The /r/btc China Dispatch: Episode 8: Special Extended Lunar New Year Edition - 8btc Discusses the Official Release of Bitcoin Classic

Howdy /btc, it’s been awhile! The /btc China dispatch was on vacation this week due to the Chinese New Year, but now your humble correspondent is back with the vengeance with more OC from the Bitcoin Sinosphere.
In this edition of the /btc China dispatch, we look at a thread on 8btc.com announcing the release of Bitcoin Classic to Chinese readers. I hope you guys find the translation informative.
Note that unlike in previous editions of the Dispatch, in addition to the posters’ user names, I have also posted their forum titles in parentheses next to their user names for your reference and possible amusement. All accounts on 8btc.com are ranked based on number of accrued points (essentially upvotes) from, in order of lowest to highest, Noob, Shiphand, Crew Member, Squad Leader, First Mate, Captain and Pirate King. Additionally, some people have custom titles equivalent to Reddit flair.

Subject: Bitcoin Classic Officially Released!
Posted by bluestar (Crew Member)
Bitcoin Classic has finally been officially released. You can download it via the link below:
https://github.com/bitcoinclassic/bitcoinclassic/releases/tag/v0.11.2.cl1
Now miners that support Classic can start using Classic to mine blocks. Does anyone know how many miners there are in China who support Classic? I remember a while ago there was someone on 8btc who gave us a tip off, but now there’s no information whatsoever. Has 8btc been abandoned or are the miner’s secretly planning on making a massive move? Any inside info would be appreciated!
You can see the extent to which each version is supported by going to the following page:

I would like to call on the miners to complete the upgrade of bitcoin as soon as possible. If we wait for Core we’re going to be killed off by Blockstream, Inc. sooner or later.
[Response 3]
Posted by hempheart (Squad Leader)
My guess is that the miners will support Core. The miners are putting their lives on the line with their investment unlike small time investors. The small time investors will still be able to eat even if they lose all their BTC.

@hempheart
It doesn’t matter even if they support Classic as the hard fork will only activate once 75% of the hashing power is behind Classic. Once you get 75% of the hashing power, that means that a supermajority support Classic and Core will be nothing but a niche, so there’s no real “winning or losing” when it comes to this vote.

As the name suggests, Classic is a return to Satoshi’s original vision.

@copay
Classic just means classic. What I want to know is whether or not the official release continues to use a 75% threshold for activating a forced hard fork like the beta version, presenting the possibility for a schism in the bitcoin community.
If Classic doesn’t support the 90% 2MB consensus then supporting Classic is basically just like supporting a fracturing of the bitcoin community. I strongly suggest that miners should emphasize first and foremost not dividing the community and boycott any contentious version that forks after less than 90% of hash power is reached.
Pools that support forking at 75% want to divide the community and I advise all miners to leave these pools. It is no longer a simple question of 1MB or 2MB, but rather a question of 75% versus 90%: fork plus schism versus fork with no schism. The issue is about maintaining the unity of the bitcoin community.
To digress a little bit, Bitcoin XT, which has already been abandoned, also sought to hastily fork at 75% and divide the community.

@Ma_Ya
What is the big difference between 75% and 90%?
[Response 10]
Posted by Ma_Ya (Shibe Loves BTC Love Doge Guide idgui.com Captain)
@copay
In the event of a hard fork activated at 75%, there’s a possibility that the remaining 25% of hashpower will hold out.
That is, the hashpower ratio will be 75%:25% = 3:1; at this hashpower ratio there is definitely a possibility that the two coins that result from the fork will coexist and compete with one another. This will result in a splitting of the community and there will be two bitcoins. They will attack one another and claim the other coin is an alt while each saying their own coin is the true bitcoin.
One the other hand, if a fork happens after 90% of hashpower is behind it, the hashpower rate is much higher at 9:1. When the hashpower ratio is this high, the miners working on the 10% chain will need 10x as long to produce a block and they could be attacked by the other 90%, who would only need to send 1/9 of the hashpower to attack the other chain. Therefore it will be difficult for the 10% chain to survive over the long term. Therefore there will be no split in the community.

Four Major Mining Pools Call for Consensus, Reject Hard Fork to Bitcoin Classic
http://8btc.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=28955
My proposal that Classic needs to support the 90% 2 MB consensus as soon as possible is made in good faith.
Currently Classic does not support the 90% 2 MB consensus and insists on initiating a hard fork at 75% with the possibility of dividing the community, so the major mining pools have come out with a joint statement saying that they do not support it. This joint statement is Classic’s failure. I never would have imagined that their failure would be announced as soon as they released an official version.
The results might be different if the official version had supported the 90% 2 MB consensus and avoided the risk of dividing the community.

A solution is out there, which is good. Much better than the unending bluster from Core. Whether you support Classic or not, they’re efficient.

@Ma_Ya
The front page of 8btc:
http://www.8btc.com/34454 [Translator’s Note: The headline of the page linked to reads “A Summary of Discussion Regarding the Raising of the Bitcoin Block Size”]
Take a close look. The pools haven’t rejected it, they’re just waiting to see how Core responds. Btcc, who are regarded as diehard core followers said: “if Bitcoin Core still does not consent to raise the block size using this method, then we will very probably need to look for another leading team to implement a hard fork, with an activation period of 12 months.”
  1. Btcc has given Core 1 year (of course I personally think this is too long); if Core does not implement a hard fork then btcc will have to find some other solution.
  2. The fact of the matter is that everyone is waiting for a statement from Core and if they don’t make themselves clear in the next few months then their exit will be inevitable.

