We've been getting full blocks all day.  Armstrong may be right that a HF in 2017 is too little too late.

wheres brg444 when you need him

full blocks != end of the world

I agree, but it could = the end of this rally. Or every rally from here on out.

so long as the full blocks are temporary so is this effect
and speculation that it's only temporary should further reduce this effect.

the blocks are full, full of crap ... or else fees would be rising, crap doesn't crap for fees.

blocksize will go up when the technology allows for it.

so much concern trolling and wall o' worriers in the face of bullish rise ... algos gonna sniff out 10% gains when the main markets open tomorrow

Bitcoin: distributed decentralized money secured by cowardly miners concentrated in China.  There is no plan or code to switch security measures if they get compromised.

Awesome. This is where I keep my life savings.  I'm a fucking genius.

ignored ... i don't know who has taken over the BJA account but it is clear now your aim is to FUD and stir shit at every turn, big-block war pumping, now something new to pump FUD ... you are an enemy of bitcoin.

here's some nostalgia ... and heads up for those who haven't been through a real bitcoin adoption wave event (AWE) yet.
1066  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: February 20, 2016, 11:09:22 PM
new pump incoming ... the crassic storm of poutrage FUD is just feeding the fire now, driving the vortex from the other side.

Anti-fragile demonstrations have been the biggest drivers for bitcoin price appreciation thus far.

FUD harder lusers, it's working for us now Smiley

A hard fork scheduled a year ahead is fine, it is how satoshi told Gavin to do it but he didn't listen and tried to rush it (for his own nefarious means it seems).

So ;

- from April we get SegWit roll-out, effectively 1.7-2.5MB extension space in blocks
- from July 2017 we get a hard fork to clean up code and up to 4 MB effective extension space
- plus Schnorr multi-sig schemes saving signature space
- plus more payment channel development and integration (Lightning or similar)
- plus fraud proofs to make secure SPV node validation
- plus pruning and UTXO set short-form validation schemes
- plus network sharding, thin-block, IBLT, etc research
- plus probably some sidechains projects come on-line
- plus better off-chain transaction processor third-party auditing (looking at CoinBase, Circle, BitPay and exchanges to become more provably-backed)
- plus innovations noone has seen just yet (e.g. 21.co, random-coder-dude in garage working on THE shit)

Bitcoin doesn't scale?? Get real.

If there is strong community support, the hard-fork activation will likely happen around July 2017.

I was wondering what would be the exact date for the halving... Anyone here knows?
I guess the price should skyrocket just before the halving, that's why I need an exact date

didn't you read the thread at all? ... there is NO exact date.

It happens at block 420,000 which currently is expected some time in mid July.

euuww, I think I just puked in my mouth a little recalling that putrid article ...

What's also crazy, when speaking of delivering epic returns since 2009, Gavin was also the lead dev of Bitcoin during the ATH bubble of 2013!

So yes, I will stay true and reject the pretenders.  I'll stick with Gavin and his future vision for Bitcoin.

gavin was a convenient face of reason to present to the authorities when bitcoin was so alien it should have been banned .... take a look at the code, he was at best a maintainer not an innovator (except for the BIP 70 privacy backdoor he insisted on slipping in), now he's just annoying baggage, like some bloatware, that needs to go the way of Hearn.

he was also the prime mover for setting up of the bitcoin foundation (and primary beneficiary as it squandered millions) ... in all its epic fail.

Then why did you reference gains since 2009 and tell me to stay true, reject the pretenders?  By your own points the current Core devs are the pretenders and have brought nothing but losses.

Perhaps you just said something dumb, that you didn't really think through?


I was gonna ask him the same thing.

that's was just a troll bit to kick things off and get you guys riled up and shooting all over the place, hopefully hitting each other in the process.

I'll stick with Gavin and his future vision for Bitcoin.
Since when kicking the can down the road is a vision?
Increase block size to 2MB, then to 4MB, then to 8MB, then 16MB, then to 32MB, then to... 1GB? Free space on the blockchain for every spammer. That is Gavin's 'vision'...

it ain't free if ya gotta buy bitcoins to write there. That's why we HAD a longterm exponential uptrend. We thought that we were buying 1 /21 millionth of the whole chain to write on so we paid. Now I ain't paying for shit.  I'll never buy another bitcoin unless it's mined in a 2MB block and I'll advise anyone who asks to do likewise. 

good, bye bye, come back when 2MB is ready for you, you can flounce out and make a big drama queen scene wehn you leave but just stfu already, we heard you the hundredth time.

... in the meantime, if anyone was interested bitcoin is embarking on major bull run, 428 broken, 456 is next stop, 480 pause, 500 should fall easily then taking aim for 600-650 region.

You know how the big-block arguments are basically bogus? ... in the end they are appealing to cult of personality (Saint Gavin will save them), because their reasoning and logic is ultimately devoid of adequate substance to base technical decisions upon.

We do not want a war, but by God we will fight it if you give us no choice.  

It's changing a 1 to a 2 for Christ's sake. You wanna burn down the house over that?

No, but apparently you do. War and rumours of war, what is it good for?

There is no split just a small bunch of big-block heads who lost the plot on one number.

Cooler heads will prevail. Price will follow when the big blocks sober up from their delusional power trip.

Bitcoin Core ... delivering epic returns since 2009.

Stay true, reject the pretenders.

... and who increases bitcoin utility?

deadbeats ranting and raving on forums about how terrible all the devs are ... or developers adding features, tools, layers, wallets, protocol extensions?

Only clueless dogs bite the hands that feed them.

rah-de-rah rant-de-rant rah

Core gets no special credit for just doing their damn jobs, especially when they aren't doing them. 

noone gets to tell devs what they can and can't do ... you choose who you follow, the genuine or the charlatans and deceivers

what is your "damned job" (besides ranting on here about how bad core devs are)?

I would even invest/help to create some bitcoin businesses if I knew how much blockspace I could use.  There would be huge potential for title registry/xfer, equities exchanges, smart contracts, etc, but I would need to know what sort of fees I'd be paying and to be certain my transaction wouldn't be locked up for days if I guessed wrong.

You could do all of this on namecoin blockchain for free with as good as security as you'll ever need for these functions ... no, I suspect that your problem isn't that "can't start mah bidness without bigger blocks" ... it's just that your a disaffected trash talker who has found a convenient cause-de-jour to rant about.
1080  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: February 19, 2016, 02:10:22 AM
I would still argue against favoritism in the fee economics..

The reason this was done is 2 fold.. incentivize adoption to segwit and more importantly Reduce UTXO growth.

I will remain distrustful of Core's leadership and their conflicted interest in forcing the settlement layer architecture.

How will bitcoin scale to the mainstream if it didn't act as a settlement layer for the main chain? It certainly cant get far by continually increasing the block side.
We won't ever need to scale if we don't maintain/increase Bitcoin's utility.
