Click below to donate, nice and easy:
Donations given there or via https://streamlabs.com/lukesmithxyz/tip will automatically appear when I'm livestreaming as well. In streams, these are preferrable to YouTube SuperChats because YouTube takes something like 30% of the donation.
Note also you can donate Brave's BAT at any of my sites or donate LBC via Odysee/LBRY.
My domain and email are also included in OpenAlias,
allowing you to send BTC/XMR to me by just typing
firstname.lastname@example.org as a recipient
on Electrum or MyMonero.
If you have any bank account in the United States, you probably already have Zelle and don't know it. It's a protocol built in to your online bank that transfers money for free.
To use it:
Note: If you send a Zelle donation for the podcast with a question or comment, email me your comment as well because my bank doesn't properly show comments from Zelle donations.
Use these to "donate" to me without even costing you extra money. You often get rewards for following these links.
I stongly recommend the Vultr link below in particular if you are looking to start your own website/server because it is a good deal for you, but can also add up as good money for me.
(Yes, the affiliate link works even if it doesn't show anything when you first click.)

|👉 Vultr||Virtual Personal Server for web hosting, email, servers etc.||$100 credit for first month||$25 if you stay on and pay at least $25. This is a steal. We must be ripping them off at this point.|

Theoretically, there are other ways to donate if you prefer, but I don't use these much. Note that I no longer use Patreon or offer perks and it's just there for scheduled donations.
