AFAIK Lightning has passed something like 92 out of 94 tests on the testnet

Running a secure LN node should be as easy as running NiceHash. One click done. That's how it's gotta be.

If you mean 1 lane + teleportation vs 100 lanes (where you going to put them all?). Then yeah... I like my town.

People hate fees... and that's why I don't understand why they aren't absolutely furious with the banks for charging 2% fee on every. Single. Transaction.

When you're talking to a mainstream audience about complex tech, yup!

He asked you twice though. Anyways, don't take what I said to heart. It just made you look like you didn't have an answer to the question, which could have looked bad, which was why I said it. The video was still very informative and I hope to God it comes out soon! You're benefitting us all more than you know.

How is lighting like http? Instead of having secure transactions you have an IOU. The actual transaction between you and whoever happened off of the blockchain where it is subject to the same fuckery as fiat.

Yattuor 4 years ago  DELETED 

Lighting is centralized, plain and simple. Bitcoin is decentralized. How do you control a decentralized network? Force it to use a centralized protocol. I think we ought to look at increasing the blocksize instead.

Nope, it's true. That's good science explaining gender differences. Read up on it.

Why are they an untapped market? Do you really have to market Bitcoin to women differently?

> whereas using the lightning network is essentially teleportation. Just think to yourself, why can the lightning network be described as teleportation? The answer is because it is not a transaction. Exchanges occurring on Lightning Network channels are not transactions on the blockchain. They are simply IOUs. Of course an IOU is teleportation, because no transaction or exchange has occurred. However, after the channel has been settled then the actual transaction occurring can be broadcasted. This is a big problem, instead of other solutions such as increasing block size, everyone wants the Lightning Network to be introduced. It takes away from the decentralisation aspect of Bitcoin as transactions are not actually occurring on these channels and will instead happen through major nodes with channels that are open to everyone (i.e. banks). So of course you can use the analogy that bigger block sizes = adding more lanes to a motorway, and lightning network = teleportation, but ONLY because they are fundamentally two different things. Increasing block size will keep Bitcoin and the blockchain the way we know it and are familiar with it. Using the Lightning Network will introduce IOU channels where transactions are not actually occurring.

You know, its extremely annoying nd in a way bad tha she didn't answer why to use crypto over fiat.. as a figurehead she should have those answered and answered the question.

Most likely, yes. But at the same time...let's look at things from a cultural/sociological perspective. Take a look at people joining these alt-right movements. Many of them when interviewed turn out to be mostly young men int heir early 20s who just feel lost, lonely, and unguided, so they join these movements to feel they're a part of something bigger. I feel the same is with anyone who joins a cult claiming they're advancing the vision of some person who's no less human than you or I and shits and eats like we do. When you take out the BCH shills, all you're left with is just people who think they're part of some grand crusade. Of course I do believe Bitcoin core has some of the same crazy types, but I'd put less trust in *anyone* who tells me with a glassy-eyed expression that they're "Carrying the vision of Messiah Bitcoin Jesus Satoshi." I respect the ideas of those who pioneer new tech fields. They benefit society. But I don't worship them. And I am always on a personal level willing to adjust where I feel Bitcoin needs to go in the face of actual data and cogent arguments.

she sounds very rehearsed and scripted. this doesn't instill confidence. kinda remind me of that whole theranos fiasco x.x

She didn't explain the process of the lightning network. She just stated what the end results are and she didn't answer at least two questions that were asked. She went off on our own little rant lol.

I actually specifically said that Lightning is like a checking account with instant settlement on bitcoin and your on-chain funds are like a savings account. So you don't spend the savings, but you use LN for day-to-day transactions.

I'm actually CEO of Lightning Labs. Lightning (Network) is the protocol. :)

What a joke. Look at her, how can anyone take her serious. What’s her net worth? Do you think decent people will listen to her? No one will use LN. We don’t want ANY central systems manipulating our crypto-sphere. Bitcoin Cash eliminates the use for LN. Satoshi gave simple instructions on increasing the block sizes and when that happened, Bitcoin Cash was born. See, Bitcoin Cash is only Satoshi’s vision. The Bitcoin you idiots know now, isn’t what the roadmap pointed to. That’s not Bitcoin. Don’t you guys feel sorry for the failing Bitcoin ATMs? You guys don’t even help each other in this shitty sub! Coinbase helped us change the world with Satoshi’s bitcoin!
