A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
Bigger Bitcoin: Keep bitcoin in the hands of the people!
This subreddit is for discussion of removing the bitcoin blocksize cap. We support forking away from BitFury, BTCC, and Blockstream as they are part of a plan to hijack and subvert bitcoin into a bank-controlled settlement layer. Our goal is to preserve bitcoin as originally described in the Satoshi whitepaper.
Firstly I want to say sorry, I was wrong. When I first got into crypto I started learning about uasf, segwit, and so on. I thought I had it all figured out until I started to investigate the other side. Now for a simple way of putting it, I have come to a realization that bitcoin core developers were trying to improve a floppy disk, instead of just upgrading to an ssd hard drive. Which made no sense whatsoever to me. I had only realize this after segwit was actually activated and it did not reduce the fees/transaction time at all. To make it all worse the banning and censorship made them look sketchy as hell. Bitcoin is supposed to be a new currency that everyone can use with low fees/transaction time and the core team has forgotten all about that. I feel that I have now seen the hero become the villain. I don’t usually post stuff, but I felt I needed to say something. There are a lot of smart people out there and I’m sure that they will figure everything out like I have, even with the censorship, banning and all that. Thank god I converted all my btc to bch when cash was around $600 and never looked back. I feel like I am now a true bitcoin supporter and can't wait to see what the future holds for our little bch community! Edit: Wow you guys have a tipping bot over here. This community is like 100 times better than /r Bitcoin. Thanks a lot everyone, ill be sure to spread the word! Edit: I am stunned, did not expect to get this much attention. Thanks for all the tips and my first reddit gold ever! Love you guys!
Showerthought: Bitcoin Core supporters waste their energy attacking Bitcoin Cash because they can't put their effort into improving the ecosystem.
They can't work on merchant adoption because bitcoin core is a 'store of value' and there will be problems when fees go up. They can't work on LN adoption because it's not ready (though some are trying XD). No one can develop any applications for it because it's useless. Same can be said for LTC. The coins that are busy building don't have the time or energy to waste on bringing others down. Just keep working on Bitcoin Cash and adoption will spread.
"We should not change BTC to accommodate more users." - Current Bitcoin Core supporter and /r/Bitcoin moderator
Today I was reading the chat logs from when Peter R was booted from a Core Slack channel. I could hardly believe anyone involved with Bitcoin could actually think such a thing. This seemed almost as shocking as the Core supporters at a recent Silicon Valley Bitcoin meetup telling people that they should use credit cards instead of Bitcoin for payments. I'm more than a bit stunned that Bitcoin has been partially taken over by people who think:
Bitcoin shouldn't change to accommodate more users.
People should be using credit cards instead of Bitcoin.
Bitcoin Core supporters (e.g. Vortex) are delusional! BTC mempool has cleared b/c less people are using BTC.
I don't want to call out bs on just Vortex, there are many more people like Jameson lopp who are pushing the narrative that spamming of the network has stopped, and as a result there are almost zero unconfirmed BTC transactions in the mempool and low confirmation fees. However, this is not true, and I will use Vortex simply because i was too lazy to call everyone out. First of all, it is true - LN, segwit, batching, and less spamming on the network have all contributed to clearing out part of the mempool. But the main reason why the mempool has cleared is because less people are using BTC plain and simple. The Facts: 1) Here are charts on the number of transactions over time on BTC network taken from Vortex's twitter. As to why he was retweeting these charts, i have no clue because they simply make my point stronger: https://twitter.com/lopp/status/966377933051895808 https://twitter.com/bitcoin_bh/status/966693648841740294 Both charts show number of transactions have been decreasing steadily since December. 2) The price of bitcoin has also been decreasing since December. Simple economics shows us that if there were more ppl using BTC, more ppl would buy BTC; therefore, price would drive up. However, the very opposite has been happening. The demand for bitcoin has decreased, which is causing the price to go down. So Vortex keep trying to slander other ppl. This tweet is just filled with fud. We all know the truth man, your just making yourself look dumb. https://twitter.com/theonevortex/status/966686594542419969 🙌🏽
