But it looks like blockchain.info has a failure mode where it looses connection to some backend, and data does not update.

Apologies, yes one server lost it's database connection. If it problem ever occurs again it should auto-reconnect now.

This would make most sense for you as this would be an incentive to open an account on blockchain.info. Up/Down-voting could be done by "donation" addresses which again would be good for you.
As long as you show the amount of donations as justification to rate something high, you should not be blamed for misrepresenting stuff and upon clear abuse you could close accounts or users and mark the tag as coming from a closed account. Showing tags from closed accounts last, only optionally or not at all would also be very clear to the user.r liability.

For now a tag submission page is available at http://blockchain.info/tags. Also for a bit of geeky fun I indexed the addresses contained in signatures from bitcointalk.org example: http://blockchain.info/address/1H4sGgNSRvRuiUsbucsQBNFWhZcLnL2KW1

It doesn't include up or down voting as the tags in this context probably serve a slightly different purpose than your original idea giszmo. Which was to allow people to tag addresses as belonging to scammers, add comments etc? While I could see this being useful in some situations it has the danger of morphing into a blacklist which in my opinion is a bad idea all round.

You should only trust tags fetched via https, otherwise a man-in-the-middle could hijack the .json file and replace the address and signature.
(and I think you'd want "tags" to be an Array of Objects...)

Yep, your right on both counts. Extending this feed idea a bit further, what if it wasn't just for individuals websites but could the feeds could serve as a public directory of users as well. Basically a map of label@domain.org.

For example wallet services could all have a "Make address public" option which would then publish an address and label to the wallet services bitcoin_tags.json feed. Other wallet services can then index the feed of each service to build a public address book.

e.g. If I published the label "piuk" in the blockchain feed. Instawallet could then index the feed and resolve "piuk@blockchain.info" to the correct address. Bitcoin-Qt could publish to a @bitcoinfoundation.org feed, Electrum to @ecdsa.org etc.

RE: adding data to the blockchain: Did you see Stefan Thomas' nifty idea for using ECC math to tie a hash to a transaction without any blockchain bloat?

It's a nice trick, but is missing the most desired property that embedding data in the blockchain has, in that data is guaranteed to be permanently stored for as long as the bitcoin network is running.

There is a problem with the mixer: it does not pay a fee for the outgoing transaction, so often it takes ages to confirm.  I have been waiting four hours so far  Sad

This should be patched this now, the mixer will be much more likely to pay a fee from now on.

Well, if the blacklist doesn't come simply because nobody does it, I'm sure, somebody will do it some day.
Only if there is something some people might use as a black list, awareness rises and proposals to have clients launder by default will have a chance to get implemented for whatever reason.

I would like to suggest a feature to create a donation list.

1- Add on wallet home tab a button: (Create a Donation List)
2- When the user click on the button, will open a window to add some informations like:
2.1- Option to add bitcoin addresses that you will donate.
2.2- Frequency of donation. Monthly, weekly, annually...
2.3- Percentage that each address of the list will receive. Or if all addresses will receive evenly.
2.4- Maximum of Btc or Btc Fiat price that all addresses on the list will receive on the frequency stated on 2.2.
3- Will be interesting index all users donation list in one public list and show many informations like: addresses that have more people donating, addresses that received more donations,....

What do you think?

The API page mentions the "Unspent outpus" API method, but the implementation differs from the online documentation.

Quote
Unspent outputs   
http://blockchain.info/unspent/?address=$hash_160&address=$hash_160
Multiple Addresses Allowed

 - http://blockchain.info/api/blockchain_api

But it appears it is only responding properly when using $bitcoin_address not $hash_160,

Also, the example shows a trailing slash in the URL path.  There should be no trailing slash.  e.g.,   /unspent?address=   instead of  /unspent/?address=

You Can. Here is a real life use case:

The users "mralbi" has had 600 BTC stolen by a Trojan on his/her PC (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=126024.0). The address the funds were sent to is http://blockchain.info/address/1Q3KFL7Z1BTpUboDaU6Qj3t9xCXWpzNntS. On the Taint analysis you can see there are two addresses tagged: "nyana" and Mt.Gox" http://blockchain.info/taint/1Q3KFL7Z1BTpUboDaU6Qj3t9xCXWpzNntS. Theoretically the owners of these tags could be contacted and offered a bounty to provide any information they can on the address 1Q3KFL7Z1BTpUboDaU6Qj3t9xCXWpzNntS. Perhaps they have sent a transaction to that address before. This is just the beginnings of what might be possible in future but does stress the importance of keeping addresses isolated from one another if anonymity is desired.

1- Add on wallet home tab a button: (Create a Donation List)
2- When the user click on the button, will open a window to add some informations like:

3- Will be interesting index all users donation list in one public list and show many informations like: addresses that have more people donating, addresses that received more donations,....

What do you think?

If I understand correctly, recurring payments for donations? Recurring payments are problematic because we cannot send transactions on the users behalf. However it would certainly be possible to show a reminder when the user next logs in. I have added it to the ideas list, thanks.

The API page mentions the "Unspent outpus" API method, but the implementation differs from the online documentation.

Thanks, I've updated the documentation now.

I logged on wallet today and see something strange:

I clicked on btc balance to switch to USD currency. The popup window with information: This show the balance....  (is very big) and I only can hide the popup if I click again on the balance. I think the popup should hide if I click in any place of the page.

I'm on a Blackberry Tablet.

Oh, well hidden. Now I see it. Searching for "(" helps finding them. Can I haz filter for tagged addresses? Pleeez Smiley

You might want to change the layout for the tag thingy though. Now this looks like porn advertisement (which it is but you are not earning from showing it which it looks like).

Problems yet?

My wallet isn't showing any funds or any transactions.  It looks like a new, empty wallet.


Oh, still shows "disconnected".

[Update: Ok, that was user error.

The wallet shows 0 balance because I had "archived" the couple of addresses that still had funds in them.

Feature request: Would it be possible for me to remove the filter in My Transactions which only shows transactions for addresses that I haven't archived?  The pull-down says "All" but that apparently means "All that aren't archived".]

I can't reproduce this. The popup summary is shown in a frame so you may have to wait for it to load the new transaction.

You might want to change the layout for the tag thingy though. Now this looks like porn advertisement (which it is but you are not earning from showing it which it looks like).

Maybe a disclaimer is needed, I don't mind it being liberal what text is shown though.

Sure, this can be added. The select box would probably be better as Active (Default), All, Sent, Received Escrow.

Yes, it is not obvious at all that it is a tag associated with the address, it looks like it is just an ad being run by your site.  Perhaps you should add a label saying something like "owner-supplied address tag".  I am sure you can find a better wording Smiley

hmm … actually it is not owner-supplied neither. I could put the 1dice… address in my sockpuppet Hitler's signature and blockchain might associate this common address with Hitler. Although there might be some moderation to prevent this, the current tagging is far from what we discussed above. As far as I'm concerned, it's ok as is.

I'll revisit the idea of indexing tags after the android app is done (which is top priority now). There are other datasources which could be indexed, such as google results, other forums etc - but I agree, a better way is needed to display them.
