Long polling - BitcoinWiki

PSA: Someone is using a bot to downvote everything in this subreddit. For newcomers, please know that Bitcoin Cash has been under attacked for the last 4 years because Bitcoin Cash, a global peer to peer cash system, is a threat to banks and fiat currencies.

For any newbies coming here wondering why someone is running a downvote bot in this subreddit (among other attacks), I would like to spread awareness about this issue.
There are many signs that BTC has been infiltrated. When you put them all together, it starts to form a clearer picture. Here are some examples.
There is consistent trolls/harassments/smear campaigns against Bitcoin Cash the last 4 years. Who is funding all these propaganda campaigns? Who is funding these efforts to run downvote bots to disrupt this community?
In 2013, Peter Todd was paid off by a government intelligence agent to create RBF, create a propaganda video, and cripple the BTC code.

Blockstream kicking Gavin, the lead Bitcoin developer, out of Bitcoin development, successfully hijacked control over the Bitcoin github.
Mike Hearn and Gavin wanted to prevent Bitcoin from being hijacked, so they created a fork. That fork didn't survived after they were heavily DDOS. Mike Hearn was heavily character assassinated by what I believe to be orchestrated paid campaigns by Blockstream. And of course, now that Mike Hearn is gone, the character assassination campaigns are directed at Bitcoin Cash main supporters like Roger Ver.

I was involved in some BCH projects and there had been multiple DDOS attacks and other stuff, such as flooding my inbox with few hundred thousand emails per day. I'm sure those activities are not for profit, so why are they doing it?
There are actually plenty more nasty unethical things BTC people had done which is not covered in this comment. Bitcoin Cash is an attempt to rescue what the bad actors had hijacked successfully, mainly the peer to peer cash revolution. And it won't be the last time the bad actors will try to find ways to sabotage this project.

Here's my suggestion to counter these attempts at disrupting the Bitcoin Cash community. We keep onboarding more users into the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem. That's what they don't want us to do, and that's exactly what we will do.

Proposal to update the /r/btc participation requirements

Hello all! I wanted to share some ideas with the community in regards to /btc participation requirements. As you all know, we are now a very big subreddit, with 317K+ subscribers and growing rapidly. I'd say we are one of the top subreddits when it comes to Bitcoin related topics and also cryptocurrency in general. As you can see from this chart, we get anywhere from 200 to 600 new subscribers per day (the jump in August was due to the mini-bull run we had).
For a number of years we've kept the threshold for accounts to participate as low as they can be. Essentially anyone with any karma can participate, and accounts just needed to be several hours old before they could participate. However, as we have become bigger and have a lot of users now, this has become problematic.
My proposal to the community here is, since we have grown so much, it's time to evolve a bit and help drive down the signal-to-noise ratio and help reduce all the spam and scams from drive-by accounts whose sole purpose appears to disrupt discussion. To do so, I'd like to add the two following automod scripts:
--- # Age requirement author: account_age: "< 72 hours" action: remove action_reason: Removed, account age less than required. Please try again later. message: | In order to prevent zero hour comment brigading, spam, scams and abuse, brand new accounts must age 3 days before posting or commenting to /btc. This process is automated and after 3 days, your ability to post and comment on /btc will automatically be set to approved. Please try again later. If you get this message again it means your account hasn't aged long enough yet. Thank you. --- # Karma requirement author: comment_karma: "< -10" action: remove action_reason: Removed, user karma less than -10. Please try again later. message: | Hello, your {{kind}} was removed due to your account having negative karma. In order to participate in /btc, users can not have more than -10 karma. Feel free to try posting again when your karma has improved and meets the minimum karma required. Thank you. 
There was some discussion already within some comments a few days ago. If you click on the hyperlinks in that comment, you can see more examples of people complaining about all the mess.
Please also keep in mind, for almost all subreddits that care about their subscribers and have a decent amount of participants, they all have much higher requirements to post there. Some examples:
What do you think? Is this a good idea? I have also created a poll for those that wanted to try to gauge sentiment that way. Ultimately, we still do need the top mod memorydealers to agree to this as he has final say, but I wanted to bring the discussion forward to the community for comments. Thanks.

Gridcoin 5.0.0.0-Mandatory "Fern" Release

https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/5.0.0.0
Finally! After over ten months of development and testing, "Fern" has arrived! This is a whopper. 240 pull requests merged. Essentially a complete rewrite that was started with the scraper (the "neural net" rewrite) in "Denise" has now been completed. Practically the ENTIRE Gridcoin specific codebase resting on top of the vanilla Bitcoin/Peercoin/Blackcoin vanilla PoS code has been rewritten. This removes the team requirement at last (see below), although there are many other important improvements besides that.
Fern was a monumental undertaking. We had to encode all of the old rules active for the v10 block protocol in new code and ensure that the new code was 100% compatible. This had to be done in such a way as to clear out all of the old spaghetti and ring-fence it with tightly controlled class implementations. We then wrote an entirely new, simplified ruleset for research rewards and reengineered contracts (which includes beacon management, polls, and voting) using properly classed code. The fundamentals of Gridcoin with this release are now on a very sound and maintainable footing, and the developers believe the codebase as updated here will serve as the fundamental basis for Gridcoin's future roadmap.
We have been testing this for MONTHS on testnet in various stages. The v10 (legacy) compatibility code has been running on testnet continuously as it was developed to ensure compatibility with existing nodes. During the last few months, we have done two private testnet forks and then the full public testnet testing for v11 code (the new protocol which is what Fern implements). The developers have also been running non-staking "sentinel" nodes on mainnet with this code to verify that the consensus rules are problem-free for the legacy compatibility code on the broader mainnet. We believe this amount of testing is going to result in a smooth rollout.
Given the amount of changes in Fern, I am presenting TWO changelogs below. One is high level, which summarizes the most significant changes in the protocol. The second changelog is the detailed one in the usual format, and gives you an inkling of the size of this release.

Highlights

Protocol

Note that the protocol changes will not become active until we cross the hard-fork transition height to v11, which has been set at 2053000. Given current average block spacing, this should happen around October 4, about one month from now.
Note that to get all of the beacons in the network on the new protocol, we are requiring ALL beacons to be validated. A two week (14 day) grace period is provided by the code, starting at the time of the transition height, for people currently holding a beacon to validate the beacon and prevent it from expiring. That means that EVERY CRUNCHER must advertise and validate their beacon AFTER the v11 transition (around Oct 4th) and BEFORE October 18th (or more precisely, 14 days from the actual date of the v11 transition). If you do not advertise and validate your beacon by this time, your beacon will expire and you will stop earning research rewards until you advertise and validate a new beacon. This process has been made much easier by a brand new beacon "wizard" that helps manage beacon advertisements and renewals. Once a beacon has been validated and is a v11 protocol beacon, the normal 180 day expiration rules apply. Note, however, that the 180 day expiration on research rewards has been removed with the Fern update. This means that while your beacon might expire after 180 days, your earned research rewards will be retained and can be claimed by advertising a beacon with the same CPID and going through the validation process again. In other words, you do not lose any earned research rewards if you do not stake a block within 180 days and keep your beacon up-to-date.
The transition height is also when the team requirement will be relaxed for the network.

GUI

Besides the beacon wizard, there are a number of improvements to the GUI, including new UI transaction types (and icons) for staking the superblock, sidestake sends, beacon advertisement, voting, poll creation, and transactions with a message. The main screen has been revamped with a better summary section, and better status icons. Several changes under the hood have improved GUI performance. And finally, the diagnostics have been revamped.

Blockchain

The wallet sync speed has been DRASTICALLY improved. A decent machine with a good network connection should be able to sync the entire mainnet blockchain in less than 4 hours. A fast machine with a really fast network connection and a good SSD can do it in about 2.5 hours. One of our goals was to reduce or eliminate the reliance on snapshots for mainnet, and I think we have accomplished that goal with the new sync speed. We have also streamlined the in-memory structures for the blockchain which shaves some memory use.
There are so many goodies here it is hard to summarize them all.
I would like to thank all of the contributors to this release, but especially thank @cyrossignol, whose incredible contributions formed the backbone of this release. I would also like to pay special thanks to @barton2526, @caraka, and @Quezacoatl1, who tirelessly helped during the testing and polishing phase on testnet with testing and repeated builds for all architectures.
The developers are proud to present this release to the community and we believe this represents the starting point for a true renaissance for Gridcoin!

Summary Changelog

Accrual

Changed

Most significantly, nodes calculate research rewards directly from the magnitudes in EACH superblock between stakes instead of using a two- or three- point average based on a CPID's current magnitude and the magnitude for the CPID when it last staked. For those long-timers in the community, this has been referred to as "Superblock Windows," and was first done in proof-of-concept form by @denravonska.

