My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

BM: Corey Silverstein, most profound industry attorney, representing talent and companies, he’s actually my best friend, met long time ago, before he passed the bar, mojohost has been using his legal services for the whole time he’s been a lawyer

TP: awesome, glad to hear that

BM: started august 1999

in health care before tech and adult entertainment

life moments, purchasing first house, getting married, 23-24 years old, decision, job that I had wasn’t inline with goals, 7 years into career, that going in all right places, decided wasn’t what signed up for, gave notice

started searching for business for sale

collection of adult website for sale, active in commerce, bought pay sites, started journey down path

first few years, bought websites that had revenue, 10-12k a month in rev, didn’t know when started, awful lot, didn’t know due diligence, didn’t know person selling was defrauding me, rocky start, management to make the best of it

sites were, all stolen content, fraud recurrering credit card database, deleted everything, rebuilding different niche sites with licensed content, starting all over again, before starting hosting company

established pay site program, for a few years also had phone sex marketing company, early on as site owner, trying to figure out what else I could promote

didn’t trust concept of affiliate programs, traffic was organic from search engines

got niche specific toll free premium rate entertainment lines

first conference may of 2000, on mission trying to find company there to do fulfillment

teach other webmasters to do what I’m doing, make .25, .50

back then, searching on internet, weren’t marketers there

early origin story

always been technically inclined, bought service, put in data center,

made friends in industry

started to re-sell some hosting to offset and lower bills

april of 2002, when I officially went into hosting business, running phone affiliate program,

current business partner today, upon his suggestion, started partnership, he was CTO managing all things technical, I was managing finances, sales, operations, been a long time since then

today over 1000 clients all over the world

1500 servers, 2 different data centers

several dozen employees doing technical support

quite a journey, watching all the tech, working with so many companies

the 1000 I host today represent more than 3000 individuals and companies I’ve worked with since we started

TP: blessings to you for taking on these opportunities and challenges, a lot of learning curves

BM: for sure, never really learned anything the easy way

remember having talks at trade shows, people arguing about giving away 15 second free video clips, around those years, people started to publish video on the internet, bandwidth used to be super expensive,, content was behind a paywall

typically a life cycle of 4-6 years, for someone’s business

so many amazing entrepreneurs, very few ideas and implementations you can create once and just sort of last forever

have to continue reinventing selves and products

catchphrase, that’s good mojo

corporate mantra, from sales to technical support

always in support of customers

give as much info as possible

as much as can, try to empower customers, with all the tools they need

much rather have creative entrepreneurs finding a home here that people with stagnant businesses

95% customers in adult entertainment or advertising space

busy in this space

1-2 years, making efforts, adding staff, augment marking, expand reach

amazing set of technical products, haven’t been reaching fullest audience

TP: appreciate longevity of your operation, definitely hanging in there, flash backs of those chokepoints in bottlenecks in bandwidth and streaming

survived different waves of politics/tech

difference between adult friendly and unfriendly web hosting services

pitch for why people need to do it right the first time, start with adult friendly tech stack for content

BM: my experience, as always a lot of preconceived notions

most basic level, being on internet, even buying a domain, they think godaddy

even when it comes to starting at very beginning, most registrars, have something that looks like a bundled plan,

hosting package, maybe includes domain, show low domain price, 9.99, details fine print, intro price, renews at price higher on year two

we’ve done, convenience for client base everyday low price on domains, include privacy services

.com, always 9.99 no higher, no upcharge for privacy, offer as convenience

for average person, challenging to pick a good web host, if not what experience is grounded in

10s of 1000s website selling hosting, most are resellers, reselling hosting services from other organizations

one or several servers in a data center, don’t own servers don’t own network, don’t own ip space, aren’t negotiating bandwidth, their providing tech support, renting server from hosting company

always gonna be a cheaper price for webhosting, paying for what you get

smaller companies, maybe a great match, get lucky, super attentive admin

wake up in middle of the night, respond timely, handle tickets quickly

don’t have economy of scale for support

when we started, literally, if in middle of night server went down, he’d have to get woken up to fix server

extreme example on small end of webhosting, dont think it’s good place to host with

