@alansilbert I appreciate the naysayers. I’ll appreciate their public posts more in the far future as I reminisce about the good ol’ days.

@mikeinspace That’s the million BTC question; @21dotco has determined that it’s better to mine. I can’t say myself w/o hard numbers.

@mikeinspace Well, you don’t know how long a given device will be running; it may be simpler to have it generate satoshis as needed.

@mikeinspace That will be up to the device manufacturers to build IoT-style functionality that is useful to the end user.

3) The point of embedded mining is not to earn a profit for the owner of a device, but to generate enough satoshis for the device to use.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

2) First of all, let’s be clear that embedded BTC mining is not a for-profit operation like you see with large scale mining facilities.

1) There appears to be a great deal of confusion about @21dotco’s vision with regard to embedded BTC mining. Here’s my take:
