In addition to all the other reasons already listed... Bitcoin is produced on a fairly predictable schedule going forward, marked by halving, etc. Gold is produced by mining it. So if some new source of gold comes on the market, it could drive it down. Imagine a 50 or a 100 years from now, some asteroid mining operation hauls back the freaking motherload and depresses the prices of gold. Or if you'd rather a historical analogy: Mansa Musa rolling in for Hajj and spending or giving away so much gold it actually drove down the the market price for gold. Bitcoin? TIK TOK, NEXT BLOCK!

But what you don't seem to realise is "Yes 80% of the validator do not build block with transaction related Tornado Cash" (Mostly because they all use the same Bot, initially designed to help validator make more money, but that is OFAC Compliant) That is true, and i do not refute this affirmation AT ALL. And i see there could be a risk in that. BUT, NONETHELESS, there are still validator which do include those transaction, even if they are a minority. THEY ARE STILL CHOSEN AS VALIDATOR and do ADD BLOCK WITH TORNADO CASH TX INSIDE THE BLOCKCHAIN. Those transaction STILL END UP BEING INSCRIBED IN THE BLOCKCHAIN. So no they are not "censored by the network" it juste mathematically take them longer to be inscribed because most of the validator does not incluse them on their block but they Will Always bé inscribed as long as 1 validator put them in the block they validate and the other validator are not forking the chain every 10s by choosing to never build New block on top of the block containing tornado cash transaction. And bout the 80% of hashrate being fucking expensive. Yes i know the sum.at play. But the fact is also that 51% of the Hashrate Is actually being detained by 6 compagnies. Capitalism being capitalism, they have no fucking interest to 51% attack the BTC blockchain. Economical reward are not worth the cost. But 6 CEO could theoratically sit down at a table and décide to 51% attack the BTC blockchain because they have this hashrate

In bitcoin "time" doesn't really exist in the same sense as you might think as the bitcoin network doesn't rely on an outside oracle to determine the time and doesn't keep a time consensus with "the real world" instead it is it's own clock, a distributed timestamp server where everyone HAS to agree on the order blocks and transactions occurred. >In this paper, we propose a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer distrib­uted timestamp server to generate compu­ta­tional proof of the chrono­log­ical order of transactions - Satoshi Nakamoto (2009) Miners are required to add their own timestamps to the blocks they're building but it leaves the door open for potential manipulation - If miners say the blocks took longer on average than it did then the difficulty would adjust downwards and their profitability would go up. There are two rules in place with regards to how to "timestamp" blocks to prevent this being an issue: >Median Past Time (MPT) Rule – The timestamp must be further forwards than the median of the last eleven blocks. The median of eleven blocks implies six blocks could be re-organised and time would still not move backwards, which one can argue is reasonably consistent with the example, provided in Meni Rosenfeld’s 2012 paper, that six confirmations are necessary to decrease the probability of success below 0.1%, for an attacker with 10% of the network hashrate. >Future Block Time Rule – The timestamp cannot be more than 2 hours in the future based on the MAX_FUTURE_BLOCK_TIME constant, relative to the median time from the node’s peers. The maximum allowed gap between the time provided by the nodes and the local system clock is 90 minutes, another safeguard. It should be noted that unlike the MPT rule above, this is not a full consensus rule. Blocks with a timestamp too far in the future are not invalid, they can become valid as time moves forwards. https://blog.bitmex.com/bitcoins-block-timestamp-protection-rules/ So long as the timestamps abide by these rules the network will keep "time" and the individual timestamps don't really matter.

Keeping scale in mind, this isn't going to compete with an S19, it would be for the casual miner. This would be analogous to the past when a adding your GPU to a pool was competitive. >you gotta pay for the card, and the energy bill used by the card to hash.

> wouldn’t most nodes just refuse to enter the double-spend into the mempool The mempool is not relevant to consensus, nor is it relevant to miner double-spending Even in normal mining, a miner can build his candidate block from any source of valid transactions. He doesn't have to use his mempool. The mempool is, for obvious reasons, the best source of **unconfirmed** transactions An attacker will definitely not use a mempool for his double-spend. He will construct his own spending transaction and send it to the node network to be mined via the winning miner's mempool. When replacing the transaction with a send-to-self transaction, he includes the replacement transaction directly in his block directly. This transaction does not need to be seen by other nodes The node network follows the longest chain. A successful 51% attack will produce a longer chain than the regular miners. Every node in the node network will reorg its tip to follow the longer chain. The node network **does not judge** the replacement transaction as a double-spend. During the tip reorg, the original transaction disappears, as if it never existed --- Some extra background ... Chain tip reorgs happen whenever there is a tied mining race. This is not an attack, It is a normal occurrence - about 10 times per year. A node is not aware of a tied mining race until the next block arrives. If the new block does not follow the node's previous block (PREV_BLOCK_HASH does not match), then the node reorgs its tip to follow the longer chain A 51% attack forges a tied mining race, takes advantage of the nodes' consensus rule of always following the longest chain. A node never judges fraud or dishonesty. It prevents double-spending being recorded on the chain by choosing the longest chain https://www.metzdowd.com/pipermail/cryptography/2008-November/014832.html https://www.metzdowd.com/pipermail/cryptography/2008-November/014843.html https://www.metzdowd.com/pipermail/cryptography/2008-November/014858.html > The transaction in whichever branch ends up getting ahead becomes the valid one, the other is invalid. If someone tries to double spend like that, one and only one spend will always become valid, the others invalid > Receivers of transactions will normally need to hold transactions for perhaps an hour or more to allow time for this kind of possibility to be resolved > It is strictly necessary that the longest chain is always considered the valid one > When there are multiple double-spent versions of the same transaction, one and only one will become valid > The guy who received the double-spend that became invalid never thought he had it in the first place > We're not "on the lookout" for double spends to sound the alarm and catch the cheater. We merely adjudicate which one of the spends is valid >

