am I suspended from Twitter again or are they just having issues...

Instance admins will always have to moderate their users to maintain healthy relationships with other instances. If enough of your users say unpopular things, your instance might get banned by others. For me the freedom to say whatever I want without worrying about getting silenced/banned by instance politics of the day is important enough for me to eventually run my own instance.Gab isn't really my jam,since it's mostly red politics which isn't that interesting to me. Distribute all the things!

admins tone policing me to "be nice or else" to a developer who hardcodes censorship into their app can f right off. nothing makes me livid more than this.

all I said was "maybe you should try not hardcoding censorship into your app and it might get better reviews" apparently this is harrassment. stay away from

At least I know bitcoiners actually care about free speech. All it takes is one asshole admin though. Running my own node is up next once the software isn't terrible.

Just did my first in-person trade where I signed a Bitcoin tx at home and sent it to my phone. I then connected to my full node over zerotier, my full node is connected to the network via Tor.

I was able to use @samourai_official to broadcast the transaction to my full node during the trade, worked flawlessly. Bonus that my full node watches my trezor accounts, and sends me an encrypted email on wallet activity, so I could see that it worked right away.

That was cool.

Please, use anything else than Medium to blog about things.

Number theory is full of stuff like this, as the old saying goes "the only branch of mathematics where you can explain the problem to a 8 year old child but the greatest mathematician on earth can't solve it" (or something like that)

At the start of the month I set out to build a lightning network Patreon alternative. After working a few weekends and holidays I finally have something working. Can't wait to upend the cartels and gatekeepers.
