Thought this was an announcement thread. Very misleading!

I was somehow shocked to see the title but upon checking, we are far from getting SegWit activated. There would be some issues that would be addressed if we got SegWit through that cannot be addresed by the proposal of BU.

Checking the tweets of some devs that I follow, it seems that something is happening in the background. Negotiation towards consensus or nah? Sometimes I'm inclined to think that another alternative could be plausible and could be a mixed of BU and SegWit, but what do I know?

Has SegWit finally been signaled?

 If you don't know, then why entitle your topic with a statement?  At least qualify it with a question mark.


Usual this kind of clickbait thread should just vanish in the trashcan.

Thought this was an announcement thread. Very misleading!

Misleading is a nice word for this bs.
Trolling like this about a subject people are so eager to see the end of it it's like asking to be cursed by a billion pink rapist bunnies.

I cannot see SegWit ever being signalled, because these groups are way to far apart. I also cannot see Bitcoin Unlimited being implemented for
the same reason . . .  Angry

Kind of like Congress, isn't it? Meanwhile the miners and legislators are doing fine.

No, it hasn't and it is fairly easy to figure out whether or not it has based on a simple google search, you probably don't have to make topics like this to find out something like that in the future.
If it had been activated, then chances are there would be a lot more topics that would either be complaining on this forum or just discussing it in general, and some would continue to speculate about what it means. There are a lot of things you'd see if it was close to being applied in a real capacity.

I don't think so. If the agreement goes forth and a majority start signalling segwit, even if it's far from a supermajority (say 80% instead of the 95% required for activation) then the remaining pools will likely change their stance because it will become obvious they're only being obstructive as opposed to offering an alternative. This happened on the last big soft fork I can remember when it was less controversial and the deepbit pool held out till last.

Perhaps they should put a deadline on "voting" and just get on with it. They are cutting their own trhoats.

Following my previous reply, I think it's important to detail that this isn't exclusively about SegWit and since most opinions seem to be like what I described above, this actually doesn't really mean a lot.
Interesting way to downplay its relevance to segwit activation, but okay, you make of it what you will. Time will tell now.

The problem is, that tweet is as relevant for SegWit activation as it is for activation of any other proposal. It mentions "scaling compromise", which covers many things beyond SegWit.

It sure is, can you imagine a Bitcoin community post segwit? No constant attack from BU shills, no yearly scaling debate with spam attacks. Imagine how much the coin could actually grow.

Can you imagine a Bitcoin post Bitcoin Unlimited, for example? Using your point of view, it would be no more constant attacks from SegWit shills... Same thing goes for both ways regardless of which proposal is best.

In my point of view, if/when SegWit activates, Bitcoin Unlimited shills will only scream louder Roll Eyes But we'll see.

then the remaining pools will likely change their stance because it will become obvious they're only being obstructive as opposed to offering an alternative.

Let's seriously hope this happens. I too think it will, pools will only have things to lose if they become obstructive.

I cannot see SegWit ever being signalled, because these groups are way to far apart. I also cannot see Bitcoin Unlimited being implemented for

the same reason. They will have to come up with something new, and just use SegWit on other Alt coins, like LiteCoin. It is a pity, because it

solves other problems with Bitcoin too... and not just a slight Block size upgrade.  Angry
It's about the money. LTC activated Segwit, because it was easier, did not require almost everyone to signal, like it is with Bitcoin.
Also activating it affected the price and everyone knew it would, so it was a good decision that brought people a lot of money.
