It’s the technical community’s duty to stop Bitcoin’s SPV virus from spreading further. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

@bitstein @bendavenport @alansilbert Exactly; ignore fraudsters rather than engaging them or giving them more visibility.

@jgarzik @ryanxcharles Indeed, and it’s a feature of Bitcoin. On the flip side, no one has the power to stop anyone..twitter.com/i/web/status/8…hS

@Coinosphere @alansilbert If so, then no need for attack. Let them fork off, fail, and come crawling back.

Takes an order of magnitude more energy to logically refute bullshit than to create it. Attacking the bullshitter is a tempting easier path.

@MediumSqueeze @bendavenport @alansilbert Nope, I’ve yet to see any of his claims substantiated to the point that I was convinced by them.

@alansilbert You seem to be limiting your options for some reason; you can attack ideas without attacking people perpetuating them.

@kate_sills @adam3us @coinbase Correct; they’ve already done the hard part via KYC checks.

@coin_artist To gather more data from yet another of many disparate sources.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coin_artist

@coin_artist No one claimed it’s a scientific poll. Nor will it have any effect upon governance.

@coin_artist No, it explicitly shows you what info gets stored.

@AaronvanW @timberners_lee Maybe, but crony capitalism often has unintended consequences. I place no trust in the hands of lobbyists.

@AaronvanW @timberners_lee Mesh networks 🙂
It’s not a problem that will get solved overnight.

@hq83bnn9 @alansilbert Exactly; if you consider certain people to have destroyed their reputation, it’s best to move on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hq83bnn9

@MrHodl @alansilbert And yet having a terrible reputation has no effect upon the validity of your arguments.

@AaronvanW @timberners_lee Need to get rid of the gatekeepers; Internet access must become ubiquitous.

@timberners_lee @AaronvanW If we need to beg governments to “keep the internet open” then we’ve already failed.

@alansilbert Yes, they seem to be of similar mindsets. Don’t see how that’s noteworthy. Let’s focus on ideas rather than people.

@dotnethed My guess is that they’re trying to incentivize more people to use GDAX. More liquidity on GDAX is good for Coinbase’s brokerage.

@_drgo @jgarzik Yes, UTXO commitments are a neat idea. There has been discussion on the mailing list in past month or so. No BIP yet AFAIK.
