my first ever serious bitcoin conference talk went... well, I think.
Move over Blockstream, Seoul Bitcoin officially has stickers of our own. Come to Seoul if you want some for free. DM if you’d like to buy some and we’ll see what we can do. Shout out to @kcalvinalvin for making this happen!
Question for @harding: Greg Maxwell recently talked about the old Timestamp attack in Bitcoin on the dev mailing list, so I was trying to understand it and I came across your old post ( https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/75438/what-prevents-similar-time-warp-attacks-in-bitcoin-as-happened-to-verge ). It seems like you're saying that the difficulty could drop by 75% in 2 weeks with this attack? Or was that part just to mention the max possible drop?
We were confused how much this attack could lower difficulty (1st success)
Also, paging Bitcoiners for a favor:
Would you mind subscribing to the Seoul Bitcoin youtube link and sharing it around? We're looking to get 100 subscribers in order to make available and utilize more features.

Cold Card. Why risk it with an ETF when you can have it all in your hand? Cold Card wallet needs no website or computer to operate, unlike Trezor or Ledger. The security chips use secure elements, and pins can be programmed to brick the wallet in a duress situation. Back up of the wallet is accomplished through removable hi reliability, military grade SD cards available on the site.They are shipping NOW. Next level security for the truly paranoid.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weJzeonwWvA
@doweig Buterin's term was a derogatory attack against bitcoin https://medium.com/@homeytel/the-bitcoin-standard-the-decentralized-alternative-to-central-banking-by-saifedean-ammous-b5bd4d7be6cf . In reality, BTC is pure, simple & focused. Thus, it's minimalist. Minimalism is the promotion of the things we most value & the removal of everything that distracts us from it.

2. Use a vpn or tor if you don't want @nvk to know your ip address(es)
