It's impossible to encrypt a small message that the ciphered text is smaller than 80 bytes
limit (OP_RETURN max 80 bytes). If we're going to raise the limit, the blockchain will be bloated much faster. 80 bytes is already too much.

I wish it was possible to send money from old format address to new format address or
vice versa but it doesn't look like it is. We can add a new transaction format that works
exactly like ZCash it'd be junk if it wasn't backwards address compatible.

If it does something else (building a blockchain based market, tracking supply chains with blockchain, building decentralized poker), bad. Same goes for smart contracts.

Our first priority should be blockchain bloat-protection. The limit should be so low that no
one should be able to upload leaked game of thrones scripts. Or BS will upload illegal things to blockchain and BCC will get banned in many countries.
