What is a VPN?

The term virtual private network (abbreviated VPN) describes any technology that can encapsulate and transmit network data, typically Internet Protocol data, over another network. Such a system enables users to access network resources that may otherwise be inaccessible from the public internet. VPNs are frequently used in the information technology sector to provide access to resources for users that are not physically connected to an organization’s network, such as telecommuting workers. VPNs are so named because they may be used to provide virtual (as opposed to physical) access to a private network. – Wikipedia. 

This was the original use for a VPN, office to office encrypted traffic. 

This is how VPNs are marketed to us today. 

This is the reality of what the marketing really is. 

A VPN makes it appear you are connecting from a different part of the world then you might actually be connecting from. 

What Will Your VPN Hide & From Whom?

Ordinarily, when you go online, your internet service provider (ISP) provides your connection. It keeps track of you via an IP address. Your web traffic passes through your ISP’s servers — they can log and see everything you do online. They handle your DNS requests, thus they know where you are visiting.

Your local ISP may seem trustworthy, but they could be handing your browsing history over to advertisers, the police or government, and other third-parties. Your ISP is also open to breaches: if they get hacked, your personal and private data could be compromised.

It has also been reported by – “All major ISPs denied selling or sharing their users’ browsing histories and other sensitive information in 2017, when they convinced Congress and President Trump to prevent implementation of broadband privacy rules. But since then, it has been reported that T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T were selling their mobile customers’ location information to third-party data brokers despite promising not to do so.”

This is especially worth considering if you regularly connect to public Wi-Fi networks. You never know who could be watching your internet traffic from the other side and potentially stealing from you — passwords, personal data, payment information, and even your identity. 

Present-day use of VPNs

According to GlobalWebIndex, Between 2016 and 2018, the number of VPN users worldwide increased by over four times. In countries like Thailand, Indonesia, and China, where internet usage is restricted and censored, as many as one in five internet users utilize a VPN.

Meanwhile, in the USA, UK, and Germany, the percentage of VPN users is lower but not insignificant, at around 5%.

One of the biggest drivers for VPN uptake in recent years has been the increasing demand for users to access geo-restricted content. For instance, video streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube make specific videos only available in certain countries. Modern VPNs allow you to encrypt your IP so that it seems you are browsing from another country, allowing users to access this content from anywhere.

When should you really use a VPN?

  1. When you want to keep some control over your privacy. The VPN will hide your real IP address from websites you visit and peer-to-peer nodes you connect to. It also prevents ISPs and mobile network operators from tracking the domains and IPs you visit.
  2. Protecting your connection from ‘Man in the Middle’ and other common attacks on networks you don’t trust. Useful when connected to Wi-Fi in airports, hotels, cafes and libraries.  Please see these posting for why #2 was removed.
  3. Circumventing censorship or geographical blocks on websites and content. Some VPNs can help you retrieve information, media & crypto exchanges that otherwise might be inaccessible.

But remember this about a VPN

When you log into an account like Netflix, Amazon, Fakebook FaceBook, Twitter, etc. they already have your personal information. All these types of accounts have your email address, home address, real name, credit card or bank account.  Hiding your IP address does nothing to protect your identity. 

Tracking like Google Analytics and MetaPixel know who you are even when you log out of sites listed above.

Remember that if you use a commercial VPN, your internet traffic goes through the VPN provider’s network. Whoever is in control of the servers can see and log anything you do online, if they choose to. You better trust the service you are signing up for – we will get to that in a future post of VPN Worst Practices.

How do they know you are coming from a VPN?

0:11 In this video today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to identify a connection coming in from a VPN. But I’m going to break it down into two types of VPNs. This time? This little descriptor, this little image shows you how a VPN was originally a VPN was between two offices. So they needed …

In this video today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to identify a connection coming in from a VPN. But I’m going to break it down into two types of VPNs. This time? This little descriptor, this little image shows you how a VPN was originally a VPN was between two offices. So they needed a virtual private network between the two, you know, like maybe the head office and a regional office. And so they needed all that data encrypted between the two, and that’s how a VPN originally was functioning.
And in today’s environment, it’s more of a consumer, the consumer sold product that doesn’t necessarily do what you want it or you think it’s going to do, and that was kind of in a prior video. But we’re not going to go over office to office VPN connections.
We’re going to do more of using this diagram of how a VPN works, where it’s between your computer and the Internet instead of your computer and the, the home office.
And the reason why it’s really easy to find what a connection is for a VPN.
And that’s really based on what they’ll call a an Erin Number.
Or, Erin has this list. And it’s an a S N number.
And an ASN number is issued to a block of IP addresses. And that is how an IP address is identified on who the owner is. And that’s important, because that will tell you what type of traffic it is.
For example, if you go to Comcast and look up their ASN numbers, you’ll see that, you know, they have 71 million IP V four and they have just more IPV six is than you could ever possibly use. And they’re mainly in the United States, and I think that’s really all they are.
And so when you look up their ASN number, you know that Comcast, cable, users, their IP addresses for home users and business users. So you know what type of usage it is.
Comcast Port, this set of IP addresses, doesn’t have any data center usage, meaning a server that’s located at a data center. Comcast uses these IP addresses for commercial and residential connections.
So they know, well, the, the, the service providers, the data providers, know that this AS M A S N number, is a good one to allow what I’ll call real IP addresses. Through and a real IP address, what I consider a real IP address.
Is an end user at home in a coffee shop At work.
And so you know that there’s a real person behind that IP address as compared to someone like GoDaddy and GoDaddy, they have IP addresses that mainly sit in a server, in a server farm, in a colo where all a bunch of servers are because you don’t subscribe to GoDaddy as a service provider.
GoDaddy does not make a connection into your home, but GoDaddy has a bunch of servers located, you know, around the US.
It looks like mainly Scottsdale.
And they will, you know, if you have a website hosted at GoDaddy it’s not your connection from they are servers out to the internet.
Their servers are where your, your web page lives. So that IP adress really lives in a server farm and a co-location where there’s just a bunch of servers.
So that IP address range or that ASN number is not a real IP address where there’s a real human sitting at that IP.
And the same goes for my provider that I used for IP addresses for the VPN that I have.
It is behind servers, and that’s how easy it is to identify.
is it a real IP address where someone is sitting at their computer, or is it at a server farm, or a co-location, or something like that, where there’s not a real person behind that IP address.
And when you find out that the ASN number is just two a bunch of servers, you can easily block those IP addresses.
So, when you have something like this, which, this is a plugin, four that I use on our website, and this plugin is free.
I can enable it, and I can restrict someone coming in as an VPN connection, as a proxy.
And that’s how I easily block things and connections.
When someone is coming in from a proxy, potentially toure or a VPN connection, go right through here and show you that, you know, I can kind of graph it And see what type of connections are coming in.
This is when I re enabled it stronger, because we had some, some issues earlier. And people were coming in with a VPN, and then they found out that they couldn’t use a VPN, so that kind of dropped off.
But this is one way that any web site could easily implement and start blocking all VPN connections.
And it’s happening more and more.
When you visit websites, they want to know who is truly visiting their website.
And not just allowing VPN connections that are coming from, you know, random places that they, they honestly know that you’re coming in from a VPN, and if there were crypto exchanges that wanted to block those, some do, they can implement that tomorrow. So that’s something that, you know, everybody should be aware of.
if is, if you are relying on a VPN to connect to a and exchange that, that you connect to regularly, That could change in an instant. And so that’s one reason why we don’t recommend keeping your coins on an exchange, because you don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, all of a sudden, a decision could be made.
And because you’re representing yourself that you are coming from a particular country, but you’re not coming from that country.
If they decide to flip that switch, well, you know, they warned you don’t come in with a VPN connection, Represent where you’re coming from, with a connection that you’re coming from.
And if they decide to turn that switch on, then you’re going to have to figure out how to get those coins off. If there are coins left on there. So, it is really easy to see that someone’s using a VPN.
And I just kinda wanted to show you some of the tricks and tips, and this is just a browser plugin, sorry, not a browser plugin, AM, a plugin that we use to block VPN Connections.

GLiNet – How to connect when away from home

0:11 In this video today I'm gonna go through the steps that you will need to go through when you go to a hotel or a campground or someplace where you have internet access available to you. 0:26 I'm going to show you on my my phi, but you can just, you know, replace my my phi with your Internet a...

