You can brute force Powerball with a pen and paper.  That’s what the population is doing every week.

But there is a high cost for each guess.

Indeed.  Now I need to go away and think about what that might mean in crypto.  What if miners had to pay a fee to mine but that was their entry ticket to a prize pool?  What does that mean in game theory terms?

I had not seen that before.  Thank you.

It would be helpful to get the original Japanese and have a second opinion from a native speaker as to the meaning of the bolded words.

Satoshi left us, he could have helped Grin

This is his site so he might hear you Wink


Satoshi does not want to have anything to do with us or anyone for that matter. He/she is just probably chill in some semi-tropical place like Azerbaijan, South Korea or Chile, with a drink in his/her hand, with his/her family by his/her side. Smiley

And the reward distribution system is a mess, they tell me.

Miners do pay a fee to mine, hardware cost and electricity cost.

Hardware is paid once up front, not per guess, and electricity is free in certain places.

Gotta be honest, those 3 recent bull flags look fake as hell. I wouldn't be shocked to see another dip sometime later.

Won't change my strategy though. Buy and hodl!

Even in places like China where electricity is extremely cheap, miners often have to sign 6-12 month power contracts in advance.

I don't really see that as different to buying say 10,000 scratch cards in one go. The major difference is that your scratch card's odds of winning don't change (mainly for the worse) every 2016 guesses.

What fixed the transaction backlog btw, did the major exchanges go segwit?

Some seem to think that they slapped the bogeyman Coinbase into shape -- they are now batching the outputs for multiple parties into single transactions.

Segwit tx's in general count for some small portion.

OTOH, the majority could be a simple reduction in demand.
