What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Hey everybody! For all who have engaged with me on my journey through startups and downs, thank you for for tuning in. At this time, I wanted to provide a personal and professional update articulating some lessons, learnings, and what I’m looking at as we step into the future at blazing speeds.
I recently joined the folks over at Lear Capital, America’s leader in precious metals since 1997, based in Santa Monica, CA, to help direct their efforts in embracing the digital future of independent-minded investing through Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. While Lear remains a leader in precious metals, BlockMint is its digital sister — where we help custody the hardest money on earth with military-grade security.
Joining BlockMint in September 2020, for me, was the close of a bit of a synchronistic loop, as I had consulted with Lear Capital in 2017 to help initiate the inception of their digital asset product offering, and shared my experience in the sizzling crypto markets.
A Bit of where I’ve been
It was shortly after my crypto-consultation for BlockMint in 2017 that I would end up co-founding Thor Technologies, which aimed to provide health and retirement benefits to contract workers and a painless payment system for the business’ that hire contract workers — which would utilize the NEO blockchain for developing a digital identity system to enable a powerful transaction and record-keeping system for transactions. That experience was a fully-featured tour through the 2017 crypto ICO mania, as well as the free fall through the 2018-19 bear market, with some tough lessons on trust from a slimy business partner and a highly sophisticated SAMO AI bot, whom I shared a first name with at Thor Tech.
After the collapse of Thor, I was determined to give myself a go at leading the show. There were many enjoyable highlights and relationships developed during the year and a half that I sought to build a ‘tech’ company that sought to bring ‘sol’ to an industry that had become overtly exploitive of its ‘users’. I wanted a business model that saw people as sols — a sovereign person, and not as ‘users’ to be exploited (as a leading example of corporate exploitation, see Facebook).
This, I would end up understanding to be perhaps one of the greatest challenges in the world to solve...It was an attempt to crack one of the mostly voraciously guarded stations in the SAMO status quo system... and I had no more resources to approach it. Am I crazy? In upside down world, YES. But at least I can say I tried ; )
When the plandemic hit, I was already downsized with my family, living in a tiny home in the big outdoors of the Santa Monica mountain range bordering Malibu. The early days of CV19 helped bring a close to my efforts at Sol Forms with a string of cancelled meetings — but that’s no excuse. I simply had not cracked the hardest problem I knew of on the planet, and so began considering what my next role would be. A short while later, my contacts at Lear Capital would reach out to me about engaging BlockMint.
Cutting back is better
Those of you who know me, know that I enjoy the space on the cutting edge of the unknown...the place where invention, creativity, and innovation can happen. You may also know that I love to surf waves in the ocean. And I’m finding a parallel in the historic flaws of my surfing to the flaws in my career — I often fail to cut back, and find the sweet spot. If you surf too fast down the line, you run out of wave to surf. Pretty similar result for my startup efforts... I went zooming ahead into the frontier, and failed to make a savvy cutback to balance in the sweet spot on the giant wave of systemic change in our financial system and everything about to get washed out with it. In short, I was getting ahead of myself...or rather, the cresting wave of the TIMES, to put more accurately.
The development of mobile technology, and designing solutions that fully embraced our humanities are what have interested me most over the years, especially since Steve launched the Apple iPhone in 2007. In the right hands, Technology can be the most powerful decentralizing force, in a world that has been grossly centralized— a model that has been proven dangerous and destructive to life on the planet, especially in the wake of 19 (you know the thing).
It’s time to redistribute power on earth. Fortunately, the decentralizing process is well underway, and it is accelerating. Those who have been in the shadows controlling the worlds financial systems no longer have complete control of our currency, our governments, or our access to information... Despite recent attempts from their good old boys in Big Tech and the SAMO Media to control narratives and information flow through censorship.
Bitcoin is a savage, quite possibly unstoppable cyber-hive of ever increasing intelligence and security that won’t be censored (Thanks for that one, Michael!). Unlike gold, it keeps learning and evolving continuously — yet it’s also fixed in supply. Don’t take that as a knock on Gold — precious metals have always been there for us as a hedge against governments and the inevitable end of the fiat- money printing madness. But Bitcoin gave all people a powerful internet-based technology to take the power back, away from centralized systems of oppression — systems we would benefit from canceling, one way or another. It is the social social network of Money, and it doesn’t have a CEO, or any employees. It is the shared property of the global hive mind, giving structure and mathematical backing to an economy being built on individual sovereignty instead of heartless archontic overlords.
With Bitcoin just 11 years old, it’s quite fair to say that it’s still really early days in it’s likely ascent to become the worlds ‘reserve’ currency (It’s currently the 6th biggest currency). Bitcoin is still ‘small’, in that sense. It’s approximate $200 Billion market capitalization at the time of this writing is tiny compared to gold, which weighs about $9 Trillion. Or the total global money supply, which hovers near $80 Trillion.
Rest assured, Bitcoin is NOT the myspace to Zuckerburglar’s centralized censorship spyware, (currently installed on the devices of over 2.3 Billion people), as some have speculated. MySpace was never worth $100 Billion. Things that go to $100 Billion first, by such a large margin, usually have a pretty damn good chance at dominating their space. Bitcoin is highly dominant in the cryptocurrency space... everything else is an imitation — though many of these imitations I do admire, and believe will also find their niches to provide great value in our new financial system. I’ve placed my bets … But I learned in 2017 not to lose focus on Bitcoin, the King of Crypto. And I do believe it is a glorious sweet spot, one of the BIGGEST waves that are changing the the shape of commerce on earth. It’s a wave I’d much rather be surfing the face of then get pounded in the impact zone of, floundering with fiat money.
So that’s why I now spend hours every day speaking with people about Bitcoin. I feel like I’m getting closer to the sweet spot underneath the cresting Bitcoin wave. Everyday I’m getting more comfortable in my new role, spreading the gospel of Bitcoin. Hopefully soon, I’ll be able to find myself also in the sweet spot underneath another golden, glassy pitching wave of water and light from the west.
Yes, it is still very early. VERY early. Bitcoin is not even 12 years old yet. We have a LONG way to go in this financial transition. I'll be exploring many of the UNKNOWNS about digital assets on my new Freestory Podcast. Cheers to finding the answers to our questions together! Got questions about the space? ASK ME!
