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

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.





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".

Lol.  That's exactly what I was about to type.  It's the fucking tech support guy who has no clue what's going on.  His job is 'Hardening the Gentoo install' - copyright Market Karpeles*.

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.

If the entire US govt wasn't crooked, they would be sending in Seal Team 6 in black helicopters to come in through the windows of this exchange.  Nevermind, the entire seal team was sent on a suicide mission and they all died in a helicopter to cover up the lose ends of the Bin Laden compound attack story.  Maybe they can send one F35 to fly towards it, fail in mid-flight, then heroically crash into the Bitfinex building and blow it up.

You could keep using your legacy non-segwit coins BUT... I guess you would have some problem forcing other people to send you coins that fulfill your "full legacy trace" requirement. In fact you probably already have that problem, don't you?

Not at all. To a first order approximation (i.e., the overwhelming majority), I have no reason to move BTC in or out. But for those coins that I do move: If someone wants me to pay to their SegWit address, that's no skin off my nose; For inbound, I provide a legacy address to pay to. Easy peasy.

Ok.

So then if the condition of Bitcoin blocks having a very reasonable 80% peak (maybe hourly averaged) capacity by whatever means, even if that implies only a moderate blocksize increase plus other L2 alleviating solutions... your confidence/preference in Bitcoin would be restored and not keep insisting that BSV is better because: Bigger blocks (even if noone use them), no segwit, no LN, etc?

I am just trying to determine if your main concern is only about congestion or if there additional unsolvable (like considering bigger blocks is ALWAYS better) issues here.

It would alleviate much of my worries about BTC's future. All things being equal (unfortunately they never are), I have lingering concerns about the way The SegWit Omnibus Changeset was constructed and more concerningly how it was activated. But seeing as we're discussing an unplanned hypothetical, I'm not about to invest in a full analysis.

There is also the fact that it is the stated aim of the SV protocol devs that they wish to essentially return the protocol back to that which was bequeathed by satoshi, and then leave it unmolested for all subsequent time (with the caveat that some black swan event may necessitate a change). I see a lot of value in providing a stable platform for other innovation to be built atop, rather than the constant churn and shifting sands endemic to a 'devs gotta dev' mentality at the base layer.

But hey - if BTC adopted an attitude that returned them to the economic model that existed from inception until blockapocolypse (namely, block cap always large enough to accommodate the sustained tx demand), that'd take one of the most on-target arrows out of my 'flaws of BTC' quiver now, wouldn't it?
