Latest Bitcoin Unlimited code patch replaces many instances of “assert()” w/ “DbgAssert()” to avoid those pesky crash-causing sanity checks.

@gubatron Isn’t it a lot harder to mine blocks when your node has crashed?

@digitsu @brucefenton’s point was regarding how a node determines the “correct” chain; cumulative work is but one of many checks.

@MadBitcoins Caveat: good luck spending separately between chains without replay protection software.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MadBitcoins

@brucefenton Yep, “most work” chain is more accurate, but /even then/ only when referring to compatible chain forks that follow same rules.

@bitrated Wouldn’t that mean no more escrow services?

@LarryBitcoin @giacomozucco More polite people ask “what’s your acceptable depth?”

@alansilbert SegWit supporters should tap him as a spokesman to tout transaction malleability fixes. 🙃

@twobitidiot Why is chaos imminent? I doubt whales use Circle.

@badslinky In the event that occurred I’d probably evaluate BitcoinEC

@drwasho Indeed, enterprises can afford that cost. But I like to think that Statoshi has value for users & developers. Can I charge for it?

I’m the guy who gets paged in the middle of the night if our infrastructure blows up. I won’t run unstable software. twitter.com/brianchoffman/…

@Melt_Dem Because you’re storing BTC with @circlepay and they don’t want to hold it for you?

Uh oh, is this another Bitcoin Unlimited vulnerability being exploited? github.com/BitcoinUnlimit… H/T @thomaskerin

@BronxR Are node operators reporting DDOS as opposed to process crashes / exploits? I know DNS amplification attacks have been used in past.

@TuurDemeester I seem to recall @jratcliff saying that he needs to rewrite his analytics software in order to run it on recent data…

@ryanxcharles And yet all the electricity in the world can’t make my node accept a block that doesn’t abide by the rules I choose…

@drwasho Just checked with my VPS host for statoshi.info (@gandibar) and their largest disk is 2 TB for $115 / month. 😞

@Kosmatos A BU node operator could lower the default EB config to say, 2MB but that risks potentially get forked off the network…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Kosmatos

@checksum0 To be clear, I’m just trying to define resource bounding in terms that node operators can understand. Good for planning purposes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to checksum0

Correction: there’s a message limit of 16 * node’s EB config value. Thus EB of 16 => 256MB github.com/BitcoinUnlimit… twitter.com/lopp/status/84…

@ErolKazan indeed, plus bad things would start to happen long before that size was reached.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ErolKazan

@MrHodl @eordano *shrugs* anyone is free to activate it and fork off whenever they want.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MrHodl

Bitcoin Unlimited max block size is 256MB, raising worst case annual node disk usage from 50 Gigabytes ($1.50) to 13 Terabytes ($400.) 😬

@MadBitcoins It’s unclear what you’re asking because there is no such thing as “@Blockstream Core”
