The Kava Labs Video Tracker! (YouTube)
This topic tracks the various Youtube uploads regarding Kava Labs. The Kava team checks YouTube everyday - even is a video generally has a "negative outlook" as long as it is educational it will be included here. If a YouTube video is NOT included here, then it most likely means that it contains false information, and can not be endorsed by Kava in anyway.

Note:The vast majority of the video's published during the summer of 2019 are outdated & no longer relevant. Many are also XRP related, and although XRP will be supported by the Kava Defi Lending platform in the near future, this is no longer breaking news.
Debunked: "We don't know what Satoshis opinion was on big blocks or exactly how he expected the Bitcoin design to scale past VISA levels and be usable as money for the entire world"
If the final edition of the design paper itself was not enough to convince you of how Bitcoin is designed to scale, here are Satoshis own less formal explanations.
Satoshi: Long before the network gets anywhere near as large as that, it would be safe for users to use Simplified Payment Verification (section 8) to check for double spending, which only requires having the chain of block headers, or about 12KB per day. Only people trying to create new coins would need to run network nodes. At first, most users would run network nodes, but as the network grows beyond a certain point, it would be left more and more to specialists with server farms of specialized hardware. A server farm would only need to have one node on the network and the rest of the LAN connects with that one node. The bandwidth [required for running a network node] might not be as prohibitive as you think. A typical transaction would be about 400 bytes (ECC is nicely compact). Each transaction has to be broadcast twice, so lets say 1KB per transaction. Visa processed 37 billion transactions in FY2008, or an average of 100 million transactions per day. That many transactions would take 100GB of bandwidth, or the size of 12 DVD or 2 HD quality movies, or about $18 worth of bandwidth at current prices. If the network were to get that big, it would take several years, and by then, sending 2 HD movies over the Internet would probably not seem like a big deal.
The proof-of-work is a Hashcash style SHA-256 collision finding. It's a memoryless process where you do millions of hashes a second, with a small chance of finding one each time. The 3 or 4 fastest nodes' dominance would only be proportional to their share of the total CPU power. There will be transaction fees, so nodes will have an incentive to receive and include all the transactions they can.
The existing Visa credit card network processes about 15 million Internet purchases per day worldwide. Bitcoin can already scale much larger than that with existing hardware for a fraction of the cost. It never really hits a scale ceiling. If you’re interested, I can go over the ways it would cope with extreme size. By Moore’s Law, we can expect hardware speed to be 10 times faster in 5 years and 100 times faster in 10. Even if Bitcoin grows at crazy adoption rates, I think computer speeds will stay ahead of the number of transactions.
The current system where every user is a network node is not the intended configuration for large scale. That would be like every Usenet user runs their own NNTP server. The design supports letting users just be users. The more burden it is to run a node, the fewer nodes there will be. Those few nodes will be big server farms. The rest will be client nodes that only do transactions and don't generate.
While I don't think Bitcoin is practical for smaller micropayments right now, it will eventually be as storage and bandwidth costs continue to fall [on the global market]. If Bitcoin catches on on a big scale, it may already be the case by that time. Another way they can become more practical is if I implement the client-only mode [which uses the "Simplified Payment Verification" described in the design PDF] and the number of network nodes [more rapidly] consolidates into a smaller number of professional server farms. Whatever size micropayments you need will eventually be practical. I think in 5 or 10 years, the bandwidth and storage will seem trivial.
It would be nice to keep the blk*.dat files small as long as we can. The eventual solution will be to not care how big it gets. But for now, while it's still small, it's nice to keep it small so new users can get going faster. When I eventually implement client-only mode, that won't matter much anymore.
It can be phased in, like: if (blocknumber > 115000) maxblocksize = largerlimit It can start being in versions way ahead, so by the time it reaches that block number and goes into effect, the older versions that don't have it are already obsolete. When we're near the cutoff block number, I can put an alert to old versions to make sure they know they have to upgrade.

''' I agree, and you should recheck your math because it's wrong. Modest on-chain is actually really really good for scaling Bitcoin, good for user adoption, good for decentralization as new users run more nodes and more businesses get involved. Also, Moores Law - the network/hardware/hd space can handle way more than we have right now. Every economic indicator shows that larger blocks at this point in Bitcoin's life would be beneficial to it. I also want decentralization and I think there is a point where on-chain needs to stop. We're just very far away from that point and small blockers have been misled to think otherwise. ''' Context Link Go1dfish undelete link unreddit undelete link Author: Annapurna317
