Tesla K80 Ethereum Hashrate CryptoCoins Info Club

I have access to a cluster with a few pretty fast GPU's (Tesla S1070). Should I get into bitcoin mining?

The cluster is shared, but I have a preferred subscription, meaning I get some sort of preference in the queue. Would it be worth my time to hog the GPU nodes and mine bitcoins? Here's the wiki page for the GPU.
I have light programming knowledge (mostly research based though). If anyone thinks it'd be worth setting up, I'd be willing to pay you to help me out.

I want to optimize your program on a ppc64el-supercomputer with lots of Tesla V100-SXM2 GPUs for free

I've been working on a program to automatically adjust hyperparameters in a given range. That is things like number of neurons, number of layers etc. For this, I want to do this on real programs with real data that is actually useful. I've tried things like DeepSpeech, but I have immense problems getting it to work on a ppc64el-environment with some compiled dependencies. This will then be made into a paper.
So, I'd like to offer the following. If you have an application you'd like to be trained on a high performance computing cluster with hundreds of Tesla V100-SXM2 GPUS, for free!, than you can write me your suggestions here.
The following requirements must be met though:
- It has to be able to run on ppc64el Linux natively (i.e. you compiled it for it or it's only python and bash)
- It has to be free software (and legal, of course)
- No bitcoin mining or things like that
- Has to be a real world application with lots of data that is either freely accessible or you can give me a download link for
- The program needs to accept the parameters via a cli (i.e. "program.py --layers=10")
- There has to be a loss function that can be minimized (e.g. the number of errors made, or quadratic loss or whatever, only thing that matters is one number and lower meaning better)
- The result needs to be publically available, too.
I have as much parallel computing time as we need and can automatically try as many combination as we want until we have a good result. RAM is not an issue, I have about 440GB RAM on a node, and more than 30 nodes with 6 Teslas each.
I'd really be interested in good suggestions, from which I will chose one or maybe two. You'll also get fancy graphs of the GPU workload over time, and of the hyperparameter sets tried out. Anyone interested?

My stock study watchlist. would appreciate criticisms or red flags

Core
- FB ecosystem
This is the stock that i believe is invested in the right places and has a path forward in the global market. I work as a React developer in fintech and I greatly enjoy their technology. The reason I stopped using snapchat was because I couldn't use it on low connection in Mexico, but Instagram worked marvelously. I use Whatsapp to stay in touch with my family in mexico and Facebook to stay in touch with my mom. There's something extremely powerful about that in my opinion.
They're conservative with their push and development of camera and VR technology which is wise in my opinion give the many opportunities that exist in that space. They're pushing along with fintech in India, again with small business through Whatsapp. And they provide a suite of customer services for small business and entrepeneurs.

- Microsoft
I think they will have a great run during the cloud era of software development. Their acquiring of Github AND NPM goes to show how in touch they are with developer servicing.

- Paypal
Paypal has a marvelous history and is a battle tested pioneer in the fintech space. I see them repeating their previous successes by acquiring Honey. I work with Honey in the fintech space and now I'm understanding that Paypal has an auto coupon scraper on my Amazon purchases while my Visa ones don't. This is the forward thinking I love from Paypal despite not being as flashy as Square.

- Disney
Disney is quintessential american entertainment. I believe their deep roots in American culture and the entertainment industry will provide a solid bedrock for them for the generations to come.

- Waste Management
Sanitation and environmental, like internet connection technology, are about the same when it comes to market penetration. It is a scarcity. Sanitation is a critical part of any society's development and wellbeing. I think WM will be there to benefit from increased urbanization and industriousness from technology and wealth growth.

- Kansas City Southern
I'm Mexican and my family are avocado farmers. I believe in the future prospects of Mexico and its relationship with its neighbors. Mexico is a bustling nation and many youth are international students that carry degrees. This is a far cry from having military policing streets in rural neighborhoods decades ago. Kansas city southern is part of the supply chain that connects Mexico to main industrious Mexican states like Monterrey, Jalisco, and Michaocan. I like rail in this regard because it's a lot of weight in one operation of heavy materials. So Canadians that use Mexican mining will also benefit from this railroad.
- Nintendo
I believe in the future of gaming as a market and if I were to take a shot at who would be the most stable, I would vote for Nintendo. Like Facebook, they approach the family unit and grow generationally. I love their curveball approach to gaming and I think that creativity, along with it's customers trust, will be something I can hold onto for a long time versus companies that have a history of developing games like Call of Duty or World of Warcraft. Nintendo can take different forms: in the living room, at sweaty tournaments, online, mobile, on your phone, on a TV, in the movies, etc.

Closely watching
- United Health or Cigna
This is only going to grow and wont change due to American politics for 8 years at a minimum.
- Cisco
Same as Microsoft but for IT.
- Impossible Foods IPO
I've been vegetarian for 10 years and Impossible Burgers has been one of the most mindblowing experiences of my life. The product is phenomenal and on a league of its owned compared to Beyond Meat. IMHO Beyond taste like cheap school lunchroom burgers and Impossible tastes like something I would be excited to feed my family. If their pork products are great then I am ALL in because Chicken products are by far the easiest thing to replicate. I'm extremely excited about this product.
- Visa
They make a ton of money on transactions. I saw them hiring for blockchain development so it leads me to believe that they're adapting.
- Square
I work in the fintech space and I like their modest approach to financial services. Their acquiring of a bank charter is actually incredibly important due to all the procurement and legal processes that go behind being a fintech company (abiding by federal security laws, etc). The one reason I like Chase banking is because I enjoy their app. I see Square as a competitor to Chase, surprisingly.
- Apple
Apple designs its products with customer service in mind. I think the future of education technology will likely go to Apple because of this. Their screens and cameras are wonderful and I can see them pioneering computer vision products because of this. They are THE American Tech company.
- TMobile
Aggressive as hell and grew to be a large player through savvy moves across time. Their customer service is a highlight for me.
- JPM
Customer service for banking is unmatched IMO. If any legacy banker will make it across changes, I believe Chase is doing what it takes to adapt and think forward.
- Planet Fitness
$10 gyms, clean, and casual enough for the general population. You can't beat $10 gym membership when you're broke as fuck. I've been a heavy lifter before and still used Planet fitness in my transitions across states and whatnot. I need to look at their numbers more closely.
- Volkwagen
I trust Europe and Japan to take EVs more seriously. I don't know who will seriously come close to competing with Tesla in the long run but they'll have to.
- Panasonic
Panasonic, much like AMD, did not immediately reflect the value of what they have produced. AMD did not explode inline with bitcoin or cheaper GPU consumption, in the same way Panasonic did not reflect a massive spike in price after speculation in Tesla grew. They're an important arm to the EV market that spreads across many players ranging from Tesla to Toyota to big tech.

- Lyft
I think Lyft's focus on customer service and regional clientele will pay off against Uber, who is growing too quickly and spreading thin. Lyft will benefit from the development of computer vision and Big tech's interest in automanufacturing.

- Crypto (Bitcoin or XRP)
I like crypto as a technology as a software engineer. I see the value in a faster process for procuring and exchanging legal tender that does not have to go through the bottleneck of the ACH process or through legal issues like the PATRIOT ACT or the Bank Secrecy Act. It still fundamentally respects those laws without the frustrations of banking service bottlenecks. I think the halvening protocol has an interesting affect on Bitcoin and supply and the market that it's trying to generate.

Forbes miner's union plan, let you make it clear

Forbes miner's union plan, let you make it clear

https://preview.redd.it/51dwnbfy30451.png?width=900&format=png&auto=webp&s=79b57b192df4f4f11f0c7eb6ae849b169891f37c
Learn from famous teachers: Dao organization comes from Cosmos, poca and other well-known open source projects as well as a number of Wall Street financial practitioners
Grounded Technology: the core research direction of blockchain developers "cross chain"
Looking at finance: building distributed financial infrastructure
Layout of mining industry: "mining machine, mine field and mine pool", and strive to build a trinity of mining giant whale in 2020
In 2020, Forbes, the most concerned blockchain 4.0 project, is about to launch its global mining plan: Forbes has released its own ASIC chip bitcoin miner, and GFS hard disk miner is under development. At the same time, Forbes deployed mines in various regions of the world, including China, Southeast Asia, the United States, Australia, Russia and other places, to protect the "consensus".
Forbes receives f2pool Based on the deployment of mining machines and mines in 2020, the Forbes plan will be launched with the strong support of internationally renowned mining pools. It is expected to build into the world's largest, most open and transparent comprehensive mine pool within three years.
Miner and quarry
Blockchain is revolutionary. It allows anyone to own and transfer assets through an open financial network without a trusted third party. There are now thousands of blockchain based assets, and the main way to produce encrypted assets is mining. "Mining", i.e. encrypted assets, represents the wealth anchored by the blockchain system, "mining" is the most direct means for all the network to obtain wealth. When the miner obtains the right to pack the blocks according to the consensus rules based on cryptography, and packages all the transactions correctly, the mining behavior can obtain the reward (token) given by the blockchain system for its honest record of the blocks, and when the blockchain system gains value promotion due to the growth and development of the participants, the token obtained by the miner will also be given higher and higher The secondary market value of. The miners produced the initial system pass. Therefore, mining industry has become the most upstream of blockchain industry.
It can be said that mining industry is the foundation of the whole blockchain industry, which determines the 0 or 1 of a blockchain system. The mining equipment we use is the miner.
https://preview.redd.it/jvfi6mfg40451.png?width=780&format=png&auto=webp&s=19dad192911d4a9addc1d285c7db5491c75904b0
The miner is essentially a computer. Personal computer is generally composed of CPU, GPU, memory, hard disk, motherboard and other devices. Mineral machinery is no exception in nature. Any mineral machinery is composed of motherboard + hard disk + mining chip. However, due to different mining machines for different algorithms of digital assets, such as GPU (or ASIC) for BTC, ETH mining, CPU for Monroe money mining, hard disk for IPFs, Bhd and other projects mining.
Forbes mining machine in the main board, hard disk, mining chip innovation, Forbes uses dpoc consensus algorithm, belongs to the hard disk mining branch. Forbes with the strongest computing power is also in the field of the Internet of things. In foreign countries, everything is connected, hundreds of millions of intelligent devices are connected with each other, and they have super computing power and stability. Forbes mining machines all over the world will be very suitable for the deployment of Internet of things protocol, and become an important component of blockchain + Internet of things.
The mine site is the offline site for the deployment and maintenance of mining machines. But for ordinary investors who want to enter the market, mining is difficult because the mining threshold is too high. Personal users want to mine, there is a huge deployment threshold and technical threshold. First of all, individuals can not get excellent electricity price, high temperature and high noise environment makes it impossible for users to mine at home. In addition, mining needs to be configured and deployed, and expensive mining machines need to be maintained regularly. Musk said that Tesla is not selling cars, but workshops. Standardization is necessary for an industry to achieve success. In the early miner Alliance Plan, Forbes launched its own BTC ASIC chip and bitcoin miner. At the same time, combined with major capitals, it created a global standardized Forbes mine, which was deployed and maintained in a unified way, greatly extending the service life of Forbes miner. According to the simulation test, Forbes I miner can operate stably for more than six years, which greatly reduces the mining cost and enables investors to obtain higher profits. Later, Forbes will log in to the Forbes hard disk miner in the ore pool after the main network goes online.
Forbes miners Alliance Program
Miner Alliance Plan: during a period of time when Forbes main network goes online, users can use collateral parallel chain assets (such as usdt, BTC, etc.) to lease computing power to deploy mining machines in global mines. In the lease term, the deposit is returned by the smart contract according to the number of days, and the mining revenue is obtained by the early participating nodes.
Due to the cross chain implementation of Forbes, a large number of nodes need to be deployed in the early days to complete the information interaction between the relay chain and the parallel chain. And with the scale of ore pool access, the marginal cost of new mining machines will be lower and lower, and the revenue will grow steadily. Therefore, Forbes started the plan of Forbes miners' alliance, realized the rapid scale of the mining pool with market funds, and realized the stable growth of mining profits.
Through the miner alliance, users can rent mining machines. In the form of "deposit contract" to ensure that each miner's fund is dedicated, and at the same time, for each miner, it is considered to realize the real deposit settlement on schedule through the blockchain intelligent contract. After the Forbes miner generates mining revenue, the user will get kusd stable currency. In the operation plan of Forbes Dao, all the miners who join the mine have the opportunity to convert part of the profits into GFS with unlimited potential.
It is estimated that the early participants in the Forbes miner's program will have more than 1.6 times the deposit during the lease term of one year. It was asked where such gains came from. In fact, as a representative project of blockchain 4.0, the appreciation of GFS is inevitable. At present, the trading of GFS secondary market has increased by more than 10 times in a week. With the continuous extension of parallel chain and the continuous exploration of financial business, there is almost no doubt that the growth of GFS exceeds that of bitcoin in a year, even if it is halved. Forbes Dao mass produces Forbes super miner through the digital assets mortgaged by users. After the cost is removed, it covers more than 1.6 times of the revenue to nodes. Almost the secondary market value of GFS alone is far beyond.
In addition, the BTC value dug out in the miner's Alliance plan will become a stable support for the miner's Alliance Plan, and 2020 is known as bitcoin minus half a year. Get BTC while digging GFS. To say the least, the price of GFS has fluctuated, and the BTC dug out is actually stable. Not to mention that the layout of Forbes gold stable currency, Forbes DEX and so on has been dragged down, and the user's income is cashed at any time. Forbes' miner plan is a three-way and multi win business initiative, which is the distributed power.

