I received my Project Skyhook Bitcoin ATM. Here's a few pictures of the unboxing and a short video demonstration...

I will be using this ATM for my club, the Penn State University Bitcoin Club, to make it easier for students to purchase bitcoin on campus.

One of the big goals of the club is to promote bitcoin for philanthropic purposes. We've just launched our first campaign to help fund a medical treatment for a fellow bitcoiner. You can read more about his story and our campaign here:

BitBox02 & KeepKey honest reviews

BitBox02 & KeepKey honest reviews

Hey, Bitcoin community 👋

I've just joined after a small research over the web, and decided to share some of my thoughts about these hardware wallets as individual experience.
KeepKey
The first hardware wallet I've received was the KeepKey, which acquired by the ShapeShift platform. It has some great advantages I liked at first sight:
  1. Using ShapeShift platform web to communicate between the wallet and the outside world. On the platform you could watch your assets with nice graphs, send & receive Bitcoin (and other ERC20 tokens) and trade between assets without commission (as long as you have FOX tokens - more on the ShapeShift subreddit).
  2. The most cheap hardware wallet, can be purchased for only 10$ here
  3. Great customer support! any question I sent them was answered quickly
The KeepKey via the web platform needs to be verified by a PIN (4 to 9 digits) of your choose. I didn't like it has there is no zero ("0") digit, only one to nine.
KeepKey verifies PIN screen
The PIN pattern on the KeepKey large screen (which is great advantage!) changes every time you unlock it, and numbers are not shown over the web (only dots). All actions on the web must be approved by one single button on the device it self and all the details shown very nicely!
Receiving Bitcoin on KeepKey - address and QR shown (and can be scanned)
KeepKey implemented a great privacy feature that each successful transaction changes the wallet's address. On the other, once you got the transaction done you can't see this address anywhere again.
Some of the disadvantages that made me move to the BitBox02, are:
  1. The lack of USB-C adoption. It was a bit frustrating looking for an adapter every time I wanted to connect it to my MacBook, which has USB-C ports only.
  2. Mobility isn't available, as you must use the ShapeShift platform (no native desktop program nor mobile application is available)
  3. Chrome is the only supported browser and the platform can't be used by any other.
  4. Not sure about the build quality. When I first opened the box, the upper half of the device wasn't parallel to the bottom, made me a bit nervous
  5. Not supported bech32!
  6. Lead to KYC
MicroUSB connector and edgy built
Overall, I find the KeepKey a great wallet, decently for this low price and the platform as some nice features. KeepKey has a Chrome extension which will be removed by June of this year, as the Google removes Chrome App Store.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BitBox02 Multi edition
So, after the downsides of the KeepKey I was waiting for my wallet of choice, the BitBox02 which was built by the Shift Cryptosecurity, it is much smaller device but I find it more useful and much easier to use everyday.
The BitBox02 has two types, one for Bitcoin only and one for Bitcoin and some others. Currently not many coins supported, which isn't a great (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and some other ERC20).
Shift Cryptosecurity has some other type of threat model, it has no seal tape on the box to verify it's a legit unboxed wallet, as many manufacturers (including KeepKey) does; they actually vacuuming the box and make it almost impossible to cut it without notice. As for now, they working on new awesome feature called "Tep", a really innovative idea! watch the video, it's really great!
Inside the box there was a USB-C to USB-A adapter (awesome thing to provide!), extended USB-C cable, stickers, microSD card (soon to be explained why, but again, awesome they send it included) and the device it self.
Some of the advantages are:
  1. Native desktop program for MacOS, Windows and Linux
  2. Android application (hope for iOS soon as well), which is great for mobility
  3. Easy to use and guided through every step of the initialisation
  4. MicroSD card used to backup (not encrypted) the keys, another method for users, along with the 24 mnemonic passphrase. It's nice feature to have for those who aren't that technologically.
  5. Secure chip built-in the device
  6. Able to use with Electrum
BitBox02 has no buttons, it has a unique gesture touch sensors on it's sides and it used a slide, tap and hold gestures.
Supported low and capital letters along with all 0-9 digits
The device will wipe it self after 10 times of wrong password. Backup of the keys can be done by the microSD card or by the 24 words.
BitBoxApp, receiving address must be verified on the device
Verify on the device by single tap
Same as the KeepKey, the BitBox02 generates a new address each time you made a successful transaction, keeping the privacy in mind and focused. another nice feature to have is that the BitBox02 has U2F ability, which means websites like Google, Facebook, Twitter and else can be 2FA with a physical security key, a great way to secure accounts.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In my opinion, KeepKey is a great wallet but I liked the BitBox02 more, specially because of the mobility and the ease of use on any OS no need to download Chrome, although it's bit more expensive.

