How the fuck did you people screw up his name from LaughingBear to LuckyShare.

I have played a great part of this. Multiple people screwed up, though:

  • slush told me "luckybear" at first
  • I wrote "luckyshare" instead of "luckybear" (my mistake)
  • On reddit, I wrote "luckystrike" (my mistake again)
  • Someone else seems to have rescrambled that to "luckyshare"

It's pretty funny when you think of it: "so what happened on your great bitcoin halving day", "well, we had big discussion about the name of the guy who found block 210,000". haha.


Are you sure it wasn't FuzzyBear ?   Wink

Does luckyshare have a forum account? Or the miner at BTC Guild who solved 209999? I was going to give them special forum titles.

That is a nice gesture Theymos.  We should get them on here if they don't.

what I like about the fact that fees were so enourmous: That's exactly how satoshi planned it: tx fees will take over as mining incentive while block reward is decreased.

Of course until such fees are the norm, we'll have to wait a little bit longer.

Strength in numbers; fewer transaction fees are needed now to equal the block reward.

posted this in the newby section earlier, reposting here now that I have been given access. 

I am very new to mining, and have been at it less than a week.  This was the first block I have ever found.  I decided to become involved in Bitcoins, because I feel that it could be the answer to all the evils of government controlled currency.  This isn't a "get rich quick scheme" for me. I believe that what we are doing can change the world.  I am incredibly honored to be a part of Crypto-Currency history. 

Thanks to Slush's pool for letting me join, if any new miners are out there looking for a great pool  https://mining.bitcoin.cz/ 

In case this post somehow goes down in history, I just want to say....   FUCK The Federal Reserve System.

It's not like there is such a thing as a "lucky streak" Wink.

It's more like he "used his good luck" on finding block 210,000. Which is pretty altruistic because there's no great monetary reward to this (except the bonus slush gave him and maybe some donation).

So thanks for not using your 1 in 100,000 chance on some lottery ticket, laughingbear, but on some Bitcoin fame. It's way cooler, too.

EDIT: and congratulations on your new forum title. It's pretty cool. Envy!

Can someone explain why revenue is not dropping per block for me on deepbit? Is it because hashing power was halved? How come nobody stopped hashing on deepbit (still at 3500GH)... just coincidence? I'm confused!

The reward halving came a bit more quickly than it should have if a bunch of hashing power hadn't shown up out of nowhere. Where did it come from?

maybe some ASIC producer (one that already has a working product ready to ship) is using the switching-off of GPU rigs as a cover to secretly "test" their devices on mainnet Wink

Congrats, Brother.  Welcome to the forums. 

I hereby submit to the forum for consideration, that the 210Kth block shall be called the "laughingbear" block.  "Halving block" sucks.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."
