Another example: if the user is asked to think of a number in the range [0. If we assume that the mouse has changed its position in the range of [0. 1000], this number will hold about 9-10 bits of entropy (because 2^10 = 1024). to securely generate a 256-bit integer), you will need to take into account a sequence of several such events (like mouse movements and keyboard interracions from the user). 255] pixels, the entropy collected from this mouse movement should be about 8 bits (because 2^8 = 255). To collect 256 bits of entropy (e.g. In computer science " entropy " means unpredictable randomness , and is usually measured in bits. For example, if you move your computer's mouse, it will generate some hard-to-predict events, like the start location and the end location of the mouse cursor.
If we move BTCs (chain1-assets) over to chain 2, then we hope that we can move them back to chain 1. If they can, then isn't that messing up the 21 million coin distribution? But now chain 2 is making it's own BTCs (chain2-assets). Call the main bitcoin chain is chain 1, and some new side chain chain 2. If not, is it safe to do transactions on chain2 that mix chain1 and chain2 assets? Because after such a transaction, the resulting UTXOs are not fully chain1 or chain2 assets. Can these chain2-assets be moved back to chain 1?
After a precipitous drop to below $300 over the weekend, the price of Bitcoin
is slowly inching up this afternoon after an interesting 31,000 BTC sell-off that blew up the market early this morning.
￼Seems pretty clear to me. They want to cash out their $9m before they miss their chance. They don’t have the connections to sell off-market so they decided to sell the way they know and the way that’s guaranteed to work: a Bitstamp sell order below market. They could maybe get more money with a more sophisticated trading strategy but who cares? That’s what I’d do if I had 30,000 BTC right now and I bet you would too. They’re not experienced with handling this amount of money because they’ve never been rich before; they just got lucky. An early adopter decided $300 is their breaking point. They’ll take their $9m and retire on a beach somewhere for the rest of their lives.
- Posts must concern development of bitcoin protocol. And BNB discussions that follow. - Posts should be technical or academic in nature. - Generally encouraged: patches, notification of pull requests, Binance BIP proposals, academic paper announcements. - Generally discouraged: shower thoughts, wild speculation, jokes, +1s, non-technical bitcoin
issues, rehashing settled topics without new data, moderation concerns. - No offensive posts, no personal attacks. - Detailed patch discussion generally better on a GitHub PR.
the chain2-assets cannot be moved back to the main chain for the reason you state. You can exchange a chain1 asset with a chain 2 asset on the side chain with someone, but you can't just magically convert a chain1 asset into a chain2 asset and vice versa. chain1 and chain2 assets cannot be "mixed" on the side chain because they exist as different coins on the sidechain blockchain.
I don’t catch every Corbett Report but I am unable to recall an episode that specifically addresses religion. What, you might ask, does religion have to do with gaming? The control of human behavior by stimulating subconscious brain structures.
Such calculations are called pseudo-random functions . PRNGs are functions that start from some initial entropy (seed) and calculate the next random number by some calculation which is unpredictable without knowing the seed.
Thus muchas gracias for crypto sharing your … thoughts estimado m.clare. And you didn’t offend me, because I ain’t religious or atheistic for me spiritualism is being open minded and admitting that I don’t much about everything.
Transaction fees is one example that is also used in Bitcoin
. The sidechains paper lists some alternative reward mechanisms in section 6.1 such as demurrage (percentage of held coins are redistributed automatically to miners) and creation of a seperate unpegged asset on the side chain to reward miners. However, there are many other ways to reward miners.
In computer science random numbers usually come from a pseudo-random number generators (PRNG), initialized by some unpredictable initial randomness ( entropy ). In cryptography secure PRNGs are used, known as CSPRNG , which typically combined entropy with PRNG and other techniques to make the generated randomness unpredictable .
A pseudorandom number generator ( PRNG ) is used to stretch a small amount of initial randomness into a large amount of pseudorandomness , typically for use in cryptosystems. Note than PRNGs are not cryptographically secure and are different from CSPRNGs .
I’ve spent 50 years apologizing for my existence, feeling remorse for biological urges, regretting having left a carbon footprint…. Who am I to suggest such things? Is it possible that I was conditioned by the-powers-that-shouldn’t-be to not DARE to raise questions such as the ones that elicited your emotional response? Some sort of Hitler want-to-be?
