3  Bitcoin / Pools / Is it time to up the block size limit? on: November 26, 2013, 04:59:37 PM
Shouldn't all the major pools raise their soft cap to 500kB or 1MB. 

Just a thought.  I think this would make room for the tremendous growth that we have seen this month. 

I wanna see what this puppy can do.   Grin

11  Other / Politics & Society / Bitcoin is already illegal in China on: April 09, 2013, 11:32:34 AM
I ran across this article from 2009.  It seems that trade of virtual currencies for real goods is already illegal in China. 

China has been leading the way with the recent rise to $200 so I guess that making bitcoin illegal does not kill the price.  Maybe the people that say prohibition raises the price are correct.

13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Advantage of coin control, response to Mike Hearn on: March 31, 2013, 04:56:54 AM

For something like coin control, parts were merged already, but the GUI wasn't. Well, honestly, if I was maintaining a wallet (I'm not) I wouldn't merge it either. We should be trying to make Bitcoin easier to use and less nerdy, not exposing the guts of the protocol in the UI. Rather I'd want to figure out a list of what people are using the coin control gui for - find a list of use cases then encourage people to implement them in a more direct way. Is this a privacy thing? Is it an accounting thing? Both? Neither? There's probably a better way to solve those problems.

This post is intended to be factual, and answer for what people use coin control for.  Yes it can help a privacy.  But it can make micro-payments (dust) more profitable for the user.

Say a user has 1.02 BTC at one address and .00012381 at another.  When the user wants to pay .2 BTC to another a transaction can be made that draws both inputs and yields the .2 payment output and a .82012381 change output.  This allows a user to merge micro-payments into spendable outputs.  Do this several times and much BTC in fees could be saved making the .00012381 payment worthwhile.

As policymakers in Europe threaten the sanctity of bank deposits in crumbling Cyprus, the faceless operators of decentralized electronic currency Bitcoin must be smiling somewhere.

17  Bitcoin / Mining / The pool Eligius is behaving strangely on: March 10, 2013, 04:27:23 PM
Submitted for your approval.  The block

has many transactions that send one satoshi to another address.  The block is so big it's just under the 500k new soft limit. 

I know this block was found by the Eligius pool because a payout address 17JMTVdHdCqu5WcU1cWeye83JQwXoHZCSm  for the newly generated coins is active at Eligius.

You can even mach up the last payout with the payout in block 357198.

This is a strange thing to happen for a pool so concerned about block chain bloat. 

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What's up with this block 1000 or so transactions that send only one satoshi on: March 10, 2013, 03:32:59 PM
This block has several transactions that send one satoshi to hundreds of different addresses.

What's up with that?
19  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / priority for transactions on: March 02, 2013, 05:29:00 PM
In response to the discussion here:

I don't know why priority and fee/kB need to be considered separately.  Why can't there just be one metric

priority = [sum(value*age) + 1000000000* fee] * (1000 + size of previous txouts) / [(1000 + size of this txn's txouts)* size]

and only priority is used to decide weather to accept or reject a transaction.  That way if someone includes a fee of one satoshi there will be a benefit to the priority of the transaction (by about 100/size) and it's not just a gift to the miners.  I believe this will make a more fluid market for transaction fees.  If the recommended .0001 was added for a fee of a transaction of 1 kb then there would be a priority increase of around 100,000.   Of course, more generally

priority = [sum(value*age) + beta* fee] * (1000 + size of previous txouts) / [(1000 + size of this txn's txouts)* size]

and the value of beta is to be determined.  There is probably a sweet spot for beta.  For example the recommend .0001 fee adds the priority of a one year (or four year) old coin. 

Then we don't have to worry about fee/kb AND priority. 
20  Economy / Speculation / Ultimate bear chart on: March 01, 2013, 02:13:25 AM

You can clearly see that there is an unusual formation of a white tiger approaching from the east AND the west.  This is extremely bearish!  The main bearish signal is the purple arrow though.