Augur V2 is the next big step in Defi

This 6 month old Augur V2 video got me excited. I thought I’d share its value proposition, which I feel is currently being overlooked.
If you’ve been in the space for some time, you know what Augur is: a decentralized prediction market and the biggest (in ETH)/earliest ICO on Ethereum. Prediction markets allow for better forecasting by leveraging the power of incentivized wisdom of the crowd. V2 will soon launch with a revamped UI, cheap 0x orders and stablecoin integration. It’s set to become the most accessible, fair and open betting platform out there.
What you may not realize is its impact in the Defi space. Each market/prediction/question is represented by a token that can be traded in other Defi apps. This gives it incredible flexibility. Consider these possibilities:
This synergetic composability gets incredibly interesting when combined with other Defi legos. How about token sets based on bets between the ratios of active addresses on Ethereum vs Bitcoin? Why not make a Uniswap pair between a Real-T token and a bet against Detroit real-estate to hedge your position and gain transaction fees on the side?
Tokenomics
With growing interest over new Defi tokens, REP will no doubt position itself among the top. It’s one of the few that actually benefits from using a blockchain and has a utility that isn’t just governance related. Staked REP consensus is used to validate markets and collect fees in the process.
We’ve seen most successful Defi tokens pick up steam, especially in the past month, as mirrored by their sharp price increases: BNT +200%, KNC +90%, LEND + 70%, MKR +60%, LRC +140%. Augur V1 markets aren’t being used right now since the long awaited V2 is just around the corner. The repeated additional delays in V2’s launch date have kept its price comparatively low.
With that in mind, if one believes in the team’s ability to deliver and for Defi to continue growing, REP seems to be an extremely strong long term play. Whether you're a token holder or not, you'll likely see its contribution in many spheres of the Defi world. The above examples only scratch the surface of what it enables.

10 Basic Methods to Increase Telegram Channel members

10 Basic Methods to Increase Telegram Channel members
As you know, these days social networks are also a tool for people to entertain. As you know, wherever there are more audiences, it will be the best place to advertise and market products and services. Therefore, the telegram messenger application that has involved many people these days is the best place for advertising, business, and entertainment.
Increasing the number of channel members and the telegram group is the main goal of any admin. One of the concerns of people who buy telegram members and increase followers is to upgrade their business and introduce their services. Many people think that whatever the members of their telegram channel are more, it is better and can make more money. So they are buying telegram members.
Of course, sometimes, this case is for channels that get paid for advertising, for example. But that's not always the case! There are channels with very few members that are not famous at all, and they continue to work in off light. These channels make a lot more money than channels with several dozen thousand members! No important number of members. But it’s important that your channel members really follow your channel's topic.
: In this article, I also intend to answer the following questions
How to increase followers on telegram
How to increase telegram members
How to add unlimited members in telegram channel
Add fake member to telegram channel online?
Promote telegram channel free
How to add members in telegram channel
Why should our channel have true telegram members?
The meaning of real telegram members is that there are people on our channel who really love our channel content and always follow us. It's not a good idea to force someone to follow us! This case is true everywhere. For example, in a marketing emails, sending mail to people who do not know us is wrong and ineffective.
Marketing and advertising are always important to people who are our target. It's the same in Telegram. That is, we can not forcefully invite people who do not like our content to our channel.This period is over to add members through the Fick advertisements on our channel. Today, by using based methods, we need to make people follow our channels with their own personal interests. So it will be much easier to market our products and services on them.
Using non-standard methods, such as increasing telegram Channel Followers, is a false, costly and useless work. In general, anything like this has no effect on our success! Some sites that use different ways to increase their website's visitors and some owners of Instagram pages looking for Fick followers. These methods have never worked well, and in many cases, it not only did not have any profits but also accompanied by disadvantages.


10 Basic Methods to Increase Telegram Channel members

1. Specify your goal and create your channel
The first step in building a telegram channel is to know what your goal of creating a channel is. You should specify your goal of setting up a telegram channel. Specify the subject you are about to create content on your channel.
It is very important that you do not change the subject after you have identified the purpose and theme of your channel. For example, if your channel's topic is health, you should not post content on humorous or political topics on your channel! This will increase the dissatisfaction of your channel members and will leave your channel over time.
Unfortunately, many friends in hopes that by changing their channel's subject, they can attract more members, they do not succeed and they will lose their telegram channel followers. Therefore, set the goal of making the channel, and do not change the link and subject of the channel after a while. Try to publish content related to the channel’s name and history to prevent members from falling. For example, if in a channel with a name and description of a scientific channel a comic or political message might be sent, some members may not like this and leave the channel .
2. Complete your Telegram Channel profile creatively
It's very important to use a suitable logo and complete the description of your channel. Therefore, select the logo image and description for your channel. Once you have identified your communication profile, try to describe the benefits to the users in the description section or in your Channel Bio. It does not matter at all that you are the first in your field of ​​work, but it's important that you differ from your competitors and what benefits you consider for your audiences.
For example, the sentence "Every day, you can finish your day with the motivated sentences of our channel ", it's much better and more attractive than this sentence "motivational sentences in our channel".
3. Create a high quality and attractive content
Try to produce and publish content that useful for your channel users. Creating the right content is the first step in attracting members into the group. This can greatly influence the rise of the Telegram members. You should not change the subject of your productive content. Try to choose the best possible theme right from the beginning. Usually, entertainment channels produce content on any topic, and it does not matter what topics to post. But the specialized channels are not so! If your channel is specific to a particular field, you should try to create useful and functional content for your users.
You should have variety in content creation. Try to use popular formats such as written photos or images of gif or small video streams that spread like a virus between people. Infographics can be strangely handled by telegrams. Making infographics is a difficult and hard work, but try to make and share some special infographics related to your channel theme. At the end of every post (text or image) that you post on the channel, put the channel id or URL (link) on it, so if channel posts are forwarded by members again, the channel link is also sent.
Web - helper special offer: Can telegram be used as a marketing tool?
In social networks, especially in telegram, the users are a bit boring. The volume of text should be limited as people are not quite interested in reading or knowing much through text. Try not to share long posts and put as much photos as you can with your posts. Most of the time you can explain your goal by writing in a photo.
Regarding the subject of your channel, I suggest using voice files. Voice files are very popular and your members can easily and at any time listen to your voicemail. As you know, the screen of mobile phones is small, which causes many friends not to pleasure to read your text posts. For this reason, try to share voice files for the people.
4. Specialize your channel posts
The most important thing to do is to specialize your channel posts. By doing this, you can greatly increase your channel members. Be sure if your posts are special, prominent and attractive, they will be shared to other people or other groups by your users .
To do this, you should use the logo or tag of your channel on your short images or videos. This can be done easily with the pic art app. You can also put your channel as a link or u/ChannelName under each post. By doing this, when your posts are forwarded by other users to other users, they can also be added to your channel or group via this link.
5. Ask your audiences help in producing content
Ask your users to produce content for you and put their content with their full specifications in your channel. Of course, according to the theme of your channel, you should do this. For example, bring a specific topic up and ask your user's opinion about it. Ask them to share it in the form of an audio file, it is more attractive.
You can also ask them to ask you their questions. For example, you act in the field of online sales and marketing techniques, so, your audience questions will be raised in this field. You can create attractive content by answering their questions and put it on your channel.
You can also do this by raising a poll or contest. For example, raising this topic "10 ways to increase Internet products sales" and ask your users to send you 10 ways to sell Internet products.
Do not forget that your channel is specialized and there are enthusiasts in your field of ​​activity. So they can help you in this field. After writing their own techniques, write an outline of the best techniques and share it as a post on your channel.
6 . Join the groups and super-groups in the same field
Try to find the groups and super groups that are same of your field and act on them. You can find similar groups at this site https://www.channel-member.com/channellist.aspx and Act or advertise on it, it was possible for you to share your favorite posts on it. If the group managers do not allow you to do this, try to make a friendly relationship with them. For example, share some of their posts on your channel and instead ask them to allow you to act on their groups.
You can also participate in the super-groups discussions that related to your field and answer other users' questions. Try to prove yourself at your work. Try to introduce yourself and your channel subtlety by the posts that you share into groups. For example, if you answered the question, at the end you can point that you have a channel. Be sure, by doing this, you can refer many people to your channel.
7. Link your telegram channel to your other social networks
Publishing your channel invitation link on another channel can certainly be one of the best ways to increase the membership of the telegram. Put your telegram channel address on each social network that you are active. For example, it's a good idea to put your telegram channel address in your Instagram Bio. Or, for example, in your Aparat channel, in addition to the website address, put your telegram channel address in the social media section. In general, try to set up your telegram channel address on any site you have profiles.
8. Include your channel in the Telegram channel directories
There are a number of sites that can be used as a directory of telegram channels to increase the members of telegram channels. These sites have subject categories that insert telegram channels on different topics on their site. Some of them may also receive some money for registering your channel address, which usually will receive a small amount of money. For example, 10 thousand tomans and forever!
These sites can be found through Google searches, some of them are as follows:
Telegram group link
https://www.channel-member.com/channellist.aspx

