Brenda Gentry quit her full time Job to focus on Crypto


This is story of a mom. Brenda Gentry was working as a as a mortgage underwriter at USAA for over a decade. Recently, in October 2021, she resigned. Instead of starting another job of her scope (financial consultancy etc), she pivoted to crypto full-time. Currently, she’s running a crypto consulting firm.

This San Antonio resident has different view or perspective about crypto. She sees crypto as a way to accumulate and pass on generational wealth. While talking to CNBC Make It, Gentry said that She and her family are excited about the “unprecedented opportunities offered by crypto”.

Gentry started taking interest in crypto while she was doing her 9 to 5 job. And she got this opportunity during COVID-19 lockdown. She started small, but gradually began investing more.

By early 2021, she had garnered substantial returns. “My investment portfolio surpassed my 401(k) — which had taken 11 years to get to $200,000 — in six months,” Gentry says. She acknowledges that cryptocurrency is a risky investment, but her experience in finance and process of due diligence helps her feel comfortable investing in the space.

Now, Gentry is widely known as the “crypto mom” online. She continues to personally invest in digital assets, but mainly runs Gentry Media Productions with her daughters, Cynthia, 23, and Imani Gentry, 19.

The firm advises decentralized finance (DeFi) and nonfungible token (NFT) projects, and Gentry typically makes between 10 and 20 ether, which is around $40,000 to $80,000, from the business each month. In comparison, she made about $75,000 annually in her past job.
