GPU Prices and Cryptocurrency Returns. Is the crypto boom creating a semiconductor shortage? with Linus Wilson #15

The Finance Professor Podcast

Dr. Linus Wilson discusses and reads his most recent study about the cryptocurrency mining and computer hardware prices entitled "GPU Prices and Cryptocurrency Returns".   "Abstract  We look at the association between the price of a cryptocurrency and the secondary market prices of the hardware used to mine it. We find the prices of the most efficient Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) for Ethereum mining are significantly positively correlated with the daily price returns to that cryptocurrency. Journal of Economic Literature Codes: G12, G23, L11, L22, L63 Keywords: 3080, ASIC, Bitcoin, crypto, cryptocurrency, ETH, Ethereum, GeForce, GPU, mining, Nvidia, RTX  by Dr. Linus WilsonAssociate Professor of Finance Department of Economics & Finance B.I. Moody III College of Business University of Louisiana at Lafayette " "1. Introduction We use a unique data set of scalper prices for graphical processing units (GPUs) to study the association between the price of Ethereum (ticker ETH) and the hardware used to mine it. We find the most efficient ETH mining GPUs as measured by secondary market price per productivity unit (called the hashrate) had secondary market price moves that were positively correlated with daily returns to ETH. Most of the prior research into cryptocurrency mining has focussed on Bitcoin and does not measure the impact between the cryptocurrency’s price’s correlation with key mining hardware. Dimitri (2017) and Ma et al. (2019) model Bitcoin mining as an all-pay tournament. Ma et al. (2019) argue that free entry in mining is ultimately wasteful in part because Bitcoin miners consumed more electricity than all of Australia. Easley et al. (2019) are sceptical about the usefulness of Bitcoin as a medium of exchange as its network could only process seven transactions per second versus Visa which can process 50,000 transactions per second. Cong et al. (2021) find that mining pools help cryptocurrency miners eliminate ideosyncratic risk. Kristoufek (2020) finds that price of Bitcoin over the long-term impacted the cost of mining components. Mueller (2020) looks at entry and exit thresholds for both Bitcoin and Ethereum miners. In section 2, the GPU mining market for cryptocurrency is discussed and basic model of GPU pricing with ETH mining is developed. The data sources are discussed in section 3. In section 4, the statistical analysis indicates that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060ti and the RTX 3080 GPUs are significantly more attractively priced for ETH mining, and their prices are positively correlated with daily price moves in Ethereum.

Ep. 58: John Martin Crosses the Ocean in a Walker Bay 8, Uku and Istavan finish the GGR 2018, and the Viking Sky Almost Sinks Hosted by Linus Wilson

Slow Boat Sailing Podcast

John Martin III sailed across the frigid Bering Sea in a 8-foot Walker Bay sailing dinghy. He landed in Siberia after 14 days at sea when wild currents pushed him wildly off course. He planned to sneak into China after sailing down the Yukon River. First he sailed the Tanana River. He departed his native Anchorage, Alaska in the tiny rowing sailboat. He worked his way up the rivers to the Yukon before departing for his wife and son in China. Martin lacked a passport because of his past brushes with the law. He was forced to land in Siberia to avoid being sucked into the Arctic Ocean. After a dangerous beach landing in Lavrentiya in the remote Chukotka region of Russia on August 1, 2018, after 14 days he was detained by Russian authorities for several months before being deported back to his native Alaska. That is where he gave this exclusive interview to Slow Boat Sailing. Photos of his trip were reproduced with John Martin's webpage www.nooceantoowide.com. He plans to write a book of his story. Did low oil pressure cause the Viking Sky to nearly sink? The Norwegian Maratime Authority (NWA) has issued their findings on why the 2-year old, 749-foot Viking Sky cruise ship lost all diesel engine power on Saturday, March 23, 2019. The engine oil pressure got too low due to up to 26-foot seas on the rocky southern Norway coast. Only anchors hastily deployed saved the 1,379 people onboard from abandoning a sinking ship hundreds of meters from the rocks. 479 people were airlifted off the boat. 1,373 lives were in the balance on the 749-foot cruise ship Viking Sky. After losing all its engines on March 23, 2019, signalling a "Mayday" distress call, and anchoring off a lee shore in 6-to-8-meter waves and gale force conditions, several engines were working on March 24, 2019. The Viking Sky launched in 2017. The MV Hagland Captain a 300-foot cargo ship had to be abandoned by all 9 crew due to engine failure. The rescue of the Hagland Captain crew by helicopter delayed the air lift of the guests of the MV Viking Sky. Over half of its 915 passengers were air lifted by CHC Helicopters and the Southern Norway rescue services (Hovedrningssentralen) on March 23 ,to March 24. MV Viking Sky arrived in Molde, Norway at 16:30, on Sunday, March 24, 2019. Istvan Kopar went from last (13th place) to 4th place from day 27 to day 263 of the 2018 Golden Globe Race. The Hungarian-American solo sailor battled broken steering, busted windvanes, lost log lines, broken radios, and peeling fingernails to best 14 other competitors at the start of the the 2018 Golden Globe Race (GGR). The GGR 2018 is a retro race that bans the use of satellite phones and GPS navigation. Kopar got a 24-hour time penalty added to his 263 days at sea because of an unsanctioned stop and sat phone use. All the first four finishers of the sailboat race for full-keel yachts of 32-to-36 feet long have been penalized for breaking the retro rules of the yacht race. 10.25.2017Video by Petty Officer 3rd Class Jonathan R Clay Commander, Amphibious Force 7th Fleet USS Ashland (LSD 48) renders assistance to two distressed American mariners in the Pacific ocean, Oct. 25, whose sailboat had strayed well of its original course.

