The block subsidy allows an attacker to profitably censor all transactions by mining empty blocks.

Endless inflation is not the answer. A fee market must develop.

Shitcoiners talk about diversification.

If you really want you can diversify into other investment classes such as stonks and real estate.

Money however, is a zero sum game. is the clear winner. The rest of "crypto" is just founders and VCs getting rich off of suckers.

Looks like I'm now almost a cybercriminal according to Apple

@michaelfolkson it's like people regard twitter as some kind of friend (that can be convinced if you just keep insisting enough) instead of a global social media company 😀

The c-lightning team has just released v0.10.2. This update includes a slew of upgrades, but the biggest are improved pay plugin performance, a database size decrease, stale connection detection, a new datastore API, & more. #Bitcoin #LightningNetwork ⚡️

"Exit polls showed that the coronavirus was not important to voters in Virginia. It was education. Which is code for white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race."

'Later on, Reid described Republicans as a threat to national security, declaring “you have to be willing to vocalize that these Republicans are dangerous, [..]" '

It's probably this nonsensical reasoning why they lost 🤔

The U.S. should have 53 states because it's a prime number and can't be
