pruning – Can Confidential Transaction in Liquid Network Blockchain be pruned

From a bitcoin full node, we can prune the blockchain from 350GB to 7GB (as of 30thJune2021) by storing the latest UTXO set plus maybe 120 latest block (for possible orphaning or block reorganization).
Can pruning be done for blockchain that involves confidential transactions (Liquid network) since there are range-proof and pedersen commitment?

bitcoincore development – Can someone explains me about Liquid Network

You need to run elementsd with below elements.conf:

chain=elementsregtest

rpcport = 18884
rpcuser = user1
rpcpassword = password1

Use the example mentioned in Elements code tutorial:

const request = require('request');

let username = "user1";
let password = "password1";

let options = {
    url: "http://localhost:18884",
    method: "post",
    headers:
    { 
     "content-type": "text/plain"
    },
    auth: {
        user: username,
        pass: password
    },
    body: JSON.stringify( {"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": "rpctest", "method": "getwalletinfo", "params": () })
};

request(options, (error, response, body) => {
    if (error) {
        console.error('An error occurred: ', error);
    } else {
        json = JSON.parse(body);
        console.log(json.result.balance.bitcoin);
    }
});

The output will show the bitcoin balance returned by getwalletinfo.

If my iPad is 5-8 feet away from my mini-fridge which has ice in it, would that cause liquid damage to the iPad?

dnd 5e – What counts as a worn or carried liquid?

So another question asked about items that are worn or carried, but the spell “Frost Fingers” from page 318 of the module “Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden” says:

The cold freezes nonmagical liquids in the area that aren’t being worn or carried.

So the question would be: What counts as a worn or carried liquid? Does it have to be in an inventory or do you “wear” the water that surrounds you when you swim?

Are Confidential Transactions on Liquid Opt-in?

Bob:~$ getaddressinfo $ADDR

You should see a long value for the “confidential_key” property within the JSON formatted results. It will look something like this:

"confidential_key": "030788da8d9ca229cbe57e346daaf8d94cba3ed548b41922a8abefaec91ff1abb1"

The confidential_key is the public blinding key, which has been added to the address and is the reason why a confidential address is so long. You will also see that the “getaddressinfo” command shows an associated “unconfidential” address, which can be used to receive assets if you don’t want to make use of the Confidential Transaction feature for some reason.

Can somebody explain what the point is of “Bitcoin Lightning” and “Bitcoin Liquid”?

Even for me, who has been “into” Bitcoin for almost since the start, constantly find new weird things mentioned which are just apparently taken for granted and exist suddenly and somehow have tons of support and users.

Today, I learned about the existence of “Bitcoin Liquid”. I had not heard of it ever until today (2021-01-21). Apparently, it’s the same thing as “Bitcoin Lightning”, in that it’s not a separate “altcoin”, but somehow “attached to” Bitcoin yet not using the Bitcoin blockchain. Makes no sense to me.

I do know that “Lightning” was touted as a solution when the Bitcoin network was all clogged up with waiting times for transactions a few years ago, but since then, I’ve not heard one peep of it. Never heard it mentioned at all. I assumed that it was dead. But apparently it still exists, and now “Liquid” also exists. Are they competing against each other?

I find it utterly impossible to figure anything out by reading their official websites, because they always use bombastic wording and list how many groups support them and they are the future and blablabla… Useless information. I want to know neutral, real information. I can’t find it anywhere.

What exactly are “Bitcoin Lightning” and “Bitcoin Liquid”? Why do they exist? Why aren’t these “BIP”s put into Bitcoin itself? How can they be attached to Bitcoin yet be separate? Is one of them objectively better than the other? Do they solve different problems? Is one of them dead now? Should I be using/bothering with them? Are they an attempt to take over Bitcoin slowly by not being an “altcoin” upfront, but slowly turning away from Bitcoin?

I swear, I could probably sit there and spend my entire life doing nothing but trying to read up on Bitcoin-related stuff and still never have any clue what’s going on. It seems like not one day passes without some “revolutionary” and “fantastic” new invention which seems to be little more than a slick website with nonsensical sales talk on it.

I’m looking to get a grasp of the state of Bitcoin and its development. I have no idea how these weird “sidechains” fit into that or why I should pay any attention to them. Maybe it’s the best thing ever and makes perfect sense?

blockstream – What is the difference between the two transaction headers on the Bitcoin Liquid sidechain network?

You can see transactions for this asset
https://blockstream.info/liquid/address/H4UWQS836njW4QJ6WfkGAPjaYtK2twLnZE

For the second transaction, it has a header of

  • 802dc4c4a08fcf4f50e4320bdb5eb596afc01c95dd0ff6afb83304aeb989be15 (2020-01-07 11:21:58 UTC)

Underneath the transaction, is a another header of

  • 81efc96bea93fcb5992831d8311dec63a0b1d17072ec2e6f1263901b1bd26000 (2019-10-31 19:05:58 UTC)

What is the difference between these two? why does one transaction have two headers?
