My short bio: I run a blog about Bitcoin news and trading , I wrote a <20 page e-Book explaining Bitcoin for non-technical audiences , and my day job is staring at charts of Bitcoin (or other cryptocurrencies) and guessing where they’re going to go. My job is a mix of voodoo, intuition, science, and news. Others who do what I do often use more voodoo–I prefer to stick to the latter triad.
Before getting into this, I was a professional TCG player and a successful entrepreneur who co-owned a business reselling TCG cards (and WoW loot cards). I have a lifelong love of TCGs, and I still enjoy writing and recording videos for iHearthU , one of the premier Hearthstone strategy websites. If you want to know more about my past, there’s an About the Author page on my website.
My Proof: Twitter status announcing this AMA.
I chose to run this AMA for 9 hours because I wanted to be around to answer any and all questions. I’m happy to explain any part of what Bitcoin is or how it works, what my job is or how it works, how to play TCGs well, what I learned from TCGs, or just about anything else. This is an AMA, and I take the second A very seriously. I plan to answer every post.
I’ll be interrupting this AMA from 8PM to 9PM to go and do a Spreecast with Chris Green, founder of ScanPower.The topic of the Spreecast is to teach Chris about Bitcoin. Chris is a very clever guy who has purposely avoided learning what Bitcoin is so that he can sit down knowing next to nothing and have me walk him through it. If you want a full explanation of what Bitcoin is, check out the Spreecast–we’ll also be happy to take questions while we’re live on the Spreecast.
I’ll start answering questions at 3PM EST. Thanks for your interest!
