jonasschnelli: I would have been ok with relative paths if they meant 'relative to datadir' as other relative paths in our options, but relative to current directory isn't really acceptable, that's simply a recipe for confusion, especially if provided in bitcoin.conf
Pritty_Kitty, this isn't a question for Bitcoin Core development though. maybe #bitcoin-dev
No no i am a developer asking technical questions about bitcoin. I have built php code to deserialize transactions and build a merkle tree. Now i am working on the witness tree.
Pritty_Kitty: You seem to be asking a "how to use Bitcoin" type of question. You'll likely find that such questions are better suited for the #bitcoin channel as this one you're asking in now is specifically focused on Bitcoin core software development.
#bitcoin may be a better place
UnderDog_: I think you might be in the wrong channel, maybe try #bitcoin for general discussion on it, this channel is just for bitcoin core development
luke-jr: It wouldn't only be miners. I really don't understand the thinking behind why everyone needs to run a node for Bitcoin to be secure. It seems like a diminishing returns situation. If 1 out 100 people in the work run a node, I just can't really envision what would could wrong that would be made better by 99 out of 100 running nodes
luke-jr: AFAIK there is no common term for "someone attempted to 'pay me' by digging a hole in by back yard and leaving an envelope of money in it"... because outside of bitcoin no one is that @#$@# stupid. :)
For example, a wallet could plausably not scan for any change outputs because it knows all that it creates. If I go find one of your prior change addresses and pay it there is no reason to think the wallet would ever see it. ... and in existing software (e.g. bitcoin core) the payment wouldn't show up even if it did see the funds.
