@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?
there's a funding initiative by Square for Bitcoin Core devs, apparently? https://twitter.com/jack/status/1108487927078674432 (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!
Can someone ask this guy to delete his tweet. He's going to make it worse.

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.

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 **
