Historians will study where that great V8s said 'American automobiles are not a thing'
And they will shake their heads in wonder and awe at the veracity of such a prognostication.

Now go to bed SpeedyMcFuckface. You clearly need rest to keep up with teh greatness.

With massive losses, Bitmain has no resources to support BCH. Illiquid BCH falls further hitting Bitmain balance sheet. Suppliers cut off credit lines & buyers wary to purchase equipment. IPO Canceled. Only solution - significant down round and VCs take over? Interesting to see!

I wonder where BTC would have been today if Wu and Ver had not started all the Bcash shit and had, instead, focussed their efforts on BTC. Would we have been this low or would real adoption begun to take hold?
Who knows where the price might be by now?

you guys making me gonna experience whisky as well, i never really drunk it, so just how is the best to start with it .... ? like when out eating its something to finish with together with a coffee or .... never was a whisky fan but as a grow older maybe my taste has been changing Wink
If it makes you feel any better, I've given several tries over the years to try to get into whisky, but my palette is quite averse to the strong bitterness of the beverage. Do not enjoy it, and it somehow feels wrong cutting it with ice or water as some have advised me to do.

Can't do Tequila either, for what it's worth. Had one particularly bad club evening in the early 90's that I still haven't fully recovered from. Even a sniff of anything agave-based results in terrifying full-body nausea that totally shuts me down for at least 5-10 minutes.

Then there's that time I fell out of a limo in front of The Viper Room, and puked all over their sidewalk, after consuming obscene amounts of white wine at a pre-party. Needless to say, I was left in the limo with my head in a box while the group went to party inside.

Man... Memory lane of the 90's.

It was an overall good decade. Coincidentally, the same decade I decided I didn't ever want to deal with XX-chromosomal life-partners ever again.
Here's what I've learned and what worked for me, YMMV.

I could only taste alcohol, nothing else. Which is why I was so suspect over all the tasting notes and wanted to dig deeper.

What I did was buy a few bottles (at the end of which I would've concluded the experiment) and drink a dram or two every other day or so.
Before drinking I would smell it a few times and really pay attention to the sensation of smell, while drinking I forced attention into the taste even though I dreaded it as it was literally just harsh alcohol (or in the case of Islay whiskies just ashtray and alcohol).
Whether smelling or tasting, I tried to derive any sort of information that I could distill from the experience (which was nothing but alcohol and ash initially). A little over a week or so in, I'd eventually get a split-second glimpse of what should be going on, and that kept me going for longer.
Some 3-4 weeks in I started smelling and testing feeble notes, which gradually kept opening up as time went by.

It's also worth noting that once I stopped drinking for a while my palette and sense of smell would decline and I would have to start over (albeit at a slightly higher level than before). So if you had large gaps between your experiments Bob, you might want to consider this.


I recommend a Glencairn glass, they're cheap and funnel the fumes in a way that is supposedly ideal for whiskies. Don't use those cool looking glasses from movies, as they let all the aromas and flavours escape.

Cover the sides of the glass with your drink by gently swirling it, don't go too violent or it did something with the alcohol that made it stand out. Smash your nose in, smell it, focus real hard on it, put it away. Repeat a few times. Then drink.

between just drinking a sip and keeping it in for 10 seconds or longer. In the latter case move it around in your mouth to cover all your taste buds. Keeping it in your mouth for a good 10 seconds also shifts the alcohol burn from your throat to your mouth, which lets it go down very smoothly regardless of proof.

Focus on the sensation and try to figure out what is happening with laser focus. This was very hard for me for a while.

As far as ice is concerned, do not use it. Do not chill your whisky. Keep it room temperature. Chilling it dulls the flavours and brings the alcohol to the front (unless that's your jam).

Water. Experiment with this. But don't dilute it. Just put in a small drop or two of water. That will do some crap where differently soluble parts of the whisky move up/down in the glass, which also changes the aroma and flavour profiles leading to a different drinking experience.
Very fun and a good way to make the learning experience more exciting, especially as your palette begins opening up. Blind tasting, especially with help of your partner is also a great way to accelerate your learning experience.


Now, with all this said. If you don't like whisky by default this is quite a challenge. I enjoyed it, but had to really power through unpleasant drink after unpleasant drink before my brain and taste buds adapted and learned to pick out increasingly refined details.

