Fiat money is essentially proof-of-stake where the ones with most stake run the full nodes (banks) and everybody else runs SPV. Whatever changes to consensus (money supply) we just have to accept. Our choice is to hard fork this system and start a new currency.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

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.

Lightning nodes are getting DDOS’ed, rumor is that someone from the 2x effort known as “BitPico” has taken credit for this. The Lightning services I’ve deployed have been attacked from the start, with botnets, etc. Deploying in adversarial conditions, decentralization is hard.

Confused about full nodes (reddit.com)

What if the first node I connect to when starting up mine for the first time is compromised in some way. Then I start downloading the blockchain from him and I am never on the real Bitcoin network. How is this prevented from happening? How would I know that this has happend? I am considering switching to Bitcoin Core from Electrum and this though came to me.
