Have anyone demonstrated that LN can work with billion users? You don't need any complex technology to simulate LN users opening and using channels.

iPhone is a supercomputer by 1989 standards, not a phone. You can buy a cell phone for about $10, if you just want to call. iPhone 11 can do more operations per second that fastest supercomputer in 1989, by a large margin.

project there's always an early fan. And he's likely to be a guy who worked on something similar. So whoever Satoshi was, a guy like Hal getting involved early on is very likely. On the other hand, sending a first transaction to yourself under different name would be pretty

Satoshi posted a whitepaper he got very interested. He made comments on metzworld mailing list, becoming basically the first supporter of the idea, and he was the first to test it. There's absolutely nothing mysterious here, there's a very simple explanation. For a successful

Just some guy who is not famous and is not currently involved. Likely somebody who has academic background (possibly just a CS degree) but was not working as a programmer professionally. Hal was working on a similar idea (PoW used for mining, but not consensus) and as soon as

makes no sense. So it's definitely not Hal. Also not Wei Dai, as Wei Dai is a known programming pro.

it is not just a different style, it is like getting rid of hygiene and good practices. Not separating core code from UI is something which cripples your software, so why would you do that? That's like stopping to brush your teeth to make it harder for people to recognize you -

mixes together GUI and core code. You just don't. A ZIP file with no directory structure, just a bunch of C++ files screams "I am a software outsider". No professional C/C++ programmer would do that. I know people say that maybe Hal was using a different style on purpose, but

Hal is definitely not Satoshi. If you knew how to code it would be obvious. Hal released a Bitcoin-like system called RPOW before Bitcoin, and it was coded in a very different style. You don't go from a portable, nicely-structured C code to some WIndows-only C++ mess which

FWIW Lem didn't like 1972 movie either: "Lem went as far as to say that Tarkovsky made Crime and Punishment rather than Solaris, omitting epistemological and cognitive aspects of his book."

What's the difference between "the state" and "the biggest military"?

"property rights" and start "taxing" people nearby. Is that how you see "natural" rights emerging in absence of a state?

Are you saying that without a state somebody could 'emerge' his property rights over river? Who exactly can do that? Rivers are long, you know. How a dispute over who owns a river will be resolved? I would guess a guy with the biggest paramilitary support will assert his

There's a large number of bank failures: Banks fail all the time. I'm yet to see a Bitcoin failure. Yes, Bitcoin won't save failing banks. It will replace them. Anyway, if you prefer to keep your savings in a bank in a period of increasing global

If BTC hits $75k it might be a symptom of a failing financial system. Would you like to end up with fiat money 'bags' stuck in failing banks?

If somebody ignores security concerns, isn't it a good idea to bring attention of a wider audience to this?
