Rolf presenting at Texas Bitcoin Conference on ZenCash October 29, 2017
In this video I am presenting on ZenCash at the Texas Bitcoin Conference. It was a packed room of about 150 people. The presentation went a little well, although I rushed through the second half due to time limits.
I had a great time talking, and made the major points I was trying to make, but could have done better. I will do better next time.
What happened…I was scheduled to speak from 11 to 11:30, so thought I had 30 minutes. I prepared 20 slides, and started at a 30 minute pace. At the 10 minute mark the organizer (and founder of Factom), Paul Snow, told me I had 5 minutes left, because at the 15 minute mark I need to start taking questions. I sped up, and he wanted to take questions at the 15 minute mark, but allowed me to go to the 20 minute mark, but did not allow questions afterward.
If you look at the rest of the Texas Bitcoin Conference, mine is pretty much the shortest one. One of the AV guys told me afterwards that he thought mine was one of the better ones. I asked him why, and he told me that more people entered the room than left it during my presentation!
However, it was my fault for not asking explicitly how much time I had to talk. I will do that next time.

I understand your time restraints and appreciate any advice or time you may have. 404-391-8476

Hi Rolf, I just wanted to get your thoughts on the future of mining considering the growing interest in Proof of Stake. Do you see mining dying off? Would it be a bad idea to invest in mining hardware (i.e. is there a good chance of not being able to recoup the cost of the equipment before the crypto world fully adopts PoS? Would love your thoughts on this topic? Thanks in advance!

I have recently started some in home mining, and am learning a ton. This is a great resource, thanks for sharing. I have a questions about chip temperatures. I currently mine with ant miner d3’s and l3+’s. I mine in the Oklahoma, and it tends to get pretty hot here. I’m rating to plan my setup for the spring/summer and wanted to know is there a temp. range that you like to keep the chips within? I know running the chips hotter can shorten their life, but I don’t have any experience on what is safe and what will shorten miner life. I have heard so many different things, and I didn’t know what your experience has been? Thanks so much!
