I'm just curious what hash power would reach an Univesity professor (mathematician), making calculations on paper?
Would he be able to make at least one share?

and what would be easier for him to solve, scrypt or sha?


thanks for your opinions
   

This is hilarious ....even I thought about it at some point of time, but did not post thinking people may laugh at me... kudos ....some1 posted

Wanna know how good your are at math without realising it?

Toss a ball with your left hand and catch it in your right hand...


... congrats, you just solved a third order differential equation.

Somebody on reddit I think ran the numbers on human hash speed, wasn't very impressive, I think what also should be considered is the ULTIMATE speed a human could manage. There's some Japanese speed math techniques on a "mental" abacus, that get extremely rapid results for simple operations. Anyway, I think with those, you could possibly solve one hash every few minutes.

TL;DR See Spot run. Run Spot run. .... .... Freelance interweb comedian, for teh lulz >>> 1MqAAR4XkJWfDt367hVTv5SstPZ54Fwse6

nice article, I like the part

"...1 to 2 hashes per minute per child... with abacus 3-4 hashes ...  Do you have any idea how many idle children there are in India?"

I think the more interesting question is whether autistic savants can do any type of hashing or be taught to do it. They might be able to find the blocks orders of magnitude faster when compared to current gen asics.

I think it would be determined whichever is the easiest algorithm to solve for.. Cheesy

I saw scrypt with the easiest alt coin.

It's a simple repetitive work. no matter who does it professor or usual man that know basics of math

OK, I got it now.

Key element is not knowledge of complicated calculations, but willingness to do an annoying repetitive work.
So my professor case would be just wasting of his skills.

I'm smarter now  Wink

thank you all for contributions, and sorry for such a lame question.

Exactly. Sha256 hashing is not "complicated" but extremely tedious but simple arithmetic.
So, a young kid could do it as good as as a math PhD student or professor.

Haha university professors are not smarter than super computers at doing calculastions.
Computers aren't 'smarter' they're just better at doing a repetitive task

They're still able to do bigger and more accurate calculations, but they're not smarter.

human brain made computers and programmed them to do whatever they can do now , so its obvious who is smarter .
Alright, so by that logic - if a human builds a machine that can lift extremely heavy weights, the human is stronger because he built the machine? loool.
