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 an open and permissive license and provided on a value for value basis.
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.1
The idea 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.
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. It’s about time, talent, and treasure.
Some give 10 sats, some give 21 EUR, some give $100 USD, 1 BTC, or more. It’s completely up to you.
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.
You can send an arbitrary amount of sats to firstname.lastname@example.org or one of my other lightning addresses.2 My articles have lightning addresses too, so if you want to send some sats to a specific article—you can!
My paynym3 is +gentlepond791. It’s a green robot. How fitting!
