Re: Odd amount of generated coins


How is the amount of bitcoins generated per block determined? It was my understanding that is is currently fixed to 50, however a few days ago I happened to generate amount of 52.64:

Status: 729 blocks
Date: 05/15/10 08:38
Source: Generated
Credit: 52.64
Net amount: +52.64

How comes?


In the SVN version, if a transaction requires a transaction fee, it says
“This transaction is over the size limit.  You can still send it for a fee of #,
which goes to the nodes that process your transaction and helps to support the network.
Do you want to pay the fee?”

If you don’t have enough money with the fee added, it says
“Total exceeds your balance when the # transaction fee is included  “
