[doublepost=1559935243,1559934540][/doublepost]These individuals attempting to silence Craig now find themselves dealing with a monster forged of their own actions. When criminals choose to attack from the shadows and threaten family members and attempt to subdue people, don’t be surprised when the campaign is returned ten-fold. And in attaining legitimacy for his actions and his proofs, Craig is seeking the courts.

Wow, Can you imagine if all this is true? Mr Maxwell, deep in it from the beginning. Certainly explains a lot of loose ends and various peoples motivations. Are others at Blockstream also tainted?


"Mr Maxwell has been lying and making up false claims including submitting false evidence to cover his tracks.

Some of the things Mr Maxwell has been doing include:


  • facilitating terrorist funding;
  • aiding in the creation of a system designed to destroy evidence (including money-transfer evidence and funding sources);
  • creating systems including automated ransomware and the ability to stop tracking of payments;
  • infrastructure hacking and DDoS funding;
  • funding illegal activities including leaking data and payments from malware associated with such activity;
  • software that aids in the facilitation of cryptojacking;
  • adding in the creation of systems that are designed to enable funding that has the express purpose of evading sanctions;
  • creating systems to facilitate funding illicit groups (including child-porn rings);
  • aiding securities fraud;
  • facilitating and conspiracy to defraud; and
  • funding the illegal theft of state secrets.
Some of the systems developed by Mr Maxwell are already being used by the Islamic State.

......

I invite Mr Maxwell to sue me. It will save me the effort of filing against him. Don’t worry, it is planned, but we have so little time and so many people to bring to justice.

Don’t worry, Mr Maxwell, I’m not hiding any more. You’ll get your day in court and, at the end of all of it, a free room, a board, and a nice new orange suit."
 
If you zoom out to a 6m chart, the stats on p2sh.info must be very depressing for lightning fans. It stagnates since March, with a tendency to devolve. And this after so many articles and hypes...

If you look at defipulse.com you see a comparison of projects in which people lock in coins to create something new. Some month ago ln was on fourth place. But all few week a new Projekt comes, without coin desk articles all week, without being the future of cryptocurrency, and easily surpasses lightnings value.

So Craig has made all these allegations against the glorious GMax. Points that I think no one, not even Craig's detractors, will contest:
  • Craig has made very strong, specific allegations against the Greggles
  • Craig is based in the UK
  • The UK has very stringent libel laws
  • Craig is well aware of all the above
What do you conclude? My conclusions:
  • Craig has evidence for every single one of his claims
  • Greggie has serious problems brewing
  • I wouldn't want to be OneMegGreg
  • Fuck every one of the leeches that followed this asshole and screwed up the Bitcoin project because either Greg thought he could do it better (lmao) or, more likely, Greg simply couldn't contain the searing envy that what Craig created was so far beyond anything Greg could even have imagined that Greg just had to do his utmost to destroy it, no matter the consequences for arguably the greatest invention of the last century
If Greg contests, I will be buying kilos of popcorn. When Greg gets justice, a round for all the real Bitcoiners on this thread is on me. If you are anti-BSV then you fail that simple test.

And if Greg lets it stand, well then we all know the truth, and it only delays Greg's denouement a bit longer.

Life is good!

As someone who has absolutely zero belief that CSW is Satoshi, in a CSW vs NULLC battle, I'd be cheering for Craig, I have to admit. Satoshi's identity is a sideshow. Maxwell and friends have materially damaged something that was (and likely still is) a pivotal idea in the history of mankind.

It's yet to be shown if Craig will follow through though. His history of honoring promises is spotty at best. However, the libel suit against Peter MacCormack is proceeding so there is that at least.

I'm not sure. He said Gregs inventions are used by terrorists. Since Greg invented coin join and confidential transactions this is not a very debatable claim.

Yeah, a lot of these are not very interesting. I don't think there's much chance of Greg taking action against Craig anyway. Craig is a bit player relatively speaking and it's not to Greg's advantage to give him any validation by acknowledging him. It's like how Coke and Pepsi ads only compare themselves against Pepsi and Coke. Craig is the Tesco Value Cola.

