When I saw a name like (Norse origin), I thought that it could be related to (Murugan, Kumaran).. then, I checked for its meaning.

I had 3 words in my mind; young, warrior, red/green.

Surprise.. Sven means, "young warrior".


To average people:

30 years of reading books is indistinguishable from genius.

20 years of disciplined investing is indistinguishable from winning the lottery.

10 years of heavy weightlifting is indistinguishable from “steroids.”

Hard Work + Time looks like Luck to the lazy.

2023, Oct-Dec: Ram temple
2024, May: General election

What a timing..! Just like, Balakot airstrike.


"Prime Minister Narendra Modi prostration: PM Narendra Modi today prostrated Lord Shri Ram in Ramlala as he was seated before laying the foundation of Ram temple construction.

On reaching Parliament for the first time in 2014, the PM also worshiped the stairs of Parliament."

Yeah, I remember he did that to Nityananda too

-- User deposits currency notes to this machine
-- Machine checks notes aren't fake, shreds it into pieces, mints equivalent in stablecoins, credits it to the QR code shown by user

Less insulting idea;

-- Read currency note serial number
-- Mark it as "converted"
-- Keep a record of this number in mint transaction; Coinbase to user address

Tagging , because it could be potential on-ramp / gateway drug


Missing a train is only painful if you run after it! Likewise, not matching the idea of success others expect from you is only painful if that’s what you are seeking.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

Stars were forming at an extraordinary rate of about 900 new Suns worth of mass per year in a galaxy (SpARCS1049).

This is over 300x faster than the rate at which our galaxy, the Milky Way, is forming its stars.  (At the rate seen in SpARCS1049, all of the stars in the Milky Way could form in just 100 million years, which is a short period of time compared to our Galaxy’s age of more than 10 billion years.)

Being a founder is hard. Being an early employee is hard. Being a VC is hard. Being a politician is hard. Being an engineer is hard. Being a writer is hard. Being a friend is hard. Being a partner is hard. Being a parent is hard.

It's all hard.

Life is hard, and then you die.

@vjy It can't be a stablecoin unless you provide for converting it in both direction, so you'd have to keep the note. Otherwise you could make a stablecoin by fixing the mining difficulty.

I don't think there's any way to make a decentralized stablecoin.

@freakazoid conversation back to fiat is possible in both shredding & non-shredding methods

There's no difficulty involved here.. only bottleneck is amount of fiat notes the machine can handle

This kind of stablecoin is decentralized, and it isn't affected by inflation

@vjy To be a stablecoin, conversion needs to be at a fixed exchange rate in both directions. In order to be able to support conversion back to fiat at a fixed rate, you have to keep the fiat in reserve. You can't destroy it. Unless you're a central bank of course.

@freakazoid this idea is better than fiat.. so, it's going to be valued more than fiat

It's stablecoin like coin.. if you call it bettercoin / superiorcoin, I don't mind :)

@freakazoid this idea is in public domain now. I'm happy even if somebody else made this machine..
