Billionaire VC Peter Thiel Discusses Satoshi’s Identity — Says Bitcoin Is the ‘Most Honest Market We Have’

According to reports, tech billionaire Peter Thiel — the co-founder of Paypal and Palantir — spoke about bitcoin at an event hosted in Miami. At the time, bitcoin had just surpassed its all-time price high and Thiel said “you’re supposed to just buy bitcoin” and added, “I feel like I’ve been underinvested in it.”

Peter Thiel Postulates Meeting Satoshi Nakamoto on a Beach in Anguilla

The tech investor Peter Thiel is a fan of bitcoin (BTC) and has explained this on a few occasions in the past. In mid-May, Palantir Technologies, the American big data software firm, revealed that the company would accept bitcoin for services and was also considering keeping the crypto asset on its balance sheet.

Bloomberg reported that the billionaire venture capitalist said bitcoin is an “already known” secret, speaking at a conference in Miami. In addition to this statement, Thiel reportedly said that he felt “underinvested” in bitcoin.

Furthermore, Thiel also discussed an early encounter with the founders of E-Gold Ltd., the defunct digital gold company. Thiel talked about a theory he has that he may have met Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, the day he met with the E-Gold team.

“My sort of theory on Satoshi’s identity was that Satoshi was on that beach in Anguilla,” Thiel is quoted as saying. “I met them on the beach in Anguilla in February of 2000. We were beginning the revolution against the central banks on the beach in Anguilla. We were going to make Paypal interoperable with E-Gold and blow up all the central banks.”

Thiel said there were around 200 people at that initial meeting. “Bitcoin was the answer to E-Gold, and Satoshi learned that you had to be anonymous and you had to not have a company,” Thiel said. “Even a company, even a corporate form was too governmentally linked,” the tech billionaire said.

Peter Thiel: ‘The Fact That Bitcoin Is at $60,000 Is an Extremely Hopeful Sign’

The Information published another set of statements from Thiel that stemmed from a separate event on Monday. The price rise of bitcoin, Theil said, was a clear indicator that the current political system today is fractured.

“I don’t know that you should put all your money into bitcoin at $60,000 a bitcoin right now,” Thiel said. “But surely the fact that it is at $60,000 is an extremely hopeful sign. It’s the canary in the coal mine. It’s the most honest market we have in the country, and it’s telling us that this decrepit… regime is just about to blow up,” Thiel added.

Thiel has made a few interesting statements about bitcoin in recent times and has alluded to China using bitcoin as a financial weapon against the United States. In 2018, Thiel said that he was “long bitcoin” and that he believed institutional investors would eventually jump into the crypto economy.

The Palantir co-founder has also said that bitcoin was a “deeply contrarian” investment. When speaking about Satoshi Nakamoto, Thiel suggested that if people knew who the inventor of Bitcoin was, “the government would arrest him.”

Problems with CGMiner 4.9.2

I have tried reaching out for assistance in other Bitcoin forums, to no avail as apparently I have bought miner hardware that is not supported by the people who are responsible for CGMiner software. While I respect that, I am struggling with support on my kit and I would really appreciate some assistance if possible.::Listen

I have tried reaching out for assistance in other Bitcoin forums, to no avail as apparently I have bought miner hardware that is not supported by the people who are responsible for CGMiner software. While I respect that, I am struggling with support on my kit and I would really appreciate some assistance if possible.

I have a WhatsMiner M3 that runs CGMiner 4.9.2. When it arrived, I switched it on and it had 3 mining pools already configured from the factory. It looked like CGMiner was running and it was mining. The device became very hot, 83 degrees I think it was and then the screaming fans seemed to slow down to a crawl. Within a few minutes the device had cooled down significantly and the fans sped back up to full speed. I changed the pool settings from factory to the pool information using my chosen pool and worker name for the device. I then restarted CGMiner but it would not restart. I then rebooted the box too but that made no difference. The device does not get hot at all currently.

At that point I only had 1 pool setup, so I added in 3 just to be sure and tried restarting CGMiner but it still didn’t work. The power supply is fine, and the device itself seems fine and I get get into the web interface as well as connect to the device via SSH. The only visual feedback I have is from the device overview page which gives me the following error:

EventCode: E011 EventCause: Slot-0 Zero HS 4500 Seconds EventAction: Zero HS Warning EventCount: 6 LastTime: Thu Dec 7 12:59:42 2017 EventSource: system-monitor

Please see these images, they describe what I am seeing:

1) The device overview where it shows that CGMiner is waiting to start: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1c6N1YvdUHrC6pYo0L3aaPgZhwes3AP4i

2) The pool settings: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1m0uYPcc_o-T_I2ZQ8G3M6qDk_wUVgX-2

3) The device status I get when I try start CGMiner vis SSH: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OHxwqlqoFGfer6qyv8VuRkrimXWtI7O6

4) The event code error as described above: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aYE0-RhxfB-W-eGx2AW0XKh64cvIBReQ

My concern is that the initial run where it got up to 83 degrees has broken the miner, because it doesn’t get hot at all currently. Also, because CGMiner will not start, the device shows no system status information, I cannot see temperature info, I can’t see if the hashboards are okay, I can’t tell at all where the proble lies. Please could I ask someone to assist me with figuring out what it wrong with this device? I have looked at the logs but I cannot make sense of the logs as I do not know what I am looking for.

Thank you for any assistance.
