WikiLeaks will call for a global blockade of Coinbase next week as an unfit member of the crypto community. Coinbase, a large Californian Bitcoin processor, responding to a concealed influence, has blocked the entirely harmless @WikiLeaksShop in a decision approved by management.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Erik Voorhees blocked me on Twitter, for correctly pointing out he has not honored his commitment (in writing), to ensure all hardforks are safe by adding replay protection

Erik Voorhees signed the following statement:

Some exchanges intend to list BTU and all of us will try to take steps to preserve and enable access to customers' BTU. However, none of the undersigned can list BTU unless we can run both chains independently without incident. Consequently, we insist that the Bitcoin Unlimited community (or any other consensus breaking implementation) build in strong two-way replay protection. Failure to do so will impede our ability to preserve BTU for customers and will either delay or outright preclude the listing of BTU.

After committing to this key safety feature, of strong to way replay protection, he has now backed out of the agreement. Erik now supports 2x, which does not include strong replay two-way replay protection. Erik then tried to twist the meaning of words saying 2x was not "consensus breaking", since it has consensus. This is clearly not what the commitment means, it uses the words consensus to mean consensus rules, not "community consensus". Besides, there is not community consensus for 2x anyway, saying so is arrogant.

Erik cannot face up to the truth, so decided to block me on Twitter instead.

Does Voorhee's word mean nothing?

Don´t let miners confuse you. AsicBoost needs to be blocked first!

Once we do remove that huge incentive (from just a few miners, I am sure the others don´t mind blocking it) Segwit will be activated quickly.

According to Roger its a non-issue, and Bitmain is not even using it.

The final goal is to activate Segwit, but now there is to much to lose for miners (fees will drop, LN will get activated giving users more power, Asicboost,…) for them to accept that willingly.

If they still oppose, UASF will be…

Everyday that goes by miner power increases, debilitating the power balance and breaking Bitcoin slowly…
