Bitcoin SpammerGate?

#Bitcoin #SpammerGate?
Is it spam? or is it devs testing? Lightning Network testing? New wallets created by a 3rd party service?(think gambling, faucets, referral stuff, wallets, signup bonuses, etc), or is it NYE fireworks on the blockchain(lol)?



*1st 4+ minutes is me scrolling through thousands of 0.00001 BTC (13 cents ) outputs in groups of about 100(?) and me pointing out the addresses/transaction IDs/etc
Its a lot to sit through, but I figured I'd be more thorough so that it would be really hard to say I faked it or whatever. Check all the stuff it is all legit.

@ 3:10 - bottom of tree ends in currently unconfirmed transaction with 100(?) output.
@ 7:15 watch a totally different spam Transaction propagate while I am recording live
@ 8:00 another one
@ 10:45 another one propagates and has ties directly to a previous 100+ output Tx
@ 12:30 a 3rd joins the party directly tied to the previous 2
@ 15:00 2 more tied to a 1300BTC balance
@ 16:30 another one pops up tied to the earlier trifecta (3)
and on and on and on....forever into the past, and forever into the future apparently lol

TREE:

blockchain visualizer:

tweet to share pics instead of vid:



sorry for the lag on the video at times. this computer doesnt even have a GPU and had trouble doing the video/audio and the blockchain visualizer along with huge transaction trees simultaneously

@7:00-10:00 it really starts getting interesting when you can watch the outputs propagate on the blockchain visualizer. i highly recommend watching the whole thing thru, even though @5:00 and after it lags pretty bad

Sold all my GPUs back in October lol xD

I need to find someone/something that can visualize the whole tree to see where the Tx originates & how big it is

My tweet about it:

TREE FOR TRANSACTION
100+(?) transactions for 0.00001 BTC(13.8 cents at this time)


See it on the blockchain here:

GO DOWN TO THE LAST ONE WHICH IS AN OUTPUT OF JUST UNDER 1 BTC (WHERE THE CHANGE WENT)

CLICK ON THE YELLOW CIRCLE AT THE BOTTOM TO SEE WHERE THE CHANGE GOES

It makes another tree of 100+(?) transactions for 0.00001 BTC (13.5 cents)


and on and on until you get to the end, where there is a currently unconfirmed 100(?) output transaction (blue circle)


In the blockchain visualizer, you can watch the little suckers propagate live

and eventually they reveal that they are linked in a long chain

I also noticed one of these other big two are associated with a 1300 BTC address

They're drawing triangles? Prisms? lol
