[https://read.cash/@SeanBallard/the-simplest-reason-against-the-ifp-77cf8e9e](https://read.cash/@SeanBallard/the-simplest-reason-against-the-ifp-77cf8e9e) My answer is not "for or against the IFP"-type of answer to the "legitimate value proposition" of what funds for dev team like ABC actually is neccessary for. I paste my answer here as well: "through a legitimate value proposition" Let me pitch on what value proposition the node development teams offer: 1) Maintenance/vigilance ie. if a new attack vector against the network is found, they go in and provide a fix quickly ie. they always have one or two devs on alert. This is what e.g. ABC has been doing since the beginning of BCH. 2) They develop the next needed upgrade features for the network - everything from single features such as a specific smart contract OP code to meet an immidiate demand in the market to more complicated upgrades/rewrites such as a much needed rewrite of the mempool acceptance code (\*). 3) They make research into areas that need more exploring before deciding on a solution. For example - everybody agrees that 0-conf needs improvement to be able to serve fast casual payment with high security, but nobody is absolutely sure what approach is the best, yet. Avalanche (/Snowglobe) is just one proposal for a solution to improved 0-conf security. (\*): The rewrite of the mempool acceptance code will solve many things, such as "removing the max 25 chain tx limit" in a safe & scalable manner, better fee policies and general scalability such as much higher transaction throughout & faster validation. The price for this much needed rewriting of mempool acceptance code, besides the needed man-months to do it, is also that back-porting of improvements from Bitcoin Core is no longer applicable which means that BCH node development will have to carry to cost of maintanence to a much higher degree than before, going forward!

Good read. I was one of those that wasn't in favor of the IFP (not that I had any power, I am not a miner) and thought that ABC handled it a little clumsy (which was a first, really). I was both surprised and a little taken back tbh. But overall I have to agree with everything you write here. Lastly, I completely agree with this: "Follow the builders, not the protesters". Yes yes and YES!

I know for a fact that not all BCHN devs are that retarded. But there seems to be one or two who seems to be hellbent on rekking coorporation just because "french man bad". I don't always agree with ABCs approach on everything - the IFP being one of things - but I think the anti-ABC fudding is childish and detrimental. Fact is, if it wasn't for ABC, BCH would have failed a long time ago.

The subject is the total fee income to miners. THIS is what ETH has surpassed BTC on. This just shows that in the long term with adoption that miner income and hence security is a volume game, and BTC has failed so utterly on that front.

True. I saw somebody did a beta-version of a system for BCH where a merchant could receive BCH and than it was insta-converted to USDH. Now, if there was a direct USDH to normal fiat gateway, that could become rather powerful.

"But fundamentally it has not." Why not? BCH can do everything BTC can and more. It has vastly more on-chain capacity, better/more smart contract features (though not as complicated/advanced as Ethereum) that is cheap to use, tokenization features (SLP tokens being the most prominent), good non-custodial privacy services that are cheap to use, Schnoor signatures (still missing from BTC) etc. Literally the ONLY thing BTC has that BCH has not is higher hash rate and congested traffic. The higher hash rate is mostly because of a higher coin price, and the higher coin price stems from historic fundamentals rather than future fundamentals.

No, not really. This is driven by miner incentive. Most miners are neutral and/or pro-big blocks, and they have an incentive to make sure all chains stay stable. So, it is not really about trust, but incentives. This has been established for quite a while now. Also, it is not trivial in expences to keep up a reorg attack attempts, even at the current hashrate. You're FUDing and/or vastly exaggerating things.

And yet the two reorg attack attempts on BCH never got past 3 blocks before the attackers blocks got orphaned by two of the major miners.

LOL Keep telling yourself that. I use a multitude of cryptocurrencies including LN a few times. BTC & LN is really the shittiest and most complicated to use. I have zero reason to use it over any of the others. BCH has the advantage of working just like BTC did before it was crippled plus some now better features and wallets. But you're right in that this is a free market and people can use what they want. I bet this is the reason for you and others spending so much time in here defending the boondoogle-solutions for BTC.

Fees are slightly better on BTC, but still high, primarily because on-chain traffic on BTC has declined. BCH has less traffic but also VASTLY more capacity, so high fees and congestion will likely never happen on BCH. Also, BCH has more advanced smart contract script OP codes compared to BTC and with less limitations.

Wrong. BCH is much more capable than e.g. Nano or Doge in many fronts. Along with the cheap txs, there are extremely cheap smart-contracts (and more capable). Plus, the amount of services that support BCH are much larger than Nano or Doge - so that is just bullshit. I got into Bitcoin as revolution as well and for that revolution to have any relevance the system needs to be able to cater for a lot more users than BTC is capable of. Btw. I am not at all ruling out that some other what you call "shitcoin" someday can outcompete BTC in number of users, marketcap etc. Which one though is hard to predict of course. Your remarks regarding Jihan Wu being in control of BCH, just shows how fucking little you know about what is happening. LOL

Yea, well, even though I certainly have a lot to criticize about BTC, I cannot call it a scam since that would be untrue. Also, some of the work the BTC Core devs are doing is very usable, it is just everything related to on-chain scaling (or lack thereof) that is of no interest. But things like e.g. TapRoot is very interesting.

LOL Please tell me when there has EVER been a reorg attack beyond a few blocks and that has had ANY impact on user funds on BCH? That's right. It has never happended, and I can assure it will never happen. And while doing a tx even with 1/20th of the hash rate it is still not practical to conduct a double spend attack over more than 4 or 5 blocks (the cost must include opertunity cost of switching away from mining BTC), let alone have a reasonable likelihood of success. So, given that a tx is usually stuck for a few hours on BTC (currently), on BCH the few more blocks one has to wait for larger values amounts to the same. When BTC is really clogged, the more BCH shines.For smaller value transactions that are accepted as 0-conf, it is safer on BCH than doing the same on BTC. So...while in theory there is certainly some truth in what you say, it is both exaggerated and somewhat a non-issue. Edit: There is no point in discussin this further. It is the same over and over, and you don't mind paying extra in fees. Fine, it's a free market.

Good question. I honestly don't know. I'd say that both should be tried out. My personal hope would be BCH, since it will add to the network effect in a way that will make the underlying demand for the asset grow and hence price in a longer perspective. But the downside is the price fluctuations. But one thing is hope, another is reality. It USDH adoption is better than no crypto adoption, and it still runs on the BCH network and hence fee income will contribute to network security.

True. However, the most effective way to neutralize a threat is not to blatantly try to destroy it completely.

When you create a new wallet, it usually tells users that the wallet is not backed up and that a user needs to backup the seed phrase. How to find a the seed phrase for a wallet. Select the wallet by clicking on it. Next select the three dots in the upper right corner. Scroll down to "Show my recovery phrase". Now it will show the 12 word recover words. Write them down. If you have a recovery phrase, you can use it when creating a new wallet (clicking "+ Add" button) and choosing "Import Wallet"

I can agree that mining is too centralized on all POW coins, but using words such as "conspiring" etc. is just hyperbole. This proposal has been discussed for a long time and a lot of people thought at was a good idea for a while (me included).

I don't think that assuming "Roger will fix everything by throwing money at it" is a good way to move forward. In fact I think that is part of the problem that we stand with now. I sincerely hope that a split can be avoided (unless it is an amicable "lets try this and see if this alternative 'roadmap' works"-split while maintaining and acknowledging that BCH must be stable). I don't want to go through a split where half of the existing services end up on different chains - that is a lose-lose situation for everyone. ESSPECIALLY those that have done so much up until now.

