People find it difficult to understand what is cryptoccurrency most especially bitcoin,but their interested over cryptoccurrency.
I just suggest that their should be a TEXT BOOK that will discuss about cryptoccurrency in order to educate people who are interested because referring them to online shows that know Manuel evidence of cryptoccurrency. And if their is any article that guide bitcoin.
For me, bitcoin is as easy as gambling on a casino like EarnBet (a decentralized casino operating on the WAX chain and providing gaming services on the blockchain platform)

In the world of internet, and an online currency, why on Earth would you want a text book? Frikin' nerd.

People aren't interested in Bitcoin because it's been flat for YEARS now. So on the one hand, if it goes up a tiny bit, people sell. On the other hand, no one is interested in buying. It's only a matter of (short) time before word spreads that there's no new blood coming to revive and feed the Ponzi and to drop the bags. See you at ZERO. #WhiteSamsonOption

It will be pegged to BTC in some manner because there will be no other alternative. Once given the opportunity for sound money again, this time without the possibility for obfuscation and centralization of supply, people will take it. the gradual capital flight to Bitcoin is impossible to stop, and indeed it happens slow enough that few powers have even attempted. but eventually the tipping point will be reached -- and that comes when national banks and governments begin to buy out of geopolitical fear. that will probably occur post-2024 halving. this current bullrun is all about financial institutionalization and widespread recognition of a competitor to gold for store-of-value. Next halving Bitcoin will of course be twice as scarce as gold, and the "global reserve currency" narrative will begin.

Saifedean Ammous is a known con-man. BTC maximalist moonboy who lashes out like a little boy at anybody who criticizes him, then deletes his tweets afterwards.

BTC is incapable of serving as a currency. Can't serve more than 0.1% of the world's population without requiring second-layer solutions which track and trace everything you do. If you believe in crypto as a concept, you should be in coins like XMR or BCH. But it's dubious that any crypto will have value once we return to a gold standard.

I'm reading the preface right now and wondering how you deluded faggots avoid acknowledging that Bitcoin has NO UTILITY. The best stores of value long-term are stock shares. No one stores value in a currency and holds as little currency as possible at any given time. Currency is a hot potato. Just think for one second in your miserable life. What do you want to buy? Land, let's say. Well, land is owned by corporations, and if you own a share of the corporation, you own the land. I hope you see the various ways I would be going with this if it weren't too tedious to elucidate fully here. The reason jews don't care about inflation is that they own what is bought with whatever currency is current at any given time: STOCKS. Eight billion people work to pay them dividends, and in the meantime, their value is stored as land, equipment, trade secrets, intellectual property, goodwill, and all the rest. You're all hopelessly deluded golem. #WhiteSamsonOption

People just like to shit on bitcoin because they think it was successful solely because of the tech and other tech has eclipsed it.

I think that's nonsense. Other elements were created that were more rare and useful than gold. It still doesn't make gold worthless. Bitcoin has Fidelity looking to create funds for large scale investors to jump into bitcoin. It's not like they are going to pump your bag of kleros or other shit projects any time soon.

>> No.22436068

>>22435958
No, stupid. If Fidelity is making a fund, it's because boomer goyim are too tech illiterate to dump their retirement funds into jewish pockets, so the jews have to bring the crypto to them in a familiar form. Next 401k managers will be making the decision to trade cash for jews' bags for them without their knowledge. Always pick stocks yourselves instead of relying on people who want you dead to manage money for you. #WhiteSamsonOption

I have tried to explain Bitcoin to my mom at least 10x. Every time i mention “mining” Bitcoin, her brain short circuits and she starts over from the beginning of trying to figure it out. I have to explain to her all over again how Bitcoin is not a physical currency, and that the pictures of metal coins that the news uses to explain it are just for show. Mining is just the term used for contributing computing power to the network to make it faster and more secure. Its the strangest fucking thing. Its legitimate NPC robot tier short circuiting. Its like the phrase “mine Bitcoin” erases her knowledge of Bitcoin. She isn’t unusually dumb otherwise, i would say slightly above average intelligence for most things. Her inability to grasp the concept has convinced me that most normies will literally never understand it, but then again, most normies have no idea what fractional reserve banking and quantitative easing is either and they still use the dollar.

Honestly I see BTC just being tokenized on ETH, ADA, TRON, etc and it just being a very well established collateral within DeFi. Pax Gold is also pretty good at this use case.

Either way - I think that's going to lead to these smart contract platforms being the true scalability for Bitcoin, it wont even matter much how fast the base chain is and they can probably get away with just making more efficient use of small blocks in the short term without it making that much of a difference to its adoption.

ETH will also make for great collateral, but its generally more useful to have ETH liquid. Paying for gas, trading for a new ERC-20. BTC people will less desperately feel the need to liquidate it all the time. It's pretty much designed to hold, so why not just hold it in a smart contract that you can borrow against.

But with wbtc and renBTC it can move just as quickly as ETH can... its not limited to 7tps, only if you're transacting on the base chain. It likely wont make sense to do much activity there, but it will still be propped up by its universality across layer 2 chains.

Horses cant be upgraded with Engines. BTC can be updated with ETH, ADA, Tron, etc by being tokenized.

Increases the security of the network, but the difficulty will just increase so that blocks still only come every 10 minutes on average which still limits you to the 7tps on the base chain.

Unless BTC is forked to change the 10 minutes per block target, more efficient data storage on the base chain is discovered, or the block size are increased there wont be an increase beyond 7tps.

Lightning network or other blockchains as layer 2 is the likely way that BTC moves forward. My prediction is that BTC just gets tokenized everywhere and it is trusted as it will survive if ETH, ADA, and other 2nd layer blockchains fail or have more rapid shifts in their adoption and use.

>> No.22437005

>>22436969

Yeah, pretty much. The only time it really matters is if there is a rapid change in the amount of miners. If there is a sudden spike in miners, blocks may come out temporarily at a rate of every 5 minutes, but will adjust back to 10 eventually as difficulty adjusts. Same for the reverse scenario.

But the miners are the reason that its pretty much impossible to 51% attack BTC outside of extremely large mining pool collusion (china) or something like that causing a problem.

>> No.22437026

>>22436969
just more secure to be DIRECTLY attacked. As there is not really any development happening the old bugs and issues still persist let alone the increasing price to secure the network do to the mechanism of adapting the difficulty the higher the hashrate rises while it has to compete with distributed ledger technology that found, cheaper, more secure and elegant ways to solve the double spending problem and other crypographic problems

thanks guys.
I remember a few (10ish) years ago on /b/ I came across a how to mine bitcoin template, the new currency for the internet. I really tried to understand whats going on, but I couldnt wrap my head around it, my pc was shit tier and I gave up. I don't know if bitcoin wallets even existed back then. A few years after reading the template I read the stories about bitcoin used for drugs and stuff and the pizza delivery stories. we all know where we are today and one thing is for sure, do not underestimate the how to templates on 4 chan.
I wonder how many of those early miners spend their bitcoins for stupid shit back then and how many had the foresight to hold until today.

You have a big problem there because what works already has universal adoption: credit cards, Zelle, money orders, cashier's checks, cash, PayPal, you name it. So AT BEST cryptocurrency doesn't make something that already works much worse and reaches a comparable rate of adoption. You don't have a case for payments. What about store of value? Well, I can own shares of companies all over the world, and people who aren't even born yet can be born, mature, and pay me dividends once my agents hire them.
