- Mastodon is a federated and open version of twitter. You can use choose between multiple different competing public and private servers called instances. You can also run and use your own instance which is best practice from a trust perspective. Users can interact and 'follow' across instances.
- DMs are not encrypted so instance admins can read them.
- The bitcoinhackers instance is run by @nvk who we trust to keep it up, protect our privacy, and to not censor us.

In this ep Brady reads a Twitter thread by Eric Wall that is intended to serve as a reminder to all when the ICO idiocy returns. And the host of @TheCryptoconomy podcast joins to talk about the thread, ICOs, shitcoins and bitcoin education.
Two things I think underappreciated about Bitcoin scaling in the near future: (1) Schnorr signature aggregation is a huge deal because what's vastly more important than the size of a block is *how many signatures a full node needs to verify per second*, and aggregation reduces it dramatically, (2) sig aggregation is a non-trivial endeavour, to say the least - it's *much* harder than just implementing a Schnorr signature (which has benefits on its own, to be clear).
@nic yes, profitable, self-sustainable, world class bitcoin education. I'd love to chat with you about it. You interested?
@nic It doesn't surprise me that Roger is doing this. He is the AnCap Bernie Sanders so he needs to throw us a bone once in a while to let us know how down he is with the cause.
Overall a good thing for sure, though I no longer think Roger is misguided; he's a sociopath and understands what gets anarchists on his side.
I got a little ranty in this one... https://citizenbitcoin.world/why-bitcoin-is-different-and-whats-up-with-bitmain
🚨Altcoin prices tumble as bitcoin price holds strong at the 6,000 USD per BTC and the 100 billion USD market cap level. Why is bitcoin different than all the rest? Bitmain Pre-IPO documents paint a picture of trouble for the mightiest bitcoin mining company. What's up? All in the latest pod.
. @TheCryptoconomy podcast is doing a great service for the bitcoin community as a leader in bitcoin education. This is an absolute must listen for any student of bitcoin. If you're just getting started, strap those headphones on and enjoy a great bitcoin journey from episode one.

@BitcoinBelle Problem is, #craigwright is a con-man. I'm sure he had all kinds of self-substantiated lies to draw people in. The one thing that really bothers me is how he plans to use #nChain to "Cash Out" by #patent trolling. If nothing else, this shows how much of a fraud he is. Guess who is in the center of the current #bcash drama over the November #fork? Yep, our boy Craig. He can go straight to hell, in my opinion. #faketoshi #scammers #rogerver
