“The arguments have devolved over three or four years of bitter debate, the principles are real and they are important to preserve, but a lot of the drama has nothing to do with principles anymore. A lot of this debate is now more about hurt feelings. It’s about bruised egos. It’s about things that were said that can’t be unsaid, insults that were exchanged, and personalities and ego.”


Bitcoin is the world’s first cryptocurrency which works on a completely decentralized network known as the blockchain. The blockchain network consists a link of blocks that are secured using cryptography and record all the transactions. Bitcoin was first presented to the world in 2009 by an anonymous identity known as Satoshi Nakamoto. As Bitcoin works on a decentralized network, it is completely free from the involvement of third-party financial institutions or central banks. The Bitcoin blockchain facilitates instant peer-to-peer transactions at minimum transactions fees required to maintain the network. The total number of Bitcoins is fixed at 21 million with its smallest unit being referred to as Satoshi. Each Satoshi represents a hundred millionth part of Bitcoin which means that 100,000,000 Santoshi = 1 BTC. Additional Bitcoins are generated by a process known as mining. Bitcoins are mined by professional miners solving complex computational equations. For each Bitcoin mined, the miners are rewarded with either more coins or transaction fees. The miners also validate all transactions on the Bitcoin network as well as look after the network security. Bitcoin can be exchanged with fiat currencies or other digital currencies. There are over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepting Bitcoin all over the world.


To keep the block generation time equal to ten minutes on average, both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash use an algorithm adjusting the mining difficulty parameter. This algorithm is called the difficulty adjustment algorithm (DAA). Originally, both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash used the same difficulty adjustment algorithm, adjusting the mining difficulty parameter every 2016 blocks. Since 1 August 2017, Bitcoin Cash also used an addition to the DAA, called an Emergency Difficulty Adjustment (EDA) algorithm. EDA was used alongside the original DAA and it was designed to decrease the mining difficulty of Bitcoin Cash by 20%, if the time difference between 6 successive blocks was greater than 12 hours.[36]


Peer to peer (P2P) electronic cash is simply described as online money sent from one person to another without the need for a trusted third-party. As described in the original Bitcoin whitepaper by Satoshi Nakamoto, P2P cash makes use of digital signatures as part of the solution, but the main benefits are lost if a trusted third party is still required to prevent fraud. This makes P2P cash a trustless and safe way to transact without the need of intermediaries.


Bitcoin Cash trades on digital currency exchanges including Bitstamp,[30] Coinbase,[31] Gemini,[32] Kraken,[33] Bitfinex, and ShapeShift using the Bitcoin Cash name and the BCH ticker symbol for the cryptocurrency. On 26 March 2018, OKEx removed all Bitcoin Cash trading pairs except for BCH/BTC, BCH/ETH and BCH/USDT due to "inadequate liquidity".[5] As of May 2018, daily transaction numbers for Bitcoin Cash are about one-tenth of those of bitcoin.[5]


The split originated from what was described as a "civil war" in two competing bitcoin cash camps.[18][29] The first camp, supported by entrepreneur Roger Ver and Jihan Wu of Bitmain, promoted the software entitled Bitcoin ABC (short for Adjustable Blocksize Cap) which would maintain the block size at 32MB.[29] The second camp led by Craig Steven Wright and billionaire Calvin Ayre put forth a competing software version Bitcoin SV, short for "Bitcoin Satoshi's Vision," that would increase the block size limit to 128MB.[26][29]


EDA adjustments caused instabilities in mining difficulty of the Bitcoin Cash system, resulting in Bitcoin Cash being thousands of blocks ahead of Bitcoin. To address the problem with stability, a change of the Bitcoin Cash DAA was implemented and the EDA cancelled. The change took effect on 13 November 2017. After the change, the Bitcoin Cash DAA adjusts the mining difficulty after each block. To calculate the difficulty for a new block, the Bitcoin Cash DAA uses a moving window of last 144 blocks.[36]

So, Reppo. You wanted to talk-the-tech if my instincts are correct? Friends and I are designing a 8 layers stack module based off the Avalon's A3255 55nm mining chip with a fpga/firmware (source borrowed). This incorporate the full trading bot machine learning and TA indicator accelerators, and of course a crypto wallet secured by a custom AVR. We're down to 1.694AMP per hashboard (14chips each x 5 =70).

