GPU temperature increases when idle and I'm off the computer. Sign of Bitcoin Miner?

I downloaded CAM to monitor my GPU temps and recently I have noticed that whenever I'm afk for more than 5 minutes, the GPU temps spike up to 81 degrees and stay around there until I come back and do anything to my computer(moving mouse or pressing keys). Windows Defender does not show anything when scanned.
Edit: On 100% load as well.

If Bitcoin forks to a new PoW algorithm, Bitcoin miners won't sit idle ...

... they'd use their hardware to mine the next most profitable SHA-256 coin right? Surely, the security and price of that coin would go through the roof.
Am I on the right track, or am I missing something. Just asking for a friend.

Fun with low fee TXNs on Mainnet

Here's a 0.493 sat/vB TXN I put on mainnet today. You'll have to use the SoChain block explorer to see it though. I give it a 3% chance of getting confirmed, but we'll wait and see. The TXN is a donation to [email protected] since I use their seeder for my network herder.
So last month, I voiced the unpopular opinion that node operators should lower the minrelaytxfee setting to allow low-fee TXNs to propagate more freely throughout the network. Then I asked why miners weren't mining 0.999 sat/vB TXNs during idle periods since it should be more profitable than mining no TXNs at all. Finally I wrote a node herder to walk the network looking for node operators that were running minrelaytxfee below the default (1000 sat). After walking about 26% of the network, turns out about 5% of nodes are allowing low fee TXNs.
So in that vein of discussion, I decided to just sign some low-fee TXNs and send them to the 5% of nodes I found and see what happens. To my surprise it showed up on one of the 23 block explorers I tried after broadcasting it. Surprisingly, that comes out to about 5% of explorers accepting low fee TXNs as well. So hopefully 5% or so of the miners will confirm low fee TXNs. We'll see.
BTW, to do this, this is what I did.
  1. Pair my HW wallet to Electrum
  2. Use the paytomany Electrum API to craft a TXN below 1 sat/vB
  3. Import the TXN to sign in Electrum
  4. Ran a full node with minrelaytxfee set to 1 sat (0.001 sat/vB)
  5. Walked the network to find a good number of low-fee peers
  6. Use bitcoin addnode API to herd my node to the low-fee peers I discovered.
  7. Use bitcoin sendrawtransaction API to broadcast TXN
Wait and see if it can propagate to a miner and if a miner will accept it.
BTW, there is a PR to lower the minrelaytxfee in core, but it's dragged on for years. The setting was lowered about every year or so in the early days, but hasn't been touched for many years now.

New CryptoClickers is finally released on multiple platforms!

Hello guys! I am happy to say that today was an amazing release day with tons of supporting people! (Also thank you u/zenongreat for making a post about it :D)
It's been quite the stressful, but also educational and exciting journey from CryptoClickers: Legacy Edition (old version) release to remaking the game, then balancing the game, fixing tons of bugs, spending days on optimization (your CPU will be happy), and then the final release!
This game has been in development for a total of 3 years (1.5ish from each legacy and the new version). I have learned a ton and gained so much support from my amazing community and the amazing incremental_games community that all of us have formed.
Anyways let's talk about the game:
- Has a double prestige layer system (eventually three).
- Has tons of challenges/speedrun challenges.
- Two major upgrade trees.
- Lots of game modes that all bind together.
- Numbers up to the e10000s.
- Has hourly events that change everyday and runs on a weekly schedule.
- It's cross-platform, you can export and import your save on any device you may desire.
- Has a friendly Discord community
- Planning to add lots of content and improve the game along it's journey!

Here's whats going to happen in the future:
- Third Prestige (Will be a fully customizable UI such as colors, icons, prefixes, and names).
- Continuous UI updates, now I think we can all agree the UI is definitely not new user friendly. It's very clustered and messy for some people. I want to improve this in the best ways possible till it's near perfect.
- Events Updates, the current events are a bit stale, all except the Friday event will be replaced with some cool events I have planned!
- Bug fixes and balancing, please, if you find any small bug or grammar error, I would love to fix it. I want this game to be at its best state at all times!
- Possible seasonable events?
I wanted to thank everyone who has been here with me since the start of development, everyone who has contributed in any form of support, I appreciate you and everything you have done for me, the game, and the community. I appreciate all the beta testers for helping me get through the annoying bugs and balances that were made. I love all my staff, I love my community, and especially I love the Incremental Games community. I also wanted to mention that Antimatter Dimensions and Idling to rule the gods were my biggest inspirations for the game, so thanks to the devs for making their amazing games. Thank you guys and I hope you enjoy my game. I will be actively working on this!

Spoiler: If you are interested in a small story, otherwise you can ignore!
3 years ago, this game was only a little project of mine for an AP computer science Principles project portion of the AP test. I haven’t stopped working on it since then because I knew what I have been working on and what I have been learning over the years is worth it. Over a year or 2 ago I released what is now CryptoClickers Legacy. It was a mess, it was buggy, it drained everyone’s batteries like a Bitcoin Miner, heating up peoples phones, had a crappy launch on Android and was hard to maintain the crappy code it had. I then started the new CryptoClickers which I release today. A much more optimized, balanced, and overall developed game.
Edit: I am currently working on improving the UI and adding an interactive tutorial where you complete tasks up to the first challenge

