241  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Core 0.16.0 Released on: April 25, 2018, 08:22:46 PM
Hi all!

I am trying to rescue some BTCs from "wallet.dat corrupt, salvage failed"... I have tried many different things without success. Pywallet, for example, doesn't find anything at all in this wallet.dat. But it found some keys in another wallet.dat...
Please make a post in tech support, not here. Support requests are off topic for this thread.

Don't use a blockchain. It's not just a magic thing that magically makes all of your problems go away. A blockchain may be secure (it also could not, depending on how it is implemented), but it certainly is not fast.
243  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Why Transaction Fees in the First Place? on: April 25, 2018, 05:04:46 AM
Anyone cares to explain why and when transaction fees become mandatory. (Or are they mandatory? As far as I can tell, there is no way I could set 0 tnx fee in electrum.)
Transaction fees are not mandatory, you can create a 0 fee transaction that is consensus valid. However such low fee transactions are considered non standard and thus will not be relayed by most nodes. Because of this standardness rule, most wallets make it impossible to set 0 fee.

Was there a need to introduce a criterion by which miners could sort transactions in some meaningful way (that is, from highest fees to lowest)? Because miners seem to have total freedom when it comes to including transactions in the blocks they mine.

Was this really necessary, perhaps to prevent congestion?
AFAICT, the idea to migrate to fee based selection came up very early on in order to prepare for post-block subsidy world. Since the block subsidy halves every 4 years on average, it will reach negligible amounts fairly soon as it is an exponential decay. In order to make up for the decreased block subsidy, we need transaction fees. The transition from primarily priority to primarily transaction fees needs to happen at some point, and probably sooner is better than later.

Other than that I see no reason to increase the mining reward, after all 12.5BTC seems to be high enough a reward.
It seems how now, but in the fast when all of this happened, 12.5 BTC was in fact a fairly small amount. First of all, the block reward was previously 25 BTC, and before that, 50 BTC. At those times, the block reward was worth a lot less in USD than the block reward is now in USD. It's USD value is so low that it was actually not profitable to be a miner for quite some time or you need to have special conditions (special electric prices, etc.) in order to be profitable.

You deleting my post without warrant matters to me so you decide which way you want it and I will run with it.
Then let's do this publicly here or in the other thread.
245  Other / Meta / Re: Members in this forum are abusing the merit system on: April 25, 2018, 12:31:50 AM
Wise man, I keep clear too most the time so do you want to have this out in private using PM's tomorrow or shall we
keep going here in public ?
I don't care. Whatever you want. This really doesn't matter to me.
246  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Hard Drive Speed running a Core Node on: April 25, 2018, 12:15:42 AM
Syncing Bitcoin Core for you is going to take a long time with slow write speeds. Also, because it is an external drive, the blockchain will have a higher chance of becoming corrupted. So you could store the blockchain on your external drive, but I would not recommend it.
247  Other / Meta / Re: Members in this forum are abusing the merit system on: April 25, 2018, 12:14:39 AM
Was i breaking another term and condition of the site by offering you a bet
Not at all, I just don't gamble.

oh so was someone here who could be trusted given my login password then they would not see lots of posts warning in my message inbox that full thanks to you
and if they looked at the date/time of the warning message and the time my comment was posted and then looked at how long it took to get deleted then they would agree with you that you are not following me around.

Tell me are you a betting man because if you are then agree to give in your position as moderator here and I will agree to keep away if they agree with your version of the story or have you been caught in a lie this time ?

Hang around, I will look to see if the time stamps are available
I am not a betting man so I will not take you up on that offer. However, I would be interesting to see what someone thinks about that.
249  Other / Meta / Re: Nazi moderator has deleted 4 of my posts here today. on: April 24, 2018, 11:44:19 PM
The majority of the posts of yours I removed were reported by other users for being off topic or spam. It's not like I'm actively following every single post you make and deleting each one. You may notice that many of your posts which do not take threads in completely different directions have not been removed even though they certainly could have been as they are within my jurisdiction. Furthermore, you are not the only person whose posts have been removed by me. I remove many posts from many different users each day. This is called moderation, not censorship.

Pack of lies and you know it or would you like to say why this was removed from here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3371680.msg35378165#msg35378165

This is a good point and I am developing an open source 515 byte Cyphertext (Switches left to right)
using byte shift instead of BigINT and MOD's mainly because it needs to be very fast with 1-5mb blocks but clearly
just doubling up to avoid noun detection does not make it bullet proof so I threw in a little byte swapping too.

Sure it can still be cracked but for movie file shares and HTML + Image encryption I think it offers enough
encryption plus the key exchange is done using secp256k so being practical I think I have the right mix.

