Bitcoin: Is the Block Chain Getting too Big?
In this video I talk about the bitcoin block chain. I've gotten lots of emails asking if there is positive or negative effects of a ever growing block chain size. I discuss that and mush more in this bitcoin episode. Twitter: https://twitter.com/JPSchaumleffel E-Mail: JPSchaumleffel@Gmail.com Donate Bitcoins? My address is: 1AWSU3BoKzWoGxeydNsEPLoupC4vdfg7wC

Big Changes For Bitcoin Cash - Impact of Block Size & Adding Tokens To The Blockchain
Bitcoin Cash is in the process of making some pretty significant changes. They have increased their block size to 32Mb and are now considering the possibility of adding tokens to their blockchain. There are pros and cons to both sides, but I like that they are taking action and making changes. Regardless of whether you like or dislike Bitcoin Cash, you have to respect them taking action to stay relevant. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ► Business Email: Skrillakingmarketing@gmail.com Useful Links Proud Ambassador Of Dacxi: https://dacxi.com/ Discuss Crypto with Me ►►https://skrillaking.com/discord Buy Bitcoin, Get $10 ►►https://skrillaking.com/coinbase Buy Cryptos on Binance ►►https://skrillaking.com/binance My #1 Hardware Wallet ►►https://skrillaking.com/ledger ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Social Links ► Twitter: https://twitter.com/SkrillaKingReal ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ DISCLAIMER: Only invest what you can comfortably afford to live without, and consult a qualified financial advisor if you’re serious about investing.

Blockchain scaling problem And ICO Doom!
Blockchain scaling problem And ICO Doom! You'll receive $10 in free bitcoin by signing up with this link http://bit.ly/2oesV41 Bitcoin & Ethereum Storage Wallet: http://bit.ly/2o7BmgW Exchange cryptocurrency at the best rate: http://bit.ly/2yOUg1U Consulting with me: Book Here https://clarity.fm/ameerrosic Blockgeeks YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/c/BlockGeeks All I want to do is, talk about the absurdity and FOMO economics of the ICO space and why Blockchain tech is not yet ready for the promises it delivers. On that note, if you missed my last post about “why 99% of ICO will Fail” I recommend that you read that first The reality of today is. Blockchain promises this. ...But delivers that. Too many people are feeding the hype and promise of this amazing tech way before it has time to mature. So I just want you to read this point to understand that we are a long way before we can scale and deliver on the promise. Big Elephant in the room is scalability Blockchain consensus protocols like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tendermint make a tradeoff between low transaction output and being an open source decentralized system vs a Centralized system. As the size of the blockchain grows, the requirements for storage, bandwidth, and compute power, goes up and up and up. Why does this cause a problem? Because every fully participating node in the network must process every transaction. Meaning each node, for the most part, needs to download and update the whole blockchain. Remember that blockchains have one inherent critically important characteristic — “decentralization” — which means that every single node on the network processes every transaction and maintains a copy of the entire state. In order to scale, blockchain protocols must figure out a mechanism to limit the number of participating nodes needed to validate each transaction, without losing the network’s trust I will give you an example with Ethereum This is via Fred Ershan “At the moment, Ethereum can handle about 13 transactions per second, which cuts in half to about 7 transactions per second for tokens (4.7m gas limit, 21k avg gas price for standard txn = ~220 standard txns every block, current avg block time 17s = 13 txns/sec, gas requirement roughly doubles for token transactions). And this doesn’t include more expensive smart contract execution. By this estimate we’re roughly 250x off being able to run a 10m user app and 25,000x off being able to run Facebook on chain. And since these systems are open rather than proprietary, we’ll see applications bigger than Facebook. This estimate isn’t perfect because the dApp stack functions differently in places than the current Web 2.0 stack. But I believe it’s in the right ballpark. This is why I believe scalability will be the primary bottleneck for the industry for the foreseeable future.” Where do we go from here? Simple answer. We need to be working more on protocol layers for scaling for both scaling transactions and also scaling security protocols. Some that come to mind are. Plasma Cosmos Lighting network Ethereum Casper - POS Etc… All of these are still under development and it will take years before we see the speed and security that we need in order to sustain the hype that blockchain promises. And this why I stress the education part on ICO's. It's scary when you see all of these ICO's raise millions that are building on top of protocols that won't be ready for years. Bottom line. We have a long way to go!