Just one clarification - in case of a split the "poison pill" (which is a hyperbole word for automatic replay-protection) acts as a guarantee that if somebody wants to split ie. continue mining the old chain after a 6 month upgrade has kicked in, that user transaction of funds funds won't be replayed (and risk loosing money) on the old chain. Exchanges get really upset when splits are made without replay protection and with good reason (this is part of the reason why so many delisted BSV - it was not just because "social media". Kraken officially categorized BSV as a shitcoin when it was still listed).

So why have we not seen forks from that earlier? None of other nodes have forked off because of not having the "poison pill". Someone else just explained it to me. The "poison pill" itself just make sure that whoever runs an ABC (and for now BCHN node) MUST upgrade in order to stay on the chain. Other nodes that do not have the poison pill will not fork off if they are not upgraded unless there is a new consensus rule in the upgrade.

" BCHN announced it will stop automatically splitting *non-upgraded* nodes away from the Bitcoin Cash network, starting the first upgrade after November 2020 (i.e. May 2021 if we stick to the current six-month schedule). This allows an update date to be cancelled or postponed without unnecessarily requiring a software update for non-upgraded nodes. The planned new behaviour of BCHN is consistent with the current behaviour of all node software other than ABC. " So, it could cause an split in the network, if not all agree to remove the 6 month "poison pill". Since ABC is the go to node for most exchanges and miners, this seems like dumb idea to do unless more consensus can be achieved.

Very true.

Instead of doing another competing platform in a small market, I think it would be better to throw more support behind those that have some traction - e.g. LBRY. [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com) could then offer easy exchange between LBRY coin and BCH - that would be powerful and could potentially be good business for [bitcoin.com](https://bitcoin.com).

"I am genuinely interested to see what ideas and innovations come out to solve the problem." Me too. I think BlockTorrent to reduce network traffic orders of magnitude for propagating large blocks is promising. Also methods like using Avalanche for syncing mempools is very interesting. Regarding your GitHub analogy - yes. BUT not everyone needs to validate from the genesis block in order to run a node. Also, UTXO commitments is a way to consolidate. It is also worth remembering that there is difference between what BSV does (storing large data in the blockchain - that CLEARLY prices out many from running a node and even mining due to the cost of node) and what BCH is trying to achieve (keep avoiding pricing out network actors beyond what Moores Law allows while still scaling for world cash usage (minus big data) to keep the network from becoming vulnarable to censorship attacks).

I just know that there was a potentially chain splitting bug back in 2018 that made a lot of miners switch away from BU after the handling was evaluated. The bug was also in ABC, but was fixed very fast. If remember correctly it was the short response time and handling from ABC that made many miners switch. At least the one that I know. Also, I think Bitcoin. com also switched to ABC (and now BCHN, which is basically a clone of ABC - at least for now).

Yea, but the BU solution is really not a solution. Miners need to mine with a node that has that higher limit, otherwise it will just break 0-conf security (ie. it will be easier to double spend attack 0-conf if some nodes in the network are using different limits).

The problem is that fixing that problem requires a total rewrite of the mempool acceptance code in ABC that is inherited from Core, and since most miners use ABC to mine because it is more trusted for stability than eg. BU, it really depends on ABC. But it is a stupid limit (like most Core limits) and one that makes things more complicated to work around.

It was 25 before. It has been risen to 50 recently, but it is not enough. There really shouldn't be a limit. The problem is that the node software the miners use to mine with cannot handle an unlimited chained tx count.

The way the mempool code works in Core does not scale well with large blocks. This is why this one of the things that need a complete rewrite for BCH to go for substantially larger blocks beyond 32 MB (while maintaining anti-fragility) and higher validation speeds and is part of the BCH roadmap. There are also other boondoggles in the Core codebase that doesn't lend itself very suitable for big blocks (some of it addressed in ABC and BU for BCH). But, yes, they could increase the block size to at least 8 MB and still be good.

" merchants with BitPay " \-- Not really, since BitPay usually makes the callback for checkout as soon as the tx is broadcasted (ie. 0-conf). I assume BitPay are the ones making the guarantee for the merchant. Reg. a new DAA - it requires a hardfork. But those happen every 6 months on BCH, so that in itself is not an issue. New DAA proposals are being discussed. However, I am not sure how long it has come. Reg. miners - Some large miners do switch-mining ie. they switch back and forth between the 3 SHA chains (BTC/BCH/BSV) to optimize their profitiability, and that what is causing the difficulty adjustment oscillation and in fact in turn cause more miners to be able to exploit for more profitability. The proposals for new DAA I have seen (where the one from Jonathan Toomim seems the most promising w.o. any serious drawbacks) strive to mitigate the oscillations in difficilty.

This is an oversimplification. But there is definitely a problem regarding infrastructure funding.

My mistake. But as a stop gap of 500 would solve the problem in 99% of the cases, but the thing is 500 as a stop gap is not really an option anyway without solving the underlying issue. With the underlying issue fixed - the limit could just be removed or be "in the thousands" since the Core code for the mempool doesn't make sense for BCH and should be rewritten which will reduce the chained-tx-count to trivial linear complexity (which is the underlying issue).

At current capacity and with no or little changes BCH would be able to handle somewhere between 8 and 12 million transactions pr. day. With 10 million users that is 0.8 - 1.2 tx pr. day pr. user. So in order to handle 10 million active users BCH network would have to improve it's capacity/transaction throughput to at least 4X the current - while of course maintaining the censorship resistance, distributed anti-fragile nature and not price out services like BSV does or price out users like BTC does. Most of the challenges with scaling on-chain capacity while maintaining anti-fragility and censhorship resistance relates to how fast blocks can be validated and how fast a block can propagate in the network, so that needs to be improved. There are already a several solutions being discussed and is part of the BCH roadmap. Some things are easy to fix, some require a lot of work and hence funding - some things have managed to get funding but not everything, yet.

/r/btc/comments/gw81ul/what_current_concerns_will_be_of_zero_importance/fsudac9/

Yes. The problem BCH (and many other crypto spaces) are facing is basically a "bootstrap"-process. This is also why splits are so damaging, since for every split the adoption is split and set back and hence commitment from a variety of companies is split and set back. There is no doubt that losing the companies that were/are actively investing in BTC services and infra had a high price. Worth it in the long run, but it also carries a larger risk.

Thats propably true. It seems BTC is going towards being purely a speculative asset that is sent in batches between exchanges and less used for p2p payments, whereas BCH is almost only being used as p2p payment and tokens which is currently a minority use case (and payments are covered by alts such as Dash as well). Luckily this is where the biggest growth potential is.

If you're referring to token trades on Memo, this has mostly just been to buy some as part of a fundraiser with "potential" dividend later on if success. But goal has not been profit really.

The only reason BSV doesn't have more disruptions to their network when very large blocks are mined is because there are 3-4 mining pools all connected very tightly (and controlled basically by the same people and interests). Just look at their blocks in e.g. [blockchair.com](https://blockchair.com) . Every big block is mined by the same miners always, the remaining miners that occasionally mine BSV are usually mining a maximum 16 MB block and many only 1 or 2 MB blocks. This is because the basic limitations for big blocks in a suffciently distributed system have not really been solved in the BSV network. THIS is why the BCH roadmap has the elements it has. Right now any miners can set their soft-limit from 1-32 MB, and most miners have it set at 2,8 or 16 at the moment. They will propably continue to have that regardless of the hard limit since reality beats marketing.

That is highly unlikely for three reasons - 1) Bitcoin Cash has as it stands right now, 32X more capacity than BTC from the get-go. 2) BTC processes approx. 350.000 - 400.000 transactions pr. day and cannot handle anymore. BCH does about 50.000 pr. day and can handle about 15 \_million\_ pr. day today. 3) BCH has in it's roadmap several scaling proposals that will increase the capacity at least 10 fold without sacrificing decentralization and anti-fragility. So, as you can propably calculate from the top of your head, there is ample room for more adoption for quite a while before BCH even get near anything that resembles a limit :-)

Decentralization is not a primary goal, however it is prerequisite for sound money that cannot be easily taken down by any one entity. BSV is everything that most other cryptos are not and while there might be a market for BSV, it is NOT the same market as those seeking censorship-free, independent p2p cash/money.

