just a rant

Hello Weev,

I mostly agree with you, but I can't like this article.

You haven't even considered any of the criticisms of Bitcoin brought up by M.H., like the scalability issues and the Chinese miners' monopoly on price and Bitcoin popularity. You've just written a rant that doesn't bring anything new to table.

At a glance, altough some of it is F.U.D., I find myself agreeing with most of the points of M.H. (I still have to look into it myself, was hoping you'd do this ;) however his solution is flat-out wrong : letting the miners vote for protocol upgrades is ludicrous !

As I'm writing this, Bitcoin value is in total freefall - one must wonder if it's just the effect of some shitty post by M.H. or if there are larger forces at work (the Chinese governement perhaps ?).

Cheers,

Re: just a rant

Every Jewish media outlet in the world is printing "bitcoin is dead, bitcoin has failed" based on the lies of a guy who isn't even legitimately a Bitcoin developer and you're blaming the Chinese government? You're a fucking retard, brah.
