Wet Notes for 2-28-21

"This is wet notes on scuba shaq radio for sunday february twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one. Well i up today. I'm going to do an update on dry suit talq now ever since i've owned a dry suit i've been using those little pouches of talk to dust my wrist seals and neck seals. And that makes it easier to put on especially if it gets a little humid. Well we used to get these little pouches from magnet who then became gear aid when we could no longer get them from juried. We switched to getting them from diving unlimited international or dui. Recently we ran low on these talca pouches. Wanted to order some more. But do you. I stopped producing those talk pouches. I guess i'm guessing near some concern around. The safety of talk i noticed has been in news over recent years. So donna reached out to peak from dui and he suggested cornstarch to dust are seals. Make sure you do it every time now. That sounds a little strange to me. But it looks like people are using it in place of the talq. We'll give it a try. And i'll let you know how goes cornstarch. It's not just for cooking next up. Is things start opening up and we travel outside the country. We're going to need to get tested for in nineteen before we can come back well. Resorts are out there. And they're starting to accommodate their customers and making it easier to get tested. So for example. I just saw where enroll roett to resorts. The turquoise bay dive resort and the mayan princess beach dive resort are offering onsite cova testing on thursdays and fridays. And then what happens. Is you'll get electronic. Results are available in three hours. And then you'll have a hard copy the next day now you still have to pay for it in a costs about fifty bucks. Then i also check the cocoa view site down there and roett tan and it looks like they are also offering onsite testing but their prices coming in at eighty five dollars so it looks like if you're going to travel to row attend you'll find it easier to get tested for corona virus and get back home as long as you test negative but i think more and more of these dive operators out there are going to provide that cova testing or options for people so that you can go travel and then make it easier for you to get back home. Also last i think a couple of weeks ago. The president of the united states signed executive order. One three nine eight and with that executive order it mandated. That masks are to be worn on all public maritime vessels including ferries. What does that mean for dive boats. Well deana did. Some research and found out that this mandate includes commercial vessels used for dive charters and dive related activities. You'll need to be masked up upon boarding disembarking and the duration of travel. Obviously this can only apply to us. Operators i think this makes sense and i'm sure common sense will prevail given our unique circumstances when we go diving way back in the beginning of two thousand twenty i did a segment on dive travel insurance then in mid two thousand and twenty. I noticed the divers alert network. Dan their travel insurance was not available on their website is back now. However there was a short article on dive newswire that indicated that there are qualified cove in nineteen related cancellation and interruptions covered. There's a lot of detail on their website. You can read through. Essentially they cover prepaid travel arrangements. If you your host at your destination you traveling companion or family member test positive for covid. Nineteen there's also levels of coverage while traveling but you need to do your research. The good news however is that the dan travel insurance is back and it looks like they are helping to try and address the corona virus issues. It's always a good day when i go out to the mailbox and that the latest issue of the journal of diving history has arrived. That happened earlier this week. The cover of the first quarter two thousand twenty one magazine features to five women who made up the team of tech tight to mission six dash fifty. Which was america's first off female saturation team. The five women included peggy lucas. An hurley hotline renata lynch true elena schmidt and sylvia earle the journal of diving history. Formerly historical. diver magazine is the official magazine of the historical diving society. Usa and is part of your membership. I can't wait to dive into all the articles i saw. The other day that there's been a an oil spill off the coast of israel and lebanon and it's impacting over one hundred miles of coastline. Now what's a little disconcerting about this is that they don't know where this is coming from this washing up on the beaches. It's the seems like there's some sort of gag order on the release of information. I'm just not sure why there was. Also a thin whale washed up on the beach apparently with oil in its loans. They say this is undoing. Much of the progress made over the last thirty years. Let's hope they figure out where this is coming from or where it came from. And if they're able to minimize the impacts and finally here's some really big news in the scuba industry especially related to scuba tanks. Luxembourg is getting out of the aluminum tank business on february twenty third. Luxor held their fourth quarter and full year. Two thousand and twenty analysts call and that's where they announced their divestiture of their aluminum product lines now. The rationale according to their press release is that they wanted to focus on high performance magnesium alloys zirconium catalysts and high pressure composite cylinders. Guess to profit margin. Just wasn't there on the aluminum tanks. They plan on selling those two aluminum forming operations in the united states and one in the in the uk. But we don't know who they're going to sell it to just yet more to come on. This is it as it. Unfolds now luxembourg. They produced a lot of tanks. And there's a lot of them out there and we're going to see what that does to the supply chain as we move forward.

