So if there is a limit to the number of bitcoins mined, who set that limit?
Wouldn't one of these new AI Multiple-Qbit super computers blow away any traditional mining computer and solve the block in a matter of seconds, scooping up and hoarding Bitcoins?
If you are active within government contracting you have probably run across the acronym “NAICS,” or more specifically a NAICS code. You may know that only certain NAICS codes are applicable to your company, but really, what are NAICS codes? What do they do?
NAICS stands for the North American Industry Classification System, which was developed under the direction of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). It was created to help agencies collect, analyze and publish statistical information related to various types of industries within the United States’ economy. And from the perspective of a government procurement officer, that is why NAICS codes are important. However, as a vendor interested in doing business with the government, NAICS codes are important in other ways. If you would like to view some of the information derived from these NAICS codes analyses, you should visit this Bureau of Labor Statistics site.
A NAICS code is assigned to every opportunity issued from a federal agency, thus allowing these opportunities to be tracked for future research, allowing prospective vendors to more easily identify potential opportunities. The codes can also provide an indication as to whether the opportunity will be a good fit for your company if the opportunity’s description or solicitation is vague. Additionally, these codes play a large role in reviewing federal opportunities because they determine your business’s size, as determined by your procurement officer – essentially determining whether your company will be considered a small or large business for each possible opportunity.
