To put it quite simply, the problems with the world today that is clearly the solution to are so blatantly obvious that if you haven't done your homework and bought some bitcoin, I don’t have the time to try to convince you, sorry.

Sell the news indeed!

As much as the $ETH pump and dumpers try to fool everyone with second rate marketing campaigns, people aren't buying it.

I'm bootstrapping a new node and need to open a 1 million sat channel to a pleb. Anyone need some inbound liquidity? If so reply or DM with your pubkey.

Only one for now.

Happy to see Eric Voskuil has been going at it hard on libbitcoin! I tried to build version 3.6.0 a little while back and ran into problems with boost on my modern distro. Looks like he's had a ton of commits lately! Wonder if there will be a new release coming soon?

Wow that Biden speech was divisive. Good luck voting your way out of this. "DeMoRaCy!!!1!" lol

As of 2021, the size of the bond market (total debt outstanding) is estimated to be at $119 trillion worldwide.

#bitcoin will ultimately eat this market.

If this post saves even one node operator from funds loss it will have all been worth it!

New blog post out! This post is a story about how my Raspberry Pi LND node blew up and my sloppy backup practices lead to potential :bitcoin: loss. In addition to my words of warning, I also talk about my experience with the recovery process.

Important note: Ethereum is also a shitcoin. I just couldn't fit that in the 280 character limit.

First they came for the shitcoins, and I did not speak out—because I was not a shitcoiner.

Then they came for Ethereum, and I did not speak out—because I was not an Etherian.

Then they came for Bitcoin—and the network continued to operate because :bitcoin: is decentralized.

Attacks like this don't hurt Bitcoin. If anything these attacks help Bitcoin by getting more people to realize that they shouldn't mess with these insecure VC pump and dumps and should instead hold their wealth in the hardest money every created.

This time last year, I didn’t know shit about coding. Then after a brief conversation with @martycodes I picked it up and been having a good time with it ever since.

Now I’m building shit, understanding how programs work and contributing to projects.

Well, it looks like I'm going to have to shut down this instance for a while until I figure out how to get more storage. I can't keep from maxing out the storage space on my 50GB VPS and I don't think I want to use S3 for cache (sounds not so decentralized to me). The cache on this thing grows forever and there seems to be no way to clear it properly. Hopefully this github issue is resolved, otherwise I'll have to figure out a new hosting solution.

I stacked :bitcoin: today. It was a humble stack but a stack none the less. How could I not at this bargain price?!

Those of us that understand what we own hold our keys and can handle the volatility.

Those that haven't taken the time to learn about what they own are the ones using these rehypothecation services and are learning some hard lessons.

My talk from Advancing Bitcoin in March on "sigma protocols and why they matter .." was put up on vimeo a while back (just found out):

They did a pretty good job with the edit imo since they focused on the slides.

Bit of a risky topic, since it's so academic but tried to point out the use cases and use analogies in the first half. The maths lost a lot of people in the second half, understandably.

This server was setup as a means to decentralize the Bitcoin social networking community in a small way. I came from The administrator there felt that the users should create their own Mastodon instances to keep the community decentralized so I created this instance.
