A Look at the First Phone-to-Phone Bitcoin Transfer Using a Nokia N900 Smartphone – Bitcoin News

When Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin, the full node client came with a wallet often referred to as Bitcoin-Qt. Nakamoto’s Simplified Payment Verification (SPV) concept wasn’t available until two years later, after former Bitcoin Core developer Mike Hearn published BitcoinJ in 2011. However, prior to the first SPV client or an improved lightweight Bitcoin wallet, it was the first phone to Bitcoin transaction took place over 11 years ago on December 7, 2010.

Satoshi’s Bitcoin is approaching its 14th anniversary, which will happen on January 3, 2023, and so far, the Bitcoin network is working 99.9877985271% of the time since its inception on January 3, 2009. For the first few years of Bitcoin’s life, the ecosystem had very little infrastructure compared to the large number of cryptocurrency exchanges today. Bitcoin wallets. The second Bitcoin client for the protocol in the history of the network, Bitcoin Posted on January 9, 2009, before BitcoinJ was announced, everyone had to take advantage of the full node client, also known as Bitcoin – Qt.

However, before Mike Hearn announcing BitcoinJ on March 7, 2011, and before the SPV wallet model became very popular and was being boosted on mobile phones, the first recorded phone-to-phone Bitcoin transaction took place on December 7, 2010. At that time, a bitcointalk.org member called “doubleA post stating that it was able to run Bitcoind on a Nokia-made N900 mobile phone. Doublec posted his message at 5:47 a.m. (ET) and by 1:30 p.m., a bitcointalk.org member Reebok He explained that he got Bitcoind working on his Nokia N900.

Ryback replied, “That’s pretty cool.” “I installed it on my N900 and I’m about to block 2000. I wonder what the khash will be – my guess is 50 khash/sec. Let me know your bitcoin receiving address and we can make our first p2p (phone to phone) transaction.”

The N900 takes advantage of the Linux-based Maemo 5 OS, an operating system created for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. “Programming for the N900 is generally done in C++ on a Linux PC using a cross compiler,” Ribuck explains in the December 2010 post.

Rose Doublec and Share his bitcoin address With Ribuck and the rest of the forum. “Manufactured [18T1j] On my phone,” Doublec noted sharing it BTC Tabuk. “I am interested in what the battery looks like to run it full time. It took me a long time to get a file [blockchain]. I get between 130 and 150 Khashes/sec when I did a test run of a short generation.” Reebok Send 0.42 BTC The next day on December 8, 2010.

“You sent 0.42 BTC From my N900 at 10.55 GMT. “If I receive it, this is my first ph2ph bitcoin transfer,” Reebok said. Like Doublec, the bitcointalk.org member said he was mining a . file BTC Blockchain with Nokia N900. But the amount of allocated hashrate that Ribuck’s and Doublec’s Nokia produced were not enough to generate a collective reward.

“Like a Doublec phone, my hashes are between 130 and 150 khash/s,” Ribuck said. The average expected time to create a block is 2,869 days at the current difficulty level of 8,078. That’s approx [eight] years, so I’m not holding my breath.”

bitcointalk.org member Ribuck added:

However, if we had 2,869 people born via phones, someone would create a ban on their phone every day, so it’s possible that one day a ban will be created on someone’s phone.

a BTC The ban will never be generated by mobile after Ribuck and Doublec’s conversation, as network difficulty grew exponentially during the early days. GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) farms started popping up at that time, as a pseudonym Artforz claimed Mining 26,650 bitcoins over nine weeks on September 23, 2010.

Not long after that, Marek Palatinos (Slush pool, now known as Braiins Pool) created the first bitcoin mining pool on November 27, 2010. Soon the first ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) mining platform was created in the consumer market Available By Avalon at the beginning of 2013. After two years of using GPUs and ASICs together, GPU mining is no longer relevant after a reliable consumer stream BTC ASIC miners were made available to the general public.

Despite the fact that no one was able to mine BTC Using a mobile phone, Ribuck’s and Doublec’s phone-to-phone transaction was still the first recorded transaction in history with two N900 smartphones. Ribuck noted that it was easy to install the Bitcoin client on the N900 because it hosts a Linux operating system with root access. Furthermore, the N900 programming has generally been done using C++ and is also compatible with the Bitcoin code base.
