Pretty good case for US trade deficit to be one of the main causes of hyperinflation and that the initial starting line for the event was August 2014 (assuming the US attempts to keep spending dollars other countries don't want):

https://www.reddit.com/r/bitcoincashSV/comments/bjec1e/bsv_is_about_proof_of_work_not_just_in_mining_but/

BSV is about Proof of Work, not just in mining, but in all aspects. Other chains want to change the rules because they know that in time they cannot compete with or outwork the true Bitcoin. BSV is the only blockchain in the arena.


Recently I was thinking about this famous quotation by Theodore Roosevelt , his "Man in the Arena" speech:

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

It makes me think of BitcoinSV. The critics are the ABC and Core losers that never put in work, never attempt, never fail, never try and try again, never fall short, but also never succeed, never triumph, and never change the world. They are the cold and timid souls on the sidelines, the ones with the NO2X hats, happy to strangle Bitcoin and destroy the original vision for a short term pump and dump narrative. They are the Chris Pacia's of the world that tell us 22MB blocks are impossible, and needle us about "6 block reorgs" even though no chain was ever more than 2 blocks behind. They make lies that big blocks will result in complete centralization and spread lies that big blocks take 41 minutes to propagate the network. They tell us about "poison blocks" and that big blocksizes are too dangerous. But BSV marches on and proves the world wrong again and again with world record 128MB blocks mined that dwarf that of any other public blockchain.

Its not perfect, sometimes we fall short, sometimes we err, sometimes we fail, but we learn from those failures, and learn from our mistakes and shortcomings. And we improve, and grow, and become stronger. For there is no effort without shortcomings. There is no improvement without trial and error. And who is even competing against us? The other loser chains are afraid to compete. They are afraid to enter the arena. They cannot compete, and they never could, that is why ABC were so critical of the early stress tests done by the BSV community. The only thing they have is to criticize BSV and Craig on social media, because they are doing nothing, they do not know how to work. The only work they seem to be doing is dedicating 90% of their life to obsessing about BSV and Craig. We now know Greg Maxwell of BlockStream is /u/contrarian__, the main defamation troll cult leader critic of Craig and BSV. When you spend all your work and time on being a critic you are not actually doing work. You are just being a critic on the sidelines, and you are not in the arena. You are attacking someone else's work because you don't know how to do real work. They are shitlord degenerate weirdos that can't even properly groom themselves, exercise, or wash their hoodies or clown shirts in a timely manner. You can smell their laziness from a mile away.

The ShamBitcoins have the illusion of work, while BSV does the real work. BSV does so much work that it gets captured and stolen by the fake Bitcoin chains. They steal the network effect, they steal the market cap, they steal the brand, they steal the merchants, they steal the ticker, they steal the subreddits that people like me and others worked hard to build, they steal our following, they steal the fiat onramps and exchanges. That is all they can do. All they know how to do is steal things and then try to rest on their laurels. This is why so many of them prefer POS, so they can become the oligarchs of the system.

It is the same in BTC-Core's Lightning, Jihan/ABC's Avalanche/POS plans, and ETH's plans for POS. These are all forms of POS and rent seeking, where the systems degrade into oligarchy. The oligarchs don't want to work, they don't want POW. BSV on the other hand is entirely about POW, and putting in work, in all aspects. We just march on and continue building and competing. The parasites are on our back sucking our blood and weakening us, but the honey badger continues on. The subreddit continues here, the chain continues with 128MB and 2GB in July, the building and infrastructure continues with moneybutton and unwriter's tools, and large op-return data sizes, and metanet. Parasites freak out and try to delist us because they realize the day of reckoning is approaching. They know in their gut they have stolen everything they ever had. The ShamBitcoin chains are dying, literally. When the reward halving runs out their chains will lose all of their hashing security. BSV is the only ledger that will persist because it can actually generate utility and fees on its gigantic blocksizes. The critics know they cannot compete on work, so they seek to change the rules of the game.

BSV is learning to swim on its own, exercising its mining muscles. We get stronger every day. We have mined world record 128MB blocks. While the other chains mining muscles are atrophied. They couldn't mine bigger blocks if they tried. They are wearing swim floaties on their skinny arms that lose half of their air every 4 years. Core and the Blue Matt are even giving presentations about how mining is bad and we need to get rid of mining altogether because they know they have already failed. Peter Todd is advocating inflation. They have failed to put in the work needed to scale.

So yes we are the ones in the arena, our faces marred with dust and sweat and blood. We are the ones working. We strive valiantly, and if we fail, at least we fail while daring greatly. At least we pushed the limits of what is possible, at least we were not cowards that lay down and give up, or try to steal others work and rest on their laurels. At least we were not just troll critics on the sideline who can only point out where the strong man stumbles. We in BSV at times may experience shortfalls, but we also are able to achieve great triumphs, for you can't have the latter without the former. So remember it is not the critics that count, and its not the trolls that count. Its us that count. We are the irate tireless minority that stands up for what is right. We are the ones that preserve Bitcoin for future generations. BSV is about changing the world, and if you want to change the world you better get off the sidelines and get in the arena.

