61  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Is there a way to parse the blockchain to see which blocks have spent coinbases? on: March 09, 2014, 03:28:30 AM
There HAS to be a program for this or something. It's unbelievably stressful manually ciphering through one block at a time.
I mean blocks which have their coins spent after being mined.

Just look at the extra nonce in the coinbase field of the coinbase transaction.

The counter is monotonically incrementing at a constant pace.

Also this can be used to find how many computers/threads where mining at  some  time (until they get powered-off). Each thread has another monotonically incrementing ExtraNonce variable.
Absolutely undeniable stuff:
We know Hal mined block 78.
We know Satoshi mined blocks 0 and 9.

Given the extraNonce is incremented by the bitcoin client, the upward trends above sergio theorized as being single clients. This is sound.
The extraNonce seems to reset time to time, but I have no idea why or at what occasion.
Perhaps only satoshi's client did this? Maybe everyone else's extraNonces are just pseudorandom?
I'm going to look into this some more.
63  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Which of the first 36,000 blocks have spent generation outputs? on: March 09, 2014, 12:25:06 AM
Is this information compiled somewhere? It's a pain to manually scan the blockchain, block by block.

Is there a way to view the extraNonce value of a generation tx? Huh

If you're reading this, you followed a link in a forged satoshi quote.

73  Other / Beginners & Help / BitcoinWisdom Spam :( on: January 09, 2014, 10:54:30 PM

I registered for BitcoinWisdom lately and got this email in broken english pointing to a fake bitcoinwisdom site with a download link and the promise of $500 in bitcoin waiting there (keeping in mind that btcwisdom doesn't store bitcoins for users.)
I wanted to post this in case anyone else gets this. More people fall for these things than you might expect. Undecided
I'll continue using bitcoinwisdom but I have no idea how this unaffiliated spammer got my address!

75  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Can bitcoin stop the NSA from reading our mail? on: November 25, 2013, 12:47:59 AM
We can sign a message using our private key, which can then be verified to have been signed by the owner of the key.
Can we encrypt a message with only a bitcoin address so that only the owner of the private key of that address can decrypt the digest? Huh

77  Economy / Speculation / BTCChina ath is $800? on: November 18, 2013, 09:16:27 PM
BTCChina topped at 4879元, equal to $800.89, and is currently at 4750元, equal to $778.99.
Why so high? Is it like Mt.Gox, where withdrawals cannot be processed? Or is it because yuan is to difficult for arbitragers to obtain?

Could this mean the twelve agreeing countries are making the next step to outlawing Namecoin, and possibly its older bro BTC?

Dispute!
