bob___: try #bitcoin channel, this one is not for support
having an issue with bitcoin core changing the transaction fee to a lower amount?
not really. at the moment there's a load of suboptimal ways of getting work updates from Bitcoin Core, adding a GBT endpoint means you don't need to poll or do any roundtrips to RPC.
is bitcoin core going ahead with segwit? there's been so much back and forth that im not sure anymore
DrBenway: i'm currently working on segwit wallet support in bitcoin core, reviewing many other changes, and longer term i'm working on a signature aggregation proposal and a few further out cryptographic constructions
So I managed to install QT Creator and I'm able to use to run bitcoin-qt and edit C++ files. However what I'm trying to do is edit one of the .ui files. Unfortunately the Design tab is greyed out, and I don't see these .ui files in the project.
promag: if you're losing ZMQ frames with a unix domain socket you've got other issues. there's sequence numbers in the messages that Bitcoin Core emits too, so you should be able to detect if you're getting messages lost.
heh that didn't go too well with the bitcoin foundation... anyhow off topic here
danklasson: I don't think bitcoin core counts as a charity ;)
I don't know if you guys know. But supposedly this guy set up this fund where you can apply for 1 million dollars donation. Would you guys say that could be used to hire a bunch of devs working on several projects related to Bitcoin, such as segwit supported wallets and LN. What's your thoughts regarding this? https://pineapplefund.org/
kabaum_: yes that is possible (might be better to ask in #bitcoin-wizards)
bitcoin core's wallet is not optimized for handling huge numbers of transactions, for example it keeps them all in memory, and doesn't at the moment have an utxo index. There has been work in that direction but any help is welcome.
is there a limitation to how many addresses Bitcoin Core can generate for a given wallet? We issue about 500 new addresses per day, some which are used, some which are not, but is there a limit per wallet?
