Warren Buffett: Bitcoin is a 'real bubble'

“You can’t value bitcoin because it’s not a value-producing asset,” Buffett told MarketWatch. He said that it is impossible to say how far bitcoin’s value will rise, adding that there is a “real bubble in that sort of thing.”

Bitcoin revolution: Cryptocurrencies are the future of finance, claims LatiumX founder

"Crypto tokens such as bitcoin, dominated financial headlines in the past weeks, with steep spikes in value and growing mainstream appeal.

Last Wednesday alone, bitcoin shot past £5,937.43 ($7,800), after kicking off the year at less than £761.21 ($1,000) per token.

However bitcoin still proved to be a volatile token and risky investment when it dropped by 22 per cent this weekend.

But David Johnson, CEO and co-founder of new crypto platform Latium, is certain that given enough time, digital currencies will forever change how money is used.

He told Express.co.uk: "I think we are at the start of cryptocurrency revolution.""

Why did you put that in bold like it has some significance, when coming from the CEO of crypto coin?

Dafaq? There is another fork for me to somehow get out of that damn wallet. Ugh.

So many forks, and big chains. The ETH 1 is around 400GB

bGold & bCash forks look very interesting down here... might have to roll the dice again

How much time and money (in computing power) does it take to mine 1 full $B?

stolen from a mining site. talking about a titan xp being used.

Quote:
In short: don't.

The hardware comparison page on the (mostly outdated) Bitcoin wiki does not have information on the Titan XP card, but lists around 200 Mhash/s for the GTX 590. A GTX 590 has 1024 CUDA cores, while the Titan XP has 3840. Extrapolating using this, we can estimate the performance at around 750 Mhash/s.

At the current difficulty, that amount of hashrate will let you mine a block on average once per 135000 years. If you use pooled mining, you can get incremental payouts for shares (partial proof of work). You may earn 1 BTC around once per 10000 years, while paying around $2000000 in electricity costs during that time (at 10c/kWh).

So don't. GPU mining has been superseded by FPGA and ASIC mining since around 2013

IF you want to mine a form of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Gold looks like the only way to do it with common man computer parts. Using your GPU again on an algorithm that can't be mined by simple ASIC hardware that Bitcoin has devolved into using. The last time I mined Bitcoin was back in 2012 when it was much cheaper (and I should have just bought $1000 worth instead or something.) but even after mining for a few weeks (or about 2 months, I forget) I only had .147 of a BTC. Worth a nice $1100 right now, and another $220 out of Bitcoin Cash as I finally got it, but trying to mine now will net you diddly squat even in a pool. You could expect like $.00000000001 a week.

Wow, too bad you didn't mine + buy back then... $BTG should get quite a lot of people's attn who mine XMR, ETH etc. Might have to put some Radeons to work!

Lol. Mining anything except the coins that are specifically designed to be GPU mined, is a lost cause at this point.

Yes I should have kept mining back when. Stupid me. I wanted to go for a full 1BTC at least, and stopped short seeing how long it took to get .1 lol.

Still, even my little bit is closing in on $2K fast Can't complain about that.

Are you kidding?
I figured you guys were rolling with 1,000s of bit coins that you bought for $14 each.

That's what we should have done. I was mining when it was $12 and thought I wouldn't make enough to pay for the power usage. (full tilt 3930K + SLI 780's at the time eat some wattage).

Hind site is 20/20 at this point.

Its a bubble. I had a small client of mine asking if I coild buy it in his portfolio. He then showed me some fancy app/site tracking all the crypto coins in different currencies and his profit & loss per 'trade'

If this guy is playing with BTC, it is absolutely a bubble.

Sorry guys, not sustainable. If you make a quick buck good for you, just dont expect it to go to 100,000.

That's why I haven't been willing to put any sort of real money into it.

On the other hand, people said it was a bubble 4 years ago too.

It'll be interesting to see which big players will go go bust when BTC bubble pops (Hedge funds or banks)
