As I said, I don't even know why you would bother to report about the BTC signaling nonsense.
...Because that's what this thread was about  Huh

Was it.

Who ever mines BU will lose all the money they spent on mining it. So that 50% threshold means nothing. Any fork of Bitcoin will be attacked ruthlessly by those who have enough resources to destroy any miners foolish enough to try.

The large miners/pools know this. The April's fool joke is on anyone who believes that signaling means anything on Bitcoin. It doesn't.

The Litecoin signaling was the information today. The other stuff was noise.

...Sheesh.


It's signalling version 0x20000004 and saying /EXTBLK/... anyone know what that is?

So yes there is something else going on which I'm trying to get an answer to but you keep talking about litecoin. And no, not everyone wants every bitcoin thread derailed by a discussion regarding litecoin news.

Not quite, they're signalling something but I can't make out what it means.

It's signalling version 0x20000004 and saying /EXTBLK/... anyone know what that is?

I don't see any reference to bit 3 for BIP009 nor EXTBLK's meaning.

Do you think he signaled Litecoin as an April fool's joke also?

No. Why are you assuming what level of importance I'm placing on the litecoin behaviour? My issue is you keep derailing this thread away from the bitcoin signalling discussion.

My issue is you are derailing the thread from relevant discussion of today's event to nonsense discussion. But Mr. Wong intended for the fools to waste their time on the noise. And for the smart to focus on the information. It was a test, and you are failing the test.

Note the OP mentions the Litecoin signaling. So please stop play uppity politics Mr. Staff. Sorry if your control-freak ego is hurt. So do you want to do censorship now.

Now you are really taking the thread far off course in more needless squabbling.

I basically disconnect from internet on 1st April to ignore all the stupid jokes. Let wait another 24 hours to see if F2Pool still signal Segwit or switch to BU. I guess Chun is also bored by the debate  Huh

I thought people had stopped appreciating April fools day and so we were free of these internet nonsense and gimmicks but as it turns out they played us with something even more serious so I agree let's wait for the 24 hours to find out about the authenticity of the signaling.

You win, I'll put you on ignore and go looking elsewhere for what their bitcoin signalling change means... or just continue the discussion here since I won't have to see you humping my leg like an excited dog in heat about your litecoin signalling discussion; I get it - you're excited because litecoin will be stronger than the foundations of the earth and worth quadrillions of dollars and make you richer than your wildest dreams as a result.

Now for those interested, clearly f2pool used the trolling opportunity from April 1st as a way to lead into some other kind of protest or flag that remains cryptic until they post something else on their twitter. Unless someone already knows what they mean?

I already told you it means anyone who cares about it is a Bitard maximalist idiot who doesn't understand:

F2pool is signalling many things including segwit and BU

Not on Litecoin. F2Pool is only signaling SegWit on Litecoin.

They seem to be testing which code is best for their system. I personally think that there is no need for a fork what we need is to upgrade and secure the bitcoin protocol then how the blocks delay should be fix.

That is what ignorant fools believe.

The signaling on Bitcoin is a diversion designed to fool you (so they can laugh at Bitard maximalists who don't comprehend that Bitcoin will prosper only if Litecoin gets SegWit). The smart people are looking at Litecoin. Nothing will happen on Bitcoin. Nothing.

Now they've dropped the EXTBLK in their signature but still maintain bit 3 enabled with version 0x20000004. Interestingly they still have the OP_RETURN in their coinbase consistent with segwit.

Thanks for that. I wasn't aware of that proposal and it looks consistent with the name in their coinbase. There has only been some discussion surrounding it as far as I can see as a counterargument to main block extension in BU here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/61eaag/proposal_extension_blocks_as_sf/

I don't see any significant momentum for such a feature nor any code to support it at the moment, and f2pool have dropped that from their signature. Perhaps that was the one remaining proposal they hadn't gotten around to including in their april fool's joke Tongue Anyway they still have the bit 3 set and the OP_RETURN from segwit in their coinbase. Perhaps they just want to keep us guessing...

I would like to believe that they are simply pragmatic Wink Is the world really turning into a good one?
Here's another block (although it doesn't answer the question as to why they are signalling so many things; maybe they just support all of those):



Anyway, good news, I think. As F2Pool is a very strong pool, they alone can bring Segwit signalling near 50% - and even some Unlimited supporters (Roger Ver) have stated that they would support it once it achieved support by the majority.
We shall see whether Ver is a man of his word or not. It is clear that the supermajority of users, experts, and companies (economy) are in favor of Segwit and/or against BU.
As F2Pool has signaling for many things maybe to please everyone, just check and BU reach 40,1% but SegWit 30.5% on https://coin.dance/blocks. Wondering how long it take for one of those will be the chosen one? Could it be this year? Still waiting wherever it will lead to, but I'm still thinking they (miners, who signaling for BU) just spin out time to get more higher fees from plenteous unconfirmed transaction.

In other words, it is no longer counting towards Segwit activation?

Don't use that biased website.

There's nothing to choose from. The users and economic majority do not want the altcoin BTU.
