Hashflare Mining Pool Settings for MAX PROFIT - Bitcoin SHA-256 Cloud Mining - Day 8 https://hashflare.io/r/1C83BC09 What is a Mining Pool? Mining pools are groups of cooperating miners who agree to share block rewards in proportion to their contributed mining hash power.

Cloud (or remote) mining – is the process of using hardware power to mine cryptocurrency (such as Bitcoin or Litecoin) remotely. This mining model came into existence due to the fact that the increasing difficulty of mining has made it unprofitable for mining enthusiasts to mine Bitcoins at home. Hashflare Sign-up: https://hashflare.io/r/1C83BC09 While mining pools are desirable to the average miner as they smooth out rewards and make them more predictable, they unfortunately concentrate power to the mining pool’s owner. Miners can, however, choose to redirect their hashing power to a different mining pool at anytime. Pool Concentration in China Before we get into the best mining pools to join, it’s important to note that most mining pools are in China. Many only have Chinese websites and support. Mining centralization in China is one of Bitcoin’s biggest issues at the moment. There are about 20 major mining pools. Broken down by the percent of hash power controlled by a pool, and the location of that pool’s company, we estimate that Chinese pools control ~81% of the network hash rate: hashflare, mining pools, settings, max payout, most profitable, cloud mining, bitcoin mining, ethereum mining, SHA256, f2pool, script, ltc1btc

Why We Need Both Gold and Bitcoin (w/ Roy Sebag)
 
47:41
Goldmoney founder and CEO Roy Sebag takes the other side when it comes to Grayscale Bitcoin Trust’s recent ‘Drop Gold’ campaign. In this conversation with Stephan Spears of McEwen Mining, Sebag argues that gold is not an enemy that bitcoin needs to dethrone, but rather an accomplice in shaking up the fiat currency system as we know it.

First, maybe let's address some of the claims that are made in the 'Drop Gold' campaign that gold is heavy, that it occupies a lot of space, it doesn't have the value density that Bitcoin because Bitcoin is weightless, and so forth. I think you've proven that those are verifiably false, can you just go through a couple of those, and then we'll get into decay? ROY SEBAG: Yeah, very quickly. So, in the advertorial campaign, you see people holding gold, which essentially misrepresents the weight of the gold. Now, this is very important, because those Legos that I mentioned earlier, those corporeal elements, they have immutable properties that are accessible to us through time that never change. And so, we know that of the 90 natural elements that occur naturally, gold has the highest specific gravity, which means that it condenses into a volumetric space, and becomes heavier and heavier and heavier relative to everything else. So, in the advertorial, you see a guy essentially carrying two bars of gold, but those bars of gold would weigh 220 pounds, and he's effortlessly walking around with them. That's impossible. No one could actually carry gold that way. Moreover, we're talking about 10, $20 million of gold that this person would be holding. So, the misrepresentation begins by saying, it's this shiny metal, that's heavy. But in reality, that value density, the amount of energy embodiment that went into producing the gold, is why it's worth so much. And in fact, no other piece of Lego in the system could do that. No other corporeal element could store so much energy in such a small amount of volumetric space. So, that's one. And then when I actually try to figure out how much volumetric space does Bitcoin take up, I discovered that it takes up an incredible amount of volumetric space when you consider the mining rigs, when you consider the transformers, the physical space that's required to actually run these servers that are constantly solving the mathematical puzzles. You end up with a difference in ratio of 500 to 5000 times depending on how you look at it. And that's when you're comparing all the gold in the world worth $8 trillion to all the Bitcoin in the world today, which is worth about $200 billion. So, the idea that this Bitcoin that you're using on your smartphone has no impact or footprint in the physical corporeal world, that it's purely digital is false. It's cognitive dissonance. In fact, it's taking up an incredible amount of energy, physical footprints, resources, and ecological opportunity costs because it's requiring a continued investment in the reification of this abstraction, so that the bits of Bitcoin, which are just symbols, are worth any more or act any different than any other bits of symbols that I could just write with my pen and paper. STEPHAN SPEARS: So, what are we talking about on an annual basis, what does it cost to actually run the Bitcoin network?

I bought a $1000 Litecoin Mining Contract (Ecopod Mining With L3+ Antminers) At AMAZING Rates!
 
22:28
I bought a $1000 litecoin mining contract (ecopod mining with L3+ antminers) at AMAZING rates ($5.5 per MH/s). I'm so happy! I'm better off buying the litecoin contract than buying an antminer L3+ (which I wanted to do, but it's sold out everywhere). But after calculating how much an antminer L3+ (litecoin mining hardware) would cost me (about $3800 for 504 MH/s, so that's $7.54 per MH/s not even calculating the electricity cost, which is included in the litecoin mining contract). I'm much better off with a litecoin mining contract from the litecoin flash sale (it's also the easiest way how to mine litecoin) which lasted ONLY 7 min.! Last time it was 30min., this time only 7..

