Abstract. A purely peer-to-peer version of >>>>>>>>>>electronic cash<<<<<<< would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution. Digital signatures provide part of the solution, but the main benefits are lost if a trusted third party is still required to prevent double-spending. We propose a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network. The network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof-of-work. The longest chain not only serves as proof of the sequence of events witnessed, but proof that it came from the largest pool of CPU power. As long as a majority of CPU power is controlled by nodes that are not cooperating to attack the network, they'll generate the longest chain and outpace attackers. The network itself requires minimal structure. Messages are broadcast on a best effort basis, and nodes can leave and rejoin the network at will, accepting the longest proof-of-work chain as proof of what happened while they were gone. Does it say "money" or does it say "gold"?

Mentions:#CPU

I mean lets be honest, 3 mining companies controlling a combined 70%+ of the hashing rate is not an ideal situation no matter which way you look at it. The main thing stopping them colluding is simply that it would be far less profitable for them to do so, and people really like money... However unlikely it is it's still something people should be aware of, if for no other reason than to simply better understand how mining works. As Satoshi himself wrote: >The incentive may help encourage nodes to stay honest. If a greedy attacker is able to assemble more CPU power than all the honest nodes, he would have to choose between using it to defraud people by stealing back his payments, or using it to generate new coins. He ought to find it more profitable to play by the rules, such rules that favor him with more new coins than everyone else combined, than to undermine the system and the validity of his own wealth.

#Dogecoin Con-Arguments Below is a Dogecoin con-argument written by Chysce. > Dogecoin was [launched in 2013](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogecoin#:~:text=In%20addition%2C%20they%20wanted%20to,making%20the%20idea%20a%20reality) as a satirical response to the hype surrounding crypto. In 2015, its creators stepped away from the project. The aim of its creators was to develop a coin that would not be taken seriously by investors, however despite their intentions, Dogecoin still attracted a significant number of speculators. In fact, it became the world's largest memecoin during the first half of 2021, with its value rocketing over 15,000%. > > Like Bitcoin Dogecoin uses the proof-of-work to validate transactions. Doge is merge mined at the same time with litecoin. There are [speculations](https://cointelegraph.com/news/rumor-has-it-that-dogecoin-could-shift-to-proof-of-stake-what-does-that-mean-for-miners) that Doge will switch to Proof of Stake soon but there is no definitive news on this as of yet. > > **>> Doge has no intrinsic value** > > In the very essence Doge has no value. Apart from [sporadic use](https://coingate.com/blog/post/doge-support-much-wow) for online tipping or as a means of payment for some businesses, it does not have a unique use case or solve any real-world problems. Its value is solely based on its popularity. While this can produce exciting short-term gains it is not a viable strategy for long-term investing. > > **>> High Volatility** > > The price of Doge is highly volatile, making it a risky investment. It's price is mostly driven by the Elon Musk's tweets and memes. Nowadays there are even bots that market buy Doge whenever Elon tweets something about it. These pumps are short lived and can cause a big spike in liquidations for unprepared investors. Elon Musk also appears to have distanced himself from Dogecoin in recent times. He did not include Dogecoin as a payment option for Twitter, and he also [tweeted](https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1631720134636367872?lang=en) that he is more interested in AI than crypto as of late. > > **>> Unlimited supply** > > Unlike Bitcoin, Dogecoin has no hard cap [no hard cap](https://www.sofi.com/learn/content/will-dogecoin-ever-be-capped/) on the total supply, which means it could potentially be inflated indefinitely. It's current supply increase is [\~4% per year](https://www.analyticsinsight.net/heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-dogecoin-inflation/#:~:text=For%20anyone%20buying%20Dogecoin%20to,4%25%20in%20price%20each%20year). > > \>> **Lack of Development and future narratives** > > Dogecoin has a relatively small development team, and the project has not seen significant updates or improvements in recent years. Additionally very few people run full nodes. Finally there is no clear long-term narrative that could cause its wide adoption > > \>> **Security** > > Dogecoin's mining algorithm is less secure than others, making it more susceptible to 51% attacks. Doge uses a different mining algorithm than Bitcoin, called [Scrypt](https://learn.bybit.com/altcoins/how-to-mine-dogecoin/), which is generally considered less secure than Bitcoin's SHA-256 algorithm. [Scrypt was designed to be more memory-intensive](https://cryptobook.nakov.com/mac-and-key-derivation/scrypt), making it harder for ASIC miners to dominate the network and creating a more level playing field for CPU and GPU miners. However, this also makes it easier for attackers to launch 51% attacks. > > On top of that Doge has a much smaller mining community and less overall network hash rate than Bitcoin. This means that it could be more vulnerable to attacks from miners who control a large portion of the network's hashrate. > > And finally Doge's unlimited supply means that there is less of an incentive for miners to secure the network. ***** Would you like to learn more?

