1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / wallet bug (overflow errors when generating transactions) on: January 19, 2012, 11:48:13 PM
EDIT: Bug turned out to only affect the display of values and has been fixed.

I recently tried out the wallet and found a nasty bug. Don't use it until this is fixed.

Here is the bug report I sent them
I put 73.13086 BTC in my wallet. When I decided to send money the blocks I was presented with to confirm didn't make sense. The figures didn't add up and some numbers were negative.

Sending 50 BTC from address A containing all my current bitcoins to B results in the following outputs (Y is what I believe to be your internal address):

B 7.05032704 (exactly 50 BTC mod 2^31 Satoshis)
A -19.82881296
Y 0.01

Other transactions produce results consistent with signed 32-bit integer arithmetic. I've decided not to accept any of these transactions.

Go here, a better post (and they beat me to posting it).
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / wiki gives 403 Forbidden on: May 31, 2011, 08:21:55 PM
When I try to access I get a 403 Forbidden error message. It is down or something?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Lower min transaction amount on: May 19, 2011, 11:49:26 AM
As bitcoin is getting more and more popular the value of bitcoins has increased. We need to lower the minimum feeless transaction limit (for example I can't send someone 5 cents). I would like to suggest we lower the minimum feeless transaction limit to 0.001 (we need to do this now because to change will take time to take effect because people don't upgrade instantly).

I created a meetup page on the wiki, please add and edit more meetups.
8  Economy / Economics / Why governments like inflationary currency on: April 22, 2011, 01:57:50 PM
Governments tax all forms of income. One form they tax is income made on investments or through bank interest. However the measure of constant value they use is their very own inflating currencies. Since they are decreasing in value you must claim interest (and pay tax) on it in order to keep a constant value stored. Thus, the faster money inflates the more tax governments make.

Combine this observation with the fact that what will probably happen when governments finally run out of money is hyperinflation (me thinks they will probably shy away from default at first). As the currency inflates not only will their debts decrease in value, the tax they make will also increase.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The problem with transaction fees on: March 26, 2011, 08:19:29 PM
Consider a world where mining only pays out transaction fees. Almost all miners charge a transaction fee of t and all users pay a transaction fee of t on their transactions.

One miner decides to increase his profits by charging a smaller transaction fee. He publicly announces his intention and many users reduce their fee to be on par with the new fee he has announced. The miner increases his profits (because he processes more transactions) and the users save money. All other miners are forced to reduce their fees as well in order to make any transaction fees at all.

This process continually repeats itself until transaction fees are reduced to their smallest possible value and very little mining is done. This leaves the blockchain venerable. One solution is continue to pay out a block reward forever. What do people think?
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Announcing Pycoin, a (partial) bitcoin protocol implementation in python3 on: March 03, 2011, 10:46:53 AM
I been implementing bitcoin in python3. The result can be found on Gitorious. It intended to work in largely the same way as bitcoind, with all frontend programs communicating by IPC.

It is implemented around a select loop and does not use threads at all (this is one thing that makes it unique). Currently it connects to a client at, comunicates for a bit and dies when it recieves a block message (usually the one it requests). It can connect to multiple clients at once, but makes not real attempt to do so (trying to connect to a machine that can't possibly exist doesn't count).

I have an 15 iTunes card which I don't want. Does anyone here want to buy it for bitcoins?
12  Bitcoin / Project Development / Letter to FSF (Nevermind, someone sent one already) on: December 05, 2010, 03:05:08 PM
The FSF is going to be easy to persuade to use bitcoins. Lets send them a letter (adapted from CCC one).

Suggestions and pledges are very welcome.


Dear Free Software Foundation,