MW MYCO WEDNESDAY Inventory Update and GIVEAWAY! First 10 Orders Placed on the Site Get a FREE Special Syringe NOT Listed! Any Order Numbers Ending in 4, 1 or 5 (4/15) Will Also Receive a FREE Mystery Syringe! Welcome New Additions Roatan Honduras, Shooting Stars, and Ps. Serbica and Restocked PEU!

edit: USE COUPON CODES WHEN ORDERING AT www.millywyco.com PLEASE!! This is a discount for your benefit...take advantage of it! As usual, EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 5PM CST I will make a post with some NEW varieties, updated inventory on classic favorites, and hold a new promotion. God I love you guys!
Holy hell you guys are awesome!!! You all continue to amaze me with the amount of love and support I get every single day. When placing an order on the site, the notes and feedback you guys give always make me smile :) Thankfully, I've been able to fine tune my flow of fulfilling orders and restocking inventory to ensure all orders go out accurate and on time. However, this past week has yet again presented it's own set of challenges. USPS has been struggling lately with on time deliveries and tracking updates. I'm told that many postal employees have been going on strike. These are people on the front lines of all this madness, and have constant face to face interaction with the public. They do not get any kind of hazard/COVID pay for this, and if they do contract the virus, they are sent home without pay (what the hell, right?!?!). Along with this, the USPS is facing a possible shutdown very soon if they don't get federal funding. Because of this, some new employees (bless their hearts) are doing their very best to make sure things run smoothly, but tracking sometimes doesn't update until it's out for delivery, if at all, and in some cases, trucks are being sent to the wrong locations, causing delays by up to 3-5 days. Please note that when you get a shipping confirmation email from me, your order has indeed shipped. Please be patient with the postal service in receiving your order and waiting for updates. By my good friends at the post office (they know me well), I'm told the best thing anyone can do is to buy a book of stamps and keep them going! Show your local USPS employees some love in these trying times!
I have TWO giveaways running right now! For the first ten orders that come through the site after this post (order numbers 10732-10741), you will receive a free special syringe that is not listed and not available to everyone!
Additionally, for this 4/15 update, ALL orders who's order number ends in 4, 1 or 5 will also get this special exclusive syringe :) When your order is complete, you will see your order number and are automatically included in the giveaway, no coupon code needed! This syringe will remain a mystery until you unbox your order, though it will be labeled which variety and the date it was made as usual.
The varieties listed on this post are the varieties I have available at 5PM CST on Wednesday, April 15. I will not be updating this post through the week, but inventory on the site will always be up to date.
I've been working non-stop to restock and be able to share with the masses, and thanks to my dear friend Dr. Rot, I've had approximately a shit ton of help with the website. Instead of learning as I go and spending hours trying to change a layout, add a page and whatnot, I was able to spend that precious time this week in the lab to be sure everyone gets a chance at the varieties they love. He has helped me out tremendously, and will continue to make improvements to the site. ALL FEEDBACK IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! If there's something you'd like to see on the site, or any ways to improve, I'm all ears. Please send me a message on Reddit, chat on the website, or email :)
UPDATES: I've added a few new regular cubensis varieties to the site! By popular demand, Roatan Honduran, Shooting Stars, Great White Monster and Avery x Lizard King have been added, while I also restocked some varieties that were previously posted but sold out. I'm also very excited to announce the addition of a NEW EXOTIC, offered for $15 each alone, or $10 if adding to a 5/$30 cubensis pack! Ps. Serbica is the recent exotic addition, while I restocked Cyans, Azures, Aztecorum, Allenii, Subaeruninosa, and PENIS ENVY UNCUT!!!!!!
PLEASE USE COUPON CODES ON www.millywyco.com FOR DISCOUNTS!! For a while, some of the coupon codes were not working, and I didn't have the time available to devote to fixing the issue. All should be working now. Please see below:
2PACK - $20 for two cubensis syringes
5PACK - Classic and most popular $30 dealio for 5 cubensis varieties
NEEDMORE - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 1 exotic add-on for $10...total $40
NEEDMORE2 - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 2 exotic add-ons for $20...total $50
NEEDMORE3 - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 3 exotic add-ons for $30...total $60
...and so on. Currently, this is setup for up to 5 exotic add-ons. If you have an order that does not meet these codes, such as adding on more than 5 exotics, getting 7 cubensis varieties, etc. please send me a message and I will build you a coupon code to match your order in a timely manner.
WEBSITE ADDITIONS - Calendar added! This is still a work in progress, but here you'll find any contests, promotions, giveaways, and upcoming varieties to look out for! When a variety runs out, I'll post on the calendar which day and time you'll be able to see them restocked. We've also added a fun countdown ticker till the next restock so you can get excited about some of the varieties coming up as I run out.
Forum added! To encourage community involvement, we've added a forum section to answer some common questions and help out in the best way we can. PLEASE NOTE the same rules apply on the website as do here on Reddit. That means no discussion of anything cultivation related! Keep it clean :)
News and Updates page added! More content will be coming soon on these pages, and I'm suuuuper excited to be able to FINALLY implement some ideas I've had for a long time that I think you'll really like as well :)
SHIPPING UPDATE - ALL ORDERS PLACED BY MIDNIGHT will ship out first thing in the AM. My mail is picked up at 10AM every day, so I need to have these ready the night before. I really didn't have a problem running to the post office once a day as my excuse to get out of the house for "essential business", but me being a diabetic has much of my family and friends worried that this virus won't think twice about taking me out. In an effort to reduce stress and anxiety (which surely weakens immune system), I will be shipping from home for the duration of quarantine. Thank you for understanding.
Much of the satisfaction I get throughout my day comes from YOU GUYS (and gals), from the positive encouragement, connections made and regular pleasant conversation. Keep sharing the recent positivity in your life, the cat facts, and warmth that's spread through this community. Be persistent, never give up and never stop learning!! I LOVE YOU ALL DEARLY <3