Discussão sobre Criptopmoedas (Bitcoin e Altcoins). Um pouco sobre o que aprendi e como você pode conhecer mais sobre esse mundo novo.

Oi, /Brasil!
Antes de qualquer coisa gostaria de fazer um ‘disclaimer’ sobre esse post:
Não estou aqui para fazer aquele marketing “Olhe como em apenas 5 passos você pode ficar muito rico!!”. Eu sou extremamente novo nesse mercado de Criptomoedas e aprendi tanta coisa nova e legal e gostaria de compartilhar meu conhecimento, tirar duvidas e quem sabe trazer novas pessoas nesse novo mundo.
 
Nesses últimos tempos vários posts sobre Bitcoin e Altcoins estão aparecendo aqui no /Brasil e muita gente discute sobre o assunto. Alguns extremamente céticos, uns curiosos e outros que já conhecem um pouquinho do assunto. Eu tentei dar um help pro pessoal que fez perguntas nos outros posts e alguns se juntaram ao grupo que organizei sobre Criptomoedas no Discord.
 
Não quero trazer também o “invista até não poder mais”. Esse mercado de criptomoedas é extremamente volátil e você pode sim perder dinheiro com isso. Nunca invista o que não pode perder.
 

Quero iniciar comentando sobre algo que muitos céticos usam:

“Bitcoin é uma bolha, ela vai estourar e você vai perder tudo.”
 
O que não é uma bolha, certo?
Bolha do ‘dot com’ e bolha da Apple a bolha do Tesla. Existem vários outros exemplos que eu poderia dar, mas eu não vim aqui pra isso.
 
A ideia central de Criptomoedas é ser um sistema descentralizado de qualquer banco, empresa e governo, ser seguro, open-source, totalmente criptografado, que é apoiado pela matemática implementada. Toda a história da moeda deve ser aberta ao público e você pode ver toda e qualquer transação feita na rede. Essas transações precisam ser processadas por máquinas que confirmam que essa transação não é um double-spending ou alguém querendo criar moedas “out of thin air”. Se alguém quiser hackear o sistema ele vai precisar quebrar toda a Blockchain da moeda (explicação mais abaixo).
 
Blockchain (cadeia de blocos) é todo o registro de tudo que aconteceu com a criptomoeda. Cada novo bloco é ligado ao ultimo bloco existente. Nenhum dado subsequente pode ser alterado sem que todos os outros blocos sejam alterados. Fazendo assim a criptomoeda em questão super segura. Blockchain é estudada para aplicações de gerenciamento de identidade, registro médico, prova de documentos, etc.
 
Você pode fazer uma transferência pequena de alguns trocados até com centenas de milhares Reais para qualquer lugar do mundo. Imagine você aqui no Brasil tem um parente lá na Coréia do Sul. Você quer mandar R$3000,00 para o parente. Para isso você precisa ir até o seu banco, solicitar uma transferência de alto valor, pagar todas as taxas do banco, do seu governo, talvez até do governo do país que será enviado, esperar até a data estipulada para o dinheiro chegar ao seu parente (a partir do dia do envio+2). Faça a pesquisa, você pode pagar muito alto por isso.
 
Agora leve em consideração o Bitcoin. Mesmo com uma taxa alta nesses últimos tempos (da ultima vez eu paguei R$12,00), imagine você mandar esses mesmos R$3000,00. Só que a transação é feita em até 60 minutos. Você manda a ordem de transferência da sua carteira até a carteira do seu parente, essa transferência de Bitcoin é registrada, então processada pelos mineradores e depois de um tempo o Bitcoin é validado na carteira do seu parente. Depois disso ele pode já usar os Bitcoin no mesmo dia ou ir até um caixa eletrônico de Bitcoin e sacar em dinheiro ou até trocar por outras moedas ou por dinheiro em Exchanges.
 
Fora Bitcoin, nós temos centenas de outras criptomoedas. Várias são muito interessantes, como: Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Vertcoin. Outras são simplesmente enganações usadas para roubar dinheiro de quem investe nas criptomoedas. Infelizmente existem coisas ruins como essa em qualquer lugar do mundo. Sugiro também uma pesquisa sobre cada criptomoeda. Coinmarketcap é um site legal para você iniciar sua pesquisa nas moedas de maior valor, volume, tecnologia, etc.
 

Mineração

A mineração consiste em usar o recurso de processamento do seu computador para procurar e resolver blocos. Quando isso acontece uma recompensa é distribuída para todos os mineradores envolvidos na mineração. Você pode minerar sozinho (o que hoje é impossível para alguém normal) ou pode entrar em uma Mining Pool.
 
Recentemente comecei a minerar uma criptomoeda chamada Vertcoin. Não é necessário muito conhecimento em como funciona a mineração. Basta ter um computador com placa de vídeo legal (a partir de uma gtx 1060 é legal), baixar um programa chamado One-Click Miner (OCM), arranjar uma carteira da moeda (interessante a Electrum Vertcoin Wallet), apontar seu minerador para aquela carteira, selecionar uma Pool de mineração e clicar Start.
 
Na mineração de Vertcoin você usa o poder de processamento da sua GPU para procurar blocos na rede junto com vários outros mineradores. Quando um bloco é encontrado você é recompensado pelo tempo que você esta minerando. Quanto mais tempo estiver minerando, melhor. Mas até um limite claro.
 
Não vou dizer que vale a pena você minerar porque existem muitas variáveis para isso. Para mim esta valendo a pena. Com uma GTX 1080 consigo pagar o gasto extra de conta de luz e lucrar Vertcoins. Recomendo fazer o calculo e ver se vale a pena.
 
A ideia central que estou levando para minerar Vertcoin é que devido a sua história, seus desenvolvedores, resistência à ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) e sua transparência com a comunidade ela será adotada pelo mercado. Seu valor subiu de US$0,04 em Janeiro de 2017 para hoje no preço de US$5,4. Outra coisa legal é que o Vertcoin usa algoritmo criado por brasileiros, chamada Lyra2!
 
Se você, leitor, tiver interesse em minerar ou discutir mais sobre moedas e conhecer mais, eu vou sugerir entrar no Discord que criei exatamente para isso: https://discord.gg/aWfV2Q5. Somos um grupo pequeno, mas o pessoal lá é super amigável e me trouxeram muito conhecimento novo. Temos desde iniciantes até alguns veteranos no assunto. Temos uma Pool de mineração de Vertcoin (Veja aqui) também se alguém se interessar.
 

Conclusão

Esse mundo de Cryptocurrencies é muito novo, estranho, inovador e interessante. Aprendi muita coisa e nem estou a tanto tempo assim aprendendo. Tenho comprado, vendido, minerado e guardado várias moedas diferentes. Tenho lucrado uma grana interessante que não teria vindo caso continuasse igual meus amigos que dizem não ter dinheiro pra investir nisso, mas saem todo final de semana com amigos/namorada e gastam 50, 100, 200 reais. Deixasse de sair 1 fim de semana por mês e compra uma moeda “segura” como Litecoin ou Ethereum. Da um lucro legal em uns 10 anos caso for atento, trocar por Real quando necessário ou mudar pra outra moeda.
 
Tem muita coisa que ainda quero falar, mas não quero deixar esse texto mais extenso do que esta. Por isso, peço a você que está lendo para deixar seus comentários, a favor ou contra, que vou tentar responder, aprender coisas novas, tirar dúvidas, fazer perguntas também e ter discussões saudáveis.

Question about profitability of cryptocurrency mining using Amazon Cloud or Google

Hello guys, as the title says, I am new to bitcoin but by circumstance, I have obtained Google Cloud Credits worth $100,000 dollars. If one were to mine cryptocurrency using these credits in exchange for google's GPU processing power, what kind of return could one expect? and how long would it take? I am not the most software savvy, but I believe I can learn given enough time, patience, and discipline. I just need to know whether it is economically feasible or worth it. It seems that Google has a 24GB GPU processing unit with an on-demand price of 0.7 cents per hour.

