I love trying out new platforms.

Most of the time, they don’t end up forming into new habits for me, or the network effects are too weak, or they die off altogether. But sometimes I end up loving them.

I’ve switched browsers many times. Currently I’m on Brave and using DuckDuckGo for search. I’ve been a lifelong Gmail guy, but am exploring some other options. I was all over Facebook for years but never do much on there now as I’ve moved to Twitter and now increasingly Twetch. I’ve tried Snap, Instagram, Tik Tok, and others (none of them stuck for me). I’ve also tried several podcast hosting apps.

I’ve never been a big fan of YouTube, but it has such an extensive library! When me and some friends started recording bitcoin chats every few weeks, I uploaded them there because I didn’t know where else to put them.

Now I’m also trying Streamanity, a video hosting platform where you can set the price and viewers pay in bitcoin. It’s still in that early phase with small user base and lots of kinks, but it’s fun!

Here’s a video I uploaded there, which happens to be an interview with the owner:
