"I have always viewed the /r/btc message (about censorship) as a total joke, until I began fighting for my property which was stolen by Blockstream CEO & CTO along with Bitfinex.
I then realized that my “negative” or “impopular” message was not even allowed to stay on /r/Bitcoin, /r/Bitcoinmarkets, and some Telegram groups. /r/Bitcoin shadowbanned me, /r/Bitcoinmarkets downvoted me and the moderators put a negative message to my thread, some Telegram groups banned me.
I never realized how bad this was. I thought the /r/Bitcoin I have been reading since 2012 were at least a balanced view of Bitcoin news, I’m horrified to find out this is not true.
If you look at the newspapers in Bitcoin, the largest, CoinDesk is only about shilling DCGco investments (to avoid SEC regulations).
The newspaper companies are worth so little that they are easily bought, and by speaking with some journalists I am 100% sure every newspaper is bought and paid for, e.g zero credibility, and there is no way they will publish something negative about the industry, or one of the “industry leaders” for the sake of keeping things honest - they wouldn’t want to risk missing out on a client like that because they are so starved for money.
There is some positivity in all of this, however. When /r/Bitcoin censors all their content, they want users to think in a certain way and censor to discredit opposing views so their users won't read them. When opposing views grow they will run over that censorship and /r/Bitcoin users will not know what happened at first, because they’ve been made stupid by their mods, but when they find out they will be furious. They will never see this coming, it will be fun!
I would like to thank moderators of /r/btc for simply letting me post my content (however it may be received). It is actually very, very pathetic I feel grateful for this in a “censorship resistant currency” but the vultures have taken over and manipulated "public opinion” and will silence everyone who disturb their fantasy.
Very sad state of affairs, but the /r/btc movement will succeed. Blockstream will fail, and if people would accept SegWit, they would strip more of your liberties after SegWit until Bitcoin becomes a cult with only one opinion allowed (so Blockstream can scam the Bitcoin community instead of scamming their investors).

Bitcoin as digital gold, is based on the assumption that it will be exchanged for fiat to be useful, thus is more fragile. Bitcoin as cash is important, because it can be 100% Bitcoin ecosystem, so it can operate by itself without relying on fiat."paid." - Joloffe
note that what the OpenBazaar developers consider "clunky" is using the Lightning system to complete payments to OB vendors. Under the Lightning system, the vendor must be online to receive a payment,"people don't goto the grocery store or shop online with gold bars." - squarepush3r
Gold works as only a store of value because people can, could, and do accept it, could do so en masse if necessary, without any fees, if the shit hits the fan anywhere.

Look carefully at how the black line has been dipping below the red line since late 2014. The price would probably be $10,000 USD/BTC if Blockstream / Core hadn't started suppressing Bitcoin volume & transactions in late 2014, with their artificial, centrally controlled "blocksize limit" of 1 MB."to suppress the volume & price. https://i.imgur.com/sywn1fv.png" - ydtm
"More info (from the trader who created the graph):
https://np.reddit.com/r/BitcoinMarkets/ ... 7/dchmlm1/
Model price based on tx rate: 7-day average: $10874, 28-day average: $11038.
Model price = 10-0.638 * (tx per day)2.181 / # total coins.
Those with long memories will recall that this model has long indicated a price significantly over spot, fading the entire bear market; it was predicting significantly under spot when I started running it privately. It is revived to track against the current bull run.
Explanation is here with historical graphs of price vs. model and graphs of other correlations (last updated 2015-06-29). The code](https://np.reddit.com/r/BitcoinMarkets/ ... _tx_model/[) is here if you want to improve on it.
Historical information for people who are curious
Blockstream was founded in late 2014:
https://www.blockstream.com/2014/10/23/ ... ockstream/
https://blockstream.com/2014/11/17/bloc ... round.html
Who is AXA? What do they want from Bitcoin?
One of the main owners of Blockstream is AXA - a "too big to fail" insurance company, which would fail if Bitcoin became highly valuable.
How can we fight back to support Bitcoin?
The best way to make Bitcoin prosper is to reject the cripplecode and propaganda from AXA-funded Blockstream - and instead run code such as Bitcoin Unlimited or Bitcoin Classic.
Core / Blockstream's Bitcoin code has an artificially tiny, centrally planned 1 MB blocksize. The graph in the OP suggests that this may be the main factor which has been suppressing Bitcoin volume & transactions - and price - since Blockstream was founded in late 2014.
Core / Blockstream's SegWit-as-a-softfork is a messy hack and a poison pill which is designed to allow Blockstram to continue controlling Bitcoin and suppressing its price.
