>There is a lot more too it, but it’s intellectually false to claim it was about a group just trying to claim BCH is the real Bitcoin **out of nowhere**… Did I? >BCH **has turned** into a scam ​ And with that I want to add that no matter if the block size is 1MB, 8MB or 100MB, BTC could never scale on-chain to global levels while keeping everyone able to sync and verify the blockchain. Maybe you BCH folks need to read more than just the headline of the whitepaper to understand Satoshi's real vision.

It turned into a scam when most of its followers started claiming it's the real BTC, even though hash-rate and price CLEARLY proves it was the minority fork. Now one could argue that a minority forking a project like BTC can never have good intentions to begin with. BCH isn't dead? Currently I see blocks which have about \~50 tx there, while BTC has \~3k transactions per block. Looks like increasing the block size to 8MB made a lot of sense. /s

People keep saying things like: "Bitcoin can't scale because you have to store the purchase of a cup of coffee on the chain for all eternity" while in the white paper it said >Once the latest transaction in a coin is buried under enough blocks, the spent transactions before it can be discarded to save disk space. To facilitate this without breaking the block's hash, transactions are hashed in a Merkle Tree [7][2][5], with only the root included in the block's hash. Old blocks can then be compacted by stubbing off branches of the tree. The interior hashes do not need to be stored. A block header with no transactions would be about 80 bytes. If we suppose blocks are generated every 10 minutes, 80 bytes * 6 * 24 * 365 = 4.2MB per year. With computer systems typically selling with 2GB of RAM as of 2008, and Moore's Law predicting current growth of 1.2GB per year, storage should not be a problem even if the block headers must be kept in memory. People keep saying that if you use a SPV wallet instead of running a full node you are not secure while the whitepaper said: >t is possible to verify payments without running a full network node. A user only needs to keep a copy of the block headers of the longest proof-of-work chain, which he can get by querying network nodes until he's convinced he has the longest chain, and obtain the Merkle branch linking the transaction to the block it's timestamped in. He can't check the transaction for himself, but by linking it to a place in the chain, he can see that a network node has accepted it, and blocks added after it further confirm the network has accepted it. As such, the verification is reliable as long as honest nodes control the network, but is more vulnerable if the network is overpowered by an attacker. While network nodes can verify transactions for themselves, the simplified method can be fooled by an attacker's fabricated transactions for as long as the attacker can continue to overpower the network. One strategy to protect against this would be to accept alerts from network nodes when they detect an invalid block, prompting the user's software to download the full block and alerted transactions to confirm the inconsistency. Businesses that receive frequent payments will probably still want to run their own nodes for more independent security and quicker verification. People keep saying that a 51% attack will cause you to lose your coins while the whitepaper said: >We consider the scenario of an attacker trying to generate an alternate chain faster than the honest chain. Even if this is accomplished, it does not throw the system open to arbitrary changes, such as creating value out of thin air or taking money that never belonged to the attacker This is why I am all in on Bitcoin Cash. Because I see everybody else trade on believing lies.

