Quoting the roaches racists shit is a "ignorable" offense, FYI.

He engages in convoluted distractions including frequently attempting to suggest that there were some kind of burden on others to prove him to be wrong rather than him having both the burden of production of evidence and persuasion about the relevance and strength of that evidence, and further if he were such a supposed genius, he would present his ideas and refrain from ad hominem bullshit....

You are delusional, JJG. In your discussions with Shelby, he provided sound reasoning based upon solid evidence supported by links documenting the evidence. But rather than admit that you were too fuckin' lazy to read the supporting evidence, and apply your brain to follow the arguments, you merely dissembled saying the evidence was not presented. Pointing out that you refused to attempt to follow the argument is not an ad hominem attack.

Thanks Jbear.  I must admit with all the BCH forks flying around I am losing track of which BCH is supposed to be the real BCH.  Is it the Peter R or Alex F version or someone else’s?

Looks like symmetric triangle, logic would be that since we come from a downtrend the trend should continue in this direction  Sad Hoping to be wrong.

We come from an uptrend too, and it just depends on what time frame you are looking at.   Shocked  Hoping NOT to be wrong.   Tongue

Good morning Bitcoinland.

Not much to say. Sideways is sideways... currently $6457USD/$8442CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

Oh, the dog days of August. Kinda reminds me of Aug 2013 or Aug 2015.

you forgot about August 2014? and August 2016?  Aren't we in a even year pattern?


Don't get me wrong. ... I am just asking questions. I don't place a lot of emphasis in calendar year (or seasonal) BTC price patterns.

A critical element to price discovery is physical delivery. Specifically, with our solution, the buying and selling of Bitcoin is fully collateralized or pre-funded. As such, our new daily Bitcoin contract will not be traded on margin, use leverage, or serve to create a paper claim on a real asset. This supports market integrity and differentiates our effort from existing futures and crypto exchanges which allow for margin, leverage and cash settlement. Coupled with a secure, regulated warehouse solution, you can begin to see how this market infrastructure can help more institutions and consumers participate in the asset class.

I will be giving a talk at #ScalingBitcoin on how a block size increase up to 3600x the present size and a change of proof-of-work can be achieved with a fully backwards compatible soft-fork—old clients see all transactions and valid SHA256 block headers.

This is not good news if onchain.  I hope this is a sidechain solution.

I'm sure it's easily blocked with a non fork update. What percentage of the network updates regularly?
I'm guessing a syntax error that will bypass a specific check in a very specific way that can be easily mitigated on an updated client.
Lets see how close I am in october.

Hah!, I don't even know what that is!

Bullshit.  He provided convolution and distorted speculation.. similar to any FUD spreader that attempts to persuade you of nonsense.

But rather than admit that you were too fuckin' lazy to read the supporting evidence, and apply your brain to follow the arguments, you merely dissembled saying the evidence was not presented. Pointing out that you refused to attempt to follow the argument is not an ad hominem attack.

There were plenty of ad hominem attacks, irrelevancies and convolutions from Shelby/aunymint, the purported angel... I remember that.  You don't want to miss an opportunity to bring up some more bullshit FUD spreading, jbreher?

As I understand it, Mark is not proposing that any of these changes actually be made - he is just going to do a presentation that he says demonstrates that it is theoretically possible to do basically any change as a soft fork.

I am a researcher who studies clean energy technology, specifically the transition toward decarbonized energy systems. I think that the conversation around bitcoin and energy has been oversimplified.
unfortunately also not an editor

As such, bitcoin mining uses an exorbitant amount of power: somewhere between an estimated 30 terrawatt hours alone in 2017 alone. That's as much electricity as it takes to power the entire nation of Ireland in one year.
Indeed, this is a lot, but not exorbitant.
but in the end

So perhaps people should quit criticizing bitcoin for its energy intensity and start criticizing states and nations for still providing new industries with dirty power supplies instead.

You seem to be unable to discern the difference between: an instance of a blockchain; and a proposal for an instance of a client.

Relieved? Maybe. But verification is still in order. Their system seemed purpose-built for partial reserve. What reassurances do we have that this claim is accurate?
