They're relevant this morning, BTW, because Signal has announced integration directly with MobileCoin for "secure, private payments."

I view this claim with extreme suspicion for a number of reasons.

They don't yet have a block explorer, from what I can tell, but it is a UTXO based coin, so a block explorer would likely look similar to BTC/LTC style block explorers.

I was having a productive morning, but now I'm having to do a deep dive on MobileCoin. I'll add the details I think are pertinent here on this thread as I find them.

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

'white paper'? how would you read an all-white paper. a paper with nothing on it. preposterous

It's easier to lie about why I'm laughing than explain @karalynndunton's tik toks to my family.

On the one hand, I do find it disconcerting to imagine that some of my friends started an OF account and rate dicks for money.

On the other hand, I started a SubStack and am routinely asked to rate my mutuals' portfolios, and I realize I'm probably weirding my friends out, too

There used to be this guy in my office, and he did this thing where if he noticed my glasses were dirty, he'd make this deal out of explaining how to clean them.
