unpopular opinion: Fees on the network give miners incentive to stay on the chain. Hodling does nothing to secure your chain.

Is it better to engage scammers or is it better to ignore them completely?

#249976 (~21.5 mlnth tx), OP_RETURN interpretation was off. I assumed the presence of an OP_RETURN meant 'unconditionally unspendable', but e.g. "OP_IF OP_RETURN OP_ENDIF" would be spendable by providing 'false' as sigScript.

Why are all Bitcoin wallet's fee estimations so bad?

Aside from the ones that have to overcompensate because they don't do rbf or cpfp, what's the reason for doing crappy fee estimation?

if all blocks were big blocks how big would a block have to be to be a big block

chronological timelines are a feature now. :/

Idea: timelocked 1 of x multisig for passing on your BTC to your loved ones.

2 downsides:

you would have to wait until the timelock expires if they happen to die unexpectedly.

If you're still alive and if the timelock is close to expiring, you have to reset it.

Would it be better to have multiple implementations or have a single implementation?

Imo single implementation is better for consensus but I would love to know you guy's thoughts.