> You're saying ETH doesn't work, is centralized, and is insecure? It is, it's controlled by Joe Lubin and Vitalik. If something happened to Vitalik or he decided to quit Ethereum, you would have even more leakage of people to other coins Solana, Avalance etc. and even new coins. Insecure even at the contract design level, where you had Gavin Woods, the creator of Solidity, failing to create a simple multisig, that resulted in the loss of hundreds of $millions, when a random noob dev called a call and bricked all the multisigs of the network that used that contract. Not to mention the $billions that have been hacked on DeFi due to Ethereum's bad design: https://rekt.news/leaderboard/ Of course, all other turing-complete chains have similar hacks. > Anyone wishing to get involved with staking and validating transactions has a much LOWER cost of entry than BTC. [...] TH validators cost about $100k which is less, while ETH processes 10x the transactions of BTC, AND ETH transactions are much more complex than BTC. Baffled by your numbers, that pretty much upside down. ETH validators need 32 ETH that costs $70k, meanwhile you can get an ASIC for $5k on the secondary market. > Running a pointless BTC node which downloads 1MB of data every 8 minutes and occasionally relays a transaction is not participating in the BTC consensus. Spending $1 million on mining IS participating, but its not for everyone. 2 different things, but both compose the final consensus. UASF showed the power of the economically involved nodes. Miners were stalling SegWit activation with no arguments whatsover, but users gave a deadline and pushed the miners into activation. Not even the core devs were involved in that. This is chaotic but decentralized consesus across the globe, no "foundation" to organize stuff, no committies, no Vitalik or BDFLs. > ETH processes 10x the transactions of BTC, AND ETH transactions are much more complex than BTC. I've tried ETH in the past and it's convience over long-term sustainability. They already try to camouflage not validating the whole chain in order to allow somehow acceptable syncing times. It's a game of jenga and you can see that from various ETH devs and even the lead maintainer, that their path is unsustainable. Having orderbooks on the base-layer is insanse and all those thousands of "add sell order", "cancel sell order" will be on the chain for ever making every syncing slower. > Layer 2 won't exist in 10 years or less, it's pointless construct. Layer 2 is how anything scales efficiently. Vertical scaling is always more expensive and risky and this applies to blockchains too. If you focus on L1, you essentially have 1 machine handle every single transactions. With L2+ you gain parallelization and you can multiply that 1 machine's effective transaction rate. I already told you about the blockchains that have several TB of data with just a few years, unless the transaction rate is reduced (i.e. giving up on the coin), this will keep getting larger, asking for higher hardware specs, pricing out plain users, making validation accessible only by companies and datacenters, like what is happening with ETH's Infura which handles the biggest part of the network.

You're saying ETH doesn't work, is centralized, and is insecure? lol it's the best smart contract platform and is driving most of the innovation in the crypto space. So all of your hand-wringing is likely for nothing. Anyone wishing to get involved with staking and validating transactions has a much LOWER cost of entry than BTC.

Layer 2 won't exist in 10 years or less, it's pointless construct. We have countless blockchains and wallets to choose from, and it's only logical to conclude that people (who aren't brainwashed with weird meat-diet Maximalist dogma) will choose whatever works best and is the cheapest and easiest to use. The rest is all just nonsense!

Rubbish, unless some nation-state is IP blocking all BTC nodes. And if they're doing that, they're surely blocking Tor! Furthermore BTC can be sent by pasting a signed transaction script into a web interface or broadcast over hundreds of different wireless protocols. Only a few countries have made BTC illegal and none of their citizens have trouble broadcasting transactions. China has the most draconian Bitcoin laws and the citizens mostly ignore them and easily circumvent any technical barriers. None of it has anything to do with Bitcoin having 1MB blocks 4eva.

Bitcoin Cash is, technically, essentially just Bitcoin. Hell, it's closer to the original Bitcoin spec than BTC is now, with Segwit it radically departed from the original recipe. Bitcoin works, this is no shocker. The only thing Bitcoin Cash does differently is accept that a larger block size may be necessary. Even Satoshi included up to 32MB blocks in the original spec, but BTC cling to 1MB like grim death - I assume the maintainers are either nutjobs or saboteurs at this point. There was some talk about the Bilderberg Group owning Blockstream years ago, I dunno. Might have been just a rumor. Either way, there's no reason Bitcoin wouldn't be able to work, the only reason it's not is the massive congestion. Lightning? That's a piece of trash, that's basically Banking 2.0, and at the end of the day you still have to try to transact on the BTC block chain and pay $50 for the privilege, per transaction.

Good luck with that. That's why everyone is using etherscan and Infura is making millions. Nobody really validates the whole chain, they just trust middlemen, which is what Bitcoin is against ideologically. > The point is, they'll never increase blocksize despite every one of their bogus reasons not to scale simply with larger blocks has been soundly disproven. Increasing the blocksize helps nothing really, it's a short-term relief that costs greatly to the decentralization and acccessibility. Instead all efforts should push for sustainable engineering solutions a.k.a. L2+ that are properly designed with trust-minimization in mind. Just like we don't have a single type of vehicle in the roads, sky and sea, the same applies in blockchains.

