People notice your name because you keep posting the SAME bullshit over and over, again and again, hour after hour, day after day, on and on and on...

rebut the technicals then..
actually try

if all you can do is insult. then save yourself the time and use it to learn bitcoin.

i dont kiss ass because i care more about bitcoins 120+ lifespan, than i do about some temporary guys that may move on, get old and retire or join hyperledger in a few months-years.

if all you care about the blockstream devs, and not the technicals of bitcoin itself. your missing the point of bitcoin
4462  Economy / Reputation / Re: Is franky1 a shill? on: April 18, 2017, 01:18:31 AM
franky1 must be puling all his alt accounts out to counter your poll LOL

i only use one account.
and i think that is your issue. that rather then me using many accounts to express myself. i use only one, which is why people notice my name so much.

but if you should ever care to actually think about bitcoin as a diverse decentralised network. and spent time to rebut the technical flaws of segwit
i would feel proud to see more people actually finally looking at the technology and direction bitcoin is moving in. rather than the "insult him because he doesnt kiss ass" scripts

worth repeating as many call me a shill just to avoid the technical flaws of the group they are defending.

so here they are again:
segwit does not solve quadratics.. it makes it 4x worse:
0.12 4k maxtxsigops (~10sec validation time)
0.14 16k maxtxsigops (~8min validation time)

multisigs(backnone of LN) themselves solve malleability without segwit, simply by requiring a second person sign off on a transaction

segwit is not a 2mb or 4mb capacity growth promise. it requires EVERYONE to move funds to segwit keypairs and stick with those key pairs without any native key users.. to even get close to the 2mb 'gesture'
EG 1mb 'promised' 7tx/s if everyone used lean tx's...
we have NEVER had a 7tx/s block in 8 years. so forget thinking segwit will get the 100% utility to hit the 'expected 2-4x capacity'


segwit has taken a year and a half of delays for a half gesture 2merkle TIER network.. yet could have been done in less time as a single merkle full network consensus upgrade that could have included other features like dynamics.. where there would not have been debates, drama and the community would have been united

forget the reddit sales pitches and scripts
forget the utopia
forget the 'love and adore blockstream' parade and actually scrutinise the code and technicals

if your just going to reply "shill" then save your time, use it more wisely learning bitcoin
let me guess if you dont shout shill as your only argument . it will probably be still ignoring the technical flaws.. and just most probably be a reply about some grammar details (the other empty argument to evade the real technical flaws)

whispers in the wind

so nice try. but when you defend blockstream but fail to rebut the context of the technical flaws of segwit and just shout "shill" as your defensive argument. it makes you look weak.

Everyone knows your a shill Franky, how your making your money we don't know but we know your a shill.

lol you just want to pigeon hole rathr then actually debunk blockstreams failings.. very empty rebuttle that is.
me but my opinions are based on:
decentralised diverse consensus network.
not
blockstream(core) dominant network

i actually would be happy with core working ALONGSIDE the other DOZEN different and diverse implementations if core didnt have the blockstream(DCG) agenda.

also. many fail to pigeon hole me into xt classic bu or other "brands". because i want:
decentralised diverse consensus network.

not any particular "brand"

so nice try. but when you defend blockstream but fail to rebut the context of the technical flaws of segwit and just shout "shill" as yoer defensive argument. it makes you look weak.

segwit dos not solve quadratics.. it makes it 4x worse:

Satoshi's whitepaper was riddled with flaws and oversights and misjudgments.
Oh yeah, you're way smarter. So smart I'm ignoring you.
But its true.

not flaws..
its just that blockstream have taken core far far far away from the original vision/ethos of bitcoin.

funny how you blame the inventors original vision as being the thing thats wrong. rather than whats mean moved away from that original vision
4468  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Roger Ver has been compromised on: April 18, 2017, 12:33:12 AM


look passed the word scripts of reddit
look passed the scripts of "call those anti-sgwit guys shills"
look passed the cabin fever of blind adoration of blockstream

then
take a critical mind and read the code of segwit
actually understand it. look at the way it used a backdoor (even they admit as much)
look at how the promises of fixes are not 100%
look at how it changes the network topology with upsteam filters (their buzzword not mine)
look at how the quadratic/ malle' and even new attack vectors are possible even with segwit 'active'
look at the flaws and limitations.

you can call me anything you like but..
 at least try to understand what you are trying to defend by really understanding it first
4469  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Roger Ver has been compromised on: April 17, 2017, 11:51:35 PM
You're talking about killing off more than half the network. I'm still not sure why you're preaching about things that you don't understand yourself?
go play with a stripped and prunned node and tell me its still 100% full node!!

if you want to talk about killing off more then half the network. stop preaching about your crush with gmax and his colleagues and learn bitcoin
You statement has nothing to do with what I wrote. The reason for that is, exactly what I've mentioned earlier, lack of knowledge.

its about prunned/no witness(Stripped) nodes are more then likely to kill off more than half the network

how about you stop preaching the blockstream half baked features, take off the blockstream defender cap and wear the critical thinking logical cap about whats best for the bitcoin network

here is your own self debunking the myth that dynamics and big blockers will kill half the network

There is most certainly inadequate amount of research in to the effects of big blocks on the Bitcoin nodes (i.e. how many % would be lost at which block size).
4470  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What is happening in Africa? And what can we make happen? on: April 17, 2017, 11:39:27 PM
observation and feedback from africa when i spoke with them
"sounds greats".... couple days later... "whats this tx fee, why so high" ... "no thanks"

here are some insights of why m-pesa are preferred

m-pesa
During 2016, the service processed around 6 billion transactions, peaking in December 2016 at 529 transactions every second.

no charges to withdraw m-pesa to kenyan shilling using some ATMS
http://www.mpesacharges.com/equity-mpesa-atm-withdrawal-agent-number/
use atms to withdraw kenyan shillings in amounts that are 200ksh-70,000ksh (equivalent to $2-$670in dollars) daily limit 140,000ksh(~$1340)
able to send to others within the m-pesa in amounts of 10ksh-70,000($0.10-$670)at 1% or under in seconds

others have noted people in the US/UK/Europe buying bitcoin costs them a bit to exchange into bitcoin. and the whole bitcoin tx fee stuff.
then to convert it to kenyan shilling is another exchange cost.
makes using bitcoin as a method of remittance far more costly then people think

rodeoX:
iceland is an easy market (due to higher incomes and fee's of fiat). but africa on the other hand will be a real test of your skills. so be very prepared as its more of an uphill struggle. alot of out of the box thinking will be needed


4471  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What is the latest status/drama on the Bitcoin Unlimited Hard Fork? on: April 17, 2017, 10:37:50 PM
If big blocks forked now with 85% of the "nodes" running Core, but 40% of the hash rate accepting bigger blocks, most nodes would end up syncing to the shrinking minority chain, and once they realized that, they would switch to a different client because the coins on the big block chain will be worth more.

I find it hilarious that they still think they can win by confusing people. Bitcoin was created to withstand propaganda campaigns.

those wanting "big blocks" and dynamics. dont want to split away and dont want to do anything without consensus.

its the likes of the blockstreamists screaming for anything not core to split away.
atleast read and research who is screaming what

bu/xt/classic/ and other implementations have just plodded along waiting for consensus.
gt your head out of the r/bitcoin, also known as the Foxnews mindset club
4472  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What is the latest status/drama on the Bitcoin Unlimited Hard Fork? on: April 17, 2017, 09:59:06 PM
BU/classic/xt do not want to split the network. they want a proper network consensus upgrade.
they have set no deadlines or added code that would destroy the network. they are just waiting for consensus. the sensible way

they were offered and refused to split away from the network
What you are describing is what I and others call a bilateral hardfork-- where both sides reject the other.

I tried to convince the authors of BIP101 to make their proposal bilateral ... Sadly, the proposals authors were aggressively against this.

The ethereum hardfork was bilateral, probably the only thing they did right--

then do not want to wreck the network. never have..
the only 'group' wanting to wreck (REKT) the network are the blockstream group

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1162684.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1330734.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1858019.0

blockstreamists will scream lots of fake drama that spits are bad,
but then demand anything not core should split off
then scream how anything not core are wrecking the network by splitting
then scream how anything not core is an altcoin due to splits..

its all just circle jerk drama from the blockstreamists that can only read one line of FUD script on reddit at a time and just repeat it without researching or thinking logically.

all the drama about asics wrecking/attacking the network is drama too. asicboost came first and is just an efficiency gain. just like back in the GPU mining days openCL was an efficiency gain for ATI GPU's.

its blockstream who have wasted over 2 years using a exploit(they admit the going soft is using a backdoor) to try 'going soft' pretending that doing so was all backward compatible, yet if so backward compatible they could trigger it any time with no harm, right..(logically)
last month they found a flaw that using the soft (exploit backdoor) just wont work, where they realised its not as compatible as they thought. so now started more drama.

they are blaming the miners yet its the blockstreamists that were the ones that gave only the pools the vote.. in short its all just drama inducing delay tactics

but instead of holding hands up to admit they need to do a real network consensus and an opportunity that would include the other features that the community desire, which if implemented in 2015 would have been active by now..

but blockstreamists will continue delaying things until 2019(usaf.co: 'up until late 2018') with empty half promises and debate to avoid a proper network consensus upgrade any time soon.

