Overstock CEO Calls Bitcoin Code "Slop"
« on: June 23, 2014, 06:14:34 am »

This thread just appeared over on BTC. This topic is highly relevant to NXT also, so I am just starting it here also.

Did I mention that bitcoind seems to severely violate jsonrpc calls?

When an audience member asked whether he believed that in the future a select number of popular altcoins could serve as competing currencies, Byrne responded that he favors competing currencies in theory and feels like they could truly compete with Bitcoin as long as they offer superior technical features.

He then went on to acknowledge that the core Bitcoin code contains a lot of “slop,” which he speculated could cause potential logistical problems for Bitcoin in the future.
