I wonder if the recent Core bug will move the market. It might be the worst bug since 2010, though luckily it wasn't actually exploited and is unlikely to cause future trouble.


Link or it didn't happen...   hahahahahaa   Cheesy


Edit:  

O.k.   now I see the link, at the top of every forum page (and here for the sake of convenience),  and yeah sounds like a pretty serious possible exploit that had not been known to be exploited and to make sure all transactions have 200 confirmations in the next week or so in case there is a chainsplit before a sufficient amount of hashpower is upgraded and until the situation is resolved - which they are also saying that most of the mining hashpower has already upgraded to the fix away from the bug... I am NOT technical enough to understand some of this but it sounds serious.. and funny to have something so major to just be found...  Whoaza!!!

Yeah. What cracks me up is how all y'all jumped down the throats of BCH developers for having a core dev discover a bug in a single (of several) Bitcoin Cash implementation, which was also never exploited.

Shoe's on the other foot now. #justsayin

Did a BCH developer discover the bug and confidentially alert the Core team?

What are you talking about?  Apparently this is a several years long issue that has ramifications on any forks of bitcoin too.  So, it remains a bit unclear about your supposed "gotcha."  

Furthermore, your attempt to suggest that bcash developers are anywhere close to the same league as the broader bitcoin developer community remains lost upon me, especially when you make your lame assertion in this bitcoin thread, in which a large majority of us consider your stupid-ass support for bcash to be supporting not only a shit project, but also an ongoing attack vector on bitcoin.  

So, I don't know where you get off in some high and mighty righteous in any kind of found bug conversation.

If you don't wanna go through all that text, here's the short summary for you: VanEck SolidX ETF decision postponed

No problem, ETF's will be approved eventually.

Bakkt will be bigger they will launched it in November.

Interested to see if this will affect BCash, however.

If bCash was an real operating system.

I would not be so sure about that, bureaucrats and politicians can kick that can down the road for years, IMHO. All they

have to do is stall and point to dodgy exchanges to accomplish this. As far as lobbying goes crypto is peanuts for $$$ compared

to other big money moving towards the powers that be. Thus, no bureaucrat ever got in trouble for being slow on controversial

decisions in any way or in any history I've ever heard of!

So Bitcoin Core has a devastating bug in the code since March 2017 Shocked Huh Also, it appears that every single shitcoin that forked off of Bitcoin core 14.0-16.3 is also going to have to patch things up. We really dodged a bullet here. Hope no other surprises are lurking in the code.  Roll Eyes

Seriously considering running a Bitcoin Knots node or similar for resilience.  A wake up call for many.

It’s still a few days early for an end of year rally.  Normally doesn’t kick off until start October.

This bug was not only a DoS bug, it was a critical inflation vulnerability:

Knots actually focuses on being less stable / more experimental than Core. Maybe a more stable software fork is needed.

Yeah, Hairy, stay away from Knots.

That's LukeJr's project.

The fellow is not playing with a full deck of cards, if you catch my drift.
