I think there are 3 different MTPs (median time past) in Bitcoin (though this may be incorrect). David Harding said on IRC that there was a MTP in Bitcoin v0.1 (Satoshi’s first release). There is also MTP as used in BIP 9 and then there is MTP as defined in BIP 113.
If indeed there are 3 different MTPs in Bitcoin, why? What was the motivation?
If fiat bank money is stolen, or bank is fire/damaged, we have banking insurance. If hard money gold is stolen, it can always be replenished with Lloyds of London insurance, or with a mining annual growth rate of 2% per year.
If Bitcoin money is hacked (as it was in past), USB Drive destroyed, or the bitcoin is missing, how can a person recoup their losses?
Some of us agree, slight inflation 1-2% helps insure against losses (just like FDIC insurance, or gold insurance). Of course large inflation, where governments finance war, pointless government programs with inflation of 20-30% year is too much.
The question is, How will Bitcoin solve the insurance issue? Can be it a good storage of value to families if its lost?
Note: I’m aware fiat or gold insurance, will not work if 3rd party insurance is lacking funds. It can work however, last time, someone stole money from friend’s bank account. Does bitcoin offer any level of insurance?
BitClout Blockchain Explorer: Paired with Bitcoin
I’m gathering a list of Bitcoin /Blockchain APIs/Web (REST) APIs that allow you to do basic blockchain queries through http(s) API calls, such as: getting the balance on an address, getting a list of transactions from or to an address, getting the details (i/o) etc. Where can I find more data? Github?
Been grinding the internet for months now and cant seem to find any worthy site to earn enough bitcoin without investment. Most sites offers fraction of a cent as rewards for task completed and its hopeless in the end
Hope you guys can help out with some sites that would help me make $50 or more within a week without investment
Hi, I’ve been doing this a while on passive mode but decided to commit a little harder for 2021. It’s not easy to do it without investment and it will take a while for you to take off, and a lot of work.
I invested $1K back in 2018 in crypto but this has little impact on my current results most of what I have / earn is due to the hard work I’ve put in.
I share my weekly results both in here (Beermoney journey forum) and on my personal website https://my-free-bitcoin.webnode.pt/startearning/ under on “my journey” (I’m updating both today). I made $102 this week… and I intend to earn at least $250 by the end of this year.
It’s not easy money, if you really want to make a decent amount from this websites you have no strategise. I also have some tutorials on how make the most out of your free earnings and generate passive income. But most importantly: You have to get some referrals to boost your earnings, there’s only so much you can accomplish on your own time.
Use your free earnings to generate more earnings by investing them wisely!
Take a look at my website, hopefully you’ll find something that works for you.
PS: Hive is a great blockchain to write posts and get rewards but you have to engage with people and be active if you wanna succeed there.
As a result of mining, miners receive income from two sources
The miner includes as the first transaction in the block (the “coinbase” transaction) a transaction with no inputs and with outputs to one or more addresses of their choice with a total amount which is less than or equal to the sum of other included transactions fees and the current mining reward .
the definition of a block in the blockchain is
“A block records some or all of the most recent Bitcoin transactions that have not yet entered any prior blocks. Thus, a block is like a page of a ledger or record book. Each time a block is ‘completed’, it gives way to the next block in the blockchain.”
this is acceptable miners get a reward for proof of work(confirm transactions)
but what exactly do miners when say they have a process for creating a block(and get a reward for them)?
(In other words what exactly this process? Is it possible to remove it?)
Bitcoin to USD exchange rate has been historically very volatile, but the recent (e.g. past 12 months) largest daily movements of ~$5k after Elon Musk tweeted about Telsa buying bitcoin, and ~$3k after Coinbase’s IPO. But a ~$10k fall is larger in magnitude than both of those major events combined.
Did any specific event(s) trigger this fall (and if so, what were they), or was it simply market volatility?
I’m looking for anyone (trusted) that accept Webmoney WMZ in exchange for Bitcoin or any other method of payment. I have tried finding a exchanger in BestChange but all is manual with minimum $70. I got a smaller amount…
