  • Hive: A social network and blogging platform with communities similar to Reddit, where users' upvotes (likes) are worth cryptocurrency. The more of Hive's cryptocurrency you have in the form of HIVE Power (HP), the more your upvotes will be worth. In English.
  • Splinterlands: An online trading card game where it's possible to earn cryptocurrency both from normal battles as well as from tournament prizes, and also by selling cards or placing them for rent. In English.
  • Free Crypto Faucets: Learn what are crypto faucet websites and how to use them to earn afew bucks. I'll already say that it's not possible to get rich using faucets (unless the user saves the earnings in a cryptocurrency and its value soars to the heights, similar to what happened to Bitcoin since it began, but that would be hard to happen). Expect only a few bucks, from pennies to a couple of dollars. Check out how much I've earned in one year, collecting crypto around 100 times every day. Even though the earnings are small, they have their uses. They may be traded for the Hive social network's cryptocurrency (it's what I had been doing), or to buy Splinterlands game cards, for example. In English.

Web Development

  • Nikola: The static blog system this site uses now. Very customizable. Site in English.
  • DreamHost.com: This site's previous web host. It has many nice features like support for scripts in PHP, Perl, Python and other languages, Shell access to the server and very good documentation about how to use the services. I don't use this webhost anymore because I don't need all those resources, but to those who need them, I certainly recommend the service. In English.
