Greenspan Warns A Crisis Is Imminent, Urges A Return To The Gold Standard

ZeroHedge
by Tyler Durden
Jun 27, 2016 3:22 PM

On Friday afternoon, after the shocking Brexit referendum, while being interviewed by CNBC Alan Greenspan stunned his hosts when he said that things are about as bad as he has ever seen.

"This is the worst period, I recall since I've been in public service. There's nothing like it, including the crisis — remember October 19th, 1987, when the Dow went down by a record amount 23 percent? That I thought was the bottom of all potential problems. This has a corrosive effect that will not go away. I'd love to find something positive to say."

Strangely enough, he was not refering to the British exodus but to America's own economic troubles.

Just when I thought they might have found a way to avoid a massive war, this pops up.  This looks really bad to me.  The Chinese could fork Bitcoin on their own and create two forms of Bitcoin or force majority of miners to move to a competing alt. 

Only 12 days until the halvening - this shouldn't even be an issue yet it's actually escalating!

---

Reddit:  Luke-Jr

HaoBTC, in the future, if you have concerns or questions that need clarification and/or answering, please just ask, rather than posting on a blog that we probably don't read and might not even notice...
Things that we tried to make clear both at the meeting itself, as well as afterward on social media:
Core contributors present and party to the agreement were not acting as representatives of the Core dev team, (This was made VERY clear.)

There was no hardfork promised (not even all the Core dev team has authority to do that), only code that could be recommended for one. (This also was made VERY clear.)

The hardfork proposal promised was not a "2 MB hardfork", but a hardfork that would include as one minor change, the ability to include up to 2 MB of current witness-included-in-txid (anyone-can-malleate) transactions.

Miners have no leverage to make demands. If they attempt to hardfork without community consensus, they harm only themselves, while Bitcoin moves on without them. (At least for my part, my goal of the agreement was to end division and argumentation, which did not happen, admittedly not because of the fault of many of the agreement participants.)

The July 2016 estimate was not part of the agreement, and certainly not a deadline. It was (at the time) a reasonable expectation based on the agreement terms.

Speaking only for myself, I made the promise with sincerity, and intend to uphold it best I can (despite the almost immediate violation by one of the parties).

Admittedly, both at the meeting and now, I consider the "SegWit delayed until HF is released in Core" position some miners took to be unviable, and that miners will be pressured to deploy it much sooner by the community. After all, not deploying segwit literally means they are preventing the block size increase. However, I understand the agreement places no such obligation on them.

Since the agreement was made:

SegWit has still not yet been included in a release. Thus the three months deadline has not even begun "counting" yet. (I still aspire to have something by the end of July if possible, but I consider this to be above and beyond the agreed-on terms.)

Discussions have revealed that the goal of expanding space for anyone-can-malleate transactions loses the necessary performance improvements included with SegWit to make larger blocks safer, thus cannot safely be done without ugly hacks to introduce new limits similar to BIP 109 which might become a nuisance to Bitcoin both today and in the future. This isn't a show-stopper to writing code, but it may make it difficult to come up with something that unbiased parties can recommend.

Many third parties have expressed that they will under no conditions consent to a hardfork that comes out of this or any other political agreement. This won't block code nor recommentation, but it does guarantee such a proposal cannot be adopted.

Some developer(s) have expressed concerns that doing a hardfork safely ("soft hardfork") is somehow "unethical" to them, and doing it unsafely will require even greater efforts on ensuring consensus is reached not only from the community, but also that there are no nodes accidentally left behind. This isn't a blocker, but it probably makes deployment much harder.

---

Luke is basically saying they did their part but hard forking isn't up to core or even up to the miners - it's up to the entire community.  And the clock on Segwit hasn't even started ticking yet. 

This could get really ugly for Bitcoin in a matter of days.

Chinese miners revolt & announce "Terminator Plan".

---

According to the Chinese translation [summary]:

-  Core defaulted on HK consensus and doesn't honor 2MB increase.

