I know there are videos of Soapbox Idol, but I have not yet seen them.

Is this a first? House of Pizza in Lancaster officially is accepting Goldbacks. Major props to Ian, who is really the one who made all this happen.

Last year, I was the only (from what I was able to discern) person using / Monero at Forkfest and Porcfest. This year, many, many people were using XMR, and we even had people from a Monero podcast interview me about the Crypto Six. They stood outside my presentation selling coffee for Monero.

Four years ago, the vibe here was so different. I was a contestant in an event that, tonight, I was a judge in. What a majestic ride it has been.

I would change nothing that I had the power to do differently.

It still doesn't look like there will be a fire tonight, but there was still a party this afternoon to raise awareness for the Crypto 6. Some people were surprised and confused to learn I'm one of the six. We... might have a marketing issue lol

Neither I nor Aasrija slept very well, so we were up very early to watch the clouds roll out.

Within an actual, literal second of me posting about being on sale, Facebook banned me for 30 days over a pic of someone's Halloween costume that I posted in early December. My last ban also happened immediately after I posted something about Bitcoin.

Why don't I just leave?

There's no point. I can't really use the platform in the first place. I'm banned more often than not; quitting would take more effort than it's worth.
