Doing this right is a balance of security and simplicity.  If we try to do it in a way that is overly convoluted, or requires a very good memory, or would be difficult to communicate to another trusted human, we are increasing the possibility of a "foot gun".  When I have thought through these I have tried to come up with schemes where I would combine a set of keys for multi-sig with decoy amounts in the wallets associated with the single keys, along with BIP39 passphrases, AND the use of exotic derivation paths.  I began to realize that if I over-engineer the method in the name of "security" I am increasing the chances that I can make a mistake, or simply forget one of the things I did.

The great thing about Bitcoin is that (unless you do it wrong), you start from a position of unimpeachable security. A random 256 bit number (or series of such) completely unknown to anyone else. It's true that management of that poses some difficulties but solutions tend to be problematic only in that they have reduced security compared to the maximum security bitcoin provides and not in comparison to more traditional options for wealth storage (which look pretty poor in comparison).

And unfortunately, for some (most probably) users a bitcoin bank may be the safest solution even taking the counterparty risk into account.  Leaving your bitcoin on an exchange, or in your CashApp wallet is rightly frowned upon by we OG elite... but until we have better trust minimized options it still might be best for the masses.

I wouldn't really agree. That's kinda throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It may just require more sophisticated key management techniques and for people to become more aware of their availability. Your bank and another party might participate in an m of n arrangement, for example. (Though bviously, you are sacrificing some security there, it's still better than trusting someone else with all your funds). The major thing is education though. Of the people I gave Bitcoin to in the past, none of them took notice of my warning to take backups of their wallets.

I certainly agree with this from a idealistic standpoint... But I have found even just getting a lightbulb to go on when just describing what makes bitcoin different than say, Venmo can be hard.  So helping Joe Sixpack custody his own keys safely is tricky.

Among your family and friends, who owns Bitcoin?

This is too invasive a question.

The correct answer is we are all no-coiners.

Any other answer could be detrimental to you, your friends' and family's well being.

Switching to a Mac is any easy enough solution for the average person worried about ransomware.


Only if you see it from a client side perspective...
You can happily throw away Apple's server software, though.
Industry runs M$ servers, typically, and you're right in some way, because the OS itself is the malware.


Very true the retard politicians should be targeting the actual fault in the system that allows this and its the laughable security provided to the average user from garbage OS's that prioritize infringing on privacy rather than security of data thereby allowing an attack vector baked in on every OS.

Of course this will never happen as they live off the Tit of corporations.

... this blatant market manipulation via derivatives is how they have been keeping a lid on gold (and silver) price for the last 30 years. Manage price, manage price expectations, keep the plebes in rotting fiat.

... quite likely this is real reason they have gone after Bitmex, as it is an options shop they can't control

Not options actually: only futures and perpetual swaps, absolutely no fiat in or out.

But yes, I too think that's it. It was too easy for un-KYC'd Muricans to use. And use they did.

For fairness, it must be said that the barting is gone since Bitmex has started receiving some sweet Uncle Sam love.

10 merits from mindrust...



For a respond outlining this sentence “If you don’t believe it or don’t get it, I don’t have the time to try to convince you, sorry.”

- Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of #Bitcoin


Here he still had corn and of-course when he had and saw FIAT nr go up, he decided to be a coiner, then when he lost his believe ALL because of FIAT nr went down... He decided to be a NO-COINER, all because of the dirty FIAT system was the only reason on his "mind"... I bet his not having a "rest" at all at this time, poor guy.

Very good for mining the coin.kind Flat price + Flat difficulty also Good for buy the dip and hodl.

But yeah I see it being done to encourage Doge speculation and the like.

Ever since  you pointed it out I have purchased on the last three dips in the pattern.

I do see a solid break out on May 1 after the futures clear.
