@atak they also use client-side only checks on the max length of the field. I want to do megabytes lol
@atak lol. It is super glitchy right now, sometimes payments don't work, their LN node goes down, the website is often down, etc.
https://lightninggem.com there's no better way to test out the Lightning Network!
@firstname.lastname@example.org But, it's not correct to say "we should keep the block size as small as possible". 1kb blocks would be completely useless. There is a "best" blocksize, which is the correct balance between decentralization and usability. It's probably not 1mb. It's probably not 300kb. It's probably not 8mb.
@k Is there any way to automatically link all repos from my Github profile?
https://fitvitalik.io is about to miss its minimum target by about 50% :( bye bye 0.1 eth
@k It's hard to tell how much it actually does though without open sourcing it. It could just be a dummy option and we wouldn't know any better. Without releasing the source, we have no way to tell if it's actually an improvement over what we had before.
To clarify, I did not write the linked-to article.
CryptoKitties is everything wrong with cryptocurrencies today. It's showing Eth has scaling problems too, but far worse than Bitcoin's (this is one borderline-meme application that's been active for under a week), and it's barely decentralized: It relies on a proprietary cat-rendering system, which, if shut down, renders the cats nearly worthless, and has freezing functions built into its smart contract. https://medium.com/loom-network/your-crypto-kitty-isnt-forever-why-dapps-aren-t-as-decentralized-as-you-think-871d6acfea
