I am not saying the law makes sense but law is law.

What law? Imagine it happened in let's say Florida. Whould they be arrested? If so, for what?

Why don't you ask this to Elwar? I am sure he has an answer for it.

Or better, why don't you try it tomorrow and see?

excuse me if this was explained before.. but wouldnt it have been easier and safer to rent or buy a boat and live "la vida loca" in some harbour in the caribbean sea?? Cayman, Turks and Caicos... lots to choose from.

So you are basically saying,

Me, a Turkish dude, can come to the US with a tourist VISA, build a seastead, advertise it on the internet and get away with it. (that's exactly what Elwar did, or tried)

We both know that's bullshit. The moment they hear what I am up to, will take me to the police station and who knows when will I be getting out.

excuse me if this was explained before.. but wouldnt it have been easier and safer to rent or buy a boat and live "la vida loca" in some harbour in the caribbean sea?? Cayman, Turks and Caicos... lots to choose from.

Yep. We talked about it earlier. I was the one who wondered the same thing. I learned It wasn't possible to grow some coral stuff around a boat.  Grin

Great interview on the What Bitcoin Did podcast: https://www.whatbitcoindid.com/podcast/peter-rizuns-lightning-critique-fud-or-fair

I assume a number of you will summarily dismiss this, rushing to judgement before examining the evidence. But for the open-minded, certainly worth a listen.

Anyhow, I guess we keep coming back to the general idea that it will be fine in the future!.. The technology will be there to support Bigger Blocks and Massive Database (but in the future it will be considered small). We will have cheap 1000GBit connections to link everyone together and 80TB hard drives! Moore says so!

The same can be said for LN and Layer 2 solutions. The developers are working on a solutions for this and that. A different Layer 2 solution will be available soon and so forth.

But which would you bet on? Something that is developing and evolving right before our eyes or relying on Moore's Law?

Moore's Law isn't as good as it used to be - since a few years already.

Depends upon which form you use. Gordon's original formulation spoke only to number of transistors per dollar. However, the more generalized form speaks to computations per dollar - which can be extended back from microprocessors to gate level logic to discrete transistors to vacuum tubes to relays to purely mechanical computing. And currently extended forward in time to multi-core, non-homogeneous computing systems. Which has shown pretty high fidelity to an exponential growth rate for more than 100 years, and shows no signs of attenuating.

Plenty of people live on "house boats" in the US.

Citizenship is not a requirement to live on one of those. Tourists can live where they want, as long as they aren't breaking any laws.

You are either playing dumb or you are one.

SeaStead != Boat

Not to mention the result would still be same if I came there and tried to build my own boat. Wtf are you smoking? Pass it to me.

Not much of a difference in terms of law.

Elwar build nothing, he was just a tenant.

That's like finding a houseboat on Airbnb... nobody is going to arrest a tourist for renting one in the US.

I don't know exactly how international law works, but I think the whole point in having a seastead is not being subjected to any national law. Besieging it would be difficult because supply can come from virtually every state, and kidnapping people in the sea is not a thing a state can do. Anyway, that was not a fortress but a floating bedroom, China is making whole islands in international waters without nobody being able to do shit.

Elwar acted as a free man and a dreamer, and that's far more dangerous to some regimes than a nuclear aircraft carrier (which is in fact able to access international waters all over the world). I hope he is already safe or he will be soon, and that he doesn't give up with his seastead experiments (maybe in different more friendly countries without death penalty and arbitrary justice, that would be better).

Just a couple of years and an old russian nuclear submarine will cost no more than a bitcoin of two (two if with warheads), Thailand will cease to threaten old forum members soon Smiley

I am well out of my depth on this topic but my understanding is that Moore’s law refers to the number of transistors in an integrated circuit. It is not an economic measure

Try declaring sovereignty in a trailer on the mainland and see what happens.

My theory: Vinny Lingham and Tone Vays are being paid to gain trust/followers and lie to the public. It's the only thing that explains them being consistently bearish... and wrong.

I've seen the same shit going on with other so-called "Crypto Experts" on YouTube. They're always shilling for shitcoins, down or bearish on Bitcoin. It's always the ones that have garnered the most followers.

Vays, who generally annoys me, does identify as a BTC Maximalist.  And his tweets clearly support that...

There is no such thing as #crypto (even though I sometimes use that term). There is #Bitcoin, there are waste of time useless projects like $XMR, $LTC, & other PoW honest #Blockchains and there r SCAMS like $ETH, $DASH, $XRP and all #ICO's like $BNB, $EOS, $ADA & of course $TPAY

It affects security and challenges the state power of Thailand and it is intolerable," he said.

How fragile must the state power of Thailand be when a floating bathtub challenges it? Perhaps they should fire torpedoes at every fish that enters their waters too, just to be extra safe.

Yeah, that guy and his girlfriend with their platform could launch a night assault on the capitol at any time, must per-emptively strike to protect Sovereignty.


Despite previous info, maybe they are not out of danger just yet.

Price is going higher. Are we close to hitting the $6000 next month? Any guesses?
April 30 is a very important date, for what I can see, we can close to $6,000 this month.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore%27s_law

Like I said. Gordon Moore originally formulated it in regards to number of transistors, this is true. But the principle is of much higher applicability. Which, of course, is only one of the oddities with this. For another, it is not a Law. It is a hypothesis, conjecture, or postulate. Nevertheless, once the 'Law' gained some traction, it was backtested to the birth of mechanical computing. And as I said, found to be very tight correlation well within standard deviation for a century or so.

The point being that the strict limited formulation of Moore's 'Law' is not what is applicable to computing. It is rather a special case of a more general principle that holds tight to exponential growth of computational power per unit cost that shows no signs of slowing. While it is true that transistor count per die surface area sees scaling challenges (BTW, were you aware that TSMC is in the process of working the bugs out of their 5nm process?), that is really just a sideshow. Multidimensional lithography, chip-on-die, chiplets, and most importantly computational macro architecture are all undergoing advances that are delivering on the more generalized promise of computations per dollar. And this is the measure of advances needed for things such as scaling Bitcoin. Transistors per sq mm is an archaic measure with no applicability in the larger question.