In this video today I'm gonna go through the steps that you will need to go through when you go to a hotel or a campground or someplace where you have internet access available to you.
I'm going to show you on my my phi, but you can just, you know, replace my my phi with your Internet access, and as you can kind of see. This is my little get app that I use when I travel.
Now, I actually use this this past weekend to go see a family member, I have my new GOI, Wi-Fi six, I think it's an 8500. I have my battery pack underneath that to run my July. And then I have my My Phi, which is from Verizon and that is on battery. So everything was on battery, it's very portable, and I'm doing it out in my backyard, just to kinda show you. So, that's my setup, but you can replace, You know, what, I talk about, my, my phi will be, you know Hilton Honors, Wireless Network, whatever. I am going to stop the video right here and say I recorded this, as you can see. it was summer out and you can hear the birds and everything. This was three months ago or more.
And I do not recommend using Hilton Honors using a coffee shop using anything but your own, my fine now if you're a high net worth individual.
If you're not a high net worth individual, and you want to be safe and secure, I don't recommend using any Wi-Fi that you do not know about starbuck's, you know, hylton mariette, I no longer recommend that.
I recommend you either have my phi on your phone, or you buy a little device, as you can see, That's, this has been turned upside down.
Because, you know, I'm, I'm getting too many examples of people getting attacked man in the middle attacks, and it was because they connected to a network that may or may not have been, at a coffee shop, or at a hotel.
You don't know, There's no way to prove that you are connecting to the wireless network that you think you're connecting to. Just because it says Starbucks does not mean it is Starbucks.
It could be someone that is That's putting out the Starbucks Wi-Fi, no name, and it's their network, and not starbuck's. There's not a good way.
There's not a good protocol right now to prove what network you're connecting to the way things that are set up. enterprise.
That's a different story, but I no longer are men connecting to any Wi-Fi network that is outside your home, or at a friend's house.
Maybe that's even a little bit much, because we don't know what their network is like, so, And with the video, but when I say, You know, use your network, meaning Hilton Honors, whatever.
Stick with them.
I find you will be much safer on with the video.
So, the first thing you're going to want to do is, I'm going to show you two examples. This one is going to be through a web browser, so like your laptop, the next one is going to be through my i-phone, using this app.
So you can either do, you know, an app for your i-phone or your Google Play visit, and download it for your Android.
The first thing you're gonna want to do, though, is when you turn on your laptop, you want to have your July net up and running, so that you can connect to it. I'm going to connect to it right now to start the process.
And so I'm going to connect to my geo lineup.
Once I do that, then I will be able to access my GL lineup.
So make sure that that's connected. Yep, that looks good.
We're going to go to the admin pages.
We're just going to do a refresh, and I'm connected to my GL dash a X T, 1500, which is the latest July net Wi-Fi six. So the next thing I'm going to want to do is login.
Let me go up here.
Happy password.
Paste my password login.
And I am connected to my GL lineup with my laptop.
What I want to do is connect as a repeater.
So since there's no Ethernet connection, repeater, tethering, or cellular, I'm never going to do tethering or cellular cellular. It is kind of what I'm doing, but it's a my phi. So it is a hotspot that travels with me.
On the repeater side, click Connect.
It'll bring up all the available networks that you can connect to.
In my case, it's going to be my my phi. In your case, it might be Hilton Honors.
So there's a whole long list, and the first one is my, my fi mobile.
I'll click that, put the password in.
I'm not going to save that password.
It does take a little bit of time to connect to it.
This is now connected.
I can go wherever I want, I can go to the App Store, download this, and we're kind of good to go on that.
So the next example is on the App Store, OK?
The first thing you're going to want to do is make sure that the app is installed.
Once the app is installed, you need to select your GL line net little router and connect to it wirelessly.
So, this phone, or your phone, or your android, is already connecting to the ... Net, and it may complain, and say, there's no internet while. We're gonna solve that right now. We're gonna go ahead and open the ...
app, and we're going to say that internet is offline.
So we need to put it online, and we need to click on the offline Internet.
We need to It says right down here, Repeater STA is Disabled Let's go ahead and click on that. It's going to search for networks.
And the first one we're going to select is my, My five, this would be Your Hilton Honors is your mariann whatever network that you're trying to connect to whether it's at a hotel, a campground or an airplane, whatever, you're going to click on that, you're going to put the password in if there's a password.
Join it matey.
Oh, and, it is now connected.
So, the SOS ID is the one that you're going to be connecting to. That is the one that, it will be, wherever you are, traveling, hotel, coffee shop, whatever, And now your Jawline, it is connected to the Internet, and you're good to go, Thanks a lot!

GLiNet – Speed Tests

0:10 OK, in this part of the video, we're going to do speed, test. 0:16 And a couple things, The first one I'm going to run is my normal wireless network, too, to my desk. 0:26 And then that's the wireless than then I'll do a direct connection with an Ethernet cable to my network, and then we w...

OK, in this part of the video, we're going to do speed, test.
And a couple things, The first one I'm going to run is my normal wireless network, too, to my desk.
And then that's the wireless than then I'll do a direct connection with an Ethernet cable to my network, and then we will do the GL Lynette 8300, and then we will do the older model, which is E.
1500, so, let's start the process, so this is my regular Ohm Wireless Network.
I go to ... dot com, it's put up by Netflix, it's typically not thrown through a faster network path by my ISP.
But, you know, so 360 megabits per second, not too bad for a wireless network, let's get my regular network, this speed test is for my regular network wired network, Ethernet connected.
So, you know, it is significantly more when you are connected. When you're wired into your network than when you're using the wireless.
The next example that we're going to do is the, is the GOI Net 1800 and we'll see how that compares.
OK, in this example, we are on the July, 1400, Guilder one that I have. Let's see what it looks like.
I'm not too bad 120 megabits per second. Not bad at all. And let's try the latest and greatest, which is the Wi-Fi six on the July 1800.
And as a final test, we're going to run it on the ... 1800, The latest one that I got it.
Let's see.
OK, it looks like it's almost twice as fast as the 3400, so that is a great comparison, and it will show you what you might be expecting. Or when you use.
OK, and here are some speed tests in a real-world environment, that's in my backyard. So, part of my backyard, I have the GOI Net 1300 guilder 1. It's been out there for a little bit just to extend the range of my network and to play with it, to be honest.
So if I stand right next to My July 1800, and I'm on my home network, I get about 150 megabits.
which is pretty fast, because it's the, yeah, the five G of my Home network. If I run and connect directly to my 3500 same location, it's about 72.
It's a little bit slower than I thought it was going to be.
But, you know, it's also in an enclosure that may not have the greatest distance because it kind of stops the, The waves going through.
So the next thing that I did was I tried to stand about twice as far from my house to where this device was.
And if I ran my home network on my phone, I got about 58 megabits.
If I connected to the July 1500, I got about 50 megabits, which isn't bad at all.
Then, the interesting thing, though, is when I, when I've gone up to my hidey Hole, and I use this device where the network is, how it's constructed, because I didn't construct it.
I don't know how they have it set up but when I just tried it, connect directly to the network up there I get about hmm, hmm.
I'm about 13 megabits per second if I use this same device and connect to their wireless network, I get about 25.
So, however, the structures are where the network antennas are this helps me get a lot faster connection to the internet.
Where I kind of go on, some of my, my weekends, So, you know, it really depends on your environment. And if it's going to help But may help, it may not help. It really just depends on what your environment is and you know, how that that structure is. So I just wanted to give you this feedback on this is the real-world, in my backyard.

GLiNet Setup

0:11 In this video, today, I'm gonna go over how you can set up your jawline, that device. The one that I'm going to set up is the slight acts that you can see right here it's WI fi six. 0:27 I just got this one in from Amazon. 0:32 And the one that I have used before for months and months and ...

