1  Economy / Economics / for anyone interested in how much their personal data is worth on: September 07, 2023, 06:52:59 PM


so a 56+yo hispanic person earning under $20k, their general data is worth $0.09

so a 20yo middle eastern person earning $130k, their general data is worth $1.31

data can also be worth more if specific demographs also have data that relates to an industry/product interest of the data buyer. EG a SCI-FI movie fans data would be worth more to a company that sells SCI-FI merch/entertainment products
2  Other / Politics & Society / changes need to be made on: September 03, 2023, 03:29:54 PM
one thing i have noticed about the bitcoin community is how in recent years alot of people are not seeking decentralised independence. instead they are bowing down and kissing ass to a centralised governance of coded rule decision makers(core)..

core have become the government that no longer need general community vote of new rules and only need the vote of the influencers of economic nodes who can bribe and blackmail mining pools into compliance... where by general users have no choice to veto a rule activation(backward compatibility trick)...

its turned the whole purpose of the invention of this currency that was suppose to be different to the fiat world, into a fiat structure of governance world with all its PR campaigns and deception by the ass kissers

we should actually be questioning the authority. scrutinising them and having ways to oppose them should they abuse their position..

bitcoiners were on the right path 2009-2014 but since then its as if too many people have been duped and stroked and ass kissed into yielding into allowing the control to gain more power.

the politics of bitcoin has changed since the olden days. and we really need to be scrutinising, highlighting, reviewing the things proposed to be changed and not just bow down all the time nor get told to shut up
3  Other / Off-topic / frankys list of an idiot group trying to ruin bitcoin to promote a alt network on: March 06, 2023, 06:40:04 AM
doomad, blackhatcoiner, wind_fury, thecodebear, o_e_l_e_o, nutildah, n0nce

these names above are the loudest snake oil salesmen, there are others and ill update as i see fit

these idiots want to continually soften, remove and abuse bitcoin rules with silly crap being added that breaks bitcoins utility, purpose and ethos. for their sole purpose of wanting to recruit users over to a subnetwork

they use shameful pitches and mislead users by pretending bitcoin history didnt happen the way the block data, code and logic proves. or by saying how new features that negatively impact bitcoins utility are in their mind good

i put this post here as reference, to link when people ask about who are the idiots of the forum who never want to do independent research about bitcoin nor care for bitcoin security/utility..
..and just majority of the time sound like sheep repeating narratives that each other echo to themselves related to flaws/features they enjoy which are related to wanting to break bitcoin/change bitcoins utility negatively just to self promote a subnetwork
4  Economy / Economics / BIS draws up framework to allow banks to hoard crypto in 2025 on: January 01, 2023, 10:25:52 PM
the Bank of international settlement (BIS)
have a guideline policy for how central banks can hoard crypto in the future

the short version for those that dont like to read
coins like BTC and ETH are set into a 'group 2b'
where the BIS advised banks only have from 2025 a individual holding 2% of crypto assets vs all combined assets. which is about if combining all banks in BIS. about $3-4trillion in bitcoin/eth

now the lengthier explainer
BIS originally set a limit of just 1% of the banks combined value, which the banks then got the BIS to change to 2%(banks want to hold crypto and more then the BIS first proposed was allowable)

based on some sources. this means of the banks combined value of 180trillion(yep i was shocked too)
the banks can hoard upto ~$3.7trillion of crypto such as ethereum/btc

there are other groups for second layer tokens and other groups for stable coins with their own limits and descriptors

but the group 2b have descriptors where the "market cap" needs to be above 10billion. and market volume of over 50m a day. meaning that rules out alot of crap coins from being in the group 2b category (sorry doge. no go, no throw, no mo)
5  Economy / Economics / fiat commodities vs crypto commodities(assets) on: December 18, 2022, 08:12:38 AM
ok first.
a commodity is a base product used to produce other products
300 years ago this was raw produce..
such as
gold= jewellery

