So is it a thing you buy? Is there like a graphics card type module that one of those ASICs lives on that you put in a computer or rig? Or is it like a complete thing you buy? Like when one talks about a “workstation card” or “gaming card” those are two things that look the same but have different chipsets and firmware loaded onto them. They’re like gaming graphics cards in appearance and install procedure but you use them for CAD type stuff in practice. > As to how it impacts the demand for other computer equipment.. an ASIC should be far faster than a general purpose computer (GPU/CPU) and so basically outperforms them, usually to such a degree that there is little point in using anything else. I understand there are purpose built chips that are better at some tasks than others. But how does that relate to a GPU, RAM, CPU, or potato shortage, if at all? Does this mean when I shop for PC components, there’s also an ASIC card that people buy instead of a workstation card or gaming card (I know this is a wrong analogy)? Or do people bring up ASIC to mean they’re not even the same hardware whatsoever like Helium miners are basically Raspberry Pi’s and radio antennas?

The ones that did not have their brain cells fried by cercle jerks in gaming forums. I do mine with 3080 cards. Well, I did. Not worth it with ETH being that low. Each card had its thermal interface replaced, is underclocked and undervolted. They are in a rack that has external cooling, so their fans dont work much, and they have an additionak set of radiators on the backplate. The result is they work at \~220W, 54°C MCU, 80°C ram, and fan speed around 40-50%. Your gaming card still has those damn crappy pads and thermal paste. It will consume up to 350W on standard versions, clock 50% higher, and will end up throttling when the RAM reachs 105°C, which is already 15°C over what micron said was its maximum. So yeah, it IS better to buy a card from a miner than from a gamer, if it the pads have been changed. And no, it does not void warrantee. I had one changed.

Mentions:#RAM

Altough there are comparisons we have to remember that computers, even in the 80s, still felt like it had a real purpose to change the world. It was due to heavy cost and lack of RAM (due to cost) that throttled the full potential of computers via allowing software developers imagination to really explore. But, there were plenty of people (including kids) who could think of a hundred things that a computer would one day do to make our lives better. Crypto on the other hand doesn't really have a usecase that non-crypto can't already do and do better. Until crypto can truly find its killer app that cannot be easily duplicated by non-crypto solutions it will NEVER be in the category of computers of 1987.

Mentions:#RAM

The fact you think the developers turned off the blockchain and this post was upvoted says more about you're/this subreddits complete lack of understanding whats happened and your inability to do basic research. The blockchain came to a halt because of a RAM when it was receiving millions of transactions per second. The only way it restarted was when 80% of the validators came to consensus to reboot it. For the record theres over 1700 validators.

Mentions:#RAM

The highest end pi4 model will probably do the job. Haven't tried. I have old spare rackmount servers that are very beefy with loads of CPU and RAM and I'm using one to run these.

Mentions:#CPU#RAM

I meant bandwidth in a more broad term, not just networking. The amount of data going through the network was just too much for the nodes to handle, regardless if the bottleneck was RAM or elsewhere. Anyways, there's multiple factors at play when looking at TPS/performance. Fee structure, consensus mechanism, the execution layer, node software, network topology (ie. on Algorand we have relay nodes which are separate from participation nodes), finality, etc. You can't base the performance of one chain to another especially when they are completely different software stacks.

Mentions:#RAM

Yeah, that's kind of correct. Validators were drowned. I would argue though that it was memory (RAM) that brought them down due to excessive forking caused by the spam, not bandwidth necessarily, although it was probably a combination of both. But my point is another: Non-staked nodes on Solana are at their limits to what I would call usable. Running a personal node, although much cheaper than a validator or public RPC, is still already freaking expensive (at a real smart contract TPS of 500-1000 on Solana). They utilize almost 50GB of RAM, about 100-150 Mbps down/up of bandwidth and require beefy CPUs with a lot of cores. This is why I am extremely skeptical when someone says that some other monolithic network (as in not adding shards or L2 external throughput) says that it can do thousands more TPS. How? It would be prohibitively expensive even if the software allowed such performance. It's not like this other network can magically reduce bandwidth usage, IO operations or turn every byte into a bit while managing the same amount of data. Oh and one more thing, every network (from Solana to Eth to Algo) use the cheapest transaction possible when benchmarking and get ridiculous high numbers on perfectly setup testnets. I will never trust anything BUT the actual numbers from their mainnets.

