A Sovereign Bitcoiner's Manifesto

Yesterday a post of mine got a good amount of attention in this, my favourite, sub. So I have decided to post it here in full...
More than mildly, it annoys us that we have the tools to be truly sovereign and yet we continue to submit our ourselves, and our bitcoin, to centralised authorities.
"Privacy is necessary for an open society in the electronic age"; yet KYC is demanded before we can trade.
"Not your keys, not your coins"; yet millions of bitcoin sit in the vaults of custodial exchanges and wallets.
For monetary liberty to be widespread it must be part of the social contract. We must come together to deploy decentralised systems that maintain Bitcoin's promise of sovereignty. These tools already exist and they are improving.

Awakening Our Inner Apex Predator

When Satoshi genetically engineered bitcoin, he spliced DNA from organisms that never survived (B-money, Hashcash, Bit gold). This gives bitcoin an incredible amount of survivability and fierceness. It makes it the apex predator of money.
Billions of dollars in cryptocurrency is traded, lent and borrowed on platforms that have self-custody and no KYC. Billions of dollars in cryptocurrency but not bitcoin. This decentralised financial system is called DeFi. Many Bitcoiners deny, ignore and attack DeFi because it is an invention, a mutation, that occurred on Ethereum. This reflexive defensiveness ignores a fundamental truth about Bitcoin: If any technology can provide value for Bitcoin, Bitcoin will simply adopt it. A nuanced view of DeFi recognises that it is composed both of valuable decentralisation but also of cancerous ponzis and evolutionary dead-ends. We will adopt DeFi where it improves Bitcoin DID (Defense-in-Depth) and cauterise the rest.

Defense-in-Depth

Bitcoin maintains its sovereignty through technological, cryptographic means. First and foremost, private keys provide the only means of control and ownership. Second, and most famously, Proof of Work defends the network against attack.
Attackers, however, are not limited to attacking the cryptography or the hashpower in order to limit our sovereignty. They route around and seek any weak links. "Trusted third parties are security holes". We increase the perimeter of defence by eliminating these trusted third parties.

Ethereum is Bitcoin’s Testnet

We will splice the DNA of DeFi into Bitcoin. We will increase Bitcoin's defense perimeter. The tools already exist. Ethereum is our testnet. Let it provide the radioactive pool where mutations are many. Let us observe it as it moves fast and breaks things. We will adopt it's best tools and learn to defend against its worst.
Rootstock, a Bitcoin sidechain, can be our CRISPR in this genetic adoption. We will splice the code from Ethereum dapps and improve upon them.

Cypherpunk Rouges

Cypherpunks write code, share code, review code and copy code. Sovereign individuals use this code. Like the X-men's Rouge, Bitcoiners will absorb the superpowers of others. I have been working on a DeFi dapp for decentralised bitcoin trading and lending. Hopefully you will join me, or better yet, compete with me.
"Those who would give up Liberty, to purchase a little temporary convenience, will have neither Liberty nor convenience." That will be our code.
Onwards.

AMA Session with Sergio Lerner

Widely recognized as a leading security and cryptocurrency researcher, and a serial entrepreneur, Sergio Demian Lerner has co-founded several technology companies: RSK Labs, Coinspect, Coinfabrik, ASICBoost, and ATI-Medical. In 2011 he joined the Bitcoin community and collaborated to strengthen the security of the Bitcoin Core by responsible disclosing 9 vulnerabilities. In early 2013, he created QixCoin, the first Turing-complete cryptocurrency. In 2015, he performed one of the first security and design audits of Ethereum and collaborated in the design of the platform. Also in 2015, he designed RSK, the first Bitcoin sidechain. Since 2011 he has proposed more than 70 technical improvements to Bitcoin, Ethereum and RSK, for improved blockchain privacy, interoperability, security, decentralization, scalability, fairness, and latency. For the purposes of this AMA, we would like to focus on RIF and RSK technologies, the relationship between RSK/RIF and platforms like Liquid and Ethereum, RSK merge-mining, the RSK two-way-peg security, current projects in the works, and Sergio’s contributions to Bitcoin.
The AMA will be from Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 10am EST to 12pm EST. We are posting this a few hours ahead of time to allow for questions to get started.

Bitcoin Rootstock, AKA smart Contracts is here ! Lets celebrate this milestone! submitted by Quintall1 to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Rootstock (RSK) & MakerDAO - BTC Question

Rootstock (RSK) as a Bitcoin side-chain is offering the ability to use two way pegged bitcoin (RBTC) in smart contracts that are potentially compatible with Ethereum? RSK has a DAO on it just like MakerDao that plans to use RBTC as collateral for the stable coin they are building out called DOC "Dollar on Chain". If this can be done then we should also be able to offer RBTC as collateral in MCD right>? Do we have plans to work Bitcoin in whatever capacity into MCD at this point in time and if so what are those plans? Anyone with any insight please feel free to chime in, TY!
submitted by FourthStreetx to MakerDAO [link] [comments]

PSA: RSK will be releasing their sidechain on Monday. It will be initially limited to 21 bitcoins. It will be initially federated and later Drivechains!

