No it isn't. Just because 99.9999999999999% of people right now don't own Bitcoin, doesn't mean it can't "handle the world at large".

You can't prove that it can.,
And you can't prove that it can't

Bitcoin can be the dominant crypto in the entire world and handle the world at large without a first layer privacy solution. FACT. How does that bit of news FEEL to you?

Prove this assertion, you cannot.

And you can't prove that it can't.

So impasse? Nanner nanner?

OK, you win if you can get one Core Dev to agree with your assertion that a second layer solution is as secure as a first layer solution.

Done go get that quote. And I'll give you 25 merit.

AFA what BTC can handle, there would not be a need for the work being done on lightning right now if it could handle those people already. Duh that is why lightning is being developed, or did you think it was already done?

Anyone 80x? Because I feel like I should have 80xed.

Oh the bright side. Looks like 4k is back on the menu, boys! About time too. I can't stand these sideway actions.

Ballsy move to long right now, I approve. Smiley

Ok if you are going to debate with me, you need to stop putting words in my mouth or twisting what I type. I never fucking said this, anywhere. I said that Bitcoin can still become the dominate crypto and service the whole world without a first layer privacy solution.

Probably old, but I've fallen too far behind over the holidays to check.

Step one towards crypto equity looks about done. Which should drive demand for Bitcoin as trading stock against BTC becomes a possibility that will increase liquidity. Hopefully not too late for capital flight out of stocks into corn in what seems like an upcoming recession.


After this it seems like a matter of time until stock and crypto become equivalent.

Non-story, as Tim Sweeny admitted himself.

It was one of their payment processors "trying something out".
It's a great story.
Monero afficionados had five days in the sun.
Then reality hit them in the face like a bottle of Barolo

Haha, good one. I was at casino being a donkey and missed it mostly, too bad would be funny that a childs game would give a shit about privacy.

Go back and reread our exchange I made that exact reply as to why edge cases are not covered in which you attacked my post and now you say you never said that. Well arguing that I was wrong when I said that is the same as saying it is not true.


OK, I have grabbed the post and added it here.

Quote
For instance privacy as a second layer will never compete with a first layer solution period, go ahead and ask any expert you want.
Clarify/quantify 'never compete'? Bitcoin is competing the hell out of all the other shitcoins, and winning like a boss. Its utility, security, and universal adoption is miles ahead of anything else.

The vast majority of Bitcoin users feel the privacy issue is a non-argument. All of your online devices are insecure, your data you freely give over to OS creators and Social Media platform providers, where it is then sold, or hacked, or both. Your IoT devices are listening to your every conversation. How about we fix those privacy problems first, eh?

Crypto doesn't care what you FEEL, it doesn't change facts.

Bitcoin can be the dominant crypto in the entire world and handle the world at large without a first layer privacy solution. FACT. How does that bit of news FEEL to you?

Maybe we disagree on what the highlighted means as I believe it is a fact that nothing can "dominant crypto in the entire world" without providing all the services that the world needs, one of which is privacy.

They'd have to have a mountain more money.

https://cointelegraph.com/news/ethereum-classic-51-attack-would-cost-just-55-mln-result-in-1-bln-profit-research and I'll bet that figure is way lower now.

And ETC can die or be rogered to pieces without too many other people caring. If you did the same to BTC there wouldn't be anything left to short.

The Bcashes are much more likely candidates but the only people spiteful enough to do it are the ones keeping the Bcashes alive.

Evidence come after thinking : if Bitcoin was created to avoid gov's control, how stupid gov are to accept and approve Bitcoin

not money, hashing power.
money (tokens) in POS blockchains, hashing power in POW (btc).