it then evolved into
mortgage agreements=derivative baskets

and now they(regulators) wish to call any mainnet(base producer) crypto currency that has a bridge/peg mechanism to a token. to be classed as a commodity
ethereum=NFT erc-20 tokens like FTT

so now lets delve into my point of comparison between how the fiat commodity market of say wheat. compares to the crypto commodity market of say ethereum

fiats crypto commodity of ethereum has no limited supply much like wheat
but bitcoin does have a limited supply (like gold/oil)

so when deciding to get into the wheat or ethereum market. both are comparable.
however some notable fiat investors such as warren buffet dont actually buy wheat stock. instead the buy farms that produce wheat. so that if wheat has a good year the farm has a good year and thus buffet wins via a better farm valuation.
if wheat has a bad year. buffet can still sell the farm and recoup some value from seling the land, harvester equipment,

however in crypto. because it doesnt own land or buildings to set up a crypto business
if avoiding ethereum but wanting to buy a company that creates/uses ethereum.. those companies are not actually valued as well as real commodity produces of farming wheat

EG buying an exchange like FTX has no fully owned office space, and employees work remotely thus no electronic assets to sell. (they rent amazon AWS servers)

this means for instance if you bought into FTX becasue they do stuff with ethereum.. if their ethereum deposits have a bad year. ftx has nothing of value... as we all learned
(ftx had alot of ethereum an its other tokens were ethereum pegged tokens)

mining pools or staking syndicates have no central land/office/servers that have value to the company(its all decentralised)

so the warren buffets of fiat investment. dont want to get into crypto business purchasing and have never been into buying the underlying commodity(asset) whether fiat based or crypto based

this is also true for the so called "trusts" (premature ETF's)
though they sell shares/tokens of a trust and have collateral of commodity assets. the fiat investors that plan investments the same way as warren buffet wont buy the trust shares or even ownership stakes of the management companies of the trusts.

even if regulated(some think its   the hold up of mainstreaming) to show accounting and viable/sustainable reserves. if the commodity prices shrink. there is not enough office building ownership or land or equipment of these crypto companies to have a separate good value worth investing in as a backup to the underlying asset stored in collateral

again take FTX. it has no land, bought office or equipment. it was run by about 60 people who mostly worked remotely. thus there was no company equipment to put to auction should their FTT and ethereum (and bitcoin) disappear

there is no way we can get the warren buffet investor types to see crypto as something they would invest in even with extra regulation

that said. for other fiat investors. who are less like buffet.
regulation of "proof of reserves", regular auditing to satisfy a good true company valuation or trust collateral total. would give resolution to some fears. but these regulations should be more about investor protection. and not bureaucracy of more paperwork required by investors, and limitations on their trade ability/involvement

i say all this because there is alot of economic speculation about the whole saga of regulations trying to swap from SEC to CFTC. and crypto companies impact on the perception of the industry as a whole and the impact regulations can then cause either more mainstreaming or just a waste of time

the whole last 5 years of leaping back and for the from asset or commodity classification thus sec ->cftc->sec->cftc is keeping mainstream investors like pension fund managers away. because regulators cant make their minds up and actually finally decide what rules crypto businesses need to follow, and what stock/commodity(ftse) or share/security(nasdaq) exchange to list their company publicly on

the lack of investor/consumer protection regulation and the obsessions with excessive AML/KYC also doesnt favour pensions portfolio managers

by excessive KYC. its not just KYC of the users of the exchange/company. its the paperwork and KYC even outside of businesses that are being proposed. even at the individual coin tx outside of the company requirements. is a headache for funds managers to process. when they want to arbitrage or allow withdrawals for their own customers day trading

i dont see an easy 'sec allows ETF' and boom mainstream event..
i dont see it happening any time soon. nor a flood of new investors the day it does happen...
...unless the SEC& CFTC modernise and actually realise crypto is not like wheat. a farm is not like a custodial wallet/mining pool and the fiat rules of securities or commodities do not fit all crypto asset types
6  Economy / Economics / ok guys. thinking caps on please on: December 18, 2022, 06:24:19 AM
lets imagine we had the power to develop a CBDC which didnt have a premine. but instead a fair mechanism of "new coin" creation

how you would set out a way to create new money.
we know FIAT currently uses mortgage agreements/ QE bond agreements to create new money
but imagine you had the central bank think-tank advisory position to create a new CBDC with a fair and better "coin minting" mechanism

lets hear your idea's.

