@f2pool_wangchun There is a slight distinction between signaling and voting. @shaolinfry put it well: twitter.com/lopp/statuses/…

@f2pool_wangchun Miners vote on which of many potential valid chain forks is best. Voting on invalid chains is something different…

@TaylorGerring Phases are debatable but I still see this as an early adopter / nerdy enthusiast phase…

@TaylorGerring For mainstream marketing, sure. But these systems aren’t ready for that. I see a need for ideologically motivated builders.

@TaylorGerring Most people don’t care about being self sovereign; they’re free to use systems that better cater to their desires. 🙂

@Airbitz @ryanxcharles Wouldn’t SPV clients only see the most cumulative PoW chain if they connected to an Unlimited node?

@f2pool_wangchun Every Bitcoin participant is a potential adversary to other participants. Should still strive to collaborate: 💪🏻 in numbers

@hitchslappy Not that I can think of, unless you’re a huge miner with lots of pools. It’s likely just a public show of support.

@el33th4xor So you’re saying I can make some easy money with these contracts?

Could explain odd behavior during the BU node crash events where hundreds of nodes came back online simultaneously. twitter.com/lopp/status/84…

I think it’s safe to say that these 150 Bitcoin Unlimited nodes hosted on Hetzner are all run by @BTCPOPCO. bitnodes.21.co/nodes/?page=1&…

On flip side, for miners on a 10% hashpower BTC chain for which price stayed same, their profit would be the same. twitter.com/lopp/status/84…

If the Bitfinex chain split contracts are accurate (who knows?) then miners would have a hard time earning a profit on a $200 BU chain.

It may very well be that some day a significant faction of Bitcoin users reject Cypherpunk ideals and split off from the “Cypherpunk chain.”

Good points by all; I think it’s important to teach newcomers about the Cypherpunk ideals that brought us here…twitter.com/i/web/status/8…Qg