As far as quality I would say casino coin, because it’s an actual project and there is enough data to actually have a clue of where you are in the cycle. MB589 has a pretty clear accumulation structure playing out there in the mb589/xrp chart. It’s also a very low time frame so idk ultimately how long this will last or if it is just a quick pump and dump going on. Prob a quick pump and dump lol. I like schmeckles cause I think it’s funny, and it has a relatively small total supply, and 2 years of ranging. Mind you though, it is 600% up from its lows back in april 22 ( which makes it even more strange because that is where the entire market capitulated, instead schmeckles went up and never went back to those lows). Xoge maybe will do alright, it’s up 800% from here though. I will buy more if it gives me a better entry but not up here. These are all basically rug pulls though, just like every other coin. It’s usually anywhere between a week or a month of excitement and then it’s all over. The large cap “blue chips” go through the same cycle but its usually a month to 3 months. If you pick 10 coins they will all make you some money as all boats rise together, and maybe one will do 10x. That’s my game plan at least. Just be careful. Everyone is in eth, everyone is in sol, and avax now, hardly anyone is messing with the xrpl. So if there is a sudden rotation ide have some money spread over various alts maybe one will do really well and the other will do ok. The next 3-5 months will be interesting.

* Who is the sender, you or someone else? * Who is the recipient, you or someone else? * What software is used for the sender's wallet? The feerate is 6.46 sat/vB, low enough that the transaction has been purged from the mempools of most nodes. Most nodes are configured to purge the lowest feerate transactions once their mempool takes more than 300 MB of memory. Currently anything below \~21 sat/vB gets purged, see the front page of [https://mempool.space/](https://mempool.space/) for the current value. If you are the sender, what you can do is simply replace the transaction with a higher feerate one. How to do that depends on your wallet software. You may have somehow remove the transaction locally before being able to spend the same coin again. The most general solution would be to restore the wallet from the seed of the existing wallet. It's important that you spend the same coin (2b2bc58aac51668d01f2b4b51f8b16a56e29a1a375d9e1f7a0468290e11ff145:0), otherwise the old transaction is still valid and can appear in a block at any time. The new transaction will have a different TXID and likely a lower amount to the recipient (unless sender adds another input). Make sure the recipient is able to handle this case.

Don't feel too bad about not owning BCH. They've tried doing stress tests and have proven that their the network cannot sustain high transaction volumes for more than a few minutes at a time. BCH claims to support 32+ MB blocks. For reference, ETH runs it's layer 1 as hard as it can, and it runs the equivalent of like 10MB blocks. The only reason BCH network is operational ironically is because no one uses it. Average blocks are only a few kilobytes.

> If miners and nodes quit supporting Taproot then Ordinal transactions can't be mined anymore This is false. The only connection between taproot and ordinals is that taproot removed the 100k limit for a transaction input. This allowed for JPEGs up to 3.7MB (but only one per block if it's that big) But Ordinals is no longer flooding Bitcoin with JPEGs. The current flood is 60-byte JSON fragments as Ordinals data carriers. These were possible under the previous 100k limit. Bitcoin is currently congested, not by Ordinals JPEGs. It is flooded with tiny Ordinals BRC-20 JSON fragments ord text/plain;charset=utf-8 {"p":"brc-20","op":"transfer","tick":"FRAM","amt":"13375"} thousands in each block The use of txinput scripts as data carriers has been possible since P2SH was added, so long ago DOGE does not have taproot.

the sats/byte is based on what other people bid for their tx. Bitcoin is artificially limited to processing about 2 MB per 10 minutes = 3.3 kilobyte per second. Since miners are not allowed to process more by the code they will only process the transactions that pay them the most. But even if you pay them enough, somebody could come after you and pay them more meaning your tx won't be processed. This is not how Satoshi designed it by the way.

Yep. Miners have no incentive to eliminate SegWit or Taproot. Also, if miners stop supporting Segwit and Taproot transactions, it will also eliminate Lightning and reduce the average block size from ~2MB to exactly 1MB, slowing down the entire Bitcoin network. Another easier soft fork would be to greatly increase OP_PUSH fees/vbyte, which targets most Inscriptions since you can't fit a BRC-20 in the 80 byte OP_RETURN.

So I'm giving it a try now, but it's looking like it won't make a difference. Recall if you see the total disk stats from my Bitcoin Core sync, it only reads 60MB from disk over the entire course of initial sync. This is because I allocate 24GB of RAM to the dbcache and thus it already keeps the entire chainstate in memory.

Assuming the minimum is 1 sat/byte, miners mine 1MB blocks. I wager the upper feasible limit on on median chain transactions should be around 100k sat/byte. I'd personally be surprised if the median transaction fee for a year was over 10k sat/byte. It can always spike way up for a short while. It does not really matter what the price of BTC is, there is only so much of it, and only a small percentage of it moves around every day.