One size fits all for encryption does not work in my book
What does this post have to do with the topic of "Key agreement protocol Diffie-Hellman using Bitcoin's secp256k1" and whether secp256k1 is safe for ECDH? The discussion in that thread is about secp256k1 and its properties, yet your post talks about something that you are developing and how that works. What you are developing has nothing to do with secp256k1 and is irrelevant to that topic. The only mention of secp256k1 is that you are going to use it for key exchange, but that is not helpful to the topic at all. The focus of this post is not about the properties of secp256k1 and its security but rather about your thing which just happens to use secp256k1. It is a tangent to the topic and it thus off topic, so I removed it.

Furthermore, that post was reported to me by another user, see the below screenshot:



One rule for some and another rule for everyone else with you in charge mate like MooDog being abusive and you don't do naff all about it
but when someone hits back, well your like mother hen protecting your chicks.
In what way is DooMad being abusive? If you use the report to moderator link, I'll see the report and do something about it. As I said earlier, I am not following you around, I am primarily responding to reports.

But that's just what you are doing, bias deleting of posts and pro-bitcoin posters here who get blown away by the facts I present
don't get this treatment so clearly you have a vested interest and you should step down if you cannot control yourself.
In what way have any pro-bitcoin posters been "blown away by the facts" that you present? I have left up a lot of your posts, especially the stuff about lightning network. Tell me, where do you see these people being "blown away"? AFAICT, they are more blown away by your stupidity than any "facts" that you present.

Censorship mate, book burning, cap fits so wear it and me and you should have had this out a long time ago so maybe you thought
I would roll over, your wrong.
And clearly you think that I would roll over. You're wrong.

I call him a nazi for his censorship but if you want I will trust with my login so then you can see all my messages
in the inbox that he keeps deleting and yes some were fair play, others for pointing him out but in lots of case
he is out of order and I will not stand for it.
If you want, post every single message that I have deleted that you have a problem with me deleting and I will give you an explanation for why that was deleted or an apology if something was deleted without cause. If you're going to do that, please also provide a link to the thread that the post was deleted from.

This is bullshit he is talking and he has been following me around all day and one post that i was watching was deleted in second so lets try looking at this post the dick deleted as an example.
I have not been following you around. I have my watchlist (which contains threads that you post in) open on another monitor with it set to autorefresh every minute, so I will see if anyone (including you) posts in one of those threads. So of course I saw your post soon after you posted it, I was online at the time looking at my watchlist.

My job is not to censor you nor is it to "maintain some narrative" (if it were, then a lot of posts from users like franky1 would have been removed). My job is to keep threads on topic and to remove useless posts that add nothing to the discussion.

Also moderators cannot ban anyone. Only admins and global mods can do that, and they only ban if they agree with a moderators suggestion that someone should be banned.



What makes you think I'm a fascist or a nazi? Do you realize that there are more to those terms than just censorship?



Side note: complaining about my moderation in every post you make is off topic for all of the places you are posting and thus your posts will likely be removed if you do that.



Regarding your newest spam about needing to index the site to see what posts are deleted, there's a public modlog although it does not contains the contents of the posts that were removed, just what action was taken.
253  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Electrum doesn't restore right wallet address on: April 23, 2018, 08:20:28 PM
Your address for Bitcoin Core is a segwit address. However there is currently no standard way for exported private keys to indicate that the address to create is a segwit address. When you import that into any wallet, it will assume that the private key is for the non-segwit address, and thus you get the non-segwit address in Electrum.

AFAIK there is currently no way to import private keys for segwit addresses from Bitcoin Core to Electrum.

Thanks, another question, can the coinbase output be P2SH address? And can it be segwit?
Yes. The outputs for a coinbase transaction are just like outputs for any other transaction.
255  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Can coinbase transaction contains multiple destinations? on: April 23, 2018, 12:50:01 AM
Can coinbase transaction contains multiple destinations, or does it have to be one output? For example, for the current reward 12.5, if set the coinbase tx to send 10 to one address and 2.5 to another, is it a valid coinbase tx and will it get confirmed by the network?
Yes, you can have a coinbase transaction with multiple outputs. The sum of the outputs just needs to be less than the block reward (block subsidy plus transaction fees).

quick question.  if i want to build from source in Ubuntu, which one of these do i download:

Source code (tar.gz)
armory_0.96.4_src.tar
Source code (zip)
Downlaod armory_0.96.4_src.tar. The other ones are automatically generated by Github and do not have all of the necessary components.
257  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: script.bin on: April 22, 2018, 10:13:25 PM
A script is a sequence of bytes that gives instructions to the script interpreter. It is not human readable data and attempting to interpret the raw bytes as text as you have done will result in garbage (which is what you are seeing). Typically people examine scripts encoded in hexadecimal or they decode the script into text that represent the opcodes and data provided in the script. The data is usually in hex.

What are you trying to do with the script?

No, you cannot sync from an SPV wallet, that's not how Bitcoin works.

How long does it normally take for the PPA repository to catch up with the latest version?
Sometimes it can take a few weeks.

It is not possible to send BTC to BCH and vice versa. They are two completely separate coins with their own networks and blockchains. BTC and BCH are completely incompatible.