"This is reply from founder of Saito. Also if you have any queries you can directly ping him too he is very chill and he is the only founder in space of major L1 which addresses messages." A --> B --> C A ---> B ---> B2 ---> C as transactions propagate deeper into the network, the amount of "power" they provide for producing blocks falls. the same transaction is worth less for C than B, and less for B than A. so unless B or C are attacking the network (by spending their own money) A will produce blocks at 2x the speed of B. when A puts transactions into blocks, they will have shorter routing paths and thus be smaller transactions so I believe the first misunderstand of the person asking you this question is the assumption that we WANT or INCENTIVIZE random routing paths in the P2P network. we don't. we want shortly and highly efficient routing paths. we want to incentivize block producers to migrate into the P2P network and get as close to users as possible. now look at these two transactions A --> B --> C A ---> B ---> B2 ---> C they are the same transaction. the difference is that when the 2nd transaction arrives at C it already has the first in its mempool will C add the 2nd version? tx1 has 2 hops tx2 has 3 hops but the core tx is the same. tx1 is way better for the block producer when they get tx2, they'll delete it so node B2 is not going to get paid very much, because their transactions will rarely go into the blockchain but that's what we want, since they're not contributing real value if B and C can avoid them but that's what we want, since they're not contributing real value if B and C can avoid them they are consuming bandwidth without contributing value. technically they are a parasite. > the issue i have with this is that the path is selected using some decentralized source of randomness so that nodes on the path are not arbitrary but random. so this quote shows a misunderstanding the path that wins isn't random the lottery selects the winner from the txs that ARE included. but the block producers want to put in the TXS that give them the greatest chance of winning, they they are biased towards shorter and more efficient routing paths everyone else on the routing path also hates B2. a longer routing path makes everyone else less profitable and makes it less like that THEY get paid because it means their TXS are less likely to create a block the person you are talking to seems to think the lottery picks a random routing node in the network. it doesn't. it picks a random routing node FROM THE NODES IN THE ROUTING PATHS OF THE TXS THAT ARE IN THE BLOCK. block producers cut TXS from inefficient paths if they have better / shorter / more efficient paths

My understanding differs from the /u/nullc comment, so it could be wrong. This is based on my memory of reading snippets of Core source code about 2 years ago Also, I'm assuming the question is about processing of recently mined blocks, not about the initial block download. I suspect those cases have different answers. The question can be interpreted either way. Please clarify I think the node accepts the block as an orphan and stores it until the missing block is sent, doesn't ask for the missing block In a different case - a chain tip fork caused by a tied mining race - a node recognizes that it might have a stale chain tip when the next block's PREV_BLOCK_HASH doesn't match, preventing the new block from extending the chain. In this case, the node asks another node (or other nodes) to send the block which has a hash matching PREV_BLOCK_HASH of the new block. If that turns out to be the valid longest chain, the previous block becomes stale > signatures They are not directly important for extending the chain. They are important for validating the block at transaction level. SegWit transactions do have signatures, and they are stored in the blockchain

These things tie together * tied mining race * chain tip reorg * 51% attack The reality of network latency creates approximately 10 tied mining races per year. A tied mining race creates forked chain tips. An individual node is unaware of a fork until the next block is mined, and it follows (via PREV_BLOCK_HASH) a chain which is different to the node's current chain. To reorg, the node requests the previous block which matches PREV_BLOCK_HASH and makes the fork block stale In a 51% attack, a miner with sufficient hash power can forge a tied mining race and use the fork to double-spend Any chain tip fork is an opportunity to double-spend. Normally, the opportunity is impossible to exploit because a tied mining race is unpredictable Occasionally, a tip fork (tied mining race) can be two blocks deep. Occasionally, a node might reorg and follow a chain which is then (next block) found to be shorter. Then it needs to re-reorg. To cover these possibilities, safe confirmation advice recommends waiting 6 blocks. In 99% of tied mining races, 2 confirmations is enough. In an extreme 2-block tip which is reorganized and re-reorganized, waiting 4 blocks is sufficient Even though very, very few chain tip reorgs are deeper than 2 blocks, there is no defined limit to the depth of a reorg. Your hypothetical network outage can be handled by an arbitrarily deep chain tip reorg In 51% attacks on Bitcoin-like blockchains, the attacker mined in parallel for 2 hours, and then released 2 hours of blocks to the node network. This method allows an attacker to circumvent the usual 6-block confirmation rule, but the experience also motivated exchanges (the double-spend victims) to dynamically calculate confirmation delays according to each crpyotcurrency's attack risk In your hypothetical, mals who are aware of a chain fork caused by a network outage can try to exploit the outage by double-spending. The risk is mitigated by the fact that their likely victims (coin-to-coin exchanges) should be aware of the chain fork, and wary of double-spend possibility. Also, to double spend, the attacker needs to be on the slow mining side of the outage, which may not mine enough blocks to pull off the heist

