    Do you think that the central banks will ruin crypto with their own currency and shut out others?

    That seems like a possible scenario to me. Today, most crypto conversations are about Bitcoin being a currency and "number go up". It's only seen as a get-rich-quick scheme and that would be super easy to crush by central banks in a second. However, there's hope. It all depends if people who...

    GOLD! Take Your Computer Security Seriously! YOU Are At Risk!

    I'd say it's more like having a whole swiss bank in your pocket, not just 2FA :) The above is just one of the possible solutions. Similarily as you have your credit cards setup, you could set up a crypto wallet in your browser or phone and pay wherever you want. The above example is the...

    GOLD! Take Your Computer Security Seriously! YOU Are At Risk!

    Posts here are quite old but I wonder if any of you guys would consider crypto as a solution. Hear me out. Long story short: You can use a hardware wallet with USD stable coin and spend money directly from that wallet. This separates money management from your computer and removes the risk of...

    Does privacy mean anything to anyone anymore?

    Yes, I fully agree. However, I still think that there's a lot of people who kind of get it, or are privacy fighters like me. Like @MHP368 mentioned, DuckDuckGo and Brave are doing quite well. Brave is adding 1 mln users a month as we speak and the whole marketing message is about privacy...

    Does privacy mean anything to anyone anymore?

    You have a technical background, don't you? PGP (and other stuff) is not common knowledge. Yes, that's a sad reality. There's not much you can do about smart phones because it's not the phone that is spying on you but the app you installed. Unless there some hidden deal with the manufacturer...

    Does privacy mean anything to anyone anymore?

    How exactly do you use them? Do you have one burner email and one burner prepaid card? Do you use them for all the things that you want to stay anonymous? How do you decide where to pay with prepaid and where to use regular email and card?

    Does privacy mean anything to anyone anymore?

    Thanks for your answer! I'm thinking more about sign up, payments and emails from a user perspective. Think of it this way: Did you ever find signing up using email and password annoying or inconvenient? For example, you wanted to try out some app quickly and you didn't want to sign up just...

    Does privacy mean anything to anyone anymore?

    Hi Everyone, I'm building a privacy blockchain app (silkey.io) and I'm wondering if anyone can relate to the problems it's trying to solve. I'd like to see if the problems listed on the website are important to you and how are you solving them today. Please visit silkey.io and let me know your...

    Dreams vs making money

    If by MMR you mean some fixed monthly income than I think not. My clients expect hourly invoices every time. The closest I got to MMR was when I created Security Token on the blockchian. It happened totally by accident. I made it for one client and kept copyrights for the source code. Then I...

    Dreams vs making money

    Yes, I did. Some things she said, I can relate quite well. I see that scaling consulting is a well-known problem but I kind of gave up on it and focused on building products. All my clients come from upwork and only 1 out of 10 is reasonable. The rest is pain to work with. I have no idea how to...

    Dreams vs making money

    Thank you everyone for your answers. Here's my take after a few days of thinking. I'll look for a mentor. I'll keep doing consulting and do my best not to sacrifice my side hustle. It is what it is. I'll focus on solving problems instead of making "cool blockchain" things only a few people...

    Dreams vs making money

    I think the difference between enjoying consulting and hating it is the client. Thanks for the links, I'm listening to them right now. It's been a common theme in several responses to focus on a user need not my own desires. Definitely something to think about. The client is what makes...

    Dreams vs making money

    It's like I'm hearing myself. I can work for 8h maximum doing creative work. After that I can keep working but it can't be problem-solving. It must be something simpler, easy. My mind just shuts off. I can't count how many times I was working late, trying to find a solution, gave up in the...

    Dreams vs making money

    Thanks! Maybe I didn't sound like it but I do appreciate consulting. It gave me the flexibility that I never had before. The problem is that my product is so deep within the blockchain ecosystem that the user base is silly small. That's the problem with all blockchain apps, we almost have no...

    Dreams vs making money

    Hi, Everyone! I’m Tom, I’m a blockchain consultant and (so far failing) entrepreneur. I’m looking for advice from more experienced minds and since I don’t have anyone to ask, I decided to give the forum a shot. It’s going to be a bit long but I wanted to give you as much info as possible to be...

    HOT TOPIC A genuine MASSIVE coronavirus business idea/need.

    What do you guys think about the overall shift to doing things remotely? Do you think that this health crisis could be a catalyst for a number of online businesses (new and current)? If customers are forced to do everything remotely for a number of months, they should build new behavior...

    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    Read it and liked it. Although, I think Fastline was more life-changing for me. Unscripted is more of a manual.
