Donations

Are you enjoying my photography? Would you like to see more?

I have come to a point where an upgrade of most of my equipment is in dire need, but due to the last two years restrictions and lack of concerts and other events rendering me unable to work the funds are depleted. This is your chance to help out, all donations small and large are most welcome and every little bit helps.

The one part of the equipment that is really outdated is the actual camera and the one needed is far from cheap, the retail price is almost 80,000 Swedish kronor (approximately 8,000 euro).

If you’re in Sweden you can donate using Swish (QR code below), everyone else are welcome to use PayPal info@metalphoto.se or send crypto to:

Please comment with the amount you contributed and your e-mail (visible only to me) and I’ll send you a nice little thank you gift once the minimum needed has been reached. Thank you so much for your help!

No more excuses!

A lot of people are feeling poor these days, poor as in not having money, and time and time again I have suggested they should start doing crypto to earn a little extra. The common view on crypto is that it is all fakes scams, which is not true. Sure, there are a lot of crooks out there trying to scam you out of your money, you just have to choose carefully after doing some research into the various programs. The most used arguement for not engaging in crypto is that there is no way to get your money back into the real world which is just baloney and I have just proven this.

Free of charge you can obtain a no fees MasterCard from Wirex, all you need is to have €10 in your account with them. Your can use the card to withdraw from any ATM and you can use it to make purchases both online and with local merchants.

When I got my card in the mail I promptly activated it and made a small purchase at the local convenience store just to verify that it actually works, so I bought a candy bar paying for it with Bitcoin (BTC).

There are a few perks with the Wirex account and their MasterCard:

You get a 2% kickback on all purchases into your account.

There are no exchange fee when using your card.

You can stake both crypto and fiat currencies, on crypto you get a 10% annual interest and on fiat (Euro and USD) you get 16%.

Go get your Wirex account right now

The Wirex website front page can be found here but please use the link above to sign up.

Elon Musk is a hypocrite

The last couple of days the crypto market took a nose dive, especially Bitcoin lost, and it’s all because of that so called business man that goes by the name Elon Musk. Earlier this year he invested a shitload of money in Bitcoin and also announced that his Tesla cars would purchasable using this crypto.

Suddenly this week he announced that this wouldn’t happen and that it would be because of fossil fuels being used for mining and transactions. It’s not like the Bitcoins are dug up from the ground, the mining is digital and is run by electricity. The same electricity people driving his Teslas use to charge the batteries. Will they also begin vetting people buying those cars to make certain the only use “green” electricity? Does he understand that all banking systems are run on the very same electricity?

As a business man Musk should have done his research already before purchasing Bitcoin instead of rushing ahead creating a surge. To be honest I’m convinced he purposely have done this to get a nice little tax write-off without considering all the small investors he’s screwing over when destabilizing the market. It must be nice to have the means to do this, but most us don’t and are losing money because of that crook.

Looking at the very graph Mr Musk himself have published on Twitter you can clearly see that there is a massive rise in power consumption beginning at the same time as he himself bought all those BTC’s creating a buzz luring a lot of people to begin mining and trading. In fact, the root cause for this increase is none other than Mr Musk.

Now he’s pushing Dogecoin instead. Honestly, doesn’t those mining rigs run on the same electricity? Or do they siphon the juice out of thin air? Give it a month or two and he’ll most likely do the same thing all over.

Musk should be concerned over the impact his Spacex operations have on the environment rather than crypto mining. Those rockets sent up surely aren’t giving 100% clean exhaust fumes. Where’s the concern over the impact the mining for metals for his cars has? Or the strip mining for lithium for the batteries? Or the impact the cars batteries will have once they’re unusable in the future?

Elon Musk is a hypocrite.

Elon Musk as the crook he really is…

Cinematic Currency

There are a couple of movies with the name Tron, but as far as I know the crypto currency with the same name has nothing or little to do with the movie. The crypto Tron (TRX) though has proven to one of the more stable currencies and now that Bitcoin (BTC) has become unusable for small investors it is also far more interesting. In addition, where the transfer fees on BTC are beyond rude TRX has very modest (if any) fees.

Recently I signed up for and invested in a high yield investment program utilizing Tron, Trx Forever, and it has proven to work beautifully. I invested 10 TRX to begin with, just feel the program, and in 1 week I could withdraw my principal without a hitch (the withdrawal was carried out instantly). So I reinvested those 10 TRX back into the program and lo and behold, another week later I had a profit of 20 TRX which I withdrew.

Trx Forever

At this point I reinvested another 10 TRX and kept my principal making me breaking even, from now on it will be just profit as I will keep taking out more than I put in. In another week I’ll be withdrawing 30 TRX and put 10 TRX back in giving me a working investment earning me dough of 40 TRX. I’ll keep doing this for a while until I have some major funds so I can put a little into their second plan which pays 15% daily instead of 12%. I may very well raise the investment amount in the lesser plan as well once I’m seeing some real profit to speed things up a bit.

Minimum investment on the lesser plan is 1 TRX which means that basically anyone can get going without it costing an arm and a leg. The greater plan has a minimum investment of 1001 TRX and when I’m in there I will have two investments working simultaneously earning me more TRX. The 12-15% daily are supposedly for life, but programs like these tend to disappear sooner or later although I’m keeping my fingers crossed it won’t, so it should be during the lifespan of the site.

If you don’t have any TRX you most likely have another crypto and can easily swap some of that in your wallet to get what you need. Myself I’m using FaucetPay to hold my TRX (and other currencies).

Remember to never invest money you can’t afford to lose!

Bite Me!

Betfury looked like a nice setup, a chance to earn some satoshis without too much effort. Right!

They have a box option to claim free satoshis every 20 minutes and until yesterday the amount available to claim was 10 satoshi. They also have boxes available to invest and earn from, among others one that appears to be available for free members to invest in where you can earn 7% in 7 days or 10% in 30 days from 7,500 satoshi.

So I went about claiming to get those 7,500 without making any deposit, that’s 750 claims. Then came the day when I had the funds gathered in my account and now came the first cold shower. To purchase a box you first have to stake 80,000 satoshi in the games at the site!

I’m not a gambling man, so I figured that I’d withdraw the funds as they have a minimum withdrawal of 5,000 satoshi just to find out they have a withdrawal fee of 7,500 satoshi which I think is an obscene amount to charge for withdrawing. However I thought to myself that I’ll keep claiming and by the time I had made another 250 claims they suddenly changed the claim amount to 5 satoshi, they cut it in half.

By now I am rather fed up with this site and go to withdraw, with all the effort put in I do want something in return, just to learn that I have to have the minimum amount to withdraw plus the withdrawal fee in my account. That’s 12,500 satoshis that has to be there which means another 500 claims after they’ve cut the claim amount in half!

At this point I would like to say “blow me”, but they have already screwed me sideways so instead it will be:

BITE ME!!!
