This is under the assumption that the block size wouldn't grow when needed, blocks aren't full without outside attacks so there's no evidence that when the time comes we won't increase the block size to a common sense size.

Well, other than the evidence that blocks were kept small the last time they became persistently full. Which, in itself, is pretty strong evidence.

Once the need resurfaces (and it most certainly will), how long do you think it will take to implement the necessary change?
That was a short spam attack period, you know damn well that was artificial and everyone knew it.

Yes, I remember people posting the addresses of the spammers at the time. That's the good thing about 1mb blocks, spamming gets expensive.
Big blocks are a disaster if there isn't sufficient utility. Say you had 32 MB blocks and only < 2 MB of actual traffic. Someone could easily spam 28 MB per block for peanuts. Sustained over 1 day: 4032 MB of garbage for almost free. Good idea indeed.

You seem to be postulating some novel mechanism by which one can examine each transaction, and classify it as spam vs. notspam. Care to divulge your criteria?

Your dumb arguments about what is "technically" spam and NOT, remains annoying - partly because this is well worn territory in which you have been shown to be attempting to continue to spread misinformation and to detract from the concerted sabotaging (albiet largely unsuccessful except for the purpose of continued FUD spreading) efforts of your Bcash butt buddies.

Never been to Budapest myself - oh well, actually I have, but it was just half a day, passing through it. I didn't even sleep there. Is it a good place to go as a single guy? I wouldn't mind a few details and travel tips. I'm planning to visit it properly later this year.

I've seen some very nice hats that are not worn and are not in the signing campaign ..., jbreher! Grin

Do you need new glasses?

My glasses are adequate, thanks. Cool

I'm talking about the hat crushed on your bear's head.

You have it here if you want to use it.



Maybe later you changed it, because of the avatar that you are wearing now.

in the 1st halving people were turning on anything that could hash, even obsolete stuff and single gpu gaming rigs, in the hope that their miner would be the one that hit that actual block

I always wondered how many people run like one obsolete miner such as an S9 solo hashing in hopes of winning the lottery and getting a block themselves.  I noticed when I did stuff like that in smaller altcoins, my rewards seemed to ALWAYS be higher than pool mining, as if the pools were ripping me off and I got more solo.  Then when I would try solo mining in larger altcoins like Litecoin, I would NEVER get jack shit even with a decent amount of hash power when I should have.  

It feels like there's mega amounts of mining chicanery going on behind the scenes to create all these monopolies in the larger coins - some disclosed like all the Bitmain shitters ASICboost, mining on blockheaders, block withholding attacks, etc etc, and many probably undisclosed.  At least from my experience attempting solo mining on the larger alts and/or bitcoin, the game seems rigged.

I don't think that we should believe it until we get to see an official announcement by Bitfinex team.

Some people do have several hats. Some others have their hats put on the avatar (such as vapourminer and jbreher) while still being xhomerx original works. Some other hats weren't published in thread by xhomerx in advance but, presumably, the request and delivery was done via PM.

Anyway. great job on putting all or most of them into a single picture. Mic was for some time updating the list of hats but, being any of them an IMG tag it reached a point in which it was unusual that all of them got visualised on page load.

I think jbreher current avatar is a second version made by xhomerx on request by jbreher. Not fully sure though.

i bet you'd have those on the bsv subreddits and forums complaining that they can't keep up, and being mad about spam. Especially since that community is moreso mad broke kids who missed out on real btc and want a redo.

You just inadvertently highlighted the reason none of these designed to centralize crypto scams like bitcoin are going anywhere.  Nobody will ever put up with the idea that someone who flash mines the entire supply of some obscure, imaginary, valueless token over a four year period somehow becomes the new oligarch ruler of the world.  It's not even really a four year period since virtually nobody knew about it at the start.  It's basically a zero year, no opportunity period for most normal humans.

People know physical metals have been mined for 5000+ years, and while not completely fair because nothing is, the opportunity for people to get into them has been around their entire lifetimes, before their lifetimes, and will still exist afterwards.  Bitcoin is this retarded thing that just drops out of the sky and before anyone even knows what the hell it is, there's basically a sign at the door that says, "Sorry, distribution already done.  You are now a slave and these are your new owners."

Of course, such a ridiculous scam distribution plan could only work in the first place if Bitcoin actually had some type of fundamentals, but since transaction validators are designed to centralize, it has none and so this whole conversation is pointless to even talk about them in the same sentence with metals.

^Am I the only one here that remembers Last of the V8s was the ONLY person shilling FOR Bitfinex ever in this thread?  He will back any lie or scam imaginable as long as he thinks it's price positive for his BTC balance.  He basically pulled a mirror image of Roger Ver back when Ver said "MtGox is perfectly fine and trustworthy".

Since JayJuanGee & Last of the V8s claimed "everything r0ach says about Bitfinex is FUD", I assume we can depend on them to pony up the $1 billion to keep operations functional?  A $1 billion shortfall....AHAHAHA.

According to @zhaodong1982 there’s a high possibility that @bitfinex is going to do an IEO, and some big whales already reserved $300m of the allocations in #USDT

And “resurfaces” is the wrong term as it implies that the need has previously surfaced, which it has not.  The need may never surface.

You've already banished it from your revisionist history?

There were some high fees in 2017. There was no need for a block size increase as demonstrated by the failure of BCH.

If it was “necessary”, BCH would have won.  

The result was a BTC dominance drop from an overwhelming ~85% to abut half. Are you prepared for a drop to about a quarter next time the stream is blocked? You're whistling past your own graveyard.

Do you actually believe that the value of Bitcoin is diminished every time some scammer comes up with ‘X on a blockchain’ and manipulates the price on some exchange with zero liquidity to create a meaningless market cap?


You are smarter than that.

It seems there are some Chinese scammers that feel it's awfully important to keep the scam exchange Bitfinex afloat.  Hmmm...I wonder why.  It's almost as if back when you clicked on the Chinese scam exchange Huobi back in the day and noticed that EVERY SINGLE TRADE was fake and there were no actual buyers or sellers, they then moved over to Bitfinex after the govt went after them there.  Gotta keep those prices manipulated to keep people paying $5000 for...a timestamp.

If it's really true, they could have milked the market when it was near the peak over a year ago. I have a hard time believing they'll actually gather enough money seeing how more people seem to be opening their eyes to what kind of a joke BFX always was.
