I had gone early to the Kyalla Farmers Market to get a growler of Dragonfruit Kombucha from Hippie Kombucha. Our local Artisan Kombucha Brewer.


As I pulled up to park the car, I received a notification from Coingecko that "Bitcoin has officially completed its 4th halving." That was exactly 8.19 am AWST.


I meet Mr Kombucha from Hippie Kombucha at our local Scarborough Sunset Market. I turned up to buy our Kombucha. Mr Kombucha says to me 

"Are you HODLing?"

Now this threw me for a few seconds until I realised I was wearing my favourite Bitcoin t-shirt. We became instant friends. 

Note: Holding means something else from my past.

So back at the Kyalla Farmers Market, Mr Kombucha mentions the Halvening is due later today. "Mr Kombucha mate, it's already happened"

We celebrated this glorious day with a cup of Mango Kombucha and a chat about Bitcoin and Monero. Mr Kombucha is big on Monero, being an integral part of their exit plan.

Before I return to work I am going to visit their brewery and have a good sit down chat with Mr Kombucha. Don't get much chance at markets to get into the nitty gritty. People keep coming up and buying Kombucha. Not only does it interrupt the flow but one has to be rather circumspect about what one actually says.

But Mr Kombucha did make some interesting observations about Monero. They can't get enough Monero. Cause the CEX have cut off their Monero on ramps, it has affected the current market value. But one day people will wake up and the demand for Monero will be organic (real). He is talking about a post CBDC world. Can't wait to continue this conversation in earnest.

Kyalla Farmers Market (P2P In The Real World)

Would have liked to have spent longer talking to Mr Hippie Kombucha but had to get home so we could attend the Scarborough Beach Meditation Program at 10.30 am AWST.


On my way out I picked up some more Florence Fine Foods Basil Pesto and Komesco Sauce. Great on crackers or corn chips with our home made Hummus. 


And some more Nanna Glori's Pickle from The Nanna Shop. Most of the Nanna's are now deceased but luckily they passed on their recipes to The Nanna Shop. This goes great with the Basil Pesto, Komesco Sauce and home made Hummus.


My day just got better and better.

Where were you and what were you doing when the 4th Halvening happened?

How did you celebrate #HappyHalvening2024?


One more little anecdote for you guys and gals.

Was driving our grandson to school and it was a Friday (day before the halvening).

He was not looking forward to going to school, you know the feeling, it had been a big week.

I reminded him it was Friday, the school week was nearly over and it will be the weekend. I told him what I was going to do that day. He just said

"Earning Bitcoin!!!"

"Yeap mate, earning Bitcoin for you."

He is only 5 and already knows more about Bitcoin than most people in the world.

Zcash (ZEC)

$$$ In Your Bank


Cash is King. PureProfile pays about $9/hr AUD to complete their surveys. Paid to your UK, US, NZ or Ozzy bank account. Max withdrawal is $70 AUD per 60 days. Pays to create a profile with good demographics e.g. female in mid to late 30's with 1x 5 year old child. Use your birthday but just change the year. Don't forget to adjust your age each birthday. Best part is they also pay 10 cents not to complete a survey. 10 per day = $1 * 60 days = $60. Lot more time efficient to not complete the surveys. Also has Gift Card and movie ticket options if you don't want to buy crypto with your earnings. Had a Raiz Investment option for awhile until they got in trouble with the regulators.


Solana (SOL)

As Solana is part of the Grandsons portfolio, getting free SOL is of interest. We have only been able to find 3 faucets that pay out in SOL tokens.  This is more of a community notice for the like minded SOL collectors and the more adventurous.


Been using solfaucet regularly for over a year. Earn 0.00001 SOL per day, instantly paid to your Solana address. All new addresses must maintain the minimum rent-exempt balance of 0.00089088 SOL to be able to claim from the faucet.  No referral program. Is supported in part by the Shinobi Systems validator. Our #1 SOL faucet by far, for speed, ease of use and payout is fixed amount of SOL.


Earn roughly 0.00000250 SOL every 6 minutes, . Minimum withdrawal direct to your SOL wallet is 0.00100000 SOL. Referral program pays 25% commission. Takes a bit of getting used to the pop-ups. Depends on how keen you are for KYC free SOL. Was our #3 SOL faucet until FaucetCrypto blocked us. Now has the #2 spot by default. Still testing out this site, despite being a pain in the arse, over halfway to the minimum payout. Feel free to take it for a test ride and report back how you found it.


Earn free coins every 20 minutes and withdraw as Solana (minimum 4000 coins/0.00001800 SOL). Earn more coins with PTC, offer-walls, level up rewards. Earn 20% commission on referrals. Site's business model is similar to Cointiply. Took a day to reach minimum withdrawal. Shame they blocked our access after 32 days. Was our #2 SOL faucet but has been relegated #3. Feel free to take it for a test ride and report back how you found it.


One advantage of viewing PTC ads and earning extra coins on Cointiply, is you are exposed to countless faucet and crypto earning sites. Guess what the people behind Litepick have released Solpick. Minimum withdrawal 0.01 SOL. Will keep you updated as we poke and prod the site. Currently stuck on the registering part, won't accept password as it needs to be at least 6 characters. Not a good start. So proceed with caution SOL collectors.
