I take pride in maintaining my independence. My voice cannot be bought. If you find my content helpful, sats are appreciated.

Do not hesitate to reach out through my contact info above. Keybase and Telegram are preferred.

If you are looking for a more focused one on one - through phone or video - I am happy to do that as well.

Liability Disclosure

My content provides education as to general privacy and security practices when using Bitcoin. Should you choose to apply the practices described in linked content with bitcoin or any other digital asset you own now or may purchase in the future, you do so at your own risk and I shall in no event be liable for any financial loss suffered. Nothing shall be construed as providing consulting, financial advice or general advice as to securing any digital asset of value.

Rabbit Hole Recap is currently sponsored by Unchained Capital, HodlHodl, Braiins, Upstream Data, and Blockstream. Potential sponsors are screened heavily and they understand our opinions are not for sale. We hold our sponsors to a high standard and are often critical of them. I hope to move to a listener funded ad-free model as soon as possible. Search Rabbit Hole Recap in your favorite podcast app and click subscribe!

Citadel Dispatch is a free and open project that is 100% audience funded. It has never and will never have ads or sponsors. All sats donated are held in cold storage to help fund the project long term. Search Citadel Dispatch in your favorite podcast app and click subscribe!

Advisor Disclosure

I advise many bitcoin companies and founders in the space. Currently three have given me small equity positions in return - BottlePay, Hoseki, Hexa Wallet, Pleblab, and SwanBitcoin. There is no promise of paid promotion or endorsement in those agreements. I will use my position as an advisor to help make the above products the best they can be but it should not be considered an endorsement.


If this section disappears then something is wrong that I cannot disclose.
