some of these layer-2 projects are rapidly approaching ... giving me goosebumps to see the new financial system take place before our eyes, it's amazing what open source permissionless platform allows. Banksters must be just agape when watching this techno-wizardy appear out of seemingly nowhere that makes their pathetic historic IT systems and current 'blockchain' BS look thoroughly pedestrian and mediocre.

"The whole lightning network can be implemented in about 100 lines of Rootstock code" ... whoa!

NB: this is some dense material but it all looks legit and serious heavy-duty protocols that can deliver huge benefits to bitcoin utility

^^ you are assuming that adamstgBit is not lampchop ... or facilitating lambchop by selectively neglecting moderation, maybe someone paid adamstgBit to allow miscreant shitlords to run amok here whenever they felt like it? He does seem to wallow in the swine muck they regularly serve up, like he's benefiting from it or somehow or another.

"double up or quit"...so you're saying you missed the boat too, and now you're trying to get him to bail you out?  Tongue

Are you familiar with the new disruptive technology we like to call DAO? The DAO--an acronym for Distributed Autonomous Organization--is similar to an open venture capital fund based on Ethereum smart contracts, and you know what else? Everyone can purchase DAO voting shares, even you Smiley

Have you ever seen what happens when "everyone who can buy shares gets to vote"?

... capitalism by committee isn't pretty. I cannot wait for the drama and hilarity that may be coming out of the DAO, not sure if it will be a $118 million comedy though.

They might come up with such design, but that won't change the attitude of governments. Armstrong is correct, history indicates the elite is mad when the money is gone and there is no other source but need to collect it from the society. They will make the anonymous BTC an illegal instrument and will enforce the law on operation system or even hardware level. 95% of the users use commercial OS, and therefore it will be a piece of cake for the government to ban all anonym cryptos when the time is right.

You're dreaming, and it's actually a particularly dystopian nightmare too.

There is no technical way these unnamed, shady, all-powerful 'elites' can achieve what you claim. You must not understand how computers or networks work to make such grandiose, rubbish claims about the omnipotence of government. Or it is really is your dream, in which case, fuck right off.

This DAO thing is a total pyramid that is going to cause all kinds of crap to go flying in cryptocurrencies when it it blows up.

Sneaky Gavin Wood is quietly leaving out the side door before someone screams FIRE and the whole CONfidence game implodes.

"... until computers are built from something other than matter and occupy something other than space".

Qbits exploit weird quantum effects like one atom being able to be in two places at the same time. The qbits in a quantum computer occupy something strange that might be considered "other than space". Existing in two places at the same time is a departure from the standard three dimensions of space we all know.

Photons, which can be used for qubits, are massless particles and have no volume. Hence, I assume, where the "built from something other than matter and occupy something other than space" comes from. However, you can implement quantum computers with particles which do have mass and volume, so his point is invalid.

The argument is based on minimum amount of energy required to flip a bit, quantum computers would effectively be violating Second Law of Thermodynamics because of Landauer's principle ... also known as the Landauer limit.

shorts capitulating ... multiple failed sell down attempts are getting too costly, they'll retreat higher shortly.

So less than 10k blocks ~60 days until halving reward. Here's anothers thoughts.

At this point, miners will be maximally hoarding coins in expectation of having to supplement their decreased btc income post-halving with saved coins. On this assumption miners will only be releasing those coins that they absolutely need to for covering exactly mining expenses, what does this mean? This means that the current actual btc issuance rate onto the market is very close to the cost of production. Further, let's assume that bitcoin pricing is being set at the margin by these fresh coins such that average cost of production is now then reflected very close to current market price. Which is backed up by the lack of success shorts are having bashing down prices very much at all, since it is hard up against the floor of production costs already.

But here's the kicker, if cost of production is being reflected as ~$450 and rising, I'd suggest that by the time halving arrives, and if shorts keep bashing price down such that there is no excess speculation baked in, then price will double within 6 months after halving. So $500-600 by halving and rising to at least twice that 6-12 months after halving is possible under this scenario.

Some of this was good for bitcoin to go through some of this, and to come out stronger, and hopefully recognizing various potential coupe attempts without going along with the various bullshit fakeries.

Wow that looks like a really good chart right? Looks like the price has been 'breaking out' for over a month as it nudges closer and closer against resistance. Sentiments have been tremendously universally bullish for months as bitcoin makes headlines all over the news and the chart looks just like 2012 right before the 2012 halving. Every thread on the forum is positive and predicts the level of the next rise. Meanwhile, CHINA is still the market leader. What could go wrong, right? The BFX order book bids are paper thin and BFX longs are maxxed out at 32M. Each time this margin level was reached in the past was when bulls were buying in to what looked like a big breakout (such as in July 2014) but inflected into the next decline instead. I'd say there is a distinctive chance of another decline to the 300s before any meaningful rise. I'm not betting anything on that though.