tl:dr;
BU/classic/xt do not want to split the network. they want a proper network consensus upgrade. but the crew of blockstream that have coded over 98% of core are doing all they can to control the network for their own purpose, with all this drama

i have a serious question to gauge your mindset..

are you the kind of person that gets a mortgage and thinks the house is yours free and clear?
or are you the person that knows the bank owns the house and as long as you repay the mortgage you are allowed to live in and maintain the house.
4475  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Roger Ver has been compromised on: April 17, 2017, 06:14:17 AM
Satoshi's whitepaper was riddled with flaws and oversights and misjudgments.

or satoshi was forward thinking of wanting to go left. but core went to the right. and now wants to pretend they own bitcoin and even want to re-write the white paper to make it look like SATOSHI's whitepaper was always talking about the 'segwit way'
4476  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Regenerating lost bitcoins on: April 17, 2017, 04:44:28 AM
if you think that bitcoin will be used only as a store..
then destroying coins to then just add them to a new blockreward 1:1 wont change anything. the pool that collects the new coins will just store them..

redistributing wealth by destroying thousands of peoples coins that were bing held for their retirement. just to hand to a pool to hoard is not good nor useful nor solving a issue. infact it creates more reasons for people to not use bitcoin.

..
the solution to the paying mininging pools debate in upto 120 years is simple.

it does not mean gigabyte blocks by midnight scare stories.
it means slow natural growth over years.

EG 2mb 2017
3mb 2018
4mb 2019
5mb 2020
6mb 2021

and so on.

we already know 8mb blocks are safe now. so getting to 8mb in a few years and 16mb after that and 32mb in a dacade or so and so on is safe, rational and allows alot.

think about it. lets say $0.04 per transaction was the acceptable amount
1mb= $88 (2200tx/block)
2mb=$176 (4400tx/block)
4mb= $352
16mb = $1408
64mb = $5632
256mb = $22528

so imagine in MANY DECADES when 256mb block worth of data is treated like we treat an old floppy disk today (we already kind of do: 256mb microsd 2017 vs floppy disk 1997)
can earn a pool over $22k a block by allowing 563200tx on average each paying only $0.04

again this is not 256mb by midnight. this is over time.. in a relaxed natural progression that dynamically changes over time as node capabilities grow based on tech, efficiencies and internet infrastructure changes

4478  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Roger Ver has been compromised on: April 17, 2017, 03:57:01 AM
Wow, you got every single point wrong.

1. I want Bitcoin to be uncontrollable p2p cash as described in Satoshi's white-paper.  (Not just a settlement layer)

2. Decentralization is the tool Bitcoin uses to achieve its censorship resistance.

3. Read the white-paper and you will see that unlike Blockstream and Core,  I'm advocating for the very thing that Bitcoin was designed to be from day one.

In the situation you described, where only miners run nodes, Bitcoin is highly controllable.

what if, just what if you thought logically

100% node = mines and validates latest rules, stores, relays, creates transactions
90% node = validates latest rules, stores, relays, creates transactions
80% node = validates newish rules, stores, relays, creates transactions
70% node = validates old rules, stores, relays, creates transactions
60% node = validates latest rules, prunned, relays, creates transactions
50% node = validates newish rules, prunned, relays, creates transactions
40% node = validates old rules, prunned, relays, creates transactions
30% node = mines, stores, relays, creates transactions
20% node = relays, creates transactions
10% node = creates transactions

now imagine he was describing the 100% node to explain a node that does everything.
but for instance a 30% node was a SPV pool node
and a 'economic node' was the 40%-90% nodes depending which version number/how long ago you upgraded EG core, BU, classic,xt, knots, etc

and the 10%-20% were more like web-lite wallets such as multibit/electrum, bitcoinJ, etc
4479  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Did Craig Wright turn out to be Satoshi Nakamoto on: April 17, 2017, 02:30:01 AM
again - wright HAS money

NOT HIS MONEY

its money from the shell games that all started from lies

its all about fake valuations that then used to get VC funding then he moves on and re-valuates another shell based on the last two shells.

and so on..

once the shells crack open and realise there is no pearl inside you realise its a shell game of ponzi's and fraud and he will have many investors and governments wanting their chunks of the pie back
4480  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Regenerating lost bitcoins on: April 17, 2017, 02:06:03 AM
i have coins that havnt been touched since 2012.

if the OP thinks its ok to destroy my coins(for instance of a 5 year limit) and allow a pool to generate a coinbase that includes an amount of my coins because of lets say a 5 year threshold.

then lets first ask anyone that thinks its a good idea.. to first delete their own private keys and see how they feel when they suddenly cant have their coins.