dont’ have depth of experience, or buying power to assemble a good product

mojo host, servers in 2 continents, separate company in netherlands

1,500 servers online

one of things differentiates us the most

going from one end of spectrum, small web host, selling management on top of renting a real hosting company

opposite would be going with something like go daddy, huge company

challenge with opposite end, is that they have many many tiers of technical support experience, pick up phone, call, medium or complex question, get someone at first tier of tech support, navigate through technical bureaucracy, to get right advice

mojo host 25 senior sys admins, 5-15 years experience

spend several months teaching more, how to do things our way, we can be accountable to expectations/outcomes for customers

few hundred very large webhosting companies, I’m on small end of spectrum, we’re on of them based on traffic, client count, server count,

most of larger companies not selling high touch customer service product, they are trying to move quantities of servers, selling just based on price point, buying hosting can be really confusing

misleading

analogy, ever had unlimited cellular plan, only to find out its not unlimited?

Rate limiting/throttling, no body wants that

definitely don’t want that on a server

revenue tracks with customer experience

difference in cost, less than what you think

can explain how hosts buy bandwidth, how they do their internet routing,

we assemble best networking, best support team, hardware nerd

goal, to deliver everyday good price for great product, with support that’s amazing

proud of it

our tech support, not allowed to say no, work till blue in the face to help

programming advice, feedback on bad scripting, mindful of security considerations

manage to client success

independent creative thinker, problem solver

TP: more and more sold, a lot of my pain points are being nudged on a bit

realizing more and more, I probably have been shooting myself in the foot

BM: don’t beat yourself up too much

I see it a lot when people are buying

takes a connection, good conversation, have it explained to you

a buyer of hosting, always okay to ask why, always an explanation

there’s an answer for everything

truth of it is, on tech support, wage scales are very high for top notch, technical talent

staff used to cost me 30-45k a year 10 to 12 years ago, now in north america,

65-over 100k a year with full benefit package,

tech support may take an hour to solve your problem, complex trouble shooting

if you’re buying a plan that’s 10 or 20 or 50 or 99$ a month, there’s a real clock that’s ticking on the other endof the phone,

support difference, it would be very easy to try to layer that with less qualified tech support to average those costs down

I’ve had such a crack sys admin team

team is global

guys in us, michigan where headquarters, florida, maine, wisconsin

office in ukrain, 18 sys admins

2 in phillipenes

high standard for who your hiring, english skills, good team fit?

Fit for company culture, integrity, work ethic, creativity, attitude, positive attitude, make for great employees

physically living doesn’t matter so much

super high quality staff

don’t hire any candidates

TP: if I’m dealing with any service provider who’s not on board with adult industry, tip towing, egg shell walking, shy, enter what’s your domain, on support ticket, I cringe, will they be biased

BM: you never know,

personal views might affect outcome of what your trying to accomplish, that’s one risk factor, the other

big companies, broad sweeping policy changes that affect everybody

canadian web hosting company, didn’t want to host any more adult website, never got to speak with any principles of that entity, don’t know what rationale was, led to them having many customers that needed to find a new home

found us, seamlessly get those people moved over

helped them all win

more servers, more bandwidth, better or lower price

that’s the risk you run with medium size companies that think to have policies

with larger entities, even more complex risk factor,

example: abuse complaints can be a very wide spectrum of opinion, there’s the laws that exist, very real, all abide by those, when it comes to email or content related, obscenity, start getting into areas some of which well defined, others very subjective

when a client is sitting at a very very large web host, dozens or 100s of people in abuse department, handing broad spectrum they’re not invested in understanding what’s going on, what they’re looking at, maybe they don’t have to care… that right decisions being made, right actions being taken

we’ve got silverstein as attorney, see eye to eye on all of those issues

protect customers so they can feel safe if they’re doing good honest business

at same time, I do everything in my power that people doing bad things on the internet don’t have any safe places to hide, can’t do it on my network

another benefits to being at a host that’s so engaged with whats right/wrong legally and dare say morally, I’m able to keep whole flock of customers safer by making really smart decisions about what we will and wont’ allow on our network

mega hosts, often the victim of neighborhood that they’re in

making sales, everything a sign up page, not really conversation with customers

not interested …some fly by night spam nonsense, things that are deceitful can create bad internet network neighborhood

more often victim of ddos

beautiful things at mojohost, network, filled with good neighbors, makes everyone’s stuff safer, not looking to add every possible sale to mojohost, only seeking good customers

any indications that someone’s doing something fraudulent/illegal, happy to get them off our network, helps protect …other servers, protects IP reputation

