Bitcoin Optech newsletter #182 is here:
- describes an idea to add accounts to Bitcoin for paying transaction fees
- recaps the "Erlay support signaling" Bitcoin Core PR Review Club Meeting
@arbedout Yeah, but that article says they don't have to disclose their trades until 45 days after making them, so it would be a very trailing ETF, basically perfect for congressional pumping a dumping.
(I know you were joking, it was just fun to think about the practicalities.)
@midnightmagic @livestradamus @jb55 I agree that's what hash commitments are, which is exactly the problem with them. If you don't build non-repudibility into the protocol, third-parties will create their own non-repuditiation systems on top of the protocol, and those third-party systems will be corruptible.
I'd rather have a system where people are verifying my signature on my posts than a system where people are asking trusted third-parties to attest to the contents of my posts.
@midnightmagic @livestradamus @jb55 doesn't really matter anyway. As long as your posts are public, a bunch of people will post hash commitments to your posts to opentimestamps, creating a believable set of attestations. In that case, it's better for publishers to cut out the middlemen and bake non-reputibility into the protocol so there's no risk the timestampers will collude to damage to publisher's reputation.
Me trying to explain what I do to a normal human:
"I work in an industry where, if you can type a semicolon, someone will probably throw a six-figure salary at you"
Them: "Cool, cool…"
"Oh also, some of the most difficult and time-consuming work I do is on nights and weekends, for free, for strangers I have no working relationship with."
@borderdoggo Also, Drew's post about why using Discord for FOSS projects is a bad idea
@jb55 boosted this both because its cool and to remind me to try it.