[OWL WATCH] Waiting for "IOTA TIME" 20; Hans's re-defined directions for DLT

Disclaimer: This is my editing, so there could be some misunderstandings...
--------------------------------------------
wellwho오늘 오후 4:50
u/Ben Royce****how far is society2 from having something clickable powered by IOTA?
Ben Royce오늘 오후 4:51
demo of basic tech late sep/ early oct. MVP early 2021
---------------------------------------------------
HusQy
Colored coins are the most misunderstood upcoming feature of the IOTA protocol. A lot of people see them just as a competitor to ERC-20 tokens on ETH and therefore a way of tokenizing things on IOTA, but they are much more important because they enable "consensus on data".
Bob
All this stuff already works on neblio but decentralized and scaling to 3500 tps
HusQy
Neblio has 8 mb blocks with 30 seconds blocktime. This is a throughput of 8 mb / 30 seconds = 267 kb per second. Transactions are 401+ bytes which means that throughput is 267 kb / 401 bytes = 665 TPS. IOTA is faster, feeless and will get even faster with the next update ...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
HusQy
Which DLT would be more secure? One that is collaboratively validated by the economic actors of the world (coporations, companies, foundations, states, people) or one that is validated by an anonymous group of wealthy crypto holders?
HusQy
The problem with current DLTs is that we use protection mechanisms like Proof of Work and Proof of Stake that are inherently hard to shard. The more shards you have, the more you have to distribute your hashing power and your stake and the less secure the system becomes.
HusQy
Real world identities (i.e. all the big economic actors) however could shard into as many shards as necessary without making the system less secure. Todays DLTs waste trust in the same way as PoW wastes energy.
HusQy
Is a secure money worth anything if you can't trust the economic actors that you would buy stuff from? If you buy a car from Volkswagen and they just beat you up and throw you out of the shop after you payed then a secure money won't be useful either :P
HusQy
**I believe that if you want to make DLT work and be successful then we need to ultimately incorporate things like trust in entities into the technology.**Examples likes wirecard show that trusting a single company is problematic but trusting the economy as a whole should be at ...
**... least as secure as todays DLTs.**And as soon as you add sharding it will be orders of magnitude more secure. DLT has failed to deliver because people have tried to build a system in vacuum that completely ignores things that already exist and that you can leverage on.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HusQy
Blockchain is a bit like people sitting in a room, trying to communicate through BINGO sheets. While they talk, they write down some of the things that have been said and as soon as one screams BINGO! he hands around his sheet to inform everybody about what has been said.
HusQy
If you think that this is the most efficient form of communication for people sitting in the same room and the answer to scalability is to make bigger BINGO sheets or to allow people to solve the puzzle faster then you will most probably never understand what IOTA is working on.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HusQy
**Blockchain does not work with too many equally weighted validators.****If 400 validators produce a validating statement (block) at the same time then only one can survive as part of a longest chain.**IOTA is all about collaborative validation.
**Another problem of blockchain is that every transaction gets sent twice through the network. Once from the nodes to the miners and a 2nd time from the miners as part of a block.**Blockchain will therefore always only be able to use 50% of the network throughput.
And****the last problem is that you can not arbitrarily decrease the time between blocks as it breaks down if the time between blocks gets smaller than the average network delay. The idle time between blocks is precious time that could be used for processing transactions.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
HusQy
I am not talking about a system with a fixed number of validators but one that is completely open and permissionless where any new company can just spin up a node and take part in the network.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
HusQy
Proof of Work and Proof of Stake are both centralizing sybil-protection mechanism. I don't think that Satoshi wanted 14 mining pools to run the network.
And "economic clustering" was always the "end game" of IOTA.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
HusQy
**Using Proof of Stake is not trustless. Proof of Stake means you trust the richest people and hope that they approve your transactions. The rich are getting richer (through your fees) and you are getting more and more dependant on them.**Is that your vision of the future?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

HusQy
Please read again exactly what I wrote. I have not spoken of introducing governance by large companies, nor have I said that IOTA should be permissioned. We aim for a network with millions or even billions of nodes.

HusQy
That can't work at all with a permissioned ledger - who should then drop off all these devices or authorize them to participate in the network? My key message was the following: Proof of Work and Proof of Stake will always be if you split them up via sharding ...

HusQy
... less secure because you simply need fewer coins or less hash power to have the majority of the votes in a shard. This is not the case with trust in society and the economy. When all companies in the world jointly secure a DLT ...

HusQy
... then these companies could install any number of servers in any number of shards without compromising security, because "trust" does not become less just because they operate several servers. First of all, that is a fact and nothing else.

HusQy
Proof of Work and Proof of Stake are contrary to the assumption of many not "trustless" but follow the maxim: "In the greed of miners we trust!" The basic assumption that the miners do not destroy the system that generates income for them is fundamental here for the ...

HusQy
... security of every DLT. I think a similar assumption would still be correct for the economy as a whole: The companies of the world (and not just the big ones) would not destroy the system with which their customers pay them. In this respect, a system would be ...

HusQy
... which is validated by society and the economy as a whole probably just as "safely" as a system which is validated by a few anonymous miners. Why a small elite of miners should be better validators than any human and ...

HusQy
... To be honest, companies in this world do not open up to me. As already written in my other thread, safe money does not bring you anything if you have to assume that Volkswagen will beat you up and throw you out of the store after you ...

HusQy
... paid for a car. The thoughts I discussed say nothing about the immediate future of IOTA (we use for Coordicide mana) but rather speak of a world where DLT has already become an integral part of our lives and we ...

HusQy
... a corresponding number of companies, non-profit organizations and people have used DLT and where such a system could be implemented. The point here is not to create a governance solution that in any way influences the development of technology ...

HusQy
... or have to give nodes their OK first, but about developing a system that enables people to freely choose the validators they trust. For example, you can also declare your grandma to be a validator when you install your node or your ...

HusQy
... local supermarket. Economic relationships in the real world usually form a close-knit network and it doesn't really matter who you follow as long as the majority is honest. I also don't understand your criticism of censorship, because something like that in IOTA ...

HusQy
... is almost impossible. Each transaction confirms two other transactions which is growing exponentially. If someone wanted to ignore a transaction, he would have to ignore an exponential number of other transactions after a very short time. In contrast to blockchain ...

HusQy
... validators in IOTA do not decide what is included in the ledger, but only decide which of several double spends should be confirmed. Honest transactions are confirmed simply by having other transactions reference them ...

HusQy
... and the "validators" are not even asked. As for the "dust problem", this is indeed something that is a bigger problem for IOTA than for other DLTs because we have no fees, but it is also not an unsolvable problem. Bitcoin initially has a ...

HusQy
Solved similar problem by declaring outputs with a minimum amount of 5430 satoshis as invalid ( github.com/Bitcoin/Bitcoi…). A similar solution where an address must contain a minimum amount is also conceivable for IOTA and we are discussing ...

HusQy
... several possibilities (including compressing dust using cryptographic methods). Contrary to your assumption, checking such a minimum amount is not slow but just as fast as checking a normal transaction. And mine ...

HusQy
... Chrysalis it becomes relevant and appropriate solutions are discussed and then implemented accordingly. I think that was the most important thing first and if you have further questions just write :)

HusQy
And to be very clear! I really appreciate you and your questions and don't see this as an attack at all! People who see such questions as inappropriate criticism should really ask whether they are still objective. I have little time at the moment because ...

HusQy
... my girlfriend is on tour and has to take care of our daughter, but as soon as she is back we can discuss these things in a video. I think that the concept of including the "real world" in the concepts of DLT is really exciting and ...

HusQy
... that would certainly be exciting to discuss in a joint video. But again, that's more of a vision than a specific plan for the immediate future. This would not work with blockchain anyway but IOTA would be compatible so why not think about such things.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

HusQy
All good my big one :P But actually not that much has changed. There has always been the concept of "economic clustering" which is basically based on similar ideas. We are just now able to implement things like this for the first time.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HusQy
Exactly. It would mean that addresses "cost" something but I would rather pay a few cents than fees for each transaction. And you can "take" this minimum amount with you every time you change to a new address.

HusQy
All good my big one :P But actually not that much has changed. There has always been the concept of "economic clustering" which is basically based on similar ideas. We are just now able to implement things like this for the first time.