TP: again all these flashbacks, being hacked by some vuln on some other shared host, not maintaining

you get what you pay for

you don’t get what you don’t pay for

BM: in order to keep my staff effective, don’t sell shared hosting, we do sell them to people, mostly friends and family, anyone we’ve known or met can talk to us, if don’t have a plan at your price point we’ll create one for you, good people doing good things on internet

shared hosting is massively over subscribed, dozens to hundreds of customers, hundreds to 1000s of domains and put on single server, problem is working under same installation of operating system, all same memory, ram, disk resources, hard to give somebody guarantee on quality of service at that price point

say you have wordpress site, one domain, hundred other people wordpress site on own domains, inexperienced, start adding things to wordpress, no consideration, exploits that theme or mod, when last update, how secured,

shared hosting, someone got rooted on the box, affects everybody’s websites

sharing ip addresses, now goofed for everybody

im not able to serve all of the masses, but that’s not the goal of the business

if you want a more predictable, more reliable, higher performance, more deeply supported experience you’re gonna have to pay a bit more, not necessarily a lot more, but a little bit more

10 a month to 50 a month, what are you getting what are you paying

company like mine, committed to industry, really resourceful

open line of communication, jack, keith, natalie, to our attorney,

if someone’s smart, tap relationships right, being in the club gets you access to everybody

travel the world, 10-12 adult conferences a year, meeting people all over the place sometimes that means, if you had a problem with say your paxum account, maybe I can connect you with someone to help you get it fixed

good mojo, I know such and such, see if I can help you get this squared away, other business value feel like we can add, for customers and friends

always happy to help whenever possible

TP: definitely stoked on that way of approaching it, I’ve felt very alone, naked and afraid, on the internet, I would say to be honest at this point, the threshold I’ve arrived at personally, I’ve been sort of in a bit of an incubator, experimenting, see if can find niche, find traction, it is what is, been what’s it’s been, now would be able to justify premium, more robust

can’t justify liability, not having team behind me

it wouldn’t be one of those 3 letter agencies to be the first ones to tell me I’m doing something wrong, it would be you and corey and everybody else, have all the security on your end correct, things you’d never know in your blindspot, never ending attacks

advanced round

what I’m desperately looking for now, cyber security, info sec, data breach, listening to podcasts

hole in most hosting service providers, some of them them allow multifactor authentication on cpanel, most don’t looking for ones that do, in today’s world, have shared secrets on server, evil made, insider, issue, public key, shell, mfa,

could you give me the elevator pitch on how the admin dashboard, cpanel, ect. Even ftp/ssh access, how can people have the most bulletproof secure access and management experience

BM:

blow your mind, hate selling people cpanel, recommend against it every chance we get

you’ve got managed hosting here’s your cpanel, have at it, doesn’t sound very managed, self servicing, hoping you don’t fuck things up

on top of it, baked into your costs, cpanel licensing fees, cpanel bought by larger entity, licensing very different, what does it mean to you

changed all licensing and royalty amounts

increased prices to consumer

some instances double or triple the fees

change in raw costs on licensing

cpanel has a great product, some alternatives, mostly at mojo, very different, no control panel, my staffs doing the work, you want to ad 5 domains, you put in a support ticket, tell us what the domains are, alright guys go in and add all the domains, we set up all the firewalls, add all email accounts. Like a consierge service

TP: feel like infinite attack surface anytime I log in

BM: …from tech perspective, staffed up with such qualified sys admins, more granular, directly command line, write on scripts to manage server, automate things on the back end, not like my guys going into control panel, copying and pasting into script, lots of things in backend, more efficient, more accurate, customize for betterment of client

when you order hosting for pretty much any other “regular host” getting default install, no tweaking anywhere, not database, …

we believe, best practices all of these different very specific areas, security, performance

might be paying a little more with us to have personal support, senior level sys admin, don’t have to know how to do the work, don’t have to know how to solve the problems, we’ll fix it, explain what happened, explained what options are, removed learning curve,

not just default, taylored to support your needs for some part of your runway

experts at helping people grow your business

we’ve got all that experience

you could start with small vps, dare I say shared hosting account, specialists at highly complex set ups

we help guide our customers into those solutions

we have the way we want to do things…do these complex set ups, end up writing wikis for each client

