141  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Killing off the Alert System on: September 10, 2016, 01:09:27 AM
With 0.13 having removed the alert system, it seems that steps are now being taken to completely kill it off entirely. See
142  Other / Meta / Account name change: knightdk --> achow101 on: September 06, 2016, 03:00:30 PM
Hash: SHA1

This is just to let everyone know that I have changed my account name (uid 290195) from knightdk to achow101. The account formerly known as achow101 (uid 466100, my alt) has been renamed to achow101_alt.

Version: GnuPG v1

143  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Core version 0.13.0 Released on: August 23, 2016, 04:18:47 PM
When downloading and installing this version, please carefully verify it. Instructions here.

Bitcoin Core version 0.13.0 is now available from:

This is a new major version release, including new features, various bugfixes
and performance improvements, as well as updated translations.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:

To receive security and update notifications, please subscribe to:


Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8th, 2014,
an OS initially released in 2001. This means that not even critical security
updates will be released anymore. Without security updates, using a bitcoin
wallet on a XP machine is irresponsible at least.

In addition to that, with 0.12.x there have been varied reports of Bitcoin Core
randomly crashing on Windows XP. It is not clear
what the source of these crashes is, but it is likely that upstream
libraries such as Qt are no longer being tested on XP.

We do not have time nor resources to provide support for an OS that is
end-of-life. From 0.13.0 on, Windows XP is no longer supported. Users are
suggested to upgrade to a newer verion of Windows, or install an alternative OS
that is supported.

No attempt is made to prevent installing or running the software on Windows XP,
you can still do so at your own risk, but do not expect it to work: do not
report issues about Windows XP to the issue tracker.

Notable Changes

Database cache memory increased

As a result of growth of the UTXO set, performance with the prior default
database cache of 100 MiB has suffered.
For this reason the default was changed to 300 MiB in this release.

For nodes on low-memory systems, the database cache can be changed back to
100 MiB (or to another value) by either:

  • Adding `dbcache=100` in bitcoin.conf
  • Changing it in the GUI under `Options → Size of database cache`

Note that the database cache setting has the most performance impact
during initial sync of a node, and when catching up after downtime.

bitcoin-cli: arguments privacy

The RPC command line client gained a new argument, -stdin
to read extra arguments from standard input, one per line until EOF/Ctrl-D.
For example:

$ src/bitcoin-cli -stdin walletpassphrase
    ..... press Ctrl-D here to end input

It is recommended to use this for sensitive information such as wallet
passphrases, as command-line arguments can usually be read from the process
table by any user on the system.

C++11 and Python 3

Various code modernizations have been done. The Bitcoin Core code base has
started using C++11. This means that a C++11-capable compiler is now needed for
building. Effectively this means GCC 4.7 or higher, or Clang 3.3 or higher.

When cross-compiling for a target that doesn't have C++11 libraries, configure with
./configure --enable-glibc-back-compat ... LDFLAGS=-static-libstdc++.

For running the functional tests in `qa/rpc-tests`, Python3.4 or higher is now

Linux ARM builds

Due to popular request, Linux ARM builds have been added to the uploaded

The following extra files can be found in the download directory or torrent:

  • bitcoin-${VERSION}-arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.gz: Linux binaries for the most
      common 32-bit ARM architecture.
  • bitcoin-${VERSION}-aarch64-linux-gnu.tar.gz: Linux binaries for the most
      common 64-bit ARM architecture.

ARM builds are still experimental. If you have problems on a certain device or
Linux distribution combination please report them on the bug tracker, it may be
possible to resolve them.

Note that Android is not considered ARM Linux in this context. The executables
are not expected to work out of the box on Android.

Compact Block support (BIP 152)

Support for block relay using the Compact Blocks protocol has been implemented
in PR 8068.

The primary goal is reducing the bandwidth spikes at relay time, though in many
cases it also reduces propagation delay. It is automatically enabled between
compatible peers.

