@alansilbert @bergalex @kristovatlas Security inherent to a trustless ledger is valuable, but it’s incredibly difficult to “sell” security.

@Kosmatos I suspect you’re overlooking the many hours you spent climbing the Bitcoin learning curve.

@anarcholiberty @jonmatonis @adam3us @Joi @techreview @qntra is hateful inaccurate propaganda; their useful points are overshadowed by it.

@cypherdoc2 Nodes won’t relay double spend transactions

@cypherdoc2 Users are scooping up the private keys released by CoinWallet to their addresses full of dust & consolidating the outputs.

On the downside, blocks are going to be full for the forseeable future. On the upside, watch the UTXO set shrink: statoshi.info/dashboard/db/u…