Jean Luc Van Den Heede shatters Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's Sunday Time's 1968 Golden Globe Race record by 100 days finishing first in the 2018 Golden Globe Race.

Eighteen sailors got to the start line, but only five remained by day 212 of the fiftieth anniversary GGR 2018. Van Den Heede led most of the way as Are Wiig, Abhilash Tomy, Gregor McGucken, Loic Lepage, and Susie Goodall's sailboats were dismasted. This retro race for 32-to-36-foot sailboats runs through the stormy Southern Ocean and even Van Den Heede could not escape unscathed. His boat was pitchpoled a few thousand miles from Cape Horn and he contemplated dropping out. His shrouds were damaged endangering his mast. Vandenheede was able to enact a repair and sailed on more slowly allowing Dutch sailor Mark Slats to almost catch him south of the Azores High. A tactical misstep of motoring though the center of the high instead of sailing more quickly to its west cost Slats any chance of taking the lead short of disaster as Van Den Heede stretched his lead to over 400 nm. This video features commentary from Sunday Time's 1968 race winner English sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston who was the only finisher of the original race in 312 days. Van Den Heede says he was inspired by his contemporary sailor Bernard Moitessier. Jean-Luc Van Den Head was the oldest entrant in the 2018 GGR. The race is his 6th circumnavigation of the Globe. Besides holding the GGR race record Van Den Heed still holds the record for the fastest east to west solo-circumnavigation of the globe. His 36-foot Rustler yacht is named Matmut after his main sponsor. Video from VNR/PPL/GGR and Mark Slats was reproduced with the permission of the GGR 2018.

Ep. 52: Abandon Ship, Dismasted in the GGR, the ADRIFT Movie, & Hurricane Florence Sinks Sailboats: Featuring Joy & Jim Carey and Sailing Banjo Interviewed by Linus Wilson

Slow Boat Sailing Podcast

Joy and Jim Carey were 150 miles from their home port in Bellingham Washington when they were struck by violent storm. A rogue wave filled their boat with water, knocked out the electronics, and nearly washed Jim overboard. Getting hypothermic with no other forms of communication, they pulled their EPIRB and abandoned their beloved sailing vessel Kelaerin. This tragic story has a happy ending. Listen to hear it. Their blog is at http://cruisinginkelaerin.blogspot.com/ Linus Wilson also gives his review of the Adrift movie in episode 52 of the podcast. In the USA Adrift became available for rental in early September 2018. This is the blurb from its distributor STX entertainment: "Starring Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent films) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games films), ADRIFT is based on the inspiring true story of two sailors who set out to journey across the ocean from Tahiti to San Diego. Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. ADRIFT is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love." Linus talks about the rescue of two Golden Globe Sailors rescued in the Indian Ocean. Abhilash Tomy was in 3rd place in the Golden Globe Race for small yachts on September 21, 2018, when his boat THURIYA was rolled and dismasted in 14-meter seas and 70-knot winds about 1,900 miles SW of Perth, Australia in the Southern Indian Ocean. Tomy had a sever back injury and could not move from his bunk. He set off his EPIRB manually, but was unable to cut away the dangerously dangling mast. This set off an international rescue of the French fisheries patrol vessel Osiris underway on September 24, 2018. 4th place competitor Irish skipper Gregor McGuckin was also rescued 30 miles west of Tomy by the Osiris. McGuckin's sailboat was dismasted and was sailing under jury rig. You can see our video about the rescue at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGaL0KdDhXw Hurricane Florence devastated the sailing community in New Bern, North Carolina with its ten-foot storm surge. You will see the destruction to boats in the historic city. You will see how the storm surge broke up the docks in Bridgepoint Marina and hear from a marina tenants Shawn and Shannon Yale of Sailing Banjo whose boat, SV Banjo, rode out the storm successfully on a Mantus Anchor. Many boats were overturned in their stands from the rising storm surge in Duck Creek Marina near New Bern, NC. The C-dock near the Trent River Bridge at Bridgepoint Marina was almost completely destroyed at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent Rivers. Flooding from Hurricane Florence.

