@bitcoindevkit I'd call this one a "user appreciation" release 🙏 , both new features were added to support devs building on @bitcoindevkit.

The new `get_psbt_input()` will help the folks working on coinjoin and similar mixing projects. While `get_address` changes were inspired by the btctipserver project @0xvaccaro is working on.

@icedquinn The owners son, who manages the bar was arrested three times, most recently for removing the sandbags the city used to try to stop folks from entering.

But why is the city spending all these resources against a business owner who is just serving the community, rather than prosecuting crimes with actual victims ?

The business owner of Tin Horn Flats in Burbank gets it: “This has never been about safety or the public. It's never been about that. This whole thing is about fear and control.”

I've been to this establishment (after their utilities were cut-off) and every customer and staff there were perfectly capable of making their own decisions about eating and drinking or working there.

Another great take from Mises Inst. Rather than trying to quantify all the ways the fiat monetary system consume energy St.Onge digs into the incredible waste caused only by fiat induced recessions.

Yak shaving can actually be a pretty effective way to get a lot done. You don't get any one thing done *fast* but you end up improving a lot of things at once...

@furgar I’d prefer hypocritical marxists like this if they just siphon the money from gullible SJWs and not spend it as intended to burn down my neighborhood... but sadly I suspect they get enough to do both

For this week's episode of "The Van Wirdum Sjorsnado," @AaronvanW and @provoost discussed the Erlay protocol and how it could reduce the bandwidth required to run a Bitcoin node.


@mystik yup, and why we need to help new hodlers understand the importance of self custody

@mir_btc great article about Satoshi and his birthday nod to executive order 6102.

My immigrant great-great grand parents were forced to sell the gold coins they received as a wedding gift. When my great-great-grandfather died young , my great-great-grandmother and her 7 kids had to sell the farm and survive on their heavily depreciated fiat savings. The boys all had to go to work, only the girls could finish high school. In my family we never forgot or forgave FDR.

Did You Know? Passports Were a “Temporary” War Measure

It takes less than a century, it seems, to see the absence of freedom as a natural condition.


Be careful where you store your keys. Apparently in the US you are now guilty until proven innocent and/or have no right to privacy. In particular the FBI can raid and confiscate any safe deposit boxes they want.


@pete if you solve the mystery please post an update. My guess is they’re part of an ovo lacto vegetarian and gluten-free doomsday cult hold up near by waiting for covid to cleanse the earth. 😜
