Anyone use CoinBase?

Been testing out coinbase and doing a few of their tutorials on Crypto.

The “lessons” are simple, three multiple choice answers and you can get them wrong as many times as you want (as i did). You get $10 for each of the lessons you complete which i assume comes from the marketing department of which ever crypto. Its available to both new and existing CB users. Crypto transfer is instant after you select the right answers. Easy money for an afternoon on the sofa.

Lesson One

Lesson Two

Lesson Three

Technical Notice

As you know, for the last few months (and more), this blog has been falling over like a particularly clumsy dipsomaniac on a bouncy castle. This was essentially because the server couldn’t take the weight of traffic; and, when the server fell over, it tended to corrupt and crash database tables.

Over the last 24 hours, we have completed the switch to a new hosting company, with burst-able resources, that should ensure that this blog stays firmly in the land of the living. In the course of this transfer, some comments may have been lost—we do hope that you’ll forgive this unavoidable problem.

Obviously there will be some fine-tuning to do—both from an aesthetics perspective, and a performance angle. If you do spot anything behaving weirdly, please leave a comment here and we’ll try to sort it out as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience over the last day or so; and now—onwards and upwards!
