Sixty-Seven Cents

In all my years of blasphemous blogging, I’ve never made any money off of my writing “talent” – until recently.

As the figure below illustrates, I received my first bitcoin tip on November 28, 2015 (a day that will live in infamy!). The top snippet shows that someone sent 1.5 millibits of BTC to the bitcoin address in my Electrum wallet that I’ve labeled “Posted On Blog II“. The bottom snippet shows the exact bitcoin address that maps onto the text label – which you can also see in the right hand column of this page below the QR code graphic.

Since the Bitcoin blockchain is publicly visible to ALL people, 24 X 7, forever, I looked up the transaction details on Blockchain.info:

On the tip date, I published a tribute to Andreas Antonopoulos titled “The Bitcoin Ambassador“. Thus, I suspect it was Andreas himself who tipped me from his bitcoin address at 1A41uqAH2FnAE4B2bftVZPCkppztesiaZM. If the address is one of yours, then thank you Andreas. If not, then thanks to whoever did so.

As you might have concluded, I won’t be quitting my day job anytime soon to vigorously pursue a latent career in writing.