my idea, for fun..(not scrutinised for every possible scenario)
when a child is born. in a multisig of parents +doctor(midwife witness of bith) plus government birth records department. create an allotment of coin. which equates to social security payments for a min rate income over 80 years.

however those coins are not just released at birth. they are locked. to only be released under X circumstance (unemployment, retirement, childcare, education)

thus the new coins take care of the social security, public services payment system, thus remove tax obligations.

now lets hear your idea's

this is a bit of fun economic thinking. about a hypothetical scenario of wishing into an existence a crypto monetary system that whole nations would want to use. specifically the minting process that would be fair

its not about a opportunity for weed smoking tin-foiler's to be challenged to mention their paranoia where they think their politicians are sat at computers watching their constituents/citizens coffee purchases('gov i s watching me')

(please try to stick to a economic thinking of a fair monetary system not a political conspiracy)
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / ethereum switch from PoW to PoS on: September 16, 2022, 03:07:09 AM
so imagine if instead of say gold mining which costs about $900/ounce of labour, diesel, sluice machines, loader tricks and diggers..
where market rates are about 1.5x speculative bubble factor of underlying cost(value)
where gold have only ever reached a 2x factor in the last couple decades

imagine if gold could be mined in someones back yard for just $1 an ounce.. using a spoon and coffee filter paper

do you think gold would remain at a market rate of speculation of $1700

Ethereum just changed its mining underlying costs

from over $940 to under $35

i will let you discuss how much of a X multiple 'speculation bubble factor'. the market should remain at

enjoy the thoughts..

oh slight hint.. expect ethereum price to continue to decline until it corrects to a good value new low

9  Other / Off-topic / explaining common things from other topics on: June 28, 2021, 11:52:37 PM
in bitcoin. at code level there is no such thing as btc
everything at code and data level of the blockchain and transactions is measured in sats. always has been

btc is just a box term for a collection of 100000000 sats.
meaning 100000000 people can have a sat. so the scarcity is not the box but the shareable units
estimates of around 2100000000000000 shareable units to ever exist in the future

when you realise the box itself is not the value. but the amount of shareable units inside the box that gives the box value. you will start to understand

take a fruit analogy:
if there was a box containing 2 apples and it was named "box of apples". and only sold as 'box of apples $2'
only 1 can have 'box of apples'
the initial thought is only one person can have the box and only 1 person gets to taste an apple

reality is . no one actually cares about the cardboard. what they really want is the shareable apples
they just thought that the only option to get to taste an apple is to buy a whole box
because everything is priced by the boxload

most people think there are only 1 way to increase supply.
have more boxes..
however there is another.. have more apples per box and allow apples to be sold singularly

once you relieve yourself of this notion of box measures. and realise you can taste an apple without buying a whole box
you start to appreciate that scarcity is about how many can eat fruit.. and not about how many can chew on cardboard

(no one cares about that there is only 192thousand tonnes of gold. because everyone is able to buy part of 6.7nilloin ounces of gold.. meaning literally everyone can have gold)
10  Other / Politics & Society / so john mcafee committed suicide.. over taxes on: June 23, 2021, 09:14:56 PM
i know this might not seem empathetical. but from a P & S point of view.
taxes should be treated as civil court(like unpaid bills) and not criminal court.
but.. trying to extradite a guy from spain to the US to answer to tax claims seems a bit harsh

having the tax case extradition as the tipping point for him to suicide himself. just seems extreme

we all though the rumours of him possibly killing a neighbour and transporting drugs and weapons
but to have the US not push that. and instead get spanish police to arrest him over american tax evasion. and then grant extradition over tax evasion seems a bit much

i mean imagine someone else under suspicion of a true crime like abuse/murder/hard drugs. but nothing is done. then getting locked up and extradited for not paying a bill..

has the political system gone nuts.
i understand paying tax is important to governments. but in the scheme of crime/harm level. just seems a little bit too forceful to be handling someone internationally over something thats literally an unpaid bill

(yes i get there are other things involved. but lets play the politics version of events that its just to do with tax evasion)

do you feel that someone should be arrested and then deported over an unpaid bill?
i might understand it if he was already found guilty of not paying taxes. and then refused to pay the court fines.and then left the country
but before even being found guilty of an unpaid bill. when its still just suspected. seems harsh to go to the extremes, right?.. especially when so many others do the same and get away with it.
11  Other / Politics & Society / why revolutions and movements fail at their desired outcome on: May 28, 2021, 09:57:40 AM
so many people wonder why, when they gather and protest. while they scream 'lets start a revolution', 'lets start a movement'.. the end result is nothing changes

the secret is not a secret. its literally explained in the names
a 'revolution' is a circular orbit. yes you might see seasonal changes. but given enough time it circles back to where it started

a 'movement' is just that. stand still and just bend an elbow.. that is a movement.

protests are another empty task. a bunch of people standing in a street is not contractual or even binding. it does not set any deadlines or schedules for change. and no penalty for non-change

neither of these words actually inspire permanent change.
there is a reason why those in power want people to do movements/revolutions/protests. because they know those 3 activities are empty of any meaningful change. just how they like it

what people need to do is up their game.
there is actually a legal and lawful process to make change happen.
but those in power want to make people waste time in the wishy washy nonsense activities that dont cause change just to keep people from making change.

so here is some idea's
dont just protest. get all the people wanting to protest to actually sign a petition. get that petition to have a target. a schedule, a deadline and a penalty if ignored. serve it to all the people in power that need to change.
basically give them notice.
dont let it just be another empty petition showing a problem. actually have it contain some substance. solutions. demands. methods of accomplishments.

make sure the petition has what i just said. actual list of demands. a schedule process of how those in power can achieve it. a deadline. and a penalty if ignored.

then if you want to protest to make sure the message gets across loudly but peacefully. go protest. but dont just rely on a protest without any paper demands.

dont just be on the street preaching "we want change".. because the only reply you deserve to get is 'the underwear store is 3 blocks away, go there and change'

dont ask for a revolution. as thats just a spinning ball that lands where it left
dont promote a movement because it has no direction or destination.

the 19th century womans/black people rights didnt change due to protests. it changed due to petitions
media and those in power promote it was protests caused for a reason. so they dont have to be petitioned.

so if you are interested in changing things. be smarter. dont just gather and scream
12  Economy / Economics / disruptive market idea on: May 04, 2021, 09:45:33 PM
we all know the normal way markets work. having an order book that starts at a price and allows for prices to go down to zero..

but has anyone ever thought of making an exchange/market that actually allows for change

where the lowest bottomline available order does not have to be zero..

heres the idea
imagine a asset price starts at $10 and bottom starts at 0
if the price goes down. bottom is still 0..obviously
but if there is a new high of say $10.20. the new bottom becomes $0.20
if the price goes down. the new bottom does not change and stays at $0.20.
but the new bottom does not go up unless there is a new high

basically an exchange that has a moving bottom based on the ATH
my demo is not specific to be a bottom $10 under a ATH
it can be be 1% of ATH or even 0.1%.. the parameter is not important
not limiting it to crypt exchanges. but also any asset. auction.

imagine art.
if one piece of art from an artist sells for $1k. the minimum bid becomes say 10% meaning never again will any painted be bidding for less than $100 for that artist.
if the third painting goes for $5k. no painting or resells of old painting ever be at a starting bid below $500
and so on

so economics guys discuss the pros and cons of a 'moving bottom' market
i have a few idea's for both myself but lets hear from you.

