2BTC bounty awarded to the SimBit network simulator

simbit is a javascript p2p network simulator which focuses on consensus networks like Bitcoin. It can be executed with Node (in clustered simulations) or in the web browser with visualization. It is a general framework for simulating any number of latency-sensitive networks, strategies and protocols. Project page: http://github.com/ebfull/simbit The standard bitcoin simulation includes a working blockchain (with difficulty adjustment, reorgs), maporphans, mempool, UTXO, orphan transactions, inventory system, peer manager and mining simulator. This is still in alpha. In fact the TCP-like network interface for nodes does not yet account for the size of messages between nodes, and nodes do not yet (but can) simulate computational delay. Also, the network topography is really arbitrary and probably does not represent the real bitcoin network. It also does not come close to per...
