It's interesting to look at the scenario "ECDLP is broken (via QC or whatever), how does that affect BIP32".

Basically: any xpub shared is complete and total break of your wallet, realistically. Example: you share xpub of account; whether derivation is hardened (usual for accounts) or not, all child private keys are leaked, i.e. every single future and past private key for your addresses in that account. You don't even need to have spent, first.

Otoh if xpub is never shared, (1/n)

Sometimes I just want to shake people and say:

HEY! While you've been distracted by orange Hitler and Kung Flu, your life savings is evaporating, your livelihood is in serious jeopardy, and everything you want to better your life is increasing about 15-20% a year with no end in sight while your salary increases ~5% if you're lucky.


I say bring it on motherfuckers. We'll break swift and clean from this dying rabid of a system

Unpopular opinion: This new co-ordinated censorship wave is good. The harder they push the faster it breaks and higher the stakes, higher the incentive to build alternatives and we can grind their asses and move on to the bitcoin standard
