To the person who crashed my Bitcoin Unlimited node... I've doubled my nodes.
So some core dev found a DoS bug in Bitcoin Unlimited and decided to - very unprofessionally - share the exploit with the world. Of course, in no time at all, someone weaponized it and started DoSing Unlimited nodes around the world. Mine included. What this core dev did was VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. He could have chosen to alert the BU team of the bug without public disclosure, allowing them time to fix it. He chose to tell the world about it instead. He must have known that BU would get attacked because of the way it was released. I can only assume that he wanted this to happen. This tells you all you need to know about the character of this core dev, Peter Todd. Do you really want people like him to be in charge of a multi billion dollar financial system? Of course, I will not be silenced by attacks. BU will not be bombed off the network by script kiddies. I have thus started TWO servers with unmetered traffic to support BU. They are syncing now. Attack me again, and I will double the number of servers again. That's the only way to deal with this - make the attack achieve the exact opposite of it's intended objective.
Core Does Not Control Bitcoin. Run a Bitcoin Unlimited Node.
I’ve been told several times by Bitcoin Core developers, specifically Greg Maxwell, but also many others, that they do not “control” Bitcoin. That they merely write the code they want and people can choose to run it or to run something else. “That’s how it works”, they say. They claim to not be in control, yet they viciously attack other Bitcoin development teams and those supporting them. They also actively Back the bitcoin censorship of any code or ideas not produced by them while allowing attacks and name calling of those opposing their settlement layer direction. I believe it is this, “we can do whatever we want” attitude that led them to ignore users and businesses in the first place. We’ve seen transactions approach the blocksize limit for two years. Gavin Andresen wrote elegantly about why we should increase the blocksize in 2015, rather than waiting until it became a problem. Well, Core didn’t listen and now it is a big, big problem. Some core supporters even have the nerve to say, “a hard fork would take a year to prepare and it’s too late for that now, just run Segwit”. Expert developers know better. Segwit is a road to a settlement-only Bitcoin: A very narrow sliver of Satoshi’s original vision of peer-to-peer electronic cash that we all signed up for. Everyone is excited about an ETF, but when that hits later today there will be massive movements either up or down depending on what happens. This is sure to cause excessive fees and new levels of unconfirmed transactions. Bitcoin Unlimited and Bitcoin Classic are actively listening to users. They’ve solved the blocksize issue once and for all by taking it out of the reference protocol and putting it in the hands of the miners who secure the network. This is safe because miners both want the network to function while also having some revenue from fees. Blocksize increases can happen gradually over time with consensus rather than requiring hard forks every 5 years. It is the best solution moving forward that anyone has proposed. We have seen that Core cannot be trusted. We have seen them act negligently towards basic network functionality. We have seen them ignoring users and only developing for “sexy” second-layer vaporware off-chain projects. We must do as Greg Maxwell suggested and run something other than core’s code. We must fight the fear-driven propaganda and biased censorship from bitcoin. We must call out the minority attacks on the network whether it’s threats from a user-activated soft fork or any other malleability attack In order for Bitcoin to succeed long-term, we must give control back to the users.
Added 2 full Bitcoin unlimited nodes today, feels good.
Feels good to contribute. I have physical servers all over the place, decided to add 2 unlimited full nodes today. Edit. for those asking about connection counts, I am getting 67-75 connections to each server. Make sure to port forward / open your ports.
The Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System for Planet Earth. Bitcoin Core full nodes have certain requirements.
