I support the roll back.  Arguments of blockchain immutability are irrelevant here as the attackers actions rendered the blockchain mutable

 No , the attacker found an exploitable bug, and the blockchain is being rewound to undo it, but now we all can ask, 'what else would warrant rewind of blockchain', and this is the problem.

invoking the slippery slope fallacy?

the fear of centralised control vs hyperinflation via malicious exploit, hardly seems a reason to fear big brother fucking with our chain.

Not sure what youmean exactly, there are infinite reasons people might want a rollback, not just bigbrother, that's the point, it's possible now in komodo ecosystem with this precedent,  so it's a huge unknown risk factor for all users from now on. Nobody can say it wouldn't happen again in a way that disadvantages regular users, just can't say that ever again. We have lost the claim to immutable blockchain, forever.

On 6 August 2010, a major vulnerability in the bitcoin protocol was spotted. Transactions weren't properly verified before they were included in the transaction log or blockchain, which let users bypass bitcoin's economic restrictions and create an indefinite number of bitcoins. On 15 August, the vulnerability was exploited; over 184 billion bitcoins were generated in a transaction, and sent to two addresses on the network. Within hours, the transaction was spotted and erased from the transaction log after the bug was fixed and the network forked to an updated version of the bitcoin protocol. This was the only major security flaw found and exploited in bitcoin's history.


The highlighted portion is essentially what has happened. The difference is that bitcoin knew about it for over a week, while we didnt find out about it until the attack was under way. Also, I announced in realtime block 235300, which is the stopping of a chain.

If there is a bug in the future that allows to totally bypass the coin emission, then we will fix that to. You can count on that.

Who replaces the coins dumped on exchanges once the exchanges rollback the transactions?

@jl777, I have made my point, I know you would be stressed by this, so I send you my best wishes!

I also point out that listening to 20 'yes' men agreeing with you is often less valuable than someone who disagrees with you. This is a HUGE moment!

I hope it all works out for the best.

Yeah OK...   because Ethereum Classic is doing so well compared to Ethereum...   Roll Eyes



Ethereum Classic is better than Ethereum for crypto true believers, I don't think kmd classic is viable, but plenty will exit kmodo over this all the same

Why hardfork at block 235300 if hacker start attack befor?
For example Block #234899:

The highlighted portion is essentially what has happened. For those that dont understand that a coin's emission and supply are the MOST important things for people to trust, I am not sure what to say. A coin that is allowed to be created out of thin air would lose a lot more trust than stopping the chain at an announced block in realtime and then doing what you said you would do

this is not a rollback to bail out some exchange that got hacked.

the attacker has generated another 27 blocks in the last hour and at this pace he would generate much more than 10 million KMD by the 236000 block with the original bugfix trigger.

It is a bug that was not found by a white hat, but by someone who repeatedly exploits the same bug over and over.

I did not block the first exploit of the bug, that can be considered a bounty. But beyond that, it is like handing in the same thing over and over again expecting to be paid for it.

I never said the code is the law. The miner reward has been stated to be 3 KMD per block, not 100003 KMD. It is a chain stoppage due to a critical bug. People have relied on 3 KMD per block as mining reward, so to allow 100003 KMD as a reward would violate things a lot more than stopping the chain at 235300.

I will use common sense for this. Also, in the future if there is some other critical bug that dramatically changes what everyone's understanding is, then I will likely fix it and stop the chain, etc.

Some things are no brainers, but I will take some time to wrap my head around the concept of a "stoppable chain" that seems sufficiently unique to put Komodo far apart from other altcoins.
