Crypto News & ICO Reviews
Let there be no more ambiguity about your position.
There are reviewed and signed binaries available for download. You should show people who are on the fence that you are determined and capable of enforcing BIP-148. Indeed, that you are already enforcing BIP-148.
I know that at the website it says:
It is recommended that users do not update unless an economic majority commits to updating and users are aware of the risks and mitigations of a failed UASF deployment.
But it also says:
Users aware of the risks and who want to commit should use clients that enforce BIP148. Users that run full nodes would upgrade to one that enforces BIP148
We only have 1 more month to ensure that a critical mass demands segwit on August 1, or UASF will fall on it's face. Segwit will be delayed. Bitmain will be emboldened. Projects will develop closer ties to coins that have already activated segwit. The world will have evidence that unless Jihan Wu or Greg Maxwell sign off on a change to Bitcoin, it cannot happen.
We have a better option. Let's exercise it.
If you want UASF to happen, your node should advertise that unless you change your mind, it will enforce BIP 148. Putting the message in uacomment was the best thing to do before reviewed binaries were available, and helped bring those binaries into existence. Now, though, it introduces unnecessary guesswork about how committed you are to the project, and raises questions about whether the enforcing nodes have economic significance or not. The more certainty we can get our hands on the better our chances of success. I want to see that fat gray band on the area chart start rapidly shrinking to zero, and you should too.
