I've summarized my work on Userspace, Statically Defined Tracing support for Bitcoin Core in my Coinbase grant half-time report.
Bitcoin Optech newsletter #164 is here:
- describes a new web-based tool for decoding and modifying PSBTs
- links to a blog post and proof-of-concept implementation of an eltoo-based LN payment channel
- continues the 'how to prepare for taproot' series: LN with taproot
So I'd never stopped to consider that if a chain splits, any NFTs on that chain will exist in duplicate on the resulting forks.
So which one becomes the 'true/original NFT'? The one on the chain that wins the name (eg ETH vs ETC)? The one that ends up with more economic value? Does the minter get to decide?
I suppose that both copies would exist and hold some amount of value (whatever value an NFT holds, at least). No clear social consensus here, maybe just a case-by-case basis.

#Bitcoin Tech Talk #254
i'd really like to get more people helping out with c-lightning as a project, if you've been looking for a way to contribute to lightning but haven't taken the time to jump in, let me know in the comments what it'd take to get you off the sidelines 🗨️
There seems to be some chatter out there about "Bitcoin is violence" (currently listening to citadel dispatch).
There's an old pattern here - see how public key crypto was treated as munitions in the 90s. The problem I have is that no one ever points out the obvious - use of cryptography is 0% violence and 100% defence - it's like armor, not in any way like a weapon.
