And I think that BTX is just too similar to all other coins which are faster than BTC.

BTX is:

1. fast - a lot of other coins are fast
2. cheap transactions - a lot of coins are even with free transfers
3. secure - almost all offer this as a feature
4. decentralized
5. anonymous to some extent

So BTX now is without the claimed fork coins (already claimed) and the airdrop coins (already ended).
My question is - what is the unique trait of BTX which is good enough to
make BTX a payment leader?

If it works for you, you can compare it with LTC for example.

No, coins can be still claimed at a 0.5 to 1 ratio if I know right.
"what is the unique trait of BTX"?
Well when I invested into this coin I asked what are the unique traits of BCH, BCG and the others so why do they worth a lot lot more? nothing really, just hype...
A lot of people do not even know about this coin that preceded the other forks... so time works for this coin versus the big guys.

Not to mention, the devs are talented. If they wanted to they could have implemented other stuff such as private transactions that is BS, Bitcoin was used with its transparent ledger for writing ransomwares and who was caught for it? Nobody.
Ethereum interpreters to interpret smart contracts? Big lol for it, and also a huge attack surface. But that is only my oppinion, really.

Can you confirm that control of hashrate is decentralized?


The economic parameters of Bitcoin are well known and unlikely to ever change, there is no leader to authorise any changes, so the interplay between bitcoin price, and hash rate, and PoW difficulty is allowed to work itself out without any interference from any outside forces.

Bitcoin could be banned in every country on the planet, and the price would adjust as many stopped using it, and then so to would the total hashing power on the network adjust, and then the difficulty adjusts etc. This mechanism is known to everyone, and set in stone for Bitcoin, so all actors know the 'game', and as long as you accept that a total ban would be as effective as the war on drugs, people will always use bitcoin, and people will always mine bitcoin. This is the magic that satoshi created by disappearing.

So, to answer your question, Bitcoin hashrate is decentralized because miners are always free to enter and exit based on their personal profit/loss calculation, today it can be concentrated due to economies of scale, but those miners have zero incentive to break the system that makes them money, and even if they did try, and Bitcoin price dropped to $10 after a crisis of confidence, all that would happen would be new miners with cheaper costs enter the market, and the parameters adjust. At some price people would end up mining on cpu's again, the Bitcoin network doesn't need a particular price to keep it going  , it will go on forever, even if it's illegal, because it is useful and nobody can control it.

The key is there is no Bitcoin HQ, or leader, or even dev team, we all own and control the Bitcoin network. This is not the same as any other crypto, most have dev teams and leaders who make decisions everyone else has to accept whether they like it or not, and those leaders can be harrassed by nefarious forces at any time. The Bitcoin governance system is perfect, because it doesn't exist, this is the paradox.

For as much as I Love BTX, I have to agree to this, sighing.......... But we are 100% right that our investment to BTX was a right decision and we will get our result soon. I was hoping for some good news like release of White paper or something sensational after the last air drop... I think price will grow up when btx listed on some big volume exchanges..... I must say that I am disappointed but still hopefully waiting for
 its betterment and price pumping......!!!!! Because I know that the Devs are smart people who care about this coin....!!! But credibility is very much crucial when investors will be attracted to this coin.... Huge marketing and publicity for the betterment of this coin should be taken.... All of us know the a Ford needs a strong team who can develop new and usefull technologies of this and we have this strong team......!!!!! So what next?HuhHuh?? My recommendation is that be patience, hold our coin, gain huge profit at the end of year.....
I think that White Paper will not affect the price at any moment. Maybe it will affect very little. But this is one more step in the development of the Bitcore project. The project is slowly but surely moving forward.

i totally agree.

I mean a whitepaper is mostly useless but for some reason the masses clamor for it. White papers are really more important in my eyes for tokens and the platforms that support them. The attempt to find a currency is really mostly about specs. So just a short whitepaper describing the few changes and innovations would be more than enough. As far as a roadmap goes I think transparency is more important than a formal roadmap. Nobody can plan that far out in this game so really just keeping the community privy to development is key to managing expectations. Just my two satoshi.  

The paradox of Bitcoin value is everyone accepts there is no one in charge of Bitcoin, so it's impossible for any government or banks to shut it down or control it. The best thing the BTX devs could do for the coins value would be to disappear and make it crystal clear that this coin is fully decentralised and the economic parameters are set in stone, thus making it impossible to compromise.

All cryptos with leadership groups can be compromised, Bitcoin is a black swan because Satoshi set it free.

A happy middle ground is needed. Full decentralization of development, as seen with Bitcoin, means a lack of funding and a lack of direction. They have been unable to adapt to the changing environment. If anything, I believe that is the greater risk in the two choices. Really a good set of governance would solve the majority of this problem. It would allow the users to impact the development of the coin and really have a say but it would also allow the developers to guide the coin in a meaningful way. The balance between the two is absolutely key as far as I see it.

I think the best option for all crypto projects is a gradual move from total control by founders and dev teams to governance by the user community,  which is a very difficult thing to pull off,  but the ones that do will survive, and the ones with very obvious leadership groups will end up struggling to compete with corporate crypto projects. At some point the founders and core devs have to let their projects live on their own, like parents allowing their kids to grow up and move out, this is what Satoshi did, and it's why we're all here. If he had stayed he would have been compromised in an infinite number of ways.

I definitely don't think it was easy for him to let go, but it made Bitcoin impossible to control, and that is why it's a black swan, even though governance is very difficult now, and tech progress is almost impossible.

In General, I certainly understand that the distribution of coins affects the expansion of the community and attracts new users. But how does it affect the price?

I dont disagree with your premise entirely. However, Bitcoin is next to useless for anything and if you don't think it is being controlled then you are extremely naive. The terrible distribution alone makes it susceptible to all sorts of manipulation. The top 1% of addresses have 92% of the Bitcoin and that is a huge issue. Another thing is that Bitcoin itself and development may be decentralized but the platforms built on top of it are not and that is the point at which it could easily be controlled. It was a good try and it got the movement started but someday big daddy bitcoin is likely to die. There are many other ways to go about this and full decentralization in regards to development just isn't one of them.

I agree 100%, Bitcoin is very flawed in many ways, and a coin like BTX is far superior in nearly every way, but the lack of an unambiguous leadership team makes Bitcoin unstoppable, and that means people can trust that it will be around in some form or other forever, even if the price drops by 90%.

How many alt coins in the top 100 are leaderless, I can't think of any off hand, some have anonymous devs, but do any actually have no clear leadership running them? It would be a courageous decision for devs to just walk away and let the community take control, but it has happened before, the original Qora dev announced he was quitting for personal reasons and literally left the project and has never returned Qora definitely suffered as a result, BUT, amazingly it has survived with community members stepping up at different times to 'do things', so qora is unambiguously leaderless and thus fully decentralised and still survives, so it is possible.

I agree with you. The project has been quite successful with strong and prestigious partners. But I think the expansion with many partners beyond the scope of the country to protect well the goal of global development.

I am curious where these Bitcore stickers are available because I found one on a trash can in my city. Cheesy

What were you looking for there?

Real question is who would throw out BTX sticker Grin, maybe someone who dumped BTX recently Huh


Sounds like it was /on not /in the bin !


Indeed. Someone taped the sticker on a trash can.



I have never anticipated something like this here since bitcoin, in general, is in this city not common.
