Pieter Wuille: Bitcoin Core's maintainers do not, and do not want to, decide what the network's rules are.

Core does not want to change the network rules without "widespread agreement" and yet they spend months developing segwit and then merge it without "widespread agreement". Hypocrisy...

Bitcoin & Bitcoin Cash - A Conspiracy Theory

The following is a recent excerpt from Jeff Berwick...
BITCOIN & BITCOIN CASH - A CONSPIRACY THEORY
I think there is a reasonably likely conspiracy theory to do with Bitcoin and its most recent fork.
As many know, many of the core bitcoin developers work for a company called Blockstream. Developers include Adam Back (President, Blockstream), Gregory Maxwell (CTO, Blockstream), Mark Friedenbach (Co-founder, Blockstream), Pieter Wuille (Bitcoin Core developer), Samson Mow (CSO), and Christopher Allen (co-author of IETF Transport Layer Security.
What many may not be aware of is that Blockstream is controlled by the Bilderberg Group. AXA Strategic Ventures, co-lead investor for Blockstream's $55 million financing round, is the investment arm of French insurance giant AXA Group - whose CEO Henri de Castries has been Chairman of the Bilderberg Group since 2012.
At the same time, the most popular Bitcoin reddit, /Bitcoin, has become almost completely censored in the last few years and only allows pro-Blockstream related content.
Blockstream has been resistant to the common sense idea of increasing the Bitcoin block size for years. And this makes perfect sense in that Blockstream’s entire business model is based on creating sidechains which profit from a slow or expensive Bitcoin network.
Finally, some people, including Roger Ver had had enough of this takeover of Bitcoin and thus we have the hard fork and Bitcoin Cash today.
THE CONSPIRACY THEORY
This all gets quite complicated and I won’t bore you with all the details (but I will include lots of links for more information for those of you who want to understand this on a deep level).
But, here is the theory I have come up with in a nutshell.
We know the globalists want to destroy bitcoin. And, we know they can’t do it via their traditional means of sending in government thugs to kill, arrest and steal everything because there is no one central point of failure for bitcoin.
So, if they did want to try to destroy bitcoin what would they do? First they would try to employ as many of the most prominent bitcoin coders. Check.
Then they’d want to try to control the narrative which, for bitcoin, has been centered at /bitcoin, where they now appear to have complete censorship powers against anything competing with Blockstream’s proposals. Check.
They’d then want to subterfugely get code implemented into bitcoin which is a) irreversible and b) a ticking timebomb for BTC’s destruction.
Well, we don’t know yet, but that is exactly what Segwit could be.
As I said, I am not going to include pages of information supporting this theory in this issue as it would get into the hundreds of pages. Instead, I will leave you links to further information.
First, here is a blockchain techie, modprobe, and his concerns about Segwit, “I Looked Into SegWit, and Here's What I Saw .”
Here are some of the most pertinent items he mentioned:
There are two major implications to this hack. The first is that segwit is a one-way ticket: once it starts, it can never be removed because to remove the (insanely complicated) segwit rules that say "Ignore what the transaction says and look at the witness data instead" would leave only the "anyone can spend me without any authorization" rule on all segwit balances. Thus anyone could steal all the coins in segwit balances. To remove segwit, it would either be necessary to keep the (insanely complicated) rules in play, but disallow new transactions to use them, or convince all Bitcoin users to first move their bitcoins to a non-segwit balance. The first isn't really removing segwit, since its rules would still be in use, and the second is simply not going to happen since segwit proponents will lie and censor (just like they're doing now to promote segwit) to scare people away from leaving it behind. The second implication is even more chilling: for the first time, the Bitcoin protocol will have official support for theft of bitcoins. See, the formal rules of bitcoin will be "anyone can spend these coins without authorization," but the segwit rules will say otherwise. This means that anyone who can get a majority of miners to agree to look the other way (i.e. ignore the segwit rules) can send a transaction that spends those bitcoins without authorization, and it will be valid by protocol. At present, if the majority of miners attempted to do this, their blocks would be invalid (and ignored by the network) because they violate the Bitcoin protocol, but with segwit, the Bitcoin protocol will only understand "anyone can spend these coins" so as long as the miners agree to ignore the segwit rules, the transaction will pass checks. Obviously this means that the miners could collude to steal everyone's segwit balances, but more likely, a government could force mining organizations to allow their transactions to steal bitcoins, reverse transactions, or whatever else. Whereas previously this meddling would've been extremely noisy, causing a hard fork (which would have likely been ignored). With segwit, however, theft by miner collusion is a first class feature.
For those who prefer their information in video format rather than text, here is an excellent presentation on the problems with Segwit from the Chief Scientist for Bitcoin Unlimited, Peter Rizun.
To summarize, one could imagine a few scenarios where Segwit had major problems or resulted in the loss/hack/theft of the majority of bitcoins… which would be a virtual death knell for bitcoin. And, yes, it is possible this is being done on purpose.
Segwit will begin to be implemented in about two weeks.
A further “conspiracy theory” is that those behind Bitcoin Cash are doing so as a means to take over control of bitcoin. Here is a good article by bellerophon on Steemit, “The Black Swan That Could Turn Bitcoin Upside Down.”
In it he posits that Bitcoin Cash has been set-up in such a way that miners, out of self-interest, will switch from bitcoin to Bitcoin Cash mining in the coming weeks… which would cause a crash in Bitcoin and spike in Bitcoin Cash.
And yet another more obscure and anonymous theory was posted here.
Here is a snippet from this theory:
The plan goes like this: Chinese miners (f2pool, antpool etc etc) have organised with major exchanges (via/huobi/okcoin etc) to support and launch bitcoin cash. Initially they will let everyone who wants to sell, sell. Once the coin has bottomed out, and everyone who wanted to sell has sold, they [chinese miners/jihad/chinese exchanges] will begin accumulating lots and lots of bitcoin cash. They will then begin to pump the price to around 0.1 BCC/BTC - 10% The big pools won't mine it ~ they will let the smaller pools see the returns from mining this expensive, but low difficulty coin and start mining it. Later, the larger pools will join, and as we know, jihad has ALOT of hashing power, their plan is for bitcoin cash to have more hashing power than bitcoin ~ and lets be honest, once the chinese move over, that is pretty much it. Around this time, the 'hard fork' section of segwit 2x is not going to happen ~ it never was - Bitcoin cash will then be seen as the original NYA coin. At that point in time, Bitcoin cash will be on all major chinese exchanges, possibly some western exchanges aswell, and have majority hashing power. Western companies & other merchant providers (BitPay - @Spair) etc - paid off by bitmain etc will go along with the new bitcoin cash narrative and will push for the 'bitcoin cash' to be called 'bitcoin' on all their platforms, leaving only coinbase et all which will then be the odd ones out.. Now comes the scary part, The old bitcoin, the bitcoin we know and love, is going to get DESTROYED.
As you can see this is a lot to consider… and worry about if you own bitcoin!
For this reason I have suggested all those who held bitcoin on August 1st and received Bitcoin Cash hold on to it for at least the time being.
If any of the above theories play out you’ll be very happy you did. And if none of them play out and Bitcoin Cash goes the way of the Dodo bird it was really ‘free money” anyway.
And, that’s not to mention that if Blockstream continues to make bitcoin more expensive to use that Bitcoin Cash could end up being the currency of choice for day-to-day transactions while legacy bitcoin could be used more as a store of digital wealth and not for microtransactions.
So, it is definitely worth just holding on to your Bitcoin Cash for now.
That leaves the question, should you buy Bitcoin Cash? At the time of this writing it is at $320 and a $5 billion market cap.
It is too early to say how Bitcoin Cash will do so if you do want to buy consider it very speculative.
That said, as you’ll see below, from Ed Bugos, from a strictly free market perspective he is a fan of Bitcoin Cash.
CONCLUSION
At the time of this writing, bitcoin is trading near $3,300 and Bitcoin Cash near $300 for a combined total of $3,600… meaning any/all TDV subscribers who owned bitcoin prior to August 1st have all done very well in recent weeks!

