Watchtower PR is now merged into lnd: https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd/pull/3133 Future iterations on the concept will introduce more public modes of operation, which could have incentive models like ecash tokens to compensate for operational costs.

Great article on decentralizing the last mile for Bitcoin:
Just a day after Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed turning the Post Officie into a bank for poorer Americans, the U.S. Postal Service reported losing $2.1 billion in just three months. Yikes.
An interesting look into CryptoCapital, shows the lengths (often shady) custodial exchanges have to go to to manage their fiat:
Interesting Internet-Draft: MASQUE – think "VPN over HTTPS", undetectable, unblockable.
Excited to see the first Whirlpool transaction hitting mainnet. Every Whirlpool transaction is 100% max possible entropy, 100% max wallet efficiency, with 0 deterministic links. Every. single. time. https://oxt.me/transaction/a554db794560458c102bab0af99773883df13bc66ad287c29610ad9bac138926
