earlz: you can watch the presentation from breaking bitcoin today, but essentially the fact that the pre-0.15 utxo set stored unspent outputs per transaction meant that a new tx could pull in an input that was 1 of many outputs in a previous transaction
bane5000: no need to run as root, forwarding 8333 is perfectly fine but you'll need to configure your external ip address (-externalip=IP on cmdline, or externalip=IP in bitcoin.conf)
Hey guys, was thinking about running a bitcoin core p2p only headless server on debian. Just had a couple of questions regarding the online documentation... first of all, do you recommend running this as root? Would it be wiser to run the daemon as a separate user/group?
jonasschnelli: Yes. That SF bitcoin meetup is perfect. That's neat that peter todd stuffed a blockchain hash into his signature in a certificate notation. I wonder if I'm the only one that's actually checked that. :-)