Relax오늘 오전 1:17
Btw. Hans (sorry for interrupting this convo) but what make people say that IOTA is going the permissioned way because of your latest tweets? I don't get why some people are now forecasting that... Is it because of missing specs or do they just don't get the whole idea?

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:20
its bullshit u/Relaxan identity based system would still be open and permissionless where everybody can choose the actors that they deem trustworthy themselves but thats anyway just sth that would be applicable with more adoption
[오전 1:20]
for now we use mana as a predecessor to an actual reputation system

Sissors오늘 오전 1:31
If everybody has to choose actors they deem trustworthy, is it still permissionless? Probably will become a bit a semantic discussion, but still

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:34
Of course its permissionless you can follow your grandma if you want to :p

Sissors오늘 오전 1:36
Well sure you can, but you will need to follow something which has a majority of the voting power in the network. Nice that you follow your grandma, but if others dont, her opinion (or well her nodes opinion) is completely irrelevant

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:37
You would ideally follow the people that are trustworthy rather than your local drug dealers yeah

Sissors오늘 오전 1:38
And tbh, sure if you do it like that is easy. If you just make the users responsible for only connection to trustworthy nodes

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:38
And if your grandma follows her supermarket and some other people she deems trustworthy then thats fine as well
[오전 1:38]
+ you dont have just 1 actor that you follow

Sissors오늘 오전 1:38
No, you got a large list, since yo uwant to follow those which actually matter. So you jsut download a standard list from the internet

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:39
You can do that
[오전 1:39]
Is bitcoin permissionless? Should we both try to become miners?
[오전 1:41]
I mean miners that actually matter and not find a block every 10 trillion years 📷
[오전 1:42]
If you would want to become a validator then you would need to build up trust among other people - but anybody can still run a node and issue transactions unlike in hashgraph where you are not able to run your own nodes(수정됨)
[오전 1:48]
Proof of Stake is also not trustless - it just has a builtin mechanism that downloads the trusted people from the blockchain itself (the richest dudes)

Sissors오늘 오전 1:52
I think most agree it would be perfect if every person had one vote. Which is pr oblematic to implement of course. But I really wonder if the solution is to just let users decide who to trust. At the very least I expect a quite centralized network

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:53
of course even a trust based system would to a certain degree be centralized as not every person is equally trustworthy as for example a big cooperation
[오전 1:53]
but I think its gonna be less centralized than PoS or PoW
[오전 1:53]
but anyway its sth for "after coordicide"
[오전 1:54]
there are not enough trusted entities that are using DLT, yet to make such a system work reasonably well
[오전 1:54]
I think the reason why blockchain has not really started to look into these kind of concepts is because blockchain doesnt work with too many equally weighted validators
[오전 1:56]
I believe that DLT is only going to take over the world if it is actually "better" than existing systems and with better I mean cheaper, more secure and faster and PoS and PoW will have a very hard time to deliver that
[오전 1:56]
especially if you consider that its not only going to settle value transfers

Relax오늘 오전 1:57
I like this clear statements, it makes it really clear that DLT is still in its infancy

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:57
currently bank transfers are order of magnitude cheaper than BTC or ETH transactions

Hans Moog [IF]오늘 오전 1:57
and we you think that people will adopt it just because its crypto then I think we are mistaken
[오전 1:57]
The tech needs to actually solve a problem
[오전 1:57]
and tbh. currently people use PayPal and other companies to settle their payments
[오전 1:58]
having a group of the top 500 companies run such a service together is already much better(수정됨)
[오전 1:58]
especially if its fast and feeless
[오전 2:02]
and the more people use it, the more decentralized it actually becomes
[오전 2:02]
because you have more trustworthy entities to choose of

How EpiK Protocol “Saved the Miners” from Filecoin with the E2P Storage Model?

How EpiK Protocol “Saved the Miners” from Filecoin with the E2P Storage Model?

