The $3,000,000 Ethereum Jackpot You Literally Just Slept On

 
Whew: That's a whole lotta ETH

Congrats to the winner of FOMO 3D Long Round 1: 10.5K ETH ($2.93M USD) 😬

Round 2 is already underway with 5.5K ETH ($1.5M) seeded from the previous jackpot, up to 6.4K ETH already as of this posting. 🚀🚀 

What does this all mean? It means that a crazy new Ethereum-based game that many largely wrote off as a Ponzi scheme actually paid out exactly like the smart contract promised it would.  

Seeing how it took an inordinate amount of patience, ETH, and luck, the game is more akin to a lottery - one in which you earn dividends on your shot to win big. And if you hold P3D - the evolutionary smart contract financial ecosystem that receives dividends from the game - you earned dividends there as well. Think about all the suckers who buy into lotteries around the world who don't even get divs...




Justo put it best in his embedded picture in this tweet: Just imagine withdrawing 10,469 Ethereum... (for only $0.15 in fees at that - take that, Big Centralized Banks!). 

For more on how to play P3D or FOMO 3D, check out my earlier article in Black Enterprise. `10

DYOR: MONERO (XMR)


Elevator Pitch: Monero is a popular privacy coin specializing in quick, peer-to-peer anonymous transactions.


Raise your hand if you like everybody all up in your business! Yeah – didn't think so. Monero is the type of cryptocurrency built for discretion, anonymity, and maintaining your personal privacy. 

Monero's popularity also lay in the fact that it works: As a one-time Bitpetite victim, I can attest to how well this privacy coin was used. The con artists behind that lending platform debacle exchanged users' Bitcoin for Monero, exit-scammed, and haven't been found since. Well played, mini-Madoffs – you got me. 

Let's take a quick look at some of Monero's features from our accompanying Digital Asset Evaluation score sheet, courtesy of SPACESUIT X.

The post that started it all

I'd first heard about bitcoin on an episode of The Good Wife in 2012. But it seemed so fantastical, it didn't register - so I moved on.

I miss Alicia Florrick...

Then, I stumbled across a video with Max Keiser when I was working at Upworthy as a contributing curator in March 2013. Then it all clicked for me.



Here's my original post for Upworthy. My, how we've grown... #HODL

Coin Lives Matter: HBD, Bitcoin!


On this date 9 years ago, the genesis block of Bitcoin and the blockchain was born. In it, the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto attached a lil F.U. to the banking bailout culture with it. Happy birthday, Bitcoin!

Partially in its honor (and because I just found this neat little video), here is a CNBC (of all places) guy explaining the fairly steady rise of bitcoin through logarithmic charts. Charts, people - charts!



Happy birthday, Bitcoin. I don't care what these baby altcoins say. You're still #1 on CoinMarketCap, and #1 in our hearts.
