Keegan Goes Full Crypto
My name is Keegan Francis. I’ve been interested in Bitcoin since 2013, and invested since 2015. I stumbled upon Bitcoin while taking a computer science degree at Acadia University in Canada. I am now an active developer in Bitcoin projects and regularly contribute to public discourse around bitcoin, finance, and economics.
I invested in Bitcoin in 2015
Paid off my $60k worth of student debt in 2017 (thanks, Bitcoin)
Started my business with my wife (Mrugakshee Palwe) in 2018

What is Go Full Crypto?
Go Full Crypto is a brand that my partner Mrugakshee Palwe and I started in the middle of 2020. We had been dealing with our local banks, and had no shortage of complaints with the services that we were receiving. We decided to turn our personal, and business' cash into Bitcoin, and completely opt out of as much of the world of traditional finance as possible. In essence, we decided to “Go Full Crypto”. In the spirit of sharing what we’ve learned with the world, we are documenting this journey, in as many ways as possible. We have a blog, a podcast, a YouTube Channel, and several other content channels through which we tell our stories.
My Success with Crypto
After graduating with $60k in debt, I decided to aggressively tackle this issue by considering “risky” investment options. After the 2008 financial crisis, I never felt like the stock market resonated with my interests. Bitcoin had always been something that fascinated me due to its unbiased, autonomous, and algorithmic monetary policy. To my benefit, I managed to pay off my student debt after the 2017 cryptocurrency bull run. This put me in a perfect place to do something I’ve always wanted to do. Start my own business, and help others prosper with my knowledge.
Even though we’re “Go Full Crypto”, we are heavy Bitcoiners. I didn’t start this way. For years, I was enthralled by the many other cryptocurrencies out there. It wasn’t until mid 2019 (four years after I started my journey) that I decided to consolidate my portfolio into Bitcoin, and focus almost exclusively on how to help people understand, and adopt Bitcoin. It took me a while to understand that Bitcoin is digital gold. Once I understood this, I sold almost every other cryptocurrency I had, to pick up more Bitcoin, after all, there is a limited supply of 21 million.
There are other ways to contribute indirectly to me. If you’re signing up for a crypto or bitcoin related service, you can check this list of services I like and use my referral code. This will end up giving me a kickback which is also very much appreciated.
