1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How 2MB Bitcoin blocks are even possible? on: March 05, 2018, 10:00:36 AM
Hi,

just a quick question, there is this 1MB blocksize limit in Bitcoin and with SegWit we have effectively a little  more:
Quote
quote after Wikipedia https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Block_size_limit_controversy
Segregated Witness
Move signature data out of the 1 MB block and into a separate witness structure via a softfork, effectively raising the block capacity to 1.4 MB of transactions

So how come it is even possible to have blocks the size of 2MB and more, e.g. https://www.smartbit.com.au/blocks?sort=size ?

Should I understand that the Wikipedia entry is imprecise and the 1.4MB limit should be understood as on average the effective block capacity is 1.4 MB of transactions? And at times it can be 2MB or even more, depending on the transactions to be included?

Thanks for comments.

Hi,

a few months ago I read on coindesk about Mimble Wimble (wow, it is a tongue breaker ... and finger breaker when you try to type it) and instantly I thought YES! It was a great idea. Then once or twice some more news surfaced. But that is it.

Do you guys know any news, any new dates or announcement?

I can't seem to be able to even google their homepage.

It would suck if such a brilliant idea just died....
