Testing CryptoYum…

… and some screen-capture awesomeness.

Getting close my friends…!


Just the Grind… and We Love It.

Peter and I were working even during Thanksgiving. 

This is our privilege and gift. This is our opportunity. 

Why? Because we believe we’re doing an important work for you, for ourselves, for all of us together.

Crypto doesn’t sleep… and we’re going to ensure that the very best content is available to read and consume so that you can learn and grow whenever you want.

Every day. The grind. We love it. And… we love you.

Have a great and restful weekend.


Refining. Iterating. Building. Testing. 📲 📲 📲 📲

I originally sent this to the folks who are subscribed to CryptoYum via PH Ship Platform.

I’m working. Hard. To put things together.

My original hope was to have something… ANYTHING… by Thanksgiving but I recently redid the entire backend and that threw me off about 4-6 weeks… and at this point in time it looks like it’s going to be on the more liberal side of that estimate.

But, this is how you build things. This is how you grind. This is how you create something that you believe people want. You refine. You iterate. You build. You test.

You work your ass off and pray and hope that people on the other end will do their part… and show up and use it.

I’m sure you’re doing the same… with whatever you’re putting together.

Just like me, you’re refining… iterating… building… testing… you’re doing all of these things for your profession, your career, your relationships, and even your hobbies and recreation.

We’re moving slowly forward and hoping that we’re on the right path… praying that we’re doing it right.

Together, we’ll overcome.

I love what I get to do. I’m grateful for it. I’m thankful for folks who support me. I’m sure you are too.

Have a great Thanksgiving week folks.



I’m Enjoying My Test Data…

The death of SegWit2X a total win I’ve been enjoying all of the news data that’s streaming into my test environment while building CryptoYum.

It just reminds me that the ethics and principles around decentralization will win the day and that we can bank on the blockchain.

The Doge Lord and I are continuing to work every single day at building what we believe is going to be a very powerful tool for our community and our efforts are bolstered constantly by your support!

Without you all we wouldn’t be able to do what we get to do!

Again, please consider the following:

1. Share the good news the death of SegWit2x!
2. Tell others about The Bitcoin Pub!
3. Get more folks to signup to CryptoYum!

You all rock. Have a pleasant day.

CryptoYum: Keeping You Updated with Trending Topics


Fellow Cryptonauts!

Here’s a very early screenshot of a Trending Topics (or “Hot Topics”) that we’re working on inside CryptoYum that’ll ensure that you have the absolute best news and article coverage for your daily inspiration, reading, and education.

There’s a lot happening in the crypto-space and so we feel like we have an opportunity to serve our users with the topic posts of the day. This way if you have only a little time to spend that we can ensure you’re getting the best information at your fingertips.

So, there’s that.

Love you guys. Keep rockin’! And, of course, thank you for your patronage!

– The Doge Lord


Building the Login System for CryptoYum!

Things are moving in the right direction friends! 

November is going to be just as good as October… if not better!

Your support, every single month, means that The Doge Lord and I can spend time doing this!

Hey all. 

Even though I’ve kind of had a major life event happen recently… Peter and I are working hard on putting CryptoYum together, every single day (and night).

What this looks like is quite simple:

This is pretty much my life now.

But, you know what…

It’s amazing. Thumbs-up. 👍🏼

Life is better when it’s full, right?

Here are some more shots of my work last night building out the Day Time / Night Modes:

No one works harder than Peter and I. No one.


Login, Read, Profit!

Hey all!

Peter and I are GRINDING on CryptoYum and working every day on making this app better.

One of the things that I designed last night was the login screen:

And what we have is:

Login, Read, and Profit!

It’s kind of a slogan, of sorts… but that’s really our driving hope is that this app can become one of your best crypto-friends… and that it’s something that you can check into every single day and get the very best news and resources for you.

We really can’t wait to show you.

You are our CRYPTONAUTS and we expect big things from you all… especially when we get closer to testing! As always, you are getting all of the behind-the-scenes stuff for our apps and product development.

Your support means a ton!


CryptoYum on Product Hunt SHIP! Join the LAUNCH TEAM!

Hey folks!

Just wanted you all to be some of the first to know that we’ve launched our small (yet effective) temporary landing page for CryptoYum!

You can check it out here… and also read some more candid thoughts on why The Doge Lord and I decided to build this app in the first place!

For those who are Cryptonauts, you are still uniquely getting Alpha / Beta access and, of course, the sneak-peeks and behind-the-scenes…!

Thanks for all of your support and we hope to have a MASSIVELY-EPIC LAUNCH TEAM when all is said and done!

To the moon, guys!



Cupcakes All The Things?! Design Iterations for CryptoYum Brand!

A quick update for all of our Cryptonauts!

Here’s a look at the design iterations that we went through to get closer to what we felt was going to be an epic brand for CryptoYum!

We ultimately decided to move forward with the first version… and then did a few more iterations and color schematics on that version.

Here are some examples:

And then we decided to take one final look at how it might be seen inside of the app itself, which is always a good way to get an overall feel.

Take a look:


We’re continuing to build this month and hopefully have things moving forward as quickly as possible. 

This is a big month for us as we hope to have the first Alpha Version available for all of you to test this month! It’s a huge goal and we’re not sure if we’re going to make it, to be honest, but, we’re going to give it a shot.

Why the hell not.
