hmm I didn't realize that. still, it is a coin that has infinite supply. I'm not sure why its taking off, doesn't make sense to me. personally I still hope Congress passes laws against crypto mining - that being said I also hope Congress passes law that invests in RnD to find a new cement/infrastructure substitute. Cement is probably the number 1 offender of climate change, but it looks like none of it will happen as the system is sadly broken.

some clever people think it will crash or at least lose most of its purchasing power which is the same thing..

most important thing is to look at what rich people do. what do rich people do? they diversify between where they place their wealth - art, real estate, crypto, stocks, multiple passports and multiple fiat's...

we can't do that of course... lol but yeah it's very telling how much rich people trust any one form of wealth... if they did 100% they wouldn't diversify.

Posted this in another thread, but it applies here as well and it's worth a look.
Brian makes some good points... I agree with him, GPU prices might be about to take a down-turn, which can only be good for gamers and the PC market in general!

Maybe, time will tell. The part about yield returns is guaranteed to happen, there is only so much return that can happen. Etherium is not an infinite well, only so much of it can be mined..

23 grand but it earns 230 a day, and if price increases, that like roughly 90 days and you get your money back... and another 90 days you make like another 23k profit minus electricity. pretty nuts. i expect they will stay sold out as they are now lol

Like I was saying elsewhere, GPU's will get the job done(only ATM), but dedicated ASIC's are king.

I think the greatest sadness with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, was that they didn't utilize Folding At Home or other beneficial programs in their blockchain, so instead of useless math problems, each block would have to be submitted or fused with a problem from Folding At Home, hell we might have cured cancer by now with that kind of horsepower.

There are coins that attempt this but sadly they are not very profitable and thus pretty much flops.

Like I was saying elsewhere, GPU's will get the job done(only ATM), but dedicated ASIC's are king.
And another coin will be made for gpus.

We've been down that road before...

And this is why cash sitting in your bank account is losing buying power. You have to be adding to your savings at the same rate of inlfation to maintain...Or start investing because traditionally stock and especially now crypto are going to out pace inflation while also providing a return.

ETH at 3k! For Eth to overtake BTC in market share means that 1 eth will be $9k.

Depends. A new stronger variant of the virus could arrive tomorrow, and close everything again all year, crashing the artificially held up stock markets. I don't think that will happen, but at end of day nothing is safe. As far as that goes, I have so many medical issues, I honestly don't even care anymore what happens to any of it. (Typing this during a spinal flare up... so don't mind my negativity...) haha

You need to stop saying this all the time, and assume or act like you know what people are seek or trying to goal.
My job provides me more than I need (X2) for my (personal) life style. Yet I've invested in a few things. Can you assume or act like you know why I did this?

Take a step back and think first before you talk again about greed, fancy cars and houses. People are not alone in this world. They have families, kids, relatives, friends and all kinds of others around them.

This is a cryptocurrency thread on cryptocurrency section of the forum, and not a philosophical inquiry about human behavior.
It bothers me that you keep wondering in here and trying to sense others to your ideas and senses when clearly this is not the thread to do so.