3 facts you need to know about Samson Mow’s AMA on 8btc-SW and Scaling

AS Mr. Mow is going to hold the AMA on 8btc, here are some backgrounds for your reference
1.Why scaling is on the table?
As the world economy is facing downturn pressure and the global financial system, Bitcoin, which gained prevailing recognition for its safety, liquidity and low transaction fees, has been bestowed with mission to transform the future.
However, the impeccable security system of Bitcoin is not perfect. Blocksize is limited within 1MB with 7 transactions per second as its maximum processing capability. The growing demand from user base renders blocksize scaling a pressing and controversial topic in the Bitcoin community.
At the beginning, the scaling plan was to hardfork the blockchain to allow 20MB blocks. However, the community gradually realized that the bigger block was, the more chance it could be orphaned. Also the community will split without full consensus.
2.What is Segregated Witness? Segregated Witness was first proposed by Pieter Wuille, Bitcoin Core and Blockstream developer, in the HongKong Scaling Conference December 2015. It’s a moderate and proper solution in that it meets the scaling demand and minimize the risk for the community to fall apart. Segwit was merged into Bitcoin Core 0.13.1 version on 28th Oct, 2016, almost a year later from its first proposal. The activation of SegWit will be in compliance with BIP9 requirement, which means 95% of SegWit support must be publicly seen in the last 2016 blocks.
3.Why BTCC matters? As one of the biggest Bitcoin mining pool in the world, BTCC pool has announced SegWit support on 18th November,2016. BTCC’s attitude is really important.

[Informational] [CC0] On Storing Bitcoin

It's said that Bitcoin allows someone to be their own bank. This means that when it comes to money Bitcoin users are only beholden to themselves: no third party can dictate to a Bitcoin user how they may spend their money. However this principle of self-determination also means that when it comes to security Bitcoin users have only themselves to rely upon.
There are a wide variety of ways to use Bitcoin, which means that securing Bitcoin is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Generally though, there are two recommended configurations for using Bitcoins: hot and cold wallets. Hot wallets optimize for ease of spending and movement, cold wallets go the other way and optimize for difficulty of movement to prevent theft.

