Deposit Never Received

From Open Transactions
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Voting pools do not require that every address issued to users ever receive a blockchain transaction, and it is allowable for multiple bailments to be in progress at the same time.

If a deposit is not received because a user never initiated it from their end, no corrective action is necessary. The transaction server may limit the number of pendingBailment notices a user may have open at a given time. If a user has too many pendingBailments open it may refuse to create new ones until the old ones have been either canceled or completed. Services may also implement rate limiting to prevent a malicious user from performing a DoS attack on the pool’s bitcoin wallet or the user's OT inbox.

If the user does initiate a blockchain transaction, the voting pool relies on the blockchain network to successfully complete the transfer.
