here is a little tidbit as to why full nodes might be failing during this stress test.  it makes sense:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3bmb5r/stress_test_in_full_effect/csnr4fi

We should have had more than one implementation/developer set/user group. Even a simple fork like XT could do, they could compete on timely bugfixing and other trivial usage related qualities.

If so, an incident could rebalance the weight of those implementation organically. It is like in darwinian evolution, a catastophy like a flood or a fire can instantly change the volume of genes of certain types, leaving the losing genes lurking, ready to take over if a new and different event takes place. They represent the antifragility. I like to compare the laisses fleur economy to nature.

rock and cypherdoc please publish your list of services with zero confirmation transaction you provide.
I'm getting mad ...... I WANT TO BUY !!!

actually, back in the day, i used to do it all_the_time with my newsletter.  never a problem.

I'm not interesting to buy your babbling  for 2 btc/month. I believe you had no problem if you received 2 btc. And I believe you had no problem if you received nothing.  -> I'll not get reach if I'll spend hours receiving your newsletter for free.

you are one of those devs who actually helped me realize that most of what some of you guys say is complete bullshit, aka fabricated armchair logic.

when i realized this, it was liberating.

actually, i have one last question.  if I simultaneous spending tx's how can I get rich by reading your newsletter for free?

Not sure you could, you need a little understanding in economics to do that, but you could be rich double spending on all those payment service providers who use 0 confirmations.

i used to think, surely this dev must be running optimized simulations in the background that gives him some verified data to make these assertions, right?  or, at the very least, he's gone thru this situation before and has a foundation of knowledge in this area.  i would go quiet contemplating deeply what he had to say.

eventually, i realized no, it's complete bullshit.  he's just going thru a logic process winging it that i am more than capable of doing as well.

I do not know what devs do. (a lot of them are "running optimized simulations in the background that gives him some verified data to make these assertions"). And maybe a lot of them "gone thru this situation before and has a foundation of knowledge in this area".

What about you "Is it complete bullshit?"

BitPay is not "accepted zero confirm transaction since 2013" until you are a US citizen and they know who is your grandma. -> So they know who you are and they know  how to apply law.

I just added credit to a NameCheap account using BitPay.  The credit arrived, and I was able to use it to buy hosting, before the transaction confirmed.  I also recently bought a Starbucks card using Gyft/BitPay and was able to use the card before the transaction confirmed.  

EDIT: And I'm not from the US nor registered with BitPay (does BitPay ever know who the buyer is?).

My pizza place uses BitPay, they accept blind pay-to address transactions with no registration or anything as zero confirm transactions, usually clears in 2-3 seconds, has since 2013. There is zero recourse for BitPay if I successfully cheat, but the network prevents that so BitPay works.

Odalv, you are so absolutely wrong here

Zero-conf transactions did make some sense for worthless things like your newsletter, but those days are behind us after half a decade or working on trying to fill 1MB blocks so a market could develop.

I think there is a lot beyond bugfixing and trivial usage qualities they could compete on. There are real optimizations that could be done with pruning and other enhancements. Today these are being ignored for RBF changes and focus on LN and SC development. A set of devs working on an alternative core implementation that dedicate their time to improving the user experience, would develop a better implementation that attracts people over time.

I was making the augment that BTC might be a good long term bet and doing so free of charge from $5-ish down to $2-ish as you might recall (though I shut my mouth at the bottom because I don't want to be a perma-pumper who loses people money.  Especially those who cannot afford it.)


guess if i was telling my subs to buy or sell?

I don't know what you told your subs, and never cared much.  You seem to have told everyone else to buy with both hands all the while the price was going from $1100 -> $200 or whatever.  I made it a point (and still do) to not sell under $600 and got some up in the 4-figure range.  If you were telling your subs to do as I did, great.  Maybe you were telling them buy Hashfast or whatever?  I was totally outside the loop on that one and to this day I don't even know what that is/was or that you were pumping it (if indeed you were.)  Whatever it was it doesn't sound like it worked out all that great.

...since 9/11 was clearly not a attributable to handful of Muslims hiding out in caves half way around the world...

Seriously? Conspiracy theories are fun and all, but most require there to exist a level of perfection in coordination, execution, and secrecy in large organizations, or spanning far more individuals, than is rational to consider a real possibility.

