http://blockchain.info/P2SH

for now, P2SH vs NOP2SH is 8 vs 11.

Let me ask :  Deepbit, [Tycho], will you support P2SH?

Any hints as to how to configure my P2Pool/cgminer to vote for this P2SH thing?

Thanks. I know it's just a test vote. I just want to help make this graph look a bit better http://blockchain.info/P2SH

I'm pretty sure you have to actually solve a block to have your vote counted. I'm not trying to dissuade you, far from it, I'm quite pleased there are people like you that are concerned about the future of the network!

Yeah, I know, but I would feel better having it running, even if I don't even have a Ghash to contribute Then again, I looked at Luke's github thing, and being a non-techie windows user, I think I'll have to abstain from voting. I don't know how to do any of that Sad

will this make the need for 6 confirmations everywhere nonexistent, or will 6 confirmations still be needed?

Won't change anything about confirmations, as the overall network is still secured only by hashing power. From what I gathered, it will just make it easier to require more than one key to send out your money. Think MtGox's ubikey, but for your own home wallet.

where will these other private keys come from?

From what I gathered, they come from your own wallet. Basically you now have a private key stored in your wallet that you use to sign and spend coins from your public key (your public key is your wallet address), and with this change you can set up a wallet address (public key) that will require two or more private key signatures for the transaction to execute, instead of one. Or something like that. This will be built into the Bitcoin protocol and you won't actually see it, but it will allow Bitcoin developers to write software that works like ubikey for your phone, escrow services that require third parties to control and release funds, and accounting software that requires multiple people to sign off on transactions for business security reasons.

No FUD needed. Eligius hashrate is the same as it has been. Blocks have variance as usual. Roll Eyes

p2pool is growing.
This is good, but p2pool can't really replace traditional pools yet. It's more of a substitute for solo mining (and puts it within reach of a few more miners).

And FWIW: Eligius supports P2SH via BIP 17, not the broken-by-design BIP 16. If you care about bitcoin, boycott anything supporting BIP 16 and merge BIP 17 yourself.
