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 🙂
