  1. The Bubbly Bitcoin Thread -- Merged Threads

    Does the internet exist? Does it have value?
  2. The Bubbly Bitcoin Thread -- Merged Threads

    LOL! Gold's industrial use is only 12% of the total mined, and jewellery is a store of wealth (ask an Indian), people wear it to flaunt their wealth.
  3. Definitely not a buffoon Showing his true colours, or forgetting to engage his brain before opening his mouth?

    If gold has a "market cap" of $7 trillion and Bitcoin one of $60 billion, and Bitcoin can do everything gold does as a store of value, in addition to being able to be transferred across the internet in an hour, and not having any storage costs, then I'd say that one is severely undervalued, or one severely overvalued. Perhaps they'll meet in the middle?

    Yeah, it was earlier in the year when they closed the exchanges for a month the last time that the percentage dropped. Chinese volume never recovered, Japan picked up the slack pretty quickly and the price soon rebounded. Much of the Chinese volume was fake anyway, as many exchanges charged no fees for trading.

    Where did you get that figure from? More like 12% according to this site: https://www.cryptocompare.com/coins/btc/analysis/CNY

    You're having a laugh aren't you? Core is leading innovation in the blockchain space. Core has improved Bitcoin's sync time manifold, and maintained 99.99% uptime in the face of attackers trying to claim a multi-billion dollar bounty. They have not permitted any roll-backs of the ledger to help recover their friends' losses because of bad code (Ethereum and the DAO), and introduced SegWit which opens the door to a wide range of exciting and game-changing technologies such as: The Lightning Network - Payment channels that improve scaling by orders of magnitude and even help decentralise mining Schnorr Signatures - To reduce transaction size (better scaling) and improve anonymity MAST (Merkelized Abstract Syntax Trees) - Better security and more versatile smart contracts Plus others that I've probably forgotten. BCash is a joke. That it is promoted by shysters like Roger Ver and Craig Wright tells you all you need to know.

    75% of it I have. Saving the rest for a potential PBoC pump!

    Please stop with the Blockstream FUD. Chain Code Labs is the biggest contributor to Core. Bitmain funded alternative implementations that are used in BCash. It then proposed the "UAHF" that led to BCash. It is by far the largest manufacturer of Bitcoin mining equipment, and controls several pools that mine BCash, some overtly, some covertly, and an exchange that listed the coin before its fork. It doesn't take a genius to join the dots. https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/miners-are-leaving-money-table-mine-bitcoin-cash-could-explain-why/

    BCash IS Bitmain. It is mined almost exclusively by Bitmain. Its development is funded by Bitmain. Bitmain, like most Chinese companies has links to the Communist Party of China. Who in their right mind would want to own such a coin? The only reason to hold any is if you think the Chinese Government will prop it up.

    As a scientist and an atheist, Luke's devout religiosity makes me cringe, but here he is working within the laws of mathematics. If this thread was called "The Bubbly Biotech Thread" then his contributions would probably not stand up to scrutiny. Besides, he is one of more than 100 developers who contribute to Core. Any nutty ideas are weeded out by peer review and open discussion.
  12. The Bubbly Bitcoin Thread -- Merged Threads

    Ummm. I think you'd better re-read my sentence.
  13. The Bubbly Bitcoin Thread -- Merged Threads

    I disagree completely. Core smells perfectly fine to me - jam-packed full of competent scientists. The other side comprises fraudsters including Craig Wright, Ver and many that are balls-deep in altcoins. Their propaganda and lies is second to none. BCash is mined almost entirely by Bitmain pools, so much so that there's no point in wasting electricity mining because it's that centralised. It's absurd.

    If you get your information from Reddit, you're reading the output of teenagers (and sock puppets) who have sunk all their pocket money into altcoins and will do any amount of trolling to pump their investment. You seem to follow Roger Ver who's a convicted criminal, and a pathological liar (just a few examples here, here, and here.) along with Jihan Wu whose company pretty much controls the mining industry in China. That's opposed to a loose group of 100+ coders and cryptographers who maintain Bitcoin, along with many other developers who are developing software to run on top. I think you'll find that the noisiest opponents of the Core developers are the ones that have vested interests in other blockchain tokens.
