Peter Todd responded once on my comment on the LTB-podcast, but I've not gotten a single reaction from him since. He did have something to say about PoS and that he thought that could never work. I've tried asking him to elaborate on why his concept is less centralized than standard merge mining or side-chains in general. I even tried challenging other commenters to try and eek out some more insights, but most of them seem to just echo what they heard in the interview and take those remarks at face value, without being able to explain the details as to why those statements would be valid.
My brain is not firing on all cylinders yet due to a tenacious flue so I've not been able to work through the mailing-list article yet.
But the rest posts and debate in this mail list thread is , eh.., embarrassed?
Indeed. I was trying to get more insight from people reacting to his proposal, but instead the discussion seemed to focus around Peter Todds personality and how he was scaring away would be developers and new ideas.
