@Purism Was looking at your Librem 5 specs and noticed the "Baseband: Gemalto PLS8 [..]". However, there's 5 different "regional" variants of that module, each supporting different LTE bands. Which are you using?

Many guides (even ones intended for cryptocurrency use) skip this.

Friends don't let friends generate insecure keys. Headless raspi setups generate ssh keys on first boot with relatively little entropy.

Don't forget to `dd if=/dev/random of=$raspi_root_mountpoint/var/lib/systemd/random-seed bs=1 count=512` before the first boot.

there's a funding initiative by Square for Bitcoin Core devs, apparently? twitter.com/jack/status/110848 (sorry for birdsite link)—if you're actively involved in Bitcoin Core's development and need this funding, and would like me to write a recommendation for you, let me know!

> “There’s nothing we can do for you” is an aggressive posture, when someone has a legitimate dispute.

Could someone on twitter inform Vlad that he misspelled "dismissive"? Couldn't possibly be intellectual dishonesty.

Decentralized product: "Its very easy to deploy this on amazon cloud!" ... okay, could we consider this a decentralization antipattern of sorts?

This might well be the creepiest #Google page ever: All the purchases a user has ever done. If the user receives a confirmation email for a purchase they made, the user is not notified that Google collected and displays this piece of information in this page. There is no explanation why they are collecting all the purchases in one page, and apparently there is no way to opt out of this or even delete the purchases from the list.


Anyone know of any LN wallet apps published on @fdroidorg ? I can't seem to find any.

Just got in a discussion on slack and realised that it'd really be worth itemising specifically that set of fungibility techniques in Bitcoin that could at least theoretically have as anonymity set the whole blockchain. This is what I came up with, any thoughts?

2. LN **
2. scriptless script swaps **
3. Coinjoin Unlimited (coinjoinxt + dual fund)
4. Pay-to-endpoint style coinjoin
5. Regular 'Coinswap' without scriptless script **

** all need either (1) or Schnorr for goal.

I came up with a single pass O(n) sort algorithm I call StalinSort. You iterate down the list of elements checking if they're in order. Any element which is out of order is eliminated. At the end you have a sorted list.

So the academic behind the 'is bitcoin really untethered' paper that got so popular in the media also runs an anon, demented, anti-bitcoin twitter account. this delegitimizes the entire tether fud cottage industry imo.



"[Eth conf organizers] try to squeeze me into their conferences last minute while bitcoin events look for excuses to reject my talks. And I'm not even an ether dev. I'm just saying there's a big problem here."

i wonder how long it'll take him to realize the big problem is the eth confs trying to piggyback on what's left of the credibility of his name
