woah what happened? some guys accidentally sent coin to you? maybe you could look into opening a support ticket with coinbase?

I guess it shows how little I know about the network. The coin isn't worth THAT much... just a strange is all.
It was mine.  Sorry about that.  Could you please just send it back?  Thanks.
Why is it you? Ha-ha Wink Wink

The odds of this happening are minute.

You would have more chance of getting struck by lightning, while at the same time as getting run over by a bus, then waking up in the hospital to find out you just won the lottery than having an address collision.  

So i guess you are the 'stupid bitcoiner' for not looking at the maths.

Who the fuck are you calling 'stupid'?  

The odds of this happening is not once per minute!  That is bullshit.  It is much more rare than that.  

How did you compute: 'struck by lightning' * 'bus' * 'hospital' * 'lottery'?  Did you look at the 'maths'.  Moron.  You british are always 'looking at the maths'.  


You are again showing everyone how stupid you really are....

Firstly, the word 'minute' in that context has a different meaning than obviously your simple brain can compute.

Secondly, I QUOTED YOU for calling people 'stupid bitcoiners' and you take offence??? If you can't take it, then don't give it... You twat.

Someone else back me up here on the MATHS...  


While some stupid bitcoiners think it can only happene once in a blue moon, it is actually not that infrequent

You're a fucktard rawdog.   Is this you???  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLLRCjGPz_I

I think it's him.

If an address collision happens, it'll be because of poor random number generation.  The probability of random addresses colliding is so ungodly small that it will never happen in the entire life of bitcoin.  The fact that you think it's possible is more demonstrative of the failing of the human mind than the design of bitcoin.  The sheer number of addresses is simply unimaginably large.
QFT. The sheer number of addresses is simply as unfathomably vast as the universe itself.

There are MANY MAGNITUDES more Bitcoin addresses than there are grains of sand on the Earth.

I'm pretty sure it's the sun.  I have taken the text from the image using ocr if it would help anyone who needs to translate it.....


Imagine you built a perfect computer; forget about GHash and Megahertz.

You built a computer which used the absolute minimum amount of energy theoretically possible to record a change in a single bit (1 to 0 or 0 to 1).

We are talking about the limits of thermodynamics; nothing more efficient is even possible.

Now imagine you used most of the natural resources in our star system to construct a dyson sphere and covered the entire surface of this sphere with a single star system sized super computer.

Now imagine you could keep this supercomputer cooled at roughly absolute zero and could do so without expending any additional energy.

If you had that and captured (with no inefficiency or loss) the entire energy output of our star (not just in a day or week but continually until it burned out) you couldn't COUNT to 2^256 before you ran out of energy.

Keep in mind this is simply counting.

Just counting, not hashing, not comparing, not performing lookups just counting 1 .. 2 .. 3 .. 2^256.

These numbers have nothing to do with the technology of the devices; they are the maximums that thermodynamics will allow.

And they strongly imply that brute-force attacks against 256-bit keys will be infeasible until computers are built from something other than matter
and occupy something other than space.

This particular transaction was to my coinbase wallet and only for .010, I guess it is mine now.
