What’s a more reasonable estimate for transactions-per-block after segwit? The estimates I saw were in the 2x range, is it a lot more than that? I kinda took a “physics-style” order-of-magnitude approach here, just to get a sense of whether reasonable numbers corresponded with the goal of supersizing transaction volume.
Your last point is really important — we don’t need to scale bitcoin globally yet… we just need to make it to next year, and then the year after that. There’s a lot of approaches for doing that, but it feels like people are fighting about the 10-year plan when we’ve got a 1-year problem to solve!