9. Creating a Competition and awarding prizes

https://preview.redd.it/b7mhsxgv0lt51.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7dbf2d320809fa2707367c58b9b90cffee9a9fdd
One of the best ways to increase the members of telegram Channel is to run a competition. You must have seen the contests in the telegram so far. Sometime ago , I saw a $ 100 contest for Best Bitcoin price , In this contest, anyone could announce his prediction of rising or decreasing Bitcoin prices in the last 15 days. The prediction of the highest hits and the closest price in the next 15 days is announced as a winner.
It does not matter what your channel is about. Suppose you are the manager of guitar instruction channel. Just ask your channel users to play a piece and send it to you. Each piece that earns the most likes is the winner.
The important thing is to have a special prize so that many users are encouraged to participate in the competition. If you present services or products, you can give the winner one of your products or a discount code to buy products.
10. Invite your site visitors to your telegram channel
There are many ways to get your site visitors to your telegram channel. One of these ways is to invite your site users to see the post that is only shared on your telegram channel. In general, anything that does not exist on your site and it is only exist on your telegram channel, the user will be forced to see that item in your telegram channel. You can also invite users of your site to your telegram channel via e-mail.
For example, send an email to them, in which you can point out that tonight at 10 o'clock, we will publish the article in our channel, or our new product will be presented with special discounts for telegram members. To avoid losing this opportunity, join our telegram channel now.
To allow visitors who visiting your site to join your telegram channel, you can make special suggestions for them. For example, before a visitor leaves your site, you can make a pop-up suggestion to him.
You can also invite your site visitors and members to your telegram channel by all posts of your site. For example, you can design a banner like the one below and put all your posts in the ad section below.

How can we keep our channel telegram members?
One of the most important ways to increase the channel’s members is to keep them on the channel. That is, you should be able to create a gravity channel that if a new member is entered into the channel, stay tuned to the channel. The items I mentioned here were about increasing the members of telegram channel. But keeping the followers is more important than increasing them on the channel. In many cases, keeping members of the channel is more difficult and harder than increasing them .The tips below will help you keeping the majority of your buy telegram channel members .

1. Do not prefer quantity to quality!
The amount of posts that you share on your channel on the day is not important at all! The quality of the content that you share is important. Do not try to be loyal to your channel members by posting irrelevant and unimportant posts on your channel. By doing this, just hit them from your channel. Try to keep publishing channel posts up to date.
2. Share your channel posts on a specific time
Depending on your audience's awareness, try sharing your posts at certain times. Never exaggerated in sharing your posts. Try to make your audience stand out. For example, always send a post to them at 10:00 am. Usually, posts that are sent between 2 am and 8 am do not have a good return.
3. Interact with your channel audiences
Stay in touch with your channel members. Check out their tastes. For example, asking them to raise a polls and ask them about the subjects that they are interested in. This will make their presence on your channel longer. If your work field allows you to ask them to send their posts or photos to be published on your channel.
4. Do not specify Your Channel for Advertising!
Do not exaggerated in sharing advertising posts. Because this will reduce the number of your channel members. The people who exist on your channel are due to the useful and appropriate content that you share with them. They do not like to turn your channel into a place for advertising. If you intend to exchange with other channels or put ads on your channel, you can assign a specific time period to this work.
5. Justify your channel managers
If you are using other managers to create content or manage your channel more easily, you must make sure they are completely justified. For example, tell them all posts should have your own channel tags and proprietary. Or ask them not to use much of the copying content of other channels. Check the time of posting with them.
Conclusion and last speech
My last suggestion is that you should not use any fake telegram members in any way. it should be noted that increasing the number of telegram members in unusual ways, such as robots and software that is found on the Internet in many ways these days, will not only be ineffective. In most cases, it will waste your time and money. If you are really specialist in your work, try to use the methods outlined in this article to increase your telegram channel's members. The techniques presented in this article for increasing the members of the telegram channel are all perfectly standard, effective and practical, I hope you've used enough of this article.

An Overview of Arizona Primary Races - Part 4: Legislative Districts 11-20

Welcome back to my omnibus compendium of Arizona’s upcoming primary races in the style of my 2018 summaries. The primary is set to take place August 4th – early voting ballots should have been mailed out on or around July 8th.
Arizona’s a really interesting state (I may be a hair biased), since it not only is home to 2-3 swing House seats and a high-profile Senate race, but also tenuous majorities in both state houses that could – theoretically – neuter Ducey’s trifecta this fall. And counties have their races this year as well, so I’ve highlighted some of the fireworks ongoing in Maricopa.
And this is before factoring in the fact that our state is a COVID-19 hotspot, with an unpopular Republican Governor doing almost nothing to stop it.
If you’re interested about which district you live in, check https://azredistricting.org/districtlocato. If you want to get involved with your local Democratic party, find your legislative district on the previous link (NOT CD), and then search for your LD’s name at this link. Feel free to attend meetings, they’re a great way to get involved with candidates and like-minded individuals.
If you wish to donate to a “clean elections” candidate (mentioned in the post as “clean”), you will have to live in that candidate’s legislative district to give qualifying $5 contributions (check here if anyone needs it in your area), but they are allowed to accept a limited amount of “seed money” from people outside of the district. The three CorpComm candidates can take $5’s statewide.
If you do not want to vote at the polls, you will need to request an early ballot using the website of your county’s recorder prior to July 4th. Example links for Maricopa, Pima, and Pinal. Others available if needed.
Race ratings for listed primaries will be listed as Safe/Likely/Leans/Tilt/Tossup (alternatively Solid instead of Safe if my mind blanks) and are not indicative of my own preference for that seat. I’ll denote my personal primary preferences at the end of this series, as well as the best Republican ticket for the Dems if someone here really really wants to pull a GOP ballot in the primary. I do not advise it, but since I can't stop ya, you'll get my best suggestions.
Write-in candidates have yet to file, which could give us an outside chance at getting some Libertarians on the ballot (the Greens have lost their ballot access).

Alright, let’s get cracking, y’all. I’m going to try to save time and characters on the safer seats when I can, although of course I’ll expound on any fun stuff that comes up.
Legislative District 11 (McSally+9.93, Trump+13.9, Douglas+16.7, Romney+19.3)
The first district in this writeup installment is LD11, a district very close geographically and politically to LD8. Unlike LD8, however, LD11 has slowly been trending towards Democrats, instead of away from them. Encompassing the southern half of Pinal (including a large chunk of Casa Grande) and bits of Pima, LD11 could swing under the right conditions, but is probably a safe seat this year. That’s disappointing, since the incumbents in the district are pretty darn nasty.
Incumbent Senator Venden “Vince” Leach ($98K COH), a sort-of Great Value Mitch McConnell, loves to spend his time filing SB1487 complaints against various liberal towns in Arizona – basically, suing cities over their attempts to go above and beyond state law when it comes to certain issues. Leach leads the SB1487 leaderboard with 4 SB1487 suits, most recently targeting Pima County over COVID-19 safety regulations that were slightly stricter than state law. Joining the suit were his House counterparts, COVID-19 conspiracy-monger Bret Roberts ($22.4K COH) and actual goddamn Oathkeeper and Charlottesville truther Mark Finchem ($27K COH).
Facing Finchem and Roberts is the Democratic House nominee for LD11, Dr. Felipe Perez ($24.2K COH). Perez has made few waves online and I haven’t seen him even in the same tier of candidates as Girard in LD8, so he’s probably not going to supercharge this district into Dem. territory. But given the spike in public approval for the healthcare industry due to COVID, he may get lucky. On the Senate side, Leach’s opponent will be one of retired public administrator Linda Patterson ($4.7K COH, Clean) and Marine drill instructor Joanna Mendoza ($14.5K COH). Anything could happen between now and August, but Mendoza currently has a significant organizational, political (endorsements) and fiscal advantage over Patterson, and will probably be the nominee come August.
A well-run race could feasibly knock out Finchem or Roberts, but I’ve yet to see that happen. Still, it’s far out enough that I’m not going to slam the door shut on a Perez win just yet.