BIP 152

As a side-effect, ordinary non-mining nodes will download and upload blocks
faster if those blocks were produced by miners using similar transaction
filtering policies. This means that a miner who produces a block with many
transactions discouraged by your node will be relayed slower than one with
only transactions already in your memory pool. The overall effect of such
relay differences on the network may result in blocks which include widely-
discouraged transactions losing a stale block race, and therefore miners may
wish to configure their node to take common relay policies into consideration.

Hierarchical Deterministic Key Generation

Newly created wallets will use hierarchical deterministic key generation
according to BIP32 (keypath m/0'/0'/k').
Existing wallets will still use traditional key generation.

Backups of HD wallets, regardless of when they have been created, can
therefore be used to re-generate all possible private keys, even the
ones which haven't already been generated during the time of thebackup.
Attention: Encrypting the wallet will create a new seed which requires
a new backup!

Wallet dumps (created using the dumpwallet RPC) will contain the deterministic
seed. This is expected to allow future versions to import the seed and all
associated funds, but this is not yet implemented.

HD key generation for new wallets can be disabled by -usehd=0. Keep in
mind that this flag only has affect on newly created wallets.
You can't disable HD key generation once you have created a HD wallet.

There is no distinction between internal (change) and external keys.

HD wallets are incompatible with older versions of Bitcoin Core.

Pull request, BIP 32

Segregated Witness

The code preparations for Segregated Witness ("segwit"), as described in BIP 141, BIP 143, BIP 144, and BIP 145 are
finished and included in this release.  However, BIP 141 does not yet specify
activation parameters on mainnet, and so this release does not support segwit
use on mainnet.  Testnet use is supported, and after BIP 141 is updated with
proposed parameters, a future release of Bitcoin Core is expected that
implements those parameters for mainnet.

Furthermore, because segwit activation is not yet specified for mainnet,
version 0.13.0 will behave similarly as other pre-segwit releases even after a
future activation of BIP 141 on the network.  Upgrading from 0.13.0 will be
required in order to utilize segwit-related features on mainnet (such as signal
BIP 141 activation, mine segwit blocks, fully validate segwit blocks, relay
segwit blocks to other segwit nodes, and use segwit transactions in the
wallet, etc).

Mining transaction selection ("Child Pays For Parent")

The mining transaction selection algorithm has been replaced with an algorithm
that selects transactions based on their feerate inclusive of unconfirmed
ancestor transactions.  This means that a low-fee transaction can become more
likely to be selected if a high-fee transaction that spends its outputs is

With this change, the -blockminsize command line option has been removed.

The command line option -blockmaxsize remains an option to specify the
maximum number of serialized bytes in a generated block.  In addition, the new
command line option -blockmaxweight has been added, which specifies the
maximum "block weight" of a generated block, as defined by BIP 141 (Segregated Witness).

In preparation for Segregated Witness, the mining algorithm has been modified
to optimize transaction selection for a given block weight, rather than a given
number of serialized bytes in a block.  In this release, transaction selection
is unaffected by this distinction (as BIP 141 activation is not supported on
mainnet in this release, see above), but in future releases and after BIP 141
activation, these calculations would be expected to differ.

For optimal runtime performance, miners using this release should specify
-blockmaxweight on the command line, and not specify -blockmaxsize.
Additionally (or only) specifying -blockmaxsize, or relying on default
settings for both, may result in performance degradation, as the logic to
support -blockmaxsize performs additional computation to ensure that
constraint is met.  (Note that for mainnet, in this release, the equivalent
parameter for -blockmaxweight would be four times the desired
-blockmaxsize.  See BIP 141 for additional details.)

In the future, the -blockmaxsize option may be removed, as block creation is
no longer optimized for this metric.  Feedback is requested on whether to
deprecate or keep this command line option in future releases.

Reindexing changes

In earlier versions, reindexing did validation while reading through the block
files on disk. These two have now been split up, so that all blocks are known
before validation starts. This was necessary to make certain optimizations that
are available during normal synchronizations also available during reindexing.

The two phases are distinct in the Bitcoin-Qt GUI. During the first one,
"Reindexing blocks on disk" is shown. During the second (slower) one,
"Processing blocks on disk" is shown.

