Reworking Bitcoin Transaction Fees

Transaction fees as they are currently implemented in the original Bitcoin code suffer from a few problems:

  • The rules are somewhat complicated and are not at all transparent
  • Fees are hard-coded and do not reflect real costs
  • Adding fees to a transaction doesn't necessarily make it more likely the transaction will be confirmed more quickly.

The following is a summary of proposals and ideas put forth by others to provide for more discussion.

# First run:
apt-get install apt-cacher python-vm-builder
vi /etc/default/apt-cacher # ensure autostart is enabled
sudo service apt-cacher start
# Note that apt-cacher caused some problems for me, you can also try apt-cacher-ng, making sure to set the listen address to 127.0.0.1 (which it for some reason doesn't do if you have IPv6 in some cases)