Why the blocksize limit keeps Bitcoin free and decentralized
The blocksize limit is what ensures everyone can participate in the Bitcoin network, and it ensures everyone can participate anonymously should they choose too. Some people want to remove this protection to make Bitcoin scale, but we can have the best of both worlds: high transaction volume and true decentralization with off-chain transactions.

WTF is a Blockchain?
I hate buzzwords. Due to the emerging nature of cryptocurrencies, I’ve seen a lot of nonsense being thrown around. These “experts” sound smart because they know all the fancy cryptocurrency jargon, but often what they’re saying doesn’t make any sense. Education is the most important tool, especially for this technology that is widely misunderstood. This series explains things in a way that’s simple but in-depth. Let’s do this. Let’s start off with the basics. What is a blockchain? Don’t overcomplicate things. A blockchain is just a file that stores the transaction history of a cryptocurrency. Each transaction contains has a sender, a receiver, and a transaction amount. This information gets organised into discrete ‘blocks’. The blocks are connected to each other chronologically, and each block stores a number of transactions. This is where the name blockchain comes from – transactions are stored in a chain of blocks. With this it’s easy to understand why blockchains can get congested. Each block takes time to create and can only store a limited amount of transactions. So when the network gets busy and there’s lots of transactions, the network gets overloaded. There’s more pending transactions than the blocks can carry, so trying to send a transaction is met with delays and fees. This is why you hear so many people talk about scalability. It’s the challenge of improving the amount of transactions a blockchain can handle. This is sounds really easy, just increase the size of the blocks right? Correct. But the true challenge is achieving scalability in a way that doesn’t sacrifice security or decentralisation. This is known as the scalability trilemma. Thankfully many bright minds are working on it (while I make bad puns and shitty drawings to explain their work). ~~~ Buy bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin from Coinbase.

What is a Bitcoin Node? - Step by Step Explanation
What is A Bitcoin Node. Step by Step Explanation https://blockgeeks.com/ The bitcoin network consists of a network of nodes, which are just computers or servers running the Bitcoin software. The code ensures the nodes can find and establish connection with other nodes and hence form a network that is used by the various nodes to transfer information, like transactions, blocks and other data. Through this web of interconnecting nodes, bitcoin can send digital cash securely through the network. The underlying bitcoin code implements the bitcoin protocol. So how does a new node join the bitcoin network? First it must discover at least one peer to connect to and then it can get a list of other peers from that initial peer. There are a few methods a node can use to connect to its first peer. The bitcoin client contains a hardcoded list of well known DNS servers which can return a list of ip addresses of bitcoin nodes. Alternatively, the bitcoin client can be given a static ip address of a peer if one is known. You can pass this ip address as a parameter when starting the bitcoin client software through the command line. It’s important to note that bitcoin’s network topology is not geographically defined, so the physical location of the nodes in relation to one another is irrelevant.This means a node can find and connect to any other node regardless of where it is in the world. Once a node has the ip address of a peer, it then goes through an initial handshake to establish a connection with a remote node. First the local node will send a version message to the peer which contains some basic information about itself. This will always be the first message sent by any peer to another peer. The remote peer receiving the message will examine if the sender’s version is compatible with its own version. If it is, it will acknowledge the version message and establish a connection by sending a “version acknowledgment” message, which consists only of a message header with the command string “verack”. Once a node establishes connections with one or more peers, it will exchange some information with these peers. For example, nodes can exchange ip addr of their connected peers, so each node can maintain a list of peers that it can use to re-establish connection in the future since nodes can leave and join the network at anytime. A Node can also ask its peers what the length of their local copy of the blockchain is. It can then determine if it’s own copy of the blockchain is missing any blocks, and if so, can ask its peers to send the missing blocks. Of course it can also send blocks to other nodes who do not have as much data as itself. Let’s take a closer look at the various nodes in the network. Although all the nodes participate in the network, they have different roles depending on the functionalities they want to support. There are 4 major functions: routing, storage, mining and wallet services. The bitcoin core client implementation in c++ has all four of these functionalities. Routing is the bare minimum functionality a node must support in order to participate in the bitcoin network. It contains the functionality to discover and connect to other peers in the network and it also validates and propagates transactions and blocks through the network. It serves the purpose of keeping the network connection alive and passing information through the network. A node is called a full blockchain node if it stores a local copy of the entire blockchain database. A full node can autonomously and authoritatively verify any transactions without any external references. With a full node you get complete independence and freedom from central authority at the cost of hardware storage space. A mining node serve the special purpose of creating a new block to add to the blockchain. Mining nodes runs special mining software in order to solve a cryptographic puzzle to win mining rewards. They serve the purpose of adding new transactions into the blockchain. To learn more visit us at blockgeeks.com

