Oldest bitcoins ever spent just moved today. Experts all agree that they're most unlikely to be Satoshi coins. But what's super LOL about this is that the address in question (17XiVVooLcdCUCMf9s4t4jTExacxwFS5uh) is one of the ones that Craig Wright submitted in his court filing ( as being one of his Tulip Trust addresses that are impossible to access until the "bonded courier" arrives with the missing key fragment.

"The hard part of #currency design seems to be incentivizing the type of economic activity which leads to the kind of world we want to live in and avoiding hoarding and #speculation."

LibreOffice 7.0 is on the way! Our QA (quality assurance) community has announced the first Alpha release, for testing. The final version is due in early August. More details here:

@falgn0n also in some places it says that the MUC needs to be registered members only as well as non-anon for omemo to work.

Tox or Scuttlebutt are good examples of what I mean, they have their own specific protocols that nothing else uses.

Lesson learned? Even Libre software can fool you into joining a walled garden. Only networks formed from open protocols such as the and are truly .
