For anyone who still hasn't seen this, here is Peter Rizun and Andrew Stone presenting their research on how to do 1 gigabyte blocks, all the way back in 2017 at the Scaling Bitcoin Conference. The BTC camp has known we can scale bitcoin on-chain for years, they just don't want to hear it.
I have to say, the level of disrespect is outstanding. The conference started off with a joke on 'bcash' and also joked about BitcoinXT, bitcoin classic and bitcoin unlimited in the same sentence. For a conference which clearly made a statement that this is about engineering and not politics, the satirical content was up there. Then when the bitcoin unlimited team spoke, you could pretty much feel the tension in the air. Pretty sure only Tony got to ask a few questions out of spite, and I'm glad question time got cut. Well done BU team and nchain on the hard work proving we can scale on chain.
Thoughts on day 1 of the Milan Scaling Bitcoin conference.
I just got back from day one of the conference. Everybody else went to a bar to drink and eat, but since I'm still jet lagged I came back to my hotel to get some rest. I was also at the "Satoshi's Vision" conference about 2 weeks ago, and the two conferences are very different in many ways. First off, the vibe here seems much more social. It seems that most people that are here are well connected socially. There are hardly any "loners" here. Contrast this to the Satoshi's Vision conference where most people there had never met anyone else there before. During the presentations, a lot of people seem to be not paying very much attention. A lot of people are on their computers and not really listening to the speakers. I also hear a lot of chatting amongst the attendees. At the Satoshi's Vision conference, I got the feeling most people were there to listen to the speakers, and social fraternizing was not on the top of anyone's reasons for being there. During the breaks, everyone would go outside to the snack tables and chat with each other. There is a lot of chatter. Everyone is talking with everyone else, and there is a high level of noise. When I say "noise" I don't mean people are being loud, the noise comes from so many people talking. After the break is over, people file back into the conference room, and the speaker has to quiet down the crowd before the speakers can begin. "Ladies and Gentlemen, can I have your attention.... We would like to get started....Can I have your attention..... Please everyone get seated.... Please take your seats we are about to get started". I don't mean to be demeaning, but it kind of reminds me of school children coming inside after recess. It takes a while for people to calm down and get ready to listen, everyone's conversations continue until the MC can get everyone to shut up. Maybe this is a function of the Scaling Bitcoin convention being much larger (almost 10x as many people are here as there were at Satoshi's Vision). The content of the presentations seem to be loosely scaling related. Maybe Day 2 will have more scaling content, but today hardly any scaling content. For some reason, there was a lot of talks on fungibility and there was even a presentation on Timestamping. What does timestamping have to do with scaling? It seems like these Scaling Bitcoin" conferences are turning into general bitcoin presentations, not strictly scaling related. This is a stark contrast to the first Scaling Bitcoin conference which was pretty much completely blocksize limit proposals (BIP100, BIP101, BIP102, etc). Also, it seems that there is very little new information coming from the presentations. The LN talks sounds like every previous talk on the LN. The Sidechain presentation sounded like it could have been the exact same presentation given 3 years ago. Very little progress seems to have been made in these areas. At least at Hong Kong segwit was announced, which added an air of excitement. This time around there isn;t hardly any excitement for any breakthrough. Overall, the day was pretty boring. I'm not particularly interested in making friends here, as I'm not interested in BTC for social reasons. I'm only here to feel the vibe and get a more close up look at everything plays out.