Unless Craig actually initiates any action himself, it's just more blah blah blah.

lol, very late to the party. I tested it by myself, and it's always 10 minutes. I even increased time after last block to 795 seconds, and it's still, even a bit more than 10 min. I tried to test it with 1200 Sec, but now my server run out bandwidth ...

now I increased ellapsed time to 1500 seconds. Even after this the intervalls are on average longer than 10 minutes. This is quite funny. Now 2500 Seconds, and still average intervalls > 10 min. This is really funny.
Pretty much all of the normal assumptions regarding miner behavior and block intervals need to be thrown out the window as BSV scales.

The original models were built for when 100% of a block reward came from the coinbase reward and 0% from fees, but after BSV scales this will flip to ~0% from the coinbase and ~100% from fees.

This completely changes miner behavior because a block becomes incrementally more valuable the longer it has been since the last block. For example a block found after 1 minute will only be worth 10% of a normal block, one found after 5 minutes worth 50% of a normal block, one found after 10 minutes worth 100% of a normal block, and one found after 20 minutes worth 2 times the normal amount.

What we will see is most miners turning off after a block is found since it is not worth their electricity cost to continue mining, since a new block is now worth almost zero. Then over time more and more miners switch back on as the mempool fees build back up. We will see drastically more hash power activate as it gets closer to the 10 minute mark.

The end effect is the standard deviation of block arrival times will significantly reduce and most blocks will appear closer to the 10 minute mark than today. There still will be fast <1min blocks and slow >20min blocks, but their occurrence will be significantly lower than today.

What this means for the theories on miner competition and the prospects for selfish mining I think is not determined yet, but my suspicion is it will be harder to selfish mine and the network overall will become much more predictable than today.

I'll have a weissbier or that clear sake that tastes like sake (not that murky citrus stuff) (y)

C'mon. Are you kidding me?
Is the Scaling Test Network blah blah blah?
Is the mining blah blah blah?
Are the patents blah blah blah?
Is Nakasendo blah blah blah?
Are the CoinGeek conferences blah blah blah?
Are the unique ideas blah blah blah?
Is the investments in new companies blah blah blah?
Were the investments in BU's Gigablock Testnet Initiative blah blah blah?
Are all the talks at conferences for many years in many countries blah blah blah?
Were signing in front of BBC, Gavin Andresen and Jon Matonis blah blah blah?
Are all the articles on Medium.com and craigwright.net blah blah blah?
Is the video from Oxford Union linked above just blah blah blah?
Are the copyright registrations blah blah blah?
Are the lawsuits (many!) blah blah blah?

@Richy_T, you're like a spoiled brat craving instant gratification of a 100% link between CSV and SN on your computer screen. You're not going to get it. Do your homework, or get rekt. We're not waiting for you.

EDIT: I forgot, the Bitcoin SV client. That has proven itself on the mainnet. It doesn't "shit itself" at 20MB+ like Chris Pacia want you to believe. In fact, with their take on IBS, there will be no spikes on the network or in CPU when a block is found. Just a big, fat stream of data. Scaling like there's no tomorrow.

Yes, always just more blah blah blah. Initiated zero libel lawsuits, zero papers, zero patents, zero companies, zero programming, zero degrees. A veritable bonsai compared to you and me.
You sure burned this heretic.
[doublepost=1560125183][/doublepost]@Norway, second-hand cryptographic proofs, questionable copyright registrations and presentations at pay-for-play venues most certainly are blah blah blah.

I'm getting so tired of this refuting shit. But my quest for truth push me forward...o_O

second-hand cryptographic proofs
No, it's not "cryptographic proofs" of identity. Just proof of key. Proven to the "second hand" BBC + more. You may lack the creative mind to understand that there could be many reasons for SN to not sign in public even when extorted.

questionable copyright registrations
The copyright is registrated now. The copyright was earned when the paper and code was written. You can challenge the copyright if you want. But you are not going to do it. It was never meant as proof of anything. It's the legal ground work you do before you fight battles in court. The idea that the registration is proof of anything is a straw man. But it's also a clou to the observant because it's a costly signal. And anyone can "question" anything. The word "questionable" is just slander, not a logic point.

presentations at pay-for-play venues
I came up with the idea of inviting CSW/SN on BU's conference in Arnhem. The result speaks for itself. What is your point?

You picked 3 points from my list with weak arguments @Richy_T. Do you agree with the rest of my points? It's not just blah, blah, blah. It just isn't. You're wrong.
