There have been some questions about ways to support me (Amal!) and / or DT in ways not related to purchases. For a time a Patreon was discussed as well as simple things like a PayPal donate button… but Patreon is expensive and PayPal is a terrible company we do not want to support, so for the moment I am setting up some simple options!
The first option is to subscribe to DT Club! Simply click the subscribe nav option and sign up!
I don’t really like the idea of including card processors and issuer banks in a transaction that is meant to be much more personal and meaningful than purchase of a product. It seems a bit disrespectful to give basically 3% and then some to banks and processors for something like this. Crypto still has its fees, and it is getting more ridiculous by the day, but for now it is still possible to transfer crypto for pennies where it would cost real dollars using more traditional methods.
If there are other crypto currencies you would like to toss my way, let me know and I will update this page with a wallet address for said currency.
Any financing headed my way in this manner will most likely be used for upgrades to the lab mostly. Better lab gear means better quality, more new projects, more experiments, and better safety. I have a few things I want to get including a small lab benchtop plasma sterilizer for example… that kind of thing is not cheap… and flex implants could really benefit from it… but the volume for flex just isn’t there to justify it outright.
So one of the features of Patreon is that you can get exclusive content etc. from the “creator” and you get to be part of the “in” crowd. I suppose a special secured category could be made here on the forum for members who contribute this way and I could post videos and updates there… give more insight into what’s happening inside the company etc.
