For an existing client, I negotiated a project fee rather than going W2, half up front, half upon completion, on a 30-day bid. At both milestones, the client repeatedly kicked-back my invoices for additional details to be added and re-reviewed, and essentially got away with turning what should have been a NET 7 payment plan into something closer to NET 45. They also had me work through the scheduled 2-week downtime between phases and are now waffling at paying any overages or overtime. FML.

I love the use case for BTC, but the maximalists have almost driven me away with their cult like attitude and fear mongering. Literally telling people to move BTC off coinbase because “rug pulls are coming soon” and “just wait for your BTC to disappear”. I mean c’mon, if a publicly traded company pulls shit like this, we are talking federal prison. It’s laughable how far these folks are down a rabbit hole.