If you still want to go ahead, do some reading on different whisky types and pick a few of each that sound interesting to you. There are many different scotches which vary by region. Islay very peaty and smokey. Speysides are much more tame and sweet but no less interesting. Then there's a lot in between. Bourbons from what I can tell are more on the sweet and tame side as well, as are most Japanese whiskies.

If you don't mind paying upwards of $100 for a bottle and want to avoid bitter I can highly recommend Glenmorangie's Signet. It's almost a dessert wine. Fucking love that shit. My go to whisky for celebrating with friends who aren't into peat or heavy drinks.

Also, don't drink to a point where you get shitfaced, at least not repeatedly. It helped me to treat this challenge with discipline. Again, YMMV.

Whisky I mostly enjoy for exploring what the fuck is going on with taste buds.

Anything in particular that you'd recommend? I'd like to up my whiskey tasting game a bit.
Depends what you're into.

I'm quite fond of Caol Ila 12/18 which is peaty, but not as much as Laphroaig, and with a buttery/oily mouth feel that I quite appreciate.

My favourite whisky (so far with my limited experience) would be a Glenmorangie Signet though, which is quite sweet and actually has easily discernible notes of toffee, chocolate and less obvious coffee that you don't normally find in whisky.

As far as non-scotch goes, Japanese whiskies that I enjoyed were any Hibiki, Yamazaki, and Nikka Coffey Grain. They're much tamer than scotch, but interesting drinks nonetheless.
Thanks for the recommendations!

Haven't really played with American whiskies yet, but Maker's Mark is quite nice and very cheap.
Russel's Reserve Single Barrel Rye is a good one. And then there's options like Woodford Reserve and Wild Turkey 101... American staples that are quite nice.

Not into the really peaty stuff for whiskey, I like something in between with a hint of sweetness. Although I'm not much of a drinker anymore, had to give up weekly drinking about 5 years ago. Now I just like to taste something good and pure now and then, especially around the holidays.
Caol Ila is pretty tame on the peat and has nice smoky fruit flavours to it. But by your recommendations it sounds like the Signet is a perfect match for you (as well as the Japanese whiskies). Your drinking seems mostly the way mine is beyond the time I powered through the tasting experiments.

Unfortunately no more sMerit to throw around, but thanks a lot for the suggestions! I've added Russel's and Woodford to my list, already had Wild Turkey and quite like it, so looking forward to the other two.

Bitmain's ruination is largely down their irrational masturbation surrounding Bcash. No business run by adults would've pulled any of that shit. It's another indication that we're still not out of amateur hour.
Real rookie move to back BCH. very predatory of Ver.
Must remember their chip maker also left.
The guy who designed the chips.
they blew was it 600mn on failed wafers after that, couldn't make a goddam sha asic no more.
They were left like a car without an engine(  Wink to you know who you are). Not a real car.
hence^ hashrate drop/price drop, all miners fucked.
Is it known why he left? Not perhaps because he got a better deal? Bullish?

(protip - its really easy to up the daily withdraw limit to 100K or 250K (probably more but never tried) simply ask, and yee will be granted, there is an option to increase limits in the withdraw section)

Great. As long as it is easy. I have bad memories from the days of Polo and their $2K bollocks.

so the white...... has been deleted for a few days, and the green has arrived  to recover and cool down for a few days Smiley
i don't smoke myself for years.... very very sometimes on a birthday for lulz, but not often and especially cause my last birthday i was so sick of booze and just 5 hits of a joint .... man you cannot imagine how i was feeling @that time
but short said i'm no SMOKER myself but i don't disapprove guys for smoking cause i do understand the fun of it as well Wink

I really should live a clean life. Maybe when BTC moons.
Sorry for the OT guys!
If you're worried over smoking you can always switch to eating or drinking the stuff. No reason to swear it off for good if you enjoy it.

They clearly have something big in the making and are just lowering the hashrate by not supplying enough good miners so that they can come in with a big boom and pop all the corn themselves. Mega bullish?

It is super easy, just hit the "increase limit" bit, it asks you to how much and asks you for your reason, I simply put "want to trade higher amounts"  and both times when I tried it it took only a day or two at most to get confirmation of raised limits, no fuss no fanfare.

no actually i think jihan did capture the large scale production part of the biz very well back in the day. prolly the new companies need time to ramp up production. depends on their abilities and connections. whether they mine a bit on them beforehand, well bitmain are being sued for that, but the new guys could just structure their biz differently.
