@mark_a_howard @HoboJerky Trying to argue about energy efficiency w/o a frame of reference seems… a waste of our energy. ;-)

@mark_a_howard @HoboJerky TBQH I’m not interested in energy discussions until someone determines energy usage of current banking system.

@myhonor16 Now we just need to reverse engineer the electromagnetism at play so that we can create a ray-gun that makes people buy BTC. ;-)

6/ I expect we will continue to see “IPOs” that attract investors with too many bitcoins & not enough sense. A fool and his money…

@matthew_d_green @socrates1024 @engadget I’m quite eager to see Zerocash’s approach to mining ;-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

@matthew_d_green @socrates1024 @engadget Indeed; apparently securing a system as revolutionary as Bitcoin isn’t good enough for some people.

@socrates1024 @matthew_d_green @engadget Anyone who describes Bitcoin mining as “useless math” obviously does not understand Proof of Work.

pmarca 1/Technology innovation disproportionately helps the poor more than it helps the rich, as the poor spend more of their income on products.
