Jul 17, 2019 by Paul White

I am a huge fan of Democratic Candidate Yang.  A real Tech guy that gets it,  But I am not such a fan of his $1000/month per person Freedom Dividend.  If he gets elected and actually gets this thing through the House and Senate ( unlikely ) here is what it would do to the economy.

Crypto Mining vs, ATT Stock Dividends

Sep 4, 2018 by Paul White

Over the holiday Weekend I got a chance to spend some quality time with family.  The topics ranged from cars, to investing.  On the investing topic I shared my thoughts on crypto, which is always a huge risk being most people not in crypto have a hard time getting their heads around the concept.  My Uncle was more for slow and steady investing using high value stocks that pay dividends.  He had a great advice, but ultimately the returns from componding Dividents from ATT Stock doesn't come anywhere close to crypto.  I decided to work the math to give an example.

The result is Bitcoins are now mined by only a handful of pools.  This brings increasing risk to the network, as all it takes is for a major player to be taken out and the bitcoin network would stall.

Bitcoin break even point now at 26 cents per KWH

Mar 26, 2018 by Paul White

As more time goes by the difficulty to mine bitcoin gets higher.  Difficulty ultimately determines how much electricity its going to take to mine a single Bitcoin.  Using WhatToMine.com's ASIC page I calculated that anyone with electricity that costs more than 26 cents per KWH is now spending more to mine, than they are earning.