The Tempest Stele

"This artifact is at its heart a big stone block it is a slab. It is a big slab made of cal site. That's currently in multiple fragments. I think through at least three major fragments And they were recovered from the temple complex of karnak which is in the ancient egyptian city of thebes near the modern Upper egypt city of luxor. And this artifact was recovered by archaeologists. I think in the late nineteen forties early nineteen fifties Karnak of course this big beautiful temple complex you may have seen. It represented digitally and transformers movies. Where they're big robots slugging around there or as an actual shooting location in the spy. Who loved me. Did the transformers really battle here. I think they did at some point. The transporter the it's part of the the raison d'etre of of Transformers to eventually just slam through and demolish every work of humankind like all artifacts and landscapes must be ground into sand by the transformers until only transformers remain right. Okay just a baron. Featureless earth completely smooth but with transformers with mack trucks and jeeps and stuff. But anyway. what's the deal with this slab. The tempest de originally stood about one point. Eight meters tall so about six feet tall and it bears an inscription texts that was copied on both sides in these horizontal lines. But it also has imagery at the top so to quote from One of the papers that we're going to be referencing today. I think that this description comes from this. First paper that was published by karen pollinger foster robert k. Rittner and benjamin. Our foster in the journal of near eastern studies in nineteen ninety-six quote above the horizontal body of each text is a lou net with to adore st- scenes and brief vertical labels unlike the parallel text. The tulu net labels display minor variation in wording both faces preserve dual scenes of the king followed by female deity of fecundity carrying offering trays. And these traits have like fruits and vegetables on them. So you've got this big old texts. That's on both sides in this image of a king and a lady who represents fertility Carrying up some nice foodstuffs fruits and vegetables. Nice plant matter and so here. I think maybe we should actually just read the full text of the tempus teela because it's not all that long And this is something that i personally really love. May maybe other people aren't as interested in design but it just reading the text of of texts that are this old like these. Ancient egyptian inscriptions really does kind of put me in an altered state of consciousness. You know it's like I i feel like i'm inhabiting a mind. That is so separated from me by time and culture that it's a little bit creepy. I mean to to a certain extent. That's that's exactly what's happening right. The transfer of information across the ages. Yeah and in. There's this like weird tingling down at the bottom of my brain where i just feel like. There's a lot that's really important that i'm not understanding but i'm getting just the slightest hint of what it is coming through in the translation Well that's the tingler you've got that. That's the vincent price movie. Well i know what you're talking about with okay. This english translation is by the american egyptologist. Robert honor who is the one of the authors on a couple of studies that we're going to be mentioning today now again. The steelers text is damaged. So there are some gaps and some of these have been filled in with. What is very likely what their contents were so. There's just some texts that we don't have but we feel very confident you know. This is what it would have been another parts or just left blank. Where there's less certainty and i guess when we get one of those blank spots just sort of pause for a second in the reading so here it goes long live the horace great of manifestations he of the two ladies pleasing of birth the golden horus who binds the two lands king of the upper and lower egypt. Neb feddie raw son of raw ahmosis living forever. Now then his majesty came raw himself had appointed him to be king of upper egypt. Then his majesty dwelt at the town of said. Jeff tally in the district. Just to the south of kandara while on raw. Lord of the thrones of the two lands was in thebes. It was his majesty who sailed south to offer bread beer and everything good and pure now after the offering then attention was given in this district now then the cold image of this god at his body was installed in this temple while he was enjoy. Now then this great god desired. His majesty was god's declared their discontent. The gods caused the sky to come in a tempest of rain with darkness in the western region and the sky unleashed without cessation louder than the cries of the masses more powerful than while. The rain raged on the mountains louder than the noise of the cataract which is at elephants. Every house every quarter that they reached floating on the water like skiffs of papyrus opposite the royal residence for a period of days while a torch could not be lit in the two lands. Then his majesty said how much greater this is than the wrath of the great god than the plans of the gods then his majesty descended to his boat with his council following him while the crowds on the east and west had hidden faces having no clothing on them after the manifestation of the god's wrath then his majesty reach the interior of thebes with gold confronting gold for this statue so that he meaning on raw received that which he desired then. His majesty began to reestablish the two lands to drain the flooded territories without his to provide them with silver with gold with copper with oil and cloth of every bolt that could be desired. The and his majesty made himself comfortable inside the palace life prosperity health. His majesty was informed that the mortuary concessions had been entered by water with the tomb. Chambers collapsed the funerary mansions undermined in the pyramids fallen having been made into that which was never made. Then his majesty commanded to restore the temples which had been into ruin in this entire land to refurbish the monuments of the gods to erect their closure walls to provide the sacred in the noble chamber to mask the secret places to introduce into their shrines. The cult statues which were cast to the ground to set up the braziers to erect offering tables to establish their bread offerings to double the income of the personnel to put the land into its former state. Then it was done in accordance with everything that his majesty had commanded