https://preview.redd.it/n5jzxozn27v51.png?width=2222&format=png&auto=webp&s=6cd6bd726582bbe2c595e1e467aeb3fc8aabe36f
On October 20, Eric Yao, Head of EpiK China, and Leo, Co-Founder & CTO of EpiK, visited Deep Chain Online Salon, and discussed “How EpiK saved the miners eliminated by Filecoin by launching E2P storage model”. ‘?” The following is a transcript of the sharing.
Sharing Session
Eric: Hello, everyone, I’m Eric, graduated from School of Information Science, Tsinghua University. My Master’s research was on data storage and big data computing, and I published a number of industry top conference papers.
Since 2013, I have invested in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Dogcoin, EOS and other well-known blockchain projects, and have been settling in the chain circle as an early technology-based investor and industry observer with 2 years of blockchain experience. I am also a blockchain community initiator and technology evangelist
Leo: Hi, I’m Leo, I’m the CTO of EpiK. Before I got involved in founding EpiK, I spent 3 to 4 years working on blockchain, public chain, wallets, browsers, decentralized exchanges, task distribution platforms, smart contracts, etc., and I’ve made some great products. EpiK is an answer to the question we’ve been asking for years about how blockchain should be landed, and we hope that EpiK is fortunate enough to be an answer for you as well.
Q & A
Deep Chain Finance:
First of all, let me ask Eric, on October 15, Filecoin’s main website launched, which aroused everyone’s attention, but at the same time, the calls for fork within Filecoin never stopped. The EpiK protocol is one of them. What I want to know is, what kind of project is EpiK Protocol? For what reason did you choose to fork in the first place? What are the differences between the forked project and Filecoin itself?
Eric:
First of all, let me answer the first question, what kind of project is EpiK Protocol.
With the Fourth Industrial Revolution already upon us, comprehensive intelligence is one of the core goals of this stage, and the key to comprehensive intelligence is how to make machines understand what humans know and learn new knowledge based on what they already know. And the knowledge graph scale is a key step towards full intelligence.
In order to solve the many challenges of building large-scale knowledge graphs, the EpiK Protocol was born. EpiK Protocol is a decentralized, hyper-scale knowledge graph that organizes and incentivizes knowledge through decentralized storage technology, decentralized autonomous organizations, and generalized economic models. Members of the global community will expand the horizons of artificial intelligence into a smarter future by organizing all areas of human knowledge into a knowledge map that will be shared and continuously updated for the eternal knowledge vault of humanity
And then, for what reason was the fork chosen in the first place?
EpiK’s project founders are all senior blockchain industry practitioners and have been closely following the industry development and application scenarios, among which decentralized storage is a very fresh application scenario.
However, in the development process of Filecoin, the team found that due to some design mechanisms and historical reasons, the team found that Filecoin had some deviations from the original intention of the project at that time, such as the overly harsh penalty mechanism triggered by the threat to weaken security, and the emergence of the computing power competition leading to the emergence of computing power monopoly by large miners, thus monopolizing the packaging rights, which can be brushed with computing power by uploading useless data themselves.
The emergence of these problems will cause the data environment on Filecoin to get worse and worse, which will lead to the lack of real value of the data in the chain, high data redundancy, and the difficulty of commercializing the project to land.
After paying attention to the above problems, the project owner proposes to introduce multi-party roles and a decentralized collaboration platform DAO to ensure the high value of the data on the chain through a reasonable economic model and incentive mechanism, and store the high-value data: knowledge graph on the blockchain through decentralized storage, so that the lack of value of the data on the chain and the monopoly of large miners’ computing power can be solved to a large extent.
Finally, what differences exist between the forked project and Filecoin itself?
On the basis of the above-mentioned issues, EpiK’s design is very different from Filecoin, first of all, EpiK is more focused in terms of business model, and it faces a different market and track from the cloud storage market where Filecoin is located because decentralized storage has no advantage over professional centralized cloud storage in terms of storage cost and user experience.
EpiK focuses on building a decentralized knowledge graph, which reduces data redundancy and safeguards the value of data in the distributed storage chain while preventing the knowledge graph from being tampered with by a few people, thus making the commercialization of the entire project reasonable and feasible.
From the perspective of ecological construction, EpiK treats miners more friendly and solves the pain point of Filecoin to a large extent, firstly, it changes the storage collateral and commitment collateral of Filecoin to one-time collateral.
Miners participating in EpiK Protocol are only required to pledge 1000 EPK per miner, and only once before mining, not in each sector.
What is the concept of 1000 EPKs, you only need to participate in pre-mining for about 50 days to get this portion of the tokens used for pledging. The EPK pre-mining campaign is currently underway, and it runs from early September to December, with a daily release of 50,000 ERC-20 standard EPKs, and the pre-mining nodes whose applications are approved will divide these tokens according to the mining ratio of the day, and these tokens can be exchanged 1:1 directly after they are launched on the main network. This move will continue to expand the number of miners eligible to participate in EPK mining.
Secondly, EpiK has a more lenient penalty mechanism, which is different from Filecoin’s official consensus, storage and contract penalties, because the protocol can only be uploaded by field experts, which is the “Expert to Person” mode. Every miner needs to be backed up, which means that if one or more miners are offline in the network, it will not have much impact on the network, and the miner who fails to upload the proof of time and space in time due to being offline will only be forfeited by the authorities for the effective computing power of this sector, not forfeiting the pledged coins.
If the miner can re-submit the proof of time and space within 28 days, he will regain the power.
Unlike Filecoin’s 32GB sectors, EpiK’s encapsulated sectors are smaller, only 8M each, which will solve Filecoin’s sector space wastage problem to a great extent, and all miners have the opportunity to complete the fast encapsulation, which is very friendly to miners with small computing power.
The data and quality constraints will also ensure that the effective computing power gap between large and small miners will not be closed.
Finally, unlike Filecoin’s P2P data uploading model, EpiK changes the data uploading and maintenance to E2P uploading, that is, field experts upload and ensure the quality and value of the data on the chain, and at the same time introduce the game relationship between data storage roles and data generation roles through a rational economic model to ensure the stability of the whole system and the continuous high-quality output of the data on the chain.
Deep Chain Finance:
Eric, on the eve of Filecoin’s mainline launch, issues such as Filecoin’s pre-collateral have aroused a lot of controversy among the miners. In your opinion, what kind of impact will Filecoin bring to itself and the whole distributed storage ecosystem after it launches? Do you think that the current confusing FIL prices are reasonable and what should be the normal price of FIL?
Eric:
Filecoin mainnet has launched and many potential problems have been exposed, such as the aforementioned high pre-security problem, the storage resource waste and computing power monopoly caused by unreasonable sector encapsulation, and the harsh penalty mechanism, etc. These problems are quite serious, and will greatly affect the development of Filecoin ecology.
These problems are relatively serious, and will greatly affect the development of Filecoin ecology, here are two examples to illustrate. For example, the problem of big miners computing power monopoly, now after the big miners have monopolized computing power, there will be a very delicate state — — the miners save a file data with ordinary users. There is no way to verify this matter in the chain, whether what he saved is uploaded by himself or someone else. And after the big miners have monopolized computing power, there will be a very delicate state — — the miners will save a file data with ordinary users, there is no way to verify this matter in the chain, whether what he saved is uploaded by himself or someone else. Because I can fake another identity to upload data for myself, but that leads to the fact that for any miner I go to choose which data to save. I have only one goal, and that is to brush my computing power and how fast I can brush my computing power.
There is no difference between saving other people’s data and saving my own data in the matter of computing power. When I save someone else’s data, I don’t know that data. Somewhere in the world, the bandwidth quality between me and him may not be good enough.
The best option is to store my own local data, which makes sense, and that results in no one being able to store data on the chain at all. They only store their own data, because it’s the most economical for them, and the network has essentially no storage utility, no one is providing storage for the masses of retail users.
The harsh penalty mechanism will also severely deplete the miner’s profits, because DDOS attacks are actually a very common attack technique for the attacker, and for a big miner, he can get a very high profit in a short period of time if he attacks other customers, and this thing is a profitable thing for all big miners.
Now as far as the status quo is concerned, the vast majority of miners are actually not very well maintained, so they are not very well protected against these low-DDOS attacks. So the penalty regime is grim for them.
The contradiction between the unreasonable system and the demand will inevitably lead to the evolution of the system in a more reasonable direction, so there will be many forked projects that are more reasonable in terms of mechanism, thus attracting Filecoin miners and a diversion of storage power.
Since each project is in the field of decentralized storage track, the demand for miners is similar or even compatible with each other, so miners will tend to fork the projects with better economic benefits and business scenarios, so as to filter out the projects with real value on the ground.
For the chaotic FIL price, because FIL is also a project that has gone through several years, carrying too many expectations, so it can only be said that the current situation has its own reasons for existence. As for the reasonable price of FIL there is no way to make a prediction because in the long run, it is necessary to consider the commercialization of the project to land and the value of the actual chain of data. In other words, we need to keep observing whether Filecoin will become a game of computing power or a real value carrier.
