- From the new chat log between Charlie Lee and "Jihan&mates", Jihan's no courtesy shocked me. So the joke "fuck your mother if you want fuck" was not an accident.
- I respect F2pool and its good will. in twitter F2pool thought my post was encouraging conspiracy theory, but as for me, there must be some reason to urge Jihan to block SegWit unreasonably and firmly. Maybe ASICBOOST, maybe something we don't know yet.
I fully understand F2pool and other independent miners/pools don't want to fight against Bitmain. 70% of mining rigs are produced by Bitmain, and you know there is "after-sales service".
- All of my Chinese friends who have BTC/LTC are angry with Jihan. It's naive to expect your enemy to give up covert advantage by itself if you have no enough power to revenge.
- None of my friends thinks it's bad to securely eliminate the covert advantage of ASICBOOST. None is worried about the revenge of Bitmain, for example, a new altcoin, which is repeated as a threaten by Jihan&mates again and again, even if it's listed on many exchanges. For example, Kraken, as Liar Roger Ver's intimate mate, will certainly list the new altcoin once it's available.
It's naive to expect your enemy to give up covert advantage by itself if he knows you are afraid of its revenge.
- So my opinion is that we shall eliminate the asicboost securely and immediately. Although church usually makes decisions after centuries, some decisions were made super fast to remove apparent unfairness. Unfairness can accumulate to distort the whole system.
The unfairness on Asicboost is that it's patented so no one else can use it freely.
it's risky to implement SW without 51% hashrate even with UASF. It's super risky to hard fork at this time.
Before Bitcoin, all successful open source software are published by devs talking with users, without any votes from groups like miners. I fully respect the mechanism that miners have a say, or have an important say. But in this issue that Jihan and his mates act against the majority of the community without any reasonable explanation, but full of underbred attack and baseless lies, I even can't call it a ‘controversy’.

My feeling is that Jihan&mates &Liar Roger Ver really enjoy the quarrel to mud the water.
