Pinned toot I've been an environmentalist longer than I've been a Bitcoiner and I firmly believe can be part of the solution of . One of the big driving forces for our environmental issues are the consumption economy, an economy of evergrowing corporations and unlimited borrowing, and a political environment of big monopolies protected by politics through lobbying.
Bitcoin solves the former and while doing that, it reduces the power of government, taking a shot at the latter.

Spoke to a lifer in Belmarsh today. He said they're on total lockdown as there is so many cases in there.
Positive cases are all sent to the block that is on.

So is really starting to stink. I can't find some key features anymore. (1) the history of commits, (2) the activity graph/contributors list.

*sigh* so the wants to do good for people so it decides to discriminate them in jurisdiction? What's wrong with just ensuring adequate penalties for all hate crimes? Why do they need to be discriminated here?

I thought all the community wanted was to *not* be discriminated and just be treated equal? 🤔

Native segwit (bech32) (p2wpkh) (BIP84) wallets are the default in Joinmarket, as of just now, i.e. it is in master branch. Release soon.

Any insights? If it's opt-in for developers, I'm gonna start removing those apps, it bothers to get these all the time..

there is a economic metric called "non-farm employment", seemingly mostly used in the USA.