Overstock CEO And Bitcoin Pioneer Explains His Long-Standing Crypto Play And His Philosophy On Life
 
04:25
Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne sat down with Business Insider's Sara Silverstein to discuss his longstanding belief in cryptos, a revolutionary cryptocurrency called Ravencoin, and his philosophy on life. Following is a transcript of the video. Sara Silverstein: So Overstock.com has been accepting bitcoin for as long as I can remember anyone has. Patrick Byrne: We were the first. We were the first — there was a — the largest company then accepting bitcoin was an $800,000 a year restaurant diner in western Australia. We stepped up and started taking it — we were $1.4 billion. So we often — I like to think that we saved that community about five years in their adoption cycle. Silverstein: And how much of bitcoin are you transferring to cash right now? Byrne: Now we only transfer 50% and the rest we keep in bitcoin. And then periodically, we do — we have cashed in bitcoin and made a few million dollars along the way or five million dollars somewhere like that. But generally, as we go along, we do 50% retain bitcoin 50% USD. Silverstein: And where do you think the bitcoin price should be? Byrne: No idea. No idea. Wherever millions of people through their trading say it should be. I can't read their — there's no way anyway — Silverstein: Yeah, and are you interested in everything cryptocurrency? Or are you really interested in the blockchain? Where do you separate the two? Byrne: Well I'm not really interested in cryptocurrencies per se. Although in general, I guess there's nothing wrong with me saying there is an open-source project of which I'm really letting something big out of the bag here.  I'll tell you. But there's an open-source project called Ravencoin, which Overstock has put millions of dollars into teams. We have people contributing to this open-source project. We think this coin actually has quite a future. It's about — it's bitcoin, but a thousand times more energy efficient. And there's other real interesting virtues to it — so Ravencoin. But other than that, I stay out of the cryptocurrency game. I'm building the — we're focusing on applications of this technology and not just betting on coins themselves. Silverstein: And is that the primary purpose of Ravencoin is to be a more energy efficient version of some of these other cryptocurrencies? Byrne: That's — I'd say that's the first feature it brings to the world. What I hear — from the open-source community and on the message boards —  I know what they are working on and it seems — it's really quite a — I think it has — it was launched January 3 and it's as this open-source project. And I think it has more — last I heard — the number of miners who are now working on it — or it has spread faster than any number of miners of any coin introduced. It's really quite a phenomenon this Ravencoin. So — and what's nice it's democratized. Yeah, it — what happens is, you know, all these coins like bitcoin and such are built on — there's a processor that's solving mathematical problems. And it's possible to build chips that specialize in just that problem. And so you really can't — with your home computer, you're not going to mine any bitcoin anymore unless you have this dedicated ASIC chip.  Well, Ravencoin was designed, so you can't do that — it's ASIC resistant. And that's because the problem that you solve keeps flipping randomly among a bunch of class of problems. Anyway, you can't solve it efficiently with an ASIC’s chip, which means it redemocratizes mining. Anyone can download this software, and you don't have an advantage by having this big mining warehouse in China. Silverstein: And what's your life philosophy? I know you've ridden your bike across country five times? Byrne: Four times Byrne: Don't remind me — Silverstein: I know, just exaggerating — Silverstein: And you obviously run your company different than a lot of people run their companies. Byrne: Is it that obvious? Silverstein: Yeah, just a little bit. What would you say your philosophy is? What keeps you going? What keeps you creative? Byrne: Really? No one has ever asked me that question. Truth is it's service. That's what we're all here for — is service. You know, at some point in your life, you realize it's not about me, and it's not about gaining stuff, it's finding ways to serve other people.

Bitcoin Q&A: Lost coins and the deflationary experiment
 
16:00
Do you think it is a problem that Bitcoin private keys can be destroyed, in terms of a store-of-value? Should we re-distribute bitcoin which hasn't moved for a long period of time? Should we do something about lost coins? Is there potential for centralization through concentration of ownership of bitcoin? Has there ever been a deflationary experiment? Wouldn't people stop spending altogether? These questions are from the fourth and fifth sessions of MOOC 11, which took place on February 22nd and March 1st 2019 respectively.

"Blockchain" or Bitcoin: Understanding the differences
 
37:15
In this talk, Andreas explores the rise of the term "blockchain" as a counterweight to bitcoin. The term blockchain does not provide a definition, as it has been diluted to be meaningless. Saying "blockchain" simply invites questions, such as "what is the consensus algorithm". Meanwhile, bitcoin continues to offer an alternative to the traditional financial system. Andreas looks at the value of private ledgers, which he sees as having a small impact on finance, versus open, global and accessible payment and currency systems such as bitcoin which he sees as fostering a global revolution in finance and access to financial tools.

