i've gone beyond insane; punk, rat, zeynep, and you, appear somewhat
borderline. personal opinions.

improvements not integrated into core after many years. no biggie.
of course, doing so would make it a real p2p electronic cash system
again, as most altcoins have done.

see: security by obscurity. nobody cares about nor wants
refundability, and everybody here knows it already.

bitcoin's protocol is actually continually improving in a
very-influenced decision making process that is likely kept open to
any interested. seems more productive to strengthen something better

not technically a cypherpunk view unless you are a blockchain dev; p2p
cash works already.

what grarpamp is saying here is that it is 'fucking' not too late.
everybody reads news about cryptocurrency exploision being in the
past, early investors being lucky: cryptocurrency is _still ongoing_.
don't trust news that disses peer to peer community solutions.
one thing to do is to buy or "mine" from all the new altcoins that
have merit. some of them skyrocket, for example after being introduced
to a new exchange, which is likely preceded by discussion. dump after
a spike, repeat. check past charts to see what order of magnitude and
frequency of profit to expect.
