  • I’ve been following a lot of the commentary pertaining to the bitcoin blockchain block size limit.  Many acknowledge that Satoshi introduced the 1 MB block size as a spam control measure, yet they all argue about replacing the 1 MB limit with another limit (or means of automatically adjusting the limit).  It finally occurred to me that if the limit is meant for spam control, and the limit is problematic, we need a new spam control mechanism rather than a new limit.  Can anyone suggest an alternative to block size limits?  What if mining fees increased exponentially with transaction size (data size in bytes, not value)?  Feel free to include related thoughts, e.g. tenor of the debate, etc.
