I study energy policy and climate at John’s Hopkins. I literally wrote a paper on the economic viability of nuclear reactors and how thorium molten-salt reactors could replace existing PWR. The problem is related to cost overruns, discount rates, and regulation. Even if a BTC mine was being powered by nuclear it wouldn’t come close to making most (modern) plants break even. Look up the Vogtl 1 and 2 power plant cost and you’ll see the problem. Nuclear will never be profitable in its current form - the whole industry needs a massive overhaul for it to work.
Thanks for the instant downvote. Good question. It depends on the activity. For normal rounds and routines we wear no additional protective clothing. No reason to, area radiation is equivalent to what a commercial flight crew sees. On high dose jobs you receive an area brief and are escorted by a radiation protection tech. Unless the area is contaminated, you wear no additional clothing. Contamination could mean water, dirt, airborne radiation. In a contaminated area you would wear full dress. The suit is not designed to block radiation, but to prevent contaminants from touching your personal clothing or skin. There are many administrative and engineered radiation protection measures in Nuke Plants. We’re heavily regulated. Failing to follow rad pro rules is also a federal crime, and could potentially get you fined. It’s taken very serious. P.S. this is at a BWR (boiling water reactor), where personnel areas have higher area radiation leveles compared to PWR (pressurized water reactors)
I held VET,XRP,TRON,PWR and ICX from 2017 until Dec 2020 and they’d mostly recovered to either a point close to what I purchased at, or a small profit. I converted them into BNB which then rocketed. The only one that I regret selling is VET as that also went up a lot. Is also held on to ETH and sold that for a small profit as I needed the funds.
So as far as the CPU mining realm there are only a few that I have dabbled in which consist of: ROI, PWR, FTC, ETN, XMY, UIS, LOKI, PASC, BCN, GNT Also mined VTC and RVN with my CPU as well, had to get that double dipping as much as possible. 😃 There are not as money coins now as there was before since a lot of them were really shitcoins, but some of them are still sticking around. Also some of those coins are dual mining such as RVN and VTC, but I don't know how much you will earn now with just a CPU or two. I would definitely say right now is not the time to get into the GPU mining scene with the shortage of cards and the insane marked up prices. The only people that are making profit at this point are the scalpers and resellers of cards.
hmm, maybe. Lets see the world get completely renewable first. Then finding a digital currency companies can easily use to transfer wealth between themselves as a way to purchase or sell electricity will make sense. PWR comes to mind and was designed for this exact purpose but I dont think it will sustain a large grid at the moment.
