PayNyms are cool. I used to think they were just a niche implementation of a BIP who had a very marginal use case but... It's kind of the same concept of payment channels that LN uses, minus the routing to other nodes but without the channel balance problems. Useful for private and frequent transactions between two specific parties (eg. when you get paid by your employer, paying rent to your landlord and more)
@samourai_official of course is always ahead of the curve.
Lightning Network has more nodes than Ripple, bcash and Litecoin put together
I remember saying this to Mike Hearn on IRC years ago. He wasn't particularly impressed with the thesis :)
But, I mean, if you think about it, it absolutely must be true. Weird though. Wishing for stability at this point is futile. Pegs (I refuse to call them "stable coins" just because Vitalik likes making up buzzwords) are just ticking timebombs.
@ChrisWere video about De-Googling Android (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4c2GTbXYknI) made me think about the daily information overload by following to many accounts/users and having a lot push notifications.
You can call it "digital diet".
So i'm thinking whats important for me, whats helps me in my job and for other parts of my life.
First step: unfollowing unimportant accounts on twitter (moving them to a list).
A mastodon instance for Bitcoin Maximalists.
No scams, no shitcoin, no impersonation, no begging, and no illegal content.
Keep it civil and we should all survive :)
