Leaking private keys via tx signatures is creepy. Wasn't really aware of it, especially not leaking xprv via 64 transactions. Amazing.

Let's talk on how we can secure our bitcoins even if our hardware wallet is hacked. Thanks @walletfail and @pwuille for inspiration. medium.com/@snigirev.stepan/ha

The weird 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.

A sybil + malware attack is ongoing against @ElectrumWallet@twitter.com users - if you see a message asking you to upgrade, don't click on it! Users who only connect to their own personal Electrum server are unaffected. github.com/spesmilo/electrum/i

Pet peeve: People who hide behind complex jargon and phrasing.

If you can't explain it to me in language I understand, I do not trust you actually know it in the first place.

Price predictions are a pet peeve of mine. No offense to @BitfuryGeorge, of course. A lot of people are doing it. The reason why they annoy me so much is that, IMO, the value of Bitcoin has nothing to do with the price of Bitcoin. twitter.com/BitfuryGeorge/stat

I’m not sure that is health and Safety approved.

Relative time locked output vs relative lock time:

"This coin can't be spent until it has 1000 confirmations"
vs
"This tx can't be confirmed until the output spent by this input has 1000 confirmations, but the coin it's spending can be spent by some other tx at any time".

What's the lower limit on the target change factor (>=1/4) for? Is it to limit the effect of a DoS attack where a single entity adds eg 13x the total hash rate during one day (1 retarget period) and then turns it off? ping @peterktodd@twitter.com

A nice writeup on the importance of difficulty adjustment factor limits (1/4<=factor<=4) (thanks @peterktodd@twitter.com): petertodd.org/assets/commitmen

If central banks buy debt & equity to avoid a crash, markets will have a bigger crash once CBs stop buying. As CBs can't let markets crash, they can't stop buying. The only other possible outcome is complete nationalization & centralized credit allocation m.theepochtimes.com/are-centra

Pro tip spree on the fascinating and deceptively complex task of asking someone (knowledgeable) for help on an issue/error/problem of yours:

People are natural problem solvers. You can take advantage of this by making the right preparations and asking the right questions.

Thread yeah!
