It all started when a random American man trolled our iconic Marina Bay Sands on his FB page. He captioned this famous Singapore landmark “Downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee 😮😮 It's Beautiful 🤯". Boy, did he get us Singaporeans fired up. We instant...

Weary of the cowboy hat?

27 Feb 2024 1 minute read 0 comments cryotosensei

The cowboy hat is the best human nature experiment ever. About a month ago, I waxed lyrical about the cowboy hat, explaining how it was a great discovery of intrinsic motivation (#398760). My focus was on the hat at all times. Darned if I lose it. To...

Okay, you did it. You took the plunge. You signed up for Stacker News either by stumbling upon it or through a referral link. Like this: I realise that some of my referees stopped using SN after a while. I don’t know exactly why, but fret not, Sense...

Stacker News: most reliable way of stacking sats

17 Feb 2024 1 minute read 2 comments cryotosensei

In another life, I stacked sats using these 7 different methods: #160020. I don’t know whether it is just me, but most of these methods have dried up. I cannot earn sats through my steps because even if I want to sell my privacy, sMiles doesn’t recog...

Teach me about your Nostr habits

Mine was dreadfully simple. Downloaded Damus and played Cowdle (guess a six-letter word within six tries) compulsively. However, Apple subsequently issued a death sentence on Damus - no zapping allowed. This might have prompted the founder of Cowdle...

When will we reach the Bitcoin Standard?

13 Feb 2024 1 minute read 0 comments cryotosensei

I have a rather pessimistic view of this. I think most people will regard Bitcoin as a speculative asset and be reluctant to spend their sats.   Unless companies like Bitwage expand tremendously and allow the general public to receive their wages in...

Second day of Chinese New Year. I’m at my wife’s colleague’s house, supporting her by keeping an eye on our children while she yaks merrily with her colleagues. Sounds like a recipe for boredom. But it got me thinking about how much of Chinese cultur...

Yes I realise that I’m preaching to the converted here. However, I inexplicably got two referrals in two days and am earning passive income in the form of sats. This makes me want to go on the offensive to secure more referrals. Intend to post this o...
