Lots of substance comes out of it: bullshitters are discredited. For one reason or another, there are still occasional waves of people or sock-puppets showing up out of nowhere and spreading fact-free, panicky bullshit.

They're there, in their room.

All you guys need to learn how to use this button, it's there for a reason:



It keeps you from having to re-read entire threads that you may have already read.

I guess the price wouldn't be $16 right now if a major bug had been found. Trouble is, if he ever does find a major bug in the future, no one will believe him.

March 2013, fork in the blockchain. His prediction was right.

I'm curious what his position would be now.

What bugs could occur in the bitcoin protocol?

Could there be a major flaw?

The March fork was an issue for around 5 hours... pretty much a non-event, and was handled beautifully by the main devs.

Prior to that, the only other significant bug was back in 2010.

Appelbaum has zero cred when it comes to Bitcoin.