If we cannot trust the hardware cryptographic functions on a piece of silicon, then the idea of cryptocurrency completely falls apart unless we do all the calculations by hand and use fair dice that we built ourselves for random number generation. This is bordering on tinfoil-hat levels of paranoia, which I'm not against, but I think it's fair to assume that outside of specialized wallet hardware where there is a big incentive to distribute malicious chips, these components should largely behave as expected. Building a hardware wallet out of a general purpose SoC such as the ESP32 or an Intel/AMD CPU should mostly be fine.

If that were to happen, then the average time between blocks would decrease. A little or a lot, depending on how many miners that wizard could actually employ, I mean, it's not as if hardware that can do this new special math just appears suddenly - so presumably only a little at first, as only a few of these new miners would go online and the total hash rate would only increase a bit. Block time would decrease until the next difficulty adjustment. And after the adjustment we would be back to one-block-every-ten-minutes (on average). Presumably, that wizard would bring more of the new miners online and other miners would soon also start using this new wizardry. The hash rate would increase faster than before for a time (again causing blocks to be mined faster and difficulty to increase) until finally all miners use the new technology and everything evens out again. This would actually not be the first time, as it would be similar to what already happened when CPU mining was replaced by GPU mining which was then replaced by ASICS mining.

> Not really. It was being tested and a problem was identified. Further investigation into the issue discovered the potential backdoor. It really was coincidental. Andre Freund, the person who found it was not specifically testing xz at all, he wasn’t even doing any security testing or security audit either. He was running his usual automated PostgreSQL tests on bleeding edge Linux distributions just to make sure that nothing in the new distributions would break PostgreSQL (a database). He just wondered why a certain part of the tests was suddenly slower than before and investigated. At that point he had no idea that it had to do with xz at all, or a backdoor or anything like that. He said so himself: „I was doing some micro-benchmarking at the time, needed to quiesce the system to reduce noise. Saw sshd processes were using a surprising amount of CPU, despite immediately failing because of wrong usernames etc. Profiled sshd, showing lots of cpu time in liblzma, with perf unable to attribute it to a symbol. Got suspicious. Recalled that I had seen an odd valgrind complaint in automated testing of postgres, a few weeks earlier, after package updates. Really required a lot of coincidences.“

You were likely mining shitcoins on Nicehash which was paying you in BTC. As Amber\_Sam suggested, the best way to utilize those GPUs would be to sell them and buy BTC directly. Buying an ASIC is probably not going to be worth it for you if the electricity costs are not extremely low where you live. Running a node is great, but you won't be making money that way. You don't need GPUs either (an integrated one would do) . Mainly you just need a decently sized and fast SSD, some RAM and a basic CPU. Anyway. good luck to you.

Yeah. I was fucking around with BTC back then too. I was mining with CPU and then GPU when it became a thing. Spent most of it on onion sites. I try not to think about that. I most certainly would have sold it when my funds gained a couple thousand percent lol. I can’t imagine I would have had the foresight to hold onto all those coins until 2024. Back then it was magic internet money. Not the new gold. But in 2017… I was running a hosted mining business and I had a shit load of my own miners too. I knew.

Don’t use nicehash, it’s deceiving. First it doesn’t account for halving. Second, your share of the network hashrate decrease as each day passes. It’s the same reason you won’t make anything mining with a CPU. Go to https://smokinghopium.io to get general estimate of how much you could make ( and those are optimistic numbers). In your case it’s probably better to just buy BTC instead of mining.

