Re: Why I support Bitcoin Unlimited and bigger blocks

1. I own a relatively large number of Bitcoin. 2. As such, I'm profoundly interested in seeing the value of that asset appreciating in value. 3. Many events over the past 18 months have proven to me, and most rational, objective/unbiased observers that a blocksize increase will lead to the followin...

Re: It is time for Jihan to stand up for Bitcoin

I'm saying I agree 1mb is not ideal and will need to be increased, Bitcoin also still has larger scaling issues overall like Roger examples of transactions with multiple inputs cost so much because of how they have to be constructed (and that wouldn't be solved unless blockspace was almost free whic...

You are cluttering the space with these huge quotes, and you can't articulate any sort of logical thinking. Can you go try to ruin a conversation elsewhere? :(

Re: F**k Satoshi!

Ok that's what I thought you would be talking about. Unfortunately these multiple input transaction it seems to me are a consequence of how Bitcoin is working and I don't see how the blocksize can solve this since you need to have fees because bandwith storage and processing is not unlimited and fre...

Re: It is time for Jihan to stand up for Bitcoin

I'm not obsessed with the block size. I'm obsessed with allowing Bitcoin to scale to be able to challenge the Euro, the Dollar, or the Yen. I don't care what the scaling method is, but it needs to be done soon, or Bitcoin will lose it's first mover advantage to something else. We are already starti...

Re: F**k Satoshi!

Tens of dollar for a transaction seems very unusual, I think we can both agree that this is not representative of the average price paid per transaction. But it's interesting nevertheless. Could you give more explanations about these transactions ? Some other issues you are mentionning are also rela...

Re: F**k Satoshi!

Well I have the same goals and concerns but 8mb or even 50mb doesn't bring us there either. Which is not a reason to stay stuck at 1mb if we can upgrade safely for sure! Can I ask you what makes you think that the blocksize is the reason for the slow bitcoin adoption? I can give you many reaons that...

Re: F**k Satoshi!

There's a high probability albeit not certainty that Satoshi is Nick Szabo. Analysis of his writing style, his historical place in the field, his work on bitgold and so on. He is certainly the most likely candidate BY FAR. So you can ask him directly what he thinks just don't mention Satoshi. From w...

Blocksize limit is a tree hiding the forest

First I want to say that I don't really care about 1MB or 8MB limit or whatever other limit. The crystallization on this issue I feel is overdone and people on both sides are way too extreme about their beliefs in my humble opinion. For example, reading r/btc, one might get the idea that all is need...

Re: It is time for Jihan to stand up for Bitcoin

The Volume dominance Index on coincap is meaningless when Bitcoin is the other pair of these trade. The altcoins market is completly dependant on Bitcoin except a few exceptions like ETHUSD and the volume are not significant compared to the bitcoin-altcoins pairs and Bitcoin-fiat.

Re: My Dinner with Adam Back

First let me congratulate you Roger. All this angel money invested came back in the form of the Bitcoin price increase even if I guess you didn't make a return on many of these investments. I think now you should be worry free. In fact at this moment you strangely sound like someone who would be ove...
