Mining Security and Operations

——Ivy Evans from HashRabbit

「The downside is there are risks associated with operating in unknown countries, especially if you’re not a local privy to the laws in that region. Things like unreliable electrical and internet infrastructure; corrupt governments, unpredictable weather outages or damage, and unruly landlords are just a few to mention.」

Investor Panel: Investing in Privacy Coins

在投资人的环节,Arianna and Rodolfo 介绍了自己基金中对于隐私货币的持仓量,非常关注隐私技术的进展。当然早期的隐私币也伴随着较高的风险,他们对于 Grin 的投资持谨慎乐观态度。

—— Arianna Simpson, Lily Liu, Rodolfo Gonzalez

Invest in Privacy coins is not like traditional Venture Capital, you need 5-10 years to exit. In Crypto, you can adjust your holding anytime.

  • Now privacy counts roughly as ⅓ of our portfolio
  • When trying to estimate the value of privacy coins, one approach is to use some proxy...like offshore banking
  • There are millions of potential drawbacks can be associated with investing in privacy coins… risks need to be assessed and they are at their very early stages

  • Grin isn't really investor friendly by design.

  • The winning privacy coin will be the one that gets the most real world adoption.
  • From a social perspective, there's a need for a privacy coin.
  • From an investment perspective, it seems that with BTC is assured to have value over time.
  • Privacy is a pretty attractive investment
  • Offshore banking funds might move into privacy coins.
  • Stability is important. How does crypto volatility affect usage?-Arianna says that Ethereum has enough to worry about without also worrying about privacy so stablecoins on it might not be great.
  • Arianna thinks that darknet markets are cool but not murder ones.
  • "Interesting shit comes out from illegal stuff."
  • Grin is exciting because of scalability. P2P aspect of Grin is cool too. And it's launch is cool/fair.

Risks:

  • How do you acquire Grin in the early day as an investor?
  • Inflation makes it not as tasty for early investors
