Thank you for the Canadian calculators, @Coinkite . I will promptly use them to... calculate things.

@dilutionproof Does signalling for Taproot require mining nodes to be taken offline, have the software updated, and then brought back online?

@nvk I love the part about how "...agencies may not be able to access the hardware cryptowallet. This may ... prevent the forfeiture and recovery of these assets in line with established federal guidelines" The problem being that there's nothing preventing law enforcement from breaching the federal guidelines, as proven by cases of money being taken without cause from individuals. Nor is there anything to prevent the established guidelines from changing at any moment.

Since I started maintaining a list of BTC nodes running as Tor onion services (collecting the data using my own node), I've noticed a steady increase in the number of v3 nodes :) Currently, the list consists of 545 nodes: 464 v2 nodes and 81 v3 nodes. Maybe v3 will break 100 soon.

@btc Interesting, but why is there a need to have content creators paid with yet another shit-coin? It would require yet another unnecessary illiquid marketplace to convert proceeds into money. I don't think the excuse that "Bitcoin Lightning is experimental" holds up anymore.

Given the abundant theft that keeps happening within those so-called DeFi projects due to their ironic centralized control, I'm grateful for the thoughtfulness that went into the @Bisq DAO. It may not be apparent in the sensational media, but I believe that the Bitcoin ecosystem has the better toys.

@CryptoTweetie As a bitcoin-only user, I appreciate that @Coinkite anr @nvk want to keep their talents focused on a product that does one thing well — secure my bitcoin. I don’t want their research+dev efforts, budget, and talent spread thin supporting the shifting winds of shitcoin trading.

@Coldcard It is questions like this which make me wish the industry had adopted the phrase "Bitcoin keychain" instead of "Bitcoin wallet." The concept of a wallet as a means to "store" Bitcoin leads people to false conclusions.

Morgan Stanley is only ALLOWING its wealthier clients access to the volatile asset. Does it get any sillier?

is permissionless. If you're not rich, get some bitcoin now and hold your own keys. No need for intermediaries who tell you what you're allowed to do!
