egads man!Today 01:09 pm JST

It's been posited that hedge funds are shorting ETFs that own GameStop stock instead of shorting the stock itself. Other news has reported short-sellers of GME lost $818 million on Wednesday.

There is indeed a small group of well funded people short selling it via all the possible means since the beginning, they've been screwed but I think by some other well funded institutions, WallStreetBets is just anecdotal and has only brought the fight to the public lights.

It's really interesting that those moves are put on the back of a few small investors from an Internet forum, since the beginning this is definitely institutional money, a few guys must have some fun with the whole story.

In a democracy I assume the majority of citizens.

The current pro-China government won the election fair and square

What are you even talking about ?!

388 seats were pro dem, while 89 were pro Beijing during the last election, 2019.

Not trying to overturn elections their candidate lost fair and square. Can you comprehend the difference? 

This is a subjective analysis.

Who decides which government is legitimate and which is not?

Why would someone other than a hacker, cybercriminal, money launderer, organized crime gang, tax evader, speculator or drug gang want an untraceable, unregulated “currency”?

You know that the most criminally used currency is the USD right ?

Burning BushToday 08:25 am JST

Currently, around 78% of issued bitcoins are either lost or being held with very little intent to sell

So there's a latent supply of about 14 million coins that could hit the market at any moment and sink the whole thing.

There's a latent supply of 35000 tons or gold that could hit the market at any moment and sink the while thing.

Not quite sure why so many negatives were dished out to zichi and wanderlust, for telling the truth.

The apparent 16% reduction is power requirement does not offset the large increase in screen use time for 5G phones.

Yes, check out that stats.

New York City has more than 300,000 more single women between the age of 45-64 than men. It's a graveyard for over the hill ladies unfortunately.

This show has ruined so many young women's lives, it's an awful example for women if how to live their lives. They hit late 30's realise suddenly that the chances of finding a trustworthy loving partner is gone along with any hopes of kids and a family. Then loneliness in old age awaits. Sad.

Really ? There have been studies or something ?

I could care less what the author wants once they step out of their BMW or Mercedes while wearing their Armani Suit and demand they get more royalties for their work.

It's indeed really amazing. Is there actually any action against Boeing in the US, or something coming ?

Posted in: Japanese firms explore quantum cryptography to make stock trading secure See in context

AlternativeOpinionToday 11:04 am JST

Good to see companies and hopefully governments attempting to keep up with the possible dangers that quantum computing poses. All current cryptography is at threat of being broken by quantum computing and we need to start thinking next level cyber security now.

"Quantum cryptography" is not "post-quantum cryptography".

"Quantum cryptography" allows you to detect if the transmission has been listened by a 3rd party. "Post-quantum cryptography" is crypto protecting against quantum computers.

So basically quantum cryptography is useless as cryptography itself protect the transmission.
