@infofront and also ..... my GF has an amazing job @ a crypto company “my friend’s fund Roll Eyes
I’m the Guy living on his girls back Roll Eyes

Maybe Bob's right and you should marry her  Cheesy
Pronto Mic, and Valentine's is just a few days away, a perfect opportunity to lock down those funds.

I’ll tell you what I’m doing for my girl for Valentine’s. I’m taking her to Manchester for a 2 night stay in a nice hotel next Tuesday & Wednesday but what she doesn’t know is.....

I have 2 tickets for the Champions League 1st leg - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich on the Tuesday Grin
She will be coming along to that, in the freezing cold Cheesy

Bitcoin has been in flat for 2 days already. It is very good. I am waiting for further growth. Cool




That is really nice work.  I'm going to be out of a job soon!

Thank. You will make hats until each user of the forum has his own personal hat  Wink. I really like your work.

Today I did another one. Someone wants to wear it?

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

You seem to be mixing up the your comparison of the situations. 

The BIG blockers were neither coming from a good place, nor did they have justification nor genuine motives for their dumb-ass talking points.

The BIG blockers were merely trying to change bitcoin's governance... and stir shit for no good reason at all.

At least, Luke has good motives, technical justifications and probably don't even need a hardfork for such tweaks that he is suggesting, if they were to go gain consensus and go through.

Furthermore, he is more than willing to work within the consensus system, rather than crying and whining like a baby.

In just few words:

Nope.

You still have to download and verify the blockchain first before you prune it.

Correct me if I am wrong.

You have a a point.

If it wasn't blocksize, they would have come up with some other stupid excuse to control the development on bitcoin.

They are basically making up stupid excuses to raise the blocksize in order to separate the core devs from bitcoin.

He is right. We've Lightning now and 300kb blocks is something more than logical!

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 ?

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".

Huh? Segwit is not going to be undone.

You have to get consensus to undo segwit, and recall segwit passed by nearly unanimous consent. 

I doubt that sentiment has changed very much, in terms of undoing segwit. 

It seems that there remains a vast majority of support for segwit that you would have to overcome if you want to undo it... a simple majority would be inadequate.. bitcoin no work like dat...

To be honest I haven't personally used pruning. I am assuming you could download an already pruned blockchain ie since the beginning till 1-1-2019 and resume from there. Not sure if core currently has that feature, but it is technically possible without much effort.

Oh no I'm agreeing with JJG, what's next?

Seriously though we need to not assume things and tack it on, this has nothing to do with Segwit. Segwit going away and 300kb blocks would be the dumbest of dumb.

No problem.. every once in a while, we might agree.  Wink   One thing is making proposals to change bitcoin, another thing is achieving consensus for such proposed change(s).

There seems to be increasing agreement that difficulties to change bitcoin is a feature of bitcoin and not a bug, so seems to me, contrary to some of the bitcoin naysayers, there is no one person or sub-community that is dictating the direction of bitcoin.. ...

"In a new interview, Square CEO Jack Dorsey says he’s working with the team at Lightning Labs to bring the Lightning Network (LN) to Square’s Cash App. LN is a layer-2 solution designed to speed up Bitcoin transactions and address major criticisms that the number one crypto is way too slow and impractical for mainstream adoption."