While I think owning BTC is better than owning Microstrategy stock, what you say is not true, neither bound to happen. Microstrategy software business has been long time dwarfed by its BTC bet. The company would never be able to repay its debt and obligations if it only had to rely on the FCF generated by the business. In other words, the course set by Saylor is not reversible. That’s also why he gave up the CEO role and became chairman to focus on what actually matters to the company at this point - its BTC bet. If Saylor dies, the board would never appoint a new CEO that does not believe in BTC. It is actually very likely that at some point in the future saylor himself will decide to sell / spin-off the legacy software business and retain only its BTC bet as ‘core’ to the new company. It’s similar to what happened with a failing Yahoo and its stake in Alibaba a few years ago. Yahoo ended up being sold to MSFG and the Alibaba stake split to create value for shareholders. Even if an anti-BTC CEO comes around (impossible, but likely they will split the non BTC business, as I said before), he/she will not just make all BTC that microstrategy owns disappear. Whatever strategy it’s chosen to get out the BTC bet, the stock is and will be forever linked to BTC that the company owns. Even if as you say they liquidate all BTC they own, the money will be distributed a way or another to shareholders, so you won’t just lose your investment. It’s actually likely that any maunever to split BTC from Microstrategy will be positively received by markets. This is different than Tesla (or BLOCK), since those companies have large core businesses that have nothing to do with BTC, even if they own / have owned some. So, no, you are not subject to this kind of risk by owning Microstrategy. Personally I prefer Microstrategy than spot ETFs that tend to be very expensive. But again, nothing beats the real thing.

The people who's funds are deposited into the Tornado pool are the ones ~~writing to the blockchain~~ writing to a brand new blockchain for those coins (because the blockchain history of those coins has been mixed up).

