improvements, as well as updated translations.
In my third Mempool Observation, I describe and use a methodology to identify Blockchain wallet transactions, derive wallet-usage insights, and discuss potential wallet privacy improvements.

Bitcoin StackExchange: “What are the different upgradability features in the BIP-Taproot (BIP 341) proposal?”
As of this merge, Joinmarket is using python-bitcointx as its bitcoin code backend, supports PSBT and BIP78 Payjoin (well, I tested it with real coins against btcpayserver so .. I think so!) and even has some (currently not activated) SNICKER code.
Heads up that this is a "breaking" change in that if you pull from master you will need to rerun the installation script.
The parable of Ruritania:
So BIP78 has been merged (no, don't ask me what that means!) and even has a test vector:
It's interesting how much debate there was about tiny subtleties of fee choice and restriction, and what each side checks - even the most trivial 2 party protocol can be hugely complex with interactivity.
Can't argue with that logic. https://autofreak.com/the-expanse-season-5-release-date-cast-plot-and-everything-detailed/44532/
A new blog post about the gridchain case (see earlier report from OXT Research):
Optech 102 ( https://bitcoinops.org/en/newsletters/2020/06/17/) talks a bit about WabiSabi.
I did spend some time analysing this crypto construction (at the prompting of @nothingmuch and others) but I mostly ended up getting lost in years-old crypto papers (and even finding an error in a 2013 paper security proof) and never really fully analysed the actual idea before getting sidetracked with a million other things ...
Anyway it's a very cool if rather sophisticated idea! Give it a read.
A 0.6.3 release for Joinmarket is imminent, which will be the *last release supporting Python 3.5*.
(next will be py3.6 and above, only, and will be a big change including psbt and other stuff)
Please run the current commit, if you have a chance, to sanity check if there are any final bugs to fix:
@fiatjaf Following up on this after two weeks of use: Fraidycat is great! This is the way I want to follow everyone and everything going forward. One feature I've come to especially appreciate is being able to partition certain people into the Occasional or Sometimes categories---e.g. people who I generally like and want to keep track of but whose political opinions or other content annoys me if I have to see it too often.
Thanks again for the recommendation!
