Four-fifths of all the bitcoins that will ever exist have already been mined.Every 210,000 blocks, the reward for mining a block is halved. The network started at 50 bitcoins per block, and on November 28, 2012, this figure halved for the first time to 25 bitcoins. Based on current trajectory, with 1,800 bitcoins created per day, BitcoinBlockHalf predicts the next halving will arrive on June 6, 2020, around two and a half years from now. With the halving system, it is believed that the last bitcoin won’t be mined until the year 2140. There’s trouble ahead for bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies because of being used to evade taxes or finance criminal organizations. Many countries are planning to ban the exchanges or bring them under legislative control. Time will tell. You will really have to weigh the costs now before you go mining.

I can;t go down to the local feed store and buy food for my animals, or pay for vet bills with it or buy a car or fencing for my sheep or purchase more sheep or buy a bigger place to live to farm more sheep. But I can use my sheep as trading stock to get what I need to continue raising sheep. So in a sense, my sheep are more valuable than bitcoin. lol. I love my sheep. Farming is where it's at folks. Without a farmer, you don't eat. But you have a lot of bitcoins. lol.

Talk about the ultimate battle between old money and new money. They’re laugh and new to it. Reminds me of reporters trying to grasp the concept of the Internet long ago. This cyber currency is taking on the ultimate cartel. The Federal Reserve

There is a lot of SHA256 hashing going on. It is too bad that solving SHA256 hashes does not have any real-world value.

If he manages to mine 50 BTC a day, at the current value he'll be mining $250,000,000 a year. .....meaning, when Bitcoin does hit $150,000 a coin, this man will have essentially made 2.5 billion dollars a year.

Bitcoin is cool but to complicated for me tbh. I swear I’m not a scam or anything like that but i can help you make 5 bucks. Just gottah get the cash app using my code. PVBQWPL cash.me/app/PVBQWPL It has to be the link with my code on it so you can make the $5. The app is basically just a new way to send money to your friends. Like a western union. The reason why I’m putting this here is because if you get the 5 for signing up i do to 😄 then you get your code and invite your friends and make 5 for each friend that joins with your code! I think that’s pretty cool haha.

Lol the reporter was asking if a day goes by when he doesn't mine any bitcoin? He definitely is not doing solo mining and must've been contributing hash to a pool where you get paid for the percentage of hash contributed to the reward generated by the pool.

What do trucks have to do with the topic? Trucks transfer hard goods. For the transfer of currency, bitcoin is not at all efficient.