Post is by: Awhodothey and the url/text [ ](https://goo.gl/GP6ppk)is: /r/CryptoCurrency/comments/s7pjy5/12_reasons_cardano_cant_scale_in_2022/ This post is a reality check on IOHK's latest investor disinformation campaign: https://iohk.io/en/blog/posts/2022/01/14/how-we-re-scaling-cardano-in-2022/ Tldr: It's great to see they are starting to acknowledge Cardano's scalability problem, or at least pumping the brakes on their unsubstantiated claims of having solved the trilemma. For the first time, 2021 saw the Cardano community publicly acknowledge some of the limitations of their design that critics have pointed out for years. We've come a long way since IOHK was still pretending this was almost ready to go: https://nitter.net/iohk_charles/status/1287481374224420864 **1. BLOCK SIZE/ 2. MEMORY/ 3. STORAGE INCREASES** The bigger the blocks, the higher the memory, and the more storage- the faster the chain. Basically every chain that isn't already run on super computers can increase blocksizes, memory or storage requirements if they are OK with more centralization and less stability. That's the trade off. That's true for Cardano, and it's true for every other chain. But how much room does Cardano have to increase parameters? Cardano already has pretty much the same blocksize as Ethereum (72Kb vs ETH's average of 80Kb) and dramatic increases in blocksize will decrease the number of people who can afford to run nodes, and it also makes the network more likely to fork. The theoretical max limit is 28x the current blocksize, but that is almost certainly not practically possible, and no one supports increasing it to even half of that (which is about the most that has ever been tested), because increasing the blocksize isn't free. How critical is it for Cardano to maintain as small of blocksizes as possible? Critical enough that the plan is to only increase in 12.5% intervals when absolutely necessary. The fact that anyone is at all hesitant to increase Cardano's limit when it's 72kb tells you that this isn't a free trade. There is no plan to ever reach max parameters. Edit: they can actually increase the block size OR decrease the block time, but as they both directly factor into block propagation times, either choice produces the same throughput limit. The decision has more to do with which hardware requirements you want to increase. https://np.reddit.com/r/cardano/comments/pf25jk/without_hydra_cardano_probably_wont_be_faster/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share What makes Cardano fundamentally slower than every other chain is how bloated their tx sizes are. We've all heard the sales pitch "And Cardano has native tokens that don't need smart contracts!," but what you didn't get told is that native UTXO txs on Cardano are an average of 500 bytes WITHOUT smart contracts. And that a basic, native tx is larger than the average Ethereum tx WITH smart contracts. And no, the "And Cardano can combine 20 txs into 1 !" meme doesn't make any difference. The size and speed of each block is all the same regardless of whether you call it 1 tx or 20tx's. The only thing combining txs does is make Cardano significantly cheaper to DDOS. https://messari.io/asset/ethereum/metrics/network-activity Native Cardano UTXOs are bigger than the average Ethereum tx, and Plutus smart contracts txs are even bigger that - a lot bigger- like 40x the size of Ethereum smart contracts: **Sundaeswap determined that the Cardano network was their primary bottle neck and measured Cardano's real-world throughput for their smart contracts to be 0.15 TPS.** That's 47x slower than a native UTXO on Cardano, 100x slower than an Ethereum tx, and 66,000x slower than a Cosmos and Terra tx. 0.15 TPS is a max of 12,960 txs per day, under ideal conditions... on the entire Cardano chain. https://sundaeswap-finance.medium.com/expectations-congestion-mainnet-launch-e9da5abfd819 Edit: Sunday swaps medium posts are all offline now. https://web.archive.org/web/20220117005224/https://sundaeswap-finance.medium.com/expectations-congestion-mainnet-launch-e9da5abfd819 Cardano's problem is much bigger than anything that can be fixed with a 2x parameter adjustment. Max parameters will never be implemented, and even then, they would still leave Cardano more than 3x slower than the second slowest L1 chain, Ethereum. **4. Pipe Lining and 5. Input Endorsers** ...are great ideas. So why are these still in the research phase? They're promising to deliver a plan that hasn't even been designed yet. Let's assume these get designed and developed in 2022. Then Cardano is in the ballpark of Ethereum L1's low tps and high congestion. **6. Plutus Script Enhancements** These are basic functions (that are still in the research phase because of how they conflict with provability in Hydra). Plutus should not even have been released before they developed reference and data inputs. That was an obvious problem, and it was a huge mistake that will create chaos and disappointment. Edit: putting something as basic and critical as reference inputs on the roadmap for 9 months after smart contracts are released is the definition of "move fast and break things." Also, nobody has explained how they solved the conflict with provability. They didn't leave it out of Plutus because it's a minor problem: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3dc6zG9EjWE&t=37m30s Cardano will alway have much larger txs than non-UTXO chains because native UTXOs are so large. On top of that, Plutus' smart contract implementation is extremely bloated and inefficient. The problem is that Cardano's UTXO model can't store smart contracts on-chain. So instead of calling an on-chain smart contract, every Cardano SC tx must include the SC script in every tx, because there is no on-chain SC that can simply be referenced again and again. This makes every Cardano smart contract very large. Cardano currently does native asset txs (without smart contracts) at 7 TPS, and that's the theoretical minimum SC size, if they figure out how to compress SCs 47x. And that means that Cardano SCs will always be at least twice as slow as Ethereum L1's unbearably slow 15 TPS, for the same blocksize. Now is a good time to point out that it's clear from their rhetorical focus of comparing their chain to the next slowest chain, that Cardano holders have no idea how slow Ethereum is. Up to this point in time, almost all of Cardano's txs have been basic UTXO's that haven't filled up blocks, because they are a small fraction of the size of smart contracts. Four months after going live, no one really uses smart contracts on Cardano yet. Muesliswap doesn't even have $100 Million in TVL (and doesn't have $5M in liquidity to other tokens). Small NFT drops did bring the network to a crawl, but we haven't seen speeds across the whole network change dramatically like they will when Sundaeswap launches a real DEX and much bigger txs flood the chain Thursday. And catching up to Ethereum L1 will not be good enough. Ethereum has L2s already, and nobody would use Eth L1 if it went live for the first time today. Ethereum has the first mover advantage of having all the liquidity. Whales don't care about a $200 fee, they care about liquidity. They need to move in and out of large positions quickly with as little price impact and slippage as possible. **7. Node Enhancements** This is not a scaling solution. Yes, fix your bugs and optimize your code. No other chain thinks a node update is a "scaling solution." This is ridiculous. Let me say this again: Cardano is currently 66,000x slower than Cosmos and Terra. **8. Side-chains** Great idea. But Cardano doesn't have any decentralized side-chains, and they didn't even get serious about funding any until late last summer. Proper sidechains are the real solution. Milkomeda is on the right track with their M1 sidechain. It's an accounts model Solidity EVM sidechain that has 32 permissioned nodes and uses slashing. Congratulations on abandoning all of your stated goals, and rushing to produce something usable. We waited six years so Catalyst could fund BSC 2.0. https://dcspark.gitbook.io/milkomeda/our-solution-1/the-m-1-sidechain **9. Hydra** A comprehensive plan for interhead Hydra implementation that approaches anything close to a generalized L2 has yet to be described, let alone developed. We're still waiting for a basic description of how isomorphic state channels will ever scale dApps or have any use between untrusted parties. Hydra's 2022 release schedule is for payment channels between trusted parties. Yes, it will be able to handle smart contracts, but not any smart contracts that dApps use. Hydra heads have to be closed every time a party joins or leaves, and they have no known application for dApps. Hydra is really irrelevant, because native UTXO transfers aren't the problem right now. https://np.reddit.com/r/cardano/comments/s18wie/should_cardano_be_prepared_to_abandon_hydra/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share **10. Off-chain computing** >"Transactions occur outside of the blockchain itself, yet can offer fast, cheap transactions via a trust model." Brilliant. This is a creative solution. Off-chain **trusted** computations. *Finally something that makes sense.* Yes, Cardano users should definitely do their computations somewhere they trust, off-chain... Muhammad Fucking Christ. Let me suggest they do their computations on one of the 79 other L1 blockchains. Edit: there's a massive difference between off-chain to a trusted party and off-chain to decentralized, trustless rollup or side chain. They are not remotely the same. That's why Sundaeswap had to come up with the convoluted scooper model and Maladex wrote a book detailing their experimental solution to countering the specific vulnerabilities of off-chain code (some of which on-chain verification will never detect). In the YouTube link above, Sebastien from DC Spark says Cardano is years away from having rollups. **11.

