Last time here was 2 years ago. Let's try again! I'll be posting :Lightning: content, aiming for daily... :bitcoin:

Years ago I said if we hit 50k I'd spend some of my old tipjar (currently powering my Lightning node) on a decent coffee machine for those 5:30am Lightning calls.

So, now I'm testing hodlhodl.com/join/2WQA for selling some BTC; face-to-face trades in Adelaide could take a while though!

Here's a proof that I own a taproot output on signet height 14344 without revealing which one it is. This makes use of bare pubkeys in taproot and libsecp256k1-zkp ring signatures. Pushed the PoC code here github.com/jonasnick/taproot-r

Bitcoin Consensus and Solidarity:

rusty.ozlabs.org/?p=620

I deleted a much more technical post, because it derives from this base idea: that consensus is vital but unverifiable. Our only defense is to have our signalling be open, broadly-based and sustained.

Met someone today who sold all their BTC and Eth last week. Hey, good on them, they profited.

The idea that Bitcoin portends a fundamental shift, vs just an investment which has appreciated in value, is still very niche. (Though this view makes sense if it's all "crypto" to you).

TIL I have just over 1M sats in lntipbot.

I used my previous tips to power my lightning node, but that's all good. What should I spend these on? Just lntip everyone?
