What would happen if I try to broadcast a transaction being funded by segwit outputs with a bitcoin unlimited node?


Segwit transaction format is unknown for BU nodes. The peer either drop the connection or even ban your IP address for a while.

  • Wouldn't it just see it as anyone can spend and broadcast it? – Errol Mar 31 '18 at 19:02
  • Segwit transactions in "old" format are non-standard and are not relayed by default clients. Segwit transactions in "new" format are invalid for non-segwit clients – amaclin Mar 31 '18 at 19:43
  • There is no ban for sending non-standard transactions, AFAIK. – Pieter Wuille Apr 1 '18 at 2:42
