Edit:  no need to take my word for it.  This is what Andreas says:



You seem to be confusing SegWit with the other cruft bundled into The SegWit Omnibus Changeset.

For those who love to discuss Satoshi's identity and different theory

Quote
Paul Solotshi Calder Le Roux, a 46-year old criminal mastermind, is the creator of encryption software E4M and TrueCrypt (the cryptography encryption software Satoshi Nakamoto likely used to lock up his 1 million BTC), and author of an uncannily similar manifesto to the one in Bitcoin’s whitepaper in 1998.

But that’s not all: Paul Solotshi Calder Le Roux employs similar spelling and language in his writing style to that of Satoshi. He’s interested in gambling (Bitcoin’s initial code had a poker client included), and what’s more, he’s been in jail since 2012 – that’s probably the reason why his 1 million Bitcoin hasn’t moved

On a side note, I think Kenzawak and my path could cross sooner. The only drawback I can think of is I travel as a bag packer, and he's a slightly fancy traveler. Cheesy

I'm not that fancy trust me.
That's my ride :

The problem with metals, besides that I can't buy a jug of milk with it, is that tyrannical states can and will just take it. Metals are for the rebuilding phase, not the purge phase. And bitcoin is for getting a safe distance while it all blows over.

Get off the drugs.  It's far easier for the state to make Bitcoin unusable than metals.  And confiscating metals is even less feasible than confiscating guns.  Even Shlomo Nakamoto says Bitcoin is useless vs state actors.
Then you don't understand the tech, or politics, or both. Bitcoin is global. Somewhere is going to be fine with it, even if your local corner of the world ain't. And if you are not willing to leave a soviet-level state, then that's entirely on you.

Because it's so useful if the G7 or G20 banned Bitcoin but someone in North Korea has a 486 with the magical ledger of imaginary, valueless tokens on it!  The state can easily destroy and prevent the use of Bitcoin because running a police state in the digital world is cheap and cost effective (see Facebook, Twitter, the nation of China) while running a police state in the physical world requires orders of magnitude more resources.  Pretending it's harder to stop Bitcoin than metals is a flat out lie.  They require the govt's own infrastructure to even work at all.

Martin Armstrong has been talking for years about people getting harassed for transporting precious metals across international borders, or having the PMs confiscated.

PMs are almost completely useless, aside from international settlements and reserve holdings.

Edit: Open your eyes - we're not heading toward a more open world. Governments around the world are starving for money, and putting tighter restrictions on moving money internationally.

And what is the practical use of LN? Why is LN "necessary"? And what even is MAST?

Personally I think the jury is still out on LN.  I think there will be a wave of competing second layer solutions of which LN, RSK and Liquid are just the start.  

But decentralised instant Bitcoin transfers are pretty handy.  Particularly because you don't want those coffee purchases clogging up the main chain.

As for MAST - Bitcoin already uses merkle trees.  A block is just a collection of transactions in a merkle tree format.  MAST is a twist on the idea:  Merklized Abstract Syntax Trees.  Basically MAST allows for complex scripts to be appended to the Bitcoin blockchain with just a tiny proof recorded on the blockchain, so the vast majority of the script sits offchain, creating the ability to create Bitcoin smart contracts which are largely offchain.  And because they are off-chain, they are private.      

Well, they're not private because they are offchain. They are private because the only part exposed to the public is the merkle hash. Of course, to activate them, one must reveal the script corresponding to the hash. So no longer private. Yes, multiple separate scripts can be bound up in the single MAST hash, and only the redeemed script requires revealing. But any operative one does. And of course the fact that the script is not onchain means that script management is the responsibility of anyone who might want to redeem a script bound up in that MAST. Yes, that's not really conceptually much different from key management. But still a non-trivial issue.

Most importantly: not currently a part of BTC. Standard disclaimers apply.

I'm going to take a silver coin on my next trip (in 2-3 months time probably). If it causes any problems whatsoever I will report all the details here. Consider it a public service.

Afaik transaction malleability breaks LN.  So Segwit is necessary for LN as it fixes transaction malleability.  Also BIP 114 for MAST requires Segwit.
I think that the malleability bug is separate from the segwit. I think segwit required the fix in order to work. So segwit in on itself is not required for LN.
This is an important difference if true. Can anyone confirm/deny?

Segwit is ABSOLUTELY needed for LN to work.

In current implementation, sure. But conceptually, no. Don't take my word for it - gmax said so XD. 'Something like LN' is simplified by a malleability fix. But not utterly dependent upon. And segwit is but one of many possible malleability fixes.

I used to always have a 1oz gold eagle in my pocket. Out for a bite ... off to work ... air travel, whatever. I gave up the practice some years ago.

In theory, should not be a problem. US CBP does not admit to caring about anything under $10,000. Would take a rather large-ish silver coin to get to that limit. Then again, why tempt fate?

About the 100k party, I really would like for it to happen, but we need to plan it in time, the reason because nobody was able to organize a proper party at 1k or 10k was the price going faster than anyone's planning ability, and this time will be no exception.

I think that a strict opsec would not be so necessary in any EU country (well maybe excluding east europe and UK, for different reasons). Also I was not imagining a bilderberg meeting but something more like a real party, with at least an hundred people (40 people means 20+ friend/gf) and a "normal" security service.

About the price even 0.01 btc/ticket (1k usd) would mean an hell of  a party,  maybe even 2/3k could be ok too, but 10k would be only a waste of coins. Not to mention I will not be retired even at 100k because reasons, and I think I'm not the only one.

Who is in party organizing? I could have some friends but they are nocoiners, and they would be very skeptical about organizing an epic event they think will never happen (even with coins in escrow ready to be sold).

My real concern is not that bitcoin will never reach 100k, but that nobody will be able to organize a proper party before that!

Good morning everyone.

I think there is a good chance we will see more retracement as traders consolidate their positions.  I had a little tingle before I went to sleep last night..the back of my mind said listen but I ignored it...sigh.

Good evening WO brother!

I know I am not giving much time online. After the champions league win I was in tears and shock. Took some time off from work and did a lot of shopping for wife and my one and only little baby girl (6 months and counting, my best wish that she will be living a full crypto life). It was a great shopping day and night out 🙂

By the way, Observing @ $8,480.

How long we are going to move sideways like this?
