  • Bitcoin Q&A: The 14nm limit, decentralization, and renewable-energy mining

    Keywords/phrases: Do you see the 14 nanometre limit of transistors as a good thing for decentralization? There's been an enormous increase in the hashing capacity of the Bitcoin network and now it's slammed into Moore's Wall. It's a very good thing because it extends the shelf-life of mining equipment from 2-3 months to almost 2 years. Until now, the determinant of success in mining was how many kilometres you were from the semiconductor fabrication lab and how fast you could hook it up to 50 megawatts of electricity. With a 2-year shelf-life, you can re-decentralize mining. Renewable energy with cycles of demand, using extra megawatt hours with low consumption that would be lost anyway to mine bitcoin. Bitcoin is a battery on a virtual blockchain.

Japanese Renewable Energy Provider Offers Low Flat-Rate Electricity for Crypto Miners Japanese renewable energy provider, Looop, has announced an electricity plan aimed at reducing costs for bitcoin and other cryptocurrency miners. The plan charges a flat monthly fee for electricity usage of up to a certain level in the Tokyo Electric Power Company service area. Also read: Japan’s Largest Bitcoin Exchange Bitflyer Launches Bitcoin Visa Prepaid Card A Flat Electricity Rate for Crypto Miners Japanese Renewable Energy Provider Offers Low Flat-Rate Electricity for Crypto MinersLooop Co. Ltd is a Tokyo-based renewable energy provider that offers natural energy products and services as well as retail electricity services. The company “was born from the volunteer activity to set up photovoltaic power in the affected area of the Great East Japan Earthquake,” its website describes. The company began operations in March 2011 with the development of “a photovoltaic power plant that can be installed by ourselves.” Other products offered include solar, wind, biomass, hydroelectric, and geothermal power systems. Japanese Renewable Energy Provider Offers Low Flat-Rate Electricity for Crypto Miners One of Looop’s Power Kits. Following the liberalization of Japan’s retail power market in April 2016, Looop entered the retail electricity market. Over 55,000 Japanese households now use Looop’s electricity services, according to IT Media. The company recently announced a new electricity plan which is tailored to cryptocurrency miners in the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) service area. Looop calls it the “Mining Flat” rate plan. Customers can start applying for this new service this month. Japanese Renewable Energy Provider Offers Low Flat-Rate Electricity for Crypto MinersLooop explained that customers can sign up for a “1kW equivalent contract (10A or 1kVA)” which allows usage of up to 250kWh for a fixed monthly price of 6,170 yen. They can also sign up for multiple contracts. For example, a 3kW contract will allow them to use up to 750kWh. Overages are charged at the rate of 22 yen per 1kWh. According to an estimate by IT Media, the monthly cost of electricity for the 3kW contract is 16.9% less than what TEPCO would charge for a similar service. Japan Embracing Bitcoin Mining Japanese companies are increasingly embracing bitcoin mining, with a growing number of corporations entering the space. Last month, GMO Internet announced its bitcoin mining and ASIC chip manufacturing plans. The company is investing 10 billion yen to build its mining farm in Scandinavia. Japanese Renewable Energy Provider Offers Low Flat-Rate Electricity for Crypto MinersAnother Japanese conglomerate, DMM Group, announced in the same month that it “will operate a mass-scale, made-in-Japan quality mining farm whose operating size will be unmatched by any of the domestic operators.” According to Nikkei, DMM is also planning a 10 billion yen capital investment into its mining business. Last week, the publication also reported on two more large companies, SBI Holdings and Monex Group, starting their own bitcoin mining operations. Looop Director and President Shoichiro Nakamura emphasized how bitcoin mining uses a lot of electricity. He was quoted by IT Media as saying: The high cost of electricity is a bottleneck in Japan, which makes it difficult for mining to penetrate [the market]…I would like to support domestic mining companies by offering this pricing plan. Meanwhile, Japanese consumers can also pay their electricity bills using bitcoin. Energy retailer Remixpoint, the parent company of the bitcoin exchange Bitpoint, recently started accepting bitcoin payments for its low-voltage electricity services as well as offering discounts for customers paying with bitcoin. What do you think of this flat rate electricity plan for miners? Do you think more Japanese will start mining bitcoin? Let us know in the comments section below.

This is a teaching resource video used to demonstrate the difference in depth and moisture content of fossil fuels; especially the different forms of coal including coke with is tried to add to iron to make steel. I also mention that coal is the predominant fossil fuel mined (often in open cut mines) in Australia with the exception of crude oil (petroleum) in bass straight near Tasmania. This specifically addresses outcomes taught to year 9 high school science students as part of the Core Science 3 text book. I also mention the difference between renewable and non renewable resources. For more info see home tutoring sydney website: http://topoftheclass.com.au

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has issued an historic and far-reaching decision balancing conservation with renewable energy development across a vast swath of the California desert. It's called the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan, or DRECP, and will permanently protect significant areas of public lands in the California desert—including the Silurian Valley, Mayan Peak, and Chuckwalla Bench. The plan also identifies certain areas of public lands in the desert that will be available for potential renewable energy development. Read more about the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan at: http://pew.org/2cKRLUb *TRANSCRIPT* Text: The Bureau of Land Management has issued an historic and far-reaching decision balancing conservation with renewable energy development across a vast swath of the California desert. It’s called the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan, or DRECP. PATRICK DONNELLY of the Amargosa Conservancy: “The DRECP is considered by many as a solar development plan but it also has really substantial conservation provisions in it, specifically designating National Conservation Lands. The planners of the DRECP recognized what a unique area Amargosa is; almost every acre of public land in the Amargosa region is proposed as NCL. This will help protect our critical resources, in particular places like Tacopa Marsh that provide habitat for endangered species that thrive in our area. Conservation designations under the DRECP are the single most important conservation objective that we are pursuing here in the Amargosa. FRAZIER HANEY of the Mojave Desert Land Trust: “One of the conservation vehicles in the DRECP for public lands is to include those conserved lands inside of the National Conservation Lands. These are nationally significant lands across the West, that our national monuments, our wilderness areas, our wilderness study areas. The DRECP would include these treasured places inside of that system of national lands. The National Conservation Land designation in the DRECP would take advantage of this opportunity that we have to protect an entire ecosystem. And, if we get it right by protecting these conservation lands, these amazing places, we protect the wildlife corridor between the Mojave and the Sonoran populations of desert tortoise. We protect key corridors for the movement of bighorn sheep. We are protecting watersheds, we protect spring sources, that all the wildlife in the desert depend on. We are protecting some of the areas that we know are critical for wildlife and the survival of wildlife that don’t have an existing layer of protection right now. When we think about the DRECP and the National Conservation Lands, we are really finishing the work that was started in 1976 by Congress when they said that the California desert was easily scared and slowly heals. TEXT: Thank you, BLM, for directing future renewable energy projects to less sensitive areas while conserving wild places and protecting the desert’s iconic wildlife. We look forward to you ensuring these protected areas are also made off-limits to industrial mining.

After high school, West Virginian Chris Farley went to work in the coal mines. At first, it provided a decent living, but it soon became a precarious existence, as mines would frequently close. Now, instead of removing mountaintops, Farley helps bring the land back to life, transforming former coal mines into farms. Farley works for Refresh Appalachia, a project of Coalfield Development that provides opportunities to former coal miners in agriculture, entrepreneurship, renewable energy and other areas. Together with his trusty chickens, pigs, and a dedicated crew of hard-working farmers, Farley is part of a movement that’s helping rebuild the land. This Great Big Story was made in partnership with “From the Ashes." The film airs on National Geographic Channel on June 25 at 9pm EST/8 pm Central.
