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!

It looks like liquidity on Wasabi Wallet CoinJoins is slowly picking up.

If you don't know about this, please research. Follow these steps and get on with it:

* (!!!) @jeremy includes a missing step on github instructions

* You may also have issues if your Tor version is less than 3.2.2

$ tor --version

If you do, uninstall tor:

$ sudo apt-get remove tor

And follow these instructions (debian/ubuntu).

😓😓😓 ... just trying to bring people in

so far, there is Lopp's generator:
But really looking for thoughts on advanced networking options, setting up small networks of local peers, etc

Question for you :

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

And instead of blaming the hunter who put the damn blade in the ice,
For the wolf,
What happens is the wolf gets the blame, gets the blame for trying to live,
That's what happens in our community,
You shouldn't blame the trader, the victim,
You should blame the scammer, fraud is the enemy,
It was the enemy when it first came to light,
And snatched up the first listings alongside Bitcoin,
Fraud is the enemy today,
And that's the thing that we have to understand.

Apologies to Dead Prez

Whales have gold, why can't I have gold?
They think they can get a house,
Whales have a house, why can't I have a house?
And they actually think that shitcoins are bringing resources to them,
But they're killing themsleves just like the wolf was licking the blade,
And they're slowly dying without knowing it.
That's what's happening to the community, you with me on that?
That's exactly, precisely what happens to the community,

And he thinks he's really having a good thing,
And he drinks and he licks and he licks,
And of course he is drinking his own blood and he kills himself,
That's what the scammers did to our community with shitcoins,
You have these young people out there who think they are getting something,
That they're gonna make a living with,
They're getting something they can buy a car with,
Like the whales have cars, why can't I have a car?
They think they're getting a piece of gold,

The Wolf

I'm not a hunter but I am told,
That in places like in the arctic,
Where indigenous people sometimes might hunt a wolf,
They'll take a double edged blade,
And they'll put blood on the blade,
And they'll melt the ice and stick the handle in the ice,
So that only the blade is protruding,
And that a wolf will smell the blood and want to eat,
And it will come and lick the blade trying to eat,
And what happens is when the wolf licks the blade,
Of course, he cuts his tongue, and he bleeds,

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.

Any 2nd amendment supporters here? I'm trying help Cody Wilson raise money for the lawsuits against Defcad.

Roger Ver is matching BCH donations and bitcoin .com is a partner.

I brought up the BCash issue with Cody on Twitter and we had this exchange:

Please consider donating some bitcoin. Defcad uses BTCPay Server instead of Coinbase or BitPay.

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!