Bitcoin Cash - November 15th Hard Fork (Bitcoin ABC vs Bitcoin SV) (Craig Wright vs Amaury Séchet)

Bottlenecks prevented larger blocks from being mined: https://twitter.com/lopp/status/1036245691050483714 ⚫ Amaury Séchet @ BCH Devcon Amsterdam 2018 (use the timestamps in the top-pinned comment): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wSFlyG-TY0 “Yes, so I agree, we need to get beyond 32 MB at some point. But I’d like to put things in perspective. 32 MB is PayPal level volumes of transactions. So it’s already— you are a worldwide payment system. You are not THE payment system and the money of the world, but you are pretty damn big. So we are there. The problem is we know if we go beyond that actually the software doesn’t work at all. Like, there is a bunch of problems in the software that make it so that it doesn’t quite work. And so, if you just increase the blocksize and you don’t change those other stuff, the only that you achieve is that you increase your attack surface. Because, there are all kinds of those vectors that become 4 times as bad if they are linear, 16 times as bad if they are quadratic, and so on. And so it doesn’t seem like a very rational decision to increase that limit to increase your attack surface when you effectively cannot handle that transaction volume because of other limitation in the software.” - - - “So we prioritize the work in a bit of a different way. So Bitcoin Unlimited prioritizes the work to work on the most immediate bottleneck first. So the first bottleneck we hit they work on it and then they go to the next one. In Bitcoin ABC we have prioritized things in a way that is a bit different where we prioritize the bottleneck that is the harder to fix first. Because the way we see it is the ecosystem is quite small right now. And so those smaller expensive changes are—any kind of change becomes more expensive as the ecosystem grows. So if we do the most expensive change that needs to happen to scale properly now, the cost is less big. Because by the point we grow enough so that we hit that bottleneck, it is also very likely we will be big enough so that the cost is prohibitively high to fix those. And this is more or less what happened with the block size. In like 2012, 2013 or so, people started talking about the block size. And everybody was like, “you know—we don’t really care. The block size is less than 100kb. When they get bigger we are going to fix it. No problem. Everybody agrees.” Right? This was what everybody was saying at the time. But then when we got close, we saw that we had a bunch of new actors in the space—many of them did not want to do because they had the business plan that was aligned with the fact that there is a limit. And generally there are more people to convince as well. So we found ourselves in a position where is became very, very difficult to raise the block size, and we ended up having to fork to make that happen. So we very much don’t want to find ourselves in the same situation again for other elements that limit scaling. And this is why we have been focusing on those elements that are the most expensive to fix.” - - - “I would argue though that saying, “Ok, we’ve raised the block size to 128 MB” when we cannot really handle it. And say, “Ok, we can handle that.” And then maybe one of those businesses is going to actually try and everything breaks down. It’s probably even worse than saying “We do 32 MB.” So, I would be very much of the opinion that we need to raise it as much as possible to avoid this kind of issue, but I would rather not advertise something that we cannot do. “ - - - Disclaimer: The views expressed in this video are strictly my own and are not to be construed as trading advice.

Bitcoin Will Replace Gold & Other Predictions Explained (w/ Barry Silbert & Raoul Pal)
 
47:42
Barry Silbert is the founder & CEO of Digital Currency Group, a company that has helped build the foundation of the digital currency and blockchain technology industry. DCG has been so successful to date that its investment trust is worth as much today as the whole asset class five years ago. But what comes next? In this interview, Raoul Pal tries to get to the bottom of how viable cryptocurrencies are over the long-term. In addition to talking about cryptocurrencies’ viability and volatility, Silbert addresses the need for crypto to serve as a speculative vehicle, policing fraud and illegality. He also speaks to the utility of blockchain outside of the currency realm. Silbert then discusses his views on bitcoin versus gold, and on the generational divide driving changes in the thinking about stores of wealth.

And so, where was Bitcoin then? BARRY SILBERT: 350 or so. RAOUL PAL: And where's it today? BARRY SILBERT: About 8000. So, I got to re-watch the interview. And I guess we'll do a victory lap right now and say I was probably pretty, right. RAOUL PAL: Yeah, I think you can say that. And that's with a huge spike up and a huge drop as well. And it's still being very right. Once to get you back, just to pick your brains to find out where we are. We're on this journey and it's a long journey. We think we know where we're going. But we don't really know. So, let's start with where you think the journey is going. And then we'll back up to where we are now. And the stuff that you're looking at. BARRY SILBERT: Right. Well, so I think let's go back to the for the past, I guess, four and a half years. So, in 2014, I would imagine the asset class was probably only worth a couple of billion dollars. Today, Bitcoin is worth about 125 billion. I would imagine that there were only a handful of exchangesRAOUL PAL: In fact, your investment trust is worth- now? BARRY SILBERT: 2 billion. RAOUL PAL: The same, different times. BARRY SILBERT: Indeed. Yeah, that's true. And, yeah, good to be a first mover, I guess. Yeah, so there were probably only a handful of exchanges that you could trade off of, there was no institutional involvement in this space. When Bitcoin was discussed on popular media, it was always described as tulip bubble Ponzi scheme. So, still quite a bit of that, I guess. And then, yeah, you fast forwardRAOUL PAL: And it was also the criminal element, it was always going to say, it's the currency of criminals. BARRY SILBERT: Silk Road, probably, yeah, Silk Road probably existed at that point. And there was this perception that Bitcoin was only used by criminals. And so, fast forward to today, it's different. I think the asset class, look, the asset class is here to stay. The asset class, as defined as digital assets, which would include both digital currencies and these token investments. So, the asset class is here to stay. I think it's now being looked at as potentially an important part of a diversified portfolio. There are thousands of digital currencies and tokens that are out there, most of them we'll talk more about- you don't want to touch, but there's thousands of ways to play the asset class. And the infrastructure, the infrastructure comparing it then versus today, you've custody solutions now like institutional grade custody solutions, you have trading software, you have data and analytics, you have fantastic media editorial coverage.