Bitcoin mining saps energy, costly, uses more power and also the reward delays. For mining, run software, get your wallet ready and be the first to solve a cryptographic problem and you get your reward after the new blocks have been added to the blockchain.Mining is said to be successful when all the transactions are recorded in the blockchain and the new blocks are added to the blockchain.


Bitcoin Cash was launched in August 2017, as a direct response to small block sizes on the Bitcoin code. 1MB block sizes were not meeting the demand of the growing community, so a group of dissatisfied crypto enthusiasts decided to create a ‘hard fork’ of the Bitcoin blockchain, with an increased 8MB block size. No one person currently takes credit for the token’s creation; rather it is attributed to a de-centralized group of developers.


There are two factions of bitcoin supporters, that support large blocks or small blocks.[20] The Bitcoin Cash faction favors the use of its currency as a medium of exchange for commerce while the Bitcoin-supporting faction view bitcoin's primary use as that of a store of value.[20] Some Bitcoin supporters like to call Bitcoin Cash “Bcash,” “Btrash,” or simply a scam, while Bitcoin Cash advocates insist that their implementation is the pure form of Bitcoin.[20]


  而 Jamal 是个不折不扣的理想主义者。他善良而执着,对 Latika 一直不肯放弃。 Salim 在火车上数钱的时候, Jamal 脑子里想的都是 Latika ,兄弟俩的人生观一目了然。演员 Dev Patel 现实中也是只有 18 岁,有人说 Jamal 看起来太单薄,跳起舞来都是长手长脚的。但是这有什么关系呢?外型虽然薄弱,意志却无比坚强。 开头被拷打时,胖警察报告审了他一夜,除了名字什么都没问出来——“ He’s a tough guy.” 他的长官说“ What the hell can a slumdog possibly know” 的时候,背后被电晕的 Jamal 吐了一口血:“ The answers.” 这个镜头,我印象非常深刻。 18 岁的 Jamal Malik 因为这种坚强而显得格外性感。如果说这部电影是个童话,那也一定是因为 Jamal 这种近似不可能的执着和坚持,而不是男女主人公的离奇爱情故事。选不出“ Truth Alone Triumphs.” 的 Jamal ,他的人生故事却是这句话的完美诠释。 如果 Salim 是那个社会的代表型人物, Jamal 就是印度人民的精神象征,这就解释了为什么 Jamal 的天真善良和理想主义是理所当然的,也解释了为什么 Jamal 赢大奖后人们都为他兴奋欢呼。


When people talk about the price of Bitcoin, they are referring to the current price at which Bitcoin is changing hands. Since Bitcoin is a purely speculative asset, this price is determined by how little sellers are willing to charge and how much buyers are willing to pay. Even then, the price of Bitcoin can vary across exchanges like Coinbase and Binance or currencies because of market inefficiencies


第二次矛盾,当萨利姆和贾马尔被诱拐到了马曼所开的“孤儿院”时,萨利姆凭借自己的勇敢和聪慧,成为了孩子王,也同时被马曼看上,选择为他自己的爪牙。在萨利姆把一群流浪儿管理得服服帖帖的时候,他与广大的孤儿产生了不可避免的矛盾,而与贾马尔的矛盾也是必然的。编剧在设计他们之间的矛盾时,使用了拉提卡,把她放到了矛盾的冲突点和制高点上,使拉提卡再一次成为贯穿主线的人物。萨利姆想要把婴儿交给拉提卡带,说:“拉提卡,今天你负责带他”,拉提卡说:“我不带”,这时候,萨利姆的权威受到了质疑,作为一个小头头,他一定要让拉提卡服从,于是他说:“抱着吧,这是为你好,有小孩可以要双份。”冲突产生了,萨利姆的命令和拉提卡的意愿产生了矛盾,这时出面的,就是既喜欢拉提卡,又是萨利姆弟弟的贾马尔,他在这两人中, 始终保持着微妙的关系。贾马尔说:“她说了不想带。”当时的贾马尔,决对不是萨利姆的对手,而且萨利姆也必须以牺牲弟弟的利益,才能在孩子中树威,所以,他斩钉截铁地说:“你少说话,贾马尔,接着,不然我把他扔了。”这样,迫使拉提卡接受了萨利姆的建议,再一次的争锋中,萨利姆的名利观战胜了兄弟情。