75% BTC, 20% ETH, 5% XMR Monero is what bitcoin noobs think they bought. Other than most cryptocurrencies it’s actually untraceable and fungible. It has low fees and a very low inflation rate of 0.86%/year that will continue decreasing forever. Gold is currently at 2% and bitcoin at 1.72% so monero doesn’t have “infinite supply” like many believe. It also fixes ASIC centralization with CPU-only mining and has a dynamic blocksize that can scale with network demand. It has 10-20% of bitcoins transactions and about 30-50% of the number of bitcoin nodes yet only ~0.17% of bitcoins market cap; massive upside. Darknet markets have already abandoned bitcoin in favor of monero. They were the first users of bitcoin…

That is nonsense >Once the CPU effort has been expended to make it satisfy the proof-of-work, the block cannot be changed without redoing the work. As later blocks are chained after it, the work to change the block would include redoing all the blocks after it. A blockheader is the hash of the previous blockheader + nonce, where the blockheader is the outer layers of the merkle tree allowing you to look at a tx id and calculate it it's included in the tree. Therefore in terms of forging block it goes not matter if they are empty or have tx. It's the bruteforcing of the nonce that is the work.

In case of a “world emergency” where you have to survive in an adversarial environment, you’re probably best served with a stack of Monero. It’s untraceable, decentralized and people in adversarial environments are already using it today (e.g. darknet markets). It is mined with CPU so even if governments would want to target miners, they would be difficult to identify. It also has a tail emission to ensure network security long into the future while still having lower inflation than gold. Probably best to also get a position in bitcoin and gold as a hedge. Gold to use in case internet/electricity goes down.

From a technical perspective, that is Bitcoin's innovation. It solved what's known as the Byzantine Generals Problem by using Proof of Work. Satoshi gives a good explanation of what is the Byzantine Generals Problem and how proof of work solves it, in the cypherpunk mailing list where Bitcoin was first introduced to the world: https://www.metzdowd.com/pipermail/cryptography/2008-November/thread.html#14849 > James A. Donald wrote: > It is not sufficient that everyone knows X. We also > need everyone to know that everyone knows X, and that > everyone knows that everyone knows that everyone knows X > - which, as in the Byzantine Generals problem, is the > classic hard problem of distributed data processing. The proof-of-work chain is a solution to the Byzantine Generals' Problem. I'll try to rephrase it in that context. A number of Byzantine Generals each have a computer and want to attack the King's wi-fi by brute forcing the password, which they've learned is a certain number of characters in length. Once they stimulate the network to generate a packet, they must crack the password within a limited time to break in and erase the logs, otherwise they will be discovered and get in trouble. They only have enough CPU power to crack it fast enough if a majority of them attack at the same time. They don't particularly care when the attack will be, just that they all agree. It has been decided that anyone who feels like it will announce a time, and whatever time is heard first will be the official attack time. The problem is that the network is not instantaneous, and if two generals announce different attack times at close to the same time, some may hear one first and others hear the other first. They use a proof-of-work chain to solve the problem. Once each general receives whatever attack time he hears first, he sets his computer to solve an extremely difficult proof-of-work problem that includes the attack time in its hash. The proof-of-work is so difficult, it's expected to take 10 minutes of them all working at once before one of them finds a solution. Once one of the generals finds a proof-of-work, he broadcasts it to the network, and everyone changes their current proof-of-work computation to include that proof-of-work in the hash they're working on. If anyone was working on a different attack time, they switch to this one, because its proof-of-work chain is now longer. After two hours, one attack time should be hashed by a chain of 12 proofs-of-work. Every general, just by verifying the difficulty of the proof-of-work chain, can estimate how much parallel CPU power per hour was expended on it and see that it must have required the majority of the computers to produce that much proof-of-work in the allotted time. They had to all have seen it because the proof-of-work is proof that they worked on it. If the CPU power exhibited by the proof-of-work chain is sufficient to crack the password, they can safely attack at the agreed time. The proof-of-work chain is how all the synchronisation, distributed database and global view problems you've asked about are solved.

>but does it have to be transparent for everyone? No it doesn’t need to be this way. There are public distributed ledgers that don’t reveal transaction amounts as well as senders/receivers while still being completely verifiable. Monero is currently the most used privacy preserving blockchain. It has also made strides in CPU-only mining to help decentralization by being ASIC-resistant. Fees are also very low and the blocksize can automatically adapt based on demand and extra fees being offered. It is one of a few cryptocurrencies that are actually fungible and don’t have to deal with the concept of dirty coins.

