Smashed the like before the internet was invented.
Could u use a better mic, sound's to low. thx!
please anyone clarify, if the bug was exploited, can the miners spend all the bitcoin in our addresses?
When was this discovered and fixed? Does it mean bitcoin cash has this bug?
You are the best BTC teacher that exists i hope you stay for a long time Andreas 🙂
who was responsible in refactoring the code that produced that side-effect? can you know this in github?
I got question. What would happen if a government decided to through billions of dollars to build a mining farm. How hard would it be for say the us to through a trillion dollars at a mining farm to make themselves above the 50% of the network. What is in place to make sure that doesn't change bitcoin? Uncle Sam spends billions if not trillions just to spy on us what happens if they turn that against bitcoin?
BCH dev found it, even divided Bitcoin is still the most anti-fragile thing that exists. Finanical tribal anymocity of some prominent bitcoiners is counterproductive
I preprepared my comment before you even posted this video.
Smashed the like before satoshi posted the whitepaper!
FYI: 0.17.0 is out. Run a full node please 🙂
Andreas is my hero but I don't think his closing remarks were right. He said this didn't kill Bitcoin; it only made it stronger. Um, yeah but that's because the bug wasn't exploited. Imagine if the programmer that discovered it quietly took it to Chase Bank CEO Jamie Dimon. Andreas could have conceded we almost saw Bitcoin go to zero.
Wouldn't test driven development (TDD) with solid code coverage have exposed this bug when the associated optimization was introduced? Do C++ programmers just not have TDD in their culture?
How do we know the error was not exploited?
Smash or pass?
