Never Give Machine’s Work to a Human

As Agent Smith points out in the 2000 Movie the Matrix, “Never give machine’s work to a human” for the simple reason that they often cock it up.

This is exactly what happened with the July forecast of Bitcoin Enhanced. The forecast produced a 28% drop in the value of Bitcoin Enhanced. The forecast should never have happened. A human, in this case me, read the signal the wrong way around. Yes, Bitcoin Enhanced can expect to lose forecasts 40% of the time simply because no forecasts are perfect. But this forecast was simple human error.

The learning for myself and Bitcoin Enhanced in general is to code as much as possible for the machines to do their work. That is after all the promise of the blockchain. It has been an important lesson and one well learnt in these still early stages of the project.