Maxis have been wrong since they started existing, ie early days of alts. They said we only *need* bitcoin - but that isn't true because the crypto ecosystem fulfills hundreds of use cases that bitcoin can't touch. They advised a "bitcoin only" portfolio, when the reality is that alts are the easiest way to obtain more fiat and therefore, more bitcoin. They said shitcoins, smart contracts and nfts were scams, but in 2023 the bitcoin blockchain was subsidized entirely by inscription and shitcoin fees, demonstrating sustainable security for the first time ever. They said bitcoin can't be hard forked, no matter what. Then they learned of the 2106 bug and changed their minds. Actually, they're not sure yet. They said lightning would scale. It hasn't scaled or gained much traction, and lightning devs have said, verbatim, that lightning doesn't work in a high fee environment. They said mining would decentralize and align with the ethos "one CPU one vote". Mining has trended toward centralization and so has asic manufacturing. They worship scammers like max keiser and spit in the face of CORE DEVS who then quit. Obviously I could go on and on, the point is that maxis are idiots.

Bitcoin can function as long as 1 ASIC/CPU/GPU is mining. If the current global hash rate stayed the same it could function forever. The only thing needed for the network is to be large enough to make it unprofitable for 1 entity to have 51% of the global hash rate. At the current scale this is not possible. Then even if it did happen. Nodes can just invalidate and ban the corrupt third party from the network making everything they did useless.

What does research mean? Do you understand cryptography? Do you know how these projects work and what they set out to do? When I first started in alts I was reading home page descriptions and watching YouTube videos. Not really a great method. As my understanding of cryptography was next to none, the white papers didn't make sense or sounded like crypto business buzzwords. YouTube is just a shrillers paradise. If I were to redo it and give you advice I would have you understand these things: 1. Public Cryptography- Understand how encryption works with asymmetric key pairs. Encryption, decryption, signing, GPG, hashing (sha256, sha 512, etc). All this can be played with in GPG4win/Kleopatra. 2. Cryptographic primitives- how they are used in computer science to develop the CPU architecture. Using a CPUs instruction set (RISC) to encrypt and decrypt data. 3. Virtual machines- how VMs work in the crypto world. 4. How blockchains work- Not just a quick 15-20 min videos on YouTube. I'm talking about 2-3 hour long videos that go into developing a block chain. Ones that really go into the inner workings of a blockchain. Not the ones that have the voice over a infographic video with animations lol it's gotta be one dude on stage and his 3 hours of slide shows lol. With these things being understood, then you can dive into alts and understand their goals. From there you can make good decisions. The only thing is that most people in the crypto space are number go up people. This means good projects may go unnoticed and complete garbage and even scams will skyrocket. But at least now you can identify good ideas. Next will be trying to understand people which is the hardest part. People will invest in good projects but demand marketing if number doesn't go up when it literally makes no sense and drop them for scams or projects that don't even work lol so that in my opinion is luck. One last thing I would advise is pick your expertise. You can't monitor or understand the entire crypto world so pick something you're excited about and focus on that market. AI, gaming, L1s, L2s, interoperability, security, decentralization, etc. pick something like one of these and study it. Study it hard and then good luck.

Did he really spend thousands of dollars on mining? Back then, CPU mining was the name of the game. Say 200W to keep a regular desktop computer running. That's 1752 kWh per year. What was the cost of that? 200 USD? Depends on the location of course.

It is still a peer-to-peer electronic "currency" system (not cash, as "cash" is physical paper). I guess Satoshi didn't expected that Bitcoin would be so expensive to mine, because at the begining you were able to mine with a normal consumer oriented CPU (do old gamers remember the glorious Intel i5 2500K that mined 1 BTC per day?), so the fees were less than a cent. Now we have a **devaluation of all national currencies, inflation, increased costs in energy and specialization of the hardware**, which makes Bitcoin super expensive to mine increasing its price, beating the US dollar 70,000 to 1, something that I'm guessing was not expected by Satoshi (or anyone, would you believe it 15 years ago?). Anyway, we know for sure he expected more people to join in, so we can divide a Bitcoin in more parts than a single Satoshi (that means, we can add zeroes in front, 0.0000000000001).

the difficulty is adjusted often enough to keep the 10 minutes per block on average, yes. Otherwise the shift from CPU mining to GPU mining and the later shift from GPU to ASIC would have drastically decreased to time between blocks and increased the supply. As Nakamoto didn't intend to have "goldrushes" each time the mining hardware changes, the difficulty adapts roughly every week.