No they don't.  That's why most of these false flags are about as clear as the nose on one's face when someone takes the time to look into them.  Thankfully we have an alternate media and interested individuals in society who, for whatever their set of reasons, will do just that.  We'll see how much longer that lasts now that the FCC has regulatory authority over the internet.  I'm guessing that they'll hold up about as well as Bitcoin when people attempt to use it in it's original P2P form.

Question: has anyone done a single interview with any of the workmen seen working in the elevator shafts of the twin towers in the weeks leading up to 9/11? Not that it would disprove the claims of truthers, but its non-existence is stark.

Before someone can conclude the impossible, I think they should at least refute those reports and/or produce an interview with one of those workmen.

I suppose Melbustus thinks the CIA doesn't have more than 1 or 2 agents sworn to lifetime secrecy under the threat of assassination should they violate the (perhaps unwritten) terms of their servitude. Just because we have a few cases of those who claim be ex-agents coming forward (not necessarily on the 9/11 issue), does not preclude the existence of different levels of secrecy clearances and ramifications for violating them.

I mean seriously grown men. We have a DEEP STATE with $trillions of funding taken from the unaccounted for DoD budget (per the former DoD secretary Donald Rumsfeld on the eve of 9/11 on national TV and other sources hence), and they can't secure the lifetime services a few good men  Huh

I wonder what sense of reality sheep like Melbustus and iCebreaker live in  Huh

it was free of charge from me at the time, too.  altho i don't remember you saying much of anything.

absolutely.  look here.  guys reporting their bitcoind shut down from memory overload.  that sucks:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3bmb5r/stress_test_in_full_effect/csniofb

A design which forces every consensus making node to approve every transaction is stoopid. Any half brained engineer could realize this if they spent some time thinking about the issues.

I've never really been one to tell people what to do, but I was still doubling down at the late 2011 bottom and was prepared to do so one more time.  I was liberal with in describing my activities and rationals.

. In fact by not clearing transactions in blocks and causing the memory pool to increase beyond what it should, the 1MB limit is probably more stressful on nodes than simply letting larger blocks get processed....

This is a very valid point not many have talked about yet. I'd like to see what the 'nodemongers' have to say about this?

If you are referring to the set of transactions kept around waiting to put them in a block, full nodes could set a hard memory limit and flush those with the lowest transaction fee per kb forcing them to be resent to the network periodically.

I think replace by fee is good. It is a way to unstick a transaction that is stuck with too low fee, when you are in a hurry.  It does not change the protocol in any way, it is just the miner chooses the transaction with the higher fee, making the old one illegal. It does not fill up blocks, only the network.

Zero-confirmations don't work in a system that can't guarantee the mempool ends up in a block. Thus either Bitcoin has unlimited spam or it doesn't have zero-confirmations.

Yet another in a long list of reasons that PoW cryptocurrency is broken and can't be fixed without a radical redesign.

What is that again iCebreaker about my sanity?

I remember one interview with an IT guy.  On 9/11 he was taking a comp day.  A weekend or two before the power had been mysteriously cut to his server room in one of the twin towers and he had spent some of his time bringing the machines back on-line.

He said that in the preceding weeks there was a noticeable amount of dust on the vents bringing air into the building.  I think it was he but am not sure who said that several weeks earlier the explosive sniffing dogs were removed from the lobby and also that on one of the vacant floors which he was near there was rumbling noises like large carts being moved around.  He imagined those things that construction debris are put in.

As with most such interviews I took the time to dig up, the person seemed to be quite credible.  Almost without exception these people who relate information or do work on the story claim that they only came forward because they don't wish to live in a society where the government makes policy based on false flag events and they hope their information will open people's eyes and change the course of our society for the better.  I can relate to this because if I were in such a situation that would be a motivating factor for me.  Conversely, I can really see no reason to invent or lie about such things.  Certainly nobody wins any popularity contests by being 'conspiracy theorists.'

but also way more expensive for Bitcoin's growth prospects as new users get turned away or fed up.  Cripplecoin, in the long run, fails to the benefit of Blockstreams SC project.

you keep ignoring the fact that miners can filter spam; if they want.

Miners can't filter spam without also filtering valid transactions, because they are indistinguishable.

Users will not get turned away, because where there is a demand, innovators will spring to life to supply it—a.k.a. a free market—your jealously of innovators notwithstanding.