"And other financial services if you interact with any american company. They have to do this. Because it's the law. And so i think that like the idea that american and canadian companies will be doing. Kyc the ammo. Participants is standard. Every american cool needs to do it now and You know that part's really important for longevity of the business year. That's unfortunately just a part of doing business in north america. So i mean it's gonna come to everything that touches mining in am l. Policy is one thing but kyc is where i think. That's the experienced difference that most people have. Kyc is something that is interactive. you're submitting documents. You're doing the selfie that you have to submit or something along those lines. So i can understand though that a lot of people who are mining bitcoin for the right reasons or mining in general for the right reasons i don't want to do. Kyc am l. Don't wanna go through those processes kyc. I should say because they want to gather anonymous bitcoin. I don't know that with the value of bitcoin. That's going to change anything right. Rytas if you think about why people are doing it the at the end of the day. It's to make money. You're not doing it illegally now or are you gonna stop mining bitcoin just because you have to. Kyc you're not. You're not doing it for the wrong reasons anyway. Right so who is going to deter those pools. I can see how it's perceived as boot-licking read it can see how it's perceived like making these announcements in coming onto doing press behind it. I can i can. I can understand why people see it as like brown nosing trying to cozy up to regulators potentially. Yeah i think That's a very fine line to walk. Is like we won regulators to look at the space in the at it and i think blocking regulators altogether non engaging with the muddle for long term in the. Us and canadian community is Because at the regulators are important that they do have a lot of power here so it's about guiding them in a in a smart pragmatic way to make sure that they're making right decisions. That will maybe take away. Some of the features lovable bitcoin but ultimately set it up for its long term success. And so i. I think going extreme at potentially you know may not be the way to do that. We'll see I already stated also my opinion on on different pale pools. So i i think that like unless you're doing profit switching and you're doing full paper share method is really hard together straight Potentially there are some people that want to join. But i think that is the way. The market's heading long term is like if lecture can generate point five percent uplift over four pay per share rate of bitcoin. It's going to be really hard for a pure bitcoin. Only goal to compete with that because at the end of the miners capitalistic profit-driven for sure. Bitcoin pretend hash is the number one consideration. In every single discussion we have with clients as it should be right. I mean the the reason that the pools that offer zero fees is because it's more to their bottom line. You know when you guys plan to come out of beta with this. Nick guzman might kill me but You know an end of q. One we'll have it like as a full product all right. There's a lot of intricate Intricacies that go into this so there there's a lot of products which is out there but if you go and test them there a long time only like who three basis points in uplift switching between bitcoin. pch dsp. there are times maybe it goes to like fifty basis points but for the majority..

"I guess under clocking The incentives are probably less clear after for more. Or maybe this is the first time thinking about it so kind there but I understand over clocking incentive. Because you're trying to get the most out of potentially there's too much incentive. Because then you could be overclock me at dangerous levels and burning up people's machines in the hopes that you're where it's now you know pumping an extra five ten percent. Firmer is like a double edged sword. And there's a reason that you know the manufacturers don't want firmer on the machines. I mean it's like when you're hosting gps's right if you're hosting jeep us. You don't want people. You know messing around with their their overclock setting. gp's are incredibly finicky. Because of the miners themselves. It's not because the machines are unstable because the minors like the tinker in the more you tinker with these machines as they're already doing extremely difficult works. It's never good for the life cycle of the machine itself. Unless it's renzo us really to plug in for everybody. This is really excited to see. Like i think You know the brain is the most professional more guys You know ed. We'll probably need for saying this. But i do think point. There needs to be like north american for atp professional term. Why i mean. just play. devil's advocate. Why does why does there need to be a north american pool. Wiser need north american firmware. What does it matter this. I think this is really down into recourse where you're trusting provider not to do things like overclock beyond its capacity and You're trusting them as kind of a service provider. And so ultimately if you're a public company operating in the us or you have like very institutional shareholders and the strict compliance team you will want some level of recourse with the counterparty. You're dealing with if they ship you this this firmware that you're in stalling onto your equipment like there's huge concerns. They're using a provider. That's not in your jurisdiction that you have you know like never met in person and so brains brains definitely the most professional team right now. You know you're not going to go and use like these these around ones in russia But i think at some point you do need Some firm where You know it in a legal jurisdiction. That's your own and maybe will create like a us entity or something. I don't know. But i think it is important longtime the it sounds to me. Like what you're saying is that you need firmware from someone in a place where you have the ability to sue them if they break all your shit. Yeah is that just the. That's like the layman's way of putting it right. If if if this offer is going to go on on your machines you wanna make sure you're able to hold people accountable and seek restitution if there's an issue exactly and often oftentimes the ability who is it deters. People from doing things like extremely over clocking the equipment when it holds people to hire in accountability when they know they are threatened. There being sued. If they you know as you would say do much korea trade fuck rebounds we hear all the time about the the opacity. Opaqueness is not a word the opacity.