Capitalism just works.

Here is the obvious answer to censorship:

What opponents of capitalism don't understand is that it is essentially a global voting mechanism. It's the closest we have ever gotten to democracy.

WTF is all this BSV crap?

First we had BCH (a.k.a. Bcash LOL), with its lunatic "CEO", self-proclaimed pirate Rick Falkvinge (aye aye, captain!), and his "Letter from the CEO". For those who still haven't read this, I urge you to read it for a good laugh!



Supporters of this shitcoin include Jihan Wu, pictured below, together with his most famous quote, indicative of his deep wisdom and conviction to this project...



Another important and deeply influential supporter is Roger Ver, pictured below when challenged about Bcash. Arguably, his best performance to date:



Now we have BSV (Bitcoin "Satoshi's Vision"), with its lunatic Satoshi-wannabe Craig S. Wright... Pictured below, with his "trademark - patent pending" characteristic slanted mouth look. This guy means business, so don't you dare smile like that, or he will sue the hell out of you!



Not to mention the pedophile pervert Calvin Ayre, actively promoting and using his gambling earnings to support all of the above. Pictured below with his "colleagues", hard at work on the BSV protocol.



And what do the supporters of the above shitcoins do? Instead of starting their own threads, they come here to the WO thread and unload all their crap on us. They endlessly talk about scaling, and how the current block size is too small, failing to understand and accept that when the need comes, BTC's block size will be increased, and it will be done in a well-organised, carefully-planned and thoroughly-tested way. And the "need" is certainly not 2017's wave of spam attacks that were organised by some of the delusional characters above.

Add to this the PM-supporting cockr0ach, with his endless Nazi talking and ad infinitum repetitions of terms like Nash Equilibrium, Schelling Point, Exter's Pyramid etc. etc. You don't have to see who's posting, you can tell it's him, because he repeats the same stuff over and over. Even The Daily Stormer (his favourite news source) is accepting donations only in cryptocurrencies (BTC and Monero). Hey r0ach, you'd better write to Andrew Anglin and teach him about how evil BTC is (Schelling point, Nash equilibrium and all...) and ask him to accept donations in gold and silver. Well, he will have to disclose his postal address for this, so that's a bit of an issue, but hey...

It's coming to you guys... (Not so) slowly but surely...

There was some interest in the antics of my neighbor and his 69 Camaro last year so I will offer an update.

His tech is scheduled for Saturday, it just came out of the garage for the first time this season and laid a solid 80 ft burnout in our alley.

All the cats in the neighborhood are in hiding.

Nice. How are the brakes?

brakes? those things again? excess weight when accelerating.

unless offroad, as then they do prove useful.

or pure electric drive, as you can use the regenerative capabilities to recover power for accelerating again.

sarcasm aside though. brakes and tires are far more important than any other mods that can be done. suspension and weight reduction are next. engine mods are last on my list. hopefully your neighbors too, at least to a point.

is suspect the cats have figured out camaros cant climb trees by now. thats what jeeps are for.

EDIT: seeing a later reply with more info, sounds like hes got a pretty sweet car there. i remember some posts about it from last year. always fun to have a gearhead nearby.

6500 is only an hour of attack, but the exchanges increased the time of deposits to 24 hours

But in general, you are right, advertising for BSV - it is also advertising and for BTC. I did not know before that BTC will can all this too in future

We have courts, [and] you know what happens when you lie in a court, you know the maximum penalty in this country for perjury? About 20 years! Great, I’m going to be in court, prove it in court! You get to send me to jail for 20 years, I get to put my evidence and other people get to put theirs. That’s how real things work in the real world.”

I always care about BTC price movements, as my bags are heavy with it. If there wasn't any upside for me in this advocacy, do you think I'd be taking the continued abuse?

And in point of truth, if you hadn't noticed, my attempts to gain recognition of the flaws within LN -- at the cost of crippled onchain capacity -- have nothing whatsoever to do with BCH nor SV, as neither of these chains suffer from anemic block size caps.

>says he's invested in BTC
>takes lame shots at BTC every chance he gets

The more breher speaks, the more I think hes a troll that lives in his mother's basement, and owns no crypto at all. Putting him on ignore. Its the healthiest option at this point. What does he actually contribute of value in terms of conversation? He can't absorb incoming information, only rehash tired rhetoric.

feel free to ignore him. i find he is a useful filter of information. ignores drama and fluff, only comments on technical stuff, with the chops to back up his views.

also as i still have some bitcoin cash from the btc/bcash_lol split (so by default abc and bsv, or whatever tickers those are under now as i havent moved them since those split), its useful to see what the "competition" is up to. as it just may effect btc price. although it sure doesnt seem to effect it much nowadays.

Always nice to discover the benefits of good tyres and limits of your suspension when your car sticks to the road but has suddenly developed a sway because you are going through the same corners 20 kmh faster.

Wilwood brakes look good.  Hadn't heard of them before.  Everyone around here swears by AP.
