Fact: Break a cryptocurrency and another will rapidly replace it. Break SHA2 and an alternative such as Scrypt will fill the void.
Fact: China did not ban BTC. They chose to isolate it from the existing financial system . The driver for adoption of cryptocurrencies is intact.
Guess the name of the cat.
This coming from a virtual tape recorder that has been playing back a single tape loop since I first checked out this board more than three years ago. Beep beep... Tha tha thats aallll folks!
It is difficult to pay attention to the repetitive rambling of a Loony. Your posts are sometimes entertaining, but quite often very BORING.
I know not who you speak of, as I only have one aka. I don't recall you mentioning how many akas you have though? And what is this agenda you speak of Loony Indian? BS is easily deciphered, unlike cryptographic keys.
Hmmn.. I did not know that Satoshi Nakamoto is a zionist. OTOH, the NSA is a different story...
PS: It only takes one aka to rule the universe
No real news out that I could see. Is it related to the 50/200 day SMA golden cross that just happened?
Oops.. meant 'get TO put large amounts of stock'. It's difficult to know what the net effect will be, but this is a fairly high number of contracts for this stock.
The stockholder who bought the puts can either sell them back before expiry or choose to put the stock to the put seller at the strike price. If the put buyer does not own the stock, the puts will get exercised and he will have a net short stock position.
I think the strongest card AMD has now is their microserver technology... Seamicro fabric with ARMH CPU's (64 bit will do the trick). They can only ever hope to dent INTC in the server market. There are too many other players in the CPU space for tablets/phones. But in the end any success will depend heavily on what the foundries can deliver.
I agree. but I suspect quantum-based keys. are the exception to this. Or do you think there's an agency smart enough to break quantum physics?
And in any case, a breakdown of BTC if it was to occur, would likely lead to rapid migration to an alternate cryptocurrency like LTC that does not rely on SHA2. It's NOT going to be easy to eradicate this technology. Heck, you probably think the NSA can crack quantum based keys too huh...
Well it's far from clear that the NSA inserted a back door into the algorithm. There is no hard evidence to suggest this.
I sold my shares in AMD a long time ago after they bought out graphics maker ATI, but I still like to follow the firm...
AMD has been capturing gaming console business for many cycles now. On the PC gaming front, it's been a battle back and forth with NVDA, but AMD is probably going to win this round with the R9. The problem for AMD is that on the CPU front, they have a formidable competitor in INTC. AMD no longer has fab capability and INTC has better process tehcnology than any foundrry.
AMD made a very interesting acquisition in Seamicro that positions them to capture a decent chunk of the fat developing microserver space. They have also moved to design ARMH-based CPUs that could fit nicely with the Seamicro business.
Is all this enough to go long? Hard to say. INTC has also been able to step all over AMD. And NVDA is also a solid competitor.
