Don't talk titties to me, man. One thing I sorely miss from the everyday ATH season!

On second thought, it's actually a pair of things.

Where have all the big blockers gone?  

Where is our friend Gab0? Where is Peter R?  Who will lecture us on the burning necessity of big blocks now that they are no longer with us?

Should we start an “adopt a big blocker” program ?


Calling all BIG BLOCKERS.



HELLO??



Are you there?




HELLO?  



Echo,    Echo,






Echo.



I note that we probably should not taunt or invite BIG Blockers, because some of those nutjob Roger Ver(y) supporters might just show up and ruin our MMMMMoooooooo.

WTF happened to the mempool? This is not the bitcoin i know. (i kid, i still remember 0 fee tx's)

Fees are as low as 1-10sat/b right now. I mean. What the fuck? https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/

Could it be that those spamming fucktards finally realized if bitcoin goes down they do too?


Didn't I see another post in this thread that gave a pretty decent rationale?  

It seems that the ongoing spamming was costing a pretty decent chunk of change on an ongoing basis, and it was seeming not to pay off, and it was also seeming to have some opposite effects too.  First of all the cost of keeping it going, and second of all it was causing greater financial motivations for the implementation of lightning - which was not a desired outcome.

checks out with what i said 2 messages above.

Now they have no other chance other than being competitive/cheap. Or else LN will destroy them.


We may have to actually wish luck to them.. just as a token of our condolences.

Just because a certain exchange is in the lead of a trend does not mean that they are leading the price movement.

Sure.  I would welcome alternative explanations of what is going on in the market because I am trying to puzzle it out.  I am not saying that I am right. 

I was not accusing you of anything like that, but I just wanted to point out some possible misleading inferences in your post language.  And, over the years, several of us have read the kinds of inferences that were frequently made about "china leading" or even skorea leading or Japan, and the lead follow is much more complex than that, and likely changes with time and remains a kind of symbiotic relationship between exchanges with some exchanges having more credibility and pull than others, even if they might not actually lead in trade volume... Bitstamp, for example... has retained decent amount of persuasive power.. even though from time to time, it has gotten out of sync with the prevalent BTC prices, too.

All good points.  

The spread between Gdax and Bitfinex hs started shrinking.  It was as high as $500 and has now dropped to $300.  This suggests that the market has processed the risk of Tether and decided it is not such a big deal after all.  

If the spread keeps shrinking and gets down to say, $100, that would be bullish.

Where have all the big blockers gone?  

Where is our friend Gab0? Where is Peter R?  Who will lecture us on the burning necessity of big blocks now that they are no longer with us?

Should we start an “adopt a big blocker” program ?

They all had a nervous breakdown, and then through the advice from their families they joined BBLA: Big Blocker Lovers AnonymousTM.

Right now they are all sitting in a circle with CSW, Roger, and Jihan, and going through the denial phase together as they contemplate how R3kt they are that SW and LN are spreading like wildfire. They'll probably jump out the window when Core decides to raise the Bitcoin block size to 2mb.

That circle they are sitting around in is not for support and therapy. They are just a bunch of vultures hoping BTC will die. Unfortunately, for them, Honey Badger won't die.

Where have all the big blockers gone?

Since there are no walls to watch, and price discussion gets boring during sideways skating, let's talk about an issue that I'm afraid will resurface in due time: blockchain spam.

At the moment, the situation is peaceful. Spam has vanished, and tx fees are back to sane levels. There have been several explanations offered for the end of spam, most of which are plausible or have some merit. It might be that it was too costly to sustain the attack. It might be that someone is moving shop. It might be the attackers became afraid to push LN towards success. It might be that Coinbase withdrew support by fixing their unforgivable withdrawal arrangement (either intentionally or simply as a consequence of other choices).

The point is: most of the people on this forum believe they know who the attackers were and why they did it. For the time being, they are defeated. They might or might not have another try at it. I am concerned with a future when some more powerful opponent delivers a spam attack - backed by the full financial power of a small (or large) nation. That could be an expensive way to shut up the bitcoin network, but it can be fairly successful, especially If you can eat up the loss and hide it inside a large budget by slightly cooking the books.

I think we need someoneto come up with a partial solution to the spam problem. My guess is: if such a remedy is ever found (which I'm totally not confident about), it will be a game theory person to deliver it.

When world famous economic professors are reduced to trolling bitcoin on twitter, surely that's beyond the "then they fight you" stage ?

Isn't this now "then we win" ?

Who cares? As long as at least 1 person does some mining, we are fine.

I'm actually looking to pick up at least 1 S9-performance-equivalent miner, just to keep a single system mining for the principle of it, to go along my full node and LN node.

Don't want to support Bitmain.

Doesn't seem I have any other options available to me at this time.

Here's hoping those products out of Japan come online soon, or dare to dream Bitfury ever reconsiders coming back down to earth.


It seems that if you are a decently-sized residential property owner (not that you are fat), then it could be cost efficient to include some likely low cost energy source, whether that is solar or windmills or geothermal, but yeah, if you begin to generate too much energy, then you will be incentivized to add more miners, too.

I recall that there are some folks researching into ways that they can either use the heat or generate some additional electricity from the mining heat by-product.

Definitely. If an economics professor can't keep his mouth shut about Bitcoin, we've likely already won.

Also, realR0ach will fkn love this:

"The child of Iranian Jews, he [Nouriel Roubini] was born in Turkey and grew up in Italy. After receiving a BA in political economics at Bocconi University, Milan and a doctorate in international economics at Harvard University, he became an academic at Yale and a visiting researcher/advisor at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Federal Reserve, World Bank, and Bank of Israel."

Here's another load of superficial tosh he wrote:

He's got half a million followers. A good place for a "healthy debate" Wink
