About the 163 GRC to everyone yesterday

in #gridcoin4 years ago

The 162 and 1 GRC received by everyone yesterday which was sent to an apparent address of 1Wh4bh are actually "burn" transactions to an empty address. The wallet currently has a bug that incorrectly marks this as a transaction that is yours and displays it and adds it to your balance. The amount is not spendable by anyone, because it has no actual address/key in the transaction output script. So there is absolutely no danger of double spends. We will be issuing a new leisure build with a patch in short order to suppress the output for both the balance and display. Sorry for the confusion, and disappointment... everybody is not 163 GRC richer :)

Thanks for the update @jamescowens. Out of curiosity, will this amount not be used for staking either?

No key... no stake! :)

I knew there was something odd when they didn't display a sender address in the Recent Transactions list.
Thanks for the information.

OMG! Now I Understood!