Please check out the updated list of inventory below. I'll make a post when I am able to get my hands on some other requested varieties, and as always, I accept trades! Feel free to send me a message if you have a request for something I do not have in stock. My wish list is your wish list! I'm sure we band together and find it if we try.
Shipping in US only at the moment, not available to ID, GA, or CA (yes, really)
Spore syringes are for microscopy use only
Any reference to cultivation will exclude you from placing an order and we may never speak again. I want to talk to you. Don't do it!
There are no exceptions to these rules. You have been warned.
PAYMENT METHODS ACCEPTED: Major Credit/Debit cards, Zelle, Cash App, Venmo, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Bitcoin and Amazon gift cards
PayPal is NOT available to me at this time.
Also, I am the fee master! I get charged fees left and right that I don't pass on to you from shipping and third party payments. If you'd like to throw me a tip, however much it may be, I'd love you forever and it really does make a difference! These types of people have allowed me to share with some who are less fortunate. On the other hand, if times are tough for you right now, let's talk about it!
ALL PRICES INCLUDE USPS SHIPPING WITH TRACKING!! I COVER ALL STANDARD SHIPPING COSTS.
Please add an additional $5 to any order if you prefer 2-3 day tracked Priority Mail shipping. (90% of my Priority Mail shipments are 2 day. Occasionally, rural areas are 3 day)
1 syringe for $15
2 syringes for $20
5 syringes for $30
Golden Teacher (LIMITED TO 2 PER ORDER!)
A classic variety for any mycologist. Pretty standard, easy to work with and almost everyone starts here. Can't go wrong with GT! They go fassst. Currently limited to 2 per order with mix-n-match due to extreme popularity.
Albino A+ (AA+)
While "true" albino's are just a mutation, this variety gets it's name from the leucistic trait of having less pigment than other varieties, appearing completely white when mature. One of the all time most popular varieties I've had the pleasure of offering!
Amazonian
Originating from the Amazon rain forest, this variety is known to produce large,dense fruits in the wild, and certainly an interesting study under the scope :)
Avery x Lizard King
Ban Sa Phang Kha
Blue Meanie
This is the cubensis variety, not to be confused with Pan Cyan, the original Blue Meanie. One of my most popular varieties when it's in stock!
Costa Rican
Ecuadorian
F+
Fiji
Great White Monster
Honduran
Lizard King
Mazatapec
McKennaii
Origin unknown, but holds a special place in my heart, due to being named after the late Terrence McKenna <3
Mexican
NorMak
PES Amazon
With genetics from Pacific Exotica Spora (PES), this variety has a few stories to go along with it. Really interesting study if you care to look them up, but it was originally thought to be a cubensis/azurescens hybrid, accounting for the "A" in PESA. After much controversy, most identify this variety as Amazon or Amazonian.
PES Hawaiian
One of the wider caps in the species, PES (Pacific Exotica Spora) Hawaiian are uniquely pleasant to look at under the scope. One of the quickest movers on the slide, and easily one of my favorites to study!
Shooting Stars
Texas Orange Cap
Texas Yellow Cap
Z-Strain
Much like Golden Teacher, but this variety seems to have some great positive characteristics that sets it aside. Very fast and aggressive under the scope, this one will not disappoint!
THE FOLLOWING EXOTICS ARE NOT PART OF THE 5/$30 MIX-n-MATCH DEALIO, but can be added to the 5/$30 pack for $10 as an add-on, or $15 each by themselves. These are NOT cubensis, and NOT recommended for beginners. USE COUPON CODE "NEEDMORE" on www.millywyco.com to add ONE EXOTIC on to a 5 pack. Want 2 Exotics? Use code NEEDMORE2 or NEEDMORE3 for 3, etc. Currently this is setup to add a maximum of 5 exotics....if you need more, please message me and I'll create a unique coupon code to enter for your order :)
****Penis Envy #6 (PE6)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.
****Penis Envy Uncut (PEU)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.
****Ps. Azurescens***\*
****Ps. Aztecorum***\*
****Ps. Allenii***\*
****Ps. Mexicana Tampanensis***\*
****Ps. Ovoideocystidiata***\*
****Ps. Serbica***\*
****Panaeolus Cambodginiensis-SANDOZ***\*
****Panaeolus Cyanescens***\*
All syringes are 12cc/mL and come capped with a sterile tip cap, and also include an 18ga blunt tip needle and alcohol pads. Syringes are made in a lab grade environment and the utmost care and attention is the highest priority to be sure they are sterile. Anything exposed to an open air environment is subject to contamination, but I take every precaution possible to minimize this risk. I cannot "guarantee" they are 100% sterile, but I can guarantee that if you have an issue, I will make it right. I really do love to help, and if something happens, I'd like to know about it so I can fix the issue instead of you getting frustrated or giving up!
To ensure equal quantity of spores in each syringe, and for adequate suspension of the spores in the solution, I use a magnetic stir plate. Very often, this does such a good job of breaking up clumps of spores that it will appear to be sparse. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE! There are still a TON of spores in each syringe, even if you can't see them individually (though most of my syringes appear to have a very good amount of visible spores...even with my horrible eyesight!). You can compare and contrast to see the blackish/purple tint to ensure every syringe is packed with spores. If a spore clump forms during transportation, simply give it a good flick with your finger and vigorously shake to break it up or free it from clinging to the wall of the syringe before examining.
Syringes ship in individual bags clearly labeled as to specific variety and born on date, bubble wrapped and shipped through USPS tracked shipping (discreet) within 24 hours of payment. I send tracking info soon after payment and give updates along the (super quick) way.
Please PM me with order details, including state shipping to, payment method, and the selected syringes for your order. Any messages referring to spores being used for anything other than microscopy use will be ignored. Don't do it.
THANK YOU ALL so much again for your continued support!! I appreciate it more than you know! MUSH LOVE
P.S. In no way am I trying to be an impostor. I AM NOT WILLY MYCO. I chose this u/ a while back as sort of a play on words and tribute to a legend most of us recognize, long before I became a spore vendor. I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pass off as him, though I do strive for his level of excellence and dedication to the craft! I appreciate all of the kind words, though, from people saying they learned from "my" videos. I wish I could pass on those notes to RR himself.
Cheers and MUSH LOVE!

