Kindle Bitcoin Insider

[PSA] Money saved = money earned? Use bitcoin to save money if you shop on amazon.

I was reading a couple threads on this subreddit and some people are taking a hit when buying gift cards with bitcoin where they only get 80% of the value of the bitcoin transferred to the gift card. People also seem to struggle converting bitcoin to cash. Here's a few things with some referral linkssorry to assist people with these issues.
For starters, egifter and gyft are pretty useful. I use them pretty often for things when I am in a rush and can't find any other options to save using bitcoin to buy things. It's also really handy for gifts for birthdays/christmas for those folks that live far away. If you want to throw me a bone for telling you about egifter, shoot me a pm and I can add you as a referral. The referral program isn't sexy, but egifter does give you points for using bitcoin that can add up to savings on future orders.
If you want to convert bitcoin to fiat, I highly recommend getting a bitpay debit card. Bitpay is fast and easy and comes in pretty handy. You could also consider localbitcoins. Using that site you can charge a small fee for the transaction. Just simply look at the current rates in your area and match it. Match the rate based on the amount you're selling. Example, currently preev has the bitcoin price at $2632 usd per 1 btc and the going rate in my area is roughly $2785. That's a 3-4% fee. You can also transact here in cash with no id. I just recommend meeting somewhere safe.
I also recommend keeping an eye on /BitMarket. I stumble across deals there from time to time. That subreddit is a pretty decent place to sell some stuff for bitcoin if your are interested in that sort of thing. There are a couple of places that I've found online that are auction type sites like ebay for bitcoin, but they are pretty shady in general and I'd rather not be the guy that points people to them. I have gotten some great deals on them, but I play it extremely safe. If it seems to good to be true or the seller has no ratings or feedback, I don't touch them. Same goes for the subreddit here, check the users profile and attempt to use escrow when doing any trades there.
Now, my favorite thing to do when not using bitcoin directly on sites like newegg is to use purse.
referral:
nonref:
Purse is a service that offers a 5% discount immediately for shopping on amazon. If you already shop on amazon and aren't using this, you are wasting money.
Purse can save you 10-20% when purchasing if you are patient. Here's how it works. Say you want to buy a new item that cost $100 on amazon. You list the item in a public wishlist, make an offer of say $80 or $85 in bitcoin for the item and you pay purse.io the bitcoin. Purse then acts as an escrow between you and whomever accepts your offer and buys the item.
The item is shipped directly to you and you then notify purse and they release the escrow to the buyer. I usually start out my offers at 20% and if no one bites after 24to 48 hours, I lower it to 15%.
Cool little side hustle here: I have friends and family that I told about this and they don't want the headaches of dealing with bitcoin. So what I do is let them order through me. Say you mom wants that new tablet or whatever. I tell her I can save her 5% and order the item. If I get 15% off I pocket the 10% as profit for the 10 mins of work it took me to do the listing and stuff. It's a decent way to flip btc to usd for fiat and profit.
For example, a recent purchase I did. I ordered the new kindle fire, childproof case, cover, headphones and all for my friend for her daughter. Everything together was like $145. I listed it for $115 (Cause I like round numbers). I put the bid up and it was accepted in under an hour. That usually doesn't happen. But I was able to flip $115 worth of bitcoin out and got back $135 and some stuff from her garden. Not a bad deal for 10 minutes worth of "work"...
What I do is scaled up because I've traded bitcoin since 2012 and I currently have a few mining rigs, so I always have extra bitcoin laying around to do this. But even if it helps someone a few times a month or something it adds up.
Hope this helps, if you have any questions/suggestions let me know.

Thanks to r/Fantasy, my out-of-print series Broken Sky is back from the dead! (Also, book giveaway!)

