You got some "dust" happens all the time
It is a method of cheap advertising.
But can be pretty annoying since the tx has super low priority, might never confirm.  

Cryptography is one of the few things you can truly trust.

Yes, I'm afraid you've been hacked. The next time you log into your wallet your funds will all be taken.



Seriously though, No. They're just spam advertising payments. Nothing to worry about.

The sender is "BtcSmart - Multiply your money". Spamming through blockchain. Bad way to promote their business.

I wonder if that is what happened to me? I sync with the network using an old empty wallet. Two days ago I noticed my "empty" wallet had 1 Satoshi in it. I thought I had just forgotten it was there, but now I wonder if it was a transfer? I'll have to check tonight.

Apparently what these fuckwits are doing is watching all the bitcoin transactions as they stream out over the blockchain, picking up the (working) addresses and then sending their stupid spam to 'em in 0.000000001 transactions.

It's supremely annoying to me just 'cuz in my main wallets I try to keep WHOLE bitcoins in balance, only moving money into a "working" wallet for sending and receiving lesser amounts.  This helps me keep track of actual balances in my head, so I'll notice if something's amiss right away.

But now that's all cluttered up with this fucking SPAM DUST, and sometimes these transactions don't confirm so the single satoshi eventually disappears BUT sometimes apparently the transaction DOES confirm, so then that satoshi is permanent.

I dunno what a solution to this might be, but seems to me that bitcoin itself needs to have some feature for the receiver of money to actively REFUSE it, sometimes, if he doesn't want it!!

The way it is right now, anyone can "force their will" on you, pushing info (yes, even if it is "money") into your wallet, and you can't do a damn thing about it??

That kind of sucks  Angry

But I'm not sure how to go about suggesting new features for bitcoin: anyone know?

Also what do y'all think might be the possible implications of a feature like this, i.e. to actively REFUSE to receive a transaction?

Any apparent downside, like could there be some way that this might possibly be mis-used by bad guys to steal money out of people's wallets???

Ideas???

Question should be; how did they get your address?

This is a real pain in the ass since I'm OCD about keeping whole-BTC wallet balances.

How can this be an effective advertising strategy. Even if I needed their services, I sure as hell wouldn't use them now.

No one is trying to hack you, just like everyone has said already: It is advertising, search for Laxotrade they also have been spamming people with Dust for free advertisements. "Recently"

The TX id contain a certain sequence of number which will sync with your brain wave pattern.
In your sleep will this sequence be played as "BtcSmart", and when you wake then will you have an urge to use their services, and you don't even know why.

wait and see, this spam you are cursing now could very well be the minimal transaction in the not so distant future. You could be getting spammed to the riches.

I got the spam 0.0001 BTC from one of the ponzi service recently, much better than the one satoshi I got as well the other day. It is just advertisement spam, at least I used the 0.0001 for a fee already.

This should be taken care of, allowing text in bitcoin transaction was a bad idea, now we have such spam