Rootstock aims to bring smart contracts to bitcoin by using a sidechain so it essentially competes with nEthereum . They claim it will outcompete nEth because it will be more economic.

"Quite honestly, I don't think we should be doing smart contracts on Bitcoin. Bitcoin doesn't do smart contracts, and it doesn't do smart contracts because it does security." - Andreas Antonopoulos

Taken from LTB #414 Live Q&A
Stephanie Murphy: “What's everybody's view on Rootstock (RSK)?”
Andreas M. Antonopoulos: I don't think Rootstock is putting smart contracts on Bitcoin. Rootstock is allowing you to use Bitcoin to pay for smart contracts on the Rootstock Drivechain, which you could theoretically do by shifting money into Ethereum. In fact, recently I saw someone who had built a gateway that allowed you to make a Lightning payment that terminated in an Ethereum contract. So there's many ways to bridge different blockchains together. Quite honestly, I don't think we should be doing smart contracts on Bitcoin. Bitcoin doesn't do smart contracts, and it doesn't do smart contracts because it does security. That's not a trade off I think is worth doing. It's much better to leave that to a chain that has a much more experimental culture and can take bigger risks.
As to whether we can do smart contracts, that's not a binary question; it's a question of value. So can we do smart contracts that can keep $1,000,000 secure? Yes. $10,000,000? Maybe. $100,000,000? No, the DAO proved that. How about now? DAI is doing more, so maybe yes. So it's basically a moving front. As the the maturity of the smart contract ecosystem expands, we can do bigger and bigger stakes (no pun intended) within the smart contract ecosystem. Every now and then there's gonna be a fairly catastrophic failure that's gonna cause a regression in the amounts of money that's put in them. But essentially it's growing. We're proving this every day, and it's the same thing with Bitcoin. The way you measure security in a smart contract or you measure security in a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin is how secure is Bitcoin? X billion dollars. That's the stake that is sitting on it right now, unhacked so far.
BONUS: Bitcoin's security model as block reward approaches 0.
Stephanie Murphy: “Do you think Bitcoin will be able to shift from block rewards to transaction fees to maintain security as the block reward approaches zero?”
Andreas M. Antonopoulos: “This is one of the fundamental misunderstandings and dynamics of mining for most people, which is the idea that something suddenly happens sometime at an undescribed future, either at the next halving or in 2141. The truth is on a daily basis, every single miner in the industry looks at six or seven different factors: the efficiency of their mining equipment, the price of electricity in their local fiat, the cost of their operation system, the current price of Bitcoin in fiat, the reward that's available as a block subsidy, the average amount of fees they can get, and the relative proportion of hashing power. They decide based on all of these factors. Do I leave this specific machine on at its current efficiency, or do I turn it off, or do I point it to another coin? That happens every single day. Every single day that decision continues, it’s rebalancing all of these dynamic factors. So the shift between block subsidy and fees happened every single day since January 3rd 2009 and it continues to happen today.
Sometimes, the capacity of the blockchain, the number of transactions that are in there, the value of the fees mean that it really attracts miners because there's a lot of fees to take. Other times, the fees decrease, the number of transactions decreases, so they're now more reliant on block subsidy and then it swings back and forth and back and forth. It's gonna oscillate in that way all the way to 2141.

Why I still think Ethereum will pass Bitcoin and never look back

I'm in crypto since the birth of BTC. About 2 to 3 years ago, when Ethereum was traded at 1 USD (yes) I moved all my BTC to ETH and didn't look back. From then to now, I've watched my small investment grow to millions in almost no time. I didn't sell a cent, I didn't even move my Eth at all, even after watching it go from 1400 back to 80 usd again. Why? Let me show you one thing.
https://www.reddit.com/ethereum/
This thing. Take a look at this. At any time of the day, at any day of the week. Compare it to https://www.reddit.com/bitcoin, or https://www.reddit.com/btc, or any other subreddit in the world. Tell me any other subreddit that looks like that. While other subreddits spend most of their time and resources on random political discussions, Ethereum keeps silently building the new world economy, and you can watch that, live, on that subreddit.
Have you seen DAI? The fact a fully decentralised stable coin and margin market survived the most extreme crypto winter in history is almost a miracle. You may not remember but that was one of Crypto's biggest flaws and now we have the solution for it. On Ethereum. And it just works.
Have you seen StarkWare? It is easily the most advanced real cryptography company in the world, they're building snarks/starks which are essentially the philosopher's stone of crypto, they subsume and generalize almost every other cryptographic primitive as a single fundamental primitive, and guess where it is being built? Ethereum.
Have you stopped to think how much of the top 100 currencies are Ethereum tokens?
I could go on and on, but the point I'm trying to make is something everyone silently knows. Bitcoiners know it, Bitcoin Cash enthusiasts know it, alternative coin enthusiasts know it. The entire field feels like a shill playground right now, all the loud kids trying to pump their favorite coin, while the "serious adults" work. While progress on every other coin has pretty much stagnated, an entire decentralised economy is being built on Ethereum, right now. What has Bitcoin accomplished in the last 3 years? And what Ethereum has? The most exciting new tech they have is LN, but they forget that there is no point in having an ultra-fast decentralised currency if all services built around it are centralised. And that's exact how things work today: for every centralised Bitcoin service or app, there is a decentralised Ethereum smart contract. Now, take a breath and think honestly: if Satoshi was alive right now, what project would he be proud about?
The only thing that could put doubt on my mind that Ethereum will soon take the first place is if we had another smart-contract project capable of competing with it. And what we got? EOS, fully centralised. Cardano, a beautiful project, but still vaporwar'ish; even if it delivers innovation, it has 2-3 years of dapp-development / network effect to catch up, which will probably not happen, since Ethereum can easily adopt any of its innovations anyway. Rootstock failed to deliver. What else? Nothing. Despite many attempts, it is clear nobody managed to put a competition to Ethereum.
As soon as Ethereum starts showing clear signs of strength, it isn't stopping. It almost passed Bitcoin once, and it is clearly a matter of time until it does. I have no doubt of that. That's why I didn't touch a single coin I hold: as long as Ethereum is still behind BTC, I know there is room to growth. Surely, if it passes Bitcoin tomorrow, it'll still be far from its ATH. But that's my personal benchmark. As soon as news start noticing about "what is this Ethereum thing that everyone is talking about", then I know it is time to sell some of my stake. Some, of course, because, after that, the fight will then be Ethereum vs USD / EUR. And I know who is winning that too...

