    Whoa this is an Intel add. Dayyum.
    They dont like them using that M1 silicon then i guess. hahahaha.
    Kinda feels like a very childish, i cant play with your toys so they's shit, kinda thing.
     
    Seriously management on those big companies is run by fucking children i tell yah. Such sadness there. I feel sorry for all of them.

    Yup. Most gamers have at most a 650W PSU, do not OC anything and run a 970 or 1060, that they would maybe like to exchange for a 3060 or 3070 after 5+ years. Ou and of course, they game on average 1-2h a day in contrast to 24/7 mining. This "gaming pollutes as well" is one of the worst arguments from the pro-mining folks here.

    For the yearly consumption of a gaming PC I named the fact that this would mean our household spends between 70%-90% of its overall energy on my gaming PC, which quite obviously complete bullshit.
    Absolutely not. The amount of people that even has 6h of spare time at their hand for gaming EACH DAY is tiny for quite obvious reasons. They are limited to a sub-sub-group of male adolsecents/young adults in a specific age bracket. And of course you will not find any reliable sources on this topic, so no I will not search for a source that comes up with some wild estimation that supports my views.
    I already quoted reports by BBC and others which demonstrate to bizarre amounts of energy spent on crypto in other mining discussions here and I am sick and tired of mining fanboys over and over pulling the same haltless arguments and having to repost the same sources over and over again.

    'We're not taking this video down because we would have to refund NiceHash for this project. We already knew the community backlash was going to happen, but we weighed it up beforehand and thought the small hit to our integrity was worth it. We know if we spin it towards single users and still condemn mining farms that we can technically stay on the right side, even though the impact of a million individual GPUs mining and a million GPUs in a mining farm has the exact same environmental impact'

    This is extremely wrong. Fiats 2020 carbon footprint is exponentially smaller than cryptocurrencies 2020 carbon footprint. Fiats 2020 ledger is exponentially larger than cryptocurrencies 2020 ledger. Cryptocurrency is BY DESIGN a wildly inefficient way to effect movement of wealth. If 100% of the worlds transactions were made with nation state issued currency, the financial system would play a negligible role in climate change. If 100% of the worlds transactions were processed on block chain we would almost certainly cross the climate tipping point in the next 24 months, and most of the earth would likely become incompatible with human existence.

    I'm curious to find out if the YT algorithm actually punishes them for this. As we learned in the past, losing subs, views and YT recommendation placement seem to be the only things LS fears.

    Hey I'm a big fan, but have never posted on the forums before. Just wanted to make an account to say cryptocurrency sucks and please don't promote it in the future. I work in cybersecurity and crypto causes us tons of headaches, between malicious miners and more importantly ransomware cryptocurrency enables sophisticated FINCRIME groups to sustain huge operations dedicated to making the internet less safe!

    Also despite being far less than 1% of the worlds transactions bitcoin alone had the same carbon footprint as New Zealand in 2020. It's a huge waste of energy, which is bad because we're rapidly approaching climate catastrophe! 

    Also if you look into the enthusiastic ideological "true believer" types in Silicon Valley that are dumping money into trying to make cryptocurrency viable they're all Peter Thiel neoreactionary types that are super interested in building up parallel institutions to the state so they can weaken democracy in the interest of strengthening "liberty (by which they mean the right to be taxed). It's really dark stuff!

    Since Linus' electricity and heating is done through hydropower, there is no issue in recommending heating your house with mining electricity for everyone around the globe, since no one gets their elecricity from non-renewable sources or has a grid that cannot handle a vastly increased load.

    Dracarris reacted to ion1 in Mine Crypto Before It's Too Late! (SPONSORED)   
    According to profit calculator my 2060S would make 120€ a month, after electricity costs about 105€, propably less if you undervolt and deduct gaming time and taxes. So like maybe a 50-80€ in the end which doesn't really change my life in any way.
     
    The heat in winter can make up for the electricity but in my experience even the heat from gaming gets trapped in my small room and just makes it uncomfortable, I don't see it worth the effort really even if you can justify the environmental impact and don't believe in components wearing out in use.

    Dracarris reacted to rand_althor_cometh in Thousands of criminal cases opened in Germany for buying Windows licenses over 3rd party reseller.   
    German law is so outdated. It's a software key it could easily be discounted 99.99%. And there could be a million reasons why there could be cheaper keys via second hand resellers. Heck, Microsoft's competitors give it away for free. It's not up to the buyer to know these things.

    For example: If I buy a million keys on discount, then my business goes bankrupt before I use them all, I would liquidate my keys for cheap via one of these key resellers. It's not like Microsoft is going to refund me. The buyer could imagine any such scenario. It's not their responsibility to know the inner workings of how Microsoft distributes keys.

    If it really says that then wtf.
    If it was to search those people that might be selling lots of keys, then understandable, but doing it for every one that buys it seems overkill.

    Afaik they also need the approval (search warrant) from a judge to conduct a home search. If a judge actually approves a home search because of this, then they obviously have no idea what this is even about...

    Dracarris got a reaction from LAwLz in Thousands of criminal cases opened in Germany for buying Windows licenses over 3rd party reseller.   
    Those keys were sold at nationwide-present supermarket chains (Edeka), like Walmart in the US for the density of stores (but a bit "higher" class supermarket). Honestly, if a retailer with this scale sells you sth, there is no freakin way you have to assume it is not legit. Not even mentioning that many people simply have absolutely no clue, what the "regular" price of Win10 is.
     
    Since MS gave Win10 away for completely free as Win7/8 upgrades for years, I was surprised to hear they even charge for it, and then shocked again when I heard that the prices are in the 3-digits. I assumed an OS is now a commodity (which makes money after it has been installed) that you get for free and maybe pay 10-20 for a phyiscal install medium.
     
    This is yet another showcase of how utterly bad protected German citizens are from large international corporations and how anti-consumer the whole law system is. Being criminally charged and having very fundamental rights infringed and ignored for cases with south of 300$ of possible damages - W T F. Knocking down a door should be the absolute exception, only done in cases where there is strong evidence for severe criminal acts. Knocking down a door because of a (possibly) stolen Windows key, this is pure insanity.

    Indeed I was really disappointed when he said that. Yes they are making money instead of sitting idle, but while consuming an enormous amount of energy.
     
    So his excuse: We have to anyway heat the office. With electricity - the most inefficient way to heat. Wow, @LinusTech, that was a real low.
