Digital🛢- Will you strike digital oil? Issue #1


The scavenger hunt is designed for beginners. Quite possibly people that have never interacted with a blockchain directly. My objective is to get as many people as I can to speculate less about price of tokens they (many times) don’t understand, and actually learn how to interact with blockchains.


Each week(ish) you’ll receive a new issue of this newsletter. Each issue will have a very simple task. Every four issues, all the subscribers that completed the 4 tasks, will automatically enter into a random draw and the winner will be sent $500 in USDC. USDC is a token (stablecoin, actually) that is equivalent to $1 USD. So yes, somebody will be paid $500 worth of crypto for embarking with me on this learning journey.


In the first issue, I’ll teach you how to open a crypto wallet. That wallet will have an address similar to an e-mail address. That address will be your identity on the blockchain. Your wallet will control all the crypto sent to your address. Meaning you can use it to spend, invest, or send it to a friend.


My favorite blockchain is Ethereum. However, it’s expensive to transact on what’s called L1 (layer 1) Ethereum. So, we will be using an L2 (layer 2) blockchain that settles value on Ethereum called Polygon. This means that the crypto (including USDC) that you receive on Polygon is just as good as the crypto you would have on Ethereum, and it can be bridged over whenever you want.


We’ll spend the next week trying to get as many people as possible to sign up for this newsletter. Why should you get people to sign up if that means more competition for the $500 in USDC? Well, the first scavenger hunt initiates once we have 10 people that completed the first task, so I need your help to get as many people signed up so that we can ensure getting 10 people that will actually try and do the stuff I’m going to ask for; which again, is really really simple stuff that a 4th grader can do.
