Tried cj with jm. Apparently you have to pay the mining fees of every party involved? No wonder there are 1sat/vb maxi out there.

Last weekend, the minimum fee for accepted transaction did not dip below 10 sat/vB.

@banitama for the record, the previous node was on 32-bit linux. The new one is on 64-bit, and luckily the database is fully compatible to the new node.

Time to experiment with new stuff 😎

Node migration feels similar to doing a brain transplant operation.

@banitama @MrSkweeze Let’s say the companies outnumber normal nodes 4:1 with malicious software (maybe expanding to 42 million coins) Normal nodes wouldn’t run the malicious software and the network would likely fork. Miners would stick to the original chain which would be more valuable having not been diluted with more coins.
Companies would have themselves a chain that no one would want and would have wasted all their capital spinning up malicious nodes.

@MrSkweeze A full node costs ~100$ if you opt for a typical 2GB RPi 4. A 32-core HEDT migh cost 1500$ but you could virtualize multiple instance of full node.
For companies, conjuring that amount of money is easy. What's left is some logistics problem, resource to do it, and some motives...

Is it possible that a group of companies run thousands of nodes to take over the consensus of the network from the plebs?
Looks like I need to buy more Pi.

Bitcoin hodlers have another instance to join here.

Boost / repost this to reach more potential users and keep the fediverse distributed.

This instance is Pleroma with Soapbox. The web UI is pleasant and has a great one on one messenger that you won’t find on Mastodon. You can also use apps compatible with Mastodon and Pleroma.

Today @Bitstamp has gone even further than the law requires. They now want me to:
- show them how much I earn
- show them where I got my #bitcoin from
- proof of funds

Seriously!! WTF!! And I can’t withdraw and leave so must comply..

@[email protected] good idea. Also I don't see any link to that page in, all I see is a message with a list of signer

Alright, tried nyx by torproject. I guess it's not for me. It ate half of my system's RAM.