In this video, today, I'm gonna go over how you can set up your jawline, that device. The one that I'm going to set up is the slight acts that you can see right here it's WI fi six.
I just got this one in from Amazon.
And the one that I have used before for months and months and months now is the 1300.
And I'm not going to set this one up.
So, you know, there may be a little bit of a difference when you login and see the admin pages.
Because what I have noticed, working with a client on this is that the new one is a little bit bigger, because it did not fit in the case that I showed earlier.
I'm going to do first thing, because I did have an issue with this before, is if you're setting this up at home, what you want to do is you want to not have, I'm not sure how it works on Windows, if it automatically really tries to lock you in. But on the Mac side of things, let me just show you something.
When you go back and forth with configuring this, what your computer tries to do is get you onto a network that has internet access. And that's great when you're doing stuff, and you want to get on the internet.
But when you want to focus on configuring that device, that may not always work. So, let me go in and show you a few things.
On the Mac side, what you're going to want to do is you're going to want to open the network preferences, and you're going to want to go to Advanced.
And all of these auto joins you're gonna want to uncheck so that it doesn't automatically log you in.
You're gonna need to do this while you're configuring this.
Because if not, you're going to have some issues of your computer wanting to login to a network, that has an Internet connection.
When you're trying to configure your GI net, if you're away from home and you're doing this on your mobile device, or something like that, and you're not going to be picking up any local networks, you're not going to have to do that. So first thing you'll want to do is click off the auto join, and then went to the next step.
Oh. That you have your networks not automatically joining.
What you're going to want to do is make sure that your device is plugged in.
You'll probably look on the front of it, and it'll be flashing A alight.
And that means that it's waiting for you to connect and configure it.
So, yours is going to look a little bit different.
But what you're gonna want to do is look for something like this: G L, dash, X T, 1800 dash 363.
That's my model number.
Depending on what you decide to purchase, the model number might be a little bit different. I would go with this one and not the dash.
I think it's dash five G. I would go with the the slower one right now, because it's easier to connect to if that's what I've found in my, in my configuring this. So look in your network. So you can connect to this, and then it will log you into the admin pages.
So we're going to go right up here.
Actually, I'm going to go ahead and switch my network.
Once you select the network, you'll get this little popup.
At least on the Mac, windows will look a lot different. And you will need the password. Now, the password is issued to you on the bottom of the device. It actually don't, They don't call it password. They call it key.
So grab that key or password, and then we'll be able to log right into.
The Admin pages, when the network connex. So I'm waiting for this network to connect.
OK, looks like it's connected. So then I can go to the Admin pages. And the Admin pages are basically also on the bottom.
And they are labeled IP Address.
So I'm going to go here, and I've already tried to login when I wasn't connected.
And I'm going to hit this button. And now, we're able to login to the admin pages. I'm going to select English.
You can select whatever language you want, going to go next. And this is where you're going to set a new password. This is a password, that you will, of course, keep in LastPass so that you can have it, and you will know what the password is each time. So go ahead, select a password. Make sure you write it down, Well, it, copy it down, put it into your password manager, and then we'll go onto the next step.
OK, I had my password manager.
Issue me, a random long string.
And you'll see the requirements.
And I'm going to say apply.
I'm going to say, not now, because I have another one that I have, the same IP address board, the older one.
And I have that rent down, so I can store it in my LastPass later on. So this is where you'll login to the admin pages. This is what it looks like right now.
It shows that there's a one client.
And what we need to do is figure out how we're going to connect this device to the Internet, and let me just bring this up.
So here's the device itself.
You'll see that it says when one, or sorry, land one, Land two, and when LAN stands for Local Area Network, that's where you plug in a computer or a printer or something like that, laptop, Solange one land, too.
Those would be Ethernet cables that you can plug into. Whan is a wide area network and that's your Internet connection, basically.
I don't plug in anything to these. I use everything via wireless, And that's just my choice, because it makes it really easy.
In fact, I can use this device in my car, traveling, you know, hours and hours, So that, how I have things set up for my family, this can protect me and as you'll see later, when you change, or if you decide to change your DNS, when my son is watching something on his iPad or something like that, he doesn't see ads because my DNS settings don't allow ads. They basically drop ads into a black hole, so he never sees those.
So, we'll go back here, and so, you can, if you have a connection, an Ethernet cable connection, if you're at a hotel, or long term place, that you're, your rent teen, or an office environment, or even at home, You know, you can extend your network with something like this.
So, you can use an Ethernet cable, you can use tethering, that's kind of an older technology. I feel like your i-phone.
You used to be able to tether, which was plug a your your cell phone in one side of the cable and You're something like this in another side.
And that just wasn't going to happen.
And then you can have cellular, and a cellular would be something like this: this is what I'm going to setup today because this is my mobile version of my network.
So if I go to a coffee shop, or if I go to where I go on weekends or weeks away, I will have my geoeye Net and that will broadcast to my environment, my house, my, whatever, my car, the network that I will connect to directly here, whether it be a laptop, iPad, you know, it could be my i-phone, if I wanted, and this device to get out to the Internet, instead of connecting to whan Port, it just connects via Wi-Fi so it's Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi.
And that's how all my networks, pretty much function right now.
This is what I'm going to be connecting to E GLA net and to do that.
I'm not going to use a cellular, uh, This cellular feature because it says, you have to put a USB modem.
and That would fit right in here.
I it I'm never going to do that my my my phi this is my phi.
It doesn't have that feature.
It really just this my phi Broadcast a wireless Network that I'm going to catch. So I'll show you how that is.
So as this is all set up, there's many ways that you can do it.
So I'm not saying one is better than another. This is how I'm doing it. I'm going to have this as a repeater.
So what I need to do is I need to click on Connect is going to bring all the available networks in my area and this one, see how it has my fi mobile.
I'm going to click on that one.
I'm going to put the password in.
I'm going to say, apply.
It's going to go through.
It's going to make that connection to my my phi.
OK, did say timeout, but sometimes it just does that and I can look on my my phi itself and it says alert a Wi-Fi devices connected to your, my thigh.
So, right now, this geoeye net connected, too, my watch my phi. And so, now, this is able to get out to the Internet.
So, let's go through a couple other things on this page.
You can see that there's an IP address given Ouch.
You can see that it, Connected via repeater.
And so, you have a connection now to the internet.
And If you want to, you can keep the standard Wi-Fi network names, but I personally Like to change them. So you could click wireless over here.
And this is the five gigahertz Wi-Fi.
That's the five gigahertz guest network.
Here's the 2.4 gigahertz, and the 2.4 gigahertz guest network. I'm not gonna go into guests networks. That's something that You can set up if you want I'm not gonna really have guests on this device.
Everybody that I know is going to or everybody that is going to use it I will know I do have a guest network in my house four.
Guess it I mean. yeah, guests.
So, but I, this is something that I use fairly regular Lee, when I travel. But when it's day to day, I, I don't really use this. So, you can go ahead and click on Modify.
You can change this network name.
You can change the Wi-Fi password to something that you will remember.
Just make sure that when you make all these changes, you know, you'll remember right now, and you may write them down, but you will forget it potentially when you travel. So go ahead and put that in your password manager under the login information for this particular IP address and then you won't run into any issues.
So, I'm not going to change this right now. I'm just going to leave it as default.
And you can change it, if you want, just the same, You just click on Modify, and you would make those changes.
Just know that, when you make changes like this, and you hit Apply, you kinda get bumped off line.
And then you're brought back on line because I believe the router kind of has to push out memory. It may have to do a quick restart. Not a whole reboot.
But just refresh that information, so you may have to reconnect to your Let me do it up here to the new Wi-Fi name that you created, as well as the new Wi-Fi password, So it would be like you're logging into the network that is put out by the G L. I Net.
So, a couple other things that you can look at, you can see if there's an upgrade, it looks like.
It looks like there is A a firmware update that I can do later on. It'll show you the clients that are connected. So, this is my Mac Studio.
And this is what I'm configuring. This may show a laptop, or iPad, or an i-phone, or something like that.
This is one way that you can see, you know, who's on your network?
Who's on your, your, your mobile network?
Firewall, you can play with that, if you want.
I really don't need to for what I'm doing, VPN, this is an option that you can use.
I know some people are doing that. I'm not necessarily doing it. I might do it.
And some, some of the things that I'm doing, I may put this all on the firewall, or, sorry, on the VPN.
Basically, instead of having a local VPN connection, like Wire Guard that you install on the computer.
You would set this up as a all wire guard connection for your GOI net.
But I'm not gonna go through showing you how to do that.
That's kind of more advanced stuff, and, you know, if you do have questions, you can always e-mail in, and I can work on some of those, but this is really for a broad range of people. And I know not too many are going to want to use Wire Guard for this. There are a ton of applications that you can use. I'm not gonna go through those. There are hundreds, and it's some fun stuff that you can look at.
Let's see. I did put a 16 gig in here and I'm.
Yeah. Here we go.
This is the card that I showed you earlier.
It's the SD card, You don't really need it, but I always put it in there, just in case because I don't know what I don't know.
And it's better to have something in there that I might deed.
if I had something that I wanted to do, than to have to go order it and not have it with me, because this is really going to be when I'm away from home and using it in a different type of environment.
OK, now let's look under More Settings, because this is one other thing that I want to go over with you.
I would definitely change your admin password, and, of course, you will put this new admin password in your LastPass or your password manager.
You can, if you want, change your router IP Adress sequence, meaning everything starts at 192 dot 1 6 8, and that is a non routing IP address range.
and it comes standard with dot H.
Top one is the, the IP address of this router itself.
But you could set this up like I have multiple GOI nets and so my, my oldest one is an eight.
My next oldest 1 is 9. And this one, I'll probably move to attend or something like that. And I'm not going to do that right now, because it will restart and I'm going to say, this is what you can look at, but I make those choices.
If you want it, the simplest and easiest way, just keep it at eight.