Bitcoin doesn't even prioritize the ability for users to verify the network, so why mimic it? ASICs dominate bitcoin mining. I would also argue Proof of Stake inherently takes away an independent user's ability to verify the network.

Just looking at their 4 options for mining Bitcoin I can 100% guarantee that this is a scam: \* CPU (5.000 GH/s) \* GPU (15.000 GH/s) \* ASIC (50.000 GH/s) \* AntMiner (150.000 GH/s) CPU mining hasn't been profitable for more than 10 years, and the hash rate would be a factor 10\^5 lower. The other ones don't make sense either. ASICs are many orders of magnitudes faster than CPUs and GPUs.

Ok fine. You presume that the mining reward becomes so low that it’s not worth it to mine. Do know the future? Do you have a Time Machine? If so, could you rent it to me cause I’ll use it for all kinds of investments beyond Bitcoin. Miners have always prioritized, are currently prioritizing, and will continue to prioritize higher fee tx’s. This is just market dynamics. You’re presuming that the mining industry looks the same decades from now. If it becomes less profitable to mine, then miners shut down and hashrate goes down. Perhaps hashrate lowers to the point that I can once again mine with a CPU. Would need to borrow that time machine tho to get optimistic about it. You presume the incentives of people to buy/sell. I don’t buy or sell btc because of the mining reward. I buy it because it is decentralized, immutable, and secure. You are correct in if demand decreases then the usd value of bitcoin decreases. But then how is the value of usd going so far given its current (and most likely perpetual) rate of inflation?!?! Does it even matter if usd value keeps evaporating? Lastly, there is a common expression that gets tossed around a lot in this sub. 1 BTC = 1 BTC. And although it is trite, it is actually a very significant concept both implicitly and explicitly. It took me a long time to really get it. You are following this sub, so you must see the value of what Bitcoin offers and you are on your own journey with it as well. I hope this has helped to further your understanding or to prompt you to seek out further understanding. And hit me up about that time machine.

#Dogecoin Con-Arguments Below is a Dogecoin con-argument written by Chysce. > Dogecoin was [launched in 2013](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogecoin#:~:text=In%20addition%2C%20they%20wanted%20to,making%20the%20idea%20a%20reality) as a satirical response to the hype surrounding crypto. In 2015, its creators stepped away from the project. The aim of its creators was to develop a coin that would not be taken seriously by investors, however despite their intentions, Dogecoin still attracted a significant number of speculators. In fact, it became the world's largest memecoin during the first half of 2021, with its value rocketing over 15,000%. > > Like Bitcoin Dogecoin uses the proof-of-work to validate transactions. Doge is merge mined at the same time with litecoin. There are [speculations](https://cointelegraph.com/news/rumor-has-it-that-dogecoin-could-shift-to-proof-of-stake-what-does-that-mean-for-miners) that Doge will switch to Proof of Stake soon but there is no definitive news on this as of yet. > > **>> Doge has no intrinsic value** > > In the very essence Doge has no value. Apart from [sporadic use](https://coingate.com/blog/post/doge-support-much-wow) for online tipping or as a means of payment for some businesses, it does not have a unique use case or solve any real-world problems. Its value is solely based on its popularity. While this can produce exciting short-term gains it is not a viable strategy for long-term investing. > > **>> High Volatility** > > The price of Doge is highly volatile, making it a risky investment. It's price is mostly driven by the Elon Musk's tweets and memes. Nowadays there are even bots that market buy Doge whenever Elon tweets something about it. These pumps are short lived and can cause a big spike in liquidations for unprepared investors. Elon Musk also appears to have distanced himself from Dogecoin in recent times. He did not include Dogecoin as a payment option for Twitter, and he also [tweeted](https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1631720134636367872?lang=en) that he is more interested in AI than crypto as of late. > > **>> Unlimited supply** > > Unlike Bitcoin, Dogecoin has no hard cap [no hard cap](https://www.sofi.com/learn/content/will-dogecoin-ever-be-capped/) on the total supply, which means it could potentially be inflated indefinitely.

