Sosthene, I totally agree that this is a subject to be discussed. But this pattern has been repeated over the years. Pretty much all prominent core devs have been super-straight laced.
For example, people you'd expect to be enthusiastic about developing coinjoin decided not to do it (more than one), even though it's a real stretch to imagine that it's illegal or something.
This is a job for nyms, not people, ultimately (gray area for now).
@Sosthene @FreePietje 1/ Notification txs are designed to allow full wallet restore from the blockchain. They are not necessary for the address derivation scheme to function. Samourai Wallet is phasing out the use of notif txs altogether. So the "space wasted" via OP_RETURN argument is moot. 2/ Not sure what the "2 txs at least 1 block apart" argument is. Sounds like severe FUD.

Samourai 0.99.05 - We've introduced Staggered Delivery to Ricochet which spaces each hop 1 block apart for a very robust upgrade to network and TX fingerprinting defense, PayNym "Refund / Pay Again" convenience, UTXO tagging, Whirlpool prep and more...
Just to add to the confusion, I'm implementing something I'm calling "payjoin" in joinmarket atm, basically = steganographic tx/p2ep/ etc. No attempt to address the merchant use-case, just wallet-wallet.
I think everyone eventually comes round to the idea that this is a very desirable kind of coinjoin :)

Unapologetic idealists have perhaps the best chance of changing the world. Bitcoin has been built by such people, and it offers a revolutionary way of storing and exchanging value.
Thankful for projects like @samourai_official that recognize this, and are willing to take risks instead of just pandering to the masses. Removing fiat conversions really is just a small thing, but the ideal is preserved and promoted.
We've pushed update 0.98.87 - This one will definitely ruffle feathers, but we hope you understand. Read why we decided to remove all fiat currency from Samourai Wallet in our latest blog post. Plus Samourai now available in Chinese and 11 other languages https://blog.samouraiwallet.com/post/178536644472/09887-welcome-new-international-users-and
Here is a 2-wallet Samourai Stowaway spend. Neither output displays the true spend amount which is, in effect, "stowed away" via a trusted cooperation between 2 wallets.

@samourai_official So far the only walletmaker (i know) who understands the important values of bitcoin. Its not hard actually:
1.) be transparent/open source
2.) focus on security
3.) protect users privacy (= ensure/enable fugibility)
4.) Focus on #Bitcoin and not on satisfying as many different shitcoinholders as possible
5.) KISS - Keep it Simple Stupid
Spread the word and help others to understand whats important and how to store/use Bitcoint! Education is the key to mass adoption!
I've been hearing about Mastodon for a while and I'm willing to try it out. Last night I learned that you can't keep your identity should an instance be shut down, which I am not a fan of. I was thinking maybe someone could build something on top of git, where as you gpg sign all your commits (messages/replies) and you can refer to them across repos (instances) and your gpg key *is* your identity. The biggest hurdle is probably user experience around key management. Like Bitcoin.
@samourai_official even better, it seems to be specifically Bitcoin Twitter coming over
