News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

The Bitcoin 100 charity thing received 184.2 bitcoin a few days ago, with no announcement, donaton claim, or any notice. Just for the hell of it, with no strings attached. That is some SERIOUS DOUGH to throw around, especially without letting us know how much of it to spend per charity, for what kinds of charities, etc. Could someone with more technical skills than mine check where the heck these coins came from? I just want to make sure they're not Bitcoinica's "misplaced" funds. And if you are the one who did the donating, at least let us know, even through an anonymous account, what you want us to do with it.

Thanks!

Confirmed, these are non-Bitcoinica (and non-other-Linode) coins.

It's an easy linear chain to follow.  The previous output (a single coin) was here:  
https://blockexplorer.com/tx/6c1a56180de4d99f0a6bea59c3361fe186403271de459fcf1f6f1405e495aabc#o0

And its previous output was here:

And that takes us back to 2012-02-26, before the hack.

Thanks, Rassah, for posting this, and thanks, Revalin, for the insight. I now request to have this dialog removed from the internet so that half of those donated coins can go to the Maglev and the other half for purchasing old smelly rotten reclaimed barn wood.

Thanks!

The IP is traced to Comcast in Jackson, MS. That being the case, we can safely assume that the GDP of Mississippi was greatly reduced due to that generous donation to Bitcoin 100.
