@waxwing @htimsxela I'm still planning to check it out.. I haven't been to a Bitcoin focused conference since the EU Bitcoin Conference 2013 in Amsterdam so I'm overdue ;-)

@waxwing ah thanks good to know ! I was just happy to see a nearby conference about Bitcoin rather than "blockchain" or other such crap

Anyone else planning to go to the Bitcoin 2019 Conference this summer in SF? bitcoin2019conference.com/ looks like an interesting lineup

hi @nic thanks for sharing your story, you're fortunate to be starting your Bitcoin journey so early in your career. When I was your age the "internet" was young and world changing. I never expected to be involved with anything as revolutionary until Bitcoin came along. Bitcoin now is my ikigai and I can't wait to see where it takes me. PS. I wouldn't call this instance dead.. just jogging along at a different pace than twitter, which I (and other I suspect) prefer 😉

"targeting human rights activists, journalists and political rivals" - calls it "thriving at her job"

(later on) "also targeting Americans" - calls it "crossing a red line" and "I am officially the bad kind of spy"

“Some days it was hard to swallow, like [when you target] a 16-year-old kid on Twitter,” she said. “But it’s an intelligence mission, you are an intelligence operative. I never made it personal.”

You are a horrible human being without any morals.

@openoms thanks for the heads-up on this shit-coinery .. removed my account, wasn't using it for anything anyway.

@reason I saw the strikers this morning in front of the local high school, showing their true marxist colors, not giving a damn about the students or tax payers, and even worse they are fully supported by the crooks in city hall

Here's a payjoin demo, so people have some idea what workflow might be like: joinmarket.me/blog/blog/payjoi

"Confirmed. The repeating fast radio bursts from space is a message."
"What does it say?"
"We don't know."
"Who sent it?"
"We don't know."
"Should we reply?"
"It was sent 1.5 billion years ago. They're dead."
"So what do we do?"
"Remember them."
"But we don't know them."
"Still."

Nadia Henninger et al on "biased nonce-sense" - basically with lattice attacks they scanned and found a small number of repeated signatures with weak nonces leading to privkey extraction (almost no money in them, but still) - use RFC6979 wallet devs ...

Sometime on or after January 3rd, 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto created the genesis block. Six days later he mined the first block and released the open source Bitcoin client software. And on the seventh day (we hope) he rested. medium.com/@bytabit/happy-ten-

Really interesting read about evolution of use of dead drops in DNMs.

The statement about cryptocurrency privacy tech is kind of cringe-inducingly wrong ("Cryptocurrencies like Beam and Grin both provide a reasonable amount of privacy while also supporting atomic on-chain swaps between them and widely accepted cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.") but don't let that put you off, a strong recommend.