Password cracking, mining, and GPUs

Paving the way for 2030, as said by /u/arsonbunny

The year is 2030.
You walk out from your apartment and go to the car sharing office down below. You pick out a Tesla Model D OGE edition and swipe your DogeCard in the door, it will cost 2 Dogecoin for 1 day of use. A nice yellow Lamborghini Dogeciélago drives by, you wish you could afford it but it will be over 50K Doge! You type in the coordinates for Starbucks and get driven there for a Dogesso, it will cost 0.1 Dogecoin. You then proceed to work at a major financial institution, where you give out mortgages for people looking to buy a GPU. As you drive home a bum taps your window during a traffic light stop: "Hey buddy, can I get a tenth of a Doge?" You say no, but you can give him some US dollar fiat notes you have laid over the floormats to protect from dirt. He accepts some begrudgingly...could come useful for toilet paper or lighting a bonfire in a trashcan.
You get home and look at your mail, sigh that the electricity bill is going up to 50 dogecoin a month. As you look at your kid working on his homework, you take pride in him and wish that you could give him the best life possible. At which point that regret dawns on you. You could have left your kid with incredible wealth, but instead you picked Bitcoin, you picked the big names that everyone said would be the future....That same old gnawing pawing feeling, because you knew you could have given him the world if only you were smarter. You ask yourself...

"Why didn't I go all in dogecoin back in 2018?"

What crypto did for a young Latin American enthusiast.

So, I wanted to share my experience in the crypto world and what it did for me, this ended up being longer than expected, so, sorry for the long post, also sorry if there’s grammar failures.
There’s a TLDR at the end just in case.
At my 25’s was when I decided to jump on this train, although I had heard about bitcoin a while ago when it was “brand new” I did let the bad things that were said about it cloud my judgment, something that still happens nowadays. I wasn't smart enough to research about it and have my own vision of the future, even though that I consider myself a tech enthusiast, I didn't.
I took my first steps when the mining\ETH boom, overpriced GPUs and out of stocks everywhere… With all this hubbub, I decided get know what was all this about. I started to research, reading, watching videos, learning, watching charts, and non sleeping doing all that… One of the things that I discovered was that I could get crypto by mining with my Rx-480, this was not only a gaming piece of tech, it turned out to be an investment, I got it for $190 a few months before the mining boom. I didn’t saw this mining thing as a long run thing, it was just to make enough for upgrading my old AMD FX PC to something better, ended with a Ryzen-Polaris build a few months later. Mining with only one GPU, it took time, I did $400 a few months later, back at that time Bitcoin was $2500~$3000 dollars, only If I knew, today that would be thousands of dollars lol
In my country $400 US were $18,000 DOP, that’s half my monthly salary (Not much, but enough, for now) after reaching my goal for a new PC, I stopped mining, I wanted to preserve my GPU and enjoy it for a few years more. (which didn’t happen for long, sadly, it died at the beginning of December, I had to put back on duty my old HD5570 (Picture inside ) that I had lying around, I hope to return it to retirement soon, since a really nice guy from reddit offered me his old 650Ti after trying to help me with the RMA process, which is really difficult and expensive from here, almost like buying a new one... so that’s gonna be like a “after christmas” gift for me)
Back to the story... after reaching my goal, I was still fascinated by the crypto world, so many different currencies and tokens, all this technology behind it, a new form of economy that was about to hit the world, one where we all had a chance of getting something more from what we are allowed by governments and this monopoly ruled by fat greedy pigs that control everything for their own benefit.
I remember leaving some $20s distributed in BTC, ETH and LTC, the idea of investing on crypto was always on my head, even if I didn't have enough money for that, or even if that meant making some excuse to my girlfriend (now future wife) for not going out to the movies more than once in that month… And the next one too lol.
Got to save $100 in that month and bought BTC with my money for the first time. Which became small investments in many altcoins. Didn't sleep much many nights researching, learning and watching the market for a few nights, I even got to annoy my girlfriend because I “was always talking about bitcoin” she told me many times “If you want me to listen to you talking about that, talk me when you get a car out of it, then we talk, or at least show me when it becomes real money ” lol
After doing my “homework” my chosen altcoins where ETH, LTC, OMG, QTUM, GNT and GNOIS, sadly I didn't hold them long enough before getting all back to BTC. I managed to get another $100 to invest a month later, I was still reading and learning about almost every well mentioned altcoin. The ones that I decided to buy were XRP, IOTA, XLM, NEO, ARK, EOS, ADA and of course some ETH and LTC. Even though that I had the interest in getting a few more, like ETC, TRX, POWR, SUB, BCH, KMD, ICX and maybe a few others, money was not enough.
Time passes, a few months, where my $200 investment became almost $700, and the other $20 are almost $150 now, for a total of something around $850, which I’m cashing out, although I’m keeping 50 doge coins that someone on reddit gave me a few weeks back, lets hope it goes to the moon one day lol…
Putting things on perspective, those $850 are $41,000 DOP, a little more than my monthly salary.
This didn't made my a millionaire like some lucky folks out there, nor gave me a car or a house, not even close, but this money and my Christmas/Thirteenth salary is going to be a relief now that I’m almost getting married, both (me & my gf) moving out from parents, and waiting for a baby together, paying for the all the marriage fees, rings, security/tenancy rental deposit, some medical appointments for her due the pregnancy and maybe some Christmas gifts for our families, but also, this gave me knowledge.
I did learn a lot, I did socialize with many cool people on reddit and many telegram groups, also got to know this fascinating new world with many technologies that are changing the world and bringing with it a new economy that can beat the pigs and the monopoly under their control, one where they print all the money they want and have everything for their own benefit.
it's amazing what cryptocurrencies has done for so much people, changing so many lives, it didn't made me a millionaire, but others have, so many young kids that were curious enough to put some interest on something useful, so many persistent people that jumped into this long ago waiting for this to change their life or just to get some extra money because the salary wasn't enough. Crypto gave me a possibility, it gave me a little bit of freedom, it gave me a better Christmas in difficult but wonderful times ahead.
Good luck to you all, may the profits be with you all, make good investment, be smart, read, learn and win, not only money, because learning is winning. I hope you all reach your goals and maybe something more than that, some lambos or teslas and I hope to join you all again one day not too far, before the rocket reach the moon.
Merry Christmas for you crypto fellas.
TLDR. This is a story of how I started mining with 1 GPU, how it took me months to reach my first goal, still fascinated by the crypto world, I kept learning about it. months later managed to get some extra cash ($200) to invest in many altcoins and btc which made almost 400% it didn't made me a millionaire, not even close, but got some extra money to help me starting my new life (paying security/tenancy rental deposit for moving out with my future wife, fees for our civil marriage and some medical appointments due expecting a baby) I’m left with no GPU to mine, only 50 doge and the desire of coming back one day before the rocket lands on the moon... But also with a lot of knowledge about new tech and knowing that there’s a new type of economy coming, one that gives more hope and freedom, knowing that the world is about to change.

So my college have that IBM cluster, could it be useful to mine?

My college have an IBM cluster for the students to make some tests and I'm thinking about using it to mine. I just have to say it's about my research, but i need to know how to use it to mine, can someone help me out? (I'm new in this bitcoin issue, I've read the FAQ but I need more answers).

The year is 2030.

You walk out from your apartment and go to the car sharing office down below. You pick out a Tesla Model D GRLC edition and swipe your GarlicCard in the door, it will cost 0.2 Garicoin for 1 day of use. A nice yellow Lamborghini Garliciélago drives by, you wish you could afford it but it will be over 500K Garlic! You type in the coordinates for Starbucks and get driven there for a Garlesso, it will cost 0.01 Garlicoin.

You say no, but you can give him some US dollar fiat notes you have laid over the floormats to protect from dirt. He accepts some begrudgingly...could come useful for toilet paper or lighting a bonfire in a trashcan.
You get home and look at your mail, sigh that the electricity bill is going up to 5 Garlicoin a month.

Uh, I’m Marketing Specialist (Guerrilla)

