Many months later, after some discussions with .. some people, I see another aspect to this which is actually very useful and I had a total blind spot to it.

The fact that adaptors are deniable/not a proof of knowledge/forgeable (different ways of saying the same thing) means exactly that a person can create an adaptor signature for a secret they *don't* know.

And that means that adaptor-based atomic swaps can be done differently than I previously assumed.

A couple of announcements.

Firstly, we're delighted to host a presentation by @[email protected] of @[email protected] on Wednesday January 15th. Sign up to attend here:

@FreePietje Well I find you ridiculing the lack of my capabilities deeply offensive. Who do I speak to on Mastodon to ensure that people don't comment on my capabilities (or lack of) again? The NYT wouldn't publish the drivel that I am typing so why should FB, YT or Mastodon?

RT @[email protected]

The video of @[email protected] (co-author of Erlay research paper, @[email protected]) presenting @[email protected] on the current state of P2P research in Bitcoin is up.

I've drafted an article for Bitcoin Magazine on Good First Issues for Bitcoin Core. If anyone has any feedback or suggested edits please let me know cc @jon @harding @orionwl

If you don't have the time to check out the Stephan Livera podcast w/ @jon on contributing to Bitcoin Core give the transcript a read. Was a great interview

Published a disclosure for the details of CVE-2017–18350, fixed in Core and Knots v0.15.1
