Karl Marx relied on his rich friend for his upkeep, his friend inherited that wealth.   Had Marx worked for a living he might have come to other conclusions based on reality
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Marx#New_York_Tribune_and_Journalism



I think its just round number-itis mostly.    Overall I rate it very bullish above 8500 and probably until 10,000 for the same reason when it might need to reconfirm previous action at that point.   9074 as a ceiling I did have drawn in, I think its the late march peak but not especially a long term solid point

9231 was the late feb low, bullish above that level would be a good measure

No. I don't EVER trust 0 confirmations. That's not how its supposed to work in Bitcorn.

Yet it did. Work, that is. Hmm.

Now you are pumping the trusting of 0 confirmations?   And you want folks to give you credibility?  I should not even be quoting your nonsense because your seeming disingenuousness seem to becoming too repetitive and obstinate.

Now that Labour Day is nearly upon us, we can engage in a stirring rendition of Solidarity Forever. We can band together against the banksters, plutocrats and career politicians.

Quote
When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run,
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun;
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one,
But the union makes us strong.

Chorus:
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
For the union makes us strong.

Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite,
Who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
For the union makes us strong.

Chorus

It is we who plowed the prairies; built the cities where they trade;
Dug the mines and built the workshops, endless miles of railroad laid;
Now we stand outcast and starving midst the wonders we have made;
But the union makes us strong.

Chorus

All the world that's owned by idle drones is ours and ours alone.
We have laid the wide foundations; built it skyward stone by stone.
It is ours, not to slave in, but to master and to own.
While the union makes us strong.

Chorus

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power, gain our freedom when we learn
That the union makes us strong.

Chorus

In our hands is placed a power greater than their hoarded gold,
Greater than the might of armies, multiplied a thousand-fold.
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old
For the union makes us strong

If the point is true it still stands, I dont know if they are trying to misdirect and imply BCH is the last bastion but the idea is a general one anyway.    Ive heard before the idea consensus forms the basis of money and value exchange.  This is one point I heard made by an economist who says Bitcoin or any other crypto will (nearly) completely fail.  He still makes the point that BTC is money because of that idea, a collective valuation and fungibility also I guess

The argument was specifically as it related to the whitepaper, not what was said later on.

...further if the entire premise of Bitcoin is based on not trusting and verifying for yourself, then SPV wallets should not exist and everyone should be independently verifying transactions with their own full blockchain. Yet low and behold, plenty use SPV wallets for convenience.

Whitepaper, section 8, SPV wallets described.

please show me the part in the Bitcoin white paper that tells us to trust 0 confirmation transactions.

I could be glib and point out the 'cash' in the title. But I don't have to. Back before the tx volume got big enough to be chronically delayed to the 'next' block, zero conf txs were routine.

There is really no arguing this point. They worked. To the point that freeking _payment_processors_ accepted zero conf txs.

OK, go ahead and 'rip me a new asshole'. Big boy.

Yes, "honest nodes" and requiring trust else it is recommended to have the entire ledger.

I am imagining this is what jbreher meant by "bcash has 0 confirmation transactions".

Hmm. I don't remember saying anything of the sort. I do remember confirming your suspicion that zero conf were once again usable under BCH. But that's a horse of a different color.

I mean, any crypto "has 0 confirmation transactions". Many cryptos, however, make them less than usable. Bitcoin Segwit, for example, goes above and beyond to eliminate the possibility with RBF.

I am imagining it because it seems very likely to be the case, not because you ever said it was the case.

the backwards bcash 0-conf crowd is basically saying "Trust, and maybe verify. But verification isn't really needed, since we trust Jihan Wu, Roger Ver, and Craig Wright so much".

Ouch. I expect more from you, infofront.

Zeroconf is not built atop 'trust Wu, Ver and Wright'. It is built atop 'we don't have overwhelming tx backlog that makes doublespends hard to detect'.

No. I am just pointing out that, before persistently full blocks was A Thing, zero conf txs worked.

Are you denying proven reality?

LN makes 0 conf moot for Bitcoin though.