whats good or bad about markets having a moving bottom and why has it not been done before
13  Economy / Economics / an economic thought experiment on: April 20, 2021, 12:20:43 AM
we should all know by now there is not 'btc' at code level.. the mining reward, transaction, data units were always in satoshi value.
yep thats right you will not find a single btc in the blockchain.nor any transaction. just an enormous amount of satoshis allocated to each utxo
btc is just a GUI / UX basket calculation made for human graphic visualisation . not a code/data fact

so imaging if 12 years ago it was not deemed as 50btc mined block reward.. but on the GUI/UX it was 5,000,000,000sat
and later they developed a basket term of bits 100sat. but never went to the basket of 50btc
in 2009: 50,000,000.00 per block
in 2012: 25,000,000.00 per block
in 2016: 12,500,000.00 per block
in 2020: 6,250,000.00 per block

with a 140 year cap of 21 trillion bits(21,000,000,000,000.00)

would people view the network as equally as 'scarce' or would they see the issuance of 50mill 'coins' every 10 minutes as not scarce. and thus not of as equal value

i just want to know other peoples feelings of how much less they would value the network if it wasnt for the user graphic interface calculations

would people in 2009 have deemed
50btc=$0.10c as good value with fee's as low as 0.00000300
50,000,000bits=$0.10c as good value with fees as low as 3bits
14  Economy / Economics / random economic ideas on: March 10, 2021, 06:43:13 AM
every couple years or so. i throw out some idea's to let the open community think about and develop if they want. no ownership from me. just some random things to inspire others to play around with to make their own.

so heres my latest thoughts
tokenising celebrities

imagine you can rate a celebrity based on:
budget of tv show/movie
profit of tv
income of celeb
minutes featured in said tv/movie
=influence of celeb in comparison to above

have an index of 1bill
movie budget: 0.3 of index($300m)
movie profit 1.2 of index($1.2b)
celeb income: 0.06 of index ($60m)
celeb minutes: 45% of movie time

then rate the celeb influence by calculating it as
income / 45% *100 = income if movie was all about them..(mainstar value)
 x 4 as their influence on profitability

so their first movie a star only in 45% of movie that is 4x profitable has a value of $533mill of the $1.2b

now.. lets tokenise it
movie director. the celebs agents. and some independant 'critics' decentrally agree on the calculated total. to award the celeb a $533m rating for the movie
each celeb can only have 500million tokens ever(fan shares)
making each share at the point of their first movie release $1.06each
the ongoing value is based on adding on the value of the movies combined

movie 2(a flop):
movie budget: 0.4(of index)($400m)
movie profit 0.5(of index)($0.5b)
celeb income: 0.06(of index)($60m)
celeb minutes: 60% of movie time
=income/60%*100*1.25=$125m value

the value of 533+125 for the only 2 movies the star was in is $658m
so each token value is now $1.316each
more movies a celeb does the better his token value will be.
this then allows celebs to 'sell' themselves. where minimum bid will be 1% above their value
fans can buy shares in them. and if the actor is successful. so are the fans.
celeb gets 100% of ICO and then gets a 1% tx fee per trade
celebs first movie roll their ICO is $1.06 ($533m extra income if they sell all coins)
later their asset VALUE could be $1.316 where the celeb would get $0.01316 per trade while it circulates between his fans
or if they didnt sell all ICO coins. they can sell their holding for $1.316 instead of $1.06

other factors are then at play. the loyalty/speculative market:
if demand for a celeb is high. potential fans may be willing to pay $1.60 for the $1.316 asset
fans hedging the celeb isnt about to retire and will make many movies that dont flop
so a celeb may get 0.016 tx fee instead of 0.013 and the current fan can get 1.584(of $1.60) instead of 1.316
the celeb however can only sell his shares at his asset value.