Mentions:#RAM#RPC

> it's the global supply chain that's the main issue No, it isn't. None of the other PC components were affected anywhere remotely near to the extent GPUs were, and their supplies have been normal for a year and a half already. If "global supply chain" were the main issue, then why is it that you could buy CPUs, SSDs, RAM, motherboards, power supplies, cases, mice and keyboards, monitors, and speakers/headphones perfectly fine throughout the vast majority of the pandemic? What could it possibly be that affected the prices of GPUs specifically and nothing else, huh?

Hi, I spare you the traditional DO NOT TRUST people in the DM, since you seem experienced. For your problem, that is really unfortunate but do not destroy the seed phrase yet. There might be ways to recover this, and depending on the amount on it, it might make sense economically. * Did you use by any chances whirlpool desktop? If so, the keys could be somewhere in RAM or even unencrypted on the HDD. Although I'm not sure about this, its worth checking out. * How many words is your passphrase? Depending on the number it might be recoverable. You could try to bruteforce it by building a small GPU array and give it a shot. Finally I would strongly recommend to still keep the seed, you never know what technology will give us and what tools will be available years down the line, and the recovery could be suddenly doable.

tldr; With the ETH merge into PoS it is a good time to look into the alternative coins to mine. ETC is a continuation of the unaltered history of the original Ethereum chain and exists to preserve the principle of "Code is Law". Currently any GPU with a minimum of 4GB of dedicated video RAM can mine ETC. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article. As always, DYOR.*

Mate we've been talking about photonic computers since I was in seminar for my degree in CS back in 2015. They aren't around the corner any time soon, and frankly all my points still stand. You don't want your RAM far away, in an encrypted format, or recorded in any way.

The train station looks empty because there is blockspace for all reasonable transactions. A full platform in that visualization means the coin is no longer functioning as money. [This graph of a boring implementation detail should not have a reason to exist](https://jochen-hoenicke.de/queue/#BTC,24h,weight). It makes no sense to use your most expensive storage (RAM) to hold transactions: instead of just including them in a block. Flowee the Hub does not even have a mempool: instead storing pending transactions in a database, then tagging them with the block they are included in if confirmed. Also Bitcoin Cash has two major splits after the fork from BTC: creating BSV and XEC. I was able to trade both for BCH at about 1:1, so I am "up" 4x more than one would surmise from looking at the price chart alone. Litecoin has the same problems BTC does. It is only scaling through experimental hacks; instead of actually increasing the blocksize directly. LTC is essentially BTC's testnet these days.

If you're confused, pick 8 GB RAM for maximum performance. https://umbrel.com/#start click "How to install →" --- For the other questions, I would like to add. The blockchain is currently 467GB, and any 500GB SSD is not going to actually have 500GB space but more like 450GB. A 750GB SSD might work. Can you even get those? Is it worth it? Are you going to run the node for years? Just get 1TB. Yes I'm pretty sure the 16GB+ means any size above 16GB that the Raspberry Pi can handle. Which is probably all of them.

This is a misconception, you use HDDs for farming not SSDs, you can even use old HDDs given how light of a workload farming is, I have some that I bought used with literally more than 6000 hours powered-on and I've had then running non-stop for 10 months already without issues. You can use SSDs and/or RAM for plotting which is just needed once. I've never burned an SSD doing this and I've had to plot over half a petabyte of space already.

3DMark is good to test the GPU and CPU under load. But it's not a "complete test". Disks can have bad sectors, RAM can also have failures (although it's very rare), I had a PC have problems with booting because some electrical insulation problem, etc.. 3D Mark doesn't test for that. But you can't make the owner run 10 tests during 3 days, so I'd say test it with 3D Mark, check for sound, bad ports (I have a dead port in my GPU for example) and you can quickly check the health of the disks with CrystalDiskInfo.