So here’s the story. Many years ago, back when I was twenty or something, I embarked on my first Epic Fantasy. At the time my publisher was Scholastic, who did books for teens, but I always thought of it as an any-age fantasy. Hell, it was a sight darker than The Belgariad, anyway.
Up until then I had been writing teen drama books for Scholastic because that was what I thought they wanted of me, but then my editor gave me a copy of Northern Lights (The Golden Compass in the US) and said to me ‘That’s the kind of thing you can do with teenage books nowadays.’ So I decided to just write what I wanted to write instead of what I thought I should. I count the Broken Sky series as my first books that were truly mine, and I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for them.
Broken Sky sold far, far better than my previous books (note to self – write from the heart, people notice – end note) and was a moderate hit all over the world. It was translated into somewhere between 15 and 20 languages (I forget exactly) and shifted a quarter million copies in the US alone. For the first time in my life I could buy a beer in the pub without thinking about how much it cost.
Fast forward many years, and many books. Broken Sky has a somewhat disastrous re-release. The ‘anime’ look for the covers that worked the first time around is now dated: kids don’t think its cool and adults think it’s for kids. The books drift quietly out of print. Not cost-effective to keep them in the warehouses.
I’m a bit sad about this, as are a bunch of people who get in touch with me from time to time asking why the only available copies are, like, £1000 on Ebay. Some people who grew up with Ryushi and Kia want to be able to read it to their kids. I pester Scholastic to put them out as ebooks at least, but it’s hard going. Ebooks aimed at kids are not an easy sell, since most kids under 12 don’t have e-readers of their own. Scholastic convert my more popular books to ebook, but not Broken Sky.
I ask them to either republish them or give me the rights back. They give me the rights back. Bluff failed.
So now I have, for the first time, several of my books out of print. Four of them are my early teen drama books (Crashing, Kerosene, Catchman, Endgame) which honestly I’d rather forget about. But Broken Sky… if only for posterity, I want it to exist.
‘I’ll do that self-publishing thing!’ I say to myself. So I get trying to convert them. Turns out it’s quite time consuming as first I need to learn the programs. I only have PDFs of the books as the original manuscripts were written on coal powered Babbage Engines and I’ve lost them anyway. That means that when I do convert them they introduce loads of errors, and worst of all whenever I start working on them I can’t help editing the fricking things to try to improve them. After mucking about for a couple of weeks I am hit with the realisation that this is taking up time I can’t afford with all my myriad deadlines and likely they will only sell a few copies so, y’know, I’m not doing it for the money really. Then my daughter is born and I have no time to do anything for a while.
By this time the whole thing has become a monkey I want to get off my back, but whenever I start working at it I become rapidly dishearted. I want to put out good ebooks with nice covers, and I want them laid out properly and stuff. I just don’t have the time to do it. A few more abortive attempts at interesting publishers follow.
Eventually, I’ve more or less resigned myself to the fact that this will annoy me forevermore but I’ll never do anything about it until the mythical future paradise arrives when I’m loaded and I can swan about writing one book a year while dabbling with whatever little side projects I feel like as and when I fancy.
Enter fantasy.
So about a year ago I’m asked to do an AMA by the kind mods on this here forum. In the process of doing this I’m asked about Broken Sky and I mention how I’m just thinking of getting them out there any way I can. After that chat I get PM’d by the heroic TheDanielColeman, who offered to help me with get them converted off the pdfs and do the editing work for me. Now I’m not a person with a surplus of trust in strangers, so privately I was a little wary at first. What did this person want of me? Why was he offering to help out someone he didn’t know? What was his ulterior motive, god damn it???
I play too many boardgames. Suspicion of betrayal is my default attitude.
Anyways, long story short, TheDanielColeman was an amazing help, super quick, and endlessly patient with my notes. Anyone with any spare gold knocking about, this guy deserves it. (Me, I’ll have your spare bitcoins if you have any lying around, it’s a mug’s game, you know, might as well let me take it off your hands, etc). Between us we knocked three books’ worth of errors into shape.
Once the MSS were done I belatedly realised I actually had to get a cover done also (the Scholastic artwork was under copyright, and I didn’t want that old anime look anyway). A quick skim through the self-published section of the Kindle store revealed a grim landscape of badly photoshopped topless men standing thoughtfully with fire in the background, so I thought fuck that, and harassed my unfortunate brother into designing them for me.
A pleasant side-effect of this: in searching for cover images I discovered the work of a Lithuanian artist called Mikolajus Ciurlionis, whose superb paintings now grace the covers of my resurrected novels.
So! Thanks to the efforts of the fantasy community in general, one selfless Redditor in particular, one cool dead Lithuanian dude, and one awesome bro, the Broken Sky trilogy is back in the world! It’s available on Amazon, iBooks (no direct link: search wooding broken sky), Kobo and Barnes & Noble. There are free samples on all but Amazon, who annoyingly have a minimum price of 99p/99c, until I can get it changed.
Here’s the blurb for the first book, for those who have never heard of it.
**In the world of the Dominions, everyone has a power. Spirit-stones, implanted at birth by the mysterious Deliverers, grant strange abilities. Some can shape metal. Some can see into the past. Some can make people see you as you are not. The stones determine who you are and what your place is in the world.
Ryushi and Kia, twin brother and sister, have grown up in the mountains on their father’s isolated wyvern stud. Ryushi’s stones let him command pure force; one day he will be able to turn a key in a lock as easily as he smashes a wall. Kia manipulates the earth, raising golems from the ground, opening doors where there are no doors. Every day they train in the fighting arts, and learn how to harness the powers they were gifted at birth.
Soon they will find out why.
The arrival of a strange, waifish girl at the stud sets into motion a chain of events that will pull the twins into a world they had never imagined. A world where strange machines, powered by the stones of Pilots, battle alongside airborne wyverns; where stalking horrors step out of mirrors, hunting traitors wherever they hide; where rebels plot against the king in a hidden city.
And there is more. A shadow-world, a heartbeat away from their own. A mirror-land ruled by a despot. Kia and Ryushi will find themselves drawn into a battle for two worlds, and in doing so, they will discover the truth about who they are, what they want to be… and the very nature of the spirit-stones themselves.**
To celebrate, I’m giving away three full sets of the trilogy to the good folks of fantasy (and by giving away, I mean I’ll email you the epubs and the covers: how then you get them onto your devices is a sorcery unknown to me, but I’ve heard it’s possible). Everyone who posts up here will be put in an imaginary hat and I’ll pick three names at random tomorrow and PM them, with the small disclaimer that my wife is two days overdue to give birth and apt to burst at any moment, so if I go suddenly dark it’s because I’ve become a sleep-deprived zombie unable to perform even simple tasks like operating a keyboard. Please be patient, I’ll get the winners their books.
So that’s it! A great big thank-you to all of you in the community and the mods. It really wouldn’t have happened without you.
Chris Wooding
TL;DR Well, you should have.
EDIT: Well, the baby's not here yet and the results of the giveaway are in! Congratulations to Kaer_Dadet, _SolluxCaptor_ and usernamesname! I'll PM you all to get the details to send you the files.
Thanks for all your well wishes and congratulations. Hope you like the books!