Additionally very few people run full nodes. Finally there is no clear long-term narrative that could cause its wide adoption > > \>> **Security** > > Dogecoin's mining algorithm is less secure than others, making it more susceptible to 51% attacks. Doge uses a different mining algorithm than Bitcoin, called [Scrypt](https://learn.bybit.com/altcoins/how-to-mine-dogecoin/), which is generally considered less secure than Bitcoin's SHA-256 algorithm. [Scrypt was designed to be more memory-intensive](https://cryptobook.nakov.com/mac-and-key-derivation/scrypt), making it harder for ASIC miners to dominate the network and creating a more level playing field for CPU and GPU miners. However, this also makes it easier for attackers to launch 51% attacks. > > On top of that Doge has a much smaller mining community and less overall network hash rate than Bitcoin. This means that it could be more vulnerable to attacks from miners who control a large portion of the network's hashrate. > > And finally Doge's unlimited supply means that there is less of an incentive for miners to secure the network. ***** Would you like to learn more?

I am using Monero Ocean Pool currently, which a pooled cooperative of sorts. They have the ability to change what is being mined based on current crypto mining prices. When something becomes more profitable, they switch the pool members mining efforts. I get paid directly to my Monero wallet every day or two. I promise you won'ts get rich quick, but it is fun and you do end up with profit and you get paid directly in Monero. So, in a nutshell you download Mornero Wallet, which then downloads the entire blockchain to your hard drive (Large amount of data). Over 120GB. So, you are esentially synching, validating and running hashes againsta a local host of the block chain. Once you create a new wallet (DO NOT LOSE the Wallet name, passwords, etc. Write it all down. From there you download he correct version of XMRig software. You will insert your Monero wallet public Key into the XMRig .CFG file. That's how you get paid. When you initially run XMRig, it will stress test your machine and optimize it for best efficiency based on your hardware speed. If everything is configured correctly, you will start to automatically receive jobs from the pool, which your CPU will process and complete each job. You can choose to get paid for lower minimums than default if you like, which I opted in to. Depending on your hash rate, you will get paid every couple of days or more whenever you hit the payout minimum. The pool will send XMR to your wallet. I am running a raw hash rate of about 2k/sec, which isn't bad, but it's not 27k h/s, which the AMD EPYC 7742 64-Core Processor can achieve. To put it in prospective, the 7742 tricked out can generates up to $27/month. However, the average hash rate for the general public is about 500h/s. I am running actually a Intel (AMD is better) 8550 at 2000h/s. I'm using 6 of 12 threads and 8GB out of 40 GB in DDR4 ram. This computer is still quite usable, but I do stop mining if I am trading JIC. Go here to get started: https://moneroocean.stream/ Click on Help for the instructions. I'm no expert, but I will try to answer any questions that I can for you. It seems complicated, but in hindsite, it's not that bad. Get wallet, download XMRig, put your Wallet Public key in the config files, where it tells you to, and Run XMRig as adminitrator and everyting else including getting paid happens automatically.

“I wrote a Python script to iterate through the BIP39 wordlist with 2048 words, one missing seed word and one known BTC address created early in the wallet’s lifetime.

Again, I'm not interested in actually mining, I'm not asking for advice on what to do... I asked why can't I solo mine? What stops me from throwing a load of money at something that I'm never going to get back? Why can't I put myself into electrical bill debt waiting 10 years for my laptop to CPU mine a single block, solo? What stops me from doing that? Besides having more than one brain cell, anyway. Surely solo mining software exists, or to get back to my original question you ignored, is there a dedicated software requirement to assemble my own blocks and manually type in a guessed hash at random in my own time whenever I want? Or is the block assembling also carried out by the mining software?

You won't get rich from doing that but you should look into CPU mining. You can use MoneroOcean, it applies a profit switch, mining the highest paying CPU coins and paying the rewards in Monero.

I think what you’re trying to get at is can you solo mine? The answer is no. You have to interact with a mining pool. In theory, if such software exists, you could guess a string of zeros and ones and send it to the pool. Better to have your CPU, GPU, or ASIC guess the numbers and send those guesses to the pool. Those guesses represent the “hash” you are providing to the pool. In turn, you get your “cut” based on the amount of rash you provide, once the right number is found in the pool. But the pool assembles the blocks. The mining pool runs a block template in real-time adding and kicking out pending transactions to maximize the total amount of fees for that block, since they get the fees as well as the block reward.

