Round 3-

[2:37] Ok let’s chat about mining today. Loads of people have made a ton of money when they started mining bitcoin. So firstly, what is mining and secondly is it still a thing that people still making money off it?
·       Mining is getting paid to verify transactions
·       Kind of like a jury that works to audit the blockchain
·       Every time it happens you get paid
·       In terms of profitability, there are loads of calculators available, it’s profitable, that’s why people do it
·       New tech called Burst maps the free space on you hard drive & it’s eco friendly
·       There is a big difference between mining and minting, in minting you put down your own coins as proof of stake so you won’t do false verifications

[8:8] With the increased computing power and complexity of the transactions that are being verified, what happens if there are not enough miners verifying transactions?
·       If that happens to Bitcoin they will need to change to a proof of stake system
·       There should be such mass adoption that your wallet should automatically do it, but at this point the tech is not developed right now

[9:21] So mining is verifying transactions, what about Raiblocks, from what I understand there is no need to verify transactions? How does Raiblocks differ?
·       The transaction is being verified but it’s happening very quickly
·       Tech is new and difficult to explain
·       The lattice structure allows the transaction to verify much faster
[14:55] What would be some of the next steps someone could take to start investing in crypto? What coins do you currently hold?
·       Etherlend
·       CosCoin
·       Stellar Lumen
·       Ripple
·       Kucoin Shares
·       Vibe
·       Sonum
·       Neo
·       Funfare
·       Doubtem
·       Steam
·       Burst
·       Etc. J

[18:16] Cryptocurrencies- the word crypto means encrypted and secure. Let’s chat about security of cryptocurrency, what would you recommend?
·       Plan to hold in the long run, it’s a much better return
·       Buy an external wallet, make sure it’s not second hand
·       You can back it up and be very safe
·       Don’t be lazy and leave it on the exchange
·       2FA, Google Authenticator etc.
