Re: Flat Earth

lol, i know the world is enclosed but in a different way than your fantasy spinning globe. "no-one is more imprisend than the one thinking he is free." I didn't mean to offend you with my post, I'm genuinely just curious about the model. My "belief" is that the earth is round and I have knowledge i...

Re: How tight will moderation be?

Can self-moderation for threads be enabled? This seems like a very good question. What do people want regarding this? I'm guessing self-moderation means that a user moderates his/her own threads? I don't think that's a good idea. It could easily be abused to remove all posts arguing against the OP ...

Re: Coinkite Reports Malleability Attack & Urges Caution

Hasn't this kind of attack been known for ages? Why has it never been fixed? It's not particularly dangerous since no funds are stolen or burned, but still it's an attack that is annoying and causes confusion. I've read a few posts (on reddit) of people being confused because their wallet is shittin...

Re: Flat Earth

I jumped around a bit in one video and the guy says something along the lines of "isn't it strange that we can't feel the earth spinning". Seems like he needs to freshen up his knowledge in basic mechanics. With that logic you can come to the conclusion that airplanes are not actually flying, since ...

Re: Andreas Antonopoulos Argues in Favor of Larger Block Sizes

For these reasons I do not worry about the blocksize debate. It will work itself out, once it becomes a problem there will be consensus. Why should we wait until it becomes a problem? It's not going to work if every single thing has to become a problem before a solution is implemented. The regular ...

Cheapest way to run a full node?

Does anyone have any tips for some cheap hardware that can be used to run a full node? Preferably something small and quiet that most people can run 24/7. Obviously Raspberry Pi 2 Model B comes to mind. It has 1 GB RAM and 900 MHz quad-core processor. I have read of some people running it as a full ...

Re: More proof of censorship from /r/Bitcoin

No, that is not what consensus means (...) Fair enough, seems like I had the wrong definition of consensus in this context. I see now how XT can be seen as threat to the "consensus spirit". However, due to Bitcoin being completely open source I think we will see more and more alternative "implement...

Re: More proof of censorship from /r/Bitcoin

That made a lot of people exhausted and uncomfortable. Forums are supposed to be a...

Re: Protecting your seed! Brainstorming thread

I wrote my seed down on a piece of paper and then I took the 12 words and clumped them into blocks of 3 words. I then thought of an image which these three words described, so in total I had 4 images to remember. It lead to some weird images but it was actually not that hard to remember. After I was...

Re: My opinion regarding the block-size increase

You make literally no sense. There is no such thing as "free electricity", someone is going to pay for it. Slave labor doesn't help when mining bitcoin since you can't do it by hand. Neither does it help when designing ASICs since that requires engineering knowledge and not brute force. And I can't...

Re: How Bitcoin can stop war

The country where only fiat is used (country A) would certainly have a medium-term advantage over the country with an intrinsically limited currency (country B) in paying for military costs. If country A can decisively win in that time, then yes, they would win in the long run. There's a couple of ...

I think a more mobile-friendly layout would be great. Right now it works okay, but it's easy to miss-click on the authors name or the time the thread was posted instead of the actual link to the thread. Even better (in my opinion) would be to use an app like Tapatalk or something similar to get an e...

Re: Leaving block size unchanged will have Bitcoin lose its first mover advantage

I completely agree. The current block size stops bitcoin from growing and stops companies from considering bitcoin as a payment method. A maximum of 576000 transactions per day is laughable compared to Visa or even Paypal. And what happens when someone wants to send more legitimate transactions than...