I cannot "guarantee" they are 100% sterile, but I can guarantee that if you have an issue, I will make it right. I really do love to help, and if something happens, I'd like to know about it so I can fix the issue instead of you getting frustrated or giving up!
To ensure equal quantity of spores in each syringe, and for adequate suspension of the spores in the solution, I use a magnetic stir plate. Very often, this does such a good job of breaking up clumps of spores that it will appear to be sparse. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE! There are still a TON of spores in each syringe, even if you can't see them individually (though most of my syringes appear to have a very good amount of visible spores...even with my horrible eyesight!). You can compare and contrast to see the blackish/purple tint to ensure every syringe is packed with spores. If a spore clump forms during transportation, simply give it a good flick with your finger and vigorously shake to break it up or free it from clinging to the wall of the syringe before examining.
Syringes ship in individual bags clearly labeled as to specific variety and born on date, bubble wrapped and shipped through USPS tracked shipping (discreet) within 24 hours of payment. I send tracking info soon after payment and give updates along the (super quick) way.
Please PM me with order details, including state shipping to, payment method, and the selected syringes for your order. Any messages referring to spores being used for anything other than microscopy use will be ignored. Don't do it.
THANK YOU ALL so much again for your continued support!! I appreciate it more than you know! MUSH LOVE
P.S. In no way am I trying to be an impostor. I AM NOT WILLY MYCO. I chose this u/ a while back as sort of a play on words and tribute to a legend most of us recognize, long before I became a spore vendor. I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pass off as him, though I do strive for his level of excellence and dedication to the craft! I appreciate all of the kind words, though, from people saying they learned from "my" videos. I wish I could pass on those notes to RR himself.
Cheers and MUSH LOVE!

MW MYCO WEDNESDAY Inventory Update and GIVEAWAY! First 10 Orders Placed on the Site Get a FREE Special Syringe NOT Listed! Any Order Numbers Ending in 4, 1 or 5 (4/15) Will Also Receive a FREE Mystery Syringe! Welcome New Additions Roatan Honduras, Shooting Stars, and Ps. Serbica and Restocked PEU!

