I almost spent some coins during a rescan without thinking. This obviously can cause problems, right? I had a spend that wasn't refound yet and it probably would have used some of the coins that were already spent. Should there be a warning now that rescan is automatic?

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

The transaction might include some coins that were spent and some that were not making it difficult to get to the unspent ones. Plus accidentally sending bad coins is pretty annoying to sender and receiver.

Maybe I put this in the wrong place. Move to dev and tech discusion?
