@cypherdoc
I expect nodes to run closed source software in the future. This will be great for BU members after the organisation was turned into a business and the members became share holders. :sneaky:

Rewatching the video above, CSW's impassioned excoriation of altruism and socialism in the latter half is gold. Especially starting at around 26:32 when he rips into the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, responds to whether he deserves his billions from Bitcoin, explains the myths around "decentralization," and gives his controversial take on "devs gonna dev" (cued to timestamp):


Despite some mispoken zingers by Craig and ill-timed interruptions by the interviewer, it may be his best video. I wouldn't link it twice otherwise.

and then there is this
From Ethereum to BitcoinSV

Like lost souls in the night
And in the darkness
We're searching for the light

And in the morning
Like freshly fallen dew
Much like a moon's breath
I'm coming home to you

This journey's over
Another's just begun

Question for @solex, @theZerg and @Peter R:


Should the bitcoin protocol be ruled by groups of
politicians/technocrats (yes, you are all part of this)?

or

Should the bitcoin protocol be set in stone?
Click "like" if you want me to push further and raise the issue with a BUIP simply asking the elected officers this question.

I hope they all give good answers without any BUIP.

you gotta hand it to a Faketoshi who's willing to risk all this time, effort, reputation, personal money, OPM, patents, educational pursuits, hash, lawsuits, hate, papers, talks, formation of companies, sworn testimony to gvt agencies, etc only to have the real Satoshi come out tomorrow with a signed message from the genesis block key stating, "Craig S. Wright is not Satoshi. I am.", causing a thunderous BOOM with instantaneous decimation of all this.

unless...

@majamalu, brandishing one's academic title, i think, is already in poor form. but that is relatively independent of the assessment of viability of the project. the direction of this project, with the information i have today, makes more sense to me than that taken by the one we were collectively so excited about in august '17.

sure, trusting BSV/CSW development is a bit like walking up to the edge of a new huge inferno ...
Why would you trust? You could run your own node software. The protocol is clear and stable ..... so there should be multiple code implementations for nodes.

Why else do you need to "trust"?

Money and currency are weasel words. Years ago, I used the term money in an undifferentiated way. Today, depending on who I'm arguing with, I differentiate the term.
