What exactly is bitcoin dust/dust attack? submitted by deleted to AskVoat

skilliard 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

A bitcoin dust attack is when the attacker sends amounts of Bitcoin so tiny that they aren't worth anything. Bitcoin transactions are made out of combining all the previous Bitcoins you received. For example, let's say I need to send $5 to Joe. Bob sends me $3, and Steve sends me $7. To send the money to Joe, I take the $3 I got from from Bob, and the $7 I got from from Steve, and combine it all in 1 transaction. With this $8 worth of inputs, I send $5 to Joe, and $3 goes back to myself as "change".

Each "input" takes up storage space. So if I send a transaction with 100 inputs, it'll be much more expensive to send than a transaction with 5 inputs. Currently, the fee for a Bitcoin transaction is currently ~$0.05 per kilobyte. The more inputs, the higher the fee.

By sending tiny amounts of Bitcoin to someone, it's like going to the electronics store and paying for a $200 item with a jar full of pennies. It's annoying as hell and not practical at all for the receiver. The end result is resources end up being used to process the dust transactions, and the receiver can't viably spend them.

Let's not give him what he wants-views and attention. It seems all you gotta do to make money on YouTube nowadays is make a video that pisses people off, and it will be shared like crazy.

It doesn't matter if your video is bombed with 95% downvotes, you still make a ton of money from ads. Even if you're using adblock, it still increases his view count which makes the video get more traffic(videos with more views show up more often in searches or in the "recommended for you" section).

AMD seems to be developing Nintendo NX APU submitted by shadoworso to hardware

skilliard 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Hopefully AMD can benefit enough from SoC contracts to stay in business. I just hope they don't slowly fade away from the desktop discrete GPu/CPU business for mobile APU/SoC design.

Microsoft's DirectX 12 Enables Intel, AMD, Nvidia GPUs To Work Together submitted by FireFlyCGI to pcgaming

skilliard 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

It enables it, let's just hope that NVIDIA doesn't push driver updates that would remove this functionality. They pushed a driver update that intentionally made it impossible to use a NVIDIA card as a physx card if the main card is AMD, so it wouldn't be surprising if they did the same thing with this.