Some absurd percentage of all minted solana are held by VCs and insiders, the initial distribution was fucking ridiculous. Only a tiny fraction of the total is in public hands and it's basically impossible to run your own Solana node because of the high equipment costs (Solana Labs recommends validators use a 12 core CPU and 128GB of RAM) you can't do it anyway because the nodes run at a loss and need to be subsidized by the Solana foundation and you have to be handpicked to receive the subsidization. All so they can claim XXXXXTPS which is entirely irrelevant as it frequently goes down for multiple hours at a time.

>a currency is a unit to measure value, it doesn't need to have value in itself. One of the three requisites to be considered a currency is to serve as a store of value, as in, the confetti you're holding may not have have value *as-is,* but it needs to represent some form of value, and this becomes it's intrinsic value simply by association. >trading and currencies have existed for thousands of years before the inflationary shitcoins we have now which are barely 100 years old and falling like flies. Agreed. There weren't 7.9 billion people back then though. Population growth is exponential, and one could argue asset backed currency can't scale that fast. >deflation doesn't meant people stop buying things they need While this does apply to basic neccesities, it doesn't hold that well to big expenses. Say you're renting but you want to buy a house, why would you pull the trigger when it'll cost less next year? Plus your rent will keep going down, so all in all you might as well not own property and be happy with it. Same could go for a vehicle, you'd just take public transport everywhere, it'd basically nullify the **desire to invest**, not the desire to fulfill basic human needs, that'd be idiotic. >lots of goods are deflationary, such as high-tech goods like computers And this lends itselftomy argument in last point, while the price of hardware decreases as it gets old, the means to produce said tech actually inflate (Think silicon, infrastructure, salaries, supply chains, marketing) , this also pushes companies to produce new exciting tech every year as to not dilute their profits. Every year you get a new CPU, a new RAM standard, a new GPU, a new phone, each 10 to 20% faster than last year's. This in turn pushes developers to take advantage of cutting edge tech as it becomes readily available, eventually pushing the bar higher and higher so that old hardware isn't really usable anymore and you **need** to upgrade. If they had no incentive to look for cheaper, more efficient, more powerful ways to produce we'd be stuck with last year's tech **forever,** and it wouldn't get cheaper, it'd just cost the same since there are no new shiny things that work better making it worth less. A deflationary model discourages innovation by making preserving the status quo viable. The wealthy would have no incentive to keep producing value, they can just sit back and do nothing and still be rich. Once basic necessities are covered there isn't any real driving-force behind innovation, which leads to stagnation. Yeah, those companies that produce basic shit would be incentivized into accounting for the growing population, but technology, the main sculpting tool of human society, would be basically non-existant. We might aswell revert back to being all farmers.

That's not how Cardano works... Think about it this way: What makes Arbitrum, Optimism, zkSync decentralized? Sure, anyone can run the server that aggregates transactions, but people ultimately don't run their server; they prefer to use the one deployed by the developers as a public service instead. ... So where's the decentralization? It's coming from the fact that transactions are settled on the main chain at some point and in some form. What I'm trying to tell you is that CARDANO DOES THE SAME THING; all this talk about Hydra, sidechains, etc., is about defining the best practices to that end, but the DEXes on Cardano today are just as decentralized (if not more so) than their Ethereum counterparts. Reason being, Cardano is more decentralized than Ethereum; you don't need a behemoth server (and 32 ETH to go with it) to validate transactions, you just need two CPU cores and 4-8GB of RAM (which runs you about $20-40/mo. on AWS or similar). That's why the DEXes, which all settle transactions on Cardano, are also decentralized; they derive the decentralization property from the main chain. Vectors like censorship and MEV, which you're describing, were addressed by these teams long before the DEXes were even deployed. TL;DR: The DEXes are decentralized because Cardano is decentralized; think of the batchers as like a Polygon to Ethereum (even though Polygon uses a closed set of validators, the whole thing is still decentralized up to the decentralization of ETH). I know you're not gonna try to understand any of this because your money is in ETH, so you're financially incentivized to regurgitate the bullshit that ETH maxis are feeding you, but I'll still leave the comment up to see how it ages in the next few years.

