Why would GMO Internet switch all mining capacity to $BTC from $BCH? Only ~$37,867 for one hour 51% $BCH attack? Does DARI ratio account for block maturation times? Nov fork? What could possibly happen with this $9B testnet? Sure is fun to watch! 😂 💩 https://t.co/2P5...

This is one reason why ASICs are a Good Thing: if a miner does happen to get >51% you at least want to make it expensive for them to attack the chain. If they attack and the coin crashes in value, ideally the miner shouldn't be able to just switch to another coin and keep ...

I always recommend @1stMiningRig's GPU rig tutorial; @BitsBeTrippin has fantastic resources as well. As for best build, it depends on budget (and availability which is less of a problem in a $crypto bear market). https://t.co/mo7YgAtwxB
I have never feared for the safety of anyone I have collaborated with on an interview.

For years, there was a misconception that miners were in control of Bitcoin's protocol rules; however, the failure of the 2x hard fork appears to have debunked this myth.
