what is the cheapest solution to use bitcoin during such situations? without power and internet: https://pjmedia.com/trending/internet-collapses-in-venezuela-with-80-offline-twitter-youtube-soundcloud-blocked/

which battery powered satallite or radio (with enough range) device can you recommend?
I am not expert here, just avid reader of news on the interent.
I would start from those two alternatives:

  • goTenna A small device helping build a mesh network between users, each one independently powered, maybe by solar panels, until eventually one of them, maybe many hops away, is connected to the internet.
     
  • TxTenna offline Bitcoin transactions through a collaboration of GoTenna — the radio mesh network communication company — and Samourai Wallet, the privacy and security-focused Bitcoin wallet.
     
  • LoRa Alliance is a network based on Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) LoRaWAN, based on an open source and free standard allowing to connect battery powered "things" to the internet trough local, regional or national networks over unlicensed spectrum.
     
  • You could use even good'old traditional radio waves, like the old CB devices: you can broadcast Bitcoin transactions to the opposite side of the world making them conveniently bouncing on the upper ionosphere.
     


More on that on each websites.
If you want to read how this would work in reality you can check this entertaining read: Completely Offline Bitcoin Transactions

So I would say that in a wild, disrupted scenario, "cash is king", then physical gold, proven worldwide accepted SoV trough the millenia, but then third unexpected SoV would be Bitcoin.
Good luck using any centralised system like Credit Cards or Electronic Cash, requiring electricity at PoS point, at the telecommunication network, and at the central server all at the same exact time (this requirement is not necessary for Bitcoin where transaction can be broadcasted at different times).

EDIT: Some edit to be added in my monthly report.

This is Crap.
This is a normal ETF indexed on loosely blockchain related (wahtever this means) companies (TMSC, AMD, CME... etc).
This is hot hair bullshit marketing.

I do believe in science and math, that's precisely why I don't believe in a man made environmental change. It's an unproven hypothesis.
LOL how?

How could you deny the environmental pollution causing by the industrial smokes, cars etc?
How could you deny the fact that we are destroying the environmental ecosystem by cutting the forests?
How could you deny that we are killing animals and imbalancing the entire food chain?
How could you deny the climate change?
How could you deny the increased sea level?

Do you know what will happen if the last bee dies?
Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjID1ugr1fo

It is called willful ignorance, most distasteful in an otherwise intelligent individual.

One of the largest challenges we face is the constant erosion of aesthetic expectations.  I sit here in middle age, aghast at the degradation I have seen in my short lifetime.  People younger than me never even saw it before we logged off the Pacific Northwest, before we built out the strip malls, before the fisheries started to collapse.  They have no reference point to know or value the beauty that I remember, and my recollections begin in the early 1970s when the accelerated decline had been well underway for some time.

Anthropogenic climate change may or may not turn out to be significant, but the dystopian cesspool we are creating is very, very real.

You can now buy a Porn Pass at your local U.K. news agent to allow you to view porn.  Courtesy of the conservative government





So, everyone who wants to watch porn in the UK will have to register his ID ?
That's just crazy.

I'm not trying to be a cunt here, but it's important not to talk about things you don't even remotely understand the scope of as if they were fact.

Try harder... and while your at it, try practicing what your preaching. Now gtfo and go invest some of those "millions" into an actual education.
I don't think I need any more degrees. And I clearly state when I don't know the conclusion, which you would be able to tell if you read any of my numerous posts today. So how about you fuck off instead?

What is going to be blocked?
    The government has said websites operating on a commercial basis will have to comply with the law. This is where things get sticky. The Online Pornography (Commercial Basis) Regulations 2018 sets out a few stipulations around what counts as commercial pornographic content and there are a few different stipulations that will catch a lot of websites. Something can be classed as commercial porn under the law if it has to be paid for or if the person making it will be paid or receive some kind of benefit. Websites that have more than one-third of their content falling into previous categories will need to have an age verification system in place.

While pictures like that look impressive, they're not necessarily significant. Humans only occupy some 10% of the land on earth, which just isn't much.
...

I see this one a lot and it strikes me as lazy thinking.  Sure, we could fit the entire human population on a standard residential lot in West Texas...but we don't.

Humans, of course, occupy and change the most productive areas.  The areas we leave are generally inhospitable to us, or much of anything else.

A good bit of the non ocean surface of this planet is rocks, ice or sand.  The 10% that we are camped on is most of the best, and we harvest off of more than that.

Do you understand what "not necessarily" means, or are you making up conclusions on my behalf again? You do raise a fair point, bar the deliverance. But with indoor farming we can turn just about anything hospitable with today's technology.

Help we could turn those massive insane caves into massive indoor farms too. People often forget about how insanely large underneath us is.
As well as above us.

The original point though was that the planet likely doesn't give a shit about us pooping ourselves on minuscule portions of land. @jojo

Let's hope whomever mines it is kind enough to return it. It's been done before.
Why should they? seriously.
BTC is personal financial sovereignty: this comes with responsibility and accountability.
I see no point giving up profitability to compensate stupidity (or bad UX choices, or whatever).
Harsh, but fair (this is a literal translation of an Italian saying, my broken English cannot find an idiomatic equivalence).

I lease my Mercedes to be honest, I like to drive a new car because I’m a snob. No worse investment (ok maybe BCH or BSV are worse Wink) than buying a brand new car yourself, as soon as you drive it off the forecourt it starts losing money.

Not many people own a car any way, they have finance on it which isn’t much better than leasing. I suppose you have the car fully paid off at the end as an asset but then it’s old & lost loads of value any way.

Just my opinion though.

I will concede that cars are an expensive habit.  I have owned cars since I was 15.  Admittedly, my first few cars were not very good cars, but still they are also expensive to maintain.

Regarding buying new cars, and especially luxury cars, they tend to lose the vast majority of their value in the first three years, so if you buy three year old cars, they might still be like new (depending on how they were driven, of course), but have already done their most dramatic depreciation. 

By the way Toyotas and Hondas don't tend to depreciate as much as Mercedes and BMWs.