>So based on Dash's ecosystem, what can we expect from Avalanche on BCH? Some services will no longer require you to wait for confirmations, but there likely won't be a significant boost in adoption. Actually, it will be a major adoption metric because you can shutdown ANYONE that tries to sow doubt about the safety of BCH 0-conf transactions. You have no how much shittalk or lets call it "anti-marketing" against BCH there is with regards to this and it does have an impact. Also, it will a lot easier for POS and processors to handle because they don't have worry about having a DS buffer and stuff like that. >I do not think it is wise to spend a large amount of money on one feature that doesn't contribute to adoption. Especially if that feature changes the core of how BCH works and if the economic soundness of that feature is also uncertain. Everything that makes the life easier for the ones you want to push adoption to, is a win. It is really about how sellable a product is. Remember, BCH is not the only game in town. >From a merchant's perspective, Avalanche is no better than InstantSend. You explained why a merchant just as well should just use Dash and not look back. You see the point now?

"Dash indeed has InstantSend. Did that lead to mass adoption of Dash? Do merchants replace BCH with Dash in significant numbers?" Well not exactly, but it does mean that some services accept Dash immidiately where BCH waits for 1 conf, so using Dash in those places means speedier expedition even for large amounts. "It just allows more participants to be involved in the decision which transaction to lock. " Kinda the same, isn't it?

I think the benefits are super important. You no longer have to explain at length to exchanges, merchants, POSes etc. why they don't have to wait X confirmations. Right now 0-conf is fine for smaller amounts (and better than it is on BTC), but it is not nearly as final for larger amounts. Even DASH does that better in fact, with it's chainlocks from masternodes, and while it is not perfect it is better and good enough that most services accept DASH "0-conf" as settled(!) With Ava on BCH it will be safer than relying on masternodes.

Insuance pr. block will have to be proportionally smaller, of course, so that the net result is the same over time. But if you read the whole document you will see that he weighs pros & cons quite nicely. The conclusion seems to be that in order to pursue a shorter blocktime for an existing system like BCH the pros will have to be much higher than the cons, and that does not seem to be the case. Esspecially scaling is difficult with shorter block times (more orphans etc.) as is explained as well.

Centralized: Wrong. Slow: Only in part correct. For large amounts, confirmation is needed. For sub-$100 amounts, 0-conf is fine (and safer than on BTC, no RBF, never full blocks, 2 sec grace almost guarantees no double spend (less than 1% likeihood of success, afer 4 secs practically impossible)).

> No, I mean larger minimum pledge sizes. Confusing vocabulary, my bad. We can only fix a certain amount of inputs to a transaction, so there's a need to have minimum pledge size to ensure that fullfillment can always happen. I see. Okay. That's quite a trade-off. So, this is because there is an upper limit on how many inputs there can be in a transaction?

"Bitcoin price soared after the victory he mentions. BCH has done nothing. " BCH actually soared to 0.25 BTC right after SW2X failed, and BCH stayed as a top dog basically until all the CSW debacle began that (rightfully) destroyed a lot credibility for BCH. Now CSW is gone from BCH (good riddance) and the build up is slow, sure. But I am in it for the long term, not short term speculation when it comes to BCH. I have no problem trading BTC and others, but I don't do it on fundamentals. BTCs fundamentals are crap long term. Just look at the friggin' mempool today, and this is only the beginning of a run-up.

Well, crypto is still in a bootstrapping phase and adoption (and prices) are still low in the grand scheme. Some crypto-currencies can actually be used like a currency with low friction, but with less formal security until they become more mainstream and prices rise. Some other crypto-currencies are already at this stage starting to problems when used as a currency due to expensive fees and slow confirmation. Sure, the security is higher but it is also close impractical to use, so why bother?

"There were plenty of people, Amaury included, with the foresight. Also me, as i knew he was just spewing stuff with nothing tangible" Sure. But businesswise he also said things that made sense. My point is - yes, Amaury was right about him because he could where he was a fraud on the tech side. But on the businesside it is harder and much easier to be manipulative. "To be a social influencer and manipulater isnt good. Like to pretend to pledge to BCHD and then to pull it back out for negative publicity. If you learn anything from the past then it should be dead obvious this guy is the next Calvin Ayre." I have heard this Calvin Ayre argument repeated a few times now, and I really cannot see what the point is. And Marc De Mesel exercising his opinions by putting his money where his mouth is, regardless of whether you (or I) agree with it or not is not a crime. Insinunating some moral high-ground and conjecture as to why he first pledged and pulled back really has no value. Your guess is as good as mine. I btw. do NOT agree with Marc De Mesel's argument for pulling his pledge for BCHD. I think it is too harsh and I wouldn't do it that way. But it is his money, and only he can decide what to do with it. "No. People who sit on social media, attacking people who contribute value, not contributing value, are toxic trash. Even if the things they are saying has elements of truth here and there. Toxic trash." I pledged for BCH and I have donated to ABC repeatedly over the last two years. I am not rich so I am not a whale donater, but I do what I can.

"Craig Wright should NEVER have been endorsed. He built NOTHING and did nothing but LIE." Heinsight is always 20/20. "First of all, you can thank the whale philanthropist and social media influencer Marc De Mesal for half of that." So? Is it a crime be 1) a philatropist? 2) a social media influencer? 3) a succesfuld businessman? 4) decide for one self where to put money? "Second of all, Winning on Flipstarter was never a goalpost for ABC. For the record, they raised 10x what flipstarter did in half the time, through private arrangements." Congratulations. That is awesome :-) "If voluntary funding was sustainable, then why does BCHN have plans to be operational and competitive for only a year before reevaluating? Makes you wonder." Well, that is pretty self-evident. If they deliver and work well with other eco-system actors, they will have an easier time raising funds again. If not, I guess they will be sent packing. At that time I will understand if ABC feel the need to gloat :-) "WHERE HAS HE FUNDED ABC DEVELOPMENT?" Except for helping with lawsuits. I don't know. "And it is your exact narcisstic attitude that is causing a negative talent inflow in BCH. We WILL lose more of it if this disgusting and childish behavior keeps up." You really need to calm down.

1. Making every personal career decision a person takes a point of contention is bad culture. 2.

Saying that he pretends to be an ABC investor is manipulative and you know it. Reg. CSW. Everyone makes mistakes - is that an excuse to be ungrateful? I think it is bad culture. The 2-3 weeks of sudden transparency and clearer communication without insulting everyone disagreeing is a step in the right direction. However, the effects takes longer. Don't get me wrong.

Depends on the context. BCH is similar to BTC and LTC is similar to BTC with minor differences. In that context it is not a false statement. But as time is progressing BCH is becoming more and more it's own with new smart contract OP codes, higher capacity, Schnoor signatures, better privacy, fewer & fewer limits etc...and of course no SegWit. But 2 years ago, BCH was argueably "just" a bigger block Bitcoin just like Litecoin is a shorter blocktime Bitcoin.

I would dare to wager that less than 10 real persons or merchants in the ENTIRE lifetime of BCH have been defrauded by accepting BCH 0-conf payments. Lots of attempts have been made, but \_very\_ few are successful. If a grace period of 2-3 secs is maintained before accepting the 0-conf transaction the propability of a succesfull double spend nears 0%.

