The #EthereumMerge made everyone an expert on the subject of the different consensus mechanisms.👑

But the discussion revolves more around proof of work (#PoS) and proof of stake (#PoW).🚀

Shining light on others like proof of burn (#PoB) and proof of activity (#PoA):⚡
A consensus mechanism is the set of rules under which the #blockchain operates.✨

These rules dictate who gets to mine new crypto and the conditions for it.💎

1. Proof of activity (#PoA):💸

Proof of activity is the hybrid of #PoW and #PoS.💰

This consensus mechanism is used by @EspersCoin and @decredproject.

In #PoA, the first step is mining the blockchain in a traditional PoW way.👇

2)US #Nuclear utilities send #Russia hundreds of $Millions per year under a "Russian Suspension Agreement" US government extended in 2020 that allows utilities to purchase & import 20% of their enriched #Uranium reactor fuel from Russia (about 10M lbs/yr #U3O8 equivalent)😯../3👇
3)US government wants to stop US #Nuclear industry from funding #Russia's war on #Ukraine but haven't yet banned the import of Russian #uranium because it would halt deliveries of 20% of US reactor fuel already in signed contracts, with alternative sources in short supply. ../4👇

The Dekeyser's Nectar Bat (Lonchophylla dekeyseri) is an endangered and endemic cave bat species from the Neotropical savannas (Cerrado). Follow the line to know more about its conservation status... #Cerrado #conservation #bat #Chiroptera #cave #savanna #mining #deforestation
Even though Cerrado is less than half the size of the Amazon forest, it is a biodiversity hotspot that faces higher or equivalent deforestation rates than the Amazon due to the conversion of the vegetation mostly into pastures and soy bean plantations.
Most of the vegetation conversion to agriculture was only possible due to a technique called "calagem" developed in the 70's to increase the acidic low pH of Cerrado soil. However, part of the limestone used to correct Cerrado soil pH come from limestone exploitation from caves

What is Proof of Stake (PoS) ?

Our last 🧵 looked at the original Nakamoto #consensus method that uses #ProofofWork - a trusted & robust method - but very time & energy consuming.

Enter #ProofofStake
1/ With #ProofofStake validators don’t race to solve #cryptographic puzzles (also known as #mining and the main reason #ProofofWork is so energy intensive).

Instead validators #stake their own #crypto assets in order to participate in consensus.
2/ This uses much less energy and is faster - which is important for the #environment and for #applications that require speed and scalability.

What is Proof of Work (PoW)?

Our last thread introduced the topic of #consensus mechanisms which determine how #data is added to the #blockchain

In this 🧵 we look at consensus mechanisms that use Proof of Work:
1/ A group of owls is called a Parliament.

And just as there are different ways to participate in a democracy (eg voting in a referendum vs electing a representative to decide on your behalf) - there are also different ways of participating in decision making on a #blockchain
2/ The first #blockchain developed for #bitcoin by Satoshi Nakamoto uses Nakamoto #consensus

#Ethereum to the moon or magma? The #EthereumMerge explained

The Merge is joining #ETH's new Beacon Chain proof-of-stake consensus layer with its current execution layer, the Mainnet we use.
Instead of employing energy-intensive mining, it uses staked #ETH to secure the network.
This is an exciting step toward reaching greater scalability, security, and sustainability, which are Ethereum's central vision.
The proof-of-work has secured the Ethereum #blockchain since the genesis block in July 2015.
Ethereum launched with a proof-of-work(#PoW) consensus algorithm in 2015; Throughout Ethereum's history, developers have been hard at work preparing for an eventual transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. Finally, On December 1, 2020, the Beacon Chain was created.

1/x What makes quality #mining deposit❓

Summary of Mines vs Mineralisation research paper.

Four key elements that need to work together:
1. Social Licence
2. Geological Factors
3. Financial engineering
4. Operating factors

Geology underpins linkages between the elements.
2/x For mineral deposit to be economic it must able to meet challenges related to high energy costs or even social license to operate.

i.e. Significant size and grade in a stable geographic location are important.
3/x As an investor it is really important to define what such project looks like in terms of dimensions, grade, depth, location etc.

It will help you to pick right companies to invest!

This is also critical for management teams and geos...define what you are looking for 🙏

As an Irish citizen of a Constitutional Republic - I am yet again appalled this morning by what I witnessed this Government do to the #Oireachtas in the making of #legislation - facilitated today by @smytho a Minister of State in #DECC from @greenparty_ie - details below👇
On 14 June in 2nd stage debate on a bill on #CircularEconomy & #Mining the Minister flagged in less than 6 lines of words - a major scope change to the bill for "essential amendments on Committee Stage in this House to address some urgent matters concerning energy capacity" BUT👇
17 days later the Government:
😡Had not briefed even informally the JOC HLGH responsible for Planning or the JOC Env & Climate Action responsible for the EPA on the changes
😡Had not ensured a copy of the amendments was on the Oireachtas website for today's debate on them

On June 3, the #SupremeCourt directed that every protected forest, national park and wildlife sanctuary in the country should have a minimum 1 km eco-sensitive zone (ESZ), from their demarcated boundaries. 1/6

#FRA2006 #ecosensitivezone

thenewsminute.com/article/sc-ord…
A few environmentalists have welcomed the order, others found it unscientific. There were also huge protests against the verdict by farmers organisations in Kerala. The eco-sensitive zones are declared to create a “shock absorber” for the protected areas. 2n
Apart from prohibiting commercial #mining, establishment of major hydroelectric projects, activities related to tourism; there are restrictions on many activities like tree felling, establishing hotels, movements of vehicles at night, ground water harvesting and so on. 3n

A thread on if #BTC #mining is for you. I mine through @compass_mining and can provide real world averages on TH/s numbers with downtimes, electricity outages, pool fees, maintenance, etc.
With my machines, I use @f2pool_official and average .00000483 #bitcoin per each TH/s per day. So a 96 TH/s machine averages .00046363 BTC per machine per day. A 100 TH/s machine averages .000483 BTC per machine per day.
If you started mining on August 1, 2022 with a 110 Th/s machine (taking into account an estimated May 4, 2024 halving), it would take 3123 days to mine 1 bitcoin. 8.77 years. 105.24 months.

*my model does NOT take into account future increases in network difficulty.
