Grab your scuba gear (or at least a big mug of coffee!) because in Episode 25, Adam Gibson (@waxwing ) is taking us on a deep dive into how UTXOs work and using that knowledge for advancing fungibility and privacy in Bitcoin.

@Rejekts @bitcoinshirt @bottomshelfbtc I would claim the reverse. Paying tax is what prevent people from selling BTC. :P

@vortex joined me in Episode 28 to talk about his new channel, Programming with Bitcoin (w @NicolasDorier) and non-traditional education. https://bottomshelfbitcoin/28

@bottomshelfbtc @lopp on the topic of SWATting - I've been happy using usglobalmail.com . Super low-tech web site and not cheap, but they're based in Houston for all you Texas bitcoiners and you can pickup your mail in person, have it scanned or remailed to your home.

Recommend it for expats too.

In Episode 27 Jameson @lopp joins me to talk about Casa, SWATting, OpSec and physical attacks on Bitcoiners. bottomshelfbitcoin.com/jameson

Episode 26 is up, with Dhruv Bansal of Unchained Capital on using Bitcoin for asset-backed lending.

Morning mastodon fam. Any suggestions on a guest for explaining the difference between ECDSA and Schnorr and potential advantages/disadvantages of moving to Schnorr?

I'd rather Ca$h give us access to the x/y/zpub and allow auto-selling of BTC. Then we'd have a real BTC<-->fiat solution for @BTCPayServer , eh @NicolasDorier @rockstardev ?

Cash app added scheduled transfers from bank to Ca$h. All they need now is scheduled BTC purchasing. very quickly making Conbase obsolete.

You know you've been neglecting twitter for Mastodon when. πŸ˜†

has anybody found a good ifttt applet that will repost to twitter without putting a link to mastodon on every single tweet?

Okay look guys, mastodon has been fun and all but we need to let @nvk get back to his real work :opendime: :coldcard:

Some people have been asking for list of Bitcoiners to follow. There's lots of excellent people here all with different interests, so I decided to just focus on people who are experts in cryptography (especially the protocols related to Bitcoin), the Bitcoin Protocol, or both. It's currently not many people!

Instead of making a list, I made a beacon account so you can access its follower list via your usual frontend: https://hash.social/users/followsexperts

my wife also sent me *this* because she likes to hurt me. @bitstein pray for me friend 😭

told my wife bitcoiners moved from twitter to mastodon.social and then in the same day moved to bitcoinhackers.org.