Bitcoin Cash Explained ( BTC vs BCH )
Bitcoin Cash was launched in August 2017 and since become Bitcoin’s most popular cryptocurrency that has forked from bitcoin network. The reason of this fork is to increase the block size and process more transaction per second. Bitcoin’s maximum block capacity is 1MB, at this current time allows to process 3-7 transactions per second and implications of congested blocks, means paying high fees. Bitcoin’s cash on other hand maximum block capacity is 8MB witch is allowed to process around 60 transactions per second and fees 99% cheaper than original bitcoin. ================================================== 💰Get a Coinbase Wallet! - https://www.coinbase.com/join/5a4bf25...

Bitcoin Scaling Explained: Can Bitcoin Cash Scale on Today's Hardware?
Can bitcoin scale on chain by using bigger blocks? If Bitcoin uses todays hardware can it compete with VISA? TPS - Transactions per second Visa on average handles 2,000 TPS reaching a daily peak of around 4000 TPS. As the Bitcoin Core (BTC) network is now throttled at 1MB it can handle around 3TPS with no working 2nd layer solution. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) can currently handle 100 TPS on-chain without the need for any 2nd solutions. The block size is 32mb for BCH. Ethereum currently handles around 19 TPS. The bitcoin scaling debate has gone on for a long time. It's important to understand the facts. Can the Bitcoin Cash network increase block size further using hardware that exists today? To reach 1,000, 2,000 or even 10,000 TPS? A lot of Bitcoin Core (BTC) supporters will say that scaling on chain with bigger blocks in not a long term solution and we will hit a ceiling because of hardware. Roger Ver takes the time to break all of this down in the video above.

Bitcoin vs Monero - Coin Showdown
Coin Showdown is a series that pits competing cryptocurrencies against each other, helping you remain well informed in this fast-paced ecosystem. Today we see how the privacy coin Monero fares against the big daddy of crypto. Both coins were created to provide an alternative form of currency, aiming to challenge the traditional finance and banking world. Since they share similar advantages/disadvantages when compared with the fiat currencies they compete with, we’ll focus on what separates the two as cryptocurrencies. Privacy | Mining | Scalability 1. Privacy “Monero is what I thought bitcoin was when I first heard about it.” When you first heard about bitcoin, you probably thought it was this super-secret, anonymous currency used in black markets to mask illegal activities. You’re not entirely wrong, but there is one key distinction. Bitcoin is not anonymous. It’s pseudo-anonymous at best. Every single bitcoin transaction is completely public. Every single address and all its associated activities, are completely public. On the other hand, Monero was built from the ground up with privacy in mind. It utilises stealth addresses and Ring CT to ensure complete privacy and anonymity. No one will be able to view what you do with Monero. There are multiple reasons this is desirable, and no - not because you are a criminal. 2. Mining Bitcoin can only be mined by specialised hardware called ASICs. These are expensive and are unable to do anything except mine bitcoin. Monero uses another algorithm, which makes CPU and GPU mining feasible. This opens up the possibility for anyone to mine using an ordinary computer. ASICs do add to the security of the network, but increase the centralisation on the network. 3. Transaction & Scalability At first glance, Monero wins this round. The median bitcoin transaction fee is currently sitting at $31, compared to Monero’s $5. However, this is not a fair comparison since bitcoin is processing many more transaction than Monero. A Monero transaction is much larger than a bitcoin one, this is the tradeoff it makes for privacy. Bitcoin operates a 1mb blocksize limit, while Monero has an adjustable blocksize. This makes bitcoin more prone to congestion, but keeps the blockchain small. Monero may be able to deal with a surge in volume better, but at the cost of rapidly increasing blockchain. Monero is aiming to implement Bulletproofs, which will reduce transaction sizes and fees by 80%. Bitcoin recently implemented SegWit, but it has not yet been completely adopted. Off chain scaling methods are being developed for bitcoin and Monero, theoretically creating free and instant transactions. ~~~ Buy bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin from Coinbase.

