Do explain and I will stop asking?

The main point of this thread is follow the Bitcoin markets, price, and buy/sell walls.

We get off topic sometimes (or most of the time). However, some people, including me, feel like you're cluttering the thread up with too much off topic stuff. And very long, multiquote posts.

The majority of people here, including myself, despise Roger Ver, btw. I would second the suggestion to post the Ver comments on the Bcash thread, where they would be more relevant: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2040221
Another suggestion would be to start a new thread where you can talk about taking revenge on Roger or whatever.

There was evidence there and you know it.

Very dangerous evidence, that could full well impact Bitcoin markets and my personal safety.

All linked to the big block debate, lightning, segwit and the bitcoin forks

Trying to destroy a blockchain they have done criminal things on.

I haven't been watching this mymenace guy but it looks like a bot.

His response to infofront telling him he's off topic is to scream about Roger Ver. Most people point out the 1000s of other people posting off topic in response to being told their off topic.

It's almost as if his posts are being taken from somewhere else, reproduced here for some sort of astroturf campaign.

With all the 'bacon' in the Candian, I'd suspect he/she would explode!

So: topic swerve.

All y'all may recall I've been looking to Puerto Rico as a means of reducing capital gains taxes owed (I'm 'Merkin). But I've just learned of another (legitimate - according to IRS) potential route out of the system that may be as interesting:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesdigitalcovers/2018/07/17/an-unlikely-group-of-billionaires-and-politicians-has-created-the-most-unbelievable-tax-break-ever/

Anyone interested in forming a study group? Or is there some other subforum here in BCT that might be better for such a discussion?

Thank you for the link. Extremely interesting.

Grr. Be serious for a moment, dammit! This is potentially useful to a good number of us here. Boblawblaw? Where you at? I know you've got me on ignore, but this should be very interesting to you too.

 This could be an opportunity for a seasteading Bitcoinist.  Set up shop in an o-zone (numa numa) to build components for the steads.  Dodge some tax money, employ a few people who need it and help to build your new community in the equatorial zone.  Win win win.

No. The tax advantage bestowed by this program is only for investment in specially designated Opportunity Zones - all within the US, and in areas deemed economically disadvantaged in relation to surrounding locale. Unsuitable in the least for seasteading.

Down on bad news of their sales being down.

And here I thought all of my personal information was worth a shitload to these companies.

Hey bearman. You said something about wanting to make some sort of research group If you want to make a discussion thread about it do so and toss me a link.

New thread over here -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4748843.0

edit: well, no. I've closed that thread after including a link to another thread on the topic that was booted up in my ever-so-brief absence.

I've also looked into PR, and am interested in this subject (legal "tax evasion"). I recommend creating a new thread and linking here.

I think he meant that you could manufacture the platforms and other components for the seastead in an opportunity zone. Then transport them someplace.

I don't understand bcashers. You can not scale on chain. It's complete madness. The math is so simple. Are they completely math illiterate or do I misunderstand their movement and ideas in some way?

Even if bcash is better, look at IPv4 and IPv6. IPv6 is objectively the better standard. It has enough IP addresses that you could have one for every electronic device in your home.

IPv6 has been around since the late 90s. And yet we still use IPv4. Why? Everything has been built on IPv4. It's established. Getting everyone on the Internet to migrate to IPv6 just never happened. Could it? Should it? Maybe. But it didn't.

With limited IP addresses the Internet stopped working right? No. They just adapted and used various layers to represent the various devices you use every day. You may have one router in your home which then assigns a local IP to your computers and phones. Most people have dynamic IP addresses so that when someone's no longer using an IP address it doesn't just sit there, it can be used by someone else. The Internet adapted. The end of the world did not happen as the IPv6 advocates proclaimed would happen once we ran out of IP addresses.

So work with the current Bitcoin protocol and do what you can to make that work because that's what we've got.

IPv6 is used for some LANs and other things within businesses. Maybe bcash can go that route. Who knows.

You merely misunderstand the ratio of the time derivative of adoption to the time derivative of technology's capacity for transactions.

Yeaaaaa no I don't.

Average bitcoin transaction 0.00000025gb
Half the people on earth use bitcoin 3.5billion
Each person does about 5 transactions a day
144 blocks in a day
 
0.00000025*3.5billion*5/144=30gb blocks. 30 gb every 10 minutes people would need to download. Do you have any clue just how far away from that we are? Moore's law or not? That would be 1.5petabytes per year. That's ~16 yeas IF Moore's law holds. Which, by the way, it hasn't been lately. And even then, that's only regular transactions. That's at best only replacing traditional finance. No innovation there. No pay as you go. No IOT markets. No decentralizing the internet. No micro transactions. It's a piss poor vision for the future.

... or you do?

Why don't you just write down this ever-so-simple equation that explains where everybody else fucked up and shows simply why Bcash is the embodiment of the time derivative ratio of adoption to technology?

You are so full of shit ... isn't it time you got the fuck outta here with your Bcash shilling and pumping?

Reasonable enough for me. Excellent comparison
