The following articles were all written out of personal interest and should not constitute my endorsement of their services. The articles for Compass Mining were primarily published on their platform because the topics are of interest to me, but generally of less interest to my readers.
The opinions expressed were my own not those of the publications.

$0 for Coin Metrics (Aug 23, 2022)
$200 for Compass Mining (Feb 25, 2022)

My cumulative revenue from writing represents significantly less than 1% of my net worth, and the financial incentives have not meaningfully impacted my bias.
This publication has never had any advertisers or accepted payment from anyone.
The all-time gross revenue of this publication is $0 — it has never been monetized.
I have never been paid to promote any NFTs or cryptoassets.
I have on occasion offered lifetime access to my writing on this platform in exchange for proof of charitable donations. Nine people took me up on this offer at the time, although I made it clear that there would likely be zero true perks.
I have applied (unsuccessfully for 1 Ethereum Foundation academic grant).
