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.

Some early Bitcoiners got into Bitcoin for perverse or self serving reasons or because they completely misunderstood the protocol. Being early should confer no automatic credibility

“Rich people want your ₿itcoin. Don't give it to them.” -@dergigi

"Do not try and trade the corn. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth."

"What truth?"

"There is no sell."

"There is no sell?"

"Then you'll see, that it is not the market that bends, it is only yourself."

@orionwl @mattodell @nvk also, that the server holds DMs is presumably orthogonal to this. E2E encryption would be nice, requiring key infrastructure though. I treat DMs here as quasi-public, but I also do that for other platforms.

Welcome new influx of Twitter exodus.

This is a free speech safe-space, keep it legal and non-spammy and we should all survive.

There is no privacy here, this software was not designed with that in mind, govern yourself accordingly. Note, running this stock & best effort basis.


PS: keep your corn safe

On this day in 2009, Hal Finney became the first person to receive a Bitcoin transaction, as Satoshi sent him 10 BTC in block 170

The transaction is visble here on Blockstream's explorer:

That day, he also posted one of the most famous Bitcoin tweets, confirming that he was 'Running bitcoin'

Rest in peace, Hal ✌️