Satoshi literally said the 1mb limit is temporary. Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, introduced the 1MB block size limit in 2010. This decision was primarily a temporary anti-spam measure. Satoshi mentioned that the block size limit could be increased when needed, as long as the increase is planned well ahead and the network grows to support higher capacities. The limit was meant to prevent potential denial of service (DoS) attacks by limiting the size and, therefore, the cost of processing each block. However, Satoshi did not provide extensive commentary on this feature; most discussions were practical and focused on immediate network needs.

Blocksize/fees is effectively a spam protection, and a "too high" blocksize will decrease decentralization/security: https://gist.github.com/chris-belcher/a8155df5051bb3e3aa96 We already have had an effective blocksize increase, so blocks are now 1-4MB in size.

you’re absolutely right. Ethereum block size is smaller (~0.2MB) than bitcoin (1MB), but block time is 12 seconds in comparison with bitcoin (10 minutes) so throughout on ethereum is higher.

Meanwhile, ethereum updates this size to keep with the current processing capacity of hardware to keep updated with the technological progress

&#x200B; It has some design restrictions that are deliberate and so far, the network has always voted against them. The BTC Blockchain produces a new block approximately every ten minutes, rain or shine. It can vary a little, but the intent is every 10 minutes. Think of each block as a shoebox full of receipts. The box is a fixed size, and it has a limit on the number of receipts it can hold. This limit is 1MB. The argument over increasing this block size has existed for years. Fees increase when the waiting list (The MemPool) to get into the shoebox gets longer and longer. You can skip to the head of this line by paying more fees. It is supply and demand. Once the Mempool gets smaller the fees go down.

Yes, that was one of the driving forces behind Bitcoin Cash and segwit. Bitcoin Cash used 32MB blocks. The idea was fine, but it was never tested as BCH never took over to the point where those 32MB blocks could be stressed. Segregated witness was released for Bitcoin around the same time Bitcoin Cash forked. Segwit addressed many of the same issues, but took the approach of optimizing what went into the block so more could fit, rather than just increasing the block size. Unfortunately neither are scalable. Increasing the block size and optimizing blocks are arguably band-aids; they didn't allow for the network to support TPS on the scale of credit card networks, for instance. IMO (and I think many share this opinion) Bitcoin is best utilized as a settlement network for large transactions. Higher layer protocols are where consumers need to be. BTC, BCH, ETH etc. by themselves just don't have the capability of handling the required number of transactions to be used as a p2p payment method.

