This is a huge consideration imo when thinking about the likelihood for crypto to drop another 95%. Is it even financially possible when there are so many apps and platforms that allow people to stake their holdings?
staking is great because its good for the functionality of blockchain and just as good for investors. Passive income, rewards and incentivising the right to hold and keep crypto projects long term.
This idea alone has me convinced 2021 will be nothing like any other bull run. And that crypto is not only here to stay but here to thrive.
Not ‘financially independently’ advice or anything. My thoughts on why this time could, after all, actually be different.
Honestly Commanders, it’s not looking too good for ADVENT right now.
They went from the AVATAR project launching in ten days, having a Chosen Hunter on the cusp of maxed out knowledge, and three Alien rulers to half a bar full, no Chosen left, and the Archon king having about 10 hp left in like a month.
The avatar project lost a facility and was hit with a lot of sabotage in quick succession. The facility was destroyed in 6 turns. (Thanks, Dragunova) and we didn’t face any (major) casualties. Bumps and bruises, but that’s it.
Then, chosen retaliation where the arcon king showed up. He had half his health left from my last two encounters with him. But now he’s a pistol fire away from just dying and I’m actively hunting him down.
Up next, chosen stronghold. This was probably the hardest one so far. Not because enemies or the Hunter being difficult. No, not a single one of my troops took damage. It was hard because the Hunter seemed so chill. Like, it feels like the Hunter was going to be a potential recruit at some phase in the writing process. He talks a lot on how he doesn’t really like the Elders and really gasses the Commander up. Kind of a bummer he had to go out via absolute curbstomping. Oh well
Now, since the Chosen are all dead, the worst thing that can happen on a covert op is soldier wounded. Which isn’t really all that bad. A lot of covert ops got done, including some sabotage, obtaining a superior repeater (yeah boi!) and getting an absurd amount of cores.
So there you have it, folks. I’m going to destroy a ton of Avatar facilities, kill the alien rulers, and then take the fight to the heart. Plasmortar, over and out.
I have been gaming since the era of game boy, PS1 and early steam days and I’ve also been seeing VR before but it was very expensive to get one let alone be popular enough to have available anywhere.
Now with the quest 2, a whole new library of games have opened up to me and I have more than 5 years of VR gaming to catch up to.
I’ve tried oculus link but I’ve read the image quality is not 1:1 compared to PCVR. I just hope we can see dedicated PCVR headsets priced like current consoles.
Has anyone bought one of those advent calendar or similar packages where you get a skein each day of advent or Hannakah, etc? How was it? Do you recommend it?
Please excuse the question if it makes no sense, I've not slept well but had a thought about currency exchange when I went on holiday a few years ago.
I hated carrying around my holiday money and being able to use a card without crazy Forex fees would be cool!
So obviously this is hypothetical but what is the likely hood of being able to do this in the future; transfer a crypto into usdt/digital euro or a foreign currency on the exchange, and spend it on a debit card.
Will I have to purchase a prepaid debit card with crypto or will the advertised "crypto cards" allow direct purchases in any currency?
The stock market has been soaring for a while. With this comes many people saying that we are due for a market crash soon. Not debating the specifics of the why or the when. But suppose the stock market would crash in the same as in 2008. What would that mean for the crypto space?
Would the crypto market tank? Would demand from people escaping regular markets drive crypto prices up?
How would exchanges be affected? Especially public exchanges like coinbase.
Suppose this coincides with the end of the bull run as prices come crashing. Where should people put their money?
A stable coin sounds ideal, but they are all pegged to the dollar. Wouldn’t that be a bad idea if they dollar starts losing a lot of value? Could a sudden crash in the dollar affect stable coins ability to replicate it rate?
puts tinfoil hat on What should we do? Do we all put out money in Bitcoin and form a massive final exodus from fiat?
I don’t mean to spread FUD. Crypto is just growing to become an essential part of the investment strategy of many people. It is also certain that one day the market will crash again. Knowing that, it’s interesting to know how it will affect crypto. After all, the Bitcoin white paper was released exactly after the crash in 2008 wasn’t it?
At some point in the near future, Artificial Intelligence will be upon us. It will start off small, like other technologies, but like every other technology with great potential and usefulness, it will become widespread in no time. Right now, AI has advanced to the point where it could be used in virtually any situation at a small scale. I say this because of new developments such as GPT-3 which can understand human language input very well, and can output human language just the same. This has use in basic tasks such as writing (finishing and proofreading emails, code, books etc), art (music and visual), self-driving cars and more. Basically anything that can take voice input could use AI. Imagine telling your oven that you want to cook some meal and it automatically getting ready, making the process more efficient/convenient. Convenience is what technology has been developed for at least in recent times. Artificial intelligence could bring about an age of luxury or at least the illusion of this for a short time. It would also be very simple to integrate AI into many of the appliances that already use computers. The computers could potentially link to the cloud where more powerful computers run the AI programs. I can see this being used for things like social media as well with content moderation becoming an issue. There are quite a few problems that spring up from this, including ethical problems when macines begin to make choices for us. Will people think that machines know better? Will they know better? Given the recent obsession with data and data science, tech companies will probably try to use AI to bolster the systems they have already built, eventually being able to predict many things about human behavior (especially online behavior) if they aren't already able to do so. Will people welcome this? An AI would hardly need to breach privacy to make predictions about people. It could just use what they post publicly. This means people are already ok with this whether they like it or not as long as they sign the terms and conditions when posting online. This sort of thing is happening already and will permeate through everything in the coming years. I say 3 years and AI will be completely main stream. Some things about what I’ve previously mentioned are dangerous, but nothing compares to what will come next.
Artificial General Intelligence. The Singularity. This is when, apparently, even experts are blind to the future. An AI of this caliber would ad... keep reading on reddit ➡
They are phased out pretty quick, and I kinda had to sell a few to get supplies, so now I can't make the upgraded armor.
