Why is btrash doing so well ?
Probably because of the upcoming fork.

Proponents are looking forward to a 32 MB block size increase and op-code additions that could bring ethereum-like characteristics to the BCH network.

The cancer that is BCash cannot die soon enough, along with Roger Ver.
Bigger blocks is a good thing. The problem is that they are being deceptive cunts. If we had chosen big blocks and they had chosen segwit, we would still think the same thing about them, and for the same reason. And be applauding ourselves for making the correct choice.

It's the people, not the tech.

Perhaps, but we do have better tech.
By what metric? Not interested in having that debate, but it needs to be backed up by something.

Regardless of that, if the tech were reversed we would be talking about how they overly complicated things. Humans feel first and then rationalize. Especially in this sort of tribal spat.

I'm not very interested in having that debate either. I'm really tired of all the bcash vs. bitcoin debates.

I will say that segwit is a safe and elegant way to scale without increasing centralization. A conservative blocksize increase is safe, but still a last resort measure, as it inherently increases centralization.

“Immoral?” I asked him.

 

Quote from: Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman

“Suppose you could make a lot of money trading freshly harvested baby brains. Would you do it? To me bitcoin is almost as bad.”


 

Wait, WUT? Is that for real?

This is escalating quickly.... good.

So he is pro babies... 

Wonder if he has heard of BCASH?

For fork redemption, I'd recommend camku on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/BitcoinAirdrops/comments/8e95u6/hard_fork_selling_extraction_services_kyc/

He only takes a 5% cut, and does much of the work.

I purchased the newest Trezor model T, which will be shiped at the end of the month. I will use the old seed to claim all the remaining hardforked shitcoins available.

I had a chat with this guy, Camku is legit and honest.

Another Camku vouch here, great comms and had me my proceeds within the day.

Seriously considering using his services myself. I only claimed BCH, BTG & Bitcore. All the others were forked after I last moved my coins so I’ll need to get them all out of cold storage & sent elsewhere before I claim all the shitcoin’s remaining.

I will get around to it eventually.

Bingo.

Lose that, and really you lose Bitcoin's reason to exist in the first place. A centralized Bitcoin will never be any better than PayPal wrt buying stuff. And a completely centralized digital Gold 2.0 is pretty meaningless as well.

God I feel so restless these days. I think I have to quit my job and finally be a full time bitcoiner: I'm tired of this shit! I guess if I wouldn't have had these monthly buying needs I would have been out already.

You mad bro?

It is immoral.  I've posted in this thread numerous times before that the basis of human trade is barter, and the further you abstract away from barter, the bigger a scam it is.  Now, humans utilize specialization in labor, so a medium to facilitate trade that reduces friction of barter might be necessary (or maybe not necessary at all, just convenient), so you might need to abstract one step away from barter.  It just so happens that the exchange of physical commodity currency, whether it's wood, grains, physical silver, oil, etc, just so happens to be the closest thing to barter without actually being barter - the lesser of all evils.

If I try and exchange something like grains or silver with you, I'm clearly not trying to swindle you because these items have intrinsic value for humans.  It's virtually the same as me exchanging some bread for one of your cows, just slightly more streamlined and convenient. However, the second I try and initiate a trade with you using an item that has NO INTRINSIC VALUE WHATSOEVER, whether it's US dollars or bitcoins, it would make me party to a scam, even if I did not create the scam myself.

It does not matter if you're able to dump the dollars or bitcoins before they go to zero, rendering our trade amiable in circumstance, you are STILL party to a game of hot potato where you're trying to leave someone else holding the bag on a valueless object somewhere down the line, making YOU a scammer yourself, even if done in a highly obfuscated manner.   A moral person would reject entirely ANY type of system that has no intrinsic value because you're inherently trying to scam people by default.
