Muslim clerics just declared that owning bitcoin was compatible with Islam. A saudi just opened another $100 million dollar bitcoin fund as a result. The new flood of money coming in will dwarf all previous inflows.

Gemini auctions beats previous record for daily auction volume, again!

For the second time this week, it was a record day in volume (measured in USDs) for the Gemini daily auctions.

Last month Gemini added a second daily auction, with the newly added auction occurring at a time of day convenient for those in east Asia (7pm SGT/HKT, which is 4am PDT).

The two auctions together have seen rising daily volume. Today, that volume was over $ 3.0M. That's about 7% above their previous daily record (which itself occurred on Tuesday).

Transaction Input – previous hash size?

I am reading the bitcoin developer reference and having a look on the transaction input structure. If you have a look here https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#raw-transaction-format it says that the previous output has 36 bytes. I am confused, because I read also the ‘Mastering Bitcoin Book’ and this wiki page (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction) and they state that the size is 32 bytes.

Is this a mistake in the reference or is it something new which did not propagate to the other sites? Would be nice if someone could clear that up for me 🙂

How to see previous transactions?

This question is linked to this one. I try to understand the bitcoin block by exploring and viewing every piece of information, since the blockchain is public and shared.

When the sender transacts some bitcoins to the recipient, he technically transact previous transactions. So in a transaction, it is possible to find successively all previous transactions. Where can we find this piece of information? (I remembered that I already saw this information on a website, I thought that was https://blockchain.info.)
