How about what I posted on twitter: Political thoughts:
- Left: YOU have to pay for what I think is fair

Mastodon cannot be securely used with Tor since it cannot run as a native hidden service. If you do not use mastodon with a hosted vpn (such as mullvad) then both the server and @nvk can log your IP address. The server is a honeypot of personal info on bitcoiners including DMs. Be aware!
European exchanges starting KYC 2.0:
They want users to do a "address verification" within the next 24 hours.
"This means that next time you want to withdraw your cryptocurrency to an external wallet, for example, a Ledger, Trezor or exchange, you will have to verify you have control over that wallet."
How it works?
- Send a small amount from the wallet Coinmerce.
- Upload a screenshot showing the public address and website URL of your wallet.
- Sign a message using your private key.

The intrinsic value of Bitcoin are the Plebs

Even if BTC would crash to 0 (yeah right, GL with that), it changed my life for the better. Different philosophy and found people with same mindset... Thanks y'all, you are super! 🤗 👊
