Re: Blocksize attack vector possible now?

Consensus on increasing the block size has now finally been reached. Although to address your point if the amount of transactions overfills the blocks and keeps continuing to do so for long enough. Then I'm led to believe that it could bring down the whole network. That is what the transaction fee i...

RBF transactions to be enabled at the next core update!!!

It's took us many many months to get the blocksize readjusted like it clearly needed. And now a core dev is pushing through RBF transactions at the next update. Which means zero confirmation transactions can never be accepted again. And that someone can send a transaction back to themselves before i...

Full nodes on Android OS and similar

I wonder when we are first going to see a full node bitcoin wallet to run on Android released. You can buy a 128GB memory card now for several quid. It may be best for the app designed to have an option to run only over WiFi. To save on mobile data costs. Plus the UTXO would have to run in virtual m...

Re: Bitcoin Mining Profit

I agree with some of the sentiments in this thread that cloud mining is basically nearly always a scam. In fact it's actually one of the most effective ways to run a Ponzi. Also why would anyone with that amount of mining capacity rent it out to the public on a relatively very small scale. When it'd...

Re: Anonymity by default?

I personally think it should pretty much stay as it is. Although I'm not against a future sidechain that can provide anonymity. Also I'm a big fan of wallets like DarkWallet. That offers both stealth addresses and the coinjoin protocol combined together in one application. If you want true anonymity...

Re: Best method for securing online private keys?

Well I meant specifically for services which are forced to temporarily hold funds, say between a buyer and a seller in an online marketplace..
The use of multisig - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Multisignature - with an independent third party escrow sounds like the best option for what your saying.

Re: What's the cheapest mining hardware with efficient hash rate/power

Unless you have basically free power then it can be very difficult to make any positive return on your investment bitcoin wise. Meaning you're probably a lot better off spending that $10,000 on BTC and sticking it on a paper wallet. If you can get power at less than $0.07 USD per kWh then you could ...
