    Venezuela is doing it. So is Estonia. And now Berkeley, California, is considering its own government-backed initial coin offering. But this is a different beast from the ICO craze that’s gripped the crypto world in the last year or so, and a far cry from a petro-state’s Hail Mary attempt to save its foundering economy.

    Eh it still goes up and down by a few % every day so if you know your shit you can still make money.

    Doubt someone doing it on the way falls into that category though, mind.

    There are good reasons why local governments issuing bonds are hard.

    If Berkley is having trouble affording to buy an ambulance or community theatre, they're doing it wrong.

    I don’t think Berkeley has problem affording a community theater mate. Why should issuing small, Kickstarter type projects be hard for a city?

    Care to explain your logic?

    Yeah as the article says, the current system is geared toward multi billion dollar projects.. So if a local school needs say 4 new classrooms to teach their students more effectively, they are pretty much locked out because the funding is geared toward building a whole new school not improving the existing ones.

    Which is just

    Aside from that, there's some low-key panic this "goldmine" for users will go the way of one or two other similar communities that were recently struck down with the ban hammer.

    Admittedly tangential to Bitcoin, but there's also an 'issue' with people not being as privacy-protected in their transactions as they might think ans as usual it's mostly down to the thing between the chair and the computer.

    Separately, Otoy is also moving forward with a plan to use blockchain and peer-based technology to create a crowdsourced rendering engine that could make hundreds of thousands or millions of GPUs available to render images for customers. Those GPU owners would be paid in cryptocurrency, dubbed Render Token. You can now use the Render Token to render real work as part of beta testing for the platform.

    It's like they saw the retardation of kodakcoin and had a 10 minute brainstorm to make it a less terrible idea.

    So, there's a town in upstate NY with ridiculously cheap electricity, and they offer an even better deal to industries that move into the area. They were hoping for something that would bring jobs, and instead they got coinminers. It hasn't worked out the way they hoped, so they're banning new mining businesses until they come up with a solution.

    Plattsburgh Mayor Colin Read told Motherboard his city has the “cheapest electricity in the world” thanks to its close proximity to a hydroelectric dam. The national average for electricity costs is just over 10 cents per kilowatt-hour; in Plattsburgh, it’s just 4.5 cents. But the city decided to offer industrial operations an even better rate of 2 cents per kilowatt-hour. And then the miners came to town.
    Plattsburgh gets 104 megawatt-hours of electricity per month and if it exceeds its allotment more has to be purchased on the open market at a significant premium. In January, Plattsburgh used too much electricity and the bills for everyone in town rose, in some cases by $100 to $200. While this has been known to happen in the winter months, the state Public Service Commission (PSC) concluded that the average resident in Plattsburgh saw a $10 increase on their bill in January just because of two cryptocurrency companies. The largest operation, Coinmint, used about 10 percent of the city’s power in January and February.
