Bitcoin solved my hatred for many things. Instead of hate, i can opt out of taxes, opt out of this Financial collapse, opt out of banks freezing my fucking accounts, opt out of my wife stealing half my money if she leaves me, opt out of estate/death tax, opt out of lawyers and Financial planners! Just opt out now!
Unlike many braggadocious maximalists, I'm not 100% confident bitcoin will succeed. I live a mostly normie life. I stack sats when I can, but never more than I can stand to loose if it goes to zero tomorrow. I do it partly in the hope of a better world and partly as a hedge against money printer go brrrrrrr.
We're still early. None of my IRL friends are remotely interested in bitcoin. I have stickers on my laptop and most of the time I wear a bitcoin cap. In the past 5 years, I've met six people who' heard of bitcoin--3 shitcoiners, 2 blockchain not bitcoin boomers, and one who bought a single bitcoin on coinbase after watching some mainstream news show.
I have a lightning node that currently has no open channels. Is there a strategy I should be using to open channels? Should I find a shop on 1 ML that I think I’ll be likely to business with? Should I find a node like me that doesn’t have a channel open and open a channel with it? Should I open one with tippin.me?

What a bad (frankly, embarrassing) day for constitutional and fiscal conservatism. The Senate confirms Bill Barr as attorney general, congressional leaders conspire to advance a $333 billion wasteful spending bill, and @[email protected] plans to declare an emergency for a non-emergency. 🤦♂️
@402PaymentRequired I’ve been watching your Wasabi videos. Suppose someone has coinbase coins on a Ledger Nano S. They send those coins to Wasabi for anonymizing. Is generating a new wallet with the ledger sufficient to store the Wasabi coins, or does the ledger need reset or is an entirely new hardware wallet needed to ensure anonymity?
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.
