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.

Here's a website that tracks 0-conf double-spend attempts on BCH:

https://doublespend.cash/

It is very rare for the transaction broadcast second to be confirmed in a block, even when it offers a higher fee.  

And 0-conf can be improved further, for example with double-spend relaying so that merchants can quickly detect fraud attempts:

Or by more finely-grained proof-of-work to discourage miners from facilitating fraud:

So why spend all this time on the topic of supposed value of zero confirmations,

Well, for my part, I am just continuing the conversation that ensued when BobLawblaw issued an edict* that zero conf 'was not the way Bitcoin is supposed to work' (* I guess BLB doesn't understand 'permissionless'). Why are _you_ spending all this time on the topic?

I could be glib and point out the 'cash' in the title.

Are you fucking serious right now ? That's your ultimate argument ? It had 'cash' in the title, therefore Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcorn ?

Well, it is obviously NOT my ultimate argument, as I went on to point out...

Those "freeking" <sic> _payment_processors_ are fucking retarded for accepting zero confirmation Bitcorn transactions.

They had a business model that was profitable in accepting zero conf at the time when Bitcoin was not perma-backlogged. You claim it is retarded to make money? Retardation comes in many guises. Some can apparently be found in mirrors in Montana and Texas.

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

Good mornin' Bitcoinland.

Still going sideways trying to pass $9k... currently $8920USD/$11444CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

Maybe this week will get it done.

In the meantime, ho hum.

BTCBTC news ===>

"  Are we experiencing the biggest, most epic bubble in the history of the [art] world? Perhaps. Or maybe not. According to market theorists, speculators and trend forecasters, the Leonardo da Vinci painting that sold last night at Christie’s New York for a whopping $451 million (62,500 bitcoin) represented red-hot greed, and signaled a sizzling risk-on sentiment for the foreseeable future.

We call for other miners to join us in burning 12% of the transaction fees collected.

This has to be one of the stupidest things I've seen.  Let's just burn it all!  It will be great, we can change the name to OneCoin!

0-confirmations ...The arguments against BCash ridiculous claim this is something new and better then BTC

Bitcoin Cash doesn't claim that zero conf is some great new thing. The claim is that zero conf is usable in commerce on Bitcoin Cash. And unusable in commerce on Bitcoin Segwit.

For full blocks, unpredictable fees, and indeterminate confirmation times all serve to undermine the viability of accepting zero conf txs. Follow that with Core's poor decision to implement RBF, and it is downright unusable any longer on BCH.

Thing seem to be on track for a static month. Come the middle of May I feel like the big short is coming as all this manipulation of alts will climax. The dump will be brutal and capitulation widespread.

I could care less about what happens to alt manipulation, but I'm agreeing with your assessment with another (for the sake of argument) "static month" for BTC price-action.

I'm fully expecting to lose 'Goosens $12,888 guesstimation-game with my vote cast for April 29th, 2018.

At this rate, I'll be amazed if we try to find stability around $10k by June 31st, 2018.

Think I went for some time in September for the $12,888 game, partly due to the fact a lot of dates were taken. I hope I am wrong & way over shot my prediction.

I wouldn’t mind sending them to you iT would be a pleasure but i hope iT Will be faster as well .....for me iT can be whitin 30 daysss or So  Grin

With regards to zero confirmation spending. That is stretching credibility a bit. Even the name of it says it all zero confirmations means there is zero confirmation.  I don't remember that ever being a thing. I always thought you need about 6 confirmations to consider it safe?

Dash has a great solution, as usual. With Dash 'instant send' a quorum of masternodes accept the transaction and instantly lock it. No double spend can then happen. Shortly afterwards the confirmation goes through into the blockchain the normal way. Just another example of how Dash already solved all these problems ages ago and the power of the tier of masternodes.

FFS - if you're going to shill an altcoin here, at least pick a respectable one.


Please define "respectable" in terms of alt coins.   Tongue Tongue

April 29 looks little bit to FAST but hopefully its time to buckle up and Just crush a few 5-digit Numbers , could be Nice to see ATH @summer times been followed by eternal ATH’s for BTC together with lows on bcash

I actually never have given a thought what my own date would be on those lists.....  Roll Eyes

Now that you say... I don't see any reason why you couldn't pick a date on your own game. It is not as if you could manipulate the ATH date in your favor or anything Smiley

Or even if you don't "participate" you should also have the fun of trying to guess the date as everyone else.

Just saying.....

Surely, zero confirmation transactions contradict satoshi's vision whether we are talking about the whitepaper itself or other implementation statements from Satoshi...

Surely, then, you can support your outrageous claim with quotes from the whitepaper or other implementation statements from Satoshi, which specifically show zero conf txs to be in contradiction, right?

inb4: 'I'm not going to <blah blah blah>'

Yes... You almost know what I am going to say before I say it... hahahahaha....  Wink

People label you as disingenuous because you seem to be smart, so frequently, what you are asserting comes off as disingenuous, because you know better (or at least you should know better). 

Accordingly, even you are aware that bitcoin is an evolving concept that is not locked into some past renditions, but is a product of what the community wants, pursuant to consensus, which does not seem to be easily achieved - yet has a process.... So, yes, do you remember mid-=2017?  The little ploy from segwit2x and NY agreement folks seemed to have backfired, but allowed bitcoin to achieve segwit consensus and the lightning network pathway that follows. 

Can you deal with it?  Apparently not.  You want to continue to pump on chain scaling and other baloney bullshit in order to attempt to assert that there is some kind of segwit/lightning network lacking that the inferior bcash proposals, such as zero confirmation transactions can deal with better.... but you and your stupid ass bcasher trolls are wrong about this, so go back to your stupid ass coin and play with your zero confirmations, rather than trying to get that sailed ship into bitcoin.. because it does not make much sense for bitcoin when bitcoin has better solutions - even if they are more sophisticated, including second layer escrowing like services.

Accordingly, even if zero confirmations may have been more acceptable in bitcoin in the past, when bitcoin was more in its test phases (lets say 2011 to 2013), currently, there is much wider adoption of bitcoin, more avenues for scammers to take advantage of vulnerabilities, such as zero confirmation, so even if you and your trusted buddies want to engage in some zero confirmation transactions on bitcoin because you trust each other, zero confirmations are no longer good to implement into bitcoin on a broader scale in which more innocent folks could end up getting screwed by such nonsense that would exist in a world of manevolent players who would like to separate you from your bitcoins.

The logic of why zero confirmations are impractical and cause too many vulnerabilities should seem so obvious on this, but you still want to argue your bcash shill talking-points to try to selectively chose some aspect of bitcoin's history and passionately argue that such practice should continue in bitcoin, as if bitcoin were locked in some past infancy status, which it is not..

Even though bitcoin is still in early adopter stages (with continuing to be quite less than 1% of world adoption), there is a considerable amount of value and confidence that should not be risked in bitcoin merely due to expediency concerns or some whining concerns of a minority who don't really seem genuine towards the better interest of bitcoin, anyhow.  In other words, stop your stupid ass whining about water under the bridge because that zero confirmation ship has sailed in bitcoin and it is not really necessary, except perhaps in a narrow set of trust circumstances of sending money to your self or between trusted parties.