-  Chinese miners to unite to implement Classic which supports 2MB increase and SegWit

-  Urge all miners to unite to support the Terminator Plan

Only one week left to the halvening!  This should get interesting!

That was an excellent call you made!

As for the symbols, IX is blatantly there.  They could mean something else but they're as clear as day.  

I'll be sure to pay attention the next time you make a price prediction.  Smiley  

Okay, here are some more that you missed then.

Chinese Terminator Programme in Full-effect!


Chinese miners announce support for Classic (if they merge Segwit).

Goldman like!

Goldman buy!

Bitcoin immediately up over 5% on the news!  If this goes smoothly then the price will skyrocket over $3,000 this summer.

SHOCKER:  All the experts, Andreas et al, were wrong [AGAIN!!!

---

[CoinDesk] - Citi: Bitcoin is an Opportunity for Banks [No SHIT!?!??], Not a Threat

Published on June 30, 2016
 
A new research report by banking giant Citi asserts that it does not view bitcoin and other digital currencies as a disruptive threat to banks, credit card networks or traditional remittance providers, but rather as a potential complement to existing services.

Published today, the 56-page report argues bitcoin and digital currencies are better equipped to open up new markets and reach new consumers, and that today’s centralized payment systems are already efficient enough for today's commerce.

---

Bahahaaaa.  I've been saying EXACTLY this from the beginning and I hardly knew what a Blockchain was.  All these experts like Andreas are being worshipped by asshats and muppets even though they failed to see even the most basic and obvious truth while calling me crazy and blocking me on social media. 

If Bitcoin makes it past this scaling issue and gets the ETF like I said from the beginning then expect an unworldly massive run given the banks no longer [pretend] they hate it.

I cannot seem to find where you have used the phrase "canary in the coal mine"(maybe you haven't). But the canary in the coal mine as it relates to IXcoin being the test subject to whether Bitcoin will survive, could only prove its survivability if it had not been merge-mined. Bitcoin doesn't have this luxury of being mined "for free" through merge mining it with a larger constant hash rate.
 
I believe that if IXcoin survived without merge mining then this would be a true test of bitcoin's survivability.

Is it possible to un-merge mine?

Canary in the coal mine is not a phrase I've used. 

I haven't discussed this in public but in private and especially with my guardian angel, Cinnamon, I did discuss it when trying to figure out Thomas' reason to launch a Bitcoin twin.  One possibility was to see what would happen when the reward ran out.  There are serious benefits which ixc possesses due to the fact it is a fully matured Bitcoin twin.

Yes, miners can choose to drop Ixcoin which would mean it would DIE.  Security is the biggest feature and unlike all other features which can be copy and pasted, security is incredibly expensive and difficult to obtain.

For those of you who can't read [good] here's part of the "Satoshi Affair" article, on MP3.

It's worth listening to at least for the cool Scottish/Irish accent.  Smiley

No shit!!!  By design!!! 

These guys are the planet's greatest economists yet they still don't see the play is Bitcoin and crypto.  I watch these guys and they honestly don't get it yet.  At least they now see that all fiat, all paper money, is DEAD.  We have already passed the point of no return.

Now it's time to drop a crypto nuke and accelerate it!!!

I saw that on reddit yesterday but I didn't post it cause it's really just redundant at this point.  Basically China went from "banning" Bitcoin to stating it's gonna pass citizens' rights to Bitcoin. 

The first time China banned Bitcoin, about 3 years ago, and people were freaking out I said it was a ruse to keep the price down so they could accumulate.  The "experts" were of course saying that governments hated Bitcoin.  Silly experts! 

So pretty much everyone is now out of the closet.  The banks, corporations and governments are all sooooo in love with Bitcoin and crypto.  Total shocker...  Grin

The Bitcoin ETF is an absolute guarantee.  Tens of trillions of dollars of wealth transfer are coming into the New World from the Muppet Matrix.  Goodie!!!
