Decentralizing-of-things
show user profile  digs
Anyone here dabble in crypto-currency or the soon to be "decentralizing-of-things"?

There are some really interesting projects being worked on, like sia, which uses a decentralized blockchain to store files on the uber cheap -





website


another project I find interesting is Golem - the only thing I dislike about this one though is how they use rendering as an example of something that would benefit from decentralized computing, which I disagree with - I can't really see cpu's from across the globe on everyone individual computers being able to render an image appropriately, especially using something like max, but w/e, it's a really awesome idea :)


Golem's site


This one, Steemit, is like Reddit, but you can earn money and use a blockchain without ever knowing its happening... When I first started using Steemit, 'Steem" coins were only worth about 20 cents... now one coin is around 2$ per and the user base is growing pretty quickly


Steemit


Just wondering if anyone has any knowledge to share, or any interesting projects/currencies being watched?

Yo! Yeah, I'm really into Crypto. Got quite lot invested in there atm in different projects. Golem is a good one, I also saw that SONM had their ICO which is another super computer project, raised $42m!

I'm in quite a few atm including: Ark, Shift, Wings, MobileGo, Wagerr, Particl, Aragon, Patientory, Lbry...

What started out as a bit of fun on the side for me has turned into serious money and potentially something I could just do full time!

Coxy what do you think of EOS?

I'm still trying to figure out what makes a currency valuable... sometimes I just don't get it - for example, there's a currency called "Useless Ethereum Token" and it's worth nearly 10 usd per token lol...

I was only introduced to Bitcoin a few months ago, as far as actually buying and trading, etc. Here's a list of cryptocurrency if anyone is interested:http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/views/all/

As far as the basics go, I'm not sure about all the currencies that you can actually buy stuff with. Bitcoin is becoming more and more popular, for example you can buy a Tesla with it. Elon might also accept Ethereum, but I haven't looked into it.

TenX is new and is essentially a debit card you populate with Bitcoin and Ethereum, and can be used to buy anything I think - on their website they show the creator or w/e buying Starbucks with the TenX card - website

I'm just in it for trading right now, ie buy low sell high... I spent 40 bucks on like 300k mooncoin when it first came out lol, maybe in 10 years a mooncoin will be worth a dollar! :P

Question about bitcoin mining. I don't suppose it's worth it to keep my uber workstation running on the off hours to mine? I always figured it would cost more in electricity than it would the actual bitcoins that I might get.. Also I have barley any clue what a bitcoin is... I just want to pay for a tesla with them. :D

I missed the boat on bitcoin, I was offered coins in 2010/2011 for about 5 bucks and passed on it.

As far as mining on a single computer, it's pointless unless you have a gpu farm, the block will only give you a very small percent of a coin, you'll use more electricity cost than your coin cost.
