The paper, entitled Bitcoin 2: Freedom of Transaction, points out several things that it says are problems for Bitcoin, and worries that the protocol could “develop into a system that is a complete perversion of the original vision – a completely transparent payment system with very few points of control which has been totally absorbed by the established financial and regulatory environment.”

Bitcoin is a "poison pill" to the regulatory and conventional banking system. What most miss, is that by 'complying', Bitcoin has gained an entry vector to its host so it may replicate and become even stronger. The end game is Bitcoin wins, and the host dwindles or vanishes completely.

The paper argues that the increasing block chain size makes full clients less feasible over time, increasing centralization.
Instead, this protocol would delete the oldest block from the chain when a new one was added, to keep the block chain at a set length. Any money still held from transactions in these blocks would be freed up, and released back to the network in the form of a lottery.

Yet another idiotic idea.

Yup.

When will people get it into their heads? Don't attempt to redistribute my coins. Period.

If this is what's in Bitcoin 2, count me out. In fact, count on me to actively discourage it's adoption by anyone else too (not that I'll care that much, as I'll never choose to use it.)

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.

They should be slammed about labelling it bitcoin 2 - it sounds like an attempt to hijack bitcoin, newcomers might buy in assuming it's the original.

I think the Bitcoin currency (or the concept of the Bitcoin currency) will most likely morph as more people become exposed to the idea  of using Bitcoins, and Bitcoins become more accepted in commerce. Because Bitcoins are not centralized, however, I wonder what kind of changes that Bitcoin will inevitably go through and how this change will affect current users of Bitcoin.
