Don't know, but maybe they just read the same blockchain from the default location. While we are running 1MB blocks wouldn't all client behave in the same way? It's only when the miners have mined # number of blocks that the different block size parameters can be activated anyway.

As for the differences, I'm my memory isn't faulty, I think BTC XT has a size limit while BU doesn't really have one, or more of a floating size limited per xx blocks or something like that. I haven't read up all that properly so I could be completely mistaken.

@Administrator I don't have moving rights in this section. Please move the topic to the Scam section, thanks!

I'm split on this one. I haven't gone looking for proof of a scam or if this is just some hyperbolic shitcoin. Any comments on whether we should move this topic to the scamcoin section or not?

I admit, it is pretty laughable. What's with the soccer robot on the presentation picture, it has nothing to do with some arbitrary scrypt coin that can pay out insurance claims?

Thanks for posting, but why bother. Sorry for my lack of interest, but come on guys.....

Keeping you BTC on an exchange till the end of the year? Unless you are actively trading that is just a Big Risk. We all know better, if you don't own the private keys then you are at the mercy of the exchange.

When the ETH/ETC split happened, anyone was able to collect both tokens on both chains. By leaving your coins on an exchange might be convenient, but there is no guarantee that you would have two assets if a fork should happen. Again, check back at what happened to ETH. Several exchanges did not grant the users any ETC, and because the users did not hold their own keys - no ETC for them.

The amount of tokens that you have on the current chain will be the same if a fork happens. So you would end up with 100% assets on BTC and 100% equivalent on XBU (unlimited) or whatever that asset will be called.

@IceKohl FIrst impression is that is is a centralized "service".. kind of fishy but i haven't taken the time to investigate more. They are not associated with the mining company canaan.io (AVALON) so I personally would stand aside until I had done more research... due diligence and all the jazz.

@kdmine Dash is an asic mined coin now, so GPU is not worth it. Stick to eth @apmapm12 or keep your eyes focus on BTCtalk and look for new gpu coins that are released.

Here's a summery of what all the fuss is about:

Bitcoin could really take off today, but many people say that it will be a big "mehh" and Bitcoin will continue to march along as usual.

WHY IS THIS ETF SUCH A BIG DEAL?
It's all about liquidity. While there are plenty of places to buy bitcoin, many investment funds can only hold assets that meet certain regulatory standards—such as approval from the SEC. If the agency approves the ETF application, money managers who want to include bitcoin in their portfolio are likely to jump in. Meanwhile, millions of ordinary people will have an easy new way to buy the digital currency. I can't really phrase it any better than this quote from BitMex, a bitcoin analysis site:

If the SEC approves the Bats rule change, all manner of American muppet retail investors can yolo into Bitcoin via a regulated ETF. The pool of eligible money that can easily obtain exposure to Bitcoin will dramatically rise. There are various predictions about the amount of money that could flow into Bitcoin. In short, it will be Yuge.
