I suspect that someone who offers a free service that could potential make people a ridiculous amount of money has some hidden agendas. I am learning more and more about data and how websites might actually be more interested in the data (using HTTP cookies) that they could get from people who are looking to catch that next GET RICH QUICK idea.
Something that I have learned recently from Scott Scheper (Founder, Vice Chairman & CMO of The XYO Network) is that we produce more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data, every single day. Talk about mind blow huh?
With the way that Cookies can operate all over the internet, website can totally dip into a small portion of the 2.5 quintillion bytes of day that we are producing every single day. That is a lot of data and it can go to the highest bidder. the highest bidder wouldn’t even have to be very high with that much data available.
Honestly I am not sure why people would want to develop and operate a website that doesn’t actually add value to the people that they are hoping will interact with the website. But it happens all the time and just because it doesn’t make any sense to me doesn’t mean that they aren’t entitled to do what ever it is that they want to do.
Fair warning to anyone who is looking into cloud mining, be sure to find a reputable source that you can verify that it is actually profitable or at least has some kind of value. From what I can see that is what block chain is about. taking away the need for trust and becoming transparent. It it isn’t transparent and you are just hoping that it works out, then like they say “ if it is too good to be true then it probably is”