If not, you're going to have documented. Because you'll look on the GOI net underneath and it'll say 192 dot 1 68 dot 8 dot 1.
And if you forget what it is, then you're going to have to remember. Otherwise, you can't get into the admin pages.
So just be aware of that.
Network mode, you can kind of go through some of this, You know. You gotta know what you're doing when you make some of these changes.
And the reason why I'm not gonna go into really A great detail on this is I want to keep it simple. It's the Kiss method. And if you keep it simple, then, you know, when you don't use it for four months, and then you on the fifth month you use it, you're like, wait, what did I do, and how is the setup? You know, when you know what you're doing, go in and make those changes. But keep it simple and not complex.
This isn't about trying to hide from everybody in the world, This is just trying to keep private and keep yourself secure. So you don't have to worry about IPV six.
Don't need reset firmware. Let's go into advanced settings.
I know I went in here. Oh, no! We're not going to do that. That is kind of some Lucy stuff. You can read about that, though.
The thing that I did want to say was, Um, I always change my DNS on everything and DNS is the part of your network protocol that turns when you type in google dot com, it turns it into an IP address and gets you to the right server.
Well, if you know about DNS, I'm probably just dangerous enough to know little.
But, when you have your internet provider, your ISP, that would be like coxe or AT&T or spectrum, they want you to use their DNS server.
So that when you look up google dot com, they know that you just looked up google dot com.
If you typed in Coin Market Cap into that, it would go to their DNS and resolve to the correct IP address. And that's how they know where you go and and travel on the internet. It's not that they're looking at your packets.
Because your packets most likely are encrypted, no with HTTPS, and that's not what they're looking at.
They're looking at your DNS searches or requests.
And that's how they know where you're going. So it's just kinda the metadata, it's that, oh, if you go to Coin Market Cap, you're interested in crypto.
If you go to NRA dot com, think that's the address then you might be interested in guns. And if you go to other addresses, that's what they know your interests are. And that's the data that they put into your data file, which then they sell to data houses that then resell it.
So, when you control your DNS and there's different ways of doing it and I'm not gonna get into too deep of A, it here, but when you control your DNS, then you control what data other people get and what data they don't get. So, my ISP.
I never lookup anything on their DNS servers, because I how's my own DNS server within my house and when I'm in it, it's basically a pie hole. And that will be another separate video.
I love my pie whole. Been using it for years.
And but there is a way that you can protect more of your data when you're not at home. And so at home in my network, I have a pie hole.
But when I'm using this, and I'm away, how do I do that? I can't come into my network and use that DNS server.
This is how I do it. And this is how you can do it, too. So, I have a DNS server out in the internet, it's you really shouldn't have it this way, but I use it. For when I'm not at home, you can use it. The reason why it shouldn't be right out on the internet is because DNS servers get attacked. And they, yeah, it's just not a good thing.
Typically, when you connect to a DNS server in your, with your ISP or your internet service provider, they have it that it cannot be reached outside of their network and that's just one way to protect it. When I was working someplace, we had someone, and this is way back in the day is when 10 gigs was a lot of data. Someone's attacking us with a 10 gig attack because they were attacking our DNS server because our DNS server was had an open port to the Internet, and so they were attacking it directly, which was not fun.
And, you know, after we figured out, We were able to clean it up, but that's now here nor there.
So, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go to the, 1, 4, 5, dot, 79, 2, 8, 2, and three, and this is my pie hole on the internet.
You can feel free to, to use it.
But it is a way, let me see if I can login here.
That I can block certain domains from lists that I subscribe to, and you can see most of the top domains that are that are blocked are things that are tracking doubleclick.
Google bought doubleclick or a time ago, Google Manager, Apple, DNS, Google Analytics.
And this is just a backup that I use.
And so this isn't my main ..., and we're not going to get into the smart home on this video. But you can use this IP address. So I'm gonna copy this IP.
And this IP address, I can go ahead and put in.
What I'm going to do is, instead of having automatic, I am going to say Manual DNS. So my first DNS server, mm hmm.
Didn't know they had a list already. I don't want to use Google.
Public, DNS Google controls at Google will see what you're searching for, or the places that you're going. You can do open DNS. I don't necessarily. I'm not in love with them.
I would prefer Cloudflare and do they have it?
They don't have, OK, Yeah, and they have Quad nine.
So what you can do, you could have your first one as Quad nine, or Cloudflare, or you can kinda look these up, I don't know commandoes Secure.
You know, part of Quad nine, they're non-profit. They will block malicious websites.
So there is a little bit of censorship but it's not a bad censorship. It means they are locking bad websites that may be posing as others, whereas Google really doesn't do that.
zero point two, eight dot 203, OK. So that's the first one optional, I guess, because I'm going to my primary one, I could do quite nine here.
And you can have a third and a fourth.
Let's just see something real quick.
You could do Cloudflare at 1.1 point 1.1, you could add a secondary as 1 4 9 dot 1 1 2 dot 1 slash 2 dot 102 as a quad nine backup.
So there's, there's a variety of ones that you can choose. I would just not keep the automatic one, and so I'm going to say apply.
And it may kicks me off, wallets, updating that.
OK, it just updated that so didn't update the name or the or the password.
So that's really the, the crux of setting this up, that, you know, you have a different DNS server that you're using a backup DNS server, you could have, you know, four of them, whatever. But let's go back to this part.
So great, You're telling yourself, George, thank you for having, you know, helping us set this up. So what do we do when we travel? Well?
Basically what you're going to want to do when you travel is take your unit, plug it in.
Your devices may already know the name that you have set up here so that your device. when this is plugged in and running. It has power to it. This device is the one that I'm talking about, the ....
When it has power, your computer, you're laptop, your phone, your iPad, while will automatically try to connect to the ... Net.
But your GL I Net needs to have you manually go in and connect it to the Internet.
So, this is where, wherever you end up, you're going to need to login to this IP address.
With the one that you left, correct.
You know, the 102 dot 1 68 dot 8 dot 1, when your laptop connects to it, there is a mobile app that you can use.
You may be able to use the browser on your cell phone, but you're going to have to when you get to where you are, you're going to go to the wireless network.
You're going to select whatever wireless network name you selected for the GL I, Ynette, and then you will be able to login with the IP address that is assigned to the GOI Net.
When you get in, you will see this page, but what you won't necessarily see is the correct network. And you won't see Switch network, you'll see Connect, and it'll be the same way that we did earlier.
N And I'll click Switch network right now, it's on this particular under no networks, and then underneath is the available networks. And so the available network may be Hilton Hotels or Marriott Tour.
Motel six, or Disney, whatever. You will select the correct network that you want that G L I Net to connect to.
So when your computer connects to the jail I net, the GOI Net, will then connect to the Internet.
And, What that does Is, it gives you some protection, because your IP range will be this private IP range, and it won't be a public IP range, and that will give you some more privacy.
So, if you are in a hotel, and you're on Hilton, Honors, Hylton Network, whatever.
There might be 20 other people that are on Hilton Honors, Hiltons Network, whatever, and they may be able to see you, They may not. It depends on how they've configured their network. Some networks are better than others, but I'm telling you, it's really hard to understand how a network is designed when you're not the one who designed it. You can guess, but that's what you're doing. You're guessing. you're not knowing, and I prefer to know about my environment and not guess. So, that's why I love this little device. And I may have said it, but I'm going to say it again.
This little device is, is really becoming a one of my standards that I use when I travel.
I know other people, Jeddah has found that it's great for him extending his network.
I like it because my DNS server blocks and blocks.
A lot of the garbage that comes through here. I'll give you an example.
Kinda get into the weeds on this a little bit, but do, but I was gonna give you an example.
And I will, but the one thing that, I forgot when I was initially suddenly in this up, is that if you put A DNS, that blocks a, an IP range, a, A, destination, that, a secondary DNS server, we'll pick it up.
And this is going way further in the weeds that I wanted to. But I think it's important for you to understand.
So, if all of a sudden I say apply, like I had in the previous part of the video, this first DNS server, well, not Basically it, They call it a black hole.
So, if a Google ad comes up, instead of giving you the correct IP address, it'll just given a black hole 0 dot 0 dot 0 dot 0, and it'll go away.
But when you have a DNS server as a secondary, that will back this one up because this one can't resolve it. This one picks it up. And this is what I mean.
So, if we're going to a different browser, we do a refresh.
you will see.
That the ad's come in.
See, we didn't have these before because the first DNS server couldn't find it so it went to the secondary DNS server and then when you go back in and you remove this one, what I've found is that you may have to reboot this for it to go away meaning that the DNS isn't stored in a cache somewhere. So, let's just say we take this.
We go do it again, It's going to show ads.
Because I'll see, right now, it's unable to connect because the DNS server basically said, Oh, I don't know where this is.
And so, you don't see an ad, you just see A, basically, there's kind of a 404 to Connie get rid of that.
What you can do, I'll just go through this real quick.
A password.
OK, rebooted this password in Login. And here we have it.
And we'll go down to more settings, DNS, and you'll see it went back to that.
Go here.
And it should kind of disappear and go away. So, that is what you see.
When you have just no, just say my Internet DNS server, because it blocks at.
If you go, and you put a 9 dot 9 dot 9 dot 9 down here as a backup, this one will block it.
This one will unblock it but if you put something just like let's do.
Quad nine, apply it.
I don't think you're gonna have to restart on this.
You can check out some of the others.
I don't know how private, the ad, the anti ad one, what was that called?
It was called Add Guard, I don't know how private those are.
I know about Quad nine. So, we'll go back here.
We'll hit refresh.
And you'll see all the ads.
Part of this is when you see an ad, that means you can connect to the server.
That means that all the little tracking pieces are following you.
So, you know, this was served by Google. Google Adsense is on most every page it seems like, and the Internet, so it tracks you from place to place to place.
When you have a pie hall, when you have a connection, or, sorry, a DNS setting for A blocking those ads, blocking those tracking, URLs, that type of thing. Those ads just go away.
So, this is how you have things set up. I think I got too far down DNS, but when you go to new hotel, when you go to a new place, you're going to want to add the network here.
And because your other devices have already connected to the GOI Net device, it'll be pretty easy.
So, I would play with it first, before you set out analog Venture, just to get comfortable with it.
Hopefully, this has helped you understand how to set things up ups, and we'll go onto the next video. Thanks.

