@seweso @Elessar29 The UASF post clearly states how miners can safely opt out of UASFs via border/firewall nodes. lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitc…

@bendavenport I only use Lyft now because the drivers consistently told me that Lyft treats them better.

@BronxR That’s why I hope we can completely move away from flawed forum models.

@BronxR The community will continue to change as Bitcoin grows; I’d suggest making peace with it since it’s out of your control.

@BronxR Too much vitriol in the less moderated forums for me to recommend them to newbies. I clarified my views here medium.com/@lopp/moderati…

@ryanxcharles What if the chain with the larger market cap and business acceptance is the minority hashrate chain? 🤔

@ryanxcharles How do you intend to determine which chain has the economic majority?

@ARKblockchain It would be more precise to say “some blocks will have SW features” since those who opt out won’t mine SW txns.

@theblackmarble @ARKblockchain Personally I think it’s inevitable that Bitcoin will some day have a less contentious hard fork.

@theblackmarble @ARKblockchain I’m “cool” with other people leaving and creating their own network; I can’t stop them from doing so.

@ARKblockchain There is no signaling from full nodes because that’s subject to a Sybil attack. It’s just a flag day soft fork.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ARKblockchain

@theblackmarble @ARKblockchain I’d prefer that not happen, but it’s a fundamental feature of the system that you can’t change.

@theblackmarble @ARKblockchain Miners are free to hard fork whenever they please. 🙃

@DFSGRINDTIME Given the deadlock from miner activated soft forks and community-wide hard forks, this does appear to be more practical.

User Activated Soft Forks TL;DR: we can Make Bitcoin Great Again by depoliticizing it. Users need not ask permission to upgrade protocol.
