@mikeinspace @BitcoinMagazine Yep, ignore fancy marketing. You have to go deeper! I’ll be delving into this in my next article.

@mikeinspace @BitcoinMagazine Or perhaps you’re projecting your own values onto Ethereum… 😯

@elonmusk @TeslaMotors Sounds great Elon! Please tell me that you’ll eventually get around to building motorcycles 😬

@mikeinspace @BitcoinMagazine I’m saying if you’re on the minority side, it doesn’t matter which protocol version it is - it won’t last.

@Macr0chip @MadBitcoins LOLOL capital controls, enforced via blockchain technology!

There were some holdouts who rejected the first halving & kept mining 50BTC block rewards; it didn’t last long. twitter.com/BitcoinMagazin…

@benalexander_ @jgarzik @octal Predicting one’s own actions is a far cry from predicting those of a crowd. I hear you can short ETH, though.

@benalexander_ @jgarzik @octal I didn’t realize we were talking about future death; in that sense, every currency / system is dead.

@jerrybrito Sure; a large federation of semi-trusted entities is probably good enough for many use cases. A single trusted entity is risky.

@jerrybrito “One common trusted person” logic branch is iffy - that introduces a single point of failure that could be catastrophic.

@bergealex4 Nuance and twitter don’t mix well - for nuanced analysis, I write 10 page articles :-)

@bergealex4 “Alive vs dead” is a binary condition. If you want to talk strength / value, it’s much more complicated. BTC/ETH/STEEM are alive

@bergealex4 *shrugs* market cap is but one of many signals showing the “aliveness” of a cryptocurrency.

@josephjpeters Indeed; I’ll go into detail about the difference in philosophies in my next lengthy article. Stay tuned!

All the fiat users in the world can scream “Bitcoin is dead!” but it doesn’t matter so long as Bitcoin users disagree. Same goes for any CC.

A cryptocurrency can’t die until there is consensus that it is dead. The $1B market cap suggests otherwise. twitter.com/octal/status/7…

I’ve been told many times: “it’s ridiculous / offensive to compare Bitcoin to cryptocurrency ____.” How else will Bitcoin learn from others?

via Twitter Web Client

Don’t get too hung up on what you think /should/ happen in a distributed consensus system. This is cryptoanarchy - consensus is fluid.

Ethereum hard fork is racing ahead - the old chain looks dead. fork.ethstats.net pic.twitter.com/7v9MtqaGTI

@AnselLindner @JopHartog But since the “liveness” is subjective, I find it easier to use the binary condition of operational consensus.

via Twitter for Android in reply to AnselLindner

@AnselLindner @JopHartog Yep, it’s difficult to measure the strength of a cryptocurrency. In comparison to BTC most could be called “dead.”

via Twitter for Android in reply to AnselLindner

@JopHartog “Survived” just means the consensus mechanism is still operational for validating transactions. Can’t really put a $ value on it.

@CoinandCo Vericoin was; I don’t recall the details of all the others.
