I do everything in my spare time, and currently maintain several things that may be of use to others:
I don't make money via advertising on this website. I do have adsense enabled on my YouTube account, but I rarely get a payment from YouTube at the moment.
I have decided to accept donations of cryptocurrency to support my work. By donating, you will be directly supporting projects and further content on this website and my YouTube channel.
This is in rough list of priority.
I appreciate every donation, no matter how small. And even if you can't donate but simply enjoy the content on this website, that's fine too! You can also support me by watching my Youtube videos with adblock disabled, if you wish.
However if you'd like to donate some cryptocurrency, I would really appreciate it. You can do this anonymously, or for the supported platforms you can include a small message with your donation if you'd like a shoutout on this page.
If the crypto currency you'd like to donate with is not listed and you don't want to convert your currency to one I currently accept, please click here to get in touch and I'll setup a wallet for it.
I consider cryptocurrency fairer and simpler than using patreon:
I live in Japan. Foreign residents are discriminated against by banks when trying to obtain anything other than the most basic financial services unless you have lived here for a long time - and even then discrimination is still high. I am currently unable to get a credit card or a real debit card; I'm stuck with an ATM/cash machine card only that does not work online.
This also means I am unable to create a PayPal account that will accept deposits. If you wanted to donate via PayPal and can't do so via cryptocurrency, I appreciate the kind thought but I cannot accept your donation at this moment due to personal circumstances.
Cash-On-Delivery. It's big in Japan, probably because the banks here suck and many people are in the same situation as me. My favourite large PC retailer https://www.ark-pc.co.jp/ do Cash-On-Delivery, so does Amazon Japan - and many other places. That's just how it is here.
By begging a friend to allow me to borrow their credit card temporarily to top up funds on my server provider (thankfully they allow prepayment), and pay them back immediately with cash. It sucks. NO, I can NOT do this for large purchases, only my web hosting!
Please be careful to use the entire wallet address, my current theme wraps it onto 2 lines. I'll fix that eventually.
While I would be eternally grateful to receive donations in bitcoin, I don't think that would actually happen - it is currently an extremely good cryptocurrency to hold onto as an investment. Therefore I have not yet setup a local bitcoin wallet (the blockchain is rather large, so there is no point in me setting up a local wallet unless I actually am likely to get some bitcoin).
If you would like to send me bitcoin, please do get in touch and I'll setup a wallet.
None yet. I'm grateful that you just enjoy my content however :) Thank you
After donating, feel free to shoot me an email if you want to be added to this list.
