Are NSA XT altcoin supporters happy now? Not yet? Crash was not so big as expected?

now that the covert surveillance agenda of XT has been laid bare, heck shall we just go ahead and call it espionage in the probability that these guys actually work for lawful governments? Maybe LE enticing people to run spyware is entrapment even if it is open source?

Looks like XT is a piece of shady bullshit. What will be in the next version ? Direct reporting to NSA ?


confirmed, totally shady.

I have had my suspicions about Gavin for a long time, CIA visit (no transcript), CFR talk, the CA/TLS payment protocol privacy leak but this is damning if he wants to sign off on this shit. And the way the XT panopticoin fork is being pitched reads like a bad infomercial.

Never trust an Aussie, Gavin, you just made it onto my blacklist (and it is quite short).

You guys cheering thermos' censoring of the thread is just sad.

You do understand that just because you silence others that does not make their ideas magically go away, and it does not make you right.

But you always had a losing argument, must feel nice to have the thread censored to get you off the hook of having to continue to defend obvious nonsense.

You guys pulled the nuclear option and deleted/sanitized all discussion you disagree with from /r/bitcoin and bitcointalk.org. If you have to resort to that it always means you are on the wrong side.

So bask in your assumed victory now that there is no one left to question you. It's going to be a short lived one.

Nobody I can think of advocated censoring or sterilizing anything.  For all we know cypherdoc himself picked up his ball and went home.



You're  still as stupid ever and willing to throw loose  allegations around like vomit.

You're still going to lose because of all your unethical tactics.

... and here comes the compromised shill to lecture others on ethics. Have you no shame?

XT is compromised, you can say that again. Things got more leaks than a rusty old bucket, it's been designed that way.
1445  Other / Off-topic / Re: What can I do now the Gold Collapsing, Bitcoin UP thread is censored by thermos on: August 19, 2015, 05:09:28 AM
For over 3 years I regularly followed the Gold Collapsing, Bitcoin UP thread, and it was a major component of my bitcoin fix.

Now that thermos locked it down because people were obviously going to discuss [REDACTED] and thermos did not like the results of the poll on [REDACTED], I am feeling lost. I need my Gold Collapsing, Bitcoin UP fix and just can't find it anywhere else.

Who says that cypherdoc himself didn't lock it.  If so, are you still going to be his tag-a-long friend?



frapp.doc prefers hand-licking poodles, little ones that jump-up a lot ... and sometimes mock rut his leg especially.

If bitcoin gets backed by the NSA is this bullish?

it looks like BS nothing to substantiate it. I think the dump has to do with theymos locking threads that talk about why we need bigger blocks defining talk about bitcoin with bigger blocks off topic, here, on bitcoin.org and on r/bitcoin.

https://www.reddit.com/r/bitcoinxt/comments/3hil8h/bitcoindev_bitcoin_xts_tor_ip_blacklist/

it's why they want as much as possible on-chain in huge blocks only few can maintain/parse. It's a financial dragnet wet dream. Only gubmint stooges can wreck a good thing so wantonly because they only give a damn about control not betterment ...

it's probably CIA.

more bullish is if the Hearn-Andresen PanoptiCoin social attack gets rekt. and btc earns extra kudos as independent money.

feels a lot like the action on the silk road take down flash crash (which began the major 2013 major leg up), like market is waiting for some "news" to flush out the last of the weak hands before hitting major bull mode ... and $161 on finex is now double bottom no?

Really, for Bitcoin to go mainstream, it would have to be a lot more noob-friendly than it is now.
I honestly don't see my dad even using blockchain.info to pay for pizza or whatever.

Whew. I'm really tired of hearing this old chestnut.
Why do you say this stuff?
I think tv sets will never go mainstream coz they're way too complicated for people to understand.



... pizza will never go mainstream, it's just too hard to understand how you make the round dough and why the crust doesn't burn before the cheese melts.
1453  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin is Becoming a Global Currency on: August 18, 2015, 03:20:39 AM
I think it stands no chance to become a sort of global currency, because of the bandwith and storage limitations of the nodes. Perhaps all the cryptocurrencies together can achieve this, but not bitcoin by itself.

All you super-optimistic guys should also take a look from an engineering perspective, in my opinion. Every transaction needs let's say 200 bytes, which need to be propagated across the whole network, and then permanently stored on the blockchain. This is not for free and has it's limits. Today it can handle 7 transactions per second at most, imagine what millions of transactions per second would do to it.


Yes, every transaction takes around 200 bytes but not every transaction has to be broadcast or permanently stored on the blockchain. Only those transactions that can afford the full security of the blockchain should be broadcast. Millions of valid bitcoin transactions per second can take place without being broadcast to the bitcoin settlement network but only disputed transactions and final settlements need to afford the full security of blockchain arbitration.

... kind of sad seeing some of the herd get spooked into the banksters XT fork trap but Hearn has been a divisive sociopath from the day he showed up, so expelling him might be the upside to the inevitable costs of the mess him and Andresen are now intent on creating
1455  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: August 16, 2015, 12:26:18 AM

if public gets notice of this fork-thing we could easily go double digits.

We are just waiting for the conclusion of the debacle, then MOON!


you're an idiot if you think Hearn is taking you to the moon ... he's the lead engineer on the train to the gulags.
1456  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: August 16, 2015, 12:12:40 AM
Looks like Hearn's bankster-buddy handlers at Circle want to buy lower so they pushing hard for the PanoptiCoin and extended bitcoin turmoil.
1457  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If bitcoin ever goes mainstream on: August 11, 2015, 10:54:00 AM
The inequality on the distribution of wealth is astonishing, even if that graphic only takes in account financial assets and not material goods, including small enterprises, land and houses.

Anyway, bitcoin won't contribute to a more equitable world, on the contrary.

That wasn't my point.

But since you raise it, if the mainstream entered bitcoin (with their paltry 29% of the wealth) before the 0.111% and then refused to trade with the 0.111% in anything but bitcoin then bitcoin would indeed contribute massively to balancing the inequity in global monetary holdings.

You have been given a tool, a new weapon in an age old struggle, it is up to all of us to choose how to use it.

1459  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: [announce] Namecoin - a distributed naming system based on Bitcoin on: August 06, 2015, 10:30:23 AM
I hope most people who are interested in namecoin are aware that one mining pool has a majority control over the namecoin network... f2pool now controls 75% of the hashrate of namecoin. The significance of this should be readily apparent.

... this outcome maybe the inevitable result of the economic incentives due to merge-mining. And a lesser degree due to poor code-base maintenance.
We need to get one or better two of the large Bitcoin pools to merge mine Namecoin. Hopefully the new Namecoin Core, branched off current Bitcoin, will help. IIRC somebody is working on a tutorial on how to set up merged mining.

Also if we could get more users/supporters and the price would rise this would probably be solved quickly.


My point being an unmaintained, merged-mine coin basically costs more than it is worth, to more and more mining pools until there is only one and then ....
Are you sure about that (emphasis mine)?  Have you taken a look at Namecoin Core in the last couple of months?

I think I was next person after you to build it ... and build/test it regularly, so far, so good. NB: reducing feature set by removing "Manage Names" from namecore-qt whenever the upgrade officially takes place will reduce demand of nmc.

Mostly I was referring to the fragmented nature of the previous versions 0.3.50 and 0.3.80, scattered packaging and unmergeable code forking branches.