Nodes teams doing critical infrastructure competing in a cutthroat manner for funds is propably the most inefficient way of doing things. Node teams must be able to work together in good faith. Funding campaigns are awesome, but really the best way to get things progressing is having companies that rely on the infrastructure contribute to funding of infrastructure development and maintenance. The biggest challenge BCH has is that not many (large) companies exclusively use BCH and therefore feel a responsibility to fund infra/dev, so finding those that are willing is the challenge. I do not think it is impossible, but it is propably hard work.

"The only reason BCH has any liquidity is because it’s listed on custodial exchanges. Let’s be real dude 95% of the people got into crypto from a custodial exchange interfaced with traditional bank systems." Yes, that is true, and that is fine as long as other options are there. "DEXs on BCH or ETH or XLM or any other crypto don’t change the fact on-ramp from fiat exists and mainstreaming is about bridging services to consumers with as little friction as possible." Not denying that at all. But my point is that as soon as the crypto is bought, using it as cash should be non-custodial AND frictionless which is both possible and already here, just not in the form of BTC+LN. "Grandma still has to set up fund a wallet wallet. Or she download cash app and send $10 from her bank account to Little Joey who wants bitcoin for his birthday. Neither grandma or Joey needs anything but cash app." This is just as easy from the e.g. the bitcoin.com wallet - except it is non-custodial. But I agree that the higher degree of bank integration makes the Cash app usefull for more things, but that is just because fiat still dominated. The (original) goal of Bitcoin was to make fiat irrelevant. "It’s all in the background. No esoteric fees. No long waits. None of the friction you described." What happens if little Joey wants to move his Bitcoin to another wallet? "No additional pain points to set up a BCH wallet either." Setting up a BCH wallet with one of the mainstream wallets like bitcoin.com wallet takes a few seconds. "Nobody uses BCH. It’s price today is at or below where it was when the chain split. " That is not true. On many POS system BCH has more activity than the other top coins. AnyPay is one of those: https://anypaycharts.com/ "The market hasn’t embraced it despite them getting the advantage of being listed on the same custodial exchanges that grew because of bitcoin. The only reason they got listed was the liability the exchanges had to their users because of the fork." That is also not true. Plain and simple. "Despite this advantage coming to market BCH is still not embraced. It’s not resilient. Performing a 51% attack costs very little." Reorg 51% attacks on BCH have been tried and failed everytime. Also deep reorgs beyond 10 blocks is not possible. If anything, it has proven just resilient it is. "It’s now split off into multiple other chains." If by mulitple chain you mean one split into BSV. Also, that it not an argument. Argueable BTC has been split off more times than I can count. Basically all 1st gen alts are forks from BTC. "BCH is failing according to the market." BCH is still the 3rd largest (XRP is not a crypto currency) and often has more volume than Litecoin and more value transferred than ETH on some days. "Nobody is embracing the big blocks. I’m glad I sold my stack at $3500." I am glad that I can gradually switched over to BCH and ETH. BTC is no longer working for me. "Like it or not, when the big money starts flowing into the space the same phenomenon that pushed out all the idealists in order to commercialize the internet are going to do the same thing in crypto." That requires the product to work properly. "And you'll most likely be an early adopter. Already some of the most promising projects in crypto are using custodial services or smart contracts that nobody knows how to audit properly and carry risks people cant readily see." Sure, but that is not an argument.

The split was definitely more political and about control than anything technical. The whole "CTOR bad" and "OP\_CSV bad" thing was just a red herring. Sure, there are arguments for and against CTOR specifically (another sorting scheme might have worked just as well), but nChain (a BSV company) were actually in favor of CTOR for a long time before suddenly backtracking after feature freeze date. People and companies changing stances and making changes after feature freezes is mostly a red flag. Also, the arguments against OP\_CSV was just plain stupid to say the least. That OP code has been one of the best things that has happended to BCH smartcontract features since sliced bread.

"Yes it would be a custodial option. As would all the services brought by third party companies flooding into the space. Tying it to the mainstream system makes it easier for consumers to use. How did you get any crypto without a custodial service like an exchange?" On BCH you can make blind non-custodial escrows, which is excellent for decentralized exchanges and market places with no custody and hence no KYC. There are already two that uses it - ZapIt (wallet+exchange) and localbitcoincom. "The greatest opportunity for crypto related companies is by tackling all of these pain points in a way that is transparent to the end user. Grandma isn’t going to want to set up her own lightning channel. She’s going to want to send $10 to little Joey the easiest way possible." It is true no normie wants to deal with the pain of setting up nodes of any kind. There should really only be two steps - 1) Install wallet, 2) Fund wallet, 3) Use (with no weird esoteric high fees, wait times or strange limitations). This is basically how it works for e.g. BCH as I have discovered now. "Controlled stress tests are meaningless. Deployment in real world environments where it’s constantly under attack is where the rubber meets the road." Not all the stress tests were controlled. For instance on BCH - many of them were attacks, trying to bring down the services on the network. First time it happened it was revealed that many node configurations needed to be tweaked and defaults changed to better handle load and soft limits on block size when mining increased. Second time, nobody noticed there was an attack until someone noticed the sudden spike in transaction for a whole day. "So yes every other project wishes they had the same problem bitcoin has of being secure and resilient and operating while under constant load and attack." BCH is propably one of the most attacked chains in existence. It seems to have many enemies. Same for ETH and that one chugs along just fine (bugs in smartcontracts does not count). "That is why it will be one of the chains the mainstream will embrace first. That and the value stored on it will drive companies like V/MC to support especially if a company like Square beats them to market and proves success in a place like the US." Maybe, but if it is custodial, the problem that Bitcoin set out to solve is still not solved and hence irrelevant.

"Square is looking to eliminate all of that mess. Users wont even need to worry about what's going on in the background and wont have to pay to open and close channels because companies will manage and provide that service in exchange for a fee that is far lower than what users currently pay for an on-chain transaction. They have the volume they can aggregate and access to existing payment networks. They have an infrastructure in place and a retail footprint already. They've been working on this for over a year already." A service that only works in the US for US residents. Also, I have little interest in something that is tied into the banking system, except for buying crypto and never look back. Also, what you mention is cusodial. Not impressed. "It hasn't been choked to death. It's still going." Of course it still going. When I choked I mean that capacity was choked by not increasing it and adoption got choked. Before that epic failure BTC adoption was rising fast. "There are times where the network has heavy usage and times it doesnt. " Indeed. ie. Unreliable service. Sometimes fees are low and confirmations fairly quick sometimes it takes hours or even days. FFS. "The fact they are one of the only chains operating at full capacity is a problem every other project in the space wishes they had." This is not a desirble problem to have. So, no. But you're right that of course other chains would like more usage ie. demand. If another bull market ensues that will absolutely happen, because BTC capacity is full and cannot take anymore before clogging up. ~400k daily tx is maximum. "The fact is no other projects have the same demand or use and cant say how they would function under a similar load in the real world." Actually several chains have proven that during stress tests on their mainnets. "Again, nobody said transactions need to be instant and on-chain. There are plenty of ways, as we've seen with the traditional system, to scale transactions per second in second and third layer payment solutions regardless of how slow the process is to reconcile the ledgers every 24 hours at the bank level." Now we are going in circles. See my earlier reply to that.

