Bitcoin is too far from "Widespread" adoption yet, many years far away, but... you don't think it is important? For me, it is adoption (even if very limited yet) what gave Bitcoin value (not necessarily price). The more people that "adopts" Bitcoin for whatever reason, the better.

It was just a quote mildly relevant to the conversation.
Adoption is a very old chestnut, and I'm scarcely qualified to comment.

Amir has been tied up in some dodgy stuff in the past.

As I write this, Taaki is in the process of recruiting the first five members of his academy: they will have to relinquish any other responsibility or commitment, undergo a period of “ideology training”, and live an ascetic life in the property Taaki will rent. There will be no salary other than “participation in historic action”.

This sounds as much the makings of a cult as Bitcoin development.

I wonder how long until some Bitcoin Liberation Front emerges out all this shit and starts kidnapping banksters.... hmmm no, we don't need that shit. It's sad how all nice things end up being politicized for all sort of random purposes.
None of it is random.

Maybe not... But still don't see how it would help increasing adoption instead of the contrary.
Bitcoin has the potential to change the entire global economy. It was never not going to become political.

True in a sense... But it is not political nor ideological reasons what leads to adoption (beyond a very small niche). You can take any example, ie: Internet, cell phones, etc.... Most people adopted it because it was convenient and it was that growing adoption what led to change. One could argue that nothing really changed (I think many things did... though overall it is still the same in some sense)... Well, that's a complex issue I have no answer about.

If Bitcoin ever reaches (near) mass adoption it will for sure have some impact but maybe not what some people think. Poors will still be poors, rich will still be rich and banksters will just embrace Bitcoin at its core business. Not sure about governments though... but they will probably find ways to keep the status quo.

Hope to be wrong, but in the end it will probably be a major fin-tech advance that will benefit many or even everybody in some ways (as Internet did)
but the global economy, as we know it, will still be more or less the same.

And that is being said by a guy that even if he's not Satoshi himself most people agrees he could perfectly had been. Additional layers are the only way to really scale orders of magnitude from here.

Visa is a not only a second layer (for the banking system) but a third party completely centralised one. Bitcoin can perfectly compete with that while being decentralised on its core... but only with adding L2 for "caching" the mass of small payments before settling on main blockchain. Also the only way to make those payments "instant" which is a must for most consumer payments.

Awesome match, well done for your lot.

Immediately Fellaini came on it changed everything.   I reckon you can take Brazil.  See you in the final, eh? Wink

That reflects what people betting think - and most people just think Brazil must be better, mostly due to past form.

However, past form proves nothing and I think Belgium can beat Brazil.  If the odds stay like this, I will probably bet against Brazil (better value for money).

Either way - it should be a hell of a game - and (emotionally) I would like Belgium to win.  Teams that think they deserve to win have fallen fast in this amazing World Cup.  If Brazil go into this game assuming they will succeed, they will lose.  Belgium on the other hand will know they are up against it and will not give up, as proved by the Japan game.

There has never been an IT system or application in the world that has been able to scale *without* secondary and tertiary layers. Even completely centralized ones. Any IT person, systems admin or programmer can easily tell you that.

That's why these "single layer crypto" idiots need to rightly fk off. It's like arguing with a rocket scientist that rockets can be built without a propulsion system. Or that the earth is flat. It's condescension at best, lunacy and trolling at worst.

@keonne
I would advise against using @LocalBitcoins for the time being. They are having infrastructure problems which break the escrow system. My BTC trade bypassed escrow and sent directly to the counterparty.
My counterparty was honest and returned my BTC, but yours might not be.

For all of you fools who I have not yet managed to holocaust from the thread that keep promoting anarchism as somehow a good thing, anarchism in the modern context is nothing more than a rebranded version of The Protocols of The Elders of Zion.  A foreign entity (aka international bankers aka the Jews), attempts to heap this misguided ideology onto a foreign power they wish to exploit, which results in this foreign power completely disarming itself against foreign invaders who wish to plunder or enslave them.

How anarchist movements actually work in reality to topple nations:

"6. Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one's party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, SO-CALLED LIBERALISM, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism."


"14. In any State in which there is a bad organization of authority, an impersonality of laws and of the rulers who have lost their personality amid the flood of rights ever multiplying out of liberalism, I find a new right - to attack by the right of the strong, and to scatter to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct all institutions and to become the sovereign lord of those who have left to us the rights of their power by laying them down voluntarily in their liberalism."


Bitcoin itself is essentially ceding sovereign power over to a 'supposed' Nash equilibrium, yet if no Nash equilibrium in bitcoin exists (it doesn't), and transaction validators are designed to centralize, it's just another backdoor 'anarchy' scam where everyone is ceding power to whoever the transaction validators centralize under.

Segwit signatures are still on chain they are just in a different spot.  Segwit moves the signature out of the input script and stores it in another part of the transaction on chain.

Speculating about future hard forks that might compromise Bitcoin security is pointless because any hard fork could compromise security in any number of ways.  And be rejected.  That’s what full nodes are for.  

Where is the concern trolling over a fork where only segregated signatures are valid and all signatures included with the transaction details invalid? That is technically theoretically possible too you know. It couldn't go all the way back to inception obviously but the fork author could contrive a random deadline date. Cheesy JUSTSAYIN
