I sat down with @joerogan to talk about all the things that can and cannot be said -- and who decides them. From mass surveillance and my new book, Permanent Record, to deplatforming, police violence, and pardon, there's a lot here. youtube.com/watch?v=_Rl82OQDoO

RT @bitcoindevkit
Happy to announce @MagicalBitcoin 🧙 and @bitcoindevkit projects have joined forces and together will be called “Bitcoin Dev Kit” (aka BDK). @MagicalBitcoin main libraries have been renamed and are the new code base for the @bitcoindevkit

"[...] it successfully opened 106 channels in a single transaction." blockstream.info/testnet/nojs/
Channel opening cost reduced to 30%: 20,738 / 106 = 195 weight units instead of about 611. Also allows quickly opening many channels without reaching mempool limits. twitter.com/Blockstream/status

Get this - there is a Bitcoin wallet with 69,000 Bitcoins ($693,207,618) that is being passed around between hackers/crackers for the past 2 years for the purpose of cracking the password, no success so far.

I have the wallet, @Google hook me up with a quantum computer please.

Core Full-Node + @COLDCARDwallet without security or privacy compromises is becoming much easier.

Check out what @_benkaufman cooked-up to make "new wallet creation" UX on @SpecterWallet Desktop (coming 0.8.0 release).

want to run a node with tor v3 service? build this PR and launch bitcoind...i'm running this right now. atm there are at least two tor v3 nodes on the network. github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pul

RT @TheBlueMatt
Not your (cesium) atoms, not your time.

Not your time, not your full node.

This is why you can (probably) verify the bitcoin rules with a sundial.

(Has anyone tried to run a full node with a sundial for its time yet?)

RT @_k3tan
For some added context.

One of the great features of Electrum Wallet is you can connect your hardware wallet to it. However, to use Electrum Wallet with your own node, you need to install and configure some kind of Electrum Server with it.

Specter Desktop bypasses this. twitter.com/_k3tan/status/1302

RT @alexbosworth
Once we have dual party signatures in Lightning for channel funding, it would be nice to redesign public channels to allow for a shadow mirror channel that is unadvertised.

That way you can manipulate liquidity with the shadow channel without revealing its ownership so globally.

RT @pavolrusnak
Among other changes, this update brings the "Automated BIP39 recovery" by @lukechilds (who also made this demo video). Great work! 🎉 twitter.com/ElectrumWallet/sta

RT @BitcoinQ_A
I just published 'Creating a buy offer on @hodlhodl'.

Since the launch of nokyconly.com last week there has been a lot of chatter about P2P premiums. In this article I walk you through the steps to create your own buy offer, on your own terms.
