Cryptocurrency and Stocks


For this week’s update I thought I’d do something a little different, as a hallmark of my newsletter is its unpredictability.

One week I’m sending you a travel update, the next I’m writing an absurdist short story about a New Age detective…

This week I wanted to provide a snapshot of the cryptocurrency and stocks I’m in.


I was introduced to cryptocurrency earlier this year by a steroid-using German pothead and sex addict in his 20s who was staying at my hotel (who also later stole $700 from me after luring me into thinking he was my friend). Perhaps that should have been the first sign that these units of value are a little…dodgy.

Speak of dodgy, DOGE-y. (Dogecoin).

Yes, I did make some money on it, but quickly lost it by recommitting money and then watching the stock plummet after Asperger’s ambassador Elon Musk grovel on Saturday Night Live.

With that said, here are the cryptocurrencies I currently hold. I use the exchange Kraken.

Tezos (XTZ)

Kava (KAVA)

Cardano (ADA)

Polkadot (DOT)

Decentraland (MANA)

Ocean (OCEAN)

Siacoin (SC)

Algorand (ALGO)


I’d tell you the full story about me and stocks, but frankly I’m not a masochist.

So instead I’ll just tell you the stocks I currently hold. These ones seem to be doing OK, but let’s just say that once I sell I won’t be back…

JZXN: Jiuzi Holdings. (Company that sells battery-operated electric vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles in third-fourth tier cities in China).

INUV: Inuvo Inc. (Internet advertising technology and digital publishing company).

PETZ: TDH Holdings Inc. (Company engaged in the production and sales of of pet foods).
