I know where are some of the flaws and false assumptions etc, come from in your “paper”. is Cardano Blockchain (which is a strict state machine) is built on Ouroboros Classic (Byron), BFT (Both) and Praos (Shelley) and you must fully understand them […] and you cannot state something which is independent
So much true that in their papers, they discuss extensively of Ouroboros mechanism, and it plays an important role in their proof. So much so that the word appear only twice: in the intro and the conclusion, just to mention it briefly.
So much so that @Lars_Brunjes did not even bother to point out that my proposal was incompatible with Ouroboros in any way, and let me redact this proof knowing exactly what theorem I was going to proove, without saying anything.
By the way really easy to say some general thing like that, without pointing to anything in particular (which I’ve been asking for weeks: explain me why this formula does not work), so that at the same time I cannot answer it (because you did not point to anything), but it also may give the impression that I indeed missed something which tears apart any interest of my proposal.
(By the way very similar argument to the many people telling me here at first “Basically every single one of your points here is answered within the recent Cardano Effect podcast on pledge.”, without pointing to anything specific, which now everyone knows was a fallacy since @Lars_Brunjes who was part of this podcast came here to discuss and pointed " It’s not something I can just pull out of my sleeve, I’ll have to think carefully about how to answer you" )
So friendly advice, please get this paper submitted somewhere
You know very well that I will never have the resources to do publish in a peer-review paper (especially because we’re more talking about engeneering choices for a specific crypto-currency than a general interest scientific topic here). So much so that even the official paper itself is only published on arxiv, which is not a peer reviewed, and in which there is almost no publish filter, so it is almost the same as if they published it on their website as I did. Anyway this paper would be so much specific paper to the Cardano design (as you said above), that it can only be review by peers from the Cardano community, so here we are, in the best place to do that, and I submit it here.
I’m sorry to point it out, but it really looks like, you are finding excuses to close your eyes here. Quite ironically I think, and I hope that the authors and developers themselves (and even the project leader) are more open-minded.
Also, the science is not about to be right
I can tell you the only thing I’ve been wanting here is for Cardano to be right, not to be right myself. Anyone that re-reads the chronology of my messages here will know it (and don’t forget this one). The first posts of this thread, and my other posts on other threads, where I asked so many times “Please show me WHY this formula is wrong, and the other is better” (and this was not politeness, or rhetoric, I really wanted someone to explain me that the chosen formula was better because of …, which would have been way more comfortable for me than scarifying so much time ). My confidence in this scheme has only grown over time with anyone’s inability to give reasonable explanation why the current formula is better.
