In a sense bitcoin is regulated by it's design in a way only a computer system can be.
To start a sentence with "In a sense" is to admit defeat beforehand.
The carbon footprint of regular banks is much bigger, they have massive buildings, IT systems to process transactions, etc...
Sounds good. Wrong though. Banks have large systems because their transaction count dwarfs BitCoin's. They rely on one very expensive computer setup because it's **designed** for the job, unlike some gameboi's home PvP system. Think Tandem, high throughput specifically for transactional processing. All in all, they do much more for less if you understand the entire picture.
Their massive buildings are for the human side of the issue and are dwarfed by the number of homes the distributed system resides in.
With finite currencies like the gold standard
Asteroid mining is being addressed as we write. Odds are great that we'll have no dearth of minerals in the foreseeable future.
Oh, please. They're just people like everyone else. They just write, and you don't get everyone else's ruminations.
If your statements represents real truth, then you need to listen to what I say as I have fourteen books out now. But I'll guarantee a lot of folks here have disagreed with me adamantly.
Have you got one where it's Paul, Ringo, and dogs filling in for John and George? If it's halfway decent, they could get the band back together.
What morons - the tweeters, that is. On Github, starring a project means that you want to keep track of it, not that you endorse it. Out of over 100 starrers, at least some of them surely followed it so that they could watch the conversation unfold or even track active participants.
Refusing to hire someone because they're listening to a conversation makes you a world-class moron. Ironically, it may be that they're listening because they have the exact same opinions on it that you do.
