This website was built by a retired management consultant born in Glasgow in 1951 and now living in Buckinghamshire, UK who professionally specialized in IT for 40 years and began maintaining the site content as a hobby during the Covid-19 lockdown. He is not a financial advisor and has followed developments in blockchain technology only since 2018. With his background in computer programming he likes the quotation, "What I mean is that if you really want to understand something, the best way is to try and explain it to someone else. That forces you to sort it out in your mind. And the more slow and dim-witted your pupil, the more you have to break things down into more and more simple ideas. And that's really the essence of programming. By the time you've sorted out a complicated idea into little steps that even a stupid machine can deal with, you've learned something about it yourself." - Douglas Adams in Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (1987).
So this site content is intended to provide introductory guidance to newcomers to the cryptocurrency space while providing entertainment by using characters and themes created by Douglas Noel Adams (1952 - 2001) for the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy BBC radio and television series. Douglas Adams once said, "The fact that we live at the bottom of a gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be."
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was first broadcast in the United Kingdom by BBC Radio 4 in 1978. The first novel was published in 1979. So I expect this site to appeal most to Baby Boomers, Generation X and Xennials.
This website does not represent a business. Unlike cryptocurrency influencers on YouTube, who earn income from advertising and viewership of their channels, the owner of this website receives no income from its usage or popularity and is motivated solely by a desire to pass on some of what he has managed to learn. The cost of maintaining the site far exceeds income received via referral links in the site. It is non-profit unless fans and followers choose to spend insane quantities of crypto on our collectibles.
