Does Bitcoin exist for miners' sake?

And if these miners are not quite happy with these developments (which make Bitcoin better overall), they can leave and their place will be taken by more flexible ones. But instead of leaving, they are putting grit in the machine and trying to curb or restrain Bitcoin. Though their actions are quite understandable (very much like those of Luddites) and aimed at preserving their short-term profits, they are inevitably set to lose in the end. Either they will kicked out from Bitcoin mining or Bitcoin itself will lose being replaced by other more advanced currencies

And then miners will still have to leave on their own after having shot themselves in the foot and killed Bitcoin

Those luddites yielding handheld tools to disrupt a more advanced tool, just crazyness. Bitcoin initially existed for miner's sake who have been ... you and us, well just everybody who wanted to mine. This concept got lost, marginalized by industrial mining operations.
Neither BU nor Core will bring back mining into everybody's household. Now watch this mess of centralisation.
We need just that signal, any signal at all, of Bitcoin still beeing able to change. Adapt, improve. There is the reason why I support Segwit. Not for Segwit's sake, just for the signaling that progress is still imaginable

Ultimately, it doesn't matter

Just as Luddites didn't change anything in the long run (only terribly hurt themselves and their families instead of adapting), the progress in the development and improvement of cryptocurrencies ain't stoppable either. After all, Bitcoin is not the only pebble on the beach. If miners (or whoever else, for that matter) decline to adopt the updates, they will be without doubt adopted by someone else. In fact, this is another opportunity for us all to jump off the Bitcoin bandwagon if it's going to derail and jump on the next one. Let Bitcoin miners shoot themselves in the head if they choose so

What am I missing here? Apart from the Block reward and the miners fees, a additional income stream are added for the miners, if they host a hub a  hub manager will receive income from that, and this income might even be more than the income that was lost from reduced on-chain transactions.

Why would a miner not accept a change in the protocol that could possibly increase his income from fees?  

Have you done calculations that compare Miners Fees VS Hub hosting fees? < or potential fees >

barry silbert of DCG (ownership stake of blockstream, BTCC, coinbase, bitpay, etc) is looking forward to his investment returns from LN hubs.
oops did i just reveal why BTCC is the main/first pool supporting segwit(the phase 1 stage in LN requirements), and why blockstream are pushing hard to get segwit active to enable LN.. oops sorry for the spoilers

I agree to this, It does matter much how Chinese react to bitcoin mining.

The node distribution is also key here. Miners will look if their blocks are accepted & verified.

I'm not a Chinese people, but for me not all Chinese are fucking stupid. Lets us look  the other good sides of their deeds here in bitcoin industry. They're maybe owned the biggest percentage of bitcoin earnings in this industry. but in some  other ways they give opportunity to any one in the bitcoin community to earn some bitcoins. Therefore, that is good anyway to some of us here. Especially for the ordinary people like me.

Its not the Chinese miners that has to be blamed but the owners of Chinese exchangers. They have manipulated the market that caused sudden volatility to the bitcoin price. Aside from that they also made hoax volumes, they are showing pictures of high volumes where in fact they dont have that kind of volume. After the PBOC inpection their records have greatly reduced.

Those luddites yielding handheld tools to disrupt a more advanced tool, just crazyness. Bitcoin initially existed for miner's sake who have been ... you and us, well just everybody who wanted to mine. This concept got lost, marginalized by industrial mining operations.
Neither BU nor Core will bring back mining into everybody's household. Now watch this mess of centralisation.

This is why every user should be interested to change the mining algorithm with the next hard-fork. IMO changing the mining algorithm (include the UTXO set and the block entries in every round of the algorithm) as the most important feature of the next hard-fork.

Do you really think the Chinese Exchanges could manipulate the markets , if the Miners were actually selling the majority of their coins.
Odds are high, there is some collusion going on behind the scenes.  Tongue

How can they continue to allow Core to build a system that will shift fees away from miners and into the pockets of private companies like Blockstream?  Talk about voting for your own death.

Hey miners, switch to BU now!

Just because nullc has a big fluffy beard which you all admire, do you have to follow him to the edge of the Earth?
I think they are all is not stupid. If they are stupid, half of bitcoin amount that spread today will not be theirs.
They know what they do and they have tons of strategy to grow their money even not switching system. Miners always have their ways.

And most likely the government is involved in that too

In reality, China is very corrupted country. In fact, all Asian countries are heavily corrupted. I can't even imagine that Chinese mining farms as well as exchanges hadn't some patronage from government officials (non-official of course). And the visit of the PBOC to Chinese exchanges might have been quite different as to how it was portrayed in Western mass media. I wouldn't be quite surprised to learn that it was actually meant to instigate panic sell-offs and bring down the price as the logical conclusion of the previous massive pump
