quick note: Cash Accounts just entered beta - go test it at - public, decentralized, open aliasing system for all. :)
The #CashAccount beta has started, go test it out:
If you did, you would understand why mining 10 secret blocks then forcing them on half the network would cause a split regardless of checkpoints.
Not to mention that a secret chain of 10 depth is an extreme risk financially, as the chain needs to have more than just 10 depth, it needs to have a higher cumulative PoW as well.
I’ve abandoned this thread for Bitcoin SV thread. Good luck to all! I’m so happy with my fortunes in BSV
I'll subscribe to PewDiePie if he subscribes to memo first :P
Competing chain tip blocks are a common phenomenon and worked out by pow. They have nothing to do with checkpoints that are ten blocks deep.
AFAIK, the checkpoint is 10 blocks back, not every 10th block.
I tried to use The color is offputting. -.-
Clarification though, if you mean time that I am personally occupied and cannot do other things, it's close to zero. Tell the computer what to install, it does it for you.
Now that I'm used to it, I usually get it set up from scratch in less than a day. Upgrading weekly (in the background) usually takes about an hour.
First time I installed gentoo (and didn't know what I was doing), it took 3 days. I threw it out since it wasn't working. Second time took 2 days, and worked decently.
From an empty disk to fully installed (ignoring time to choose what packages to install and what features they should use), my AMD FX-8120 takes roughly 6 hours.
On my current install, with a modern browser and some tabs open for various pages (including youtube), my entire system (KDE, discord, network stuff, browser, music player) fit in 2GB.
Yes, all dependent libraries that are linked at compile-time has to be loaded to ram, regardless of if you use them or not, in order to use the application.
Dependency creep from supporting everything at compile-time. Sometimes I really wish people tried a minimal USE-flag install of gentoo to compare with. It's like night and day.
can you be certaint that those rules are actually applied on the network?

Just because a developer writes code, doesn't mean miners automatically validate using it.
The real deal is BCH isn't going away, If SV should gain traction, they will both be around. By definition, they are both considered Bitcoin.
one week before the hashwar started, nchain more than doubled their hash. Currently they are mining with less than half (1.3Ph/s), despite claiming they would exclusively mine for BSV.
I find the exact opposite to the be true.
Why does it feel like this chat discussion here is >50% about SV these days? And why is it almost exclusively bashing BCH instead of being productive?
Hasn't the labor theory of value been debunked multiple times by now? It's a great signal, yes, but signals show peoples beliefs and people can be wrong.
Those 3% is roughtly 500PH/s. Accumulated PoW is roughly 800,000,000 PH ahead on the ABC side. You would need to sustain that edge consistently for about 20 days to catch up PoW.
Or, maybe you have seen it, and just don't deem it particulary important.
