Bitcoin is a relentless teacher.

I did my best to gather some of the best books, articles, podcasts, and other resources that were helpful to me.

I wrote a book on Bitcoin. You can read it online for free. You can also buy it. Or you can listen to it.

Surveillance renders all other freedoms useless.

@dave @adam regarding an index of Lightning Addresses: a lot of users are putting their lightning addresses prefixed with a ⚡ in their profiles, e.g. ⚡[email protected]

Alby and ZBD support this already. There is also a meta tag for HTML: github.com/BitcoinAndLightning

Both could be crawled and indexed.

python-bitcointx v1.1.3 is released, includes spending to taproot.
We'll be able to issue a new release of Joinmarket (0.9.5) shortly, probably end of this week.

@dave I think we found a bug in the podcast index.

Not sure what repository is the right one to create the issue, so I'll outline it here.

We updated the pubkey of John from 02a9cd... to 02aad... - the pubkey was correctly updated on the podcast level, but not on the episode level.

More than 24h later it's still wrong, so it doesn't seem to be a simple caching issue.

Here is the feed: github.com/closing-the-loop/cl

It's also not just an UI issue. Fountain and Breez get the wrong info too.

Looks like more progress on a web UI frontend for JM using the RPC backend is being made here:

github.com/joinmarket-webui/jm

Those that can help, please do :)

@dave are there any tools already to parse boostagrams from the command line?

I'd love to parse them on my node and display them for each episode.

1/ Everyone knows that time is money. In the digital realm, however, money is also intricately related to time. It has to be.

12/ Thanks to everyone who helped with this piece: @Croesus_BTC, @FriarHass, @citizenbitcoin, @skwp, @joernroeder, @SwanBitcoin - and thanks to all my supporters. I wouldn't be able to do this without you.

11/ I hope you have enjoyed this time-centered view on Bitcoin. The next time someone asks what Bitcoin is, simply answer: "It is time."

Show thread

10/ By creating a novel definition of time, Satoshi managed to solve an otherwise intractable coordination problem in our relativistic universe: agreeing on the order of things on a global scale.

Show thread

9/ The difficulty adjustment makes sure that Bitcoin's time and our time stay in sync. It is the probabilistic metronome that orchestrates the intricate dance of the network.

Show thread

8/ This intricate dance of coordination creates a moment in time that every node can verify for itself. It can trust, with a very high probability, that this is what actually happened in the past.

Show thread

7/ Bitcoin uses SHA-256 and digital signatures as its causal building blocks and the ever-changing interactions of its peers, as well as the randomness of PoW as its source of entropy.
