As of the end of Q2, we have converted approximately 75% of our Bitcoin purchases into fiat currency. Conversions in Q2 added $936M of cash to our balance sheet.

Revenue up, margins down, still looks fairly good.
Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

As a result of the fire, a warning for toxic smoke has been issued in the nearby Batesford, Bell Post Hill, Lovely Banks and Moorabool areas, reports The Sydney Morning Herald. Residents were warned to move indoors, close windows, vents and fireplace flues and bring their pets inside.

Here's another incident that happened a bit over a year after the above.

Re: TSLA corporate outlook

Is Tesla using NMC or LFP batteries for the mega packs? I thought one of the large advantages of LFP was thermal stability, just heavier.

They very recently switched over from NCA (presumed, some form of ternary chemistry) to LFP.
