At lease the stress testing morons are showing others what happen with the transactions volume hit a mark and the bitcoin system is not ready with a bigger block size, other morons would ratter wait 6 hours for a confirmation or pay higher fees.

Hey guys id like to say thank you for taking this testing that youre doing well beyond what you need to. While im sure the testing is a positive thing for the whole bitcoin community, im also sure all it has done for me so far is fuck me over. Due to this test ive been unable to withdraw my coins from an online casino(transactions for deposits havent confirmed), so instead of taking a win i degened all my chips off continuing to play. Not your fault im sure. you werent the degen pressing the buttons right? Yes thats correct, you werent, but you are the reason i couldnt withdraw. Youre also the reason the very micro amount of btc that i have left is stuck between 2 exchanges. 18 hours and still no confirmations thats fucking awesome. THANKS again.

Instead of having a good week, making a few dollars, and enjoying my relaxation time i am now broke and pissed off. You tech guys should really pat yourselves on the back for being such great people. I hope 1 day i get to return the favor to all of you.

this is no longer a Test it was the first and second time, and a lot of people (including me) found it interesting and wanted to know the results.
but as it continues to happen and most importantly since it is hurting the bitcoin users more than anything else, it is an Attack.

i was wondering where are all the developers right now. i was looking at reddit posts and i couldn't find any comments from anybody important on the matter and what they are doing to prevent this!!

Well, I think it's good news. Let's combat a real attack and lets see how Bitcoin does before it goes mainstream. Let us see how strong the technology is at this point.
If this doesn't convince people we need a bigger blocksize then I have no idea what will.

In the grand scheme I think this test or attack is a good thing.  Maybe it will light a fire under some people's asses and get them to realize that we actually do need change, and not just some greedy developers keeping the block size small so they can make a fortune from it.  These things need to be resolved before BTC can go mainstream.  We need more stability in the network.

i dont know is this matter only because of low fees

yesterday i saw, a fee like 0.002 for a few BTC didnt get confirmed, it was sent on 7/6/2015 (i dont wether it has been confirmed now or not)
i also saw, a fee 0.0001 for a bitcoin transaction got confirmed

mine, sended 5 mbtc to a friend with 0.0001 fee, never get confirmed, it has more than 30 hours now

sigh, this is suck

BC didnt do shit
i guess this is normal to them

even op behaves like some addicted gambling kid, I fully understand, that lot of "average Joe" users are affected and may start being angry because of this non-comfort situation. bitcoin is still in early development phase in this problem will be fixed for sure with bigger blocks, at least I hope so.

I agree with the first part that it should hopefully being about a change to the block size, but how do the devs profit from keeping it low? Everybody knows that it can't stay like this forever so why not act now?

Also, does anyone have the stats or charts on how much extra stress or transactions this test has put onto the blockchain?

This is definitely an attack because its been running for so long.

I thought they had finally stopped spamming today because there were about 15k unconfirmed transactions, then it went down to 12k unconfirmed. However, it's now back up to 15k unconfirmed.

Is the spam attack still ongoing? Yesterday it went to over 20k unconfirmed transactions, so 15k is a bit of an improvement.

This is why bitcoin is better than the FIAT currencies Wink, I hope that in the next few week someone will find a good and valid solution to this problem (I'm not talking about the increase of the size block).

Sad to hear that, you loose few BTC while they are into under testing the Blockchain, it happens man, t is matter of your luck. Try next time you will win more than what you had expected once they sort out the patches required for vulnerable security holes.

Coblee, the Litecoin developer, has the answer with an elegant and simple fix...

"CT: Can you explain why Litecoin is ‘immune’ to the spam attack?

CL: The fix implemented in Litecoin is just to charge the sender a fee for each tiny output he creates. For example, in this specific attack, the sender is charged one fee for sending to 34 tiny outputs of 0.00001 BTC. With the fix, that fee would be 34 times as much. So it would cost the attacker a lot more to perform the spam attack. The concept is fairly simple: the sender should pay for each tiny output he/she creates."

We need bitcoinXT ASAP.
BitcoinXT exists.  You may run it if you think it has better spam filtering.

Sjå https://bitmynt.no for veksling av bitcoin mot norske kroner.  Trygt, billig, raskt og enkelt sidan 2010.
I buy with EUR and other currencies at a fair market price when you want to sell.  See http://bitmynt.no/eurprice.pl
Warning: "Bitcoin" XT, Classic, Unlimited and the likes are scams. Don't use them, and don't listen to their shills.

Nobody has attacked Litecoin with spam yet, so that's only an untested theoretical solution. Litecoin's transaction fees must be less than Bitcoin's so it might be economically viable to spam attack Litecoin. If that solution was used in Bitcoin it would make it more expensive to spam attack, but anyone with enough money could still attack it.

And these attacks may actually last months or years. But that is not the problem, Bitcoin handles it pretty well, all of my transactions get confirmed normally without any problem.

My guess is that OP is victim of poor wallet implementation (from the Casino he is using) that doesn't pay the correct fee (per KB). The attack only woke up a problem that has been always sleeping.

Complain to the Casino and/or switch to a Casino with a correct fee management wallet.