edit: USE COUPON CODES WHEN ORDERING AT www.millywyco.com PLEASE!! This is a discount for your benefit...take advantage of it! As usual, EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 5PM CST I will make a post with some NEW varieties, updated inventory on classic favorites, and hold a new promotion. God I love you guys!
Holy hell you guys are awesome!!! You all continue to amaze me with the amount of love and support I get every single day. When placing an order on the site, the notes and feedback you guys give always make me smile :) Thankfully, I've been able to fine tune my flow of fulfilling orders and restocking inventory to ensure all orders go out accurate and on time. However, this past week has yet again presented it's own set of challenges. USPS has been struggling lately with on time deliveries and tracking updates. I'm told that many postal employees have been going on strike. These are people on the front lines of all this madness, and have constant face to face interaction with the public. They do not get any kind of hazard/COVID pay for this, and if they do contract the virus, they are sent home without pay (what the hell, right?!?!). Along with this, the USPS is facing a possible shutdown very soon if they don't get federal funding. Because of this, some new employees (bless their hearts) are doing their very best to make sure things run smoothly, but tracking sometimes doesn't update until it's out for delivery, if at all, and in some cases, trucks are being sent to the wrong locations, causing delays by up to 3-5 days. Please note that when you get a shipping confirmation email from me, your order has indeed shipped. Please be patient with the postal service in receiving your order and waiting for updates. By my good friends at the post office (they know me well), I'm told the best thing anyone can do is to buy a book of stamps and keep them going! Show your local USPS employees some love in these trying times!
I have TWO giveaways running right now! For the first ten orders that come through the site after this post (order numbers 10732-10741), you will receive a free special syringe that is not listed and not available to everyone!
Additionally, for this 4/15 update, ALL orders who's order number ends in 4, 1 or 5 will also get this special exclusive syringe :) When your order is complete, you will see your order number and are automatically included in the giveaway, no coupon code needed! This syringe will remain a mystery until you unbox your order, though it will be labeled which variety and the date it was made as usual.
The varieties listed on this post are the varieties I have available at 5PM CST on Wednesday, April 15. I will not be updating this post through the week, but inventory on the site will always be up to date.
I've been working non-stop to restock and be able to share with the masses, and thanks to my dear friend Dr. Rot, I've had approximately a shit ton of help with the website. Instead of learning as I go and spending hours trying to change a layout, add a page and whatnot, I was able to spend that precious time this week in the lab to be sure everyone gets a chance at the varieties they love. He has helped me out tremendously, and will continue to make improvements to the site. ALL FEEDBACK IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! If there's something you'd like to see on the site, or any ways to improve, I'm all ears. Please send me a message on Reddit, chat on the website, or email :)
UPDATES: I've added a few new regular cubensis varieties to the site! By popular demand, Roatan Honduran, Shooting Stars, Great White Monster and Avery x Lizard King have been added, while I also restocked some varieties that were previously posted but sold out. I'm also very excited to announce the addition of a NEW EXOTIC, offered for $15 each alone, or $10 if adding to a 5/$30 cubensis pack! Ps. Serbica is the recent exotic addition, while I restocked Cyans, Azures, Aztecorum, Allenii, Subaeruninosa, and PENIS ENVY UNCUT!!!!!!
PLEASE USE COUPON CODES ON www.millywyco.com FOR DISCOUNTS!! For a while, some of the coupon codes were not working, and I didn't have the time available to devote to fixing the issue. All should be working now. Please see below:
2PACK - $20 for two cubensis syringes
5PACK - Classic and most popular $30 dealio for 5 cubensis varieties
NEEDMORE - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 1 exotic add-on for $10...total $40
NEEDMORE2 - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 2 exotic add-ons for $20...total $50
NEEDMORE3 - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 3 exotic add-ons for $30...total $60
...and so on. Currently, this is setup for up to 5 exotic add-ons. If you have an order that does not meet these codes, such as adding on more than 5 exotics, getting 7 cubensis varieties, etc. please send me a message and I will build you a coupon code to match your order in a timely manner.
WEBSITE ADDITIONS - Calendar added! This is still a work in progress, but here you'll find any contests, promotions, giveaways, and upcoming varieties to look out for! When a variety runs out, I'll post on the calendar which day and time you'll be able to see them restocked. We've also added a fun countdown ticker till the next restock so you can get excited about some of the varieties coming up as I run out.
Forum added! To encourage community involvement, we've added a forum section to answer some common questions and help out in the best way we can. PLEASE NOTE the same rules apply on the website as do here on Reddit. That means no discussion of anything cultivation related! Keep it clean :)
News and Updates page added! More content will be coming soon on these pages, and I'm suuuuper excited to be able to FINALLY implement some ideas I've had for a long time that I think you'll really like as well :)
SHIPPING UPDATE - ALL ORDERS PLACED BY MIDNIGHT will ship out first thing in the AM. My mail is picked up at 10AM every day, so I need to have these ready the night before. I really didn't have a problem running to the post office once a day as my excuse to get out of the house for "essential business", but me being a diabetic has much of my family and friends worried that this virus won't think twice about taking me out. In an effort to reduce stress and anxiety (which surely weakens immune system), I will be shipping from home for the duration of quarantine. Thank you for understanding.
Much of the satisfaction I get throughout my day comes from YOU GUYS (and gals), from the positive encouragement, connections made and regular pleasant conversation. Keep sharing the recent positivity in your life, the cat facts, and warmth that's spread through this community. Be persistent, never give up and never stop learning!! I LOVE YOU ALL DEARLY <3
Please check out the updated list of inventory below. I'll make a post when I am able to get my hands on some other requested varieties, and as always, I accept trades! Feel free to send me a message if you have a request for something I do not have in stock. My wish list is your wish list! I'm sure we band together and find it if we try.
Shipping in US only at the moment, not available to ID, GA, or CA (yes, really)
Spore syringes are for microscopy use only
Any reference to cultivation will exclude you from placing an order and we may never speak again. I want to talk to you. Don't do it!
There are no exceptions to these rules. You have been warned.
PAYMENT METHODS ACCEPTED: Major Credit/Debit cards, Zelle, Cash App, Venmo, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Bitcoin and Amazon gift cards
PayPal is NOT available to me at this time.
Also, I am the fee master! I get charged fees left and right that I don't pass on to you from shipping and third party payments. If you'd like to throw me a tip, however much it may be, I'd love you forever and it really does make a difference! These types of people have allowed me to share with some who are less fortunate. On the other hand, if times are tough for you right now, let's talk about it!
ALL PRICES INCLUDE USPS SHIPPING WITH TRACKING!! I COVER ALL STANDARD SHIPPING COSTS.
Please add an additional $5 to any order if you prefer 2-3 day tracked Priority Mail shipping. (90% of my Priority Mail shipments are 2 day. Occasionally, rural areas are 3 day)
1 syringe for $15
2 syringes for $20
5 syringes for $30
Golden Teacher (LIMITED TO 2 PER ORDER!)
A classic variety for any mycologist. Pretty standard, easy to work with and almost everyone starts here. Can't go wrong with GT! They go fassst. Currently limited to 2 per order with mix-n-match due to extreme popularity.
Albino A+ (AA+)
While "true" albino's are just a mutation, this variety gets it's name from the leucistic trait of having less pigment than other varieties, appearing completely white when mature. One of the all time most popular varieties I've had the pleasure of offering!
Amazonian
Originating from the Amazon rain forest, this variety is known to produce large,dense fruits in the wild, and certainly an interesting study under the scope :)
Avery x Lizard King
Ban Sa Phang Kha
Blue Meanie
This is the cubensis variety, not to be confused with Pan Cyan, the original Blue Meanie. One of my most popular varieties when it's in stock!
Costa Rican
Ecuadorian
F+
Fiji
Great White Monster
Honduran
Lizard King
Mazatapec
McKennaii
Origin unknown, but holds a special place in my heart, due to being named after the late Terrence McKenna <3
Mexican
NorMak
PES Amazon
With genetics from Pacific Exotica Spora (PES), this variety has a few stories to go along with it. Really interesting study if you care to look them up, but it was originally thought to be a cubensis/azurescens hybrid, accounting for the "A" in PESA. After much controversy, most identify this variety as Amazon or Amazonian.
PES Hawaiian
One of the wider caps in the species, PES (Pacific Exotica Spora) Hawaiian are uniquely pleasant to look at under the scope. One of the quickest movers on the slide, and easily one of my favorites to study!
Shooting Stars
Texas Orange Cap
Texas Yellow Cap
Z-Strain
Much like Golden Teacher, but this variety seems to have some great positive characteristics that sets it aside. Very fast and aggressive under the scope, this one will not disappoint!
THE FOLLOWING EXOTICS ARE NOT PART OF THE 5/$30 MIX-n-MATCH DEALIO, but can be added to the 5/$30 pack for $10 as an add-on, or $15 each by themselves. These are NOT cubensis, and NOT recommended for beginners. USE COUPON CODE "NEEDMORE" on www.millywyco.com to add ONE EXOTIC on to a 5 pack. Want 2 Exotics? Use code NEEDMORE2 or NEEDMORE3 for 3, etc. Currently this is setup to add a maximum of 5 exotics....if you need more, please message me and I'll create a unique coupon code to enter for your order :)
****Penis Envy #6 (PE6)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.
****Penis Envy Uncut (PEU)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.
****Ps. Azurescens***\*
****Ps. Aztecorum***\*
****Ps. Allenii***\*
****Ps. Mexicana Tampanensis***\*
****Ps. Ovoideocystidiata***\*
****Ps. Serbica***\*
****Panaeolus Cambodginiensis-SANDOZ***\*
****Panaeolus Cyanescens***\*
All syringes are 12cc/mL and come capped with a sterile tip cap, and also include an 18ga blunt tip needle and alcohol pads. Syringes are made in a lab grade environment and the utmost care and attention is the highest priority to be sure they are sterile. Anything exposed to an open air environment is subject to contamination, but I take every precaution possible to minimize this risk.

