Why are you surprised that an XMR core dev scammed millions out of all the XMR shitcoin lovers? lol

It does give one that impression...

Why? Is it not his money?

I would never buy such an expensive watch which also is particularly ugly to my taste but.... still. Where is the scam?
I agree in principle but those optics are so terrible. Even me who is one of the biggest monero supporters and free market supporters was quite taken aback. Flaunting wealth that crassly is in very poor taste. I mean at least a lambo is a real thing. A honda civic doesn't work just as well as a lambo. But a 20 dollar watch at walmart probably works better than that, it probably has more features. That's like setting a million dollars on fire in front of everyone just to show them that you can.

I mean yea you are right. It's his money and he can do what ever he want's with it. And monero isn't a shitcoin, it's the best altcoin on the market, just in terms of the tech behind it, tech that he helped to develop. But setting money on fire in front of everyone really really makes you look like a scammer.


Where is the scam?

Yeah well...Monero just got rumbled for having piss poor privacy. Upshot is that the decoy transactions can be traced with ease, allowing those inspecting the blockchain to pinpoint details of supposedly private transactions. Little wonder the Monero emo-dev is getting upset about BTCP. BTCP poses a significant threat to Monero because real (zk-snarks) privacy trumps the non-privacy of Monero. That is why the Monero emo-dev is spraying stupid juice everywhere

Honestly, they are all scared. It's coming out that monero privacy is fake and monero's movement are traceable, while BTCP is not. BTCP has the best privacy tech with bitcoin name. It's gonna be the future, and everyone who didn't invest know that and spread FUD against this coin. I even have the suspect that the CMC and exchange issue are because someone doesn't want BTCP to moon.

Wow. I didn't take you for a fudster. If the transactions are so traceable than why doesn't someone do it? I'll post the transaction id and someone tell me who it came from and who it went to, okay?

How much alt coin diversification is needed? 0%?

May 19, 2018, 02:19:01 AM

Of course, the world has not yet seen a blockchain that has been battle-tested, that does not reward the maintainers in a native token. So there's that. What's the incentive?

Unless someone solves this problem in the realm of game theory, it is impossible.  This is one of the absolute foundational pillars for the stability of bitcoin the removal of which would create a sort of 2 legged stool.

I'm curious as to how all of this is going to play out in the short-medium term.

Some questions I've been asking myself:
Will there be a mass realization that blockchain without bitcoin is just a slow, shitty database?

Sure the value of the bitcoin blockchain, versus other blockchains, remains the proof of work.  The subject matter seems complicated enough, even for smart people and even for those studying the space for a long time that the disinformation and myths are going to continue for at least a few generations, so it seems... people are not really very rational and smart, and that remains part of the reason why religion is so prevalent, and even very smart peeps, and even scientists will retain some religious compartmentalization in their viewpoints.


How long will this realization take?

There will always be some disinformation, but whether a majority becomes enlightened, that may take a really long time.


When/if this realization takes place, will it fuel Bitcoin's moonshot?

You know, as well as anyone, that BTC remains at less than 1% of world adoption, so we will likely have several boom and bust cycles in terms of BTC price before folks start to have some understandings about what bitcoin is.


Alternatively, will people become disenchanted with "blockchain" altogether, and throw the baby (bitcoin) out with the bathwater?

There could be some disenchantment cycles.  I would not put it past some influential governments to have some level of diversion and disinformation attempts that play out quasi-successfully before they finally give up, which also could take a large number of years to play out.


Will this kill off most alts?

It is likely going to take a while for the alts to die, too.  Alts seem likely to be used by some governments and/or financial institutions as attack vectors towards bitcoin, but they also seem poised for failure because none of them are going to really incorporate giving up control, which would just end up causing them to gravitate towards bitcoin and to be absorbed into bitcoin or some semblance of bitcoin.

Wow. I didn't take you for a fudster.

Well I'm not. And honestly I don't care.

But let me ask you this:

Do you really like using a tech that you have no way of verifying fully if it does what it says it does, but you simply have to trust what the devs tell you it can do?

If the 3 letter agencies have found a way to trace Monero transactions from origin to destination, you'd never know or hear about it, now would you?

Is FP really wearing a million dollar watch? If so why? I'm really confused.

Possibly to smuggle his savings out of the South Africa level 5 chimpout:

That... could be true I guess. But wouldn't he just use monero?

It's open source code. You can verify what ever you want. If the cryptography is broken than yea we could have problems. But the cryptography is all older well vetted stuff. And it does follow that as long as the cryptography works than the network is trustworthy and trustless. But yea cryptocurrencies are not savings vehicles anyway. Too experimental, too new, too arbitrary. They are for moving value and speculating. Speculators should know and accept risks like that (the possability of cryptography being broken) and people who are moving money have the risk minimized by not being in the payment vehicle for long.

As far as the three letter agencies knowing. It reminds me of a book I read a while back called The Cryptonomicon, a large part of the book is about a cryptographer that cracked all of the Germans messages in world war 2, and had all of this info about the enemies positions and tactics, but isn't able to use 99% of it to save ally lives because that would give away the fact that the Germans cryptography had been cracked. So he's just sitting here listening knowing that this general needs to do this action with his troops inorder to win this battle, but he cant say anything and has to listen to reports of thousands of soldiers dying that he could have saved. Moral of the story, it's still worth the effort to use something like monero because they might not have cracked it, and even if they have cracked it it's still worth the effort because their unwillingness to give away the fact that they have is a measure of protection.

Only a small handful... as you probably know?

LN is still experimental and it will take some time before reaching some significant adoption rate.

So more points for being an early LN supporter.

Yep, I have noticed a bit of a trend in the Bcasher shills camp to denigrate Lightning Network as if it had been in full development and a mature product, and the fact of the matter remains that the fucking nutjob bcashers had kind of forced the testing of LN to go live because of their nearly two month long spam attack that was seeming to backfire on them by the expedited launching of Lightning Network on livenet, rather than on test net.  

I think that even the bitcoin devs were a bit pissed off about the lightning network getting tested live when it is was in a more beta level.. yet in the end, a lot of this seems to be playing out really well for bitcoin to be receiving such a powerful product and decent attention and live use cases of such powerful product in a more expedited way, in part based on the fees incentives that were largely caused by the backfiring incentives and effects of the then backfiring of the bcasher fuckjob spamming attacks.

By the way, did I mention that I am not very fond of bcashers use of bcash as a bitcoin attack vector, even though their December 2017 through January 2018 spamming attacks largely seems to had "backfired"?   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

The point to me is not that it be adopted before it's needed, but that it be ready for adoption when it is. Like during the last run up when people were paying 30 dollar transaction fees. LN will be adopted as soon as it is needed.

Meet the Urwerk UR-1001 then (~$400,000).



We don't need no steenking watches. Is that a Glen Plaid (Glenurquhart check) pattern on the jacket? That's hard to find now. It's also nifty, tuff and bitchen {insert your own adjective here}.

Zappa also had a short-lived advertising company named Nifty, Tough and Bitchen. Here's an old Hagstrom guitar ad from said company.



EDIT: I can verify, this is legit. Because I'm a musician, and I saw it a magazine (it's gotta be true). A 12-string Hag? Those bent over quickly, not enough truss rod.
