As posted by redditor ethererik in the post GovernMental's 1100 ETH jackpot payout is stuck because it uses too much gas, 1,100 ethers are stuck in limbo because the payout of this GovernMental pyramid scheme requires the clearing out of the arrays containing creditor addresses and amounts. This array has grown as each creditor added their ethers to this pyramid scheme. The code that clears the arrays in question follows:
creditorAddresses = new address(0); creditorAmounts = new uint(0);
What is the best way to clear large arrays without blowing the gas limit?
