@mauroperetti Maybe, but perhaps they’re extrapolating that if their chips become pervasive, they’ll dwarf all other miners.

@el33th4xor @mauroperetti True; probably a part of the tech stack they developed. Sure would be nice if they implement a decentralized pool.

@el33th4xor @mauroperetti You mean configuring the device to use a mining pool?

@mikeinspace @mauroperetti … unless BTC exchange rate increased exponentially :-P

@mikeinspace @mauroperetti Sure, though that translates to linearly increasing power rather than exponentially increasing.

@mikeinspace @mauroperetti There have been several generations of hardware, though it may be plateauing now, reaching fabrication limits.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mikeinspace

@mikeinspace @mauroperetti Yeah, that will get interesting based upon A) the life expectancy of the device and B) future hashrate growth.

@mikeinspace @mauroperetti Just speculating; we don’t know numbers yet. But there’s also the benefit of decentralizing mining.

3) @mauroperetti With embedded mining the device will always have ‘fuel’ so long as the Bitcoin network is still functional.

2) @mauroperetti You COULD have the device ‘call home’ to the manufacturer to request satoshis, but that’s a single point of failure.

1) @mauroperetti When you sell a device you don’t know how long it will run, if at all. Preloading device w/ satoshis might be a waste.

.@mauroperetti I’ve been thinking more about @21dotco’s claim of embedding mining convenience:

@Bitcoin_Regs Are you in the Triangle area? If so, I hope we can meet up some time.

@OfficialNuBits “Value stability” is relative. Every value is volatile, just to different degrees. For example: foxnews.com/world/2015/05/…

Critics can find numerous reasons to claim it’s fatally flawed, but they can’t diminish the utility & value people already find in Bitcoin.

@el33th4xor Surely the new $1,000,000 superforum will have security the likes of which the world has never seen!
