Or "He ... still actually has a bunch of mining capacity hidden away somewhere."

Oh. Would you look at that. Turns out that he did.

Believe it when we see it.

How's 2/3 of the network - up from considerable minority days ago.

https://cash.coin.dance/blocks/today

Oh too late! You didn't close your eyes fast enough.

There is none so blind as he who refuses to see.

Ok. Where do you think that hashrate increase is coming from? They were previously mining BTC? Is it leased hashpower?

Well, it is a fascinating question. And one to which I have no ready answer. I can imagine a number of possibilities, but they'd all be idle speculation.

It is interesting how close to a BTC difficulty change the BCH fork and hash battle is occurring however. Provocative.

Let's speculate then. We don't have much else to do in the meantime.

Depending on where the hashrate is coming from they could or could not sustain the "bluff" for long. Even if what Craig said in the Tone Vays interview is true, Jihan exactly knows how much hashpower they do have in total.

I dont care whether CSW, Jihan or Cobra wins the hash battle.

One Bcash shitcoin is much like another.  

Shhh, quiet you. Next thing you'll tell them is that the public will never buy any of their shit regardless.

Quit trashing their dreams. And jbreher's.

Didn't they already try that?

[edited out]
 
That is quite possible, and I've been considering this outcome too. That's why I want to be flat (out of the market) before the shitshow scheduled time - well, except for my historical, suffering long.

I'd merit you again, except I already spent some on you, and I am reluctant to shell out to legends, who really don't need the stuff.

"need" is a relative term.  Surely there can be some benefits, as a whole, to spreading out smerit sending, and surely, there are some amazing posters who receive a lot of merit, but sometimes, gotta just space out the smerit distribution a bit - even though the poster might deserve some merit for efforts and sticking to the topic with meaningful (and sometimes uniquely resonant and timely) contributions (which is also a relative consideration).

What plans are there for block explorers and electrum wallets for the new forks? The SV and ABC websites only seem to offer qt wallets. I can't find anything for everyday people, only stuff for miners and full node hosters.

Hmm. I thought the core narrative was that everyone should run a fully-validating non-mining wallet (often mistakenly called 'full nodes'). No? Say it isn't so!

That said, any means of holding private keys is fine. Paper, text files, Electron Cash (though the new changes did not come from Jonald - due diligence is in order), etc. If even holding your keys is too burdensome for you, Poloniex, Binance, and others are there to fill the gap.

Personally, I have private keys stashed in a number of mechanisms. And have no need to 'cash out', as it were. I'll just manage the keys until such time I find it advantageous to split them.

As far as active funds... I'll be pulling my standing sell orders from Coinbase ahead of tomorrow's deadline. They have stated they are 'implementing' the fork, but they so far refuse to say if they will award t- BCH holders with both (or all) forks at t+. Meanwhile, such orders remain, harvesting the volatility.

Jihan exactly knows how much hashpower they do have in total.

::*ahem!*:: Speculation based solely upon allegations not yet entered into evidence. By what mechanism do you think Jihan knows their total hash power?

Is it correct to assume that when mtgox users get their refund next summer and sell their bitcoins, then the price of bitcoin could get its biggest drop in its history?

Why would MT Gox coin recipients sell their BTC if the BTC price has already been going down?  Shouldn't they wait for the BTC price to go back up before they sell?

Likely your presumption(s) have not been sufficiently fleshed out to actually understand either BTC dynamics or BTC HODLer behaviors.

What happened? I thought you people were bitcoins first line of defense? Why are you all sleeping on the job?

Every general knows that you do not engage your old guard in mere skirmishes. They are deployed best in the heat of a real battle.

INDEED..!!!!!!!!! Wait for it.. Wait for it..!!! I have all my bags awaiting for the 45-4800 level.. Praying those get fill up asap.. !!!!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

You might get lucky with the $4800 or maybe even a bit lower than that, but the further you go down, the less likely, and even seeming NOT to be very likely, especially anything below $3k.  But what do I know?  especially regarding the future.

We're old school HODLers here.  These drops have no effect on us anymore.  We were here when one btc could be exchanged for <100 federally backed tokens.  We'll still be here when one btc  doesn't need to be exchanged for federally backed tokens at all.  We'll just use them to buy things when all other currencies are worthless.  And if we want to do so secretly we'll atomically swap them for Monero first. Nothing to see here.  Carry on.

I wish I was as impervious as you seem to be.  Of course I'm new to crypto, and don't have the HODL stash that most of you have, and I didn't buy any of my stash below $6k.

However, the only regret I have today is that I blew my BTFD wad last week.   Roll Eyes

You should never blow the whole wadd... either on the BTC end nor on the dollar end.  Perhaps, lesson learned?

Craig Wright said they bought the machines from Jihan and it was the majority of Bitmain sales during Q1. I assume Jihan knows how much they sold and its combined hashpower.
