02:59 rebroad the issue with the death spiral occuring seems quite urgent now - even BitcoinABC is hard-forking to address this, tomorrow... Is Bitcoin planning to be proactive about this at all?
04:42 tyrick Is there a corresponding message broadcasted along with each Block that contains the witness data for SegWit txts?
