@grillmaestro A search of my tweet archive shows that I haven’t tweeted at @WCPSS … odd. lopp.net/tweetnest/sear…

@grillmaestro Oh my, it appears that @WCPSS blocked me. I wonder if I hurt their feelings at some point.

@christi68920324 With the existing consensus algorithm. You can read more here: en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Softfork

@christi68920324 Just discussions so far. The difference between forks is that soft forks are backwards compatible while hard forks aren’t.

BTC->USD at -2% today. $GBTC at +9%. $GTBTC premium at 97% over NAV. Do I hear 100%? Any takers?

@cryptotraveler No, but if you read Vitalik’s thoughts on consensus then it shouldn’t be surprising: blog.ethereum.org/2014/11/25/pro…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cryptotraveler

@cryptotraveler Not “some guy,” but rather the network validators. It’s still a form of distributed consensus.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cryptotraveler

@cryptotraveler But did Ethereum ever actually promise fungibility and immutability in the first place?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cryptotraveler

@colbydillion Maybe; the fundamental difference is peoples value of machine versus social consensus.

@Papirys1 Unfortunately not. We were not notified of this meeting and had no chance to air any of our grievances with the bill.

Best case for Bitcoin: Ethereum doesn’t hard fork to recover funds and doesn’t soft fork to freeze funds, so attacker dumps ETH for BTC.

@el33th4xor Sounds like an opportunity for smart contract security reviewers and insurance providers :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to el33th4xor

@gacrux_nz @oleganza Recall that Ethereum has already hard forked in the past. It will hard fork again in the future.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

@gacrux_nz @oleganza I don’t think it promised that. It seems a lot of people are finally realizing ETH & BTC have diff security models.

@oditorium @prestonjbyrne @Steven_McKie @rbtkhn Yep; if I held ETH, I wouldn’t want to hand over that much to an attacker to dump on market.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oditorium

@prestonjbyrne @Steven_McKie @rbtkhn Correct. If Ethereum community comes to a consensus that this is the preferred state, so it shall be.

@GitKilbert No one knows, but no crypto system has the ability to peg a stable value relative to any other asset.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GitKilbert

@rbtkhn It’s possible to change the contract to allow people to withdraw their ETH: blog.ethcore.io/attack-on-thed…

@JopHartog Depends upon your perspective - V has argued for years that root of consensus is social. ETH holders should know what they bought

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JopHartog

@cannamellia It’s not negative - it’s a different model. Both have pros & cons.

@JopHartog I’d be willing to wager BTC that the plan will be enacted as described.

via Twitter for Android in reply to JopHartog

Ethereum has never and will never have Bitcoin’s security model. Expecting it to perform like BTC is setting yourself up for disappointment.

via Twitter for Android

@colbydillion Trust & value would be affected regardless of if DAO holders got their funds back.

via Twitter for Android in reply to colbydillion

@JopHartog The plan for enabling DAO holders to retrieve their funds has already been published.

via Twitter for Android in reply to JopHartog

@WhalePanda If you mean the later buyers, not sure of the details. Pretty sure the original expectation was they couldn’t get premium back.

via Twitter for Android in reply to WhalePanda

This may be Ethereum’s first Goxxing, but unlike Gox, all funds are accounted for and will be returned in a timely fashion.

@TuurDemeester Will ETH holders flee to the safety of BTC?

jgarzik Snarking about intervention by community is misplaced: BTC saw heavy intervention early in life too.

If The DAO attacker “gets away with it” then this will turn into a test of Ethereum’s privacy and fungibility.

via Twitter Web Client

@flyosity @BIUK_Tech It might be the end of The DAO, but definitely not the end of Ethereum.

@RyanRadloff More people are using smart wallets that won’t create low fee transactions that get stuck.

The result of deploying a large attack surface. How the devs handle this crisis is critical. twitter.com/desantis/statu…

via Twitter for Android

@oleganza Vitalik’s view is that the root of all consensus is social and he has a point. Similar coordination happens during Bitcoin crises.
