4th of July Road Trip - Valley of the Fire Nevada USA

Happy 4th of July, today I am taking you on a special road trip to one of the most magical places in America. An arid landscape that was covered with life and history way before Europeans arrived in this neck of the woods.


The Valley of the Fire is a state park located in the state of Nevada, USA about 1 hour drive northeast of Las Vegas. Truly stunning, the park is know for its red sandstone mountain formations, which contrast against the stunning and even more dominant white limestone mountains. 
The landscape is completely dry and it is hard to imagine that any culture was able to survive in the area. But proof is in the pudding and basically everywhere. Check out the video slide below for some beautiful images that I captured while visiting this unforgettable place.

Preservation is a must so other generations can enjoy and witness the wonders of this place.

Hope you enjoyed my Valley of Fire Adventure, and if so SUBSCRIBE to my LBRY Channel & Blog.

The Simpsons Cryptocurrency Episode - "Frinkcoin"


Cryptocurrencies are getting more popular than ever. Recently Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin symbols have been spotted in The Simpsons latest episode titled "Frinkcoin".  Frinkcoin is the 675Th episode of American animated sitcom which aired on FOX Channel February 23rd 2020. The plot of the comedy evolved around the development, adoption and the demise of Frinkcoin cryptocurrency. The show brought the subject matter to a wide audience and is quite educative about blockchain. In a very funny way of course.

Watch it on Fox


Many crypto advocates highlighted the episode on Twitter in celebration. Despite Litecoin being hilariously featured in an anti-blockchain formula; Charlie Lee the creator of Litecoin, was one of the first to tweet his excitement about the mention. 





Also on Twitter, @TheSimpsons account is having fun with the audience and the crypto community by running an asset pool. "Which one would you invest in?" With FrinkCoin taking the lead agains gold, renminbi and roadside corn. 





Quite funny, but certainly puts the value of money into perspective for many viewers who never stopped to think about it. After all currency, or better money, is something that the population acquire, use and find essencial to run a society. But most of us never really stop to think about how it was created, how it is administered and how the economic changes effect us. Finance, economy, investments are topics that only few dive into. These topics  are rarely presented to main stream in a comic manner and The Simpsons does an amazing job highlighting topics that need to be discussed by popular culture.

Overall as a crypto advocate,  I am personally quite happy with the exposure the show has given to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in general. The audience of The Simpsons is quite large. According to Statista.com, "the 29th season of The Simpsons drew in an average of 4.08 million viewers" In addition the show is also translated into many languages and transmitted in many countries in world. It is certain that many people who have never heard about blockchain technology will learn about it now as they watch the "FrinkCoin" episode. It is not certain if many of of them will jump into the cryptocurrency boat yet, but it is nice to know that many will at least have an insight about the topic and hopefully be more receptive towards it in the future.
