Thunder Badger, mon guide pour installer son propre nœud Bitcoin et Lightning, a désormais son propre repo :
À l'origine un fork des super guides de Stadicus, mais nos versions commencent à diverger sérieusement et cela devenait difficile à maintenir.

On Wednesday June 17th Tim Ruffing will present on BIP-Schnorr and will answer questions on both BIP-Schnorr and his thesis "Cryptography for Bitcoin and Friends". The day before (Tuesday 16th) we'll host a Socratic Seminar to prepare. We'll try Jitsi and fall back to Zoom if there are problems with Jitsi. The link to the Socratic is here: https://www.meetup.com/BitDevsLDN/events/271052488/
J'étais sur que ça allait partir en mème cette photo !
HWI (Hardware Wallet Interface) 1.1.1 is now released. This is a bug fix release for some build-related issues and a PSBT serialization issue.
Someone using #Openstreetmap to advertise for money laundering?
The place is not a school, but was raided in 2018 wrt terrorism.
Arabic translates to "Tara Dutch Money"
How would one proceed from here?
It seems that Wasabi admitting to provide liquidity for CoinJoin was a (heavy) misunderstanding on the writer side.
A bit relieved that nopara's not casually saying "sure, we provide inputs to keep this coinjoins rolling, nothing wrong with that"
Still a reminder that we live in an adversarial environment and can really trust no one
Ok I wasn't very convinced by all the critics Samourai made about Wasabi up to now but this is bad.
tl;dr: Wasabi casually admits that it provides liquidity when there's not enough participants to a round of CoinJoin, which is bad because it means that Wasabi is "Sybiling" its users. It might be more or less serious, depending on the number of inputs it provides to a round, but I guess it's better to assume a lower anon set than the one advertised.
The researchers suggest this simulation of slow-wave sleep may help "prevent neurons from hallucinating the features they're looking for in random noise," Watkins said.
A new blog post on the single-signer ECDSA adaptor mentioned last few days:
This is more than a little interesting.
The Wasabi guys are looking into a variant of this (complicated story, I may write about it later), but here you have the base idea of "keyed verifiable anonymous credentials", basically credentials that work a bit like Chaumian server-issued cash, but with attributes. Underlying crypto (see CMZ13 paper referenced extensively) is actually simple, pedersen (and vector) commitments with simple ZKPs:
If you are using ElectrumX as your Electrum server, time to think about an alternative:
The long-rumoured 8GB Raspberry Pi 4 is now available, priced at just $75.
Raspbian is now Raspberry OS. 64-bit version is available as early beta.
Design for a CoinSwap Implementation for Massively Improving Bitcoin Privacy and Fungibility
Alice sends tx A->B but the coins actually end up in Z. Then when normie Carol sends a tx an analyst must deal with possibility that Carol's coins disappeared too
The Trammps and Rob Zombie, better than both originals, it's catchy as fuck 😂
💥 BAM! 💥
You can now connect your Electrum wallet directly to your Bitcoin full node, with a simple one-click setup!
Powered by the bwt Electrum server, integrated straight into the Electrum wallet as a plugin.
