Back to trying to keep a blog afloat and bounce ideas off my screen. Just got done revising Chapter 25 - A Lone Gear and released it. Bit of a process now, really. Upload it to Drive. Create a new page on my site. Update the previous chapter to link to this chapter. Now updating my page over at Patreon as well. (More on that in a future post!)
Had an ear to the ground for cryptocurrency for quite a while now. If this is your first time hearing this oddly-satisfying word, it's a form of exchange using digital information to securely pay for things. It's generated by people 'mining', or creating 'coins' with cryptography. Bitcoin is pretty much the poster-child for cryptocurrency and is being accepted by more and more companies as a form of tender.
What's the advantage? Security, ease-of-use, and fewer (if any) middle-men. Purchasing or donating with Bitcoin often doesn't incur any 'fees' (except sometimes a small 'miner fee' depending on your wallet/merchant tools) so more of your tender ends up in the hands of the intended individual/company.

Thankfully, resources over at /r/Bitcoin on Reddit and coinbase made it easy to set up! Also helped dissuade any reservations I had about using such an unusual currency. Look for the 'Donate Bitcoins' in the sidebar over at www.Adrala.com!
