You are not going to answer anything because you have no answers.

Any basic home connection can handle 2 mb every ten minutes. The kind of connections that the top miners use wouldn't even fucking notice.

Here is what would happen on the mining front if the blocksize was doubled. Absolutely fucking nothing. The only thing that would happen would be that the hash-per-transaction would halve, but the amount of hardware and electricity to do a 51% attack would remain the same.

NOTHING WOULD CHANGE EXCEPT AN INCREASED TRANSACTION CAPACITY.

Prove me wrong. With numbers and facts. If any of you think you have the brain for it.
I guess he might be weary of re-ELI5-ing stuff that has been discussed ad nauseam. Especially to a fellow bitcoiner old enough (bitcoin wise, at least) to know better - and therefore supposedly able to read up stuff quickly without having to use Wikipedia as a glossary twice for every paragraph.
What is that?

Are we really bringing fears of the "steal the Segwit coins" attack.? To implement the attack, successfully, someone would have to accomplish the following.

A) Modify his pre-segwit node software to accept and mine anyonecanspend transactions. Most of the older software now sees these as non-standard transaction and would not accept nor mine them.
B) Have over 50% of the mining hash so that your chain would be seen as the chain with most work by all the nodes that are running software that is pre-segwit.
C)All of the Segwit nodes are going to immediately orphan the attackers blocks because they will clearly see that the block contains invalid transactions that do not follow the proper protocol for handling a Segwit transaction. The attacker will need to convince the community to hop on over to the attacker's chain. Good luck with that. Please keep in mind that accepting the attackers chain over the current BTC will effectively render the vast majority of the exchanges as insolvent. Also, since the attacker's chain will offer no replay protection, it's going to be a PITA for most users.

Nope. My mistake. I was dumb. I didn't realize Ibian was a bcash shill who was here to hijack the thread. Ignored him too. Won't be happening again.

I'm not blowing you off. I'm suggesting some reading might be appropriate, even if thought it shouldn't be.

By the way, nothing in your writing suggests faggotry, so why should calling you a fag be more classy?

No, that's not how it works. If you are not prepared to present your side of the argument - not even defend but merely fucking present - then your argument is fucking invalid. As in it has no legs.

but at the same time, he doesn't need our BTC since he seems to have more than we do, and he's got nothing for sale that we could pay in BTC.

Well, if that BTC-denominated digital music distributor is still in business, you can still by a copy of my CD for 1.2 BTC. I'd even accept 1.2 Segwit coins for a copy.

Smiley

Aren't you undermining your own argument when you are seeming to give the EXACT same value to legacy BTC and segwit tainted coins?  Would you like to specify (or correct yourself) further here, jbear?

I have continually stated that I am merely pointing out that a reduction in fungibility is endemic to the design of Segwit. I said nothing about a current attack.

Just. Fucking. Stop.

Bullshit. That may be what you have repeated many times, but you've also implied and insinuated that this so-called "flaw" makes BCash the better crypto by comparison. That's been your true underlying agenda, troll.

1. Bitcoin buyers/users know exactly what SW is, it's implications, and still buy and use it.

2. We don't need you to come here, condescend and repeat what we already know about SW.

3. BCash, by inference, is not better because it doesn't have SW. It's a centralized, compromised, piece of shit altcoin controlled by a bunch of Narcissistic asshats. And that is all it will ever be.

So you Just. Fucking. Stop.

Look, everyone, this is not really difficult is it? If bitcoin is just another tool of the 1%, then, fuck it, we will be among the new 1%.

How is bitcoin a tool?  It is not centralized, and once the bitcoin system is in place, then Bitcoin just is... so if you want to modify something that is, then you have to have overwhelming consensus, otherwise bitcoin just is and you can attempt to contribute to it how you like, but you cannot use it to your pleasure, even though you can choose whether or not to use it and if you choose to use it, then you choose how to use it.

You seem to be implying some kind of proof of stake with your suggestion that people who own BTC can direct BTC, but even if there is some ability to contribute and change bitcoin, it remains a matter of convincing others, no?

But if it is more than that, if it is meant to make the world as a whole a better place, to give the world financial freedom, then basic mechanisms such as creating a fucking wallet can not be an issue of confusion.

I think that those outcomes were expected to come about by bitcoin putting centralized fiat systems into check, but the results are not automatic, even though bitcoin could have a tendency to move the world into a better place at least in terms of a financial system that is based on math rather than possible centralized whimsicality.

Either the differences between segwit and legacy need to be made so clear that anyone who can operate a computer understand it, or we need to go back to a universal standard.

You make no sense.  people can choose to or not to use bitcoin.  If bitcoin is too hard for them, then they can use something else, such as fiat, or credit cards or bcash... In the long run, bitcoin is going to evolve, and if you think that there needs to be changes, then either you can attempt to change it or you can hire peeps to help you in such endeavors.  I doubt that you are going to convince very many peeps to abandon segwit when it barely is just starting.. and further, you cannot just reverse segwit, unless you achieve some kind of overwhelming level of consensus that is similar to the process that put segwit in place.  Perhaps only you, jbreher, and the other bcash shills really are aiming to attempt to reverse segwit, and I doubt that any of their motives are really based on improving rather than attacking aspects of bitcoin.

Segwit is powerful as fuck, and it seems to be proving itself as a benefit to bitcoin rather than a detractor as you seem to be arguing.. Hard to take you seriously with such bullshit points.  Did someone take over your account or have you always been a BIG BLOCKER without any fucking clue and buying into the more recent segwit=bad arguments?

Tldr; security reasons...

So implement Segwit through a mechanism that introduces new attack vectors.

Nope. Still doesn't make sense.

Seems to me that there are a weighing of factors.

Do you recall how irritated your fuck-buddy, Jihan, was that segwit would no longer allow him to engage in covert ASIC boost? 

Seems that segwit also accomplished a variety of ways to increase spam attack costs, oh poor BIG BLOCKERs Cry Cry Cry  sorry for your losses, and now you seemingly want to purposefully spread disinformation by suggesting that the costs of segwit outweigh its benefits when you likely know better.   Roll Eyes

So some of these FUD spreading nutjobs, like jbreher, who seem to want to continue to present the speculation of the fungibility issues as if it were a current attack on bitcoin, rather than speculation of the future seems premature, misleading and an attempt to spread FUD about speculation rather than actual and current things going on in bitcoin.

Your continued mischaracterization of my position -- especially in light of my repeated corrections -- is antisocial aggression. (haha! Don't I just sound like an SJW?)

I have continually stated that I am merely pointing out that a reduction in fungibility is endemic to the design of Segwit. I said nothing about a current attack.

Just. Fucking. Stop.

O.k. You goofey doofey.  Let's kiss and make up, and ten years down the road, if some kind of bitcoin fungibility issue comes up, then you can tell us that you were so, so, so correct all along.  Of course, rub our noses in your bliss and add "nah, nah, nah nah...  told you so!!!"  Wink

Useful information isn't just shared. Someone has to share it.

When sensible posters run and hide it creates a vacuum for shit like this. This is part of the problem.

Nobody here seems to want to splain nuttin to you because the answers to your stupid-ass questions are common sense.  

Welcome to our new and improved bitcoin/segwit 101 (segwit added through normal consensus mechanisms in August 2017... lovely), which no needin splainin, especially by BTC price watchers like us.. we here to watch BTC walls and prices, no?