If you like the idea, but hate the tech side of it, think about booking some time with Jetta Red or George.

Why Use GLiNet

0:01 In this video today, I am going to talk about the GOI net. 0:06 And how I am using my life and how I think it's important for, if you travel, if you access the internet, mainly your your laptop and, and maybe your iPad type of things where you don't have data on those particular devices.

In this video today, I am going to talk about the GOI net.
And how I am using my life and how I think it's important for, if you travel, if you access the internet, mainly your your laptop and, and maybe your iPad type of things where you don't have data on those particular devices. I know everybody that has a smartphone basically, has a data plan, but, we don't necessarily have data plans on our computers, and, iPads, and those other type of devices.
Well, I'm going to go through why I think it's important for you to add something like this in your life. If you travel, and you access wireless networks, other than what is, under your control, which basically means, at home.
If you go to a hotel, if you, Starbucks, if you go to just a generalized wireless network, you could be in trouble. So, what I'm gonna do is, I suggested a video a while ago, and I've suggested a couple of times, and it's 15 minutes, and it's technical, and I know, probably after five minutes, people are like, yeah, I'm not going to watch this.
But what I am going to suggest is that you watch this minute and NaN because what? This, traynor, what this white hat, what this ethical hacker has to say, is really important for you to know.
Um, and if you are unaware, well, now I'm, I'm kinda making you aware of the vulnerabilities that are out there.
I was not aware how vulnerable.
We all are on public WI fi.
And when I say public Wi-Fi, I mean, any Wi-Fi, we have not set up.
We do not know what is what's behind it, you know, if you're at a friend's house, if you trust your friend.
You think that they have a good networking. You know, you just don't know for sure.
So, go ahead and watch this video, and then we'll pickup after the.
Did we drive dive into the, know, the technology, and why it works, and that type of thing?
So that's why you don't ever use public Wi-Fi. You always use Wi-Fi or use Internet that you control. If you don't.
If you go to us, if you're traveling or something like that, you want to just use your phone tether your phone, to your laptop or something of that nature, because using public WI Fi, this could very easily happen to you.
And again, VPNs, don't help you VPNs, Only give you confidentiality.
VPNs don't stop you from getting exploited. If you hit a malicious site, it's got like browsers zero days in it.
So the solution here is simple. Don't use Public WI Fi if you have an option.
And if you if you're an important enough employee to be using VPNs that frequently, you should be able to get approval for them to pay for broadband. Or something for you on your mobile device.
You can even get it inside your mobile device as well.
That's kinda how you would mitigate that. There's other things that will keep this from happening on your corporate network. But remember, attackers of stop attacking you. When you go to get off your corporate network, you go to these public places where you move on.
OK, I'm going to talk about two different GOI net devices. And these devices are used to broadcast to create a network in your environment.
Whether you're in a car, you're in a train, you're in a hotel.
You're at a friend's house.
No, not for the day, but, you know, staying over and having an extended period of time where you aren't going to break out your laptop or your, your iPad.
You know, these are the two devices.
And the 1500 is an older model, works just as well. It's a little bit smaller, as you can see, than the larger gray one. And it comes, well, it does not come, but you can build this. Each of these you had to purchase separately so that ... the case.
And we'll talk about power supplies in just a little bit.
So this is the larger Slate, 1500.
You have to buy the case. You have to buy.
In my case, I bought a power supply and cable for that.
I got rid of the older.
Whoops. Let's see.
The older, original power supply with it, because it was big and bulky, um, it wasn't sleek.
I can only really use it for the GOI Net, and I replaced it with, I'll have links down below, if you're interested.
But a power supply, where it's USB C, you can have a power supply that USB C, and USB AAB, so that you can plug different things in, but I can plug my G ally net, I can plugin, my i-phone. I can plug in other things using this particular power supply as compared to, I can just plug this into my, GL Lynette.
And so, you know, why carry something that I can only handle one thing? I like to carry one thing that can handle many things.
So we're gonna go back to This is the Slate, 1500 ....
The, the two of them really kind of do the same thing.
The gray one is is WI fi six.
The light gray is just the older model. There is a little bit of a price difference but you know for me, I'm going with the newer one.
Just because So, there's the case. This is what it looks like out of the case.
These are two antennas on the side, I don't have a picture. But that's where you can stick in a 16.
Wow, I have a bunch of 16 gig micro SD cards, because I use them for pi holes, but you can put in just about any size and that extra memory. You can store little apps that you can experiment with. I don't have any other apps running on it, but there are some fun things that you can you can do. So this is the back of the line that we have land one and land too.
Lan's stands for Local Area Network. So if you wanted to, you could stick a printer or you could plug a laptop in, if you want.
In my case, when I do travel, depending on how long, I will stick a pie hole into one of these ports so that I take back the control of my DNS so that I don't experience.
If you watch the video, the full video, DNS poisoning, I'm not X giving my DNS entries, my DNS requests away to Verizon, if I use my my phi, I'm not giving my DNS requests to anybody, I'm taking those DNS requests and I'm putting them on my DNS server. And the pie hole will then go out and find, or if it's already found, those requests, it will just retrieve them locally. So that's one way to keep yourself a lot more private.
The pi whole, we'll go into a deeper dive on other videos but it is a recursive DNS server, which means it goes to the core DNS servers. So it's not going and asking Google or Cloudflare or, you know, any other DNS provider like Spectrum or *** or Comcast or x-finity or AT&T, all of this.
It goes to the core routers.
So I do, and what I will show you in the videos after this is that I take my GL line at, and I have paired it up with my my phi.
This is a Verizon, my phi, that it creates a wireless network, like he was talking about in the video.
He says, You know, This is the best to use, which I agree, but I'm adding on to that. I don't want to just connect to this, my phi, because Verizon is getting my DNS requests and seeing where I'm going. This also puts me in a more public space.
Like there's not that much I like that firewall that that separates me from the internet.
But when you Mary, a mie phy device like this and A Get this one, the GOI Net, then you're connecting to the GOI Net Which is kind of like your little firewall.
Let's just put it that way.
It's, you can use it for a firewall, but it's, it gives you a a private IP address that people would be hard to attack you behind this device and this device then connects to the My Phi, which then goes directly to, in my case, Verizon.
So, I'm not using Starbuck's, I'm not using, um, Hilton Honors or marryat or no any other wireless network that we don't know.
I am for sure. 99% percent Sure.
There's the 1% and we're not going to go down that road that I am connecting to a Verizon data, um, tower.
Because I'm getting approved, I have an account with them, and I am pretty certain that I am connecting to Eva, Risin data plan that I pay for. And so, I don't have to necessarily worry that I'm going to experience a man in the middle attack.
Because as, you know, well, as this article, and many articles say, you know, it's really easy, too to do a man in the middle attack. This video, if you go through all of it, shows you how easy it is.
And, you know, I, I really want you to be informed on your potential for experience, a man and mental tech. It's not hard, like it was back in the day. There are tools that are now out now out there that just about anybody can use.
So no, there will, I will have links down below. But here is a set of videos that you can go through And this is from GL Lynette.
And they kind of go through the different things that you may want to do. Some of this may be way over board on what you're looking for.
But, this is a resource where you can learn about, know, how private you want to be. How do you want to set up your network.
You can also book some time with me if you want, but I just wanted to bring this to your attention that you really need to be careful when you are out on public Wi-Fi, and how vulnerable you are. So that's it.
You can listen to the next set of videos if you'd like.
Thanks a lot, doctor Singh.

NEO N3 & FlamingoFinance

0:10 In this video today, I am going to show you, how you can convert your neo, your gas. 0:20 And you're flamengo from the legacy, neo wallets to the N three. And I'm going to be showing you how to do it via a ledger. You don't have a ledger. Then you kind of piece that together and, and do it w...

