Similar projects in the US take years and cost billions of dollars. We aren't even talking about 2-3X better, China is >100X better in terms of speed. They can build a train station in one day while it takes years in the Bay Area.

In a trade war world, economically demilitarized zones may become more valuable. All else being equal, a company in Singapore that can raise from both Chinese and Western investors — while avoiding the hassle of both governments — may outcompete one that can’t. twitter.com/matthuang/stat…

Some caveats:

1) All else is currently not equal, world is not flat, etc. There are still advantages to being in SF or Beijing.

2) From a demilitarized zone you may be able to access Chinese money, but probably not the Chinese market (unless you have connections in China).

In other words, crypto conferences are not optional junkets for people to take a holiday. They are the way decisions get made, deals get done, and relationships get solidified. They have a tangible value particularly in crypto-land.

bitcoin isn't censorship resistant because it is "decentralised".

it avoids censorship because it prioritises liveness over safety.

Care about "permissionless" - anyone can buy hardware to produce blocks and keep bitcoin live.

Lots of spec BTC overbought. Prob true. But when emerging assets get new media and investor attention "normal" often doesn't apply. Two scenarios: 1) Move higher continues, frustrating sideline $ and shorts 2) Quick shakeout that sideliners see as last chance, so sharp rebound.

1/ It’s 2019, nearly 5 years after the landmark sidechains paper. We were told that this technology would destroy altcoins. Bitcoin would simply copy the best features from altcoins via sidechains. What happened and where are we now? blockstream.com/sidechains.pdf

  • 16 hours ago
  • 6
  • 35

2/ Bitcoin has the greatest network effect, but its rules are rather limiting for many use cases. The throughput capacity is low and smart contracts are difficult to build.

  • 16 hours ago
  • 0

  • 2

3/ The 2014 Sidechains paper from several Blockstream founders proposed a simple idea. Instead of forcing everyone to use Bitcoin’s network rules, we could let users spin up new networks and use a two-way peg to allow transfers to and from a side chain.

  • 16 hours ago
  • 0
  • 2

4/ In effect, sandboxes can be created with vastly different rules, but utilizing the bitcoin currency via a two-way peg. The holy grail is a trustless two-way peg. The cryptography behind this is understood, but the Core devs have not yet become comfortable with the incentives.

  • 16 hours ago

5/ A top concern is that miners are already too centralized, and introducing sidechains puts smaller miners at an even bigger disadvantage. They would likely need to validate sidechains, or miss out on fees. If enough traffic moved to sidechains, they may be put out of business.

  • 16 hours ago
  • 0
  • 2
  • 2

6/ Another big problem is that as more value is stored within a sidechain, the incentive to do a big reorganization grows along with it. Even worse, miners with enough hashing power could submit fake SPV proofs and steal funds secured within the sidechain.

  • 16 hours ago
  • 0

7/ These concerns have put a pin in trustless two-way pegs with SPV level security. Instead, we have (at least) three sidechain projects that use the federated model: @Blockstream’s Liquid, @rsksmart’s Rootstock, and @Truthcoin’s drivechains.

  • 16 hours ago
  • 0

  • 2

8/ Liquid and Rootstock are live today. See blockstream.info/liquid/ and explorer.rsk.co. Drivechains are on a Bitcoin testnet. These projects add compelling functionality to Bitcoin, but do not make good on the promise of trustless experimentation.

  • 16 hours ago

9/ Rather than bitcoins being secured at the protocol level via a trustless two-way peg, they are stored in a multisig wallet belonging to the federation members.

10/ Blockstream’s Andrew Poelstra suggests that the accepting SPV security model may not work without tech such as zk-starks that additionally prove the sidechain rules are being followed. This kind of tech is being developed by @StarkWareLtd.
