I studied law and felt useless whenever I read anything on tech or health. The world is going digital and robotic. I need to be part of this digital transformation. A lot of Knowledge is passing me by
Hey man it's not late, most of us didn't study tech in the university but we are already top of the profession. It begins with a step

I don't know if my solution will work for you.
I'm trying to find a way to repatriate funds from the crypto exchange I'm using. I've checked Binance (flat $30), Cex ($25 + 0.3%).
I was thinking I could use Payoneer because Cex offers free ACH transfers, so I figured I could use the US bank account to receive and collect my funds here.
Binance does not support Payoneer

Miyachi:

Wow. That's steep.
This means a flat 2% no matter the amount I'm withdrawing.
I was hopping there charges would be cheaper.
Its quite expensive, did i forget to mention the person sending you money will also be charged
It used to be TransferWise, till they stopped their service for Nigeria, if you see alternative let me know

Miyachi:

Please what are their charges. It's not clearly stated on the withdrawal page. Thanks
Payoneer charges 2 % for every withdrawal

whoa ... EEE

You must have done some coding course in school now and you didn't have any kind of flair for it then, it was after you grad. from college is that right ??

It must have been challenging for you, find your footing already ??
You right man, wasn't intrested then, so when i started it became easy for me.
However, any body can code, as long as you have the passion

Finished university 2012, 5 years later no meaningful employment.
One day i figured out that my B.Eng certificate was no longer useful, dumped it and started programming from scratch, watching Youtube and free courses from coursera
Started coding at 2017 (27 years) and I have never looked back.

You already have the funds, it makes it easy for you

It is no doubt that the way to survive this economy is by getting foreign jobs in which you work remotely and you are paid in foreign currency as well.

If you have ever gotten a remote job, help others identify what the need to do better by answering the following questions.

1. What skill got you your remote job?
2. Where did you find the remote job?
3. What is your pay range?
4. What is the experience like working a foreign remote job?

Please any useful information that will be beneficial to others.

1. Javascript/React Native
2 Indeed
3 $31/hour
4 My company based in Carlifonia, so I start work from 4pm to 2am> Remote friendly jobs are flexible, gives you time to work at any time of the day. Sometimes when i don't meet my 40 hours target for the week, i work on weekends to cover up. I have an inverter and generator that ensures constant 24 hours light and Internet is Spectranet unlimited plan for 20k per month

Hello, my condolence to your family. I admire your courage in taking a bold step for yourself. Every skill you listed above is great but not all skill are sellable. For example those advising you to learn ethical hacking, after learning can you get a job in the 3 months?
I am a programmer and there is always oppurtunites in the field. The tech industry is blomming, go for Web Developer & Design, its an easy step to tech.
