Hi B-Boys and B-Girls out there,

Does somebody know what this is (For the dim ones, I mean the continued chain of transactions in the ~3000 BTC range)?
It has been around for at least 2 days now and is always descending due to transaction fees. It just suprises me that it appears in such unregular intervals, that makes it different from any spending bots Ive seen in the past. Also, what would be a possible reason for such behaviour, other than a mining stimulus package?

Keep it up,
Spekulatius

Hmmm. Looking at block 144218, particularly the just-under-3000btc transactions....

Didn't know it was possible to spend unconfirmed coins like that. This does look a little odd.

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.

Used to be able to do it in regular client. There is no requirement for confirms on an input. In fact your client will use your change with no confirms. I guess in the event of unconfirming tx the devs did not want them propagated.
