Hey everyone, it’s that time of the year! 💥
Due to the holidays, I’m going to keep this edition short and sweet. Instead of compiling a massive list below, I’m just going to share a few select deals on products and services I personally use on a daily basis.

One of the best movies ever 😉 (Jingle All the Way)

Interesting things 🔎
Misc.
WordPress
  • OpenPress, a new social community for WordPress users. Definitely an interesting idea!
  • WooCommerce merchants can now offer crypto payments safely and conveniently through Coinbase Commerce.
  • In case you missed it, WordPress 6.1 is here. Carlo wrote up an in-depth summary of all the changes.
Performance
Marketing
Bitcoin (not financial advice)
  • Hands down the best article I’ve ever read on why Bitcoin is important and how it’s different than the rest. 👏
  • Most of the mainstream media is wrong. Here is a good piece on what really happened with FTX. And why I Bitcoin.
  • Apple might be close to getting the streaming rights to Big Short author’s book on FTX collapse. We need a movie!
  • Self-custody lets you sleep easy at night. Grab a Ledger or use a multi-sig solution like Casa or Unchained Capital.
  • Need an easy way to file taxes? I recommend Koinly; it works great!
  • You will soon be able to purchase Bitcoin at Fidelity. While I only advocate self-custody, I think this is good for adoption.
  • Jason Lowery has been invited to advise the White House on the national strategic security benefits of Bitcoin.
Happy Thanksgiving
