How I will spend my #TallyHoWallet reward money

By diaperfinancingfund | CryptoSensei | 12 Aug 2022


This week, I was ecstatic to find out that I was one of the winners of the recent #TallyHoWallet writing contest. In recognition of my stellar effort in overcoming life’s challenges to pen this piece, I was awarded with $15 worth of ETH. It isn’t much but it’s honest work.

If I have learnt my lesson from getting my fingers burnt by Hodlnaut’s fiasco, I ought to transfer this ETH to my cold wallet and keep adding to it so that it will grow as formidable as Mount Fuji. Alas, life has other plans. I was confronted with this unforeseen development - this week too. What are the odds?!

If you haven’t heard it yet, you heard it first. So Moons - the crypto you derive from shitposting on r/cryptocurrency - are gonna turn mainstream and are to be migrated over to Arbitrum Nova, a scaling network on the Ethereum mainnet.

One man’s meat is another man’s prison. While some users rejoiced at this monumental news, I was slightly dismayed to be honest. In previous months, I could just swap my Moons for LTC by using MoonsSwap, but it seems that I had to first transfer my Moons to my MetaMask wallet. And in order to make good of these Moons, it seems like I have to pay gas fees. The following screenshot details how I must pump in some ETH to my main account on MetaMask before I can trade Moons for cash on RCPswap. Honestly, this just seems like too much work for me. And the idea of having to pay gas fees - no matter how cheap they are - just doesn’t sit well with me. It’s like forking out money before I earn money.

Well, call it serendipity or fortuitous  timing or whathaveyou, but maybe divine intervention made it such that I should win $15 ETH so that I could explore the Arbitrum Nova network and come back to educate my discerning readers. Knowledge is power, so thank goodness I have ‘free’ money to embark on new endeavours. Once I reframed my mind, I felt immensely better about this whole situation.

Guess you guys can expect to look forward to an article about how I navigated the Arbitrum Nova network!
