Pinned toot

I'm seeing new faces in the little crypto-corner @nvk has so graciously carved out for us, so to introduce myself:
I'm Jeremy, I have a little BTC hackerspace/Meetup venue/workshop on HWY 101 in Seaside, OR.
I am currently reading Progress and Poverty and the Federalist Papers.
I dig full nodes, satellites, :coldcard: :opendime: lightning, mast, schnorr, samourai, gotenna, trezor, taproot/graftroot, btcpay server, and now, mastodon.
Nice to meet you all!

@jeremy [Total Bitcoin] TotalBitcoin #129: Jim Epstein- Cypherpunks write Code, Cryptography, Bitcoin & Freedom

It was only a tiny amount, and I used fake info and joined utxo's (apparently before they figured out they need to track that sort of thing), but the leak and subsequent response was still upsetting.

BTW, I regret posting positive things about BlockFi when they first got started. I think I was their first non-internal loan and things went smoothly, but after seeing how they've responded to privacy concerns, I wish I had not used or recommended their service. Mea Culpa.

Question for you :

What do you like to add to your .conf? Any good guides out there that cover different/unique use cases?

I am totally indifferent to people's "crypto origin stories." I don't care about how early you were to bitcoin or cryptocurrency; I care about the quality of your thought!

There are lots of wrong & early people, and lots of nuanced and late people. Some of the best Bitcoin thinkers are totally new to the protocol.

Given that people asked me whether the London Bitcoin Devs meetup had video, I guess it might be worth advertising that there's already three talks up on youtube (thanks to @michaelfolkson) :

Chris Belcher on Joinmarket (the first one)
Me on schnorr sigs and their basis in ZKP ideas (second)
John Light on bitseed and bitcoin full nodes (third)

John Newbery's will be next.

Got the blue trim going...

Need to do something to make the sign pop a little more. Blue border? I'm not sure yet... Gotta sleep on it.

I still think I need some plants, maybe...

The bottom is tough. It will be over soon, but your reputation will live on...

@NicolasDorier it's independent of any vendor: the specification of RISC-V is free and open source, and so are some of the Verilog implementations.
(Also the current chips don't do any of the speculation magic that say, Intel does, which is good for security.)
anyhow for a full overview of the motivations see the introduction in chapter 1 of

Went with electric yellow so bright you can see it from the Blockstream Satellite!

Home timelines should be all caught up now. Our traffic is averaging 400 req/s with occasional spikes to 1,200 req/s.

@Dennis this is getting so good. Also they're calling their smart contract layer "Wormhole" 😂
