El Salvador Officially Starts Mining Bitcoin Using Power From an Actual Volcano

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, energy

The volcano bitcoin mining is also super eco-friendly: 3.


El Salvador has officially begun to mine Bitcoin using the power harnessed from an honest-to-god volcano — and the so-called “volcanode” has already made 0.00599179 bitcoin, or about $269, according to a tweet by president Nayib Bukele.

“We’re still testing and installing, but this is officially the first Bitcoin mining from the volcanode,” Bukele wrote.

Bitcoin ETFs should not exist

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cybercrime/malcode

Grayscale wants to convert the trust to an ETF, one that owns bitcoins rather than futures, to lose the discount. Which raises a question: why has the Securities and Exchange Commission approved a bitcoin futures ETF, and not yet a plain bitcoin ETF? Bitcoin is tricky enough. Adding futures compounds the trickiness.

I’m not sure what the answer to this is, but it seems to be that bitcoin scares the SEC, because God knows where it originates (in a server farm somewhere in China?), who holds most of it (cyberbaddies?), what it is used for (illegal activity?), or what risks it may entail (hacking? Fraud?). Bitcoin futures, by contrast, are created and traded within the confines of the CME, under the watchful eye of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, in the upstanding American city of Chicago.


And a few more words on margins.

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Elon Musk, space travel, sustainability

Commenting on Elon Musk’s Dogecoin fortune, one youtuber drew the billionaire CEO of SpaceX’s attention to an important issue.

Considered the richest man in the world, Elon Musk is a Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum enthusiast in the cryptocurrency market. According to Forbes Real Time Billionaires, his current fortune is estimated at $214 billion.

In addition to running SpaceX, Musk is still ahead of Tesla, a company that has registered a great growth in the market with its electric vehicles. But he is mostly following the future of DOGE, which is his favorite meme currency.

Creating Generative Art NFTs from Genomic Data

Posted by in categories: biological, biotech/medical, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, habitats, information science

In this post I outline my journey creating a dynamic NFT on the Ethereum blockchain with IPFS and discuss the possible use cases for scientific data. I do not cover algorithmic generation of static images (you should read Albert Sanchez Lafuente’s neat step-by-step for that) but instead demonstrate how I used Cytoscape.js, Anime.js and genomic feature data to dynamically generate visualizations/art at run time when NFTs are viewed from a browser. I will also not be providing an overview of Blockchain but I highly recommend reading Yifei Huang’s recent post: Why every data scientist should pay attention to crypto.

W h ile stuck home during the pandemic, I’m one of the 10 million that tried my hand at gardening on our little apartment balcony in Brooklyn. The Japanese cucumbers were a hit with our neighbors and the tomatoes were a hit with the squirrels but it was the peppers I enjoyed watching grow the most. This is what set the objective for my first NFT: create a depiction of a pepper that ripens over time.

How much of the depiction is visualization and how much is art? Well that’s in the eye of the beholder. When you spend your days scrutinizing data points, worshiping best practices and optimizing everything from memory usage to lunch orders it’s nice to take some artistic license and make something just because you like it, which is exactly what I’ve done here. The depiction is authentically generated from genomic data features but obviously this should not be viewed as any kind of serious biological analysis.

US links $5.2 billion worth of Bitcoin transactions to ransomware

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cybercrime/malcode, finance

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has identified roughly $5.2 billion worth of outgoing Bitcoin transactions likely tied to the top 10 most commonly reported ransomware variants.

FinCEN identified 177 CVC (convertible virtual currency) wallet addresses used for ransomware-related payments after analyzing 2,184 SARs (Suspicious Activity Reports) filed between January 1 2011, and June 30 2021, and reflecting $1.56 billion in suspicious activity.

Based on blockchain analysis of transactions tied to the 177 CVC wallets, FinCEN identified roughly $5.2 billion in outgoing BTC transactions potentially tied to ransomware payments.
