Ethviewer.live is the type of visual pages you can view for hours, you learn with the different things that are represented, and enjoy how they move.
Last weekend had the opportunity to discover this place with a group of people that were explaining me the details about:
How the transactions are validated,
how the blocks are completed,
how the nodes are connected and how they are mining.
why some blocks are discarded and the transactions moved to other blocks.
how the transactions with more gas are managed with more priority,
To me, to understand the dynamics of a block chain, this is now the best visual reference I know.
Ether is a fundamental cryptocurrency for operation of Ethereum, which thereby provides a public distributed ledger for transactions. It is used to pay for gas, a unit of computation used in transactions and other state transitions.
They do not describe how the calculate the numbers they publish.
They do not provide a graph with the evolution during the time they have measured it.
Do you think that flippening will happen?
The extended concept of flippeting is based on the market capital.
In June 2017 it was closed to happen:
After that Bitcoin became extremely popular and you perfectly know what happens between October and December 2017.
Now, May 2018 the situation is:
Do you think that the flippening effect will happen?
If so, when?
I have no clue, but if I have to do a bet I would say that it will happen in Q1 2019. Why? Because there are so many ICOs published with consistent companies behind investing. Not all will survive, but that volume will be the one that will incline the sclale to the other side.
There is another significant flippening that long term investors are looking for
and it is that the number of token-users overcomes the number of token-traders. This article explains very well all the key aspects that will enable some crypto-assets to become long term investment assets.
We are working on a contract renewal with a customer that is driving the process with clear goals and expectations. They want to renew just for 2 years and have a YoY savings of 6%.
We were requested to look into the current solutions, look for improvements and identify transition or transformation projects that enable a new contract with the 6% savings.
We have done the analysis and after that we have done some specific conclusions and a generic conclusion about the situation.
What is the typical cycle of CAPEX investment where you are looking for ROI?
5 Years contract.
Transition & transformations during the first 2 years.
Positive return in the fith year.
Consider basic calculation/benefits, I have not added any additional benefit as time to market, or other benefits.
In my analysis I have created simple scenarios:
Scenario 1: plain scenario, as baseline for comparison (I do not do anything).
Scenario 2: T&T with 10% on 5 years contract with small YoY reduction.
Scenario 3: T&T with 10% on 5 years contract with a more agressive YoY reduction.
When creating T&T programs with specific returns, you require some time to
T&T should not be more than 10% – 12% of the overall price of your solution.
In environments where automation is deployed and there are not other major angles to improve, a different approach is required (change of solution with a business case that requires more CAPEX and years to obtain ROI).
Hidden cost is an obstacle to be competitive.
In our case, it is mathematically not possible to propose a T&T project to recover the ROI is just 2 years (if you are not removing a clear major issue). The only available approach is to accelerate continuous improvement on the existing services.
ha escrito muchos libros sobre bolsa, este es el segundo que empiezo a leer y el primero que termino, el otro aún lo tengo a medias.
El libro me ha permitido aprender cosas básicas sobre el trading que no sabía, explicación de los indicadores básicos, una guía de como integrar todo y sobre todo unas explicaciones con algunas metáforas muy buenas que son fáciles de recordar.
Todo lo que leí hasta ahora estaba enfocado en trading sobre Forex y cryptomonedas, este está enfocado en stocks, lo cual, combinado con las explicaciones básicas de indicadores me ha resultado muy fructífero en estos momentos.
