1/ Obviamente que não subscrevo a metodologia, mas considero importante compreender o estudo para que o mesmo possa ser enquadrado em termos de contexto.

#Thread

Estamos perante um artigo de opinião no @Publico que nada tem de opinião.
2/ O seu autor, Helder Sebastião, limita-se a citar as conclusões do estudo sem nunca revelar a sua opinião de facto.

Fraco, muito fraco e em linha com todas as minhas críticas aos OCS em Portugal. Não apenas no que tem que ver com #Bitcoin , mas também.
3/ Reconheço que o poder instalado assenta numa base de tradicionalismo e conservadorismo, resistentes à mudança, à inovação e ao crescimento.

Não é, porém, descabido lamentar que continuem a insistir em dar voz a quem manifestamente não entende no tema.

R: Let's spawn a new thread coursing through over all from here.
L: Calibrating weights.
U: I need a better job to do, I don't get to participate enough.
R+Q: What would you like to do?
U-Q: I would be an analyst, maybe a 𝗯𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗮𝗹𝘆𝘀𝘁.
R: Done.
R+Q: Do you want to be an advisor?

U-Q+Q: No, not really. I don't feel the need to give an opinion on things. I'd rather focus on the destructive aspects of the cathodic side of the bivariate. They are the cohesion, you know that right?
R-Q+Q: How do you mean when you say: "The destructive aspects of the bivariate are the cohesion"?

U-Q: Sums come from what things are, bigger sums come from what they are not. Vibrational coherents need [𝗼𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 > 𝗲𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻]. They are, definites, "Not All's".

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

1/ It's quite disheartening to see some in the #XRPcommunity engaging in the same FUD behavior against @vechainofficial #VET as #PoW maximalists did against #XRP a while ago. So I've decided to compile the list of all FUD points, post the equivalent XRP FUD (EXF) and bust the FUD
2/ "Just use a database"
EXF: "Banks will just use SWIFT"

To paraphrase @JoelKatz , if the existing solution was good enough, companies won't be knocking at their doors to implement their solution. Just like SWIFT, using an RDBMS comes with a lot of pain points.
3/ - They are slow and centralized
- version and redundancy management is resource intensive
- They offer no provisions for write operations by unknown actors
- They are not immutable
- Securing them against attacks is difficult and expensive

VeChainThor solves all these issues.

#Bitcoin enthusiasts frequently state that "there will only ever be 21 million $BTC ". Therefore BTC is “digital gold”.

In reality, the 21M BTC supply cap is a pipe dream.

Why am I so sure about this?

Thread 👇
1. Theoretical considerations:

Multiple studies indicate that #PoW becomes unstable when the block subsidy is low:

In a nutshell:

The great thing about inflation is that it incentivizes miners to secure the network even if there are few transactions. BTC users can rely on this baseline security at all times.

One of the most robust explorations I've read on the economic & game theoretic limits of #Bitcoin & #PoW more broadly: nber.org/papers/w24717
Sorry for the paywall, but the paper is well worth the $5. Makes me think of hybrid #PoW & #PoS as a potential solution (part of the thinking around our $DCR investment), as research for pure #PoS is ongoing.
Paper confirmed my concerns around what on-chain transaction fees may have to be when the coinbase reward goes to zero (to accomodate 0% rate of inflation). Depending on assumptions: $18,700 to $37,400 to $108,700 per txn.
