In case anyone is still wondering about this, current wallets include code that puts the 'payload hash' into the block's hash, which then becomes part of the block's generation signature. I believe older wallets also did this, so the issue the OP is proposing already exist in the code. Fancy, eh?
Yes, I was talking about grinding from genesis.
The miner can in theory change previous block and include/exlude previous transactions and from that change the
blocksignature. but i think we are now moving from grinding to a 51% attack to keep up with current chain after that.
The block the miner changes does not get a new cumulative difficulty so the nodes will not change block
since it is the same as the old block.
the-traditional-phrase-system doesn't have to be correct spelling. Deliberate spelling errors or 3v3n 1337 5p33ch words can be put in manually. my favourite is mashing the keyboard. who's gonna get it now.
@falconCoin actually scrap my comment O_O just check my site and it also return timeout error (means my php proxy got it from whatever wallet i use). That is indeed very strange and might be something on global scale (tho i would assume we would be informed by ISP or whatnot)
@luxe, thank you for responding. Yes, I did have the "\burst" in the URL, but the connection failed. When I removed it, it appeared to succeed. But the bad rabbit actually created an empty burst_db database in the burstcoin_1.2.8 folder and connected to this.
What I discovered after replacing the "\burst" to the URL is that I can connect only if the wallet server is not running. Not sure why yet. Perhaps it is because I am accessing the database locally instead of over Ethernet. I'll do more experimenting.
Thanks again for your help!
Looks like your connection to Burst - Efficient HDD Mining was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