David Chaum invented cryptographic digital money in the 1980s. Follow all the citation links on his Wikipedia page Bitcoin's decentralization was not possible before 2007 due to the network, RAM, CPU and storage requirements of keeping thousands of separate, identical copies of the transaction ledger A small example: read the SPV section of Satoshi's white paper. It assumes a computer has enough RAM to store all the block headers in RAM. At the current block height, that's about 60MB of RAM. In the early 1990s, a PC with 32MB of RAM was a very expensive computer. Today, a $300 laptop has 4GB In a sense, Satoshi was a bit early. When he began coding in 2007, 4GB of RAM was rare on a laptop, and an expensive upgrade for an entry-level desktop

>Not so high hardware requirements 100 gb SSD ?? 16 gb RAM? Bro wake up, this is how they have fast tps on L1 and it's not good for decentralization. Contrast this with a project like Ergo that really cares about decentralization. You can run a node on a raspberry pi. But they don't stop there they're aiming to implement light nodes that can run on a smart phone. Scaling is for L2 not L1. Don't fall for VC hyped tps metrics.

Ironically It turned out to be a dead cat bounce at the time. I think prices dropped about a month after that email. But at the end of the day prices can go either way. I always covered my electric costs +10% so my buy in price was never at a loss as such. I mined on a Quad core water cooled, 4GB RAM, 2 X AMD 5870s rig from very early on so I saw the huge gains from the first bull run and took profit during that spike. So buying dips was never really an issue as such. But as we now know The dead cat did come back as robocat 3000 with rocket boosters so it ended well.

You don’t need enterprise grade servers to maintain most PoS nodes. I would say easier to count those that requires enterprise-grade than the opposite. When we say enterprise grade server it would be something of the size of Solana node. Most PoS are capable to run in 32 gb RAM kind of setting with reasonable amount of SSD. This is not that big a lot of home computers can easily be configured or even already has this kind of spec. Check below https://medium.com/simply-vc/setting-up-an-eth-2-0-validator-node-simply-staking-40b5f96a9e8d When you compare to bitcoin it is obvious that bitcoin is more “compact”, the transaction is simpler and then consider the fact that bitcoin has very low throughput compared to next generation chains. I mean it is a blockchain you are (for the timebeing) expected to store everything. The reason people chose AWS is not because the requirements are considered steep but more out of convenience. The cost of renting on AWS with that requirement with 100% uptime for 1-2 full years would easily cover for the hardware. The reason people go for AWS is because it is convenient for them, not because they want

https://xrpl.org/system-requirements.html - so I have a couple of gripes: I've worked at several PC hardware manufacturers before, including an SSD and RAM manufacturer. The XRP ledger seems *relatively* lightweight, but to maximize throughput they're leaning towards node operators having 64GB of RAM. The CPU seems reasonable though...

In a way it is. At least in my country. Miners were buying up all the GPUs, if you walked into an IT mall you would see shops with mining racks being built for sale. We also had a shortage on everything else as well like CPU's and RAM which increased the price overall for an entire PC for us. While following the bread trail a lot of people buying from scalpers were miners who at the time could RoI those GPUs easily back then. That caused scalpers prices to be at about 3-4x of MSRP.

Private - the IRS has a massive prize out for anyone who can decrypt the blockchain. They don't for any other crypto. That alone should tell you something about its value. It's what everyone thought bitcoin was at first: a genuinely private fungible token Decentralized - users add to the network by downloading the entire blockchain and running their own nodes. Anyone can do this, it's dummy easy and running a personal node adds an extra privacy layer. You can however connect to a public node remotely, usually run by a community member, if you dont wanna download a like 130gb file, you just lose that layer of privacy. CPU mining - If you have a computer, you can mine this coin. No need for pricey gpus or ASICs as randomx is optimized to run on the cpu, and is not worth mining on anything else. Furthermore, scaling up a mining operation gets extremely pricy to the point of it just not being worth it as instead of just a bunch of gpus linked together, you need the WHOLE setup: cpu, mobo, power supply, and RAM. This prevents a small number of people from hogging all the hashrate, decentralizing even mining. The GUI wallet has p2pool integration right in it now. No dev fee, open source pool mining right in the wallet gui (which also runs a private node) that pays out faster than most other pools. TOR - you can set up a node that you can access remotely with all the traffic routed through tor, adding ANOTHER privacy layer on top of this already impenetrable privacy onion lol. To me, XMR is end-game crypto. Ethereum has smart contracts and NFTs, XMR has privacy and fungibility. I truly don't see a need for any other crypto besides these two. Look at the XMR boards: we got eaten alive the last week, way worse than most others, and there was almost no panic posting whatsoever. People really believe in this tech. They aren't gambling, they're supporting a network they believe in.