"Lightning can handle the TPS." Two nodes connected by a channel, yes. But just onboarding new users and hence create just one channel pr. new user will take years with a limited base chain blocksize of 1.7 MB. Also, the only reason some things work ok now on LN is pretty much because it has become and hub and spoke network with a few very large centralized liquity provider nodes. "It will arguably be bigger and more decentralized by orders of magnitude than the base layer because slim clients can be installed across entire POS networks, phones etc." That is not what it looks like and trend has been over the last 12-18 months. "With loop ins and loop outs the need to record and close transactions can be mitigated. " How long will that take until it is ready? And why even bother? "Remember too what mainstreaming is actually going to look like. Billions will flood this space targeting the most valuable chains to bring services to end users with the greatest monetary advantage being in reducing friction or integrating current payment networks like V/MC." You are certainly right about reducing friction. This is also why I have a hard time seeing how BTC+LN is solving that. I have used both and it is by far the worst regarding friction among the top crypto currencies (ok, Monero is pretty horrible as well, but for other reasons entirely :-) ). "We’ve known for more than 10 years about Tesla. They didn’t jump to $700 overnight. I bought some for $30 a share back in like 2010. I bought Netflix at $80. The market had literally a decade to jump in. Those who were paying attention took the opportunity." Indeed. And Bitcoin has been around for 11 years and the first 7-8 years was constant growth, until it was choked (almost) to death.

"Using any crypto as cash in this regulatory environment is a bad idea for most people living in Western countries." Not all western countries have retarded tax rules like the US. Switzerland, Australia, Germany and France for example have tax laws that exempt tax from cash use of cryptocurrencies, either completely or up to a certain amount (Australia it is around 10.000 AUD, which makes it practical). "We need legislation that allows us to use crypto without having to report and pay capital gains." But you're right, that it is a rock on the road - at least for those who care to report every transaction. It is not like it as it that difficult to not do, as long as it is not a house or a car being purchased. "There's nothing that says everything has to be done on chain either." True. However, 1 MB block (or effective 1.7 MB w. e.g. SegWit) is not enough regardless. A couple of days ago the avg. fee on BTC for getting a confirmation in the next block was $3. Funding a Lightning channel presents the same problem along with the extra wait time (3 blocks from the first confirmation) before being able to use it. "The current fiat system is based on a system that writes a block once a day and is filled with thousands of providers assuming risk or extending credit in order to give the appearance of an instant transaction." Yes, that is true. This is also the EXACT point of accepting 0-conf on Bitcoin for casual amounts (only takes 1-2 secs), the way it originally was intended on BTC and still works on e.g. BCH or Dash. This is called "coffee & brick'n'mortar"-transactions. "No project is fully baked and ready for mainstream." True, but some are already ready to take on the next 10 million users with no problems. "Second and third layer solutions dont have the same kind of restrictions or need for consensus giving them a much larger range of options to bring innovation to the space." Yes, but with a choked base settlement layer, it's not gonna fly. Also, having people only buy IOUs and never have it settled on-chain begs the question why not just use a fiat-system like Apple Pay then? The UX is far superiour to LN by several magnitudes. "As long as they write a block the same as any other participant we could easily see TPS be scaled even if the protocol remains in it's current state." No, it cannot. Even the original Lightning Network paper states that in order for the LN network to perform for world adoption the base block capacity needs to be around 133 MB given current avg. transaction size. "Another crypto may indeed take the top spot one day, but at this moment Bitcoin is so far ahead of everyone else that such a huge displacement will be obvious to those watching this space and we'll all have the opportunity to get in if we choose to." I don't buy that. This is like saying that because the Ford Motor company has 100x the marketshare compared to Tesla, that they so far ahead that there is ample time. If you look at some of the services on ETH and BCH for example - some of them are pretty snazzy and completely p2p with no custodians or intermediaries of any kind and they are quick, cheap and easy to use and the wallet UXs are starting to be quite impressive and all this has been achieved in less than 2 years. And then there is the privacy solutions like CashFusion for BCH, giving Wasabi wallet on BTC a run for it's money (and even Monero), and at a fraction of the fee prices as well.

I bitch because I actually wanted to use BTC as cash and in commerce. I was so pissed when Steam, Stripe and others dropped it in 2017 because of the scaling failures and resulting crazy fees and slow confirmation times. You're right that BTC propably will be fine in the sense that it will stay alive and used by a niche of people for a long time, perhaps even enough growth to retain demand enough for halvings to make the value go up over time. But mainstream world adoption will never happen unless it's scaling roadmap changes to include on-chain scaling - that would remove a lot of the competition. But it won't happen, or not very likely due to interests wanting another direction. Fair enough. However, I wouldn't be surprised if another crypto takes the top spot one day.

Is it a crime to be a high networth individual now deciding for oneself what to invest in / donate to and dare to have an opinion? Also, comparing it to Calvin Ayre is a stretch that only makes sense if there is a narrative to feed. Also, if one subscribe to the problem of one or few guys having too much sway over the direction of BCH financially, which I can appreciate, one has to acknowledge the problematic situation as to who is supposed to control the IFP whitelist and under what criterias. This is still not solved, and hence, just a much a problem. At least the problem of finding investors is truly voluntary and the more the merrier - it is just a matter of giving investors a good reason to invest. So maybe that is the elephant in the room, yes?

> Both of those “reports” of his that you mentioned are examples of what I’m talking about. It’s been shown time and time again that he selectively excluded and skewed Australian store data to paint BCH in a better light. No, it has not. It has been stated REPEATEDLY that the number are from brick and mortar and it is not really that diffucult to just take the numbers from TravelByBit and compare. The results are obvious. Here are some other numbers from AnyPay (tl;dr - Dash and BCH crushes BTC here as well): https://anypaycharts.com/ "For his RBF video, he intentionally tried to instill fear by saying stores would be vulnerable to double spend risks." They are, since it so easy to do. "When in reality, it was based off of a single poor PoS implementation." Well, he has recommended them switching to another POS. But it doesn't change the fact that BTC txs get stuck for hours unless you pay several dollars in fee OR use RBF to push it through (in which is also costs several dollars and is unsafe anyway for the merchant as 0-conf). So which is it? Nah...man. The writing is on the wall. "Please show me evidence of a single successful double spend resulting from RBF if it is supposedly such a risk. " The way RBF works IS LITERALLY double-spend as a feature! You replace a transaction with one that has a higher fee in hope of getting it confirmed faster. By doing a reverse transaction as the child transaction, it is really easy. Yes, a POS can choose to not accept RBF txs (as 0-conf, as it should), but you will have to wait pontially for hours or days. LOL

BTC is used primarily as a speculative asset. That is why most people don't care. The p2p cash aspect is a minority use-case in crypto still (unfortunately).

Personally I think Marc De Mesel puts an unneccessary fixation on personal issues (or too much weight) instead of looking at the quality of the product. However, Marc De Mesel is perfectly in his right to do with his own money as he sees fit. I don't like the way the IFP white-list is decided, but I also do not particularly like the big personal fixation in all this drama. It is counter-productive.

For me it is not the small percentage of coinbase reward redirection that is an issue. It is neither a tax nor does it change inflation. It borrows a little security, yes, but that is it. MY issue with the IFP is the way the white-list is controlled. There is no clear definition as what the criteria for the beneficiaries are and how it is decided. This is BOTH a liability in terms of regulation (BCH risks being classified as a security) and because of the white-list setup it has the potential of moral hazard / cronyism.

BCHN along with ABC, BCHD, Bitcoin Verde & Knuth are full-node software implementations. A node is a piece of software that runs the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) protocol and does stuff like verify transactions, create transactions whenever a user initiates one, broadcast/communicate with other nodes in the network etc. Also some node implementations are used to mine the transactions that are made on the network into blocks. ABC and BCHN are the node implementations that are currently the most used for mining blocks on the BCH network.

I prefer to listen to what everybody has to say as long as it is not hyperbole or passive/aggressive. As soon as it starts to become hyperbole I move on. By the way - It has clearly been shown now that voluntary funding can work and people vote with their wallets - as it should be in a free market. Now the question remains - what will the miners vote? We shall see. One thing is for sure though - if there is a split, I'm out of BCH/BTX or whatever.

