It is not unusual to see fairly long periods of nearly 1MB blocks in 2015 and technology has improved in the last two years. The max block size has been in place for ~7 years, and technology has drastically improved since then.

Internet connection speeds have not improved. In the US, the average internet connection speed has been dropping recently due to increased loads due to HD video streaming etc and not enough investment in new infrastructure to counter this.

A big cause of this was many years ago ISP's set up coaxial networks instead of fibre to try and save money, and it's just not economical to rip out the coaxial and replace it with fibre now. Another cause is that in many areas people only have the choice of one ISP. That ISP has a monopoly and has no incentive to invest in a better network as there is no competition. Government regulations prevent new ISP's from setting up in the area.

lol

internet speeds are dropping due HD video streaming?
lol
HD video streaming was not really a thing in 2009 but now its every day used.
meaning internet streaming is now more then possible due to improvements.
EG 56k-> ISDN-> ASDL-> Fibre..
even mobile/cellular has moved on. now we have 5G being in the telecommunications 5 year plan.

im laughing.
whats next tell twitch/youtube and google hangouts to cut their losses because the internet is dead and they wont get more than 7000 users able to cope with livestreaming.

i know people in china, russia, africa, australia urkraine, canada india and thailand that all are NOT crying about the internet.

oh wait let me guess the usual reddit script rebuttle "gigabytes by midnight"
response
dont be a fool, dynamic implementations take a natural growth scaling based on what nodes can cope with.
even blockstream have accepted 8mb is safe but went for 4mb to be ultra safe. (even if that limit wont be utilised due to flaws)

p.s

a 500kbit/s = 37megabyte/10 minutes.
this allow 4mb to be sent 8 times in 10 minutes
a 1mbit/s = 74megabyte/10 minutes.
this allow 4mb to be sent 8 times in 5 minutes
a 2.5mbit/s = 187megabyte/10 minutes.
this allow 4mb to be sent 8 times in 2 minutes

average upload speeds are about 3mbit/s on both landline and 4g cellular.
and thats before even talking about fibre/5g

so get it out of your head that 2mb is bad. thats a very old reddit script


P.S
lol stats of 2011....... dang you really are grabbing the old old OLD reddit scripts

ebeliever

im actually a fan of
diverse open decentralised peer network of multiple brands using consensus..
i just hate blockstream as they are the opposite of all that.

this is why each year blocstreamists try to pigeon hole me into whatever group is their enemy at the time..
but fail to realise the actual issue at hand

you can pretend this year im a BU groupy and next year you can pretend im something else all you like, but all or doing is sticking your head in the sand to the real issue.

P.S
blockstream wont last long.
$70m in debt and already their 'founders' are planning their exit strategy.
matt corolla got away first. now with chaincode labs

hint, if he was a founder of a $70m business. why leave.
hint, its $70m debt that needs returns, not profit... and times running out for them..

so think long and hard about what you are protecting..
start protecting bitcoin and its diverse open decentralised peer network of multiple brands using consensus..

not the blockstreamist group that is temporary because soon enough you wont have them to snuggle up with

blockstream script
1: "blockstream will avoid a hard fork because consensus need to be met by majority users, to avoid drama but a segwit solution thats empty of its promises wont get consensus"
2: "blockstream will avoid a hard fork because without consensus the only option is to split the network. without blockstream having majority, blockstream loses"
3: "splits are bad"
4: "anything not blockstream sanctions must split away so that blockstream rules supreme and wants a tier network"
5: "send out the deadlines, make manditory threats, make PoW crushing changes, do all you can to make blockstream kings


meanwhile other implementations just run for years letting the community decide or not decide in their own time, no threat no demands no destructive banning/splitting mechanisms. because non-blockstream implementations want a diverse decentralised open level playingfield PEER network

wake up to who the mafia is.. hint the ones with the demands and desires of a tier network
4385  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin implants? on: April 07, 2017, 01:40:23 AM
Reminds me of those news stories about h4x0rs stealing wireless credit card data from people on the street.



