New Issue! Now that it's official that El Salvadore has declared #bitcoin legal tender, how does one tactically use it day to day? I've been doing this for years, and I talk about my tool kit in this issue.
Also: @jack says @Square is considering a bitcoin hardware wallet. Square may be considering a #Bitcoin hardware wallet for securely storing the cryptocurrency connected to the company’s @CashApp capability, reported @TheBlock__
Also: El Salvador seeks to become the first country to make bitcoin legal tender. El Salvador President @nayibbukele announced that he intends to propose legislation that will make #Bitcoin legal tender in his country.
Also: @zcashomg grants $670,000 to the Tor Project. ZOMG, the Open Major Grants foundation for @zcash, gifted $670k to the Project for the development of a new toolkit that lets wallet devs ship Tor “built-in” on wallet releases.
Also: @nic__carter rounds up his thoughts from the Bitcoin 2021 conference. Key take-a-ways- range broadly, but he focuses on the energy debate, the great mining migration in the Far East, and the utilization of trapped energy in the form of flaring.
Finally: @CaitlinLong_ published her thoughts on the El Salvadore news. She predicts second order effects as a result, including a “knock-down drag-out fight” to backdoor it into other nations’ TradFi frameworks as a regular currency.
