I like the topic list and happy to see more Bitcoin not Blockchain conferences being organized.
My student @[email protected] is trying to integrate the Raspiblitz project with the DietPi Linux distribution -- allowing it to run on more powerful devices like Odroid and ROCK64.

Linus Dunkers followed all known tax reporting rules, but got hit with a retroactive reclassification of his trades and a $1M tax bill.

We're excited to announce the launch of the #SatelliteAPI Beta! Pay via testnet #LightningNetwork to globally broadcast data for exciting new use cases! Mainnet support coming soon. Get started building ⚡️+🛰️-powered apps today! https://blockstream.com/2019/01/16/satellite_api_beta_live/
But the real interpretation is that both mixed outputs go to one participant and both change outputs go to the other participant. It breaks the classic assumption that each participant is associated to 1 mixed output and 1 change output.
@samouraidev Yes, very good example; violates UIH1 (which will often be the case), but it's of no consequence, because it doesn't violate UIH2, so it looks like it could be an ordinary payment of 0.07842... ; and unlike my example there isn't some obvious giveaway with a rounded amount.
In practice I think there is basically zero chance that analysts will even *consider* the p2ep possibility. By the time they do it will be increasingly obvious that "chainalysis" is basically broken.

Wow! invoice-less payments are coming to lightning! This unlocks a whole set of possibilities for end user UX. Thank you @[email protected]!! https://twitter.com/Stadicus3000/status/1084010396724408320

After querying on #wizards yesterday, "who are the 64 bit nonce culprits", gmax delivered the goods today (at least as far as I know, this is the actual origin of those bad nonces):
So this PR introduced a "feature" of signature nonces of only 8 bytes instead of 32. The comments do not reflect well on their authors (hope that isn't too mean) ...
the culprit line (you won't find it otherwise!) https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore/commit/ac4d3186bfbb4df2aee4389d1a51e488df08b52a#diff-00b2783d2bee76bedf0b6e41345c3bb3R114
1/2 Russia's most recent debt crisis involved a 30% currency crash in the 2014-16 time frame. I highly recommend checking out Ray Dalio's Big Debt Crises for an account.
Nadia Henninger et al on "biased nonce-sense" - basically with lattice attacks they scanned and found a small number of repeated signatures with weak nonces leading to privkey extraction (almost no money in them, but still) - use RFC6979 wallet devs ...
@waxwing This is similar. #Stowaway P2EP. Back and forth sneakernet protocol via QR or copy/paste. https://blockstream.info/testnet/tx/9d537cf2e901b2e715becd5a9df553c5de12831b971c09a19e2ee557e0c93df9
