Reopening a power plant for blockchain mining, Motherboard on ASIC miners, Blockstack and Toshi, thoughts on the inevitable regulation, and why blockchain won't replace big tech right away

April 12 · Issue #60 · View online
😞 Bad news. A coal power plant in Australia is re-opening to provide services to blockchain miners.
⛏ Motherboard on ASIC miners.
📱 No one can underestimate the work that Blockstack and Toshi are doing to make Dapps more accessible for everyone.
🤯 This is one of the most pragmatic takes on cryptocurrency and its inevitable regulation I’ve read. Highly recommended.
😤 The decentralization and the elimination of trust expected out of blockchain tech, at its current state, won’t be enough to solve the problem caused by Facebook and other big, centralized tech companies. But the work is underway.