Uh, I’m Marketing Specialist (Guerrilla)
I’m so glad you brought this up! It’s the one thing that LTC lacks in and it’s ironic because LTC is the only coin deserving of a full-time marketing team. I think people are starting to finally realize that it’s all about the marketing, word of mouth and branding in crypto. To put this into perspective as a self-funded/semi-retired internet entrepreneur, I’ll tell you exactly what caused my successes and failures. Initially (when I was young), I would launch a service or product in which I used 90% of the budget for development and 10% left over for marketing resulting in failure. At this point if I ever launch a new product or service online 70%+ of the entire budget would be allocated towards the marketing, so I can’t stress the importance of this. 1 million CNY ($150k) applied to a dev team is absolutely incredible, but LTC desperately needs a monthly marketing budget as well. It would be fantastic if these Scrypt mining manufactures or farms could consider that expense the cost of doing business. $5k a month starting budget could really do wonders for creating awareness.
You can see here that we desperately need to address this issue: (sleeping giant) https://www.google.com/trends/explore?q=litecoin
There’s really no need for a DM regarding the marketing unless someone is brought on to manage a campaign, but I would like to give feedback publicly on what I’ve seen so far (since I’m all about community/transparency and appreciate feedback). I can be very direct and hurt people’s feelings, but the only thing that matters is the success of LTC for the sake of humanity (financial freedom from total economic enslavement), so here are my thoughts below.
1.) Current Slogan. I’d like to first go over the silver analogy since Xinxi mentioned it earlier in a reddit post. Right off the bat there are pros and cons that I see with this association.
Pros: During a BTC pump breaking ATH’s it is very beneficial being known as the Silver to Bitcoin’s gold as we’ve already seen demonstrated with the pump in late 2013. People feel that they missed the BTC boat and turn to an alternative that is underpriced and somewhat similar to BTC. Bitcoin paves the infrastructure path while Litecoin trails behind receiving all the benefits, such as the hardware wallet support. It positions Litecoin as a “non-threating” alternative to Bitcoin and acts as a logical trading pair. If you like BTC, then theoretically you should like LTC as well. The Bitcoin association to a digital gold is very powerful because many cultures still understand it as a monetary metal throughout history. I remember in 2011 the BTC community was really pushing that deep psychological comparison. In 2013, Bitcoin hit parity with gold reaching $1,200 and LTC at $48 which is also very similar to what we saw with physical silver. That was not by accident, but now that BTC has hit that objective I don’t hear thought leaders comparing it too gold much anymore and they claim one Bitcoin will be worth 1 million dollars feeding into that gold fever hype. The other issue with changing silver analogy is that Coblee literally designed LTC to be the silver to Bitcoin’s gold and produced 4x more inflation. LTC is also deflationary similar to gold, silver and Bitcoin so logically I guess it only makes sense. PM comparison takes a very complicated concept and helps simplify it for your average man on the street.
Cons: What I don’t like about the silver association. So I believe most here will agree that Gold feels like it’s more important/sought after than Silver. Considering historically kings have access to gold and commoners have access to the silver. I do believe it’s hard for people to chant and cheer, “We’re #2, We’re #2, We’re #2!!!”. Do you see what I mean here? It’s hard to get Excited about that for people and the same goes with hoarding LTC vs BTC. It also creates a dependency on Bitcoin for eternity and keeps LTC under the thumb of the BTC overlords (I know some of them and they hate LTC). The association should be more like Pepsi and Coke or Ying to Yang and one could technically still operate without the other. If LTC dies (I doubt this), then people will forget about the silver association and just continue chanting for Bitcoin #1/Gold2.0/21 Million/I’m Rich Bitches. If BTC dies or is bottlenecked to death it would be nice for LTC to still exist in the minds of the crypto community and that dependence is also dangerous for LTC (as we keep seeing Bitcoins lack of scaling). You’ll notice every time BTC bottlenecks transactions that the price rally gets cut short again which affects the potential LTC rally. This is also a big part of why hedging out of BTC into alts such as LTC is important, but many think why would I hold LTC when I can just hold BTC so they invest in something totally different like ETH as a hedge. The other issue is the ratio and stability of LTC when the ratio both snaps back (short-term) and is suppressed (long-term), so it doesn’t make for the most stable currency when this occurs (although a 40x gain in value again would be nice). Many precious metal bugs will state that the physical gold/silver ratio should be around 1:16 ounces and technically if BTC/LTC had identical network-effect the value ratio would be closer to 1:4. Right now, we’re nearing 1:200 which is absurd. Not only that, this association is not so accurate because the gold and silver volume/ratio of atoms on this earth is unknown. While the tokens to exist currently and in the future are precisely known with BTC/LTC (1:4) which means LTC is actually even more undervalued than physical silver to physical gold. It would be nice to talk about LTC without ever having to mention BTC and I do feel it’s a setback, but at this point maybe necessary especially considering this next BTC pump.
2.) Slogan Suggestion. As you can see I am really on the fence about the silver analogy, so maybe we can just leave it as an unspoken association as we seen Bitcoiners mentioning gold analogy less and less. The funny thing is Coblee and Xinxi totally changed the game with LTC while nobody noticed. It’s so different that I almost think this one change alone has put the silver branding into question. By adding CT transactions and Segwit it provides enough differentiation from BTC to make it a more worthwhile hedge for wealth storage (This is important and helps maintain a higher per coin price). For those that want to save their earnings in a more private blockchain they now have a reason to transfer some BTC over to LTC or bypass it as a means of storage and we already know it’s much better for transfer. Coblee states fungiblity reasons, but I already know people will be taking a second look at LTC after this is implemented because I personally don’t like when people can see all my transactions at a particular address, so having both a fully public and private blockchain is a must. Not only that he knows about the censoring of coins for associations with the dark web even if you weren’t directly involved and that hurts fungibility, so once again the right decisions are being made.
With that said, I would personally prefer LTC being considered the “The Swiss Bank of Money”. Money and Currency are actually two VERY different things by the way while gold/silver being money and currency being a derivative of that money. Obama was recently at South by Southwest and gave a speech mentioning crypto directly. It would be hilarious if we embraced his terminology of crypto. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsDijAoxG9g
“It’s like having a Swiss Bank Account in Your Pocket.”
Another interesting point is the ironclad privacy that Swiss Banks were known for has been completely undermined by the US probing and global FATCA compliance for all other banks globally. There is no safe haven anymore and in a subtle way this almost alludes to LTC being the last bastion of financial freedom. Picture this, but instead LTC: http://i.imgur.com/yrQYmxO.jpg (The financial system is being completely turned upside down with some countries going to negative interest rates… AKA you pay them for holding your money, so that picture is very accurate.)
3.) Litecoin Constitution or Oath. I will eventually get to the marketing aspect, but this all ties into everything, such as word of mouth. Every great company has a motto, a country a constitution or religions with commandments. It is important because it condenses down why we are here, our beliefs, what we are fighting for, our principles and what is out of scope of the vision or deemed acceptable. We’ve seen glimpses of this from Coblee like when he mentioned after an altcoin forked due to a theft that LTC will never hardfork due to a theft (So, let’s outline it for everyone). This is so important that I could even see a URL being dedicated to it so the world is clear as too what LTC is and stands for.
An example of what this would look like: Litecoin Beliefs/Oath: - LItecoin will strive to be as transparent as possible in all aspects of development, marketing, future updates. - Litecoin will strive to remain as decentralized as possible while maintaining a pristine blockchain. All aspects of management for social media and other platforms will also remain decentralized. - Litecoin will never reverse or roll back the blockchain or fork due to a theft or unauthorized transaction. - Litecoin will strive to operate the most financially fair network of wealth storage and transfer as possible. - Litecoin will always strive to bring modern financial access from the richest to the poorest and most remote people on earth. - ETC ETC.
Something like this needs to be in place in the event Charlie goes MIA or anyone else in management so we have our guide stone in place. A wealthy individual looking to speculate in LTC and store his wealth there would feel much more comfortable if he knew what LTC stands for. The examples I gave above are how I perceive LTC but writing it in stone would make everything clear for everyone.
4.) Enthusiastic Keynote Speaker. While I love Charlie to death and he’s fighting the good fight it would be nice to see someone like an Andreas equivalent for LTC (English/Chinese speaker would be incredible). When I hear Andreas speak about BTC I literally get goosebumps and my faith/passion is restored in crypto because sometimes we get beat down when our family and friends can’t see the “lite”. While I believe Charlie should never stop spreading awareness at as many events as possible he doesn’t come off as being very confident and a bit shy (which is fine). What I would like to see is high energy, passion, excitement and a confidence in LTC that is unshakeable. Assume the sale man! Charlie observed BTC operating in the wild, made a few tweaks and somehow made a better version of it capable of more yet incredibly stable/functional (without the suspect Satoshi early miner stash). However, I do understand it being difficult to hype LTC when there is not much to talk about since BTC hit all the talking points and LTC was no different other than 4x. For the future we really need to stress the scalability and fungibility improvements.
5.) Thinking out of the box. Xinxi’s paper wallet suggestion if done on a grand scale could be quite massive for adoption despite how primitive it sounds. This is the type of thinking we need to bring LTC functionality/awareness to the masses. Get creative/think outside the box and reach out to the appropriate companies/visionaries or start a business (we need more entrepreneurs and now is the time to get involved and solidify your spot in the industry).
Some examples: a. In previous posts we discussed the paper wallets for LTC. If I were to walk up to any person on the street and explain to them that I had one LTC paper wallet in my hand worth $4 and I would be willing to sell it to them for $5 and explained it was rare and similar to Bitcoin (second largest), in addition hit $48 in the past and could happen again and BTC is currently at $780.. I guarantee I could sell them on the spot. That could literally be turned in a business model and scaled as one idea that seems silly, but with awesome potential.
b. Tonight I watched the unveiling of the new Tesla solar home roof in addition to the PowerWall 2 unit. Seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRqSkR4ENAg Who’s to say we couldn’t contact Tesla and integrate a Scrypt Asic chip into their future PowerWall 3 unit and offset homeowner’s extra battery power into the form of crypto. I mine BTC, LTC, DASH, ETH/ETC and LTC is by far the most profitable to mine, so maybe this actually could be viable. It’s out of the box and worth looking into from a technical standpoint. Coblee literally lives down the street and could meet with them.
c. Another idea could be a sidechain mobile mining concept. I’ve thrown that idea around with the LTC devs, just to see what their thoughts were. It would have to be structured in a very particular way to work, but I believe there could be some merit there as well to draw in new users. I would really love some feature to be offered through this additional hash/computational power via a sidechain and potentially something like a Dash masternode for the monthly yield since for some the simple buy and HODL method doesn’t work for them. LTC is supposed to be “money”, so monthly yield is inappropriate similar to how gold doesn’t produce monthly yield by its very nature.
5.) More Accessible Scrypt Miners. It looks like Alcheminer is gone and Titans are no longer obtainable leaving really only Innosilicons terminators older ones and the newer ones coming. It would be nice if we had more affordable smaller miners for your average joe. GPU dominates the word of mouth aspect because of accessibility. Any gamer can get involved, he gets a few coins and then tells his friends being that there is also financial incentive for him to spread awareness. It would be great if we could see more scrypt manufactures producing something to fill this niche.
6.) Localbitcoins.com equivalent. I don’t want to offend anyone again, but the litecoinlocal.net website really does need work. Aesthetically it doesn’t look as visually appealing as LBC and also does not function as well. The .net extension is also not so favorable, so maybe they could acquire a .com equivalent and 301 it. In addition, I see little to no available trades which also does not bode well on the psyche of potential LTC investors. LBC is really a major backbone to Bitcoin adoption considering its functionality for the community and allows people to buy BTC in a more anonymous fashion. Plus, the owner of LBC makes great profit so there is much incentive for running a high caliber local exchange.
7.) Marketing. There really is no marketing for LTC and I’ve never seen any marketing efforts on behalf of the LTC association other than maybe some sponsored ads on reddit (which is fine). This really does need to change because when we saw Dogecoin doing the Nascar stuff or Jamaican bob sled team, I was thinking my god why can’t we get a budget going to spread awareness. While I believed even at the time that their particular choices were foolish I was impressed that they were actually trying to bring about public awareness for Doge. We can maintain interactions on all the social profiles we want in the world, but we really need to be paying for ad placement on networks such as YouTube, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, etc etc. A/B split testing with a test budget would be wise and gauge interaction via a landing page.
Side note: It’s funny one of my first projects when I was a kid was a penny stock newsletter site accessible via monthly subscription. We ran ads that were very professional and reasonable such as “Join our newsletter and receive monthly returns up to 20%-30%”. At the time that was very reasonable and realistic based on our track record/advice. The only problem was the ads performed horribly, but then eventually we said screw it and ran ridiculous ads like, “GAINZ of 30000X, GET RICH, GET BITCHES, LIVE ON BEACH IN PARADISE”…. And it worked almost too well. This tells me humans react off greed and dreams of grandeur. I see these claims with altcoins that get pumped which claims of “next Bitcoin” or will “overthrow Bitcoin”. I think that’ more sensational for most people and fills their dreams of becoming rich overnight. There’s those types of people and then there are the more ideological type like we see in the BTC community such as miners that will continue to mine at a loss because they believe so strongly in BTC or the HODLRS that won’t sell even when BTC loses half its value in 48 hours and people are shitting their pants. It would be nice if we could appeal to all demographics.
I keep hearing about the LTC Association meetings. Why don’t we publicly post the meeting day/time do it via Google Hangouts so we can all listen in on the conversation. We really need to build a sense of community and that’s lacking as well. Outreach programs could also be a very inexpensive form of marketing. Such as contacting Twitch.tv for potential integration of LTC. If the fundamentals were explained I’m sure there would be successes in furthering adoption of the technology.
If the Litcointalk.org website is not going to get fixed can we at least 301 it to the litecointalk.io address for now? Seeing "Hacked" at the top of the site doesn't instill confidence again... Not so great for branding... lol
… to be continued.
I’m starting to ramble. It’s 3am here and I’m half asleep. I’ll continue writing more on potential marketing efforts/ideas I’ve had (tomorrow).
In the meantime, I’ve love to hear feedback on things I’ve shared so far.

