Well he is right.  Breaking Bitmain's dominance would be a good thing.  

Sure. But not that way. Change of PoW is a last resort and extremely risky/disruptive option. It's just one step lower than pushing the mutually-assured destruction button. It is more of a deterrent than a practical alternative.

The guy doesn't even hold BTC. No wonder he doesn't fear the consequences of taking that action lightly.

Also, it seems that if he ever had BTC and sold it, he didn't pay his taxes. He doesn't even check the tax report he submits it seems (or he should already know what is and what isn't automatically reported and included).

I still remember the level of stupidity he showed when he asked for the price his donors paid for the BTC donated to him (to use it as his own in his tax report). And when people tried to tell him how wrong he was, he didn't listen.

He is a good coder though.

Yeah, break the dominance by having more competition in the industry.

It's a crying shame others have not risen to challenge Bitmain's dominance.

Read this text.
https://medium.com/@CobraBitcoin/an-open-letter-to-the-bitcoin-community-to-change-the-proof-of-work-algorithm-12a6545c20d0

There isn't any competition left. If we change PoW it'll be a clusterfuck, if we don't Bitmain will be the owner of bitcoin. (if not already) I don't think a company like Halong can change things. Bitmain has too much USD in their hands now. They'll either lower the price of their hardware or come up with new hardware to drive Halong out of business. (3rd option: they'll just buy out Halong)

I expected this to happen years ago. I said that bcash will promote itself as the real bitcoin and confuse people. I said that dev team was too late to change PoW algo. They should have done it when the first ASIC came out when the community was smaller.

Now Cobra is complaining about this and says if we don't act now it'll be harder to do so in the future.

Good morning dude.

We still have full nodes to defend against Jihan. His power is largely limited to withdrawing hashing power.

Cobra was getting a severe honeybadgering yesterday on twitter - 'he's in league with Jihan' 'he's a bcashist' 'always thought he was dodgy since he came back'...
And he won't debate out his points.

Jihan could have 51%ed bitcoin for ~2 years now, but he hasn't, because unlike the little snake he isn't a complete twat.

for now, pow change is a reactive measure not proactive

my new secret crush has a video on this, might watch later https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI3SBTqJUtw&

We are going to have to break the down trend at some point as it reaches zero in mid May.

"Imagine if someone followed you around with a gun pressed against your head, and you were OK with this because “he is incentivized to not shoot me because of the threat of jail”, people would call you stupid and crazy, and yet when it comes to Bitcoin, we’re totally fine with thinking along those lines." -Cobra
