TOP 5 Biggest Bitcoin Transactions in the History ...

Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Zcash

Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies expose your entire payment history to the public. Zcash is the first open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography.

[Megathread] On August 1, 2017 at 6:12pm UTC (block 478559), a new altcoin called Bcash (BCH) has been created using Bitcoin's transaction history. Bitcoin itself continues to function normally.

What is happening?

In what has been touted as the culmination of a multi-year scaling debate, on August 1, 2017 at 6:12pm UTC (block 478559) a new altcoin was created from Bitcoin. The new altcoin is known as "Bcash" (BCH) or "Bitcoin Cash" (BCC) depending on which wallet/exchange you ask. In order to avoid confusion with actual Bitcoin and other altcoins, we recommend readers refer to the new altcoin as "Bcash" (BCH).
As with all altcoins, Bcash is technically off-topic for the /Bitcoin subreddit. However, Bcash was created based on Bitcoin's transaction history, and therefore all Bitcoin owners should be able to retrieve an equal amount of Bcash with some effort. Your Bitcoins are just as safe as they were before the chain split, but you should take care not to compromise your private keys if you wish to retrieve Bcash. This is not urgent unless you wish to trade immediately. If you choose to retrieve your Bcash, please be aware that consolidating your UTXOs will impact your privacy on both chains.
In order to help readers navigate this confusing situation and minimize disruption of relevant content, /Bitcoin has dedicated this sticky thread where readers can ask questions or leave comments pertaining to Bcash. If you are wondering how to retrieve your new altcoin holdings, please read the discussion thoroughly as your questions may already have been answered. If you don't see a similar question, please be sure to mention your wallet method and preferred exchange so that other readers can help address your concerns. You are also invited to submit new threads to the /Bcash subreddit if you so choose.
If you would like to understand the motives behind this new altcoin, please read The Future of “Bitcoin Cash:” An Interview with Bitcoin ABC lead developer Amaury Séchet.
A Beginner’s Guide to Claiming Your “Bitcoin Cash” (and Selling It) is a must-read for anyone feeling particularly lost.

But I thought we avoided a chain split?

For those of you who thought we avoided a chain split with the activation of BIP91 a couple weeks ago, here's a very loose summary of what happened on the Segwit (BIP141, BIP148, BIP91) front:
  1. Bitcoin Core team deployed Segwit (BIP141) last year
  2. Miners refused to activate Segwit via BIP9
  3. Users deployed UASF (BIP148 by shaolinfry) to require Segwit (BIP141) signaling by August 1st
  4. Miners activated BIP91 (by James Hilliard) on July 20th in response to UASF (BIP148)
  5. BIP91 complied with UASF (BIP148) by enforcing Segwit (BIP141) signaling ahead of August 1st
  6. Segwit BIP141 is expected to lock in on Tuesday, August 8th
  7. Segwit BIP141 is expected to activate on Monday, August 21st
  8. BIP148 activated successfully without any chain split
  9. Another altcoin called "SegWit2x" (B2X) may be created later this year, similar to Bcash but with less safety precautions regarding replay protection
Despite all the progress we're making in scaling Bitcoin both on-chain and off-chain, the Bcash crew has decided to part ways with the Bitcoin project by creating a new altcoin. The key differences are that they are attempting to gut Segwit from their forked client, as well as increasing the deprecated max_block_size attribute to 8MB.

Various Announcements:

Electrum 1 - Electrum 2 - Trezor - Ledger - Coinbase - Breadwallet - Bitfinex - Airbitz - Blockchain.info - Exodus - Jaxx - Kraken - Bittrex - Greyscale - Yobit - Bitcoin Core - Bitstamp - [Mycelium]() - [GreenAddress]() - BitcoinTalk - (Reply in comments to add other services)

/Bitcoin wishes Bcash a happy farewell and the best of luck in their new venture!

How can Bitcoin's transaction history be hacked?

One of the downsides to centralized ledgers is that you must trust those who have access to them not to change them. Blockchain tech is obviously much different. I'm under the impression that for someone to change Bitcoin's transaction history they'd have to go through all of these steps:
  1. Control 51% or more of the mining power.
  2. Change a past transaction.
  3. Change all transactions affected by that transaction, up to the present moment. This must be done faster than the rate at which new blocks are added.
  4. Somehow apply the change to every node on the network?
Can anyone verify that this is exactly what would need to happen in order to change just one past transaction in Bitcoin's blockchain? Is this even possible?

A new altcoin called 'Bitcoin Core'(BCR) will be created using Bitcoin's transaction history in 3 months. Bitcoin itself continues to function normally.

Question: Is there a clean downloadable dataset of the entire bitcoin transaction history?

I understand that the information is stored in every client. but I don't have the skills to pull it out into a easy to view format.
I'm looking for something like a clean and comprehensive CSV/Excel file or a database dump.

Bitcoin transaction history data sets

I'm working on a Machine Learning project of predicting Bitcoin Prices, taking inspiration from this MIT study: http://news.mit.edu/2014/mit-computer-scientists-can-predict-price-bitcoin.
I'm looking for publicly available data sets of transaction history in large quantity. The people in the above study "used data related to price and order book obtained from Okcoin.com. The order book data consists of 60 best prices at which one is willing to buy or sell at a given point of time. The data points were acquired at the interval of every two seconds for 6 months, for a total of 200 million data points".
I'm new to this area so on this site and others like blockchain.info, I've only been able to see the transactions, don't know how to download them. Something in .csv format would be ideal.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
P.S - I came across ABE (https://github.com/bitcoin-abe/bitcoin-abe) to parse the block files, but obviously need the block files (apparently in .dat format) first.

Not keeping track of the Bitcoin transaction history - possible?

Would it be possible to change Bitcoin such that keeping a full transaction history is not required?
What if there were this one additional rule to Bitcoin as-is:
The amount of bitcoin that an address holds cannot change, except when spent, then it becomes zero.
Consequences:
Now, if I am not mistaken, the transaction history becomes irrelevant. An address (coin) can only occur once in any transaction. Once an address has been used, the address can be discarded and a new address is created. The blockchain holds only the new address, and publishes information such that only the receiver can derive the corresponding private key.
Any address that has been used can be discarded, effectively discarding the entire Bitcoin transaction history. All that needs to be kept at any point in time is the current set of addresses (coins), information that allows derivation of the private keys by the coin owners, and the corresponding set of private keys themselves by the owners of the coins.
The advantages would be: increased privacy, and a much smaller blockchain. After most coins would have been minted, the blockchain size would no longer grow - it'd become constant.

question about bitcoin transaction history

I'm new to bitcoin, and I've seen various comments about bitcoin replacing the banking system, becoming a worldwide standard currency etc. However, when I downloaded the software and opened my wallet, it started downloading blockchains, which unless I'm mistaken encode the entire history of all bitcoin transactions, am I right?
If so, what will happen when the list of transactions becomes too big, as it will do if it becomes a de facto currency? I mean, imagine if everyone who has a normal bank account had to have the entire history of all transactions ever, stored on their computer.
Am I missing something?
