Re: Bitcoin Cash Mega Thread

Roger, congratulations on this milestone. It's exciting to see real growth in bitcoin. Without growth we have nothing. Without growth we'd still be riding horses and writing letters to each other. Don't take this the wrong way, but I don't want to be anyone's pen pal! I look forward to seeing where ...

Re: Congratulations Bitcoin community. There will be no chain split. Bitcoin is stronger than ever.

I'm against the attack - segwit. More tx throughput is needed - bigger blocks. I agree with Craig Wright's speech posted elsewhere on "the forum" by Ver. Craig Wright's speech was awful. Any sophisticated point he was trying to make was muttled by his horrible, seemingly unprepared rhetoric. He sou...

Re: Congratulations Bitcoin community. There will be no chain split. Bitcoin is stronger than ever.

imo Bitcoin was designed by satoshi to give this sort of attack massive chance of failure.
I'm counting on him. I'm counting on hash majority never activating segwit.
Is it the perceived attack that you're against or is the proposal to expand the transaction throughput size?

Re: Bitcoin can be divided into two parts

It looks like SegWit will activate via BIP91 before BIP148 would go into effect, and thus avoid a chain split. That's the plan. How can you say that? It's my understanding that a proposal for changes to the blockchain can be made but the nodes need to agree to adopt the changes. If 100% don't adopt...