Ontology (ONT) Leads Market Rallies - Correction Coming Up?
 
02:08
It’s https://www.investdiva.com/ ‘s Kiana Danial with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. We saw a relative rebound across the crypto market on Tuesday, but one coin took the surge to another level. I’m talking about Ontology, ranking 21st by market cap, which saw over 29% gains. Ontology was launched by a Chinese company, OnChain, last year. It’s been focusing on a wide range of projects, providing new high-performance public ledgers and smart contract systems. Some market participants believe Ontology is a giant step toward removing barriers between the blockchain and business industries because it allows businesses without previous knowledge of distributed networks use the blockchain technology. According to their white paper, Some of Ontology’s scenarios include a Multi-Source Identity System for people, a Multi-Source Identity System for Objects, and a Distributed Data Exchange. Ontology supports collaboration among chain networks using all its different protocol groups. Ontology`s token, ONT, tested the $5.00 barrier on Tuesday according to coinmarketcap. It also rallied against Bitcoin, as ONT/BTC uptrend continues on the daily chart. You need to keep in mind that Ontology’s price action is very young, and the markets could still be testing it out. Therefore, we could see a correction sooner or later. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates tomorrow.

Bitcoin: "Failing to Scale" - Prague 2016
 
01:02:43
In this talk, Andreas looks at scaling as an ongoing process. Using examples from the history of the Internet -- which has "failed to scale, gracefully, for 25 years" --- he discusses the scaling debate and looks at how Bitcoin will scale over the next several years.

Galena Mining's Abra project has NPV 8 times greater than market cap following PFS
 
05:10
Galena Mining Ltd (ASX:G1A) managing director Alex Molyneux updates Proactive Investors on the base metals-focused company’s Abra Lead-Silver Project which has had its world-class potential confirmed through a recently completed pre-feasibility study. The PFS outlines a 14-year mine life producing a high-value, high-grade lead-silver concentrate containing 91,000 tonnes of lead and 760,000 ounces of silver annually after ramp-up. “We all know that when projects go into the construction phase and they get commissioned, if they get commissioned well and the work is done right, there’s a huge re-rating in the value of the stock,” Molyneux says. He continues, “ïn our case our NPV (net present value) has come out at a level that is 8 times the current market cap of the company, we’re on track with our development milestones, I think that’s an opportunity and I’m certainly excited about it myself.”

The Cryptoverse - Channel Update 2018 (Does anyone even care? 🤔)
 
