241  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: btcd: a bitcoind alternative written in Go on: January 01, 2014, 06:06:42 PM
any dev who makes the argument about having 1 bitcoin is talking rubbish. bitcoind itself has changed massively since its inception and will continue to do so. the problem is people are too trigger happy to go and make destructive changes to the bitcoin consensus core which is both dangerous and harms consensus. bitcoin should be kept pure and simple. sorry but i don't want all the contracts and new prototype theoretical features thrown into bitcoin. by all means use the blockchain (people will anyway), but this stuff is so new. bitcoin should be left alone because it works, and needs to be protected.

for example:

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/commit/f5857e5c

the sighash is one of the hardest parts of bitcoin. this is not a place I
would optimise.

compare both versions:

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/f5857e5cb5fb03bee9c05d1dd6ba2621cac49179/src/script.cpp#L978

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/881a85a22d76c875f519cd54388a419ec6f70857/src/script.cpp#L976

don't mean to criticise sipa since he is working hard. but this is your precious code by satoshi having a radical redesign.

qrius1111 did you use the install-sx.sh script? http://sx.dyne.org/install-sx.sh

I recommend all to use git until next release which is coming soon.

Hi, I've been upgrading the server to the latest ZMQ.

Try an alternative one here:

maybe this one: tcp://obelisk.bysh.me:9091

Change it in your .sx.cfg (you can copy the file from PREFIX/share/sx/sx.cfg

edit: retry now, I was upgrading the servers but they're back now.

Since we can not eliminate the bottleneck for now, we should seek to control the damage to productivity by isolating and freezing consensus relevant code base of the reference implementation.
"Freezing" is the opposite of progress.

I don't want Bitcoin to change. Changing and extending the protocol/standard is the worst thing we can do. There's far more important stuff that needs to be done implementation side. Moving forwards means freezing the standard, that's why I want to diversify.

yep but it all starts somewhere. eventually we will use these things for many uses, and it will be very powerful. pure trade is the way. think what the internet did for publishing.

I'm excited about these developments as more than just a twitter or Bitmessage drop in replacement.

they have the potential for things like silk road seller pages or blogs. I wrote more here:

that async principle is a solid one to create for a bitcoin impl.

been checking in on btcd every so often, and the design/arch decisions are solid.

the code is the spec is a bit of a crap base for the future of finance and something we'll leave behind. the more of us there are, the quicker bitcoin will move forward. decentralise everything and distribute the power. we need a solid infrastructure and the bitcoind is really poor.

Quote
For example, the transaction script language has a well-defined set of allowed opcodes.  However, it doesn't check the scripts for invalid opcodes until it actually executes them.  This means that you can craft valid scripts which have invalid and nearly arbitrary data in dead execution branches.  This is an outright bug in my mind.  There are also a couple of other things in the transaction scripts which are indisputable bugs.

yes omg this is terrible. output scripts dont even need to parse. but there's plenty more like the copy paste serialization code, deeply nested locking mechanisms, cscript inheriting an std:: container (forbidden by standard), undefined behaviour (using integer loop around / invalid casts), non-modular code, ... more i can't recall right now

251  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Freezing BitCoin addresses by regulating miners on: December 27, 2013, 12:45:58 AM
Whilst I think it's inevitable, this sort of legal framework would ultimately be self regulating and so should not be feared. BitCoin is a system for agreeing on a global consensus around the ordering of transactions. If that consensus is truly a consensus then there will no be real controversy over the freeze orders and few (or no) miners will ignore them. Consider temporarily freezing the assets of Gadaffi or Mubarak as examples.

This would destroy Bitcoin. More control and surveillance. I don't think this is what Satoshi envisioned.

Quote from: Satoshi Nakamoto
Yes, [we will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography,] but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years. Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks like Napster, but pure P2P networks like Gnutella and Tor seem to be holding their own.

I've made significant performance increases for the blockchain by creating a custom database that outperforms the more conventional LevelDB. This is still a work in progress and won't be in libbitcoin at least for some time. You can read more about my research here:

https://wiki.unsystem.net/index.php/Libbitcoin/Blockchain

More optimisation is possible too.

insult the empiricism of doge? could you even graph an elliptic curve if pressed? you'd probably produce some cosine abomination. you are a cretin and a bottomfeeder of the sphere of altcoinialism. come at me. in a battle of wits, i will erase from your mind the thoughts of hope or pride. you will never leave the dark recesses of despair in which i will imprison you. you will never know another day of peace. you will forever look over your shoulder in fear that a greater intellect is there preparing to strike. fuck with me, and i will fuck back exponentially. you have been warned.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? Iíll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and Iíve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and Iím the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. Youíre fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and thatís just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little ďcleverĒ comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldnít, you didnít, and now youíre paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. Youíre fucking dead, kiddo.

nun, nia grupo kreos projekton por levi mono de 100k eur. la projekto priestas krei bitmono-monujo. ni havas ravan videon kiu ellasigxos baldaux. ni havas bonan proponon por la komunumo.

ni povas konstrui la mondon, kiun ni volas vidi!
Kia surprizo.
Mi ne sciis ke ankaŭ vi estas esperantisto.

Ĉu iu scias se estis jam tradukita la vorto Namecoin al Esperanto ?

Jes, mi estas amantoj de multaj movadoj tiel malgrande kiel Linukso, Bitmono (malantaux jaroj), Anarkismo, Okupitdomado .ktp Mi preferas la koncepton de alternativoj kaj kreas komunumoj de pasiaj kreaj personoj.

Cxar la gxusta vorto kiun ni uzas esti Bitmono, mi pensas la gxusta vorto esti Nomomono! Suprize amuza vorto haha

Mi trovis 2 artikolojn pri Bitmono: http://www.esperanto.be/fel/mon/viki/011017.php
