If I can buy pizza with mincoin one day, I'll be very happy :D  (serious)

 

+1 :)


MinCoin, The #1 Crypto-Commodity

FPGA would be sick, but I'm both excited and weary of the day when scrypt ASIC miners appear in force, as SHA-256 ASICs exist today.  I personally know several people who each own between 1 and 16 ASICs mining at ~500-600 GH/s (for SHA-256).  While I agree that video cards are just not efficient enough, that's only true if ASICs exist.  As soon as 10 people are running ASICs for one coin at 25,000KH/s each, the network hash rate will be so high that the difficulty will increase radically, which is why right now is such an important time to be smart with your GPU scrypt mining and what coins you pick.

 

But game dev would be awesome as well.  Any computer dev actually.

I think Scrypt ASICs are pretty cost prohibitive, because even if the amount of design hours were the same as the SHA-256 ASIC, the amount of specialized RAM required to run Scrypt meaningfully is SUPER expensive lol.

 

I know of a few scrypt FPGAs in existence, but their owners have demonstrated worse performance on an FPGA than even a CPU. The bottlenecks are with RAM interfacing for sure, which is something that few people in the world have the time and skill to do right now.

 

However, I think that FPGAs are rapidly becoming the future to hard computation problems as their price drops many fold from just a few years ago. Much like solar panels, they are becoming the cheap, resource conscious way to solve problems.

 

Further, mining scrypt to me makes more sense than SHA-256. SHA is a dinosaur algorithm these days, so much so that Bitcoin has had to scale network difficulty to astronomical heights to compensate for how fast devices can hash it. It was also created by the Department of Defense...

 

Scrypt however relies on 1024 rounds of the scrambling function Salsa20, which was made by the literal computer wizard Dan J Bernstein. If anything, we should mine scrypt as a testament as to how good of a function Salsa20 is. It brings recognition to one of the best cryptographers in the world who is also actively promoting the public's interest in cryptography over the government's.

I hope to see services like paypal etc adopt it that would make bitcurrency viable as payment everywhere! 

 

 

If that happens world economy would be changed for ever :D

Hi Joseph,

 

    I would like to be able to by O'Reilly books.

    It would be nice to buy gourmet coffee.

 

    Train tickets, gasoline, paper products, shipping fees from UPS or FedEx or DHL.

    Electronic cigarette juice and accessories.

 

    Essentially, consumables for the win.

 

-Chicago
