Re: So who here is actually mining?

Glorious, I do not see in the whitepaper where it is stated the SPV node must download the full block chain and then discard that data except the block headers. That doesn't seem the take away from the following: A user only needs to keep a copy of the block headers of the longest proof-of-work chai...

Re: So who here is actually mining?

So then... question here. Why is it even possible not to run a full node? Is that just a concession made to help spread the adoption of the network? its an evolving and changing ecosystem with many people having different visions of how it looks. So... it depends on which crypto you're talking abou...

Re: So who here is actually mining?

Until it looks and acts like a properly-regulated financial market, it's just a toy upon which no one should spend any more than they're willing to lose. I'm using the word "mainstream" here in the context of cryptos, not finance at large. Sure, not a good idea to have in cryptos more tha...

Re: So who here is actually mining?

It was built into Bitcoin from the very beginning you turd. You know that the idea was never for every wallet to be a full node. You only present it as such so it fits your narrow arguments.

Re: So who here is actually mining?

You're describing if a person wants to run a full node. This isn't necessary and isn't what the great majority will do. Again, this is where you'll retreat to "but this is what's necessary to adhere to the fundamental principles of blah blah blah" even though that is all baggage you apply...

LOL you know I am not talking about Lambos or money dude, it's about your ego. You're doing the strawman decoy loop, once again. You know what my point was, hence you have to deflect using a decoy because that's easier on your ego.

Except opening my wallet and pulling out a dollar (or using my credit card, which is what I do almost always these days) takes seconds. And I really have to work hard to find someone that does not take credit cards these days (and those that don't readily take my dollars, even in other countries). ...

Re: So who here is actually mining?

What? Opening a wallet for Litecoin and being able to send and receive is quite literally a matter of a couple minutes, mostly all due to actual inputs required by the user. A whole day to sync? What? Anyway, just more anger. Just more projection. Just more laughter because its the only possible rea...

I don't agree with the premise of your last statement. I think the amount of necessary growth/improvement is very much acknowledged. For ICOs it seems hit or miss. For the general public it's almost entirely miss. When average everyday people are dropping 50k or more to set up mining farms based on...

Re: Headphone market for 2018: Hot mess

Sennheiser H6XX is $199 semi-regularly on Massdrop. Plenty of used HD600 and HD650 units out there too or good deals as the new but not really improved but slightly different models have come out. That is absolutely audiophile grade. Buy $100 to $400 worth of DAC and amp from say a company like Schi...

Re: Intel Processor bug incoming?

Most people will blame Microsoft, since the patch came from them. It's Microsoft's perpetual curse. Vendor does something undocumented or stupid, MS updates Windows, previously harmless but stupid thing breaks computer, user blames MS. It's a large part of why MS is so scared of changing anything. ...
