Peter: i'm not the smartest person in the world but wouldn't it have been easier to just fork the open source code?
oh LGPL not BSD license
that's why
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
The open source code has a restrictive license that doesn't allow doing this, exactly to prevent people directly selling other's work
cseberino
@cseberino
Peter: how does Vitalik feel about parity?
and this 2nd version?
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
But he wouldn't have forked geth either way, he has a thing agaimst Go and the Go team. Not sure whh but he always wants us to look im a bad ligjt
Parity is just another client that does Ethereum,so from the ecosystem perspective it's beneficial
cseberino
@cseberino
Peter: Go was kind of a surprising choice....it isn't the most popular language so some devs first come to Ethereum and go "HUH?" "Why Go?"
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
It targets cirporate customers and does many things those users need and public ones not, that's true
Go actually is one of the most popular lamguagaes
It's just relatively new
cseberino
@cseberino
Peter: i would have guessed python or java
Pascal van Kooten
@kootenpv
Go is most popular for blockchain projects, that's for sure :P
cseberino
@cseberino
or C
Pascal van Kooten
@kootenpv
and in China it really became popular
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
But look up any recent networkimg/distributed system projevt and you'll find go
cseberino
@cseberino
Peter: seems like i turned my back and now everyone is all excited about Rust and Go
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
Docker, IPFS
cseberino
@cseberino
i was just getting cumfy with python
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
heck, spacex uses go
cseberino
@cseberino
after a decade
Peter: aw man..i love spacex
if they use Go it must be good
crap now i have to learn go
:)
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
Only for teletry, not everything
But still :)
*teletry
**telemetry
Cloudflare runs on go
Go was designed for distributed and multi core systems. It's hard to compete with it if the competitor was born in a previous era (java)
And it was designed for Google scale from day one
That's also not something most languages do
Googles CDN runs Go
Rust is probably also a nuce choice for vlockchain as it's fast, but a lot more complex
If you need to evolve faster, simpler is better
(Sorru for the typos, om my phone)

@karalabe
Gotta run:)
Jarrad
@jarradh
ciao :)
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
Join golang-nuts and learn yourself some Go, you won't regret it ;)
cseberino
@cseberino
thanks
Tim Jester-Pfadt
@timjp87
rkt from CoreOS also runs go

@ivanhopke_twitter
ok I have started nods as they finish and I add mist wallet how can I run the same wallet on each nod and run the same password?

@ellis2323
@karalabe hello, i have made some benchmarks with RAM disk... For the --fast and full synch , i have similar times .... so it's seem the disk is not the bottleneck :)

@fjl

@karalabe

They did, parity :) It's a paid client

That's not true btw.
Parity is licensed GPLv3 but you can buy a commercial license. That's a very common setup.

More info here on Parity for everybody who is interested - https://ethcore.io/parity.html.

So Parity itself is an open source client, but ETHCORE are a for-profit corporation, who recently raised $750,000 USD in VC funding. See https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/ethcore-raises-financing-round-as-first-venture-capital-funded-ethereum-startup-1461343599.

Quote in that article, though not from ETHCORE themselves:

“Ethcore is much more focused on building licensed, proprietary tools for large financial institutions, exchanges, and so forth, as opposed to the more open-sourced, Red Hat approach Blockstream is taking ... One of Ethcore’s main value propositions is that they know Ethereum better than anyone, and thus the tools they build and deploy should buttress and catalyze Ethereum as a whole.”

^ This quote was from one of the two VC companies which made the investment. So they should know what they are talking about, especially if they are speaking on the record.
