HAHAHAHAHA because you don't like rap!

Can I like rap but think 50cent is a wannabe thug rapper?

Never said you were a shill (and for what it's worth, I didn't downvote your comment). I just think the whole "decentralisation" argument is incredibly confused, and too often finds itself used as an excuse to oppose corporate involvement in Bitcoin, which is necessary if Bitcoin is to make the shift from an experiment to a global payment system.

As far as I can see, there are two forms of decentralisation that Satoshi raises in the white paper: (1) the POW blockchain is a “distributed” timestamp server, meaning no central authority mints new coins and processes transactions; (2) in mining honest nodes must maintain more than than 50% of hashing power to guarantee network security. According to the model, both of these forms of "decentralisation" are needed to ensure the security and usability of peer to peer electronic cash. If any single party controls the minting of new coins and or which transactions will and will not be processed by the network, then Bitcoin wouldn't be that different to the current fiat-banking system.

Now I can't see how Jihan Wu threatens either of those two forms of decentralisation. And if he did, it would mean Bitcoin is wrong about its presuppositions and therefore broken at the most fundamental level, not that Jihan is some terrible actor who deserves our condemnation.

Thanks for the solid reply. I don't understand why some people think decentralization is magically defeated by someone getting ~10% control.

You’re welcome! I agree. I really think that the problem is too many people think decentralisation means every nerd having a copy of the blockchain running on their computer in the basement. But this is simply not realistic for a global payment system and never was the intention.

I like to counter that even 2-3 parties can act decentralized, let alone the dozens of mining pools filled by hundreds of large scale miners and thousands of small miners and nodes

$2 USD would be a high cost. Aphria is at $0.96 CAD to produce and $1.56 CAD to grow, package, sell, and ship. All of the big guys are going to be below $2 USD by a substantial margin.

That sounds about right.

I mean, you can grow 500-1000g at home in 1year using about 600w of light (~$700/yr at residential rates) and $500 initial setup.

Scaled up and with additional overhead costs, I'd think anything > $2.50/g can't compete longterm

I once helped a friend get his (dipshit) Gf a fake id.

We went to the place downtown and she filled out the form. We went to the cashier and got a long strange look.

Turned out she put 100% her real info (including underage birthdate) on the form, thinking it was step1, and that the fake is was somehow step2.

According to the vast majority of current Christian doctrines, all of them. The whole point is that no matter how much you fuck up Christ gives his grace to you and absolves you of your sins. If you accept his gift of grace that is. It doesn't make much sense, whether you call it mystery or bs.

I think you're right. A 12th hour declaration of faith at one's deathbed is sufficient to undo a life of wrongs iirc.

It's not as clear whether god/Jesus can tell when a sinner lies through his teeth that he is changed, if it brings superficial peace to his loved ones as they enter mourning

  • lowered brightness and saturation on the suit to make it darker and more grey/less blue
  • reduced shine on suit to give it more of a matte finish (as opposed to glossy)
  • increased boot height (and added some spikes)

It just goes to show both drivers were unable to properly use an HOV lane. One in it illegally and the other a dipshit who doesn't understand solid lines

One was a capacity infraction and one was negligent and dangerous driving if you ask me.

Oh I agree that they are totally different degrees of bad driving. Riding in the wrong lane doesn't kill people; that requires a complete failure to follow road rules.

However, there is a small sort of irony(?) that someone improperly using the HOV lane became the victim.

Is that a good price? It's about 10x the specs of an antminer s9 and includes PSUs and breakers

IMO, not really at the current moments. A 14 TH S9 with power supply is $794 on Bitmain. This new miner is exactly 11x more powerful in terms of hash power, yet it costs 12.5x more. In addition, this new miner pulls 12.5x more watts than the S9 does. So as far as I can tell, buying 11 S9s is better in every single way, but if I missed anything please let me know!

see more

The preassembly and power breakers add about $500-1000 in value, at least to someone who cares about rapid deployment and can tie into the power connectors (can't tell if it's a pair of 50A@240V hookups or something a bit different (perhaps a 3phase@20A@208V))

No worries, it was one of those 20second ideas worth trying:)

Extremely interesting. I've always thought that Jihan was well spoken and insightful. Regardless of whether forking was 'right', his motives are public and reasonable.

His actual motives are only his. But he does tend to make reasonable arguments and business decisions imo.

As a businessman he has done spectacularly. A LOT of people (and I mean a shit ton, including myself) tried and failed to get Asic hardware off the ground. Companies like knc, bfl, and asicminer just couldn't keep pace with the r&d that bitmain invested in.

Even spondoolies couldn't keep up, which was a true shame.

The most painful way to go out. Being the first kill the no skin has ever gotten and coming 2nd place to him. You know they are extra shook when they just stand there doing nothing after they win

see more

My recent win included an epic fight with the 3rd place guy (only my ~2nd kill of game), and then another minute of following the storm wondering where the next guy is, probably some paid skin with a fort up on the mountain with my luck.

Nope. Found a no skin pickaxing a tree out in the open. Didn't even look my direction until after 2-3 AR rounds smacked him. Didn't get a single shot off.

The octaminer rigs definitely interest me, as I already have a rack based setup. The thing I never understood with them is where the PSU goes!?

Sits beside it on a shelf basically.

Or octaminer sells a great looking case (that's not cheap, and has some loud fans) that has psu mounting bracket and allows professional datacentwr/colocation racking

Consider the ASUS B250 Mining Expert with 16 GPUs vs 2 8-GPU Octominer Rigs. 2x Octominers with cheap $40 SSDs is $560, while the B250 rig can be had for under $425 total with a $200 B250, $40 CPU, $80 for 8Gb RAM, $40 SSD, $63 for 18x risers.

Mining frames aren’t necessary, and are a total waste of money. My 10x GPU rig is on a $60 wire 10 shelf rack with cardboard shelf liners and a $2 piece of 36”x1/2”x1/2” square dowel to secure the GPUs to each other and to the shelf. The rack has enough space for 6 of these rigs.
