Here's the data, the science everyone should talk about. Our governments have many questions to answer
Poolin found a mining machine firmware that lacks the ability to signal, this is the reason why we have not fully signaled through ALL our nodes.
Poolin tech team is assisting the firmware team right now to get that firmware upgraded - thanks.
Unlikely to get funding from normal channels after Taproot activation (apparently I lost "social capital" and was a "troublemaker") but if you appreciate my efforts I have a GitHub sponsors page and a Bitcoin address on my GitHub profile. It was always going to be messy, I was just prepared to roll my sleeves up and take flak when others weren't. https://github.com/michaelfolkson
I am happy to come and publically speak at ANY event anywhere in the world, BUT your country MUST allow me to enter with NO #Covid1984 Test & NO mandatory Quarantine & masks at your event MUST be 'optional'.

Imagine a future with an organization that:
- Oversees every transaction you make
- Controls where and how you can spend your money
- Can just take your money and use it as it wish
That’s the future central bankers plan, and you only have one alternative. #Bitcoin
After about 24h it looks to me like v3 onions are back up. We live to fight another day, albeit on *very* borrowed time.
Somehow world feels like it's going crazy all of a sudden. American political madness ratcheted up big time, Tor getting nuked, Bitcoin market going insane both directions, and our cozy little Mastodon forum blowing up as well :)
Due to an implementation bug, v3 onion services were experiencing instability earlier today.
A bug fix is on the way.
Everything else in Tor works fine even when the consensus is a few hours old, and v3 onion services should too.

@mattodell At least this time there is a reason to be a little concerned. Internet infrastructure being attacked by the tech giants with support of next US administration.
Gonna start posting here b4 I post anywhere else..
This was a fucking FIRE discussion with @giacomozucco
Enjoy ladies & gents.
Looks like the Tor consensus is broken at this moment. Unclear why. It'll take awhile for the network to fail. But if it stays broken it eventually will as the consensus becomes invalid.
Reminder: Tor is centralized. Knocking out a half dozen directory authorities is enough to shut it down.
