Technical limitations similar to the ones which developers need to respect while crawling sites?

And can automated scripts be written with the limitations in mind? What are the possible bottlenecks for such operations?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the question is about external regulations and jurisdictions that will vary depending on where a user is located Jan 21, 2016 at 11:39
  • I'm reviewing this question - can you say more what you mean by "regulation"? Are you talking about legal or technical regulations? Jan 21, 2016 at 13:30
  • @paulmorriss I am asking about technical regulations. Edited the question accordingly :)

  • I don't understand the edited question in regard to technical limitations. Are there some documented cases or concerns about wallet-to-wallet transfers and if so, can you link them? Jan 21, 2016 at 13:42
  • Are you worried about being scammed, hacked, or keylogged?

I recently found this one out, but there is no checksum - so enter carefully or use a namereg according to Vitalik:

You're not meant to use ether addresses; you're meant to use the namereg and equivalents of things like bip70.

Taylor also mentioned it may be added into a version of Ethereum post homestead.

I think everyone wants checksums and understands the benefits, but delivering a stable network protocol upgrade is of chief importance right now and has been since the beginning. Additional functionality in the clients themselves will hopefully follow soon after the Homestead hard-fork. :)
