Vanholio's been hearin' about Bitcoin, Monero, Litecoin, Dash, and the blockchain rest of 'em years. But no one could explain ta him how this shit works. Till now!

Plus this kinda tech is a boon to workin' digital nomads, in vans or not. Now the only trick is findin' clients and stores to do business with ...

Check out this Dash School video series below by journalist Amanda B. Johnson. The first three videos explain blockchain-based cryptocurrencies in general. Then in the last three, she pushes her favorite, Dash.

    Hi Vanholio. You certainly put a lot of heart into this blog. I've read a ton of your posts and enjoy every single one. If you're into cryptocurrency and want to use your articles to make money, post them on If you haven't heard of Steemit, Google it to read up a bit first. Bascially, your content, comments, etc allow you to earn Steem dollars, which you can convert to US dollars. There are some people making a lot of money on there and I think your articles would do really well. I'm cali-girl on there by the way. :)

    1. Thanks for the heads up! I'm not all into cryptocurrency, though I'm curious about it. I republished one or two posts to Steemit, but it didn't do much. I think I'd need to commit to publishing there with fresh material, and I don't have the time now. Maybe in the future!

    2. Well, Cali-girl, my schedule just opened way the hell up, so I started posting Steemit. I'm going to focus there more on day-to-day travel tales and general observations. Also reposting stuff from this site. We'll see how it goes!