I Sell Mystery Boxes on the Deep Web

I started doing it on a whim. My brother has an unhealthy obsession with online vloggers. I can barely go a day without him linking me to a video of someone taking part in some sort of challenge or performing some social experiment. So, when the whole deep-web-mystery-box trend started, I was one of the first to know. My brother must have sent me dozens of videos of annoying preteens opening up boxes filled with junk that they tried to pass off as creepy and sinister.
When my brother asked me for my opinion, I told him that it combined all the boredom of an unboxing video with all the stupidity of the tide pod challenge. I added that most of them were probably making the boxes themselves. Even I could do it. And that’s when the wheels started turning. A quick search confirmed that this was a growing trend, with hundreds of people claiming to have opened up boxes containing everything from drugs to murder weapons to mysterious flash drives. Some vloggers even claimed that they had spent thousands of dollars on a single mystery box. Those were obviously fake, but what about the rest? Were there really people out there who would spend at least a hundred dollars for the chance to go viral? I bet that they would and, unfortunately, I was right.
Putting the boxes together was easier than expected. I had some cardboard boxes stuffed in my closet that turned out to be the perfect size for the job. Some rusty screwdrivers proved perfect as my murder weapons. My desk drawer offered up a surprising number of old flash drives that I made mystery-box-ready by filling them with as many creepy videos as I could download. Finally, some expired sinus tablets provided me with some mysterious deep web drugs once I had peeled the labels off.
Getting the website set up on the deep web was a little harder, but you can find an online tutorial for anything these days. By the time I was ready to go to bed, I was the proud owner of the Emporium of Mysteries. For fifty dollars worth of bitcoin, anyone could be the proud owner of a mystery box. Sure, the site looked like it had come straight out of the early 90s, but it was good enough. I was in business.
The next morning I went looking for customers. Fortunately, my brother's messages had made me very familiar with the online vlogging community. I messaged a few of the smaller channels with some burner accounts I made and left a few comments on their latest videos.
You should do a deep web unboxing video!
You know what would be really cool? Unboxing something from the deep web. I’d bet you’d get millions of views!
I heard about this new place on the deep web called the Emporium of Mysteries. They sell mystery boxes there. You should check them out.
Then all I had to do was sit back and wait. By the end of the day, I had six purchases. Not much all put together, but enough to help put food on the table. By the end of the afternoon, I had the boxes ready to ship. I wasn’t looking to scam these people after all. They got to make their stupid videos, and I got to eat. Everybody was happy.
I sold a few more over the next few weeks, but eventually, interest died down. Life went on. My brother sent me more stupid videos, and I gradually forgot about my time as a deep web merchant. Until last Friday. When I got home from work there was a package waiting for me outside my apartment door. When I picked it up and examined it, I realized that it was one of my mystery boxes. It looked like I had an unhappy customer, but it wasn’t like they were getting their money back. I took it inside and opened it up. It was empty, save for a flash drive that I didn’t recognize.
I was curious what was on it, but I wasn’t about to let some disgruntled hacker infect my computer, so I dug out an old laptop that I hardly used anymore and plugged it in. It was full of pictures. Pictures of my hometown; of my apartment; of me. Whoever sent me this had been following me, had been inside my home. Staring at those pictures I started to realize just how out of my depth I was.
You see not everything you find on the deep web is fake. There are some people out there who do sell real mystery boxes. And they are tired of scammers like me taking away from their profits. Thankfully, they are very generous people and want to give me a second chance. So, I am pleased to announce that the Emporium of Mysteries is under new management. Now, for the same low price, you will receive a genuine mystery box. It will include a special tool from my new partner’s personal collection, along with a video instructing you in its use, co-starring myself. The body part or organ extracted during the video will also be included as a special memento. Supplies are limited, so search us out on the deep web as soon as possible. We look forward to your business.

