Central banks have been buying up gold at a rate not seen since World War II.

Why?

- Near-record buildup in government debt
- Global instability
- Supply issues
- Inflation

For those same reasons, we buy bitcoin.

So I should also buy a little nibble of gold too right? I mean central Banks manipulate so much why wouldn't they manipulate the gold prices if they're holding it.
You could be on to something there. Cheesy
How about invest into buying pure 0.999% ounce gold coins which are loaded with bitcoin? Grin
Then you could have your investment double covered against the recession.
The premiums on those were always stupid, cheaper to buy my own and engrave a private key in them.

You don't need to buy gold to hedge against bitcoin....... or bitcoin to hedge against gold.

You buy bitcoin in order to hedge against traditional financial investments that are based on fiat, and Bitcoin seems to be more than a sufficient hedge against traditional fiat based assets - likely a superior hedge as compared with gold because it is more portable, divisible, easy to verify and has more potential for price appreciation based on early stages of adoption... in other words likely s-curve exponential growth in the near term.. especially if you are considering a 5-10 year timeline for experiencing actual relative value returns.

In just five words: Pruning.

In just few words:

Nope.

You still have to download and verify the blockchain first before you prune it.

Correct me if I am wrong.



To be honest I haven't personally used pruning. I am assuming you could download an already pruned blockchain ie since the beginning till 1-1-2019 and resume from there. Not sure if core currently has that feature, but it is technically possible without much effort.

That’s exactly how Ethereum in warp mode works. But if you’re running in warp mode, you are not a full node. You are a lite wallet.

Almost no one runs a full Ethereum node, including people who think they are running a full node but actually aren’t.

... and LukeJr is calling for 300kb blocks ...

He is right. We've Lightning now and 300kb blocks is something more than logical!

Funny definition of 'logical'. With 300kB blocks, it would take on the order of a half of a millennium in order to onboard the world to LN.

How long do you expect each channel to lock funds via HTLC?

It grows 50gb/year.
In 5 years, you'll have to download 500gb data to start your own node. And if you already say "fuck no i am not doing it", now imagine how would it look like in 10 years.

 In 5 years, technology and infrastructure should hopefully have further matured to the point where you start up Bitcoin for the first time, go and take a nice deuce, come back to your system a few minutes later, and should be mostly good-to-go.

 Downloading 500gb for a node 5 years from now should be such an absolute non-issue, it's embarrassing that people are seriously considering taking a backwards step right now, and failing to see the larger picture.

 And you wonder why I'm legit taking crazy pills  Undecided

Imagine how I must feel reading this response. Funny world, Bob.

Funny, funny world.

I don't mindlessly support Luke's 300kb blocks neither. I just wanted to point out his angle.

Dashjr has been spewing his insane 'smaller blocks' schpiel since years. It dovetails neatly right between his insistence that the sun circles the earth, and his conviction that it is not immoral to summarily execute every human that does not believe his exact picture of magic sky fairy.

The BIG blockers were neither coming from a good place,

Same place as you, mon frere.

Quote
nor did they have justification

All the justification needed. How soon you forget: Censorless. Permissionless.

Quote
nor genuine motives

Absolute twaddle.

Quote
for their dumb-ass talking points.

Which, of course, is why they needed to be purged from public discourse by the high priests of the Bitcoin information venues. Roll Eyes