It is less of a plague than the threat of a deep reorg attack. BCH is still a minority hashrate coin with many enemies, the checkpoint mechanism while not ideal, is the only effective defense against a deep reorg attack at the moment.

I think the miners along with businesses on BCH and investors are the LEAST interested in a split and with good reason. It will be a lose-lose situation. The BCH/BSV split was a pretty big step backwards network effect wise (and valuation wise). Regarding the future - people better get used to the fact if the ecosystem grows, the likelyhood that there are people one disagrees with rises. Remember BCH should be for everyone, otherwise it has failed just like BTC but from fracturing instead lack of scaling.

I never wait 2 hours. Don't have to. 0-conf is not broken on BCH unlike BTC. "I'd rather just pay 30 cents." 30 cents is still high, but ok, for larger amounts it is still acceptable. But are you ready to pay $3? Right the next block fee is close that. And back in 2017/18 where adoption was higher on BTC, the fees where often above $50 fir simple transactions.

You might want to get ready then, since a pitiful 54 blocks out of 1000 blocks are being mined with BCHN. The rest while it is not specified is propably ABC, since almost nobody mines with BU AFAIK (at one point BU had a major bug that made quite a few miners drop it).

Actually, Amaury came up with a good point in another thread here on /r/btc (standby, I will edit in the link shortly), that there is a need for a common playbook of rules of engagement like the IETF. I totally agree with that. So, my proposal would be something like this: 1) Postpone the IFP to avoid further confusion at this time. 2) Arrange sitdown with representatives of all the major players - miners, dev teams and businesses in BCH. The goal - a standard "rules of engagement" set that everybody agrees upon w.r.t. what is acceptable regarding census changes, how coorporation should go between protocol teams, a formal specification and a formally agreed upon roadmap. Every year there can be a sitdown to disguss about adjustsment to the agreement, if neccessary. 3) After an agreed upon "rules of engagement" playbook - Those who break the rules in the eco-system will be expelled. It is much easier for investors and new people coming into the eco-system to build to know that stabilty ie. low risks of major splits is guaranteed. 4) My impression is that Nakamoto Consensus doesn't work for ecosystem coherence, only for confirming transactions and "happens-before"-adherence in a distributed system and therefore a formal IETF style commitee is needed.

>However, you need that the actors participating agree on the rule of engagement, and these who do not are expelled promptly. Makes sense. But that would require that a formal panel / sit-down is done and rules of engagement formulated and everyone there signs off on that formulated agreement of rule of engagement. Right now there are no formal rules of engagement as far as I can see. I guess that is the very core of the broken governance in Bitcoin.

Yea, I know that one. There are exceptions to it, but the likelyhood is large for it to be true. I sincerely hope that this is one of the exceptions and that the node projects, incl.

Sorry. But I am too afraid of a split - BCH cannot afford another split, that will destroy it utterly. I believe there are other less controversial avenues than the current version of the IFP. I want to focus on building too but it is difficult was all this contention and I don't want to succumb to some other cartel shitcoin. The last split to BSV was very costly for many in the ecosystem.

Well so far it isn't going so well with volyntary funding methods such as Flipstarter, which is sad to see. I am beginning to think that maybe there just isn't as much interest in actually putting money where the words are coming from. As long as people refrain from pledging ABCs point is proven for every that passes. Maybe the missing pledges can still come (I hope, there is still 15 days or so) or there simply isn't enough money or interest.

That is not entirely accurate. He came to BCH some time before from Dash, and started working Latin America BCH adoption (as he did with Dash before). He offered his services as Biz Dev til ABC when it came apparent that it was neccessary. I find it both logical and necessary. ABC should have had a biz dev a long time ago. Might have avoided the whole shoestring budget situation and kept more attacks away from BCH.

The Poison Block attack while a theoretical attack vector in reality it is a "Red Herring" created by Bitcoin Core proponents. In practice the likelihood of the poison block either 1) not propagating fast enough (if it manages to be "poisonous" enough) and hence has increased chance of just being orphaned leaving the attack miner with a loss OR 2) most nodes in reality can verify it quite fast and get on with it and the rest of the network will hardly notice any hiccup. The stress tests that have been run on both BCH and BSV give indication of just difficult it actually is to create real disruption with such an attack. It vastes a little storage space with crap data, but that is pretty much it. Does that mean that block size should be unlimited to be filled with all kinds of data or not or some middle ground? Well, there is a chain for all 3 viewpoints. One thing for sure though - BCH & BSV (ignoring that BSV is controlled by a single company/cartel of personas) has the capacity to meet substantial p2p cash demand. BTC does not.

Depends on how the merchant is configured. But even if it is so that the merchant receives fiat, this is an excellent bridge until crypto becomes more trusted by the mainstream.

About 90% of the miners at one point signalled for SW2X. If they had sticked to it, it would have activated and there was nothing any non-mining Bitcoin Core node could have done about it. Exchanges and payment processors would have had no choice but to switch to a node that followed the miner majority chain.

Wrong. 1. If one has to accept BTC, always wait at least 1 confirmation since RBF on BTC makes double spending easy. If BTC users cannot wait for 1 confirmation to go through, drop BTC acceptance altogether. BCH works better anyway and 0-conf is safer. 2. Just avoid BTC altogether and use BCH, ETH etc. instead. BTC sucks anyway.

Also, I stopped onboarding people to BTC in september 2017 and switched to BCH, and that was before Roger Ver did it - he supported BTC with SW2X until it failed in November 2017, only then did he start to put his support behind BCH.

What you say is that congestion can lead to arbitrage bubbles. Maybe. I can't rule that out. But the maxipad cited in OPs post is not saying that. He is saying that illiquid money leads to more valuation, which is just nonsense. It might lead to bubbles, but definitely not long term appreciation. Another thing he says that is nonsense is that mining is "more complicated on BTC". That is every definition just false. Mining works EXACTLY the same on BTC as on BCH.

The IFP will not do that in it's current form since it risks splitting the chain over disagreements about the IFP, and so therefore he is not in favor of it as he has stated in an official Bitcoin.com video, that you can find on YouTube. ...and of course he wants things that makes his business a success.

Thanks for taking the time for a reply that makes sense. I do not disagree with your point here. In fact, you are quite right. This is also why I recommend that people who don't want to take any risks in terms of having to trust the closed source code should use another wallet e.g. Electron Cash or some other Open Source wallets (there are a few outthere already). Crescent Cash is another good OS wallet. But there is one point I would like make regarding [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com) \- They have ZERO incentive to steal peoples funds. Imagine the amount of hellfire that would reign down on them if suddenly their wallet starts stealing funds or leak data to the FBI or something like that. That would be the very anti-thesis of what Bitcoin.com's business is. Does that mean that one should trust everything they do implicitly? Of course not. But measured trust for good UX is fine AFAIK, and that is what the [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com) wallet is. If one wants to be safe, just don't have your entire stash in that wallet. Have the stash on a wallet you can verify and transfer funds from there to the less safer wallet for "daily" use. Or something similar, whatever works for each person.

That is certainly true as long as crypto is seen as a high-risk investment. When the markets are very uncertain people go to (fiat) cash (even gold is considered risky), since fiat cash is considered the safest option relatively, even with a little inflation because it is manageable the asset (fiat cash) is liquid.

Propably the same reason as for BTC and ETH. [https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactions-btc-eth-bch.html#log&1y](https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactions-btc-eth-bch.html#log&1y) Truth be told crypto adoption has been held back over the last 2 years by several things, such as: \- BTC failing to scale and cater to utility and hence a lot of merchants quit crypto because of that. It is a hard job to get them back again. \- BCH has undergone a hashwar and split (the BSV split) which also was a setback. \- ETH has shown not to be so practical as p2p cash and it has capacity limits like BTC has. \- New abysmal KYC+AML government laws in many countries making on/offboarding far more cumbersome. The new hope are p2p non-custodial exchanges. What gives me hope is the newfound focus on utility on BCH, also compared to other cryptos. To be honest I think the next 4 yeards will be interesting times for BCH in a good way.

