Most people are very worried that someone is going to break in, identify what the 24 words are and steal their money. That is not the biggest risk. The biggest risk is you lose it, you forget where you put it, you didn’t do the backup in the first place...Andreas
Personalized #Bitcoin addresses 😯
These addresses require generating and testing billions of candidate private keys, until the desired pattern is found.
Fee estimation. 😯
*fastestFee: fastest confirmation, 0 to 1 block.
*halfHourFee: will confirm transactions in half an hour, 3 blocks.
*hourFee: will confirm transactions in one hour, 6 blocks.

If you have a #lightning node...
The most important file to back up is the channel.backup file so you will protect your funds in case of node failure.

They were the first major sites to incorporate #Bitcoin:
In late 2012 the blogging site WordPress announced it would begin accepting Bitcoin payments.
In early 2013 the site Reddit also announced that they were accepting Bitcoin.
In 2008 someone named Satoshi Nakamoto posted on a cryptography mailing list a proposal containing a link to a white paper outlining a new Internet payment system, describing a peer-to-peer proof-of-work network protocol and public key cryptography.
"𝘐'𝘷𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯 𝘢 𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘤 𝘤𝘢𝘴𝘩 𝘴𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵'𝘴 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘱𝘦𝘦𝘳-𝘵𝘰-𝘱𝘦𝘦𝘳, 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘯𝘰 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘳𝘥 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘺."
Satoshi's white paper described a protocol that uses peer-to-peer networking, proof of work and public key cryptography. For years computer experts experimented with these technologies to create digital money and Satoshi discovered a way to do it that had not been done before by creating #Bitcoin.

#Bitcoin in action, miners receiving new transactions and creating new blocks approximately every ten minutes, with approximately 278,386 transactions per day, mempool size 112 MB (82 blocks), block 663563.
2009, The first design of the #Bitcoin logo was created by satoshi nakamoto with the inscription BC, It was beautiful.
Satoshi Nakamoto was inspired by some important people who created schemes that would later materialize in #Bitcoin, one of them was Wei Dai, computer engineer and cypherpunk who created B-money in 1997, this was a proposal for an "electronic cash system distributed anonymously "
