Thoughts of the Day

  • In a sovereign blockchain currency, we can use bonds or shares for the same currency as over-collateral to issue loans in the same currency, effectively creating new money supply and demand for that currency in the future.

  • Slightly optimized some Ferrite benchmark code written by others. For more serious optimizations, they need to be done in the Ferrite implementation itself. But I'm still not sure when I'll have time to do it.

  • Bought a Withings BPM Connect blood pressure monitor to monitor my blood pressure. Since getting back from vacation, my blood pressure has mostly return to "normal", which around 130/85. More checks are still needed, and I hope I won't get diagnosed with stage 2 hypertension.

  • Went for follow up medical check up on my tinnitus symptoms. Seems like I have no more tinnitus, either thanks to the 2-week vacation I had or to the cortisol infusion I was given.
