@seweso If Bitcoin users agreed that it was superior to embed into the Ethereum protocol, sure. Requires some real mental gymnastics though.

@gavinandresen The most value denominated in whatever exchange rate you want to use, so long as it’s consistent.

@seweso Unclear what you’re saying; you mean by using Ethereum protocol to generate “bitcoin” tokens?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seweso

@seweso If you’re using Ethereum to transfer BTC tokens, it’s still reliant upon a “Bitcoin” system to be operational.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seweso

@seweso Right, at the end of the day “Bitcoin” is whatever set of rules people agree upon. Any rule can /technically/ be changed.

@TomReichhart The tweet to which you are replying was in reference to a block that took 99 minutes to find.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TomReichhart

@TomReichhart Yes, average time over long enough period will average at 10 min. Poisson distribution results in some long waits though.
