You got some "dust" happens all the time
It is a method of cheap advertising.
But can be pretty annoying since the tx has super low priority, might never confirm.

Yes, I'm afraid you've been hacked. The next time you log into your wallet your funds will all be taken.



Seriously though, No. They're just spam advertising payments. Nothing to worry about.

The sender is "BtcSmart - Multiply your money". Spamming through blockchain. Bad way to promote their business.

I wonder if that is what happened to me? I sync with the network using an old empty wallet. Two days ago I noticed my "empty" wallet had 1 Satoshi in it. I thought I had just forgotten it was there, but now I wonder if it was a transfer? I'll have to check tonight.

Apparently what these fuckwits are doing is watching all the bitcoin transactions as they stream out over the blockchain, picking up the (working) addresses and then sending their stupid spam to 'em in 0.000000001 transactions.

It's supremely annoying to me just 'cuz in my main wallets I try to keep WHOLE bitcoins in balance, only moving money into a "working" wallet for sending and receiving lesser amounts.  This helps me keep track of actual balances in my head, so I'll notice if something's amiss right away.

But now that's all cluttered up with this fucking SPAM DUST, and sometimes these transactions don't confirm so the single satoshi eventually disappears BUT sometimes apparently the transaction DOES confirm, so then that satoshi is permanent.

I dunno what a solution to this might be, but seems to me that bitcoin itself needs to have some feature for the receiver of money to actively REFUSE it, sometimes, if he doesn't want it!!

The way it is right now, anyone can "force their will" on you, pushing info (yes, even if it is "money") into your wallet, and you can't do a damn thing about it??

That kind of sucks  >:(

But I'm not sure how to go about suggesting new features for bitcoin: anyone know?

Also what do y'all think might be the possible implications of a feature like this, i.e. to actively REFUSE to receive a transaction?

Any apparent downside, like could there be some way that this might possibly be mis-used by bad guys to steal money out of people's wallets???

Ideas???

This is a real pain in the ass since I'm OCD about keeping whole-BTC wallet balances.

How can this be an effective advertising strategy. Even if I needed their services, I sure as hell wouldn't use them now.

No one is trying to hack you, just like everyone has said already: It is advertising, search for Laxotrade they also have been spamming people with Dust for free advertisements. "Recently"

The TX id contain a certain sequence of number which will sync with your brain wave pattern.
In your sleep will this sequence be played as "BtcSmart", and when you wake then will you have an urge to use their services, and you don't even know why.

Brilliant idea! I suggest we express our concern to the Bitcoin Foundation since a few of their members are directly involved in the maintanence of the Bitcoin-Qt app that most all of us use.

Thanks... but I'd say it's just kinda obvious, isn't it?  Not 'brilliant' LOL

Still not sure if there'd be some downside or disadvantage to this however. Have to tread lightly when it comes to changing bitcoin!

And, actually, now that I think of it more, seems to me that maybe this doesn't have to be a feature of the core bitcoin software but rather just a function of the particular WALLET application.

What I mean is, there actually already DOES appear to be an available function for this in bitcoin itself, i.e. whatever command or function is called when these transactions sometimes, eventually, "time out" and are reversed and disappear from the wallet history...? 

IF the wallet software could just have a feature to instantly trigger THAT somehow (maybe hidden in some 'advanced' tab) perhaps that'd be enough?

Any wallet programmers out there listening? Hello....? blockchain.info or Electrum guys or ? ???

There is no way you can refuse a input to your wallet.
When a transaction is confirmed then is it final.

Okay, I realize that: but as long as someone was to catch these stupid spams before they confirm, wouldn't it be possible to somehow CANCEL them this way...?

What else would YOU propose as a method to stop this bullshit, one-satoshi spam-dust crap? ???

Does it really seem "right" to you, that anyone can just push anything they like into your wallet, against your will?

This whole situation still seems, to me, like a small flaw in bitcoin's overall design... which should be fixed (or at least improved somewhat).

I do agree with you that the unconfirmed dust in your wallet is a bit annoying.

The technical part of the problem
was addressed in Bitcoin Core 0.9.0 (if I remember right).
With older version of the core, could the unconfirmed input (the dust we talk about) be used in your current output, and that was a problem in the "bitcoin's overall design", since your output would never be confirmed because the "dust" was never confirmed.

In the new core is only confirmed input allowed in the outputs.
Therefor are we left with a somewhat cosmetic problem, the average user should really not be concern about the blockchain, he/she should be concern about the ballance (confirmed balance).
The unconfirmed input will eventually be dropped and the "dust" will go away.
If the input is so lucky to be confirmed, then will you have received one free satoshi (free money yay!).

I have full understanding about the people that have OCD problems with having 1.00000001 BTC in their wallet, but from a logical point of view is 1.00000001 BTC better to have than 1 BTC.

The important thing is that the "dust" does not prevent you for receiving and transmit "true" transaction.

There's a link with those transactions, tells you where that transactions is comming from. But now they are advertising their shitty websites, some people click on them and even invest on them. These dust transactions serves as advertisements that's all nothing more.

Okay I understand your point but I don't agree that it's just "OCD problems" to be unhappy with receiving this "free money".

Sure if it was at least a whole penny or two, maybe yah then okay I'd take it.  Or IF it was at least 0.0001 so that the spammer was paying for a transaction fee at least!  But at current BTC value, just a single satoshi?  Sorry, nope, don't want this "free money" LOL

Keeping my wallet balances at "whole bitcoin" numbers in CERTAIN wallets that I maintain is NOT just an "OCD thing"... it's a deliberate policy that I follow so that I'm better able to remember how much bitcoin I have stored, and where.

But when these balances keep changing by tiny fractions of eight decimal place numbers it blows the whole system.  When I don't see my expected "whole number" value there I have to go and check to see that something isn't wrong, the wallet wasn't hacked or some transaction wasn't sent incorrectly or the balance got fucked up for some OTHER reason.

It's a big time-waster and a huge annoyance and not just "OCD" problem.

Anyway, what I do now to deal with this is just periodically "clean up" those wallets by collecting the dust into another disposable wallet or something like that, for a dollar or so, and donate it to a charity site.

But it's still annoying and I'd rather just have a way to say NO THANK YOU to certain .00000001 unsolicited spam "Free Money" transactions... BEFORE they're given any chance to confirm... if only that were somehow possible in the wallet's programming.

I still think it'd be a valuable feature for some wallet to implement...

That won't help. 

These assholes appear to be screen-scraping "working" wallet addresses by watching transactions flowing across the blockchain.

ANY address you ever USE in any wallet can potentially receive these spam dust transactions.

IF it was just some disposable wallets getting hit, then I wouldn't care either.  But it's fucking annoying that these bits of dust are being forced into my MAIN PRIMARY WALLET ADDRESSES that I deliberately try hard to keep only WHOLE BTC values in, to better keep track of them in memory, and for security & peace of mind in managing all my bitcoin.  (But as I said above, these fucking spammers with their .00000001 nonsense are blowing that system...)

I got that one Satoshi thing just this morning too. Really it doesn't seem to be good for anything except turning Bitcointalk into a gaggle of geese every time it happens to somebody. If somebody wants to send out single Satoshi, which is basically worth squat right now, it's up to them and in real terms it's nothing that's going to affect my operations one way or the other.

Yeah I know, LOL... and again I don't try to do this on ALL wallets, that'd be insane.  This really ISN'T an "OCD" thing LOL

I'm only annoyed by it when it hits my MAIN hot-storage wallet (and, couple of times happened even to a COLD storage address, which was even more annoying 'cuz I don't plan to *ever* take that money out of there, not at least until BTC is $$$$$$$)

But I guess maybe by then an extra satoshi or two might be worth something, LOL... so, whatever I guess.

Still.  Why the fuck do these idiots DO shit like this?  I can't imagine anyone really ever doing any business with them on the basis of finding these stupid URL links in bitcoin spam.

I got 0.0001 BTC from Laxo trade last night on one of my public known addy, a whole $0.04, at least it will pay my next tx.

Getting one satoshi is annoying, I do agree. However the core principal of bitcoin is based on asymmetric encryption. It is very similar to the system we know from receiving ordinary mail. If someone knows your address then can they send you a letter, no mater if you like it or not. If I knew your home address, then could I send you a letter and you would not be able to prevent me for doing so. The "tx" fee is rather high for sending ordinary letter compared to the 4 cent it cost to make a bitcoin transaction. Increasing the tx fee would definitely limit the "spam", but I think the tx fee is reasonable as it is now (might change my mind in the future about the size of the tx fee).

Aha... good point, never thought of it that way before.

OTOH with snail-mail you DO have the option to write "Moved No Forwarding Address Return To Sender" on the unopened envelope and drop it back into the mail... LOL.   Maybe bitcoin could have something similar.

It would definitely be a nice feature to be able auto send input from certain addy back to its origin (I do not have an overview how it should be implemented, but the transaction should be free from tx fee), it would require that your wallet is online and open though. Nevertheless, I just expect that the spam company will start shuffling the addys, then would you not be able to predict what addy to enable "auto-return" for.

Is there a way to just block Laxo Trade transactions? this is annoying.

No.


Change BTC address and don't let them discover your address again?

No... as I said above, apparently what they're doing is "screen scraping" valid bitcoin addresses AS they FLOW thru the BLOCKCHAIN.

So USING an address in any way makes it catchable by these idiots.

I have had single-use disposable addresses (on casino website, for example) that have shown up .00000001 immediately after ONE transaction has gone thru it.

I can confirm this. I've changed my address a ton of times and they all end up recieving this misterious Laxo Trade 1 satoshi transaction. Now I only need to create 1 million addresses to achieve 1 BTC  ::)

Still, this isn't a good idea. The transactions may never be confirmed depending on the fees paid and the age of coin. It would take a lot of fees to send 1million 0.0001. Your CPU would be quite maxed out generating 1million addresses and your wallet.dat would be extremely big.

Not always.
You may check https://blockchain.info/address/1LaxoTrQy51LnB289VmoSAgN6J6UrJbfL9, and you will see Laxo sometimes sent 1 satoshi, sometimes 1000 satoshi, sometimes 10000 satoshi and there are even a few 0.001 BTC payments.

As long as your wallet has a coin control function, those 1-satoshi dust outputs (confirmed or unconfirmed) won't produce any problem.

There is already a dust output rule that transaction with output < 546 satoshi is considered non-standard and will not be relayed.
AFAIK, most of the pools won't include those transactions in their blocks.

Yeah Stedsm... but how many 'hits' have you gotten from them on each address?

Curious to know if maybe after 6-7 or so total of .00000001 each, if it finally stops or ???

I mean, you'd THINK that'd make sense, right?  Even for these spammer morons to not be TOO wasteful?  If they're sending out millions of these, after making a half dozen or so impressions with no "sale"... why keep trying?

Let's hope so, LOL.  I'll post back here again if the SAME addresses hit before get hit again anytime soon *but* hopefully they won't...

Well, not necessarily. But the transaction might never confirm if he does not.

You can make transfers without a transactions fee.
Without going into details: adding a transaction fee just increase the priority.
When that is said, no transaction fee with very small output might never confirm because of the low priority, but can still be picked up by a generous miner.
This is of cause on protocol level, e.g. bitcoin core suggest a mandatory fee, to guarantee that transaction gets confirmed.

Everybody got the same dust payments. Just ignore them, as you can't do anything else.

Miners should require bigger fees from well known transaction spammer to include their transactions on blocks.

Only way to stop it

It's really a minor problem. Fees are already low and you don't pay more fee just for 2-3 dust payment you got.

I don't think it's hacking related, it's just a type of promotion "the transaction contains a link back to there site when viewed in blockchain.info".

But this looks like a negative promotion right now. It would be ok if they will be sending at least minimum tx fee (0.0001BTC).

Just spamming to get some traffic to their site, these kind of transactions have a link in Blockchain.info and they are sending those to attract some attention -most likely transactions are sent to addresses that has been active recenty and most people would at least check an unknown transaction- "and as a cheap way to promote their business".

first time getting some transaction spam?  :P , Anyway it's annoying when they go to in-websites wallets that require all deposits to be confirmed, Some automatically approve all 1 satoshi transactions but in others you might need to contact the operator of the site to get that transaction removed or considered confirmed.

As the saying goes, "There is no such thing as bad publicity". The site owner just want to draw the bitcoiners' attentions to his site with a very low cost.

They can get your address from any search engines or blockchain. To be able to spend your coins, they need your private key which they will not know unless you tell them or you have malware on your computer. They only have your address.

You are being spammed, just ignore
One secondary consequence if you have two many micro inputs is that your default tx fee may go up so keep an eye on that

If you have received a lot of spamming transactions, you could switch to bitcoin core, enable coin control and choose to not spend those dusts.

Nope, I did receive such spams with an address that has never been posted anywhere and I don't faucets. So the spammers likely got their target addresses by monitoring activity on blockchain.
