    This is assuming that they even ship these things and dont scam buyers like previous ASIC mining rig companies have done.

    I remember hearing a rumor that the ASIC company would use their machines for a while, then sell them when the difficulty increased and they had faster ASICs ready. Basically, the consumer never really had the latest, fastest ASIC.

    It's a co-dependent realm in that if the ASIC's generate more interest in Bitcoin, Bitcoin goes up, then the Alt-Coins follow and increase in value, so even if the ASIC's outperform the GPU's on a limited sub-set of coins, there are coins they don't cover, and so more GPU's are sold to mine those coins due to rising value - with no competition from the ASIC's.

    One rising tide lifts all boats. :)

    The 5nm ASIC's shows the die hards haven't given - or haven't gone broke yet, which is too bad.
    There is a time limit after which if you get an ASIC machine your time to break even is outside the power break even point of the machine - you are losing money to run it while you are still trying to pay for the sunk costs.

    Yup, that's another scam out of the many scammy things about cryptocurrency.

    Despite the scammy nature, I appreciated being able to send/receive ~$10,000 in seconds without involving a bank. Ironically, it was for the sale of mining rigs. I sold my rigs at a solid markup just before the crash of 2018.

    So cryptocurrency is good for getting rid of cryptocurrency? ;)

    How long did it take to convert that $10k into hard currency?

    Cryptocurrency is a waste of human effort and natural resources, and pollutes the environment world-wide more than small countries.

    Cryptocurrency is also one of the best facilitators for speculation and related abuses - get rich quick scams among many others.

    Building a Digital "money" exchange makes sense leveraging off of a stable based existing currency - but we aren't there yet with the required reliability and scalability - even using blockchain as an inefficient implementation.

    Cryptocurrency as it's implemented will never get there, it's a haven for illicit activities and scam artists. The sad thing is Bitcoin and alt-coins are already traceable due to their design, it's not safe for illicit activities either. It's useless.

    At least that's how I've seen it all mature since the 90's.

    A complete re-thinking of the problem and new technology solutions need to be done.

    Or use existing debit card operations with a user connected distributed ledger, but why?

    One of the many benefits of using artificial intelligence (AI) is to help us view societal problems from a different perspective. While there's been much hubbub about how AI might be misused, we must not overlook the many ways AI can be used for good. Our global issues are complex, and AI provides us with a valuable tool to augment human efforts to come up with solutions to vexing problems. Here are 10 of the best ways artificial intelligence is used for good.
