@adam3us Sounds like “fundamental principles” to me; not sure “social contract” is best term. Gold’s properties aren’t subject to consensus.

@MadBitcoins @_jonasschnelli_ Immutability is only achievable for the past, though it would be cool if someone figure out future-proofing it

@MadBitcoins @_jonasschnelli_ Agreed; it’s possible from a technical perspective but not from a real-world perspective.

@_jonasschnelli_ @MadBitcoins From a technical standpoint he’s completely correct; I suspect that’s the perspective he’s viewing it from.

@ziggamon @TuurDemeester It becomes murky because there’s no clear definition of which is the “real” Bitcoin in case of chain forks.

@TuurDemeester Every rule in the Bitcoin protocol is perpetually up for vote. Machine consensus must be found in meatspace.