Legislative District 12 (McSally+17.19, Trump+24.5, Douglas+17.84, Romney+33.35)
Really not going to focus much on this district to save space, as it’s a snoozefest. House Majority Leader Warren Petersen ($84.8K COH) is running for Senate to replace outgoing Sen. Eddie Farnsworth. Petersen faces Haitian DREAMer. former teacher, and 2018 LD-12 House nominee Lynsey Robinson ($1.4K COH). Robinson’s a great person, but lost her House race against Petersen by the 1v1 equivalent of 20 points, and shows no sign of knocking him off this time around.
Petersen’s runningmates, Rep. Travis Grantham ($39K COH) and Queen Creek Councilman Jake Hoffman ($107.7K COH) are unopposed in both the primary and general.
hunter15991 Rating: Primaries all unopposed, Safe Petersen general, GOP House unopposed
Legislative District 13 (McSally+21.59, Trump+26.96, Douglas+26.22, Romney+31.62)
Moving on to another Safe GOP district with not much activity – LD13! Stretching from the whiter Yuma neighborhoods all the way to Phoenix exurbs in Maricopa County (and the mirror image of LD4 to its south), LD13 routinely sends Republican slates to the legislature. This year, incumbents Sen. Sine Kerr ($58.5K COH), Rep. Tim Dunn ($60.4K COH), and Rep. Joanne Osborne ($15K COH) are all fighting to hold their seats.
Kerr is unopposed in both the primary and general, while Dunn and Osborne are in the opposite situation – they’ve got two elections between now and inauguration day. Democratic paralegal Mariana Sandoval ($3.1K COH, Clean) will put up little resistance for the GOP in the general, but the entrance of former Senator and former Speaker Pro Tem Steve Montenegro ($27.8K COH) could really shake up the LD13 House primary. Montenegro, a Salvadoran-American legislator who resigned his Senate seat to run for the CD-8 special election primary (he placed 3rd, ultimately losing to then-Sen. Debbie Lesko), was a rising star in the AZ-GOP before his resignation and contemporaneous sexting scandal. This Senate run could be a good way for him to get his foot back in the door, and since his election would single-handedly double the amount of non-white Republicans in the legislator, I would figure that some Arizona Republicans are excited that Montenegro is throwing his hat back into the ring.
I haven’t seen much about this primary online, but there’s vague general on GOP pages dinging Montenegro for his ties to a 2016 National Popular Vote bill in the legislature, which is a big purity sticking point for the further-right members of the Arizona GOP. That being said, the chatter is vague at best, and Montenegro has enough conservative cred (with endorsements from people like Joe Arpaio and former Rep. Trent Franks back during his special election run) that he will primarily face issues over the sexting scandal.
I’ll give Osborne and Dunn a slight advantage over their incumbency, financial well-being, and the issues in Montenegro’s closet, but this is a really tight race and Montenegro could very well end up back in the legislature this time next year.
hunter15991 Rating: Dem. unopposed, Kerr unopposed, Tilt Osborne, Tilt Dunn, All Safe GOP general
Legislative District 14 (McSally+23.83, Trump+26.24, Douglas+22.88, Romney+26.84)
This is yet another district where Democrats stand no real chance in competing this year, and haven’t in quite some time. Situated in SE Arizona, LD14 once incorporated some ancestrally Democratic mining towns in Greenlee and Graham County, but they’ve grown red enough in the past couple of decades that this district is now held by three GOP legislators.
Former House Speaker and current Sen. David Gowan ($60.9K COH) (who was previously in the news for trying to use a state vehicle to assist in a failed Congressional campaign) faces realtor Bob Karp ($12.9K COH, Clean) in the general, while House incumbents Rep. Gail “Tax porn to build the wall” Griffin ($50.5K COH) and Rep. Becky Nutt ($47.4K COH) face retired union activist Ronnie Maestas-Condos ($686 COH, Clean) and teacher Kim Beach-Moschetti ($13K COH, Clean). All 3 races will probably be easy GOP wins.

Legislative District 15 (McSally+8.01, Trump+16.61, Douglas+11.06, Romney+25.44)
LD15, up in Northern Scottsdale and Phoenix, is one of the final frontiers of suburban expansion for Arizona Democrats, along with the Mormon suburbs of the far East Valley (LD12, 16, and 25). A very wealthy area, LD15 has routinely been a GOP stronghold – but their hold on the area has been dissipating steadily rapidly in the Trump era. In 2018, two Dem. House candidates both managed to outperform the “single-shot” performance of a 2016 candidate, and Kristin Dybvig-Pawelko ($48.6K COH, hereafter “KDP”) improved on the district’s 2016 State Senate margin by several points despite facing a significantly more difficult opponent than the 2016 Democrat.
KDP is running again this year, as a single-shot candidate for the State House. Her opponents have yet to be set in stone, as both GOP Representatives are vacating their seats to run for higher office, and there are three GOP candidates in the August primary vying for two nominations. Veteran Steve Kaiser ($13.6K COH) and State House policy adviser Justin Wilmeth ($16K COH, $5.2K self-funded) are the nominal establishment picks for both seats, and have been endorsed by a whole host of GOP legislators. However, they face stiff competition from businessman Jarret Hamstreet ($23.2K COH, $10K self-funded), who boasts endorsements from GOP power-players like the local Chamber of Commerce and the NRA, as well as tacit support from the incumbent Senator in the district Heather Carter ($101.2K COH) (somewhat of an Arizona Lisa Murkowski). I’ve been able to find very little chatter on the race, but with Hamstreet’s significant fundraising advantage I definitely think he secures one of the two nominations this November. While the district is still quite red, KDP is no spring chicken, and facing Kasier, Hamstreet, or Wilmeth will be a lot easier than her run against Carter in 2018.
If I’m going to be honest, it is the GOP Senate primary that is almost as important as the House general election. Heather Carter has gotten on the bad side of quite a few conservative legislators during her tenure in the Senate, holding up GOP budgets with her partner in crime Paul Boyer in 2019 over a stalled child sexual assault statute of limitations bill and this year over an amendment to give additional funding to firefighters for PPE and to students for tuition support.
That amendment failed 15-15 thanks to one Kate Brophy McGee - more on her later.
Carter’s actual attempts at moderation (as opposed to McGee’s performative bullshit) has inspired current State Rep. Nancy Barto ($9.9K COH) to challenge her for the Senate. Barto has the support of both Kaiser and Wilmeth (as well as most of the GOP establishment) but has been routinely lagging behind Carter in fundraising (both in terms of current COH and overall amount raised). Carter has been bringing in more “moderate” and pro-public education GOP volunteers from all over Phoenix and is sure to put up a fight in August. As it stands, I think she narrowly pulls it off. There is no Democratic Senate opponent in the general, so winning the primary automatically wins the seat.
If you’ve got GOP friends in AZ who just can’t bare phonebanking for Democratic candidates but complain about the state of the Republican party, send them her way.
Carter has beliefs. Barto has none.
Slate totals:
  • CarteHamstreet: $124.4K
  • KDP: $48.6K
  • Barto coalition (KaiseWilmeth/Barto): $40.5K

