It's hard to do in areas where things burned down as you can't say: "it will always burn".

Nothing worthy is easy. Wink

But afa burn alot of that is self inflicted from years of stopping natural fires so basically we need to find out how to balance the amounts of material available to the eventual fires.

flooding-I tend to agree, but then we would have much much less space to live.
Somehow, dutch fixed the flooding problem. It's just the matter of proper engineering.
If such endeavor is expensive, then local gov has to do something.

There are far too many resources wasted on fighting a losing battle with rising global water levels.

Maybe Craig will just settle for all his patents, whatever nChain is worth when fully dissolved, and a lifetime of employment as butler for the Kleimans. That would be fair.

Fair as long as Craig does not have any abilities to carry out future scams/frauds.

He could still carry out scams in his capacity as butler... Pocketing loose change and such. Assuredly his internet and media access privileges will be revoked as part of the deal.

A very interesting article about Ransomware, the famous "Ryuk" has caused a lot of profits for hackers, his rise in the Bitcoin era has been huge. The impact has been profound, however this type of news is relevant for highlighting its Bitcoin based rewards.

Quote
“Ransomware has helped put bitcoin in the news and we know that the price of bitcoin goes up whenever it is in the news,” stated De Montfort University’s Cartwright  “So, ransomware also partly drives the price of bitcoin.”

Ryuk has hit more than 500 faculties, now security specialists expect many more attacks in 2020.

How much alt coin diversification is needed? 0%?

I am curious about this: in a scenario where btc is 100K, how the on-chain fees would look like: $1, $10 or $100? Some are predicting $100.
Presumably, high on-chain fees would move many tx to LN, but i am specifically interested in on-chain fees.
Theoretically, if btc is 100K and you transfer just 0.1BTC, then even $10 fee (which is about 200X current fee) is only 0.1% of the tx value.
Raise the fee to $100 and it is 1% which is getting into vicinity of what we call high fees (like 3% paypal fee or similar credit card fees).

The point I am trying to make is that with $10-100 fees, low value tx (below $1000-10000) would be squeezed and hopefully directed toward LN.
In general, at some point I would suggest to consolidate smaller wallets while the fees are still low. BTW, today 2sats/byte does the job fast, no need to pay higher.

We also know that there is a range, too and there is fluctuation of busy times and less busy times.  Yeah, in late 2017/early 2018 the network was being attacked, and if you wanted transactions to go through right away, you may have needed to spend $20 to $100 in fees during that time.... you could spend a lot lower fees, but it might take a few days.. and you could even spend lower fees and it would have ended up taking a month or two if you were really cheap and you sent low fee transactions (close to free) in the beginning of December 2017(during the worst of the period), those low fee transactions might not have cleared until the end of January.  There were middle ground amounts, too, and there were periods in which it appeared the mempool was clearing up, but the mem pool did not really clear up until the end of January 2018 when the spam attack stopped.

It is not easy to speculate exactly what are going to be the various options available come $100k bitcoins, and if $100k bitcoins are going to be a sustained price at sometime within the next 2-5 years.  But, anyhow, if you want transactions to go through faster, you pay higher fees, and 1% does not seem to be unreasonable for what you are getting, which is way the fuck more than paypal or credit card fees, like you mentioned), depending on what you are trying to accomplish, especially when you have a bank in your pocket and all of that actual meaningful potential power.  On chain and off chain, and options are still going to be something that is hard to speculate about exactly, because some options might become more feasible in the future too, whether lightning network or some other yet unknown option(s).

Fascinating how easily we go from "it's not happening so it doesn't matter" to "it's too late so it doesn't matter".

Eerily similar to how conspiracies are insanely outrageous until suddenly humdrum and un-newsworthy.

Some people seem to be stubbornly determined to avoid their share of responsibility.

Yes I've very much enjoyed it. They got the visuals of the game very close and the world just feels right. Cavill is a great Geralt too!

The last bar presents the total of all of them, any graph should be carefully observed and read the data, not just looking at the colors. Cheesy

But if this is the norm (I don't know) when I publish the finished graphic, I will remove the totals bar.

thx

edit:



that's better?

Nice graph.

That being said, I think the number of hacked exchanges per year is not taking into account the increase in number of exchanges. It would seem that security/risks is getting worse, when maybe it is the contrary. I would suggest to compare the figure of "hacked exchanged / total number of exchanges active in that year". That would probably give a better overall view of how security is progressing. And show how in the first years probably there were even more hacks than exchanges active (repeated hacks).

Yes, it would be an interesting fact to consider, but I don't think it is possible to know the number of active exchanges per year.
Logic would be as you say, last years more security, but hackers have also reduced the number of targets for their attacks,
they focus on hacking high volume exchanges and this reduces the amount of exchanges that meet this feature.

Malaysian Prime Minister has said that he agrees with Iran’s suggestion on using cryptocurrency as an alternative to the US dollar.

Quote
Earlier, Rouhani had proposed the use of cryptocurrency among Muslim nations as an alternative to the US dollar.

Could seriously contribute to some very real controversies with bitcoin in the middle of it (unless they are considering other crypto currencies, such as shitcoin Bcash SV?   or some other less liquid quasi-centralized scam nonsense? such as Ethereum of Tron hahahahaha)

99.99% Chances are they are going to create new one..

Only if they manage to stop fighting with each others or put their differences aside, atm ( Iran,Turkey, Malaysia) all want to be a leader of Ummah and Saudis has some reservations in this regard.

These quotes from Hal Finney's 1992 "electronic banking" proposal illustrate what a visionary he really was.

His questions arguably foreshadow native digital cash, privacy, PoW mining, predetermined money supply, and competing cryptocurrencies.

https://www.coindesk.com/hal-finney-bitcoin-words

It's always nice to read any type of Hal Finney article.

If Finney were among us, things would be very different, I don't know in which direction, but I think we would have advanced in many ways, in adoption, in the use of nodes, I think he would have fought for the interests of all bitcoiners and would have slowed somehow the big mining farms.
