I put in the 2 for a 50% change of a clash - is my maths OK? Now, Eddington's number purports (see Wiki for assumptions - hint - huge) to be the number of fundamental particles (protons + electrons, assuming that a neutron is made up of a proton and an electron)) in the universe. So, you'd basically only have 2 * 136 (= 272) particles per SHA-256 hash to be available to store your data for a collision (+ overhead)? $\begingroup$ Consider that Eddington's number =136 * $2^ \approx 10^$.
This accounts for transaction batching, a technique used by exchanges where many payments are efficiently rolled into a single transaction. Since a Bitcoin
transaction may have many payment outputs, Binance in this chart we are tracking the cost per payment output.
Cancer-Away, CancerBgone, CancEthereum, and any other number of competitors would spring up. But since the formula is open and free, other companies quickly come out with their own cancer pills. Anybody can make a pill, and it costs only a few cents per dose.
Am I interpreting+calculating that right? $\begingroup$ So, given ~2600 universe-lifespans, all the bitcoin
miners together would have a good shot at finding data that shares a given SHA-256 hash?
NorthOne bank ranked Texas as one of the top states for women entrepreneurs and reported that the Lone Star state has 1.4 million women-owned businesses. Texas has a very high startup survival rate of nearly 80% .
Now imagine that the same person also created a product called Cancer-Pill using their own instructions, trade marked it, and Binance started selling it to the highest bidders. Imagine that someone had found a cure for cancer and posted the step-by-step instructions on how to make it online, freely available for anyone to use. I think we can all agree a cure for cancer is immensely valuable to society (blockchain may or may not be, we still have to see), however, how much is a Cancer-Pill worth?
The New York City Economic Development Corporation partnered with VCs to start the WE Venture fund for seed and Series A funding to women- and minority-owned enterprises. Even with the high taxes , high cost of real estate , and fierce competition, New York City is still home to more company headquarters than any other American city.
The author was evidently a software and math person. As the legend goes, in 2008 an anonymous developer published a white paper under the fake name Satoshi Nakamoto. But the paper also has some in-built ideology: the assumption that giving national governments the ability to monitor flows of money in the financial system and use it as a form of law enforcement is wrong.
Colorado companies, ranging from biotech firm Biodesix to software company Palantir, brought in $6.8 billion overall in VC funding in 2021. In the past decade, Denver’s population has grown 19% as business opportunities have increased.
Other women-founded companies in the state include Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company and Therese Tucker’s BlackLine. The company raised $125 million in Series C funding in January, which is being used to open a production plant in South Carolina. San Francisco-based MycoWorks makes vegan leather from fungus and BNB was co-founded by Sofia Wang.
With $2.57 billion in total VC investment, Virginia follows the national trend of investor interest in the software industry. (per data from Statista *). Virginia ranked 14th nationally in 2021 for the value of venture capital invested in the state. Crunchbase * reports 692 women-founded companies with headquarters in Virginia.
Given the unexpected and rapid rise in home values during the pandemic, a lot of people are concerned about a real estate bubble and a general housing market crash in 2022. The market is practically screaming "Yes, we are in a bubble, prepare for the POP!" The good news for foreclosure auction investors is, there will be more county foreclosure auctions in pop or not!
So you would have $136 * 2^$ particles to store each hash. Of course this is still wildly impractical! The birthday paradox (as per the answer) states that you only need $2^$ hashes for a 50% chance of a collision. $\begingroup$ @Vérace your maths isn't quite right.
When the potential sellers who for whatever reason haven’t entered the market yet start to sense they are going to miss selling at inflated levels, that is when things will turn ugly. When the first waft of "have we already the top" sentiments start to roll out, there will be a rush of inventory that will certainly go stale and need lowered prices to move.
Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
Blockchain is a computer protocol that allows two people (or machines) to do transactions (sometimes anonymously) even if they don’t trust each other or the network between them. It can have monetary applications or in sharing files, but it’s not some instant trillionaire magic.
