Value for Value

Ways to Support Me

First of all: thank you for your support. It is because of people like you why I am able to do what I do. All my work is released for free under a cc-by-sa license and provided on a value for value basis.

The idea of value for value is simple: information is provided free of charge, directly, without any paywalls or middlemen. If the information was valuable to you, you are encouraged to give value back.

Some give 10 sats, some give 21 EUR, some give $100 USD or more. It’s completely up to you.

How much value did you get out of it? Pack of chewing gum? Good meal? Night at the movies? 🍿 It’s a weird and unusual concept, but somehow it works. And there’s more to it than just money.

Time, Talent, Treasure

If you can’t part with your hard-earned sats, consider giving back with your time or talent instead. For example, you can share one of my articles or work on a translation.

Recurring Support

Recurring support to pay the monthly bills is highly appreciated. Unfortunately, there is no good way to do recurring payments with bitcoin yet. Which is why I still have to use fiat platforms.

Meatspace Support

Physical goods behave differently than information, so if you want to purchase atoms that exist because of me, buying my book is a good option.

(also available in German, French, Dutch, and Finnish)

Lightning Support

You can send an arbitrary amount of sats to or one of my other lightning addresses.1 My articles have lightning addresses too, so if you want to send some sats to a specific article—you can!

Stealthy Support

My paynym2 is +gentlepond791. It’s a green robot. How fitting!

  1. A Lightning Address allows you to receive bitcoin payments using an e-mail style address format. Try it out yourself by signing up to Stacker News or by using one of these Telegram bots: LNTXBOT, LightningTipBot. My lightning addresses:,,, 

  2. A PayNym is a shareable code for sending and receiving private bitcoin payments.
