Now, we know we can easily use a small chroot to get native linux applications running on android(Such as the bitcoin client). So I can use the bitcoin client using a debian chroot no sweat.

Now if we have a minimal chroot with bitcoin without a gui but accepts json rpc, if we have all of the json methods we could make a native android client for the json server running in the small chroot in the background.

tl;dr We can run bitcoin, albeit dirty on android but we can make it much cleaner without making a native java client.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

nice hack.

I'd still like to see a free java android app though - that would result in an explosive uptake when everyone can get bitcoin in their pocket without jumping through configuration hoops.

If you liked my post, please send me a bitcoin!