>*I said earlier it is currently overkill already. It is based on a budget system setup in 2009, and it was pretty conservative towards security.* > >How much less secure can it get before its a serious security issue? 2x? 10x? 20x? If you know its already over-budget for what it needs you should be able to put a ballpark figure on what it needs. Unless that would make Bitcoin either look too insecure if it was a low number, or too inefficient if it was a high number. In which case I fully understand that you don't want to say. I pretty much said as much when I said I don't see a problem for decades. * The hashing power has nothing to do with custodial control of tokens, all that breaking the hashing power does is allow for censorship and dominance of the rewards. * If Bitcoin is secure for say, 30 years, this would imply we have an excess of security in the order of four halvings, or 16x + * And over 30 years the budget for Bitcoin as a ratio of the value it protects will go down by more than a factor of 16x * Banks will not reduce their carbon footprint over the next 30 years by anything much at all. At least they have not released a plan to do so. >*Why? The real question is if Bitcoin has the ability to adjust if it is needed. And I'd say ,"yes it can".* > >So we can just re-institute block rewards if the security budget gets too low? > >What happened to the selling point of scarce, sound, hard, money of only 21,000,000 coins ever (less including lost coins!)? I guess they forgot to mention "unless the security model turns out to be unsustainable, in which case forget that part, we can change the supply rate to whatever we want later" Bitcoin in the end is a system maintained by people. I do not believe Bitcoin will fail in 30 years or 60 years even without any major change to rewards given for mining. Bitcoin has the advantage of spreading its control over many different people and total transparency and incentives spread out over many, many parties. >If you end up with an inflationary currency primarily traded through centralized financial institutions you've gone to a lot of effort to replicate something that will be fairly indistinguishable from CBDCs that won't have to waste resources on PoW, aside from the ideological selling point of "decentralization" which no one actually gives a fuck about as evidenced by the number of centralized coins in the top 10. 2 stable coins and Ripple? Number 3, 5, and 7? Combined are not worth more than Ethereum, much less Bitcoin. What is your point? How did we get here when we were talking about the efficiency of Bitcoin and the value of mining? >*Uhhh..... Where in the world did you get that idea? There was hardly any transactions on Bitcoin 12 years ago. I mean, less than 5 transactions per day. Peak transactions on chain was in 2017, but nothing has changed as far as capacity. The amount of value moved on chain continues to grow.* > >Just because not many people used Bitcoin back then doesn't mean the capacity wasn't higher. If a bus has 2 passengers in it, and a car has 3 passengers in it, does that mean the car can hold more people than the bus? > >Bitcoin didn't have a blocksize limit until 2010, and it was kept quiet until 2013, since it was implemented as an anti-spam measure. As always it defends attacks by making it more expensive to use. It's crazy anyone would claim its become more cost efficient over time when the entire security design is for it to become more expensive to use as it scales. Only. If. You. Only. Count. A. Subset. Of. Bitcoin. Transactions. If you count *every way* two people can exchange Bitcoin, Bitcoin has no limits and has vastly greater capacity today than any time in history, and less capacity than it will have in a year. And the year after that. And the year after that. Your whole argument amounts to my claim I am taller than my brother.... If you don't count his legs. Sorry, your google skills are great, but your understanding and knowledge of technology are lacking. I'll leave the change in Bitcoin that was "kept quiet until 2013" ... factually not true, but meh. Totally beside any point other than you are in an argument rather than in a discussion where we might both learn from each other. Anyway, for your enjoyment: >On the public repository, in main.c, on Jul 14, 2010, Satoshi changed: > >**static const unsigned int MAX\_SIZE = 0x02000000;** > >to > >**static const unsigned int MAX\_BLOCK\_SIZE = 1000000;** Wow.