Deep Chain Finance:
Leo, we just mentioned that the pre-collateral issue of Filecoin caused the dissatisfaction of miners, and after Filecoin launches on the main website, the second round of space race test coins were directly turned into real coins, and the official selling of FIL hit the market phenomenon, so many miners said they were betrayed. What I want to know is, EpiK’s main motto is “save the miners eliminated by Filecoin”, how to deal with the various problems of Filecoin, and how will EpiK achieve “save”?
Leo:
Originally Filecoin’s tacit approval of the computing power makeup behavior was to declare that the official directly chose to abandon the small miners. And this test coin turned real coin also hurt the interests of the loyal big miners in one cut, we do not know why these low-level problems, we can only regret.
EpiK didn’t do it to fork Filecoin, but because EpiK to build a shared knowledge graph ecology, had to integrate decentralized storage in, so the most hardcore Filecoin’s PoRep and PoSt decentralized verification technology was chosen. In order to ensure the quality of knowledge graph data, EpiK only allows community-voted field experts to upload data, so EpiK naturally prevents miners from making up computing power, and there is no reason for the data that has no value to take up such an expensive decentralized storage resource.
With the inability to make up computing power, the difference between big miners and small miners is minimal when the amount of knowledge graph data is small.
We can’t say that we can save the big miners, but we are definitely the optimal choice for the small miners who are currently in the market to be eliminated by Filecoin.
Deep Chain Finance:
Let me ask Eric: According to EpiK protocol, EpiK adopts the E2P model, which allows only experts in the field who are voted to upload their data. This is very different from Filecoin’s P2P model, which allows individuals to upload data as they wish. In your opinion, what are the advantages of the E2P model? If only voted experts can upload data, does that mean that the EpiK protocol is not available to everyone?
Eric:
First, let me explain the advantages of the E2P model over the P2P model.
There are five roles in the DAO ecosystem: miner, coin holder, field expert, bounty hunter and gateway. These five roles allocate the EPKs generated every day when the main network is launched.
The miner owns 75% of the EPKs, the field expert owns 9% of the EPKs, and the voting user shares 1% of the EPKs.
The other 15% of the EPK will fluctuate based on the daily traffic to the network, and the 15% is partly a game between the miner and the field expert.
The first describes the relationship between the two roles.
The first group of field experts are selected by the Foundation, who cover different areas of knowledge (a wide range of knowledge here, including not only serious subjects, but also home, food, travel, etc.) This group of field experts can recommend the next group of field experts, and the recommended experts only need to get 100,000 EPK votes to become field experts.
The field expert’s role is to submit high-quality data to the miner, who is responsible for encapsulating this data into blocks.
Network activity is judged by the amount of EPKs pledged by the entire network for daily traffic (1 EPK = 10 MB/day), with a higher percentage indicating higher data demand, which requires the miner to increase bandwidth quality.
If the data demand decreases, this requires field experts to provide higher quality data. This is similar to a library with more visitors needing more seats, i.e., paying the miner to upgrade the bandwidth.
When there are fewer visitors, more money is needed to buy better quality books to attract visitors, i.e., money for bounty hunters and field experts to generate more quality knowledge graph data. The game between miners and field experts is the most important game in the ecosystem, unlike the game between the authorities and big miners in the Filecoin ecosystem.
The game relationship between data producers and data storers and a more rational economic model will inevitably lead to an E2P model that generates stored on-chain data of much higher quality than the P2P model, and the quality of bandwidth for data access will be better than the P2P model, resulting in greater business value and better landing scenarios.
I will then answer the question of whether this means that the EpiK protocol will not be universally accessible to all.
The E2P model only qualifies the quality of the data generated and stored, not the roles in the ecosystem; on the contrary, with the introduction of the DAO model, the variety of roles introduced in the EpiK ecosystem (which includes the roles of ordinary people) is not limited. (Bounty hunters who can be competent in their tasks) gives roles and possibilities for how everyone can participate in the system in a more logical way.
For example, a miner with computing power can provide storage, a person with a certain domain knowledge can apply to become an expert (this includes history, technology, travel, comics, food, etc.), and a person willing to mark and correct data can become a bounty hunter.
The presence of various efficient support tools from the project owner will lower the barriers to entry for various roles, thus allowing different people to do their part in the system and together contribute to the ongoing generation of a high-quality decentralized knowledge graph.
Deep Chain Finance:
Leo, some time ago, EpiK released a white paper and an economy whitepaper, explaining the EpiK concept from the perspective of technology and economy model respectively. What I would like to ask is, what are the shortcomings of the current distributed storage projects, and how will EpiK protocol be improved?
Leo:
Distributed storage can easily be misunderstood as those of Ali’s OceanDB, but in the field of blockchain, we should focus on decentralized storage first.
There is a big problem with the decentralized storage on the market now, which is “why not eat meat porridge”.
How to understand it? Decentralized storage is cheaper than centralized storage because of its technical principle, and if it is, the centralized storage is too rubbish for comparison.
What incentive does the average user have to spend more money on decentralized storage to store data?
Is it safer?
Existence miners can shut down at any time on decentralized storage by no means save a share of security in Ariadne and Amazon each.
More private?
There’s no difference between encrypted presence on decentralized storage and encrypted presence on Amazon.
Faster?
The 10,000 gigabytes of bandwidth in decentralized storage simply doesn’t compare to the fiber in a centralized server room. This is the root problem of the business model, no one is using it, no one is buying it, so what’s the big vision.
The goal of EpiK is to guide all community participants in the co-construction and sharing of field knowledge graph data, which is the best way for robots to understand human knowledge, and the more knowledge graph data there is, the more knowledge a robot has, the more intelligent it is exponentially, i.e., EpiK uses decentralized storage technology. The value of exponentially growing data is captured with linearly growing hardware costs, and that’s where the buy-in for EPK comes in.
Organized data is worth a lot more than organized hard drives, and there is a demand for EPK when robots have the need for intelligence.
Deep Chain Finance:
Let me ask Leo, how many forked projects does Filecoin have so far, roughly? Do you think there will be more or less waves of fork after the mainnet launches? Have the requirements of the miners at large changed when it comes to participation?
Leo:
We don’t have specific statistics, now that the main network launches, we feel that forking projects will increase, there are so many restricted miners in the market that they need to be organized efficiently.
However, we currently see that most forked projects are simply modifying the parameters of Filecoin’s economy model, which is undesirable, and this level of modification can’t change the status quo of miners making up computing power, and the change to the market is just to make some of the big miners feel more comfortable digging up, which won’t help to promote the decentralized storage ecology to land.
We need more reasonable landing scenarios so that idle mining resources can be turned into effective productivity, pitching a 100x coin instead of committing to one Fomo sentiment after another.
Deep Chain Finance:
How far along is the EpiK Protocol project, Eric? What other big moves are coming in the near future?
Eric:
The development of the EpiK Protocol is divided into 5 major phases.
(a) Phase I testing of the network “Obelisk”.
Phase II Main Network 1.0 “Rosetta”.
Phase III Main Network 2.0 “Hammurabi”.
(a) The Phase IV Enrichment Knowledge Mapping Toolkit.
The fifth stage is to enrich the knowledge graph application ecology.
Currently in the first phase of testing network “Obelisk”, anyone can sign up to participate in the test network pre-mining test to obtain ERC20 EPK tokens, after the mainnet exchange on a one-to-one basis.
We have recently launched ERC20 EPK on Uniswap, you can buy and sell it freely on Uniswap or download our EpiK mobile wallet.
In addition, we will soon launch the EpiK Bounty platform, and welcome all community members to do tasks together to build the EpiK community. At the same time, we are also pushing forward the centralized exchange for token listing.
Users’ Questions
User 1:
Some KOLs said, Filecoin consumed its value in the next few years, so it will plunge, what do you think?
Eric:
First of all, the judgment of the market is to correspond to the cycle, not optimistic about the FIL first judgment to do is not optimistic about the economic model of the project, or not optimistic about the distributed storage track.
First of all, we are very confident in the distributed storage track and will certainly face a process of growth and decline, so as to make a choice for a better project.
Since the existing group of miners and the computing power already produced is fixed, and since EpiK miners and FIL miners are compatible, anytime miners will also make a choice for more promising and economically viable projects.
Filecoin consumes the value of the next few years this time, so it will plunge.
Regarding the market issues, the plunge is not a prediction, in the industry or to keep learning iteration and value judgment. Because up and down market sentiment is one aspect, there will be more very important factors. For example, the big washout in March this year, so it can only be said that it will slow down the development of the FIL community. But prices are indeed unpredictable.
User2:
Actually, in the end, if there are no applications and no one really uploads data, the market value will drop, so what are the landing applications of EpiK?
Leo: The best and most direct application of EpiK’s knowledge graph is the question and answer system, which can be an intelligent legal advisor, an intelligent medical advisor, an intelligent chef, an intelligent tour guide, an intelligent game strategy, and so on.