It is possible to only redo validation now, without rebuilding the block index,
using the command line option -reindex-chainstate (in addition to
-reindex which does both). This new option is useful when the blocks on disk
are assumed to be fine, but the chainstate is still corrupted. It is also
useful for benchmarks.

Removal of internal miner

As CPU mining has been useless for a long time, the internal miner has been
removed in this release, and replaced with a simpler implementation for the
test framework.

The overall result of this is that setgenerate RPC call has been removed, as
well as the -gen and -genproclimit command-line options.

For testing, the generate call can still be used to mine a block, and a new
RPC call generatetoaddress has been added to mine to a specific address. This
works with wallet disabled.

New bytespersigop implementation

The former implementation of the bytespersigop filter accidentally broke bare
multisig (which is meant to be controlled by the permitbaremultisig option),
since the consensus protocol always counts these older transaction forms as 20
sigops for backwards compatibility. Simply fixing this bug by counting more
accurately would have reintroduced a vulnerability. It has therefore been
replaced with a new implementation that rather than filter such transactions,
instead treats them (for fee purposes only) as if they were in fact the size
of a transaction actually using all 20 sigops.

Low-level P2P changes

  • The optional new p2p message "feefilter" is implemented and the protocol
      version is bumped to 70013. Upon receiving a feefilter message from a peer,
      a node will not send invs for any transactions which do not meet the filter
      feerate. BIP 133
  • The P2P alert system has been removed in PR #7692 and the alert P2P message
      is no longer supported.
  • The transaction relay mechanism used to relay one quarter of all transactions
      instantly, while queueing up the rest and sending them out in batch. As
      this resulted in chains of dependent transactions being reordered, it
      systematically hurt transaction relay. The relay code was redesigned in PRs
      #7840 and #8082, and now always batches transactions announcements while also
      sorting them according to dependency order. This significantly reduces orphan
      transactions. To compensate for the removal of instant relay, the frequency of
      batch sending was doubled for outgoing peers.
  • Since PR #7840 the BIP35 mempool command is also subject to batch processing.
      Also the mempool message is no longer handled for non-whitelisted peers when
      NODE_BLOOM is disabled through -peerbloomfilters=0.
  • The maximum size of orphan transactions that are kept in memory until their
      ancestors arrive has been raised in PR #8179 from 5000 to 99999 bytes. They
      are now also removed from memory when they are included in a block, conflict
      with a block, and time out after 20 minutes.
  • We respond at most once to a getaddr request during the lifetime of a
      connection since PR #7856.
  • Connections to peers who have recently been the first one to give us a valid
      new block or transaction are protected from disconnections since PR #8084.

Low-level RPC changes

  • RPC calls have been added to output detailed statistics for individual mempool
      entries, as well as to calculate the in-mempool ancestors or descendants of a
      transaction: see getmempoolentry, getmempoolancestors, getmempooldescendants.
  • gettxoutsetinfo UTXO hash (hash_serialized) has changed. There was a divergence between
      32-bit and 64-bit platforms, and the txids were missing in the hashed data. This has been
      fixed, but this means that the output will be different than from previous versions.
  • Full UTF-8 support in the RPC API. Non-ASCII characters in, for example,
      wallet labels have always been malformed because they weren't taken into account
      properly in JSON RPC processing. This is no longer the case. This also affects
      the GUI debug console.
      - Asm script outputs replacements for OP_NOP2 and OP_NOP3

      - OP_NOP2 has been renamed to OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY by BIP 65

      - OP_NOP3 has been renamed to OP_CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY by BIP 112

      - The following outputs are affected by this change:

        - RPC getrawtransaction (in verbose mode)
        - RPC decoderawtransaction
        - RPC decodescript
        - REST /rest/tx/ (JSON format)
        - REST /rest/block/ (JSON format when including extended tx details)
        - bitcoin-tx -json
  • The sorting of the output of the getrawmempool` output has changed.
  • New RPC commands: generatetoaddress, importprunedfunds, removeprunedfunds, signmessagewithprivkey,
      getmempoolancestors, getmempooldescendants, getmempoolentry,
      createwitnessaddress, addwitnessaddress.
  • Removed RPC commands: setgenerate, getgenerate.
  • New options were added to fundrawtransaction: includeWatching, changeAddress, changePosition and feeRate.

