About Ernest Rando

At the #ErnestGoesToBlockchain Project we Beta Test Blockchain applications as applied in the fields of Permaculture, Mutual Aid Disaster Relief, Bio-Regional Social Media Networks, Climate Change Adaptation & Resiliency, Local Food Systems, Crowd Funding & Farming, Land Trusts, and Community Volunteerism.

I have been reducing my dependency on fiat currency and corporations for over a decade while learning ways to increase my regenerative ecological footprint. It comes down to systems change and the governance of those systems. I hope to use this space to share with Mobile phone users, how best to begin learning about how to integrate Decentralized Blockchain Solutions. Web 3.0

Most of my research is loosely organized in this google doc, although it is about to go through some major updates, and I am eager to share what I learn and experience, from many perspectives. Not interested in gambling apps. Love the RPG+ though and feel free to find me in Splinterlands.io, LightNite.io


I am a Permaculture Designer that helps folks learn how to use social media. I am a self funded community volunteer active directly in my local and regional watersheds. I am currently Beta Testing and following the development of about 100 completely new applications of which most GAFA (Google, Amazon, Facebook, & Apple) Users are unaware. Contributions help me teach others how to use Blockchain Solutions, Thanx! You can find me on the decentralized web, by Downloading the Unstoppable Browser and visiting https://ErnestOfGaia.Crypto

Join My Telegram Channel #ErnestGoesToBlockchain and feel free to ask me questions 24/7
