How about nodes? Does BCH actually have any that aren't Bitmain?

Yes.  In fact, you can download your own Bitcoin Cash node today:

https://www.bitcoinunlimited.info/download

Really? And I thought BCH is a private centralized shitcoin chain, mined by one entity most, with no real devs and promoted by fraudsters like Ver and FakeSatoshi. Oh wait...

If you drank the Blockstream/Core koolaid and dumped your BCH, you can buy them back at 4 BCH per BTC. 

Remember, if you're holding BTC and BCH in equal proportion, you'll come out fine whether Bitcoin Core or Bitcoin Cash wins in the end.


keep repeating this stupid line. i'm sure someone will buy it. shill

I'm disheartened that many people will unnecessarily risk money when the don't have to.  If you don't have inside information, hold both coins and let the whales battle it out.

I say this because I'm passionate about bitcoin and passionate about growing it into better money that all of the people of the world can use.  In fact, in partnership with the University of British Columbia and Bitcoin Unlimited, we have a global testnet where we're propagating gigabyte blocks on consumer-grade hardware.  But you wouldn't hear about that because it is censored from Reddit and censored from here as well. 



If people are interested in the truth of how hugely scalable Bitcoin actually is, here's the video from Scaling Bitcoin Stanford where Andrew and I present our research. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3990&v=LDF8bOEqXt4

Click soon because Lauda will remove this post shortly, as it is hurtful to Blockstream's business model. 

Thx Peter.

I wonder if this is still here...?

How about a letter from the CEO [of BCH] (how decentralized).

Hey, jbreher!  Did you receive your official title from Bitcoin Cash yet?  Rick is CEO, Jihan is CSO, and Roger's new title is just "jesus."

The set of Bitcoin Cash miners is pretty much identical to the set of Bitcoin Segwit miners.

Though I see you have not yet provided any sort of response to my post. To wit:

Perhaps if you could make a cogent case showing how Bitcoin Segwit is in any way more decentralized than Bitcoin Cash, you might have a point. But so far, all I've seen from you or others is mere hand waving.
You serious bro?
How about a letter from the CEO (how decentralized). They carefully removed it from the website, but google cache is still helpful
https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:73C-unKBSVUJ:https://www.bitcoincash.org/letter-from-the-ceo.pdf+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk


Don't bother ragnar0k. JBreher will just hand-wave those ramblings of their CEO madman away as unimportant and ignore you.

Tho I agree with one of their BCH principles, they are obviously sticking to it:

I'm not a fence sitter.  I think I've made it clear that I want to see lower fees, reliable confirmations, and to help spread bitcoin all across the world.

The only thing I'm fence sitting on is whether the next move for the BTC/BCH ratio is up or down.

Nothing personal, but let me do a "socialist wants free shit ideolog" -> english translation

"I want to see lower fees" translation: i want free shit, i do not want to compete with people more intent, cause lower fees will:
"help spread bitcoin all across the world" i want my investment go up in value first and foremost, while
"reliable confirmations" i want it all to be very comfy for me, myself and me, i can not code, but someone must take care about that.

People like you may miss all of the work being done to grow bitcoin because you don't realize that you're in a censored echo chamber where only Blockstream/Core's narrative is allowed to propagate.

yeah the censorship comment is nonsense - it's still there

will watch this tomorrow. It's too late here now and I find all these scammer's voices difficult enough anyway.

for now, tell us, is this the show where the 'global network' turns out to be 6 nodes?

possible i was misinformed

You do not know nothing about what i read/know or do not know about "all the work done".

Saying "you are in a censored echo chamber" is not an argument, hence can be ignored as is.
Goals of a project, "spearheading the launch of the real beginning of the starting, now really" does not equal an actual, finished, workable product. Come back when it is done, implemented and used, than i will congratulate for your hard work and ingenuity.

In 3rd world countries, where the economic need to use bitcoin is high (Venezuela, Zimbabwe, India, etc.), it already trades on a higher value than in the banked comfy western countries, so the basic assumption you argue that "scaling problems prohibit 3rd world use" is factually false. You can make it cheaper for them, yes, but it is not broken.

Why limit the block size to 1GB? Lets make it 1000GB each block, You can then scale bitcoin to bank trillions of unbanked from the entire Milky Way! Or if we make the block size limit to 1000TB then we can scale bitcoin to bank trillions of unbanked from all the nearby galaxies. But then who will host the blockchain? Jesus, is that you?

I can speculate that BCH might go down in the near term while simultaneously being a big block supporter.
You can simultaneously pretend to be an expert while being a con artist. Yes, we are well aware of that. Smiley

The eventual solution is to not care how big blocks get.  

When the demand arrives (which will be decades from now), 10 GB and even 100 GB blocks will be feasible.  This is fairly straightforward engineering.

But for now, our research shows that the throughput capacity of a global network of bitcoin nodes is limited to about 100 transactions per second (30x times the current throughput), due to the single-threaded mempool code path of Satoshi-derived clients.  After Andrew Stone's parallelization of mempool, the capacity was increased to about 500 transactions per second (150x the current throughput).  At this point, block propagation becomes the bottleneck.  There is still lots of work to be done.

.

I realize that you're being sarcastic, but you couldn't actually scale bitcoin to a galactic payment system due to speed-of-light constraints.  Happily, since all our world is reachable by an electromagnetic signal in less than 100 ms, the actual bitcoin network doesn't have this physical scaling limitation.