"One of the things that we've never really talked about. Is your background in mining. Even on show a couple of times but for a while there. You were running a facility in kansas city right. Yeah that's right ray. Six for a while like ninety five percent six okay although yes super bitter backstory. We started lecture in like august twenty seventeen and obviously those were crazy times back then nicoletti. My two co founders. They were looking at place like twenty of our own machines in the facility and there was no good qualifications back then you had to go through like a random website that connects you like a guy running computers in his back shed and that'd be like the hosting site. Yeah we thought like at the time like. Let's go into invest in one of these Sites said own some of the infrastructure side where software guys. We built software products but let's vertically integrated with it infrastructure level so invested some money into the site An hour north of Kansas city missouri had four megawatts total of power But none of the power was flowing yet the building so we slowly build up to it. We took a colocation approach. And so you know a lot of the paints we went through. I think that's why. I think compass it's such a great product is because like all the pains be went through. I think would have been helped if we had compass at the time but we went through a very painful process of like having hundred fifty retail clients into an entirely new business posting their machines in a facility. That wasn't will build wasn't equipped to deal with the kansas city. Summer at just under capitalized from the start and so kind of all the everything kind of went wrong. That could've and it ended up going under. But i think You know is a very valuable learning experience for our team. The infrastructure side of the businesses incredibly hard and so. We've learned kind of the difficulties there. We wanna build like the best software products. We tend to support that but No way do. I wanna head down to a facility again and i work with nick foster like two. Am at night with pizza. Hut trying to wrack minors this man. Did you guys moved to the area while the city was operational. Yeah i was about like a two minute. Walk away in this like a motel. Yikes in this town of a few thousand people. It was just me like making anywhere. They came to own a few weekends. But i kinda went. Live down there for a bit trying to turn thing around and you know jumping into this location he is. I think it's really hard to manage that many clients if your new business you know. Maybe a professional company like has the process down pat but for a lot of these new colocation. They may have incredible like power rates could facility but just like interfacing with a hundred and fifty. Two hundred clients is incredibly tough. So that's the compass like an incredible amount of value to these types of operations. Is you can kind of partner with somebody to do that for you. And it solves a lot of your headaches there. It's difficult for people and when you have good technical knowledge and you want to build out a warehouse and host minors. There's a lot to it you know. I think that you know people will find cheap power and they don't understand that like having cheap power is okay but like there's cheap power everywhere. There's reasons that even though people find cheap power they have trouble standing up a facility whether itself mining or it's hosting for other people is because there's a lot goes into it. It's not just you know building a a chicken coop and putting up some racks getting getting people in you know as restraining people for compass you can tell like you can tell when you have a conversation with somebody like who's ready to host clients and who is just trying to jump on the gravy train like who understands that there's an opportunity now they just wanna you know. Stand something up and get some machines in. There's going to be people that are out there that are going to end up. Getting wrecked by jumping in some of these facilities are just not ready to handle them. And i mean like the the cores and some of those other guys for them. It's prohibitive to take smaller clients. They have they have a ton of space available. And i think they're targeting a different clientele well well-capitalized. They've got the ability to understand the financials properly. They know what they're getting into a few machines. Goff line it's not the end of their world just a different bag. But i think that more people than ever now looking to get into bitcoin mining and i just think that's gonna continue to grow company Where you know investing capital into these facilities but you are investing time and Your your brand to a degree at in your reputation. So there is that level like due-diligence which you wanna pick the winners and losers. I think that's really hard. Because you know at the time that we had mighty tack back in early. Eighteen via like a dozen competitors probably only a few of them made it guys like compute north and frontier who are our competitors at the time. They're the ones who kind of went on to have pretty good operations where islam You never heard of again. So it's it's a very hard job to pick those kind of coming facilities which ones are going to make it which aren't You hope you get like a computer. North style But there is a possibility.

A New Model for Bitcoin Mining Pools with Ethan Vera of Luxor

"One of the things that we've never really talked about. Is your background in mining. Even on show a couple of times but for a while there. You were running a facility in kansas city right. Yeah that's right ray. Six for a while like ninety five percent six okay although yes super bitter backstory. We started lecture in like august twenty seventeen and obviously those were crazy times back then nicoletti. My two co founders. They were looking at place like twenty of our own machines in the facility and there was no good qualifications back then you had to go through like a random website that connects you like a guy running computers in his back shed and that'd be like the hosting site. Yeah we thought like at the time like. Let's go into invest in one of these Sites said own some of the infrastructure side where software guys. We built software products but let's vertically integrated with it infrastructure level so invested some money into the site An hour north of Kansas city missouri had four megawatts total of power But none of the power was flowing yet the building so we slowly build up to it. We took a colocation approach. And so you know a lot of the paints we went through. I think that's why. I think compass it's such a great product is because like all the pains be went through. I think would have been helped if we had compass at the time but we went through a very painful process of like having hundred fifty retail clients into an entirely new business posting their machines in a facility. That wasn't will build wasn't equipped to deal with the kansas city. Summer at just under capitalized from the start and so kind of all the everything kind of went wrong. That could've and it ended up going under. But i think You know is a very valuable learning experience for our team. The infrastructure side of the businesses incredibly hard and so. We've learned kind of the difficulties there. We wanna build like the best software products. We tend to support that but No way do. I wanna head down to a facility again and i work with nick foster like two. Am at night with pizza. Hut trying to wrack minors this man. Did you guys moved to the area while the city was operational. Yeah i was about like a two minute. Walk away in this like a motel. Yikes in this town of a few thousand people. It was just me like making anywhere. They came to own a few weekends. But i kinda went. Live down there for a bit trying to turn thing around and you know jumping into this location he is. I think it's really hard to manage that many clients if your new business you know. Maybe a professional company like has the process down pat but for a lot of these new colocation. They may have incredible like power rates could facility but just like interfacing with a hundred and fifty. Two hundred clients is incredibly tough. So that's the compass like an incredible amount of value to these types of operations. Is you can kind of partner with somebody to do that for you. And it solves a lot of your headaches there. It's difficult for people and when you have good technical knowledge and you want to build out a warehouse and host minors. There's a lot to it you know. I think that you know people will find cheap power and they don't understand that like having cheap power is okay but like there's cheap power everywhere. There's reasons that even though people find cheap power they have trouble standing up a facility whether itself mining or it's hosting for other people is because there's a lot goes into it. It's not just you know building a a chicken coop and putting up some racks getting getting people in you know as restraining people for compass you can tell like you can tell when you have a conversation with somebody like who's ready to host clients and who is just trying to jump on the gravy train like who understands that there's an opportunity now they just wanna you know. Stand something up and get some machines in. There's going to be people that are out there that are going to end up. Getting wrecked by jumping in some of these facilities are just not ready to handle them. And i mean like the the cores and some of those other guys for them. It's prohibitive to take smaller clients. They have they have a ton of space available. And i think they're targeting a different clientele well well-capitalized. They've got the ability to understand the financials properly. They know what they're getting into a few machines. Goff line it's not the end of their world just a different bag. But i think that more people than ever now looking to get into bitcoin mining and i just think that's gonna continue to grow company Where you know investing capital into these facilities but you are investing time and Your your brand to a degree at in your reputation. So there is that level like due-diligence which you wanna pick the winners and losers. I think that's really hard. Because you know at the time that we had mighty tack back in early. Eighteen via like a dozen competitors probably only a few of them made it guys like compute north and frontier who are our competitors at the time. They're the ones who kind of went on to have pretty good operations where islam You never heard of again. So it's it's a very hard job to pick those kind of coming facilities which ones are going to make it which aren't You hope you get like a computer. North style But there is a possibility. You get something else So yeah the. I'm kind of jealous of you like getting to watch the life cycle of those Facilities because i you know. It's pretty cool to be with people during their setup phase and then moving on to see them have success. I think as we get like three or four years in industry here. It's been amazing to like.

"There are thousands and thousands being ordered every from facilities in china to move to various places russia venezuela other places that have really cheap power in russia. Actually there are already like hundred and forty bucks so it's not too far fetched to think they could hit two hundred bucks here pretty soon. Yeah the russia Mining piece that you guys did was was really well done so we encourage everyone to head. To the hatchery. Website took that report. I think the incentive piece like there are some weird incentives in the market right. Now that you need to impact so in some ways the public money companies are willing to buy all these new machines even if hide ours pretoria hash capex because their incentives to pump up their amount of hash rate of their amount prepping because that's directly what drives the value of their stock and their market cap whereas in twenty twenty one. We may start to see these companies break. Profitability and the sell side analysts will start to use more profitability based based valuation metrics. Like a enterprise value to Multiple or something in that hr so now it may shift from okay. Let's get as much traded rogue news possible to now let's be pragmatic and how we by cap bax and make sure that we're generating the highest return possible and so that could actually shift the dynamics between a drop a drop in demand for the new machines and then at those companies start buying up in the us markets. So it's weird to start thinking about this already. But i mean we're almost a quarter of the way to the next having right so you think about that and you just wonder if there's two years left on the signs i don i mean we just. We just got to see some more option of bitcoin bbc transaction fees and. I know we've got some time left here. Still in four years as an attorney in bitcoin if bitcoin follows citibank's prediction and hits. What did they say two hundred and eighteen thousand in two thousand twenty one. All's right with that everyone will be fine. But that's crazy. I can't wait for alejandro. Having twenty twenty four commentaries can be super. Oh just leaving the but the the transaction i think is a really interesting piece. So in the first half of november they average about fourteen and a half percent of mining than the second half. They're down to seven percent so they are kind of all over the place between that fifteen two. I think even down to three percent range and so when you're trying to forecast value hash rate moving forward transaction fees is really important part of it at obviously with having coming up in three and a bit years here. Now that's gonna become you had more important sooner. Started having coming up all right. We started having so it's kind of like you know when those people had those running tickers of how many days left in office does donald trump have. We should do the same thing but for the the bitcoin having woman outlook. I know aside from all we've just discussed you know one of the things that we've never really talked about. Is your background in mining. Even on show a couple of times but for a while there. You were running a facility in kansas city right. Yeah that's right ray.

