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 for selling some BTC; face-to-face trades in Adelaide could take a while though!

Bitcoin Optech newsletter #139 is here:

- summarizes continued discussion about proposed methods for activating taproot
- links to an effort to document existing software building on top of taproot
- summarizes the "Erlay: bandwidth-efficient transaction relay protocol" Bitcoin Core PR Review Club meeting


If you have an opinion on ST (Speedy Trial) proposal please ACK/NACK this so we can log the level of support for this proposal

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

Bitcoin Consensus and Solidarity:

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?

I can't be the only I've thinking that corporations putting some of their liquidity into because it helps their stock price means they will panic and dump hard as stockholders scream in the next bear market? IOW, they'll behave just like retail before them, and we're still very much boom & bust cycles

(Hodlers don't care, ofc)

Am I the only one who wants a "MTGOX Forced Holder" T-shirt?
