Of course there is a limit to how long any organism can live. By necessity. In order for the young to live the old have to die.

Would be great to live a thousand years just to see how things play out. But if everyone did it there would be no option but to murder one another in a variety of new and creative ways. And maybe that's why there have been so many socialist states with mass murders recently.
With increase in intelligence there's an increase in how much food and space can be created or utilized. Death will be a matter of choice one day.

The point about a $15 wage demand at McDonalds, leading to workers being replaced with $35k kiosks, was an example of capitalism and the free market responding to stimulus.

Where I live they get less than $15 per day in most service jobs, plus tips!

probably the cost of living there is way cheaper as were the McDonald job pays around that 15$ Roll Eyes

Changpen Zhao reminded that Craig Wright is not Satoshi, and even delisted Bitcoin SV from the stock exchange.



I'm starting to like the guy. Even if one could make an argument that he's trying to get attention.

Did CSW pull some new stunt recently though or what's the deal here?

Adam Back Still Thinks Bitcoin Sidechains Will Win Out Over Altcoins

Quote
At the Understanding Bitcoin conference in Malta over the weekend, Adam Back, who is the CEO of Blockstream (the company that first popularized the sidechains concept), was asked whether sidechains are still a credible alternative to altcoins. In his response, Back covered the problems P2P sidechains have faced up to this point, where they stand today, and how they may become more secure in the future.

Yet another Endowment fund invest in cryptocurrencies.


Harvard is Latest Major Institutional Investor in Cryptocurrency

https://insidebitcoins.com/news/harvard-is-latest-major-institutional-investor-in-cryptocurrency/220868


Executive Summary:
The investment was in a company called Blockcstack which sold 95.8 million Blockstack Tokens to Harvard Management along with two other investors. While Harvard’s share of the tokens is less than five million it does represent a significant institutional invest directly in blockchain tokens that are not traded openly in the way Ethereum, Bitcoin and XRP are.

Well, i have two considerations.

  • 1. How comes a reputed institution, where the sharpest mind are nurtured, decides to invest in something that is borderline with Scam?
     
  • 2. How comes an Endowment fund are so rich? Tuition fees are reinvested in the school or are meant to grow this mass of money that need to be put at work outside "the campus" . I am not from the U.S. s, so this puzzles me about the US educational system. If an endowment fund has 1% of all the bitcoin ever mined (quick back of the envelope calculations convert that in 1 Billion USD), whw students are gathering piles of debt to pay that?

Madame Alexa knows how many Bitcoin you have



i will never own an alexa/google/amazon voice activated device, unless there is an actual physical switch to cut the mics out of circuit.

i didnt really understand fully the ramification till the other day when i was going over with my wife  how to recover my btc stack in case of my death. i was going to tell her the passphrase to my trezor (it would be written down also, this was just for discussion). but when i was going to tell the the passphrase i stopped. because while i dont own an alexa/google/amazon device, i do have a smartphone and smart watch, which have mics of course.

so here i am in my own house, wondering if anything i say might go out to servers that humans can access (humans review random snips of voice data).

wtf, my own home, which i have spent considerable time and money hardening both physical and electronic networks, is useless if the closed source algo that trigger sending data for no fully understood reason by the end user.

btw many modern tvs have mics and web cams built in now. and IoT stuff like security cameras, some of which have mics so you can use then for intercoms, are notoriously bad at security and most will never get updates.

so much the attach surfaces are pretty big.

now i dont assume my phone and watch and compromised, but with the amount of money i have in btc it would be foolish to at least consider these scenarios,

like any smartphone or laptop with a built in mic is powered off and put in another room when setting up wallet seed words. paranoia? sure but it is based on failings of the current tech used.

A friend of mine argued that Bitcoin consumes too much energy for mining that can be used for something else. I told him that the blockchain technology is used all over the world as a substitute to bank transfers. And the mining of the gold also consumes energy for something that actually is not used for something except to lay in tresors and r0ach basement  Grin

Thinking of it, I'll probably just have to build a room like that when I bother getting a new property. Just in case I ever need to have some serious talks with somebody. Faraday cage + no electronic devices inside (smartphones could still record and send the audio later).

I think these kinds of problems are good to have though. They keep you on the edge if you consider them and keep you from turning into a potato and they're not as bad as having to worry about getting shot or eaten by a bear.
