((they)) may not be able to trace some transactions and link them to people now, but i am certain they will be able to do so to a large extent in the future. they will be able to go back as far as they want as its all public anyway. and i would rather not have the IRS, or whoever, make my life miserable down the road.

Yep, tax office depending on jurisdiction has like 10 to 20 years time to jail you for dodging taxes.

Via chain analysis and kyc on exchanges .gov will know what you do, hard to escape this.

yup thats the way i figure it. sure be a drag to be lounging in my mega yacht 10 years from now and suddenly have 3 letter agencies crawling over your life, all because you tried to avoid paying a few thousand in taxes.

?? So you actually RL use it ? What for, where, to who ......?

On the new internet the "MetaNet"
Homepage for it  https://www.agora.icu/

Ah, OK, so nowhere then. Kind of as I suspected...

Quote
We estimate the website value of agora.icu is currently at $ 278 USD and reaches roughly 361 unique users each day that generate 381 daily pageviews with a daily revenue (from advertisements, i.e Google AdSense) of $ 0 USD approximately.

http://www.siteworthtraffic.com/report/agora.icu

Your observation of very little user count is likely valid.

However, the use of Google AdSense as a means of measuring revenue on a system that was expressly architected in order to use other than eyeball advertising for its revenue model is beyond stupidity.

You guys think we will ever see BCash @$4k again within any bullrun? I feel like I lost a fortune by not selling @4k and kept that scam hodling.

You will not find anyone here who thinks that BCH will ever be $4k again

False statement is false.

XD
Well have you been to the Altcoins section? Everyone and their mother thinks Shitcoin X is going to upser Bitcoin and be worth 1mil.

Yes, but Shitcoin X can't trace back to the Satoshi Genesis block, and Shitcoin X's protocol does not have more in common with the original Bitcoin protocol than does that of BTC.

Quote
Like our little reality tv show move of trying to copy write Bitcoin and the Genesis paper. The fucker can't prove he's Satoshi and hell has essentially disproved it, but knows how to rile up new comers to crypto during runs doesn't he?

::le sigh:: ...aaaand we're back to 'Aussie man bad!'

And we still have not discussed the fact that Majormax was flamingly wrong in his/her blanket statement.
PLENTY of shitcoins are forks of Bitcoin that doesn't mean anything, fuck I could fork Bitcoin and put a 1 minute block with 1tb max blocks and feel like goofey everything chainer's would be drooling at it.

Yes, but that would be an even more grievous diversion from the original Bitcoin protocol. Try again.

Quote
Aussie man is the only reason the coin is still even discussed or betted on.

False statement is false.

Nodes set the rules, not miners
If the majority of miners mine blocks against consensus rules, as defined by nodes, nothing happens, as mined block, even if the longest chain is produced, are not relayed trough the network as rejected by the nodes.

The only option a so-called 'node' has when it encounters a chain it doesn't like is to orphan itself from that chain. And hope it can find another it is happy with. If the miners en masse move to a new implementation, each and every so-called 'node' merely fucks itself individually.

So, he is saying that volatility is "steadily" increasing during the last three years?
Lol, it does feel this way, regardless.

Ok.. so from the FAQ on that page:

Quote
How volatile is Bitcoin relative to gold and other currencies?
For comparison, the volatility of gold averages around 1.2%, while other major currencies average between 0.5% and 1.0%.

so the above numbers don't seem very high.. until you compare them to gold and USD....

Merited by infofront (1)


The immutability of the 1MB blocksize still stands if we throw out the word "protocol". Satoshi knew that once he slipped that blocksize limit into the core client, it would be there forever, and become the de facto standard in all bitcoin software implementations. That's why Garzik and the others were opposed to it at the time. Satoshi said that it was temporary, but he knew enough about game theory to realize 1MB blocks would become a Schelling Point within the bitcoin network if it was left in the core client long enough.

I agree fully with the above but unfortunately the 1MB block size has already been abandoned when segwit was introduced.

Reading between the lines, it appears that infofront may adhere to the following hypothesis:
Once enough value gets bound up in segwit addresses, it becomes an irresistible honeypot. For while those addresses hold value under segwit rules, under the previous protocol rules, they are 'anyonecanspend' transactions. To the extent that the miners collude to roll back the chain, they are free to claim these 'anyonecanspend' TXOUTs for themselves. Every additional UTXO held in a segwit addy is additional incentive for them to behave thusly.

Once done, then the protocol and system would be back to the ersatz immutable 1MB block chain cap.

But hey - we've been over this already.

It's a theory. One which infofront may also not adhere to.  Huh

It’s something but it’s not math
