- Even with 11,000 full (secure) nodes, Zencash was 51% attacked for a mere $20,000 worth of hashrate last week. Just goes to show that full nodes don’t secure the network, miners do.

- Bigger blocks do not cause increased mining centralization, miners do not run full nodes, the pools do. This is a type of free market of pools, or a form of representative democracy for miners. I can switch my miners over to another pool within seconds, changing my vote.
