Acquiring bitcoin thru peer-to-peer exchanges like Bisq, RoboSats, Peach, etc. is the way to go. Unfortunately I have a dirty KYC stack. Should I prioritize exchanging my KYC sats for dollars via P2P to help provide btc liquidity on these marketplaces? Or am I creating an accounting/tax reporting nightmare? Looking for a small way to contribute to the global KYC-free movement. I would then exchange my new fiat back into bitcoin but in a privacy preserving way OBVS! Love the show!

Bitcoindad and Chris, where can i find the most comprehensive listing of all options for a bitcoin.conf file, with those options put in laymans terms (or at least somewhat clear terms)? Lots of random examples of .conf files out there, but have yet to find anything comprehensive. Chris: Your enthusiasm for Rust got me interested, and now down a coding journey. Thanks and keep Stacking!

Love the show! I’m a newcomer here, so forgive me if you’ve talked about this before: What are your thoughts on Monero? From what I’ve read it seems to fix a lot of the privacy concerns people have with Bitcoin, with no additional steps required. Do you think Monero could be a viable replacement for Bitcoin? Or is there room for both to coexist?

I was unsure about sending in a nitpicky correction, but it's under the sat limit so you can decide if it's worth mentioning on the show. Hong Kong doesn't have the death penalty and actually has, more or less depending on who you ask, a separate legal system from Mainland China (this is because Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China). Anyone convicted of possessing drugs in Hong Kong is (only) liable to a fine and imprisonment (source: Cap.134 Dangerous Drugs Ordinance)

Thanks for the show! When verifying software, aren't you still trusting that the signature on the website is correct? I'm not saying not to bother but. Also, it's your show and you can read or not read any boost you want. Personally, I would vote that you don't entertain the Molyneux boosts. It's not what the show is about.

Ooh! I get to offer a bit of a correction, though it's because I wasn't clear in my previous boost. I don't use my mined Monero to buy Bitcoin, I HODL that. I also stack sats every paycheck (And HODL those.) The sats I use for Podcasting is bought separately, as needed. I wish there was an easier way for the average person to mine Bitcoin, instead of these massive farming operations.

@ Chris I did the Monero mining on verry old xeons and i7 2x3 pcs... as a heater thingy. it didn't work for a 5x8x2.5 meters so 100M3 main room. I did not do the job. the white noise was loud and the mining was way to less to pay a part of the electricity. I do stil mine Monero on a pi, just for fun/learning.

TickTok Activated Softforks with Paul Sztorc
Excellent interview with Paul Sztorc--please keep up the lineup of these amazing guests! No shortage of fascinating topics. Here's a row of swans to propose more talk about Swan Bitcoin and other companies that use external custodians (Prime Trust, etc.), which may limit the business options Swan and similar outfits (and maybe more counterparty risk). CrowdHealth's investment in Swan Bitcoin may be a topic for another episode, also. I'm curious how that works, and how far down the risks extend.

TickTok Activated Softforks with Paul Sztorc
Loved having Paul on the show! Would love to see him back again! (Miss you, Chris!) One thing I really like about Monero, that I simply don't think Bitcoin can fix at this point, is the ability for the average person to mine using consumer hardware. My current system is I mine Monero (P2pool FTW), I buy Bitcoin.

kinda annoyed Chris hasn't used my donated server as a node. it's got dual xeons man! This bring said, I have some older GPUs I might be able to ship in over. A topic that might be worth mentioning is this small market where folks buy up lost wallets from their original owners who forgot the passkey and work on cracking the passphrase. p.s. I started listening due to shoutouts from Chris from LUP.

My first boost to BDP! Good content+format: 10-12 chapters per ep is a sweet spot. About this ep's topics, I find US fiat-BTC on-&offramps already too locked down for newcomers even if willing to comply w/KYC. Dumb algo gatekeepers block/close exchange accounts w/o opportunity to meet human decisionmakers to make right; no legal recourse. Maybe this will spur more P2P trade+circular econ. I'm bullish BTC as a long-term hedge, but I don't expect to pay SATs for food+shelter any time soon in USA.
