Earthen Mysteries

Perhaps this is but a fluke, but It appears the earthcoin wallet I downloaded disappeared from my computer. Fortunately I had not yet used it, so I did not lose anything, but I still find it odd it more or less disappeared without a trace… Perhaps I will learn the cause later. I do recall previously my antivirus software deleted some of my cryptocurrency mining software , but never the wallet.

Got first tip on reddit!

Just the other day I got my very first tip on Reddit. Actually I got two, prior to this experience I had never checked my Reddit inbox, and when I did for the first time, much to my excitement, I learned I had two tips awaiting me. I then looked closer, much to my dismay, to realize that the tips had expired a day ago since I had not accepted them. Fortunately, I soon got another tip, which was much greater than the others.

This is all thanks to dogecoin, which in my experience has been a lot of fun :). Here is there main subreddit:

Dogecoin Millionaire!

In light of DogeCoins recent birthday, I thought I would share a video about it. This should answer any possible questions you have on the subject!

Ok, ok, maybe it actually doesn't explain anything. Its still pretty amusing though haha. The Dogecoin community is such an interesting one, with so many people really and truly wanting the coin to be a success. You can also look back to here for my first post on Dogecoin. Although, I don't explain it too much there either.

North Korea you win today.

In my cryptocurrency adventures, I am always looking for a way to mine my own. I only own a laptop and thus it is not practical for me to mine on it, despite the fact that I have a fixed utility bill. I recently acquired an another computer that I intended to mine cryptocurrency with. Prior to this, I also just wanted to have fun with it. I found a copy of Red Star ( the North Korean operating system) and attempted to install it. I soon ran into an unforeseeable problem…. mainly the fact that I don’t know any Korean. So that needed that. I guess Kim Jung Un wins this one.

I also failed at mining, which is too bad. It had been nearly a year since I mined bitcoin and these script mining seems to be a bit different.  I really didn’t invest much time into it this time though. The computer had networking issues and had to plugged in without a router to work, among other issues. To make the story short I attempted to mine Doge and Earthcoins. One aspect of mining that I do not enjoy is the fact that most mining software is flagged as malware. I also had to return the computer, and thus this adventure has come to an end.