14:20
Today’s episode is brought you to by Vaultoro the one of a kind online exchange for Gold and Bitcoin: https://www.vaultoro.com/?a=100678 I actually make an effort not to blow my own trumpet. I don’t have a perfect track record in this regard but trust when me I say I put effort into holding my tongue often when I feel like explicitly pointing out something good about myself or what I do. The reason I do that is become I don’t want to be seen as arrogant. Again, im not perfect and even arrogance slips through from time to time, but I still think it’s important to give yourself credit where it is due. So on this occasion I’m going to point out that I started doing this in April of 2016, so coming up to 2 years now. That was when many other crypto podcasts and crypto YouTube channels were just a twinkle in their creators eye. https://letstalkbitcoin.com/ When I started The Cryptoverse there was only really Let’s Talk Bitcoin and maybe a couple of other shows. Suffice to say I’m an OG relatively speaking. That proves that I did not get into this for the money, because back then there was no money in it. I sunk money into this for more than a year before it generated any revenue. https://www.youtube.com/ Now you have channels starting and becoming profitable within months. https://coinmarketcap.com/charts/ That’s what happened in 2017. There was an explosion in the cryptocurrency market and a similar sized explosion in the number of podcasts and YouTube channels creating content. Remember by that time I’d already been busting my arse for a year creating content and losing thousands of pounds in the process to keep it going, and I did that because I had a mission and a purpose. So when I saw brand new channels appearing featuring hosts with little to no experience in any discipline like computer science, economics or philosophy, and those channels quickly overtaking mine in terms of views and subscribers, that’s when my ego kicked in. Long story short, this is when I decided to go from the podcasting show format, where I just talk over my screen, and which I used to get rave reviews for, to using a camera and showing my face. I did this because I thought this was why my channel was lagging behind all these newcomers. That is when I made a critical mistake, I turned my attention away from what made my channel great, the content, and turned it towards the channel metrics. https://www.youtube.com/c/TheCryptoverse What’s dumb about that is I can’t affect the numbers by focusing on them. The number of subscribers and the number of views is a side effect of putting out good content. So by forgetting to make the content the number 1 priority, that actually stifled the numbers and manifested the exact opposite of what I intended. Meanwhile these other channels just put out good content and saw the grow of their channels skyrocket. I’m thinking particularly about the Crypto Investor channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTKyJALgd09WxZBuWVbZzXQ/ Which you can see here was created on 28th August 2017, 4 months ago and has 110,000 subscribers. Or Boxmining, created the channel on 23rd February 2017 and has 131,000 subscribers. With respect, it’s easy for you to sit there and give me some kind of glib response like “the numbers don’t matter” because by the time Boxmining came along, I’d already been been busting my arse creating content for a year. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not taking anything away from these guys. I’m actually saying it’s the quality of their content that has been the source of their success. And those two guys in particular did have some pre-existing expertise before they started their channel, Boxmining in terms of computer game production and Crypto Investor in terms of stock trading. https://www.youtube.com/c/TheCryptoverse But what I’m really trying to communicate here is the emotional state I got into and how that lead my behaviour in a somewhat dysfunctional direction. And yes the numbers do matter in the sense that they tell me how many people I am reaching, and that matters when you have a mission and a purpose. Anyway, what was ironic is that going to all the trouble and expense of setting up a video studio with the green screen, the camera and the lights, it made little the no difference to the numbers and just ended up burning up time I could have otherwise spent making better content. When I realised that over the xmas break I thought, that’s it, I’m going back to what I know works for me. I’m going back to what made my content great in the first place. 80% of the value that I provide comes from my voice, not my face. It’s critically important as a content creator to know what kind of content creator you are. I’m not as tall and handsome as Ivon on Tech. I’m not as charming as Amanda B. Jonson. And I’m not as cool as Omar Bham. So I should not try to be, because that just distracts me from doing what no one can beat me at, which is being Chris Coney.

Bitcoin: Dumb Networks, Innovation and the Festival of the Commons
 
29:51
In this talk, Andreas speaks about permissionless innovation in Bitcoin's network architecture, and the economics of open systems that enable a festival of the commons. This talk was delivered on January 27th 2015, at the O'Reilly Radar Summit "Bitcoin and the Blockchain" in San Francisco, CA: https://conferences.oreilly.com/bitcoin-blockchain-2015 Video is licensed CC-BY CORRECTION: At 13:12, I said that multi-signature transactions were added to Bitcoin and the first multi-sig wallet deployed in 2014. This is not true. The BIPs for multi-sig were finalized in 2011 and 2012. Multi-sig was being used prior to 2014, but only a very small percentage of bitcoin was held in multi-sig addresses, and no consumer-facing multi-sig wallets were available. BitGo deployed a multi-sig wallet in August 2013.

