  1. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    You are right that the Scams will go on. May be they will find other things for scamming - NFT and Metaverse Real Estates was latest on their scam toolbox. I read somewhere when Crypto market was valued at 3 Trillion, money invested from people was something like 1 Trillion. Now we are at or less than 1 trillion value, meaning market value is close to money invested. Doesnt mean it has to be worth 1 trillion when one pays 1 trillion for some s***, no matter who pupped.   I have heard the name of "one Sail****" in this forum, and has seen some u2b vdos. He sounds like a Religion preacher on steroid/hash***. How come intelligent people listen to this type of people ?
  2. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    How Sam Bankman-Fried's FTX-Alameda crypto empire vanished overnight (cnbc.com) The recent FTX bankrupcy. Looks like many in the Crypto space has been playing lots of "Wild Wild West" stuff without much scrutiny, and much was based on the hope that prices will only go up infinitely. What's your take? 
  3. Leoparden und Marder for Ukraine

    "Sending more heavy weapons will shorten the war" is a very populistic, binary (black/white) view. How do you know for sure that more weapons will shorten the war? And what if it doesnt ? Who does it really help if it doesnt shorten rather make the war longer? That's the problem I see with almost 98% of Germany media and biggest part of major political parties since Feb,24 - they have all taken the same side/decision about what to do. Isn't it great that in our perfect democracies, no matter how different general people think, at the end policy makers all come to the same decision? Not saying I have a solution, it has become too complecated. Not oppossing Russia isn't an option either. I think "Das Kind ist in den Brunnen gefallen", and Germany would be one of the country getting hurt most at the end (Other than Ukraine and Russia ofcourse) . The experts on the other side of Atlantic are probably very happy, the stupid Europeans are at war again !! 
  4. Electric vehicles in Germany - all the ins-and-outs!

    Reason is the "Merit Order" principle. Merit order - Wikipedia For a normal people like me, I would say its simply the way any market works. As an example, cost of Oil production for the Saudis is like 10-12 USD, for USA Shell Fracking industry its 50+. But when there is a market for 90 USD, the Saudis wont sell it for 30. Same with German electricity market. There are times of days/weeks when costly Gas powered electricity comes to market and they must be bought to keep grid stable - so Solar and Wind guys gets 500% profit at those times. Happens too often after we have booted AKW and many Coals. Stupid Energy Wende has made electricity too expensive. It worked somehow as long as gas price was low , not anymore.
  5. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    "Cryptocurrency Ether reduces power consumption by 99.95 percent" Ether: Update "The Merge" vollzogen, Angriff auf Bitcoin - manager magazin (manager-magazin.de) I always had meinung that Blockchain has values, but very sceptical on "snake oil" sales guys who were selling all kinds of luftschlosser to naiv Robinhood investors. I still remember famous "Bitcoin philosopher" Robert Breedlove  who was speaking lots of s****y things like Bitcoin will be  $307k by Oct,21, then $12.5 million by 2031  When we see Bitcoin uses middle sized country's energy, at least Eth is  going in the right direction ( PoS). In times of high energy prices, this is a smart move,What do our BTC experts think, any chances BTC reduces energy consumption by >90% any time soon?   
  6. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    You dont have to feel personally "beleidigt", whenever someone writes something critical about cryptos and bitcoin - you arent one of the founders  who needs to treat it like own child. I have read plenty about too much coal being used in China for BTC mining, one doesn't need to be "hater" to criticize something "nicht in Ordnung". I hope you do admit the kind of fakes/manipulations in crypto space, with current 19000 Cryptos. Anyway, whats you take on Bored Apes ? I saw some being sold for 200K, 300K (yes, that's 200000$)

    Doesnt mathch up what you said (this article is from Sep,21) ... " Of the 86 TWh estimated to be used in bitcoin mining, 63 percent came from coal power, mostly in Chinese provinces like Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia. " China's crypto ban could free up more energy than Finland uses in a year — Quartz (qz.com)  
  9. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    A screenshot of worldwide central bank money printing. End of free money is here, as inflation is raging. And it will end crypto boom, charts are looking ugly. I know it wont change many of  Bitcoin faithfuls, but I hope this crypto winter brings end to many completely over-inflated stupid crypto hypes like Bored Ape and such        
  10. Buying power, inflation and others

    I remember a friend of mine got a job as SW Developer in München in 2001,and was getting ca. 90-95K DM. It was after the dot.com bust. Another one I know got a job in München last year (after a German Semi went belly-up),at 46K EUR. Both had similar background/experiences...market were similarly tight in both cases. I personally think 90k DM had much more buying power than 46k Eur...even if they were equal,average starting salaries haven't hiked much last 10 years (at least in Germany),rather have tanked a little. Many companies now try to stay out of tarif scales, meaning less pay. At the same time, the 20 DM Schönes Wochenende ticket became 37 Eur... bahn prices get 3-5% higher every year...As does many other prices like gas,house-rent,electricity etc etc. The only thing that stayed stable is the prices at Super markets...thanks to Herr. Aldi:) What's your take? Did we (living in Germany) get richer or poorer last 10 years?
