didn’t really want to only focus on trading.

My goal was to build a sustainable business in crypto.

After some research, I saw an opportunity in media and content creation.

General crypto news was everywhere. But niche media for each crypto ecosystem?

Almost nonexistent.

So, I launched BSC Daily, the first Twitter channel covering news and updates exclusively for Binance Smart Chain.

To my amazement, BSC Daily skyrocketed, reaching 100,000 followers in just a few months. Our revenue started flowing in through advertising and affiliate channels. It was a confirmation that our business model was on the right track.

So we quickly expanded and started more channels covering most of the major blockchain ecosystems like Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche, and more.

At the moment, our network of channels have more than 2,000,000 followers, reaching tens of millions of impressions.

We also have a few other media projects, such as:

  • Coinwire – a crypto news website. This is a very competitive space, so the site is growing slowy & but gradually.
  • Chainplay.gg – a web3 gaming portal. Similar to Coingecko, but targeted only at web3 gaming.
  • 5 Minutes Crypto – one of the biggest crypto & finance Youtube channels in Vietnam.

Web3 VC Fund

In May 2021, TK Ventures started a small fund using our own money to invest in seed & private sales of 60+ crypto projects. This was a huge success and we were able to return a few hundred percents for our investments.

However, the fund hasn’t deployed money into any new deal since 2022 because I haven’t found many good deals for our criteria yet.

I’ll write a post about my current thesis for investing in crypto soon.

Alpha Quest – Crypto Research Tool

This was a SaaS that we started earlier this year to provide crypto users with a platform that can help them discover hidden gems & new narratives in the market.

Storible – Digital PR Agency

This is a digital PR agency started in 2022 to work with e-commerce & affiliate businesses. We only work with a few selected clients at the moment as scaling this type of business is quite challenging.


  • Web3 Gaming: I’m really excited about this category in the crypto space. I believe it’s where I’ll see the biggest returns in the next bull run.
  • TinySeed: I invested in TinySeed, a fund that helps bootstrapped SaaS founders. It’s a great fit for those who don’t want to go with the traditional VC route.
  • VIC Partners: Since 2020, I’ve been an LP with VIC Partners. They invest in early-stage Vietnamese startups, and I’m thrilled to be part of it.

What I’m Learning

  • Handstand Training: I’m on a journey to master the handstand, with guidance from a skilled coach in India. We’re methodically training to perfect my freestanding handstand technique.
  • Developing a Trading System: My goal is to develop a semi-automated trading system that is consistently profitable. I know people who have done this so this is totally within reach.
  • Preparing for Fatherhood: The biggest adventure is yet to come – I’m going to be a dad in January!

Books I’m Reading

These are 2 trading books I’m currently reading. They’re both great!

Things I’m Enjoying

  • Aquascaping: Picked up this hobby last year and it’s been an amazing journey. I’m now managing two big aquariums, learning and growing with each step.
  • Gaming: Currently playing Elden Ring and God of War Ranarok New DLC. Diablo 4 is on pause until the next season which starts in January 2024.

That’s all for this week! I hope you enjoyed this little snapshot into my world.

I’d love to hear what’s been keeping you busy and inspired lately. Feel free to hit reply and share your own stories or hobbies. Let’s keep the conversation going!
