If you’re offended when I say “we” then you should just move along - I clearly wasn’t talking about you. Onward! medium.com/@brianhoffman/…

@Aquentson @bitcom21 @ryanxcharles My scaling views have been the same for past two years. It’s not black and white. medium.com/@lopp/de-centr…

@Aquentson @bitcom21 @ryanxcharles If you want to increase your credibility, recognize and avoid stating speculation and slander as fact.

@k9ert Neat! That’s definitely doable if all the stats you want are available via RPC. With Statoshi I wanted to expose internals of nodes.

@GeminiDotCom @jrmoreau If you begin your tweets with the user’s name, they won’t get broadcast to all of your followers.

@Aquentson @ryanxcharles A “Bitcoin Core attack?” Proof of attacker’s identity, please.

@JihanWu @Satoshi_N_ 忌寒您好,硬分叉对你来说可能很简单,但是对社区其他成员并不简单. 如果感兴趣可以私下聊.

@Beautyon_ @jamesldamico @bitcoinyuri Yes, as I covered my latest @coindesk article there are cult-like properties at play.

@LarryBitcoin @rauchg Those are all valid concerns that I share, but it doesn’t mean BU as a concept is impossible a la “flat earth.”

@LarryBitcoin @rauchg Please don’t waste my time with rhetoric.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LarryBitcoin

@1cyrilblanc1 @weedcoder @bitcoinyuri OK. Word of advice, though - you can make arguments without being so aggressive / negative.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 1cyrilblanc1

@LarryBitcoin @rauchg What are BU proponents claiming that is analogous to a “flat earth” argument?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LarryBitcoin

@1cyrilblanc1 @weedcoder @bitcoinyuri It looks like the wikipedia author confused tamper evidence with modification resistance.

@1cyrilblanc1 @bitcoinyuri “Immutability” is hard to define. But no, not every use case needs Bitcoin’s security. coindesk.com/bitcoin-the-tr…

@bitcoinyuri I suspect they are a mix of scammers and victims. But they’re not a part of the Bitcoin community; we aren’t engaging them.

@1cyrilblanc1 @bitcoinyuri A blockchain is just a data structure. Its other properties depend upon your use case and threat model.

@bitcoinyuri Not saying you should respect the opinion of idiots. Saying stereotyping an entire group as such is detrimental to discourse.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bitcoinyuri

@rauchg Not necessarily; some see it as a way to resolve the gridlock of the current debate. It’s an act of frustration.

Honest humble hardworking people are on both sides of scaling debate. Also on both sides: dishonest malicious trolls. Focus on the former.

@slushcz Not bad, though I’d say that this type of problem is begging to be solved with a MapReduce job - would be much more performant.

@Zonacats1 @jimmysong If BU gets > 50% hashrate then supporters may begin contemplating a HF.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Zonacats1

@jimmysong You mean off-chain solutions that don’t require SegWit, right?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jimmysong

@btc_joe My thesis is that because this is a political / personal issue now, the technical merits don’t make much difference.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to btc_joe

@poutintsev There are political and personal reasons. Also, BU gives more power to miners, thus it’s tantalizing.

5) As such, expect that the stalemate will be broken by one side, either via a hard fork or a user activated soft fork.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

4) I suspect that neither Core nor Unlimited will reach their original desired hashrate targets.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

3) Unlimited supporters will become increasingly incensed due to feeling that they are victims of attacks from “the other side.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

2) SegWit supporters will become increasingly frustrated that miners are running unreliable software in production.

1) As more Bitcoin Unlimited vulnerabilities are exposed, the rift between the “sides” of the block size debate will widen.

@ARKblockchain @21 Node counts are tricky; a lot of people don’t realize that Bitnodes only counts reachable nodes accepting incoming conns.