TP: definitely just blew my mind, dream come true, never would have thought that far out of the box, foot bound by all my experienced about 20 years, web master, designer, always renting, bouncing from one nightmare meltdown to another

BM: gap from when where you’re buying before and where you could be buying may be 10s of dollars

…we’ll do the whole move for you, we’ll move em you test tem

TP: want to get into some weeds with some of your tech guys, gonna make the commitment to make the migration as soon as possible, mind has been blown

the thing that is the deal breaker that sounds like you’re able to soothe my stress around these deal breakers

BM: satisfaction guarantee

I want your complete satisfaction

we’re all human, mistakes do get made, work for a client, work hard for them

with us, we are always going the extra step

mistakes are made, happens some times, important to us that we own it, responsibility, apology, real explanation

very subjective from there on out

get very few requests for invoice credits

my hope is we’re always having a conversation

corrective measures so doesn’t happen in future

things come up, issue at next staff meeting,

something really bad does happen, wanting to overcompensate, can’t insure somebody’s whole business….do best we can

TP: what I could hope for is something almost unimaginable in other paradigms, what I’ve always wanted to do is actually have the engineers behind the delivery of my content, have the master plan of threat model, growth trajectory, proactive about hedging risk, move slowly, absorb surprise scaling, client-consultant relationship, within reason is bundled within hosting plan, wiki for client, that’s the level of now we’re talking high level , intimate codevelopment of a brand

BM: even if you did find another good host, give attention, whole experience breaks down at initial sales process, sales person…

cool thing about mojohost, we all work together when needed, depending on clients needs, not managing to monthly bonus, no trickery, not trying to upsell, scaled business without that, doesn’t work to my benefit in some ways, long term establishes rapport with customers, trust them with business

very consistent experience

if you’re business changes on the fly, get some crazy social media, something goes viral, we figure out all that billing shit afterwards, if it’s an event already happening, happening now, post mortem, we can figure, this is maybe how we need to change your plan, resources

very fluid, if you’re going down or up….

Make changes retroactively, bigger, smaller, which ever direction it needs to go

TP: great general overview, I’m sold, I’m moving forward, honestly having corey on your team is all it took, wonderful vibe from you

my biggest wet dream is to have sophisticated penetration testing/red teaming, sure you have access to the kind of people who would be trust worthy in that department, hesitant to go shopping for pen testers not knowing if they’re just gonna have a good old time, joy riding my site backwards and forwards, installing back doors, a lot of trust in that kind of stuff

BM: we take a very interesting approach, within your desire to do that, experiences in the past, fears of the future, best place to take that conversation, could happen in support ticket, we could talk through and explain over the phone, Vps, any of the guys on our staff, really nerds, love what they do, understand your business, what the risks are

when we install on server, not default install, its a mojo installation, no ssh or ftp access unless ip is white listed

part of list of best practices on how we want to deploy service, I’m warrantying your whole service on my network and hosting company

sometimes might mean you may ask for something and we say no, always a reason for it, always based on experience, doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to accomplish what the clients want to do

happy to help any way we can

TP: gives me chills, want to not have a million options that open me up to all kinds of fuckery, want a very hardened experience

have people with more experience watching over it, being that war room

BM: first thing you truly want to look at , what’s all the software you’re running on your server

battle tested software solutions in adult space, serve us very well, maybe ongoing cost …some upfront fee, but you’re buying something that’s been installed on 1000s of sites, storage cloud, cdn, turn key

a lot of security stuff comes down to good software choice and bad software choices

hard way seems like easy way…cheap plugins

different trade offs

we can help clients, guide into make right choice for business at right point in time

