Serious blockstream shill discussion thread.
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Do you guys think that those retards trying to spread fud about BCH are actually paid shills? Here's my list of assumptions going from most likely to least likely:
>Most likely
They are literal retards and 15 year olds who have no friends, so getting an imaginary pat on the back by the "popular" trolls feels like belonging to a community. Little do they know that most fud accounts weren't even real, but thankfully these kids are poor as shit so they can't move the market anyway
>second most likely
There's still paid blockstream shills on here alongside the retards
>less likely
They are also cashies who want to exaggerate how dumb corekeks are. In reality, BCH FUD threads to indeed turn into something positive for Satoshi's vision, because anyone can read how every corekek is a retard and cashies are overall reasonable people with good arguments. It's unlikely though, because it assumes intellingence in corekeks, and if they were even mildly intelligent, they wouldn't be corekeks.

I am sure that there are *some* paid shills. there is nothing stopping it, so someone will be doing it.
But most of the interested masses will have just chosen "their" team by some arbitrary coincidence, and now be defending their "own teams" position in any way they can because "we are good and they are bad" Simple tribal mind. This effects people of any age, look at middle aged sports fans and how strong their commitment is to local football team X. Meanwhile one state over, an almost identical group of boomers are strongly believing that their local team Y is superior in all regards.
Nothing wrong with this, commitment to a causes and fighting and losing are necessary for the process of evolution. The team that is more fit-for-purpouse will win most of the time.

Bullshit
Selling someone btc (a ponzi) and claiming it's bitcoin is fraud.
There's tons of online material explaining how bitcoin is revolutionary technology which allows p2p cash payments. If someone buys BTC based on this information, aren't they defrauded? If they buy BCH based on it, they aren't, because it follows everything that has been said about bitcoin 2009-2015.

You don't know what a Ponzi is.
Bitcoin is still Bitcoin which Satoshi Nakamoto published in the whitepaper. Specifically, it's the majority chain which has the most PoW invested into it.
Bitcoin Core is a client that runs on the Bitcoin network, and has some non-breaking "upgrades" which allow additional features which do not upset the behavior of all other well-behaved clients on the Bitcoin network.
A Bitcoin Cash client literally won't run on the Bitcoin network because all of the well-behaved clients, following Bitcoin's rules and mining the majority PoW chain will reject their blocks.

First of all, none of them work on a 2009 client, good luck using segwit on one, lol.
Second, I know exactly what a ponzi is. BTC is one - it has no value other than the hope that someone else will buy at a higher price.
BTC from 2013 was not a ponzi, because instead of speculating on someone being dumb enough to pay more for useless internet tokens, people were speculating on future adoption, which would naturally create a price bottom.
I've been explaining to normans why BTC isn't a ponzi on a daily basis 2012-2016, but nowadays I'm out of arguments, because kikestream literally destroyed all my arguments.

I think BCH has way too much grassroots support for rich cash holders to even consider paying for shills (not worth the risk of being exposed). Theoretically it's not impossible for paid BCH shills to exist, but every early adopter I know switched to either Ether, BCH or both.
And I can clearly remember the period around May last year till the first BCH pump where organic big blocker posts online were drowned in paid spam. I was also there when even censored cesspools like /r/bitcoin and bitcointalk.org were 95-99% big block supporters.

Bitcoin has hard forked in the past, but the majority of mining power moved onto the hard forked chains, which is the current Bitcoin chain.
Bitcoin Cash does not have anywhere near a mining majority, and to put in the same amount of work that the Bitcoin network has would require ungodly amounts of hashing power to switch to mining Bitcoin Cash and leave Bitcoin. It may eventually become the case that this chain would have the majority PoW invested into it, in which case I would concede that it is Bitcoin.
It's a shame that people see Bitcoin's biggest strength, that changes require a majority decision, as something they must sidestep.

If BCH overtakes BTC in terms of value, the lack of DAA on BTC would most likely mean the end of BTC anyways. And the only reason it hasn't is because the coin that had nothing to do with the BITCOIN idea got to hold the bitcoin name.
If Satoshi's vision got to keep the name Bitcoin and the BTC ticker, and the full blocks, high fees + buggy LN chain was the alt, it wouldn't be in the coinmarketcap top 100. Meanwhile BCH begins adoption from scratch, but I can totally see a filppening happening, even as early as November.

Sad thing is that it wouldn't happen unless we get a huge pump, and the most probable cause of a huge pump (we're talking $5k and above) is Roger, Jihan and Calvin pouring money to draw attention.
I wish more people would try to get informed about how these things work... Yes, I had more time to accumulate now and 210 BCH might be enough for me to retire, but I'd still trade these gains for the time we lost in the adoption game.

