Of course, the world has not yet seen a blockchain that has been battle-tested, that does not reward the maintainers in a native token. So there's that. What's the incentive?

Unless someone solves this problem in the realm of game theory, it is impossible.  This is one of the absolute foundational pillars for the stability of bitcoin the removal of which would create a sort of 2 legged stool.

...
Will there be a mass realization that blockchain without bitcoin is just a slow, shitty database? How long will this realization take?
...
I wonder about that, too. Most crypto people I know from meat space think some "newer, better" coin will supersede bitcoin, yet most don't know how bitcoin or any of the alts actually work.

What they also don't get is that if bitcoin was replaced by something newer, more shiny (assuming such a thing would exist), then not only would bitcoin be pointless but also the new shiny coin, and every next shiny coin down the line.

It's either bitcoin, hooks into bitcoin, or it's a parasite sucking on bitcoins success.


As data grows so does network capabilities and data communications

This was inherently known in the building of bitcoin.

Mathematically at some point the blockchain will be a see all and do all at any point in time instantly for any app based tool.

So far so good

blockchain.info

check out your wallet address balance

you gotta beat the bitcoin blockchain test base (9years, hacked to the nth degree - no success) before anything will supercede bitcoin

and the wealthy know it



The currency war continues

Flood with alt shitcoins - The new USD coin/ripple/bcash/ethereum (centralized crap)

and get peeps movin a way from the gold

It's not just food that matters, humans have a psychological need for space as well. The more people there are, the more we end up like Calhouns rats - dying from a lack of reproduction, even when the numbers start to drop after major dieoffs. The rodents never recovered, who is to say that we will?

I don't disagree. Let's start with the 2-child-max-per-couple rule and enforce that first.

Or a prohibition to breed if you have an IQ less than XYZ

In before:

Or a prohibition based on race.


I could house 50 billion people in one of those big deserts.

Not only that, Energy, Water and food

Everyone gets a huge 4 bedroom apartment, with centralized farming on the ground and outer levels with solar energy galore, pumping desalinated water from the ocean to feed billions.


Ohh and terra form the planet to how we like, with Apartment trees I can replace desert with vegetation

What do we think of the Georgia Guidestones?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Guidestones

Whoever conceived this crap should  put their money where their mouths are and start by ending their own cancerous existence.
What are your specific objections?

This:
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

If we're talking Logan's Run type culling bullshit, then good luck with that.

Where does fresh water come from. sometimes you need a gun...
Drinking water comes from human labor today. We can't drink directly from the local creek like we used to.

And one thing we really are running out of is fish. If the descriptions of early american explorers and settlers are to be believed, we have maybe 1% of 1% of what used to live in the sea. If we go much further then most of it is not coming back.


Agree, not to say any of these things are not happening, actually the opposite, they are happening by design

Ecology, sustainability and environment issues were well known over 50 years ago, even 50000 years ago

Do you think anybody has actually done anything?





...."What do we think of the Georgia Guidestones?"....


It is being fully implemented and it is not what the stone says that will be implemented but a New World Order that will create what the stone says.

Piss off Hulk!

Spoiler Alert if you havent seen Infinity Wars stop reading now.

  You absolutely sucked ass in Infinity Wars.  You didn't even show up for the fight; tossed aside like yesterday's compostable rubbish!   I have lost all respect for you.  You're nothing but a green pansy... or maybe a periwinkle.  I cant imagine anyone cares what Hulk like after that pathetic display.



I find infinity wars SUPER good .... didn’t thought i would like dr strange after his movie....
and they Just kept all of the best from Hulk for the next one  Grin
Now throw in Hulk throwing the bear and Where back fine as iT was

 Overall i have to agree it was an awesome movie.  I want to see it in 3D too!





Hulk Sad

best part was the first question

How does the blockchain differ from traditional database?