Most Morbid Dark Web Mystery Box Unboxing

I have a very disturbing story to tell you. In the past I had made a hobby of posting deep web mystery box openings on my web channel. I now refuse to ever do them again. Mind you, I know that some of these box openings are faked. I can assure you mine was definitely not.

If you don‘t already know what a mystery box is. I’ll clue you in... It is simply a box that you purchase with bitcoin that someone stuffs with God knows what. You get the pleasure of being creeped out by opening it. You never know what will be inside. That’s the beauty of it. If you want to call it that. A few places online have them, but if you play on the dark web, there are no rules.

I have received broken dolls, old pictures of family members with fake blood smeared around them, (hopefully fake blood) stuffed animals, ripped woman’s lingerie, medical supplies, tarot cards, a rat skull. Anything scary, silly or macabre goes.

The scary thing is you don’t know who is sending you the box or what’s inside so you better have a damn good pair of gloves. A really thick pair. One time I made the mistake by reaching my hand into my first mystery box and getting a sticky glue like substance all over my arm. What a mess! It had leaked out of a bottle. I still don’t know what the hell it was, but it didn’t have a smell. I washed my hands pretty good after that. Hopefully nothing harmful.

I will not to reveal the exact website on the dark web I was purchasing my boxes from, but they have taken it down since this incident. I can only reveal that many people were bidding on this one particular box. It had to be good, so I thought.

So I took the chance. Hoping to get something interesting. I was almost out bidded by one user but I fought to the finish.This baby was officially mine. "Yes" I exclaimed as I verified my address feeling satisfied. I only used my post office box for safety reasons. Rule #1 Never ever use your home address. It’s not safe. There are crazy people out there.

It took at least 3 weeks for the box to arrive and I was super stoked to pick it up. It was a medium-sized normal looking cardboard box sealed tightly with packing tape. Not very heavy and it felt pretty light. I had hoped I didn’t get screwed, but I was curious to why this box had cost so much and why everyone wanted it. Soon I would find out..

When I arrived home that Friday evening I set up my web cam and something made me hesitate. I had a weird feeling about this particular box. Maybe my intuition was trying to tell me something. Instead I ignored it, grabbed my big metal scissors and set my area up.

I always put a garbage bag or sheet down on my kitchen table before unboxing because no telling where the hell the box came from or what might leak out. I slipped on my thick rubber gloves, observing them for any leaks or holes. I was good to go. Flipping on the webcam I began my video.

“It’s time for another unboxing folks! This is the big one you’ve been waiting for and I hope you get a thrill out of this as much as I do. I have been waiting for this box for 3 weeks it is finally here! It’s not very heavy as you can see. I wonder what’s inside?” I make sure to shake the box for the camera to show the lightness.

I began to cut the tape with my big blue scissors and anticipated what could be inside. I carefully open the cardboard flaps and see shredded newspaper. Little bitty bits of newspaper that someone personally looked to have hand tore into shreds. Riffling through I dig deeper to the bottom and feel something squishy.

I pull it out. It is a squared looking black garbage bag sealed with gray duct tape. Something is wrapped inside, but an odd smell is coming from the garbage bag.

A slight rotten odor permeates the air and I gag. I hope this isn’t something gross. Obviously it is. I nearly forget I am on camera. I began to sweat and something makes me very uncomfortable. But I keep going with my video. I pull up on the tape and open the garbage bag carefully, trying to not damage the goods inside.

I reveal a big white sealed zip-lock bag with a blue and white looking plaid material inside that looks to be a shirt. I smell the smell again and this time it's even worse. My natural reflex kicks in and the bag hits the floor. I gag. “Yuck!”

A sweet odorous smell fills my nostrils. You know the kind when a rat dies in the wall and decomposition takes place. The smell lingers for weeks. Sort of like that smell. But this was 10 times worse. I pick up the bag again and force myself to continue.

Written on the zip-lock bag in black marker are the words “SMELL OF DEATH” in all capital letters. What the hell? I stop the camera and realize maybe I shouldn’t put this on video. If there is something really gross in here or criminal, I don‘t need to be putting it on camera for the world to see. In the back of my mind I’ve always known the possibility of playing games with strangers. Some can turn out to be psycho. It’s a risk you take playing the mystery box game.

