MillionBitcoinCash.com/.org and related sites

There seems to be a larger scam effort, which I will refer to as "MBCH" , brewing around the abovementioned domains and including some more domains listed in the announcement at this URL: https://bitco.in/forum/threads/million-bitcoin-cash-fork-1-1-of-bitcoin-pro-on-chain-scaling-cheaper-fees.2670/ ...

Re: Roger Ver & Co. to Hold ‘Free Speech Party’ at Scaling Bitcoin Milan

This is awesome.

I wish it would have been announced a little earlier though, so that more presenters from unapproved/unwelcome talks could have prepared to present at this 'Free Speech conference'.

Looking forward to hearing more about the true scaling conf! :-)

我们要对比特币进行分叉

http://i.imgur.com/CB2nrW5.png 我们作为一群比特币使用者,决定对比特币进行分叉以恢复到其原来的理念,即通过在链扩容提高区块容量至全球支付平台的水平,无论有没有大多数矿工的支持。 我们认为比特币能够在链扩容,并应该通过一系列硬分叉来治理。 我们认为这就是比特币原来的理念:即让任何有兴趣的使用者轻松接入一个点对点的现金网络。我们的目标很简单:倡导比特币扩容并通过对比特币网络进行成功的硬分叉来做出关于比特币治理问题的强有力声明。 --- https://proxy1.zn.kindlyfire.me/bitcoinforks.bit/zh/ https://proxy...

Re: We're forking Bitcoin!

hi rizlarolla, we acknowledge that a fork that wishes to compete with the main chain needs to reset difficulty to low, at least in the initial phase. There is ongoing discussion about how the difficulty should be adjusted after that, but currently I see some broad consensus within the community of f...

Re: We're forking Bitcoin!

We are a group of Bitcoin users forking Bitcoin back to its original vision of scaling on-chain to the world; with or without miner majority. That means there will be one or more hard fork clients which will spin-off the existing Bitcoin chain to present on-chain scaling solutions (bigger blocks an...

Re: What is your ideal level of decentralization for Bitcoin?

In an ideal world I wouldn't have to worry about running a node and the expenses that come with it. So I'm in the 'go big or go home' camp. But Bitcoin has a journey to get there - it must walk before it can run. So we had better all run nodes and not just think the other guy is going to do it so we...

Re: A Bitcoin.com mining pool?

It's a great idea.

We need a pool to support upcoming hardforks.

What about P2Pool as a basis?
I'm not *entirely* sure, but I think it's all open source too:

Re: Media Speculation Grows that Satoshi will Reveal Himself as Early as The Weekend

We can only hope that he still has commit access and reveals himself by increasing the blocksize. All Satoshi could do is offer advice one way or the other. Sure, it could affect things, but I don't think it would matter all that much. People are realizing that Bitcoin is open source for a reason -...

At this stage, equally upset by both. In the beginning, I was only upset by censorship (starting from /r/Bitcoin). Honestly, a scaling debate always takes time, so that's expected. But when censorship is used to push one side of that debate, it's when I get upset equally at the slow pace of scaling....
