Time to put a fork in this thread, it's done.

I agree. Let's squelch detailed discussion on how changes to mining affect centralization and blockchain scaling. That wasn't the point of this thread any way right.

Your incessant concern trolling since joining the forum just over a month ago has reduced this once semi intellectual discussion thread to a hollow echo chamber.
Nice work if you can get it.

this is actually inspiring that all these divergent opinions still have the maturity and willingness to break bread together in the same room. i'm sure all their differing views were aired and hopefully some positive consensus will arise:



Nick Szabo does actually exist, he's not a virtual entity as I used to believe Tongue

If I may, in which occasion those ladies and gentlemen gathered together ?

I may have just one last thing under this username to say to those who are fighting for Bitcoin.

You have blood on your hands; justified by your foolish greed wherein you tell yourselves lies to wish away the clear writing on the wall.

Bitcoin and any PoW coin is doomed to mining take over by NWO coincident with the means to sell fully opaque heat appliances to the masses who do not give a fuck about their enslavement with a NWO coin. If you can't reason it out, show no gratitude to someone who could elucidate it to you, then you deserve your ignorant fate.

I am not concerned. I am hyper pissed off at you guys that you do not care that the world will be turned into a 1984 in your lifetime.

I am so pissed off at you, I will not rest until I pummel you and your NWO coin. In what way? Because your NWO coin is a wealth expropriation plan. It is a monopoly plan on mining to cartels and oligarchs. Top-down control malfunctions, restricts opportunities, kills network efforts, under performs, overcharges, and in general is a bankruptcy directed paradigm.

How dare you characterize my discussion in this thread as an echo chamber. You should be ashamed of yourselves, but guys like you only learn the hard way of being separated from your capital so that you can't repeat your juvenile destructive shit again.

I will get the last and very rich laugh.

Hi everybody,
has any of you watched the following documentary (Money vs Currency - Hidden Secrets Of Money by Mike Maloney)?
This guy does not mention Bitcoin throughout the documentary but knowing something about it this made me more and more conscious that BTC is a real opportunity in a time of crisis like the one we're facing now.

From my point of view, BTC is like gold and better than gold in some aspects.

I hope some of you will find this interesting.

Whilst long term I think you'll be right,  for the next few years or so I'd think it more likely that both will go up with a market crash as they are safe stores of value. Presently more so gold rather than bitcoin.

Care to remind everyone why you believe this to be the case?

Miners will be marginalized to a marginal cost of securing the network provided the current incentive structure is not changed, ideas like SideChains put the balance of power in the hands of those who can control mining power. The NWO will do everything they can to control mining. Miners who provided more efficient services will prevail.

Many of your concerns assume you would be a benevolent dictator. However you think most of the world is content heating hot water in a bucket, I believe a decentralized free market knows that is a temporary state and will work to improve it.

Bitcoin mining is one way to do it with a good ROI.

Not Adrian-x,

Blah, blah, blah.

You will left holding NWO coin when the musical chairs stop playing.

Talk is cheap.


Miners will be marginalized to a marginal cost of securing the network provided the current incentive structure is not changed,

All (or surely > 50% of the hashrate of) the mining is going to be controlled by cartel and oligarchs. How many times do I have to repeat that they are not interested in double-spending. They are interested in enforcing KYC on all txns, in a monopoly on txns fees so they can raise them as high as the market will bear, in a Digital Kill Switch on txns from dissidants or competitors, and other anti-competitive behavior of fascist monopolies.

ideas like SideChains put the balance of power in the hands of those who can control mining power.

The cartels and oligarchs will control all the mining power due to the 100% efficiency of opaque heating appliances which will pay all the PoW coins to them. This is an undeniable economic outcome of the fact that other forms of mining can't compete.

The NWO will do everything they can to control mining. Miners who provided more efficient services will prevail.


Opaque heating appliances are maximally efficient. Nothing can do better.

Many of your concerns assume you would be a benevolent dictator.

Nope.

However you think most of the world is content heating hot water in a bucket

I never wrote that. This is low IQ reading comprehension.

I wrote that as they make the transition to middle class, their opportunity cost of managing mining on their water heater rules out significant adoption of water heaters that require mining. But smooth offered the idea that 21 Inc's plan is to control all of the variables with such top-down perfection that they can provide heating devices which the user doesn't even need to know it is a miner (mines on autopilot).

After contemplating that for a moment, I realized he is probably correct. The elite have every incentive to use any amount of resources necessary to bring that to fruition.

, I believe a decentralized free market knows that is a temporary state and will work to improve it.

Bitcoin mining is one way to do it with a good ROI.

Irrational. Review the facts written above.

He does talk about Bitcoin in video 5, he was a Bitcoin skeptic for a while and I believe he was buying in in the $400 range as a proponent.

Your comments about solar water heaters are irrelevant, because people aren't buying them (in the dominant markets). They are therefore inferior in some way (don't work particularly well in built-up cities for example, which is where populations are moving), in the opinion of the people making the purchases. That's the only opinion that matters, not yours.

Solar water heaters have issues. And mining doesn't  Huh

You're not getting that nobody is proposing "mining" in anything like the form it is done today, with all of its issues. Embedded deeply into a product (or indeed embedded deeply into a chip which is embedded deeply into a product) it won't be recognizable.


for the first time ever in Bitcoin's history, we'll have a scalable mining ASIC embedded in the most popular portable computing device on the planet (smartphones) whose growth is set to skyrocket and turn billions of unbanked into banked clients not only for micropayments but for standard commerce via a hardware wallet.  the portability aspect of this device potentially will allow it to mine for free.  right now i can envision unemployed African kids camped out at Starbucks or public libraries with not one but 7 Android phones (2 in their front pockets, 2 in their back pockets, 2 in their shirt pockets, and 1 in their hands for surfing) plugged into public outlets generating BTC while they're sipping their lattes.  wait, nevermind Starbucks.  why not go to the airports where it's plain to see the proliferation of phone charging kiosks in preparation for the smartphone age?  

free electricity for all!