"I've got a chance to talk to this gentleman. But welcome back to the show. Ethan vera from luxor ethan. How you doing man. Thanks for having me back on it. This was my number one. Podcast of twenty twenty so on glasses. Everyone's thanks man appreciate that my three year old had hijacked my wife's phone and he's figured out how to use spotify so her her top playlist for twenty twenty were nickelback and florida which was pretty exposed. Come on you gotta keep that private Now i know nickelback music is made for at least detracts. The three zero but Going man yeah. Things have been going really well I think everyone in the money market is a chain kind of a rising tide mentality right now and everyone's kind of full steam ahead you guys. You know all of our other friends of mining. So it's an exciting time to be in the states for sure. The square news yesterday about the ten million dollar fund that they're going to allocate towards renewable energy slash mining companies virtue signaling or. You think that's going to go to anyone meaningful. I hope so. You know as we've learned over the past twelve months industry. there's really like concept of green mining. I think can extend beyond just mining with wind or solar which i if you're outside. The industry automatically assume so guys like a great american mining or upstream data that are using clear gaza really interesting way to mitigate some concerns around carbon emission in mining so hopefully Square crypto thinks about it in a more pragmatic way and will deploy that capital across like different types of minors including like flare gas sites and whatnot. But let's be honest. Like million isn't money. Today's mining spigot through by like a handful of rigs from maine. So hopefully you know expense to and can get a bigger budget there from what i read it. It seems like a venture investment. And so they're gonna look for those kinds of returns that's gonna be the other interesting thing is which renewable companies are which companies focused on renewable energy and mining. Are they going to be able to see adventure style return. It's not common. The venture capital goes towards mining farms. yeah i think harry sudak puts this well as like the only way to have that kind of the upside is if you accumulate bitcoin on your balance sheet and then it's a bet on bitcoin. But if you're like a mining farm where your businesses by infrastructure unplugging and machines. Unless bitcoin runs not a venture capital business. The venture capital side is that bitcoin accumulation on your balance sheet. And we've seen that with like the recent run-up in public mining company is and the value of companies in crypto. The ones that accumulated more bitcoin. Balance sheets guys like riot or are go. Those are the ones that really can run when bitcoin price runs because they are accumulating that kind of potential. So maybe you know relating this back to square crypto. Maybe they do start to invest in those companies that have like specifications on their treasury management not liquidating defeat every day. They are trying to use mining as a way to humilate more bitcoin on their balance. Sheet of accumulating more bitcoin to see michael sailors announcement today. They're selling more of the company to.

"Like all sorts for their afterlife right so they filled with furniture food statues boats so he could sail to their side and of course jewel howard carter. Just he discovered king tut's tomb in nineteen twenty six or twenty two nineteen twenty two. It was just completely covered in gold. And the reason why they kind of moved from because before they used to be buried like kings were buried and the pyramids. The reason why they moved to the kings was because there was a very remote fowley like an ancient valley because when they were the pyramids people steal from like get. The you know people break into the pyramids and steal all the valuables in there. So that's where they kind of took to this hidden valley of the kings thousands of years after they built the pyramids. So yeah it was pretty cool so yes. After my three tombs they are climb back up over that mountain at midday super hot boiling and then found my bike. Segmented my little guide Game a tip and then bike to the tomb of the nobles so there they are more near the near the river like near the nile. Because they weren't as wasn't as many valuables in there for the record like five hundred tombs in in the tomb the nobles then my favorite noble tomb with center for and it again. Just the inside was so beautiful murals her graphics and so bright and cough like it could have been painted yesterday. It was incredible that you thinking no actually two three thousand years old. I guess being in these chambers especially stuck it preserves everything in there so well hence the pair of the mummies as well So yeah so. After you know had a little underground the tombs of the nobles. I then went okay. Well i definitely have to take at the valley that queens he s queen so i bike over there and there was only two teams open so there was hardly anyone there. But there a there is a tagged along with this family from colorado. 'cause they paid for guys at so. I just kind of psycho to join you. And then they offer baksheesh like attempt to get another to open which they got doug so we got to go to three two so that was pretty cool probably the most famous tomb. There is queen nefer. Tari and not is if you wanted to go see that. Then that's an extra thousand egyptian pounds. So yes after. I cleaned it up in. The valley headed over to ramsey's three temple. I think i bike again. And that's also kona note otherwise known as madinat habu. It's very similar to karnataka. Where i was the day before. But it's across the other side of the other side of the nile and that's five hundred feet long and again at surrounded by mud wall enclosure and inside. There's all these different chapels. It's just cool like it is the biggest open air museum in the world. It's just incredible. So is about sunset. And i ended up getting just getting local ferry back.

