@Trading_Macro This FUD has always been about a system crash, not a temporary exchange rate crash.

2015: “Bitcoin will crash when it hits the capacity cliff.”
2016: “Any day now, folks.”

@TuurDemeester @brucefenton I don’t think goal is to switch, but to coerce Core to adopt block size increase.

@eyeone @LukeDashjr Numbers are believable; my own well-connected node has 78,000 peer addresses in its database. statoshi.info/dashboard/db/p…

@alxduma Not really possible to count on the network; you’d have to look at app store downloads and whatnot.

@ajnelsn @AaronvanW has been doing a good job writing about the intricacies of each fork for @BitcoinMagazine

@uk_c_c Yes they can, and it’s usually painfully obvious when they do.

@GaravagliaJuan Node count can’t be /trusted/ but it is a metric we’ve been tracking for many years and shouldn’t be completely ignored.

@hcarpach Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin 2X

Next month there will be 4 Bitcoin forks. But one of them will siphon value from others, like a mother bear devouring her sickly offspring.

The question for longer term comes down to markets. If BTC only has 15% hashpower but S2X has 15% exchange rate, what do you think happens?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

Safe to assume that at least for a while, SPV nodes will use S2X chain if they connect to an S2X node. This is your warning, SPV users.

@jgarzik Sure, some implementations already ceded the power to decide block size to miners. Total of ~2% of nodes A..twitter.com/i/web/status/9…gt

From what SegWit2X supporters say, sounds like they’re fine w/leaving 98% of fully validating nodes behind if they can drag SPV nodes along.

There’s an argument to be made that the few hundred SegWit2X nodes are more economically important. It’s hard to be..twitter.com/i/web/status/9…WZ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

There are 5 times as many bcash nodes as SegWit2X nodes and yet we’re supposed to believe the latter has consensus to become Bitcoin.

Mandrik I’ve worked in BTC user ops for nearly 5 years and have personally responded to 25,000+ unconfirmed tx tickets. I do not support Segwit2x.
