@MattBochneak @juscamarena @pmarca Full node = trustless, embedded chip = decentralizes Bitcoin mining + permissionless innovation.

@jimmyhomma @lisacheng @JeramieT Yeah, I think machine to machine payments have a lot of potential, adding value to the Internet of Things.

@MattBochneak @juscamarena @pmarca @amazon it’s not meant to generate coins humans use to purchase retail items. It’s a platform for devs.

@lisacheng @JeramieT @jimmyhomma @amazon If you think that this is a for profit mining machine, you’ve missed the point.

@ziggamon It’s a great idea as a platform. It won’t succeed unless the platform is powerful and easy to use.

@robustus @kristovatlas My hope is that socialization of mining via embedded chips results in the death of centralized for-profit mining.

@kristovatlas @balajis has stated that they determined the cost of obtaining / preloading is higher than mining; could use more details!

@kristovatlas @robustus Imagine how nice it would be if the value provided by devices such as this is sufficient to decentralize mining…

@ziggamon I think that the micropayments server / any other software they provide will be crucial to give the device value.

@kristovatlas It’s hard for me to put a value on it considering that it’s not a for-profit miner. Value will depend upon dev creativity.

Only time will tell if it’s genius or ridiculous, but in light of continued community skepticism to @21dotco: pic.twitter.com/D4yR7FnWum

LaurentMT @lopp @kristovatlas For me, the most intriguing/interesting part is this idea that full nodes may be financially incentivized…

@kristovatlas I’d say it will hinge upon how easy it is to use the micropayments server.

@speedweasel @ivovic @asymco It’s been OK, but we need to make it more decentralized. I’m hopeful that mesh networking will succeed.

@Kevin_Ashton @asymco I spent some time Googling around but without much success; authors are reputable but I’d like to know specifics.

via Twitter for Android in reply to Kevin_Ashton

@ivovic @asymco The Internet is decentralized, just not as much as it could be. A mesh network would be preferable…

via Twitter for Android in reply to ivovic

@ivovic @asymco Sure, it’s easy for govt to take action against central physical infrastructure. Decentralized infrastructure not so much.