BCH adoption wasn't "from scratch". It was a mass adoption by users already invested into the Bitcoin network who could now cash out their Bitcoin amount on two separate networks.
Bitcoin works fine with the presence of LN. It doesn't even know LN is there. LN happens off chain, and all Bitcoin sees is a few multi-sig transactions.

As for majority PoW - in due time :). As for the fact that BCH doesn't have majority PoW yet - it would have if the chain that's actually trying to be p2p money held the bitcoin name and the chain that's essentially a pre-alpha banking suite had a different name. Unfortunately due to newbies being scammed into thinking that the BTC they bought was online money and not a ponzi, the flippening of PoW would take longer.
>Bitcoin works fine with the presence of LN.
Theoretically, except in the case of mass adoption, no-one would pay $1000 fees to use it. If you're ok with something working so perfectly fine that no-one would use it, maybe you need to understand reality better, and I'm trying to be nice here.

I'll pass on that, senpai. I don't want BCH to pump hard like that, I'd prefer a slower steady rise. The only reason BCH pumps the way it does is because the FOMO is real. There are probably more fence sitters than there are fanboys of either camp. I'd wager that many on the fence probably recognize that BCH is superior and are tired of getting fucked by Core, but are afraid to make the leap. Then when the price goes up a decent amount pure emotion takes over.

If LN is successful, the number of transactions that actually need to happen on-chain will be fairly small. It will eventually be possible to sign up for some online wallet service and have your funds effectively given to you over an existing LN channel.
People are too quick to write LN off before it's even been tried, but resort to shitty non-complaints about "lol banking hubs", which shows a big misunderstanding about the technology (that anyone can open a channel to anyone, and can route anonymously through any channel which allows them to).
I can't say for sure if LN will be a success, because nothing like it has ever been tried. It's new technology and we've only tapped the surface with what is possible with it.
But even if there is an immediate and pressing need to increase on-chain capacity, there are better ways to approach it.
One way would be to introduce a UAHF, where active nodes can signal that they intend to increase the block size at a specific sequence number, in which point all active nodes can decide whether or not to participate. This approach (UASF) was pretty successful in getting SegWit adopted.
But we know the reason why Bitcoin Cash wasn't approached in that kind of fashion. It was because a disgruntled miner whose business was under thread due to SegWit adoption, chose to immediately transfer his hashing power onto a forked coin (Bitcoin ABC), and then began a rebranding and marketing campaign to gain adoption.

Blockstream had to demonize something in order to create the tribe mentality for their stupid supporters. In reality, Jihan could have killed BTC if he wanted to, but he was actually ballin' during the $50 fee period, there were some blocks that had more btc in fees than block reward. He obviously doesn't like segwit, but he loved everything that happened to BTC and clearly supported it throughout the entire fiasco.

You complain about us misunderstanding the subject while you clearly paste blockstream propaganda and have no clue how routing is supposed to work (I don't blame you, neither do lightning devs, otherwise they would have countered the "fud").

I understand perfectly how routing works, as currently defined. It's a simple onion routing protocol where every node knows about every node and his neighbors via a gossip protocol. Routing at present is done entirely by the node wishing to initiate a channel and he knows most of the topology of the entire network.
The issue with routing isn't how it's defined now, but how it is going to scale. The network must be segmented so that each node doesn't need to see the entire network. We don't know for sure yet how best to implement it. It's an ongoing area of research and there are multiple different ways it can be approached.
But people like to spread the fallacy that the only way a network can be segmented is via a hub and spoke approach, where we must give special privilege to some nodes to route payments on behalf of everyone else. "The internet works this way, so Lightning must work the same".
Bullshit. Mesh networks have been researched quite well, and there's no single approach to creating them. A regular node doesn't need to only see one "segment" of the network as an internet user does because he only has one cable running between his home and the exchange. Nodes in LN can connect to an arbitrary number of nodes - there's not a single point of failure, however much cashies would like to tell you must use it like a bank.

Bitcoin and every other cryptocurrency, and even older technologies like bittorrent work via a gossip protocol. The gossip protocol is required to avoid centralization. If you require someone to connect to a special node to tell you about the network, you've already lost.
A gossip protocol is you connecting to several random nodes and asking "tell me about the nodes you know".
Also, what has LN got to do with DAGs? Are you even familiar with the concept of what DAGS are?
There's no limitation for channel routes to be acyclic in LN, so routing channels would form DGs rather than DAGs.
