Just successfully jammed some of my lightning channels as demonstrative test with the help of @joostjgr.

While the test was fun, the potential impacts are quite serious. I hope @lightning prioritizes resistance to this inexpensive, yet impactful griefing attack.

New release of #joinmarket switches to native segwit by default, including native segwit coinjoins ... makers and takers should migrate their funds into new wallets for cheaper fees and better integration with other wallets/features. You'll want to read the release notes on this one:

github.com/JoinMarket-Org/join

#bitcoin

This came around after loads of testing work put in.
Thanks to the tireless @joinmarket devs now we can coinjoin cheaper in bech32 format!
See the native segwit upgrade guide for how and why to move over from the old wrapped segwit wallets: github.com/JoinMarket-Org/join

Specter-DIY update with secure bootloader! A bit slow on first boot, but now you don't need to connect it to the computer ever again!

@transliminalid @michael_saylor Lightning, Coinjoin, Coinswap, Sidechains (that can be more private). All of these things make what you can observe on chain not translate to what individual people are doing.

You see net settlements, not individual actions.

Bitcoin Optech newsletter #125 is here:

- links to a website that tracks miner support for taproot activation
- announces a new organization funding Bitcoin research and development
- includes questions and answers from the Bitcoin StackExchange

I'd rather stand strong together in the crowd with coinjoined, swapped and lightning'd sats than to be left out to be extorted and censored alone with a non-fungible, KYC'd and tracked stash.
