We don’t need all the states to do this, just enough that it thwarts those that do want passports to back TF off.

@Full_node @NunyaBidness Good news for Americans is that they have some places to move to unlike us Canadians.

@verretor @NunyaBidness May just have to exit Canada. If enough people begin to move to where they are treated well they will have to back off. I know this isn’t feasible for most but it’s an option and a strong one. Hacking the passport is an option but it’s still bending a knee.

@Full_node @NunyaBidness May JUST have to exit Canada. Like I can JUST move to another country. I'd be gone if I could.

@verretor @NunyaBidness The shackles are your own. If the need arises you will do it. I say "just" but agree its not easy to just leave your home/family/etc.

@Full_node @NunyaBidness IT'S NOT EASY TO GET A VISA IN ANOTHER COUNTRY. I HAD A WORK VISA IN NEW ZEALAND AND I WASN'T ALLOWED TO HAVE A FULL TIME JOB. HOW DO YOU JUST GET A VISA? TELL ME!

@verretor @Full_node @NunyaBidness I'm looking into applying for permanent residency status in Mexico. The requirements are financial, presently being able to demonstrate that you have 20,000 days equivalent of the minimum wage in Mexico via bank statements going back 12 months (at present that's about $120k USD). There is no "physical presence" test required to maintain the residency; under current Mexican law, once you have it, you have it. You can apply without even visiting the country.

@Aurelius_17_6_313 @verretor @Full_node @NunyaBidness You could get a crypto sophisticated lawyer to look at an XPUB and then write an affidavit saying you have over $200k (or whatever) in assets. Then get that apostled.

@Aurelius_17_6_313 @CalebCarr @verretor @NunyaBidness XPUB is a master public key generated by each wallet. With this key you can generate every single receiving address the wallet is capable of creating (all 2 billion of them). It's good for services that you want a new address for each transaction however its best to keep this private. Anyone with your XPUB can't steal your funds but they will know your entire BTC balance by checking one address.

@Aurelius_17_6_313 @CalebCarr @verretor @NunyaBidness Or, your Peter Mccormack, top Bitcoin podcaster in Europe and have no idea what a very basic wallet feature is.

@Full_node @CalebCarr @verretor @NunyaBidness Curses, you've found me! 😋

Ok, I've just never heard the term before, but I realize what it is now. My sometimes lawyer could possibly help me with this, his specialty is contract law.

@Aurelius_17_6_313 @CalebCarr @verretor @NunyaBidness Its one of those badly named wallet features. Not sure what a better name would be.

@Aurelius_17_6_313 @Full_node @verretor @NunyaBidness I think if you explain it to your lawyer he will get it. The biggest question is if the consulate will take a lawyers swirn testimony. That I don’t know. And these situations seem to be up to a lot of bureaucratic randomness.

@CalebCarr @Full_node @verretor @NunyaBidness I meet their current standards without it, but I think it would be worthwhile to pay my lawyer to set this up for me. Even if they choose not to count it, it would at least show the consular officer that I have far more resources at my disposal than they're looking for, and it would contribute a little more toward normalizing Bitcoin in day-to-day life.

@Full_node @Aurelius_17_6_313 @verretor @NunyaBidness Not precisely correct, or xpub isn’t what I mean. In a wallets you can create accounts, and you can use the xpub of a sub account. And the reason I mentioned a lawyer is client confidentiality and a lawyer will sign an NDA... and you dan fo it where lawyer never has xpub.

@Full_node @Aurelius_17_6_313 @verretor @NunyaBidness EG: show up at lawyers office. Show them the balance with xpub on your hardware but don’t actually give them the xpub.