EPISODE 18: Cryptocurrency and the Environment
 
11:16
Cryptocurrency and the Environment “Bitcoin mining is using up more electricity than the entire country of Ireland.”   While Ireland’s population is quite small with its less than 4.8 million people, the power consumption of Bitcoin is still often underestimated. It is odd to think that just one cryptocurrency might consume the same amount of energy every year as 6.3 million US households.   But is it such a crime that the crypto-revolution which is changing the world needs a little juice to get going? Let’s look deeper into the situation.   Using electricity in, and of, itself is fine. Electricity itself is part of nature; it’s not like Styrofoam, which is created in a contamination-free lab by scientists in white coats. The environmental hazards lie in how electricity is generated.   Despite it being 2018, there are many countries still using coal and gas in their power plants. A disturbing piece of news really brought attention to the issue, when a decommissioned coal mining plant in Australia was purchased by a Bitcoin mining company, to be reactivated solely to power bitcoin mining equipment. In this light, it seems as if we are moving backward to create a forward-thinking, global currency when we should be concentrating our efforts on keeping our air clean and the ozone layer intact.   However, there is a significant movement and belief that says we can have cryptocurrency mining and a clean environment, at the same time. According to research conducted at ICObench.com, there are 54 mining companies alone that started in the last 2 years, which boast using renewable clean energy that powers their mining rigs, using either solar, hydrogen, wind power, or a combination of the three.   A handful of other mining farm startups claim special rate deals from local power plants, but ultimately they will struggle to compete with the rates of solar energy and hydro dams. There is even a project for creating electricity through a magnetic vacuum, which is an interesting innovation by itself. While there is no telling yet if this will work on a large scale, the necessity once again is driving technology forward.   “Bitcoin is currently using 0.31% of all the world’s electricity.” - The Digiconomist   Why does Bitcoin need all that energy, when many other coins don’t?   To create Bitcoins, by far the most valuable currency at this time, you have to use a mining rig, which is a powerful computer that performs calculations of random math problems and submits the result to the blockchain. Every 10 minutes, one of those results will be right and is chosen to receive a block reward (contains a certain number of Bitcoins, which decreases over time), currently, that reward is worth almost $100,000 USD. This method of creating coins is called Proof of Work.   This has another function though, as well. It keeps your network decentralized, so no one or a small handful of people control it. Proof of Work ensures the validity of transaction better than any other consensus method so far.   This was an excellent way to do things, in theory, for many years. However, now that industry has got involved, there really are only a small handful of companies with large enough infrastructure to mine the majority of bitcoins. The vast majority of calculations solved per second (known as the network hash rate) is currently controlled by 7 major pools. That’s not at all what a decentralized network looks like, and is not what The Bitcoin Foundation intended.    Bitcoin is not the only coin consuming tremendous amounts of energy. Ethereum is the next largest coin, around 1/3rd of the size of Bitcoin. Their founder is considering changing the consensus mechanism so no more coins can be mined, and going to a Proof of Stake system, which is extremely more energy-efficient.   But then there will be another problem – new coins are given based on how many coins people already have. A powerful investor could easily just purchase the majority of the coin (several billions of dollars) and essentially own the entire network.   As with demand, supply must grow, in parallel. What happens when all of the current renewable energy sources are not enough? Bitcoin miners simply invest in building more renewable energy infrastructure. When new consensus methods are discovered and mining is either obsolete or much more energy-efficient, this surplus renewable energy will then trickle into the rest of the grid, causing fossil-fueled plants to slow, and eventually shut down.   While currently, the electricity consumption by Bitcoin may be a problem, in the long-term it could very well lead to a much cleaner, more energized, Earth.   Listen to Crypto and Blockchain Talk for more interesting topics! ...

Focusing on the needs of their user base is a big plus and that’s why I believe they will continue to be the top privacy coin out there It’s one of the most technically sound cryptocurrencies on the market. There are definitely competitors, the two that stick out are Dash and Zcash which are stepping up their privacy measures also, but I don’t think the first mover advantage can be understated here. Monero has over 400 developers who have used the open source code and they will more than likely continue to grow.

Black Markets, White Markets: A False Narrative
 
32:25
In this talk, Andreas picks apart the false dichotomy of 'rainbow' market types (white, grey, black, red, blue), the underlying moral assumptions in these classifications, and why Bitcoin's colorblindness matters in a world where state 'justice as a service' (JaaS) is not only jurisdictionally relative and contradictory on a global scale, but often faulty and destructive within its own borders. CLARIFICATION: At 6:50, I said that it was illegal to use bitcoin in to escape Venezuela's currency collapse. This is somewhat incorrect. There is still no law in Venezuela that is explicitly in favor or against the use of bitcoin itself; Bitcoin's status in Venezuela would be more accurately described as a grey market. Authorities have justified arrests based on accusations of "committing cyber fraud and power theft," or "money laundering" and "financing terrorism." Bitcoin miners are often subject to extortion by local police. Another charge has been "bypassing currency controls," which is what I meant to address in that statement. This is my first time using YouTube's new Premiere feature, so please let me know if you enjoyed it and I will consider doing more of these releases in the future.

RERUN: Gold Is “Where It Should Be” - Pierre Lassonde
 
05:03
While a much higher gold price is needed to bring bullish sentiment back into the mining space, the yellow metal is already fairly priced, said Pierre Lassonde, Chairman of Franco-Nevada Corp.“At $,1300 [an ounce], I will argue that gold is well priced,” Lassonde told Kitco News on the sidelines of the BMO Global Metals & Mining Conference. “It’s not overpriced and it’s not underpriced. It’s where it should be given everything else that’s happening in the world.”Lassonde noted that the industry itself, particularly the producers of precious metals, has been performing well, but much higher gold prices will be needed to secure investors’ interest back into the market. “At $1,300 gold, the mining companies, the operators, are doing well, you can see the balance sheets are better than ever. They’ve learned their lesson and are focusing on margins,” Lassonde said. “But if you look at the investors, they don’t want to hear about it.”Lassonde noted that Franco-Nevada, Newmont, and Agnico Eagle are currently the top performers in the industry, or as he liked to call it, companies with the “golden halo.” _________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

