Bitcoin community spotlight: johnniewalker
Let’s set aside some time today to get to know one of the outstanding members of the Bitcoin community a bit better. In the spotlight today is one johnniewalker, whose entrepreneurial spirit is an inspiration to all of us.
He introduces himself with the following:
I’m johnniewalker! I’m interested in conducting business in the marketplace section. I have a variety of goods I’m interested in and will have an ever-changing supply of goods to offer. Primarily (as you may have guessed by my name) I am interested in brewerania, rare alcohol, foreign alcohol, etc. If you are looking for anything along those lines, I’m your man! Nice to meet everyone
After this he goes about becoming part of the community, discussing whatever it is that Bitcoiners discuss. He doesn’t waste too much time though, getting down to business, offering Cuban rum, brass knuckles (never used!) cigars, and cans of pepper spray of questionable origin. This isn’t where johnniewalker shines though. You see, our intrepid friend here happens to be an amateur metallurgist, smelting his own silver ingots at home. In his back yard. on his patio covered with flammable things.
Our new friend johnniewalker wasn’t done there, however, and after this flameout, he returns to selling old coins, contraband, and random useless junk. He’s then struck with inspiration, and is buying Bitcoin-related domain names, then marking them up four to five times actual registration costs and selling them to suckers for their hard-”earned” digital currency:
“Warm wallet.” Eww. The mess of useless domains above is his newest plan to get rich, along with the (likely fake) Cuban cigars, pepper spray, Bitcoin bills, and lumpy chips of impure silver. He may seem like just another clueless, metal hoarding libertarian, but he’s on his way up Up UP! and you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on him as he takes the Bitcoin world by storm, or at least until he earns a “SCAMMER” tag on the forums and has to re-register to hide his shame.
