Mining Bitcoin

Throughout 2018, Bitcoin’s price has slowly fallen from the highs near $20,000 to roughly $4000 today. Opposite this massive decrease in price, though, is the hash rate on the Bitcoin network: it has mainly gone up in 2018, starting the year averaging less than 15 exahashes per second, now averaging in the 30-40 exahash range, with a peak in November of ~60 exahashes. An exahash? That's a billion gigahashes per second, or a billion billion -- that's 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 -- hashes per second. That's a lot of hashes.

Ethereum & ConsenSys —  A Tale of Resilience

Imagine you had US$5 billion. Just as a thought experiment, imagine that you had US$5 billion to do with as you pleased. What are the things you’d buy? Would you quit your job? Go on a lifetime holiday? Buy a new house? A plane? A yacht? A car? Seriously, close your eyes and imagine for just a few minutes, what you’d do with US$5 billion. Because late last year and towards the early months of this year, Consensys and Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin was worth about that much money. And according to Forbes, Lubin was the second-richest person in the cryptosphere, based largely on reports that he owned (personally) between 5% and 10% of all Ether in circulation, which at the time had a market value of US$100 billion and was trading around US$1,389.
