Question about running my own node (I'm new to this).
Common advice is to run your own node so you can validate transactions for yourself. Does this mean querying *my* node for my transactions (if so, how)? Or just comparing block height on my node against public block explorers and making sure they match?
I feel like Caitlin Long is providing invaluable education to the #bitcoin community with her analysis of Wall St’s entry and their practices (rehypothecation and commingling). Good stuff.
I see posts/toots about the BTC price lately but, being a committed hodler, I don't give a shit.
Taking the long view—the “low time preference” per @saifedean—eases short term concerns because there is a desirable goal on the horizon.
Keep working. Hodl. Be happy right now.
