I believe we’re now in the territory of ASIC heat being more efficient than traditional electric heating elements from a cost/btu standpoint. Play this out for a few years and we see the cloud moving to our baseboard heaters.

If you pay for your heat in NY – it probably pays to buy some ASICs. The value of bitcoin will go up or down, the hashrate similarly, but so does oil / gas. Right now it makes sense to heat with ASICs.

lol a 200gh/s miner will save you $30 a month (maximum) in heating costs for the low low upfront investment of one thousand dollars

lollin at genecoin claiming to know what is dna makes you an individual while ignoring metagenomics, like smdh it's not 1998 lol

also a sequence would cost $9k and inserting whatever pared down version into the blockchain would cost $800 in fees and take a minimum of four months (assuming no other transactions take place) in addition to whatever fee genecoin would charge

actually multiply this by a bit because your DNA info would need some sort of identifying header because the transactions would most certainly happen out of order

Most people are financially incompetent so this isn't too surprising to me. The daughter stood to have an infinite ROI on the $100 worth of bitcoin, now she gets nothing.


god yes I can't wait until the day one bitcoin is worth infinity dollars, also for the day someone will claim bitcoins will give you an roi of infinity +1

reminder: if there is a single human overseeing the operation of the agents, the autonomous corporation becomes a regular corporation with a complicated asset management system.

point the second, if it would be profitable to own shares of an autonomous corporation, it would be just as profitable to own and oversee it in a traditional manner

thirdly, there is no legal precedence for autonomous corporations, a server cannot be liable for damages so either the original programmer or stockholders would be sued. also if the corp doesn't belong to anyone, there's nothing stopping someone from taking it over. if anyone had the power to object, they would be in a position of legal authority in the corporation

it doesn't take 2 hours to board a domestic flight and that's what you'd need for high speed rail to be faster from say chicago to nyc then taking a normal train out to the airport, getting on the plane, flying over, and taking another train.

it does take this long in some cases but I think high speed rail is only worthwhile for closer-together cities like on the coasts
