@cryptonomicon I was just installing Tor on a VPN and I think I got the same error you did. It seems to be an unresponsive default gpg server, a fix was to just point to a different keyserver :)

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. 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 medium.com/@meeDamian/bitcoin-

The first step (putting our face 🐘 on it) to our RBP LN PoS is complete, everything else happens on the 24th Aug event.

We need

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

@pizzamarinara Obviously building cool stuff/writing articles/guides/etc/etc in the meantime and publishing it doesn't hurt :).


1. Contribute to related open source projects,
2. Find companies you want to work with,
3. Understand what they try to do,
4. Talk to them a lot, and try to bring value (contributions, finding bugs, testing, writing tests),
5. Get recognised,
6. Or tell them whan you're looking for, they might hire you right away or you might be the first person they think about once they need to hire,
