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.
Trial Back on After Craig Wright Breaks Bitcoin Settlement Agreement
Australian-born technologist Craig Wright has attested that he cannot finance his court settlement negotiated with the Kleiman estate. According to a court document filed in the Southern District of Florida Oct. 30, Wright pulled out of the settlement agreement in which he would forfeit half his intellectual property and bitcoin mined prior to 2014. With the agreement broken, trial motions are now back on. The document was filed by Kleiman’s counsel to set a date to depose an out-of-state witness. Ira Kleiman brought the charges against Wright in 2018 on behalf of his deceased brother’s estate. Kleiman alleges Wright manipulated business documents, emails and other correspondence to defraud the estate. Wright was sanctioned in late August, after being found in contempt of court by Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart for failing to disclose a complete list of his bitcoin addresses, reportedly amounting to 1.1 million bitcoin. During the hearing, Wright claimed his bitcoin was inaccessible due to his former business partner David Kleiman’s death as well as a complicated encryption scheme. The arguments were found to be inconsistent and in bad faith. “These discussions began at Craig’s request and due to the fact that Craig represented he had the means to finance a settlement,” Velvel Freedman, member of the prosecution and partner at Roche Freedman, said in the filing. Wright allegedly reneged on the non-binding agreement “without notice.” Earlier, just days after the sanction was levied, Wright requested additional time to challenge the judge’s court order due to the approach of Hurricane Dorian. Kleiman is represented by Kyle Roche and Velvel Freedman of Roche Freedman LLP, while Wright is represented by Rivero Mestre LLP. The trial date is set for March 30, 2020.
We could see $100+ Litecoin if SegWit makes LTC the default payment layer to Bitcoin's settlement layer.
Even in /bitcoin there is now discussing whether Litecoin getting SegWit means that it will become the payment layer to Bitcoin's settlement layer. This is far bigger than most people realize. Imagine Litecoin becoming the 'cup of coffee' crypto to Litecoins Digital Gold! I am holding my Chickuns!! Now we need the community to REALLY step up and support, and use Litecoin services to show developers that there is an incentive to build on top of Litecoin/SegWit etc. KEEP THE MOMENTUM!! edit: Derped my subs. /bitcoin not /btc
Will Bitcoin's settlement time impact it's longevity?
Part of the allure of Bitcoin is it's digital money and can reach people outside the banking system. But with settlement times taking hours and Bitcoin no where near being able to process the number of transactions that Visa can, how can it ever replace transactions? The average person does, what 4 transactions per day in the current financial system, maybe 6? If Bitcoin users explode as some say and they do N number of transactions per day, how does this work with hours of waiting for a transaction? I noticed other cryptocurrencies have various ideas on this (some better than others) but what does Bitcoin plan to do about this time required for transaction settlement problem?
Bitcoin settlement time: An explanation for people who really don't get it
Visa takes from 24 hours (for debit) to 6 months (for credit) to settle. Visa supports instant verification, but that money can be "taken back" from the merchant at any time during the settlement period. This is called a "chargeback". In Bitcoin-speak it would be called a "double spend".
Instant verification is suitable for a coffee
Maybe it's OK for a dinner... but it depends what part of town you're in. In risky neighborhoods, many restaurants don't take Visa.
Visa cannot be used to buy expensive things like cars, houses and diamonds
Bitcoin's settlement increases in security over time. After a 5 seconds, you have more assurance than 1 second. After 10 minutes, you have more assurance . After 40-60 minutes, you have the equivalent of 6 months of Visa's "settlement". Bitcoin supports instant verification just like visa. Anyone can, at any time check to see if a transaction is valid - instantly. Just like Visa, that money can be "taken back" from the merchant at any time during the settlement period. This is roughly equivalent to a "chargeback". Currently Bitcoin chargebacks are far less likely than Visa chargebacks. Also, the longer you wait, the less likely a chargeback becomes.
This is suitable for a coffee. Much like a visa transaction.
In about 20 minutes, you have a level of settlement suitable for buying a fancy car. It would cost far more than a car to alter the blockchain after 2 confirmations. You cannot buy expensive things with Visa.
Bitcoin also supports a 20 second "very high likelihood verification", where money is "even harder" to take back
This is suitable for a dinner - even in a high risk neighborhood!
There are technologies, like green address, that support instant transactions, with a level of surity appropriate for buying a car, and with a level of convenience like Paypal.
