So, you’ve probably noticed the tiny ad between the menu and (this) article. The ad is powered by a new platform I’m trying. It’s called Adex. Unlike existing advertising platforms, this runs entirely on the Ethereum blockchain. It pays out in Dai, a decentralized stablecoin pegged to the dollar. I.e. 1 Dai equals 1 Dollar. Meaning, I still get the value I would if it were on traditional platforms.
I’m learning how to write fictional books. Although I have a Mac now with iBooks Author at my disposal, I still prefer using the git-based approach by using Markdown to write the content and have it built that way thanks to Gitbook. No Mac required. But Gitbook recently changed their focus more to documentation then books and has deprecated all tools that supported exporting to ePub and other formats.
