Splitting the currency unit from the blockchain? Who's lame brain idea is that anyways?

1. It is crystal clear that you will not stop Blockstream devs from implementing SPV proof.
2. I'm quite sure that OP_SIDECHAINVERIFY will be accepted by majority of miners very very fast. -> they have no problem to take fees in BTC verifying side chain data.
3. I want to ask you -> what will you do then ?

btw, how do you "know" these things?

1. it is obvious
2. it is my expectation
3. it is my question :-)

does it matter?

I am curious. Maybe you are just paid by Blockstream to use inverted psychology and you are only advertising SC.

Is this your real intentions ? (advertise and adopt SC ?)

there would have to be a much easier to do that if true.

given all my arguments, it is quite clear what my concerns are and that i think SC's are a bad idea.

so what will you do in this case Huh (it is 1 of N possible cases)
1. Blockstream devs will implement SPV proof.
2. OP_SIDECHAINPROOFVERIFY will be accepted by majority of miners very fast. (let's say it will take 1 month)

the spvp is no where near being implemented.  much work needs to be done, afaik.

btw, i asked you before but never got an answer.  what mathematical proof is being used for the 2wp with all these federated servers you're claiming are in use?

Federated servers use multisig (bitcoin already support multisig). One server(one owner) has one signature. You choose how much server do you trust N and how many of them have to sign M.  => M of N  ( eq. 3 of 5 )

can you answer now ? "what will you do then ? "

Following on from yesterday re: CB's, currency, govt etc. Here is head of Russia's CB (and Putins former economics advisor) announcing to Russian parliament that they have purchased 150 tons of gold.

Quote form article:

This announcement is unusual and to our knowledge has not happened before. The announcement by the Russian central bank governor was likely coordinated with Putin and the Kremlin and designed to signal how Russia views their gold reserves as a potential geopolitical and indeed financial and currency war weapon.

Yeah, that can probably go on for a few more decades. The youngest people who remember dollars as being tied to gold in their everyday life are probably in their 50-60s now. So another 20-30 years before those who viscerally internalize gold as money no longer run humanity to any meaningful degree. So the question for the next 20-30 years is: will economic rationality win out, or will those visceral childhood associations, and the power wielded by those who have them, be enough for a monetary resurgence of gold? I think it's a coin toss (and not a gold coin; too heavy).

Kinda doesn't matter, though, in the bitcoin vs gold discussion. Upside potential for bitcoin is considerably larger, with, in my opinion, greater probability of hitting the success case. The only spot where gold shines is if you want to be certain that your holding won't go to zero in the next 20-30 years (could still go -80%, though).

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.
But Bitcointalk & /r/bitcoin are heavily censored. bitco.in/forum, forum.bitcoin.com, and /r/btc are open.

I think we can do it within a decade.

We'd need Bitcoin to shoot past gold's market cap.

It won't be so much economic rationality that awakens them from their slumber but economic reality. It's a long way down for gold IMO

It's not a sentimental thing, Gold's a little deeper than that, it does have POW behind it and a very long history of working just fine because of it.

I would argue that "youngsters" stupidly tolerate fiat, over 99% of people haven't a clue what money is. I'd take a 10 year position in gold over toilet paper any day.

Gold and Bitcoin are pretty similar economically. Fiat is our common enemy, but nobody seems to mind it too much, someone was lauding the emergence of "cryptofiat" recently, I told him it was an oxymoron.

Reggie Middleton gets it.  even tho i disapprove of Ultracoin, at least his headline about Bitcoin is correct.  Bitcoin is set to consume fiat currency ala the Forex and gold markets.  why screw it all up by letting a conflicted financially motivated company called Blockstream insert a source code change that will change the mining equilibrium for sure and, as i submit, Bitcoins Sound Money principles based on the inextricable link btwn the currency unit and the blockchain?:
