First they (their customers) gonna get screwed badly by honey badger and then they gonna complain to have the FED-SEC and the rest of the so called regulators to impose
regulations = destroy price discovery on the exchanges. And we might very well end in the same deplorable position as GLD.

But GLD is held in custody, you dont have it stored in your house. Whereas for bitcoin, you can have the wallet and a copy of the blockchain in your hdd.

They will have to pump it first, though. No investor will enter in a future contract if the sell price is the same as the one currently on the exchanges. They will want it higher so that they make a profit out of it.

And CME and others will need to grow a reputation on it first, before screwing it up and blaming the "speculators from the exchanges" for it.

Still waiting for the "experts in technology" of this thread to refute this point:
Quote
Bitcoin’s network is going to work exactly as Satoshi programmed it. At present, miner support for the 2x hard fork is running around 83 percent. Bitcoin developer Jimmy Song made some rough calculations, based on 90 percent miner support for the fork. This is reasonable since statistical variance causes miner support to fluctuate.

Song reasoned that, if 90 percent of Bitcoin’s miners follow through with their current plan to mine SegWit2x, then:

“ Block 494784 splits to 1X and 2X. Initially, 1X has 100 minute blocks, 2X has 11 minute blocks on average. 1X and 2X have the exact same difficulty.”

Legacy Bitcoin (which Song calls “1X”) would have 100 minute blocks. This means a single transaction with a high enough fee to make it into the next block would require 10 hours to receive six confirmations. It would take nearly half a day to fully confirm a transaction on the 1X chain!

How is the ecosystem going to react to a nearly two hour block time? Given the great slowness of the network - an order of magnitude slower than pre-fork--how high will fees rise? If the block size remains the same (on the 1X chain) but there are only a tenth as many blocks, fees will have to rise to monstrous levels since there will be 10 times the competition for space in a block.

This will be no brief inconvenience, either. Song estimates that if the mining split remains as it is today, the 1X chain won’t experience a difficulty drop until Feb. 3, and block times won’t return completely to normal until March 10. Die-hard supporters of the legacy chain will be contending with nearly two hour block times and sky-high fees for about three months!


The thing that the fuckwitted autists who squeal about this never, ever, ever, ever seem to bother to mention is a small group of people known as...

wait for it....

users.

There are millions of them who wield staggering and overwhelming power. Miners can posture all they like. If they attempt to fuck the users then they triple entry buttfuck themselves with razorwire dildos.

Every single doomsday scenario has been played out ad nauseam. We've been told were going to be murdered by everything the tossers who FUD laid out in loving detail.

When it came to actual reality the risk of pissing off the users outweighed anything else and nothing happened.

They will not do what is described because they will severely damage their ability to make money by pissing off the users. Hence my lengthy point.

Tech is irrelevant. Money is relevant.

There's a million other technically possible things they can do. They will not do it because they will lose money.

Ok, thanks for answering. But I do not agree.

The highlighted aspect says to me - fear of being poor. That's why they won't disrupt how Bitcoin is operating and that informs all behaviour in this space.

You are basically talking about a transient bad user experience in a hypothetical situation (in which the miners refuse to mine 1X bitcoin while it retains the highest price).  This is not a technical issue.

You achieve that with consensus and a smooth upgrade that carries everyone along with you. Not detonating a bomb which kills half the crowd you depend on to eat which is what 2X is.

we get free coins after forks. they are aidrop for holding bitcoin. we can get 10% of value from the bitcoin price.

When it forks the value of the other will go down while the new one takes a bit away from it and then when you put it back into BTC then BTC will be back where it was before and the other coin goes down.  That's just my impression
But i don't see a difference because when the fork happens, say bitcoin drops 10% because people go into the other fork then you buy back that extra from the fork but it's like a seesaw because we all go into that one bringing the other price down and then we buy the other back and then it goes up so you don't win anything really.

I’m guessing you can’t be 100% certain, it’s very unlikely though. Nearly every method of holding coins has a certain level of risk, some obviously more than others.

Exactly, that's what people don't seem to understand. Bitcoin is going to get to 2x or some other increase in the future but not now and not like this.

I believe there's no firmware present in a freshly-unpacked TREZOR. This means that, in order to be able to use it, you must download the firmware from SatoshiLabs (the creators of TREZOR) and program the device yourself. During this process, a digital fingerprint is displayed on the device's screen, that should exactly match the one shown on the computer screen. After doing all this, your TREZOR is supposed to be tamper-proof and ready to securely manage your keys.
