@erikledgers All you have to do is browse the various Bitcoin forums to see the problems users face. High learning curve hinders adoption.

@rhapsodhy @abbydactyl Correct. It’s actually quite simple - just use Signal for SMS instead of the Messenger app.

@rhapsodhy @abbydactyl If you send a message to a non-Signal user, it sends them an SMS. I just did this yesterday, so it definitely works.

@paul_btc @JVWVU1 Some companies would prefer on-chain transactions because then the users can verify balances on their own.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paul_btc

5) As such, I’d bet that some backlogs are not attacks, but rather people firing up new services & learning the hard way.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

4) I tell these companies to use on-chain transactions for entering and exiting their service; the rest should be internal DB updates.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

3) I’ve had to tell a number of companies over the years to re-architect or scrap their plans so that they don’t make too many transactions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

2) Some companies getting into Bitcoin don’t comprehend the scarcity of block space and want the blockchain to do all their accounting.

1) It would only take one moderately sized company to start regularly sending BTC to users in order to create a large transaction backlog.
