    Path of Exile

    Has it been proven that annul orbs are unbiased random? I've had annul orbs brick my item every single attempt after ~15 tries and 3 times out of 4 it takes the life roll on items with 4-6 mods. I'm like 6 times in a row it's taken the life roll. This has to be struck by lightning level of...

    Is the converted damage mitigated by suppression? Scorgue maps doing elemental damage when shifting was not. If it is that's kind of sick

    Path of Exile

    From what I've read on the wiki, the math on armor and evasion force you to hard stack them otherwise they're near useless. Mixing both seems like a bad idea. I'm doing an evasive build and my tankiness went way up after getting a Watcher's Eye with 'chance to evade attack hits while affected...

    Path of Exile

    I've encountered some mobs that were immune to chaos damage and were unkillable to me. Not from a map mod though. Oddly they had 'vulnerable to chaos damage' on them. I assume it's a bug. I find these from expeditions, but may have found this in delve once as well. Is there a reason to do...

    Half my deaths are obvious. Generally those deaths are in 150+ scourge T16 maps. It's the other deaths I scratch my head over. Couple days ago I died after an apparent ice nova from a blue box. Can those hit that hard? I have 100% spell suppression with 53% mitigation. The corpse explosion...

    Multi-sig and timelocked contracts (both usable on BTC right now) kindof fixes this, although you need to somehow convince the robber that you cannot access your funds. Also see Casa | The Most Secure Storage for your Bitcoin

    No? I have a small amount of money in a credit union for my debit card; much more in Coinbase and the vast majority in Electrum+Exodus+Metamask wallets. Holding cash is for suckers. Rich people don't hold cash. Why do you think they're buying up anything and everything with the free money...

    SHIB's decimal place is entirely for psychology and is part of SHIB's scam. They want suckers to buy it instead of BTC because 'it's cheap'. Doge was the 'poor man's crypto' until a new poor man's crypto came along and now Doge holders have bags. Any idiot can make a ERC20 token leveraging...

    Bans provide a need for DeFi and decentralized tokens in the first place, so may end up increasing the value of the networks. Is this irony? China's bans are on exchanges, and holding tokens is still allowable. People will just find other ways to trade and indeed DeFi services are seeing an...

    'DeFi in name only' is true for many/most 'DeFi' projects but not all. Sovryn for example has a web site you can activate your wallet on and transact with like most places, but you don't need to use the website to interact with the contracts. If you have technical ability you can interact with...

    Not all countries tax capital gains. Some countries have tax law that isn't as ridiculously onerous as the United States. I wish they'd cancel all taxes except real estate property tax and slap large sales taxes on luxury goods/services and that's it. The government will appraise all land...

    Collectables were always a shit investment. The only collectables that are worth anything are the ones made from before anybody had any notion to save and preserve them. That's why they are rare, and that rarity is why they are valuable. When I was buying comic books in the 90s, they all had...

    NFTs are often compared to say, baseball cards and comic books. But collectable markets are often highly manipulated and rife with scams. Unopened video games are 'selling' for $1 million now, but it's a big scam with the auction house, appraiser, and sellers all colluding together. The crux...

    Children are self banking with crypto. Imagine these kids trying to use traditional banking services after paying with lightning and QR codes. "You mean I have to type all this shit in? What the fuck is a CVV2 number?" "The fuck is an overdraft fee? Why the hell can't it just immediately...

    Consider that sometimes decentralization offers HIGHER throughput than centralized systems. Torrents showcase this: if you're downloading from many users simultaneously, you can often get stuff faster than from a singular corporate source. Sia's decentralized storage download speeds are quite...

    ENS is doing shit that has been done elsewhere. (namecoin, namebase.io, Siacoin/skynet, Civic etc) It's not like they invented the idea of domains and identity on a blockchain. Granted they're probably the most adopted. Bitcoin's layer 1 mainchain intentionally focuses on being sound money...

    Coinbase doesn't trade Siacoin Decred or Monero either. They trade what's popular with little to no concern for what are actually interesting projects, apparently.

    Doge is all hype and memes and no substance. I think that is obvious. You can make a lot of money off of hype alone, and 'momentum trading' is a real thing that can work. But that's not for everyone. Get out early if you do that. If Vitalik and Elon come up with something technically...

    Elon was roundly mocked on twitter recently because he said during the B-Word conference that 'average people don't run nodes' with people posting pictures of their nodes. The entire point of limiting BTC's block space is so average people can run nodes. You can run a BTC node on a smartphone...
