Let's assume that in the year 2023 BTC is 250K without hyperinflation in fiat (as per Draper's numbers since he nailed the 10K time spot precisely).
Whatcha gonna do?

Retire?
Buy RE in trendy places (SF, NY, London)?
Buy a ranch (not for me), maybe a house in the woods?
Travel (or alternating between golfing, skiing and parasailing)?

Anybody care to say?

My choices (in the aforementioned scenario):
1. Retire (70-75% probability).
2. A small apartment, maybe NY or San Fran or even LA (got tired of all the heat in TX). Location is more important than size. Views are much better in San Fran, but the city loses it's culture mix, apparently.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/how-san-francisco-broke-americas-heart/2019/05/21/ef9a0ac0-70ea-11e9-9eb4-0828f5389013_story.html
3. A basic house in the woods-Oregon, maybe.
4. A few trips to Europe, maybe Japan. Will go to a few CL finals, hopefully!

Oh, forgot to say that I would not do anything if we keep oscillating between 5k and 20K.

Retire, move to Texas or Florida, spend my time studying computer science, parenting, being a beach bum, and growing tropical fruit. When the kid has summers off from school, take long foreign trips.

I hear you, but are we moving (presumably) in opposite directions, lol?
In TX already. Like the people, and no state tax, don't like the heat and HIGH RE taxes (they are more than three times higher than in CA and seven times higher than in Hawaii).

Haha I'm in the far northern US, and I'm tired of the damn winters. I don't know how I"ll be able to tolerate the heat.

Yeah the RE taxes in TX look a little ridiculous, and I heard they're trying to increase the sales tax to 8.25% or so. That might steer me toward FL. I love the state culture of TX, and the food (tex-mex and barbecue) though.

Should we believe, the US registration and move on with Craig Wright being the real Satoshi ? Or its just another fud which will go around in some days ? What can we do to stop this shit?
A simple registration is enough for you to believe someone who has constantly lied and refused to simply sign the Genesis block? It hasn't been approved by the copyright office just a registration, it can still be denied.

Well, the copyright office does not 'approve' claims. The registration is merely prima facie evidence of a superior claim. Any further action is contingent upon court action. Only such would lead to 'denial'.

It’s not prima facie evidence of anything other than evidence of a claim having been made,

That's exactly what I said.

Reading between the lines, it appears that infofront may adhere to the following hypothesis:
Once enough value gets bound up in segwit addresses, it becomes an irresistible honeypot. For while those addresses hold value under segwit rules, under the previous protocol rules, they are 'anyonecanspend' transactions. To the extent that the miners collude to roll back the chain, they are free to claim these 'anyonecanspend' TXOUTs for themselves. Every additional UTXO held in a segwit addy is additional incentive for them to behave thusly.

Once done, then the protocol and system would be back to the ersatz immutable 1MB block chain cap.

But hey - we've been over this already.

It's a theory. One which infofront may also not adhere to.  Huh

You laid that out pretty well. I'm not as certain as Shelby or TMSR that it will happen though.

My biggest concern with that theory is that the honeypot will be devalued after it's taken by the miners, which reduces the incentive to take it. OTOH, the segwit coin airdrop they'd get might make up for any devaluation of the 1MB chain caused by miners taking the 'anyonecanspend' transactions. And what do you think?

I could see your devaluation scenario as one strong possibility.

There is an alternate scenario, whereby the world at large comes to see the entire SegWit Omnibus Changeset period as a hijacking of the real Bitcoin (maybe or maybe not TRB in a TMSR sense), and the return to original protocol as a restoration - a righting of a wrong. In which case, the incident could result in a net increase in value.

I don't know how to evaluate the relative probabilities of such scenarios.

I still think the chain that can provide more utility to more people has the long-term greater value proposition, regardless.

Did your old account get banned for plagiarism or what happened?

Nothing happened, and is it not relevant for new people to discuss here ? Or whats the issue?

I'm guessing that the comment was precipitated by the universal belief -- on pretty solid evidence --  that Dorian is not that Satoshi Nakamoto.

“I am no longer involved in bitcoin and I cannot discuss it… It’s been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.”
~ Dorian ( satoshi ) Nakamoto

 Cool

choo choo ===> weeeee

The quote seems to have been adequately explained away.

Moved Jbreher on unignored out of curiosity, perhaps he changed.

Quite disappointed to see (as expected) the usual bullshit.



Back on ignored...lol.

::le sigh::

Yup. I've been negged. By (last time I looked) two individuals with whom I have never carried out, nor agreed to carry out, nor even discussed the possibility of carrying out, a transaction. One of them an admitted extortionist even.

Why? For merely having the temerity to utter my belief that SV is the Bitcoin-iest of all the Bitcoins. Oh! The heresy!

If you want to outsource your trust to abusers, knock yourself out. If you want to think for yourself, clicking on the Trust link in the sidebar will allow you to trace the source of the negs to their rationale and sources.

Not that I'd expect anything but taking the easy way out (with a gratuitous sideswipe doled out like a cherry on top) from you.

I wouldn't give red trust myself for speaking your own mind on a polite manner (what is usually the case) ......

But I would suggest of creating a thread BSV to discuss there what is better... I do get a bit the feeling you try to convert people and maybe try to have effect on silent reading people or newbies...cause this is the most viewed page of the forum....

