Ethan says nobody is getting an apology from him, yet he apologizes in the title of the video.

What even is sarcasm

Oh, I didn’t really see the title as sarcasm, but I could kinda see that now.

I made a presentation in graphics cards and how they work including branding/pricing and what you should look for in one for school, when i get home I’ll dm you a link

Awesome, thank you so much!

The others already answered on the "can I upgrade" part.

I'll answer to "what the hell is the Intel HD 4600". While this is a "graphics card" in the sense that it processes graphics, it's the integrated graphics chip that's part of your CPU, that Intel bundles with it.
Its purpose it to be a low-power chip that will display graphics and handle very lightweight GPU-accelerated tasks (decoding a video for example). It's generally far weaker than a dedicated graphics circuit with its own memory, though of course there are some that are very weak too.

It's certainly not built with gaming performance in mind in any case, and as such will run 3D games with extremely poor performance on the lowest settings and at very low resolution. You can certainly play some very old 3D games or some 2D pixel-art games with it, though.

Since this is all what some people have, they still try to run 3D games with those integrated graphics chip, so you can have an idea of the performance it'll get in Fortnite, for example. Though for whatever reason, Intel used the same name for the iGPU of their desktop and laptop CPUs for the 4th gen, so googling/Youtubing for "Intel HD 4600 Fortnite" returns results mostly for desktop CPUs, in which the iGPU is far better.

Wow, thank you very much for this response. Is there a good resource for someone who knows literally 0 about computer/laptop hardware to learn more. I feel like it’s fairly important knowledge to have.

Thank you again.

Is this an official loopring video? How can they claim that trading will be faster. Trading on a centralized exchange is nearly instant, trading through a decentralized protocol relies on the blockchain it is operating on. For ethereum, it will not beat the trading times of most centralized exchanges. Everything else in the videos looks great, but that seems a little misleading.

Bigvardaddy 1 point

You have to send your coins to the centralized wallet before you can trade, in the case of Bitcoin around an hour.

MaxedBent 1 point

Yea but each trade in the exchange is instant, which is important to a lot of people. Not the same for loopring

That sounds like an absolutely awful way to live

This also helps with drowsiness during the day. I’ll have my window of eating after my classes, now I rarely fall asleep in class. I’ve found eating lunch then going to class can knock me out if the class isn’t interesting. It also helps me eat healthier, as I used to snack on absolute shit at night, but now I just don’t eat at night.

If you are interested, you can start with an 8 hour eating period 16 hour fasting period, and see if it’s the thing for you. I judged my friends for doing it, but decided to give it a try and I love it.

And like another commenter said, it’s not the end of the word if you break a fast to be social or something. You can pick it right back up.

I’m a big walton fan, but maybe a lot/most of the “fud” is well deserved. Two days after their twitter snafu, which put a bad taste in most everybody’s mouth, they announce a huge partnership. Then a day later, after hardcore Walton fans made a fool of themselves talking Walton up, they delete their partnership tweet possibly topping how bad they looked with the giveaway. I sold my Walton immediately after they deleted that tweet, I may or may not buy back in later.

It’s important to take off the rose tinted glasses and look at the project you are invested in. I still believe in the idea, but something funky is going on with their team, at least their PR team.

keysersoze74 26 points

And that is why you left and that’s ok. Their PR is not going to be their legacy, and that is why I stay.

MaxedBent 3 points

Great point, that’s why I hope to buy back in later at some point once this blows over. PR is important though and walton’s doesn’t reflect well on the team.

Look at my post history, do a search for V whatever the fuck that is, I literally have no clue what that coin is. I own 466 walton.

MaxedBent 1 point

Completely with you. I love Walton as well, but Jesus, this past week has not been good for Walton. This sub needs to stop blaming it on fud and just take the small loss for now, hopefully we will get some good answers from the ama.

This is what gives crypto a bad rep

MaxedBent 9 points

Making a deal with alibaba to bring real life solutions brings crypto a bad rep? Walton is obviously terrible with western PR, but I’m pretty sure this recent deal cements themselves as a legitimate project, if the other multiple partnerships/deals didn’t already.

HelloIamGoge 2 points

So about that deal with alibaba..

MaxedBent 1 point

Yea lol thanks, I sold at 21 after that. Oh well... may buy in later.

because that is much better for current investors ;)

MaxedBent 1 point

To be fair, the idea is to add inflation to keep a relatively stable currency. It’s not a secret, if you are “invested” you should know and expect that.

Throw4wwww 6 points

1% inflation has nothing to do with what we're talking about

How does eating only only 3 hours a day affect your pooping? Serious question.

MaxedBent 3 points

Not op, but I fast similarly . I poop everyday at the same time every morning. Occasionally if I didn’t get everything out in the morning I’ll have another quick session later in the day. But nothing is affected, at least for me, in terms of size/consistency/etc.

I’m fairly familiar with MEMS, and I’m confused as to why you believe MEMS could compete with wtc. MEMS isn’t a necessarily new/emerging technology.

It could potentially be interesting to integrate a MEMS device into an rfid sensor of some sort to improve wtc sensors, but off the top of my head I can’t think of anything game-changing. For most MEMS use cases you would also need a power source and some way to process signals.

But it is also my understanding that there are a couple IC experts on their team, which has a lot in common with MEMS fabrication/processing. So I wouldn’t be too worried.

Oh yeah, because corporations passed all that wealth down when the economy was good. Go lick boots somewhere else.

MaxedBent 5 points

He is right, small and medium businesses will be hurting just as much, if not more than large corporations. Its certainly debatable whether money trickles down from tax cuts, but it’s not debatable when businesses lose money/have to pay more for services, jobs are cut everywhere.

If you plan to move your wtc to MEW I would recommend buying on kucoin. They have a .1 withdrawal fee, while binance has a .4 withdrawal fee. Binance is definitely a better exchange, but I can’t justify shelling out .4wtc to withdraw, so my wtc is stuck on binance.


Yeah I read on teh differences in withdrawal fees. When I was signing up for kucoin, their 2FA required google authenticator I think. I couldn't just use my phone as a text msg. I have some problems with google authen in the past, so I thought it would be safer to eat the fees just to be safe with my keys. I'm not 100% sure about it though.

MaxedBent 3 points

Yea you do you, whatever you feel safest, I just wanted to throw it out there. But if you are going to immediately transfer funds, then 2fa won’t really matter in the end.

Tokens are needed to validate transactions and will earn you transaction fees. If you earn alot of fees, price is higher.

MaxedBent 1 point

So the tokens are only of value to people who wish to mine/validate transactions? Do you need any special hardware to validate transactions?

instyle9 8 points

Nope, you dont need any fancy hardware at all. Just a computer thats connected to the internet. If you dont want to run a node yourself you can join a staking pool.

MaxedBent 2 points

Awesome, thank you for the information. Sounds very similar to loopring. I’ll have to look into it further.

ETH would have to have a MASSIVE market cap several times that of bitcoin to be valued a higher price than btc.

Not if bitcoin continues to drop in value.