Shared transparent authorised data across platforms and the globe (Exciting, Very exciting was the term)

Bitcoiners know this, Tech people know this, Banks know this


And thus adoption is born

But when do we get full adoption? Soon

So Forbes magazine spent all of 2016 and 2017 (two fucking years!) writing articles slamming Bitcoin. Calling it a complete fraud and a scam.

Now they come out with this:
https://www.forbes.com/sites/investor/2018/04/30/bitcoin-is-the-new-flight-capital/#1bded4873209

I'm seriously left wondering what angle they are now playing with this.   Huh


The same as always

On one hand we say this (Fear/Despise)

On the other hand we say that (Speculation/Accumulation)

When the time is right, we will tell you what to do - (Buy)

On the other hand we say this (Fear/Despise - SELL)

Rinse and repeat

Technical analysis can only get us so far.  We need the power of positive thought to give us the momentum which will propel us to higher levels!  I've been saving (and tweaking) this for a while now waiting for the $10k celebration but I think we need this now.  C'mon on everyone, think positively!  Think $10k.  Now say it with me - boom.

If EOS (or the other competitor) convinces people into using their platform rather than using ETH, ETH will die.

Same can happen to bitcoin too *god forbid* if bcash succeeds.  Grin

When has that ever happened, that new, technologically more advanced and efficient products replace the old ones in some industry? Wink


Huh?

EOS replace the system it is built on - Ethereum

Did i miss something?

EOS is not based on ETH. The initial coin distribution is handled through ERC20. This ends after mainnet. This is the reason why EOS will hype most in this year. If the distribution cycle ends in july, then that is it, no more new coins. This will fomo the crap out of the market before launch.


Again when is EOS not built on Ethereum, just trying to understand?


ERC20 is a technical standard used for smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain for implementing tokens.




EOS doesn’t exist “yet”.  

EOS mainnet launch is 2 June 2018.  Until then, they are pumping the shit out of it, including moving to delegated proof of stake with only 21 validation nodes.  It is “fee free” as EOS is inflationary. About 2% of the monetary base is generated each year and goes to the validators.  

EOS doesn’t exist “yet”.

Its all good and well, I am happy to understand this EOS you all talking about.

I am seriously having a hard time in getting the point.

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/eos/#markets

As you can tell by this existent EOS on coinmarketcap

help?

Saw a man today (around 45-50) in Phuket riding a Harley wearing a cap with bitcoin logo on it. He had a young chick in the back, aged maybe around 20y. Wonder if he's someone from the forum Smiley

My role model.

Thailand probably frightens me more than it should. My carcerophobia kicks in just thinking about it.


That's a very good point. Maybe being multimillionaire can help avoiding that risk there?. Donno.

The weather also doesn't look very good with a crazily high humidity most of the year?

It looks like the good points are, so far: Basically cheap everything (including young women girls). Not cold in the winter which is a plus even if rain and humidity ruins it somehow.

Probably I am oversimplifying as I have never been there. Just armchair opinion.


Not necessarily: The secret life of Alexandre Cazes, alleged dark web mastermind

Thailand is currently under Marshal Law

The military is in control.

Very peaceful though

Main attitude is we have so many neighbours we have to be friendly

Infrastructure is complete shit, broken roads, footpaths, electricity etc

Dirty as well

People are great

Set a goal in life, figure out how much money you need to do it, and stick to the plan.

When bitcoin breaks 10k again I'm moving to Thailand to become a full-time monger.

Well I for one do believe that we will see USD 1M within five years.
And I still believe we will se USD 80k end of year.

Thanks for answering. C'on people don't be shy and express your feelings about it.

10 years is too soon.  $1 million in 12 years - after 3 halvenings.  

based on s curve and wave adoptions mathematically the next wave is

2013 $100
2014 $1000
2017 $10000
2018 $100000
2021 $1000000
2022 $10000000

I imagine anywhere from now and onwards BTC could simply be replaced or saturated with other markets

resulting in a cap somehwere
