Bbut... but Anon, it's like when you want a car engine to 'scale' to higher horsepower and speed, the most straightforward way is to simply add more cylinders!  V32 engines for everyone so we can get places faster, amiright?  /s

Stupid analogy is stupid.

If you want a transportation analogy, a closer analog would be passenger demand for a certain train route exceeding capacity solved by adding more passenger cars to the train.

Still a stupid analogy, but an order of magnitude closer to the situation at hand.

Currently there is no need for 9 billion people to open a single Lightning Network channel. When the need arises, the protocol will evolve and scale as necessary, and in ways smarter than a mere change of a constant in a piece of code.

Don't confuse 'smarter' with 'cleverer'. The users care about the user experience, not the grandiosity of the underlying complexity.

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.

I can tell you why IPV6 was not adopted out of the box and that is because there there baked in vulnerabilities that M$ and 3 letter agencies tried to push to us and we spent a lot of time and effort vetting that and stripping it out. As far as it's current iteration, I have no clue.


Yes, there was something in the encryption (I'm still not certain that the encryption was broken or it worked so well that the NSA didn't want people to use it). I recall in the late 90s getting a memo sent out to all government agencies warning us not to use IPv6, stating that the NSA found some vulnerabilities. Perhaps they found that they can't spy on each transmission.

But the key being the analogy of more IP addresses. A 1 or 2 minute explanation promoting IPv6 and bcash can easily convince many people that it is superior.

"We're running out of IP addresses/transactions per second. When we run out, IPv4/Bitcoin won't work anymore. This new protocol will fix that problem. Adopt it if you want to keep using the Internet/Bitcoin."

The fact that the supposed solution is broken does not make the sales pitch.

'Bitcoin with value of 100,000 euros inevitable'
Yesterday, 4:30 PM in NEWS

The bitcoin will get a value of one tonne. That says Mike Hutting, owner of BTC Direct, in the weekly crypto update. Although there is also another, slightly less positive scenario possible for the Bitcoin.

People say things like this for gold or silver or any commodity (lithium? whatever) but the main problem is the price moves like that because of its measurement in Euros or dollars often.   Gold will goto $10,000 per troy ounce but I've no idea how much it will buy at that point it may even be less then now though imo Im bullish on a variety of alternatives to political currency.

   ECB has run out of bonds to buy for their Quantitative easing program, thats a horrifying extreme they have reached in monetary policy where they control entire markets as the sole determiner of value and price.   Its nothing close to capitalism then and we cant really rely on accurate pricing via Euro or Dollar long term.    It'd better to go on living costs, like the BigMac index if you ever heard of that one for the pricing globally of a standard burger and how that varies and every country has its variation with USA seeing the cheapest cost I think.   Over time I imagine the world changes to some other bias though USA does have growth, where as parts of Europe and Japan have negative demographics, falling working population and China has this problem also after halting their family sizes to 1 child for almost 40 years which certainly strains natural growth.



Bitcoin pricing remains bullish, within a channel upwards.   Target is roughly 8400 but as every low and pullback is higher priced then the last its not seemingly negative at all right now

Here is a good, brief overview of IPv6 vs IPv4.

Quote
Summary: As currently implemented IPv6 networks might actually be less secure than IPv4. This is not because of the design IPv6 but because of inadequate support in firewalls and because network administrators and security specialist have more knowledge dealing with IPv4 than with IPv6.

@infofront

great advice, I have moved the crap to another thread  Wink

I have renewed passion in the market and look forward to robust discussions on the bitcoin wall and price.

And on that, looking very healthy indeed. A lot of infrastructure being implemented that says there is only one way for bitcoin, forward.

cheers again for the tips

Also, I think perhaps you might be stuck in an unhelpful mindset. You think that the gamble I spoke of earlier was a bad one to make. Let's concede for the sake of argument that it was. Perhaps if that was true than bcash would have been meritorious at the time. However, now that we have evidence showing that the gamble is paying off, is it wise to financially back bcash on the grounds that it made sense at the time? Perhaps it is time to reconsider your allegiance to a project that may have made sense at the time but in light of new evidence no longer does.

Exactly. The longer we go with Bitcoin as the dominant currency over Bcash the harder it will be for there to ever be a "flippening". Imagine 2 years down the road people saying..."ok, to use 'the real Bitcoin' you need to sell your Bitcoin Core coins and buy bcash, and change your wallets, and give up all of the second layer resources you've been using like LN, Schnorr, RootStock, etc."

It's all moot though. Bcash has fallen to .1 BCH/BTC and falling.

At it's highest price Bitcoin Gold was .06 BTG/BTC. Can we all agree to talk as much about BCH as we did about BTG when the price is down to .06 BCH/BTC?