@jb9802
Honestly I don’t think there’s any need to respond to this guy’s mantra-like posts. Every time I see one of his posts it’s like hitting a brick wall. I’ve already responded to his calls for 90% support many times in the past. It doesn’t matter how logical you are, he’ll just ignore you and if you slip up anywhere in your argument he’ll just dwell on it without letting go. It would be better to wait until he actually posts something interesting before responding.

Posted by DogeCoin-Keeper (Cosmically Super Awesome Invincible Badass Smart Alert Handsome as Fuck Pirate King Who Is Better Than You in Every Way)
It looks like it’s going to be impossible to raise the block size this way. There will definitely be a simpler way to raise the block size in the future.
[Response 19]
Posted by bluestar (Crew Member)
@DogeCoin-Keeper
Yeah, there’s a simple way. If Core was willing to lead a hard fork it could be accomplished immediately. The problem is they’re not willing.

@bluestar
I think that the current situation is actually okay. If BTC relied on only one team to decide its direction then it wouldn’t need to exist.

Considering Grabbing A Pick-Axe

So I have been doing some digging into DogeCoin and specifically mining for it. Most of the info I have dug up and most of my understanding of this comes from http://dogecointutorial.com/mining.html and http://codinginmysleep.com/bitcoin-mining-in-plain-english/ along with a spattering of readings on /dogecoin and /dogemining.
It's a pretty big world, mining for coins, but I am trying to wrap my head around it. I have a couple of questions, if you guys would be so kind as to answer if you can:
  1. Is it worth it to get into it this late in the game? (Is it late in the game, or is it early and there's a lot of potential left?)
  2. I'm confused about the 'wallet' concept that coins go into. Is there somewhere I go to get this? Is it website specific, or universal?
  3. Is there somewhere I can go to get help walking through the process of starting this? I've read the getting started guides, but I am nervous and would feel better having someone a bit more experienced lending a helping hand.
  4. Is there further resources I should be reading before getting into this? ( Links please? )
  5. Is bandwidth an issue?
I'm planning on starting off small, with my personal gaming rig. Not 24/7, but part-time. Depending on what I see, I'm considering investing in a mining rig within a year. I plan on using e-currency as an investment. Is this wise? What's your experiences? Anything you think is worth bringing up to someone about to get his toes wet in this process, please, let me know. No tid-bit is un-juicy to this sponge. I'm trying to learn as much as I can.

Why the feds should sell their DPR bitcoin to institutional investors

After nearing the $1000 threshold once again, the price of bitcoin corrected yesterday and now trades around $815. But with the spate of recent positive news re merchant adoption (Overstock, Zynga, maybe Netflix), institutional interest (Fortress / Pantera), and regulatory wins (India, US - see Tid Bits), it’s hard not to like Bitcoin in 2014.
There is only one piece of news that seems to be applying downward pressure on Bitcoin prices. And I believe that news is being wildly misinterpreted. Yesterday, TechCrunch broke a story on the arrest of another one of the Silk Road moderators in Ireland, but buried the lead:
*In related news, the millions of dollars in bitcoin seized by the FBI from Ross Ulbricht and the first Silk Road, currently stored in a set of online wallets, appears to be on the move. A source in the U.S. Justice Department said that “authorities” have access to the Ulbricht’s bitcoin cache and may be selling it off for less volatile currencies in the next few weeks. Ulbright has given the U.S. government the private keys to the bitcoins.
“The reason for selling is that the Government has lost faith in the value of bitcoin and does not want to deal with the volatility of the currency,” the source said.*
The prospect of a government firesale spooked many people within the Bitcoin community, and rightly so. Yet while a rapid wholesale of the seized Silk Road assets would overwhelm the market and send the price of bitcoin crashing, it’s hard to imagine the government acting so foolishly. Say what you want about our dear leaders, but you can bet your ass that they will be careful when cashing in $115 million worth of found money (market rate for the ~144,000 seized bitcoins). They have two much better options. The first obvious solution is to wind down the position gradually…maybe 1000 BTC per day, and deal with the ensuing near-term volatility. Within less than six months, they could take their gains without breaking the market.
There is also a second, better option that has been neglected: if the federal government has indeed lost faith in the value of bitcoin (which is an insanely ironic claim given QE 1-infinity) and desires a quick disposal of its assets, it might do well to consider an institutional sale. If 2014 proves to be the year of the institutional investor in Bitcoin, the feds are a big seller in a sellers market. There could already be plenty of interested parties with the liquidity to make such a large scale asset purchase. Dan Primack at Fortune broke news before New Year’s about the $150 million bitcoin-related fund that Fortress Investment Group is forming with Pantera capital. Is it really that unlikely that a trading desk at Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, BofAML, Citi, Morgan Stanley, etc. buys a similar stake? If that is a possibility, then Wall Street is in the complementary “buy” position to the feds’ ”sell” position.
Moreover, you have have to believe that in the event of an auction like this, the feds would be tipping their hand when it comes to their anticipated regulatory stance on Bitcoin. ”It’s a legal commodity, Wall Street…fire away!” The enormity of a federal asset sale to institutional investors cannot be understated from a legislative perspective, either. If Wall Street starts making money within the Bitcoin ecosystem, they could call off the lobbying dogs that would otherwise work to impede Bitcoin’s progress within the existing regulatory framework.

Early investors were buying Lamborghini’s for god sake! Then I got disappointed. CRUSHED even. So did everyone else … A Tidbit about Bitcoins. In addition, trading with bitcoin CFDs is intended as a short-term operation, unlike a traditional investment. This bitcoin CFD allows you to open an upward or downward position and then close it as fitting in order to achieve an economic result. The economic result depends on the price variation that occurs from Another interesting tidbit to this factor is that Bitcoin transactions are typically tax-free! Some revenue agencies still treat them like property for tax purposes, however, which means you should stay informed on how this investment might affect your taxes.