An implant would probably be the most convenient and fastest way to pay for things.

But perhaps like 2MB block sizes, the fast and convenient way, isn't always the best.

but if the only thing being transmitted from the device is a signed tx  (emphasis no privkey)
then it ends up being safer then a credit card
4386  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Well, well, well, now we know what Jihan Wus been up to. on: April 07, 2017, 01:36:51 AM
they would not be pushing for the max block size to be lowered

luke JR wants 0.5mb blocks.. just to correct you a little

Bitcoin has just been diagnosed with ass cancer we need to be ready to take cemo.

hardware efficiency has been around for 2 years+
segwit for 6 months

and one month ago Gmaxwell realises that going soft has setbacks that can only be remedied by giving in and finally doing a node consensus upgrade (allowing an opportunity to add features properly)
OR
pretend the hardware manufacturers went back in time and created segwit cancer.. before segwit was part of bitcoin, before segwit was even planned to go soft.
and then decide to not do a node consensus to add features properly and that would include dynamics... but do a node consensus to mandatorily add soft segwit with its glitches and a pool asic nuke..

it just makes no sense!!

but i am laughing at gmaxwells illogic to try playing the victim card rather than man up and do something the whole community would finally want

OMG, is making a bot to reply a thing?  I would totally do that to you shills if I knew how LOL

not knowing how just reveals your lack of coding talent. thus you have just gone and made yourself redundant to any topic about code discussions

have a nice day though

The Bitcoin network has ass cancer and its name is Jihan Wu.

I use to think the fake transactions mining pools in chain were creating were to push a false narrative for larger blocks but maybe I was wrong.
Mining pools are using fake transactions to boost efficiency somehow.

"fake transactions to boost efficiency"....

just done some quick maths


* stats at time of post

hmm
looks like BTCC and F2pool are the ones making more blocks than their hash %
not the other way round

*for those wishing to question the numbers

antpool being bad guys is DEBUNKED
antpool would have over 40% of blocks with of the 4 pools selected while only having mid 35% hash of the 4 pools selected if they were playing funny games.
in short BTCC are actually solving more blocks then expected.. not antpool.


next
oh the fake tx's to push the need for a feature..
https://blockchain.info/charts/mempool-count?timespan=1year
note the spikes.. one quick drama period in june july..
and then prolonged spikes after october..

hmmm now what proposals needed to be pushed through during those dates..
oh yea, csv in june/july.. and segwit after october.
seems like its the blockstreamists that wanted to create mempool drama to persuade people to think their features were needed... the timing cannot lie

hmm whats next
oh, segwit getting 50% mining signallying a couple days ago which people assume is guaranteed rise in flagging... well
even f2pool was good enough to have morals to admit something
meanwhile bitcoins segwit 31% block flagging is only temporary due to a hack expect it to drop back down below 30% in the next fortnight

tl;dr Bitmain is ripping off the network by secretly faking proof of work, and blocking segwit because it will stop their rent-seeking strategy of covert cheating.

So the blocks that Bitmain creates are fake by the Bitcoin protocol standards? Wow.
Congratulations, you've reached a new low in lying.

Nobody said Bitmain blocks are fake.  Your lack of understand is confusing you.

Try reading the entire GMAX post, if you can handle the deep dive and want to learn about exactly where/how/why Bitmains's (fake) PoW becomes real blocks.

Or if you want to remain casual, the Medium article I quoted is an excellent walk-through for the less technical.


