Nice, more and more centralization (already 40% or the transactions are added by 2 entities), exactly what a currency needs ...

Posted in: Ethereum blockchain set for 'monumental' overhaul See in context

It is interesting to see the pro crypto go crazy putting out article after article with "in to future" " with advancements" etc...to try and say this form of currency inst far more costly in power than what they like to call "Fiat" but the reality is that today cryptocurrency uses fat more and if the supporters get their way then it will need 90% more as the entire population would be using it.

I am assuming we are talking about bitcoin here as ethereum is moving to POS. The number of users using BTC is not correlated to the need of electricity, BTC can work technically with a few home computers, greed and people with resources investing in expensive hardware wanting a share of the pie bring the electricity consumption high.

Yes, leave the fiat system for a crypto controlled by a single guy and with transactions validated by the rich. Sounds perfect.

@Eppee

Crypto currencies can be extremely useful when used as intended.

I am working with a guy in Belarus, crypto currencies allow me to continue our work relationship despite the political climate.

With all respect, this reads like you are circumventing sanctions which...is illegal. As such, I would not be too talkative about it in public...

What sanctions do I circumvent ? I am not a citizen from any countries applying those ... The fact is we previously used services from the USA and USD to do our transfers, which we cannot anymore, that's all, we're using another service.

I agree up to a point. I think there is a use for them, but as cash.I'm not so sure.

It may allow you to continue a work relationship despite the political climate, but then again, can't this person also just do a normal transfer of cash. The system is in place, it can be transferred in minutes. Eg WISE.

No, everything has been blocked, no international transfer, no wise, no PayPal, etc. They are all companies from the USA.

Crypto produces nothing, makes nothing and does nothing. Until it does, I’d stay out! Tulips, and pyramids come to mind.

some really are day dream believers through!

This is a European problem, not a Japanese problem! Drop all Russian sanctions immediately. It's an excellent chance for Japan to gain a very large economic advantage over Europe and USA.

Let's see when that happen up north.

for me, Abe will be remembered for wasting 100’s of millions of $$ on useless masks, that were purchased from his friends company.

Indeed, I am a bit confused by all of that, his assassination is awful but everyone is acting like he was Gandhi, truth is, he was an (ultra?) nationalist with quite a few dodgy scandals, everyone forgot the land deal already ?

There is a good way to maintain joint custody.

Try not to make the spouse run away

I am confused, have you even spent more than 2 weeks in Japan ?! This is common practice here, after the divorce the father doesn't see his kids anymore. It doesn't only happen to foreigners, lots of Japanese fathers face the same fate, most of them accept it but a few try to fight it.

MeiyouwentiToday 07:41 am JST

Let’s look at the case objectively. The woman and her children ran away from the wife-beating husband and would like to continue to live together in peace. At least the court granted the Frenchman the right to see his children. He needs to learn to be a good loser.

It seems that you have no clue of the case, for fact : "The woman claimed she suffered domestic violence while they lived together, but the court did not recognize that abuse occurred." Garanteed if the court in Japan didn't recognize abuse, there was no abuse.

IMHO, Europe just doesn't know how to do 'multiculturalism', Canada does it very well, even USA does multiculturalism better than Europe.

I am curious of the numbers of the Muslim immigrants and refugees in those countries, that could help the comparison.

TokyoLiving, the only people the sanctions are trying to influence are the oligarchs. They've had their yachts and overseas properties seized, they can no longer travel abroad, and now luxuries are becoming unavailable even within Russia. Sooner or later, they'll turn against Putin, and then he's toast.

I don't know, I am not convinced. When have economic sanctions already been effective in history? North Korea, Iran, ...?

Did some Hong Kong news media not mock the mainland of such practice to reduce the virus spread before?

5000 years of (generally) non-Han dominance on the Korean Peninsula tells you all you need to know about who Koreans on both sides of the border consider to be enemy number one.

And? Wouldn't you think it strange that a non-patriot would run for a political job in America? Did anyone here say anything about what Spain did to Catalan politicians? Or are HK and China the only places that should be criticized for patriotism?

What you're missing is that you don't understand their definition of "patriot", it is very different from your own. And it's done on purpose. Patriot in HK doesn't mean supporting your country, it means supporting CCP's authority without question. I would actually defend that the real patriots, the ones who love their country, to defend it, to want to administer it themselves are the anti CCP crowds. For HKers the CCP is foreign, coming in force in the country controlling their liberties.
