< wumpus> heh that didn't go too well with the bitcoin foundation... anyhow off topic here
< meshcollider> danklasson: I don't think bitcoin core counts as a charity ;)
< danklasson> 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/
< MarcoFalke> meshcollider: Maybe this one https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/7510/files ?

< wumpus> then again, that would defeat its entire purpose for things like bitcoin and P2P programs, again requiring the users to manually change a setting

< sipa> very early versions of bitcoin used whatismyip.com, no joke :)
< wumpus> bitcoin wasn't the only affected program, but one of the worst, because it had the upnp structures on the stack
< gmaxwell> sipa: in fact it would be perfectly useful in bitcoin for batch validation if but for the ecda reduction of R.x mod P and the lack of R's sign.
< Provoostenator> Next time you go to a shop, they'll offer you a bitcoin payment option. Super convenient!
< wumpus> not sure if I ever made it public, but I could own every bitcoin node starting up in a LAN
< jonasschnelli> sipa: when I'm scanning the UTXO set with the CCoinsViewCursor (while, cursor.Next()) is there a way to calculate the progress? Similar to your https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/src/txdb.cpp#L387?
< achow101> gmaxwell: I think Provoostenator is talking about https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node#port-forwarding
< wumpus> any plans for bitcoin over udp? much easier to port fw there
< maaku> achow101: bitcoin doesn't do multi-generator arithmetic
< achow101> sipa: so what do we need to be able to use this in Bitcoin?
< sipa> it doesn't currently affect anything in bitcoin, but i thought about mentioning it here as it's under the bitcoin-core repo and all that
< sipa> in the past week we've finally merged multi-multiplication support in libsecp256k1: https://github.com/bitcoin-core/secp256k1/pull/486
< luke-jr> achow101: at least not unless there's an alternative that isn't Bitcoin/Core-specific
< BlueMatt> will this make bitcoin core the first open source project to do releases using the 1984-suggested toolchain system? =D

< wumpus> kabaum_: yes that is possible (might be better to ask in #bitcoin-wizards)
< wumpus> 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.
< JackH> 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?

< gmaxwell> well they design the rules, so ... well the really misleading part is to claim it is really related to bitcoin at all, it's just a massively premined dumb altcoin, where they happened to give a small portion to people who generated excess tx volume in the last week.
< Provoostenator> I'm sure it will stabilize at 0. I personally don't find it very productive to try and get media to report bitcoin related thing correctly.
< Provoostenator> Yes, which would include the bitcoin diamonds(?) person whose gitian signature was recently added to a PR.
< wumpus> the only solution is to call everyone bitcoin core developer that contributed one patch, or heck even a translation message

< wumpus> better to ask in #bitcoin, this is not a support but a development channel, read the topic please
< Randolf> Guest89357: For support, the #bitcoin channel is probably your best bet.
< Guest89357> I have a problem related to an old bitcoin core client
< Randolf> Guest89357: There are many active folks here, but the discussions are usually focused on the development of the various facets of the Bitcoin project.

< BlueMatt> Provoostenator: well my concern is ux for average users...if I'm sending to someone I know understands bitcoin, fine, no issue, if its some guy who's receiving a withdraw from an atm/their exchange, they may be very confused
< BlueMatt> no need to relay it in bitcoin p2p net?
< gmaxwell> adiabat: there is no catch, if bitcoin core ever does replacement fully I assume it'll presign with locktimes.
< jonasschnelli> Not sure if we want a key leading to the Bitcoin Platinum project in our repository,... could be missued for advertising?
< jonasschnelli> The key links to btcplt.org (Bitcoin Platinum)
< BlueMatt> worth reaching out to people who use bitcoin core's wallet in reasonable volume to ask what they'd want from such an interface
< Randolf> alcipir: My suggestion is to learn C++ first, and then learn about programming Bitcoin/blockchain. The reason is that both have learning curves that are probably better-studied separately.
< Provoostenator> Or you could stalk your friends with C++ skills and manipulate them into becoming interested in Bitcoin, quitting their current job and helping out :-)

< mryandao> maybe bitcoin-core should build in telemetry service and leave the generation of debug log for advanced users.

< binarycat> I have a Bitcoin Core wallet.dat which I've had forever. Today, I made a fresh wallet.dat, created a receive address and went back to the original wallet.dat and transferred almost all of the Bitcoins to the new one, for the sake of being able to safely "claim" Bitcoin Gold/Cash/whatever without risking that the software just steals my Bitcoin instead of giving me other coins (and also to put the new wallet.dat in offline storage....
