How much alt coin diversification is needed? 0%?

Let's go down the rabbit hole of debate, shall we. Let's dispel the delusion.

Bitcoin: mostly speculation
Use: store of value, (up to certain level) payment network

Ethereum: mostly speculation
Use: decentralised computing, USP less clear than Bitcoin

why don't you say that bitcoin is sound money and ethereum is not?

Current use case for ethereum is scam coins, and it is merely a lame attempt to provide something that it proclaims bitcoin cannot, when bitcoin would also be able to provide such use cases, if ethereum were not already occupying that space in a decent (albiet likely temporary) kind of way.

A 'pebble' falling from several kilometers (without any acceleration except for gravity) will kill you I think. At least that's what I remember my calculation of over a decade ago.

Did you account for air drag, or did you only consider gravitational acceleration?

At that time it would have lost all of its rotation and probably would be just tumbling with added air drag. A parabolic shoot on the other hand.... But still most probably not deadly... if it was so unfortunate to hit someone in the head/eyes/neck. Which is like an extremely small probability in itself. A hit to the body of person with clothes would probably just bounce (not without some moderate impact pain depending on clothes thickness) and not penetrate.

Sigh..we have to get ya'll some more edjumacation..just saying.

Quote
Out of the more than 500 shots fired from the test platform only 4 falling bullets struck the platform and one fell in the boat near the platform. One of the bullets striking the platform left a 1/16 inch deep mark in the soft pine board. The bullet struck base first.

Quote
Based on the results of these tests it was concluded that the bullet return velocity was about 300 f.p.s. For the 150 gr. bullet this corresponds to an energy of 30 foot pounds. Earlier the Army had determined that, on the average, it required 60 foot pounds of energy to produce a disabling wound. Based on this information, a falling 150 gr. service bullet would not be lethal, although it could produce a serious wound.

https://web.archive.org/web/20080331192517/http://www.loadammo.com/Topics/March01.htm

https://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/termv.html

We could dive into Stokes Law or Reynolds numbers but I think I will just leave it with this.

I dont know about you but a 1/16 inch dent in my skull sounds pretty painful...if not immediately lethal.

From your own data:

- Most of the bullets did not even hit the platform. (What I said about human pobablation density).
- 4 hit (out of 500), but only ONE left a 1.5mm mark on wood?

So even in that rare case most probably not deadly even if a head hit (surely painful) and, according to your own data: "Based on this information, a falling 150 gr. service bullet would not be lethal, although it could produce a serious wound"

It would not even penetrate the skull. There is hair, skin, meat, and bones all of which would cushion that 1.5mm dent better than wood. A serious concussion? Maybe. A slight probability of a deadly concussion? Yeah, but very slight indeed.

Anyway, no, I wouldn't want that random "lucky" bullet hitting me right in the middle of my fucking head or, even worse, an eye Smiley
In other words an unacceptable risk.

Unacceptable? It depends. How much would would I get for you to fire 500 rounds straight up in the air and me standing in place waiting for the more than improbable non-lethal head hit?

P.S.: I have good hair, mind you.
You'd have to pay me for it. I know how americans love lawsuits. Besides it's not about you mister narcissist. It's about the people it actually does happen to, especially those who did not consent to random falling bullets. The more it's accepted the more people will do it the more people will get hurt.

Wear a helmet and shoulder pads, for the sake of science.

So I guess people believe that as long as a crypto is secure, scales, has a good wallet, can run a node, and runs on good hardware, then....

....it really doesn't NEED TO HAVE ANY PURPOSE FOR EXISTING BEYOND THOSE THINGS TO BE A SUCCESS??

Are you guys for real? Those are all just technical details, that can be easily cloned and replicated with the click of a mouse.

I don't understand why you, Torque, have this tendency to describe some general point of view, and than attribute such point of view to "you guys."  

Is this just an ongoing figure of speech of yours, or are you always engaging in such generalization fallacies in your way of thinking about matters?  

As if you are the only person that has any original perspective, and all other thoughts fall into a glob of "you guys think?"   Or a Straw man, way of presentation?

They know who they are JJG. Obviously not you. Unless you secretly think the shitcoins du jour have any purpose for existing or real world value, in which, I'd be glad to debate that with you.


ETH's "valid use case" today is it's facilitation of scams (including ICOs), so whether we like it or not, ETH has a "valid" (even though scam dependent) "today use case," no?

Sorry but no. To facilitate scams is not a value-add purpose for existing. That's total bullshit.

I am not going to argue with you about any alt coin having any long term value, and that is part of the reason that I do not hold much alt coins at all.  Currently, I think that my total altcoin holdings amounts to less than 1% of my total crypto value territory; however, I still will maintain that the facilitation of scams is a short-term use case that can be quite profitable by a large number of folks who want to get involved in such shady business.  Even if its longer term fundamentals are not present, such scams and pump and dump use cases could be prolonged for much longer than either you or I are likely to live 50 years or more. In the end, the scams are likely to collapse and be replaced by other scams, but I am not going to concede to you that there is not value in that, which you seem to be caught upon long term viability which seems to be a bit of a different question.

Although he's got my address so he might have come for me.

Now safely deleted from my PMs and since I can't remember what happened an hour ago your opsec is safe again. Even if baddies roasted me for hours I couldn't tell them a thing. Try to behave just in case as they may not believe me.

Thanks, but to be honest, I don't have any opsec to talk about.

Did you account for air drag, or did you only consider gravitational acceleration?

I took an average pebble out my garden. It weighs 10 grams and has a mean diameter of about 20 mm. If we assume it were perfectly spherical with a drag coefficient of 0.47, travelling through air with standard density of 1.225 kg/m^3, and plug the figures into the formula for terminal velocity we get: sqrt((2*0.01*9.81)/(1.225*(3.14*0.01^2)*0.47)) = 33 m/s or 119 km/h. If we pipe that into E = 1/2*m*v^2 for energy, we get ~5.5 J or ~4 ft-lb.

Or in other words, I need Bitcoin to do something exciting.

Perfectly spherical bullets are way different to regular bullets that end up tumbling as soon as they lose the rotational speed with a way higher air drag.

Much of the penetration of a regular gunshot is thanks to its rotational speed. That's why pipeguns are not that effective, even at very short distance, unless properly directed against unprotected vital points (neck, eyes, temple, etc).

To the mooooooon!!! weeeeeeeeee Tongue

WO is a surprise box. I share this hobby, sports shooting, it seems that they understand a lot about ballistics. Wink