I boot strapped my business, understand what it’s like

have to remember, trying to build an environment for self, predictability, scalability, safety, follow path others have gone before you, its a good way to go, expert level experience

software that’s been battle tested

10s of millions, 100s of millions of vistors a day

bad programming makes for bad hosting

always gonna be working hard to compensate for bad programming

people miss point of that

don’t see how much extra its costing them to use something they could have paid a little more upfront for that’s gonna work better

TP: pay the farmer or pay the doctor, ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure, how much does it cost for the average data breach settlement, pay upfront for more hardening, security,

BM: appreciate being on podcast

TP: can’t get enough

BM: mojohost.com, international, mojohost.eu, two separate portals

have conversation with us

sales@mojohost.com, copies whole team, someones always working or watching their email

skype call or zoom call, want to learn more about your business, experience in the past

use all of our experience to make the best solution that meets your budget and your technical requirements

make your hosting free while you’re doing a move

concerned about quality job, customers number 1 over here

affiliate program pays really well

can set people up as an affiliate, referral, code, 8% residual, very personable here

TP: xbiz show, andaz hotel, rooftap rager, mojohost, silverstein legal party, had that good time, coming full circle, can’t thank you enough, corey enough, look forward to next steps, having you on again soon

 

Charles Hoskinson with Bird on Shoulder

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Charles Hoskinson TPP268

Play

In this episode I share words of praise for my favorite hero in the crypto/blockchain space, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson

My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

Coming from a place of bliss

Immune systems thrive on bliss

with all due respect to suffering, sick and dying, which we could all be one of us

podcast could be titled my 2020 crypto investment thesis, heart of it is my crypto crush, bromance with charles hoskinson, who I have been a fan of now since the end of 2017 where I first got interested, made first purchase of ADA, token or coin that operates on the cardano network, a multi stage, multi phase very complex cryptocurrency platform

story for me of what I would call crypto man crush, I don’t have any personal connection to, don’t have any rapport, just putting out these words because this has been my hope, most optimism I have in heart and mind comes from his work, not just him as a thought leader, innovator, genius, mathematician, cryptocurrency serial entreprenuer

he is a node in his own network, simply another node, by design

I’m spending some time here not to “shill” a crypto token” this is not investment advice, it is an opportunity for me to express from the depths of my soul what I find to be the most optimistic, not just investment opportunity this is for the soul and spirit of liberation of humanity, the spirit of liberation from slavery exploitation abuse tyranny, the core beliefs, principles, values of any freedom loving,

the most universal aspiration is to be free form tyranny, so the study of human freedom is an infinite study, for me the ultimate current embodiment if I chose one person who is a founder of an ensemble cast of geniuses, with the spirit and ethics of liberation at their hearts

what has captured my heart and imagination it goes back, the story , to put it in sequence

why have I arrived at the pinnacle of my techno optimism resting on the shoulders of CH and company

why have I arrived, how

sequence of events goes back to my religions scholarship of bitcoin once I began to realize gains, rabbit hole, andreas antonopolis, the bitcoin podcast, omar bam, cryptos news

shy about exchanges, had to go through multiple currency swaps to get to an alt coin you may want exposure to, the story begins with my other crypto crush bromance, crypto bobby, he and omar bam, he’s the one who’s explainer videos got me to feel comfortable and confident, in understanding how to do professional trading on an exchange, not just buy, actually getting some understanding of how to place different kinds of orders, move from one currency to another, do the math, its really intimidating, scary, can lose nerve, lose mind, lose money

I was very hesitant, but crypto bobby was the sheperd, dangerous places, sharks and whales will eat your lunch, so much respect to him

his best investment of 2017 of all the icos, was his investment in this thing called cardano, I was at the time, I’m just gonna buy whatever crypto bobby has in his portfolio, because he knows more than me

vegas/lottery money, threw I tiny bit at what he was recommending, most of hit has been under water, maybe I glanced at the white papers, but the thing that got my attention was, easy sell, CH co-founder of ethereum, not just a script kitty sitting in a basement, copying a white paper, not vapor ware, not just the ico bubble

of the shit coins that will never come back to life, cardano, not just the project, the personality, the captivating charisma, not like a false charisma, like a ted talk charisma, watching the CH ted talk, between that and what’s called the white board videos

