Bangkok Daily Life
One of the first things we always take care of when arriving in a new country is getting a sim card. I'm trying to find a global option that would work well for perpetual traveling, but so far, I haven't found a good solution. Changing the SIM card in every country is not convenient, especially because many mobile apps have authentication through the phone number. I tried Google FI and The OneSimCard but was not entirely happy with either of them.
Nevertheless, until we find our way, we use True Move SIM in Thailand. It works great, and they have good packages. It comes with a mobile app, where you can monitor your data and top up your credits. We recommend it if you come to Thailand.
We like to get the SIM card already at the airport, even though it can be a bit more expensive, but it just pays off with the convenience of having data when you arrive in a new country.
What we are working on
We are working on a new educational sequence on how to start with cryptos. It will come in a series of 7-daily emails, where we will share the essential lessons on cryptos that will help you dive into the topic. We'll keep you posted as soon as we go live with it. We hope you will like it.
I'm also of course still working on the New World Guardians https://newworldguardians.com/, specifically on spreading the word, growing the community and making collaboration with other projects we love.

Traveling, what's next?
We spent time on booking platforms and got some apartments for the upcoming months. Our next destination in October will be two weeks in Hua Hin, in Prachuap Khiri Khan province. It's about a 4-5 train drive south from Bangkok, and it's one of the top tourist destinations of Thailand for its great seaside, mountains, markets, temples, and due to proximity to Bangkok.
One of the attractions in Hua Hin is the railway station, with stunning architecture that looks like something out of a Wes Anderson movie. Looking forward to the nice seaside escape from crazy and loud Bangkok.
I am currently listening.
I'm listening to Unfucking the Planet with Rez, a Spotify podcast episode and a great introduction to Regenerative Finance (ReFi) - a new crypto movement that uses the robust market mechanics of DeFi to combat climate change. In this episode, Rez explains the carbon credit market functions and how buying such credits funds climate projects in real life.
It's part of the Defire podcast that aims to make crypto more fun, engaging, and accessible for everyone. I recommend it if you are interested in this space.
Gadget of the week
This week we have to mention our friend in the lobby, a robotic barista who helps us start our day with a delicious coffee made from freshly grounded coffee beans. His name is Tao Bin. ☕️
Besides different types of coffees, you can also select from a wide range of protein shakes, sodas, smoothies, teas, and much more. I think it's a brilliant idea and a great replacement for the old-fashioned (generic) coffee machines.
