He's a zany the one isn't he, is he trying to force lightning network adoption with a stupid move like that? That's the only logic thing I can take from it.

No it's not, there's no reason to have a big dramatic messy change like that to take such a tiny step back when we would have to change I back in a few years of adoption even with lightning. There's no reason and the current blocksize it plenty small enough for storage on nodes.

Please tell me you are joking; it's so hard to detect sarcasm Sad

In the interest of maintaining civility, and playing your scenario out, do you foresee 150kb/150kb == 300kb or 300kb/300kb == 600kb Blocks, accounting for SegWit data ?

This last of the v8 fool is ALWAYS shilling for this crooked Bitfinex exchange.  Everyone and their mom knows the exchange is a criminal fraud, yet he pretends like it's legit.

r0ach what if you and I go to look for hitlers lost gold
there much worth of BTC if we find it .... its out there somewhere

is busy buying > A gold-backed cryptocurrency called “PayMon” has reportedly been launched in Iran.

https://www.coindesk.com/gold-backed-cryptocurrency-launched-by-iranian-banks-report
This should go well being a country backed cryptocurrency and by a bank for that matter.
It will go just as it did for the release of the pertro by maduro. Now he is looking for an exit plan for trying to smoke screen its citizens.

Good morning guys.

Snowpocalypse continues in the Great NW. In a developing story from late last night, we might have some insight as to why ltc has been so volatile recently. #dyor

Looking across the charts temporally you can really see the development of the scenario I described earlier.

Even though we won it, I know, you don't want to live through the same shit we did last year but take a deep breath and listen.

Luke basically says, if the blockchain grows at this speed it will be almost impossible for an average Joe to start a full node in a few years.

Take a look at this chart:


https://www.blockchain.com/en/charts/blocks-size?timespan=all

It grows 50gb/year.

In 5 years, you'll have to download 500gb data to start your own node. And if you already say "fuck no i am not doing it", now imagine how would it look like in 10 years.

Luke probably won't succeed this time but people will understand him when it is too late.

This is a win for the bcash team.

***Maybe that's what Rodger aimed in the first place. He knew he would lose the first round but he still insisted on the big blocks and didn't accept defeat. Now he has a very strong ground even the Roger haters don't agree with Luke and see him as a crazy man.  Cheesy

 In 5 years, technology and infrastructure should hopefully have further matured to the point where you start up Bitcoin for the first time, go and take a nice deuce, come back to your system a few minutes later, and should be mostly good-to-go.

 Downloading 500gb for a node 5 years from now should be such an absolute non-issue, it's embarrassing that people are seriously considering taking a backwards step right now, and failing to see the larger picture.

 And you wonder why I'm legit taking crazy pills  Undecided

No, I'm not joking! Chinese mining cartel is selling every bitcoin they mine to defend bcash price. Lowering blocksize is the ultimate argument of showing them what they do is futile. Plus, it will be a big incentive for Lightning adoption!

I support 300kb blocksize too. Segwit increased the effective blocksize and it's best if that is undone. It won't happen though, and in a way I'm happy that it's so hard to make large changes (even though this one would be positive).

Never sacrifice security for something pitiful like "low fees".

Totally not taking in the technology growth, in the last ten years. In 2010 in the US the average down speed was around 5 megabits per second. Currently it is close to 20mb/s and with 5g coming soon we could see all the rural areas that areas that big down that list. (US average broadband speeds are 98mb/s)

Most crypto users I would guess are at around 100mb/s while gigabit infrastructure has increased throughout (it's an option for myself and most likely my next jump)

At gigabit speed a 500gb download would take right around 1.1 hour.
Really that's not an insane requirement at all and if we are at anything over 1 gigabit it will be less. (It looks like ISP are doing 10gbit next) if you have a 10 gigabit connection it would take around 6 to 7 minutes. I think that's fine and in 10 years at 10gigabit a second a 12-14 minute download for the entire blockchain would be no issue.

Good evening brother. I am sure I missed a lot of pages. These days my real life is too annoying. Killing my entire days. Luckily I was able to buy some bitcoins at $3,590 🙂

I am happy.
