If your takeaway was that there is no way to improve SPV technology, you must have stopped reading before page 13. 😉 coindesk.com/spv-support-bi…

@santisiri @starkness @twobitidiot @zooko @coindesk What’s the word @alexbosworth? How do we learn more about your project?

I’d caution against trigger-happy dumping of your “free” Bitcoin Cash. If everyone dumps soon after fork, price could easily rebound later.

@_drgo @twobitidiot It was originally considered to be more private. Also it’s quite compact in terms of SPV client bandwidth.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to _drgo

@_drgo @twobitidiot Not following your logic - SPV is fundamentally broken from a privacy perspective.

@dgenr818 @ATT The packet switched network is Lightning 😉
To be clear, there are plenty of potential improvements to SPV.

My main conclusion is that we should strive to keep full node disk I/O reqs below what a single drive can sustain. coindesk.com/spv-support-bi…

@bendavenport @coindesk There is certainly plenty of room for improvement - would also be much more performant if new indexes were added.
