@juan_manini @MishaRogov The “hard way” would be by losing money mining on a chain fork that few people accept & thus has little to no value

Traditional human consensus systems are like tug-of-war (winner take all.)
Bitcoin’s human consensus system is like a three-legged race.

@seweso Sounds like a misunderstanding. There is no human consensus system in Bitcoin that forces convergence on 1 outcome.

@gavinandresen @AaronvanW @killerstorm That is: a machine consensus system isn’t dead until there is consensus it’s dead (no supporters.)

@gavinandresen @AaronvanW @killerstorm IMO the existence of machine consensus systems isn’t swayed by opponents, only by proponents.

@billy_bitcoin @gavinandresen Right; I think it’s important to differentiate between /machine/ consensus and /human/ consensus.

Machine consensus: agree upon rules, arrive at 1 outcome.
Human consensus systems: force 1 outcome via violence. twitter.com/gavinandresen/…