Legislative District 16 (McSally+17.58, Trump+28.37, Douglas+17, Romney+28.11)
LD16, out on the border between Pinal and Maricopa County, is probably the reddest district in Arizona that could still be relatively considered “suburban”. The only Democratic candidate is write-in House candidate Rev. Helen Hunter ($783 COH), and while her background is stellar (incl. past work with the NAACP, Mesa PD’s Use of Force Committee, and other community involvement), there isn’t even a guarantee she’ll make it onto the November ballot.
Meanwhile, Rep. Kelly Townsend ($15.5K COH) has tired of the State House (just like she tired of her furry fursona, and is running unopposed for State Senate.
The real drama, therefore, is in the GOP State House primary to win Townsend’s old seat. Incumbent Rep. John Fillmore ($12.9K COH) is running for another term, and seems set to win one of the two nominations. Townsend’s former seat is contested by respiratory therapist Liza Godzich ($14.6K COH) (who wins the “most moderate” title by default by virtue of taking COVID kinda seriously), CorpComm policy advisor Jacqueline Parker ($16.4K COH), and school choice activist/general lunatic Forest Moriarty ($17.7K COH).
Moriarty has the valuable Townsend endorsement, but has not been able to consolidate support easily elsewhere – Parker’s CorpComm ties let her bring quite a few assets of her own to bear, as well as endorsements from Congressman Andy Biggs and the NRA.
This election will be a test of Townsend’s downballot coattails, as well as those of the school choice movement in AZ parlaying any support they may have into legislative results. Success for Moriarty here could go as far as inspiring Townsend to run for Governor. We’ll see if it comes to that.
hunter15991 Rating: No Dem. filed (pending write-in), Townsend unopposed, Lean Fillmore, Tossup ParkeMoriarty, GOP unopposed in general
Legislative District 17 (Sinema+3.53, Trump+4.09, Douglas+3.12, Romney+14.16)
One of the reasons I significantly delayed writing these writeups was because I was dreading writing about LD17. Not to doxx myself completely, but in 2018 I had far too many negative encounters with the incumbent Democratic Representative, Jennifer Pawlik ($101.3K COH) that made me routinely question my support of her. I’m still trying to heal the wounds in multiple relationships I have with friends that were caused by Pawlik’s actions.
I deeply regret ever lifting a finger to help her when I had opportunities in other districts. But because her actions never got physical, because the stakes are so high this year, and because too much unsubstantiated negative talk about a candidate can get a post deleted - I don’t wish to publicly expound on her actions (nor put words in the mouth of other people who interacted with her). Feel free to PM if interested.
Pawlik as a candidate is a grab-bag. On paper she’d be a strong option for a suburban district – a teacher and education funding activist with a prior win during the 2018 wave. However, behind the scenes she is quite a poor campaigner in ways that directly impact Democratic candidates’ odds and presences in the district, including her own - which makes me more apprehensive of her odds of re-election than her fellow Jennifer in HD18 (Rep. Jennifer Jermaine), who’s quite similar to Pawlik on the whole.
Pawlik’s Senate runningmate this year is local businessman and first-generation American Ajlan “AJ” Kurdoglu ($51.5K COH). AJ’s a good guy and more serious of a campaigner than Pawlik, and is on well enough terms with her that no inter-candidate drama will probably happen this fall (which would be a welcome change for the district). He’s been slightly outpacing her in fundraising and seems to be hitting the ground running.
The Republican incumbents in this district are Sen. JD Mesnard ($102.6K COH), who moonlights as legal counsel for an organization categorized as a hate group by the SPLC, and Jeff Wenninger ($117.8K COH), a backbench Bitcoin bro. Wenninger and Mesnard have both been in their seats for a while, and this cycle were backing Chandler Vice Mayor (and JD Mesnard’s mom) Nora Ellen for the other State House seat – Ellen lost to Pawlik in 2018.
But in a stroke of luck for Pawlik, Ellen failed to qualify for the ballot this year. However, in a similar stroke of luck for the GOP Liz Harris ($27.3K COH, $21.3K self-funded) - a local realtor (like Ellen) - did qualify. I’ve yet to discern just how close she is with Mesnard and Wenninger, and how much cash she is willing to dump into this race, but in terms of how random non-GOP establishment candidates the LD17 Republicans could have done far worse than Harris.
All the pieces in this district would point to a shift even further left than it was in 2018, and had I not known what I know about Pawlik this would be a Tilt D House/Tossup Senate. But I don’t know if she’s changed since 2018 - and if she hasn’t, there is no guarantee that she won’t snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Legislative District 18 (Sinema+18.58, Clinton+10.39, Garcia+12.5, Romney+1.93)
Like LD10 in the previous part of my writeup, the situation in LD18 is another blast of the proverbial Gjallarhorn for the AZ-GOP’s suburban chances. Once a very competitive district (fully red as recently as 2016), LD18 is now held by 3 Democrats – Sen. Sean Bowie ($106.3K COH), Rep. Jennifer Jermaine ($65.7K COH), and Rep. Mitzi Epstein ($60.8K COH). Bowie and Epstein have carved rather moderate paths in their respective houses having been elected back when this district was more competitive, while Jermaine’s tacked a bit more to the left, and has been a prominent voice for increasing education funding (prior to running for the State House she was a public school funding activist and IIRC Moms Demand Action member) and for missing indigenous women (Jermaine is part indigenous herself).
The GOP’s troubles in this district started around the filing deadline, when one of their candidates, Alyssa Shearer, withdrew from the primary. Super anti-abortion nut Don Hawker ($619 COH) filed as a write-in candidate to replace her, but it’s uncertain if he’ll qualify for the general election. Their other House candidate, Bob Robson ($11K COH) is on paper a solid candidate (being a former Speaker Pro Tem of the state house), but lost by the equivalent of 6% to Epstein in 2016 and by 19% when he ran for Kyrene Justice of the Peace (a district that roughly matches the boundaries of LD18. Robson’s an old warhorse) - going 0 for 2 since 2014. It’s a sign of the times that he and discount Scott Roeder are the two potential House candidates for the GOP in this district.
In the Senate, the GOP doesn’t fare much better. Real estate agent Suzanne Sharer ($4.2K COH) is trying to run a semblance of a decent race against Sen. Bowie, but keeps using her campaign Twitter (@blondeandsmart – I promise you that’s a real handle) to retweet QAnon shit. Sharer is going nowhere in November. That’s if she makes it to November, given her past retweets advocating for people to drink bleach to cure COVID.

Legislative District 19 (Sinema+44.97, Clinton+40.25, Garcia+32.38, Obama+34.3)
LD19 is a safe Democratic district in the West Valley, where all the drama is happening in the primary. Rep. Lorenzo Sierra ($9.3K COH) and Rep. Diego Espinoza ($25.2K COH) are both running for re-election, defending their seats against challenger Leezah Sun ($5.1K COH), a local activist. Sierra and Espinoza haven’t been particularly conservative in their voting records in the legislator, but have taken some flack from the more progressive wing of the party lately for outside corporate expenditures in this primary. I’m honestly unsure why these PACs are weighing in given that Sun isn’t running all that good of a campaign, but I guess better spend it here than in tighter primaries. Assistant State Minority Leader Lupe Contreras ($7.2K COH) is unopposed in his primary.
In the general, there’s one GOP candidate for both House and Senate, but both are write-ins and could possibly not qualify for the ballot. For now, Democrats are unopposed in this district in the general.

Legislative District 20 (Sinema+3.7, Trump+8.01, Douglas+0.04, Romney+12.87)
LD20 is another suburban district where Democrats could see sizable gains this fall. Won by Sinema and Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes, and almost snagged by David Garcia during the 2014 Superintendent race, LD20 has been on the Arizona Democratic Party’s mind for a few cycles now. Their candidates this year are strong – 2018 Senate nominee Doug Ervin ($94.6K COH) has filed for a rematch after losing by 4 in 2018 (where an independent ex-GOP candidate took 7% - Ervin claims Quelland actually hurt him more than district Republicans), and retired teacher Judy Schweibert ($158.2K COH) is running for House. Both are running bang-up campaigns and seem set to make November a problem for local Republicans, and Ervin has eschewed the public funding he took last time in order to be able to fundraise better for the slugfest ahead.
The local GOP, however, isn’t taking this lying down. Representatives Shawnna Bolick ($161.8K COH) - who was almost bumped off the ballot for using a PO Box as her filing address - and Anthony Kern ($73.4K COH) - an ex-cop on the Brady “untrustworthy cop” list - have been building their warchests in preparation for this cycle after narrowly hanging on in 2018 (despite both Democrats in that race running with public funding). While Bolick has typically stayed out of especially heinous controversy on social media (despite once posting that all masks come from Wuhan and are thus contaminated with COVID), Kern’s time on the force seems to have stuck with him, and his Twitter feed is full of a lot of pro-cop posts and whatnot. With Schweibert running as a single-shot candidate this year I can see Kern’s tendency of accidentally discharging his foot into his mouth finally coming back to bite him.
On the Senate side the past election results are slightly more promising than the House, but the opponent is tougher as well. Sen. Paul Boyer ($50.5K COH) is probably the closest there is to a living John McCain in the Arizona Legislature (not to deify him too much – he’s still conservative), having blocked two GOP budgets in the past two years along with Sen. Heather Carter (see LD15). In 2019 this was over a child sexual assault reform bill (extending the statute of limitations), and in 2020 this was over a lack of funding to firefighters and university students in the emergency “skinny” COVID budget the legislature passed in the spring. His attempts at moderation are visible outside of that: Boyer’s abysmal Q2 fundraising – per his own words – came from not fundraising at all during the 5 month long legislative session despite campaign finance rules only banning lobbyist contributions during the session (and I guess that’s commendable self-policing), and on his website he stops just short of calling for abortion to be banned, which makes him Margaret fucking Sanger among the current AZ-GOP.
That’s not to say that people shouldn’t support Ervin with all it takes – hell, if anything he’ll need more help to oust Boyer. Ultimately I think Ervin holds a narrow lead in this race with the absence of Quelland and with far better fundraising than what the LD20 slate had last year, but the election is still quite far away. If I had to pick one Democrat to win in this district, it’d be Schweibert.

Keep that positivity flowing! Also, if anyone added a note in the "feedback" section, instead of the "notes" with the transaction, unfortunately I was not getting those messages.

