The phenomenon of laptop stickers has become quite popular amongst the tech-savvy community and has gained a lot of traction in recent years with the rise of crypto conventions like ETHDenver, ETHCC, Avalanche Summit, and other NFT conventions. Stickers have evolved beyond just being something that one uses to show support for their favorite protocol or coin and have become a means of self-identity.
So why do people attach stickers to their laptops? For starters, it allows them to display their interests, beliefs, and values in front of others. It is also seen as a way of creating a sense of belonging and identity with a particular group or community. By having stickers from a particular convention or event, people can show that they were a part of that community, and that they are proud of it.
But what do the stickers on your laptop say about your personality? Well, it is believed that people who have a lot of stickers on their laptops are more likely to be extroverted as well as open to new experiences and more creative.
It turns out that people who adorn their laptops with stickers from crypto conventions like ETHDenver, ETHCC, ETH Global, and others are not just expressing their love for blockchain technology, but also revealing a lot about their personality.
One of the most common types of stickers found on laptops nowadays represents different cryptos and blockchain events. The rise of blockchain technology has created a subculture of enthusiasts who attend conventions and events to learn more about this emerging technology. These individuals often sport stickers from various events as a badge of honor and a way to showcase their involvement in the industry.
Rule number one of sticker decoration: you always buy a case for your laptop. I have always been utterly shocked by people putting stickers on their $3000 MacBook Pro. Dude, you can’t do it. It’s like having sex with a total stranger and not wrapping your dick with a condom.
There are so many different materials for stickers that you cannot simply add them to your laptop: vinyl, epoxy, brushed aluminum, kraft paper, removable, or clear plastic. All of these materials have different kinds of stickiness and could be a real pain when it comes to removing them, especially the paper ones. Those little bastards get moldy, and you have to use rubbing alcohol to remove them. So if you plan to add one to your laptop you’ve been warned!
Firstly, it is important to understand why people put stickers on their laptops. Stickers are a means of self-expression and personalizing. They allow individuals to demonstrate their interests, beliefs, and affiliations to the world around them. Stickers can also serve as conversation starters and can help individuals connect with others who share similar interests.
Lots of good stickers, but boy, what the hell. Stickers are pure form of art how do you cover one with another. What kind of twisted mind does that? Laptop stickers are more than just decorations – they’re a statement of someone’s identity as a crypto enthusiast.
