[Colin LeMahieu] Vitalik, your 99% consensus is already in use and development since 5 years now …


Edit:

Controversial discussion below, like the disclaimer said, my own interpretation might be wrong! Come to your own conclusion by reading belows discussion, lots of respect for both sides from me.

Edit 2:

This might warrant further explanation since some guys think I want to discredit any side here.

I’m at one side curious whats behind that claim and on another hand a bit disappointed that two leaders of projects that vastly form our space can’t have a constructive discussion (yes yes I’m demanding! if you bring up such a big topic, follow trought it?).

Now go ahead bash me, yes the title is maybe a bit to sentional / misleading. Can’t change it anymore …

Is the title everything that counts?

Disclaimer:

The post title is my own interepretation, link to original post:

Interestingly that Vitalik doesn’t seem to get in a discussion regarding it, ignoring Colin so far.

It’s something I didn’t realize so far yet …

Can anyone elaborate on the technical differences of Vitaliks consensus or Colins claim?

[Audio] The King’s Coiner & Master of the Mint – 2 BBC Plays covering Isaac Newton’s last 30 years of his life as Master of the Royal Mint


# [The King’s Coiner](https://archive.org/details/KingsCoinerThe) by [Philip Palmer](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Palmer) – Aired Tues Apr 23, 2003 – 1 45 min broadcast –

*For the last 30 years of his life, Sir Isaac Newton was Master of the* [*Royal Mint*](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Mint)*, a* [*job he took very seriously*](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton#Later_life)*. In the late 1690s, he became actively involved in the pursuit of coiners, those who forged currency, and in particular pursued* [*William Challoner*](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Chaloner)*, a forger with friends in high places. (He was eventually hung drawn and quartered for his crimes.)*

*This play imagines their battle.*

*The fact of Sir Isaac Newton being made Master of the Mint and his pursuit of a notorious forger was dealt with in an earlier play “The King’s Coiner”, a play which I found more satisfactory than this new play, though others may care to compare the two.*

Food for intelligent thought : BTC mining revenue down ~95% from peak. Likewise, either Bitmain (et al) have sold twice as many miners as they ever had in 2018 vs all years prior, or someone is utilizing a lot of Secret ASIC. PoW chg is pain management.

Here is my bank instalment related to the loan I took to invest in crypto. Still 3 and half years to go until I’m freed. Until then, I’m working for nothing and I’m at 85% loss. I hope it gives you a lesson.
