@oocBlog @pierre_rochard Hm that was right around when the backbone network was deployed; can you run another analysis?

@DJ_Erock23 @AlpacaSW @aantonop I’m working on keeping the site up; the software I use isn’t designed for public traffic / high loads.

aantonop Bitcoin blockchain stress-test in progress. More than 24,000 unconfirmed transactions at peak. See a chart here:

@pierre_rochard Maybe; my understanding is most miners already use the relay/backbone network. I defer to @oocBlog for miner expertise.

Looks like a lot of the mining pools still have their internal block size limits set below 1MB pic.twitter.com/xnWMHktsmP

@pierebel @BryceWeiner This is all going down on mainnet with the 1 MB block size limit.

@pierebel @BryceWeiner The stress test? Shows that if usage exceeds max block size, txs get stuck in mempool; confirmation times increase.

@pierebel @BryceWeiner Looks like the popularity is getting the best of the server; Graphite / Grafana aren’t really meant for high usage.

Looks like we peaked at 20 transactions per second; about 10X more than the current block size supports. statoshi.info/#/dashboard/db…

@TheBlueMatt @ryanxcharles @gavinandresen Given that Bitcoin is whatever the community embraces, perhaps you should be convincing them?

@TheBlueMatt @ryanxcharles @gavinandresen If the experts are right and the rest of the community is wrong, does Bitcoin deserve to fail?

@pierre_rochard BTCPlex docs say it took a week+ to build a year ago. BitcoinVisualizer imports from @blockchain API, probably takes WEEKS.

@pierre_rochard Based upon my quick scan, all 3 of those use the naive (but safer) serialized approach of 1 block at a time, 1 tx at a time.

@oleganza Oh come on, @port8333 was “attacking” the network?

@pierre_rochard I haven’t though I would love to; are there any open source explorers other than Toshi and Insight?

ErikVoorhees Ross Ulbricht is being sentenced today. He did more to reduce violence in the drug trade than probably anyone in history.

@ncweaver @kristovatlas @pierebel Freedom is a key enabler of people exercising their power irresponsibly and harming innocents.

via Twitter for Android in reply to ncweaver

@ncweaver @kristovatlas @pierebel I don’t, but nor do I consider financial privacy / money laundering / victimless crimes to be immoral.

via Twitter for Android in reply to ncweaver

@ncweaver @kristovatlas @pierebel You seem to be using the legal definitions while others use moral beliefs, thus conflict emerges.