"Don't know very important. Listen to your gut gut instincts. Always right and god said okay. Let's give it a shot. He turned out to be really nice boy so we hit her but hit my bike under some bushes. And he's like okay. This is a shortcut while the shortcut was climbing. The mountain said going around. We're going to go up and down. Oh my gosh. i was sweating buckets. I was just in my tvos like you know kind of flip flop things and it was just super sharp rocks and looked course lots of loose gravel like loose rocks but you know he was like dancing up it and Anyways i followed it up. Got up to the top and y what a view i mean. It was amazing and no one really did all the tourists down. The you know by on the road normal people probably do but the vs could just see the whole valley of the kings. It was it was incredible view so it was definitely worth the height. So that we would you know got downhillers side of the mountain into the by the kings and i went into got enough three or four teams including king tut's tomb which is really cool but my favorite to with two tooth missiles. The second tooth misses a third. Sorry doesn't look like it's even open these days. Because there's like sixty five excavated tombs they are and they render still could be hundreds married but depending on when you go like certain teams will closer doing you know. Try to fix the renovate them whatever so right now at twenty twenty. There's about eight tombs open. So like i said with your entrance fee Sixteen bucks get into two three teams although there's three tombs that Like the best teams basically. He had to pay extra. It's not too. I mean like one of them randy to ramsay the third as i think that was it just extra egypt hundred egyptian pounds the coolest. What like seti is a thousand extra egyptian pounds and the king. Tut's is three hundred like said what sixteen fifteen sixteen To the dollar. So you can pack into those. So the one i went in so yes. He had to climb a lot of stairs which are like. Burr carved out of the site of the line the limestone mountains so he climbed the stairs and then you had descended in like three flights of stairs into it was so cool being to lovely built for a ferro from three thousand years ago. We just blew my mind. Basically and a lot of the The tombs well the once upon a time. Not definitely went. They'll be like filled with so the sorry so other teams route like all. The walls are decorated with beautiful murals and fix and ferry brightly colored And then they'd also be filled.

'cause it should have been like said about ten maximum so i managed to negotiate. Got him down to twelve so he's still made a bit more money off of us And then we of course did the other usual thing to his yet. Go back for support. Shisha pipe so had i was becoming. I still was getting massive head spin to not like feeling really high of tobacco. Because i never smoked before but it was a nice little buzz for church and then the next day everyone else is just being lame and just wanted to lay her. And i'm like what like where looks for there so much to see a do here so i just took off for myself and decided to walk which was about five k. to karnataka which is like It's it's an ancient egyptian temple which is dedicated to amun raw. And i'm in raw was the basic the supreme ruler of the universe. And why they built it was so they could have contact between on raw. And the pharaoh the pharaoh was known as the supreme ruler of the earth so that was kind of like their contact point and it is a massive. It's about two square kilometers. And then there's a smaller area which is dedicated to his wife. Moot and also north of the main play like ten. There is another area that dedicated to monto. Who is the falcon-headed god of war so to get in there. You walk down avenue shrink. Shes it is so. The construction of this temple is like four thousand years and it took two thousand years to build by complete. But yeah it's amazing so you walk down and there's like q. Sankt huge sanctuaries their temples statues obelisks pylons pillars and then all the pylons are pillars. They have like the hieroglyphics all the way up and down them in around and you know they kind of depicted scenes of the time. And then there's a great bought khabazela hall and that is west of the main sanctuary and that is just huge. It's like hundred and three meters by fifty two meters and there's one hundred and thirty four columns there and the the twelfth largest are twenty one meters and they couldn't support the the main structure of the the hall and then you go to the con su tempo which was dedicated to and woodside concert and that was built by ramsey three. So yes so. I spent about an hour and a half walking through their take photos. Just it was just amazing. I mean back then. It only cost me less than two dollars. Nowadays or twenty twenty. It's about fifteen dollars so still barred third. After there i went to the looks are temple. And that's kind of the opposite end of the avenue of snakes and guess they used back in the old days they used to be connected..

