BTC is under attack! ===> http://bitcointicker.co/networkstats/

 Shocked

by a difficulty increase and people making transactions?

Wait this looks normal to you? Going from 10k unconfirmed transactions to 65k in under 12hrs? Or you just trolling?
https://blockchain.info/charts/mempool-count?timespan=24h

No, I'm not trolling. Some simple math:

Say the network capacity is 15000 transactions per hour before the difficulty increase.  Now the difficulty jump reduces capacity by 17%. So now capacity is 2550 transactions per hour less. Now assuming transaction demand remains the same, in 12 hours you'll amass 30k transactions above capacity which go into the mempool.

So that alone explains more than half of the effect. No need to postulate a "spam attack". Any slight (10%) increase in demand at the same time would account for another 18k transactions making that 48k transactions, almost your measure 55k.


Wait even with you math, a sudden consistent spike of 10% in volume across the board right at the time of difficulty adjustment looks normal to you?
Now just a hypothetical, if you had limited resources and were to trying to spam the blockchain how exactly would you approach or perhaps time your attack?  Roll Eyes

===> *imho* >> India has been the 5000lb Gorillia driving the price up if you didn't already know! ;-)

where's the evidence for that? what indian volumes there are are pitiful and the price sky high. that points to not very many coins being bought.

try google trends---> bitcoin   (in India)    Cool

that's all positive but what matters when it comes to price is buying on exchanges. on btcxindia 'india's leading bitcoin exchange' there were five trades in the last two hours amounting to about 1.3 btc in total.

wowzers. but they could be total nobodies for all i know.

localbitcoins is more relevant but those figures are still only $400,000 or so a week. i'm sure india will be an ever bigger deal but not right now.

Japan's taking over as a volume leader. Today its top exchange (coincheck) has 7922 BTC volume, but coincheck isn't even on bitcoinity. The only working JPY exchanges on bitcoinity are the kraken and localbitcoins.

Bitcoinity still has an MtGox chart page up. Maybe they've kept it open in case Mark Karpeles starts MtGox up again.

Or it is Mark Karpeles who is originator and ringleader behind Bitcoinity. Do we have full info about people behind Bitcoinity?
They could keep keep MGox charts on because, whatever you can say, it is historic data.

Mt.Gox is History people,
and if you want to know (i think you already know)some news, https://www.reddit.com/r/mtgoxinsolvency/

here you can ask Mark if he is or not behind the website you wrote before.

The truth is that he had in past many domains i can't recall all of them.

The dev who controls bitcoinwisdom hasn't posted anywhere in over a year. It's probably running on automatic, If anything breaks there's probably nobody around to fix it. This quote's from the bitcoinwisdom announcement thread.


...I'm honestly starting to wonder if u/BitcoinWisdom has left the project behind to focus on other things, considering that there hasn't been any appearance in here (or on twitter) for about a year by now, while in the past, he was always fast to respond to questions/feature requests.

Japanese volume doesn't get mentioned so much, but it's the one that's been on the ascendant. Bitflyer FX has done nearly 50K today, although they are currently zero fee, so...

Coincheck charges fees so its volume is *probably* real. Coinmarketcap has put it at third place for volume today. It's put Bitflyer into the exchanges marked with a * because they don't charge fees.

I'm not ruling out a spam attack, what you say is correct.

I just don't like the going from "woah, there's 50k tx in the mempool" to "it must be a spam attack" when any 10% fluctuation in demand would explain it because this "jumping to conclusions" is really diverting the view from the actual problem we have here: namely that we might be sending real users away to altcoins/paypal/....

I don't want that happening, but I'm pretty sure it is.

Postulating a spam attack (because it doesn't look "normal") everytime we hit the usage ceiling negates the existence of this problem and effectively diverts energy from solving it. I offered a different view that explains what's happening as quite "normal" so we can focus on the problem at hand: not enough capacity.

That's funny cause actions like these cause the exact opposite reaction in me. Like every time there's blatant spam attack some BU supporter hilariously attempts to claim that it's normal organic growth. To a point where they lose all credibility and i find myself automatically starting to assume that it's shilling. Not that it can't be organic growth just because there's so much attempt at disinformation as if someone is trying too hard

so china's volume is now piddly, though of course it's very early there. does this mean we're now immune to 'china bans'? it's gonna be a very different market from now on no matter what happens.

now we'll just have to rely on more bitfinex hacks instead .

The sad state of the bitcoin community.

2 camps and no meaningful discussion can take place because both sides assume the other side to be somehow evil.

So what's the sentiment at the moment?  I am a bit confused what's been going on.

Are we all ok?

Mostly sideways for a while? I'm not feeling bullish or bearish.

wait a second. great conclusion. it means that PBOC crippled their ability to send the price down by forcing the the chinese exchanges to show their real volume.
