Am I delusional for not wanting to put ads on my price comparison website?

Hello guys,

I’m currently working on a niche price comparison site. I see most price comparison sites have ads in them, but my main focus is creating a website that is completely unbiased and I don’t want to put any ads on my website. I’m even thinking about not putting ads on my Youtube channel.

Considering that my only income would be commission that is around 1-4%, am I delusional thinking that the website can be profitable without ads?

My website will compare prices of computer electronic products such as CPU, ram, monitors, etc.

I don’t want to get ahead of myself but I have some great contents ready to be published as soon as the website is completed and I expect around 100k visitors on the first month.

Let me know what you guys think. And let me know if you need more info about the website and I will provide it as much as I can.

Thank you.

Chinese spy defects to Australia, alleging election interference and cybercrimes

A purported agent of the Chinese intelligence service is seeking asylum in Australia, bringing with him explosive allegations of widespread interference in political affairs in that country, Taiwan and elsewhere. He claims also to have run a cyberterrorism campaign against supporters of Hong Kong independence.

Wang “William” Liqiang indicated to Australian news outlet The Age that during a deep-cover assignment intended to manipulate the 2020 presidential election in Taiwan, he decided to defect and expose the Chinese networks from abroad.

In addition to The Age, Wang spoke with The Sydney Morning Herald and 60 Minutes; the various outlets appear to be planning a broader release of the contents of his interviews on Monday.

Wang has reportedly explained in detail the inner workings of a Hong Kong-listed company called China Innovation Investment Limited, which the government has allegedly been using as a front to infiltrate various universities, political groups and media companies.

He claims to have personally been involved in the infamous kidnapping of Lee Bo and other booksellers in Hong Kong whose disappearance prompted widespread protests.

He also says that he helped direct a “cyber army” to dox, attack and otherwise harass Hong Kong’s independence protestors, and that he was working on establishing one to affect the 2020 election in Taiwan.

Operations in Australia and other countries were implied but not detailed in initial reports of Wang’s defection. He is reportedly currently at an undisclosed location in Sydney pending formal protections from the Australian government.

More information is expected to be revealed on Monday by the outlets Wang spoke to, so stay tuned.


Help needed: HitBTC Restricted

A friend of mine was recently locked out of his HitBTC account and I'm looking for any suggestions or advice you all may provide. Here's his situation:

I thought I could use HitBTC without verification on an old account I had if I withdrew under 1 BTC. I requested a withdrawal and now they are making me go through KYC. I’m from the US and according to the TOS it’s not allowed to be from the USA but they do let you withdraw according to the TOS. Should I go ahead and submit my USA info? Any information on how to remove the limitation and withdrawal especially as a US resident would be greatly appreciated.

ArcoLinux Eases the Way for the Arch-Curious User

ArcoLinux is a big change for the better for anyone switching from another Linux distro to the Arch infrastructure. ArcoLinux previously was known as „ArchMerge Linux.“ It is a rolling update distribution based on Arch Linux, but it offers an unusual learning path to make assimilating into the Arch architecture a more pleasant experience. ArcoLinux is a continuation — albeit taking a slightly different direction — of ArchMerge Linux and its family line. ArchMerge Linux was a spinoff of another breakaway distro, ArchLabs Linux.
