Still convinced everyone is going back to Twitter in a week or two.

More people coughing up phone numbers to join Clubhouse than I see pouring in here from my understanding.

I have this weird idea for a distributed and private Mastodon instance:

- the instance would be Tor-only
- anybody* could help host an instance they like by installing and running some software (let's say a "node")
- the nodes would connect with each other and coordinate which one should do what (storage, database, http, etc)
- by using OnionBalance one can split the traffic among all the "http" instances

*not really "anybody" because this would make it trivial to take down the instance

So...the government created Tor, and publicly released it...because they wanted to use it. They also needed cover traffic.

What if Bitcoin is another such government project for black budget movement that spiraled wildly out of control and "Satoshi" vanished because a bunch of spooks had a heart attack at what they just set off?

All you fuckers, prove me wrong that everyone won't just be back on Twitter in a week or two.

Don't forget, DMs on Mastodon have no guarantee of being private across different instances.

Censorship restistance test: Coldcard is gay.

Just got in a discussion on slack and realised that it'd really be worth itemising specifically that set of fungibility techniques in Bitcoin that could at least theoretically have as anonymity set the whole blockchain. This is what I came up with, any thoughts?

2. LN **
2. scriptless script swaps **
3. Coinjoin Unlimited (coinjoinxt + dual fund)
4. Pay-to-endpoint style coinjoin
5. Regular 'Coinswap' without scriptless script **

** all need either (1) or Schnorr for goal.

Cold Card. Why risk it with an ETF when you can have it all in your hand? Cold Card wallet needs no website or computer to operate, unlike Trezor or Ledger. The security chips use secure elements, and pins can be programmed to brick the wallet in a duress situation. Back up of the wallet is accomplished through removable hi reliability, military grade SD cards available on the site.They are shipping NOW. Next level security for the truly

Who wants to propose TIP 148 for testnet?

(half the time they refuse to mine segwit. and yesterday were charging big fees to get in a block)
