Hey, I’m a big dummy, somebody help me understand this. Take a look at the blockchain explorer right now. A lot of smaller transactions, and then occasionally you get some big ones. It seems like for the blocks that are >1MB Taal is mining about 80% of those blocks. Taal has close to a 100% rate for the ones that are >10MB. How can this be? It doesn’t seem like the size of the block should have any effect on whether or not the block gets mined? What is Taal doing here? My best guess is that

Libs, this is a wonderful product This isn't particularly exciting or impressive but I used the Bitpost RSS feed to build a custom Gatsby blog. I've been playing around with JAMstack lately, and I'm strongly considering Bitpost as an alternative to something like Netlify CMS or Strapi. I think some clients would be really excited about it. I have a feature request: slug support. Being able to define a slug would add a lot of consistency to the views. I'd like to be able to retrieve slugs thr

Most things on the internet have been free for about as long as they’ve existed, and most BSV business models are entirely “What if you paid money for an inferior version of this formerly free product?”

The Rise of the Philosopher King
We’re seeing a fundamental change in the way the world is led. This is the great story of our time. It’s happening now, it’s all around us. People in open source or the Bitcoin space tend to understand this shift better than most, but it isn’t just a

In other words, you can generate an http request simply by submitting a transaction. This means you don't have to speak to a server directly in order to communicate through the bitcoin network. It also means that a computer could generate HTTP requests without ever being connected to the internet. The real question is... How long until it's actually cheaper to make the requests this way? Could it be that way already?

I think HandCash has had great innovation in UI for wallets, but I’ve heard reports of lost funds for quite some time. I wouldn’t keep large amounts in ANY web or hosted wallet. I treat HandCash and to some extent money button as hot wallets, open source self run solutions as warm wallets, and paper wallets as cold wallets. BSV’s open source culture is not as strong as many crypto projects have been in the past, and I think it’s a hinderance, not a help.

My thought is that it would be advantageous to not have to run redaction logic (get list, get redactions, redact redactions from list) at the endpoint level -- but maybe that's for another protocol

Should there be a protocol for redactions? e.g. removing items from a bitfeed? Would that be more appropriate for a "second layer" protocol?

Feature request: An ellipses at the end of comment preview/excerpts, and in general, more visual indication that a post is expandable. (perhaps darker text, the word "expand" instead of "more", or something along those lines. I just find myself missing content sometimes because I don't realize there's more to the post

Small bug report : When you embed posts like @unwriter did here, the comments button stops being clickable. Also, in the process of making this post, I copy and pasted a URL into the "link a post" box (rather than a transaction ID), and it disabled the text entry box so that I couldn't fix it. https://powping.com/posts/eb832731b6fb91e710466ed1bc8e3e356aee4a283d2da78314a6f1b4a200f35b

As a user, I like powping because I don't have to register -- I can just sign in with Moneybutton and everything works right off the bat. I like that there's both long and short form content, and that if I blog from powpress it's not locked into the platform. (though I admit I haven't done this yet. I also think the community is really interesting, and seems to really value positive interaction. As somebody who's interested in the technology, powping is fascinating. unwriter is a sharp guy and

Rethink EVERYTHING. In the future, you won't pay an ISP -- you'll pay for access to a Bitcoin full node. Content will be cached algorithmically based on how frequently it is accessed. Instead of paying hosting, sites can cover the costs of maintaining servers based on a payment channel model, similar to WeatherSV. High traffic sites can earn income based on how frequently people visit their website. The whole system of monthly payment models / subscriptions becomes obselete, as does ad revenue.

This is a great point but... conceding that the fires could be stopped with proper management would also involve acknowledging that they are not caused by global warming! And we can't have that!

This might be a little bit off in the weeds, but Bitfeed seems like it'd be a great way to manage a bitcoin-hosted webpage. The biggest issue with hosting a site completely on-chain at the moment is the fact that changing a page would require updating DNS records (or some equivalent). With Bitfeed, you could just point your DNS at a server which renders the html file published by a certain Bitfeed, and then any updates pushed to the feed could be rendered on the new version of the site in realti

I don't agree with this at all. There's no reason that people shouldn't make money from their work -- but people can already publish work from powpress onto those platforms and retain a paywall. Something common to all of the platforms that you already mentioned is that *none of them are actually successful*. As you said, Bitcoin solves this inherently.

Here's a joke that I wrote: A rabbi stands on a beach, looking out at the sunset. A priest approaches him. The priest says "Rabbi, what are you doing?" The rabbi responds: "I'm waiting for the Messiah to come." The priest says "Rabbi, haven't you heard? Yeshua came, died for our sins, and saved the world!" The Rabbi says "Wow, that's remarkable. That's amazing! What do we do now?" and the priest puts his arm on the rabbi's shoulder, turns to the sun which is setting over the ocean, and says "No

I'd love to see somebody make an on-chain archive of Powping. (I wonder if that's in the works...) But seeing how well it functions has absolutely made me rethink apps. Paradoxically, because it's not a limited ecosystem, it's already more open than competitors.
