Welcome to the Econoalchemist blog!
This blog is focused on bringing you articles about interacting with Bitcoin. The emphasis is on self custody, censorship resistance, mining at home, CoinJoins, and privacy. Overreaching government regulations coupled with invasive chain-analysis have threatened the permission-less state of Bitcoin as well as the rights & privacy of those who use it. I believe that well informed people make good decisions and I aim to share my knowledge, techniques, & perspectives on interacting with Bitcoin in a way that helps maintain it's permissionless properties. I hope that you find some information here thought provoking and that it may prevent you from losing full, unrestricted control over your bitcoin. I am not an expert, but I am an open book.
My content always has been and always will be free. I don’t support advertisers, pay walls, or subscriptions on this site. It pisses me off when an advertisement interrupts or distracts me from the information I’m trying to absorb, and I want to treat my readers how I want to be treated; uninterrupted so I can concentrate. I am not paid for my opinions. If you feel so inclined, visit the Donation page and leave me a tip. It is greatly appreciated and helps me prioritize these efforts.
Full disclosure: I am a contributor with Bitcoin Magazine, which my time is compensated for. I am also an affiliate with Upstream Data, which my affiliation is retained. I also contribute to the Braiins Blog, which my time is compensated for.
In this blog, you will find articles and guides on how to use various Bitcoin wallets, privacy enhancing techniques, methods of self custody, my perspective on industry developments, mining related content and more.
You will not find trading advice, technical charts, or discussions of price action here. I focus on communicating information that can help you secure Bitcoin as an unstoppable medium of exchange and how to use it in a privacy preserving way.
