The Bitcoin client is open source, so shouldn't there be a way to edit the # of Bitcoins you have? I have a plan to make millions doing this.

I want to implement a "Give Me 100 Bitcoins" button, because the difficulty of mining have been getting really high lately and I just wanted to make some quick cash.

I want to implement a "Give Me 100 Bitcoins" button, because the difficulty of mining have been getting really high lately and I just wanted to make some quick cash.

You could make it so you click a button that generates two hashes that are 0xABCDEF0123456xxxxx where the X's can be any number. Then in the client you say "If hash is in that range, then the proof of work is good" or something. So it mines two blocks at the same time. There, done. Submit a pull request and you are all set.

Since it is open source, you can literally make the client any way you want, and nobody can stop you. Other people would like to have free Bitcoins too so this would be a very popular feature.

There is another way, nay, an even BETTER way to alter the number if bitcoins that you have; Just send all your lonely ones to the address listed below. I promise that they will be well taken care of AND you will have succeeded in altering your bitcoin number  Wink

How about a 'reserved-block' feature? Everytime someone solves a block, the reward goes to the user! It would be much more user friendly as the user won't even have to press a button!

That's even easier to implement... just say if (block number % 100 == 0) {sendblock_FAST(reserved_addr);} . This way you get every 100 blocks!! By the way, "%" stands for "MODULUS" which is short for "DIVISION" with a remainder. These are mathematical concepts anyways, kinda difficult.

Also it needs no UI and can be hidden. If some people don't like it, they can have a few reserved addresses. Gavin can have 3 because he wrote more code so he probably deserves more blocks.

I think we should have a version for trolls, that way, they'll be satisfied looking at 'division by zero' errors.

Just use notepad or vi to edit your wallet.dat . Add a few zeroes in the right place... Simple really. That's what I do when I need more bitcoins.

You can put your wallet.dat file on a CD then photocopy it on a laser printer.  BUT, you must make sure sure you don't loose the wallet on the original CD so put it in the microwave first for ~60 seconds to bake it in real good before you copy it.