"fake "pow"
sorry but tha SHA's work
they calculate fine.

whats next
libsecp256k1's validation is fake validation.

whats next
go further back in history and claim ATI's GPU effiency is fake compared to Geforces less efficient gpu mining. dueing the GP hash race of 2011-2013

whats next call anything created prior to segwit an exploit /intentional attack on segwit, even if that older item was built way before segwits existence. rather than admit gmaxwell only realised  last month that segwits soft bypass ran into an issue. and the only solution to get around it is to finally have a usernode consensus upgrade afterall..

but hell no
gmaxwel proclaims jihan went back to 2015 made an asic specifically to target software that months later was only theory and 2 years later was not even activated


4392  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: bitmain and asicboost/segwit on: April 06, 2017, 11:55:06 PM
quoting vays..(facepalm)
the guy that announced he doesnt program and doesnt even hold much bitcoin
try someone better next time


asics have been around longer than segwit, even longer than Luke JR announcing to use the anyonecanspend opcode exploit to go soft...

if segwit runs into a hurdle in feb 2017 you cant blame hardware made in 2015.. the UN-ACTIVATED segwit software thats just been created obviously didnt take hardware efficiencies into account..

(unless asic manufacturers had a time machine to go back to make an exploit before segwit was coded purely to screw with segwit 2 years later)

the truth is that gmaxwell only found a segwit issue last month.. and realised segwit cant function if efficient asics are running. but...
instead of admitting segwit had an issue and the only remedy is a user node consensus update(HF) to not need 2 merkles.. instead he wants to call asics the exploit..(facepalm)

makes me laugh

come on laugh with me
how can a hardware manufacturer make an intentional exploit attack in 2015 for software only released late 2016.

much simpler answer is gmaxwell only found a segwit flaw last month and is now pointing fingers

These same guys RUSH to post first in every thread all day long pushing the same agenda no matter how hard they have to spin it, and then expect anyone to believe they are not paid shills.  Roll Eyes

^ who shout out shill as the only respend are the same guys that have no actual content to add... bar calling people shills..

sounds like whistles in the wind to me.

maybe i made a good killing on bitcoins in 2012 have my own business and gives me time to travel and do as i please. and while stuck on a plane train or hotel i see whats going on this forum and sort out the misinformation of the centralists that want to nuke the diverse open decentralised peer network so they can have their corporate TIER network to control things and be able to position themselves to make funds from things like LN hubs to repay the $70m+ DEBT that is due by them soon

You shills crack me up  Cheesy

if your only rebuttle is to call someone a shill. may i suggest you just make a bot that justs pastes the word "shill" into your posts
or.
take off your defender hat, think logically, have a cup of coffee allow tim for your thought to gather and think of a suitable reply that has some content/substance that can actually refute some stuff.

otherwise your wasting your own time even replying just to shout "shill"

4395  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitmain, segwit, HF and extension blocks on: April 06, 2017, 10:47:35 PM
segwit done as a SF means 2 merkles

segwit done as a HF means 1 merkles

by segwit going soft segwit is not compatible with efficient hardware. which is a flaw caused by 6month old software called segwit.. not 2year old asic hardware.
no one can pretend that asic manufacturers read segwit code in october 2016 and then went back in time to 2015 to make a chip to then attack software that wont be active until 2017.. (that's a ridiculous notion)

in short segwit screwed up thinking they could slide in a change by using a 'anyonecanspend' soft exploit in code and by making 2 merkles to not need nodes to upgrade. thus making core reign supreme by being the only codebase that can validate fully as upstream filters of a network.
(their real goal of being top of a tier network instead of just one amongst many of an equal one level peer network)


but now realise segwit wont work if efficient hardware is used, and core wont back down and just do a full node consensus update where only one merkle is needed
because that then removes their real power play agenda of their tier network. and means because needing to do a node consensus also means they 'could' also add dynamics at same time.. they definitely want to refuse to do a node consensus version

so instead they call old 2year old hardware the problem rather than their own un-activated 6month old software the problem
4396  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: it is Core, not Bitman blocking segwit on: April 06, 2017, 10:29:21 PM
I disagree. The use of the ASICBoost mechanism prevents improvements to
the Bitcoin network. It is not an optimization of the mining process. In fact, it
uses a short cut or loophole.When GPUs became ASICs that is somewhat acceptable,
since that was a true optimization in technology.ASICBoost exploits a failing in PoW
which creates non-mining and far reaching problems for the community.

