Kashmir Hill of Forbes.com just finished a fascinating experiment in which she tried to live on Bitcoin for a week. As it came on the tail of a friend talking to me about Bitcoin mining, I decided to look into Bitcoin and the fascinating and volatile world of cryptocurrency.
It was with all that in mind that I decided to start this blog, and the premise is very simple. I will take payments in Bitcoin to do various things, like some sort of eldritch horror amalgam of a personal assistant and a trained seal. I won’t do anything illegal (unless it happens to be both a minor offense and particularly hilarious) or X-rated.
Here’ s how it works. You e-mail me what you want me to do and how much you’ll pay (in Bitcoin/BTC only!). I e-mail you back with whether or not I am willing to do it. If I accept, I do it, you pay, and I post about it here on the blog.
There are some things I’m actually qualified to do. I’m a freelance writer and graphic designer for print media. I also dabble in photography, and I’m good at Internet research on both personal and scholarly levels. My hobbies include divination (with tarot and I-Ching) and cooking. In addition, I was formerly a copyeditor and proofreader, and I will fix the crap out of your paper.
The possibilities are really limited only by creativity. Here are a few ideas to get your thoughts moving:
1) Have me mail cookies and a handmade card to you so that your roommate thinks you have a girlfriend.
2) Get that bizarrely specific photograph of feet with chess pieces on the toes situated beside an empty can of Diet Coke you’ve always wanted.
3) Let me teach you how to read tarot so that you have a trick to bust out at lousy parties.
4) Satisfy your weird fantasies by asking me to write you a custom Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Once Upon a Time crossover BDSM mpreg fanfic.
5) Pay me a nominal amount to like your mediocre band’s Facebook page.
6) Demand that I call you and recite the Gettysburg Address.
7) Have me record myself making cat noises for eight minutes and post it here on the blog.
The possibilities are endless!
