@petertoddbtc Yep, then can we expect that any patents on mining processes will result in Core expending resources to counter them?

@petertoddbtc So your only complaint is the patent? From your original wording it sounds like any future optimizations are at risk…

@RussHarben No idea; I have as much proof that @NickSzabo5 is Nick Szabo as I had proof that @NickSzabo4 was Nick Szabo.

@JeromeLegoupil If it’s as simple as Core blocking all patents, they should say so. Sounds to me like plan is to block any optimizations.

@francoismasurel I don’t think it’s a simple as “we will ban all patented ideas” - it sounds like “we will ban all future optimizations.”

If Bitcoin Core changes the protocol to kill a small mining optimization, it implies that miners should ask permission before innovating.

RIP @NickSzabo4
Long live @NickSzabo5

@adam3us You mean change the fee collection scheme so that a miner must reserve fees from a block that get paid to miners of future blocks?

@Haso_04 @aantonop It has to do with how wallets create txns by gathering unspent outputs. I discuss in detail here: medium.com/@lopp/the-chal…
