Unpopular opinion: bcash is the best thing that happened to Bitcoin

It has been a very bad execution of one of the most dangerous attacks Bitcoin could receive. Thanks to its inevitable failure, now also other better executed internal attacks are very likely to fail, increasing the robustness of Bitcoin

How come C++ programmers are allowed to write function signatures with 200 columns and no line wrap? Do they get a special permit for this because they're so cool? :)

There's a lot of customer culture attitude in Mastodon-the-community, where people treat Gargron and other devs, the instance admins, moderators, etc. like service workers. It's a spoiled, entitled attitude, where "the customer is always right" and it's okay to be abusive or demeaning to people providing a service when they don't give you what you want.

The fediverse isn't a corporate model. When you're rude or demeaning to someone here, you're being abusive to volunteers building a playground

It’s been a long time coming but I have it now!! Can’t wait to try it out 🤩

I want to take an old arcade game and replace the quarter slot with bitcoin lightning payment acceptor. Person walks up to machine, pays 25 satoshi’s to play, machine records public address and score of the player, at the end of the month the machine operator banks half the total satoshi pot and the high score public address receives the other half. Public addresses are then destroyed by machine and the game starts over the next month. Not a change the world idea, just a fun tinker. Where begin?
