to clarify
those 3 txn, one is for 3.xx btc with a 9.xx btc fee, a 21.xx btc txn with a 21.xx fee and another txn with a 64BTC fee

Miners on Ozcoin thank this generous person
I'm just curious to know how it happened, testing software? trying to add non standard fee? operator error? Smiley
cheers

Did it get paid to the miners, cause my reward was double what it normally is.  Grin

First there was Fire, then Electricity, and now Bitcoins Wink

Yes, luckily for Ozcoin miners we are one of the few pools that pay out txn fees Cheesy

I lost out a little one of my rigs was mining for ckolivas on a stratum pool :/ lol

You can probably thank the combination of Brainwallet.org + someone not knowing what they are doing and transacting with amounts above their competency level (or someone making a rookie mistake).

With BrainWallet, you need to spend every bit of coin used as inputs, otherwise whatever you don't spend goes as fees.

Care to ellaborate, please ? Is this only applicable to offline transactions, or also if I import the brainwallet address to a working client ? Thanks in advance.

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

thanks Stephen

 raw transactions API was mentioned as a potential reason in #bitcoin-dev
even sparked some discussion of sanity checks

Ya, sorry ... when manually building a transaction through BrainWallet's Transactions page, it doesn't stop you or notify you that you are not spending the full amount from the inputs.  Which, causes the unspent amount to go to the miner.


or also if I import the brainwallet address to a working client ?

No, clients that construct the transaction will handle the change properly, either to a new address in the wallet or with some other method.

But with the Bitcoin.org client supporting raw transactions now, anyone constructing their own transaction and sending it through that API has this same potential issue.   Raw transactions is a powerful tool, but a dangerous one too if you aren't careful.

Yup - a quite painful lesson to whoever paid those fees - I would like to suggest that perhaps we add a "max fee amount" as an optional addition to the sendrawtransaction RPC with a fairly low default value:

Code:
sendrawtransaction <hex string> [maxfee=0.01]

Hmm... let's just quote myself here for posterity - I think this will probably qualify as 2013's first "epic facepalm" on Bitcointalk.

I don't understand.  Why is this a facepalm?

CIYAM managed to accidentally pay about 110 BTC in transaction fees a day or two ago.

Is that why my BW transaction here http://blockchain.info/tx/54268b0051821f4b25e3e863214ddd1490b22dc154f6fbe6ed7eca334501dba8

Threw away 1 satoshi as a fee?

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.
