Bcash is a fork. Bgold is a fork. These are forks of Bitcoin.
This is the least complicated thing ever. Roll Eyes

Let me be clear guys. I share your opinion. It is my opinion as well that bitcoin core is the real bitcoin. All I am arguing is that that is my opinion and not a fact that is in some way objectively valid.

In what fundamental sense is bcash different from bitcoin core that makes it the fork and not bitcoin core the fork of it? Bitcoin core has changed the consensus algorithm too just like bcash. We used to not have segwit enabled and bcash used to not have massive blocks. One isn't "the fork" they are each forks of the other.

#1 Ok, here is an argument for you then. When bcash forked, the market made a choice and declared bitcoin, bitcoin when the value stayed in bitcoin and did not transfer to bcash

#2 Here is another one, bcash changed the difficulty adjustment mechanism (block #478559) before bitcoin activated segwit (block #481824) and was therefore a fork of bitcoin at that instant. Then, even if you want to say segwit is not bitcoin, bitcoin forked from itself at block #481824 and then won the fork with itself and became bitcoin

Did I dumb it down enough for you?

I mean I hate doing this because it's getting really boring and I feel like everyone here should have just understood what I was saying by now but:

#1 So it's a democratic thing? Because I can tell you some of the value did go to bcash. So the fact that more went to core is what made it "the real bitcoin"? So if 51% had gone to bcash you would have reluctantly agreed that it was the real bitcoin? Even though ver's ideas are garbage? What if bcash slowly gains more and more and gets to over 50% in the future? Does it then become "the real bitcoin". If the value bounces back and forth back and forth between 49% and 51% relative to each other does the "real bitcoin" change every day as the value changes? Even if I don't go this route and accept your reason. Even if I allow that "the market decided" why does the market get to decide? You still have to say why. You can't just declare it. It just so happens that I agree with the markets decision however If ver's garbage vision for bitcoins future had won out in market capitalization after the fork I wouldn't have accepted it as "the real bitcoin" just because it had slightly more market cap. I would be here saying that core was the real bitcoin in my opinion even though it was slightly less capitalized.

#2 If that is a real reason, than you would have to say that you would call ver's version of bitcoin "the real bitcoin" if the roles had been reversed and core forked first instead of cash forking first. Are you really prepared to stand behind that?

Anyway I'm getting really tired of this and really annoyed that there isn't one single person to step forward to say that they understand what I mean. Even though I really do believe in what I am saying and I think that I have good arguments behind it even I am starting to feel like a troll at this point. So I think I am going to disengage from this pursuit.

On a lighter node. Screw lambos. I'm want one of these.

Quote
The SDR is an international reserve asset, created by the IMF in 1969 to supplement its member countries’ official reserves. So far SDR 204.2 billion (equivalent to about US$291 billion) have been allocated to members, including SDR 182.6 billion allocated in 2009 in the wake of the global financial crisis. The value of the SDR is based on a basket of five currencies—the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Chinese renminbi, the Japanese yen, and the British pound sterling.

Bitcoin's natural competitor in the fiat world and bitcoin is getting to be in same ballpark in total float size.

#1. Your scenario doesn't matter because that isn't what happened and it doesn't matter anymore, also, see #2
#2. If bcash had forked at the same block as bitcoin, you may have an argument as to which is which but it didn't so bcash is the fork. You can't change how it happened.

"the real bitcoin" will, unfortunately, always be a matter of opinion not fact.

Someone give this man a deMerit^

I am not defending Ver and his trash coin. I am as adamantly opposed to BCash as anyone here. All I'm saying is that any argument that you make that one bitcoin is objectively "the real bitcoin" breaks down.

You sir, need to lay off the crack pipe

Well then make an argument for why your preferred fork is "the real bitcoin" that is not based in opinion or some sort of logical fallacy.

