  • I think this is the most open minded subreddit, so let me ask my question here. Why we should insist on proof of work when we have proof of stake? | 2021-04-08
    PoW is better to resist censorship. In PoW systems, if someone is censoring your chain (e.g. miners coopted by governements), you can bring more hash power to overpower them and mine the censored transactions. In PoS it's game over.

    Lol no. Overcoming censorship is not possible in a PoS system, as the censor has acquired majority stake and cannot be unseated. As such PoS systems are not censorship-resistant
  • Imagine being a Bitcoin Cash Maximalist 😂😂😂
    Your reasoning is what enable Bitcoin to be captured. If you define Bitcoin as a set of principles described in the white paper, you do not have this problem any more. BTC is Bitcoin, BCH is Bitcoin too. BTC is the main one and that's why we call simply call it Bitcoin, but it is only a version of Bitcoin. There is no "real" Bitcoin.
  • bitusher's dense and concise criticism of Monero | 2021-03-23
    3a) Imhv, the most important aspect in this debate is that Monero cannot be censored while BTC could be censored. What happens then? Here is where the argument gets interesting. BTC was created for some reasons, one of the most important being able to resist government control. This has been referred to as "Axiom of (state) Resistance". Instead of crypto-tribalism just point new-comers to DYR, and provide something worth reading.

    Some people even argue that bitcoin was designed to be a "black market money" and I tend to agree:

  • Tesla buys $1.5B BTC, may accept payments in future | 2021-02-08
    Eric Voskuil writes about the "energy" argument. All moneys can be compared on energy level, and it is important to note not to look at energy solely, but also labor, land, services, energy, hardware, and other resources needed to keep a system running. If you are comparing the coin to fiat, take into account the military industrial complex, the cost of physical bank branches, physical issue, the cost of seignorage on the money holder (i.e. gain of energy for those close to the printing press vs. loss of energy for existing holders).

    If you rationally examine, the money holder will select the money with the least energy waste. All moneys not held imply a higher amount of energy inefficiency. This is why one may hold the USD, as opposed to the Turkish Lira. This is why one may hold btc, as opposed to the USD.

    If you want to investigate a bit more in depth, cryptoeconomics Proof of Work fallacy is a great resource by Eric Voskuil.

  • I don't think bitcoin could be successful as it is currently designed. But, could a better crypto leach off it without much effort? | 2021-02-04