IPFS— The New-gen Tech Revolution, or Another Illusion?

IPFS— The New-gen Tech Revolution, or Another Illusion?
Founded in 2014, after 6 years of R & D as well as its expansion, and after nearly a year of extensive testing and preparation, IPFS (Interplanetary File System) was officially launched on the afternoon of October 15, 2020, UTC time. 12 hours after the mainnet went online, Its token price fluctuated between 50~70 USD/FIL. However, panic and pessimism began to spread between the IPFS community and FIL token holders. Based on the total amount of FIL (2 billion) and the unit price of 50 US dollars estimation, its market value has exceeded 100 billion US dollars, second only to BTC. As such a mega valued IPFS/FIL went online, if there is no enough application to support, the selling pressure after the FIL is gradually unlocked will become huge. According to calculations, on the first day of the mainnet launch, there will be 239,000 FILs to be sold. Assuming that the unit price is 30 USD, the released circulation will be 8 million USD. Assuming the unit price remains unchanged, the market will usher in a similar value on the 10th day. With a release amount of 15 million USD, it is very likely that the corresponding token price can be supported.
IPFS is a network transmission protocol designed to create persistent and distributed storage and sharing of files. In terms of its current active projects and companies, IPFS has added more than 5 billion files, involving multiple industries, and there are also many blockchain companies using this technology. When the IPFS mainnet and its Filecoin goes online, the market value will be based on the applications brought by the IPFS network. After Bitcoin and Ethereum, Filecoin is an upstart in the blockchain industry with a revolutionary technological breakthrough. The market predicts that Filecoin’s market value will surpass Bitcoin. Now let us analyze this project together that was given high hopes:
IPFS major features and disadvantages
The basic application of IPFS, Filecoin’s financial attributes and its incentive mechanism make it a very exciting global collaborative open source project. On this basis, the data of all mankind is stored in the IPFS network, and no one can tamper with it.
This magnificent scene provides at least three values ​​for us:
  1. It creates a storage network service that is license-free and trust-free. This is very important. When you want to access a digital file, you don’t need to get approval or filing from any organization, and strict certification. As for non-centralized trust, it does not require user to trust the supplier that provides storage services, which significantly reduces the cost.
  2. The successful application of IPFS will most likely enable all idle storage resources in the world to be gathered to form a network and be effectively used, and such a network is unprecedented.
  3. Through such a model, network redundancy can be effectively reduced, and the complete separation of data can be achieved. There is no need to store files in a fixed location, only the content needs to be stored in an IPFS and Filecoin network.
However, Plentiful in ideal yet bony in reality. The design flaws of the IPFS project make it difficult to truly apply in the practical environment. Its design flaws mainly focus in the following aspects:
  1. Cannot support hot data storage.
Based on the principle of data timeliness, the higher the frequency of data access, the greater the value of the data possess. At present, IPFS only supports cold data storage scenarios. The lack of support for network transmission makes it impossible to establish a transmission network for hot data, which means the lack of the most valuable support for the network.
  1. The disaster tolerance mechanism is missing.
Disaster tolerance means that when an IT system stops working due to an accident (such as fire, earthquake, etc.), the entire application system can be switched to another location so that the system functions can continue to work normally. IPFS / Filecoin does not provide reliable disaster recovery and recovery mechanisms for storage users. Storage miners arecentrally handling disaster recovery backup and recovery works, resulting in an increase in storage space redundancy by 2–3 times.
  1. The storage performance is reduced by more than 60 times.
The IPFS data verification mechanism is too ideal and complex, and its storage performance is more than 60 times lower than that of a traditional centralized storage system. 1TB files usually need to be verified for more than 10 hours and cannot be stored normally and efficiently.
  1. Centralized technology architecture.
IPFS requires pretty advanced hardware, which leads to a very high threshold for joining its storage network. At present, only specialized storage devices can join the IPFS network as storage nodes. This means that IPFS initially advertised to users that connecting ordinary idle storage and reducing storage costs, has become a flubdub. It is difficult to store the entire network in a centralized structure in a disguised form, which cannot greatly reduce the storage cost of the entire network and ensure the security of the entire network.
  1. Due to the lack of the decentralized governance mechanism, its governance is too despotic, leading to a certain harm to the participated communities.
The above are the main obstacles currently hindering IPFS and Filecoin. The good news is that some of them can be improved and perfected, while some are design mechanism problems and cannot be fixed. Let’s take a look at another project initiated in the tech circle in 2017 — -HOP:
What is HOP
The HOP protocol provides a decentralized and completely anonymous traffic service for people all over the world based on block chain. HOP combines P2P network transmission and block chain technology to establish a block chain micro-payment protocol based on the block chain transmission encryption protocol between P2P network bandwidth contributors and bandwidth users, and merge it into traffic mining. In the mining pool side, the whole protocol is built on the main network, which has Micro Payment and mining functions. In addition, HOP also supports traffic mining of ERC20 in any currency. So far, HOP is the only protocol that combines the above functions and is officially available in commercial application. It can provide terminal nodes for secure access to decentralized networks.
HOP features and comparison with IPFS
HOP and IPFS have certain similarities. The following table is a comparison of the two projects in terms of technology and application characteristics:

https://preview.redd.it/d4klovzngmt51.png?width=1178&format=png&auto=webp&s=f14f0b2290430f6861f6da27f2d1e47ed196b741
Why HOP might be a phenomenal project in the future
Compared with the disadvantages of IPFS which are not supporting for hot data storage, low storage efficiency, low disaster tolerance and the high threshold of providing storage capacity, The advantages of HOP are summarized as follows:
  1. High operating efficiency.
The smart micro-payment system runs payments with unlimited TPS, and the efficiency is 90% higher than Ethereum.
  1. High level of open source. Supports all ERC-20 token access.
  2. Low threshold of participation.
Any participant who has a certain fundamental knowledge of computer science and network technology can set up mining pools and miners.
  1. High scalability.
It can be combined with Starlink satellites, repeaters, sim/esim cards and mobile phones in actual application scenarios to form a next-generation distributed interconnected communication network globally.
At present, most of the participants of HOP are top tier tech specialists, famous investors and politicians with global vision. We believe that projects like HOP, due to the open source and far-sighted technical foundation, which can not only achieve internal self-consistent circulation, but also integrate well with external ecology. Just as water conservancy is invisible, HOP has unlimited inclusiveness and scalability, and has a strong platform-level vitality!
We are looking forward to the accumulation of HOP, bringing a revolution in technology and applications to the blockchain and the practical universe!

CryptoClickers Released!

Hello guys! I am happy to say that today was an amazing release day with tons of supporting people! (Also thank you u/zenongreat for making a post about it :D)
It's been quite the stressful, but also educational and exciting journey from CryptoClickers: Legacy Edition (old version) release to remaking the game, then balancing the game, fixing tons of bugs, spending days on optimization (your CPU will be happy), and then the final release!
This game has been in development for a total of 3 years (1.5ish from each legacy and the new version). I have learned a ton and gained so much support from my amazing community and the amazing incremental_games community that all of us have formed.
Anyways let's talk about the game:
- Has a double prestige layer system (eventually three).
- Has tons of challenges/speedrun challenges.
- Two major upgrade trees.
- Lots of game modes that all bind together.
- Numbers up to the e10000s.
- Has hourly events that change everyday and runs on a weekly schedule.
- It's cross-platform, you can export and import your save on any device you may desire.
- Has a friendly Discord community
- Planning to add lots of content and improve the game along it's journey!

Here's whats going to happen in the future:
- Third Prestige (Will be a fully customizable UI such as colors, icons, prefixes, and names).
- Continuous UI updates, now I think we can all agree the UI is definitely not new user friendly. It's very clustered and messy for some people. I want to improve this in the best ways possible till it's near perfect.
- Events Updates, the current events are a bit stale, all except the Friday event will be replaced with some cool events I have planned!
- Bug fixes and balancing, please, if you find any small bug or grammar error, I would love to fix it. I want this game to be at its best state at all times!
- Possible seasonable events?
I wanted to thank everyone who has been here with me since the start of development, everyone who has contributed in any form of support, I appreciate you and everything you have done for me, the game, and the community. I appreciate all the beta testers for helping me get through the annoying bugs and balances that were made. I love all my staff, I love my community, and especially I love the Incremental Games community. I also wanted to mention that Antimatter Dimensions and Idling to rule the gods were my biggest inspirations for the game, so thanks to the devs for making their amazing games. Thank you guys and I hope you enjoy my game. I will be actively working on this!

Spoiler: If you are interested in a small story, otherwise you can ignore!
3 years ago, this game was only a little project of mine for an AP computer science Principles project portion of the AP test. I haven’t stopped working on it since then because I knew what I have been working on and what I have been learning over the years is worth it. Over a year or 2 ago I released what is now CryptoClickers Legacy. It was a mess, it was buggy, it drained everyone’s batteries like a Bitcoin Miner, heating up peoples phones, had a crappy launch on Android and was hard to maintain the crappy code it had. I then started the new CryptoClickers which I release today. A much more optimized, balanced, and overall developed game.
Edit: I am currently working on improving the UI and adding an interactive tutorial where you complete tasks up to the first challenge

SteelSeries Engine + TridentZ's RGB Lightning Controller = HIGH CPU USAGE

Hello,
I have an i5-9600K on an MSI Z390-A Pro and the sticks are 2x8=16GB of G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 (PC4-25600) 3200 Mhz (16-18-18-38).
For 2+ years everything was fine with G.Skill's Trident Z RGB lighting controller software and my rig. Now (all of the sudden) the process is eating ~25% of my CPU in taskbar (idle, gaming or w/e).
I've done a lot of research - but haven't found a solution. What I have found out so far it has something to do with SteelSeries Engine 3 (specifically the hardware drivers for the headset 'Arctis 7 2019 Edition'), I can not simultaneously have installed TridentZ lighting hid and SteelSeries Engine 3 (or the drivers for the headset), or the CPU eats that 25% that process.
As any user of Arctis 7 headset they know it has two outputs; 'Arctis 7 Game' and 'Arctis 7 Chat', while 'Game' output is the main channel and 'Chat' isn't meant for your audio output.
So if I have those two programs installed (SteelSeries Engine & TridentZ's RGB lighting controller) and select from audio mixer the 'Arctis 7 Game', no audio is heard at all from my system AND ALSO EVERYTHING ON MY SCREEN IS 0.1 frames per second (even if just moving cursor on desktop, nothing else), and as soon as I switch to 'Arctis 7 Chat', (which is worse than 'Game' (NORMALLY)) the lag is GONE.
If having those two programs installed (SteelSeries Engine & TridentZ's RGB lighting controller) and I task-kill the TridentZ's RGB lighting controller other processes (like 'Wallpaper Engine' & 'DisplayFusion') both go to 25% CPU usage - then if I kill those it's W10 processes like 'System', 'Windows Problem Reporting' or 'Windows Remote Procedure Call' process go into high CPU usage.
Before I knew the problem is with SteelSeries Engine (and/or its drivers for Arctis 7), iCUE, Wallpaper Engine or w/e, I have tried to use another GPU, the integrated GPU, installed clean W10 over ten times over, I bought the same exact MOBO as a replacement, tried every RAM slot with every possible combination with my two sticks, used 'Windows Memory Diagnostic tool' for three times, nothing. ...
...A lot of researching and being paranoid if I have a back door (for malware like BitCoin miner or smth) in any of my hard drives or in any cache/memory of any PC-component like CPU, GPU, the RAM sticks, the MOBO... - - - ,,, [!] Since the last three months I have been struggling with this. [!]

