A sat down with the creator of Canonic - a radical new approach to book publishing - and we got into some interesting stuff not just about my newest book, The Inner Game of Startups, but what all this means for the world.
And here are some instructions for those who have no effing clue what BSV is or how to buy a book with it:
Get BSV to get the new book
Setup an account on Coinbase if you don't have one yet
Buy a few hundred bucks worth of USDC (it's a token pegged to the US dollar)
Go to RelayX.com and create a BSV wallet
Good. Now you have a wallet with USDC on Coinbase, and a wallet ready to recieve BSV on RelayX. Then you just need to swap the USDC for BSV.
Go to coinshuffle.io
Select USDC to BSV
Enter the amount you're swapping, click 'exchange'
Paste your RelayX wallet address where you'll receive the BSV (in your RelayX app, click "receive" then "copy address"; on desktop click "add funds" then copy address)
Paste your USDC address for refund in case swap goes bad (hit "receive" in Coinbase, and copy)
Execute the swap
Now buy the book on Canonic with a single swipe!
Though using BSV is instant and almost free, no other cryptocurrency is. So you'll have to wait probably ~10 minutes for the swap to execute because Coinbase and USDC are slow, and Coinshuffle will take a fee.
BUT here's the good news. You'll now have a few hundred bucks of BSV in your RelayX wallet, which means you can instantly buy the book, AND you can use a whole bunch of other cool apps and games on BSV.
Thanks for being with me on my journey btw
If you're reading this, I owe you a thanks. I've been blogging, podcasting, Tweeting, publishing books, building stuff and sharing crazy ideas for over a decade now, and all along the way I've had so many amazing people willing to read, listen, like, comment, and share great feedback and stories with me. I do these things selfishly, but of course I get a massive morale boost when I see evidence of a Remnant out there that appreciates and supports it!
