I read a hardware wallet help file regarding single-send transactions to convert all legacy UTXOs on the device to a single new segwit or bech32 address? Sounds like a good idea, but I am frozen with fear to do that. 😨

Thoughts on this?

Volatility?

According to the calculations of one popular online Crypto Portfolio site, the value of 19 Bitcoins:
...rose $3,512 in terms of USD over the last 24 hours;
...fell $2,824 USD for the week;
...is $13,720 USD lower this month than last;
...and is up $116,830 USD so far this year.

The value of 19 Bitcoins in terms of BTC, is unchanged.

Better to store wealth in BTC I say.
USD is simply too volatile.

"The world is in desperate need of a metric system for monetary value that cannot be manipulated by bureaucrats. Bitcoin provides this solution."

I must not be the only one looking with some chagrin at the sudden rise in value of their BTC holdings. Many might say it's time to "take some off the table". But there are still just too many penalties awaiting any conversion of Bitcoin into USD. Capital Gains taxes, alerting the IRS to your holdings, and, just why would you buy inflationary US fiat paper with your provably scarce BTC anyway?

Just can't nail down this volatility...
...so Let it Ride.

"TxTenna application allows users to relay Bitcoin transactions over a mesh network in places where there is no Internet... and soon to send and receive data to and from the Blockstream satellite."

This reminds me of going "online" via PC Pursuit, before there was an "internet" or any ISP available, via a 300 baud telephone modem.

Does anybody here use TxTenna? Is there any network out there to mesh with?

I guess we've only just begun ... still.

That can't be good, can it?

Marty shines a bright light on the recent BTC price spike:

"The sleeping beast was suddenly awoken by a face ripping price increase that came out of nowhere and gored the side of the unsuspecting $BTC bears. "

"Bitmain is going to go down in the annals of Bitcoin history as a company with an immeasurable amount of potential to dominate that destroyed itself with ego and hubris. Bitcoin is a cruel, unforgiving bitch, and if you think throwing a bunch of money and hash power at her will force her to change, she and the market will swat you down like a fly. "