He is not wrong. However, there are risks with ETH as well. The risk of a very bumpy ride towards ETH 2.0. But this can be said about BCH as well.

"Either we all agree or we split in thousand forks and this experiment died! Ver wanted to fork... well.. live by the fork, die by the fork!" Ver didn't want to split. In fact he fought for SegWit2X on BTC a whole 3 monts after BCH forked off. It was only AFTER SegWit2X failed on BTC that Ver shifted to focus on BCH. Those are the facts! "Rolling checkpoints are a band aid! And listen here! They're a very BAD band aid because if an attacker will release a 10 block reorg, BCH network will be split in two between the nodes that reorgged and those that didn't. PERMANENT SPLIT!" There were attempts at this when BCH prize was below $100 and nobody succeeded. It is a lot harder then you think it is.

The amount of a transaction has nothing to do with the fees. However the byte size of the transaction does. Complex transactions can be quite expensive on BTC.

BitcoinABC is the name of the node software (and team) that most miners use to mine Bitcoin Cash. However, there are other node software implementations that are compatibe with the Bitcoin Cash network such as BCHD, Verde, BCH Node, Flowee, Bitcoin Unlimited etc. , but besides BitcoinABC only BCH Node is used for mining as well by some miners. Most of the other node software implementations are usually run as non-mining nodes that are used to index and access data on the blockchain for various purposes. However, as far I have heard BCHD and Verde have aspirations to win the hearts of the miners by making their software "mining grade" stable.

"It's got everything to do with the fact that BCH forked without consensus." Yes, because what Core was doing to BTC was and is retarded. "You just neglect the fact that for 36 days BTC will pay double for same machines. Yes this will come back to equilibrium after the 36 days, but until then BCH is under very big risk." Sure, that is a possibility, but considering how many times a similar oppertunity has been there, I am not particularly worried. Also, the 10 block check-pointing (while not ideal from Nakamoto viewpoint, I admit that, it is an emergency thing against defrauding reorg attacks) makes reorg attacks almost a non-issue for exchanges (which are the most vulnerable to re-org attacks). For normal BCH users (ie. not exchanges) a re-org attack as a minor inconvenience at most.

What makes you think that BTCs price will suddenly rise after the halving, because it will have to that to maintain the current hashrate, otherwise that would drop to half as well, which means the relative hashrate between the SHA coins will be the same and attacking will bear the same cost. Edit: Changing the DAA (yes, that is the correct abbreviation for it) makes no difference regarding this. Loser.

Sometimes BCH is more profitable to mine than BTC, sometimes it is the other way arond. That propably won't change with the halving. However, the overall hashrate of all SHA coins will drop when all of the them have halved, unless the price starts to rise of course and/or the network usage rises significantly so that more fees can be earned.

Regarding BTC he was very much right. BCH is kind of a "second chance", but where there are still some of the same governance problems. There is STILL not a finished formal specification and people are still relying on a specific node implementation to be the "reference implementation" giving some devs proportionally too much power over the protocol. This was acceptable for a while, but it is becoming a liability. I don't want to judge any particular individuals, since this will happen regardless of "who" carries the "reference implementation"-cepter.

It's a free market. Any service that deems BCH capable of offering a solution can launch on BCH as they see fit. More traffic and activity means more revenue for miners when going into the halvening. It can also drive up demand for BCH a little because "gas" has be paid.

Yes. But without the sound money aspect, you might as well just use a fiat-pegged payment rail. Works just as well as the best BCH wallet services UX-wise. Here in Scandinavia I can do instant bank-transfers between two bank accounts in the two different banks. I can use a service such as MobilePay directly tied to an account for instant mobile payments in shops etc. I can make demands to friends - e.g. say I and 4 friends want to split a restaurant bill and I pay the bill, afterwards I can just make "take the rest and divide it with 4 and send out invoices to be confirmed by friends MobilePay". So, yes, UI wise crypto is behind, even BCH. Right now, the sound money and censorship resistance is the ONLY real edge. So you're right that crypto needs to be BETTER and SMARTER than the current state of the art fait UX.

I mostly agree with everything you say. This is the same situation in Northern Europe (Scandinavia), where there are services such as MobilePay etc. and of course Apple Pay as well. HOWEVER, MobilePay does not work for tourists and it doesn't work for me when I am in another country. Only my VISA does (or ApplePay if I had an iPhone). BCH works everywhere (assuming there are places to spend it, of course). But yes, BCHs focus on cash register adoption will propably pay off the most in countries with crap banking sector, hyper inflative fiat and dysfunctional payment rails in general.

Ok. We agree on the username treatment, then. Regarding OC perspective, I would say that as soon as the business is established, it makes sense to start enforcing such things.

This would be funny if it wasn't so sad. Think about how nice the world would have been if Core would been unsuccesful in sabotaging BTC on-chain scaling. We would have had no (major) splits and commerce would have been booming and the value much higher than today. Instead we got adoption momentum completely fizzled out in end-2017. BTC became a speculative asset, BCH forked off to try to salvage the original value-proposition that actually got it to where it was. We are still in the "jury is still out" on BCHs viability. Biggest threat is a split over the IFP, otherwise there are many to be exicted about, but we have lost 3-4 years of adoption momentum due to the extreme stupidity (or malice) from Core and the like.

What political stance is that? I think their decision is bad business. If they want people to be exclusive in their platform this will have the opposite effect. They should contact the user instead and try to convince the user to make his/hers contant exclusive to read.cash, not semi-ostracizing users from the platform.

Valid points, sure. But I would argue that up until this IFP thing and the way that is handled, ABC have largely been the ones acting responsible. But anyway, just because there are no formal rules, different actors can still choose to act with a certain discretion and respect. I mean if people are face to face, they won't be talking like they do on reddit. Otherwise, there would be a bar fight in less than 5 minutes :-)

I agree with the first you say. But... That last sentence is not fair. Yes, I disagree with the IFP, but saying that BCH is fucked up because of said dev is neither true nor fair. Fact is, ABC are the ones that has kept the network from imploding, at least until something else is proved. I hope that BCHN etc. will add to the network and not aid a split.

That time on /r/bitcoin was because he was austed from an nChain controlled Slack forum and he decided to post it on /r/bitcoin. But yes, it was a childish thing to do and didn't really help boost the respect for ABC. Regarding exchanges being against certain coins - yea well, some of the shittier ones where virtue signalling is more important than business, perhaps. For most exchanges it is uncertainty and threats of lawsuits that is the big no-no. So if a coin splits often and/or a coins controlling parties threaten exchanges with lawsuits (ie BSV), that is sufficient and justifiable reason to delist and just go with the "cannot be bothered"-approach.

"ABC's fundraising is oriented at "Miners, Exchanges & Other Businesses". Note how holders are absent." This is called professionalism. I think it is a good thing if the BCH has a professional node team as well. Plenty of options for holders to donate - BCN, BCHD, Verde etc.

I do not believe the government interference thing with regard to this. If anything, I think ABC tried to stir the pot with the IFP, to kick-start a necessary elephant-in-the-room discussion regarding funding, which I still agree needs to be solved. I don't think it was per se malicious intent even though I think IFP is shit, but they might have overplayed their cards.

