    His confidence is amazing. He knew exactly what genie he was about to let out of the bottle.

    Do you earn any BTC for running a node? I know it’s different than mining, but I’m not sure the specifics.

    Satoshi used to call miners nodes, a lightweight node is what we call a node as of today.

    Can someone expand on the Simplified Payment Verification? Is he/she/they referring to what we now call a full node(non mining node)?

    And there are middleweight clients: clients that have the full block chain, but can’t generate blocks.

    Lightning brings so much amazing functionality to nodes he may not have anticipated. Hope he’s here to see it

    I don’t see why you couldnt try to have many more nodes than that, maybe 1 for every 20 people on Earth or so seems reasonable, so maybe 300 million nodes or so.

    Some people want the semi-privacy, others want the convenience, etc etc.

    Satoshi didn’t see ASICS coming, and his project has become an energy problem for the whole world.

    BTC has a different use case which many say it’s a store of value and I agree.
