IMHO the only thing that can justify PoW change is Quantum computing attack on SHA2, and Cuckoo Cycle is Quantum resistant btw. Doing it now is jumping in the abyss just for the sake of change.

Core devs can come out and say "We upgrading the btc protocol to keep it safe against Quantum computers so a PoW change is necessary".

Bitmain will have no ground against this.  Grin

People who can't compete always want to change the rules of the game.
Especially if the game is about keeping open competition.

I don't care if there is only one shovel maker. Good for them for being successful at what they do.
I do care, if they can charge whatever they want for their shovels, to the point of suppressing shoveling when they don't want it to happen.

Monopoly is never good, except for the monopolist. Don't jbreher yourself into a corner.
If they raised prices a hundredfold from here, and it was still profitable to buy their stuff, then that's fair game.

The market can bear whatever it can bear. Let's not turn into pretend-communists.
You don't need to be a communist to expect markets to be as efficient as they can be. In fact, market efficiency is not a primary concern in communist utopy. For capitlaists, however, Monopolies and oligopolies are the primary source of market inefficiency.

Quote
And why would you compare me to yogi? That makes no sense.
Nothing personal, and probably not too accurate. All right, I apologise. The point is, although you come from very different places, you can end up arriving at the same point. Big blocks, miner power and progressive irrelevance of the network of users (as in "full nodes").

Adam Smith was right. Stop trying to control things and everything works out. So there is only one shovel maker? That means their products are functional and their prices are reasonable. The moment either of those stop being the case, someone else will overtake them.

Green is an ugly color.

As for yogi. If bcash was objectively better than bitcoin then I would be supporting it. I go with what works, not what I would like to work. It's not, so that's the end of that.

The invisible hand only works if there are no hidden hand-choppers, like unnaturally high entry barriers to the business or vast discrepancies in the price of energy.

I think it's an English mistake. I read it as "less and less people own homes". Which is true.

 I wondered about that but the post seemed well-written otherwise.
Thanks.

I'll point out just one: delayed access to leading edge mining hardware. A jus primae noctis of sorts, imposed by the lord to the commoners.

That is your mistake Ibian. You think you are somebody here with your
“Legendary” status. In reality you are a foolish person. Also can tell from how u speak that you most likely are not
worth very much money.




you must be new here....

And another whole week of constant slow down-movement.

Well, maybe it goes to 10k again in the coming months.

I very much agree with Ibian, Itod and Conspirosphere.tk.

Mining must be decentralized through competition, through research into the use of renewable energies, research into more efficient and economic technologies, through innovation, etc. Go fuck all the Keynesians who think it's a good idea to change the PoW without a real threat. For that they have altcoins or even Bitcoin Gold. If you consider a PoS as a possibility, for that you have ethereum and hundreds of other tokens.

Twitter media aren't working well, no suitable MIME type and stuff. I found a link to the full talk on YouTube, but it's almost 1 hour long. Could you provide an approximate time or a YouTube link to the appropriate time?
