@BryceWeiner @CoinChomp I recommend moving to somewhere near the Arctic Circle.

@yourcryptotruth @CoinChomp No updates that I’ve seen, you’ll probably want to follow @matthew_d_green to get news straight from the source.

NASCAR Nicely done, @dogecoin.

@PGuru714 Yeah, it’s neat to observe a trustless and transparent financial free market. Gonna give economists quite a bit of data :-)

@PGuru714 We can detect the vast majority of nodes, though it’s not an exact science. I’m trying to shed light on network load.

@PGuru714 I think any business with a model dependent upon using blockchain will run their own node(s) for the purposes of trust / security.

@PGuru714 My counter argument is that it is trivial to spool up new nodes. Just myself and my close friends have resources to run hundreds.

@PGuru714 Certainly; it’s another aspect of Bitcoin that relies upon the will of the community to participate. This can be scary for many.

@PGuru714 There is no direct incentivization to run a non-mining full node. Some say it’s altruism. I say it’s indirect incentivization.

@PGuru714 I just realized that I overlooked p2pool mining nodes, of which there are at least 300. p2pool.info

@PGuru714 So, in effect, the number of “mining” nodes is probably < 100 nodes, AKA less than 1.5% of the total nodes. Just my guess.

via web in reply to lopp

@PGuru714 Well, a node is needed for mining, but since the advent of pooled mining, it’s no longer 1 node needed per mining machine.

via web in reply to PGuru714

@PGuru714 Mining difficulty self-adjusts every ~2 weeks (2016 blocks) and can adjust in either direction. FYI, mining is unrelated to nodes.

The deeper I dive into the Bitcoin network infrastructure, the more convinced I am that it is sound. Not worried about declining # of nodes.

via web in reply to lopp

Despite recent outcry about declining # of Bitcoin nodes, looks like the trend is only slowed, not reversed. getaddr.bitnodes.io/dashboard/char…

@chrisbro @cryptotraveler Hm; that might explain it, if @coinbase’s @CloudFlare integration is screwed up.

@cryptotraveler Works fine for me on my phone and laptop. Perhaps @coinbase updated their SSL cert and your phone has an old cached one?