Alex Tapscott: "Blockchain Revolution" | Talks at Google
 
56:39
Talks at Google in London were delighted to welcome Alex Tapscott to talk about his book Blockchain Revolution, looking at how the technology behind Bitcoin can reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Alex can be found on Twitter at: @alextapscott Book on Google Play - with free first chapter! https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Don_Tapscott_Blockchain_Revolution?id=bwz_CwAAQBAJ About the Book: The technology likely to have the greatest impact on the future of the world economy has arrived, and it's not self-driving cars, solar energy, or artificial intelligence. It’s called the blockchain. The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation powered by blockchain technology is bringing us the Internet of value: a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolutionary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it's the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital currencies, the underlying framework has the potential to go far beyond these and record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certificates to insurance claims and even votes. Why should you care? Maybe you're a music lover who wants artists to make a living off their art. And those examples are barely the tip of the iceberg. This technology is public, encrypted, and readily available for anyone to use. It's already seeing widespread adoption in a number of areas. For example, forty-two (and counting) of the world's biggest financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and Credit Suisse, have formed a consortium to investigate the blockchain for speedier and more secure transactions. As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, the blockchain will create winners and losers. And while opportunities abound, the risks of disruption and dislocation must not be ignored. About the Author: Alex Tapscott is the CEO and Founder of Northwest Passage Ventures, an advisory firm building industry-leading blockchain businesses. Formerly, Alex was a senior executive at Canaccord Genuity, Canada’s largest independent investment bank. At age 25, he became the firm’s youngest-ever Vice President and in 2014, he founded the firm’s blockchain practice. Over his career, Alex has worked tirelessly for his clients, raising hundreds of millions of dollars in growth capital from a global institutional investor base, and provided sound advice and counsel.

But I think what is safe to say is that gold is inversely correlated to confidence in the financial system. And the fact that gold is independent, from the governments, from the banking system, and scarce is what creates a tremendous potential value. I don't think we're going to have another 2008. We're going to have something that's different from 2008. The reason I don't think necessarily that's going to be the same is because the problem that 2008 revealed, which is excessive debts and excessive leverage, has essentially been kicked upstairs to the sovereign level. And so, what was a private debt crisis is likely will come back as a sovereign debt crisis, which is a completely different animal with very different parameters. So, whereas a lot of people are telling me now or I hear a lot of people saying, well, the banking system is much safer, because the leverage is lower, because there's less rehypothecation. The answer to that, well, that may be true. But if the currency in which they measure everything is de-botched or devalued, and that may happen overnight, in a very different way that would happen in 2008 happened. We know the end game. We know that all of these debts cannot be paid. We know that the unfunded liabilities cannot be met in terms of real purchasing power. So, then the question is, how does that gets resolved? Well, there are only a couple of ways it can get resolved is either through inflation, or deflation, deflation, meaning defaults. GRANT WILLIAMS: And the likely event that we do have some form of situations similar to that of 2008 and no matter what form that event might take, gold remains one of the few ways that you can protect yourself and preserve both your wealth and purchasing power. Man's connection to gold is not just a financial one, however. History is filled with deeply personal stories that demonstrate gold's role as a store of wealth, as protection from government confiscation via inflation and debasement. And as an insurance policy, that when called upon, pays out in ways that change the lives of those who own it. SIMON MIKHAILOVICH: I know a person who grew up in Vietnam whose father was a translator for the US military during Vietnam War. And when the US left Vietnam, they were unable to leave with the US forces. And so, they were left behind. And having been left behind, they obviously were subjected to oppression by the communist regime. It so happened that the family of 14, one of the uncles there was a dentist and he was able to accumulate over the next whatever, 10, 12 years, a certain amount of gold so that in the late '80s, this family was able to pay seven ounces of gold per person. So, times 14, over 100 ounces of gold, to get 14 seats on a boat that left Saigon in the middle of the night, lost power in the next day, drifted at sea for a few days.

Do consult your financial advisor before making any decisions. Digital Notice will not be responsible for any trading decisions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SALT lets you leverage your blockchain assets to secure cash loans. We make it easy to get money without having to sell your favorite investment. SALT streamlines every step of the loan. We've simplified the application process by focusing on the value of the borrower’s blockchain assets instead of their credit score. Borrowers are automatically matched with capital from our extensive network of lenders. SALT keeps collateral assets safe in a fully-audited, ultra-secure architecture during the life of the loan so members can borrow with confidence. In the past, the difficulty and costs of liquidating, transferring, and storing assets has required lenders to focus on the creditworthiness of their borrower as well as the value of their borrower’s assets. This inefficiency results in limited accessibility to cash and higher interest rates for borrowers. Distributed ledgers represent a paradigm shift in the storage and transfer of assets and, for the first time in history, there is a perfect form of collateral: blockchain assets. SALT is pioneering an evolutionary leap for lending in which the value of a borrower’s assets are fully recognized and credit history is made irrelevant. ______________________________________________________________ For any questions please comment on the video.

