Added docs on how to reverse proxy to a @BTCPayServer hidden service hosted in your local network. Benefits: It requires no port forwarding on the LAN and also hides the local IP. Handy if you self host your BTCPay Server at home. Review appreciated … github.com/btcpayserver/btcpay

This new idea gained a lot of support on IRC yesterday:

lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipe

Basically: very short timeout for signalling, so we quit early if it doesn't work and can go on to try something else, but still a big delay between lock in and actual activation of rules on network.

i mean, a couple weeks ago, he tweeted how he built bitcoin core from source...

just noticed that jack dorsey began following the @BitcoinCorePRs twitter account... maybe we'll see him drop by the meetings sometime ;)

Next week's Bitcoin Core PR Review Club is on #20861, "BIP350: Implement Bech32m and use it for v1+ segwit addresses."

Come learn about and discuss the new Bech32m standard for native segwit output addresses.

Notes and questions are up. Thanks to glozow for hosting.

There are basically two options to build on #Bitcoin: You either accept and adhere to mostly nonsensical regulation (even worse: preemptive compliance) or you embrace its cryptoanarchic nature and confront all of that legacy bs which Bitcoin is supposed to obsolete.

heads up: onion v2 support was removed from Tor master
github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/iss

there has been no release yet with this change

but if you rely on any software without v3 onion support, time is getting short to update it

Bitcoin Core PR Review Club:

In just under 2 hours we'll continue our review of the Python implementation of Minisketch.

Computational algebra with the Berlekamp Trace Algorithm is on the menu.

Thanks to Pieter Wuille for hosting!

depending on your settings, your i2p service can communicate with tor and clearnet peers...default is yes and listening on

@jon for the past month or two, the bitcoin core i2p network has been 3-4 nodes. it’s been working great. don’t hesitate to join in, test, and spur further adoption.

the implementation last year of bip155 addrv2 into bitcoin core is what paved the way for support of longer addresses like tor v3 and now i2p, and for future network additions

@jon with this, you can now run nodes as dual hidden services on tor and i2p (invisible internet project). if tor is having issues, your i2p service can continue to communicate.

I2P network support was just merged into Bitcoin Core for the upcoming v22 release, adding a second privacy network available to users / nodes (please test it and report any issues). 🥳

Here's a proof that I own a taproot output on signet height 14344 without revealing which one it is. This makes use of bare pubkeys in taproot and libsecp256k1-zkp ring signatures. Pushed the PoC code here github.com/jonasnick/taproot-r

Just published a new blog post with @thunderB on how to use the @bitcoindevkit to create and spend from a descriptor based #Bitcoin wallet using two different spending policies. Check it out! bitcoindevkit.org/blog/2021/02
