This is both hilarious, scary and the perfect example of why we need Bitcoin. Venmo worried about the word "Cuban".
I shiver! People, I tell you: The world is changing.
Just passed the #LNTrustChain Torch to @kallerosenbaum
Sent over $100 from South Africa to Sweden in seconds
The torch has passed through over 150 people in countries around the world. No banks were involved.
This is why I got into #Bitcoin ⚡⚡⚡
I just received the #LNTrustChain torch from
@ImranLorgat@twitter.com. Who wants it next? Send an invoice for 3080000 satoshis.
@ImranLorgat @jochemin BOOM! https://t.co/cxX@ImranLorgat@twitter.com
An old, but still relevant and true education meme about #Bitcoin. What it's describing is the difficulty of hash collisions.
All the mining hashrate in Bitcoin's entire history can only bruteforce a 90-bit hash. If there were two "Bitcoin"s, that'd be 91 bits (not 180 bits).
The weird #bitcoin nonce pattern is still there at block 556995 ...
I would expect nonces to be totally random, like block 100000-400000. But ever since block 400000 there are 4 areas with less nonces. Of course before block 100000 it was Satoshi playing around.
