Looking for a home? Accepting applications now, don't be shy. whynot.hostyourown.tools may be the place for you. Make sure to read server rules before applying.

Rather have end-to-end encryption? I'm off Keybase since their recent ToS changes, so instead feel free to hop in our Matrix room at matrix.to/#/!uoNxkrFoSzjTDSCDw If you don't currently have a Matrix home, I got you one at usethe.tools

I won't be deplatforming myself anytime soon ✊ 💪

Cryptoeconomics was first printed for #CryptoEcon2020 in Hanoi, one year ago today. In honor of this unlikely event, I've made the 2nd edition available as a free PDF.

Overall bitcoin twitter is very bad at discerning profound from platitudes

I SSH'd into a Virtual Private Server and restarted a Synapse instance powering my usethe.tools Matrix community this morning using Termux app on a deGoogled Pixel 4a running CopperheadOS.

What a time to be alive.

They illegal smuggled in barrels and lockplates from France when they could, melted down tools when they couldn't, and armed a serious fighting force with guns they made (without any governmental permission slips from the Crown).

So good try, but history is clear on this.

@max @stephanlivera True dat. We can help noobs go much further with just a BIP39 passphrase + redundant backups than with complex multisig setups. Few.

You should now be greeted with this when visiting bitcoiner.guide in via Tor browser on desktop 😉

Self hosting feels good.

If you don't have a good wallet algo, you will probably shoot yourself in the foot with transactional privacy.

Also spending one UTXO at a time isn't private.

You want higher entropy on your transactions. Don't listen to MrHodl. He hasn't got a clue.

I just confirmed that yes, @brave browser's Tor mode appears to leak all the .onion addresses you visit to your DNS provider

Brave had one fucking job to do.

Just for fun, let me update some price figures. The first part was for the S17 PRO 50Th/s estimates back then. Second was the MicroBT M30S at a hosting facility. Let's see how we would be doing today.
