I don't understand the purpose of this. Is it going to be posted somewhere to prove a point? I'm all for shows of support, but to what end does this aim for? For disclosure I have not pledged support (nor OpenBazaar/OB1) anywhere officially, but I'm asking for clarification.

It might be more effective to make a statement regarding increased collaboration and communication and that is something for which I and probably many others could get behind rather than support for status quo.

Ferdinando Ametrano +1 for a conservative approach in bitcoin core.

To scale up to VISA's 60,000 tps the block should be 20,000 times larger: 20GB. The increase in block size is not the solution: even combined with SW and networking improvement (IBLT, weak blocks, etc.) it could help with a factor of 10, maybe 100. A major breakthrough is needed, sidechain and/or lighting network possibly being the solution. Bitcoin might never be used as general payment system, but only as the digital gold of a non-censurable settlement system: as such it needs to be uncompromised in its decentralization and security.

Please note that I do not support statements of support and therefore will not sign them. For one of my previous statements on this, please see comment: bitcoin-dot-org/ (comment)

I concur with the comment made earlier in this thread by @hoffmabc - who stated in part, "It might be more effective to make a statement regarding increased collaboration and communication and that is something for which I and probably many others could get behind rather than support for status quo."

seweso commented Jan 22, 2016

I support Bitcoin Classic as well, which for me means "give approval, comfort, or encouragement to" & "be actively interested in and concerned for the success of". But doesn't mean I automatically agree with everything they do. I probably never completely align with any Bitcoin client. And that is Ok. Competition is good, and it is inevitable.

Therefor I will also support Bitcoin Core in the same vein.

I have confidence in the Bitcoin Core client and its developers. I trust them to make the best possible decisions given the information available and their technical experience with the system.


Jordan Tuwiner (Buy Bitcoin Worldwide)


I think @seweso said it well, in that I give encouragement, am actively interested and involved, and concerned for the success of Bitcoin through my support of Bitcoin Core and through other Bitcoin implementations which I also support such as Bitcoin Classic, Bitcoin Unlimited, etc; however it doesn't automatically mean that I will agree with everything they do.

I do think the privacy policy and cookie policy on your website are a little unnecessary.

Adrian Worutowicz (as individual)

Currently the disk space and CPU requirements allow running Bitcoin Core on home PC.
If the block size increases, so are those values. Who then will be able to run a full node ??

Beside, what really worries me is the centralisation of mining. Can anything be done to eliminate the industrial miners?

Slush (individual) - I like SegWit mostly because of improvements for hardware wallets.
SlushPool itself is agnostic, we plan to let users to decide for themselves by mining against various forks.