In this video today, I am going to show you, how you can convert your neo, your gas.
And you're flamengo from the legacy, neo wallets to the N three. And I'm going to be showing you how to do it via a ledger. You don't have a ledger. Then you kind of piece that together and, and do it with whatever wallet you have. But the first thing we're gonna do is we are going to use the Neon wallet.
And some people are aware, or they're not aware, But if you have your ledger connected to the Neon wallet, you can use the ...
Wallet with your ledger, and it's the same thing. So you swap it back and forth, and that's what we're going to be doing in a way But You don't have to just use the Neon wallet.
You can use the ...
Wallet when you have a letter So that's why it's great to use a hardware wallet And You gotta use ledger if you want to use a hardware wallet so you download the Neon wallet?
Click on Legacy because we're gonna look at your old coins Or the and to Version two we're gonna click on Leger make sure you have your ledger app opened It's going to go through and get the addresses.
So there we have the wallet address, We're going to click Login.
And you'll see that I have three neo some flamingo and some gas.
The Flamengo, we're not going to be able to swap out into Neo three. That's going to be later on in the video, on how to do that. So, the first thing we're going to want to do is look at the migration.
one thing that I needed to remind you before we started, was, you will need the neo N three app, as well as the neo legacy app on your ledger before you start this process. So, here's a short clip on how to easily do that. You gotta have both of those apps on your ledger before you start the process.
Now, I'm going to show you how you can get the N three app onto your ledger, because that's what you're going to need to do.
So, login the ledger live, go into the manager, then you can say, neo in the app catalog. And you should have this one.
So, you can see it's installed, now, near the neo and three click Install, go through the process, have it installed, and then you'll be ready for the next part.
And it's going to ask you to connect your Leger device, which you already have, but you're in the N two older app on the ledger, so you're going to want to quit out of that.
And look for.
That you just installed, It's a little bit different.
The icon.
I'm selecting that.
There we have it.
We have this wallet address, and we're going to say, continue.
And this is the wallet address that I am going to just, whoops, I'm going to copy, just so I have that for my references.
And we're gonna go through this, select a token to migrate. You can migrate using multiple transactions in the Neon wallet, so you don't feel obligated to migrate all of your assets in a single event. If you aren't comfortable doing so, when I originally did it, I did 10 the first time, and then I did the rest, just so that I could feel comfortable. But we only have, I believe it was three, so we're gonna do three.
Just know if you have lots of neo transactions.
More likely gas.
You might run into an issue where you, it says that it can't handle the number of, that it's too large.
I don't remember the exact error, but it's because there are so many gas deposits because you know, there's they trickle in over time on the The and two Network And basically the way around that is to send Chunks of Gas to yourself in your old wallet.
Well, this wallet and the end to wallet, I Can show you how to do that because I already did that, But It's basically, You know, sending 100 gas to yourself or 10 gas yourself. Just see you. You get that that error, so we're going to say Max. We're going to say, Continue.
Now, you are about to migrate N three from this to here.
OK, and the fee is going to be one gas.
It seems kind of expensive, but what do you do?
Most users should receive their tokens on the neo N three, within 30 minutes.
However, some migrations may take up to 24 hours. So what we're going to do, is we're going to unlock.
ARR Leger, using the neo two, not the neo three, because it's going from here, two here.
So what we have to do is approve the layer, sorry, not layer, the N two network. So we're gonna get out of the N three.
Back into the Neo, to on my ledger.
And now it's going to unlock it.
We're going to say, confirm, going to sign the transaction except.
There we go a little confetti wooed like New Year's all over again. So right now it may take a little bit of time.
I'll have to see.
Look at the activity.
Looks like I'm going to have to get a little bit more gas, because I am out of gas. I spent that.
And it's just going to take a bit of time, too.
Get into, from no 2, 2, 9, 3. So we're in the legacy, legacy, meaning older?
And let's go take a look at the new wallet. So we're going to log out.
We're going to go into the N three side of things.
You need to go into the N three on your ledger jer ger lot of back and forth, back and forth. But, but to do it. So, we get, I'm now in the N three on my ledger.
We're going to click on leger, we're going to click, this is the one login.
K may take a little bit of time, so, we're just going to let that do its thing, and, I'll be back in a little bit.
OK, we are in the and three wallet with this Adress.
And you can see that the three Neo have been converted. I think it took about 15 minutes or so.
I was doing other things behind the, behind the scenes, but it wasn't a half an hour.
So, there are your three MEO, we're basically going to be doing almost the exact same thing with gas, the thing you have to remember, and we're going to get out of here, so, we're going to say, log out.
The thing that you have to remember is that when you do it with your gas, you need to give a little. Or you need to have a little bit agas remain in your wallet so, that you can convert convert, convert your flamingo.
So, I'm going to get out of this, and into the Legacy.
We're now in the Legacy App.
And, I have 100 Flamengo, and I did add some more gas, because I didn't know it was going to cost one gas to have your Neo converted.
Um, I think when you have larger number of Neo, it may be free.
Should have thought of that, before I put that number in, but, that's just one gas, $6. So, the next thing you're gonna want to do, is convert your gas, and it's the same process that you need to go through. So, you would go to Migration.
That is what has been migrated already, to go in and change the app.
To the N three P B proves that that is the Correct, correct, correct, Right.
OK, we're going to say continue.
This time, it's gas. I'm not going to put Max.
I'm just going to do two we're going to see if it's really expensive.
I'm not necessarily going to do any until I Use the gas to, to help move the flamengo.
So right now, we will do to Continue Yeah, there's going to be one gas fee.
Um, I am not going to do it.
So, this is the same process that we did before.
The app that's currently open is the N three. You need to go ahead and open the N two, which is the legacy app.
And, that's, you have to go back to the end to or the legacy app, because you're sending it from here to hear and you have to approve it on the legacy app, on your ledger.
So, that's it on the gas.
I'm going to stop for now. And, we'll start up and I'll show you how to do your flamingo.
Pay this next part to convert flamingo 2 and three, or the, you know, Neil, three.
You cannot use a ledger to do that.
You need to have a O three or a neo line wallet to use that, and right now, the O three wallet does not support the N three app on the ledger.
Maybe in the near future, it will, but if you want to do it today, you can't. So to get around that, what you have to do is you have to create a soft wallet. I'm going to show you the, the O three just because that's what I feel comfortable with. And what you have to do is, you have to say, create new wallet.
So, I'm gonna go through the process Just to show you.
And so, what you need to do is, you need to select the Neon, or, sorry, the neo N three.
Next, we're going to say.
four and three passphrase.
OK, Going to create it.
We're going basically, you can say backup right now if you'd like, Um, and this will show you your public address, your encrypted key, in your private key.
And what I recommend, if you've taken my Cybersecurity class, you'll know how to do it.
If you haven't, I recommend giving multiple thumb drives that are encrypted.
So you have backup, But you are going to need to put this private key someplace.
And I'm not going to tell you how to do that in this video, because it's a longer process, but when I show you this private key, and you have to put a password in. I'm not going to use this one in my example. I create a different one.
This is going to be the private key that you have to store someplace, because if this computer decided to leave me, and I'd never see it again, I would never see these coins that are I'm about to do.
If you steak Neo gas, flamingo.
You can't use a ledger to do it, on the N three Network.
I wish she could, but you can't right now.
When the O three group decides to support Leger and the N three app, then we'll be able to put it on the ledger, But right now, they, You can't I've e-mailed them quite a while ago asking when, and of course, I haven't heard back, who knows.
But you need to store this private key someplace because the next process that we're going to do is going to not be on a ledger hardware wallet.
And if you decide to steak your like I said now, Neo, flamingo gas, whatever you're gonna have to use this while, you're not gonna be able to use the ledger.
So what we're gonna do is, I will come back, and I'll show you.
OK, I have created a new N three wallet, the private key.
And here it is, Well, you can tell that says neo N three video example, and it is on the N three main net.
So here is the wallet.
Now, you're asking yourself, how do we get it from N two to N three for flamengo?
I'm going to show you, we're gonna do is we're gonna move this aside and just to say, OK, yeah, we're gonna move this aside. But I am going to show you something.
Let me get back into the example.
And so, here is the neo N three upgrade.
This is on the main net, which is the two main that, as you remember, there's 5.9, 3 5 gas, and 100 flamengo. And that's what we're trying to convert over.
And you're saying to yourself right now, well, what about the Neon while it was on the Neon Wallach?
Well, it's the same thing.
I'm just different way of looking at things. So, what we're gonna do is, we're going to bring over this.
So, you can see the this is what we're using in this example before we have in 100 flamingo.
And the 5.935.
And you can view it either way in the O three.
Or the Neon wallet because you're using ledger. So, let's take that off to the side.
To close.
Neon Wallet, we're going to move this off to the side, And you have to go to a site called N E P.
Migration dot com, any P is the, it's like a ERC 20. They call it any P five. And I believe you need to go, take it to an EP 17.
So what you have to do is you have to first have your three wallet open and we're going to connect the wallet, We're going to select the ... three.
Off to the side, I will select the, oh, three, that has the, it's the version two.
So we're going to check that.
You're going to see that I have some flamingo OK.
So we're going to do Max.
And this is the address for the N two, and we need to select the N three address.
Well the reason why had you create the N three wallet address on the O three wallet, so many zeroes so many ends. You need to select that particular wallet.
So we're gonna click select and you can't see it right now.
But there's the popup and this is the wallet address for the one that we just created, which is the N three wallet and we're going to say select, and that pretty much is the, the address for it.
Let me get that back up so you can kind of see that.
Switch to it, Video example.
Just see, you know, I may have to go back, but it is the N seven G, then it's gonna give me next, it's gonna cost me one gas.
That's why we had to leave some gas in there.
Say Next.
You need to go in sign this leger.
OK, it's migrating This one probably took about 15 minutes or so. You can see that there was a hash.
If you Just click on the View details, that'll kind of show you what's going on down here. And this does have a hash And so that means.
FLN Is in the N three main net, which is the neo three? And this is where you can do whatever you want.
You can keep it here.
You can send it to your Leger.
You can't connect your leger here, so you have to go back to Boy, this, this really does get confusing.
Um, There is that wallet, you can send it.
There's your hearing none leger, Secured, N three Neil Wallet, you can keep it there or you can send it back to your leger secured N three wallet, here's the the Neo.
It didn't send the gas, But there would be gas, if you had it there. Remember, I didn't want to spend one gas, justice, and a couple of gas, And I was going to need some for the Neo. And, or for the flamengo conversion.
So, E, these are two different wallets.
You can send your flamengo from here, to this Wallet, if you want.
In fact, let me go ahead and do that.
So, I'm gonna get a copy.
This, I'm going to take my flamingo.
I don't have any gas, so I can't do it.
That is one of the issues. So if I do try to send it.
Do next, I do SLM, and I do 100% do review.
And I think it's going to scream at me. Yeah.
So, it is kind of complex, there's many moving parts to this.
I'm around Jetta Red's around, you can book some time with us, if you want, but here's the video That kinda throws you through the process and you can then convert your gas, you can send some gas over here, Then you can take this F LM and bring it back to the ledger secured and three wallet over here, and you'll all be happy as a clam. So that's it for now.
Have a great day.

0:12 In today's video, I'm going to go over how you can add liquidity to Flamengo Finance, and when you add that liquidity, you can then stake the coin that's created after you and liquidity. Unlike other platforms, when you stake on flamingo Finance, you need to add liquidity to a pool, and then y...

