As im looking a bit on that 1k party thread yes, it seems they set the bar high and had to cancel due to lack of funds and logistical difficulties booking venues for large groups.

We wont have those problems with my proposal bc no funds need to be raised and we are not really booking venues, just going to massive venues that already churn tons of people through the doors each night and we will just fit in to the nightlife.

They seem to have had plenty of people ready and willing to go, just the plans were too big and grandiose so it failed to reach critical mass.

My plan can scale down to 1 person, kinda like Bitcoin only needs one person to keep it going.

Very nice development indeed.
It makes running a full node even more useful, and so compelling.
Every first class bitcoiner should run her own Bitcoin Full Node.

It has been detailed on the Bitcoin Optech Newsletter #49

Quote
Erlay proposed: a new paper by Gleb Naumenko, Pieter Wuille, Gregory Maxwell, Sasha Fedorova, and Ivan Beschastnikh describes an alternative transaction relay protocol, Erlay. Currently, when a node learns about a new transaction that passes its relay policy, it announces the txid of that transaction to all of its peers (except any peers that announced it previously). This is a very simple and effective policy, but it’s not efficient—most of the announcements a node receives are announcements for transactions it has already learned about from a different peer a few moments before, a redundancy that wastes about 44% of all node bandwidth according to the paper.

The paper attempts to reduce that redundancy using the authors’ Erlay protocol which separates relaying into two phases, a fanout phase and a reconciliation phase. In the fanout phase, a node will only directly announce new transactions it has learned about to a maximum of eight peers selected from the node’s outbound peers.

In the reconciliation phase, a node will periodically request from each of its outbound peers a sketch of short transaction identifiers (short txids) for all the new transactions that peer would normally announce to the node. Sketches are created using the libminisketch library described in Newsletter #26 which implements a highly bandwidth efficient set reconciliation technique based on error correction codes. Upon receipt of a requested sketch, the node itself also generates a sketch of all the new transactions that it would normally announced to its peer. The node combines its sketch with the peer’s sketch to produce a list of any differences between the sketches. That diff contains the short txids of any transactions that are in one set of new transactions but not the other. The node can then request any transactions it doesn’t have from that peer and proceed to querying its next peer for that peer’s sketch. This is repeated for a new peer once each second, allowing the node to quickly receive any transactions it didn’t receive via a fanout announcement. This simple two-step protocol of fanout and reconciliation describes the primary operation of Erlay; the remaining parts of the protocol described and analyzed in the paper cover the optimal parameters to use for the sketches and a series of fallback steps to take if a particular attempt at set reconciliation fails.

After describing the Erlay protocol, the paper analyzes its performance using both a simulated network of 60,000 nodes (similar in number and use to the current Bitcoin network) and a live set of 100 nodes spread internationally across several datacenters. The most notable result is that Erlay reduces the amount of bandwidth used to announce the existence of new transactions by 84%. However, it does take about 80% (2.6 seconds) longer for transactions to propagate to all of the nodes in the network. It’s still the case that Bitcoin transactions can only be confirmed once every ten minutes on average, so a three second slowdown seems like a reasonable price to pay for a major reduction in bandwidth.

Having established that the protocol is a worthwhile efficiency improvement, the paper considers the most important of its secondary aspects: its effect on privacy. Currently, each Bitcoin Core node slightly delays the relaying of transactions to its peers; this makes it more difficult for spy nodes to use timing correlations to guess that the first peer they receive a transaction from is the peer that created the transaction. Multiple simulations were run testing the effectiveness of the current relay protocol against the effectiveness of Erlay for various amounts of spy nodes among network peers, from 5% spy nodes to 60% spy nodes. In cases where the spy nodes were public nodes accepting incoming connections, Erlay always performed as well or better than the current protocol. In cases where the spy nodes were private nodes making connections to honest nodes, Erlay sometimes performed better and sometimes performed worse—but never more than 10% worse (and this worst case is an unlikely situation). The paper also notes that Erlay is compatible with the proposed BIP156 Dandelion protocol for further improving the network’s resistance to spy nodes.

Considering future possible changes to Bitcoin relay policy, the paper notes that an increase in the number of outbound peers from 8 to 32 would only increase the bandwidth used by a node to announce the existence of new transactions by 32% with Erlay compared to 300% using the current protocol. As described in the paragraph above about Erlay’s two phases, new transactions would still only be fanned out via direct announcements to 8 peers, but nodes would perform set reconciliation with all 32 peers. A four-fold improvement in relay connectivity improves the chance that time-sensitive transactions for contract protocols like LN will make it to miners quickly.

