Almost five months later, my $1Q9X token has finally launched. As promised, I’m gifting you an allotment of $1Q9X as thanks for pre-ordering The Metaverse Handbook and believing in my idea to launch a social token, even when the vision for the token wasn’t entirely clear.

If you don’t recall, this article will refresh your memory: I wrote a book. That book rewards you with crypto.

The rest of this email will cover the plan for $1Q9X as well as how many tokens you’ll be receiving. But there’s one action item I need from you that I don’t want to get lost in the length of this email:

Respond to this email with your crypto wallet address, so that I can send you the $1Q9X tokens you’ve rightfully earned.

If you don’t have a crypto wallet or don’t know what your wallet address is, then please refer to this resource – – which will answer these questions for you.

That said, let’s get into the purpose of $1Q9X.

Solving the Youth Reading Crisis

Reading hasn't had its fair share of innovation. As a result, 66% of all students in the US cannot read at their grade level. By allowing our youth to fall behind in reading, we are allowing them to underachieve.

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” – President Harry S. Truman

Literacy is not just about getting through school. It affects how we progress as people, how we grasp new ideas, and how we communicate with others. Literacy is the basis for achievement in all areas of adulthood, from professional to personal. And with the well of readers drying up, we are at risk of being deficient in the next class of leaders that will usher in advances for humanity.

As an author, I naturally care a lot about this problem. However, I’m aware that reading is boring. Illiteracy afflicts us because there are more interesting things to capture our attention. $1Q9X exists to change this problem.

How $1Q9X Can Change Reading

1Q9X is tackling the youth illiteracy epidemic by fundamentally changing how reading is experienced. We are building a collective of great minds to help us reimagine the reading experience beyond the book and into mixed-reality formats.

Reading needs fresh ideas. And we feel the best way to pursue this massive problem is by building a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization).

DAOs are great for organizing people across the world for a common purpose. The $1Q9X DAO will be a place for idea-share and experimentation. A place where anyone can share their ideas on how to make reading exciting and fresh.

We’ve seen the blockchain completely reinvent video game models through blockchain gaming, so why can’t the same be true for reading?

1Q9X is ushering in the era of blockchain-based reading experiences. And you’re now part of this organization.

How Many Tokens You’re Receiving

After much deliberation, I’ve decided that I’ll be sending you 200 $1Q9X tokens per copy of The Metaverse Handbook you pre-ordered. As a gesture of appreciation for believing in this project when nobody else was, this is approximately equal to the cost of the book. So thank you again for being the earliest supporter of $1Q9X.

But that’s not all you’ll be receiving.

I want you to be more than just a token holder. I also want you to be able to participate in the $1Q9X DAO and play a role in how this project evolves. Because this isn’t quite enough tokens needed to access the DAO, I’ll be creating and sending you a special POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol) that will grant you admission into the DAO. Think of the POAP as a backstage pass.

There’s no need to do anything extra to receive this POAP. As long as you send me your crypto wallet address, I can send it to you.

Having said that, if you’d like to purchase more $1Q9X tokens or let others know about this project, the next token sale will take place on September 21st, 2022.

How to Get Your $1Q9X Tokens

There’s not much effort required from you to get your allotment of $1Q9X tokens. Just one action item.

Please respond to this email with your crypto wallet address. And I will send you the $1Q9X tokens within 48 hours.

If you don’t have a crypto wallet or don’t know what your wallet address is, then please refer to this resource – – which will answer these questions for you.

I’m looking forward to sending you the $1Q9X tokens and making a difference in youth literacy with you.
