@stephanlivera Great podcast that helps demystify seeds, output descriptors, PSBTs, and the future with taproot. A must listen to anyone building wallets.

This is really interesting stuff

Very interesting research from Rene Pickhardt that concludes the base fees for routing lightning payments add too much complexity to pathfinding and by removing them we can make more effective use of multipath payments.

"we're going to try bring Arti to a production-quality client implementation over the next year and a half"

"Eventually, once our Rust implementation of Tor is a good replacement for our C implementation, we will stop adding new features to the C implementation, and eventually drop support for it entirely."


#Tor is being rewritten in #Rust 😀

Mechanicville Hydroelectric is the oldest renewable energy facility in the world that’s still running, but it was nearly dismantled as it’s difficult to maintain profitability.

That recently changed, and it’s now profitable, thanks to mining. ♻️


@CountBitcoin thanks for providing some bitcoin lore I’d never heard ! The guy has his own exchange too, I guess when you hold enough that’s just what you do.


@nvk @saifedean but at the same list price as the original edition? jokes on him he'll only get my dirty debased fiat ! 😜


Elmo: Recursive Virtual Payment Channels for Bitcoin


@mystik @htimsxela @FreePietje @stevenroose I will take lightning any day of the week over any altcoin/shitcoin. I understand there are tradeoffs such as having to monitor channels and keep metadata backed up properly. But it is still a non-custodial solution to micropayments and will only get better as the software and protocols develop. Schnorr based payment points will be a major step up in safety and privacy: suredbits.com/payment-points-p

@htimsxela @stevenroose @FreePietje paper gold has a much longer and well documented history of being debased and/or confiscated .. paper is essential what people have on custodial exchanges.. actual physical bitcoin would still probably need cell phones to verify so why not just use lightning ⚡️

@CountBitcoin amigo, I believe you are referring to the Pupusas Plebs 🇸🇻

Historic moment.

El Salvador on track to become the first country to accept Bitcoin as legal tender and to hold Bitcoin as a reserve asset.

The future is wide open.

@JackMallers is a legend.

If you are a new Bitcoin HODLer, listen to this episode.

I agree with every single point.

Always amazed at how transparent our little kiddie pool market is sometimes.