If there's one thing Bitcoin is, it's money and I will concede to the bright eyed early Bitcoiners looking for things to buy with Bitcoin after reading "electronic cash" in the white paper, of which I was one, that it can be used as such and it was and it is. I was trying to ignore the quibbling over semantics and give OP the benefit of the doubt since it was clear what he meant wasn't really currency but more vaguely "the currency everybody uses everywhere including at the grocery store" . Bitcoin can be attempted to use a currency in the same way that cigarettes are by prisoners, salt by ancient Roman soldiers, beads, feathers, copper, silver, gold, etc. OP is arguing that cryptocurrencies will never be currency and then goes on to string together all the reasons it's not widely used as one today and why it won't likely be used as one lateer and even though he is wrong technically at the core of his argument is an intuition about something important about the future of Bitcoin and I tried to focus on that. Unfortunately, he revealed himself to be not an actual seeker of truth but just another idiot who hasn't done the homework. Yes you can use Bitcoin layer 1 as currency, even today, and even after widespread adoption as it becomes the ultimate global settlement layer that I surmise it will. It can but that will be a niche use, a rarity. The sidebar will stand, as it does even today, a nostalgic glimpse of the early days when we so badly wanted to believe in the peer to peer currency of the internet, obtainable by any regular person with a CPU, that pizzas were purchased, all manner of fun and frivolous things!

The difficulty for the block adjusts down every two weeks until the miners come back. Every time it adjusts down it will require less electricity to mine a single block, in theory, it could keep dropping so low that it becomes profitable to mine on a CPU. That would never happen, but that is how the system is designed. If after two weeks the blocks are being mined too slowly (because some miners have left), then the difficulty drops and it becomes cheaper for everyone to mine. It will keep doing this every two weeks until the blocks are being mined on schedule. The reverse is also true, if blocks are being mined too fast because there are too many miners, the difficulty increases after 2 weeks.

His original idea did not evolve around that: "In this paper, we propose a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer distributed timestamp server to generate computational proof of the chronological order of transactions." "We started with the usual framework of coins made from digital signatures, which provides strong control of ownership, but is incomplete without a way to prevent double-spending. To solve this, we proposed a peer-to-peer network using proof-of-work to record a public history of transactions that quickly becomes computationally impractical for an attacker to change if honest nodes control a majority of CPU power." Satoshi sought to create a system that proved money can exist in A, be moved to C, while erasing B from the alphabet entirely. How do you prove a coin exists in A before it gets to C? In order for a coin to be created it needs to be mined, so it goes into a wallet. It may never leave that wallet, and for that user that's a damn important fact you need to uphold. Therefore, the underlying blockchain is the most critical aspect of Bitcoin, with peer to peer being a necessary step to move it along.  Satoshi (is/was) not stupid. Read their forum posts, they were incredibly forward thinking. They asked for CPU's to be used instead of GPU's to give everyone a fighting chance at mining, but the system accelerated too damn fast, it was inevitable. But they never believed this would replace payment processors. A way to exchange? Surely, it's a given from peer to peer. Reread the genesis block; Satoshi wanted a storage for value to replace the banking system.

It's hard to say. The vast majority of Bitcoin users do not run a node. And as the years have rolled by the network that still runs nodes have become more knowledgable about Bitcoin. Not saying they've turned into coders just that they understand the nature of Bitcoin and their economic incentives as actors in the network. Now you as an actor in the network have learned the dangers of that and may be more cautious. Ive heard knowledgeable people on podcasts who happen to run full nodes say things like "I'm still running <some slightly older version>! Im good with Bitcoin like that I won't update unless I have some compelling reason" and "nodes will be able to 'vote' <by running a non updated version>'. You don't need to verify the software by looking at the code. (And probably when people say verify the software they mean to check it's hash and the code maintainers signature to ensure no hacker has messed with the file). if you feel confident that v26 is the Bitcoin you think it is (I can vouch for it personally), then let that be your reference point. The protocol you trust your monetary wealth on is v26 and below. That's your vote. Bitcoin is a different kind of software than you've come across before and you have to treat it a bit differently than a web server. It looks like software and it functions as software but a major aspect of Bitcoin is it's almost invisible, game-theoretic interplay with the human economy. As Satoshi said, "one CPU is one vote". So careful with your vote!

