@nvk The world isn't perfect. Having bitcoinhackers.org is still a huge improvement over Twitter. You don't need to solve every problem perfectly, first try.

Everyone will be so depressed when bitcoin will crash -25% below 100k

Mastodon is great but just don't use it for DMs, there is no end-to-end encryption and @nvk can read everything

Let's hope that at least here Mastodon we don't get invaded by discussions about American politics

Glad to see some activity over here again, hopefully this time we get some critical mass to keep this going

“No private entity can claim monetary power, which is inherent to the sovereignty of nations”

Shit, I just destroyed my Cold Card wallet by forgetting the PIN. I set it up months ago, never put any money on it, now I wanted to start using it but I have no idea what PIN I used

It must be really annoying trying to build a "better Bitcoin", and having to rely mostly on marketing to achieve it. Altcoiners life looks stressful

Each time I receive the Bitcoin Optech Newsletter I feel like another week has passed and somehow I'm getting older

Now that phones have almost become a commodity, advance privacy features may become one of the few things people are willing to pay a premium for

I really like the signet proposal. I'd love to see it integrated into Core, although I'd prefer it without a default signer. For people using this feature I don't think it is a problem to specify a signet identifier parameter in the bitcoin.conf

Does anyone have any paper or document that elaborates on the fact that blockchain analysis are not to be considered reliable?
