Did you know that 99.999 percent of Bitcoin Cash was made by Bitcoin Core developers? The only thing Bitcoin Cash developers has done is increasing the block size… Bitcoin Cash is an altcoin. The Lightning Network has more full nodes than Bitcoin Cash.

There is only one Bitcoin and that is BTC. Bitcoin is the most secure and decentralized cryptocurrency, it’s the perfect store of value and with Lightning Network you can make micro payments too. Do the world really need Bitcoin Cash? I think the Bitcoin Cash project will fail. I am not rude ( calling it Bcash ) I’m just realistic. Have a nice day people. This is all my own opinion.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin is an adversarial network; by my count there were 68 attempts in the past week to feed an invalid block to my node. There was also an attempt to create 234,512 BTC out of thin air. This is why we don’t trust, we verify.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Just use lightning network for the first time. Was amazing!

Took about 10 minutes to go from not having anything to buying a skype prepaid card.

Steps:

  1. Downloaded the ECLAIR wallet from the google play store

  2. Loaded the wallet with some BTC

  3. Opened a clannel with ACINQ Node

  4. Went to bitrefill.com

  5. Requested to buy a Skype $ 10 gift card

  6. Scanned the code

  7. Had to wait for BTC and Channel to confirm (3 minutes)

  8. Scanned the code again

  9. Instantly got my gift card.

This is amazing technology!

So far I’ve made 42 transactions on Lightning Network, and it has cost me 600 sat (channel open) and about 120 sat in routing fees. total of 720 sat, or 4.9 cents. Virtually no other alt-coin can compete with these costs.

The Bitcoin hashrate jumped nearly 5 exahash in the last 2 weeks alone. To put that gain in perspective, it took ~8.5 years for the entire network hashrate to reach 5 EH for the first time. Miners are entering at an astonishing rate. (credit https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty)
