Philosopher. Founder of WIP Publishing & PAGE DAO. Author of Formal Dialectics and Bring Back Satire.


The goal of the publishing process is to help authors make money from their written work — it sure isn’t doing a good job, lately, is it?

Hey everyone! I’ve been absent for awhile, and I want to start writing again! It has been remarkable to join a community of other writers from around the internet and the world to create a startup company capable of taking on the largest players in our industry. None of this would be possible without the open-source ethics and purity of heart displayed by industry insiders and cynics alike when the values we collectively aim to manifest come up in conversation. …


Thomas Dylan Daniel reflects on the history of Formal Dialectics and looks to the future.

It’s hard to believe two years are all the time that has passed since Formal Dialectics was released at the end of 2018. Authoritarianism, an out-of-control pandemic, and continuous misadventures by top officials in government have characterized the past period in our shared political history and the time has dragged by as we collectively suffered for these mistakes by our political elite.

My reason for investing so much time into the creation of Formal Dialectics was that it seemed philosophy could be used to improve decision-making at the highest levels; it appears the world is not yet ready to engage…

September 2021

Upcoming: WIP Publishing + PizzaDAO Collabs!

Earthlings, August was an amazing month. It is now over — it’s time for September to begin! There is so much exciting news that it’s rather difficult to even choose a starting point, but I suppose the best place to begin is at the beginning. As August dawned, the plucky WIPP team knew it had two directions to build in: the PAGE token and the NFTBook Bazaar marketplace. …

Finally, a bit of interoperability gets up and running — TLDR; it’s amazing.

Osmosis made history on June 18, 2021, by launching a massively inflationary token in an extremely creative way. 1,000,000,000 $OSMO tokens will become available over the next 10 years after a quadratic fairdrop distributed the first massive chunk of them to the community for free. I highly recommend starting here and reading all of their articles on Medium.

Emeris has also earned the right to a place in this article by launching without a native token at all. The existing Cosmos ($ATOM) token will do just fine as a way to pay gas fees on this decentralized exchange built…

Why, your gateway to the internet of blockchains, of course.

A Cosmos SDK Blockchain involves 3 parts. The first is the state machine, which records the changing states of the network. The second is the network, which essentially consists of all of the users who hold the token, including but not limited to the validators who keep the network online. The third part is the cryptocurrency itself; a coin because it is used to ensure financial reconciliation for transactions that take place on the network. The purpose of a Cosmos SDK Blockchain is to ensure that users pay to use the network and validators are paid to keep the network…

As of this afternoon, the WIPP ethereum wallet was emptied of PAGE tokens! See for yourself at, use this contract address: 0x60e683c6514edd5f758a55b6f393bebbafaa8d5e. If you haven’t been following along, feel free to peruse this month’s update here. We sent all of the remaining PAGE token supply to the multisig array which will allow for fair and verifiable transactions. Following successful creation of our TosDis smart contract, it has been relatively simple to set up the rest of the smart contracts needed to distribute the PAGE token.

In this document, we’ll go over the rules and distributions in some detail, explaining…

Introducing the PAGE token. Coming 8/11.

Greetings, citizens of the world! Work in Progress Publishing has been hard at work for another month, and we have more exciting news for you. Not only has work continued on the NFTBook Bazaar, a project we hope to have live as a beta by September 1, 2021… we have launched our own cryptocurrency: the PAGE token. View our liquidity mining guide here.

2 weeks later, not much has changed.

I spent last evening listening to an event on Twitter featuring Bitcoiners from all over the world speaking with one another in quite a conversational way. It was my plan to sit down and spend the time writing out some thoughts on geopolitics, as the Russian declaration that it was moving away from the US Dollar made its ripples in recently-sideways crypto markets. Like the rest of the longs, I’ve been patiently waiting for this consolidation period to end so that a return to the dopamine rush of endless new all-time highs can occur. …