Previous posts discussing the above topics in more detail
(1) This graph shows Bitcoin price and volume (ie, blocksize of transactions on the blockchain) rising hand-in-hand in 2011-2014. In 2015, Core/Blockstream tried to artificially freeze the blocksize - and artificially froze the price. Bitcoin Classic will allow volume - and price - to freely rise again.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/44 ... volume_ie/
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/search?q=au ... rict_sr=on
(2) Why Bitcoin Unlimited's FlexTrans-as-a-hard-fork is better than Core/Blockstream's SegWit-as-a-soft-fork
For other people who might want to review some of these earlier discussions, a few links are provided below:
Reminder: Previous posts showing that Blockstream's opposition to hard-forks is dangerous, obstructionist, selfish FUD. As many of us already know, the reason that Blockstream is against hard forks is simple: Hard forks are good for Bitcoin, but bad for the private company Blockstream.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/4t ... ckstreams/
"They [Core/Blockstream] fear a hard fork will remove them from their dominant position." ... "Hard forks are 'dangerous' because they put the market in charge, and the market might vote against '[the] experts' [at Core/Blockstream]" - /u/ForkiusMaximus
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/43 ... ll_remove/
The real reason why Core / Blockstream always favors soft-forks over hard-forks (even though hard-forks are actually safer because hard-forks are explicit) is because soft-forks allow the "incumbent" code to quietly remain incumbent forever (and in this case, the "incumbent" code is Core)
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/40 ... am_always/
As Core / Blockstream collapses and Classic gains momentum, the CEO of Blockstream, Austin Hill, gets caught spreading FUD about the safety of "hard forks", falsely claiming that: "A hard-fork forced-upgrade flag day ... disenfranchises everyone who doesn't upgrade ... causes them to lose funds"
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/41 ... sic_gains/
SegWit-as-a-softfork is a hack. Flexible-Transactions-as-a-hard-fork is simpler, safer and more future-proof than SegWit-as-a-soft-fork - trivially solving malleability, while adding a "tag-based" binary data format (like JSON, XML or HTML) for easier, safer future upgrades with less technical debt
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5a ... is_a_hack/
The proper terminology for a "hard fork" should be a "FULL NODE REFERENDUM" - an open, transparent EXPLICIT process where everyone has the right to vote FOR or AGAINST an upgrade. The proper terminology for a "soft fork" should be a "SNEAKY TROJAN HORSE" - because IT TAKES AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5e ... should_be/
Core/Blockstream is living in a fantasy world. In the real world everyone knows (1) our hardware can support 4-8 MB (even with the Great Firewall), and (2) hard forks are cleaner than soft forks. Core/Blockstream refuses to offer either of these things. Other implementations (eg: BU) can offer both.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5e ... _world_in/
Normal users understand that SegWit-as-a-softfork is dangerous, because it deceives non-upgraded nodes into thinking transactions are valid when actually they're not - turning those nodes into "zombie nodes". Greg Maxwell and Blockstream are jeopardizing Bitcoin - in order to stay in power.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/4m ... ftfork_is/
"Negotiations have failed. BS/Core will never HF - except to fire the miners and create an altcoin. Malleability & quadratic verification time should be fixed - but not via SWSF political/economic trojan horse. CHANGES TO BITCOIN ECONOMICS MUST BE THRU FULL NODE REFERENDUM OF A HF." ~ u/TunaMelt
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5e ... _never_hf/
If Blockstream were truly "conservative" and wanted to "protect Bitcoin" then they would deploy SegWit AS A HARD FORK. Insisting on deploying SegWit as a soft fork (overly complicated so more dangerous for Bitcoin) exposes that they are LYING about being "conservative" and "protecting Bitcoin".
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/57 ... nd_wanted/
Wladimir van der Laan (Lead Maintainer, Bitcoin Core) says Bitcoin cannot hard-fork, because of the "2008 subprime bubble crisis" (??) He also says "changing the rules in a decentralized consensus system is a very difficult problem and I don’t think we’ll resolve it any time soon." But Eth just did!
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/4t ... r_bitcoin/
"Co-opting a dev team or a repo is far easier than trying to end-run a market. ... Hard forks are the only way for the market to express its will, which is the only way for Bitcoin to remain both decentralized and viable. ... Hard forks are exactly what is needed in a controversy" ~ u/ForkiusMaximus
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5f ... sier_than/
(3) How can we take back control of Bitcoin, so the price and volume can continue to rise like they did before late 2014 when Blockstream started spreading their crippleware and propaganda?
Uninstall the cripplecode from Core/Blockstream
Install the code from Unlimited or Classic, which:
supports decentralized blocksize scaling - decided by the market, not by central planners at Blockstream
supports clean, simple, safe upgrades (eg, FlexTrans, not SegWit)
Avoid the censored forum r\bitcoin, and instead use the lightly moderated forum r/btc
Some previous posts on this subject:
Bitcoin can go to 10,000 USD with 4 MB blocks, so it will go to 10,000 USD with 4 MB blocks. All the censorship & shilling on r\bitcoin & fantasy fiat from AXA can't stop that. BitcoinCORE might STALL at 1,000 USD and 1 MB blocks, but BITCOIN will SCALE to 10,000 USD and 4 MB blocks - and beyond
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5j ... blocks_so/
Bitcoin Unlimited + Classic hashrate goes over 15% for first time ever. Bigger block hashrate continues to climb.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5m ... s_over_15/
The Bitcoin Classic and Unlimited dev teams remind me a lot of Ethereum's dev team. Rational, good people. And Core reminds me more of the Federal Reserve.
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/4u ... dev_teams/
In the last 24 hours, Unlimited + Classic hashrate is 25% of the total Bitcoin network - just sayin'