breaks down 1st, 2nd, generation blockchains, how they’ve reached multiple deal breaking scalability, governability, interoperability

in the trenches, very experienced, developing a platform play, as they say in crypto trading world, this is a blockchain that smart contracts and applications using the backbone will be able to build on top of

bitcoin basically just transferring value back and forth, you could be on top of that, but lacks functionality to run more complex computations, stories of transactions can’t be processed

ethereum, infinite complex programmability, on the base layer

at the peak of the market in 2017, thanks to getting served up by crypto bobby watching the ted talk, the white board videos, in a position to take some of my bitcoin wealth, which was not a lot, I wasn’t mining in 2010, I’ve barely been above water, shaken out a few times, weathered the storm, it’s been about what you have loyalty and allegiance to, difference between investing and trading

white board videos give the lay person, I’m not a math, not cryptographer, not a computer scientist, just a power user, copy and paste code, web admin, designer, marketer, more about the graphical user interface, will hire a programmer if I have to go deeper than that, enough understanding for the white board video, but some was going over my head,

now a few years later, studying to catch up on this movement, watched again recently, its so deeply profound, years later I can actually in real time, everything he’s staying clicks for me, I could be enamored with several other competing projects, I put skin in the game because I liked him, this project was really intelligently evolving, learning from triumphs and failures of bit coin and ethereum

more peer reviewed, more academic, not move fast and break things, actual governments, actual economies, critical infrastructure can be built on

he’ll be an exalted position, diplomacy, academic rigor

that’s what sold me, I didn’t continue to buy all the way down, put skin in the game, everything underwater, project in stages of development, other projects crashed and burned and sped ahead, classic story of the tortoise and the hare

I don’t feel a personal connection through the socialbility of the internet personalities of any of the other founders of competing projects, that’s why I can say, I can list off not the selling points of buying cardano or ada to put in investment portfoilio, if I will give any advice, if you want to feel optimistic, about the future of this planet and promise of crypto anarchy, wise, not juvenile, intelligent mature anarchism

talk to your financial advisor about if, when, why, how, what, where cardano fits in your portfolio

I see opportunity to learn from a master of the political economy of the planet earth, a personable master, synthesis of wayne and garth in one person

down to earth, approachable, entertaining, fun, human

unsocialable tech geniuses who don’t make an effort, they just don’t have the calling, the personal, not connecting with people

not a politician or technocrat, it’s just a master

if you want to learn to be a ninja or samurai, there is a sacred devotional traditional classical meritocratic relationship to have with a master

if you’re student and don’t know where to start to understand cryptography, financial technology, the stock market, the systems of government around the world, the international banking system, all the digital fabric that stitches all this together, where am I gonna go to learn all that stuff

all of my crypto mentors have made the difference of me being a beggar or me having options

respect, admiration, meritocracy of those who’ve been further down a path

why do I sing these praises so much, I’ve watched the youtube videos, have subscribed and been a fly on the wall during his AMA

incentivized test net, more reasons to love

I wake up every day feeling optimistic being in a world where the principles represented by CH are being pushed forward against all forces of evil, fraud, manipulation, so long as he remains in good standing with this ethics, I’m going to say that, without having met in person, here’s why I’m so thrilled about his work

as much as any of my tantra mentors, he’s my financial guru mentor

he’s a farmer and gardener, that’s going to excite me very much knowing that he has that balance and that connection to the earth, also mushroom worship, into medicinal plants, giggles about psychdelics, advocate of medicinal psilocybin, fan of Paul Stamets, checking of serious boxes for me, pro shamanic liberation, most important of all things, being connected to the earth through farming

if there was on person on earth where someone should gift him a permaculture design course

there have got to be more permaculture educated crypto millionaries in the world, there’s not enough, the fact that he has a farm, grows vegetables, retrofitting his zones, I just can’t imagine, he hasn’t mentioned it once so far yet

