Underpants gnomes: understanding dApps

9 Jul 2020 3 minute read comments Spitkitten

Now that I have a lil crypto, I'm more than a lil obsessed.  No shame in my blockchain (yikes, sorry). And I'm hodling, cuz the market's starting to cough and sputter (and yaas, I wanna learn to day trade, but I'm still 101).  Time to learn about dAp...

Pi 2: the clickening (or, thoughts on Pi mining)

6 Jul 2020 3 minute read comments Spitkitten

So, when I left you last, I'd downloaded the Pi "mining" app in order to do a full(er) assessment (guess?) on its legitimacy -- and a prediction whether it'll become a shitcoin or a possible contender for the moon.  I downloaded the app, and register...

Pi: mud or a golden crust?

30 Jun 2020 4 minute read comments Spitkitten

In my last post, I listed some ways I've learned to try and determine if a new altcoin is headed to the moon or to the shitter. None of these ways, of course, offer guarantees. But, along with some common sense and intuition, are, IMHO, decent-enough...

Moonshot or shitcoin?

If you've been reading along with this blog, so far, you'll know that I accumulated, converted and stored a lil modest $50 as Ethereum and Lumens, which, IMHO, is/was pretty safe and smart.  But, the fun of playing is...playing.  Since I had only a s...

My first fifty, part 3: buying the last $5

24 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments Spitkitten

If you've been, or want to be, following along, I've been spilling the not-very-scandalous ways I patchworked together $50 USD with of crypto to learn and play with.  At the end of the last post, I'd made $45. Five-ish to go.  By now, I'd been feelin...

My first fifty, part 2: learning my way to $45

24 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments Spitkitten

When I left you at Part 1, I'd made a tidy $20. At this point, I opened a CoinBase account. I don't adore having ten bazillion accounts, especially since, in the US, trading sites are regulated financial institutions (lite), and so I have to validate...

My first fifty, part 1: getting some COIN

23 Jun 2020 4 minute read comments Spitkitten

So, there I was. In the middle of a pandemic, way too late to get on the Bitcoin gravy train, with (as I wrote in this post) nothing to lose. With (lots) of time on my hands, due to stay-at-home orders, I read about crypto and blockchain, understandi...

Crypto for the n00biest noob: you found your home

23 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments Spitkitten

I'm often late to the party. Sometimes, that means I arrive just as people are feeling loose and already dancing.  Other times, it means that I get interested in cryptocurrency just as Bitcoin halves, and the party's broken up. But, it's OK. I'm also...
