  1. I just read all your posts @CyberpunkWayne; your mind can apparently melt steel, can you teach me how to be that smart too?
  2. 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
  3. Would love that too!
  4. 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.
  5. 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)."

  7. Hope you're right. I like the name Silk Road 2.0!

  11. I've though about this a lot. Considering, and this is likely I believe: 1. That Ripple/XRP will remain valuable for at least years to come; 2. Bank failures cán happen (high debt, historically low interest rates (<- never ever happend before) in combination with monetary stimulus); I have a stash of physical gold / silver. For the purpose of converting it to Factom / Sia / XRP in case these cryptos will crumble along with a market crash. I see it as a piece of insurance. If you guys like to know more you might like this video series. The guy behind it is a bit of a permanent gold bull and he's great at coming up with spammy titles, but the content is awesome and he's got a real knack for explaining our monetary system and its implications:
