The Bitcoin 5th column is real, and growing. Like deep cover Soviet moles but loyal to the ideals of a global individualist movement, not a socialist one.
We collect a regular paycheck, but watch the growing value of Bitcoin with more than idle interest. We might fit in as loyal corporate workers, but are secretly working to overthrow the economic system that allows the bourgeois management class to rule. Our manifestos come from Tim May and Eric Hughes. Builders of the world, unite!
@nolim1t Curious to learn more about how you got a tenant paying in BTC/LN . Anything else you can share?
Today I created a regtest bitcoind P2TR descriptor based wallet and spent from it to a legacy wallet. The gist is below for anyone who want's to try it. I built a `bitcoind` docker image and used `bdk-cli` to generate my test xprv but the gist should also work if you build your own `bitcoind` and `bitcoin-cli` as long as you're on the bitcoin v22.0rc2 tag:
This #femtostar system could be a great fit for off grid #bitcoin nodes. I appreciate that they're planning to use a centrally managed satellite access token and NOT creating a new (pointless) cyrpto currency. Would love to see a secondary market develop where you could buy these tokens with #btc.
In good news today, my bechmarks finally finished: @pwuille's updates to libsecp256k1 look to have sped up Bitcoin Core's validation by roughly 7%.

The business owner of Tin Horn Flats in Burbank gets it: “This has never been about safety or the public. It's never been about that. This whole thing is about fear and control.”
I've been to this establishment (after their utilities were cut-off) and every customer and staff there were perfectly capable of making their own decisions about eating and drinking or working there.
Another great take from Mises Inst. Rather than trying to quantify all the ways the fiat monetary system consume energy St.Onge digs into the incredible waste caused only by fiat induced recessions.
This @stephanlivera podcast with @Diverter_NoKYC is a great listen 👏

Before WWI, you could travel wherever whenever. Passports were a "temporary" war measure.
The sad thing is by committing fraud - and let's be 100% clear, MobileCoin's advertising is already fraud - they're putting Signal itself at risk.
It'll be intersting to find out just how tightly linked MobileCoin is legally to Signal itself.
lololol They're actually rolling out Intel SGX coin.
"MobileCoin is a payment network with no central authority."
That is a lie. Intel is a central authority if you rely on SGX.