Can anyone clarify something tax related having to do with crypto. Say you sell $300 dollars worth of crypto at a cost basis of $100, for a gain of $200 dollars. Obviously the $200 dollars is taxable income, *but is that sale of $300 all considered income*? If the $100 dollars I used to buy the crypto came from a different income stream, how is it now *also* property income? I ask because on HR BLOCK, they seem to consider the *total* for the sale as income, and not just the capital gain. This is problematic if you would otherwise qualify for certain insurance benefits if your income weren’t to go over the limit for eligibility. Any insight would be appreciated.

In centralized payment systems, the gateway becomes gatekeeper - decides which transactions and participants are allowed or banned - because the system is centralized The purpose of Bitcoin is a payment system with no gatekeeper. Decentralization excludes gatekeepers Bitcoin is a decentralized node network. Every node has its own copy of the Bitcoin blockchain. Every Bitcoin node checks every new block, and all the transactions in the block **after the block is mined**. This is Bitcoin consensus Does the miner check all the transactions in the block? He doesn't have to. But if his block (or any of the block's transactions) has errors, the node network rejects the block. The sensible miner checks his block, to avoid wasting electricity mining a block which has errors. This is the miner's choice. It is not consensus Before mining, new unconfirmed transactions are propagated around the node network. Most nodes check transactions at this point. They don't have to. This checking is policy, not consensus > Many resources say that the double-spending problem is solved by the fact that the network uses the longest chain But you don't bother to link any of these "resources" in your post. It is a convenient shorthand to conflate these two things, as a cheap explanation of something more complicated. Whoever writes those statements is appeasing their readers' desire for simplicity, assumes all the readers are stupid, willing to accept inaccuracy The double spending problem is solved by the spending mechanism. Bitcoin spends coins. A coin can only be spent once, can only be spent completely. No partial spends. Bitcoin does not have accounts, does not spend from account balances or from wallet balances > couldn't you include two transactions in one block and therefore double spending? A miner could. Then he wins the mining race, sends his winning block to his neighbor nodes. Each node checks all the transactions, discovers two transactions spending the same coin, rejects the entire block. Then those few nodes which received that block from that miner do not propagate the block to their neighbor nodes. The block no longer exists > longest chain The 10-minute block interval is long enough for almost every mining race to have a single winner. Occasionally (less than once per month) two miners win the race at almost the same time. The world-wide nature of the node network, combined with normal network latency, allows those two blocks to propagate into different sets of nodes in the node network. This is a temporary chain fork, one block deep. Both forks are the same length. Each node is independent of all other nodes. So, every node behaves as if it has the correct chain. When the next block is mined, it extends the fork defined by the linking hash (PREV_BLOCK_HASH) in the new block's header. Now, one fork is longer. The nodes on the other fork will detect that PREV_BLOCK_HASH in the new block does not match the tip of their chain. They will ask their neighbors to send the missing previous block, and will reorg their chain tip by discarding the now-stale block You can see that double spending prevention is not directly related to resolving temporary chain forks (following the longest chain). But there is a possibility that the two different chain tip blocks had two different transactions spending the same coin. If a merchant's node receives the shorter-chain tip block, he may believe he has been paid. When that block is replaced and becomes stale, he will discover that he wasn't paid. This is the reason that merchants are advised to wait up to 6 confirmations. The longest chain mechanism chooses which transaction is valid. The consensus validation mechanism prevents double spending To reemphasize ... The consensus mechanism secures the blockchain. Checking block validity and transaction validity **after mining** is the only safe way to ensure that all 50,000 or more nodes have the same transaction history. Nodes do not trust pre-mining transaction verification (policy). Nodes do not trust miners. Also, nodes do not trust nodes. When a node validates a block and propagates the block to its neighbor nodes, every node repeats the consensus validation. Every node operates independently, proving that the new block is valid before adding it to its own blockchain

