Some people huge risks, always.  Why did people buy WorldCom stock right before they
went under?  Why do people buy shit coins?  This community loves risk, so none of this
should come as a surprise, and I'm sure there are people who want nothing to do with the
fork and are just unloading what they've got.

Can't wait until tomorrow to see what happens.   I feel like a kid on Christmas eve!

Don't you still have some time left to do some transactions? If you're using a high enough fee to make sure that it gets confirmed in time.
I know Crypto-Games is still accepting deposits and withdraws until 18:00 UTC

Also, the chances of there being a split are pretty slim now.

I doubt if ALL Bitcoin users in the world know about the "changes" and "risks" that these transactions might cause. They are

too busy making money on trades, to worry about this. You also have some people who will trade until the last moment and

then move their coins into cold storage. They might think that the price might crash after the 1st of August and that they want

to capitalize on the high price we have now.  Roll Eyes

The risk of a split is still there even if the risk is very low, I think there is a chance some people are getting in and out of exchanges depending on their plans, those that want to get out, probably want to be as safe as possible, but those that want to get in probably want to take advantage of what is going to happen with bcc.

Even though many people suggesting them from many days don't do any transaction before and after 2 days. May be after Segwit those transactions will be confirmed may be. I don't know what these people are doing and to where they are sending because many exchanges have stopped the withdrawals and deposits but people are still transferring Bitcoins strange!

It is probably BTC-e laundering all of the stolen Bitcoins.

Seriously, they stole 66,000+ Bitcoins and they are "mixing" them up as we speak. Such a shame that people stoop so low. Why not just open your exchange and be happy making $20,000 a day? Why do they feel a need to take that which does not belong to them? Sad.

well, we can not give up life just because there is a possibility of a fork coming! there are still a lot to do with bitcoin and many are still continuing to do it.

also you need to understand the risks not just know some risk exists and fear it for no reason. read the NEWS link on top of bitcointalk for more information.
as a summary the risk was mostly due to BIP91 and BIP148 because they are designed to "reject" blocks that are not compatible with their setting and rejecting means possibility of a long orphaned block and that means a transaction that was confirmed with 3+ confirmation becomes unconfirmed and it is only risky if the sender double spends it. otherwise it will be confirmed in another block on the longest chain!

with that said the risk is nearly 0 now that SegWit (what both BIP91 and BIP148 wanted) is being activated in 100% of blocks. so there is no block to reject!

edit: just thought of another usage in time like this: wallet cleanup Cheesy
you spend all your small transaction outputs in your wallet with a very small fee and make a new big transaction. i call it dust cleanup.

Well probably, there should be some explanations on this why they are still doing transactions, probably they don't know or have no idea what fork is and still doing transactions until now or they made transactions to transfer their Bitcoin to safety but by doing it is to risky. I was also thinking transferring my BTC into a safer wallet earlier but I don't want do it because I don't wanna risk my BTC that I saved and earned for this couple of months. So I did not do any transactions, also some of the wallets can do express transactions so they might have done that so that the transaction will be done before the fork. I hope people do understand the risks and understand what will happen tomorrow. What we can do is watch and wait until it happens and good luck to those who made transactions that were not approved during the fork.

They are normal users just like us, only that they probably have no idea about what's going on or are still trying to move their coins out of exchanges.


Don't you still have some time left to do some transactions? If you're using a high enough fee to make sure that it gets confirmed in time.
I know Crypto-Games is still accepting deposits and withdraws until 18:00 UTC

There won't be a split, the problem is BCC.

It's funny how there are completely no transactions coming from Africa and South America. Are they that smart or maybe the number of bitcoin users there is so small. Probably the latter...

As for the transactions, some people don't read the news and don't use the forums. They are busy with other things, job, kids, you name it.
For example, a guy is at work every day, comes home and hears the news: Honey, fridge broke so I ordered a new one, get some cash ready, and my car needs to go to a mechanic too, it's gonna be at least $1000... So he thinks, I have some bitcoins, I'll send one to an exchange and have cash on my account in 2 days! Guess not Roll Eyes

That might be one of the possibilities or maybe they have lots of bitcoins to experiment and they want to see what happens to their bitcoins. Although most of the exchanges have stopped deposits and withdrawals and most of individuals also are avoiding bitcoin transactions yet the price of bitcoin is rising even now that's also something to take note of I guess so may be I'm wrong.

Maybe they were pending transactions with low fees and now that others are off chain they are left hanging in there until the right confirmation times .

Either risk takers or bitcoin users that either don't know about or don't fully understand the upcoming fork. Shoot I don't understand it completely myself but believe it or not there are users out there who follow news regarding BTC at the minimalist of levels.

Agree that some of these people might not be aware of the activities happening on the Bitcoin network and thus they are assuming that everything is normal. Even as of now there are 900+ transactions pending on the list but I think this is the effect of the latest update. However, as a safer side, we should not transact unless and until the green signal from the centre.

Russians, Americans, European, and Chinese are still making the majority of transactions and it could even be the exchanges moving BTC around in cold storage etc, off the exchanges so they can collect all the BCH to give to the customers. That's just one idea I guess and the other is people are clueless as to what is actually coming and what a fork is.  Grin

No one would knowingly dare to take such risks.I think not all the bitcoin users are aware of the hard fork possibility and that they should not do transactions to avoid losses.But,there might be still a small percentage of people who are more confident that hard fork would not occur and so just continue trades,transactions thinking that all the discussions about hard fork were just FUD and so better to ignore it.
