Vitalik Buterin: Ethereum Governance is Currently Underrated

In the most recent episode of Into the Ether, Vitalik Buterin appears to discuss all things Ethereum. One of the subjects that came up was the Ethereum governance model. Eric Conner asked Buterin about on-chain governance models, and his thoughts on how Ethereum’s governance stacks up against them. Current Governance Model Underrated: Vitalik Buterin Buterin says that the current Ethereum governance model works pretty well, considering the problems it has guided the protocol through. I actually think that Ethereum governance is under-rated at this point. Because it’s not something that we can attach a cool name to and advertise. And

Trump Scores Major Immigration Win in Supreme Court for Legal Detention

The U.S. Supreme Court has delivered a ruling on immigration reform that comes as a major victory to President Donald Trump. In a 5 – 4 decision announced on Tuesday, the court ruled that federal immigration authorities like U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) can legally detain immigrants who are awaiting deportation after completing prison sentences for criminal offenses. Before the ruling, the politically charged question hit public consciousness following the arrest of green card holder Mony Preap in a controversial case that hit the headlines across the country. Preap, who has resided

AOC And Her High-Minded, Hypocritical Rants Against Capitalism

Here we go again. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez continues to separate herself from moderate Democrats. She has now gone on the record with some more devastatingly narrow opinions on capitalism itself. Speaking at the South by Southwest Conference in Austin Texas, the idiot firebrand had the following thing to say about our economic model: “Capitalism is an ideology of capital – the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit…so to me capitalism is irredeemable.” Bold statements like this are precisely the sort of thing that gets AOC compared to Trump. She speaks in an

VanEck, the major New York City exchange-traded fund (ETF) provider with $47 billion worth of assets under management, remains confident that despite its fall from above $19,500 to its current mark near $4,000, “Bitcoin is not going away.” Bitcoin’s Hitting Singles – Not Home Runs In a note to investors Monday, the company’s Director for Digital Asset Strategy at VanEck, Gabor Gurbacs, said that rather than expecting a decisive breakthrough or big “home run” for cryptocurrencies in 2019, look for the industry to continue hitting a number of “singles” with incremental, but major hits: “With bitcoin falling from $19,500 to

XLM Surges 11% after IBM Partners 6 Global Banks to Use Stellar Blockchain

XLM, a cryptocurrency backed by Stellar Lumens, an open-source, decentralized payment protocol, surged as much as 11-percent in the past 24 hours. The upside move started brewing during the early European trading session on Monday, as the XLM moved from 0.108 to 0.118. The trend underwent a small correction, hinting a minor bull flag formation, that led the price to Tuesday morning low at $0.113. XLM retested the same level once again following an upside rejection during today’s European session. But overall, the cryptocurrency maintained its bullish bias on a two-day performance basis.

Facebook Alumni Winklevoss Twins Choose Crypto as Their Legacy

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are known for many things. Billionaire status. Taking on a social media Goliath. And as early bitcoin investors. If you ask them what they want their legacy to be, however, which is precisely what CNN Business did during SXSW 2019, the twins would unequivocally choose crypto. “Money is the oldest social network and arguably the strongest. Crypto is potentially the strongest network of value ever in the world and will continue to be so. So hopefully pioneers in that space to some extent,” said Cameron. "Money is the oldest social network and arguably the strongest. #Crypto

Solo mining with Coinminerz?

There is nobody mining at PPC at Coinminerz at the moment, so I thought it might have been decent way of trying to solo mine. I know it's perhaps not proper solo mining, but if I can throw enough at it, then with a bit of luck I might find a block of my own.

Has anyone tried it? I gave it a little shot with Nicehash for 10 minutes, but it was a little worrying the usual address plus optional worker name didn't show up and didn't show any stats like it usually does. If anyone has tried it, is this something to be concerned about if you don't see any stats, or will something only show up if you actually mine a block?

I'm thinking perhaps stats show up only if there are several miners, not just one. Or it didn't like my PPC address or something.

Thank you,