In addition to libminisketch, the code changes necessary to implement Erlay in Bitcoin Core amount to only 584 lines of code, and the CPU intensive part of set reconciliation has been benchmarked to take less than a millisecond under conditions that are worse than expected in practice. If no objections are raised over the paper, Naumenko has announced his intention to write a BIP and work to get Erlay included in a subsequent version of Bitcoin Core. The method used for transaction relay is part of the P2P network protocol (not a consensus rule), so the change could begin operation as soon as multiple users upgrade to it, although we expect nodes will also include a backwards-compatible mode to support peers who haven’t upgraded.

Well done!
I suggest you to edit your message, providing links to your threads (they look interesting), so the lazy chaps as myself can go there and have a read, and possibly merit them!

I think the threads have enough merit.
Now it is good to see how the merits come from the old members of the forum, they do not publish, but they give merit, this means that they liked the thread.

Thx, fillippone.

Anyway, I merited the post because they were worth it.
But only one
The last one of my merits.
I had more than 40 merits, my personal hoarding stash (pointless) PB.
Then I went on a spending spree.
It was fun as it lasted.
Now I am officially out of merits.

congrats to VBs  Grin
amazing the disparity in page views on your xclnt threads due (?) to their respective subforums
what's next?
-a history of forks and fork attempts -- xt, classic, unlimited, bch, s2x, all that jazz
-i ran out of ideas for you just now



LOL, What you have to do is give me many, many, merits, ideas for the next issues are not a problem. Kiss
If I do not get big bags of merit, I'll never catch you. Wink

A part of the success is also yours, you gave me several tips when I got to the thread of WO.

My threads are like gratitude to Bitcoin, if Satoshi was here I would settle for thanking him for having created Bitcoin, but unfortunately it is not so, for this reason as a good BTCitcoiner, I feel that they must be related to the origin of Bitcoin.

I have one next in mind but I need a lot of time to document it, I'm sure that if I can check all the information you like it.

Thx, V8

It may be wise to earmark a small % for security. Vegas is certainly used to high-roller parties. A bunch of jubilant geeks that are newly-minted millionaires can easily be low on op-sec. High value targets, low on paying attention could be a good spot for 'the bad guys', whoever they are. Vegas may be liberal on gun laws, but the airlines getting there are not.

I guess it was canceled because of economic reasons. if you calculate with a price of 1k per Bitcoin the price should stay above 1k if you have to pay the costs of the event afterwards. in fall 2013 it was a short spike above 1k and then the price collapsed again. I expect the same if the price will go above 100k because a lot of hodlers will then cash out.

Ok Ty for that info. My proposal will avoid this pitfall bc as I said, its flexible enough for someone to spend between $500 and 10k or more with no commitments. So if price drops 30 percent in the few weeks prior, then people can just spend 30 percent less or whatever they want.

So easy not to collect money far in advance and then not have to worry about what happens to the funds and what the price is to possibly give out refunds.

ok, but then you should keep the party exclusive. no more than 50 to 60 people in my opinion.

EDIT: just a Hat Gang party with no Gang Bang. Grin (sorry for the flat joke!)

LOL, ok "no 2 in the pink an 1 in the stink". 75 max for nightclub and stripclub. WO hats only at dinner so 25 to 50 max. If someone does one in Europe for the other hats and then a non hat party for the rest of the peeps we should be good.

The organization of this party can hardly fail, the only way it fails is if no one shows, but if 98 percent dont show its still good times.

It has to be flexible imo bc if we make it an all or nothing deal we will end up canceling the whole thing bc not enough participation to make it work.

No, my BSV scam accusation thread where I've called him a fraud several times is going strong, haven't had any comments deleted from it thus far.

I've found that there's usually a logical, non-conspiratorial reason why my comments get deleted. Double-posting is a big no-no (outside of the WO thread), going off-topic is the #2 reason. Can you post us an example of a comment that was deleted and the thread that it was in?

Meanwhile in Denmark:

My Bank In Denmark Just Offered Me A Negative Rate Of Interest To Borrow Money

The article says the negative interests were available for the banks and institutions... only till now. Now an average Joe go to the Danish bank, ask for money and get paid by doing so.

As somebody said in the comments, you can buy the whole country like that.

Crazy right? Interesting times. Sounds a lot like we are about to see the end of the financial system we knew.

Satoshi knew this shit was coming. When you think like that selling at $100k looks like a stupid idea.
