Is there a way to validate a random transaction via transaction ID on the debug window? Imagine I want to validate a transaction between 2 wallets I don't control. I believe its possible to check if such a transaction exists on the mempool "getmempoolentry" but can I also check the confirmations without having to decode a whole block like with "getrawtransaction"?
people can and do control the centralized dns - mostly core devs running their own services on their own domains for your convenience. Go ahead and start up bitcoind and you can see for yourself
Dean_Guss: please don't talk here if you're not going to tell the truth.
qpeng: this would be a better question for #bitcoin.
k. I will shut up
Dean Guss thx,
qpeng: the DNS seeds are only used in an untrusted manner for the first run; after that, the node keeps track of its own peers its seen