The simplest solution is to patch the DAA - one proposal for a better algorithm was recently proposed by Jonathan Toomim, a miner and dev, that will make it harder to game the difficulty by greedy miners and hence remove the need to mine altruistically at peak difficulty. Besides the portion of altr. mining is quite small. Most of the time, it is profitable. > it will go through, i predict, because altruistic mining is not sustainable. no split means altruistic mining needs to be done. split means that the miner that is altruistically mining is getting his money back, albeit in a centralized fashion. but this also means the no tax fork will need altruistic miners and the ones who have been doing it cant afford to mine like this. in the end the no tax will win, imo, but it will go through periods of unusability as the difficulty adjusts. If no split, the DAA will just be patched (Toomims solution is solid), so not very likely going forward. In case of a split - in that case, I don't care anymore what happens to BCH, since it will destroy the network effect and hence value. I will move on and not look back.

"Does this goal include a 5% tax on the block reward, and a minority changing consensus rules on the majority?" No. If that happens, it will have failed just like BTC failed. "The 5% tax is literally what Satoshi was against. Chancellor on brink of second bailout. Foss devs do it for free.... Satoshi didn't need money. Nor did he take any from force." While irrelevant. The "sound money"-ability will no longer apply if the IFP goes through. "You can't stop free riders in Foss. They can still fork code from the tax chain to the no tax chain" True. But I don't believe that the IFP will activate, since a split will be counter-productive to everybody (though understandable if IFP activates).

It basically opens up for rent seeking and general moral hazard, 2) In Bitcoin we don't fuck with the coinbase. PERIOD. BUT -- the miners actually seem to acknowledge that the value DESTRUCTION will be larger than what can be gained if the IFP forced through.

There is also nothing going on w.r.t. better scripting or anything like that on LTC. BCH however has active work in all areas. Esspecially the privacy/fungibility areas and better scripting is on fire!

When more people start to use crypto for remittance, buying stuff, paying salaries etc, BTC will become so slow and expensive that the contrast would be like using an iPhone compared to a Nokia Symbian phone back 2009. Literally old-world vs. new world experience. Everyone will understand at that point. However, if crypto remains being just a speculative object, then yes, BTC would propably still be the king of shitcoins.

Ok, dogshit was a hyperbole term. Sorry for that. Let me put it another (and more reasonable way). -- This is like saying that McDonalds can start replacing the meat in their burgers with meat substitutes, because it is their business and they decide. Sure, they can do that and _some_ customers might even appreciate it. Just don't be surprised if most customers and investors stay away going forward. BUT there is also the possibility that the effect is reverse. My point is, yes, the ones with skin in the game can decide - no doubt about it. But you cannot guarantee that customers and investors will follow. It is a free market after all, and there are PLENTY of alternatives ie. competition.

"I think I see what you're saying. And you may be right, because the last hashwar was arbitrarily long and ended arbitrarily." It ended because in order to protect the exchanges from threats of double-spends (the threats came from CSW and others, though they have been busy erasing the evidence for ever having said that - fortunately some clever people have it on record). ABC added checkpoints so that the chain could not be re-orged beyond 10 blocks, which meant that exchanges could set a min. required deposit threshold of 10+ blocks confirmation to avoid the danger of attackers defrauding the exchanges that listed BCH. So it was not arbitrary. It was a well-founded reaction to threats. But beside that BCH kept the PoW done ie. hash lead the majority of the time and therefore had the longest chain no matter what. "I thought the prefork block was the one that mattered personally, but BSV technically got that, not us." Prefork block? Matter how? "And yeah I guess we all have to drop what we're doing to split coins anyways." Hopefully not. The IFP needs a timeout to find better solutions.

Doesn't change the fact that the ticker can end up pointing to a shitcoin. Also, there is no guarantee that the chain the ticker is assigned to will continue to be majority chain in terms of hashrate etc.. So what happens if that chains network effect, price and hence hashrate becomes miniscule? Should the ticker be assigned to the other chain? (Propably not, but that could happen).

"The market does not arbitrarily decide the ticker" I never said that. "The Proof of Work is the objective measure by which we've always decided which chain gets to keep the ticker. That's what everyone follows." Yes, that's true. However, the ticker can end up pointing to a shitcoin and/or the other chain takes away enough network-effect, devs and projects so that the resulting two chains are both weaker and everybody is back to square one. I will not go through this again. That much I can guarantee you.

Look, I know very well what the risks are, and quite frankly I can see through almost every shill-attempt there is. I have been in this space for quite a while now, and have experienced both splits (BTC/BCH and BCH/BSV). While this one is different, I also see the same kind of childish behaviour from people both for and against IFP and I don't like this behaviour. It is childish, divisive and nobody wins from that. If a split happens, it is because egos are too big and nobody wants to compromise instead of coorporatin since everybody seem to otherwise agree on the goal. For the record I think the IFP in it's current form is loaded with potential moral hazards and that is a red flag to me. But I must admit that I am equally dissapointed in the way some of the people against it are acting. I just hope that those that have voices of reason wins out. Until then I _will_ postpone my projects. Sorry.

Hear hear. But in order for BCH to even have a chance of doing that, this split-risk nonsense needs to stop. NO sane person wants to invest time and money into something that is so unstable. I say this as someone who is currently quite heavily invested in BCH (relatively compared to my overall investments), but currently I have put some projects that I was about to quit my job to pursue on pause after the whole IFP-debacle. I really wish there was a higher degree of grown-ups when handling this.

Nothing wrong with PoW. The problem is that BCH is a minority chain. It was never the intention to have multiple SHA chains competing. If BCH continues to split (and the split off smaller chain doesn't die out) this will never resolved itself. What should happen is that eventually all SHA chains except one should die off in time by losing the competition so there is only one winner left. After that PoW will still be superior to POS. POS creates oligarchies. Switching to POS is kind of admitting defeat before having merits pan out. Right now checkpoints is solving the most imidiate attack vector.

They have explicitly told why they are against the IFP. Protocol level coinbase redirection and a white list that is populated by a non-transparent process (where process is a polite word).

First of all it is not a fork attack. It is a drop-in client node with IFP code removed and the voting bits cleared. That's it. The effect of running that node is the same as configuring an ABC node with the bits cleared for "No". Also, the motive is quite clear - avoid BCH becoming a shitcoin where suddenly it is ok to meddle with the coinbase in the protocol and have centralized maintenance of white list entries also in the protocol.

Twitter is a shit platform to discuss important topics. Due the short message format and the tradition for extreme posturing everything quickly degenerates into mockery and shit posting. But this forum also has a tendency to go the way of the retard very quickly sometimes.

I try to balance things, and asses who or what entity does the most work. Those that do a lot of work and commitment have a head start in my head.

Agreed. Displaying both the current fiat value and the value at the tx time in the tx log entries.

I think the best way would be to contribute with outstanding tickets and todos. I assume the roadmap and the goals is still fairly agreed upon. This is a good chance to contribute to the protocol and infrastructure in a positive way now there is actually some funds for BCH Node. I really hope that politics and personal grievances can be turned down to an absolute minimum. After all everybody have the same goal - censorship free p2p currency, sound money and freedom.

I just said that I don't like the IFP the way it is. But remember - this IS a miner proposal and somebody needs to put the voting into code. Since ABC is, at least currently, the preferred reference client for mining, it is only natural that the code for the feature and voting for it resides there. And I am perfectly fine with people creating e.g. the BCH Node for of ABC without that code so as to have a drop-in node for miners wanting to vote against the IFP without the need for configuration.

" In that context is it not better that the teams work on different crypto projects than try to find consensus? " Sure, but only people in those teams can really make that decision for themselves.

I can appreciate the sentiment that it takes two to tango, and Amaury is not flawless. He is human like all of us (to my knowledge there are no sentient androids yet). But didn't you understand any of what Joannes Vemorel (OP) wrote?

I don't want BU to become the new reference client for the exact reason Vemoral puts up.