Bitcoin Cash $BCH Drama & Potential Chain Split... Clearly Explained! (Bitcoin SV vs Bitcoin ABC)
Bitcoin Cash’s (BCH) November Hard Fork is bringing a TON of drama into their community. You have Bitcoin ABC with lead dev Amaury Sechet proposing new Op codes and canonical transaction ordering, while nChain (Craig Wright) and CoinGeek (Calvin Ayre) proposing a different client - Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (Bitcoin SV) - which does not have any of those changes and instead looks to lock in the original Bitcoin protocol 0.1.0 with a block size increase to 128 MB blocks. Then you have Bitcoin Unlimited trying to push for compromise while Cobra released Cobra Client which doesn’t include any of the proposed features - just replay protection. Finally you have Bitmain’s mining pools going against CoinGeek/Craig Wright and Roger Ver still on the sidelines evaluating. For an overview of all the JUICY DRAMA going on in BCH world, please give this video a watch! #BitcoinCash #HardFork #Cryptocurrency

Peter Rizun: A Bitcoin Fee Market Without A Blocksize Limit (Episode 172)
Support the show, consider donating: 16LVjxWGTbQuTV7Nxmpa1gCSfidbPpa71S (http://bit.ly/2me3j6i) With both the Bitcoin Unlimited and Segregated Witness efforts far from reaching majority support and exploding transaction fees, the debate around how to scale Bitcoin continues on. One of the key arguments against bigger blocks and Bitcoin Unlimited is that a blocksize restriction is needed to create a healthy fee market. Dr Peter Rizun has been researching the economics of transaction fees in Bitcoin extensively and joined us to discuss what dynamics affect fees and why he thinks the blocksize limit will eventually fall. Topics discussed in this episode: - Bitcoin seen through the eyes of a physicist - The dynamics that determine transaction fees in Bitcoin - How orphaning risks drive the fee market economics - The relationship between the block reward and the fee market - Why the blocksize limit will eventually fall - Why Peter supports Bitcoin Unlimited - The state of discussion between Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Unlimited Links mentioned in this episode: - Dr. Peter Rizun's talk at Scaling Bitcoin Montreal 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad0Pjj_ms2k - Dr. Peter Rizun: "A Transaction Fee Market Exists Without a Block Size Limit": https://www.bitcoinunlimited.info/resources/feemarket.pdf - XT Nodes - Bitcoin Hashrate Distribution: http://xtnodes.com/ - Bitco.in Forum: https://bitco.in/forum/ - Ledger - Peer-Reviewed Journal on Cryptocurrency and Blockchain: http://ledgerjournal.org/ojs/index.php/ledger Sponsors: - Jaxx: Wallets that Unify the Blockchain Experience Across Devices - http://jaxx.io - Ledger: Smart card security for your Bitcoins - Get 10% off your first order when you use the code EPICENTER - http://ledgerwallet.com This episode is also available on : - Epicenter.tv: https://epicenter.tv/172 - YouTube: http://youtu.be/2eaMVWUXW8U - Souncloud: http://soundcloud.com/epicenterbitcoin/eb-172 Watch or listen, Epicenter is available wherever you get your podcasts.

Bitcoin blocksize debate - An overview of both sides arguments
The bitcoin blocksize debate has been going for a while now. There is 2 factions that are discussing it. One side wants the blocksize to stay small, around 1 mb, and the other side wants the blocksize to increase. Who is right, who is wrong? Well, they both have very interesting arguments and that is why the debate has been going for a while.

URGENT MESSAGE - Bitcoin Cash block size limitation needs to be removed ASAP! Here is why...
Bitcoin Core BTC code development has been sabotaged already, personal interests of the bankers got in a way of scaling Bitcoin system in BTC blockchain. This mistake must not happen again... the "not needed now" mentality is very bad and dangerous because you never know if in the future when bigger blocks are needed, we will have ability to increase the block size again because humans can be bought out, can be corrupted and no one can guarantee that this will not happen again with Bitcoin Cash. So be smart, for this reason... this artificial block size limit needs to either be made automatic so that human interaction is no longer a limiting factor that can prevent it (watch my previous video I made about this proposal), or completely remove it, which is what nChain and Bitcoin SV client are proposing in 2nd coming upgrade (1st coming upgrade being upgrade to 128MB block size limit). Thank you for watching... please support Bitcoin Cash, as it is the real Bitcoin system.

