Mike, my first use of Bitcoin was in 2009. I wasn't vigorously active in the Bitcoin community until the beginning of 2011, indeed. But this is just a couple months after you (E.g. first code available for BitcoinJ was March 2011-- if you go by forums.bitcoin.org account times my account was created May 5th 2011 vs yours Dec 14th 2010; less than five months after yours). I was also working with related systems long before (E.g. RPOW in 2004). So give me a break, there is no rank to pull here.It was well .... understood that the users of Bitcoin would wish to protect its decenteralization by limiting the size of the chain to keep it verifyable on small devices.No it wasn't. That is something you invented yourself much later. "Small devices" isn't even defined anywhere, so there can't have been any such understanding.
The actual understanding was the opposite. Satoshi's words: [...] Then he went on to talk about Moore's law and streaming HD videos and the like. At no point did he ever talk about limiting the system for "small devices".
I have been both working on and using Bitcoin for longer than you have been around, Gregory. Please don't attempt to bullshit me about what the plan was. And stop obscuring what this is about. It's not some personality cult - the reason I keep beating you over the head with Satoshi's words is because it's that founding vision of the project that brought everyone together, and gave us all a shared goal.
Since when have we "campaigned" to "ignore problems" in the mining ecosystem? [...] Gregory, you are getting really crazy now. Stop it. The trend towards mining centralisation is not the fault of Gavin or myself, or anyone else.For example, you fought vigorously to get Bitcoin Core off Bitcoin.org, which would ensure that users were not previously equipped with a node suitable for operating mining (which then contributed substantially to the poor usability of solutions like P2Pool; with 98% of it's install time spent waiting for Bitcoin Core to sync).
And SPV is exactly what was always intended to be used. It's not something I "fixated" on, it's right there in the white paper. Satoshi even encouraged me to keep working on bitcoinj before he left!The fixation comment was a specific reply to your long list of the "only reasons" to run a full node, which seemed to be basically said that the only reason to run one was to act as a server for SPV clients; as it listed several points on that-- all three of the numbered points were "serving SPV wallets"-- and buried the rest. I'm sorry if I read too much into it, though it's also consistent with your prior responses that the non-scalability of Bitcoin as a whole is irrelevant due to SPV.
Look, it's clear you have decided that the way Bitcoin was meant to evolve isn't to your personal liking. That's fine. Go make an alt coin where your founding documents state that it's intended to always run on a 2015 Raspberry Pi, or whatever it is you mean by "small device". Remove SPV capability from the protocol so everyone has to fully validate. Make sure that's the understanding that everyone has from day one about what your alt coin is for. Then when someone says, gee, it'd be nice if we had some more capacity, you or someone else can go point at the announcement emails and say "no, GregCoin is meant to always be verifiable on small devices, that's our social contract and it's written into the consensus rules for that reason".Now that I've established the "small device" text you're railing on here actually came from the system's creator prior to your involvement, can I expect an admission that your own "personal liking" doesn't have special authority over the system? But I hope you don't create an altcoin: I think it's possible to find ways to accommodate people with very different preferences under one tent, and if we are to build and support a worldwide system we must find those ways rather than fragmenting the marketplace.
Below, we’ll examine some of the most important digital currencies other than bitcoin. First, though, a caveat: it is impossible for a list like this to be entirely comprehensive. The following email message allegedly from Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto appears in the blockchain. (It's almost certainly not really from him.) It seems to be referring to the removal of some Script opcodes from the Bitcoin server earlier and making the corresponding change to the Electrum server. My guess is this message is someone ... One of my colleagues applied results of js-linting, so there is a huge part of diff now where all that's actually changed on a line is just single quotes ' to double quotes " - var mod = require('... Bitcoin 0.1 actually did just compute the longest chain by number of blocks. Satoshi fixed this pretty early IIRC. I've heard this but I went through many of the early patches a while ago and didn't notice it. I'll have to look for it explicitly next time. Bitcoin Core should also work on most other Unix-like systems but is not as frequently tested on them. It is not recommended to use Bitcoin Core on unsupported systems. From Bitcoin Core 0.20.0 onwards, macOS versions earlier than 10.12 are no longer supported. Additionally, Bitcoin Core does not yet change appearance when macOS “dark mode ...
