This is how I closed my Coinbase account with some unwithdrawable dust balances... opened a support ticket and told them to keep the lousy 0.11 cents. Something I should have done years ago. #deletecoinbase
The Bitcoin 5th column is real, and growing. Like deep cover Soviet moles but loyal to the ideals of a global individualist movement, not a socialist one.
We collect a regular paycheck, but watch the growing value of Bitcoin with more than idle interest. We might fit in as loyal corporate workers, but are secretly working to overthrow the economic system that allows the bourgeois management class to rule. Our manifestos come from Tim May and Eric Hughes. Builders of the world, unite!
For those that missed it.. @nvk bounced a BTC private key off the ionosphere using HF radio.

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.
