Just used @meeDamian excellent guide to setup a bitcoin full node on Raspberry Pi 3.
I'm pleased to announce the release of the Bitcoin Extended Public Key Converter. Hopefully this will save other Bitcoin developers a little bit of time while building and testing software. https://jlopp.github.io/xpub-converter/
Beginning of August, I have a Raspberry Pi lying around so I buy a 1TB external HDD and get started on setting up a Bitcoin node. Best advice was to sync on the laptop (took a couple of weeks) and then move the HDD to the Pi. I follow the tutorial from @meeDamian at https://medium.com/@meeDamian/bitcoin-full-node-on-rbp3-revised-88bb7c8ef1d1
We need #TheBox
We need wallets that connect to own Full Node
We need payment processors self-hosted on own HW
We need to eliminate 3rd-party security holes
We need it easy, stable, reliable and offering great UX
Maybe @Mastodon could borrow the Identity system from Tox.chat, they managed to make it super easy to make identity based on pub/priv keys.
@meeDamian Yes! To recover the block you can use ffmpeg -i block_img.png -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb24 rawblock.dat
@402PaymentRequired love your handle! :D
Some good bitcoiners to follow in order to get you started on Mastodon
Glad to be here with all of you

A few reasons to move from twitter to the fediverse:
- Non-manipulated feed
- No promoted tweets
- You are not the product
- You can choose a community that works for you or create one
- Less censorship, depending on the community
- No surveillance with respect to delivering you to advertisers
- No sudden/continual API policy changes to protect a profit stream
- Open source transparency, auditability, forkability, improvability
TIL "The mastodon.social instance run by the main developer of the software, and many of the other first-established instances, are registered in France. Early surveys of the users indicated that French people were the majority. Nonetheless, English quickly became the main language used for talking on the network, even by the French."