It is one thing to create new mining devices to beat your competitors, its another to
find "zero-days" which could be used to beat your competitor as well as prevent
further expansion of the bitcoin code in ways that even Satoshi envisioned.


prevent improvements?

seriously..!!
then gmaxwell should could program new code that does work. rather than be adement that the code should not change one bit but hardware should..

blaming hardware is no excuse for sloppy code.
especially when the code doesnt live up to ANY of its promises anyway.

i can think of many ways to fix it in software but after dealing with his snobbery last year where it took a good 6 months for him to accept the issue was an issue and then without admission change a few things round.. screw it if im gonna help him again
4397  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: bitmain and asicboost/segwit on: April 06, 2017, 10:19:47 PM
Well they say they don't use it, but then why would they implement asicboost in their production hardware and have firmware available to use it if they weren't going to use it?

who gives a crap if they use it or not.

the hardware existed before segwit.

much like ATI and Geforce existed before bitcoin
if bitcoin2010-2013 suddenly had an update that caused issues with ATI cards.. where GPU mining was only possible on inefficient Geforce cards, blame the software update. not ATI

people would have laughed if someone made a software update to bitcoin and set the bitcoin software to become active later on but then realised before even being active the software wont work with ATI... but still devs pretend ATI is exploiting/attacking bitcoin.

there would be no logic in that madness

4398  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Well, well, well, now we know what Jihan Wus been up to. on: April 06, 2017, 10:09:26 PM
im laughing

hardware that has existed for 2 years has good efficiency boosts..

software that has only been publicly ready 6 months and yet to be in active use...

and gmaxwell thinks the hardware is the problem.

gmaxwell where were you in 2011 , you would probably want to nuke ATI for being more efficient then Geforce. and then blame ATI for some software bug your team didnt pick up on that wasnt ATI compatible.

calling ATI an exploiter/attacker.. rather than admit the software cant do its job right if people want to use ATI GPU's back then
serious snobbery from Gmaxwell

if segwit cant do its job because of a asi effiency boost.. then re-do segwit, while at it, make the code user dynamic to not need dev's to be king overlords
4399  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: it is Core, not Bitman blocking segwit on: April 06, 2017, 10:00:39 PM
Bitmain in their recent statement admitted that there chips have ASICBoost
built in, but have not used them on the main chain. Are you calling Bitmain
timetravelers then? Obviously not. This means they had them for a longer
time than people assumed.
what i mean is asicboost is not a "segwit attack/exploit"
asicboost is just an efficiency gain.. end off..

its greg denying his bad code, by using his snobbery to hide that his code is just not compatible with hardware of 2 years ago

When SegWit was released, Bitmain and it's pool, Antpool, did not yet know
that the Coinbase reference is added to with anchor codes. When they learned
it did, they likely began to oppose SegWit on those grounds secretly but
declared publicly it was because there would be no 2MB blocks.

so they said no to segwit because they knew segwit had a incompatibility bug with efficient hardware..
EG like saying you cant use bitcoin with an ATI GPU in 2011, because of an issue that was added in code in 2011 that only works with geforce GPU's

do you blame ATI or the code writers for not making mining easy.
4400  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: it is Core, not Bitman blocking segwit on: April 06, 2017, 09:48:33 PM
Using ASICBoost prevents many forms of development that helps
scaling and non-scaling issues. It is potentially more serious
than anything else currently.

asic boost has been around longer.
easy fix.. make software that doesnt hurt the hardware.. not the other way round.


cant blame the hardware of 2 years ago for software problems of 6 months go

thats like saying ATI exploited bitcoin by being better at GPU mining in 2011-2013 compared to Geforces poor efforts

that like blaming raspberry Pi1 for not validating signatures fast, and so libsecp256k1 had to be invented because raspberry Pi was attacking bitcoin