Fundamental Things That Will Support Dogecoin

Guys, I know we are all happy and uppity with all of these things going on, but I just want to let you know that this is only the beginning of a long journey to the moon that we're wishing for. Having spent some time and learning about digital currencies in general, I am saying this out of love for what we have here in this sub. New pups, heed this well as you will now be a part of something important. A few months ago, we were considered a joke coin. A joke. Now, I prefer that we are not too serious but we demand to be taken seriously. So if you're craving for what you can do to help even if you're new or just want to kick things up a notch...
Here is a serious list of the things you can do to support the rise of Dogecoin.
1.) If you are mining with a GPU, consider trading your equipment for an ASIC. These things are energy efficient and make you profitable in the long run, if not at least save you in electricity. I initially resisted the idea before, but I was ill-informed. I played into the fear that some unknown kook will make a farm out of these. But any equipment will make farms. CPUs have botnets, so the same phenomenon will happen regardless of mining equipment. What we really like to see though, is that mining would become decentralized. If we attain a large hashrate ACROSS a large network, not limited to multipools, then we can be safe and not worry as much.
For those who don't understand clearly, the hashrate is the strength of the Dogecoin network. The larger it is, the harder it is for us to be attacked by rogue computers causing the whole Dogecoin network to fail. This has happened with obscure coins with very low hashrates, with their networks taken over and rendered their wallets near-useless. Bitcoin has 50 Petahashes, while we are barely 50 Gigahashes, roughly 5 times less than what Litecoin currently has. There are haters. There are entities interested in tearing this whole thing apart. This is the stuff Dogecoin Defense Force is trying to prevent from happening. It doesn't have to go there, but we need to step up.
2.) Buy $5 dollar's worth of Dogecoin if not more and "hold" it - Buy it because it takes it off the exchanges. Multipools dump millions of Dogecoin so they can get their hands on Bitcoin so they can get their hands on fiat. There's a reason they called it an "exchange". They kind of miss the point, so we should act instead. The only exchange that should be happening is one between of money and goods changing hands, regardless of borders and with minimal transaction fees. We've spent money on a lot of dumb things, and those things never even had a chance of increasing in value. Even a dollar will help.
3.) Advance merchant integration / adoption - The skinny is that businesses are scared of Dogecoin not due to the negative press, but among other things. Why take something that's valued differently the next day? Google the Zimbabwe Dollar and imagine being in the shoes of these merchants. How many hours would they need to train some disinterested dude about the complexities of transacting across wallets. In short, it's TOO HARD for them. Not only it's too hard currently, it's not paying the bills. We need to make it effortless for merchants to adopt, and I'm saddened that this aspect is not taken all so seriously.
4.) Vote. Participate.
Think of this sub as a fairground where so many good things are happening. We are a community, no one needs permission to get stuff done; get up, go and run away with the ideas around here. Form groups, talk, and tip, but the best of all, execute. If anything, help a Shibe out, especially if they're new. Speak up, we'd love to help you; your understanding and success is the community's success. I have heard people who have been lifted out of their depression just by joining this sub. It's that spirit that's unique to us that needs to be on every true Shibe. Kindle those sparks; be the Prometheus and share that fire, now matter what the odds.

