A New Paradigm

By -

Until late 2021, Nvidia was seen as the place to go get GPUs to do crypto mining. Thus, it was tied pretty closely to whatever Bitcoin was doing, with respect to price action. That has changed, as you can see in this layered chart. The new paradigm for Nvidia is now, quite obviously, AI, and it cares not one whit was BTC is doing anymore, as the enormous spread demonstrates.

PREMIUM: Monthly Matters (by Violet)

By -

Preface by Tim: this is the 2,484th premium post ever published on the Slope of Hope website. Historically, premium posts have been invisible to non-premium (that is to say, Gold/Platinum) members. I have done myself no favors because of this, since it would be smarter to at least let their existence be known so that, sooner or later, some of you would want to see what all the fuss is about and go ahead and subscribe yourselves.

It’s actually more work for me to do it this “semi-visible” way, but besides making the premium content’s existence more visible, it should also help make comments more clean and non-segmented. There’s always been a bit of confusion about the two universes of premium and non-premium when it comes to comments, and I think this should eliminate that.

In any case, unless I’m not thinking of a reason to do it the old way, this is going to be The New Way of doing things for premium posts: everyone will see the headline and maybe a couple of sentences, but only Gold/Platinum (and, rare, also Bronze/Silver) folks will actually see the content of the post itself.
