"if you told me in 2011 that we would be sitting here in 2017 and we hadn't bumped up this block size, I would've said, "there's no way that could happen." -Stephen Pair, bitcoin.com podcast

"if you told me in 2011 that we would be sitting here in 2017 and we hadn't bumped up this block size, I would've said, "there's no way that could happen." We always knew we were going to hit these scalability challenges at some point, we just thought we had a little more (unintelligible). So, the fact that the block size hasn't been increased, or we don't have as much transaction throughput, and we're bumping up against these limits right now in 2017 has pushed that right to the top of the priority stack for us as a company."

BitPay CEO Stephen Pair: Bitcoin Unlimited Would Materially Degrade the Network

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 81%.
BitPay CEO Stephen Pair has been more vocal about his company's stance on Bitcoin's scaling debate over the past few weeks, and his most recent attempt to further clarify the Bitcoin payment processing giant's view on the matter was on episode 325 of Let's Talk Bitcoin!
During his discussion with co-hosts Adam B. Levine and Andreas Antonopoulos, Pair shared his thoughts on the potential of Bitcoin without any further protocol changes, the issues he sees with Bitcoin Unlimited, and user-activated soft forks.
While BitPay's thoughts on scaling have evolved over time, the potential for a contentious hard fork by way of Bitcoin Unlimited and rising transaction fees on the network have turned this issue into their main focus.
During the conversation on Let's Talk Bitcoin!, Pair also shared BitPay's operational playbook in regard to an attempted contentious hard fork of the Bitcoin network.
Bitcoin Unlimited's concept of Emergent Consensus allows miners and users to signal their block size limit preference on the Bitcoin network.
One final area of discussion around Bitcoin scaling that took place during this episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin! had to do with the balance of power between different entities on the network.

I recommended Coinify, not BitPay, for our bitcoin meetup pub. Heads up, Stephen Pair!

I have run a bitcoin meetup in Norway for over two years, and our favourite waterhole is finally going to accept bitcoin for food and beer.
But the fees for BTC is just too high. Nobody will pay a USD 5-8 fee for a beer.
So we can't use the legendary company BitPay to process the transactions.
This is a very sad development in my eyes.
We will use Coinify, because they support payments with Bitcoin Cash.
Stephen Pair, Bitcoin Cash is the future of bitcoin. Don't miss the boat.

BitPay CEO Stephen Pair on rapidly rising miner fees, BitPay, and what's next for Bitcoin

BitPay CEO Stephen Pair on rapidly rising miner fees, BitPay, and what's next for Bitcoin submitted by jameslwalpole to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Stephen Pair (BitPay CEO), two months ago: “Bitcoin is working perfectly”. Stephan Pair, today: “Bitcoin doesn’t work for us... it just doesn't.” (Consensus 2017 panel)

In a post titled "The Bitcoin Fee Market", March 2017:
In fact, we think Bitcoin is working perfectly.
In a panel at Consensus 2017, today:
Bitcoin stopped working for us... it's just not working for us.
Very odd, especially considering that his next sentence is:
We do predominantly settlement type transactions. We don't sell cups of coffee ... our bread & butter is at the $5,000 to $20,000 price range for a typical transaction.
So, is bitcoin is broken because fees went up for them from around 0.006% to around 0.01%? Or did something else happen?
