[Bitcoin-development] Sudden temporary drop in reachable nodes?

2014-03-26 Thread Mike Hearn
Hey Addy, I am seeing a big drop in reachable nodes on http://getaddr.bitnodes.io/dashboard/ starting from about March 25th 7:20pm and coming back 9:35pm. Is this a glitch in the monitoring system or did some real network event happen then?

2014-03-26 Thread Addy Yeow
Hi Mike, That was because I had to restart the crawler for update. This disconnects the crawler from all reachable nodes temporarily and it will take about 15 minutes (3 snapshots) before the crawler stabilize again. I will look into annotating these drops with a note. Cheers, Addy On Thu, Mar

[Bitcoin-development] New BIP32 structure

Myself, Thomas V (Electrum) and Marek (Trezor) got together to make sure our BIP32 wallet structures would be compatible - and I discovered that only I was planning to use the default structure. Because I'm hopeful that we can get a lot of interoperability between wallets with regards to

Yeah, for those cases we'd need to think of something else. That gets into the realm of creating our own infrastructure though ... -- ___ Bitcoin-development mailing list

But these cases are the norm, rather than the exception. Of all these places I spend my money at during the day I hardly ever know their official name. I'm thinking in terms of bakery, indian restaurant or snack vending machine. In Germany usually businesses are named like the people that run it.

Thanks for starting the discussion on finding a better structure. For me, the most important thing is either we're 100% interoperable or 0%. There should not be anything inbetween, as users will delete seeds without knowing there is still money in them on another implementation. I heard from

This might be tangential, but the comment about refund chains reminded me. Armory will be implementing multi-sig/linked wallets where a each device has a parallel HDW branch and produces P2SH addresses. For those types of wallets, I plan to allocate two chains /per signing authority/. If you

2014-03-26 Thread Allen Piscitello
For every branch (say multiple accounts), how would a new wallet be able to know how many sequence items to scan? It seems like not only do you need to have standard rules for the hierarchy, but how the usage can be detected. The other scanning seems pretty straightforward. For accounts, it
