Travel the globe. Pay in crypto.
Run by two Crypto geeks, the Airbnb for Crypto Nomads seeks to connect the blockchain community on a human level through vacation rentals paid using cryptocurrencies with a vision to lower transaction costs.
Their idea is to build a trusted community of hosts who share a similar mindset and openness to a decentralized future, as well as safe home on your travels.
You can see this taking off for blockchain conferences which appear to be almost every week around the globe.
With 194 rentals in the States alone, there are options. But given the lack of reviews, the site appears very much in its infancy.

WHY PRODUCTIVITY APPS DON’T WORK UNLESS YOU SOLVE THESE 5 THINGS
There are hundreds, if not thousands of apps out there that will promise to make you the productivity guru you’ve longed to become.
They’ll make you work smarter, better, faster.
From email, to-do, calendar, notes, workflow, and everything else apps, there’s tons to choose from. As a result many spend a lot of productive time shifting between apps, without getting significant work done.
A set of productivity tools augments and enhances your productivity. We easily forget that it isn’t the tool that makes us actually productive. The reality is, until you can exercise better work habits, these productivity apps won’t help you.
So how do you build a productivity system that works for you? Here’s 5 tips:
- Firstly understand an app alone isn’t going to make you more productive. Stop relying on apps and build better work routines. Get yourself organized and what makes you tick and stay focused.
- Become a productivity artist: research a wide range of work styles and techniques to influence your own personal style.
- Cut the distractions, find your flow and stick to a few apps that actually help you move the needle.
- Try a system for at least thirty days, you’re free to stick with it or try something different. Take notes along the way.
- Audit & remix the best principles, systems, apps and methods that provide results for YOU.
Reach your full performance potential by making sure your apps are always working for you, not against you.