Post is by: Awhodothey and the url/text [ ](https://goo.gl/GP6ppk)is: /r/CryptoCurrency/comments/s7pjy5/12_reasons_cardano_cant_scale_in_2022/ This post is a reality check on IOHK's latest investor disinformation campaign: https://iohk.io/en/blog/posts/2022/01/14/how-we-re-scaling-cardano-in-2022/ It's great to see they are starting to acknowledge Cardano's scalability problem, or at least pumping the brakes on their unsubstantiated claims of having solved the trilemma. For the first time, 2021 saw the Cardano community publicly acknowledge some of the limitations of their design that critics have pointed out for years. We've come a long way since IOHK was still pretending this was almost ready to go: https://nitter.net/iohk_charles/status/1287481374224420864 **1. BLOCK SIZE/ 2. MEMORY/ 3. STORAGE INCREASES** The bigger the blocks, the higher the memory, and the more storage- the faster the chain. Basically every chain that isn't already run on super computers can increase blocksizes, memory or storage requirements if they are OK with more centralization and less stability. That's the trade off. That's true for Cardano, and it's true for every other chain. But how much room does Cardano have to increase parameters? Cardano already has pretty much the same blocksize as Ethereum (72Kb vs ETH's average of 80Kb) and dramatic increases in blocksize will decrease the number of people who can afford to run nodes, and it also makes the network more likely to fork. The theoretical max limit is 28x the current blocksize, but that is almost certainly not practically possible, and no one supports increasing it to even half of that (which is about the most that has ever been tested), because increasing the blocksize isn't free. How critical is it for Cardano to maintain as small of blocksizes as possible? Critical enough that the plan is to only increase in 12.5% intervals when absolutely necessary. The fact that anyone is at all hesitant to increase Cardano's limit when it's 72kb tells you that this isn't a free trade. There is no plan to ever reach max parameters. https://np.reddit.com/r/cardano/comments/pf25jk/without_hydra_cardano_probably_wont_be_faster/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share What makes Cardano fundamentally slower than every other chain is how bloated their tx sizes are. We've all heard the sales pitch "And Cardano has native tokens that don't need smart contracts!," but what you didn't get told is that native UTXO txs on Cardano are an average of 500 bytes WITHOUT smart contracts. And that a basic, native tx is larger than the average Ethereum tx WITH smart contracts. And no, the "And Cardano can combine 20 txs into 1 !" meme doesn't make any difference. The size and speed of each block is all the same regardless of whether you call it 1 tx or 20tx's. The only thing combining txs does is make Cardano significantly cheaper to DDOS. https://messari.io/asset/ethereum/metrics/network-activity Native Cardano UTXOs are bigger than the average Ethereum tx, and Plutus smart contracts txs are even bigger that - a lot bigger- like 40x the size of Ethereum smart contracts: **Sundaeswap determined that the Cardano network was their primary bottle neck and measured Cardano's real-world throughput for their smart contracts to be 0.15 TPS.** That's 47x slower than a native UTXO on Cardano, 100x slower than an Ethereum tx, and 66,000x slower than a Cosmos and Terra tx. 0.15 TPS is a max of 12,960 txs per day, under ideal conditions... on the entire Cardano chain. https://sundaeswap-finance.medium.com/expectations-congestion-mainnet-launch-e9da5abfd819 Cardano's problem is much bigger than anything that can be fixed with a 2x parameter adjustment. Max parameters will never be implemented, and even then, they would still leave Cardano more than 3x slower than the second slowest L1 chain, Ethereum. **4. Pipe Lining and 5. Input Endorsers ** ...are great ideas. So why are these still in the research phase? They're promising to deliver a plan that hasn't even been designed yet. Let's assume these get designed and developed in 2022. Then Cardano is in the ballpark of Ethereum L1's low tps and high congestion. **6. Plutus Script Enhancements** These are basic functions (that are still in the research phase because of how they conflict with provability in Hydra). Plutus should not even have been released before they developed reference and data inputs. That was an obvious problem, and it was a huge mistake that will create chaos and disappointment. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3dc6zG9EjWE&t=37m30s Cardano will alway have much larger txs than non-UTXO chains because native UTXOs are so large. On top of that, Plutus' smart contract implementation is extremely bloated and inefficient. The problem is that Cardano's UTXO model can't store smart contracts on-chain. So instead of calling an on-chain smart contract, every Cardano SC tx must include the SC script in every tx, because there is no on-chain SC that can simply be referenced again and again. This makes every Cardano smart contract very large. Cardano currently does native asset txs (without smart contracts) at 7 TPS, and that's the theoretical minimum SC size, if they figure out how to compress SCs 47x. And that means that Cardano SCs will always be at least twice as slow as Ethereum L1's unbearably slow 15 TPS, for the same blocksize. Now is a good time to point out that it's clear from their rhetorical focus of comparing their chain to the next slowest chain, that Cardano holders have no idea how slow Ethereum is. Up to this point in time, almost all of Cardano's txs have been basic UTXO's that haven't filled up blocks, because they are a small fraction of the size of smart contracts. Four months after going live, no one really uses smart contracts on Cardano yet. Muesliswap doesn't even have $100 Million in TVL (and doesn't have $5M in liquidity to other tokens). Small NFT drops did bring the network to a crawl, but we haven't seen speeds across the whole network change dramatically like they will when Sundaeswap launches a real DEX and much bigger txs flood the chain Thursday. And catching up to Ethereum L1 will not be good enough. Ethereum has L2s already, and nobody would use Eth L1 if it went live for the first time today. Ethereum has the first mover advantage of having all the liquidity. Whales don't care about a $200 fee, they care about liquidity. They need to move in and out of large positions quickly with as little price impact and slippage as possible. **7. Node Enhancements** This is not a scaling solution. Yes, fix your bugs and optimize your code. No other chain thinks a node update is a "scaling solution." This is ridiculous. Let me say this again: Cardano is currently 66,000x slower than Cosmos and Terra. Your inability to figure out a trustless lite client is irrelevant right now. **8. Side-chains** Great idea. But Cardano doesn't have any decentralized side-chains, and they didn't even get serious about funding any until late last summer. Proper sidechains are the real solution. Milkomeda is on the right track with their M1 sidechain. It's a accounts model Solidity EVM sidechain that has 32 permissioned nodes and uses slashing. Congratulations on abandoning all of your stated goals, and rushing to produce something usable. We waited six years so Catalyst could fund BSC 2.0. https://dcspark.gitbook.io/milkomeda/our-solution-1/the-m-1-sidechain **9. Hydra** A comprehensive plan for interhead Hydra implementation that approaches anything close to a generalized L2 has yet to be described, let alone developed. We're still waiting for a basic description of how isomorphic state channels will ever scale dApps or have any use between untrusted parties. Hydra's 2022 release schedule is for payment channels between trusted parties. Yes, it will be able to handle smart contracts, but not any smart contracts that dApps use. Hydra heads have to be closed every time a party joins or leaves, and they have no known application for dApps. Hydra is really irrelevant, because native UTXO transfers aren't the problem right now. https://np.reddit.com/r/cardano/comments/s18wie/should_cardano_be_prepared_to_abandon_hydra/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share **10. Off-chain computing** Brilliant. This is a creative solution. Off-chain trusted computations. *Finally something that makes sense.* Yes, Cardano users should definitely do their computations somewhere they trust, off-chain... Muhammad Fucking Christ. Let me suggest they do their computations on one of the 79 other L1 blockchains. **11. Mithril** >To achieve greater scalability, you need to address the complexity of critical operations that depend logarithmically on the number of participants. What? This is straight gibberish. Mithril is obviously not a relevant scaling solution. Mithril is a solution to a problem that many other chains don't even have. Even Ethereum can run a trustless lite client. Wtf does that have to do with how slow Cardano SCs are? **12. Fees** The short term consequence of Sundaeswap's launch will be a DDOS attack. Txs across the entire Cardano network will take days to process. I predict that Sundaeswap will be forced to throttle their volume, so that the rest of the chain is usable. Best case scenario for EOY 2022, Cardano users can expect Ethereum L1 tx speeds, if everything goes right. And Cardano has another problem they still haven't solved that Ethereum doesn't have. Slow blockchains require high fees, and Cardano doesn't have dynamic fees. Price fixing always creates shortages. They need dynamic fees. There's no way around supply and demand. Everyone has been saying Cardano's fee model wouldn't work for years. IOHK is just now taking the question seriously, and their recent moves on fees makes it clear that they have no idea what they are doing. People don't pay fees for fun. The fees are the only thing that make Ethereum us