Bitcoin Core installation binaries can be downloaded from bitcoincore.org and the source-code is available from the [Bitcoin Core source repository](https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin). 26.0 Release Notes Bitcoin Core version 26.0 is now available from: https://bitcoincore.org/bin/bitcoin-core-26.0/ This release includes new features, various bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as updated translations. Please report bugs using the issue tracker at GitHub: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues To receive security and update notifications, please subscribe to: https://bitcoincore.org/en/list/announcements/join/ How to Upgrade If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes in some cases), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on macOS) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux). Upgrading directly from a version of Bitcoin Core that has reached its EOL is possible, but it might take some time if the data directory needs to be migrated. Old wallet versions of Bitcoin Core are generally supported. Compatibility Bitcoin Core is supported and extensively tested on operating systems using the Linux kernel, macOS 11.0+, and Windows 7 and newer. 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. Notable changes P2P and network changes Experimental support for the v2 transport protocol defined in BIP324 was added. It is off by default, but when enabled using -v2transport it will be negotiated on a per-connection basis with other peers that support it too. The existing v1 transport protocol remains fully supported. Nodes with multiple reachable networks will actively try to have at least one outbound connection to each network. This improves individual resistance to eclipse attacks and network level resistance to partition attacks. Users no longer need to perform active measures to ensure being connected to multiple enabled networks. (#27213) Pruning When using assumeutxo with -prune, the prune budget may be exceeded if it is set lower than 1100MB (i.e. MIN_DISK_SPACE_FOR_BLOCK_FILES * 2). Prune budget is normally split evenly across each chainstate, unless the resulting prune budget per chainstate is beneath MIN_DISK_SPACE_FOR_BLOCK_FILES in which case that value will be used. (#27596) Updated RPCs Setting -rpcserialversion=0 is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. It can currently still be used by also adding the -deprecatedrpc=serialversion option. (#28448) The hash_serialized_2 value has been removed from gettxoutsetinfo since the value it calculated contained a bug and did not take all data into account. It is superseded by hash_serialized_3 which provides the same functionality but serves the correctly calculated hash. (#28685) New fields transport_protocol_type and session_id were added to the getpeerinfo RPC to indicate whether the v2 transport protocol is in use, and if so, what the session id is. A new argument v2transport was added to the addnode RPC to indicate whether a v2 transaction connection is to be attempted with the peer. Miniscript expressions can now be used in Taproot descriptors for all RPCs working with descriptors. (#27255) finalizepsbt is now able to finalize a PSBT with inputs spending Miniscript-compatible Taproot leaves. (#27255) Changes to wallet related RPCs can be found in the Wallet section below. New RPCs loadtxoutset has been added, which allows loading a UTXO snapshot of the format generated by dumptxoutset. Once this snapshot is loaded, its contents will be deserialized into a second chainstate data structure, which is then used to sync to the network’s tip. Meanwhile, the original chainstate will complete the initial block download process in the background, eventually validating up to the block that the snapshot is based upon. The result is a usable bitcoind instance that is current with the network tip in a matter of minutes rather than hours. UTXO snapshot are typically obtained via third-party sources (HTTP, torrent, etc.) which is reasonable since their contents are always checked by hash. You can find more information on this process in the assumeutxo design document (https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/doc/design/assumeutxo.md). getchainstates has been added to aid in monitoring the assumeutxo sync process. A new getprioritisedtransactions RPC has been added. It returns a map of all fee deltas created by the user with prioritisetransaction, indexed by txid. The map also indicates whether each transaction is present in the mempool. (#27501) A new RPC, submitpackage, has been added. It can be used to submit a list of raw hex transactions to the mempool to be evaluated as a package using consensus and mempool policy rules. These policies include package CPFP, allowing a child with high fees to bump a parent below the mempool minimum feerate (but not minimum relay feerate). (#27609) Warning: successful submission does not mean the transactions will propagate throughout the network, as package relay is not supported. Not all features are available. The package is limited to a child with all of its unconfirmed parents, and no parent may spend the output of another parent. Also, package RBF is not supported. Refer to doc/policy/packages.md for more details on package policies and limitations. This RPC is experimental. Its interface may change.

Not, let's make the blocks 10MB (40MB segwit). What do you think will happen? The orditards will inscribe 10X more tokens and jpegs and will push the fees up again.Congrats! Also, instead of 50k nodes, the Bitcoin network has only 1k of them because not many people can afford 10TB SSD disk, 16GB RAM, a new CPU and optic internet connection.

Why would you not take the time to read it? 4-8MB blocks would make a world of difference. Literally nobody is going to self custody lightning right now if it’s costing an arm and a leg to open channels, and the entire argument for small blocks was the self custody argument…. LN is a mess right now with everybody just using custodial solutions like WoS, highly problematic, and we’re not even in bullmarket.

That's not how it works. A block can contain a maximum of 4 MB of data, so there is a limit to how many transactions can be processed in one block. A larger transaction will take up more block data. Thus, larger transactions typically pay higher fees on a per-byte basis. You can choose to not have your transaction confirmed immediately and thus pay a lower transaction fee But not only that it's on a supply and demand bases, in times of high demand the transaction fees go up, but that varies. And finally the more people that adopt bitcoin, the more nodes and miners there will be. The more miners there are, the amount they get for each block mined is less and fees go down. I can't really explain it fully. But this is not the problem you think it is. That flaw would have been known, long, long go. It's been more than a decade. Banks especially, they aren't going all in without heaps of top crypto, block chain, finance and algorithm people checking everything for flaws and potential risks. And that what they done for the last decade. Now they're excited and so am I.

ICP is the only blockchain where you could run something like this entirely on chain. It has https outcalls and can talk to web2 apis directly from the chain and pull data onto chain. Smart contract size up to 10MB where others are limited to kb in size, and cost too much to hold all the data on chain.