This will be a contentious idea but I will say it anyway: Price does matter. 1 Doge is 1 Doge, but we can help more people if Dogecoin is worth a little more than what it is now. Imagine tipping 100 Doge at one cent per doge means you gave a real dollar to a cause. See the impact that we can have if money, even if it used to be a joke, is something of worth, though little. Now, some of you will say that a real moon price would make all those "greedy schmucks who join multipools" hoard Doge where it will never see the light of day. This is FUD. That doesn't have to be the unfortunate reality of the world we live in. If you are true to the spirit of charity, love and kindness, and if Dogecoin is a force for good, we'd all want it to be a strong force.
Please do not believe you can slack because the responsibility is diffused among 81000 shibes. Neither am I saying stop the amazing absurdity of the things that we do. That spontaneity draws a lot of us in in the first place. You have no idea how efforts unnoticed, no matter how small, add up and reach a tipping point. Let us also not be complacent and put the blame on our coin's youth. We put a great message out there with the Dogcar, and it's high time that we follow through.
We are one big party, but it takes work from all of us to keep it coming. Keep the passion going, and it'll take work; but I know we will be rewarded.
Thank you for reading this. I know this will get buried considering it's a wall of text, but I'll say what I think needs saying.
tl;dr - If you love Dogecoin, you will read and consider some of things I said above.
To the moon!

Alternative uses for a new Kindle Fire?

Completely out of the blue I got a Kindle Fire for christmas.
As awesome a gift as it is, it's...kinda like being given a car when you can cycle everywhere in your life or pay a tenner for a train trip once a month, so you never really need a car but now have to pay for insurance on one. Awesome present, but kiiiinda useless in your life.
This Kindle is like that for me. I read lots, but I prefer physical books and I'm a student, so typically too poor to afford paying full price for E-books instead of a penny+shipping for a second hand copy. When I get through my physical backlog I'm sure I'll start downloading freebies.
But until then it's just sort of sat on my shelf. It doesn't seem 'useful' in really any other circumstance than the odd free book. I've never been one for the whole candy-crush type gaming, it's too small really to be using in my studies for note-taking and lectures, and more pointedly, I already have a good laptop, so...it's kind of redundant to stop watching movies, reading news, gaming, skyping, studying, music-listening etc on my laptop just to do so on a much less powerful, smaller device.
I've been looking around at other 'what to do with a kindle!' pages and aside from the daft self-plugging "use it like an I-pad!" type 'uses' the few 'its a nightstand/couch/kitchen' tool seem like a brilliant idea....in several years...when I have a living room or multiple floors, right now I'm a student so my entire home consists pretty much of kitchen, computer desk, bed. all within about 15 paces of each other.
So yeah, are there any....idk, 'abnormal' uses I can get out of a Kindle Fire? I don't really even know what kind, something that could supplement computer usage maybe? In the back of my mind I'm trying to think of stuff similar to bitcoin mining. Not literally, but the same kind of 'stuff you can't actually use a normal-use laptop for'
Unfortunately no, donating it to a hospital or charity really isn't an option. I do that sort of thing with old tech I don't use, but this is a brand new present from a parent. I'm fairly sure it would not go down well if she asked how I was getting on with it and my response was "eh, gave it to charity."