I you would give a sign of don't wanna annoy people with creating a specific thread would be a real improvement IMO.....

I always have respect for people speaking there own mind, but just in the appropriate atmosphere.

Quote from: Shelby
I hope someone will post this.

I still think the chain that can provide more utility to more people has the long-term greater value proposition, regardless.

If you measure utility in fungible money, then given fungible resources are always power-law distributed, then clearly the higher valuation will be the chain that provides more utility to the uber wealthy. In that case, they need the looong history of immutability as prima facia evidence of secure store-of-value that won’t be debased nor disrupted. I am thinking the stock-to-flows model is all tied up into this prima facia driven confidence:

https://medium.com/@shelby_78386/apparently-not-400244cca3cc

If you measure utility some other way, then perhaps an altcoin for the masses has more utility. But do not expect to get more “wealthy” in fungible units of money from it. I am doing a deep think now on that notion. Actually the Bible comes into this in a major way. My next blog post will go into this and also explain how Bitcoin is very clearly a WMD created by the banksters.

Not to put too fine a point on it, you said it was prima face evidence of a superior claim.  Which it is not.  

It is evidence of a claim.  

It is not evidence of superiority, nor strictly speaking, is it prima facie.  

Unless of course like the egg in Alice, words mean whatever you intend them to mean, in which case carry on.

I have been thinking about this truism for awhile now after seeing jbreher's continuing efforts to gain a platform. Found this quote about it after some digging. I tell you true, this has served me well over the years.

Quote
Here’s the “inspired” insight: Sometimes it’s better to move towards an objection rather than away from it, to embrace a charge, rather than run from it.

I was first exposed to this maneuver in a movie. In the opening scenes of “Clear and Present Danger,” a man with connections to the president was found dead in what appeared to be a drug deal gone bad. To contain the PR damage, the president’s advisors suggested he immediately downplay the relationship and distance himself from the problem.

Analyst Jack Ryan (played by Harrison Ford) suggested just the opposite. “If they ask if you were friends,” he counseled, “say, ‘No, he was a good friend.’ If they ask if he was a good friend, say ‘We were lifelong friends.’ It would give them no place to go. Nothing to report. No story. In other words, don’t run from the problem; run towards it and defuse it. Don’t evade; invade. Embrace it, undermine its relevance, and take the wind out of its sails.”


In this particular case it is somewhat more subtle. I dont agree with him and instead of arguing over points that neither side is likely to budge from I have decided to just not engage.

Anyway..something to ponder.

You guys think we will ever see BCash @$4k again within any bullrun? I feel like I lost a fortune by not selling @4k and kept that scam hodling.

You will not find anyone here who thinks that BCH will ever be $4k again

False statement is false.

XD

False statement is false.

Are you really that obtuse?

I believe BCH will again attain $4K. I am here. Ergo...

I seriously believe that even you do not believe that.
You are lying to yourself and trying to convince yourself and you are failing at both.



On another note...

It looks like Bitstamp got recognized by NY, I think I may do the KYC there now.

So sad bittrex, Smiley

Well have you been to the Altcoins section? Everyone and their mother thinks Shitcoin X is going to upser Bitcoin and be worth 1mil.

Yes, but Shitcoin X can't trace back to the Satoshi Genesis block, and Shitcoin X's protocol does not have more in common with the original Bitcoin protocol than does that of BTC.

Quote
Like our little reality tv show move of trying to copy write Bitcoin and the Genesis paper. The fucker can't prove he's Satoshi and hell has essentially disproved it, but knows how to rile up new comers to crypto during runs doesn't he?

::le sigh:: ...aaaand we're back to 'Aussie man bad!'

And we still have not discussed the fact that Majormax was flamingly wrong in his/her blanket statement.
PLENTY of shitcoins are forks of Bitcoin that doesn't mean anything, fuck I could fork Bitcoin and put a 1 minute block with 1tb max blocks and feel like goofey everything chainer's would be drooling at it.

Yes, but that would be an even more grievous diversion from the original Bitcoin protocol. Try again.

Quote
Aussie man is the only reason the coin is still even discussed or betted on.

False statement is false.
Please show me news of BSV that doesn't involve Aussieman, I'm sure some is out there but it's an extreme low percentage.

By the way the original protocol had been changed by Satoshi himself down to 1mb, as he realized the large blocks had been an open spam attack vector. Does BSV keep bugs in their original protocol? It seems so.

let´s quickly check how sustainable bSV is rewarding miners with fees to secure the network:

Quote
Today's earned fees across Bitcoin forks...

Bitcoin: $1.8M of fees earned by miners
Bitcoin Cash: $461 of fees earned by miners
Bitcoin SV: $16 of fees earned by miners
Bitcoin Gold: $2 of fees earned by miners

Yet the SV blockchain continues. Funny, that.

Looks like a ripe target to me.

Indeed it does. Why does nobody attack it?

Is it perhaps because SV miners have hash power in reserve at the moment, and could easily re-revert any reversion made with the assumption that the reversion would stand due to lack of hashpower to re-revert?

I don't doubt they would, they could care less about immutability as well as a myriad of factors that make BTC the king.

Centralized hash on demand to rollback the chain is a thing now. LOL

I like the direction they are crumbling in.
