The U.S. should have 53 states because it's a prime number and can't be
divided. Then we would truly be one nation, indivisible.

Bitcoin Optech newsletter #168 is here:

- summarizes a proposal to implement breaking changes in the DLC specification
- examines options for allowing recovery of closed LN channels using just a BIP32 seed
- describes an idea to generate stateless LN invoices
- includes popular questions and answers from the Bitcoin Stack Exchange
- continues the 'how to prepare for taproot' series: signmessage protocol still needed

Really interesting idea re: 'degrading multisignatures' laid out in @bitcoinoptech #166 (sent two weeks ago - I'm playing catchup)

If I combined all of Raoul Pal's "once in a lifetime opportunities" I would have 38 Raoul Pals.

My dog understand several human words. I don't understand any dog barks. He
may be smarter than me.

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.

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.
