The dogma built up by various schools of thought in Bitcoin has led quite a few people to start confusing opinions with facts.

@deadalnix Surely you agree that the magnitude of the malleability problem is a matter of perspective.

@TaylorGerring @crainbf Yep, more and more use cases getting priced off the blockchain. See my recent tweet about mining payouts for example

@crainbf @TaylorGerring Indeed, but neither is Bitcoin a normal system. Data scarcity doesn’t really exist in other payment systems.

@ARKblockchain There is no signaling from full nodes because that’s subject to a Sybil attack. It’s just a flag day soft fork.

@theblackmarble @ARKblockchain I’d prefer that not happen, but it’s a fundamental feature of the system that you can’t change.

@rogerkver AFAIK other malleability fixes require a hard fork and no Bitcoin wallets actually support them; would take longer to deploy…

@djinnius It gets complicated and depends on how “safe” of a hard fork is being attempted. I’d suggest hashpower follows economic power.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to djinnius

@djinnius A hard fork is when a set of people decides to agree to a new set of non-backward compatibles rules. Anyone can do that.

@djinnius Miners don’t dictate the rules; read the “balance of power” section here: coindesk.com/bitcoins-secur…
