191  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Future issue: limited number of transactions per block? on: July 07, 2011, 07:04:51 AM
Increasing the number of transactions in a block does not increase the amount of time needed to find the solution for that block.

It's "A Massively Multiplayer Role Playing Game"

Correct.  But it's "An MMORPG".  You don't say the entire acronym out in your head when you read it, hence you pronounce it as if it started with a vowel.  It's the same as something like "Give me an M!  Give me a U!".  M is a consonant, but when you say the actual letter, it begins with a vowel.  U is a vowel, but when you say the actual letter, it starts with a consonant.
194  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What are the odds to never mine a block with 500Mh/s solo? on: June 25, 2011, 12:49:31 AM
My result: 70% to never mine a single block ever.
If you take "ever" as in "in eternity", you have a probability of 100% to mine a block, hell, you're even 100% likely to mine 1000 blocks with only 1 hash per second!

Please specify a REAL timeframe like "within the next 5 years", not infinity!

Not true as there's a finite number of bitcoins.

But not a finite number of blocks.  After we stop minting coins, there will still be new blocks with transaction fees.

True, but I was under the assumption he meant a block that produces a BTC prize, not a fee.

You don't get charged a fee for generating a block in the future.  YOU get awarded the fee, so it's still a BTC prize.

an MMORPG

why does everyone make this mistake when it's clearly a

The rules for "A" and "An" are not based on the actual letters, but on whether your mouth starts open or closed on the following word (which USUALLY corresponds to vowel/consonant), and in this case, since you say "Em Em Oh Are Pee Gee" not "morpig" (or something), it is "an MMORPG".  There are some other examples, but they don't come to mind.

EDIT: Also, wow, I'm late to the party, I totally didn't realize this was 7 pages long and that I was responding to something from ages ago.

Well that's it for me. Selling every coin I own. I advise others do the same.

I'll buy them at a dollar a piece.

Yes, the promise of bitcoins, which in TOTAL, at their PEAK was worth less than 40 million dollars (Current Block # * Peak Price) is far more alluring than all of the bank systems relying on SHA256 encryption, all the SSH tunnels to be sniffed, government secrets, crime syndication, encrypted emails, and all the fame of being the one who broke it.


You're off by a factor of 50.

current block# * peak price * 50 coins per block.

There's over 6.6 million coins out there right now.  Even at $15 that's $99 million.  At the peak it was ~  6 million * $30.  180 million.

Right, forgot that, still, paltry compared to the lure of all the above.

Perhaps they got a hidden volume inside their hidden volume (as deep as you wanna go), now that hidden volumes are becoming a common practice having a decoy hidden volume can be healthy for the soles of your feet....

Finding a collision isn't breaking SHA256.  Breaking SHA256 (or at least, any manner of breaking that would matter to us) is finding a FAST and EFFICIENT way to find a collision, other than brute forcing.  There is no way to do this that is currently known, and it's stood up to many many cryptographic tests and analysis, people trying to hack it for years.

well its different when you just work for your guaranteed wages and when there is a instant free big money floating, people could improve in their skills considerably with the right motivation.

However this is most probably a supercomputer working for a short time. Or more probably a good luck.

Also, nothing says this is the same person.  If it went to multiple addresses, it could very well be multiple people.  If it went to the same address, that could be one of the larger pools' addresses.  The conspiracy theorists in this forum are growing thick as mud.
