ETH to Bitfinex using Smart Contracts

Do not send ETH to Bitfinex via Smart Contacts, if you’re unsure that your deposit will not be sent as part of an Ethereum contract execution, please find out for sure before sending your deposit. Most online wallets now use Smart Contacts, like Coins.ph. You can send to another local wallet first if you know how, then send it to your Bitfinex address.

But to be very sure, just use Bitcoin or other cryptos with no issues like Ethereum has.

I just found out about this after sending a few ETH from Coins.ph to Bitfinex. So be careful before sending any amount. Read, and re-read the latest instructions from Bitfinex. If you’re unsure about what you have read, then just don’t send anything.

Cryptocurrency is old, but it’s still cryptic to many, just like me.

UPDATE: I just contacted Bitfinex support and they said that they can manually process the transaction but it will take days to weeks. But hey! My ETH is not gone for good!

Single PHP file to send push notification via OneSignal REST API

Here’s a single php file where you can send a push notification using your OneSignal account via REST API. It’s simple and straightforward using the code example at OneSignal.com. This one is more complete as the code example is just the curl_setopt code. But what if you don’t know how to POST the code from your form to send a message using the basic example from OneSignal REST API? Example in this link are all just API parameters with basic code example, no actual code example with an HTML form that will work if you copy paste it.

Brand New Theme, because the old one sucks

I just switched to a brand new theme. Why? Because the old one sucks. It sucks because it’s old, it’s old that’s why it sucks. I’m currently in Singapore and everyone’s on quarantine right now. It seems that the COVID-19 Pandemic will not end this 2020.

Anyway, I’m now blogging using the WordPress app for Android. It’s easier looks sleek. I don’t like the block editor though as it has so many unnecessary features that I really don’t need. It groups my paragraphs into graphs which sucks.

There. If I press enter, it goes down to another blog. I’m not really used to this. I just love the basic editor where there are no other distractions.

Time will tell if I will tell in love with the new editor. But for now I’m annoyed how convenient is it. I mean, I’m annoyed of its convenience. The automation, autocorrect, stuff like that.

But… It’s convenient to just type using my voice. How? Google keyboard. I’m on Android 10, blogging via the WP app. You can just press the microphone icon located at the upper right side of the keyboard.

I’ll blog more often now by talking to my phone and pressing submit. How convenient! I’m annoyed, but I’m happy.

Gcash Verification Failed: Again, and again, and again

Have you ever tried verifying your account with Gcash and it keeps on failing? If you’re like me who attempted to fully verify a Gcash account, but the system doesn’t accept it, then hello! You’re not alone.

I repeatedly received an SMS saying that my Gcash verification failed. I have tried different valid IDs, but it keeps on failing.

A few years ago, my Gcash account was verified via KYC. Then last year, there’s a new verification method, and I was asked to verify again, then it went through.

This year, Gcash asked my to verify my account again after downgrading it to basic. Now I cannot get through. I have tried my passport, driver’s license, and UMID, but to no avail.

I wonder why it keeps on failing. I just received an SMS that Gcash will get in touch with me to guide me though my verification, but they didn’t reach out.

Feel free to leave a comment below if you encountered the same issue with your Gcash account.

Easily generate Let’s Encrypt SSL and install it to your WordPress blog in 30 seconds!


If you’ve noticed, my blog is now in https. Wohoooo! SSL activated after a looong time of being lazy to generate a free SSL and install it in my server. Other hosting providers such as SiteGround, Dreamhost, and other well-known hosting providers out there, providers their customers a one-click Let’s Encrypt SSL installation that you can do in just… one click! Yes, in a few seconds you have your SSL ready.

But what if your web host doesn’t provide a one click Let’s Encrypt installer? Just like mine? It’s still easy to install without going to the command line, using CertBot, blah blah blah (by following the instructions here https://letsencrypt.org/getting-started/). You can just generate an SSL at https://www.sslforfree.com/, verify that you own the domain by using manual verification, copy paste your CRT, KEY and CABUNDLE to your SSL/TLS manager inside your Cpanel, then you’re done.

PayPal to GCASH Philippine Peso cash-in disabled


If you wonder why the PHP currency in your PayPal account is not appearing anymore if you attempt to cash-in using the GCASH app via PayPal, then you’re not alone. I wondered too and found out that they disabled the PHP option. So if you have Philippine Pesos in your PayPal account, you cannot withdraw it instantly as of May 2018. You need to convert it to USD or any other foreign currency, except PHP! Yep, such. a. hassle. Globe is. Creating. Wonderful. Wonderful indeed.
