So... Was browsing randomly some addresses and come across this.
https://blockchain.info/address/1NZUP3JAc9JkmbvmoTv7nVgZGtyJjirKV1

What do you think?
If something like this is really doable in some way it could generate bitcoins?

Maybe is it people double spending ? Haven't seen a transaction look like that one. Maybe some other iluminated can help you. I can't even understand why there's only 1 address ?!

Illuminati confirmed.

The negative balance is because of double spend.

Likely to be txn fees which could be charged later by some wallets. Localbitcoin used to do it earlier.

No. Bitcoin balances can't be negative. It's a GUI bug on blockchain.info, one of many bugs, just like it's possible to show transactions there that will never confirm. I don't trust their block explorer for anything unconfirmed.

Interesting, can someone still 'spend' unconfirmed transaction while receiving it from another user\?

Yes, you can.
Not all wallets allow this though.

And the child transaction will not confirm unless the parent transaction gets confirmed.

Seems like a bug on blockchain.info , other explorers don't show this, anyway transaction can't be in negative state.

If something like this is really doable in some way it could generate bitcoins?
No. Bitcoin balances can't be negative. It's a GUI bug on blockchain.info, one of many bugs, just like it's possible to show transactions there that will never confirm. I don't trust their block explorer for anything unconfirmed.

Would you mind suggesting an other blockexplorer please?
