With the Bitcoin mempool nearly empty and 1 sat/B transactions clearing in minutes, you guys can go rightly fk off for good. Seriously. Don't even try to raise that argument here ever, EVER again. Piss off.

Tough titties, bucko. Your impotent rant hath no power here. I'll raise the argument whenever I want.

Quite dismayingly, the Bitcoin transaction rate seems to be suffering a lack of interest. It has been chopped in half since the heady days of $20K Bitcoin.

https://blockchain.info/charts/n-transactions

Are there 200,000 transactions on LN between the paltry 1000 or so nodes to make up for it? I admit I have been unable to find any statistics, but it seems rather unlikely.

A peer-to-peer system that is seeing declining use is nothing to celebrate.

Transaction batching.

This is the link you use for deleting your account. First login to facebook, then go to that link.

https://www.facebook.com/help/delete_account

It's very difficult to find. The deactivate account option is easy to find, but doesn't delete all your data.

Neither deleting or deactivating your account forces apps you installed to delete any data they acquired from your account. You have send a request to each app developer for that.

All those bitcoiners who claimed stellars from the snapshot last year had to install a stellar facebook app to claim. The stellar app developer is probably holding more of their data than they realize.

Yep, you're exactly right about BCash. Nothing to celebrate.

You do realize that as soon as there is an increased demand for transactions again, fees will go through the roof again, right?

So you are saying that we need to architect for speculative, pump-and-dump throughput that happens over a few month period every 2-3 years? It literally sounds like you are saying that. That was never the use case nor the purpose of Bitcoin.

And honestly, I'm doubtful even deleting your account would actually make them delete data about you. They've got it, it's their data already.

...furthermore, number or transactions is now irrelevant for bitcoin. Number of outputs is now the primary usage indicator.

Even after deleting your account facebook admits it still retains some data, but claims it "disassociates it from your personal identifiers". However if you don't delete your account it will retain all your data for certain. Also, the amount of gov pressure facebook is under might eventually force it to delete any data remaining from deleted accounts.

Maybe you should get your head out of your ass so you can better hear what I am saying instead of making up your own shit.

Anybody that has run the numbers knows that the current network cannot even remotely handle global transactional demand.
The amount of people using bitcoin worldwide is still quite tiny.  I would hope that it is our goal to increase our userbase and thus the amount of places and people that accept your bitcoins.

I'm not worried about GCHQ and the NSA, I'm worried about marketing companies using my data to spam me with crappy targeted advertising. I already get enough of that.

Also, I don't like the concept of the stellar foundation tracking every bitcoin registered for its snapshot, then cross referencing that information with the other data it sucked out of people's facebook accounts. I didn't register for its snapshot, but it's a privacy nightmare for anyone who did.

The guy who started the stellar foundation is also responsible for starting gox and ripple. With that track record I don't trust him.

A bit late, but maybe useful for a next time: the Stellar airdrop worked fine with a fake Facebook account. You could even register one through Tor (facebookcorewwwi.onion) and claim Stellar.

Let's just say he's very good at earning money for himself. But indeed, he's not on my crypto-trust-list.

I wouldn't have believed it would let you register through tor unless you had told me. Is that an official facebook feature?

He negotiated getting about 10% of all gox's ongoing profits after selling it, and if Karpeles gets billions from its remaining bitcoins the stellar guy will probably get his 10%.

Ignore the green/red combination of candles, but this is something that's probably gonna happen in next 3 days:



Bitcoin still following up that.

We're going for a pump soon to 9k, hopefully:

And Lightning Network is the answer to that. Not just more block size pile on.

Again, block size increases have nothing to do with the promotion of increasing userbase or merchant adoption. If that were the case, merchants and end users would be going crazy for BCash right now.

tl;dr: 1/4 of a 4% tax payment obligation on $nM, delayed a quarter, is a reasonable penalty in a down crypto market - assuming we don't head even lower in Q2.

Will take my chances and HODL.

I was only joking.


Fucking Bitcorn. Last week of the quarter, and no fucking way I'm selling 4 digit USD Bitcorns.

Here's hoping for a miracle over the next 4 days, folks.

Hodl your bitcorns.

I already addressed that in my original post...
Of course, LN might give us a lot of leeway, but eventually block sizes will need to be increased.
Dryja and Poon specifically mentioned the need to eventually increase block sizes in the original LN proposal.
