Me: Hi, I'd lile to cancel my subscription on 6th June
Orange Customer Services (OCS): We cannot do that you need to call us no earlier than 14 days before termination date.
Me: Would it work if I call just a week before?
OCS: Then you risk paying subscription for a week after the 6th, this is why you have to call two weeks before
Me: This is precisely why I am calling now, not to paid while already gone...
OCS: Other questions?

Android < iOS < Calyx < Graphene

Graphene and Calyx are compatible with the Pixel 3 and up.
Calyx works on the cheap Xiaomi Mi A2 and faster on the Pixel 3a/3aXL.

I view Bitcoin maximalism as the belief that Bitcoin will be the money of the world someday.

It's not a statement that all altcoins will immediately go to zero, as some shitcoin apologists love to strawman.

After a couple of days "in the wild" on the master branch, had to fix 3 or 4 things up, most user-relevant one being, the ports for the directory nodes were changed (and documented right); we are using 5222 as the reachable port for the onion instead of 80.

So for anyone running it please update and reset the default config to get that bit right.

Hopefully there won't be more changes that are big, for a while (at least before next release).

BREAKING: The ECON & LIBE committees of the EU Parliament voted in favor of the FTR compromises D &amp; E that crack down on “unhosted” wallets.

It looks like buying more than 10 k€ worth of bitcoin triggers KYC alarm bells at Bitstamp 😳
Not only I have been asked to justify source of fund but also destination of past bitcoin withdrawals dating back to 2015. Ironically Bitstamp knew more than I did thanks to their blockchain analytics provider 😅
And it doesn't even stops there as I am now asked to justify all crypto deposit, starting from account opening, back in... 2012... seriously?
