# If you want to remove one transaction six block ago,
# there is one solution:
# buy more than half of Bitcoin hash power, calculate all transaction again, until you become the longest chain and all full node accept it
# Diff is the block you want to re-org
# k is your hash power/other hash power
# x is the block you need to generate
# diff = kx - x
# diff = (k-1)x
# x = diff/(k-1)
# k = reorg_hash_percent/(1-reorg_hash_percent)
# how to use:
# reorg_hash_percent is 0.6 if you have 60% hash power, you need to generate 12 block to be longest chain.