Hashflare Mining Pool Settings For Max Profit - Bitcoin Sha-256 Cloud Mining - Day 8

Hashflare Mining Pool Settings for MAX PROFIT - Bitcoin SHA-256 Cloud Mining - Day 8 https://hashflare.io/r/75EAA8BB What is a Mining Pool? Mining pools are groups of cooperating miners who agree to share block rewards in proportion to their contributed mining hash power. Hashflare Beginners Tutorial - Bitcoin SHA-256 Cloud Mining - Day 1 ************************************************************************* ♦ OFFER ♦ Sign-up to Hasflare using my referral link Feel free to contact me for further details - Get Free Support with this from us https://hashflare.io/r/75EAA8BB ************************************************************************* Free Support Group Join Now : https://www.facebook.com/groups/30748... Cloud (or remote) mining – is the process of using hardware power to mine cryptocurrency (such as Bitcoin or Litecoin) remotely. This mining model came into existence due to the fact that the increasing difficulty of mining has made it unprofitable for mining enthusiasts to mine Bitcoins at home. Hashflare Sign-up: https://hashflare.io/r/75EAA8BB While mining pools are desirable to the average miner as they smooth out rewards and make them more predictable, they unfortunately concentrate power to the mining pool’s owner. Miners can, however, choose to redirect their hashing power to a different mining pool at anytime. Pool Concentration in China Before we get into the best mining pools to join, it’s important to note that most mining pools are in China. Many only have Chinese websites and support. Mining centralization in China is one of Bitcoin’s biggest issues at the moment. There are about 20 major mining pools. Broken down by the percent of hash power controlled by a pool, and the location of that pool’s company, we estimate that Chinese pools control ~81% of the network hash rate: hashflare, mining pools, settings, max payout, most profitable, cloud mining, bitcoin mining, ethereum mining, SHA256, f2pool, script, ltc1btc * * * Hashflare.io * * * https://hashflare.io/r/75EAA8BB (Use discount promo code: 75EAA8BB) * * * Genesis Mining * * * https://www.genesis-mining.com/a/1007701 (Use discount promo code: 4M0anS)

Mining Express Review - Former Miner Opts For Ponzi Scam Model
 
12:14
Mining Express Review View My TOP Program here http://watchthis.followjulian.com #crypto #cryptocurrency #miningexpress Mining Express Review – Summary Key Figures: Kaze Fuziyami Product Type: Cloud Mining Crypto Ponzi MLM. Summary: I think this program attempted to be legitimate but quickly realized that cloud mining is harder than it looks! Currently it’s a ponzi wich pays 200% ROI. The catch is that Mining Express can take as long as they need to make this ROI. This should give them some longevity. To earn you must invest at least $100 paid in BTC. ROI is paid at a rate of 50% of daily hash generated. Mining Express decides how much “profits” to report. Affiliates can earn direct commissions as well as MLM commissions. See The Comp Plan Here. https://blog.followjulian.com/mining-express-review-former-miner-opts-for-ponzi-scam-model/ Investors demand profits….they don’t care about profitability fluctuations. In the beginnning Mining Express had difficulty attracting investors due to a lack of profitabilty. Now they have switched to a ponzi model which is unsustainable. I wonder what will happen to the equipment assets when it collapses. Even though Mining Express will collapse, I think it could last 5 years. Rating: D Verdict: Was legit for a short time but legitimate no longer!

Fred Hickey: There's Now Another Technology Bubble Far Larger Than The 1999-2000 One
 
01:09:22
Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed first time guest, technology expert, technology investor and editor at The High-Tech Strategist newsletter since 1987, Fred Hickey. Follow Fred on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/htsfhickey Fred is also a former Barron's round table member and he's frequently cited on Bloomberg News. During this hour plus long interview, Jason first asks Fred about the technology industry including the FAANG stocks and tech stock valuations. Questions include: 1) What's your opinion on valuations for technology companies? 2) Are the FAANGS distorting a lot of the major stock market indexes? 3) Are there any particular technology industries that you think there's bargains or reasonably priced growth? 4) Do you think with the NASDAQ and Russell 2000 at all time highs now that this means there's another technology bubble similar to the one you shorted in the late 1990s-early 2000s? 5) What's you views on the 3d printing and cyber security industries? The second part of the interview, Jason asks Fred about the global economy (global macro) situation in his views and why he likes gold and gold stocks? Questions include: 1) If the Fed is serious about ramping up QT in October to $50 billion per month with 2 additional rate hikes in 2018, do you think that this means a stronger US Dollar? How do you think this will affect stocks and gold? 2) The ECB and BOJ are claiming that they will taper, raise interest rates and stop QE in the near future. Do you think they will seriously do it or is this more jawboning where they know they cna't stop QE? 3) I know you spend a lot of time researching gold mining stocks. Overall, do you think the industry has done a good job of cutting costs, improving their balance sheets and focusing on improving margins the last few years? 4) Can many of the primary gold miners survive a larger correction in the gold price in US Dollars or do you think that the gold price will start moving up more soon? 5) Are there any gold miners who you think that management is doing a particularly excellent job? 6) Do you think that gold miners have some of the best valuations of any industry or are there other industries where you see better valuations with better growth prospects?