Ethereum, the Next Internet

Is Rootstock a viable competitor to Ethereum?

When Bitcoin activates Segwit and raises their MAX_BLOCKSIZE parameter, could Ethereum lose a lot of its users to Rootstock? Rootstock promises to only cost 1/10th of Ethereum's gas price, and smart contracts are backwards compatible from Ethereum to Rootstock.
How exactly do they expect to reach 20k transactions per second in a trustless manner? And is merged mining a healthy way to secure their blockchain?
submitted by RavenDothKnow to ethereum [link] [comments]

Is Rootstock a threat to Ethereum?

Just some thoughts, let me know what you think.
Does Rootstock currently pose a threat to Ethereum?
This depends. If smart contracts start to play a bigger and bigger role in powering decentralised applications, we might find that it will be unacceptable to host a smart contract on Rootstock.
This is because Rootstock is currently a federated sidechain (read: centralised) and relies on merge mining, a poor choice for security.
If smart contracts never move past the toy phase and are only being used to handle small amounts of money, etc.. it's likely Rootstock will be competitive to Ethereum.
As I believe that smart contracts, autonomous code, etc... will become a defining feature of the next technological movement, Ethereum will be far more attractive for deployment than Rootstock.
Is there any real threat then?
Yes! If someone figures out a way to:
  1. Have a sidechain on Bitcoin that doesn't have the merge mining requirement.
  2. And is still secure, with no chance of funds being stolen, (read: doesn't require mining.)
  3. And is decentralised.
Ethereum may have a real problem.
Conclusion
At the moment the nature of the setup for Rootstock poses Ethereum no real threat.
However, a breakthrough with sidechains most certainly could cause a problem.
Solution
Ethereum should starting aiming to become Bitcoin faster than Bitcoin becomes Ethereum.
I know many of you have heard that line before, what does it mean and how do we get there?
Complete these projects:
  1. Sharding.
  2. Raiden.
  3. PoS
But most importantly, to really unleash the above 3, we need to:
Accept that ETH is also able to be used a digital currency that can directly compete with Bitcoin.
I understand that is very controversial, however I believe that it's acceptance is important for Ethereum.

What is very real, though, is the possibility that Ethereum blows past Bitcoin entirely.

Should we concerned about Bitcoin now?

One of the biggest existential threats to Ethereum is a Bitcoin that has its shit together.
Now Bitcoin seems more unified than ever and the money is now flowing back into the king.
So what are peoples thoughts about this? Does Ethereum have an answer to the reality that Bitcoin will soon be unified once again and soon after Rootstock will come into play.
I understand that Rootstock is a copy paste of the Ethereum virtual machine as Ethereum is where the innovation happens, unfortunately I see Rootstock being a competitor just because of the Bitcoin brand name no matter how un-innovative they are.

Rootstock (RSK) is a smart contract platform that is connected to the Bitcoin blockchain through sidechain technology.Although the smart contracts aren't actually deployed on the Bitcoin blockchain itself, RSK allows users to send Bitcoin directly onto the Rootstock chain through a 2-way peg, which are then converted into smart Bitcoins on the Rootstock blockchain. Rootstock (RSK) is a two-way pegged sidechain to Bitcoin designed to enable full Turing-complete smart contract functionality for the Bitcoin ecosystem. The RSK network is secured via merge-mining with a Federation checkpointing mechanism, effectively allowing it to retain the security of Bitcoin’s double-spend proofs and settlement finality.
