how much time can pass between one person saying he has sent the bitcoins and the other recieving them ? also i will like to note that i have been reading extensively about bitcoins for two days and no one ever mentioned the "voluntary fee" of 0.01 for transactions ... without that detail i think the information i have been receiving from the bitcoin organization and other bitcoins players is not totally fair , it very much looks like a trap to me ... does anyone agree?
I had asked that question earlier. I hope it does get changed soon too. I was thinking of a lot of innovative ways to develop for bitcoin in the future, many of which would require mass micro payouts (0.1 at least).
Another gripe I had about it was that someone told me the fee goes back to the person who solved the block, but in my case (and many others) we were a part of pools that mined those blocks. Who in that case gets the fee?
Hopefully in the future mandatory fees will only be imposed to abusers.