Ryzen 3100 Idling @ 75+ degrees & 100% usage - UNTIL I open task manager

Hey everyone,
EDIT: SOLVED. Much thanks to u/cecilkorik for giving me the push to try scanning for malware. I had mistakenly assumed I wouldn't be infected in a new build with very little else downloaded and installed. I really should have tried this first, but as it was a brand new build, I mistakenly assumed there was no way it had anything on it yet. Malwarebytes found a trojan bitcoin miner that was presumably mining BTC in my spare cycles and then hiding itself when task manager was opened.
After cleaning, the temps are now sub-45', CPU cores are happily sleeping, and all is well. Thanks for giving me the extra goading required to second guess myself. Not gonna make that mistake again.
ORIGINAL:
Hoping you can hope me troubleshoot a gremlin I can't seem to solve myself. Recently built a new PC with a Ryzen 3100 on an ASRock B450 Pro4 board. For some reason, the PC is pegged at 100% CPU utilization, as seen through Ryzen Master, and insane temps - UNTIL I open task manager to find out why. After I do, even if I close task manager, CPU usage and temps go down to normal. I understand Windows likes to fill spare CPU cycles, but I'm talking 76' C temps at 'idle'- it cooks the room. After opening task manager, CPU drops, cores start to sleep, and the temps drop down to the 40' range.
It has a fresh Windows install, updated drivers / chipset / BIOS, the whole nine. I'm fairly confident its not a thermal paste issue, as after I open task manager temps drop to a normal range. I just can't for the life of me figure out what is going on here.

High CPU Usage after System Restoring (Virus?)

So, for the first time in the 8+ years that I've owned my own computer, I am experiencing an odd performance of my computer in terms of CPU usage.
I'm a gamer and a music producer, so my CPU is used often. However, it seems to sit at 100% idle, or when programs like Chrome and AVG Antivirus are open.
While I have yet to diagnose the source of the issue, all I know is that it was not like this yesterday; for I have diagnostics and monitoring on all my PC components 24/7. So after realizing this issue, I system restored to two days in the past, on 7/20/20. That did not work. I proceeded to install and use several antivirus programs one after another in order to combat or diagnose the issue. I uninstalled the programs that caused high CPU usage as well, but only for it to increase while idle. Just by looking, I can tell that it's as if my normal CPU usage has been multiplied as if there is a background program multiplying said CPU usage. I'm aware that malware and things like hidden bitcoin miners can cause this, but my antivirus programs have yet to pick it up if present.
So here I am thinking if I've got some sort of virus that lingers on my PC despite a system restore into the past... or is my CPU finally ready to be replaced? I hope this is not the case because it's a good CPU and I'm not in a comfortable financial spot to upgrade my PC either. I'm looking for any help and am pretty much desperate to get this fixed. Let me know if you need anything in order for you to properly help.
Specs:
i7 5700k, 64GB DDR4 Ram, GTX 1060 3GB, 1TB SSD w/ 3TB total extra storage running Windows 10 Pro
EDIT: It seems to have gone down, my CPU idles at around 20% but seems to spike with something called Software Reporter Tool within Google Chrome and any antivirus I open. I have not tried out other programs, but am very scared if it is a virus. Hopefully, someone will diagnose.

Want to Change the World Today?

Buy some HEX and share this post all over the place, DO NOT let the banker in the photo win today and smoke your money to the point where you are brainwashed that dilution is the ONLY solution through reserve lending practices and printing money to cover the difference as needed. Take your money pay your bills, set some aside to cover unexpected things, and burn the rest into a smart contract, DO NOT let the banks reserve lend any cash you make and dilute the rest worlds potential with it.

Ever wonder why decent salaries is hard to attain?
Ever wonder why everything is just a bit too expensive and just out of reach?
Ever wonder why governments cannot seem to solve the simplest problems and run of of cash and keep taxing us more and more?
Ever wonder why it is just hard to live with any peace of mind?
Ever wonder why it is just hard to live, period?
Ever wonder why housing prices are out of control?
Ever wonder why things are never improving?
Ever wonder why a company like TerraPower who has discovered a nuclear reactor design that is hurricane, earthquake, tsunami, terrorist, and most importantly human error proof cannot get one built? 10000x more safe than conventional plants, and much less waste, because they put 2020 engineering into something that others used 1960s technologies with? Yet still cannot get one built? It doesn't even need fuel, feed it the radioactive garbage all that those 1960 reactors shat out and it can output the entire power needs the entire US for 2+ years. Obviously, not one reactor, but INPUT that tonnage of waste will equal power OUTPUT for 2+ years for the entire US.
There is a constant squeeze on our potential, our potential is imprisoned, our future is marked for execution by own stupidity and collective ignorance. Ask yourself how many people does it take to screw in a light bulb?
"So often times it happens that we live our lives in chainsAnd we never even know we have the key"
YES!!!!!!! We have the key!!!!!!!!! THE EAGLES were right, we have the fucking KEY.... to our HEX crypto wallet!!!! What a revelation!!!!!!! Why HEX? Simply just because it has a TROLL mechanism built in. Oh so you have my keys now try and go end stake! LUL!
Don't be so chicken sh*(, every dollar I sent to crypto world since Spring 2017 is still there, it has not come back into the banking system. So where are your balls?
My first attempt at Bitcoin was done when it was just pennies, no one was around helping out, how to hold it, how to safe keep it, why does my address change, what does it mean, how to I do a wallet back-up, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, advise from miners just complicated things, no one spoke English, "yes I can have a computer science degree too if I wanted to but I do not want it, you monkey..." I gave up after burning a whole weekend on it. In Spring 2017 when Bitcoin was the price of gold, I put $10 into an ATM and lost it all to fees, miners + ATM! Out of spite in all this I finally burned a weekend and learned how to acquire and secure Bitcoin and other cyrptos, I never knew where out there. My ride has been crazy, I had accounts at Cryptopia, QuadrigaCX, and even crooks at Coinsquare held my coins, luckily, I managed to avoid disaster, all the units I ever exchanged are still around in my wallets.
So, what is the fear? Price watching? Care about rankings? Money idle in a bank? Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish. Put 10k in a bank today, 9k of that goes to loan who pays for house reno down payment, house reno company puts money in a bank becomes 8.1k loan for car down payment, car company puts in bank becomes 7.29K loan for some other XYZ for ABC's bank who loans it to... I ran out of variables... and so on and so on and so on. Tomorrow take back 5k from the 10k, where does the money going to come from? Long gone! Oh the bank will just PRINT some more. Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish, Squish.
Like I said my money has never come back into the banking system, and probably never will, at least I do my part and send the hard PASS in participating in the squishing of our potential and the marking of our future for execution.
How many people monkeys does it take to screw in a light bulb? As of 2020, apparently not enough, for now.
