Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

That was the last question in this AMA. Thank you for your attention and all your questions, they were really intersting! Incidentally I'm on Slush Pool hackathon right now; whole team is in Krkonose mountains in hut, sitting all days in front of monitor and coding new features for the Pool. Pool te...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

Hello Marek I was re-reading Antifragile by iconoclast thinker Nassim Taleb recently. He writes "Never ask anyone for their opinion [...] Just ask them what they have -or don't have- in their portfolio" I have come to think it's a very relevant question and you can better weight people's opinions h...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

Marek, 2 q's: 1. What are your thoughts on proof of work vs. proof of stake? Do you think Ethereum could develop a viable alternative to proof of work? 2. As someone in the industry, what are your primary news sources for Bitcoin/crypto, and why? Appreciate your thoughts. ad 1) Firstly, I don't con...

Hi Marek, welcome to bitcoin.com! :) My question: Are you planing to sell a cheaper Hardware Wallet in the future? Hi LiteCoinGuy, thanks for hosting AMA here! :-) Hardware wallet in hands of every bitcoiner is definitely our vision, so yes, low price and wide availability are our primary goals. Ho...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

If you had full control of Bitcoin core what changes would you implement first? I would kick of everything unnecessary to relay node and validation of blockchain and add reasonable API for external applications. Current monolithic architecture is hell and we fight with Core integration in Pool and ...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

Hi Marek, Thank you for coming here! Around when do you think the next version of the Trezor will come out or is it still a while before there will be any hardware updates? We're generally satisfied with TREZOR design approach. Comparing to our competitors, we don't plan to add GSM, Bluetooths, Wif...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

slush, I love the two Trezors I own, and really like that i can set them up to be identical, and use them interchangeably. My question is when will you (or are you considering to) have the passphrase entry obfuscated like you do for PINs? I recognize that I might have to scroll through a few pages ...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

Hi Slush, Can you give a ballpark update on the number of Trezors sold to date ? Can you elaborate at all on the shenanigans that people attempt to defraud mining pools, past and present ? That would be a long list of scam attempts :-). Some of them were successful, at least for some time. For exam...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

can or will trezor be able to be used in a similar way to the yubikey on top of the bitcoin functionality it already provides? ssh keys/2fa etc. Definitely yes. SSH login is already working in linux (https://medium.com/@satoshilabs/trezor-firmware-1-3-4-enables-ssh-login-86a622d7e609) and it should...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

What are your opinions regarding the Blocksize-issue? are you for BIP100(increase of up to 17%)/BIP101(8 MB and up to GBs)/BIP103(2-4-8-32MB)? I'm mildly for BIP101 and I like the work which Gavin put into the project, but I think some other solutions will work, too. Although rising proposed in BIP...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

In hindsight do you think pooled mining and/or the Stratum protocol has contributed at all to the centralization of mining? Do you see some centralization of mining infrastructure as an unavoidable necessity? I've build the pool because I as a small miner wanted to stay in the game for longer. So I...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

When you started working on a mining pool for Bitcoin, did you have any idea what a large part of your life it would become? When did you realize that you might have stumbled onto something great? Definitely not! It was a nice hobby project. Those days, Bitcoin was unrecognized by anybody except fe...

Re: I'm Marek Palatinus (slush), creator of the first mining pool and creator of TREZOR. AMA - 3rd Dec!

@Marek, thanks for all your contributions to the community!! Questions: 1) what would you do different in the Pool business knowing what you know now? Definitely building bigger team since beginning. Being alone on everything for more than two years since 2010 was mind blowing experience. I had to ...

Is U2F coming? Would it be the only U2F device where it can be pin protected, backed up, and re-programmed? Yes, U2F support is already in progress (https://github.com/trezor/trezor-mcu/tree/u2f). The biggest challenge now is to implement PIN protection into U2F stack, but we're on track of working...