Post is by: greenappletree and the url/text [ ](https://goo.gl/GP6ppk)is: /r/CryptoCurrency/comments/s1w64t/lots_of_interesting_news_recently_nvidia/ Without a doubt its a been a wild few days. Here are some interesting events I like to share. ​ >Nvidia on Tuesday unveiled a new version of its GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with 12GB of memory, a 2GB bump over the 10GB version of the RTX 3080 that came out in 2020. The upgraded 12GB RTX 3080 will be available starting **today** from Nvidia's partners. ​ >Jack Dorsey’s BLOCK is hiring Bitcoin Mining Experts. Block also annouced CashApp, a mobile transaction service developed by Block, also announced its availability to customers 13 years and older, giving users the option to purchase bitcoin. ​ >According to a recent listing Block is looking to hire a custom digital design lead to join the team that will help build the “next generation” of microchips used to mine Bitcoin. In a series of tweets in October 2021, Block CEO Jack Dorsey touched on some of the key features that would be included in the open-source Bitcoin mining system based on custom silicon. “Mining needs to be more distributed. The core job of a miner is to securely settle transactions without the need for trusted 3rd parties. This is critical well after the last bitcoin is mined. The more decentralized this is, the more resilient the Bitcoin network becomes,” stated Dorsey at the time *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please [contact the moderators of this subreddit](/message/compose/?to=/r/CryptoCurrency) if you have any questions or concerns.*

My understanding is that the complete hash of the block header is used to determine if a block is valid, in the form `SHA256(SHA256($BLOCK_HEADER))`, and the block header contains > block version, the previous block's hash, the merkle root hash (hash for the block's transactions), the current time, current difficulty target and a nonce

I once got tipped almost $1000 worth of $BLOCK by multiple strangers in the Blocknet discord. All I did was reply to a youtube channel in the comments asking them to do a video about Blocknet. [And they did](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yt4KPu_TYz0)! I was extremely happy when I saw those huge tips. (they used a tip bot in their discord)

Except you didn’t read the fine print. That 25% commission only applies to block validation rewards. You always get the 4.8% or w/e the beacon chain staking rate is. Coinbase only takes 25% of the BLOCK validation reward IF coinbase validates a block on the beacon chain.

$BLOCK from $60 to $0.80 ... Yet everyone at the Blocknet community is more bullish than ever. Price does not reflect tech development.