In today's video, I'm going to go over how you can add liquidity to Flamengo Finance, and when you add that liquidity, you can then stake the coin that's created after you and liquidity. Unlike other platforms, when you stake on flamingo Finance, you need to add liquidity to a pool, and then you need to stake that coin. You can't just steak flamingo directly or Neo or gas. And I'll walk you through the process. Some of the things, and I'm not going to cover our, how to convert your coins from neo two to neo three, I did a previous video on that.
The other thing that I'm not going to really cover is you need to do your own, due diligence on what it means to add liquidity to a platform.
What potentially in permanent loss means when you add liquidity to a platform. So, those are some of the things that you're going to need to understand. And I'm just going to show you the process of how to do that. The other thing that you also need to be aware of, is typically, I'm always about hardware wallet. Hardware wallet, hardware wallet is a hardware wallet, and everything. Well, right now, you can't use a hardware wallet. When you want to stake on flamingo, the new flamingo Finance, you can with the legacy, but the legacy you're not earning anything anymore. And that's why I'm doing this video.
So, what you're going to need to do is create a wallet on your own.
That was also in the converting neo to, to neo three video that I did, I briefly showed you how to create a wallet. That, unfortunately, is not leger protected.
Hopefully, O three will get their act together and get us a wallet that we can steak, that we can hold, and three neo version three in. But right now we can't.
So, we'll use this wallet as an example.
So the first thing you're gonna need to do is visit flamingo dot Finance, and I know it sounds strange, but you're gonna need to hit convert and convert. You can do many things. You can convert, You can wrap unwrap our liquidity, remove liquidity, steak, and Unstack, So everything really happens under convert. When you stake things, you can go ahead and see what the earnings are for that.
So, as an example today, what we're gonna do is go through, and I am going to steak the combination of gas and flamengo and nio and flamingo.
And I'll get started on that right away. So, their Pulse pretty good returns flamengo in Neo.
It's about 61% and flamingo in gas is a bit better at 88, sorry, 80% early, 81%. So, what we're going to first need to do is make sure that you have the coins in your wallet.
This be neo right here, I sent some over, and because Neo needs to be in whole numbers.
When I Unwrapped, the BTO, this was leftover the zero point sixty nine, the Have to Be Neo, cannot be zero point anything. It just needs to be whole number.
So, the first thing we'll do is what we're going to do is wrap ARR Neo.
So, we're going to click Rapp. Unwrap Click Wrap.
We're going to have 42, Neo.
And it's going to turn into 40 to be new.
We're going to go ahead and wrap.
It's going to ask us to approve it.
And it's going to go through and do that process.
one thing in preparing for this video that I found was Flamengo finance gets stuck a little bit. Meaning, it may not reflect what has happened in the wallet.
And so, to get around that, you can refresh the Flamengo Finance page, but the O three wallet has its own issues where we've done something, but to reflect.
It's changes, sometimes you have to go.
What I do is hit the gear and then come back. And, now, everything is been wrapped.
So, the next thing we're going to do after wrapping neo is we aren't going to go ahead and add some liquidity.
So, what we want to do is we're under convert.
Under wrap and unwrap, we will go down and say add liquidity. There are different pools that you can add liquidity for.
You can make a selection of what you want, the ones that I'm going to show today ARR Flamengo and Neil.
And flamingo and Gas, because flamingo in gas has a better return of 80% as compared to 61%.
I'm going to steak as much flamingo as I can with gas We're going to go ahead and select that.
I have 10 gas available to me, so, I'm going to click that, and I need to keep some gas so that I can do other transactions.
So, I'm just going to steak oil, not steak, add 10 to liquidity pool, and let's see if this, I kinda reflect, OK, it's saying to at least keep one.
So, we're gonna go ahead and add nine, which then would change how much flamingo is going to be added.
You have to add liquidity pairs in the same dollar amount on each.
So, if gas totaled $500 for nine, you'd have to have $500 in flamingo. And what the dollar value is, I'm not sure right now, but, you can see that FLN per gas is 16.31. And gas per FLN is zero point zero six one.
And with this, I am going to have zero, 3% of the pool, not that much, but this is how we add liquidity. After we add liquidity, we will have a third Coyne created.
So, there's FLN, sorry, FL M here, there's gas here and then when we steak, let's do this Let's get that back.
When we steak, then a third coin will be created sorry When we add liquidity, a third coin will be created, and that's the one that we will stakes, or we're gonna click add liquidity.
I have to approve it.
OK, there it is, we're gonna close that.
We will go check the wallet.
And we will see it, see, it kinda gets stuck a little bit. We will click on this.
We'll click back and it created another coin, FL P FLN gas.
So, the next step in this process is going to be adding the liquidity, but to a different pool, we're gonna add Flamengo and Neo together.
So, OK, this has happened before, and it's kind of weird, and what you need to do right now, it just sees zero point six nine one Vimeo.
That's what we started out with: zero point six nine one, but it's has changed, and it's not reflecting in the pages themselves. So, if you do experience that, what you can do is just refresh your page. I'm not sure if it's brave that's doing it. I'm not sure if it's the the the wallet itself not oh three, but flamingo Finance online what?
So we're going to say Connect Oh, three.
We're going to say, nope, we're trying to.
That was the wrong Wallet.
We're going to connect Wallet O three wallet, and video example.
And then we will go back to add liquidity.
We will select the pool of SLM Neo, now you see that Neo has gotten back up to what it should be, which is the 42.69, so we're gonna click all of that.
And, it will get use most of the flamengo, but, like I said before, it has to have 50, $50 value for each coin.
So, if B neo was one thousand, you'd have to put a thousand dollars worth of FLN. Here is the calculation down there, and my share of the pool is 0.006%. So, we're gonna go ahead and add liquidity.
We're going to approve it.
And it was successful. So we'll close that.
So we went through the different steps.
We got the coins into a wallet that we could access on flamengo finance, then we wrapped the neo, then we added liquidity, you can see here, we need to go back in and refresh, and that new coin, the F L M.
Vimeo, was added.
So we have everything that we've done, And now we need to go ahead and stake it. So we're going to go under Convert up here.
Down to stake.
We're going to select a pool.
We're going to do the FLN be Neo.
Right now it still shows zero. So we're going to have to do the refresh again.
Connect wallet.
Oh three, well, it.
You can do this.
With Nearline, I'm just showing you 103 because I feel more comfortable on earth III, because that's what I usually use. Because the O three, you used to be able to connect the ledger to it.
But until they fix that issue, you can't use the O three wallet and your ledger to secure the coins.
So what we need to do, we go to Convert, pulled down to stake.
We will select a pool.
Now we'll see that third coin the FPL, F L M B Neil.
61% return I'm going to steak all of them going to go ahead and steak: going to approve it again.
OK, It was successful since we're here. Let's go ahead and steak.
Again, we're going to select a pool, which is Gas, flamingo.
We're going to stake all available, stake.
OK, so we have three, we basically have gone through all the steps that we need to do. I'll show you the wallet again. The wallet we have to update, and just about everything should be out of it.
I did have 622 leftover FLN, which will just stay there and till I need it, and let's take a look at earn.
And this will kind of show you how much value and how many staked tokens you have.
And these are the total number, a flamingo, the total number of Neo, and the total number of gas.
But, what we want to do is, see, what we have on the, the, the Liquidity pair.
We can go ahead and click this little button, and it'll show that I have 42.69 Binya, And that is State, with 3061, SLM.
You can see that these values are pretty close, you know, within $4 or so, and then let's go down and look at the gas, that. So, you know, $48 in gas, and $48 in FLN.
And that is pretty much how you stake your flamengo gas and nio, and you'll be able to see that the calculations are right here.
It'll click up, you know, on the returns that you're getting. It looks like, on average, I'm going to earn about three dollars and 67% a day, with the price of FLN, being about 33%.
That's 11 FLN a day that I'll earn. When I want to claim them.
It's pretty easy because there's a big button up here that says, Claim.
I don't really have enough declaimed right now because it does cost a little bit agas.
That's why you need to leave some gas behind so that you can get these coins unstained, unwrapped, that type of thing, But we can come back later and show you how to claim and onstage. It's pretty much the opposite of what we just did.
Just watch this video in reverse and you unstack, then you remove liquidity and then you unwrap your Neo and, and things go back to back to normal.
one thing that I do want to share with you, that's kind of a little earlier in the video.
You saw that there was just a small percentage of be Neo because you, you have to restore it to whole numbers. Well, one of the things you can do with that extra B Neil is you could convert it into gas so that you're getting every little last bit or you can send that B Neo to someone else.
And you can add your two B and B, neo together and when it is over one, then you can unwrap it and claim one more. But, don't just leave the B Neo there.
If you plan and empty in your wallet, you know, convert it to gas, because gas, or you can convert it to Flamengo, because they do not have to be whole numbers.
You can have, No, no, you could turn it into something and take it with you. So, that's how you stake.
You can look at some of the analytics, if you want, how many tokens are added for liquidity?
What the the volume was in the last 24 hours, what are the fees?
So, just play around with flamingo dot finance, I've been using the three version for a couple of weeks now.
And I've been doing Flamengo Staking for quite awhile on the old, Legacy site. It does look quite a bit different.
Can go in there. I may have to load a different wallet. We'll have to see.
Go fault.
Let's see if I can.
Going to do that one this.
Yeah, I guess it's not going to really show me.
They are trying to close down this side of it.
So definitely, you know, when you steak, you really need to steak on the the three point aside.
That's all I have for now.
Have a great day.

0:00 In this video today, I wanted to go over something that I stumbled across because I was doing another video yesterday. 0:07 And I was trying to unwrap my B Neo, which is Neo on the N three network of Neal. 0:19 And I kept on running into an issue. 0:21 I could not unwrap my be Neo using ...

In this video today, I wanted to go over something that I stumbled across because I was doing another video yesterday.
And I was trying to unwrap my B Neo, which is Neo on the N three network of Neal.
And I kept on running into an issue.
I could not unwrap my be Neo using it through Wallet. So, I contacted Jenna Read, and I said, hey, can you, are you having the same issue? Is it a browser issue? For me? Is that a wallet issue? And he said, Hey, why don't you just send a couple be neo over, and I'll try it on the neo line. So, I sent some over, and he ran into the same issue.
So, you know, working together, we kind of figured out that, OK, well, it's probably not the O three wallet, it's probably not the Neo line Wallet, and it is probably Flamengo Finance itself.
So, I went on discord and contacted someone over at the Flamengo site, and this is what they said, you know, it's, there was a bug, and they needed to have someone over there fix it. This morning, I checked, and they they did fix it.
But what I learned, and it was kind of interesting that there is a site called where is it, here, neil berger dot IO.
So, I went to neo burger dot IO yesterday, and I did some unwrapping, and it seemed to work really well Didn't have any issues. So, what it showed to me was number one, flamingo Finance does have issues at times.
There are bugs, and it may not be you. It may be the website, and it also showed me that they're all there are alternatives to flamingo dot Finance for Unwrapping your coins. So, I'll go through and I'll show you a quick one. If 31, I'm going to unwrap. Let's unwrap five.
Actually, I guess they're calling it swap, which it kind of is. It is a swap from B Neo to Neo. So we're going to do a swap.
We're going to approve it.
I'm just going to wait for that.
And, It is done, The interesting thing is, let's take a look at the three want the other three volant shows that I did have.
there should be actually 16 That, OK 17, Yeah, because I I did a test before, and As we know, the O. three wallet doesn't necessarily like to refresh really guide that that well. But what I wanted to show you was if you have this in the future, this is a an issue that you can get around by going to another place. Now.
This was the transaction that showed when it did not function properly.
It was just eating my gas and not unwrapping even though on flamengo Finance, It said that it was successful.
You know, I'd get something like this, and it would say it was successful, and nothing would happen.
So what I do want to show you is this is what it looks like.
When it is successful, you'll get a bunch of things that, say, gas to Berger, Neo, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
As compared to the transaction hash, that just shows that you've sent out gas, and you've gotten nothing back. So, I just wanted to document this, show people that sometimes it's not use. Sometimes it's a website that you're visiting and the only way to resolve something like this is to let them know so that they can fix it on their side. So, just sum it up.
If you visit flamingo Finance and you can't unwrap something, you can go to Neil Berger and you can, really, it's, they call it a swap, which really is you're swapping one coin for another. ...
is a rapt version of Neo, and you can just do a swap from B Neo to New or neo to be new.
Excellent, have a great day.

0:02 In this video, I am going to show you how you can steak, um, flamengo, gas, neo just about any coin, that flamingo dot finance will steak. 0:16 But we're going to do it in a different fashion than I did in the previous video, where you have two coins that you currently own right now, and you...

