Bitcoin just breached $60,000.- or €50.000,- and still going up.

GPU prices will most likely continue to climb then also.

Bitcoin uses a ridiculous amount of energy (the same as an entire country - I can't remember which, one of the scandinavian ones), and it's been shown that 2/3rds of that is fossil fuel energy. Anyone who believes in climate change shouldn't be using it.

As for the price, been there done that, it's just like stocks and shares, they fluctuate all the time, it's just gambling. The only way to definitely win is to do what Elon Musk did, put in a billion and a half then tell everyone about it. Oooh Musk knows what he's doing.... everyone buys, price goes up, he sells. Voila, a billion profit instantly.

You can't use GPUs on bitcoin, they're too slow, you need ASICS. GPUs work well on some altcoins though.

Jord, can't wait till the revenue agencies start looking at electricity bills to see if they think you might be mining coins and why haven't you reported the profits on your taxes.

The only thing they'll see is what I see as well and that's that I am paying too much for my energy, and getting 400-700 euros back on my annual account.

Well yay! Last night I felt really bad, with sneezing and a very painful cough. So this morning I called the corona test line and got a test at 4pm. Just got the results in, negative, as suspected. But really, they've upped their game that I got the results back within 8 hours. Last time I had a test it was 3 days!

So, the painful cough (still there at times) and other bad feelings, I think it's the vaccine's 'bad cells' having a fight with my immune system, a sort of corona light. No fever, but otherwise all the feelings of the flu.

Have a cold one on me. Maybe it will help take some of the aches away.

You're supposed to report the side-effects of the vaccines to your vaccination authority for them to pass it onto the maker of the vaccine.
I have a phone app to do that. Queries me every day.

At least you didn't get it from the dodgy man down Peckham market who was selling vaccines two pounds each, three for a pfizer.
