Bitcoin Optech newsletter #147 is here:
- encourages miners to start signaling for taproot
- describes continued discussion about closing lost LN channels using only a wallet seed
- announces Bitcoin Core 0.21.1
- announces BTCPay 1.1.0

Poolin found a mining machine firmware that lacks the ability to signal, this is the reason why we have not fully signaled through ALL our nodes.
Poolin tech team is assisting the firmware team right now to get that firmware upgraded - thanks.

so if you are interested in a low-traffic list for notifications of releases, release candidates and security warnings, subscribe to:
