  1. I get the impression that IOTA is trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist yet. It's like building an airbag in a time when the first Ford Model T still has to be build; you just don't know if its gonna fit. It's like first you have a problem and then you solve it. Not: make a solution and then find a fitting problem. Like in your home: are there any devices you would like to make a micropayment to or are there micropayments you'd like to make towards friends? I can't come up with any.
  2. I've tried, but I don't even know where to start to make them understand
  3. I'm in since early 2014, it's been a looong wait
  4. @Aziraphale213 do your own research on these coins and I'm curious about your conclusions :). I've quiet carefully researched them (that's what I like to believe at least). I've looked at every coin in the top 100 based on marketcap, visited their website, looked at their community, looked at their programmers and at their product. UBQ came up as the most promising coin to me. It's like a more stable version of ETH with a much lower marketcap and less distributed coins. I took a position in it like 10 days ago at 0.37 cents and look at its price now. Still very much upside potential I believe, but please do your own research.
  5. Haha, love the comparison with The Big Short
  6. I just read all your posts @CyberpunkWayne; your mind can apparently melt steel, can you teach me how to be that smart too?
  7. Very insightful! Thanks a lot, please post more often.
  8. Woohoo! I'm gonna keep an eye on the consensus slack chat and live stream tomorrow, gonna try to be the firs to announce any news
  9. Would love that too!
  10. For this reason I'm calculating the sia usage every day. From the 5th of May to today its actual usage increased from 21 TB to 25,55 TB. Still very very low (but by keeping track I'm hoping to see some parabolic take of in the coming months). If there are some services developed around SIA which makes entry easier it could all go pretty fast. Currently 1111 TB is available for hosting and 2,3 % is utilised. This is definitely a coin for the long run.
  11. I know that quit a lot of you are at least somewhat invested in Sia as well. I found this topic on their forum, if you haven't read it, its fascinating. Some small entrepreneurs are setting up quit a massive data center dedicated to hosting on SIA. You can follow their story here: https://forum.sia.tech/topic/887/1000-terabyte-100-host-array According to them: "... we have not been this excited since the late 90’s early 2000’s ( heyday of the Internet boom) I don't want to give the impression that we are going into this blind. We have been in the IT industry for nearly 20 years. We have had a few successfully ventures along with a few spectacular failures. The secrete to our relative success has been to go with our gut (after Adequate due diligence)."
  12. That *****, looks like it was the same address as used in this thread, have a look there:
