What does CORE mean to me?
This might be the most sweet article I ever wrote. I guess, because all those emotional x-mas WAGMI love vibes reaching my core. They touch my heart more than life does already. If you read this, you clicked the link, because you heard about me. You either like those intense vibes I am sharing or you are totally annoyed by them. There is not much in between.
So yeah... please, yeah I please you: get ready, because I believe this is the most romantic love letter to a community and to the core members of concave (∞) that I ever wrote ... and the story starts back in my high school, when I tried to arrange peace between aggressive kids. I stepped in, when I saw others beating up the smaller ones. It was and it is unfair to beat anybody. Communication is the key, if we do not understand this = ngmi.
Basically, I could never handle violence, I simply never believed it solves anything. Violence only creates more aggressions and where does this lead us, if shit is just getting more? Yeah, to way more shit. But our world does not need more shit. It did not need when I was a teenager and it certainly does not need it today.
WHO WAS ALEXANDROS BACK THEN?
So I was the weird boy in school, who always tried to come up with stories that would re-connect my class mates and the people involved in stress. I tried to be funny, while others were pissed. Sometimes it worked, sometimes I was blamed for wasting the time of people. Deep inside I think people were not ready to be in peace, so what could I have done, if people are not ready for peace?
Right, I left school. I kicked myself out, I ran basically far away and jumped into business life. Not that business was coming with less peace, but it came with more communication and with people, who were able to solve issues, before they became stressful. I started to get into the retail sales business and introduced Apple Ipods to Europeans biggest retail store (Media Markt) at a time, the leadership management did not even know about Apple.
We would have called them back in the time; NGMI people.
They were like our mainstream bankers today, who avoid to take a lock at the Blockchain or get deeper into the decentralized finance space. I was a hard mothafucker fam, I keept going to educate people on life style products, that were costly and fancy and it finally worked. I received my first Apple product, an Ipod Mini in Gold and with each discussion at meetings with the managers of Media Markt or supervisors or even the CEO of our store in my home town, I went ALL IN by simply showing the product. The moment they felt it, they were like you getting this boner or getting wet. They were naturally into it. Nothing could bring them back to their closed mind set - they felt the energy and they were on it. On fire.
WAGMI always wins.
I broke the limited beliefs by simply letting them use the scroll wheel or showed them that there is no battery that you can remove. The metal felt soft and the way it felt in their hands... I see those faces today, all those older managers could not hide the fact, that they having the boner of their life right now. And the worst: a fucking 15 years young (the youngest employee in Germany!) introduced that product to them. It fucked them up, but they had to accept this fact, the magic was stronger. Life played it fair, my pure intentions to offer this Ipod to all the people in Germany, to let them feel WAGMI, yeah this feeling that you might feel from our concave community too - this sensation won. WAGMI always wins.
I was already full on WAGMI back then.
BOOM. My big day. I got the top management to the point, that I was allowed to take pre-orders on a product, that did not even launched yet in Germany officially. I ordered it weeks before from the United States and it costed me a fortune to import it. My father called me crazy, my mother touched this Ipod like it would be a puppy dog. Whoever saw this Ipod was in love. Whoever heard the price, was shocked and especially in the south of Germany, everybody called me "CRAZY and FUCKED" - for paying 600 dollars for a product that plays music. They told me: "You can get a Philips Mp3 Player for 89 Dollars at Wal Mart."
Funny, those people pay today 1,5k for the new Iphone.
Back in the days they did not, because nobody did. Today everybody does, so they do.
This part is important, this behaviour is super important as everybody will be in defi in a few years, while me and you - reading this - are into it already balls deep and this is why WAGMI is with you. You are at the right place, especially when you come from our concave family. Thanks for being here, thanks for still reading fam.
Apple Stock was at a few dollars at that time.
I had a hard time to bring those products to the retail stores, so I took a 100 Dollar deposit of my clients, to secure their order and if the product will reach the stores, my clients could pay the rest of the ipod. My supervisor was so pissed, each time I sold one, as he was the one 100% against this product.
His reason: You could not change the battery of the product and to import music, you needed to use Itunes Music.
The day my parents will never forget.
(because they never bought any Apple Stock, even their own son proofed that this is fucking serious).
The doors of this Media Markt opened and I was so fucking on fire. I think the only moment I will be so on fire is the day concave will start (Q1) and when my kids will come out of my future wife. So when the most expensive mp3 player at that time by far hit the store and my pre-sales clients fucking destroyed the retail store... can you imagine my face. I had not even time to smile, as I was printing the invoices and ran into the storage to get them the right Ipod (we had different colours, but gold was at that time not available for Germany, so I was the baller sales dude, people wanted pictures with me, haha).