In this video, I am going to show you how you can steak, um, flamengo, gas, neo just about any coin, that flamingo dot finance will steak.
But we're going to do it in a different fashion than I did in the previous video, where you have two coins that you currently own right now, and you want to add liquidity and stake it. And we're going to do something called Smart Steak. And so what you can do, you can visit flamingo dot Finance. You need to connect to Wallet.
In this case, it's going to be the three-d. wallet.
I'm going to go ahead and approve that.
And instead of convert, what we're going to do is we're going to do a smart stake, and so what we're going to Aye basically select First is: What Coyne do you want to use to steak, what, you know, where do you want to get the value, and use smart stake to put it in to a liquidity pair. And so, let me show you what I have.
Right. Now, I have some Neo gas and flamingo.
OK, and so, right now, I have some Flamengo, Neo and Gas.
I'm going to take all of my Neo.
All 41.
And I'm going to select a staking pool.
So, I could go with Flamengo and Neo Flamengo and USD T Flamengo and Rapped Bitcoin.
Well, what is going to be, you know, the best return, that may be, you know, your goal, or, your goal, is, I want to have some more gas.
I tend to not do the wrapped Ethereum or the wrapped Bitcoin.
So, I'm going to turn my neo and I'm going to turn it into FL M and gas.
With the 82.71 APY. So, I will select the pool, then I want to add the liquidity.
So, I'm taking one coin, Neo.
And basically turning it into two different coins.
Going to do that, it basically shows you, you're going to convert that amount of neo 41 neo into 93 gas and 1450 FLN.
Those are the same dollar value are really, really close.
And then a third coined, the F L P F L M, Gas will be created and I will get a total of 365, zero point zero three zero six, so than I do Smart Steak.
It's going to ask me to approve it.
I did talk to Jeddah Read about this and he said that he went through this. They compared the fees of doing it with Smart stake or doing it, where you have two coins that you come in with and you add liquidity that when he said the fees were virtually the same. But let's go ahead and take a look at this.
Transaction hash and see what kind of happens.
So, you see how, basically a lot happens, how things are taken turned into, you know, from the from the Neo, into Berger neo, into gas, into F L M.
So there's a lot going on for that particular smart stake. But let's go back. We'll say close, We will see that the Neo has kinda disappeared. Let's go back to the three wallet.
And I need to do a refresh.
The Neo has disappeared.
The amount is now in a third coin, that is State.
So let's just go ahead and look at earn.
And you can see that I have 1946 FLN staked against 93 gas.
And they're pretty close in dollar values 478 and 481.
And so we'll look down here, two, F L, M, and Gas.
And you'll see your value, and over time, this will change, and you will also see that right now.
I would earn about 2.17, uh, FL M a day sorry $2.2 and 17% a day in US. Dollars, which would equate to the 6.57 FL M currently in ... Price.
So that's pretty much it with Smart Steak, it's it's pretty easy You can, you know use any coin that is in the neo Network to put a sticky pair together and go from there, and have a great day.

0:10 In this video today, I'm gonna go over a few things. one is how to claim your F L M from the previous videos where you state them. And then what I'm going to do is show you how to unstack your coins when you're ready to do something else with them. So the first thing you're going to want to do...

In this video today, I'm gonna go over a few things. one is how to claim your F L M from the previous videos where you state them. And then what I'm going to do is show you how to unstack your coins when you're ready to do something else with them. So the first thing you're going to want to do is visit flamingo dot Finance, and you're going to click on the urn.
And once you do that, what connect the wallet, I use the O three F We're going to connect to the example, Connect, and there we go. We showed that I've earned 29 FLN from the last time, which is about $3 a day. And so, what we want to do is we want to hit claim.
Claim now, there's a little bit different interface that's interesting.
We need to approve it, I need to enter the passphrase.
Unfortunately, you can't yet do use the ledger to stick your coins. So, you have to have a regular O, three wallet that has a passphrase and a private key. So you'll see that we're going to claim this.
And it's been successfully complain, complained, claimed, we're going to complete, and there we go.
So now that we've claimed R F L M, So we will bring up the O three wallet, and we'll see that we just claimed that.
And we will go on to ..., so we're going to move this aside again.
And let's go ahead and do some on staking with that way. And so, we will go to convert.
We'll click Convert Down to stake.
We're going to select a pool, and we have it on two Pools, we have it on ..., and Neo, and we also have it on FLN and Gas.
So the first one we're going to do is Solomon Neo. We're going to say available, we're going to take everything we're going to unstick.
We're going to approve it.
I'm going to close As you see, we're gonna get the wallet. You got three wallet.
We're going to show that that's to a refresh, because O three doesn't easily just refresh itself.
So, you see that now, that's unstable, so it's in our wallet. It's the F L P F L M B, neo coin. So, we're gonna go back to here.
We're going to claim our sorry onstage, our other coin from the pool of gas NFL emme.
We're going to do all that's available. We're going to unstick it, and it's going to go through. We'll have to prove it again.
OK, there is that.
We'll go back to the three wallet.
Do a refresh on the ...
Wallet, and you'll see that that coin is now there, the SLP SLM gas.
Now, we have it unstable.
What do we do next while we want to be able to turn these back into neo, FL M, gas and FLN?
So what we need to do is go back to, under convert, you need to go to.
Remove liquidity.
And so what that's going to do is then take those coins out of the pool, because right now they're still in the pool. They're still adding liquidity.
It's really interesting, because it does not show it this. This site, I don't know if it's Brave browser or what it shows that there's no balance here, and there's no balance on gas. But there is So what we have to do.
So we have to refresh the browser itself. Then we go down and say, remove liquidity.
We need to first connect to the wallet or three wallet, we're going to say video example, connect, OK? So now we're going to remove liquidity.
We're going to select the pool, FLN, Vimeo. See, now it shows a balance before it didn't.
We're going to say all we're going to say, remove liquidity.
We're going to approve it.
And once that's done We're going to remove liquidity for Flamengo and Gas.
OK, let's go back to ...
Wallet Let's refresh You'll see that coin has gone and we have now some coins into FLN.
And, be new.
It's not into Neo yet, because B Neo is the wrapped version on flamingo Finance, Basically version three of the neo and three Blockchain.
So, now, we'll go back, we'll remove liquidity, this time, the pool we're going to do, see, it didn't refresh it, I don't know. Maybe they'll figure something out. I'm not gonna worry about it right now. We know how to get around that.
We're going to have available are going to remove liquidity.
We're going to need to approve it.
So what we need to do is go check the wallet again. Gotta refresh manually, OK. That's all disappeared.
So, you're asking yourself, Whoa, wait, what about B Neo? I want it to be Neo so I can send it out. You can send it out as a ... but that gets a lot of complex.
Depending on where you're sending it but what we're going to do is go back under convert again.
We're going to say, wrap unwrap. We're going to unwrap. And let's see, nope, does not have it. So, let's do it, once again.
We're going to refresh, we're going to say connect a wallet.
Oh, three, Make sure you connect.
The correct one, we are back under convert, Go, convert to unwrap.
Now, there's 42 So, we select that, it will turn into 42 Neo and I'll show you something else. When we're done here, we're going to say unwrap worked. on that, we're going to approve it.
It's adding the block.
OK, and it was successfully.
Let's just check that manually refreshing.
I'm interested.
OK, stop the video right there. And, spoiler alert, I was not able to unwrap B Neo.
And had to put a ticket in with the Flamengo finance people to see what might be going on. And they did verify that there was a bug they did fix it and I did test it this morning. But just know, I also did another video on how you can use a site called neo burger dot IO to unwrap your your ....
And, so, you know, just know that sometimes if you try and try and try and it doesn't work, it's not necessarily you. So, I just wanted to give you that information and we will continue with a brand new try to unwrap our bean meal.
OK, I am going to finish up the video that I started yesterday and then ran into the little issue that you just saw because it has been resolved and we're just gonna move forward. So, what you're gonna wanna do is, once again, connect your wallet.
Oh, three.
It is not going to connect.
It does this every now and then.
Don't know why.
Just do a refresh.
Connect the wallet.
Oh, three.
And, see, it does why, I don't, but you're not alone if that happens.
So, now, we're here.
We go to convert. If you're not there from convert, we pulled down. And, we say unwrap.
we're going to go to unwrap.
And just to show you, I did do some. They were all Rapped yesterday.
I went over to Test Niel Burger that worked.
and then, this morning, before this video, I went to Flamengo Finance and verified. yes, the fixed that they made, fix the issue.
So, that's why I have some already on Rapped but we're going to go to unwrap.
We're going to pick B, Neil.
All 24 we're gonna click on Wrap.
We're going to say approve.
And if it all works well.
We will be done, but let's check the transaction.
Let's see where it has to say, yeah, it did a whole bunch of.
Things, steps that took it from a wrapped to an unwrapped. Go back here, say, close.
This looks like it updated, so all 41. Let's go back to the wallet.
We have to refresh, head by hitting the gear, and go back up, and there we have it: there is some B neo left.
And the reason why that zero point forty seven was not put into Neo, is Neo has to be a whole number, can't be a fraction. So, there's a couple of things that you can do.
With this.
You can either send it to a friend who has Rapped Neo, and they can help unwrap it and kinda donate to them.
Or you can do something, which would be, Um, let's see, convert, and so let's select a token.
Let's go be Indio Let's turn it into You can turn FLN. You can turn it a gas, wrap near, whatever you want, Sorry, not wrap now.
Hum wrapped USD T, wrapped each Wrapped BTC rapped ontology but we're going to select gas.
We're going to convert it.
Oh, Sorry.
I need to select how many convert now?
Prove it.
And let's see what it does.
Supposedly, that was done. We can do, let's go ahead and check that.
Transaction, it looked like it, Ted, but let's go back.
And that looks the same. Let's go to the I three wallet.
OK, it did look like it took the binyam, turned it back into gas.
And so that is the final step for unwrapping yore, your staked coins, and hopefully this was very helpful for you. Thanks a lot. Have a great day.