Ep. 46: Sailboat Sunk 2 Days Into Dream Cruise when Its Keel Falls Off, Nikki Walsh and Tanner Broadwell Speak to Linus Wilson

Slow Boat Sailing Podcast

Nikki Walsh and Tanner Broadwell bought at $5,000 1969 Columbia 28-foot sailboat to sail around the world. Their trip lasted 2 days. In the end the boat sunk to the bottom of the ocean. They departed Tarpon Springs, Florida. By 9PM on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, their boat was at the bottom of the sea. They were able to save their dog, a dinghy, and their IDs before abandoning ship to a SeaTow. See our video of this at Couple's SAILBOAT Sinks TWO DAYS After Departing When Keel Falls Off | Exclusive Interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7fLn5DItPw The boat lost its keel when they were motoring 2 miles per hour in the John’s channel off Tampa Bay, Florida. The boat filled with water within 10 minutes as water seeped up from the bottom of the boat and rested on the sea floor in 3-feet of water. The next day the boat turned on its side. Tanner said that someone is offering to give them a new boat, but they have started a $10,000 GoFundMe campaign to pay their salvage expenses and buy a new floating home. They estimate the salvage costs at $6,700 and they have no insurance. The 24-year old woman and 26-year old man lost their life savings. The link to that campaign is below:https://www.gofundme.com/new-sailing-lifeThe 49-year old boat had plenty of electronic and paper charts for the area. It only had a 6-horse power outboard for power, which worked until the boat sunk. It is somewhat common for old sailboats to have keel bolts give way and for the keel to fall off if they are not inspected regularly. Nikki and Tanner learned to sail from Tanner’s dad and by sailing on friends’ boats. They bought SV Lagniappe in Fairhope, Alabama near mobile. Tanner and his Dad sailed the boat to Destin, Florida where Nikki sailed the boat to Panama City, Florida. From Panama City, Florida the three people and one dog sailed the 49-year old boat for 3 and a half days offshore to Tarpon Springs, Florida in June 2017. Nikki and Tanner spent $5,000 fixing up the boat until they departed for Key West, Florida in February. They spent one night at anchor before disaster struck and their beloved sailboat sunk, wrecked, and was a total loss. They used to live in Colorado before living aboard their sailboat in Tarpon Springs. One lesson from this disaster and the wreck of the Tanda Malaika, whose captain Dan Govatos was a guest of the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast, is that entering an unfamiliar harbor at night is a bad idea. More cruisers should heed that rule of thumb.https://adventuresofatribe.com/2017/07/23/mayday/Tanner says she idolizes the crew of the YouTube channels Sailing La Vagabonde and Slow Boat Sailing Podcast guests Sailing SV Delos.

It was none other than the SV Sea Nymph abandoned by Jennifer Appel and her crew member Tasha Fuiava nearly 3 to 4 months earlier on October 25, 2017. We discuss the latest revelations from this mysterious disaster at sea. We bring you exclusively the interview of the sailors on the doomed sailors who were criticized by the US Coast Guard for not using her EPIRB. The USCG alleges via the AP that they hailed the Sea Nymph on June 15, 2017, near Tahiti. Ms. Appel told the Today Show that they were no where near Tahiti and her handheld GPS proves that. Linus Wilson was given her handheld GPS track history and analyzed it. It only had two days of data, the last two days prior to the rescue.

Ep. 43: Cruising the Society Islands with Author Nadine Slavinski Interviewed by Linus Wilson

Slow Boat Sailing Podcast

We talk to Pacific Crossing Notes author about cruising the Society Islands of French Polynesia. We talk about the paradise islands of Maupiti, Bora Bora, Tahaa, Raiatea, and Huahine. The Slow Boat crew plans to cruise these Islands in May 2018. https://www.amazon.com/Pacific-Crossing-Notes-Sailors-Coconut-ebook/dp/B00RAD0W30 Linus reads his blog at https://slowboatsailing.wordpress.com/2017/12/08/exclusive-the-last-voyage-of-the-sv-sea-nymph-as-reported-to-the-uscg/ Exclusive: The Last Voyage of the SV Sea Nymph as Reported to the USCG by Linus Wilson Position reports tell the story that the doomed SV Sea Nymph made good less than one nautical mile per hour for a period of 97 days downwind between June 26, 2017, and October 1, 2017. This contradicts the assertion by Jennifer Appel to reporters that her boat could sail four-to-five miles per hour. Ms. Appel submitted these position reports to the US Coast Guard (USCG) on October 27, 2017, in a satellite phone call obtained by Slow Boat Sailing through a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA). There are approximately 2,200 nautical miles between position 18 and 19 on the figure above. According to Ms. Appel, it took her 45-foot sailboat with an upright mast and working rudder 97 days to go that distance. The 31-foot Slow Boatfor example covered 3,500 nautical miles in just 27 days. You can see that trip here.