Low-level ZMQ changes

  • Each ZMQ notification now contains an up-counting sequence number that allows
      listeners to detect lost notifications.
      The sequence number is always the last element in a multi-part ZMQ notification and
      therefore backward compatible. Each message type has its own counter.
      PR #7762.

146  Bitcoin / Armory / The new Armory website on: August 17, 2016, 03:09:35 PM
After talking with goatpig, we have decided to launch a new website for the Open Source Armory that goatpig has continued development on.

Visit the site at

The website will announce new releases and important announcements as well as host documentation for Armory. The releases are still hosted on the github page and the official contact for goatpig is still on this forum.

Pull requests to update the site are welcome. Just clone the source, make your changes, and submit a PR to the gh-pages branch.

Hosting and Source
The site is currently hosted using github pages. The source for the site is available at

Credits and license
The site uses the jekyll now theme by Barry Clark. The source code for the site is available under the MIT License.
147  Other / Meta / Another spam bot on: August 17, 2016, 01:45:48 PM
Recently I have been seeing a newly created account creating a post with just the words
Quantum code review
and that being a link to somewhere (some linkedin page IIRC). The title of the post is usually nonsense.

Can we get the anti-spam bot on this? It's getting annoying to report those every single time.

For example:;topicseen#msg15951451
148  Bitcoin / Armory / Armory IRC Channel on: July 24, 2016, 02:17:21 AM
I made one, because why not? It's on freenode, #bitcoin-armory. Web interface link:

The channel is for discussion about the software, upcoming changes, and technical discussion. No Tech Support is allowed in the channel. Those are more easily handled on the forum.
149  Other / Meta / List of all forum boards on: July 14, 2016, 02:11:24 AM
Is there a list of all of the forum boards here on Bitcointalk? Ideally it would be one that is always up to date so that I can do some futureproofing to my account price estimator site.
150  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Segregated Witness has been merged! on: June 24, 2016, 04:26:48 PM
After months of testing, coding, and work, Segregated Witness has finally been merged into Bitcoin Core:

Now that it has been merged, there are a few things that need to be done before release, and many things that will come after Segwit that builds upon it:
151  Other / Meta / Need data from the forum on: June 16, 2016, 01:09:41 PM
I'm thinking about (going to try) using the Google Prediction API: to detect spam. However, in order to do so, it needs to be trained to know what spam and not spam looks like. Would it be possible for the mods or admins to give me a file with all of the posts that were deleted for being spam and the topic they were posted in?

If that is not possible, could the mods, as you delete spam posts, put them into this spreadsheet: on the sheet labeled SPAM.

Users can also help. If you see a post that you think is spam, you can put it into the above spreadsheet. You can also put posts that you think are good and not spam into the sheet on the sheet labeled NOT SPAM. If you put things into the spreadsheet, it would be best not to include quoted stuff.

I know that this sounds like a lot of work for users and mods, but I also think that having a prediction model for spam would be a beneficial thing for this forum.

If anyone wants to help me here, feel free and please do so. If anyone has any suggestions for me for any part of this project, please let me know.
152  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANN] Bitcoin Transaction Fee Booster on: June 11, 2016, 03:12:38 AM
Today I am announcing the Bitcoin Transaction Fee Booster.

This is my response to the constant complaints about users who are waiting a long time for confirmations. The program gives the user two options to increase the fee of their unconfirmed transactions, Replace-By-Fee for senders and Child Pays For Parent for receivers. The software will take the raw hex of a transaction, ask the user for some information, and create an unsigned transaction which can be signed outside of the program. Then the signed transaction can be broadcast from the software.

Using the Fee Booster is very simple and follows a wizard with step by step instructions.

Download the zip file from Extract everything inside to the same folder. Double click the FeeBooster.jar file to start the program.

