Q: WTF is Cryptolopolis?
A: This website is dedicated to cryptocurrency and blockchain enthusiasts, newbies, and the merely curious. Ideally, it will become a community of interest around all the fascinating things the cryptocurrency and blockchain are bringing and will bring us.
Q: How did you come up with the name Cryptolopolis?
A: I was searching for available domain names and it just kind of popped into my head. Given the aspiration of creating an eventual online community, I thought it was appropriate (and the .com tld was available)
Q: What’s up with the P&L charts?
A: I’m documenting my journey into cryptocurrencies. I’ve decided that I’m perfectly willing to share my success and failures as I dip my toes in the water of something that many believe has already been completely subsumed by large corporate interests. I want to see–and document– if a hobbyist can still make money doing this, because the conventional wisdom right now says no, but I always have to learn everything the hard way.
Q: Are you giving financial advice?
A: Oh, hell no. I’m merely documenting what I’m doing. I’m not qualified to give anyone advice on much of anything, and certainly not financial advice. I would suspect that time will show I’m setting an example of what not to do if you want to make money.
Q: Why are you doing this?
A: I need a hobby. I tend to cycle through them every few years. I get absolutely obsessed with something and throw myself at it for awhile until I become a bit of an expert at it, then I get bored and move on. Cryptocurrency came along right as I was needing something new to obsess about.
Q: What mining pools are you using?
Q: Why is there so little content on here?
A: The site hasn’t done a hard launch yet. It’s just up and available while I work on it. If you found your way here, great! I hope you come back. Hard launch will be soon and content should be evolving every day.