In other news...gourmets are....still coming. Unfortunately, that's all I have for you guys at the moment, as some personal issues are delaying the process just a bit. A couple of weeks ago, I promised I would have a concrete date for when these gourmet liquid cultures will roll out, and I'm sorry I was not able to see that promise through. My gourmet grower had some unexpected life stuffs thrown his way, and needs to take care of some things for his family before resuming the process.

I'm trying out something new each week to work on my own work/life balance struggles, and want to share some of my creations with you. Unfortunately, I am not such a creative person, and it shows. Throw it away, laugh, do what you wish with them, but know that when I'm making them, I'm in a meditative mindset, thinking about how all of you have blessed me and allowed me to continue living my dream. I hope this gives some of you a smile or mush needed pick-me-up on a rough day, and I encourage you to pay it forward, and make someone else's day too. We're all in this together :)

Use code NEEDMORE2 or NEEDMORE3 for 3, etc. Currently this is setup to add a maximum of 5 exotics....if you need more, please message me and I'll create a unique coupon code to enter for your order :)
****Penis Envy #6 (PE6)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.

All syringes are 12cc/mL and come capped with a sterile tip cap, and also include an 18ga BD sterile needle and alcohol pads. Syringes are made in a lab grade environment and the utmost care and attention is the highest priority to be sure they are sterile. Anything exposed to an open air environment is subject to contamination, but I take every precaution possible to minimize this risk. I cannot "guarantee" they are 100% sterile, but I can guarantee that if you have an issue, I will make it right. I really do love to help, and if something happens, I'd like to know about it so I can fix the issue instead of you getting frustrated or giving up!
To ensure equal quantity of spores in each syringe, and for adequate suspension of the spores in the solution, I use a magnetic stir plate. Very often, this does such a good job of breaking up clumps of spores that it will appear to be sparse. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE! There are still a TON of spores in each syringe, even if you can't see them individually (though most of my syringes appear to have a very good amount of visible spores...even with my horrible eyesight!). You can compare and contrast to see the blackish/purple tint to ensure every syringe is packed with spores. If a spore clump forms during transportation, simply give it a good flick with your finger and vigorously shake to break it up or free it from clinging to the wall of the syringe before examining.
Syringes ship in individual bags clearly labeled as to specific variety and born on date, bubble wrapped and shipped through USPS tracked shipping (discreet) within 24 hours of payment. I send tracking info soon after payment and give updates along the (super quick) way.
Any messages referring to spores being used for anything other than microscopy use will be ignored. Don't do it.
THANK YOU ALL so much again for your continued support!! I appreciate it more than you know! MUSH LOVE
P.S. In no way am I trying to be an impostor. I AM NOT WILLY MYCO. I chose this u/ a while back as sort of a play on words and tribute to a legend most of us recognize, long before I became a spore vendor. I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pass off as him, though I do strive for his level of excellence and dedication to the craft! I appreciate all of the kind words, though, from people saying they learned from "my" videos. I wish I could pass on those notes to RR himself.
Cheers and MUSH LOVE!

Water Currency

Hello!
I am the creator of WaterCurrency and I've been inspired to create something new in the Cryptocurrency world :D
I am developing a Cryptocurrency backed by Water!
This post is a small poll to actually know what you guys think, since you'd be the major users of this project :)
(To be honest it's entirely dedicated to you guys!)
WaterCurrency is a coin pegged to the price of 1 Liter of Water and will be adjusted with Ask-Bid spread once it takes off :)

The reason:

I wanted to create a Currency which can be considered stable enough to withstand many events:
Gold is the commodity #1 in our world, followed by Silver.
When bad things happen both of these metals gain value because people don't trust standard FIAT money anymore.
Nowadays a new opponent has arisen: Bitcoin.
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency not owned by anyone: a Peer-to-Peer money exchange network without a middleman.
Bitcoin is a service commodity whose intrinsic value depends on its ability to create value by performing some complex hashing procedures; many people however believe that Bitcoin doesn't really have any intrinsic value since it's not backed by Gold or Silver and it's made out of "Thin Air".
Certainly during a crisis period Bitcoin will have a rough time to compete against an actual asset like Gold since no one would actually mine Bitcoin's anymore and accept them as payment.
The scenario I imagine is pretty much apocalyptic: famine, diseases and Gov instability.

The proposed solution:

Water is the basis of all life, its intrinsic value persists even during the previously mentioned apocalyptic scenario because any living being on this planet will need water to survive.
Water has a stable price in developed countries and can actually be stored for a very long time since Water doesn't go bad (Source: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/does-water-expire)
Water can be stored in Glass containers and last a lot, according to Truls Krogh, director of the Department of Water Hygiene at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health even more than your entire lifetime (Source: https://sciencenorway.no/forskningno-norway-watecan-water-spoil/1442835)
A Currency backed by Water means that you can "virtualise" many liters of Water and exchange them for Goods or services or even other Cryptocurrencies if you wish but knowing that the price of water is stable and you can redeem water during Crisis.

Details of the Project:

WaterCurrency starts with 100 000 Coins availability, each one of them is the equivalent of 1 Liter of Water
WaterCurrency has a 3 Decimal precision so you can buy
  1. Liter
  2. Deciliter
  3. Centiliter
  4. Milliliter
The initial supply of 100 000 Coins is calculated with the average household water consumption of 273 Liters per day for a single person.

Fees:

WaterCurrency has very little fees: 0.01 per transaction (proposed, need to evaluate better).

What can I do with it:

You can buy anything you want! WaterCurrency should soon be able to purchase physical and digitals goods by one of our partners.
You can even exchange it for other Currencies such as Bitcoin, Eth, Monero or others!

Conclusion:

Having a currency backed by Water is a guarantee. Water won't go away or go bad if stored properly and can last many years to come, can help you and your family during a financial crisis and can actually help the planet.
The more Water you earn the more you can help one of our partner to plant Trees and actually make this World a bit better :)
And also... It's a Water Currency! How cool is that?! :)

WHAT I NEED:

I'd like to ask you guys to tell me if you are actually interested in this project and if I should carry on and actually make it public.
The Currency is already there and should work correctly once released in production but I need your thoughts, ideas, doubts and whatever you want to tell me!
I'd like to leave you my landing page website and ask you to SIGNUP if you are interested with your email or complete the following Poll if you don't wish to disclose your email.
Thank you in advance to everyone.

MW Wyco Wednesday Inventory Update! 1st 10 Orders get a Small Hand Painted Canvas, Orders Ending in 7, 1, or 5 on 7/15 get Bonus Syringe! Comment Contest to Win Milly's Mega Box! Restocked GT, B+, PE6, PEU, AA+, KSSS, JMF. NEW: Tidalwave, Dancing Tiger, Na Muang, Aztec God, Mex. Jalisco