ill let you economic people game theory out the speculative ups and downs.
15  Other / Politics & Society / lets talk equal pay on: February 10, 2021, 07:19:52 PM
i have seen how some of the debates has been sparked before.
how 2 employees doing the same role. but one is paid more and the only difference noted is their gender.
this has sparked of conversations about the 'salary negociations at interviews get better results with male due to their better skill at negociating"

other debates are about how women dont push their managers for promotions/payrises as much as males.

other debates are about how some males are default put into higher level roles leaving woman at the bottom of the ladder. EG women are hired as secretaries where as men are recruited as administrators. thus default putting men ahead of the promotion game right from the start.

and other debates are about how woman in lower level roles demand high level pay even though they dont even have the skills to even attempted to do the higher level roles, yet they still want the equal pay as if they do the job.

i believe businesses should adopt a 20level scheme. gender neutral
which is based on 5 groups of 4 levels each
worker grader 1,2,3,4
superviser grade 1,2,3,4
manager grade 1,2,3,4
regional manager grade 1,2,3,4
corporate grade 1,2,3,4

where it then defines clear structure, clear promotion ladder grading

and the separetly where any 'benefits' are put into a 'pension pot' where after say 1 year of employment they can if they choose withdraw 6month per 2 year for any paternal/maternal break.

that way woman dont gain anything men cant have access too. where its not extra benefit. but instead same benefit but by taking it your just deducting away what you can get at pension age.

as for the grading
base it on skill/experience.
someone with no qualifications/experience. level one
if a job requires some experience,knowledge/qualification. then the pay should reflect the need. meaning no one doing a role that requires college grade/experience should be level one and instead graded on the level of experience qualification or job requirement of 234

this way it stops any debate about a fresh faced young inexperienced employee thinking they are entitled to the same pay as a a career worker that has already had the skills/experience for atleast a year

what do you people think are other best practices to ensure equal pay based on skill/level. where both men and women get equal benefits
16  Other / Politics & Society / flipflops and facepalms noted in trump impeachment on: February 09, 2021, 10:23:15 PM
so lets list all the mixed messages, hyocracies and general nonsense said in trumps impeachment
ill start with one

david Schoen (trumps defence lawyer)
"the constitution says only the currently sitting president can be impeached, and the only punishment is to leave the office of president."
nope the constitution says president, vice president and civil officer.
also the punishment is leave office, and not sit any future office

it does not say 'past/present/future'
trump still hold title of 'president' trump(in title,, not function)
like people still say 'president lincoln' over 100 years after

so. with trump titling himself as still the current president(double nailing his own coffin)
with trump still having office honours, privilege and access to special government provision like:
national security intelligence meetings
secret service protection
it must also be highlighted that if it were so easy to avoid impeachment by just resigning. then anyone getting impeached would resign, thus making impeachment moot.
17  Other / Serious discussion / BREXIT - the real deal on: December 23, 2020, 04:50:49 PM
so what is happening behind the scenes that make UK politicians and money men excited about brexit.

well. here is the main buzzword. "freeports"

when UK was part of europe UK had to obide by euro rule. meaning they could not make freeports.
also produce from the rest of the world was traded at Euro tarrif rates.
so UK hands were tied on both sides and had no control of what comes in or goes out

so UK getting in american meat had to pay set tarriff
so US getting in british meat had to pay the set tarriff

but here is the thing.

imagine america had a tarrif with europe of 20% for a certain product. but the UK product was only 10% after brexit with europe.

well now the UK can nominate a shipment port as a "freeport" where america sends the produce to the UK at X% tarriff. and then the UK processes a new order and sends it  forward to europe at 10%
the UK can then charge that 10% plus any profit to america(X)

in short if UK charge america 18% then america get to send goods to europe 2% cheaper and UK get 8% as money they can keep. pure profit

yep UK is going to get alot of profit for just being a paper middle man for goods coming from the rest of the world to europe via the UK

this deal can make billions
yep america does 290billion trade with europe. so for every 1% middleman profit uk makes from freeporting. is $2.9billion. for doing basically nothing. and thats just america. then add in canada. south america. it all adds up

cats and dogs do not have laws to say they have the right to meow or woof. nor are there laws that restrict them from meowing and woofing.

