FTL & LRN.FM Updates

Now Accepting Stellar Lumens (XLM)!

September 28th, 2019 - 11:18am by FTL_Admin in

As we discussed recently on the show, Stellar is a very exciting technology for native exchange of assets like stablecoins and other cryptos. I'm using Stellar Lumens (XLM) on our Discord as my primary tipping method with our new crypto tip bot . Now, we're accepting contributions via Stellar Lumens - see our wallet address along with several other cryptos on our Tip Jar page .

Don't forget you can follow Free Talk Live on Twitter , Mastodon , and Telegram !

Thanks for listening to and supporting Free Talk Live, Ian

Now you can get paid to hang out on our Discord thanks to the awesome tipping bot!

This is such cool news I thought it deserves its own email. This weekend I was recommended a new bot for our Discord server . Normally bots are used for things like moderation but this bot, tip.cc ., is a crypto tipping bot. This bot is amazing. It lets you easily tip anyone on the LRN.FM Discord server . Not only can you tip other chatters, your favorite callers, and favorite show hosts - most are on Discord - but you can also "airdrop" crypto into a chat room and let anyone who wants it, lock in their claim. After a time limit specified by the tipper, the airdrop is divvied up between those who opted-in. You can do some other neat stuff with the bot. Its username is "tip.cc". Just send it a private message of "$help" - without the quotes - to learn some basics. Click the little icons that appear under its help message to see even more commands.

Twitch Follower Count Crosses 1,000

August 17th, 2019 - 5:52pm by FTL_Admin in

If you've followed us on Twitch, thank you! Hopefully you've found the video stream notifications useful. After about a year-and-a-half of streaming on Twitch, we've crossed 1,000 followers there. Unfortunately, we're still nowhere near being close to 75 concurrent viewers during a stream, which they require to reach "partner" status. Guessing we'll need to reach 10,000 followers before we can be in that neighborhood. If you'd like to follow our Twich channel, please do at http://twitch.lrn.fm

Also, if you'd prefer a blockchain-based video streaming platform, please follow our DLive channel at http://dlive.lrn.fm - we have over 780 followers there and have done that in less than a year - much faster than on Twitch. They've got a pretty good app and already gave us partner status, so I've switched out 720p HD feed to DLive. Please follow us at http://dlive.lrn.fm and...

LRN's Discord Called "The largest active libertarian community on all of Discord"

August 10th, 2019 - 1:19pm by FTL_Admin in

We just got major props from a newer user on our Discord server , Jaws, who said, "On a side note, I'm mega happy about this server. This is the largest active libertarian community on all of discord." If you haven't logged in to see what he's so excited about, please take a moment to join the conversation there. There are a couple of hoops to jump through, but it's not complicated. Here's how: 1. Download the Discord app. 2. Create an account and login. 3. Load this link in your web browser and you'll be loaded into our Discord server: http://discord.lrn.fm Easy!

Also, I just posted the video of Mark's speech at Porcfest where he gets called out on his BS by Free State Project founder Jason Sorens. You can watch it in full here .

Now Accepting MONERO Donations!

August 3rd, 2019 - 6:15pm by FTL_Admin in

Free Talk Live is now accepting contributions in Monero , the world's premiere privacy coin. There are some great privacy coins out there including ZCash (ZEC) and Horizen (ZEN), but so far Monero has been chosen as the current privacy coin preference by the DarkNet markets globally. Back when Bitcoin (BTC) came out, its adoption by the world's first DarkNet market, " Silk Road " arguably was a key factor to help propel Bitcoin in its early years. The fact that DarkNet markets are embracing Monero may also portend a bright future for the unique coin. Of course, never invest what you can't afford to lose. If you don't have a Monero wallet yet, you can easily add it to your Edge Wallet .

You'll find the QR codes and wallet addresses for Monero as well as several other cryptos on our Crypto Tip Jar page .
