we did a thing:
i ramble at length about wabisabi and bitcoin privacy more generally, and slightly misrepresent some important research because my memory is unreliable^W^W^W^W^Wto confuse surveillance capitalists ;-)
Design for a CoinSwap Implementation for Massively Improving Bitcoin Privacy and Fungibility
Alice sends tx A->B but the coins actually end up in Z. Then when normie Carol sends a tx an analyst must deal with possibility that Carol's coins disappeared too
Good news: the sale of the .org domain to Ethos Capital, the private equity firm that was supposed to buy it, has been rejected!
I wrote what I hope is an intuitive explanation of how keyed-verification anonymous credentials can be used to build CoinJoin transactions, sharing here for feedback before publishing it more widely
hmm, feels like i should probably revisit https://gist.github.com/nothingmuch/652f3a98089a0600637eadab738b2d6a now that output script descriptors are a thing

@cwebber @AceNovo @Gargron I don't really understand how any of the arguements against AP C2S don't also apply to micropub C2S. Micropub has create and delete, but ALSO update, AND it can do all kinds of 'post types' - according to the *microformats 2* vocab (which is managed on a wiki by a small community, rather than a W3C Rec like AS2) - which still may not correspond with stuff a Mastodon server would expect.
AP clearly specifies how servers should federate incoming activities [ctd]
please destroy my draft idea for improving bitcoin fungibility by helping wallets interoperate more easily:
of the 4 listed options for serializing this data, I only think the first 2 are viable right now (bip 124 is a more general solution, but is incomplete). not sure which one is preferable, due to tradeoffs made
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