Fam, imagine, they ATE the Ipods out of my hands. I had to write invoices, while running up and down getting the Ipods ready for pick up at the reception of the store. I had not time to breath, Tsachouridis A. in the sales system went up like OHM on coingecko this year. I was that day one of the highest ranked sales people in all Germany. Logically, other sales dudes in the stores around Germany sold 89 Dollar mp3 Players, my ones were 4-5 times more expensive and the quantity I bombed out, was insane. I was mooning, that shit made Media Markt a lot of money, less profit, but high numbers. Apple products do not have a high margin, but the managers loved to see our small city store on the TOP 10 stores. And now imagine, they had over 200 stores at that time. And my work pushed them fucking high and that was my moment. I remember running home and telling my parents to sell all my life savings and invest RIGHT NOW into Apple. They never listend to me, but who cares today. Others listend and others saw that this little WAGMI boy believed in his vision and stayed strong. Me against the world of retail for months.
Look at this word: recognition. Read it again. It is important for this article and for concave.
The oldschool NGMI managers had boners all day long. I made them mentally rich, they could show off at the meetings and everybody started to talk about this little boy, who was fighting for months with 20 years older managers for one thing only: accept my knowledge, accept the fact that I know what the market wants. Accept fucking hell, that a 15 years young teenager chatting in Skype, ICQ and Forums with US People knows that Apple is coming big to Europe. It was ALPHA and I won, but not any price, I won way more: recognition
RECOGNITION. This is what is concave about too.
We accept you, we take you serious, we are your friends and this is why we go for WAGMI only fam.
What is recognition?
It means that we at concave see your drive and your love and we want you to be yourself, without that you need to fight. You can love, you can spread harmony and you can support others, while the community will hold you, so you can feel free and let go. You are allowed to be YOU and follow your heart. You can sync with others, to be in peace with the world.
I do not want you to go through the pain I had to go through for decades.
I had to constantly fight and proof myself, to be accepted and that sucks.
There is a family at concave, a family who loves me. A family that loves you.
There is the core that loves me. WE, the core, we love YOU. There is so much love to spread.
You all know at concave, that we are basically a love production. The thing we do all day long, is producing love and its time we are spreading this love heavily around, because that is what the world needs and wants.
We love each other and I told you, this is the most romantic lover letter to a community, I ever wrote. And it is the most purest thing I ever typed, because I am at some point in my life, where I am not able to live differently than pure only anymore. Nothing else makes sense to me anymore. It is now or never. So let us make this love go around the world.
So the question in this article is: What does CORE mean to me?
I can answer this very simply and I used the story above, to make you emotionally ready to understand and feel what I want to say now.
I do not want you to face walls and rejection, like I did. It hurts.
I do not want any pain for our concave community, I only want good vibes for us.
I do not want you to fight for your right to be right, if you are right.
I do not want you to feel this shitty feeling, of thinking you are worth less than others.
Because you are not, we are all seeking for love and harmony and we all want to be accepted and loved.
CONCAVE IS LOVE.
I do not want you to be in debates all day long, just to justify yourself or to explain yourself. Those times can be used to love each other, time in fights are totally wasted times. Let us use the time life gave us, to love each other. Love is the only answer, no matter the question.
I do not want you to lose your energy and power, like I did - only to proof what was obviously correct. If you are on the right path, keep going, concave will protect and support you. The community will lift you up, so you can make it. Because if you make it, we all gonna make it.
I do not want to have you involved in no-sense talks, only to be the winner at the end of the day, because we are all winners in concave. If somebody is loser, then we are all losers. Keep this in mind. The member to your right or left is your brother and your sister, he and she is your family. Be there for your family, we are family. Let us be there for each other.
Keep that in mind, family.
We either make it together, all of us, or nobody will make it.

FAM; PLEASE SHARE THIS LOVE_LETTER.
LETS SPREAD THE WAGMI VIBES ALL AROUND
I want you to share this article with people in Concave and people that want to be soon in concave. Yes, I am proud that I can write this letter to the world. It means a lot to me, that I am core at concave and I will do all in my power to lead by example and leading by example is, that my WAGMI is your WAGMI and your WAGMI is my WAGMI.
IT IS ALL ABOUT WAGMI LOVE VIBES.
At the end of the day, I want to look at you, through a screen, through an audio AMA call or one day in real life. I want to look in your eyes and want to see through those eyes your heart. I want to see the beat of it. Because everyone that you will ever meet in your life, has one heart. It is something that connects us - it is our strongest connection. And his or her one, it is beating like your one does. It does follow the beat of life and nobody of us, nobody ever in history of this world, knew when his heart will stop beating. And I can promise you, if they would have known they have only 333 last heart beats, what you think they would have done?
They would have been the best version of themselves for the next 333 heart beats.
So let us show with concave that we do not need a date of death, to be the best version of ourselves.
Let us show this world, that each day alive is our date together. Our date to be the best version of ourselves.
Let us show with concave that we feel those heart beats and those heart beats beating WAGMI with each pump.
What a beautiful heart beat, fam.
All day long.
Until the day of the day comes.
And then our souls will meet at the WAGMI After-Party and we continue what we did best in our life.
Fucking loving each other all day long, because this is the only thing that really makes sense in life, dear family.
LOVE, the only answer, no matter the question.
