@erikledgers All you have to do is browse the various Bitcoin forums to see the problems users face. High learning curve hinders adoption.

@rhapsodhy @abbydactyl Correct. It’s actually quite simple - just use Signal for SMS instead of the Messenger app.

@rhapsodhy @abbydactyl If you send a message to a non-Signal user, it sends them an SMS. I just did this yesterday, so it definitely works.

@erikledgers I’m not at all worried about the monetary policy. More worried about usability, scalability, and security.

The world is changing faster than is humanly possible to ingest. You can either surf the waves of entropy or drown as they crash over you.

@covati I’d guess a relative rating would be Signal > WhatsApp > iMessage > Viber, though I don’t know a ton about the last 2.

@zooko I think it will need to be 0 clicks to overcome this level of apathy 😞

@abbydactyl I see Whatsapp as having to join a new network whereas with Signal you keep your existing network but are encrypting a portion.

@abbydactyl Are there? I thought both use your contact list of phone numbers, but Signal seems better because it also supports regular SMS.

@kristovatlas Yeah, but I don’t have time to wait for them all to get burned, nor do I want to get burned conversing in cleartext. :-/

@SooMartindale @TradeBlock There’s nothing to prevent users from simply re-broadcasting transactions that have been evicted from mempools.

Continually amazed by apathy of my (even tech-savvy) friends regarding privacy. Many refuse to click 3 buttons to install Signal. Wat do?

@bitstein @Truthcoin @patio11 It’s nice to have this on public record for us to bookmark alongside bitcoinobituaries.com

Blocks stay full due to lingering low fee transactions. Here’s one from over a year ago, just confirmed. tradeblock.com/bitcoin/tx/6ef…

@LaurentMT Spot checking the blocks those txs were confirmed in and I only see BTCC & F2Pool. Perhaps paying out-of-band fees?

@LaurentMT Interesting, though looks more like a service than an attacker to me. Incoming payments at all hours, outgoing in smaller range.

@ivglavas Sure, if they approve physical asset ETFs such as gold and oil, makes sense to me to approve digital asset ETFs.