www.millywyco.com
Milly's Mega Box Comment Contest= 15 free syringes, a book, and other swag! 3 Mega Boxes available. Deets below
My dearest friends, mush lovers and fellow mycologists, welcome back to another edition of Wyco Wednesday! I took some time off last week for my anniversary, got caught up on some mush needed organization, and got ahead on restocking some of the more popular varieties, while adding 5 new ones to the library! Thank you so much to everyone who wished us a happy anniversary and were patient during an off week! And to everyone who added a note on your last order about something positive in your life...it truly warmed my heart. I know it's easy to focus on all the surprises 2020 has gifted us so far, but it really put a smile on my face to see the highlights of what good has happened in everyone's life recently. Keep that positivity flowing! Also, if anyone added a note in the "feedback" section, instead of the "notes" with the transaction, unfortunately I was not getting those messages. If you were expecting a freebie with your happy note but were left out due to the feedback vs. note issue, please let me know and I'll have something on the way to you STAT!
In other news...gourmets are....still coming. Unfortunately, that's all I have for you guys at the moment, as some personal issues are delaying the process just a bit. A couple of weeks ago, I promised I would have a concrete date for when these gourmet liquid cultures will roll out, and I'm sorry I was not able to see that promise through. My gourmet grower had some unexpected life stuffs thrown his way, and needs to take care of some things for his family before resuming the process. I, as well as most of you in the community, recognize the importance of mental health and work/life balance as a priority over any work or hobby related activities. We appreciate your patience, and will have an update as soon as humanly possible! No matter how many curve balls 2020 tries to throw, we will come out of this better and stronger than ever! GOOD WILL PREVAIL.
To ensure quality specimens and packaging, and due to the onslaught of orders on Wednesday's, all orders placed on Wednesday's will be shipped on Thursday and Friday of that week. You will receive an email notification with a tracking link when your order ships. I appreciate your patience so hard!
The first 10 orders placed after this post (Order #12673-12682) will receive a FREE (very small) mushroom hand painted canvas! As with any of the artsy fartsy crafty thingies, DO NOT have high hopes for these items. I'm trying out something new each week to work on my own work/life balance struggles, and want to share some of my creations with you. Unfortunately, I am not such a creative person, and it shows. Throw it away, laugh, do what you wish with them, but know that when I'm making them, I'm in a meditative mindset, thinking about how all of you have blessed me and allowed me to continue living my dream. I hope this gives some of you a smile or mush needed pick-me-up on a rough day, and I encourage you to pay it forward, and make someone else's day too. We're all in this together :)
P.S. This week's craft was chosen based on a poll I posted on the MW sub. Next week will be the runner up: resin crafts! Check back on the sub soon for another poll, or comment with what you'd like to see coming up!
ALSO...in addition to the first 10 promo, and going with tradition the past couple months, any order number ending in 7, 1, or 5 on 7/15 will also get a FREE bonus unlisted syringe not available in the shop with their order!
FINALLY...and this is the big one... one lucky person from each sub this is posted on (Sporeswap, Sporetraders, and MillyWyco) will receive Milly's Mega Box for FREE! I just made this up...don't try to go looking for it to buy. What is Milly's Mega Box you ask? This variety pack includes 10 cubensis syringes, 5 exotic syringes, a book from Ram Dass or Terence McKenna (God I love these guys!), and some really cool stickers! That's 15 syringes, a book, and rad stickers for FREE, given away on each sub :) All you have to do is comment something good that has come of 2020 (I know you have something), and I'll have one lucky comment chosen at random for the winner on each sub. Extra points for comedy...we could all use it...but still just chosen at random. Mush Love <3
This week, I have restocked a few favorites, including Albino A+, Golden Mammoth, Golden Teacher, B+, PE6, PEU, Blue Meanie, Z-Strain, Koh Samui Super Strain, Costa Rican, Mazatapec, PES Amazon, Jedi Mind Fuck, McKennaii, Huautla, Thai Lipa Yai and a few others!
New additions this week include Tidalwave, Dancing Tiger, Na Muang, Aztec God, and Mexicana Jalisco!
Thank you so much to everyone who has subscribed to a subscription box! Each and every month, these boxes will get better and better :) Newsletters will go out on the first of each month, regardless of when your plan is set to renew. In these newsletters will also be the winner of the random equipment raffle for MASTER PLAN members! This could be a sterilization wand, dehydrator, magnetic stir plate, or other super duper helpful tools in the hobby. Last month, 3 lucky Master Box subscribers received a pressure cooker, UV-C light sterilization wand, and a dehydrator!

On the other hand, if times are tough for you right now, let's talk about it!

An Intense Pursuit of a Wife, Wealth & Wisdom Rewarded with Charley Donaldson

An Intense Pursuit of a Wife, Wealth & Wisdom Rewarded with Charley Donaldson

An Intense Pursuit of a Wife, Wealth & Wisdom Rewarded with Charley Donaldson
Charley Donaldson is my guest. He’s a long-time friend and serial entrepreneur who has founded or co-founded five companies over the last six years. Today, he spends most of his time at the helm of two early-stage technology startups: CaringBand and DonationScout.
Charley describes himself as a fearless, yet paranoid entrepreneur. He says that he’s abandoned the easier road to career & financial success in search of his true calling.
I’ve known Charlie since we graduated from Cy-Falls High School together in 1998—Charley was our class’ quarterback. After high school, he poll vaulted at LSU before transferring to Baylor. One of the things that drives Charley is ensuring he didn’t peak in high school (no problem to this point).
In this episode, we recall our time at Cy-Falls. I ask him about his rivalry with Langham Creek star quarterback Joseph Smith. And why Charley ultimately chose track & field over football.
Charley’s now a husband, father of three—they live in The Woodlands, TX. We discuss the journey of his startup, CaringBand—from idea to market. Charley says he and his wife created the business after his mother-in-law’s successful battle with breast cancer in 2016.

I need help please.

I'm not really a survivor. I haven't earned that title yet but before I explain this post involves
-Self harm -Sexual abuse (obviously) -Physical abuse -Emotional and Physiological pain, manipulation. -Dark web use/bitcoin yada yada -Underage porn/nudes etc.
If YOU or anyone else is sensitive to these things PLEASE click off and read something else.
I consider myself to be sexually abused, but not in the ways you might think. So of all places, I've come to the fire of the internet, reddit.
Okay, so I'm going to give relatively the shortest summary of my 3 years of going through this CURRENTLY as I can.
I am on another community app called Amino - Communties and chats. Where people can go into live chatrooms, create posts, do forums, polls etc.
It seems like a dream for any young teen like me who's been bullied most of her life and has no friends. It became my escape, but now, it seems more like a prison I can never get out of.
At the start I met this guy called darklord, (his username) I have his real name, his face, his address and phone number, but I will not be exposing him, because I still have respect for him, but he doesn't have a slither of it for me.
I met him in private messages after someone introduced me to him. And he tried to get me into a contract where I would be considered a "dog" and I won't have no rights as a person and I would be seen literal trash made to do whatever he said. I saw that in the contract, despite him trying to sugarcoat it. I declined it originally. I wanted nothing to do with this person.
Then later on down the line he got his other male friends to gang up on me, and threaten me with my IP address, and convinced me to believe that I was at a real threat, I was freshly 15, and had no knowledge about IP addresses, or anything of the sort, I was told I had to be in a contract otherwise they would leak all my personal information and one of the males threatening me lived in the same country and was going to hurt me.
I did as he said and signed the contract, and he made me do things I didn't want to do, and made me believe I didn't have a choice, SO I sent him nude images, keep in mind that this person is an adult, and knows what hes doing, he was passed the age of 18 at the time, but he never told me anything significant about him, at the time, so I didn't know his age.
I had no idea that he had saved the images at all. And later on down the line I ended breaking the contract because he would degrade me in public, along with several other members in the community, the community had over 2 million people and the most relevant people there would constantly ruin me, saving images of my face without my knowledge and degrading it behind my back and making others hate me.
Throughout this time I started to notice it wasnt just me in these harmful manipulative contracts. They're several young girls in these contracts. Some even younger than me. Doing the exact same things. And my self worth started to plummet, I was taken out of school during this time because my bullies got physical. Way too physical, and my mum was frightened for my health and safety. So with nothing to distract me from the abuse I was getting online, and it being the only place were I could talk to others, the saying pops in my head;
"Any attention is good attention"
In my case, any person who paid interest in me, was a good thing, because all my life I've never had freinds, and it made me a massive people pleaser and very vunderable.
So throughout that time, I kept trying to please those people who would laugh at me, tease me, and meeting people who had already had a tarnished view of me from other people's words. This really started messing with my self esteem, I didn't notice it at first, because of my bullying, I already had a bad self esteem.
Slowly, I started to lose my passions, everything that made me unique. Like art, food became tasteless, I joined to a new all girls grammar school after seven months of dealing with emotional abuse, school was pushed aside, I started to skip school, I developed a harsh flaring temper that could trigger any second even now towards my loved ones.
Girls at school started to hate me because I wouldn't work. I'd never want to wake up in the morning, I would stall for aslong as I possibly could, and constantly be late. The teachers and students made it a kinda reputation for me and I became the "bad egg" of the students. But they didnt understand, no one did. I started to skip school, my anxiety became worse, way worse, I'd sit down in classes and have break downs if work needed to be asked of me, cause I knew I haven't done it, that app became my life. All day at school I'd think about amino, constantly. You wouldn't catch me paying attention in lessons, all I did was sing, and write song lyrics. It used to make the teachers really mad, and I could understand that.
With no one understanding me, I kept to myself, with the app, like a drug.
I started to isolate myself, from my parents, everyone, I wouldn't tell anyone anything, and I still don't.
I spent most of my time in the behavioural support room, because I'd have anxiety break downs, and my feelings were constantly a rollercoaster. This time early this year was nearing to GCSE's and I didnt know what actually happened to me was abuse, so I chalked my sadness up to insecurities, and lack of motivation because my grades dropped so badly from being out of school, I'd missed a crucial whole year of content.
I kept trying to slow down time to figure out the real problem, but I couldn't, I was walking around trapped inside a dead body. I didn't feel alive. I put a mask to all the students that I didn't care. And it ultimately hurt me more. I couldn't slow down my GCSE's I couldn't start again, that ruined me for a long while.
On the app, I tried to stop darklord from hurting someone else who I thought had my back, but, darklord found out it was me that warned him. And, he exposed my nude pictures to everyone, My face was reduced to nothing from that day, everyone had it.
I feel violated, disgusting, and not human, I feel horrible, and the worst human alive, I've never known people to be so cruel, this cruel before.
If I I didn't feel dead before, I definitely felt dead now. The person I tried to protect laughed in my face, and strung me along for a while, and developed my bad temper, and took credit for it like it was a good thing, he was a narcissist and a deceitful liar.
I went off the app for a while, then created a youtube account. In the youtube account I felt ready enough to break my silence. In the video, I talked about my experience on the app, and told my story, and warned people about doing and falling for what I did.
One night, the video got over 200+ views. But not by random people, they were people from darklord's group, he had a massive group of people that had influence around the entire amino. Everyone knew them, so when they found it, they showed it in a screening room full of people, and ridiculed it for all to see, showing my face, making fun of me, and laughing at what happened to me like a funny joke.
That night I received so many hate comments, death threats, and other mean things, that ultimately made me fall into going back onto the app.
When I went back on it, I was ridiculed and looked down on as a literal dog, everyone hated me, people WHO I didn't even know treated me like absolute shit. I dont feel human anymore.
And now I found out that they
-Self underage nudes through bitcoin -Steal bitcoin accounts (dont know if that's considered Identity theft) -Gets others, minors to slit their wrists through threats -Have caused suicides. -And are possibly doing worse to others than me.
It kills me everyday knowing that I've gone through this and can never speak out to anyone because I feel so ashamed. I'm afraid, because I want to be a famous singer when I'm older, and I feel like I've ruined everything, and everything's my fault, and I was meant to be hated since I was born. My face aren't in the nudes, but that doesnt matter, I feel violated, and exposed and disgusting.
My soul and heart are in those pictures
And I can never get them back,
They're still doing this disgusting acts and getting away with it, even having all their information, I'm not in their country, so I cant do anything, plus I sont want my family knowing about this because I feel like a disgrace.
Please help me.
Thanks for reading.