First off, I'm assuming that by Bitcoin Mixing you ACTUALLY mean Coinjoining & Collaborative-Spending. Mixing is mostly considered to be illegal, and a form of money laundering. If that's what you actually want to do, I can't help you there at this time, and most "services" actually end up being scams. As such, I'll assume what you want is Coinjoining/Collaborative-Spending, which creates on-demand TXs from pools of BTC from multiple participants (in a nutshell), which gives you multiple benefits pertaining to TXing privacy, all on the basis of plausible deniability. From the client-side you have multiple privacy options such as those integrated into Samourai Wallet: \- Cahoots spending \- Stowaway spending \- Ricochet spending \- Stonewall Spending And more. These are easy to understand once you take a look, and even easier to use. From a Bitcoin Node point of view, you have Samourai's Whirlpool. You can either pair your mobile wallet via the desktop app to a third-party coordinator hosted by the Samourai Devs in which case the desktop app needs to remain open as it holds keys in RAM, OR you can pair your wallet via the desktop app to your BTC Node which can be run 24/7, headless. Either way, your keys are never shared to any third-party and the moment something turns off, fund access is lost. There are other coinjoin platforms, however I personally haven't looked much into these alternatives and either find them sketchy or more complicated. I'd saty away from any Wasabi services personally though. **Resources** **Samourai** Spending tools: [https://docs.samourai.io/en/spend-tools](https://docs.samourai.io/en/spend-tools) **Whirlpool** info: [https://www.samouraiwallet.com/whirlpool](https://www.samouraiwallet.com/whirlpool) [https://docs.samourai.io/en/whirlpool](https://docs.samourai.io/en/whirlpool) To setup Whirlpool with your Bitcoin node, I'd recommend **RoninDojo**: [https://ronindojo.io/en/roninui.html](https://ronindojo.io/en/roninui.html) It's fairly easy to swap over a Bitcoin Core node (using pretty much any major frontend or none) to RoninDojo. If this isn't something you want to do, if you use **Umbrel** I know they have an implementation of Dojo you can install, though I and others have had multiple problems with it in the past (and moved away), but worth a go. **mynodeBTC** also provides Dojo+Whirlpool, though I can't atest to their implementation. Good luck!

Likewise, the Solana validators with 500+ GB RAM continued working fine during this outage, so it is not “all” of the network that went down. It is just that the network as a whole became unusable with so little stake still online. So far, the Solana problems, while concerning, do not seem to be unfixable, and this project is just going for a little over a year now. If Bitcoin were to lose a majority of miners due to a bug in a widely used software, block times would go up like crazy. 90% offline -> block time ~2 hrs instead of 10 minutes, making the network similarly unusable. Agree though, that the complexity of Bitcoin is much lower, making it way less likely that a significant number of nodes crash simultaneously. While alternate implementations exist (also for Ethereum btw), they tend to have comparably low market shares.

From what I’ve read it wasn’t even a hardware change that fixed the issue. It was a firmware update. If you buy an older model of Trezor and you run the latest firmware you will be safe.

My was also slow but then I tweaked a bit and now its relatively fast. Block 0 to 600K in one day. Have pumped up the RAM of the VM to 16GB and set the bitcoin dbcache to 14GB. Works pretty good for initial sync. (Im not using a Raspberry) But if it gets interrupted incorrectly you have to start over from scratch. Because when all the block in RAM get lost it has to "roll forward" for... days... so much slower that starting from zero again. Had to tart over 2 times to figure out whats the problem. Set an infinity timeout in the systemd service file so the process can always shut down properly (Which can take 2 hours with that dbcache).
