Dog, you have to differentiate bitcoin from the rest of cryptocurrencies... bitcoin was the first generation, basically a means to send money around. Etheruem is the second generation, it still can be used to transfer funds around but it also enables smart contracts (protocols built on top of the ethereum blockchain). Projects on these kind of blockchains can allow things like this:





This tech will solve a ton of current problems. Anything that requires tracking or data sharing will be made more secure and efficient. There will be next gen blockchains that won't use as much resources and will provide a wider range of possibilities... and all of this is made possible by raising funds through cyrpto markets and attracting bright minds and investors in this sphere.

BTW avant de t'investir completèment dans le mining, tu dois savoir que les frais pour hydro commercial and résidentiel sont pas les mêmes.... c'est pas tant plus rentable ici qu'ailleurs au niveau commerical, de ce que j'ai entendu dire.

Oui, C'est 0.08 CAD au commercial, mais Hydro veut descendre ça en bas du prix résidentiel, entre 0.03 CAD et 0.04CAD.

Aussi tu semble défendre la technologie blockchain pour parler de crypto monaie, en fait le blockchain va marcher pour plein de technologies, mais ne pourra pas suivre la crypto monaie, à cause de son incapacité à faire des micro transaction et le temps d'attente avant le traitement des plus petites transaction. Tangle n'a aucun frais et a une capacité illimité de traiter les transactions, aucun frais de mining. Même scrypt et neoscrypt sont mieux pour ça.

Tangle est une cération d'IOTA, une "cryptomonnaie" allemande qui a amassée 3000btc pour son lancement... ce que je dis c'est que toutes ces petites start up font avancer la technologie, mais pour se financer elles utilisent la distribution de tokens qui peuvent être tradées contre du btc ou du eth... après, le fait d'avoir des tokens d'IOTA te donne aucun droit légal vs avoir des actions d'une compagnie cotée en bourse. Ça devient en gros un outil spéculatif, mais si tangle utilise des tokens IOTA pour fonctionner et que tu as une chiée d'IOTAs dans ton wallet, ben tu es un heureux millionnaire qui fait avancer la technologie et pas la porno infantile.

IOTA est +621020% depuis son lancement. Je voulais vraiment en acheter à 0.50$ parce que la technologie semble vraiment prometteuse mais le titre est pas tradé sur les platformes que j'utilise et je voulais pas m'ouvrir un autre compte sur une autre platforme juste pour ca. Anyway...

Je crois que c'est vraiment risquer de se lancer dans la spéculation comme tu le fais, ça peut payer j'imagine, mais moi je voulais juste me faire une entrée régulière d'argent, pas mal certain que je vais revendre la machine bientôt.

Si j'avais à investir ça serait dans Iota.

J'étais convaincu à 2500$ que le cours du btc allait monter. Je voulais simplement faire un profit rapide et cash out mon investissement initial et trader le reste comme de l'argent gratuit. Ce que j'ai fait. Mais j'ai gardé mon profit dans des tokens qui ont perdu 80% de leur valeur quand le btc est passé de 3000$ à 10000$ en un mois et demi. Aoir gardé mon profit en btc, j'aurais fait plusieurs 10aines de milliers de dollars. Meh... Anyway, je te suggère vraiment pas de trader.. c'est vraiment pas si simple et c'est en gros du gambling.

So, everybody here left with the wondrous mental image of mumu having a magical computer plugged in 24/7 and eating up all his electricty and emitting loud noises and blinking linghts as it continuously churns through massive amounts of data to solve complex equations to be the first to get to an answer because that gets mumu a Prize?

This crypto currency mining nonesense has got to rank up there in terms of stupid human endeavours. Crypto mining apparantly uses more energy than most countries on earth. Like, current mining uses energy at about the same level as countries the size of Hungary or Ireland. Think about that! Lunacy! And any further ´discoveries’ will just be more ressource onerous. Most of the mining is done in China, so you have dirty industries like coal used to power most of this. All this to encrypt fake money.

Holy.bloody.fucking.hell.

« I have a wonderful idea for a fake digital currency. To ensure its integrity, it will be based on a process that, to make the currency usable widescale, will consume all of the world’s computing and energy ressources and we will all die. But, theoretically, it works. Now, get to it! »

I don’t care. In my mind it’s an ominous looking machine operating in a dark corner of your appartment, with nothing but its loud crunching noises and red blinking lights to tell it is there. The squirrels are scared of it. Even you dare not approach it anymore. You are unsure of whether it has acquired sentience.

In the next couple of months, ethereum will be releasing a Proof of stake model (in stead of a Proof of work, computation) which means not all the transaction have to be validated on the chain like it is now. This will make energy consumption about the equivalent of a couple of dozens of desktops for the whole system that now requires as much energy as Cyprus. It's also going to release a major upgrade for scalability. Most of the cryptos will go down that route. The positive applications of the blockchain will vastly outweigh the negatives...

I certainly hope there is a paradigm shift in how these things are made and transactions validated. You can’t have a process that calls for exponentially more energy consumption when it is already using the same energy as medium sized countries (!!!!) at sub-scale levels. Wtf is that if not a pyramid scheme?

