  1. I swear Mr. H I dont trust anyone else when it comes to BTC. All these other “altcoins” can suck it!
    BTC is the REAL DEAL! Everyone knows it.

  2. We have learnt a lot from this Breaking Bitcoin conference. We need 2 development teams that work independently of each other on two independent reference clients. I was becoming very suspicious of Bitcoin in that it may have been infiltrated by state Intelligence services. Thanks to JJ i have changed my mind. Intelligence services work in cells. Each cell has no idea what the other is up to. They would never make a mistake like this. Lets hope we have all learnt from this. That’s if state actors don’t try to take down the network before the release of Bitcoin-qt 0.15

    Ethereum have 2 reference clients Geth and Parity. This makes for a much better security approach. It makes for good security to have two independent clients. Lets have two independent teams too and keep development decentralized. That is unless you want a single point of failure.

  3. If I was in China, I’d think now would be the time to buy Bitcoin to make sure you’re “in”. However, you never know w/ their government controls, they could track down the people who bought it. Tough call. Good thing there is everywhere else.

  4. You’re a really good host Thomas. You do it really well.
    Always wonder why you wish a currency good morning at the start!

  5. I like how one guy makes one good point about Segwit2x being invalid due to BCash fork (which happened 40 days ago) and now suddenly everyone freaks out and agrees 😀
