Just bought s'moar. Dollar cost averaging on its way, especially on the way down as someone else has drilled into our collective heads  Grin

I hope my timing is lucky this time around. Not so much for the small advantage of buying slightly cheaper, but as a good start for a year final bull run in bitcoin's best tradition. Every moon climb begins by tackling a hill.

Segwit and nonsegwit are all "on the blockchain."  I don't know how anyone who has been in bitcoin for a while would conclude that segwit is NOT on the blockchain?  I do believe that segwit has allowed the transactions per second to jump up dramatically and if you hit refresh on that page you will see the transactions per second jumping around between 10tsp and over 300tsp...   It seems that before segwit, there were proclamations that the bitcoin blockchain could only process a maximum of 7tps.

Yeah... about that....

Segwit or no segwit, BTC is utterly incapable of averaging 300 tps. By a couple orders of magnitude. Block weight will not allow it.

People testing the lightning network are seeing 400TPS easily between two nodes.  

Segwit let that happen.

Note the "on the blockchain" in the quote that advances the mistaken notion -- which I corrected -- that ...

Oh fuck it. If you're determined to be a loon, go ahead. Knock yourself out.

But what difference does it make, jbreher, if "on the blockchain" or not,

Because 'on the blockchain' means 'on the blockchain'.

Because words have meanings.

Because the total value accessible* on the pan-global lightning network won't even buy a single house in some markets.

*Because that total value really isn't 'accessible' anyhow.

We that is the fundamental argument is't it?  I mean you ad-hom calling me a loon is not very effective, but that aside, The choice of the Bitcoin camp is to move mass tx *off* chain.  And segwit allowed that.  The Choice of the BitcoinCash crowd is to have every transaction permanently recorded on the main chain.  I think the layer-2 way is right, and therefore I am glad to see hundreds or thousands of tx/sec to move OFF the blockchain.

Exactly! I just can't imagine my daily morning coffee and other petty, insignificant purchases being permanently recorded on-chain, and having to be copied to millions of devices on the network and preserved ad-infinitum... This would soon result in a monstrously large blockchain that contained mostly worthless junk. It just seems so pointless and a great waste of resources.

Logic dictates that, as Bitcoin grows and adoption increases, the blockchain should tend to contain mostly transactions of non-trivial value, that are either transfers of non-trivial amounts of value/wealth, or aggregates of smaller transactions coming from one or more off-chain layers, such as the Lightning Network. Such "layered" approaches are already being successfully utilized in several computer science concepts that are being used by you and me everyday. Computer networking is one of them.

Regardless of what each of us support, the Bitcoin ecosystem will find its way, and, almost by definition, will move towards the optimal solution to the scaling problem. "Vires in numeris." Nothing to worry about. Just HoDL and enjoy the show.

There were 3 things propping up BCH: 1) Bitmain exploiting Seller Market forcing customers to buy S9s for BCH 2) Bitmain liquidating its BTC stash to buy BCH 3) Bitmain using its profits. All of the above is gone now: 1) Buyers Market 2) No more BTC 3) Huge Losses. BCH is Doomed!

Lightning, or something extremely similar, would've been possible without segwit.

I'm curious to find out if the end-of-year rally will take us to $10.000.

Sure as hell hope so, I’m predicting us to end 2018 on around $12,000. This prediction is based on absolutely nothing except my own thoughts.
13402 to be exactly your OWN thoughts  Grin

yeah, of course.

Just pick any random number that seems possible, and self-servingly bullish of course.     Tongue Tongue Tongue

Just for you, Mic, I hope that BTC prices surpass $24,777 just so that you have to pay out four bets.

What does the information mean exactly?  The fund raisers have cashed out sufficiently to have been able to break even, at least? 

Also, is there a connection of the information to bitcoin? 

For example, if Ethereum and various ICOs are sufficiently done crashing, then they are less likely to bring bitcoin down? 

Sometimes, also, good news will have the opposite effect?

What kind of beverages are we drinking tonight, gentlemen? I am currently sipping on a lovely bordeau rouge 2012. I don't know about you guys but I am into wine this month.
Beer was last month, when I drank only chiemseer hell, bavarian beer. Refined tastes for refined people.

I've had some laddered buy orders sitting around for months going from $5,200 to $3,800, or something like that. Tempted to cancel those and just buy in around current levels, as bull season has begun. I'll likely buy in higher if I see confirmation that the bear trend is over.

 Bitch. We have an entire wine-fridge filled with the finest Napa Valley vintages available, over the last few decades.

 Rick and I are waiting for Bitcorn to hit above $20k/USD, before I can permanently graduate from beer to cabernet sauvignons.

 Gotta learn to live within your limits, or you're gonna have a bad time.

 Patience, my friend.

And Maybe you had to put in a random NR, i think your Some kind of lucky Guy  Tongue

Offcourse i wouldn’t mind @ all if iTs passing 24,777

You're right, friend. Patience is the ultimate key to success. However I do think one should treat themself to a nice 50 € bottle every now and then. Although it does pain me to spend money on anything but Bitcain... But how else does one keep his spirits up during the dark times of bear dominance?