This is the test to determine the real Bitcoin, it's really very simple:

I run old original Bitcoin software that was released before the 2017 forks, both hard and soft.
I use that software to make a transaction.
The chain upon which that transaction is accepted is the real Bitcoin.


(A watertight definition would need to include version numbers and reference to non-contenious early hard forks)

I am starting to see the wisdom in this simple statement... fuck.. even rosewater is making a lot of sense... omg.. omg..  Cheesy Cheesy

Yeah, on a person note. Maybe everybody that doesn't like me can bite me. How'd that be?


I think that a lot of peeps like you.  Peeps don't necessarily show our like (or appreciation) in direct ways, and in some regards, it does not matter too much how much peeps like you or not.  For example, when peeps name you as an example of something to do or not to do in regards to bitcoin, then that could be considered as a form of flattery, even if they do not get it right or even if they are trying to tease you for some aspect of your seeming on line persona...

We know that if someone lose their cool and become too emotional over internet communications, then that might reflect more about that person taking internet matters too seriously.. or if you start pumping other coins in this thread or calling for BIG blocks or some other disingenuous nonsense, then that might be another story in which you actually do become meaningfully disliked or lose credibility because of your combative off-topicness, rather than just being teased about something that you may have said in an earlier posts... and give me my pants back, you fuck!!!!!!....

and really, in the end, hopefully you participate in this thread for yourself and not based on what other people might think about you here, right?

You're beat just stop already. You can't rewrite history to suit yourself. I understand that there are many scenarios in which bcash "could" have been declared bitcoin but those things didn't happen. We are not discussing what may or may not happen in a fork situation, we are talking about what actually happened which is bcash forked from bitcoin. End of discussion.

This looks like its just starting. Solid rise with growing volumes. A nice solid crossover on the MACD and breakout above $9.5k would cement it imho. It's shut up and take my money at this point. Buy all the thing's. ymmv.   Cheesy

Well first off no cat will ever be as sexy as a really beautiful monohull. I could never argue that. And yea I love monohulls too but the wife gets seasick in my little monohull and cats, apparently, drastically reduce sea sickness so I promised her that we would buy a cat next time.


not sure I'd want to be in a knockdown in that

I think I will stick with monohulls
Apparently well designed modern cats are no less safe for blue water cruising than monohulls, or if so only marginally enough so that no one really cares. Other than that they have some other big advantages. The layout is much more accommodating to extended time aboard than monohulls generally. The way you have the whole open floorplan galley and dining that transitions smoothly into the deck as one big area and more privacy between the two separated hulls. Also cats just plain move faster. And everything stays nice and level indoors, no rocking around, you can just have a regular stove, no need for a gimble. So yea plenty of love for monohulls from me, just probably wont be what I end up buying if I do buy another yacht someday.

So, somebody in here mentioned the Abra app/wallet. So I got curious and downloaded it on my "try stuff out" phone, and I must say it looks promising.
If I got it right you can move your funds between crypto and fiat within the app, which makes theter unnecessary.
I'm not a trader, but there is one sure thing in bitcoin land, and that is that bitcoin goes up in December and down in January. So I'm going to move my play stash to SEK on the coming December top and move it back to BTC on the January dip, just to try it out.

Quote from: Anon136
Would old software know how to cope with segwit? I think it would consider newer blocks invalid on both forks and stop downloading them but it could probably still connect to peers on either network fork so I think you should be able to publish a transaction on either.

Also, why is your definition dependent upon which chain a transaction could be published on instead of which software could allow one to author a valid block? That seems like and equally valid way to think about it as in terms of transactions.

You can ignore segwit it is irrelevant for the purpose of this test. The old software doesnt generate segwit TX's
Old software (pre soft fork) still works on the Bitcoin chain, but not on the BCH chain.
The Bitcoin chain is backwards compatible with older Bitcoin sotfware.
The Bitcoin Cash chain is not backwards compatible.
Common sense tells you which is the real Bitcoin.
