Great idea for a general, maxi here.
To me, maxi means that there’s only room for one base layer, store of value crypto currency, and that is bitcoin (btc), not just because it was first but because it is perfect.
That said, by saying I’m a btc maxi, I’m obviously not against other layers on top, addressing other use cases. I’m not against lightning. I’m not against some derivative fund investing in btc. I’m not against someone building a successful e-commerce site on top of bitcoin.
In the same way I’m not against a smart contract layer on top of bitcoin. If this layer is eth or something else remains to be seen, but currently eth seems to have the upper hand. Good on Vitalik.
Similarly, I’m all for another layer of Oracles feeding the smart contracts, and here I have to say I’m really rooting for Sergey - I can’t help but like the guy! And I think Chainlink is making all the right moves. Investing in Chainlink is more like investing in a company than investing in btc, which is investing in math, but it’s nevertheless an attractive, smart company in my opinion, better than tesla and with a better share model (link tokens, which are like shares that can be used for something).
So I’m 80% btc, 10% eth (a little reluctantly) and 10% link (happily), am I correct in still thinking myself a btc maxi?
I mean, I also have tesla shares.

I really don't understand the point of his "universal computer" or whatever it is he calls it. They tried running CryptoKitties on it and the whole system ground to a halt. Also, there doesn't seem to be any limit on inflation -- I thought it was 3% per year but then read an article saying last year they had so much traffic it was 10%. WTF, why buy into something that inflates faster than USD? Then there's the whole "science experiment" aspect to ETH -- sure, we're gonna build something new and then hard fork and everyone has to migrate, yay! Oh no, someone hacked our code, gotta hard fork to undo those transactions, no problem! Hey I had a great idea let's make it have tapdancing robots and we'll just hard fork, cool!

And I DON'T think there is room for more than one. Despite all the "we built a model and it's going to moon" shitposting, IMHO the real value of a unit of any crypto is directly related to its use in the real economy. Sure, some groups can artificially pump their price by limiting the exchanges they trade on and then buying and selling furiously to inflate volumes at their preferred prices, but those will eventually run out of cash to burn and will die.

For real value, whether Chinese capital flight or Russian oligarchs or Americans buying porn, the use in the real economy is what drives the price. More than one successful crypto just means both will have to share that real-world usage. If one eventually dominates, the other dies. And sitting on any crypto, just buying and hodling, means it will go unused in the real world and will die.

But that leads back to my first point, 66% of the miners are in china. China can nationalize the bitcoin miners whenever they want. Bitcoin is centralized in china. China can 51% bitcoin whenever they want. Doesn't that concern you?

Otherworldly reminder that Satoshi marketed Bitcoin as a "Peer to Peer Electronic Cash System" because the only way people would adopt it at first was if it was considered day to day money and not a store of wealth like gold. He knew that peoples perception of it would transition as time went on. Case in point, if it were meant as a normal everyday cash why only make 21 Million and deflationary?

The hashrate and 51% attacks comes from the miners though. You also don't get to "fork" them out, they mine on whatever network is most profitable to mine. The miners have control of the network. Its not a good sign when you don't actually know these things

The simple fact that they have the ability to render it worthless at anytime is in itself valuable. There could be any number of reasons why they might do it but the mere fact that they can should give you concern.
It effectively means they are in control of it, they can double spend, they can rewrite and reroute transactions.

It doesn't matter why, they can. The fact that they can is the important part. The fact that they can defeats the entire purpose of bitcoin as a peer to peer decentralized digital currency because that means the decentralization is a facade.

The ethereum experiment lead to some interesting financial tools such as flash loans, liquidity pools, yield farming, etc. but ethereum isn't the end all be all.

The reason the "handbrake" is pulled is to secure its decentralization... with the 1mb blocks, more actors can participate, when you increase the blocks in favor of "Removing the handbrake" you cause centralization.

so its a choice of, decentralization vs fast payments..
and payments are no problem, we have visa, paypal, ripple etc...
its a decentralized, permission-less store of value is what we are concerned with..

Are you concerned your gold can't go fast?

That's literally impossible as they are mining bitcoin FOR PROFIT. Guess what happens if they act benevolently at cost to themselves? They go out of business and that benevolent miner is GONE.

bitcoin will be capable of more with 1mb block then any bch fork with 10gb blocks.

Bitcoin is the longest running chain, and that depends on what the miners think/vote is.

Please tell me why it isn't money, have you even spent more than an hour studying money? do you have a hard time playing chess and thinking about abstract things? If you don't think bitcoin is money stay poor, keep using other "money"

>Bitcoin doesn't waste power, it consumes power waste.
this is btw the most important revelation one can make about bitcoin sustainability.
bitcoin can literally save our planet from environmental disaster.

it allows for building overcapacity of clean and sustainable power sources (nuclear and renewable) and allows to store that situational overcapacity representing stored economic power in digital currency.

we could ditch coal and gas buffer plants which are responsible for half the pollution world wide.

this is a more well rounded definition and the main reason why bitcoin is not money and never could be money:
>money is a currency that is legal tender
>currency is a unit of account and a medium of exchange
>medium of exchange must be portable and durable
>unit of account must be fungible and divisible

Say bitcoin is no longer profitable to mine. What happens?

miners stop mining. Its unprofitable to do so.
Transactions crawl to a standstill until the difficulty adjustment happens. It becomes profitable again, and the miners turn their facility back on and mine the easier bitcoin. The people who stayed to mine the difficult bitcoin are not rewarded for staying. Difficulty adjusts again, its now no longer profitable. Miners leave again, transactions crawl to a standstill, etc.

Back and forth it gets to oscillate until the benevolent miners are completely pushed out because they mine the difficult bitcoin while the opportunistic miners mine the easy bitcoin, in between periods where transaction fees and times are absurd until one day transactions just don't go through, the difficulty adjustment never happens, and bitcoin dies.

a 51% "attack" is not an exploit on a network you brainlet. a 51% attack is perfectly by the book playing by the rules operation on the network.

if your shitcoin can be 51-ed it's worthless not because the consensus rules can be broken but because transaction history is not final.
