Great first-time contributions to Bitcoin Core:
- reviewing PRs by building/testing locally,
- adding test coverage, and
- best thing: finding bugs, whether conceptual or in code
Common, well-intended, but often not well-received:
- reviewing PRs with only nits
My conviction levels in bitcoin rise every day. Im already irresponsibly long. I am now thinking it may not be even worth owning any other asset as a long-term asset allocation, but that's a story for another day (I'm still thinking through this).
Publicly traded companies are starting to diversify their cash holdings into bitcoin. Boardrooms across the country will begin to ask, "Should we be diversifying into bitcoin too?"
Hyperbitcoinization can happen faster than you can imagine. Be prepared.
1/ Running a massive set of Lightning nodes for @ln_strike has been fun and really interesting.
With Strike rapidly growing, we were seeing spikes of payment failure rates for the first time. Investigating lead us to some interesting insights 👇
People seem confused by this banal observation.
If it doesn't generate cashflow, it's not an investment.
If you have a use for it, it's a consumption good.
If you have no use for it but hold it to store value, it's money.
Houses are consumption goods treated as money https://t.co/8qVLzkAlms

I follow a lot of Bitcoin accounts and a lot of Ethereum accounts. I'm noticing that currently Ethereum accounts are a bit "stronger" than Bitcoin accounts. More articulate, more well-versed with the other side's arguments, better at making the other side seem less knowledgeable.
While ether huffers scramble to receive bitcoins for writing a script to verify the monetary supply because no one had any incentive otherwise to check that metric…
Here's how Bitcoin calculates the total amount of UTXO values.
Simple. Easy. Run the numbers yourself today! https://t.co/kEao70TGR5
@BlockGeekDima @LayahHeilpern I just believe in hard money, meritocracy and ethics. Simple enough. I think there are unicorn dreamers who got trapped in magical thinking with themselves as self-regarded tech genius and central bank policy maker. Reality is they are mis-allocating capital, scam 2.0, idiocracy.
Some would say "don't buy ledger".
I prefer the other solution: Stop using shitcoins.
Shitcoins make such kind of vulnerability possible. This is the Shitcoin Tax, the invisible tax you have to pay for using it.