Idea | Tip Nano to creators

Hey guys, my name is Tolik and I'm new to Nano.
I would like to tell you a bit about myself, and then about some ideas that I would like to share with you :)
I'm a content creator form Israel, and I have about 65k subscribers over my 3 channels. I'm also the first Israeli partnered on Twitch and been doing that for 8 years now.
Had a lot of fun with it for the first few years, playing my favorite games and earning good money, and eventually burning out hating the game that got me all my following. Our (Israeli) community exploded on youtube, but to make the most of it you need to make mindless trendy content, playing trendy and pretty childish games. I did that for a while, but it was too hard for my mind and I ended up burning out hard stepping away for a long while.
Back in 2013 I first stumbled upon the world of crypto and realized the potential of the blockchain and the implementation of that technology in our world. Not enough to buy enough to get rich, but I never even considered that it could get to the volumes it got to now. In 2017 when it exploded, I realized I had some leftover coins from 2013-14 and cashed out a few thousand dollars, with the pain it could have been millions if I was a little more aware. Oh Well.
A few years ago, I got into the world of self-development and got a new perspective on life. Doing only what I love and grooming a small but good community on youtube, not caring about trends, views, and money in my pocket.
A few days ago, a colleague of mine started to promote some unknown coin to his child viewers, basically, the premise is a coin that you could mine on your phone. Immediately I had some red flags popping off my mind, especially because he promoted some shady CSGO gambling sites that I didn't even want to look into. He of course had his promotion code for registering to the gambling site, and using the mentioned crypto (downloading the app).
If you can mine it on your phone, what would stop you using an expensive setup and just dominate the market? The fact that he advertised it as a get rich scheme, and the fact that it's a referral pyramid network, does not seem safe.
After looking into it I did not see any promise, especially after I found so many altcoins with big communities that his crypto didn't have, information that did not add up, and a bunch of weird stuff going on.
Because I started researching the crypto world (after so many years not being aware of what happened to it), youtube started suggesting me videos about it, one of them was u/SonderDev 's nanoPaint (Sorry I made SpongeBobs eye red) and started doing some research on nano and the technology. For 3 days I devoured all the info I can, reading most of the posts here on reddit, and joining on Discord and TG. I again felt that butterfly feeling in my gut, the one I felt so many years ago when I found out about bitcoin (and some other rare occasions). So much potential, and I kind of feel I am already late to the party, and yet, my mind can't stop thinking about what is possible.
Now to the good stuff! Donations(tips) to streamers and content creators were always a huge part of our revenue. But we had a lot of problems with it - High fees, making small donations pretty much impossible, and the fear of someone charging you back and having you pay the fees for every donation that got charged back. I had someone give me about $2k for the span of two months with small donations, ended up charging all that money back, and having me pay $10 for each of his donations, even if they were under that amount. PayPal is pretty crazy.
Also, If you consider something like Patreon (a monthly donation for a project or a creator you like for benefits) they also charge extra for their fee, and people can still charge you back, even though they will handle it, you still give them the benefits. Twitch takes a huge cut for subscribers (user pays $4.99 and I get as little as $1.70) and youtube are getting about 30% for their cut.
See where I'm going with this? As proof of concept, a simple donation website/app could be made. You send the creator any amount of nano, it pops up on the screen for everyone to see. People would love the idea to impact the stream with as little money the creator allows. That would start up a conversation, people would start seeing the technology in action, how fast and feeless everything is going.
Not to mention an integrated service could be made that is similar to delegate.it (allows users to do tasks for nano/fiat) in this instance, the tasks could be - follow the creator on Twitter, Instagram, like his posts and whatever else he decides, and it could be cheap, because people would be doing it to pop up on stream and help the creator, not for the actual fiat amount of the nano given. killing 3 birds with one stone. Promoting nano, allowing everybody a voice to a degree they choose, and promoting himself to his viewers.
If this works, we could either go to one of the 2 biggest platforms (StreamLabs and StreamElements (who are Israeli and I know the 2 founders personally)) and they would integrate it to their already build system, or develop something to solely promote nano. We could reach out to smaller streamers that have small dedicated communities, not many donations and revenue coming in and allow them to use our system to promote their content and interact with their viewers.
A few more ideas I have in mind for a project like that:
For the donations (tips)
• Having different donation alerts for different QR codes that you scan. Similarly to what NanoPaint accomplishes, we could have a different QR code to scan for an alert that the user chooses to show up.
• Coloring the Camera frame - similarly to NanoPaint, drawing pixels on the frame of the camera of the streamer, changing it in real-time for nano.
• Having text to speech for the alert
• Have your donation impact the streamer in AR (putting something on his face or head).
Crowd Funding
• Donation goal that will make a purchase only if it gets there - setting up an X day goal to buy a new GPU for example, and having people contribute to it, and if it's reached, it automatically makes the order from amazon or wherever (having the data safe with our service), and if it's not - fully refunding the users. It could be a daily goal for pizza or whatever they choose. It will allow integration with businesses that would work with us.
• Stream goals - if we get to X Nano this stream, 24 hour stream tomorrow! If we won't, get your nano back! Would encourage people to participate even if they are not sure the goal will be met, have the assurance that the full amount would be refunded if it did not get there.
• Challenges - starting a bounty challenge, for example, have an Ace in CSGO (kill all 5 enemies) and get X amount of nano. If you didn't, money goes back. the crowd could vote on it having more interaction and validating if the challenge is complete.
Voting
• Have people engage with polls in real-time with nano, could scan their option to vote, and even get refunded if their option did not win, encouraging them to vote for their favorite option, even if it seems unlikely to win.
User Battles
• Having people start a challenge of a game, in an app or on the web, or perhaps even something random like gambling, and having it appear on stream for everybody to witness. Maybe even challenging the streamer for a nano incentive or someone else who watches.
Chat
• Having an on-screen chat that changes the colors and design of the people who donated with nano, and linked their account. more incentive to donate.
Stream Sponsors
• Having a rotating banner on-screen at all times, allowing users to pay nano to show their banner. As an auction or a price set from the creator.
Most of these ideas occurred to me as I was writing this post, and I'm sure we could think of better ones with some effort. Some of them are already implemented on the websites that were mention above, however, having the power and speed of the nano is a game-changer IMHO.
So why am I writing this post? First, just to share with you and get to know you better, maybe spark an idea or a motivation for anyone to do something good for nano.
Second, money is tight now, moved back to my parents due to the pandemic, hard to find a decent job as we have more than %20 of the people in Israel looking for a job and as I mentioned before the content I make is not very profitable. I can't afford to invest money in this idea, and I lack the skills to do it myself. So maybe if it's good someone else could.
If, however, someone would be inclined to help make this a reality, I would appreciate any comments, suggestions, investment of time, or money in testing this out. I have a dedicated community with thousands of people that will be aware of nano if we'll do it, years of experience in this field, and not to mention that I'm in good relations with most of the other content creators and platforms here in Israel, and some international.

Feel free to DM me at any time :)
Nice to meet you, and thank you for reading.