IOHK | Symphony of Blockchains Meetup in London
The Symphony of Blockchains is an interactive, visual and auditory exploration of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and the blockchain. It is an ongoing research initiative with a singular aim: to help bring about greater understanding of both blockchain technology and the ever expanding (and contracting) cryptocurrency marketplace. This video was recorded on location from the latest Symphony of Blockchains Meetup in London with designers from both IOHK and the founder of Kuva. We also hear from the CEO of IOHK on the importance of design and experiences in the blockchain space. In this project, we explore the blockchain of Bitcoin as a physical structure. We examine its inherent underlying qualities by encapsulating data as crystalline forms connected in space, that are immutable and persistent. Using this as a metaphor provides a means to understand the Bitcoin blockchain. Blocks take on the properties of the data, their size, colour and orientation represent various qualities. Blocks are orientated in a spiral tracing back through time, each periodic rotation representing a day in the life of the blockchain. Their size and colour represent the total value of transactions made. Once the blockchain is loaded users simply scroll up or down to move forward or back in time through the blockchain. Using their pointer (or finger on mobile devices) they can easily select an individual node or block in the chain to investigate it further. Once accessed, the user is presented with a view of the unique Merkle tree that identifies that specific block. In addition to the Merkle tree view, the user is presented with a plethora of information giving detail about the transaction the selected block represents. To exit the block view the user simply clicks away.

Skeincoin - SegWit (Segregated Witness)
Skeincoin - SegWit (Segregated Witness) SOON! SegWit is the process by which the block size limit on a blockchain is increased by removing signature data from Bitcoin transactions. When certain parts of a transaction are removed, this frees up space or capacity to add more transactions to the chain. Segregate means to separate, and Witnesses are the transaction signatures. Hence, Segregated Witness in short, means to separate transaction signatures. The concept of SegWit was formulated by Dr. Pieter Wuille.

Mike Hearn - The Plan for Increasing the Blocksize (Bitcoin XT)
Track Bitcoin XT nodes @ XTnodes.com "What's gonna happen is-- either today or tomorrow, I will release another version of Bitcoin XT-- which also doesn't include any blocksize changes, but it just tidies a few things up. And then probably within a week or two Gavin will have a change that's ready to submit to me, through Bitcoin XT, and then we'll integrate that and release it as a version of Bitcoin XT that anyone can upgrade to." - Mike Hearn (June 9, 2015) Mike goes on to explain that Bitcoin XT will use a majority-voting mechanism before the increased block-size change goes into effect, so that it only goes into effect if a certain percentage of nodes are using it.

Bitcoin Segwit - A Fractionally Reserved Blockchain?
I want to be clear, I am not saying that Bitcoin Segwit is a fractional reserve monetary system, I am saying that Segwit fractionalizes the blockchain by adding multiple transaction with one single blockchain. The classic vision of Bitcoin has only one transaction per block entry for a reason and it is this vision that got us where we are now. The blockchain is meant to be a list of all prior transactions to give proof that the crypto works. Bitcoin Segwit removes this guarantee from Bitcoin's blockchain meaning the blockchain is no longer complete proof that Bitcoin has never made a mistake. I'm not saying the Segwit version is unworkable, it just is completely different than what the Bitcoin blockchain was ever meant to be. Bitcoin has always been pseudonymous for a reason, you could always track and trace every transaction for a reason. That reason was the ability to track and trace every transaction to the genesis block is what guarantees that Bitcoin has never made a mistake. That history is what defines Bitcoin. Bitcoin Segwit is removing that history. Finally crypto-currencies that use Proof-of-Stake will also have to grapple with this issue. However, POS crypto-currencies can ensure that the Nodes and Miners are paid accurately by simply changing the block reward to include a percentage to be given to Lightning Nodes based upon the total transactions completed off-chain. This would ensure that the Miners and Lightning Nodes are paid in accordance with the number of transactions they validate and because the Lightning Nodes would be paid directly out of the block reward this would effect the miners only as much as the community preferred to use the Lightning Network. The POS and hybrid crypto-currencies that use Segwit's Lightning version will still suffer auditability issues associated with the more private Lightning transactions, however for all privacy coins this will probably tend to be a bonus. I may release a video discussing the best way for POS coins to adopt the Segwit Lightning Network and how they could use this event to their advantage to gain the market share they have long deserved.

What is Bitcoin's Scaling Problem?
Bitcoin is in the midst of a 'civil war'. Right now the incredible uptake of bitcoin around the world is slowing down the network to a crawl. It goes against everything bitcoin is for. It needs to scale (get bigger and faster) but how can a decentralised network do it? It's no easy answer but here we have a look at what it all means.

Bitcoin BCH - Why not have AUTOMATIC block size limit adjustment?
This is what I think is best option, to not have human interaction needed to raise the block size limit, but for it to be automatic same way difficulty adjustment works. Happy to discuss if you have different idea or something similar, I would prefer not to have chain split (of course, I don't think anyone does want this) but reality is if two sides (or more) are not getting in agreement, chain split will be inevitable, and if that is the case, better have it done ASAP.
