I wonder if someone was thinking they would hoard a bunch of testnet coins, I know this has happened in the past and that's why testnet was reset (twice).  I hope it doesn't have to get reset again because the more often that testnet gets reset, the less complexity and length it has and less of a good model for mainnet it is.

Your assumption is correct, though I've  made it clear that's not acceptable.

I mined some Testnet coins just for fun.
I offer to sell at a very low, symbolic price of 0.0001 BTC per Testnet coin.
I gave out 1000 testnet coins for nothing. You want 0.1BTC for that amount. That's not symbolic...  120,000 testnet coins have been minted in under a week on my free testnet pool with hardware that would mine 0.1BTC over about 6 months mining real bitcoin... Symbolic would be 1 satoshi per testnet bitcoin.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Anyone want some testnet coins? I've got the odd thousand spare...  Wink
If you still have some test bucks to share, would you mind sending some to this address : mryyjA6YpPCJ24MsSN7YnCK6M3NZoUAwxb ?
The address is used for one of my demos
Thx !

EDIT: Just saw your last message about coins sent to the faucet. Never mind !

If coin hoarding is not a problem for Bitcoin, then why would it be a problem for testnet?

Its not a problem for bitcoin if they are sparse, but its a problem for testcoins. Sucks to test something if you dont have to coins to test with.

Im not really here, its just your imagination.
