it's sobering that richard heart asserts bitcoin is at the TOP of its S curve

@Alex_Linder
Pardon my ignorance, but I assume this is a good thing for adoption of Bitcoin. Or no?

@bigbrother1066 no, the opposite. s curve refers to adoption. the basic question is whether we're early on that curve or late. he's saying late. most say we're early. he says no that's wrong, bitcoin is 13 years old, outdate technology. hex and others are better. that's his argument. look up S curve.

@Alex_Linder
I'm just curious. What do you personally think?

@bigbrother1066 what i personally think is what i've said - that he has induced in me serious wonder regarding technical ways of overcoming the 21m, which is the same as killing bitcoin. that's why i want him directly discussing the matter with top bitcoin minds. how exactly can the 21m be altered? this is where the jew pressure will come into play, it doesnt matter that none of the folks will mention jews, this is a purely technical question which i dont have answer to yet. we know the politics

@Alex_Linder @bigbrother1066 some dude on the fed answered this. Basically that would be a hard fork and the "true btc" would be the valuable one and the new one with inflation something else

@Someguy @bigbrother1066 anyone can fork bitcoin at any point, that doesnt change anything. ver tried it. he failed. he's another that heart has done a go-round with, i had forgotten that. i like ver but heart is more presuasive.

if there is a way to leverage pressure on miners or whatever council makes decisions on bitcoin development, that is where it will get jewed. add to that what heart is saying, it's already huge-minority owned by a bunch of rich VC types, not by ordinary people.

@Alex_Linder @bigbrother1066 it would be like btc 2 and btc retro and one could say no thanks I'll go with retro even if it's only 10 percent of what it was.

@Someguy @bigbrother1066 lots of people have done that and it hasnt worked. in a nutshell, bitcoin's people dont want it to develop. and that is a fair statement of their position. those who want to develop something created ethereum, cardano, hex and others. like heart says, they would have built on bitcoin if they could. but the wizards opted for security and decentralization at the cost of all other needs and values. yet then they whine that anyone else comes in to supply those by new coins!

We really would benefit from hearing Keiser and/or Saylor debate Heart. I don't know if that is likely to happen.
