Terminate them all with extreme prejudice.
Please and thank you.

I think a cull is needed to pull resources towards the best projects, but that a gradual extermination of minor coins and a slower death for middling ones would be better than a general sudden carnage.

Too many pissy, crap coins is obviously an issue, but a feeding frenzy of bad, large rogue actors getting richer and bigger in a slaughter-fest might not be pretty.  

Or maybe I just need my medicine.  Nurse...?

Well NiceHash attacks could well (should, even?) increase. It might not be too pretty, either - especially as it's POW coins that will take the brunt of it.  

OK, I was wondering how shitcoins might be pruned as, in a Darwinian way, it seems sort of inevitable when there are obviously way too many with no real use case, or any likely long-term value.  But the minimal money to wreck some fairly big name coins, rattles me a tad. It will not exactly be good news if it is widely perceived that POW itself is not safe.

I know BTC is a way bigger deal to attack and almost impossible, but...

EDIT: typos
Yeah, a 51% attack is already feared so much in the community, if random coins keep falling and makes big news plenty of fools will think the entire POW system is easily attacked including Bitcoin.

I'd certainly prefer it if it was tokens, POS coins etc. under threat.  But hopefully it will end up with stronger POW ('that which does not kill me...' so to speak) and NOT certain token systems basking smugly in the sunshine as V8 noted.

I don't know what you're on my case for. Are you implying that if the ETC officials ran more nodes, that this attack would not have happened? If so, you are 100% incorrect. Such fully-validating non-mining clients are powerless to stop rollback attacks made by overwhelming hashpower.

Besides, I run a fully-validating non-mining client. Several in fact. However, I am not under the widespread delusion that this provides the system as a whole any benefit.

Fully-validating non-mining clients got segwit shoved through, albeit indirectly.

I will grant that one way at looking at that situation was that miners looked at statements by all those sybillable non-mining fully-validating clients, and interpreted them as a valid measure of economic support. But we'll likely never know. Regardless, the battle was never fought. Which, while being the ultimate form of victory, leaves the 'what if' question as an unsettled matter.

Are you implying that if the ETC officials ran more 'nodes', that the above described attack could not have happened?

Bitcoin can be the dominant crypto in the entire world and handle the world at large without a first layer privacy solution.

<edit> barring some breakthough in life extension technology, </edit> You'll be dead before BTC -- augmented with LN -- can onboard the world at large. At least in a trustless, permissionless manner, which is kind of central to the Bitcoin vision. FACT.

How does that bit of news FEEL to you?

Makes me FEEL that you suffer from deluded ingroup confirmation bias.

But I know nothing I say will affect your iron will. Carry on.

But you FEEL that some BCash variant can do what BitcoinTM, in your opinion, cannot? And you call me deluded jbreher?

Fuck off dude. Carry on with your delusion. BCash and all it's forks are already zombie shit. Nobody cares.

Deflection away from actually addressing my counterpoint is duly noted.

no disingenous dumbass. not stopping the attack. raising the alarms in good time. knowing what's happening to your money.

So... non-mining fully-validating clients provide no protective role. Got it.

And I guess 'in good time' is only in retrospect.

I never indicated that those who care to monitor things for themselves should be prevented from running their own monitoring client. I reiterate: I run a fully-validating non-mining client. Several in fact.

Or you know, useful and beneficial things like stopping the miners arbitrarily increasing the monetary supply. 

Utterly powerless to do so. All they have the ability to do is fork themselves off the chain the miners are creating.

If instead you are speaking of the users abandoning the chain, that is another matter altogether, wholly unrelated to anything a fully-validating non mining client can do.

ETC is likely to have undergone a 51% attack.

I'm accepting donations to Barry Silbert via my usual address.

Well, that escalated quickly Smiley



Wow, just wow. In a prior crypto life (like just a few years ago), it was reasoned that the coin holders would consider a successful 51% attack as a full-out compromise of the chain, and dump everything, never to return.

Now they just keep holding the coin, and the devs keep shilling. They even mentioned successful double spends!

What a fucked up crypto world we live in now. I guess you can't fix stupid. Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes

Case in point VERGE.

As an aside, I wonder if the 51% attack will negatively affect confidence (and price) in other IOHK projects, like Cardano.

Doubt it those shitcoins that get double spent are only held by speculators that care nothing about the underlying tech.
Just greed, really Verge is the perfect example.

Bigblocker Jbreher loves those 2000T blocks. He wants those heavy data centers. Even if we lose Nakatomo Consensus, he doesn't care. Just tunnelvision 'centralise' everything.

Jbreher is not a profiled educated person because he copy/paste to many lines, with a lot of nonsence, he's a wannabe.

You can discus with Jbreher about all kind of subjects but when i comes to crypto do not trust him.

jbreher thinks CSW is a rational business man, and possibly Satoshi Nakamoto... need I say anything else? Not really. He's actually a pretty good reverse barometer when it comes to crypto -- when he says something, you can do the opposite and profit.
