    <br> If the bitcoin community isn’t willing to point out some things would better be done by other systems then it becomes easy to make strawman arguments: If we admit that bitcoin could be used as a floor wax and desert topping, someone will always point out that it’s not the best floorwax or best desert topping. As such, it’s merely an extreme example- not a plan for how bitcoin will grow to address wider needs (as a decentralized system it is the bitcoin using public who will decide how bitcoin grows)- it’s just an argument that shows that bitcoin’s core design can scale much better than an intelligent person might guess at first. Bitcoin is a more complete replacement for checks, wire transfers, money orders, gold coins, CDs, savings accounts, etc. and if widely adopted probably replace the uses of credit cards which would be better served by these other things if they worked better online. This is a poor comparison because bitcoin alone is not a perfect replacement for visa for reasons completely unrelated to scaling: Bitcoin does not offer instant transactions, credit, or various anti-fraud mechanisms (which some people want, even if not everyone does), for example. Dan rightly criticizes the analysis presented here- pointing out that operating at this scale would significantly reduce the decentralized nature of bitcoin: If you have to have many terabytes of disk space to run a «full validating» node then fewer people will do it, and everyone who doesn’t will have to trust the ones who do to be honest.<br>
    <br> And the need to be able to withstand DoS attacks (which VISA does not have to deal with) implies we would want to scale far beyond the standard peak rates. Obviously if we want Bitcoin to scale to all economic transactions worldwide, including cash, it’d be a lot higher than that, perhaps more in the region of a few hundred thousand tps. VISA handles on average around 2,000 transactions per second (tps), so call it a daily peak rate of 4,000 tps. It was launched in July 2017 and has rapidly become the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world in terms of daily trading volume. In a world where bitcoin was widely used payment processing systems would probably have lower prices because they would need to compete with raw-bitcoin transactions, they also could be afford lower price because frequent bitcoin settling (and zero trust bitcoin escrow transactions) would reduce their risk.<br>
    <br> Simonite, Tom. «Meet Gavin Andresen, the most powerful person in the world of Bitcoin». When techies hear about how bitcoin works they frequently stop at the word «flooding» and say «Oh-my-god! that can’t scale!». The purpose of this article is to take an extreme example, the peak transaction rate of Visa, and show that bitcoin could technically reach that kind of rate without any kind of questionable reasoning, changes in the core design, or non-existent overlays. These services would gain the benefit of the stable inflation resistant bitcoin currency, users would gain the benefits of instant transactions, credit, and anti-fraud, bitcoin overall would enjoy improved scaling from offloaded transaction volume without compromising its decentralized nature. Second, and most importantly, the assumed scaling described here deals with Bitcoin replacing visa. We firmly believe digital assets are here to stay, so that’s the future. First, even at the astronomic scale presented here the required capacity is well within the realm of (wealthy) private individuals, and certainly would be at some future time when that kind of capacity was required. Dan appears (from his slides) to have gone too far with that argument: he seems to suggest that this means bitcoins will be controlled by the kind of central banks that are common today.<br>
    <br> The system could also not get to this kind of scale without bitcoin users agreeing collectively to increase the maximum block size, so it’s not an outcome that can happen without the consent of bitcoin users. On any beginner’s first time logging into the Binance platform there will be a lot to get used to in terms of the sheer amount of products and features offered on the dashboard. Moreover, the Binance platform accounts for an average of $1 billion daily trades, which implies there are more buyers and sellers. Up until now, the only partial solution was codifying certain rules into contracts and laws — a solution which has its strengths, but which also has its weaknesses, as laws are numerous and very complicated to navigate without the help of a (often very expensive) professional. Most exchanges also conduct ID verification to comply with know your customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) rules. Bitcoin was designed to support lightweight clients that only process small parts of the block chain (see simplified payment verification below for more details on this). We see the beginnings of this today with bitcoin exchange and wallet services allowing instant payments between members<br>>