Not that I want to impinge on your artistic freedom, macbeth, but I think mumu makes a more compeling character to base this story on than AD does.

Single guy, mid thirties, non pedo, has an ominous machine churning and blinking in a corner of his appartement, 24/7. It’s been there for a number of years now, he is simply afraid to approach it to try to unplug it. The machine gives a vibe that it wants to be left alone to do its own thing, churning and blinking. We are unsure of what it does anymore. Is it still mining bitcoins? Has it gone on to other endeavours? We just sense that we should probably not try to fuck with it. So it stays there. Churning and blinking. Day and night. Month after month. Year after year. In a tense co-existence with our hero, who just keeps feeding it huge amounts of electricity (roughly the same as that used by Albania). Visitors come. Dates come. They notice the machine. Ask questions. Our hero changes the subject. The machine stays there. Churning and blinking.

Fin.

A 20 minute short on this should win you an oscar, I think.

A bitting metaphor for the failings in human relationships! The store, by remaining anonymous, becomes a place holder for the persons in our lives that have shut us out. Perhaps it referes to a cold, distant mother. The store, like the mother, provides the nutrients and warmth needed by the child. But the store is closed. The child went to the store, but the store was unavailable to the child. Perhaps like the mother was unavailable to the child. Emotionally closed to the child. We are left feeling the cold the child feels as he reaches for the store, only to find it « closed ». The child turns back. He is alone in the world.

Brilliant, Greg!

It would be a pyramid scheme if it was intended to be that way. It never was, it's just like this because they haven't yet found a better way. But if you believe that blockchain application to the power grid could increase it's efficiency by 15% globally, it's really a very small price to pay down the road. And that's just electric energy, but it will have the same effect on transportation, medical industry (think of medical records, cost Qc $2bn and it barely works), waste management and what not. And all of it is possible because someone invented Bitcoin...

I will now resume posting about blockchain technology as I need to start posting about Kierkegaard and Rawls.

Kirk's take on the media is pretty insightful tho.. basically says that the continuous flow of information we're subjugating ourselves to is keeping us in the aesthetic world of memes instead of engaging seriously in local endeavors like the revolution or love for Jesus christ.

We are working on a crypto-currency-mining pedophile, yes.


Not that I want to impinge on your artistic freedom, macbeth, but I think mumu makes a more compeling character to base this story on than AD does.

Single guy, mid thirties, non pedo, has an ominous machine churning and blinking in a corner of his appartement, 24/7. It’s been there for a number of years now, he is simply afraid to approach it to try to unplug it. The machine gives a vibe that it wants to be left alone to do its own thing, churning and blinking. We are unsure of what it does anymore. Is it still mining bitcoins? Has it gone on to other endeavours? We just sense that we should probably not try to fuck with it. So it stays there. Churning and blinking. Day and night. Month after month. Year after year. In a tense co-existence with our hero, who just keeps feeding it huge amounts of electricity (roughly the same as that used by Albania). Visitors come. Dates come. They notice the machine. Ask questions. Our hero changes the subject. The machine stays there. Churning and blinking.

Fin.

A 20 minute short on this should win you an oscar, I think.

Did you fellas know Shaw averages almost ninety seconds more a night than Gallagher? Someone ought to efficiently swat Julien's blockhead with a chain. Am I correct, fellas?
Also, let's keep this thread about Galchenyuk's on-ice performance, development and value and NOT bring in his personal life or race.

All I learned during this bacc is how to find low profile publications and slightly plagiarize their contents.

I'm actually selling my asci, going for feathercoins as it is asci proof and is actually paying close to mining litecoin. Litecoin is going to be taken over by China's mining farms in March, no money will be made anymore, much like bitcoins.

If you want to mine bitcoin you are going to spend about 2200USD to get the machine, will make about 400USD per months. That's if you pre-ordered them in advance and waited for the release. If you want to buy them on amazon or anywhere else it's going to go around 4000USD to even 5000USD.

If want to mine litecoin, it's about the same price but you make around 500USD per month, though the crypto currency won't reach high value like bitcoin can.

The thing is that the mining power of those two is going up very fast and your machine could be outdated by mid-2018, you'll have to wait for a better machine to come out and pre-order it or else pay a crazy price.

With asci proofed crypto currency you can actually mine with gaming or VR graphic card, because they won't make super computer for it. So you only pay the real price of the GPU on the market and you just build a barebone computer with very strong GPU on it. The chance of the money gaining value is very little, but if you consider it as extra month allowance, you make about 350USD per month and never pay crazy price for the hardware. If you have a lot of those coins and they go from 0.20USD to 2usd in the span of a month you can actually go from having a 3000usd wallet to 30000usd wallet. You can hold on to it or sell it right now, might never happen though.

Litecoin and bitcoins are going upward so you are almost certain to make a little capital gain, but the game is going fast.

Also you could make a super silent computer, put it under a desk at work, next to the router, plug it in and don't even pay for the electricity.
