@paul_btc You can't port the identity across instances, you can only port your following list(not your followers but the people you follow), you can also set a redirect to your new identity from your old.

This week's episode of RHR on @TFTC21 is now out: anchor.fm/tales-from-the-crypt

Uncensored, uncut, and slightly belligerent. @martybent & I call it like we see it.

Also available in your favorite podcast app by searching for 'tales from the crypt' and clicking that subscribe button.

I can't believe the 'asics are bad' meme still has any legs.

Shortsighted narrow minded thinking at its finest.

This week's episode of Rabbit Hole Recap is now available: anchor.fm/tales-from-the-crypt

Uncut & Uncensored. Just me, you, and @martybent sifting through this wild week of bitcoin.

Topics:
-Emerging Market currency crises
-Iran give Bitcoin mining the go-ahead
-Ethereum FOMC meeting
-Infura centralization
-ShapeShift
-Casa's new plug and play all-in-one Bitcoin full node + Lightning node
-Discussions of a new Bitcoin testnet

(Available on all major podcast apps by searching 'tales from the crypt')

Watching eth stakeholders make every mistake bitcoiners have intentionally avoided is gold.

Provides clear context re: the value prop of bitcoin compared to altcoins. Now we have a perfect case study to point to when questioned whether bitcoin's current path forward is the best option:

-Move slow, and conservative.
-Prioritize censorship resistance and robustness.
-Scale using layers.
-Avoid hard forks at all cost.
-Don't fuck with supply schedule.
-Keep it simple, stupid.

Excited to announce a new weekly pod w/ @martybent. Plan is to record tuesdays and drop them on wednesdays.

It is complementary to his outstanding TFTC21 interviews and will live in the same feed. Basically a week-in-review style show w/ whiskey. Feedback is appreciated.

The 7x bump in hash rate since last year doesn't get enough attention. Look at that chart. Insane.

2,127 bitcoiners have posted 19,435 times on this instance alone.

That's not including the bitcoiners running their own instances or using a different instance.

Pretty impressive Mastodon adoption in such a short time period. 👌

@chasevasic oh, same reason as you. Reduces mining centralization. Specifically bitmain has made some questionable anti-bitcoin moves.

There are a bunch of new well funded competitors entering the market. Hopefully bitmain will be the last entity to control 50%+ of hash rate. As mining hardware begins to plateau, incentives should benefit smaller more nimble mining ops.

Also looking forward to betterhash which should reduce the influence/control of major pool operators.

@chasevasic

We've only seen their Q1 numbers, Q2 was most likely very bad for them.

-Large inventory of aging mining equipment
-Large bag of bitcoin cash they can't sell
-Continued bear market hurts prices of both
-Increasing competition in mining space
-IPO seems like a desperation move

Bitmain appears to be vulnerable, overexposed, and short on cash.

This is great news for bitcoin.

Soup kitchen initiative in Venezuela accepting bitcoin donations. They support lightning as well. 👌
