@flexbit hadn't considered it. generally wouldn't consider a wallet on a phone, but I guess for a temporary hop, it would have been okay.

Need help guys, trying to get BTC off of Bisq to Wasabi, but Bisq doesn't support bech32 addresses. I am having to find an intermediary to pass the BTC through so that it can wind up in Wasabi. I would use Exodus, but I am pretty sure they will track my IP address. I think I installed Electrum, but either I am an idiot or those idiots failed to publish how to START Electrum once installed. Any suggestions? someone pointing out how to start electrum may be enough. ty

hey @402PaymentRequired just watched your Bisq video. I could have figured it out easily enough i suppose but it was nice to have something to look at to kinda confirm what I am doing for the first time. tyvm for your efforts!

How do you even describe this? I'm speechless. Up $2,500 (22%) in 1 day, but complete retracement in the last two minutes, followed by ANOTHER $2,000 pump (18%) within the next 3 hours? 27 hours total?

@LibertyRex I am going to look into it myself soon I think...

@TallTim or at least the routing of funds through the network for others...

@TallTim [from that paper] Several activities, when performed using cryptocurrencies or smart
contracts, are certainly regulated ( e.g. accepting and transmitting cryptocurrency on behalf of
others,213 issuing new cryptocurrencies in a public sale with promises of future efforts to create
profits,214 trading cryptocurrency derivatives such as swaps or futures215) and several activities
are simply illegal... Looks to me like, in the opinion of that author, LN is subject to regulation...

@TallTim Perhaps I could just do what everyone else is doing 😜

@TallTim It gives me ammunition, clues, ideas and likely references. I haven't read it all yet. It will help me understand what the "legal industry" is thinking so I can sort of predict what their arguments are going to be. I have spent much time in the past researching legal matters in the laws and court cases themselves. Sometimes, that research starts with stuff I find on the internet.

@TallTim Just saw this posted on Twitter by Antonopolous

@TallTim I am not sure either. Absolute certainty before I spend all this BTC on hardware would be nice 😜

@TallTim I think the question is whether "money" (or its equivalent) is being transmitted, not the nature of the "money" itself. I am just surprised that I am not finding more discussion on the matter. Most discussion is on BTC itself. I don't see much BTC adoption without LN, so I am disappointed that question is not being addresses or at least discussed yet.

Hey gang, been out for a while. Started researching again last night and ran across LN KYC question. I am curious what you guys think. Are LN node operators money transmitters required to have KYC/AML procedures? I am not asking if they can be operated without, or whether it can be stopped, but will they be required legally. I know the future cannot be predicted. I have been searching for hours and don't see enough discussion on the topic. Seems to be a major potential problem.

@Shekelcoin I sure like the Brave browser. It even blocks Youtube ads embedded in videos...

Been super busy these past couple weeks. Sure miss all my hacker friends. Having withdrawals...

@flexbit I agree. Plus, they probably already started, or may even have already completed...

@flexbit Sounds like that is why the price pumped this morning...
