Hi all o/
I’m the co-founder of BitHeat(dot)io a company focused around decentralizing mining through economic forces and increasing the adoption of bitcoin. I mined for 2 years starting in 2011 and didn’t completely commit to crypto until 2013.
Since 2015 my brother and I have been working on BitHeat and only in last 9 months has the market and technology moved to the point that new entrants can enter the market and are now working full time to bring home mining back again.
Also in 2015 I wrote a draft for a distributed Identity Protocol, https://hashd.in/hashd-in-draft0/ While the project hasn’t moved forward much it something that I’m looking to develop more on as identity and reputation is a key missing ingredient in creating scale-able incentive driven organizations. If you are a go developer and familiar with decred or bitcoin and are interested in hashD DM me and I will have some work you might be interested in.
At BitHeat we are seriously considering a radical transparent open source business model to allow us to scale without being beholden to investors who would likely require patents and IP protections. Some early thoughts on how to approach this radical transparent way of doing business can be found here https://gitlab.com/ThEvryCo/re this just an early phase but we’ll be expanding and clearing things. Feel free to start an issue or submit a PR we want all the feedback we can get.
