I see your point, but I guess what I'm grappling with is, once you grant some supervisory authority the ability to revoke permissions or change ownership, why do we still need a blockchain instead of just a centralized database? (For these specific a...

A private key with the value 0 would generate the address: 16QaFeudRUt8NYy2yzjm3BMvG4xBbAsBFM but what I'm trying to understand what is this value derived from?Posted on June 7, 2017 at 9:39 AM
@cryptonaut I'm going to go ahead and implement a temporary change tonight where all new accounts require an approval for their first posts, this shit is going on way too long.

It's getting harder to keep up, just buried like 20 more Spam threads, in "General" alone.Posted on August 11, 2016 at 4:11 AM

@jayek I'm in agreement that we need to scale to the larger block size, but does anyone else feel the fork is a bad idea and should be implemented in core. Not so much an issue with the tech, but the general public perception and confidence in Bitcoin in as a whole, regardless if it's Core/XT. I think the way this has played out is bad for Bitcoin.
You have described the position it sounds like Gavin/Mike found themselves in, thinking larger block sizes are important and wanting to do it through core but being unable to because any developer with commit access has veto power. This is the core of the issue it seems and what led us to where we are now.
My issue with XT is that it's not just making a technical decision, it's the abandonment of a process that could harm bitcoin at it's core, no pun intended. :)
The consensus of the bitcoin engineers being dismissed to a much smaller, controversial team with these changes scares me.Posted on August 16, 2015 at 1:10 PM
