Re: [Bitcoin-development] About watch-only addresses

2014-10-20 Thread Mike Hearn

 This feature makes possible Bitcoin Core to read a balance of any
 public address via RPC call or, after importing the balance, it became
 available only via QT interface?


Neither. A watching wallet still has to be synced with the chain in the
same way as any other wallet, i.e. after adding an address, if it was
already used, you must rescan.

Re: [Bitcoin-development] About watch-only addresses

2014-10-20 Thread m...@bitwatch.co
This is just a guess, but I can imagine sipa's address index branch
might be more suitable for an use case where information about any
address is required - jmcorgan continued to maintain a usually somewhat
up-to-date version:

https://github.com/jmcorgan/bitcoin/tree/addrindex

As for balance queries, that's not possible out of the box and I have my
own branch for this with a few other RPC calls that are noted in the README:

https://github.com/dexX7/bitcoin/tree/master-addrindex-extended

When using the original, you need to ensure a transaction is part of the
main chain and wasn't orphaned. If you consider using my branch, please
consider it twice and review the changes first.

 I made a branch of Bitcoin 0.9.3 plus backports including watch-only
 and a huge pile of patches cleaning it up from the master branch.  It
 seems to work fine although it is not heavily tested.  I suppose if
 you use ONLY for watch-only it can't be harmful?  Dunno.

 It has been merged. There is the importaddress RPC call, which works
 the same as importprivkey except that you a pass it an address.

 a rough ETA

 Yes - aim is in a few months, probably by the end of the year.

 AFAIK there are no nightly builds at this moment. Warren Togami was
 building them for a while (at http://nightly.bitcoin.it/) but he
 stopped some time around June.

 It's not recommended to use master without at least a little bit of
 development/debugging experience of yourself (to trace down problems
 when they appear), so it's best to build it yourself if you're going
 to test day-to-day development versions.

[Bitcoin-development] About watch-only addresses

2014-10-17 Thread Flavien Charlon
Hi,

What is the status of watch-only addresses in Bitcoin Core? Is it merged in
master and usable? Is there documentation on how to add a watch-only
address through RPC.

Also, I believe that is going towards the 0.10 release, is there a
rough ETA for a release candidate?

Thanks
