Bigger Bitcoin: Keep bitcoin in the hands of the people!

This subreddit is for discussion of removing the bitcoin blocksize cap. We support forking away from BitFury, BTCC, and Blockstream as they are part of a plan to hijack and subvert bitcoin into a bank-controlled settlement layer. Our goal is to preserve bitcoin as originally described in the Satoshi whitepaper.

What are the chances of Vertcoin on Coinbase 2018? (And no I'm not crazy)

I'm not trying to start any rumours but thought you guys might like to offer your input on the idea of Vtc being listed on coinbase.
It is widely anticipated that coinbase will add additional currencies this year and whilst everyone is looking at Ripple, Monera, Dash and Neo, etc I'm wondering if Vtc might be an outside bet.
Why? Many reasons. 1. Vtc fits all the Coinbase currency requirements: Decentralisation, differing technology (asic resistance), no pre-mine, etc. 2. Vtc mentioned 10 exchange listings in 2018. They also mentioned NDAs are in place when discussing exchanges. Surely they would only mention this for big exchanges. Binance and Bitfinex are the other obvious alternatives of course. 3. Vertbase and Vertpig. Now I know these are startups and won't truly be competitors to the mighty Coinbase but maybe they are aware of the projects and just maybe they see the idea of Vertcoin-based fiat gateways as a threat. How do you deal with a threat? Squash the idea before it gets out of hand. 4. Legacy: Vertcoin is really old by altcoin standards. It has lasted this long and if we're honest, is probably closer to Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper than Bitcoin is today.
So that's what I've got. Do I present a good case or am I in dreamland :-)

Regarding the 'double spend' problem

Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper highlighted how Blockchain eliminates the 'double spend' problem by having a transparent, distributed ledger for transactions.
The wording around this double spend 'problem' made me curious, and I believe it could be taken two ways.
Firstly, it displays an attempt to safe-proof the new technology; it shows that this new digital currency is actually viable by being resistant to tampering. But it then leads one to question whether this wording was also used in an effort to show how an existing problem of double spending can be solved.
That got me thinking, could this double spending issue be widespread in the traditional, centralised Banking systems? I'm not tech-savvy enough to understand the systems upon which these fiat transactions are facilitated, but I assume they're not run on anything decentralised like Blockchain - certainly not yet, at least.
Therefore, is it possible for large Banks to get away with double spending of transactions? If so, have there ever been any notable cases where this was executed and exposed?

11-12 01:02 - 'A scaling compromise might not be what Bitcoin wants, but it is what Bitcoin needs' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/BlTCORN removed from /r/Bitcoin within 1-11min

'''
I understand I will get a lot of hate for posting this, but please hear me out. Before I continue, I should identify myself as a long term investor that has always been an advocate of bigger blocks. However, one thing has become very clear to me: Bitcoin Cash is bad for Bitcoin, if not deadly. If miners continue to turn their support to Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin, market chaos is a very real possibility.
Let’s review why the 2x fork is so controversial. The way I see it, there are two major sides: one side wants Bitcoin to scale via bigger blocks, the other wants Bitcoin to scale via Segregated Witness. The primary advocates of bigger blocks are miners, who will benefit from more transactions settling on chain and from more users joining the network due to an immediate reduction of fees and increase in speed. The primary advocates of staying at 1 MB blocks are Core developers, who see SegWit as the only long term scaling solution and argue that the blockchain will get bloated if the block size increases.
However, there is a big problem with SegWit that is rarely brought up here: businesses are showing little to no effort in implementing it. Instead, most of them find it easier to implement other cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin Cash, for example) that already have lower fees and faster transactions. Until this changes, a vast majority of Bitcoin users are left only transacting on the main chain with high fees and slow confirmations. This benefits neither miners nor users.
The fear of SegWit failing to satisfy the need to scale was a big reason the [NYA agreement]1 was signed back in May. The NYA was a compromise. Many of the biggest businesses, miners, and developers in the Bitcoin industry compromised that the best way to scale Bitcoin was to please both sides: implement SegWit, then also scale the block size to 2 MB a few months later. The first part of the compromise was fulfilled, the second has just been suspended.
An important thing to understand is how the 'true Bitcoin' has been determined since its inception. If you read Satoshi's [Bitcoin whitepaper]2 , he states several times that Bitcoin is the blockchain with the longest chain, i.e. the most PoW and hashpower. This is why Bitcoin is Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin Cash. This is also why Coinbase and Gemini exchanges had no choice but to leave the fork naming scheme up for the market to decide. This point is often overlooked but is important because it highlights the significance of Bitcoin miners.
Whether users and Core developers choose to see it or not, miners are getting increasingly impatient. They see Bitcoin failing to scale and worry that Core developers will limit the blocksize to 1 MB forever. Many mining pools (including the four biggest: AntPool, BTC.top, BTC.com, ViaBTC; which themselves make up over 51% of the hashpower) have already allowed its users to start mining Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin. If the 2x hard fork is really cancelled, I fear we will see more and more miners give up on Bitcoin and start mining Bitcoin Cash. Especially considering the price recently hit another ATH with no signs of slowing up.
Bitcoin Cash gaining significant hashpower will only further the community divide. Two Bitcoins cannot coexist. The confusion for many newcomers (including institutional investors) and businesses would be too large to participate in Bitcoin. We need only one Bitcoin. We need to swallow our pride to prevent a larger community divide. We need miners to be satisfied with Bitcoin, we developers to be satisfied with Bitcoin, and we need users to be satisfied with Bitcoin. Whether the 2 MB update happens at block 494,784 or is revised for a later block, we need to implement a scaling compromise.

Why did Satoshi Nakamoto use "Upload.ae" to upload the pre completed bitcoin whitepaper?

As clearly seen in his email https://www.gwern.net/docs/bitcoin/2008-nakamoto sent 22nd august 2008, why in the heavens would satoshi upload his doc to this upload.ae website? As a UAE resident, i find it very odd for satoshi to end up uploading his doc in such a non relative domain. See upload.ae activity history https://i.imgur.com/Azyrj9M.jpg It was only active 2007/2008 (It was his active years too. May be needed a ready solution as a dev to share something with others like he did in the email). If it was not his domain or a friends domain (unlikely), how did he find about this website? Is there any other scenario/technical reason how he would end up using this website? It had zero traffic and no google results so even if he tried overseas to find a random website to upload something to he would not get this website as a result. Note: In 2008, .ae domains were only buy-able from very limited options mainly the ISP provider of UAE Etisalat. Why did he not use something more anonymous?
