Shower thought: BCH's big block approach is like, when there's a need for more people to travel on the same road, having car manufacturers build cruise ship sized cars just because you want to keep your roads with only one lane. BTC's second layer is simply building more lanes once and for all, so small car manufacturers won't go out of business (not everyone can afford producing cruise ship sized cars).
Goes without saying that nowadays those big cars are almost empty
Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.
We're going to live in a very weird world man.
PayNyms are cool. I used to think they were just a niche implementation of a BIP who had a very marginal use case but... It's kind of the same concept of payment channels that LN uses, minus the routing to other nodes but without the channel balance problems. Useful for private and frequent transactions between two specific parties (eg. when you get paid by your employer, paying rent to your landlord and more)
@samourai_official of course is always ahead of the curve.
Good summary of the BCH/Bitmain situation
