Blockstream Reveals Massive Bitcoin Mining Facilities, Fidelity An Early Customer

Quote
On Thursday, blockchain technology company Blockstream revealed details related to their massive Bitcoin mining data centers in Quebec, Canada and Adel, Georgia. The facilities account for a combined 300 megawatts worth of energy capacity, and they’re currently available for hosting enterprise-level mining activities, in addition to Blockstream’s own mining operations.

Quote
The size of Blockstream’s mining facilities cannot be overstated. According to Blockstream CSO Samson Mow, the facilities would account for roughly 6 exahashes of Bitcoin mining power if used at full capacity with the latest ASIC mining hardware

This is 7.5% of mining hashpower (conservative hypotesis the miners are are all already turned on now).

These metrics are measuring "work done", not security.

More "work done" doesn't necessarily mean "more security".

For example take the following two blockchains:

    Bitcoin Cash (SHA-256 @ 2 PH/s) or ($5/s)
    Zcash (Equihash @ 4 GH/s) or ($3/s)

Thank you very much.
Appreciated and digging into that.

Behold the power of positivity.



Things never seem so bad with a big smile and a thumbs up.

We can say "Only in USA", truly unimaginable almost anywhere in the world. Collecting political points in one such tragedy should attract voters to vote for Trump again? Will one mass murder per day soon become two per day? Maybe Purge is not far from becoming reality...

"Federal Reserve announces plan to develop a new round-the-clock real-time payment and settlement service to support faster payments"





Follow up article

FedNow — US Federal Reserve Payment Tool a Threat to Banks, Not Crypto

Quote

Banks, not cryptos?

Notably, the Fed’s announcement starts with an emphasis on “the rapid evolution of technology,'' which enables the Federal Reserve and the payment industry “to modernize the nation's payment system and establish a safe and efficient foundation for the future.” However, neither the press release nor the enclosed FAQs make a single mention of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Libra, blockchain or even digital currencies at large.

Indeed, it seems that FedNow wants to topple large banking institutions rather than cryptocurrencies. In fact, banking giants Citigroup, Bancorp and JPMorgan Chase have already started fighting the government’s new effort, as it seems to overlap with their own real-time payments system
, the Clearing House, which the banks launched in 2017, following a cumulative $1 billion investment injection from those participating.

It is RIDICULOUS how bullish this is for Bitcoin. 

I watched this happen in the music industry with the advent of lossy compressed audio (MP3s).  The RIAA started doing things like taxing blank CDs and suing napster users while the likes of Apple, and eventually Spotify built the rails for the new music delivery system for the world.

By the time it was all over the music industry had been changed from the outside in.

This is what Bitcoin will be doing to the financial systems of the world over the next 5 years.

They actually added a verse to Mahatma's old song:

First they ignore you...
Then they laugh at you...
Then they fight you...
Then they lose focus , forget about you briefly, and start cannibalizing each other and themselves...

Then you win.

That's not what this is.  It's the kikes trying to do an exact repeat the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, centralizing all power and control over everything.  In the process of this centralization of power, many people who thought they were rich or important wind up dead in a ditch, so they're all fighting over who gets to be at the top rather than the mid level people who wind up stripped of all their assets and laying in a ditch.  Virtually nobody benefits from Jewish communism.  All the mid level people who thought they were part of the team just get robbed and murdered by the kikes at the top to consolidate their power.

Sixteenth Amendment ratification arguments have been rejected in every court case where they have been raised and have been identified as legally frivolous.[3]

Yes, they have been rejected. Without ever addressing the facts of the matter. At least in every case I have reviewed.

Whaddaya expect? Statists gonna state.

You live under a common law system.  Judges make the law by interpreting the constitution, legislation and previous cases.  If a judge says it, it’s law until overturned.   That’s just how it works. If you want to tip over that particular apple cart, you are going to have to go back to the Norman Conquest in 1066.

I think we are in violent agreement on this part. However...

If the courts were to respect the law -- especially common law -- they would be able to trace their decisions through the precedents to the point where any matter of law was considered and judged upon. The basis of the income tax is a matter that cannot be traced back to a source decision. Because there exists none.

United States v Thomas carefully trawls through the ratification argument. This is clearly a source decision that the 16th Amendment has been properly ratified.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_protester_Sixteenth_Amendment_arguments

Thanks. I'll absorb it when time permits.

Though from a superficial glance, I have the following comments:
- lower court decision not necessarily applicable to courts other than 7th Circuit Illinois jurisdiction
- timing of 1986 is kind of too little too late (I guess better late than never)
- seems to cover only the contention that enactment of differing texts is still valid for the amendment process
- most germane, as a rebuttal to my points, completely ignores the lack legislative and regulatory authority and misapplication

There's no point for the FED to  posa a "threat to banks" or "topple large banking institutions".

Quite. Especially in light of the fact the the FED is actually a private corporation owned by the banks.
