fc3f81c625720063c5cab2145bcb5ef20b13ff0aa73b0b2435ffdb645acfcb8b has the warning “Transaction rejected by our node. Reason: The transaction is not final.” on Blockchain.info.
The same transaction shows up with five confirmations on Blockexplorer.com.
What does that “the transaction is not final” mean, and why did blockchain.info reject the transaction?

Like most things in life, it all comes down to money. Put simply, segwit paves the way for lightning network, and lightning network takes money away from miners. It does that by creating a layer 2 network of payment channels that compete with the layer 1 transaction fees that miners rely on to pay for their equipment and electricity. With LN, anyone with a decent supply of Bitcoin can open payment channels and earn transaction fees that would have otherwise gone to the miners. Miners don’t…
WTF Coinbase? I’ve been using them since launch without a problem, ever. Been squeaky clean, and just buy some coins every now and then. It’s been tied to my bank and CC for years, including full verification. Noticed they have Etherium now, so I figured I’d buy my max of 1 of that, then another 1 BTC The charge my bank, then an hour later, I get an email that they are closing my account. It’s been nearly a week. No response email, and no refund of the money they took. WTF? How is this not…

I’m wondering why the nonce is included in the block header, and thus in the
prevBlockHash of the subsequent block, etc. What would break if you didn’t do that?
It seems to me that you would still be (a) able to validate the block, and (b) unable to mess around with the transactions in the block, because that would modify the
hashMerkeRoot field, and thus render the block invalid.
Maybe the final bolt in the grand Bitcoin design was the missing element of a central point of coersion. I like Vitalik, he’s a rad guy and a little brainiac genius. I do however question his ties TO Ethereum and the very meddling in the affairs of bad actors upon the system he created. It’s a great philosophical quandary to ponder and maybe that is the one factor that separates bitcoin from ethereum and some others that have obvious central leaders in development. Bitcoin is harder to…
I deposited bitcoins with this company months ago, roughly 10,000USD, with the price of gold tanking I decide to withdraw and these are the emails I get. 1.) Prove your source of funds 2.) Your withdrawal has been rejected 3.) Your account has been closed Bearing in mind all of these were sent within a single hour of one another and I did not get a chance to respond to a single one. Now when I try to log on to my account it is gone! I am absolutely shocked by the this and I will keep a running commentary on this situation but I am warning you all against the use of this company!!!
