h/t to @michaelfolkson for compiling some of my "how to run an I2P hidden service with my bitcoin node" tweets into a Bitcoin Stack Exchange Q&A... i'll propose a how-to doc in bitcoin/bitcoin/doc/i2p.md soon


Andrew chow livestreaming coding a height-based activation PR for BIP8 (ST) right now.


Some coverage of proposed Speedy Trial activation method in @jimmysong Bitcoin Tech Talk newsletter. jimmysong.substack.com/p/nfts-

Can you comment on this Speedy Trial feedback gist @jimmysong if you get the chance?


Please promote this far and wide. If you are on Twitter please post on Twitter and any other online forums you use. gist.github.com/michaelfolkson

If you support ST (Speedy Trial) proposal please ACK this so we can log the level of support for this proposal gist.github.com/michaelfolkson

New Taproot activation proposal on the mailing list "Speedy trial". This looks like it could progress in Core. If your top priority is getting Taproot activated, I'd encourage supporting this. If your top priority is LOT=true over getting Taproot activated I can see why you might oppose this. Personally my top priority is Taproot activation. lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipe

If you support a BIP 8 (1 year, LOT=true) UASF please join # on IRC. Fighting through the obfuscation, politics and ego wars is torture but we do need to finalize a timetable that everyone is happy with as soon as is possible. And I'm directing all the noise to other channels to keep # relatively noise free.

added LOT=FALSE or TRUE & EITHER to taprootactivation.com

Just to reiterate in relation to Gab getting hacked, I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities in Mastodon at the moment and based on what I have seen in their code modifications the vulnerabilities they have are the ones they themselves introduced (along with never porting security patches from us)

I2P network support was just merged into Bitcoin Core for the upcoming v22 release, adding a second privacy network available to users / nodes (please test it and report any issues). 🥳


As it stands, I will be running the LOT=True alternative release.
RT @bergealex4
Moving forward!

Initial LOT=True kick off meeting set for tomorrow (Tuesday) 19:00 UTC on Freenode # IRC channel

the documentation for setting up authentication for Tor V3 onion services could use some improvement

i managed to figure it out but had to use a some python snippet from a gist, and manually created various extra directories and files, i could understand if many users run into trouble


At Wednesday's Bitcoin Core review club, we'll continue our review of the Python implementation of Minisketch.
