Complacency! This is the early day of bitcoin, and we should not get stuck - developmentally or psychologically - where we are today. We have so much farther to go.What do you see as the biggest threat(s) to Bitcoin?
There are so many things, it's tough to list them all. Bitcoin and blockchain have finally caught on. To me, that means we can start working on What Comes Next, because What Comes Next requires a working, secure bitcoin.Hi Jeff,
Thank you so much for your involvement with Bitcoin.
You were one of the first people I ever recall ever seeing in the media talking about Bitcoin.
1. What has you the most excited about Bitcoin today, and is that different than when you first discovered bitcoin?
Definitely staying with bitcoin!2. Can you imagine working on something other than Bitcoin in the future, and if so, what?
3. What should we know about Bloq?
Alas, that startup never really made it to launch (har har). There's still hope for placing the bitcoin blockchain with some other space-bound projects.4. What's the latest news on the Bitcoin nodes being sent into space?
That's pretty much the US Dollar or another fiat currency, right?Hi Jeff,
I'm a relative newbie to Bitcoin and was wondering if (and when/how) any government could create their own coin (e.g. Fed +IBM) and then, perhaps, MAKE everyone in their territory use it.
It's tough! The PR pivot due to hype and misunderstandings from "bitcoin" to "blockchain" does help sometimes.Jeff -
Q1. With all the hype, ups and down, weirdness and passion, debates and misunderstanding around B(b)itcoin - what do you believe is the best way to get folks to truly understand what it is and how much of an impact it will be in the future?
I would love to own a Tesla - PS I accept Teslas as gifts!Q3. Do you or would you own an Tesla? I am 99% sure I will own a Model 3 when it is released
The idea has been around for a while - I grabbed the torch in September and started running with it1. How long has bloq been in the making?
All of the above. They will look at their own privacy and institutional needs.2. Will institutions use sidechains for permissioned ledgers, or make their own?
Bitcoin-the-token will be the gas that powers a decentralized universe of chains.3. Do you think bitcoin (lower b) has a bright future?
That is correct - miners can vote the block size lower - however NOTE - miners can do this today simply by colluding to reduce the block size.Hi Jeff
Is it correct that under BIP 100 it becomes possible to reduce blocksize by vote even if the network was running at capacity and the situation required larger blocks? And if so what effect would this have if smaller blocksize's were consecutively voted in when larger ones were required for the increased demand?
BIP 100 will be presented at Scaling Bitcoin in Hong Kong on December 6/7...Is BIP100 still under consideration?
It is important for businesses to perform forward planning and publicly voice their desires.Hi Jeff,
What do you think of the recent statement by Coinbase that they are willing to switch to XT?
Does that surprise you?
Do you support such a move?
Yes, definitely. The pgdb2 work on my github is a pre-requisite for C++ "hashserv" server. As soon as pgdb2 is working, hashserv can be put in place within 1-2 days.
I think I will never live that downHow did it feel perpetrating the most glorious Freudian slip in the history of Bitcoin at the end of the talk in Montreal?
