NORTONXIII Airdrop Extended

As the full distribution quota of NORTONXIII tokens remains unfilled, I am extending the airdrop period through the end of February. Get your tokens by filling out the form at the initial airdrop post.

Announcement: NortonXIII Airdrop!

In celebration of the emperor’s decree on currency and taxation, and the attendant launch of the NORTONXIII cryptocurrency token, the administration shall “airdrop” up to 113 awards (the “13” celebrates the reign of Norton XIII, by the grace of God emperor of these United States), of 1,859 NORTONXIIIs each (the Norton dynasty was established by Norton I in 1859).

The deadline for requesting your airdrop grant is February 14, 2022. Grants will be bestowed upon applicants in the order applications are received, to up to 113 applicants.

Note: In order to receive your grant, you MUST provide a wallet address for a wallet which can receive, store, and disburse Ravencoin ASSETS, not just the primary Ravencoin cryptocurrency. The only one we’re sure of at the moment is the official Ravencoin wallet, but see the list of possibilities here.

Due to staffing shortages, 1) those who are not among the grant recipients will not receive notification; 2) those who ARE among the grant recipients may or may not be notified other than by their wallet telling them they’ve received NORTONXIIIs; and 3) the disbursements may take a little time.

To register for the airdrop, fill out the form below:

Decree on Currency and Taxation

To all who shall see these presents, greetings.

From my dissolution of the former government of the United States on April 1, 2013, it naturally follows that the legal tender and currency laws of that regime stand repealed. And, per this decree, they are hereby replaced with … nothing.

Well, sort of. My regime has undertaken the creation of a cryptocurrency token on the Ravencoin blockchain, the NORTONXIII. It’s there for those who care to use “the official currency of the Norton dynasty,” but henceforth the people of the United States shall enjoy complete freedom to use whatever forms of money they find useful, including but not limited to commodity-based money and cryptocurrency.

Yes, even including notes from the Federal Reserve banking cartel, which is free to compete but no longer enjoys its former monopoly privilege and may want to pack up and get the hell out of Dodge before the holders of bonds issued by the former US Treasury realize the quality of the funny money they’re to be repaid in compared to better offerings and procure pitchforks, barrels of tar, and feather pillows for a reckoning.

As for money … well, that’s all. Have at it, have fun, and don’t take any wooden nickels. Unless you value wooden nickels, that is. This regime will not regulate the market’s creation or the people’s voluntary exchange of money, full stop. The coming court system will likely take a dim view of fraud, but as you’ll learn in another coming decree, that court system will be panarchist in nature and not beholden to the imperial administration.

Now, to taxation. There are actually two ways to put this:

One is that the United States no longer has any.

The other is that this regime does and forever shall run entirely on the basis of voluntary contributions and free exchange.

If you wish to donate to, or finance on negotiated terms, a government project, you may, and if you wish to think of that as “paying taxes,” well, it’s a free country (this time for real). But you’re not required to do either of those things under threat of any penalty whatsoever.

The administration shall, as time goes on, offer entirely voluntary mechanisms through which the people of this grateful nation may fund the maintenance of the emperor’s person and estate, and such projects as I deem it necessary to undertake (if I want an aircraft carrier, there may be a bake sale).

Decree on Sanitation

To All Who Shall See These Presents, Greetings.

Having rescinded all decrees issued between Inaugural Decrees Part 1 and Part 2, I hereby re-issue the original Decree on Sanitation. Said decree has proven so beloved of the people that in the intervening years I’ve noticed it posted in many locations throughout my domain. Therefore:

Be it decreed that henceforth employees must wash hands before returning to work.

Given under my hand the 2nd day of April in the year 2013 CE; re-issued this 28th day of January in the year 2022 CE,
