How to do DeFi in ~7 steps down the rabbit hole
Over the past week around the start of November 2021, I have decided to learn a little bit more about the current state of decentralized finance (DeFi), with a focus on the various blockchain “features” to get a better pulse of the current state of the market. I have been somewhat invested in a few cryptocurrencies that I was not very familiar with but they SEEMED to have decent staking rewards (more on this later) at more that what a bank would give – on Kraken up to 20% for Kava as an example (and it was not required to claim any rewards; restaking seemed to happen automatically with the exception of Ethereum, also more on this later).

A temperature/humidity sensor will monitor conditions polling every n minutes and a minimum/maximum can be set. Upon trigger of a low temperature event, a relay will trigger heat. A high threshold will trigger a fan, and optionally an automatic window opener.

Today I switched to Rogers’ newest service, ROGERS IGNITE 250u, why the all-caps is beyond me. That is unlimited usage tier, with 250mbps download, and 20mbps upload bandwidth. It is $69.99 for 3 months, then $95 after that. I was unable to use my existing retention discount of 25% in addition to the 3 month discount, but it worked out for me to use my retentions discount as it lasts longer.
Here are the details:
ROGERS IGNITE 250u
Speeds up to:
- 250Mbps DOWNLOAD
- 20Mbps UPLOAD
But I am actually receiving significantly more on the download end, at 320Mbps!

TLDR; Rogers internet 25% off “Extreme Plus” (45Mbps/4Mbps/150GB) for $69 per month.
Let me start out by saying that for the past year there has been ‘provisioning’ going on with Bell Canada preventing me from getting any service other than Rogers Cable internet.
I signed up 8 months ago for a student promotion for 8 months no contract:
25Mbps Download; 2Mbps Upload; 160GB Cap; $52 after tax
This just expired and to my shock the price went up to $90. (I am rounding to the nearest dollar)
Here were my options (after calling Bell who informed me that they are still provisioning) Continue reading Rogers Retention Ridiculousness