You mostly have to trust Wright's research, and the mining operations of Wu and Ver.

Before I metaphorically rip you a new asshole, please show me the part in the Bitcoin white paper that tells us to trust 0 confirmation transactions.

...and the counter would be, show me in the original whitepaper where it says use LN or some other equivalent. Just because it specifically doesn't exist in the original text doesn't mean it can't in the future. 0conf acceptance is a choice and certainly reserved for those you deem "trustworthy" (friends/family) or for immaterial amounts. If you don't care to use them, don't. Having said all this, I think BCH is a joke.






Satoshi strongly implied the need for second layer solutions later on. Meanwhile, the entire fucking premise of bitcoin is based on "Don't trust, verify", but the backwards bcash 0-conf crowd is basically saying "Trust, and maybe verify. But verification isn't really needed, since we trust Jihan Wu, Roger Ver, and Craig Wright so much".

The argument was specifically as it related to the whitepaper, not what was said later on.

...further if the entire premise of Bitcoin is based on not trusting and verifying for yourself, then SPV wallets should not exist and everyone should be independently verifying transactions with their own full blockchain. Yet low and behold, plenty use SPV wallets for convenience.

If you're going to look to the whitepaper as the Word of God, then you can't ignore the New Testament. And I don't give a fuck who's using SPV wallets.

Again, Bob started this whole referencing the whitepaper bullshit. I could give two shits about what was said in a paper 10 years ago, let alone one written thousands of years ago. Tongue

Maybe you should concede on this one oblox?

It seems that you got yourself into an ambiguous position in which you are supporting bcash nonsense - with your attempt to engage with a supposedly objective analysis.

The fact of the matter is that bcashers attempt to assert that their onchain scaling is more in line with satoshi's vision.. and further the white paper then becomes relevant to their stupid-ass self-selective originalism arguments - in spite of their wanting to have their cake and to eat it too, with the zero confirmations nonsense....   

Surely, zero confirmation transactions contradict satoshi's vision whether we are talking about the whitepaper itself or other implementation statements from Satoshi... and yeah, who gives a ratt's ass about satoshi, because now bitcoin has become a product of later consensus, anyhow, including the current direction with segregated witness and lightning network. 

I think that bringing up the white paper is a way to use bcashers' contradictory arguments against them, even though who really cares what they are saying anyhow because they are disingenuously pursuing attacks against bitcoin and a likely failing alt that may take more 20 years to play out its ongoing attack drama.

Due to it's deflationary and borderless nature, central banks will eventually be forced to hold BTC as a portion of their currency reserves.

Forced?  Yea, no.  Nothing is a real commodity currency unless you can hoard it and force others to pay you ransom for it.  Bitcoin has NO such fucking characteristics.  It doesn't matter if you idiots try and hoard dogecoins or bitcoins, there is nothing you can do to force me or anyone else to buy your pump and dump.  Silver, on the other hand, I can hoard it and force you to pay me ransom due to it's wide variety of uses.

With shitcoins people will simply create their own and bypass you if you try and hoard it to force others to buy your imaginary, artificial scarcity token.  Artificial scarcity has no value.  The business central banks are in is a business called seigniorage fee.  Their goal is to sell you worthless paper or tokens for huge markup (seigniorage fee) to finance their mafia.  Central banks trying to hoard shitcoins and pay teenagers who mined them with videocards huge seigniorage fee is the EXACT OPPOSITE of how a central bank works.  It will never happen.  The CB would either cease to exist or issue their own shitcoin and try to force you to use it with guns first.

The only exception to this rule is if bitcoin was entirely a govt orchestrated operation in the first place to scam people into a cashless society slave system where all transactions are traced and monitored and they already acquired most of the supply long before now.  There is a lot of evidence of that with things like "how to make a mint" and the fact In-Q-Tel was buying up all the coins at something like the $1-2 range after an orchestrated market crash they probably helped initiate.  So whether you like it or not, you are heavily funding the CIA/Jew World Order and it's black budget by using these worthless artificial scarcity tokens.