A few other things to point out: * Banano is a memeified fork (code fork, not a chain fork) of Nano, meaning it has most of Nano's benefits * Nearly instantaneous * Zero fees * Negligible energy usage * Massively scalable * No built-in mechanism for the rich to get richer (mining and staking profits) * The Kalium mobile wallet is one of the very best wallets in all of crypto, and makes for an outstanding P2P payment experience * I could see Banano becoming a very popular P2P payment platform while Nano fulfills the more "serious" B2C and B2B payment types of operations * Despite the usage of the term, there's no **actual** "mining" Banano. It has a fixed supply (like Nano), meaning all the BAN that will ever exist was created when it launched. Rather than actual mining, you're essentially being paid in BAN for contributing your compute (GPU/CPU) power to medical research (protein folding) via the Folding@Home app. The rewards for this are paid from funds in a specific address which were dedicated for this purpose from Banano's inception.

I felt the same way when I first learned of tail emission. It took awhile to understand why it had to be a necessary evil. The reason for tail emission is twofold. Monero has a lower barrier to entry for anyone to mine, all that is needed is a CPU, Bitcoin on the other hand started out as, one CPU one vote, as Satoshi intended in the whitepaper. Asics then came on to the market and CPU mining was made obselete. Hence a mining centralization of power arose where only the wealthy can afford to mine Bitcoin today, due to large datacenters being erected all over the world dedicated to Bitcoin mining. Moneros' hashing algorithm, RandomX, was designed to be an asic breaker, to keep the barrier to entry low for the common man to mine, limiting mining centralization of power.l by the wealthy. Tail emission ties into the lower barrier of entry to mining by incentivizing miners to secure the network without needing to be compensated by expensive transaction fees. Everyone knows that once the Bitcoin block reward drops lower and lower transaction fees will have to rise to subsidize the miners to continue securing the network/validating transactions. The trade off is a perpetual inflation asymptotically approaching 0%. This means as of today Moneros' inflation rate is ~.8%/year. Every year the inflation percentage drops lower and lower as supply increases infinitely approaching 0% inflation. It is only an infinite supply over infinite time, something that is hard for cryptonoobs to comprehend. So tail emission was implemented to keep transaction fees less than a penny and pereptually incentivize miners to secure the network thereby never having to increase transaction fees as a result while allowing any average Joe to turn on their CPU at home and be able to mine without having to be a wealthy person erecting mining farms to compete.

I don't see OP asking about CPU or GPU mining. \> with a puny single PC. You're making it sound like the big boys are using lots of PC's. Which is bull crap all the same. \> No. These days, mining BTC is pretty much only a game for mining corporations with access to huge resources and lots of electricity. Mining with 1000 ASICs gives you 1000x the BTC reward as mining with 1 ASIC. whooptidoo. That doesn't make it only a game for large miners.

Monero keeps me interested. It is the only crypto that still upholds the original vision of p2p electronic cash. You can spend it with complete privacy for not even a cent, not having to worry about tainted coins and chain analysis risk-scores. Everyone can mine it on their PC no need for an expensive ASIC; 1 CPU 1 Vote. The darknet has already ditched bitcoin in favor of monero. It is a tool that helps to fight back against government oppression, not just to make gains. I am here for the revolution.

And real effect has nothing to do with CPU power or majority of nodes - only with majority of transactions initiated through these nodes - and not just any transactions, but those that have real economic effect (basically, are related to buying/selling something).

The consensus will always reach equilibrium. You have to remember that Bitcoin can be mined on a simple CPU. ASICs are all the rage because it takes that much computing power to compete with all the other miners. Once those big miners leave, difficulty drops, allowing miners with less hash power to compete.

I run about 300 different miners and the program I use autoswitches to any of those 300 based on estimated payouts so it switches quite frequently.

I've noticed on PC the algoswitcher seems to like YespowerLTNCG for the highest CPU payouts over maybe the last 6 months. As I said, it is automatic and switches to anything. When I first started I was using xmrig, started making about 3x more $$ per device when I swtiched to an algoswitcher.

Target zergpool/zpool/ZergPoolCoins/ZPoolCoins as the pools to scrape profits out of.

You can mine Zephyr coin with Xmrig. That pays a lot more than mining Monero. Mining Zeph on a CPU has actually been more profitable than GPU mining.

There’s CPU mining, GPU mining, and ASIC mining. These are the three major methods. There’s others, but those are the most common. CPU mining is probably the easiest, as it will run on almost anything (even a phone). Look into Xmrig miner. This is software used to mine Monero. You should also check out Nicehash for more info on getting started with mining. Their software makes it pretty simple for a beginner.