First you enter the raw hex of the transaction and choose whether you sent or received it. Then, if you sent the transaction, you will be brought to a page which asks you to set the increased fee of the RBF transaction and the output to deduct the fee from. If you received, you will be brought to a page to select the output you want to spend from, the address to send to, and the fee for the child transaction. The next page is the unsigned transaction that the software made and you must take this to your own wallet to be signed. Lastly, the signed transaction can be broadcast from the software.

How it works
The program uses to calculate the optimal fee for the transaction. It also uses's api for retrieving some other information for the transaction. To send the transaction, the program uses the BitcoinJ library.

The program, as of now, does not take your private keys. This is a planned feature to allow signing within the program, but currently that does not happen. The software produces an unsigned transaction which can be independently verified to see that it makes the right transaction. It will also display the transaction id of the broadcasted transaction and that can be verified to be the transaction that the user intended. This software is not malicious

Source code
The Fee Booster is open source. The source code is available at Pull requests are welcome

The Fee Booster is licensed under the GNU General Public License Version 3. The full license can be found at

If you have found this program helpful, please support the developer (me) and donate to 1QDNS5XuUEcdjQn4TU4qvXRnVtVv4CsssC

This software comes as is and may have some bugs. I am not responsible if you happen to lose any of your coins when using this software. Always check the transaction before you send it.

155  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin blockchain fork monitor on: May 03, 2016, 12:43:00 AM
I created a project which monitors the blockchain for all of the intended hard and soft forks. It only supports forks that are assigned a BIP number and have a not insignificant fraction of the Bitcoin Community actively pursuing the fork. The website is

The current fork listing is as follows. It will be updated as new forks come out.
  • BIP 68, 112, 113 (CSV Fork)
  • BIP 109 (Classic fork)
  • BIP 34 (Block v2)
  • BIP 65 (CLTV)
  • BIP 66 (Strict DER sigs)
  • BIP 101 (XT)

The current forking method is as follows. This will also be updated as new fork mechanisms are used.
  • BIP 9 (versionbits)
  • BIP 34 (Double threshold supermajority)
  • BIP 109 (Whatever BIP 109 happens to be using which is a mix of BIP 101 and BIP 9)
(BIP 101's mechanism isn't listed because the fork is dead)

If you have any suggestions and improvements that I can make, please post them here or pm me. Feedback is welcomed.

Also, sorry for the crappy web design, I suck at web design.

This is a website I created which monitors the status of all of the planned forks for Bitcoin. It includes all that have happened in the past, are currently being forked, and will be forked in the future. The forks included are ones that have been assigned a BIP number and are known to be supported by a significant fraction of the Bitcoin community.

Source Code
The source code for the website is available at It is written in Java and makes use of the GWT, ObjectDB, and ZeroMQ libraries.

158  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Clearing the FUD around segwit on: April 02, 2016, 07:12:22 PM
I wrote a post on my website to try to clear up the misunderstandings that people have and spread about Segregated Witness.

If you think I missed something or made a mistake, please let me know and I will change it. Feel free to discuss what I have written however I ask that you keep the discussion more technically oriented and less politically.

If you have any additional questions about segwit, I will try to answer them. If I think it is something that many people will ask or misunderstand, I will add it to the post.

Local rule: no posts about blockstream or claims that blockstream controls core development.

*Disclaimer: I am not one of the developers of Segwit although I have done extensive research and am in the process of writing segwit code for Armory.
159  Other / Meta / question on local rules on: March 31, 2016, 01:49:39 AM
If I create a thread, can I post something like "all posts after this post must follow this new local rule" and will that be enforced by mods as local rules in the Op are?
160  Other / Meta / ignoring users bug on: March 28, 2016, 02:49:54 AM
I was poking around with the ignore user settings, and I found that if you use the "find members" link in the ignore options at;sa=ignprefs, it will add a name with an escaped newline (\n) for some reason and then updating the profile promptly clears the entire list of ignored members!

Also, I found that the admins can't be ignored. They don't have ignore buttons  Shocked
