Hey, I'm Mario!

That's me

I'm a libertarian (I also like to use a term "anarchist"), Bitcoin enthusiast and a hacker.

Not a "computer hacker" (though I've been doing some IT security related stuff as a kid), but "the system" one instead.

Every time I stumble upon a new service, environment or anything that has human nature involved (which is a failure by definition) I'm not entirely happy if I can't game it.

How it all started

This obsession with finding ways to fuck with the system started when I was a kid. I was always interested in disassembling stuff I got as gifts just to find out how it works and possibly make it work more efficiently than intended (I kept breaking it instead). 

Years later, it was 2012 I think, my hatred towards governments reached the point where I knew I had to get off the system. Using loopholes in laws, decentralized systems (such as Bitcoin and the blockchain) and encrypted technologies I'm truly able to enjoy my freedom without distractions of daily life.

When my life changed

Once I kind of escaped the madness we are born into, it was a no-brainer from there. I quit my IT job in the largest bank in Slovakia, "redeemed" as much money the government stole from me as I possibly could and moved to Taiwan.

Because I don't hold a resident status in any country (though Slovak bureaus think otherwise), I'm forced to travel every 3 months in and out of Taiwan. This obviously costs lot of money, or so it seems. As a result I delved into travel hacking to keep my travel cost as low as possible.

Also, being jobless and possibly running out of savings has motivated me to look for alternative ways to support myself without investing too much time. I absolutely love East Asia and my Bitcoin related investments allow me to live here indefinitely.

As one of my friends says - "Living the dream, man."

How my site will help you

I acknowledge there were many people that contributed in shaping me into who I am and helped me in some ways to get where I am. I feel incredibly thankful for the life I live, and now it's time to pass it on.

On this website, you'll find useful information that will hopefully make your life a tad easier. I will give you tips on how to travel cheaply, how to invest and create passive incomes, how to use decentralized technologies such as Bitcoin and blockchain and all kinds of system hacks that I stumbled upon.

I will also rant from time to time too, and post random travel stories. Oh and I swear a lot so if you don't like it, well fuck you :)
