RE: Bitcoin in Space?

That is pretty interesting. It is a good idea if there was more need for it, but until things get sorted out there probably won't be. Be honest though, if they weren't sold out would you have bought one of them?

Sort:  

No, I wouldn't, but I am looking at getting Starlink (Elon Musk's Satellite Internet) as a backup, I just got the accepted letter last week.

I do know a lot of places in the world are not in the same position I am and some of these less typical solutions are life changing for them. There are many areas of the world where a $35 Raspberry Pi can change someone's life and give them the ability to use the Internet when they couldn't before.

Just because it isn't a good solution for you or me, doesn't mean it can't be life changing for someone else.

I signed up for the Starlink early access as well. I haven't heard back from them yet. It honestly seems a little expensive for the speed compared to what I am getting through Spectrum. I think they are going to have to fix that if they want it to be truly accessible to a large part of the population. Did you see my post a while ago about Helium? I thought of you when I was writing the post. It seemed like something you would find interesting.

Their target was 1Gbit @ 20ms ping, they have since upped it to 10Gbit. The beta is only 50-150MBps but it is likely going to get much faster.

Ah, okay, that makes more sense then. Even 1 Gbit would be pretty decent but if they can get it up to 10, that would be amazing. The 50 to 150 is what I saw and that is what caused my reservations.
