According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

As we should all be well aware, the mempool activity can not be firmly correlated to any pricing action.

Having said that, things are getting spicy today.

US Startup Introduces Crypto Hardware Wallet Chip for Cell Phones

VaultTel has introduced a hardware cryptocurrency wallet designed to fit in a mobile phone SIM card tray, a press release from the company reveals on March 6.

The solution reportedly combines a mobile application and a hardware chip, dubbed the VaultTel Card. The crypto storage solution will be sold in the U.S. starting today and will “immediately expand” to European countries via VaultTel's United Kingdom subsidiary.

The wallet uses biometric authentication along with the military grade encryption standard, AES 512, the press release reports.

I think it's just Jbreher spamming the network


I think all y'all oughter at least ponder the possibility that the entity that was spamming* back in 17 was core/Blockstream. It's arguable that the blocking of the stream was the coalescing event that finally bribed the community into accepting The SegWit Omnibus Changeset. And that without such blocking of the stream, the community never would have accepted the segwit poison pill.

edit: forgot the asterisk: * In my mind, anything that pays the fee is by definition not spam, so...
If you disagree, then please provide a description of an objective test that can be applied to any tx in order to classify it as spam/notspam.

81 days into our new Bull Market and all is well Smiley

Converted 2 more nocoiners into coiners over the weekend. Ive been converting for 5 years now and it is just getting easier and easier, I have never witnessed people so aware of the rising US Dollar cost of everything they want and need in life.

One big thing I have noticed is that while people understand Bitcoin more and more each year, almost no one I have ever converted understood how new dollars were created. This has not changed one bit in 5 years in my experiences. Most still to this day think the bank is lending them grandmas checking deposit out for their credit card loan.

The greatest trick the bankers ever pulled was obfuscating money printing.

No worries, we will free all the worthy nocoiners from the shackles of money printing. Cool

ESG, KYC & AML are attack vectors on Bitcoin

I think that three or more meets the definition of multi-,but hey what do I know.  Double digits is some way higher levels, that's for sure.  The 21 club is becoming more and more prestigious, too.

I don’t like to know how many bitcoin’s other people have, it doesn’t interest me but I think lots in this thread are 21 club members.

Some members don't mind sharing their specifics, and it seems a pretty safe assumption that on average active participants here are at least in the 2 digits and many are 21 club eligible....

Nonetheless, I also think that quite a few members do get shaken out of their coins or run into cashflow issues, trading (gambling) or even security (third party exchange) issues that cause them to deplete their BTC stash. 

I am not innocent of such depletions, including one of my most recent foibles of keeping too many coins on WEX.  It really pisses me off because I thought that WEX was attempting to fight the good fight, but on reflection, I understand that the pressures on them was likely too great, and it likely becomes really difficult to do the right thing when one of the main principles (as far as I understand the situation) got arrested and really there seems to be little sympathy on his freedom... likely costly with attorneys and even the US Government probably wants to take whatever measures to confiscate any coins that he might have too.  So in those circumstances, it seems impossible to keep the exchange open. 

Unrealistic as it may seem, I still have a slim hope to get some coins back from WEX, but likely the odds of getting any coins back are in the .5% arena, at best... so my BTC holdings shows that WEX account as only .005 of the value that was originally in there.  Fuck.  what a reminder of a mistake and lost value along the way. 

By the way, I mention a lot of this to suggest that even if any of us may project a path of building value and accumulating BTC, we also have to account for various factors that could cause use to lose some coins along the way through both known unknowns and unknown unknowns. So, in that regard, if any of us prefer to stay in the 21 club, for example, if we are in such club, then we may have to have a decent cushion above that amount, perhaps even 50% above 21 BTC (which would make it 31.5 BTC), just to attempt to stay in such club (same is true at any other projected BTC accumulation/maintenance levels).

Bitcoin mining sees growth after 19-month low

https://cryptoinsider.com/bitcoin-mining-sees-growth-after-19-month-low/

"After over a year and a half of decreasing Bitcoin mining revenue, a new report shows a small yet significant recovery in the gross margins.
...
Last month, Bitcoin mining revenues fell to their lowest intake since August 2017. The total mining income in February 2019 totalled $195 million – a mere fraction compared to the $951 million peak of December 2017, and a 10% decline from the previous month.
...
“In December 2017 fees alone earned miners over $295Mn. But along with the price drop and the adoption of SegWit rising from an average of 12% in January 2018 to over 43% in February this year, revenues from fees have become an afterthought.”
...
The gross margins of the miners went down from 94% at the beginning of 2018, to 32% at the beginning of 2019. But in February, the gross margins rose up slightly to 39% as shown in the graph below.



...
While there is a positive turn in the mining industry, we cannot make wild assumptions about the implications it may have on the market in the near future. The information here is not sufficient to conclude that an indication for a nearing bull market or an improvement of price stability.
...
Another important point to note is that in May 2020, Bitcoin is going to be halving – namely, the bitcoin mining rewards will be algorithmically reduced by 50%. This means that the rewards per newly discovered block will drop from 12.5 to 6.25. Mining will be significantly less profitable if the Bitcoin price will not grow by then."
