Excellent example with the chickens to demonstrate how automation can reduce costs for real world production changes. I see what you mean there and agree it's going to be a revolution from our current prouduction methods.
I've not really tried trading since my early days in Bitcoin. I'm a degen gambler and its easy for me to get addicted to markets. That being said I just found lnmarkets and have been interested in getting started again. Paired with @v4vapp's lnd.v4v.app, it'd be an easy way for me to use Hive to fund some trades so I'm on the fence about trying it again.