> Look at memepool Do you mean [mempool.space](https://mempool.space), by any chance? That is useful information, but it doesn't reflect the reality of most of the network. Every node has its own mempool, and the default size is 300 MB. Transactions are prioritized by their fee rate, and if the node's mempool is full and a given transaction is paying a lower rate than all other transactions in that mempool, the node will purge it to avoid going over capacity. Also, by default, a node will purge a transaction after holding it for 2 weeks. If enough of the network purges a transaction, for most purposes, it's no longer truly pending, it's just gone. Mempool.space has some nodes configured with much larger mempools so it can keep track of transactions even after most of the network has forgotten their existence. They are interesting and/or useful to know about, because even though they no longer exist as far as the majority of the network is concerned, and therefore will almost certainly *never* get mined if left alone, it's still possible—indeed likely—that some people have copies and may rebroadcast them when conditions are favorable. Sounds like sort of a good thing, right? Well, maybe. Or maybe you're one of the people who made such a transaction, and you've decided you don't want to spend the coins involved after all, or you have some reason that you need certainty about the fate of such coins even if whether or not they are spent isn't that important to you. But the above means the possibility of them suddenly being spent at any time in the future is always there. To eliminate such uncertainty requires making sure that at least one of them *is* spent, even if that just means sending the money to yourself. (The important thing is to invalidate the transaction spending them, achievable through any conflict of spending, so it doesn't matter if not all of the coins are spent.)

I have some 5 1/4 inch diskettes from about 40 years ago, and they are unreadable on any of my machines today. They're the new 1.2 MB kind as well, not the old 360K single-sided.

All you need to read is point 7 in the whitepaper to realize that you have been bamboozled. Ever heard somebody say that storing the purchase of a cup of coffee forever on your hard drive is ridicilous? And they are right of course, but that's never been how Bitcoin was designed or even currently IS designed. To make Bitcoin work we don't need to store all our transactions forever, but only 4.2 MB of blockheaders a year. See for yourself. > 7. Reclaiming Disk Space > Once the latest transaction in a coin is buried under enough blocks, the spent transactions before > it can be discarded to save disk space.

Let me tell you a story to illustrate the weakness of the human mind and how easy it is to exploit it. During the summer of 2010 I first heard about Bitcoin and read the whitepaper. At the time I was the second in command of a small IT company, my friend was my boss. I printed out a copy of the whitepaper and gave it to him, you should read this I said. I think there is some money to be made. He did not read it. Over the years I worked there I kept asking him, did you read the Bitcoin whitepaper. He always had an excuse. I left that company to do my own think. Years and years later in 2018 after the first big bull run to 20K my ex boss changed his entire company and became a litecoin miner. We would actually trade asics once in a while and most of the time we would use BCH for payment. Sometimes I would hire him and pay him with BCH, sometimes he would hire me or buy hardware from my company and pay with BCH. I always asked him: did you read the Bitcoin whitepaper now? Do you understand it now? He would always till have an excuse. His company eventually went bankrupt, he got hacked. He still has no idea how Bitcoin works or what it is or what it's not. He has never forced himself to study it. He is a smart man, he could understand it. But it would take effort. Effort he was not willing to expand. You guys have been bamboozled, but it's to late now. All SHA256 coins will die. All of them where explicity designed with the blockreward as a bribe and a mechanism to distribute the coins to the people that cared to get them. The blockreward is a smaller starter engine to a bigger engine, some jet engines are actually started like this. This bigger engine never got started, there are no 100 million users that use crypto as currency on a daily bases. For any proof of work based crypto, the only way for them to be selfsustainable is to have a large amount of people making a lot of transactions all paying a very small fee that combined provides security for the system.

Increasing the block size was the best thing that they could have done. There are still people that tell me > well the issue was that people couldn’t run nodes because the blockchain was too big, and the 8MB blocks means it takes up 8x space, right? Also, the nodes are important for decentralization. Proving that most people have no idea what the LN actually doing, they just think it was way better than the alternative. Thanks, Blockstream.

I think it should work if you add a line to your bitcoin.conf file: ´prune=10000` 10000 is 10000MB (10GB) here, you can adjust the number as needed (I'm sure if you can go much lower than that currently). Restart Bitcoin Core after you added that line and saved the .conf file.

&#x200B; Yep, the Segwit update back in September 2017 adjusted the total block size from 1MB to a theoretical 4MB max size by shifting to 1 million 'weight units'. You can \[read up on it here\](https://bitcoinmagazine.com/guides/what-is-the-bitcoin-block-size-limit).