$1500-$2000 USD scientific workstation

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Primary: Scientific Workstation
Software includes -
-> computationally expensive MATLAB
- CUDA-enabled GPU computing for MATLAB
-> computationally expensive quantum chemistry/DFT software
- Examples of software - I want to be able to do GPU-assisted simulations as well
- VASP - has GPU support
-> computationally expensive FDTD software
- Lumerical FDTD Solver - commercial software (I have a license) that apparently does not support GPU support; seems the main bottleneck is memory bandwidth and not processing power
gsvit - open source FDTD with GPU support
Secondary: Gaming, Cryptocurrency (Etherium, Bitcoin mining)
I figure the workstation specifications will more than cover the computer's ability to do these, but I wanted to mention these all for completeness sake.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
1080p 60fps on high/ultra is good, but if the performance is possible wouldn't mind getting into 4k down the road. I mainly play Blizzard games and Minecraft right now, but may get into Destiny 2.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
$1500-$2000, but variable.

Provide any additional details you wish below.
As I mentioned, the primary purpose of this computer will be as a scientific workstation. I don't intend for it to be servecluster quality, but rather a strong desktop computer (duel Windows/Linux boot) that can run some relatively small, computationally expensive simulations and software in a reasonable amount of time, before larger projects/assignments are created for running on a computing cluster.
My main concerns are reducing bottleneck - I want to be able to run both CPU and GPU-intensive software in a balanced way, meaning I'm not skimping on the GPU for a better CPU and vice versa. I realize it could be difficult to compare
Some specific questions I have:
1) According to Intel's site, the max RAM speed supported by the i7-7700k is DDR4-2400. How does one use RAM with a higher speed? Do you need a Xeon processor? Also, I'm looking at 32 GB RAM.
2) For my purpose, should I definitely get a Z270? I read somewhere that it has a better memory controller than the Z170, but not sure about this.
3) How does the 1080 compare to 2x 1070? Or a 1080 Ti? For CUDA and for cryptocurrencies? I don't know too much about these from a computer hardware perspective, but am interested in learning more.
Thank you!

Blindspot Whitepaper: Specialized Threat Assessment and Protection (STAP) for the Blockchain

BlindSpot™
Stop attacks before ”zero day” and stop the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT)
We live in a dangerous world — our information technology systems face that danger every single day. Hackers are constantly attempting to infiltrate systems, steal information, damage government and corporate reputations, and take control of systems and processes.
Hackers share and use a variety of tools and techniques to gain access to, and
maintain access to, IT systems, including groups and techniques so dangerous
they have their own category - the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). At the
center of the APT are sophisticated techniques using malware to exploit vulnerabilities in systems. Traditional cyber security technologies use file signatures to locate these tools and hacker malware, but hackers are now actively camouflaging their tools by changing, customizing, and “morphing” them into new files that do not match any known signatures (‘Polymorphic Malware’). This introduces a massive gap in malicious file detection which leaves the enterprise open to exploitation — and it’s just not possible for traditional signature-based systems to keep up. In fact, signature-based anti-virus and anti-malware systems are only around 25% effective today. BlindSpot™ sees through it all, even as the files morph and change in a futile attempt to remain camouflaged.
Digital File Fingerprints
Any File Type, Any Language, Partial Matches, Exact Matches
BlindSpot™, the adaptive security solution from BlindSpot™, can see through the
Polymorphic camouflage used by the worlds most advanced hackers by utilizing
digital file fingerprints and our proprietary adaptive BlindSpot™ ‘brain’ that constantly analyzes the fingerprints of known malicious files and tools to locate partial matches within the files on your systems - servers, laptops, desktops, USB drives, and even mobile devices. BlindSpot™ can cut right through the Polymorphic files, revealing the true hacking tools underneath, even if they are only fragments or pieces of a more complete set of hacking tools and technologies.
Most cyber attacks happen weeks or even months after their initial penetration and access to a network or system, and even the simplest attacks tend to have a fuse that is typically several days. It takes them time to map out a system, probe for the information they want, and obtain or forge credentials with the type of access they need. But from the moment their tools first land on your network and systems, BlindSpot™ sees them. If fact, BlindSpot™ can see them sitting on a newly inserted USB drive even if the files are not copied to your systems. This means BlindSpot™ can identify and alert you to malicious files and potential illicit activities before the attack happens - before zero day!
How does BlindSpot™ work? BlindSpot™ sits on the endpoint and continuously monitors file activity. Digital fingerprints, which can be used to find partial matches of any file type in any language, are reported back where they are kept forever in a temporal repository.
BlindSpot™ looks through all of the digital fingerprints — both those from files on your systems and those in a constantly updated database of known malicious files and hacking tools, to locate and alert you to any indication of hacking, malicious files, or illicit activity. BlindSpot™ is a disruptive technology that can see polymorphic malware and stop attacks before zero day.
Digital File Fingerprints are created from a file or a piece of digital data/information by using advanced mathematics to look at all of the small pieces of data that make up the file to create a very small, unique piece of mathematical data — a digital file fingerprint. Files may be of any file type and in any language - digital fingerprints can find partial and exact matches regardless of what is in the file itself.
Just like with humans, once a fingerprint has been taken, you no longer need the
person to identify them. The fingerprint is enough. Even a partial fingerprint is
enough, and sometimes a smudge will do. Digital fingerprints work on the same
principle. Once BlindSpot™ has taken a digital fingerprint of a file, the file is no longer needed to identify it or to compare it with other files. And because digital fingerprints are tiny, they are easy to store. Even a multi-gigabyte file has a digital fingerprint that is no larger than 10k bytes.
Once you have two sets of digital fingerprints, you can compare them. Because BlindSpot™ starts with full fingerprints of known malicious files, it can identify matching files even when the digital fingerprint is only partially there. And with BlindSpot™’s advanced processing capabilities, file fragments, recovered data from a hard drive, partially downloaded documents, damaged files (both intentional and accidental) and other incomplete file structures can be properly fingerprinted in a way that still allows matches to be found.
Other technologies and software use static signatures, which do not work if any part of a file, regardless of how small, is different from another, or if the file is damaged in any way. BlindSpot™ and digital fingerprints enable partial matching, and can see through the camouflage that has become the industry standard for hackers across the globe. Static signature based solutions simply cannot do this.
Imagine your favorite detective drama on TV. The prosecutor says “This partial
fingerprint was found at the crime scene and the video camera across the
street recorded a perfect image of the person’s face.” The jury deliberates and
compares the picture and fingerprints of the defendant that were taken the day
before. They conclude, because the fingerprint was not all there and was not 100% identical, and because one picture showed a mustache that looked identical but was one millimeter longer than the other picture, that the two people were not identical - and set the criminal free. Well, that show wouldn’t be on TV long because crime would run rampant. Now imagine they had BlindSpot™. Criminals would be caught, the town would be a much safer place, and the show would be on for years to come.
Now imagine your network and systems without BlindSpot™, where traditional
exact match signature software is on your front line of defense. All kinds of
malicious files could walk right through and sit down on your hard drives, just
waiting for hackers to activate them. But you don’t have to imagine what your
systems would be like with BlindSpot™ — instead, simply contact us, get BlindSpot™ in place, and we’ll work with you to show you what’s really on your systems and help you keep those systems safe.
Ensuring System Compliance
Take the guesswork out of compliance assessment
All Government systems go through Certification and Accreditation. BlindSpot™ can help you with malicious code protection, for both security considerations and required compliance. Guidelines found in NIST 800-53 Revisions 3+ Security Requirements for System Integrity, SI-3 Malicious Code Protection, state that malicious code protection mechanisms must be employed at information system entry and exit points, including workstations, notebook computers, and mobile devices, to detect and eradicate malicious code.
BlindSpot™, with its continuous monitoring of the files on your endpoints and its
continuous updating of its known malicious file repository, will provide the
required real-time and full monthly re-scans of your files, will alert your
administrative staff when malicious code is found, will provide reports on
potential malicious files, illicit activity, and follow-up with very short false positive reports. BlindSpot™’s false positive rate is less than 0.01%. BlindSpot™ helps organizations meet the security requirements set forth and ensure compliance.
Intellectual Property Protection
Track sensitive information as it changes and moves around the enterprise
BlindSpot™ uses digital file fingerprints to identify partial and exact matches between files, regardless of file type or language. This ability can be used to track movements of and changes to files on a network of computers.
Government entities and corporations need to addresses the issue of monitoring
documents and files that contain sensitive information intellectual property, and it
is no longer sufficient to simply store them on a secure server and require specific credentials to access the information. People, both unintentionally and sometimes with malicious intent, copy and paste parts of documents, move files to USB drives, and otherwise edit and transfer files in order to get them on to a laptop, share them with a co-worker, or exfiltrate confidential information to outside networks and systems. BlindSpot™ carefully watches all of the files on your network, including what’s going with USB drives. If someone copies part of a file that has sensitive data to another file, BlindSpot™ sees it. Furthermore, BlindSpot™ can alert you when it sees questionable activity with certain documents/files or with specific computers/individuals.
Your sensitive files now have a watchdog that catches both unintentional and
malicious exposure to non-secure systems. Use BlindSpot™ to set up a custom
database of the locations where your sensitive files are stored, and BlindSpot™ will create a set of digital file fingerprints that can be used to track those files across your network and systems. This ensures that an organization can know where its proprietary and sensitive information is 365/7/24, in real-time.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a system for remote monitoring and control that operates with coded signals over communication channels (using typically one communication channel per remote station).
SCADA networks contain computers and applications that perform key functions in providing essential services and commodities (e.g. electricity, natural gas, gasoline, water, waste treatment, transportation) to all Americans. They are part of the nation’s critical infrastructure, provide great efficiency, are widely used, and require protection from a variety of cyber threats.
One of the most significant threats is benign files residing on the computers on
the network that morph into tools that hackers can use to gain access to the
network and the equipment it monitors and/or controls. These files might be part
of the operating system (binary files), might be a normal file that includes
scripting, or can even be a general data file moved onto the computer through a
network or a USB drive. By morphing, these files circumvent detection and
countermeasures. This is just one example of how a hacker can compromise and
exploit the system and the worst part is that you will never know until it is too late!
The recent Department of Justice announcement charging Iranian hackers
believed to be tied to the 2013 hacking of a New York dam illustrates this threat
clearly.
Enter BlindSpot™’s BlindSpot™ Adaptive Security — BlindSpot™ monitors all files of all types (any format or language) without the requirement of a translator or human operator. BlindSpot™ can see right through the hacker’s camouflage of
morphing files to quickly identify problems and threats before hackers have the
opportunity to active and use their tools. For U.S. and foreign based systems,
BlindSpot™ is a must have cyber security solution.
The BlindSpot™ team has extensive experience with SCADA systems and critical infrastructure. Our BlindSpot™ solution is critical to the overall security framework of such systems as it was designed to find the morphing, malicious files and associated illicit file activity that can lead to compromise of the integrity, confidentiality and/or availability of the system. Threats loom on both the inside and outside, and the dynamic nature of these systems require continuous, temporal monitoring to stop cyber attacks before they happen.
Stop Ransomware
Identify and remove Ransomware before it encrypts your files
Ransomware attacks are on the rise and affect Fortune 500 companies, Federal
organizations, and consumers. This vicious type of attack affects your user’s ability to get their work done and prevents users from accessing files on a device or network by making the device or network unusable, by encrypting the files your users need to access, and/or by stopping certain applications from running (e.g. the web browser). A ransom is then demanded (an electronic payment of currency or bitcoins) with the promise that your data will be unencrypted and accessible again following the payment.
If the ransom payment is made, there is no guarantee that the data will be
unencrypted or returned to a state of integrity and/or availability. Furthermore,
there is also no guarantee that the people behind the ransom will not re-infect
your systems again with a variant of what was initially used. Payment encourages future attacks because they know you cannot detect it and will pay again next time. Surprisingly, there are only a handful of known ransomware files in use today (e.g. Crowti, Fakebsod). Safeguards exist that use static signatures to find exact matches for these known files, but the moment these files morph or are changed in any way they become undetectable by these solutions. BlindSpot™ digs deeper with digital file fingerprints and can find the new files, enabling you to analyze, quarantine, or delete them before they activate. This pro-active approach can be the difference between a system being protected and a system being made completely unavailable with encrypted data being held hostage for a ransom. The image below is an actual Fakebsod notification message.
BlindSpot™ uses digital file fingerprints to detect the ransomware by looking at
both partial and exact matches and can report the problem before it happens.
Ransomeware of the past attacked your personal computer and today’s variant
attacks the servers — BlindSpot™ can detect both.
Case Study: March 2016 - Two more healthcare networks are hit by ransomware targeting servers. Advice from law enforcement — pay the ransom! (They did). File backups are insufficient. Paying ransoms is costly and only encourages repeat attacks.
BlindSpot™ is the most comprehensive solution available to detect and root out
ransomware. Take charge of the situation and put BlindSpot™ to work continuously monitoring your systems.

BlindSpot Solution Brief
June 29, 2018
POC: Shawn R. Key CEO, President
[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
Executive Summary and Estimated Pricing
CYBR’s BlindSpot is an enterprise cyber security solution that pro-actively identifies unknown and known malicious files and circumventive activity on endpoint devices. It is designed to interact with the CYBR Ecosystem and associated Web Portal. Distributed clients serve as the connection to the various BlindSpot server tiers.
BlindSpot identifies Illicit File Activity (IFA) and associated hacker activity via perceptive, industry standard algorithms. BlindSpot identifies exact AND similar files regardless of file type and/or language. This applies to ALL file types (e.g. documents, images, audio and video, carrier, etc.). Currently implemented safeguards and counter measures (such as anti-virus (AV), content filters and malware analysis tools) cannot address polymorphic/adaptive files and emerging threats. This introduces a massive gap in illicit file detection and leaves the enterprise open to exploitation. BlindSpot fills that void.
Additionally, corporations and government entities have a need to address known files and associated activity with regards to content and data management. The uncertainty of Intellectual Property (IP) location and propagation poses significant risk to the organization. The ability to identify the life cycle of a file (origin, source, destination, attributes and proliferation) ensures an organization knows where its proprietary, sensitive and privacy information is 365/24/7, in near real-time.
BlindSpot, is significantly different from solutions in the emerging Specialized Threat Assessment and Protection (STAP) marketplace, as it scales to meet the needs of enterprise organizations and the commercial marketplace. BlindSpot’s proprietary database consists of millions of unique, digital identifiers (hash values) that identify exact AND similar, modified files. This ensures that files existing in their original state or those which have been intentionally modified, do not circumvent detection. Our algorithms ensure near zero false positive return rates. The combinatory effect and the rare expertise of our executives and development thwarts potential competition as BlindSpot is an enterprise solution; not a tool.
The enterprise solution is provide as a license per IP address with associated appliance and/or server hardware requirements.
CYBR BlindSpot Technical Deep Dive
CYBR’s BlindSpot product is currently available as a Software as a Service) (SaaS) deployment blockchain solution and will be available as a full enterprise-install by Q2 2019. In both implementations, end-point agent software monitors the hard drive(s) of a computer or server, analyses any files that change, and reports [multiple] file hashes back to the main system. This enables the main system to effectively monitor which files could be malicious or represent intellectual property on the computers and servers within the customer’s network. By using fuzzy hashing algorithms, the system can detect polymorphic malware and intellectual property that has been partially hidden or obfuscated.
Applications
End-point (client) agent: native to each major OS as a fat client. Currently we have end-point agents for Microsoft Windows-based systems using MS .NET c# 2.0/4.5 and C++, although the c# portion will be replaced with all c++ code to increase scalability, efficiency, and security, in Q1 2016. End-point agents for Mac OS (written in Objective-C) and popular Linux platforms (written in c++) will ship in Q1/Q2 2016. Development work on the CentOS linux agent will begin in December 2015.
The Control Application enables system administrators to configure each end-point agent, the system itself, and to actively monitor and access reports on files that have been identified by the system as problematic or of interest. At this time the Control Application is able to provide configuration and monitoring services but is not yet ready for customer on-site deployment and is therefore only available in a SaaS model.
The middle-tier of the system, the Portal sever, currently runs in MS .NET and is written in c#. This tier will be upgraded to a full c++ implementation to increase scalability, efficiency, and security, in Q1 2016, and will run as a standard web server extension on a Linux platform (CentOS/Apache).
The data-tier of the system currently is running in MS SQL Server 2008/2012 and uses transact-SQL tables, but does not use any stored procedures or transactions. Although this tier is sufficient for scalability through mid to late 2016, a no-SQL version of the data tier will be developed in 2016.
The Crush server (hashing services) currently runs on MS Server 2008/2012, is written in c#/c++ and is a) being ported to run as a (c++) daemon on a standard Linux (CentOS) server, and b) being re-engineered to function as a massively parallel application (c/c++) running on NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerated systems. The Crush server communicates with the data-tier directly and the C2 server indirectly. Multiple Crush servers can run simultaneously and are horizontally scalable and fault-tolerant.
The C2 (Command and Control) server, written in c# and being moved to c++, communicates with the data-tier directly and the Crush server and Control Application indirectly to provide scheduling, system health and integrity, and prioritization services, as well redirecting jobs to maintain fault tolerance of the back-end server components. Multiple C2 servers can run simultaneously and are horizontally scalable.
Hardware and Network:
The basic architecture of the system has two different stacks of software. First, a typical 3-tier approach isolates data storage from end-point and Control Application access with a middle-man protocol altering Portal server. In the SaaS model, the end-point and Control Application software reside on-site with the customer, and the remaining stack components reside at the SaaS hosting datacenter. The second stack consists of multiple horizontally-scalable server components that run entirely in the backend as daemons and interact primarily through the data area to provide the services that are being marketed and sold to the customers. The two stacks are kept somewhat separate from each other in order to buffer one against the other in times of extreme load and for enhanced security.
Following is a description of each software module in the system and how it relates to the others:
The system has one component for data collection (the end-point agent software, which resides on the desktop computers and servers within a deployed customer site), one component for system administration (the Control Application, which resides on a desktop computer that the customer has access to or that an analyst can access through the SaaS system), and a collection of software processes/daemons and a data storage area that comprise the back-end.
The end-point agent collects data from the end-point computer, passes it to the Portal server, which in turn stores it in the data area.
The C2 server monitors the in-flow of data from the end-points, and tasks the Crush server(s) to analyze the data and compare it to databases of known good, known bad, and watch list files, in an efficient manner.
The C2 server also provides notification to the customer of any problematic or watch-list files following the completion of the Crush server tasks.
The Crush server monitors the data area, and performs batch or real-time processing of data as instructed to by the C2 server.
Technology
CYBR’s BlindSpot software is a commercially available product that combines a small footprint end-point agent with a centralized monitoring and management system to track files and file changes on the end-point using partial-match digital fingerprints rather than rigid full-match-only file signatures. As files and data buffers are created, edited/altered, and moved either through the network or via removable media devices including USB drives, the product uses its unique and proprietary technologies in combination with industry standard technologies to identify and locate both known malware and unknown [polymorphic] malware on end-points that are continuously monitored by the product. Staff is notified, depending on the urgency or type of digital fingerprint identified, through integrations with 3rd party SIEM solutions, email/SMS transmissions, and reports that are available using the central management system. A false positive rate of partial digital fingerprint matching of ~1 in 10-12 means staff will not be bombarded with unnecessary alerts, maintaining staff efficiency.
Overview: Traditional anti-malware products use static file signatures to locate known malware but have no means of detecting unknown malware, CYBR’s product uses digital file fingerprints that can identify both partial file matches as well as full file signature matches and in doing so can locate and identify both known and unknown malware within the deployed enterprise. A combination of industry standard and publicly available algorithms and CYBR’s own proprietary algorithms, trade secrets, methods, optimizations, and intellectual property for which a patent is currently pending (which is owned solely by CYBR) are combined to form a comprehensive anti-malware platform and continuous end-point monitoring product that is completely unique in the marketplace. Through the use of our proprietary algorithms and optimizations, the product has the ability to scale to the enterprise level and can track desktops/servers as well as mobile/phone/tablet/Internet of Things (IoTs) devices.
Project Implementation: The implementation of this product would include both the commercially available BlindSpot product as well as prototypes of integration packages to connect with the on-site Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and other systems and prototypes of end-point agents running on operating systems that are not yet available in the currently available version of the product. Both the integration and end-point agent prototypes would be based on existing modular code/functionality and would extend functionality past the currently available modules to ensure the full needs and requirements of the project are met. A full version of BlindSpot would be deployed on servers at/on the enterprise site, and prototypes of both SIEM integrations and new end-point agents would be deployed to augment the full production system. Information flow between all areas of the full system and prototypes would be tested and verified with increasing scale to ensure the level of performance required is available prior to the completion of the project.
End-point Agents: Each end-point is installed with native low-profile proprietary agent software that minimizes both its file system footprint and CPU use. The current product has a native end-point available for Microsoft Windows OSs (both desktops/tablets and servers) in production, and has native end-point agents in development/prototype stage for iOS, Android, MacOS, and RHEL/CentOS, with additional popular Linux derivatives to follow. The main job of the end-point agent is to communicate with the OS and monitor the file system for any changes in files that occur. When changes are detected, a digital file fingerprint of the file is taken and reported to the centralized data store, or cached until a later time if the centralized data store is unreachable (e,g, no cell coverage, laptop not connected to internet). The agent normally runs in “stealth-mode” and uses minimal CPU, RAM, and file system footprint so as not to disrupt the end-user’s workflow or impact system performance. Taking a digital fingerprint of a file and reporting it is very fast and thus the main job of the end-point agent is not system resource intensive. The “heavy lifting” is done on the back-end and does not burden the users or the end-point devices. Configuration of each end-point agent is conducted through the centralized management system, and changes in configuration are transmitted to the end-point agent within a few seconds (provided there is network connectivity).
Central Data Store: A collection of databases on the back end store file watch lists, known good and known bad digital file fingerprints (whitelists and blacklists containing digital file fingerprints of known malware), priority lists and configurations, end-point configurations, last-seen lists, and the full temporal accounting of all digital file fingerprints reported by end-point agents. As new threats are identified they are added to the central data store. As files on end-points change or are edited, their new digital fingerprints are added to the central data store as well. As new threats are identified though polymorphic partial matching, they are added to the known bad list as well.
Identification of Known and Unknown Malware: By comparing the databases of digital file fingerprints of known malware and digital file fingerprints of files on end-points, the product’s Crush server(s) use sophisticated algorithms to compare the partial digital file fingerprints, regardless of content of the files themselves. The product looks at the raw data (bytes) in the files when creating the digital file fingerprints and as such all file types/formats/languages are handled. This means that all file types and data in any and all languages can be compared with similar files. Binary DLLs, MS Word documents and spreadsheets (MS Excel, csv, …), JPEG images, Javascript, HTML, Executable files (.exe) — all of these files are handled by the product and known/unknown malware within them can be located using the digital file fingerprints in the centralized data store and Crush server’s analysis.
Scale, System Throughput, and Priority: A single Crush server can serve a small enterprise (100s or 1,000s of end-points), and a horizontally scalable array of Crush servers can be used to provide identification of malware for large enterprises. Similarly, databases in the central data store can be split and maintained/mirrored on several servers or run in a monolithic configuration. This makes the system highly scalable and able to be adapted to enterprises of varying sizes/scales while maintaining a good price/performance ratio. Priority lists can be designated for Crush servers such that high-priority end-points and/or high-priority malware fingerprints can be compared and identified in real-time, and similarly, low-priority lists (e.g. malware fingerprints that have not been seen in months or years) can be run in the evenings or when the system is running below normal load to ensure both immediate analysis of high-priority threats and comprehensive analysis of low-priority threats.
Integration: Several modular integration points within the product enable the straight-forward integration with 3rd party SIEM software and other reporting/management tools and systems. Distinct “notification channels” within the product are used based on the type of threat detected, the priority level of the specific threat detected, the confidence of the match (low percentage match of digital fingerprint vs high), and the location of the match (specific end-point list). Each notification channel has integration points that can be linked in with 3rd party systems so that staff are notified using software and procedures they are already familiar with and trained on (i.e., through a SIEM solution that is already begin monitored by dedicated, trained staff). Prototypes of each specific integration would need to be developed as a part of this project to match/communicate with the exact SIEM (or other) system that is in use at the deployment site in the mannemethod desired. Such a prototype would be developed for the purpose of evaluating the technical interconnectivity between systems to meet the requirements of the deployment, and following the prototype testing period, would be load-tested and stress-tested to ensure it’s performance meets the demands of a highly scalable environment, leading to a mature integration over a period of 3-6 months following the initial prototype period of 1-3 months.
Technology Section Summary: With end-points being continuously monitored by the product, both known and unknown malware threats delivered by the network and removable media will be detected and reported through SIEM system integration and direct email/SMS messages with minimal impact to the end-point (on all major OSs, including desktop and mobile). Centralized management and temporal monitoring of digital fingerprints enables the system to proactively locate and identify malware threats before zero day as well as enabling the staff to conduct their own investigations of systems either in the present or the past for forensic investigations. This makes CYBR’s BlindSpot a complete product that reaches all of the end-point devices to ensure safety and security from all types of malware threats.

