  1. “You know what, if you won the lottery – Yes, I’m gonna say it: 5% in Bitcoin,” Cramer said Thursday night on his Mad Money program. His advice came with a few caveats: Don’t buy it all at once, don’t buy it on the weekend. “Crypto could be incredibly volatile,” he said on a day when BTC tanked 13%.
  2. According to data fetched by CryptoQuant, a South Korea-based blockchain analytics firm, Bitcoin miners at Chinese mining firm F2pool started the massive sell-off that crashed the BTC/USD exchange rate by almost 20 percent in just less than 24 hours. CryptoQuant deduced the mining pool’s act as the main catalyst that slumped its price from $35,498 to $28,732 in just 24 hours. Meanwhile, New York-based cryptocurrency investment firm Grayscale Investments purchased more than $600 million worth of BTC this week, especially as the price was heading lower.

Since every node performs every computation, the overall speed of the distributed computer is not a function of the amount of computing power in the network but is actually equal to that of the slowest node in the network. That's not very interesting from a computer science perspective.

  • Quote: “It’s a new model for society we’ll be testing.”—Marc Lore, founder of Jet.com and Walmart e-commerce chief. He’s leaving to focus on building “a city of the future.” Did Henry Ford try this back in the day as well?
  • Google researchers have trained a large language model on 1.6 trillion parameters. GPT-3—one of the largest and most sophisticated language models ever—was trained on 175 billion.
  • Gemini is a US cryptocurrency exchange and custodian founded by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, who, thanks to The Social Network, need no introduction.
