I'm a bit suprised by the venom in your response Jay. No offense was intended. Only to make a point that the segwit branch is just as much a fork as so called 'altcash' or 'bcash' (see what I did there). If there was such a consensus as you describe then bitcoin cash would not exist. Yet it does.  In your face.

"exist" as in mined stop & go by "unknown" and traded almost exclusively on a korean exchange, most likely by just some whale insiders taking advantage of the few fools trying to trade it short term and getting REKT.

an attempt to sack the core developers

I love it when they say that on proS2X forums... I don't think they really have a clue of what open source is



Yeah... they seem to be saying.. Let's make some shit up and act as if a decentralized system is really centralized, and then after that, we will get rid of that decentralized system by saying that we are creating a more decentralized system, even though we are not.  In other words, we want to put in charge a small group of incompetent goofballs to be the "new and improved bitcoin."     In other words, not meaning to bring politics into this, but it is difficult to resist.. Let's bring in a self-absorbed narcisist in to run the new bitcoin, such as Donald Trump, he will fix everything...

hahahahahaha   Roll Eyes     go figure.

Looks like there are not many B2X supporters in this thread.
To be honest, I dont understand why should ordinary bitcoin users (not big miners) support it over BTC

Why should there be very many B2x supporters in this thread or any thread that has actual bitcoin holders?  

B2x is an attack on bitcoin, and it seems to be an attempt to dilute bitcoin, cause confusion and potentially undermine value of the golden goose....

A large number of us in this thread have bought into bitcoin, and even likely for many years, and even perhaps just in the past year the value of bitcoin has gone up a lot, so incumbent holders of bitcoin should not appreciate sabotage attempts, right?

As I already stated, I simply disagree with your attempt to describe some kind of rhetorical equality. 

There are attacks on the true and real bitcoin and anyhow, I already said what I had meant to say, so I doubt that there is anything further that is necessary from my end, because whatever you said does not help your case, including your supposed "in your face" retort that has NOT actually retorted anything of any substantial or material significance.   Roll Eyes

yeah. Thats what i dont understand. Someone is pushing hard for b2x , but there are actually very few bitcoiners supporting it. And I have noticed lack of people promoting it, compared to BCH and BTG. I smell rats

So the real question is this. At what point in Bitcoin's history do people start to realize that all these contentious, unwanted, and unwarranted forks are simply FUD attacks? None of these forks are majority user-driven or majority user-supported. None of the users asked for them and none of them care.

Bitcoin is not a stock. In the stock market, the made up enemies of a company's stock are like quarterly earnings rumors, worries about competitors, corporate takeover threats, internal shakeups, etc. The FUDsters and shorters use this 'false' FUD to create volatility around certain stocks, but at the end of the day it's all pretty much short term made up bullshit.

Bitcoin is not a company, has no CEO or employees, and has no quarterly earnings. So for the whale FUDsters to create volatility, they need to "create" threats out of thin air, so thus we get unwanted contentious forks, govt banning threats, negative MSM articles, miner hostile activity, glitzy shitcoin ponzi scams (distraction), worry about alts taking away market share (distraction), etc. They used to hack exchanges to create this volatility, but that threat is pretty much over now.

Otherwise Bitcoin would have no enemies and no worries. Zero. Just bullish sentiment and everyone in the industry would be behind it 100%. But this does not work for the establishment. They can't have that, won't allow a feeling of positivity and contentment around Bitcoin. They must create new FUD and attacks every month it is alive.

Yeah, it's sometimes hard to have that vision into the future that others do not. To have an analyst mind and extrapolate current events forward in time and say "Well if things keep going as they are now [wrt something], then in 15-20 yrs it's gonna be pretty much like this..."

And then plan accordingly.

Right, vision is very important.

You can fuck off with your "bitcoin segwit" bullshit, and your attempt to suggest that there is some other bitcoin, currently.

I'm a bit suprised by the venom in your response Jay. No offense was intended. Only to make a point that the segwit branch is just as much a fork as so called 'altcash' or 'bcash' (see what I did there). If there was such a consensus as you describe then bitcoin cash would not exist. Yet it does.  In your face.

You simply disagree but in a rude and aggressive manner. But thats OK I'm not particularly bothered about your vulgar language, I sometimes use expletives myself. My in your face retort punctuated the fact that you have no rebuttal to my assertion that the mere existence of bitcoin cash proves you wrong when you state there was full consensus to implement segwit. I suppose I could have said fuck you or something like that though, might have been easier. But still you have no rebuttal.

12k in 23 (ish) days, with a major holiday in the US interrupting money wires? that's 5k away. i mean it's possible, we've seen steeper climbs i think. but i, for one, would find anything about 8k pretty surprising, given the expected dip from the fork.

It was the wallet library contract that suicided. Not the wallets themselves where the funds sit. So, wallets lost the info how they should operate, in particular how funds can be withdrawn.
