The blockchain is to be hidden, plain and simple

Too many secrets

https://twitter.com/joonian/status/1013337871791673344

These digital bank robbers stole $1.2 billion from 2013-2018 and laundered a lot of it through bitcoin. How much impact did this have on the bitcoin price?

The Segwit theft would require a hard fork.

And if you are going to have a successful theft by hard fork, you may as well steal from the legacy addresses as well. 

This is just more Bcash lol bullshit.

Anyone can spend Segwit coins argument originated from the BU era. Bcash'ers are former BU supporters.

Just rehashed old FUD. Unfortunately some people falling straight into that trap.

And if you are going to have a successful theft by hard fork, you may as well steal from the legacy addresses as well.  

This is just more Bcash lol bullshit.

The chain committing the "theft" could not be considered a hard or a soft fork since it it would be implemented by a miner running a node with an older version of Bitcoin. The older software will simply be following the same old rules that it understands. In order to be considered a fork, rules need to be changed. In this case, if the chain were to truly split because all the nodes could not reach an agreement, the chain that would be considered "forking off" would be the chain following the Segwit chain. After all, Segwit is considered a "soft fork." Please note that I am not convinced that both these chains could survive for long, simutaneously. Either one or the other is going to be orphaned off.

I thought that we already did some variation of this in August 2017?    There were various decisions to move forward with segwit that involved threats to get left behind and required at least 95% to follow.. then the new rule set was locked in.  If there is a desire to go back to some old rules, then there is a need for more than 51%.. and more likely to be something like 95%, but of course the consensus rules could be changed.  Alternatively, if there is a suspected threat, then could there be rule sets that address the threat?  

I recall some kind of BIP that went into place that pretty much kicked some nodes off the network if they were running certain kinds of attack software.. wasn't it the nodes that signalling support for segwit2x or some other behavior that was no longer be allowed, and had like a 1 year period before it would become strictly implemented?

I think part of my point is that if there certain suspected security problems, such as deviant minority nodes (miners) then there could be ways for the network to discontinue to recognize them by rules that are agreed to by the vast majority. and even if that is not a hardfork, exactly, the effects are nearly the same as a hardfork.

In this hypothetical case, the "attack" nodes would be previous versions of core software. If this attack is indeed viable, and Bitcoin Core wanted to protect the Segwit consensus chain, they would need to implement a hard fork. It would be considered a hard fork because the new rules could not be made to be compatible with previous versions of Bitcoin Core. Now we all know that Bitcoin Core's philosophy is to not implement a hard fork unless it is the most dire of emergencies. My guess in such a situation, Bitcoin Core is just going to let the best chain win. Honey badger don't give a shit.  Cheesy
Edit: Actually, Bitcoin had a problem with the chain reaching consensus for months after implementing BIP 16. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Pay_to_script_hash They just waited until all of the miners finally got on the same page, by all of them updating to the correct software.

I just don't get why peops link pdf files here.
Make sure you know what your doing when opening them, they can contain executables.
Maybe the pdf that was linked contained no exe?
Additionally, I suppose people reading these pages would know what to do when the system asks them if it's OK to execute stuff they just downloaded without knowing.

(No flame intended.)

More the point, their opsec is good enough that it doesn’t matter if the computer they use to browse the web is compromised.

The point I was making is if you did not already know this then you do now. BTW d_eddie, "maybe" your system is now compromised is a bad way to learn opsec. Wink




This deserves a repost.

There is nothing worse than a warm gin and tonic.

Funny you mentioned it, I just had a T&T. Smiley

Segwit transactions are valid under the old rules.

Yes, for some value of 'valid'. As but one example...

It would take a hard fork to make Segwit transactions invalid.  

...but it would not take any fork to interpret segwit txs as anyonecanspend.

LTC and ETH bubbling up relative to BTC

I have been watching these ratios for a while with my ladders, in the past this has often been an indicator for coming strength in BTC.

FTFY

Of course the concern you raise would be valid in the BCH context where there are no full nodes to patrol the actions of the miners.  

As Roger loves to say, full nodes only get in the way. Darn tooting they get in the way of fraudulent miners.

Amir has been tied up in some dodgy stuff in the past.

As I write this, Taaki is in the process of recruiting the first five members of his academy: they will have to relinquish any other responsibility or commitment, undergo a period of “ideology training”, and live an ascetic life in the property Taaki will rent. There will be no salary other than “participation in historic action”.

This sounds as much the makings of a cult as Bitcoin development.

I wonder how long until some Bitcoin Liberation Front emerges out all this shit and starts kidnapping banksters.... hmmm no, we don't need that shit. It's sad how all nice things end up being politicized for all sort of random purposes.