What to do with quad V100 machine?

I have access to a Supermicro SuperServer 4028GR-TXRT with 4 cross-connected NVLINK NVIDIA Tesla V100 SXM2 GPUs. (https://www.supermicro.com/products/system/4U/4028/SYS-4028GR-TR.cfm). It is running Linux and has a business class connection to the interwebs. I can use it only when not being used by others (typically during the night each day). 1) I want to mine and hold either bitcoin or ethereum. Is either coin more suitable for GPU mining? 2) What is the best software to load onto the rig to best exploit the configuration? Do any software packages have an easy way to detect other users logging into the platform and hence going into sleep mode? 3) Would it yield more coins joining a mining pool vs lone mining vs renting out the time?
Many thanks!

When will we see the first VR blockbuster movie? by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
VR is not so easy to make movies for. Plus, VR by its very nature requires one human per hmd. So the method of distribution is not as clear cut as a motion picture cinema. I mean the distribution is fine, in fact it is probably easier than ever. What is difficult is that you have to be in a VR hmd to watch the movie. Mass consumption of a motion picture will not come quickly.
But give things a couple of years. Really, that's it--maybe about 5 years, when VR hmds are more like glasses (and they're gonna be) The FOV will be to your peripheral vision, the resolution will look like, well, real life depending on things like "meta-lenses" and "light-field" technology.
I'm an early adopter of VR. On my Oculus Rift is a VR experience that is not a movie per se, but a demonstration of the commitment of Hollywood to develop for VR. The app is called "Within" and the short is called "Take Flight". It is star studded. It is also one of the truly fully 3D VR features out there. A lot of VR real life imagery is 360 degree immersive, but 2D flat like an Omni theater around you sort of. This short though? Wow! I highly recommend it.
But this short is analogous to a motion picture made in say, 1895 by the 'Lumière brothers'. Film makers don't really understand the method of the medium just yet. We have not even arrived at a Georges Méliès moment yet. But as the decades go by, it's going to get pretty crazy with new forms of genre that simply don't exist today. Many movies will probably center directly on the observer in some kind of way. The trick is to get you look where the director wants you to look. "Take Flight" does that by putting the action in a full orbit around you. The effect is pretty keen, but probably primitive by standards of say 20 years from now. Of course since this is futurology, things may be way different in 20 years too. All that "accelerating change" you know.
I just got me delivered an 'Oculus Go' yesterday from Amazon. I watched a very good resolution "Take Flight" 100% tether free.
It's like... magick.
I have some very distinct thoughts about VR if you like.

How Important is it for Self-Driving Cars to be Electric? by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
Interestingly automobiles were developed to be electric as early as 1884. Thomas Edison tried his darndest to popularize the electric car. Even early models of electric cars were nearly silent with a gentle hum, they did not have to be cranked and they did not vibrate and stink of fumes. But it was simply too early in rechargable battery history for the electric car to take. Also they just could not drive as fast as an ICE. By 1913 with the advent of the electric starter (no more hand cranking) and an absolute plentitude of petroleum--cheap gas and collaborating automotive manufacturers put an end to the electric car almost in it's entirety as a dedicated consumer product until pretty much the 1980s.
Now of course our electric cars have prodigious battery storage capacity (range), can drive just as fast if not faster than any ICE and one can be charged in roughly the time it takes to pump gas in a regular ICE.
I don't see a downside to this. Certainly it would help to abate human caused global warming. And to argue that they are too quiet and can't be heard approaching is one of the stupider arguments in human history. To me that is like saying; " Where are we going to get all our transplantable organs from without healthy people tragically (but usefully) dying in human caused MVAs once these SDVs take over?"
Plus I want that futuristic "hum" in my level 5 autonomy subscription SDV.

Delivering VR in Perfect Focus With Nanostructure Meta-lenses by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
This is my quote from the other day. I knew this was coming.
Then we have VAR. It is ultimate primitive today. But already powerful new technologies are developing that will take VAR, but particularly VR and will make it a technological phenomenon such as the world has never seen. The most recent was that weird "metalens" that I just learned about the other day. And everyone else did too. It was big news in this sub-reddit. But my point is that technology is ideally suited to advance our VR in ways that we cannot today even comprehend.

Tesla making model 3 battery packs in 17 minutes down from 7 hours by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1,329 points 3 months ago
Interesting takeaway about "over-automating" things.
“One example would be, we have these fiberglass mats on top of the battery pack. They’re basically fluff. We tried to automate the placement and bonding of fluff to the top of the battery pack, which was ridiculous. ‘Flufferbot,’ which was really an incredibly difficult machine to make work. Machines are not good at picking up pieces of fluff. Hands are way better at doing that.
Me: "Not for much longer I bet."

The Army Is Working on Brain Hacks to Help Soldiers Deal With Information Overload by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 4 points 3 months ago
Important takeaway:
Separately from the Army's Cognition and Neuroergonomics Collaborative Technology Alliance and DARPA's Squad X, the military has been working on an “implantable neural interface” that could allow soldiers and AIs to directly communicate.
That's right, a brain modem, one that translates data into electronic impulses that are compatible with a human being's own thoughts.

Biology will be the next great computing platform, DNA will be the code that runs it, and CRISPR will be the programming language. by mvea in Futurology


[–]izumi3682 5 points 3 months ago
I always think something like that too. But then I think about what exactly our goals are.
Consider the bird and the horse. Humans have always wanted to fly like the bird. Through science and technology we managed to fly like the bird. But our manmade "birds" today can move at nearly seven times the speed of sound. I am not even including spacecraft. For most of recorded human history we used the horse to travel about and carry things. Now our manmade emulations of the horse are the multitude of methods of artificial automotive transportation to include the train and the plane, the car and the truck. These clever emulations courtesy of the industrial revolution took the example of the bird and the horse and changed them beyond anything we could recognize and improved them, by our standards, absolutely astronomically. And darned if the narrow AI is not going to soon be running all of these devices in another exponential technological improvement. Watch as in the next few years you see the advent of the level 5 autonomy human passenger carrying flying drone!
Just imagine what our emulations of the human mind are going to be like.

Artificial intelligence vs intelligence augmentation by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 3 months ago
Well now, this is kinda what we should be angling towards. A manner of easily accessing the narrow AI with our minds. This is not so much a tomorrow or next year technology though. I would say it is going to take between 20-30 years to realize. That seems kind of long from today, but in the scheme of human recorded history of the last 6,000 years, it is as brief a time as the life of a mayfly. And the reason I say 6,000 years is because on the other side of that is a mostly (hopefully) 'human friendly' technological singularity.
A human of today, 2018, would no more be able to comprehend a derived human after that TS, than an australopithecus could comprehend a homo sapiens sapien's abstract thought, language based speech and tool-making abilities.
I see evidence of efforts today that we are striving to work towards that kind of TS. The development of the BMI and even that neat little trick of a device that can attach to your head externally and can "understand" your sub-vocalizations and have a assistant bot chat back to you through an earphone, demonstrates that not too long from now, we will have the sum total of all human knowledge within each human mind as naturally accessible as breathing. But a lot more understanding of how thoughts and neurons and neural networks and interfaces work needs to be done. Like I said 20-30 years.
But of course so many other factors are going to come into play in that intervening time, that this technology will seem very logical to everyone. And it is absolutely going to be necessary. I read not too long ago that in the last 2 years we have produced more information than the last 6,000 years up to 2 years ago, combined. See? That is why we call it "big data". (Yes, I understand a significant percentage of that is screamingly funny cat videos--but that doesn't detract from the point I'm trying to make.)
To be able to proceed as a sentient outer space or inner space (I have a "theory" about that) civilization we are going to have to be able to gainfully access and use that data. And we are also going to have be able to continuously absorb further data as well. As of today I have no idea how we are going to do this. I always fall back on my argument that if the laws of physics as we understood them in the year 1400, today 2018 or will in 3018, allow such a thing, we will at some point accomplish it.
And there is one more point that I must emphasize here in relation to all of this discussion. The term is "accelerating change".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerating_change
It is definitely a very real, demonstrable phenomenon. Our computer processing speed and capacity, "Moore's Law" be damned, is exponentially improving. All of the full sum of data we have today, plus our processing power is going to double in less than 5 years at a maximum. Sit for a second and take that in. And I am being wycked conservative here. I am not even taking the potentially transcending impact of fully functional quantum computers into account. The so-called impending "quantum supremacy". That in itself may change the rules of the game in ways we already can't imagine.
This processing speed, data capacity and our feverish development of AI, put humanity into a sort of race now. Will the AI stay external from the human mind? Or will we meld with it? Staying external worries me. External AGI and a potential EI could mean the end of our run. To my way of thinking the AI must merge with the human mind. I really don't think there is a choice. But like I said before, the resulting humans would be... well, not business as usual. A first step towards abandoning biology I suspect.

