Fauci Says Attacking Puppy Torture Is An Attack On Science
Here is how much the crusade against climate change will cost: 3% ADDITIONAL inflation on top of whatever is already coming for the next decade, as a result of tens of trillion in QE.
The rich will get richer, the poor will bear the costs

I've said it before and I'll say it again, public services and governments are not qualified to understand the ramifications of not safeguarding citizen ID data. The UK government needs to stop it's various ID proposals and destroying anonymity. Plus encryption isn't optional.

@ChYJtNvw let's break this down. A 1-in 2-out tx weighs 220 bytes (even with taproot). 1000000 txs would weigh 220MB of raw data, which means you'd need a 2Gbps downlink to keep up, and preferably twice as much to propagate transactions to other nodes. Also a 5950x is able to verify ~5000 ecdsa signatures per second depending on the curve and implementation. A far cry from a million.
Who said RPi can do better?
Think twice before calling someone a liar.
@ChYJtNvw Monero has some great concepts in it, but unfortunately has scaling problems that are an order of magnitude more difficult than scaling Bitcoin. Just compare tx size and tx verification time between Bitcoin and Monero. That's at least a 10x problem right there. Another problem (that might have been solved since the last time I checked) was poor auditability of supply due to how range proofs work. Monero also cannot scale at layer 1. No blockchain can.
@ChYJtNvw it's not just about block size, at 1 million TPS my Ryzen 9 5950x with 1 Gbps downlink wouldn't have a chance at keeping up with the network, let alone initial sync. Not to mention world-scale micropayments would inevitably result in a UTXO set of trillions, which is absolutely batshit crazy in a decentralized system.
@ChYJtNvw no what? No, it doesn't produce indistinguishable UTXOs? I've checked and they seem indistinguishable to me. Did you find a way to link pre-mix and post-mix UTXOs? You keep saying something is broken but you don't point out what it is! It's hard to find solutions to undefined problems.
@ChYJtNvw lightning is needed because the real benefits to hyperliquid markets will come when we hit millions of transactions per second - which is physically impossible to handle on broadcast networks (especially Blockchain-based ones).
