I'm also switching my node to XT.
I've already switched mine.  Doubled my bitcoin in five minutes.  If anyone wants to buy BitcoinCore bitcoin, I'll sell them for a discount of $175.  I am also selling the new bitcoin BitcoinXt for $250.  Send me a PM with your address.  I can make the trade today.

lol bitcoincore btc for $175 ill take them all!

What is bitcoin xt? Thanks for an answer
Gavin forked Bitcoin.  Now there is bitcoin and bitcoinXT.  bitcoinXT is much better.  Prolly going to the moon. If you want some of the new bitcoin (bitcoinXT) - let me know.  The old bitcoin is going to become worthless - very fast.  It is still good today, but in about a week, you won't be able to get $5 for one BTC

Gavin hasn't forked Bitcoin. The fork will only happen unless 90% of people are running XT, otherwise there is only one Bitcoin (the one we have now), you can use Core or XT, or any other wallet, it's all still the same.

Double bitcoins? I thought all the bitcoins will remain and the transition (in case it really happens) of BitcoinCore to BitcoinXT just adds the bigger blocksize limit and functionality but the bitcoins will remain? Confused here.

Obviously nobody doubles Bitcoins out of thin air. Bitcoin Core and XT are the same, network and blockchain-wise, as of now.

I installed it two days ago to check it out... I uninstalled it last night and now I am back with core. It was misleading, because the github page said you could easily switch between XT or core, but it runs on top of core. So once you install XT, even if you try to launch core you run XT everytime. The only way to run core again is uninstalling bitcoin and reinstalling core.

Yes, that's how it works, you wither have Core or XT... But their files are compatible between each other. Example: you don't need to resync to start using XT

I still hope that it is just trolling without any bad intentions, because last threads about XT are just total bullshit..Sad

What is bitcoin xt? Thanks for an answer
Gavin forked Bitcoin.  Now there is bitcoin and bitcoinXT.  bitcoinXT is much better.  Prolly going to the moon. If you want some of the new bitcoin (bitcoinXT) - let me know.  The old bitcoin is going to become worthless - very fast.  It is still good today, but in about a week, you won't be able to get $5 for one BTC

Gavin supported the XT fork but it is not Gavin himself who made the fork. Also, as I understand it, the bitcoins that I have would probably be worthless in case XT was accepted by the majority of the network, but how was this even possible if the coins produced on during Bitcoin Core and the coins that are going to be produced in the Bitcoin-XT runs within the same chain? Different statements regarding XT and core really confuses me now. Can someone shed some light in this one?
Don't freak out!

There is just one chain.  But on that chain, there will be bitcoin and bitcoinXT.  Every coin you have now, will soon be two. If you have 100 BtC now, you'll have 100 BTC and 100BTCXT as soon as the fork takes effect (ie. 90% of miners).  But there will only be one chain.  Sell your BTC now because they will go down in value to nothing.  However, you really lose nothing because BTC XT will stay valuable.  They must assure that everyone holding 100 BTC gets a fair shake - that is why they are giving 100BTCXT.  There isn't going to be two chains.  Just two coins on the same chain.

Get it?

Yes I got it. The one who has the most support from the network will get the upper hand and will be the new fork and chain that we will gonna be in. Anyway, how about the people with only lightweight wallets? How are they gonna be affected by the transition in case it happens?

As I understand it, you need to download the new client for bitcoin-xt. Still it wouldn't affect your coins that much, it will still be working in one chain. Sooner or later when bitcoin-xt was the most used fork in the block chain, your coins in the bitcoin-xt client would be the valid coins you can use for spending and the older bitcoin core coins would be pretty much useless as it will not be recorded on the chain whether it was spent or not, mainly because the chain that we are following would be bitcoin-xt and not the bitcoin core. (Did I get it right? Correct me if I get some points wrong.)

Sorry - you got it wrong.  There won't be two chains!  There will just be bitcoinCore and bitcoinXT - both on the same chain!.  Ever how many coins you have now, you'll have the same amount of both types.  One will become worthless (bitcoin core) the other will be valuable same as you know it today.

But if you hurry and load bitcoinXT today, you'll double your coins because they will both be worth something for a while longer.  Only the people who wait - don't double their coins.

Anyone want to buy some bitcoinXT - I've got a shitload available.  I sold all the bitcoinCore already (for $195!) - suckers!  Those are going to be worth nothing soon.  Don't wait.

Just read my reply again and I'm pretty sure I haven't stated anything about two different block chains. Seems like you didn't understand my reply. What I'm saying is, when the Bitcoin-XT fork becomes the widely-used version of bitcoin in the whole network, the coins that are in the Bitcoin-Core client couldn't be spend and will be invalid for transactions whereas the Bitcoin-XT coins would be the coins that could be spent and are valid for transactions. Also, reading from different threads, you could still import the privkeys from Bitcoin-Core to Bitcoin-XT and have the same amount of bitcoins. That is what I learned in reading some threads about Bitcoin-XT.

Seriously folks, ignore the FUD.  There is no altcoin.  You cannot double-sell.  There is only one chain.  Installing XT casts your vote for a potential future increase in max block size.  Such a future increase will ONLY occur if/when 95% of mined blocks support it.

Yup, and that is great. My question is: What happens if 1MB limit is reached, and we still don't have a clear consensus on wallet usages? I guess that, if there are problems once we reach 1MB, Gavin will be proved right and people will insta switch to XT en masse.

From what I understand if the 1mb limit is reached then transactions will take a very long time or not be completed at all.  And so many will trade their bitcoins for fiat or altcoins, and the network should return to normal.  The cost is the price of bitcoin will go down quite a lot.

You got that mostly right. The fork only happens when >95% of the last 1000 blocks mined follow the Bitcoin XT rules.

There are NOT two coins right now. NOR WILL THERE EVER BE TWO COINS OR TWO EQUALLY VALID CHAINS!!!. YOUR COINS WILL NOT DOUBLE!!! It is impossible for two coins to exist on the same chain. You are completely and absolutely wrong. STOP TROLLING!

People are really this stupid. And probably also mega trolls.

Anyone want to buy some bitcoinXT - I've got a shitload available.  I sold all the bitcoinCore already (for $195!) - suckers!  Those are going to be worth nothing soon.  Don't wait.

If both are the same chain, they are both the same coin. Nobody doubles Bitcoins out of thin air.

You are still in time to correct yourself and search about this topic: there's plenty of information around. No need to spread things that are not true.

Also, thank you for selling your "BitcoinCore coins", leave them for those who truly understand Bitcoin, the blockchain and its implications

Let's see if you are still saying that when bitcoinCore coins are selling for $1 and bitcoinXT are selling for $1000.  Dumbass.

i doubt there is, many are not even running full node, or they just fire it up and close it 2 minutes later

but anyway it should still be a low %, just someone is trying it