Technology is finally going to kill car dealers, and consumers win by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 21 points 3 months ago
So many institutions and norms in the last say, fifty years have been absolutely essential or at worst essential necessary evils. I am telling you that in as little as ten years, the world is going to change almost incomprehensibly.
The industrial revolution took roughly 200 years to fully unfold. This next revolution which I place as beginning in the year 2012 when GPU narrow AI began to really take hold, will take about 20 years to unfold.
We are approaching a knife edge of danger before we even have to worry about "AI overlords". The narrow AI, robotics and automation are going to, if not eliminate most employ, are certainly going to eliminate enough employ that we will hit a critical mass of societal unease. The potential of revolt and upheaval is high.
I can only speak for the USA here, but the USA government is well aware of what is coming and is frankly concerned. Here is an official report from about 18 months ago. I read this and I can see why there is concern.
First, here is the report dated Dec 2016.
https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/sites/whitehouse.gov/files/documents/Artificial-Intelligence-Automation-Economy.PDF
To make a long story short, the USA government recognizes what is coming in terms of AI, robotics and automation. The hope is that workers can be "retrained" or can accommodate to the AI, robotics and automation within a given profession. Ideas such as UBI and "post-scarcity are dismissed out of hand.
Here is the link to a comment I made a while back explaining the difference between an industrial revolution that took 200 years to unfold versus an AI revolution that is going to take about 20 years to unfold.

Bitcoin is the greatest scam in history by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] -2 points 3 months ago
I have always thought so. It took us 6,000 years to develop "fiat" in regular money. "Bitcoin" and it's ilk are just a few smarter humans taking advantage of the far larger cohort of less smart humans. In a sort of backhanded compliment, I see this as a good comment on the eternal brilliant cleverness of the human intellect. We will figure out AGI in no time I bet.
I'll just wait for "post-scarcity" my ownself. I been working 39 years. I can hang for 8 more til I retire. Or the AGI takes over. Or something.

VR Needs More Social: 77% of Virtual Reality Users Want More Social Engagement by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
Whoa--whoa! Give them a bit of time to get things right. VR as a consumer product has been available for 2 years. In the last one year, two highly advanced social VR sites came into being. Both are directly derived from "Second Life" btw. I just wanted to throw that in because I have been happily hanging out in SL for over ten years now. Anyway, the two sites are "High Fidelity" and "Sansar". I have been to HF numerous times. For as limited as VR is yet, this is a pretty darn well realized VR social arena.
Here is more detail if you are interested. I also talk quite a bit about Google EarthVR which is something else you might find truly amazing when it comes to VR.

Artificial intelligence is silly by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 4 points 3 months ago
The author of this article is thinking too limitedly. He is thinking like a human in the year 2018. He is trying to juxtapose what our world up to now is and has been, with what the future is going to bring. That is like trying to envision the year 1970 from the year 1920. Lots of airplanes, zeppelins and skyscrapers and searchlights, because searchlights were considered to be absolutely amazing technology in the year 1920.
What is coming in the next 5-30 years is going to be beyond anything that humans in the year 2018 can properly envision. That is partly because our minds in their current biological configuration, absent AI enhancement, simply cannot conceive of what the changes are going to be like.

Too late. The cat's out of the bag. Not only can we not stop or even slow the advance of our AI development, but it is clearly now in a point of acceleration wherein the rate of acceleration itself is accelerating. Our science, technology, even economies are inextricably dependent on the ever increasing speed of (narrow, for now) AI development.
This may seem alarming to you, but draw back to a universal overview, one far removed from the planet Earth and you will see this is a likely natural and normal "evolution" of the universe itself.

Progress on designing multi-generation interstellar asteroid ship (Me: BIG logical thinking error here) by izumi3682 in Futurology

In this case, the thriving community of space explorers who — unlike computers, AIs and robotics — need to LIVE. To eat, exercise, work, have fun, sleep, get sick, get well, get old, die and make new people in turn. Many of the ‘’people maintenance’’ functions we can imagine are really pretty easy to turn over to AI powered robotics.
Me: People on interstellar "asteroid ships"--"They're just like US!"
I don't think we are going to go on asteroid ships to the stars. In fact ultimately I don't think we are going to the stars at all. To me this concept smacks of the ancient Romans envisioning an olive tree one thousand feet high that can provide olive oil to the entire empire.

What crypto did for a young Latin American enthusiast.

So, I wanted to share my experience in the crypto world and what it did for me, this ended up being longer than expected, so, sorry for the long post, also sorry if there’s grammar failures.
There’s a TLDR at the end just in case.
At my 25’s was when I decided to jump on this train, although I had heard about bitcoin a while ago when it was “brand new” I did let the bad things that were said about it cloud my judgment, something that still happens nowadays. I wasn't smart enough to research about it and have my own vision of the future, even though that I consider myself a tech enthusiast, I didn't.
I took my first steps when the mining\ETH boom, overpriced GPUs and out of stocks everywhere… With all this hubbub, I decided get know what was all this about. I started to research, reading, watching videos, learning, watching charts, and non sleeping doing all that… One of the things that I discovered was that I could get crypto by mining with my Rx-480, this was not only a gaming piece of tech, it turned out to be an investment, I got it for $190 a few months before the mining boom. I didn’t saw this mining thing as a long run thing, it was just to make enough for upgrading my old AMD FX PC to something better, ended with a Ryzen-Polaris build a few months later. Mining with only one GPU, it took time, I did $400 a few months later, back at that time Bitcoin was $2500~$3000 dollars, only If I knew, today that would be thousands of dollars lol
In my country $400 US were $18,000 DOP, that’s half my monthly salary (Not much, but enough, for now) after reaching my goal for a new PC, I stopped mining, I wanted to preserve my GPU and enjoy it for a few years more. (which didn’t happen for long, sadly, it died at the beginning of December, I had to put back on duty my old HD5570 (Picture inside ) that I had lying around, I hope to return it to retirement soon, since a really nice guy from reddit offered me his old 650Ti after trying to help me with the RMA process, which is really difficult and expensive from here, almost like buying a new one... so that’s gonna be like a “after christmas” gift for me)
Back to the story... after reaching my goal, I was still fascinated by the crypto world, so many different currencies and tokens, all this technology behind it, a new form of economy that was about to hit the world, one where we all had a chance of getting something more from what we are allowed by governments and this monopoly ruled by fat greedy pigs that control everything for their own benefit.
I remember leaving some $20s distributed in BTC, ETH and LTC, the idea of investing on crypto was always on my head, even if I didn't have enough money for that, or even if that meant making some excuse to my girlfriend (now future wife) for not going out to the movies more than once in that month… And the next one too lol.
Got to save $100 in that month and bought BTC with my money for the first time. Which became small investments in many altcoins. Didn't sleep much many nights researching, learning and watching the market for a few nights, I even got to annoy my girlfriend because I “was always talking about bitcoin” she told me many times “If you want me to listen to you talking about that, talk me when you get a car out of it, then we talk, or at least show me when it becomes real money ” lol
After doing my “homework” my chosen altcoins where ETH, LTC, OMG, QTUM, GNT and GNOIS, sadly I didn't hold them long enough before getting all back to BTC. I managed to get another $100 to invest a month later, I was still reading and learning about almost every well mentioned altcoin. The ones that I decided to buy were XRP, IOTA, XLM, NEO, ARK, EOS, ADA and of course some ETH and LTC. Even though that I had the interest in getting a few more, like ETC, TRX, POWR, SUB, BCH, KMD, ICX and maybe a few others, money was not enough.
Time passes, a few months, where my $200 investment became almost $700, and the other $20 are almost $150 now, for a total of something around $850, which I’m cashing out, although I’m keeping 50 doge coins that someone on reddit gave me a few weeks back, lets hope it goes to the moon one day lol…
Putting things on perspective, those $850 are $41,000 DOP, a little more than my monthly salary.
This didn't made my a millionaire like some lucky folks out there, nor gave me a car or a house, not even close, but this money and my Christmas/Thirteenth salary is going to be a relief now that I’m almost getting married, both (me & my gf) moving out from parents, and waiting for a baby together, paying for the all the marriage fees, rings, security/tenancy rental deposit, some medical appointments for her due the pregnancy and maybe some Christmas gifts for our families, but also, this gave me knowledge.
I did learn a lot, I did socialize with many cool people on reddit and many telegram groups, also got to know this fascinating new world with many technologies that are changing the world and bringing with it a new economy that can beat the pigs and the monopoly under their control, one where they print all the money they want and have everything for their own benefit.
it's amazing what cryptocurrencies has done for so much people, changing so many lives, it didn't made me a millionaire, but others have, so many young kids that were curious enough to put some interest on something useful, so many persistent people that jumped into this long ago waiting for this to change their life or just to get some extra money because the salary wasn't enough. Crypto gave me a possibility, it gave me a little bit of freedom, it gave me a better Christmas in difficult but wonderful times ahead.
Good luck to you all, may the profits be with you all, make good investment, be smart, read, learn and win, not only money, because learning is winning. I hope you all reach your goals and maybe something more than that, some lambos or teslas and I hope to join you all again one day not too far, before the rocket reach the moon.
Merry Christmas for you crypto fellas.
TLDR. This is a story of how I started mining with 1 GPU, how it took me months to reach my first goal, still fascinated by the crypto world, I kept learning about it. months later managed to get some extra cash ($200) to invest in many altcoins and btc which made almost 400% it didn't made me a millionaire, not even close, but got some extra money to help me starting my new life (paying security/tenancy rental deposit for moving out with my future wife, fees for our civil marriage and some medical appointments due expecting a baby) I’m left with no GPU to mine, only 50 doge and the desire of coming back one day before the rocket lands on the moon... But also with a lot of knowledge about new tech and knowing that there’s a new type of economy coming, one that gives more hope and freedom, knowing that the world is about to change.
