@kristovatlas @JustusRanvier It’s possible to make a change to a system that simultaneously decentralizes one aspect and centralizes another

@kristovatlas @JustusRanvier Sure: (de)centralization is not a metric, it’s a direction. It can be applied to any number of actual metrics.

@DollarJones But the thing about Bitcoin is that the status quo is extremely strong. This is a strength - makes it hard to corrupt.

@DollarJones When voice fails, the only alternative is exit - each node operator must run the rules they want and hope others follow.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 7:14 PM, Jan 18th, 2016 via Twitter Web Client)

7) IMO each proposed change to Bitcoin’s consensus rules should be evaluated on its own regarding if it’s best suited as a hard or soft fork

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

6) Hard forks can be used as a countermeasure against soft forks adopted by miners without the ecosystem’s consent.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

5) Soft forks can be used to counterbalance hard forks that remove too many restrictions from the previous version of the protocol.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

4) Soft forks degrade security for nodes that don’t upgrade.
Hard forks break security for nodes that don’t upgrade.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

3) Soft forks require a dozen entities (mining pools) to upgrade.
Hard forks require thousands of entities (nodes) to upgrade.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

2) Trade-offs between hard & soft forks are complex; neither type is inherently safer. Either can be detrimental to the ecosystem.

@opspryde @bergalex IMO “risk” of a hard fork is due to devs never setting a timeframe for node operators to need check for updates.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to opspryde

@opspryde @bergalex I don’t favor one over the other, in fact I favor both. I wish segwit would be a hard fork so that the code was simpler.