Hot Wallets

Hot wallets are where Bitcoin commerce happens, coins can flow in and out with the minimum of resistance needed to prevent theft. There are many use cases where a hot wallet is appropriate: receiving payments from third parties, making small daily purchases at points of sale, regular or bulk fund transfers to generic endpoints, and converting to fiat to send an outside currency.

Receiving Payments

For receiving payments, it's recommended that the highest levels of validation be used. Even receiving funds from a trusted person may be suspect, the chain of trust is only as solid as its weakest link, if the trusted person re-sends coins from an untrusted third party, then the trusted person's funds cannot be trusted.
A strong user flow for this use-case is to use a strongly validating wallet as a proxy. Any funds that are known to have been validated by a strongly validating wallet are safe, even when transferred to a weakly validating wallet: the worst case scenario being that they do not transfer to the weakly validating wallet successfully.
Recommended strongly validating wallet:

Mobile Payments

For sending payments on the go or casual payments online, a mobile wallet is seen as a fairly secure option. Although it's unwise to store large amounts on a mobile wallet due to the risk of device loss or theft, a small amount of money on an iPhone or Android is seen as practical as long as those platforms' default security mechanisms have not been bypassed and well-vetted software is used.
Recommended well-vetted mobile wallets:

Regular Spending

For transferring larger amounts of funds or making payments from small to large, it's useful to have a wallet that tempers extreme security with ease-of-use. The most effective way to achieve this utility is through the use of MultiSig, a feature of Bitcoin that allows multiple independent signatories to cryptographically sign off on outgoing fund transfers. This method is seen as highly secure: an attacker attempting to purloin funds must simultaneously compromise multiple independent devices in order to perform an unauthorized spend.
Other security methods are possible that separate and isolate potential attackers, such as crafting transactions on an offline or single purpose computer, but the inconvenience of those methods may lead to their disuse, whereas a multiple signature flow can be simple and closely follows the general security industry best practice of requiring multiple factors for authentication. Using a desktop wallet for regular spending is recommended, due to the standard desktop security model that places reduced trust in the platform vendor.
Recommended MultiSig wallets

Fiat Spending

A Bitcoin user may stand apart from fiat and never touch it, but in practical reality no man is an island and the necessity or desire to interact with a fiat accepting merchant or a less enlightened individual may arise. To ease this process, custodial wallets and debit cards have been developed as compact convenient fiat exchanges. A user simply stores some Bitcoin with a service; when a fiat spend is requested the service automatically performs a market trade and completes the spend. Although generally speaking custodial wallets are not recommended, in the case of spending fiat they are a practical best solution.
Recommended Fiat Spending Solutions

Cold Storage

Many users of Bitcoin have absolutely no need to access the majority of their funds on a day to day basis. To take advantage of this fact, these users can dramatically improve the security of their funds by placing them in a difficult to access cold storage wallet. Many solutions have been created for this use case, but generally speaking there are two broadly useful ways to accomplish cold storage: hardware wallets and HD backup seeds.

Hardware Wallet

From a security perspective all software wallets are extremely problematic: they share a platform with other programs, any one of which may be malicious and abscond with user funds. Platform security features, dedicated computers, or software defensive programming can mitigate the problem but from a logical security perspective the surface area open to attack is much wider than absolutely necessary. A hardware wallet device addresses this problem by being designed specifically to be logically separate and single purpose, minimizing risk of unauthorized fund transfer.
Recommended hardware wallets:

Backup Phrase

Every wallet stores a set of data called private keys, these keys are simply secret random numbers that are used to sign all fund transfers. If wallet files are deleted, and no backup is made, this can mean a loss of funds for the wallet owner: since he can no longer sign a transfer, he can no longer spend his funds.
To avoid this scenario, all that is needed is a backup of the private keys. Not only is this important for securing funds, it can be used as a method to secure funds in a cold way. By deliberately and securely erasing a hot wallet and keeping the backup out of the reach of any network or computer, the funds are logically separated it from the possibility of remote theft.
The best way to accomplish this is a durable and simple system called a Hierarchical Deterministic Seed, or HD seed, a system formalized in Pieter Wuille's Bitcoin Improvement Proposal BIP 32. Essentially, this backup scheme specifies a single random number that is used as a starting seed to deterministically generate a lot of other random numbers, or private keys, to be used by a wallet instead of many individual isolated random numbers that must be collectively backed up.
The big advantage to this system is the extreme ease of backup and restoration: a seed can be encoded as a simple set of twelve words, which are easily written down. Users should keep at least three copies of their seed in separate, secure places, inclusive with a software or hardware wallet using the seed. Various mechanisms exist to improve the durability of stored seeds: laminated paper, safe deposit boxes, safes, etc. Writing down the seed is preferable to printing, as printers and the chain of printing may leak a copy along the way.
