According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

I'm pretty sure that this has been answered already but please enlighten me.

Basically Mike and Gavin threw an implementation of bitcoin in the wild that is schedule to produce bigger blocks if 75% of the node in the network runs bitcoinXT. Some people are pissed because it gives the choice of scaling bitcoin to the market instead of a bunch of devs pushing for the private company Blockstream.

In essence, Bitcoin XT is an altcoin that is being bootstrapped on Bitcoin Core's blockchain; Bitcoin XT is copying the state of Bitcoin Core users' holdings, and then just hoping people switch to using Bitcoin XT instead.

Bitcoin XT is an attempt to prevent Bitcoin from being centralized under the control of BlockStream inc.

Does this benefit the bitcoin overall with XT?

not really it seems that we can directly improve core(with the changes that are needed) without the need of XT, and i don't know the reasons, why they have not follow this route instead..

whats the difference between bitcoin and bitcoin xt?
can i store bitcoin xt to my bitcoin wallet or technically its same (sorry for the noob question)


it's the same until there is consensus of 75% for Xt, XT will be like non existing

Bitcoin Core is Linux - decentralized, consensus-based
Bitcoin XT is Microsoft - spies on you, takes control over your privacy (and funds), blacklists, is closely connected with NSA and CIA

you decide

Seems something like liberalization of the market if we can speak with economic terms. I am not an expert in bitcoin technology so I must be the last to comment such things but I'm sure that if this is liberalization it is a good thing. In the economy the liberalization push development and bring evolution and growth.

Bitcoin XT can support more transactions and more users if an event were to occur where lots of new users would join the network. Bitcoin Core can't handle that, basically those who are against Bitcoin XT are a selfish bunch and in favor of their own personal benefit and not Bitcoin actually spreading its userbase.