I quickly hurl the zip-lock bag out the front door. The pattern of throwing the bag around is becoming all to familiar. I spray a can of Lysol spray all over the room. Especially on the table figuring it’s just a stupid prank. I sit down for a moment trying to gain my composure and not be a wuss. I think back to the packages I’ve received over the past months. The glorious mystery boxes. None of them ever smelled like this.

Deciding to brave it up I decide I will march outside and open the bag. "There must be something else in that bag other than the plaid shirt" I think to myself. I mean I paid a good bit for this box.

I go outside and walk up to the bag holding my breath. I pull open the seal and shake the shirt out of the bag. It plops to the ground looking to be badly stained with fluids. Body fluids? Maybe I’m letting my imagination get the best of me.I see what looks to be a cassette tape wrapped in clear plastic sticking out of the front pocket. I quickly grab this with my gloves and step back. Waaay Back!

The shirt reeks. I gag and almost vomit. I try to keep a long distance between the shirt and I. I open the plastic wrapped film around the cassette tape. I don’t really enjoy touching it not even with my gloves. Written in the same permanent marker are the words “My Friend”

So whoever sent this mystery box must have taken an old-fashioned approach. I go into the garage and find my old boom box with a cassette player praying it still works. I usually plug it up and listen to the radio while working on projects. I put the tape in. I press play.

It makes a slight clicking noise. Hopefully, this works. Suddenly, I hear a crackly mans voice speaking with a slight southern drawl.

“I hope you are happy with your mystery box. This was a rare find and I’m so happy I get to share this with you. You see, a homeless man had died in the woods nearby my house. He was in a very desolate place where no one would look for him. I didn’t report it. Instead, I became a bit curious.” I probably shouldn‘t have, but oh well.

“I looked at his body each day. He must have had to been dead for over 5 days because I saw the bloody foam coming out of his mouth and nose. He smelled horrible. I think he even might have peed himself. I think that happens when you die. You lose your bodily functions.”

" You want to know what he was wearing? He was wearing a plaid shirt the one I sent you. He had on some old army looking pants and had long scraggly grey hair and a beard. I felt sorry for him and every day I went out to talk to him. He wasn’t dead to me even though he never talked back. He was stiff to the touch. He even looked to be smiling once like he might have heard me. I knew then he and I would be good friends. "

“I told him my life story of growing up not having a father and my step-dad who used to beat me with the belt. All over my body leaving big giant red whelps. I told him about my little brother Mikey who had died a month after he was born. He drowned in the bathtub. Momma blamed me for it and sent me to the home for bad boys. I was just trying to give him a bath. I filled the tub up and put him in. I was 10 years old.”

I wanted to hit stop on the cassette tape. Was all of this for real? Am I listening to the ramblings of a demented madman. I hit play and continued to listen.“I went back in to the woods many days later. And I saw that his body was turning green. I took a few pictures with a Polaroid of my new friend but did not dare to send them to you. I even took one of us together. I tried to pry open his eyes for the picture but they were too mushy and it didn't work.

I didn’t want my observations to be found out. I even brought him a blanket one night because it got real cold. He looked to be getting in worse shape each day and I knew I had to tell someone and so I took my friend’s shirt. I needed something to remember him by. My special friend.“

"I left and told him goodbye and thanks for listening to me and being a good friend. A few days later his body was found by local hunters and it was all over the news.”" I loved the way his shirt smelled. I couldn’t stop smelling it. So I thought I should share it with somebody. You like the smell I hope? "

”Okay well I have to go now. Don’t feel bad for taking my friend’s shirt. I will probably get another one soon. Bye”

I stopped the tape in disgust. It was the most morbid thing I had ever heard.

I messaged one of my good friends to come over and check everything out. He was a bit surprised after listening to the tape and gave one of his buddies a call who is a deputy in our little town. The deputy found it very disturbing and didn‘t think it was a joke. The man on the tape sounded sick.

Unfortunately, no action could be taken because it would be impossible to find the exact location the package came from. If I discovered actual human remains in the box then law enforcement could step in. There was no evidence of a crime committed.

The strange thing was the website was taken down not long after this happened. I stopped buying mystery boxes from the deep web after that. It was a very disturbing experience.

13 Months of ADOPTION! -- NANO accepted here! (10)

Hi everyone,
Until May 2018 I posted this on a regular basis since the adoption rate was high. Sometimes we had several new entries per day. Then adoption slowed down and also private work slowed me down.
Also, USE NANO, https://usenano.org appeared and took over some of the work.
usenano.org's listings do not fully match this list and vice versa. Both of us would need to invest some work in order to provide a full list. ;-) -- Both lists together should provide a good overview.
Also: A few weeks ago BrainBlocks reported about 2000 merchants using BrainBlocks. In case they are reading here, please let us know.
This said, I am re-publishing The Reddit NANO Directory
Adoption is crucial! Adoption is king!
ATTENTION: The new Reddit design has screwed up the correct counting in here.
If you switch to the old Reddit design, you will realize, that I am able to count from 1 to over 130.
Dear online merchants,
Please state visibly that you accept NANO and I will be glad to link you here. As a customer I would like to learn about this payment option before having worked my way through to checkout. At the same time this is a great opportunity to advertise NANO as a currency ... on more than 130 sites so far!
Examples: 01, 02, 03, 04.