pets know they can meow and woof naturally without being told. they also know when their meows and woofs can cause trouble they stop meowing and woofing. without any law telling them

so why is it republicans cannot have the self conscious thought to know when to talk and when to shut up.

cats can roam free. no law commands them. but cats know not to stray in other cats territory.
so again why do republicans think they have to rely on government laws to tell them that they should stay away from dangers of coming into other peoples personal space

it seems republicans have less common sense than pets.

if republicans actually just respected personal space and just stopped risking the health of those around them out of pure self conscious common sense, then they will find that the restrictions would not need enforcement

its the ignorance, avoidance, and just pure resistance to actually use common sense. that makes governments have to intervene and implement rules

the idots that do anti restriction protests dont realise by actually gathering enmasse and in close proximity. its their.. yes them idiots own actions that will make restriction rules tighten not relax

protesting restrictions will not result in relaxing restrictions
when the idiots took trumps tweet of 'liberate [state]' he know it would cause chaos and cause people to be harmed and arrested. heck he even was the one that 2 weeks later called in national guard to stop the liberation, insulting all the people that did get involved in the chaos

so heres a tip to the republicans
stop listening to other stupid people just because they are leaders of your stupidity group. and actually just ask yourself these two simple things

will my actions affect myself or others negatively
am i doing this because some group leader i never met said to do it.

if someone told you to speed in your car. knowing the risks of getting in trouble with the cops. or injuring someone.. would you still do it
do you have access to the same health/legal support as the idiot that told you to do it
does that idiot do as they say. or just delegate others to get in trouble on their behalf

so just remember instead of thinking about the written and codified and government created rights.
think about your own self conscious thoughts and responsibilities
.. the common sense of self awareness and respect for yourself and others

learn not to do stupid things.
learn when to shut up and when to talk
learn when you should and should not invade personal space
learn not to impact other peoples lives negatively
19  Other / Politics & Society / the pfizer + german vaccine interime results on: November 09, 2020, 01:36:30 PM
it says so far passed the safety tests.
it says so far 90% effective

lets explain

out of 44k people on trial 22k are ones with vaccine and 22k are placebo
at this mile stone they had 94 infections noted.
but ~85 were in the placebo group and ~9 were in the vaccinated group
so they say its 90% effective because of the ratio of vaccine:placebo infection rate

its still too early to say that the other 21,990 are actually protected by the vaccine. or just been lucky enough to have not been near weird face lickers who were sick and pass it to them

they want to start a trial in january+ where people are actually put in proximity of sick people/given the active virus to see if the vaccine does protect the other 21.9k

emphasis: so far results are still not clear if its actually working or if people just are not hanging around sick people
all they can establish is so far of the numbers getting sick in the placebo group from normal life and coming into contact.. the vaccine group have had 90% less sickness

but yea only 94 infections in both groups out of 44k participants in both groups.. is just too early to be definitive
20  Other / Serious discussion / as idiots cry about 5G.. china is testing 6G on: November 08, 2020, 02:38:09 AM
so just 7 months ago we had many idiots fearing 5G and crying their lungs out about how they dont want 5G in their cities because their cult told them it penetrates their tin foil hats.

well china is yet again going to be one step ahead.. with 6G. making other countries like america and UK left right behind by multiple scales of speed delay.

i do find it funny how western countries that meant to be technically savvi are fearing tech and not wanting to stay uptodate.
but with 6G internet within reach, can we please start to get the crypto devs to finally shut up about how blockchains need to be stalled out at slow speeds of below 1mb/s.. and actually realise that countries can go faster and in next few years will be going even faster than a 10-100-1000x fold.

come on people. be techno savvi not techno feary. lets actually enjoy fast internet and its possibilities. and not fear it hoping we can go back to caveman life of survivalists offgrid