I could go on forever about applications of blockchains in permaculture designs, that’s what makes me very optimistic, thanks to these guys, not to many other geeks and crypto millionaries have their hands in the soil, low hanging fruit to turn on to permaculture design if they aren’t already into it, that’s very exciting to me

you could be steeped in sustainability, green tech, radical politics and maybe only barely bump into permaculture without having gone down that rabbit whole, everyone who’s all about bitcoin, satoshi rabbit whole, permaculture is more profound and empowering, not to compare, the enthusiasm that permaculturist have its very similar

words of vin armani, invest in the revolution and get rich doing it

its not about speculation, whales manipulating markets, still in 90percent speculation, love CH because the price is the currency is not the metric to be watching, it’s the amount of usage of the platform by developers, by apps

not going into why I choose

if you ask me what crypto to I have the most allegiance to, it’s not bitcoin, its not ethereum, it’s cardano because of the love I have for CH, he’d have to have a severe fall from grace for that to change

who are you going to be a student of who is a master of the world we live in and the future that’s about to unfold

you’re gonna want to have options with digital privacy, financial privacy, security, intelligence, all these things are being accessorized within cardano, intelligence behind it, rigorous academic approach, battle hardened, test with dick waving ego maniacal rich douche bag hate, he’s been hated on because he’s a maverick, I respect that, I salute him,

I hope you can catch up on why it is important to study this man, of all the people you were forced to study in k-12 you studied a lot of men, I don’t respect or like or appreciate many of them

one thing I was trained to do was study men, and this man is worth, whatever semesters of school you had to study somebody in history, whatever it was, take that approach, this modern genius renaissance man, take that approach to it to understanding his perspective and analysis, very accessible, does amas if you want to ask him something jump on his ama, subscribe to his youtube channel

I didn’t get in early enough or put in enough to be rich from bitcoin, but so infinitely wealthy in terms of hope and invigoration

the revolution that never happened when iw as a teenager, the anarchist revolution that never happened, the streets of the WTO, glamorizing machismo form of anarchism, juvenile

cypherpunks were writing the code to elegantly subvert the entire system

I was fighting at the lowest point of leverage, fighting cops in the street because they will break your skull, break bones, deport you, put you in prison, I barely got out, times where I barelyi got out with my bones intact, my share of arrests, evasions, escaped

I’m not putting down protest, all of the screaming, chanting, protest signs, I should have spent at least half the energy to study the subversive potential of hacking, and crypto anarchism, and the cypher punks, I didn’t I’m late, I’m not one of the rich people, I’m wealthy now having studied it having it transform my life

love that I feel for satoshi nakamoto, I think it’s the heart and soul of Dave Klieman and tretchery of Craig Wright

the people who want to believe in benevolent satoshi, I’d like to know more about dave kleiman, what made him tick, do some investigative journalism around that, its sorely lacking

I have not been satisfied by the crypto journalism coverage of the works of dave kleiman

how is there not any breadcrumb trail of his code, of his previous work being studied, total bermuda triangle over this guy

back to love and wealth

so much passion and optimism and love and freedom and empowerment, more empowerment than I ever go from any other drudgery of anarchism that was all utopian pipe dream bullshit, drama, demoralizing net lose of youth, vitality, no return on investment

love for satoshi, I hope the heart and soul is the benevolence

maybe I’m projecting that love onto somebody, the love I would be, as a fan, if people want to love tony robbins, I guess I love him, he’s transformed my life, enjoying podcast, and lectures for years

for me CH is like the love I have for tony robbins, and absorbs the love I have for satoshi, he of all people is carrying on satoshi’s vision, not just satoshi, the vision is the cypherpunks, egalitarianism through math, beyond any of the countless people

this goes back a very very long time, liberation through math, that is a beautiful study

india, the math and science of islam, so much beauty to behold in the history of the best of how math has been used

john zerzan would not be a huge fan of this meditation but when used wisely for the benefit of liberation

new profound respect for rules without rulers, I love andreas too so so much

the projected love I have for satoshi, I love andreas, that love of those who are your mentors, gurus, masters, teaching you helping you navigate the best of the spirit of cryptography, math and cryptoanarchism

who has the most integrity, who’s the most mature, who perseveres hold virtue against all criticism and all odds, and be so personable as to earn the respect of the elites of the world, from financial to governments to most destitute

all stand to gain from the leveling of the playing field

studied him from afar, choose what carter thomas said, brought me a ton of appreciation for, anybody could have told me you could invest in tech stocks, I was an eco anarchist, anarcho primitivist, peak of idealism, in teens and 20s that would be like selling my soul, selling out to have anything to do with the financial system

there’s a million things I’m hypocritical about in my purchases, what I let slide in my supply chain ethics, but the idea of I could just invest in everything that gets people rich in the world the shit that rapes the planet and is build by slaves

beholden to cardano, being able to have whatever money you don’t put into vices and give to the man, whatever you can pay yourself with, give yourself a salary, you give money to grocery store, tax man, how about salary to yourself, percentage of salary

trying to catch up on the foolishness of not having money, investible wealth, there wasn’t an option

I’m never gonna touch owning any stocks because it’s all evil, that narrative, partially true, more nuanced, you could invest in ethical corporations

money phobic conditioning doesn’t serve you, didn’t serve me

what matters now it’s possible to dare I say have a 100% ethical vehicle to deploy capital, potential for there to be a return on investment, for me I’m interested in more than a financial gain, I’m interested in participating

one of my desktop background images, ch and friends planting a tree at second anniversary party of cardano, how much closer to my heart can you get

the opus of a man

to have warm feelings of adoration and respect someone who is a master and teacher

I want to say, if you’re thinking about killing yourself right now, binge watch andreas and ch, and you’ll never think of killing yourself again, you’ll be so thrilled to be a live in this moment of opportunity

this revolution, its been the most healing thing for my heart, my heart has bled, it’s been a bleeding heart for a long time, bleeding since I was raped as child, bleeding so long for a revolution that didn’t betray me exhaust me or deplete me

I am getting well and wealthy and healed by a revolution of crypto anarchist math geniuses

I would befriend the geeks, learn from them, kept them close, respected their talents, watched their wizardry

not going to be shaken out, I will have strong hands

enthusiasm for life, happens when you understand crypto

ch was significant factor in that extremely important chapter in the history of crypto anarchy, financial technology

I love ethereum but I love cardano more

a blossoming, an evolution of that

it includes and transcends, ken wilbur,

ch represents inclusion of and transcendence of cypherpunk legacy, geeks behind the internet, bitcoin, ethereum, hopefully this ever evolving and intelligently designed, big tent, compliance, scalability, governance, high transaction throughput, security, privacy, identity

reality of whole planet of different jurisdictions

masterminding, not a lone as he has done, financing research, research based approach, incorporating cryptographers of the world, mature, responsible fashion to where I don’t just put my money into this project, I put my heart and soul as much as I can say I was transformed by tony robbins, love him, am a fan, recommend him

if I get in certain funk, bam, tony robbins hour of power, it’s a resource that’s always there, not saying put your life savings, go in debt, take out a loan, sell your house, try to chase this penny stock, not what I’m saying

admiration, respect, looking up to, being role modeled by

not juvenile in a naive way, but in the fuck yeah I want to emulate your success, the purist adoration, it doesn’t mean they’re perfect or a god, you see them perform, they’re a master of something I respect and want to achieve in

the money is shiggles on top of the thrill of being a fan of the heros of the space

if you’re an adult you can bet some of your wealth accordingly

seeing people you believe are bad asses and what to emulate what they’re doing

he doesn’t have to be perfect, just willing to admit faults, be open to criticism, transparent

anchoring into heart space saying prayers and well wishes, and support, spiritual warrior crystal grid pranic healing, purple breathing send a lot of love to this man, understand him, I beg you

what he has published in his works, what he’s trying to do for you and the world

project love and healing , positive energy around him, as he ascends, as a master

his path of jedi ship if you will, he’s being forged in a fire of toxic astral sabotage and counterintelligence, nasty demonic bullshit

if you’re a tantric you have your sex magic rituals, put this man on your list of people to pray for, bless him with the orgasmic energy of eternal goddess bliss through kundalini awakenings

absolute honor, dignity, reverence and respect

we have this feeble frail imperfect tissue flesh animal human form but when we claw and dance our way to our highest self, climbing kundalini shakti energy, higher selves, godhood, goddesshood of ourselves and our beloved

invite the avatar of this man into the astral realms and armor him with all of the divine love that you can