The search for ancient civilizations on Earth ... from space

"Okay. So first off Sarah Park is kind of a big deal. She's helped uncover prehistoric commented fossils in eroded canyon lake beds, an ancient amphitheater under an airport in Rome and Egypt, which is her specialty. She's uncovered thousands of settlements including more than a dozen pyramids. Are you tired the perpetually, but it's okay. She's written about those discoveries by the way in a recent book called archaeology from. From Space and yes, Sarah does go to sites and do some real digging in the dirt archaeological excavation. But her superpower is analyzing satellite imagery and data to know where to dig in the first place. Most of the imagery I use is called optical satellite imagery. So so it stayed essentially taken from light that's reflected off the surface and looking for changes in patterns we're looking for. How things relate to one another, and hopefully, that will indicate where there could potentially be archaeological sites or features with insights, and then we get to go out on the ground and do serve mapping and excavate them. When you say you use satellite images, what are we talking about a week? Where do those images come from and kind of how do you manipulate them? So it's a, it's a range of different satellite images. So if we're interested in looking really really large landscapes, we use data from NASA but if we're looking. Looking. At very high resolution satellite images, we use the essentially the imagery that you see on Google Earth, which is from a company called Knox our technologies that challenge with that data is that we can't see through trees. I'm dealing with rainforests, of Central, America or Southeast Asia or forest say in New England. Then we use Technology Coal Ladar which tends for light detection and ranging, and that's Eliezer mapping system that you put on an airplane or a drone or a UNLV essentially allowing you to remove trees and see what's there. In your book, you also explain how archaeologists now have the ability to detect temperature differences below the ground. Why? Yes. How first of all cool second of all, how does that work and why is that important? So one particular part of the light spectrum that is really really useful for for the work that we do is the thermal infrared. So if you have anything that's buried and is a chamber or avoid like a room, a tomb a very passageway, you know if it's kind of. Of like when you go into a basement or a wine cellar, you know the temperature drops a couple of degrees. So by using thermal infrared, you can see these very subtle differences in temperature, and if say an area shows up with a lower temperature, that's the shape of a rectangle. Okay. There's something that's there that we may need to check out right in Salt Lake. You're like cake in archaeologists out of business, right? So it's like you still end up going in there. It just kind of. Of helps like going in there and digging stuff up and looking at stuff with different techniques. It's basically just giving you a good idea of like there might be something here, right ex-. Exactly I mean the coolest part of my job I think is the actual physical excavation and that so time consuming and so what the satellites allow us to do is not just fine sites, but also track over time potential threats to them. So whether it's rising water whether it's urbanization or development, maybe there are. are other issues that could be affecting. The sites would allows it's a tool that allows geologists to help, monitor and protect sites right, and and so you even kind of tried to estimate like obviously estimating how many more archaeological sites might be out there, and it's in like the millions right I. I think I estimated and I'm probably I probably not going to give the right number guy the book even though it was the summer, it was Sarah, fifty, fifty, fifty, fifty, sixty, seventy. Eighty ninety. So. Yeah. So so basically I think something like forty, million, fifty, million sites left to find. But like I could be wrong, it could be one, hundred, million, it could be ten, million North Y'all just yet has written me an angry email saying how dare you? Thank, like I think I was pretty on the mark. So. There's another thing that I kind of wanted to talk to you because I don't talk to that many archaeologists, you know what I mean, but now at my own show and they can't stop me, Sarah. So. Can we talk a little bit about how colonialism and archaeology have intersected in the past and and maybe how it still does now, and what we can do about that? I? Guess that's a big question for you. The big question and it's something I and my colleagues think about. A. Lot. So first of all I, have to acknowledge that that archaeology especially, egyptology. It both those fields as well as anthropology, they have deeply racist colonialist routes. All of them, you know Westerners parachute in. Do their projects were essentially archaeological tourists that were probably rank. rankle a lot of my colleagues I. don't care someone needs to speak out about this and they leave which is, which is appalling. You know I pay guards around at the site where I work at list. I have very close relationships with the village My. My education course staff. I speak to them every single week and and at the end of the day, it's about those relationships. So I think we all have to do a lot of hard stares in the mirror at ourselves and ask what are we taking and what are we leaving? Are we training? Are we providing equipment and materials? What else should we be doing to create some more parody and the in the work that we're doing and I'm not the only one doing this by there's so many colleagues both in Egypt and elsewhere are being which were intentional. But I think we have to ask a lot of hard questions. You talk in the book about the importance of discoveries in how a few small discoveries can impact a field more than like a headline worthy discovery, which I. Really like because I think as a person, who's you know been a part of the scientific process. It's frustrating when you know only the big kind of discoveries. Get credit for changing fields. When in reality, it is those little findings you know what I mean. So I'll get, I'll give you an example a colleague and friend of mine few row him a fee. Fi is currently leading excavations in an area near the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and he and his team just uncovered a new workmen's village. So it's a place where men would have stayed and lived as they were constructing tombs in the Valley of the Kings. and kind of compared to other discoveries, not just in Egypt, but but elsewhere, it really didn't get much play but I think it's one of the most extraordinary discoveries in. Egypt. In the last twenty years, we only know of one other workmen's village in West Bank in Luxor. It's an unbelievable fine because it's going to tell us about the daily life of the people who lived and worked. You know three, thousand, three, hundred, three, thousand, five, hundred years ago, right up and to me, it's those discoveries that are most interesting. All Right Sarah. Park. We appreciate you. This is a lot of fun likewise. Thank you so much. Go go go to bed I I. Learned. They're GONNA pay you. Thanks to Sarah. Park.
